Good place, but wouldn’t go there anytime soon.
Food was fine, nothing too crazy.
But worth it to get their vanilla meringue cake and white truffles when they are in season.

I would give Cipriani 0 star and if even possible a -10 rating.

When NY opened again after the shutdown, we decided to eat at Cipriani to support restaurants in our area.

It took us a month before we were able to get a reservation. We know Cipriani is popular and such a hot spot but didn't consider it's like making a reservation at Per Se or hard to get reservation restaurants.

We finally have a reservation. We showed up on time. There was a line of people waiting for their reservation, but the line was moving along fine. When we got in front of the line, we waited a few minutes before someone came to ask us about our reservation. After maybe another five minutes, someone came, and we told them we have a 7:45 pm. The head waiter stopped by to ask us AGAIN; we told him and proceeded to wait.

Well .... We were never seated at the restaurant. We never had a chance to eat, let alone see the menu. We also never spoke to anyone again because no one came to get us. Customers that they know are the ones that are being entertained. The couple who are next to us were chatting with hosts the entire time, ignoring us. We decided to leave and go to Broome Street Cafe, which has way better food, and the staff is terrific. It's not fancy, but have a better ambiance, food, and staff.

We will never go to this restaurant again. For anyone reading this review, there are better restaurants in the Soho area. Mamo, Arturos, Aurora are an excellent replacement for Cipriani.

The ambiance is not even pleasant, and the people that work there are just awful and unfriendly. The only time they entertain customers is if you either know any of the staff or you're dressed up nicely - like a rich person.

I have honestly never written a bad review before but I felt as though I had to for this! I have been so excited to go to Ciprianis for a long time however it was a terrible experience. The service staff were beyond rude and barely paid any attention to us throughout the whole meal. The food was not good either, I had the veal pasta and the pasta still felt slightly hard, not what I would expect from a high end restaurant. I wanted to try the vanilla cake for dessert but when I saw it was $17 per slice I didn’t bother!

We have been to other Cipriani restaurants where we have had better service. It was fine. Just won't be going back. The hostess was rude. The bartender was very nice, our server was okay, just not over the top.

Wow, so, we are city foodies. Price point never matters when it comes to good, quality food. We will rave about food from a food truck, to high end luxury food; we are not picky. But wowww, was this bad. The price made it even more insulting. As I was telling my wife, "Taste this rice. It's overcooked" the smell of burning rice overtook the entire restaurant. You had waiters hovering over all the tables, and yet it took time for our plates to be taken away. The veal tasted like the frozen sausages I microwave for my son when I'm too lazy to make him breakfast. My wife orders the same plate everywhere, and she said the ravioli, "looked and tasted like the ones we order in Peapod". Then the staff, although we had to call them for more alcohol and to clear are plates, felt entitled to a better tip. I would like to note, it is HARDDDDDDD to get me to tip less than 20%. I gave $5 from a $200+ meal.

Disappointed by the venue. I’ve heard of that mythique Italian place in nyc before I go. So I was expecting much better concerning the place, the food and the ambiance. I’ve booked a table via opentable and when we arrived they asked us to wait for more than an hour... so not any advantage to book in advance. The food was over expensive for the quality and the quantity. Very disappointed by the restaurant and its reputation. Unfortunately won’t come back.

Honestly, we were so excited to enjoy a meal here and it was terrible. Our reservation wasn’t honored, nobody was willing to help us or provide assistance, it was loud, there was no room. It’s great in theory but not at all worth the effort.
