Awesome food from the chefs-in-training

Ate here for a price-fixed dinner, The food was great, nice presentation, ambiance nice. The portions were very good. The students were friendly albeit seemed nervous. I guess the instructors are over seeing them and can get into trouble if we were not happy. We ordered the steak and it was very... read more

My wife and I had lunch here recently. Food was quite good and we enjoyed the service from the enthusiastic but inexperienced students. My only objection is that the wine list is almost 100% NY State and (speaking as someone born and raised in NY), let's face it, that's pretty limiting. There was only one white wine available by-the-glass that... More

The chefs in training offer a knock out deal during the weekdays. The food is always interesting and delicious. The service is good but these are students so often it is more fun to engage them and find out why they are at the chef college. They have knowledge of the food they are serving and are very opinionated. The... More

What a wonderful lunch we had! The restaurant is located in the main CIA building and there is ample visitor parking relatively close by. The restaurant is "run" by students under the supervision of their teachers and professors. The restaurant is lovely inside with a wonderful view of the fountain and grounds. Our meal started with some yummy brioche bread... More

What's not to love about this place. The location is lovely - right on the Hudson - the service wonderful and the food out-of-this-world. My husband and I came here for dinner and were seated by a charming young student in a white tux (didn't catch his name). Our waiter Alfred (who is about the graduate from the CIA) did... More

We attended the "Street Food" event at American Bounty. Some good traditional food choices... The company at the table made it extra special. Some choices better than others... A bit over priced for what was offered but will always love the atmosphere at the CIA

It is not fair to indicate if this is a restaurant for friends, family, business or couples, because it is an excellent experience for all! We all opted for the "prefix" dinner with choice of one either salad, soup, or appetizer, a dinner plus dessert. I went for the goat cheese tart to begin & frankly, with a salad or... More

Have been wanting to go here for awhile. Made a reservation through Open Table. The place is warm and inviting. Reminded me of a fancy steak house. LOVED the butternut squash soup. Had braised duck gnocchi which was good. Enjoyed the ricotta meatballs and the short ribs which were tender, although could have used a bit more flavor. For me,... More

First, I'm trying to understand how one of my better restaurant meals was prepared by students who have like, two minutes of culinary experience compared to many of the experienced chefs who prepare over-rated, overpriced, average meals that I tolerate at some of the nicer restaurants. Can someone help me with that? Our server, Josh, was fantastic and getting ready... More

I have been wanting to eat here for years but the reservations / schedule never worked. Finally a friend made reservations for 8 people and we went. Well it was worth the wait. A beautiful setting, magnificent table near a class wall and windows. Everyone loved what they ate. I had the swordfish and my wife had the ribeye. The... More
