We have been going to Harry Cipriani for 30 years, though living in CT we can't get there more than once or twice a year. Though I doubt the staff remembers us, we always feel welcomed and important. The atmosphere is comfortably elegant. The menu staples are reliably wonderful, starting with the crisp-cold Bellinis and best-ever breadsticks. Not inexpensive, but always fresh and simply and thoughtfully prepared.

Service is amazing! Drinks were strong. Wine list extensive. Food was impeccable. It's very crowded with tables practically touching each other. Fortunately the guests at the other tables were enjoyable and chatty making the tight quarters a blessing in disguise.

Harry Cipriani remains my favorite place in NY in spite of absurd prices; fabulous at lunch and Sergio (manager) always greets you like a daily guest with warmth and caring.

they gave is the worst table next to the kitchen. all I could hear was plate noises from the kitchen. that table should not exist. we had to teturn the pasta, because it was overcooked and dry. the waiter told us it was suposed to be like that, but we hve eaten at that restaurant a hundred times. We know how the pasta is suposed to be. extremely expensive overall. bad experience for me. I’m not comming back.

I was charged twice on my dinner and neither the restaurant nor my bank takes responsibility, how very unfortunate. My only fault was to go have dinner there, i ended up paying double the amount.. Wouldn't recommend to a friend in order to avoid a similar situation.

The staff were lovely, it got busier and busier but we had a number of attentive servers. Food was fine. Expensive but paying for the label, as they say. Great fun to watch the wait staff weave in and out from kitchen to tables as well as watching the parade of customers.

Harry Cipriani is a classic New York high end dining experience with excellent service and top notch food at a high price. The pasta can be done as an entree or a starter and is not to be missed. For the price the portion size is good and the specials are well worth it. Dessert is overpriced at 21 dollars for a slice of cake. Overall though a great experience and if you are looking to splurge an excellent option .

Very rude waiters and very inconsistent table service.
If they knew who you were they provided great service. If they do not know you they ignored you. Plates, wine glasses, and water glasses sat after each course.
We had to ask for basics such as water and were not offered the fresh rolls.
Artichoke salad was served in a small bowl instead of a flat dinner plate as they did before. The old presentation was beautiful. This one covered by a large slice a Parmesan cheese. The olive oil and lemon juice concentrated at the bottom of the bowl and and made the salad a soggy mess. My husbands gnocchi was overcooked and sauce watery. Presentation was a mess. I had ordered the baked green tagliolini and received the plain noodle not spinach as ordered. The dish was much too salty. We have eaten at this restaurant each time we fly in to NY but we will not return. There are too many other Italian restaurants who provide excellent service with a smile and much better quality of food.
Scadente...Salta questo ristorante

I had informed them prior that we were coming for a birthday and an anniversary they first stuck us in a table in the back in the corner by the kitchen that was a table for two even though we were four we did asked to move and they put us by the front door which was acceptable but also not great the waiter was extremely rude and surly when we were asking about the menu also my husband wanted spaghetti with chunks of tuna and he said there was not one piece of fish in his pasta I will not go back there again
If you are going to charge those kind of prices at least give people courtesy and the value of the food that they ordered

What once a was quiet lovely, attentive staff and fabulous food is now non the less. Very disappointed by the moment they am squeezed us into a row of tables and did not place us in an area with less people and privacy.
Waiter was short and rude. He would not give us the time of day when asking questions about the selections, he acted unconcerned and preoccupied. With what? Who know.

The pumpkin ravioli were not even properly stuffed as the main dish was mainly pasta and drenched butter.
We waited 19 minutes as the waiters passed by our table without taking out hardly eaten food and asking for dessert.

I brought my friend who i was an out to impress by the reputable Cipriani’s, much to my dismay I left apologizing for an experience I have never had there before.
Sad

Very saddened I had to write a review like this when indeed my past experiences were more pleasant.

Christmas Dinner and the service as always was fabulous!
We hadn’t been there in 8 months. The ambiance, food, and service was terrific. Loved the pasta bolognese and the meringue vanilla cake was delicious. My husband had the Chilean sea bass snd loved his dinner too. Our waiters and all serves were attentive as they always are.

Absolutely atrocious service. Repeatedly brought out wrong orders and then when were out of one of the dishes ordered tried to pass off another pasta dish instead rather than ever advising that were no longer serving one of the items on the menu. When raised this with the waiter he was unable to comprehend the problem. Manager addressed issues but better skilled and trained wait staff should be the norm at this price point:
