Great flavors and presentation. Excellent culinary experience

No other way to say it - a great evening. As we had already had happy hour elsewhere, we avoided the bottle of wine and instead ordered a glass of a nice North Fork Merlot and I had the CIA-produced stout - very good. Our server recommended certain dishes - and I think we ordered everything she... read more

I planned a whole day in and around Hyde Park for my husband's recent birthday. Decided to include a stop for lunch at American Bounty, one of the restaurants run and staffed by the CIA, Culinary Institute of America, located right on their impressive campus. I made the reservation on Open Table. The traditional decor was a bit dated for... More

Along with the other restaurants at the CIA, American Bounty is one of the best restaurants in town. Excellently prepared food along with perfect service make this a dining pleasure. Don't miss the creative presentations of every dish as this is part if the fun. As this is part of the school, everything is handled by the students with teachers... More

This restaurant is a working classroom for students at the CIA, and they work all aspects of both the front and back of the house. The food was exquisite and the service was earnest, even if not perfect. It was fun talking with the student servers and even the instructors who are always present. All of our dishes were well...

This was the second restaurant at CIA we visited and we were so glad we did. The food is so good you want more! This is what good food is. Everything we had we enjoyed, and the desserts were incredible. The students in this school are some of the finest anywhere and it shows in the dishes they prepare and... More

My wife and I enjoyed lunch at AB yesterday 11/11/15. The restaurant week special is $20.95 for a price fix menu that includes either soup, salad, or appetizer...an entree and a desert. The food is fabulous. I had a salmon appetizer an could have stopped there, but of course I didn't. I had shot ribs for the entree (excellent). My... More

We celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary with dinner at American Bounty. I had been there before with girlfriends, but wanted to take my husband. Each course was enchanting - flavors combined in ways we have never experienced before. The wait staff was attentive and precise. Even though, the restaurant is in a temporary location, the evening was delightful. We cannot... More

My husband and I dine at The Culinary Institute, one to two times a year. It reminds us what great food is supposed to taste lake and what restaurant hospitality should be. Our recent visit did not disappoint. The service was attentive, friendly and professional and the food was inventive, interesting, fresh and delicious. I especially enjoyed the oysters; they...

We were told by many friends when we make plans to visit the Hudson Valley that we had to include a visit to the Culinary Institute of America. I totally concur now that we have experienced a meal there. The food was incredible, the service impeccable, and the ambiance wonderful.

When I pre-booked our table, it was rather pot-luck which of the CIA restaurants I booked in, but boy! did we hit the jackpot. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of our meal, and the service was just right. Our friend who ate with us commented that he had eaten at all the Michelin starred restaurants in France,...
