One of my favorite Birthday dinners

My husband took me here for my 30th birthday. Not only did I enjoy my meal, but the service was outstanding and we even got a tour of the kitchen where the students were cooking ( and all we had to do was ask and they said they didn't mind giving us a tour at all). As for the meal,... read more

I wanted to rate this restaurant (part of the restaurants at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park) as Excellent, and would have except for one minor slip-up during our visit. First, the facilities and restaurant are impeccable. The building is beautiful and maintenance is superb. Second, the staff was excellent. We had nothing but praise for everyone there... More

Our family of seven had a wonderful dinner. Our waiter, Danny, was spot on with his reccommendations for both appetizers and entrees. The mussels were plump perfection. The foie gras was creamy and full of flavor. One of us got the butternut squash soup and it was special. For the entrees we chose the pork which we ate down to... More

Been coming to the CIA restaurants for about 20 years now, in the past year I've been 3 other times. We were disappointed in two of the establishments and wasn't sure if we should give it another try. I'm glad we did and visited the American Bounty. The service, staff and food was exactly why we love coming to the... More

Pros- cost, cocktails and portion size Best cocktails I've had in a while also food is bountiful, good size portionsI was pleasantly surprised when our bill came up to $153 ( which included a 17% gratuity) because we had four cocktails, two appetizers, two entree and two desserts. That's a steal (especially by NYC standards). Con's - Seating, Messed up... More

Culinary Institute of America has several restaurants. We choose American Bounty because of the variety of the menu. The whole experience took about 2 hours which was great to space out the courses. The food tasted great and looked marvelous. We even asked some questions on how things were prepared. Everyone was very knowledgeable and attentive. The mussels in the... More

Our son graduated from the Culinary Institute of America this past weekend so I am somewhat bias in my review. That being said our dinner was fabulous. I had the duck which just melted in my mouth. If we ever have the opportunity again I will go back without hesitation. Go enjoy and see the wonderful training these young men... More

Got an email regarding a winter special at the CIA's Hyde Park main restaurants--a choice of appetizer or salad or soup, entree, and dessert for $25 for lunch with 2 glasses of house special wine for $14. Made reservations for 3 through Open Table and was surprised at how much availability was offered. As we live about 1 hour and... More

3 of us ate all courses. Soup was the best course. Scallop appy was very good. But my chicken was nothing special, neither was its side dishes. My daughter's swordfish was bland. Our wine was overpriced for the brand. Our waiter was good but it was his first night so he wasn't yet comfortable. I'll try another restaurant at the... More

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...
