A pleasant evening and a surprisingly good meal at this little bistro on Park Ave.
Since we do not live in the City, we don' t think about going to town to have dinner in the City, but everyone enjoyed the meal, sitting outside on a warm evening celebrating a 22 year olds BIRTHDAY. Made me think just like Europe, were people sit outside and enjoy the moment!!! Loved that!! The wodka pasta very delish!!

First we found a long hair in one salad. There was a brief, muted apology and a new one arrived about 10-15 minutes later--we told them we were in a hurry. Then the dressing was pure vinegar on the beet salad, I think--it was more sour than the pickled vegetables we ordered. There are great restaurants nearby, give this one a miss!

I've walked by this place hundreds of times but have never stopped to eat here given the other choices on Park Ave. this place always seemed to be more about the beautiful people hanging out drinking espresso than about the food. We finally ate here when a friend was given the choice to pick the dinner spot. We waited 30 minutes for an outside table which was worth it given the nice spring evening - at least we could walk around Park Ave while waiting. The service was fine (not good, not bad) and the food was tasty. My two companions both had the salmon and said it was quite good and they would order it again. I got the smoked salmon panini which was flavorful but a bit light on the salmon. For my taste the menu is not that interesting (plenty of other places in town with similar line-up) but when the weather is nice dining outside on Park Ave cannot be beat.

Rude reception, inattentive waitstaff, and deeply mediocre food (think frozen salty food service chicken breast). Overpriced. Great space, but I can't see how this place stays in business. We're moving to Rochester in a month and will be sure never to return to Cibon.

Locals and travelers: Go someplace else on Park Ave unless you want overpriced poor quality food and waiters more interested in texting instead of serving you.
