I had read the less than favorable reviews on TA and thought 'those people must be really picky'. Actually those people were actually really correct! This was an experience I had long looked forward to, but sadly , it was not a good one. Firstly, it's painfully obvious that the servers don't work for tips bc the service was terrible.... More

From start to finish the service and meal was fantastic. As we've come to expect from the CIA restaurants, the attention to detail by servers and chef's alike is was stellar. The food came at just the right pace. We have found that each restaurant "encourages" you to step out of your "norm" and try new (and very deleiciou) things.... More

Expect excellent farm-to-table food and polite, accommodating but imperfect service. We were a party of 4 unable to get reservations online. I mistakenly thought the Apple Pie Cafe was open on weekends so we were already at the restaurants on campus. It was shortly before 1130AM, American Bounty's open time, and I thought I would ask if they could accommodate... More

The Culinary Institute of America is worth visiting. The campus is impressive and seeing the chefs-in-training in the teaching kitchens was enjoyable. We had great expectations for our meal at American Bounty. The menu and wine list were very inviting. The servers were friendly but inexperienced, surprising considering that they were a few weeks from graduation. Our appetizers - mussels... More

Great ambience and good, but not great, food. All food prepared and served by students at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). This is one of the two (and the better one in my opinion) restaurants at the CIA. The ambiance is white table cloth, wood and wrought iron, and low, pleasing music at a level that is good for...

We had dinner here during our stay in Hyde Park. The entire experience reminded us of a fine dining restaurant in New York City, The ambiance was comfortable and the wide-ranging menu was fascinating. The service was beyond excellent and the staff was very attentive. The food was as delicious as anything you could find anywhere. You really had to... More

While we would rate the American Bounty slightly lower than the school's French restaurant, as a stand alone, we would return in a minute. The food was excellent with creative uses of local products. The interaction with the CIA students added to the enjoyment without interfering with the serving efficiency. The appetizers were creative and delicious. The entrees well prepared... More

We checked the menu for all the restaurants at the Culinary Institute before deciding on the American Bounty. Upon arrival, we were quickly shown to our table. Our server was pleasant, though he had to check with the kitchen staff to be sure the excellent corn soup was not animal-broth based. This is in no way an intimidating restaurant. Utensils... More

Four of us dined on a Saturday night at the American Bounty. First let me say that the surroundings were beautiful and got us excited for the meal to follow. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. I had the scallop appetizer which turned out to be 2 very small scallops and 2 small rice croquettes. Two of our party had the... More

We reserved for dinner and we're quickly shown to our table. Our server was inexperienced which was disappointing. He could not tell us about the Red Fish on the menu for instance which surprised us. We did enjoy our meals (Red Fish for my husband; duck breast for me) and when an older gentleman came to ask how our meals... More
