I was hesitant taking my 13 and 18 year old sons to this restaurant, but was hoping for the best. And rightfully so! As I may have mentioned in my previous reviews, my husband is a great cook, which makes it hard for us to find truly good restaurants. I must say that he practically licked his plates. On the...

I was looking forward to the experience of eating at a Culinary Institute restaurant. Prices were comparable with well run and upscale restaurants. The service was great, perhaps too formal, and our student waiter was affable and attentive. The appetizer was good. The wine selection was great and well priced. However, the duck was dry and not flavorful, and the... More

We were really looking forward to this meal because the menu and surroundings looked so promising. Sadly we were really disappointed in the food and to some extent the service. I know its a training kitchen but i think better supervision is needed because the experience was not particularly cheap (although neither was it very expensive). The food was average,... More

The butternut squash soup is not to be missed. My husband and I both also ordered salads that were good and my husband also ordered a cheese plate. The problem was after the soups were served within a minute both of our salads and the cheese plate arrived. We both ordered iced teas but they did not arrive until he... More

Had a wonderful meal with superior service. We made reservations for the first day of a new term, which, we were advised, might make for a less than perfect meal presentation or service. However, we were delighted with the atmosphere, food presentation, and service. We loved the wine list, which was presented on an IPad! Our server, although it was... More

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...
