Our annual high school get-to-gether this year; three of my friends traveled to Hyde Park to join me for lunch. Food was wonderful; a favorite amongst three of us was the New Zealand mussel appitizer portion was huge; entrees of salmon and chicken were delicious and for dessert lemon tart for two of us was yummy! Beautiful room great service... More

We finally were able to coordinate a date for our family of nine to go to American Bounty. Since we were traveling an hour and a half we decided to go for lunch. They sat us at a lovely round table and were able to seat us upon arrival even though we were 20 minutes early. Our waiter was super... More

Our meal was interesting and some of it was truly delicious, especially the salmon with a melange of woodsy vegetables. The salads were way too small, especially for the price. We loved chatting with the sommelier and our server who told us all about their academic programs. It was clear they truly cared about excelling in their roles.

The CIA has several restaurants on its campus in Hyde Park. We only had time for this one on our recent visit, but we loved our experience. The atmosphere is comfortable and a bit eclectic, and the food is creatively prepared and presented. It is fun to get to know the wait staff if you can, all students at the... More

We stopped in at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America), to see if we could have lunch, as we were traveling north. We didn't really expect to be able to eat there, but were surprised that they accepted walk ins and that the Tavern was empty. We had to sit in the bar area, but it was decorated very nicely...

Went with a tour group and was skeptical how good a prefixed meal would be? The 3 course chicken entree was outstanding from the homemade rolls to the dessert! Excellent service also! I wish I lived nearby.Highly recommended!

We visited with fairly middle of the road expectations, given this is a cooking school and the chefs and servers are all learning the craft. We were surprised at how clunky the service was and that the food, overall, was not good. Our server was rattled by my food allergy and he rushed away when I told him about it.... More

We were happy to see a slightly different menu for lunch here than what's on the internet for this restaurant. And the prices were a little lower which helped us have all 3 courses which we enjoyed immensely. Yes, the portions aren't huge but quite adequate. And the artistry and taste and excellent white linen tablecloth service are worth every... More

We went to the American Bounty restaurant at the Culinary Institute with very high expectations and were very disappointed. The service was mediocre - they took away our silverware after each course, then served the next course and then had wait for the appropriate silverware to be delivered. The portions are small (nouvelle cuisine) with thinly sliced, tiny bits of... More

This was a great place for lunch. It is like a '50's diner. Great cheeseburgers and milk shakes. Also great salads and other entrées. Good attentive and prompt service.

Thank Rebecca W
