    A two course option or a no sugar added dessert would be a good addition for those unable to have dessert.

    The experience with the waitstaff was OUTSTANDING. They were patient and understanding whenever we had a question about the ingredients. We felt very welcomed and well attended. And the food? OUT OF THIS WORLD! (And we are discerning eaters.)

    Wonderful service and creative and delicious food. We enjoyed talking with our waiter, one of the students who was going to graduate a few days later. So professional and informed and seemed dedicated to his profession. Everyone at CIA was friendly and attentive to your needs. We enjoyed the experience very much.

    Our Prix Fixe lunch at Bocuse was a perfect outing. The campus is beautiful and the esplanade with fountains was as picturesque as it was refreshing on this hot day. Our meal was flawless, as was the service. We thoroughly enjoyed our impressive popover-topped Black Truffle soup and White Gazpacho appetizers, followed by Duck breast and Lobster entrees. The exquisite Dartois and gateau desserts were the perfect ending to our delicious meal. Highly recommend!

    What an incredible way to end our vacation. We enjoyed dinner at all three restaurants this week, but Bocuse was the icing on the cake. Remarkable service, food was absolutely delicious, and would return a few times a month if I wasn’t 500 miles away… would recommend to everyone, they make most big dollar restaurants look really bad. Very happy to be an alumni!!

    Excellent service, food preparation and presentation. The only negative was our seating location in a corner which was fairly noisy and directly under a vent. We made our reservation 60 days in advance, arrived on time and the restaurant was not full upon arrival. We asked to be seated elsewhere but were told there was no alternative.

    It's good. Not great but solid for what it is. We went for lunch before a campus open house and tour. It was interesting to discover that the restaurant is actually a working classroom. Your waitstaff and kitchen staff are both enrolled in a class that requires them to work the restaurant.

    We went there for lunch. The food and the presentation of it was outstanding. Flavorful, dynamic, fresh. The servers went out of the way to explain the dishes before we selected them and once they brought the plates to the table. I would come back to it and also try one of the other restaurants in the Culinary Institute, even though we are 70 miles away!

    The flavors and preparation were exceptionally good. The duck and halibut were perfectly prepared. Given that this is a "French" restaurant, some consideration might be given to the possibility of a cheese plate in place of the traditional dessert.

    The service was great, the staff were a little hard to hear, but very friendly. They had great gluten free bread at the beginning of the meal. The food was good, but I would appreciate if they had more options for the first course and dessert since it’s not optional.

    Wonderful service and prix fixed meal at Bocuse. Loved the melon and Serrano ham appetizer and the chocolate mousse cake. I wish there had been more entree choices. So much more can be done with chicken rather than just Cornish game hens. And needed more veggies and potatoes. Still a lovely meal.
