    We had the tasting menu at the chefs table in back and the 8 courses were fantastic - extremely creative. Service was impeccable. It's not going to be inexpensive but this is certainly in the class of some of the best restaurants we've eaten at all over the world. We also had brunch the next day at their other restaurant, Ciro Forty Acres and it was also excellent with great diversity and creativity in the menu. Highly recommend both.

    Food was good but felt like we were imposing on the quite blazé staff. Over priced. Wine pairing pours were less than 3 oz and portions were very small, even for fine dining. First course was fresh tomatoes, basil and cheese…traditional dish…nothing spectacular…lacked innovation. Pork belly was delicious but clearly pre-cooked, dry. So much potential but felt lazy. Was far better last winter… maybe summer isn’t their season.

    We were at the local Craft Show and looked up the local restaurants. Ciro was highly recommended so we made a reservation. The restaurant was tiny had had no ambiance at all but that was okay. Our waiter was friendly but so busy we couldn’t talk to him when he asked if everything was okay. He was gone so quickly! It was obvious that he knew the other diners and concentrated on them. The appetizer was interesting and quite good. Our main course was nicely displayed but it looked better that it was. My sister and I had scallops. They were tender and looked like they were cooked but the only searing was on the very edges. The center was very wet and bitter. We felt grit when chewing and the scallops and I ate only two scallops they were so bitter! I have never had bitter scallops like that before. I couldn’t eat them. They smelled a bit like ammonia. My husband had pork and ate it. He gave me a bite and it was very tough. I didn’t care for the sauce or texture. My husband agreed but he was very hungry and ate everything. Three times we tried to catch our waiter’s attention but he just flashed on by. The server seemed to be the only server besides the man who made drinks. I understand why he rushing and gave him a good tip. However, we are sorry to say that we will never dine there again. We were very disappointed. This is the first time we have given a poor review. Maybe it was just an off day….

    We had the marinated feta appetizer: it was delicious. I had the seared scallops were cooked to perfection. My wife had the veal parmigiana, the veal was tough and the breading lacked flavor. We shared the carrot cake for dessert, another hit. I would highly recommend Ciro for your next meal.

    Ciro’s is a unique dining experience. They have a few menu items to select from but the real value comes from the Chef Tasting menu. You select a 4,5,6 or 7 course meal of items selected by the Chef. A little unnerving but exciting at the same time. There was nothing exotic but something I had never had, lamb, which was awesome. You have to try this place. It is much different than any other restaurant around. And the wait staff and owner are very friendly and genuine people. Great place all over.

    Ciro came recommended by a friend whose tastebuds we trust. We were not disappointed. Small and relaxed atmosphere. We started with the Beets appetizer and also the artichokes. Both were delicious. Dan had the Scallops which were large and perfectly seared. I had the Sea bass special which was a tiny bit too salty but quite delicious as well. Great little spot. Prices are reasonable. We will definitely be back.

    We were very excited to try this restaurant. We loved Moro! The tasting menu was wonderful! Every dish was satisfying. We really loved the crab cake, it was the highlight of the meal. The atmosphere really takes away food the experience. The place needs some TLC! It is very small and the tables are small and close together. The bathroom needs attention. After using the restroom I would have been worried about the cleanliness of the kitchen but luckily the kitchen is out in the open and I could see that it was immaculate! Downside to that was at times the restaurant was smoky. They need a better exhaust fan. Our serving duo handled the entire restaurant very well. Pleasant and attentive. We had a 5 course tasting and a bottle of wine. For the price, we just felt like the overall experience came up short.

    Ciro did not disappoint for Valentine’s Day. The meal got better with each course. We are repeat customers for a reason. We started off with a delicious mushroom consume. I could have had an entire bowl. Next came seared scallops with asparagus, so good. Then a Bronzino with oranges and almonds. Such a unique combination. The pumpkin ravioli had sage and cherries (could have had an entire plate just of them). Next was my favorite, the confit duck with lentils. Crispy and still succulent. The pork 2 ways was my husband’s favorite - crispy braised bacon and a kobe pork chop. The bacon had a great spiced bourbon glaze and the chop had a delicious polenta alongside. As if there wasn’t enough incredible courses, round out with wagyu beef topped with foie gras. Dessert was arguably one of the best carrot cakes I have ever had and a decadent chocolate tart. Wine was expertly paired with each course.
