Had wanted to visit the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) on previous visits to Hyde Park. Was finally able to make it for dinner in July 2014. Was not disappointed. Student chefs prepare exquisite meals. Service is outstanding. Prices are a bit high. No tipping but 17% is added to your bill and helps fund student scholarships. Restaurant itself (located... More

My wife rec'd a gift card for the Culinary Institute and we drove 1+ hrs. to get there. We were not disappointed. The food and service we excellent. A bit pricey but worth it. We're coming back in the fall to try the Italian restaurant.

I don't tend to like involved restaurant experiences. I like good food, but I'm not a fan of all the other "stuff" that comes along with a "nice" restaurant. American Bounty was perfect. It was delicious, the staff was all nice, but it was not pretentious or fussy. I've eaten at other CIA locations and restaurants and this was my... More

I was skeptical after having had a disappointing meal at Bocuse about a year and a half ago but this fare did not disappoint! Attentive service, perfect seasonings, varied flavors made for a wonderful lunch experience!

The restaurant is one of a number inside the Culinary Institute of America. One side of the restaurant faces the lovely grounds, the other side surrounds a large window where you can look in on the students and instructors as they prepare meals. I must admit we enjoyed watching them as they learned. The servers are also students. They are... More

Everyone we meet at the Culinary Institute was so friendly and accommodating it made the entire experience that much more pleasurable. The had a delicious meal and although our waiter seemed a bit nervous, he was wonderful.

In great anticipation we had made reservations for the American Bounty Restaurant. The staff was friendly, however our server was not at the level of knowledge regarding the fish offers, or the wine. The salad for $9.00 was average, the scallop special also for that price contained two scallops, and two chorizo rice croquette. The entries [I had stripped bass... More

The American Bounty restaurant is one of the restaurant labs on the campus of the Culinary Institute of America. The restaurant is beautifully appointed as are they all. Students work the kitchen and dining room under the guidance of faculty. The food was generally good and is locally sourced when and where possible. They even do some gardening on the... More

We travelled from NYC specifically to eat here and I was so disappointed. Even making allowances for the service being students- aren't many waiters students?- they were slow and seemed confused. No one bothered to explain the iPad wine list (I only knew it was there from the tour we took beforehand) and they seemed baffled when I asked what... More

We have dined here on several previous occasions and were always very pleased with the food and service. Unfortunately our experience this time was disappointing. The food (sea bass and roast chicken) was tasteless. The service was slow and inattentive. Since we needed to ask at least two different servers for our iced teas, we were double charge. Luckily I...
