It was our 5th Anniversary and we arrived at 10 PM that was the hour of our reservation (and the restaurant is supposed to be open until 11:45 PM) and the restaurant was closed! Nobody informed us that the restaurant would close, nobody sent us a message or called us. We went to other restaurants to eat and all of them were closing soon or were full. We almost didn’t have a special diner at our anniversary and thanks god TAO Downtown received us to have diner at 11 PM. I am very disappointed with this restaurant and have no plans to come back to Cipriani ever again.

The restaurant was Closed because there was a problem with water and they didn’t inform us so we go to our reservation and we found close door.
It’s inadmisible

That’s unbelievable! The worst dinner ever, especially for my schoolmate who was visiting me in NYC.
I’ve been in Cipriani at 42nd St and liked there, but that place too small and so crowded, people are screaming, you cannot normally speak and hear your companion. The food was not so good for the real italian place. The tablecloth was dirty, one of our chair was aluminum wicker like in a cheap cafe and they gave that table for ladies 😖

Great experience overall. I don’t really think people come here for value though, so that question I don’t think applies to here. Wait staff extremely friendly, and attentive. The atmosphere was great and the food was fantastic. Great place over all, I will definitely be back and people should go.

La comida y el servicio muy buenos, el ambiente interesante. Excepto un individuo que vino a saludar a una señora muy guapa y distinguida, a quien todo mundo venía a saludar, este individuo casi se sienta en nuestera mesa, por supuesto dando la espalada y tuve que pedirle que se moviera, nada inherente al restaurnte, pero si a un comensal

Cipriani always lives up to its impeccable reputation. Everything from the breadsticks to desserts and everything in between are perfectly prepared and delicious. It’s not inexpensive, but you’re paying for perfection, and they totally deliver on that! Can’t wait to go back soon!

Despite I made a reservation for 9.30 PM we had to wait until 11.00 PM
The manager told us 5 minutes every time we asked for the table
Was unacceptable
Only reason we wait was because we made some friends at the bar and we didn’t want to bother them
Obviously we leave without dinner and very upset

We waited 90 minutes to be sat despite having a reservation. Food as always doesn’t disappoint, the branzino was probably the best I have ever had. The host and bar service was disorganized.

Food is really teasty. But, the présentation have a terrible lake of finition and proudness.

The service is ok, but it’s cold not really friendly. Not funny. I felt like a Numbers.

I wen’t from Montréal and then cross NYC from Middtown to came there.

Waitstaff were nice, but had to ask numerous times for several different things. Couple of guys at table next to us obviously wanted people to know they were important, multiple phone conversations about stock purchases. Really kind of killed the anniversary celebration for my wife and I. Food was good, but not worthy of a $300-400 dinner for two...

Had a very obnoxious table next to us who were rude and disrespectful of the other diners around them. They kept banging into our table and spilling our drinks. When brought to their attention there were no apologies and management never addressed. Have had good experiences in the past, but probably won’t be going back.

The food was good but very bad service. We reserved at 8pm and get our table at 9.30pm. They said everybody has to wait. Only tourists had to wait. People who arrived at 9Pm get their table directly. And they knew the chef of the restaurant. Very disappointed.

Wine barely drinkable
$11 for mineral water.
$34 for a small dish of pasta.
I don’t mind paying for quality (I had Dinner at David Bouley the night before) but this was a rip off

For a few minutes of delay, the restaurant gave our table away. Told us it would have taken 20 minutes to be seated while it took almost an hour. Although the menu seemed to be comprehensive, most of the food was “not available” and supposedly sold out. This was a lie, as all of a sudden, once the restaurant understood our disappointment in choosing a specific dish and being told that it was not available, one of the chosen dishes became available. Not worth it, there are so many superior restaurants in New York...

I was in the city with a friend and heard about this restaurant and made a reservation. It is a small but authentic Italian eatery and the food was absolutely fantastic! It reminded me of eating pasta in Italy several years ago and I will be back next time I visit NYC!

We felt the food was good but very small portion sizes at expensive prices. The cocktails were tiny as well as pricey. I understand that some restaurants are expensive and I love to enjoy fine dining but I felt rushed and frankly if you are not a regular there, you are not treated as well. The restaurant was busy and I recognize they need to turn the tables faster but it was not nearly as good as I had hoped and not indicative of a large bill at the end.
