Great

Stopped in for a quick light dinner. Great chowder and an excellent salad. I love coming here. Something as simple as soup and salad... Done superbly.

A beautiful place to go for lunch. Check on the times when it is open. The lunch was very good. The CIA ground are beautiful especially during Spring, a Summer and Fall!

Yesterday I had the privilege of having the best lunch of my life at this restaurant in the Culinary Institute. We shared an appetizer of perfect mussels. Then we had a grilled lamb chop and also roast duck. They were so good and the meat was so tender and sauses devine. Then we followed that by 2 great deserts and... More

We came across the opportunity to dine at the CIA and one of their many restaurants via our advanced travel research on TA. We were only slightly taken back by the requirement to make an reservation and an un-refundable deposit to secure a dining slot. You really have to know you are going to be available for this place.

My wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant lunch here. A wonderful apptizer followed by two tasty entree's, finally followed by a tasty desert and the best coffee we have had in some time on our vacation trip. The service was excellent; when we filled out the customer review form we were unable to come up with something to say... More

We were passing through Hyde Park with an overnight on a Tuesday and not having been before, wanted to try one of the CIA restaurants. St. Andrew's was available. We had the Cioppino, Chicken and Lamb and all were excellent. The student staff are charming and do great work, which adds to the experience and makes it a thoroughly enjoyable... More

On a rainy March afternoon, my husband and I met out of town family members for lunch at St. Andrews cafe. To start, parking can be a challenge and getting to the cafe in the rain is quite an experience. Once there, the reception by the student staff was friendly and inviting. The menu featured produce from local area markets... More

We have eaten at the CIA many times but never for lunch or at the St Andrews Cafe. We were not disappointed. The lamb was delicious and the bread pudding as well. Our server was delightful Katie. She graduates in May and then on to the bachelor's program. We wish her the best. Her "front of the house" personality gave... More

Will probably return to other CIA restaurants first. Decor is country club modern. Food good but uneven. Carrot cake turned out to be a muffin. Gnocchi somewhat golf-ballish (fitting the name?). Ravioli dried and tough on edges. But perfectly cooked dorade and excellent cioppino. Wine list a bit limited, partly because they try to offer local wines, which are not... More

The restaurants at the CIA are all a worthwhile experience. St. Andrew's Cafe is a good example of the excellent food and service.
