Eight girlfriends on a road trip hit American Bounty, one of the training restaurants at the Culinary Institute of America. What a beautiful place! The campus is lovely and so is the building that houses the restaurants. We had a lovely meal - mussels, beef, fish, meatballs, chicken, soups, salads, desserts and bread! A couple of the dishes were over-salted,... More

Our visit to American Bounty had been planned for months with menu chosen for our group in advance. Expectations were high and the students at the Culinary Institute of America didn't disappoint! The dining room is impeccably decorated; the tables are set beautifully; and multiple waiters attend to every detail. We were first brought a small iron pan of tiny... More

I've wanted to visit the CIA for many years and when my wife suggested it several months ago, it seemed like the perfect time to try it. It's only one and a half hours North, but we stayed overnight anyway. There are 3 restaurants available... The Bocuse (French), American Bounty and the Apple Pie Bakery Cafe (which was closed when...

What a treat. Being from the UK we were not quite sure what to expect from the Culinary Institute of America, or the American Bounty Restaurant. After being astonished at the huge size and scope of the Institute our meal surpassed our expectations. Staffed by students, who as we understand it cook the food as well as supplying the waiting...

Had wanted to visit the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) on previous visits to Hyde Park. Was finally able to make it for dinner in July 2014. Was not disappointed. Student chefs prepare exquisite meals. Service is outstanding. Prices are a bit high. No tipping but 17% is added to your bill and helps fund student scholarships. Restaurant itself (located... More

My wife rec'd a gift card for the Culinary Institute and we drove 1+ hrs. to get there. We were not disappointed. The food and service we excellent. A bit pricey but worth it. We're coming back in the fall to try the Italian restaurant.

I don't tend to like involved restaurant experiences. I like good food, but I'm not a fan of all the other "stuff" that comes along with a "nice" restaurant. American Bounty was perfect. It was delicious, the staff was all nice, but it was not pretentious or fussy. I've eaten at other CIA locations and restaurants and this was my... More

I was skeptical after having had a disappointing meal at Bocuse about a year and a half ago but this fare did not disappoint! Attentive service, perfect seasonings, varied flavors made for a wonderful lunch experience!

The restaurant is one of a number inside the Culinary Institute of America. One side of the restaurant faces the lovely grounds, the other side surrounds a large window where you can look in on the students and instructors as they prepare meals. I must admit we enjoyed watching them as they learned. The servers are also students. They are... More

Everyone we meet at the Culinary Institute was so friendly and accommodating it made the entire experience that much more pleasurable. The had a delicious meal and although our waiter seemed a bit nervous, he was wonderful.
