The restaurant was extremely cold and uncomfortable for such a nice place. Had to keep my coat on as did my business partner the entire time. Even the waiter, who was extremely helpful said he was cold and had talked to the manager about it.

The food was good, not spectacular and we requested and received a quiet table so that we could conduct our business.

My husband and I visited at 5pm on a Sunday night. The host was very friendly, and the restaurant was mostly empty. We ordered the rib eye and the stuffed chicken marsala, and then waited approximately 30 minutes for our food to be prepared. The rib eye was fabulous, though lacking the described onions, but the chicken was overcooked. After delivering our food, the waiter only returned to drop off the bill, so we had no opportunity to request that the chicken be remade. Then our credit card didn't work with their system, and no one was able to determine the issue. Overall the experience could have been better, especially based on the cost and the way the restaurant sells itself as a destination for fine dining.

We occasionally go for Sunday Brunch. This time, the dessert buffet and the fresh fruit and salads were substantially diminished from the usual options. Many food options were frequently empty. Also, at least twice there were no plates available...dozens of people were standing around waiting for plates. Not very organized today.

We had a 7 PM reservation but were not seated until 7:25 PM and when seated we were escorted to the most undesirable table in the back corner of the bar area and told that was all there was. At that point, the evening got much better. Our server, Zena, was excellent. Friendly, courteous and quick, she got drinks and appetizers going immendiately. As always, the food at C.I.'s is excellent and service once seated was superb.

Great service from the moment we walked in the door. Tony, our server, was exceptionally good at answering menu questions and making us feel welcomed.

We were early for our reservation and seated immediately. It was a Valentine's date. They had a great specialty meal option for the evening. Our server forgot to mention addition specials not on the menus. The service was otherwise very courteous, quick and attentive without being intrusive. The waterfront view is always amazing.

The food was good. But I had the Prime Rib and when it came, the meat look like they cut it with a saw. Presentation was terrible. They did not give any juice for the meat. The horseradish was terrible. The meat otherwise was tender and tasty. The whole meal was good.

Food was barely warm when served. Asked for it to be heated but to not replace the food with new serving. They replaced the food with new, but had very little sauce, rice was dry and food still wasn't hot. If I have to take it home to heat it they way it should be, what's the point of eating out?
