Top Notch!!! We had never been here before so I was a bit worried when we booked the party room for our company’s 20th anniversary. I was concerned about not
being able to order a-la-carte and never experienced the “family style” serving
before. We ordered the SOCIAL menu 3, at $65 per person. It was worth every penny. It was 14 courses, all of which were amazing (CIBO SERVICE STYLE CHEF'S SELECTION OF SIGNATURE PIZZAS, POLENTA FRIES, BEEF CARPACCIO, ARANCINI, SPIDUCCI, GRILLED OCTOPUS, POLPETINNE, GNOCCHI, RAVIOLI, ORECCIETTE, VEAL MILANESE, POLLO
PARMIGIANA, SALMONE FRESCO ATLANTICO, SEASONAL VEGETABLES and CHEF'S SELCETION DESSERT PLATTER). The food was ample and
had something for everyone on the menu. The service was outstanding, the attention to detail they provided was exceptional. I recommend this establishment for any private function. The way the table is set allowed for
conversation, even across the table because the room was sectioned off from the
restaurant so you can hear everyone (ours was a table for 16). We are already planning to have our company Christmas party here. Oh and an excellent selection for wines! You will not be disappointed. This place is top notch.

Arrived early, room was not set-up, understandable although one would expect that it be ready at least 30 minutes ahead of time for early arrivals.

Had called earlier in the day to advise that we would only be a party of 11 - the change had not been noted.

None of the wine had been decanted prior to our arrival. Regret not asking for this ahead of time. It would have taken the edge off the first sips.

The quality of the service was excellent.

The delivery of the courses left to be desired since 6 courses (12 platters) were brought to the table at the same time. At that point, the spaghetti and meatballs was returned to the kitchen for later presentation.

The overall quality of the food was average at most. The best courses were the fettuccine, shrimp, mushrooms, pizzas, radicchio salad, caprese, chicken parm, desert. The spaghetti and meatballs tasted as if they had been reheated. The polenta and rice balls were bland. The risotto-acrid and trout-dry : both inedible main courses.

The guest of honor was thrilled to see her name on the menu: although there was no special desert with candle as previously offered.

Expected our experience to at least equal the quality of our first dining evening at Cibo and to live up to the recommendations received on family dining there. It did not.

Cibo was advised in writing of our dissatisfaction. A gift certificate reimbursing us for the two inedible main courses would have been appreciated and would have avoided this poor review.

So we went there tonight , a group of 10 and we were forced to get a fixed menu, where the options were pizza and pasta ( yes pizza and pasta ) after we got so full of that high amount of carbs we needed something to speed up the digestion so we order some limoncello shots and they came up with this cheap vodka mixed with lemon that they called "Limoncello" , well anyways our group was amazing and we had fun and everybody was laughing that we spent 100$ per person on pizza and pasta (imaging spending 200$ in pizza and paste in a the supermarket). So if you are thinking in going to celebrate with a group get there very hungry or prepare to run 5km next day . I will never comeback in my life to this place. Service was good though but we paid the mandatory 18% . Good luck

Cibo is a classy dining restaurant with amazing wines, servers and food. I had the lingini with seafood in a light tomato sauce. You could taste the fresh ingredients with every swirl of your tongue. Top it off with a glass of Rose . The place is great for a date, girls night, or just flying solo sitting at the bar. Worth every penny

Beautiful restaurant and environment, and our server was absolutely fabulous despite being busy. We had the grilled calamari, veggie risotto, and chicken pesto linguine. The food was good, but not mind blowing amazing- still had great experience overall!
