Very disappointed in this most recent visit (of several) to the CIA. This attempt at a celebration of Sicilian dishes did not come off well. Only the first course was truly enjoyable, and most were accompanied by unappreciated wines. My wife and our tablemates left several plates unfinished. Will return, but order off of the main menu only, because we have so enjoyed previous visits. No more "special events."

We enjoy our meals at the Caterina. Whether for a date or a special occasion or event. The students are very accommodating and knowledgeable. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Sicilian food sampling with wine pairing was very good and, of course, the service was attentive as always. The Sicilian wines we sampled were good, but the cassata for dessert was outstanding.

As ever, the CIA restaurants shine in the use of excellent ingredients and beautifully plated food; student servers work hard, and successfully to provide a smooth experience. Also as always, food preparation is good, but spotty, e.g. lovely tiny mussels garnishing a seafood couscous, overcooked to the point of dryness.
While the food was good overall, it wasn't terribly authentic. Seasoning was timid in the sauces and couscous; upscale ingredients skewed some dishes away from Sicilian, such a porcini in the arancini. The cassata, however, was a spot on updating of the classic Sicilian cake, and was the outstanding item on the menu; we ate it all!
The wines were excellent, well-chosen and the most Sicilian part of the evening.

This was an extraordinary meal. We have been to CIA and American Bounty many times and loved most of them but this is up there as one of the best menus, prepared to perfection and even the wine pairing was great.
Had a great evening.

The CIA always presents interesting foods in interesting ways. However, Wednesday 's lunch left mich to be desired. All of my the food was cold. The squab was served on cold plates. My squab was seated on the outside, but raw on the inside. The meat was cold. My paella was overlooked. The rice kernels having split open. My husband's paella was not cooked enough. Each grain crunched under tooth. We asked for our wine tab. We waited sling that the restaurant became empty; the people at our table having left 15 minutes prior to our getting up. A waiter caught us outside the door in the hallway. This is the students last rotation. It appeared to be the first. Shame on their instructors.

Bocuse at the Culinary Institute never disappoints. This special Basque themed lunch was outstanding in terms of beautifully composed offerings full of flavor and perfectly executed. A great enhancement to the meal was being randomly seated with two other couples who happened to be foodies so conversation never lagged. It was very noisy in the restaurant, however, and any improvement in noise dampening decor would be welcome. The quality of cuisine equals or surpasses the finest restaurants anywhere.

We have been to the CIA many times, this was a disappointing one. It was a dine-around to a meal in all their restaurants. In the Caterina we had asparagus with a glass of mediocre white wine. In the Bocuse, we had fish that was dry and not cooked to a nice flakey finish. In the Bounty, the beef tenderloin was very good , but the sides weren't to be eaten. I'm not sure what they were.
The service was good as usual but the servers couldn't answer questions about the food they were serving or any of the beverages.
All in all it was a disappointing evening at the CIA , not what we would've expected.
