In light of the current global health crisis, all of our Cipriani locations will be temporarily closed as of March 16.

We plan to reopen as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. In the meantime, we will continue to support our communities, customers and employees any way we can.

Located in lively Soho, Cipriani Downtown, a more casual version of Harry Cipriani, features classics from Harry’s Bar in Venice and traditional Cipriani service. Beautifully designed with changing artwork on the walls, the restaurant offers outdoor dining when the weather is agreeable, serving lunch and dinner in a party-like atmosphere.

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!

Estuve con mi pareja y ha sido una de las mejores noches en NY que hemos pasado. Buena cena, muy buena atención. Algo costoso, pero el área donde está ubicado el restaurante es de esperar.

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.

Having great expectations from a previous visit some 15 years ago and also knowing the restaurant is a NYC icon, I was sorely let down. We arrived to chaos. Despite arriving on time for our reserved table, not early, not late, there were queues out of the door. Once shuffled in by a doorman, with no direction, we found ourselves amongst a throng of people in a similar position, hanging around without a clue what to do. The waiting staff, looking very professional in their white tux jackets, were plentiful, but equally seemed without a clue. It was only when I looked in earnest at one that they asked if we’d checked in the the manager. The manager? And who was he amongst this chaotic group of people. Eventually he was pointed out and he seated us almost where we stood, in the thoroughfare. Finally seated, the experience improved with attentive staff, a good menu and well prepared food. What we hadn’t anticipated though was, even with one of the cheaper bottles of wine, with the taxes and service charge, this proved to be one very expensive Saturday night out.

The food was decent, and enjoyable, but it was not great. The service was terrible. The waiter came to the table and just stared at us for our order. He didn’t say the usual like, “ Hi, I’m... Are you ready for me to take your order?” It was very strange. They also took longer then they should have when it was not at all crowded.

Mis hijos son alérgicos a huevo y frutos secos, y advertimos al restaurante. Mi hijo pequeño tuvo una reacción alérgica grave por algún error en la cocina, que todavía no han admitido. Se llamó al 911 para pedir una ambulancia de urgencia para tratarlo allí. La camarera estuvo muy preocupada, pero el encargado de Cipriani ni nadie en nombre de Cipriani se ha disculpado ni nos ha dado una explicación. Una irresponsabilidad en cualquier caso, pero más aún en un restaurante de esta categoría.

Cipriani Soho is a far cry from the Cipriani midtown that I remember so fondly. The food was just OK, the service was slow, and the ambiance was by no means memorable. It was fine for a quick lunch, but would expect much more for dinner.
