Beautiful spot and hard-working aspiring chefs, but has some problems

My husband and I had lunch today at American Bounty, which was our third visit to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. The campus is breathtaking in its beauty and it is always a joy to visit this spot. While overall our meal (sea bass and beef were the entrees we chose) was fine - and... read more

So excited but disappointed. We had to wait too long for water or for the waiter to acknowledge us. The entrees of duck breast and chicken breast were lacking in flavor. But the foie gras was exceptional - so tender and rich with a variety of flavors. We were expecting something exceptional and sadly were very underwhelmed.

Try to sit close to the big kitchen window as you can watch the chefs at work. It's an amazing experience and the food is out if this world. The servers are very happy to answer any question you have about the food and about their experience at the school. Prices are so inexperience!

This is one of the several restaurants at the Culinary Institute of America. Jonathan Zearfoss is the current head chef, assisted by students at the Institute. "Almost every profession has an outstanding training ground. The military has West Point, music has Juilliard, and the culinary arts has The Institute." —Craig Claiborne.

My son graduated from the Bachelors program at Culinary Institute so we have had many meals at the Bounty. It is always delicious and beautifully plated. I understand the restaurant will be undergoing renovations this year, 2015 and will be moved to another location..not sure where on campus. It is such a pleasure to watch these passionate culinary students create... More

First it is important to note that all servers and kitchen crew are students and that this is a class where they are learning and receiving a grade. Students spend three weeks in the front or back of the house and then switch. Depending on when you come for dinner you might be at the beginning, middle or end of... More

I have wanted to eat at the Culinary Institute for years and finally had my chance this past Wednesday night. I can't say enough good things about the service and the food but basically everything was top notch. Fresh, hot baked bread was delivered to the table. It was slightly sweet with some sea salt on top. We were offered... More

We were seated promptly and shown a very extensive menu. The food pairings were intriguing but I decided on the Beet and honey salad followed by pork tenderloin. There were four of us and all the dihes were innovative and brilliantly presented.

We made online reservations for a Thursday night in May while attending college orientation for our son in the area. We had high expectations based on the reputation of the CIA but it was not great. The student server brought us drinks, then it was 50 minutes before she brought the salad course. Our server did not bring a bread... More

We had the oysters, stinging nettle soup, market fish (sea bass), long island duck breast, and the Rhubarb and Green Tea cake. All well prepared and beautifully presented. We will be back.
