The service was great, location is great, view is great... but food is mediocre. I've eaten here a few times because it's so darn convenient, but the food has been bland each time.

We had a reservation for 8pm...20 after 8 we still had not been served not even for water. The place wasn’t even busy and three people were cleaning tables. Finally the waitress who kept looking are way asked one of the other girls to bring us water. We left and went someplace better, where I might add were happy to serve us!
I had a bad experience a few years ago with this place, thought I’d give it another try...never again or would I ever recommend this place. It’s a shame because it has a cool location.

Good experience - would like to try again in daytime hours to enjoy the view. Overall good but was surprised at how limited the menu offering was - expected to see another 30 percent in options to choose from in a place like this - also found the pizza option front and center a bit of an odd thing for the type of place it is..... Also a bit surprised to see the hostess and our waitress dressed in basic faded jeans - a bit too casual in my opinion - even Boston Pizza staff etc are dressed a bit better.

There's nothing else like it in the city! It's just so cool, hanging over the river with a view of the Human Rights museum. The building itself is an original warehouse/industrial type structure that is overflowing with character. The food wasn't awesome this time, which is too bad because it has been better in the past. But I'll try again because I want this place to thrive. It's classy and hip.

Our co-op board met there for our annual Board Appreciation Lunch and found that the service was wonderful and well worth the money. It was great! Thank you again to everyone that was there. I'll definitely go back.

Three of us went to CIBO before attending a Friday evening performance at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, so we had 90 minutes tops. The service was prompt and super friendly, and the food was terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to CIBO. Highly recommended.

We had a very good server. Our experience was good except that they were changing their menu the next day so they were out of things. I would suggest that the server tell customers that up front as it is always so difficult to make the decision and then you are told they do not have it. 2 out of 4 in our group had to decide all over again.

Went with friends for dinner. Drinks and dinner were both very good, our server was extremely attentive and kind. They have desserts from Jenna Rae Cakes which are amazing (we shared the s'mores bar and the salted caramel apple cheesecake). A little pricey but a good place to go out on a date or dinner for special occasions.

The Restaurant has a nice view of the river and very cozy modern decor and design.
Didnt care for the one option for soup “carrot soup”. The pastas were tasty enough,steak dish was disappointing with small tough portion of meat and tiny salad.

Monthly friends get together, great setting, food and service. Cibos is now our go to restaurant for our group.
We never feel rushed and lots of time allowed to eat, visit and catch up. It was a belated birthday for one of our group, candles put in dessert and great response to requests.
Thanks again

Cibo is probably one of our favourite restaurants in the city. The ambiance is great, the food is delicious, and they even have a very popular local bakery make some special items for their dessert menu. Would recommend.

We have wanted to try Cibo for a while know and it seems to slip our minds that we have not experienced it yet. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, the atmosphere along the river, the small venue size gives the restaurant a cozy feel and the food was excellent.
