They would not seat us for over 45 Minutes from out reservation time and it was clear that models etc could walk in and be seated. They shrugged and stared at me when I asked why. I didn’t want to start slipping the host money to be seated. We left and they didn’t care at all.

My family and I have made Cipriani Downtown our destination restaurant for all of our family celebrations. The food is consistently superb, and the warm and upbeat ambiance makes for a very positive environment for any occasion. We love Cipriani and highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

Took 45 minutes to sit at our table although we were prompt with our reservation. The management was friendly but they took care of their regulars who arrived after us, before us. But this is expected with high rollers. I like the Miami venue far much better and next time I will visit the flagship restaurant in Midtown. Food also is expensive even for NYC standards. The servers are really good and fast, responding to our requests promptly. The bright thing was Boris Becker showing up for dinner. Made the experience better.

I guess its a good place to go see young hip looking Soho people. But, by high NYC food standards Cipriani is a poor choice of a place to eat.

We were a table of four that had a reservation at 9:15..We arrived at 9:10 and were asked to wait 10m (not a big deal). We waited and finally sat down. I had been to various Cipriani restaurants across the USA and out of all the delicious plates on the menu, the gnocchi pomodoro was my favorite. When we finally decided to order, I asked if they had the gnocchi. They said they didn’t have it.. (I was wondering since out of all the Cipriani restaurants, they always had the gnocchi.. But otherwise it was fine). My sisters ordered the eggplant parmigiana and my friend ordered the Milanese.. 10 minutes later, the waiter comes to advise us that there was no more eggplant parmigiana.. We were all looking for something else to eat since they already did not have some of their best sellers.. After they ordered, the appetizers took about 30m to come, even though it was just a carpaccio and a steak tartar. Soon after, we had to ask the waiter a couple of times to know whether the food was coming. The waiter said it would be out shortly. The table next to us, who arrived about 30m earlier had their food arrive before ours even though we basically ordered the same things. Finally, the saddest part was the desert.. We were going to order the ice cream, which is usually the best part of a dinner at Cipriani. They said the ice cream would take 30m to come.. (Yes it’s fresh and homemade, but 30m was too long to wait for desert. Mind you it was already 11:30 and my friend and sisters were tired). Other than those things,
The food is good
The service is good
The price is ok ($$)
I would recommend going to try the food and restaurant.
But, if you were to go, I’d recommend the other Cipriani in NY, the service and food is much faster.

Had reservation but table was not ready and they would not seat me until my entire party arrived. Sat in an uncomfortable bar stool for 10 minutes, in a completely empty restaurant with about 9 staff literally just standing around that didn’t even offer me a beverage. I kept being told that a manager would find my table but that didn’t happen until my party arrived and we literally had to find him in the restaurant. Everyone in my party enjoyed the lunch and had several cocktails but the customer service was sub par at best.

We reserved for 20:00. We were seated at 20:20. Then after getting out first course we had to wait for more than half an hour for our main course which was just ok. After paying it took then an additional 20 minutes to give me back my credit card.

Nothing was done without repeatedly nagging the service
