Los meseros platican demasiado con los comensales y no dejan que fluya la conversación. La comida regular, los
Muebles viejos pero la ubicación es muy buena.

All in all it was a lovely experience. The attention is great, they had run out of burrata which was a little disappointing.
It is a little loud, but luckily we sat on a corner that we were protected from the noise.
All the people who work there are extremely nice! They make you feel the best!
The best of all is the feeling you get from eating at Harry Cipriani, the happiness is contagious!

The waiters are SOOO bad, can’t wait to get you out and don’t offer any insights to the menu, they just hand the menu to you and are so rude! Then they poor you a $25.00 wine by the glass in a 2oz pour!!! I seriously asked the waiter where the rest of it was? Don’t bother going! There are so many good Italian restaurants in NYC like Il Tonello, no one needs Cipriani!

Fue la última cena de nuestra luna de miel! Todo fue excelente, excepto por una mesa muy ruidosa y desubicada. Los mozos y managers se disculpaban continuamente pero no eran ellos el problema, vamos a volver y esperamos no cruzarnos con estas personas tan “ruidosas” por llamarlos de algún modo.

This was my first time dining at Cipriani’s—and the experience was worth the wait!! I just wish we had eaten here many years ago while we were living in NYC, we would have enjoyed Cipriani’s on a more regular schedule. We had a warm welcome from the maitre d followed by excellent service and although we had high expectations, the food was even better than expected. The bresaola and salmon appetizers were perfect and our entrees—papardelle bolognese, veal cheeks and osso buco—were spot on. The bottle of Amarone was a perfect compliment, thanks to just the right amount of input from our waiter. We had to try the famous meringue cake; that, while a little sweet, was a real treat.

In summary, we were treated well with great service and excellent food. Thank you Cipriani’s!! We will be back as often as possible!!

I should have read other reviews before booking a table at Harry Cipriani. Tables are crowded together so that other peoples' conversations are clearly audible and if there was an emergency, exit from the restaurant would be impeded. The noise was almost unbearable. It was impossible to have a conversation. Our table was next to the servers' staging area so we were treated to the rattle and clang of dishes and cuttlery on top of other noises. The food was mixed in quality and NOT a good value ($22 for a small bowl of soup that cost pennies to make: REALLY!!). Although my husband enjoyed his fish, I felt that I prepare tastier pasta at home. I am not a name dropper so being able to say I have been to this famous restaurant is meaningless. In fact, our experience was so unpleasant that I am embarrassed to say that we spent so much for such a lousy evening. We couldn't wait to leave.

This restaurant was recommended to me by The Plaza Hotel. The manager greeted his regular customers with great enthusiasm. We were not greeted at all. We were shown to a table that had a perfect view of the desert stand.
We waited and waited and waited to be served. Once we gave our order it came out in an acceptable amount of time.
My husband's food was not fit to eat and I didn't get what I ordered.
The server was rude and the price of a 8 oz coke was $8.
It was one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to.

Save you money, so overrated, everything is a up-sell, the night started with appetizers which were good, the main courses were terrible, lasagna was uneatable, its a place to be seen and nothing more. The wait staff added bottled water to our bill at $23.00 which we never ordered or drank then gave an attitude when we questioned it. Four people and $700 later was a huge disappointment, the table for 4 was tiny to say the least and you are cramped and uncomfortable . With so many great restaurants in Manhattan this is a no brainer, save you time and money, try the polo club...

One of my favorite places on earth. If you’ve never been, two words of advice.

1. Get the Bollini. Don’t ask just drink.
2. Save room for the Vanilla Meringue cake

I am Italian. I have eaten at the very best restaurants in the world as well as exceptional diners, pubs and food halls.
This meal/restaurant was a complete waste of time and money. Cipriani should be ashamed. Horrible. ‘Tapas ‘ size entrees with very little taste. Rigatoni was COLD and lifeless. No cheese offered by waiter. Eggplant Parmesan was burnt and half of it stuck to bottom of plate.
Carrabas has better food. I am absolutely stunned.
Basta Cipriani. No more.

A once in a lifetime meal. The most amazing eggplant parmigiana and lasagna I’ve ever had. Amazing Bellinis. Wonderful service. The tables are close together and we did not enjoy the rude and nosy gentleman sitting next to us. That was the only negative.

They split every course for us so we could each have a portion of the antipasto, then the Baked Ham Taglioni (a must-try!!!!) and finished with the veal rack. The specialty dessert was so fluffy and light! A great night and fun people-watching too as everyone was in a festive mood.

Considering we were dining in NYC, prime time on Valentines day, things went fairly well. Ambiance is great, food and service was good. As seems to be the case on these types of holidays, restaurants tend to want to maximize their volume and profits - can't blame them too much - hotels and airlines do the exact same thing. I would recommend this restaurant, maybe go early on a snowy, cold winter Tuesday night.
