Pleasant decor, very comfortable, very good staff, wine list ok but food is outstanding. Everyone had fish and all dishes were reported to be excellent. Portions were generous. Reservations are an absolute must as this place is busy on and off season and has a large number of repeat customers. Worth a visit.

My experience was not reflective of everything we have heard about this restaurant, and we will certainly try again. the service is superb, the decor is surprisingly lovely for its location, and the menu is unique. no errors in service, but one some dishes overly done. will definitely try again.

Dining with a group of 8 friends who eat out weekly. This was a restaurant where great food and great service combined for a great night out. Creative menu and service that was prompt but not rushed. Mojito Pork Chop was delicious.

Cibao Grille is a happening place. Wednesday night is a busy night at cibao and despite a 20 minute delay beyond our 7:45 reservation, it was a pleasant experience. Drinks at the bar were generous and Trisha our waitress was pleasant and helpful. Caesar salads were very good, the bread disappointing. Coconut grouper was cooked to perfection, delicious and I...

We discovered this cosy restaurant lurking among the trees in a mall off the Tamiami Trail in Naples. And what a discovery! It was really busy but we were able to get two seats at the bar where a friendly server took care of us while filling drink orders, an expert multi-tasker for sure. We were delighted to find that...

A friend of ours made a reservation for the four of us for dinner last night. The reservation was made two weeks ago. Last Saturday, I called and asked for a table along the west wall because of my wife's hearing problem.. I know Pedro, the owner, because I have eaten there a number of times for lunch and dinner...

Chef/owner Yohonny ("Pedro") Nolasco has a very nice menu with many items having a Caribbean/Dominican Republic touch. The black bean soup is absolutely the best you will find and seafood items are tastefully prepared. The service is excellent as is the ambiance. I can find no fault with any aspect of Cibao which is perhaps the main reason I have... More

We just celebrated a friend's birthday with several other couples and had the most amazing experience at Cibao. The scallop appetizer, filet and lobster tail were all perfectly done. The atmosphere is very warm and friendly and it is clear that this is a local favorite. We were there off-season on a weeknight and they were still pretty busy with... More

Our friends took us to this fabulous restaurant while we were on vacation. For folks who know the area you should know that the chef was the chef at St. George and the Dragon Restaurant before it closed. Cibao is fabulous! The food was delicious and artfully prepared and people know it...the place was packed and it was a week... More
