I would recommend Cipriani for the energy and the ambiance. My wife and I felt the appetizers and main courses to be rather bland and needed to be spiced up. The price of the meal was exorbitant compared to the size and lack of taste of the meal. I would highly recommend the vanilla meringue pie. All together, I believe Cipriani's to be a place to go to for an after dinner drink and desert and to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local patronage.

Regretfully the cuisine of the former fifth Avenue location is not available at Downtown. Food is poor at best

Classic. Like eating In Italy. Food quality and preparation was on point. Although it was a great meal and experience I do have to say my visit in NYC did not compare to the one had in Miami. I think it was the level of personal service and atmosphere was hectic. Would I return? Yes absolutely.

The food that I ordered was overcooked (Branzino fish hard as stone) and the side dish of rice had some spoiled oil in it ( at least that's how it tasted). I asked the server to take away the food, he showed it and talked to the manager but, the manager didn't even bother to come to our table.
The bathrooms are dated and no one bothers to check how they look. A very unpleasant experience.

Overall the experience was good. The food was good, my plate was a little bit to salty but was ok. The desert in my opinion: the best part! And the service inside the restaurant was nice.

Unfortunately I really wanted to like Cipriani after hearing so many good reviews from friends. Our experience was everything but pleasant. Checking in for our reservation was a bit confusing. We stood at the entrance for several minutes, waiter after waiter walking by and not even greeting us. Then I asked a waiter where to check in and directed me to a manager. The manager still didn’t greet us, as I was about to tell him we had a reservation he immediately cut me off to ask for proof of vaccination and ID. He finally sat us down where we waited about 10 minutes to even get menus. We ordered, got our food and luckily the food was pretty amazing. We had their signature vanilla cake for dessert which was mouthwatering. Unfortunately I will never go back as I need my overall experience to be amazing not just the food. If you’re ok with rude waiters/management the food is definitely worth it.

We were so excited about going to Cipriani, and unfortunately this is what they served me. It was supposed to be sage butter ravioli. It was covered in oil (as if it had been microwaved) and soggy. So disappointing. The service was great, the cocktails were as well. Was not impressed by the food. For their reputation, and prices, I was expecting to be “wowed” by their food.

Service and food quality didn’t match the price. The restaurant is fueled by reputation of other locations.

I don't think this restaurant is worth the hype. I was very excited to bring my parents here, who were visiting from out of town, and I was disappointed to say the least. The restaurant seating is extremely tight and the noise level was very loud. Our waiter was not kind. My dad's entrée was served with a side of rice that was extremely undercooked and when he told the waiter, the waiter simply said "It's not undercooked it's al dente." This rice was crunchy and inedible it was not "al dente." The food was fine, but not worth the price. Both of the soups on their menu were flavorless. Again, I was just disappointed since so many people recommend Cipriani as a nice restaurant with delicious food. It was an average restaurant with average food and bad service, I don't plan to return.

In NY for a weekend and looking forward to a meal at Cipriani - so dissappointed- if you’re not in the Cipriani clique, you’re out but if you do know the staff and proprietor then your golden. Rude peoole talking about their wealth - not kind - dismissive waiters - do not go to this restaurant uness you are plastic and fake

Our waiter was the most miserable man. He barely spoke, did not greet us, after we got our appetizer he never came back. He forgot the wine and when we told him he didn’t answer he just brought it and put it on the other side of the table and walked away. We were very upset because we’ve been trying to get a reservation here for a very long time and were so excited given it was my boyfriends birthday. Won’t be coming back, not that it seems like they care.

Un bon service mais réellement j ai eu la impression que l’objectif principal est que vous finissiez le plus vite possible afin de libérer la table pour les prochain client.
La cuisine est bonne mais réellement normal rien d élaboré.

We visited Cipriani in 2008 and at that time it was fantastic. Now, in 2021, we repeated for our anniversary and it was an awful experience. The service is really poor, the price is not justifiable. My wife is Italian and she was really mad about the cooking of the risotto. I'd say that this place is all hype.
