                                            The food was delicious. The service was great, the food took awhile , which I couldn’t finish my beverage and had to ask for the bill during service . I would go back again, but need to keep lore time available. Again, food and the server was amazing

                                            I was visiting Winnipeg and went here for dinner, it was a beautiful setting by the river and had a trendy vibe. We enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich and the beef and beet salad. The food was yummy, server was friendly and service was perfect. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

                                            The hostess gave us attitude for showing up a few minutes ahead of our reservation time even though we weren't expecting to get sat early, we just wanted to let her know we were there. Then our server had zero personality, barely smiled and spoke so low we could barely hear her. Otherwise service was adequate but not stellar. The food was okay, bruschetta was plain tasting and all cold, expected the toppings to be warm but even if this was how it was meant to be it was very underwhelming. The rosee pasta was also bland and no salt, pepper or fresh parm in sight or offered. The mushroom pizza was the best of all items tried but still plain tasting. The highlight of our evening was the prosecco and wine ordered. The server rushed us out without offering a final cocktail to the individual in our foursome not drinking wine/prosecco, and disappeared. Must have been the end if her shift and she couldn't wait to get that tip. Anyway ambiance is great , wish the food and servuce was too

                                            Too much red meat on the menu. The chicken club was too big too bite.

                                            Our meals were delicious, very flavourful. The service was excellent. However Cibo needs to do some general maintenance of their dining chairs, must of them were ripped and the sponge was sticking out - they have seen better days. The women’s washroom was down to one stall as the other was ‘out of order’ and the sink and soap dispenser are in dire need of repair. It’s time to do some renovations. I understand restaurants are trying to catch up from the amount of money lost during COVID, but these seem like basic upkeep items. Hopefully they will get to them soon. Again the food was wonderful.

                                            We have eaten at Cibo’s in the past and enjoyed the experience much more. Last night the food for four of the five of us was so/so.

                                            Well,, When we arrived on time for our reservation we were greeted by the staff and told that we have to be out of the restaurant in 2 1/2 hours for another reservation. I have never been told when I have to leave before I have been seated. It was busy so I understand why the food took so long. My mother in law who needs glasses and receives eye injections for her vision noticed one of the waitresses seemed off. I look and found her outfit and dress attire not fitting or comfortable for us to look at and herself by the way she walked. She was wearing jeans that were to small for her and she was peacocking here chest out to show her breasts that were in a tight shirt with out a braw. My 7 year old son asked why she is walking that way. The food was good.. good portions, good tasting. The atmosphere was nice. I probably wont be back due to the staff.

                                            Honestly we come here ofter for many reasons. The atmosphere is beautiful and calm. Service is friendly and fast. The servers are very knowledgable and attentive. Food is always fast and fresh. Menu selection is great. Value foe food quality and portions is spot on. Parking can be tricky, as its all street parking so make sure you leave time to find parking if you make a reservations. Which I recommend to get seated right away.

                                            It was a little loud and hard to hear dinner conversation, but food was great and it’s a beautiful spot.

                                            The food came out kind of cold but it tasted good

                                            A great menu , reasonably priced for the quality of the food. The service was prompt and courteous allowing us to skip off to the theater in plenty of time.

                                            Love the environment and the cranberry mule was great. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Had the margarita pizza and it was good although a bit too over salted.

                                            Elegant yet cozy. The food is always exceptional, the staff is wonderful and the ambience is so lovely we make a point of going at least a few times a month.

                                            A friend was visiting from Vancouver. We’d been a few times and decided to take him there. We had been a few times prior and enjoyed the food, ambience and overall experience. Last nights dinner was not like the others. I’ll explain. We arrived at 6 pm , our reserved time. We were seated approximately 6 minutes later. By 6:18 our water glasses were filled. It was just after 6:30 that our server made an appearance to take our drink order. We should’ve ordered our entire meal at that time. The bar did not seem busy at all but it took why seemed like a long time but was only 13-15 minutes to receive our drinks. We quickly ordered appetizers and entrees as we were sure this was not going to be an evening like the others at Cibo. The food once it arrived was alright but not as good as we remembered. Overall we left feeling like we had been forgotten about in the back corner. Other tables arriving after us were served in a much timely manner.

                                            The music choice was poor. It felt like we were dining in a biker/dive bar. Very distracting from the overall experience!

                                            We enjoyed the food. It was very good. The hostess and servers were very friendly and keep drink refills coming and came an appropriate amount of times to check on us. The setting was nice and it was a relaxing lunch.
