First time to Cibo. We were looking for an early Father’s Day dinner with our adult children. Amazing, we are very happy with the service and food! Defiantly will return.
We had eaten at this restaurant several times in the past and it was good. We booked it for a post theatre dinner thinking it would be a good reliable choice. What a mistake that was. Our dinner was just not good. The meatballs lacked any real flavour, the spaghetti vongole was the blandest I have ever eaten, the sauteed kale could have done with some garlic and flavour, the only half decent thing we had was the creamy polenta which was good. I now understand that the chef has changed and this is unfortunate. I am sure that others agree with my assessment because the restaurant was 3/4 empty on a Friday night, that says it all.
Used to go regularly until a couple of years ago. Menu has changed. Food very good. Will probably become a regular again.
Everything was beautiful the service the food the atmosphere and no loud music so you could talk easily
The tagliatelle bolognese was delicious! Worth the visit for this alone.
We went before a VSO POPS show and it was lovely! I ordered from the set menu arranged for the VSO diners and enjoyed it. It was stacked in favour of seafood lovers and as I am allergic, I had one option for each of the starter and the main course but they were great tasting. My spouse ordered branzino which was delicious(just slightly over cooked). Our service was excellent and we always enjoy the ambience at Cibo.
Dinner menu selection for pasta was more limited compared to the last visit. However, pasta selected was still excellent. Disappointed in the tiramisu dessert since it contained no ladyfingers & was not in the traditional square format & was rather bland tasting.
It’s a nice place before the concert or any other occasion, food is good quality and lovely atmosphere and decor.
Recently had a wonderful experience at Cibo and would recommend. Interesting cocktails, great selection of wines including some reasonably priced. Food was delicious - I had the tagliatele and the past was cooked to perfection. Wonderful and attentive service, and the restaurant provided a complimentary dessert for the person in our group celebrating a birthday. We'll be back!
Before theatre dinner for 4. They had a special fixed theatre menu. Very good. Service was excellent.
There is nothing particularly wrong with the food or service, but the quality of the food has clearly deteriorated. I came here a year ago and the pasta was amazing. The pasta and ravioli were both stale and the sauce was below average. For that price it’s a miss.
The only positive is the tiramisu for desert which was amazing
The ambiance was great! The prosciutto e melone was delightful and the main course of roasted duck was superb. My husband had ravioli al brasato which was excellent . I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The best was desert and an espresso!
Otherwise the food tasted bland and the presentation not what it was before.
Enjoyable experiences with good food and service. But no one in Vancouver can do a proper tirimasu, although this one came close.
Great service and excellent food. Highly recommended!
Amazing food, excellent and friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back soon.
A hidden gem in dt!
Best gnocchi and tiramisu! Wonderful service.
We had heard that the food was not good and I must say we were delighted with the food and the service. Bit expensive but worth it for the convenience and the excellence. We were eating early so the restaurant was not full and might be noisy if it were... high ceilings. We would definitely go back.
We were meeting with our wedding officiant for the first time. This was the perfect place to have an awesome meeting! It’s quiet, yet vibrant and so beautiful
The restaurant is located in a hotel diagonally opposite the Orpheum Theatre, and i understand it is quite busy with pre-show dinners. We dined late on a Tuesday evening when it was very quiet. The meals are good and service is prompt and friendly.
Ridiculously small portions, absolutely guaranteed you will walk away hungry ... $125.00 ($145.00 with tip) for four and we had to stop at a corner store afterwards and buy crackers and peanut butter to make up for the lack of food served. No bread offered (even though there were bread plates on the table and this IS, after-all, an Italian restaurant), no tea or coffee offered and a small glass of luke-warm water that was never filled. What food was served was actually very good ... but the unbelievably small portions are simply stupid, like it's a joke. Never again ... ever.
Hello BrianM, Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to write a review. We take guest comments very seriously and are terribly sorry that we underwhelmed your expectations. Your points regarding the food portions will be shared with our kitchen team to continually fine-tune our commitment to the highest levels of service excellence. I hope that you will allow us the opportunity to serve you again in the future. Sincerely, CIBO Management Team
Portions very small for price unless you get the three course special. Food was okay. Would not go back again unless I was staying at the hotel. I picked this place because of the 1,000 point open table bonus.
Def a go to spot! Should be more popular than it is. Great staff as well, will be back!
Great food. Great service . A bit noisy but great atmosphere. Will return for sure and will recommend as well.
Perfect place to go before going to a show .
My wife and I have enjoyed Cibo many times before but this last meal was a letdown. I had the 6oz ribeye which was at least 50% fat while she had a meal of only two lamb popsicles which were also mainly just fat. While dessert was very good, it’ll be awhile before we go back to Cibo
It was early to there wasn't a noise level which was great. The service was very good...attentive, pleasant and efficient. The food however we found heavy-handed and not well balanced hence not a good value for the cost.
We went to Cibo on the Sunday night of the long weekend. Traffic was brutal and I tried to call three times to advise we would be late. No answer. We discovered when we arrived that the server was all alone on the floor, so she was too busy to answer the phone. She was running the whole evening even though she seemed clearly under the weather. We tipped her well. Who knows the reason behind it, but they were understaffed.
The rest of the experience was fine. I had the Pork Belly, which was really good. My wife had the lamb special which she said was just OK. Dessert was tasty. We shared the olive oil cake.
The overall experience was good. The atmosphere and ambience is nice and calming. The food was good, not outstanding. The server was attentive and accommodating, but overworked.
Food is terrible
Generally a pleasant environment and good food, though extraordinary.
One of the best tasty brunch! Puzzled why it's not a busy place at all....
great value for money and the service and food was fantastic.
PRO: Nice place, small and elegant. We tried the Dine Out 3 courses menu: the price was ok for the menu. Staff really nice and professional, good selection of wines. Lovely pannacotta, I loved the combination with basil. The Falanghina was super.
CONS: the burrata was amazing, but such a thin slice!same for prosciutto e melone, a little ungenerous portions. The Spaghetti were full of water (definitely too too much) and the vongole had an unpleasant back taste. The chocolate cake was good, but such a thin slice to be almost sad. The porchetta (isn't this pancetta arrotolata?) had a fatter taste than expected, but this is just my taste. I would not serve it with a leaf of kale, but again, it'my taste.
Generally I can't complain, not everything meet my expectations but it's a good restaurant. Not sure if we'll give another shot.
the table they gave us was close to the fireplace and the entire time we were there was not pleasant. i even asked to do something about it but nothing... ignored!
food wise, nothing out of the ordinary. the porchetta lack taste but it is tender. we were all rushing to just get out of the warm table. it was very uncomfortable.
the server we had was exceptional but the food was not anything to write home about. Other than the deserts ... we were definitely not impressed .
Excellent food. Excellent service. Will definitely return soon.
The food was delicious!
Had a wonderful Dine Out experience at Cibo! The three course meal was fabulous, the wine pairing recommendation on point and the service wonderful. I'd highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves and great night out.
Our server was fantastic! And food was delicious:) Excellent dining experience and highly recommend.
