Cibo Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
This is first time I have been back to restaurant since the name was changed to Cibo, overall I was unimpressed. Everything was lackluster, maybe it was due to most of their staff was catering to a wedding party, however no waiters or waitresses sung the entire time and our food seemed as if no effort was put forth. I know this is suppose to the same as the 'Walnut Street Supper Room' but just with a name change however it was not like anything I remember.
Located in walking distance to Broad Street concert hall. The booths are comfortable , the music relaxing, and the servings were large. Not a big menu. I liked the mixed green salad and dressing. The salmon was well cooked but I did not like the veggies. It was served on a bed of shredded cabbage with steamed carrots on the side. I think a polenta, pasta, potato or rice would have worked much better. Coffee was good.
My friend and I went for the Drag Brunch. Cibo has a separate prix fine brunch menu for an additional $25. It includes 1 entrée and 2 mimosas or 1 other drink. I had the Diva omelette(mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and provolone) and my friend had steak & eggs. Each included roasted potatoes.
The show was fabulous. The omelette was delicious. Cooked perfectly. I did not enjoy the potatoes. They had a very unusual taste. It tasted like they were seasoned with anise. Which did not work for me or my friend. He loved his steak.
Made reservations via Open Table, reservations were confirmed via email. We arrived at restaurant and all the lights were off and restaurant was closed. No hours posted and no idea how reservation was confirmed or no notification given indicating reservations could not be made/confirmed because it was closed.
Our waiter was wonderful and the experience was nice. The food was very mediocre for my entire party. I ordered a steak tail filet with a side of risotto and the risotto was very crunchy while the steak lacked flavor unless I used the somewhat tasty sauce. My sister had the mussels with a side of polenta and found it very sub-par taste wise. My cousin had the shrimp with a side of spinach and found it also sub-par too taste wise. They also ran out of some of the dessert options as well as a few of the sides due to us going the last week of Restaurant Week.
Maybe it was a bad night, but the service was slowwww, the food was not good - took a very long time to come out and was cold. The waiter mumbled something about problems in the kitchen . The manager was nice and gave us free dessert, but that wasn't good either . The entertainment was nice but I'd never go back.
Wanted to go to dinner with two of my daughters and cube was the only restaurant with availability on restaurant week. We had a 915 reservation. We were seated right away but all downhill from there. Waited 10minutes for beverages 40 minutes for appetizers and dinner wasn't very tasty. Best part of the dining experience was dessert. Was given 50% off bill and still paid over $100.. With tip included. My waiter was not worth $18.00 tip. Will never return. Sour seat was even moved during service for some bs excuse
Food and service were outstanding. Our server, Rob, added a lot to make our meal such a wonderful experience. Rob was so warm and friendly, and gave us great recommendations. There is a really good vibe at the restaurant, including the music there. We looking forward to going back many times.
My husband and I and another couple went for the Bowie week Sunday brunch. It was David Bowie's and my birthday. We'd never been to Cibo before, so our experience on this special event day may be different than on a typical Sunday, but we loved it.
We got what may be the best table in the house - the semi-booth on the back wall directly facing the DJ. If you go to watch performers on the tiny stage there would be a pillar blocking your view, but it's great people-watching.
The space is very cool - beautiful and artsy/funky.
They had a pre-fixe menu with several very nice options - we all liked our choices very much.
Our server was really sweet and took great care of us, though he was unsure about some menu options and was stretched thin when it got busy.
First we were told there were no desserts with the brunch, a big disappointment on any day but especially on my birthday. But then they came through, and fabulously. Two servers brought out cheesecake with whipped cream and berries and sang 'happy birthday', beautifully! I was told that the servers sing at dinner - they were awesome, such a treat.
Later, perhaps others wanted their sweets too, and the server brought two of the best cannolis we'd ever had.
The owner checked in a couple of times to see if everything was ok, the music was great, it was a good, mixed crowd (again likely not the usual 'drag queen brunch' crowd), it was just all good!
We sat for 4 hours, had a blast, and we will definitely go back.
