Harry Cipriani's is a very fashionable place, full of people who want to be seen and secondarily, to see who is looking. It is on the pretentious side and the food was surprisingly mediocre. I was there for the irthday celebration of a friend whose wife spares no expense. Appetizers were good but skimply, main course was tepid. A disappointment.

Delicious Italian food and ambience..still a great scene even at lunchtime. Great service from Sergio and his crew. Food always yummy. Location is wonderful being right on Fifth Ave by GM building and Sherry Netherland. Been going there for years and always enjoyed ourselves...people watching is also a treat here.

We were staying in the (excellent) Sherry Netherland, which is next door to this restaurant, so thought we'd give it a go. We really should have read a menu before trying! The place was very crowded, with white-jacketed waiters dashing around. One positive was they were VERY quick on turn-around: no sooner was a table finished, then the next people... More

We went as a party of 10 comprising six adults and four children for lunch. On entering, I thought' We are not welcome here' but it was too late to just walk out so I decided that we all would just have a quick drink and leave. The other reason we did not leave immediately was that we were all... More

I can't decide which is worse: the bickering waiters, the bellicose patrons, the tiny tables, or the uninspiring overpriced food. The place is loud, crowded with noisy patrons and staff out of a cheap Italian opera. The food is unmemorable. We couldn't believe that Harry Cipriani could be this horrid, so we stupidly came a second time to dine. Fool... More

We went to this restaurant 'thanks' to our hotel concierge. The staff are arrogant (with the odd exception to be fair), the food is mediocre and ridiculously priced for what you get. There are so many better restaurants in New York that it astounds me that anyone would recommend this place, yet due to its location it is and probably... More

We live in NYC for most of our lives and know good food, good service and good value, all of which was totally absent at Harry Cipriani's !!! From the second we arrived for our early reservation we were first ignored, and then made to wait. After a prolong time, they accommodated us. The menu, although diverse the prices were... More

My wife and I chose Harry Cipriani's on 5th Ave. for a special dinner during our visit to NYC. The service was poor. The food was average, but for this price, I expect much better. I don't know how I could have been made to feel more unwelcome, from the maître d' , waiter,and server.I guess this restaurant primarily caters... More

We enjoyed every bite of our meal and the service was great. The restaurant was very crowded but comfortable. The added touch of presenting the dishes on their cookware and spooning them onto our plates was nice. The made to order ice cream for dessert is a must!
