Never again!! EVER!!! Their version of bruschetta is not only strange, but overly salty due to way too many kalamata olives. $41+ is strong for lunch, but worth it if the service and/or food are exceptional. I won't fault the food, other than my comment above. It's above average but still overpriced in my opinion. But the service is HORRIBLE!!!... More

If you want to have burgers on Wed. night at Cyd's you need to plan on the whole ENTIRE evening. You will wait 1- 11/2 hours to get seated and another hour to get through the meal. The burgers are good and it's a nice atmosphere but there are some REAL issues with organization and efficiency with this place! Things... More

Cyd's is a great local spot, lovely breakfast, lunch and dinner options...also special evenings like Burgers on the Boardwalk. It can be very expensive, the bakery almost seems absurdly overpriced but the food is good quality and almost always well-prepared and consistent. Food is fresh and lovely, atmosphere is sweet and the outdoor seating is great in nice weather. I... More

Just because a place is in a fancy neighborhood and has a pricy menu does not mean the food is remarkable. Seriously over priced. Ridiculous. How much should one pay for beans and cucumbers in a plastic cup? Meatloaf? The food is not bad, let me be clear on that. It just isn't that good. I live very close and... More

I am in high school and me and my friends love to come here it is a great nice place where the staff is always helpful. Everybody should get the Mediterranean salad.

So a friend of mine recommended this restaurant. I was told it is an upscale nice place to eat lunch and get a variety of food. We chose this restaurant to eat lunch and try something new. I had no idea I would be eating food tainted with somebody hair! It makes you question exactly what is in it that... More

Ok...Peoria is NOT a foodie town or the 1st place one thinks of when looking for something refreshing and different. But...CYD's really hit the spot. Went with family and ordered grilled vegetable sandwich with homemade chips. The server was pleasant. Presentation was great and sandwich was very fresh and yummy. The food is creative. The dessert selection ( though did... More

I have never had anything but truly delicious food at Cyd's! This time it was the Gourmet Hamburger (which as a very picky Bleu Cheese Burger connoisseur) I can easily say it was one of, if not, the best, I have ever had! Grab a bunch of napkins if you order this, because it is juicy (not fatty) and flavorful.... More

Cyd's is a great stop for lunch but arrive early to make sure you get a table! Delicious sandwiches and soups and the deli is very convenient if you can't be bothered to cook dinner one evening! I ordered my daughters birthday cake from here too - it was the "best chocolate cake she had ever tasted" in her whole... More
