    CIMAS the restaurant isn’t truly open- you can sit in the restaurant space, but all they offer is a very limited lounge menu from their downstairs bar. Super disappointing- they need to update their website to not mislead people with the full menu online and the ability to make reservations

    The atmosphere was great with a beautiful view. (We were blinded by the sun until sunset.) The menu was extremely limited and did not match anything posted online. We wouldn’t have gone had we known there was less than 10 items to choose from. Our food tasted good, but wasn’t worth the price. The employees were nice, but our server wasn’t very knowledgeable with the menu items.

    Not a lot of menu choices. Definitely need to add more to their menu. They were serving brunch only until 2 in the afternoon. We were there at 12 so wanted a lunch menu. Pretty pricey as well. $14 for a small Bloody Mary. Staff was friendly and prompt. Great location and beautiful interior facing the river though so just need to improve the menu. Will give it another try.

    Hyatt Restaurant!?!? Bare table . No tablecloth or placemat. Shrimp salad full of white lettuce core and croutons. Had to ask repeatedly for water refills. Slow feed delivery. Cool building, but unlikely to return.

    My mom and I came for a lil Easter brunch. Server (Barry) was super super nice. Got a mimosa a flight and each of us got the 2 egg breakfast (different styles.) Overall great. Would suggest having gluten free bread on the menu perhaps as I have a gluten allergy.

    Tucker was the nicest waiter - he made great recommendations and was so kind all night. The menu was extremely limited but everyone enjoyed their food. It was surprisingly empty for a Saturday night and food service was relatively slow considering how empty it was. Beautiful views and ambiance.

    CIMAS is a beautiful restaurant with gorgeous views of the MS River; however the management is squandering its potential. We made a reservation and arrived on time to find the restaurant (at 6:30 on a busy downtown Memphis Saturday) nearly empty. We were informed that only 1 line cook had shown up for work and the manager was having to help cook; therefore the regular menu was not available...only the bar menu. We were sympathetic to their plight and the bar food was ok, but not what we expected out of a Hyatt brand.

    I had made reservations for a special night out with my daughters. Upon arrival we are informed they are only serving off the bar menu. We were very disappointed and did not have time to go anywhere else because we had Orpheum tickets and chose Cimas for the close proximity and we had previewed the dinner menu online. It was not a good first experience at all. Knowing someone had dinner reservations through OpenTable I could have been notified and advised.

    First off, Cimas has one of the BEST river views in the city, so if you're there for a view and aren't hungry, thirsty or have to be somewhere in less than three hours you may want to steer clear of this place. We were the first table seated - took 10 min to get water/acknowledged by a server, almost 30 to get drinks (bar was about 20 yards from our table) and almost another hour after that to get our food (salad, grits, quesadilla, cheese dip (congealed from sitting somewhere) Food arrived cold. Four other tables were seated while we were there (2 servers, hostess and 2 bartenders/ 5 tables total in the whole restaurant) All of the other tables complained about how long it took and food quality/temperature as well When we checked the bill - we were overcharged by about $150. Our server who finally made it back around, fixed it but there were no apologies, excuses - just poor service and poor food quality. Don’t valet. No validation so you’ll be charged 15-20 depending on who you get at the front desk. Really bummed and hoped for a much better experience given the beauty of the place.

    We ordered from the special Valentine menu and it was delicious. The caesar salad was huge and had grilled shrimp on it. The dinners we ordered (short ribs and grilled fish) were delicious and generous portions. Dessert left a bit to be desired - chocolate covered strawberries which is a great Valentine's Day dessert, but it was literally just two strawberries sitting on a plate... It was just strange, like a spur-of-the-moment-throw-something-on-a-plate after an otherwise perfect meal. But all in all it was wonderful and we'll definitely be back. The space is perfect and every table has a view of the river. The staff were all so nice and we felt so welcome. Our server, Sarah, in particular was amazing - very knowledgeable about the menu and also super sweet when we asked her to take our picture. She took her time to take us to the perfect spot and set up the picture so we'd have a nice picture in front of the bridge.

    First, the food was mediocre and the menu was small, also a little overpriced. The bloody mary was more expensive than the food and super basic, just a lime wedge and way too much horseradish. Not a quality cocktail by any means. Second the waitress was really annoying. And brought our check before the food arrived! Wanted us to close out so she could go, she said we were her last table. I suppose I was to get my own water refill. Not the kind of service I expect for the price of the experience. Third, do not valet. Valet attendant can’t close you out. Front desk has too so you will have to wait in line with check ins to pay which took us about 15-20 mins, then they didn’t know how to log into the valet portal. Absolute mess. I couldn’t recommend CIMAS, even if staying at the hotel as there are too many quality local restaurants within walking distance.

    We ate here prior to our show at the Orpheum. Tucker was our server and was excellent, knowledgeable, and friendly. The view of the river and the bridge was just spectacular! The food and drinks were superb. Our orders took a while, but that was expected at this point with short staffing due to COVID and the ice storm two days ago. Our 5:45 reservation was perfect for a leisurely dinner before our 8pm show, and the restaurant was just steps from the Orpheum. We will be back soon!

    Celebrated my husband's BD by going to Cima's for brunch. Great view of the Mississipi River. Food was very good. I recommend the French Toast. Cornflake crumbs gave it a slightly crunchy texture and citrus fruit gave it a tropical flavor. Agenerous portion, I could not eat it all. Ask for Server Marcus - very helpful, professional & friendly.

    The wait time for our waiter to come take drink orders was a little long, but honestly whose isn’t right now? It seemed like I only saw 1 server during my meal and he was very polite and attentive. When the kitchen bar was out of grapefruit juice, he asked the hotel lounge bartender if she could make my grapefruit mimosa for me. The food was absolutely amazing. I had the French toast(both mouth watering and filling) and my husband had the breakfast tacos which were amazing as well. The view of the river was really pretty, and the interior design was stunning. Definitely recommend!
