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.

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:

My family and I love this place! We enjoy very much the service that everyone that works here gives us. It's nice to come into a place and everyone knows you and remembers what you enjoy. The food is never a disappointment. Let's not forget the Bellinis that Aldo makes.....Exceptional!

Rude, insulting staff that doesn't seem to care if you have a reservation or not. The service was so bad at this restaurant I'm not even sure why anyone would ever go back. Another couple that came in at the same time I did, was treated equally as bad and eventually walked out in the middle of their dinner. I should have done the same, because the service just got worse as the evening went on. Our waiter took our order and never came back, the maitre D, kept us waiting 45 min and didn't bother to even apologize and had a busboy seat us. It's no longer the place it used to be.

Took my wife for a date night in NYC. After reading the reviews, my expectations were pretty high. Space was a bit cramped and noisy. Service was good, but not what I would have expected. Wine glasses looked like a water glass from the local IHOP, and not appropriate for high-end wines in a high-end restaurant. I agree with other reviews that it is considerably overpriced. Good food, but I was underwhelmed.

We had been to Harry’s in Venice and wanted to cross this off our list. It’s stuffy , pricey and service slow Lunch took nearly 3 hours, but the food was delicious and the Bellini perfect. It’s an experience for sure !

I asked for a quiet table when making my reservation through Open Table, and I am happy to say that Cipriani had a table for us in the back! It was pretty quiet! Our food was excellent, service providers were perfect, and we had a wonderful visit over lunch.

Was looking forward to it because I have been to the original in Venice a few times, also have been to the other Harry's Bar/restaurants around the country. I was immediately disappointed by the Maitre d' who looked at our party as if we didn't belong, we weren't underdress but a little casual because we had been on the town the whole day and didn't have a chance to "dress up. The ambience is nice and very New York, the people watching is good etc. Food is overpriced but you should know that going in. Order the favorites and trust the locals. We had a great time because we met some people at the next table who were from the same area as we were. Just act like you owe the place.
