The food was great and the service was great. The issue we had was that we had to climb stairs to get to our table which was in a very room. I've dined here many times and never had to do this. I wish I would've known this before hand so I could've requested not to sit upstairs in a small room.

My first (and last) experience at Cibreo was not good. My party of four was seated upstairs at a corner table with little light and no ambiance even though there were many nicer tables available.

Service was slow in all aspects of table service including waiting 15 minutes for a refill of a glass of wine to delivery of our food which we actually had to get up and request! Our entries were dry possibly from sitting under warming lights waiting for our server.

From someone who dines out on a regular basis, I have to say this was one of the poorest experiences I've had and I was embarrassed to have suggested Cibreos to my guests!

Terrible The food was mediocre or less. Service very fair. We thought the convenience to the theater would be worthwhile but never again!!

We stopped dining at Cibreo after poor service time and time again. We are season ticket holders to the Playhouse so we have eaten at Cowell & Hubbard for the last 2 seasons. My friend wanted to give Cibreo another try, so we did. About a month ago we had a wonderful dining experience with Mike. We decided we would start coming back to Cibreo again in the future. On our next visit to Cibreo Mike was not on staff that day. We had a woman who was one of the worst servers ever. She seemed bothered to be waiting on us. The service was so slow and the restaurant was only half full. Looks like we will not be returning to Cibreo for the 2016-2017 Broadway series. It is a shame that your wait staff is consistency poor.

Lasagna was a hearty serving of pure deliciousness!!!! Do NOT recommend spaghetti however. Desert was to die for ( in a good way ).

The food was good but we had issues with the service. First , Our server failed to bring bread to our table, We were seated at 6:30 by 7:00 I had to go find her to place our order because we had theater tickets for 8:00, then I also had to search for her to get our check at 7:45 ! We were almost late for the show !! Very upsetting !good thing it was just across the street!

One of my favorite restaurants in downtown Cleveland! I am never disappointed, and this visit was no different. The food and service are outstanding and they are attentive to time constraints due to the Playhouse/theater being across the street. I highly recommend this restaurant! I have been here on very busy nights; this visit was not too busy, but the experience was as excellent as I have come to expect. I was with a friend who was there for the first time.....and loved it! Our server was Lydia and was attentive and knowledgeable.

Unfortunately the service for this visit was sub par. We had theater tickets for an 8 curtain call. We had made him aware of this. He disappeared for over 15 minutes once we concluded our meal and we were unable to order a dessert that we had plan to order. It was already 7:25 and he told us he could get it out to us in ten minutes but we did not want to rush through dessert plus we had older women with us. He then brought our bill as one even though we had told him to separate the bill. And the real kicker is the restaurant wasn't even busy.... 25% full maybe. We will come again just for its location across from Playhouse.

Our group of 5 had dinner at Cibreo's on Saturday evening. The food and service were excellent! We each had something different from the menu, and the vote was unanimous - we'll gladly dine there again.

We have been to cibreo several times and always had a wonderful experience. We were going to the theater and did not order drinks which I believe impacted our service. My meal, the special, was good. My husband had the chicken parmigiana. The chicken was over cooked and dry. He said the sauce tasted like it came from a can. The manager always comes over to ask about the meal. There were several large tables that he checked on frequently. We were ignored. Overall I was quite disappointed from a place that I had previously enjoyed.

Despite being 1 of 5 tables service was very slow. Food was mediocre at best and very overpriced.

Small portions (didn't get full and had to go to another restaurant after a two course meal at cibreo to get full, service by Sean was great however!!
All in all a great experience - will return soon!

The service was slow. Food was good--not great. Had heard mixed reviews of this restaurant. Too many other good choices so won't go back.

Great place to have dinner before a show at Playhouse Square. The service is very efficient and they ask you what time your show begins. The noise level is a bit high, but the food is good.
