Cibo E Beve Ratings and Reviews
We were passed off by our first waiter (who seemed more interested in larger groups) to an inexperienced backup. Wife ordered pizza that had way too much cheese. I had the halibut and to add capers. Dish was not served with the requested capers and I had to ask 2 more times before they were brought to the table. Probably will not return.
Extremely disappointed. We have been regulars for about a year but hadn’t been there since thanksgiving. Food took forever. Manager came and said he had sent back my wife’s Chicken Piccata because it wasn’t cooked properly and that desert was on him. We ordered a slice of chocolate cake,upon our server’s suggestion, waited another 10 minutes only to have her come back and say they were out. She suggested something else and that took another 15 minutes. We got our check and we were charged for the dessert. I just paid and went home. Didn’t want to have to wait any more than we already had for this horrid experience. I should’ve known better after we were told that our regular server was on vacation. She is wonderful (Naomi) and is the only reason we will probably give this place another chance.
Good food. Tables are a bit close together. One of the cooks knew the people at out table and was standing in the isle for about 65% of our meal. This was very annoying as she was blocking the light to our table and hovering over me moving around and brushing into me as I was talking and trying to eat.
I was disappointed with our entire experience. It was so loud in there, that I left with a headache. At 8pm on Friday night, the restaurant ran out of pizza dough. Our server was friendly but they were under-staffed. Being in the hotel and restaurant industry, I got the impression that the management is not ideal. It doesn't seem like anyone is in charge.
Although I’ve been here before and enjoyed my meal, this last experience was pretty bad. It was New Year’s Eve, but one would expect them to be prepared for that. I would not say the restaurant was overly crowded. Our waiter was truly overwhelmed. I understand that things can get crazy sometimes, but a good server will still communicate and apologize. It probably took about 30 minutes to get our drinks and Over an hour for entrées. They had a limited menu for the evening and had already run out of the veal by 8:30. My potatoes were very undercooked and everything else was just average. The icing on the cake was when we received our bill and two items were on there that we hadn’t ordered. Not sure if I’ll be heading back.
We arrived slightly before they opened as their hours had changed for NYE. The bar tender (maybe floor manager?) promptly let us in and made a delicious dirty martini for me. Once we were at our table the service was fast and efficient and our food was excellent. We will definitely be back.
We were a bit disappointed to learn that the restaurant no longer serves Carbonara. We tried this restaurant based on a great review of that dish. Friends were in from out of country and I feel the restaurant missed the mark of menu variety. Location is easy to get to and overall food was good.
Our reservation was a last minute change due to a scheduling conflict.. The food was good. The restaurant is a little small and were at a tiny table. Since it was small it was very loud. It was very busy so service was slow. Because of the food I would probably try it again.
I booked my company’s holiday team lunch here at noon and when we showed up we found that the place didn’t open for lunch, EVEN THOUGH the hours at the door clearly stated lunch hours and so did Open Table. Thankfully we were able to squeeze in at their siser restaurant next door, but this was a very disappointing experience. They need to make sure it’s clear they don’t open for lunch. I doubt I’ll bother trying this place again.
Sunday night was a disappointment for the first time Not sure if it was because it was after church on Sunday night. Service was quite friendly but slow. A couple of times I thought we might have been forgotten. My salmon was quite good but my wife's "signature" lobster was lacking lobster. Maine lobster tail was 2 less than penny sized pieces with no flavor plus a couple of shreds. I should have taken a picture. If they had run out of lobster, we should have been informed. Since they had little lobster they doubled down on the spices. Tears from too much spice. Then we got the mango sorbet, quite tasty except for fair sized solid ice in center. We'll give them another chance hoping this was an anomaly
This is usually one of our favorite spots, and brought some friends are new to town and who had never eaten here before. It was not especially busy for a Saturday night. Our waitress was atrocious. It took 2 requests and 25 minutes to get bread. It took multiple asks for iced tea refills and a glass of ice. Water glasses were not refilled. Salad was ordered with dressing on the side and it came with dressing on it (replacement salad took over 10 minutes). All of the food came out VERY slowly, which we could understand if it were busy, but it was not. At 10 pm, we were the only customers left, and the wait staff started blasting music, which we took as our invitation to leave. It was also VERY rude. Is 10:00 really too late to stay out for dinner on a Saturday night??? We were enjoying the conversation with our friends but felt pressured to leave. Also, the bartender who helped us at the bar before dinner seemed very inexperienced and untrained. I recall in the past you have had professional bartenders. Overall, disappointing, but the food was delicious.
I really wanted to like this place. Great atmosphere, nice people, great menu..Bar looked really nice too. Food was tasty, but a bit bland. A tad more seasoning would probably make it great. Service was extremely slow too. May have been a bad chef on that night. I will try again.
Used to love Cibo, but it has gone down hill. The last couple times we've eaten here have been underwhelming. The dishes are not as well executed as in the past. For example, I ordered the Gnocchi Bolognese. The texture of the gnocchi had no bite whatsoever. It was indiscernible texturally from little balls of pommes aligot. The drinks were still good. The overall value here, though, has made it nearly impossible to return.
My wife and I went for dinner on a Saturday night and found the restaurant to be somewhat understaffed. The service was slow but our server was extremely competent. I would rate the food a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. My wife said her chicken lacked a defining taste, and my pasta was a bit more bland than it should have been. They do have a very nice bar, and during previous visits I have enjoyed sitting at the bar and eating there. As I looked around the restaurant I realized that most of the tables are rather small and the place when full appears more than a little crowded.
When this restaurant first opened, we would frequent it about once a week due to the unique and amazing preparations of everyday foods. Sadly I feel like the innovative preparations have taken a back seat to ride on their initial success. Decent, but has dropped a few notches since opening.
The entrees were overpriced and truly lacked defining quality to justify the cost. The service was adequate and attentive but appeared to be stressed. The wine list was extensive and suprsingly modestly priced by the glass. Would probably not dine here again.
