Consistently fabulous meal from students taking a class

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... read 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.

Food used the freshest ingredients with amazing flavors. Presentation was perfect. You would never know your servers and those preparing your meals under the guidance of master chef instructors are students. Total professionalism. And their friendly demeanor makes for a totally enjoyable and relaxing dining experience. We went for lunch, and it could have been dinner. We will be coming... More

We had a wonderful meal. The service was very good also. Our server spent some time talking about his experiences at CIA which I found very interesting.

We booked this CIA restaurant for a weekend night at an early date because a number of trip advisor visitors and others had so suggested. The restaurant called twice to confirm suggesting that demand is strong. It was near graduation and many of our servers shared their plans with us for post-graduation which was interesting and entertaining in itself. Along... More

Knowing we were going to be up in Hyde Park, we made reservations prior to our stay. The atmosphere was very nice. The food was different than what we would normally eat, but it was a nice change-up. the portions are adequate especially if you are eating appetizer and dessert as well. You can even have a table near the... More

Not up to CIA standards. Very disappointed. Wanted to be doted on, but not at all the case. Waiter was more interested in himself rather than the 12 of us there.
