Le restaurant n'était pas ouvert et le concierge de l'hôtel nous a dit que cela faisait 5 ans que celui ci avait fermé. Merci de ne pas nous permettre de faire des réservations si le restaurant n'existe plus.

I’m ao glad me and my boyfriend celebrated my birthday here; it was one of the most romantic dinners I’ve ever had. The food was delicious, the environment was beautiful; lighted by candles and a cozy fireplace. Also, the server was very friendly, lovely, and considerate. 10/10 for sure!

The quality of the food was good and it was delicious. The portions were small but that may have been because it was the Dine Out Vancouver 3 course dinner menu. I'll likely go back and have another dinner and hopefully the portions will be a little bit bigger.

Smaller sized restaurant with a beautiful, quiet ambience. Food was delicious but the portions could have been larger and took too long to serve.

First time dining here. i made reservation 2weeks before expecting to try their a la carte menu. Sadly they only offered set menu for valentines day which was fine to me but i booked through the open table and didn’t see any info saying that only offer set menu. It would be nice if they had reached out and let us know about it. We ordered the valentines day menu $75 per person, the portions were EXTREMELY SMALL. We had to share ONE PIECE of lasagna. Overall, the food was just AVERAGE. The service was VERY POOR. The restaurant was not that busy and none of the staff walked by to check on us. All they did was just dropping off the dishes and clearing the table. I was expecting more from all the reviews and we paid closer to $300. Very disappointed.

great food and experience on Valentines Day. Fantastic service! When we mentioned our hotel didn’t come with water, our server gave us 2 bottles of Italian mineral water in the house! A bit pricy but good food and service so will definitely be back!

We went there for the Valentines set menu. The food was good but I would have probably ordered other food if given the choice. The service and location were excellent. Will definitely go back in the future to try their regular menu.

We ordered the Valentine’s Day menu. 1st and 2nd course were extremely small. While the oyster was fresh, the quail egg foam was like eating air. The cod dish was a lot better, but a similar theme of being too small of a portion. The lasagne was probably the worst thing of the night as it was burnt, dry, and so small. The fact that we had to share this itty bitty piece of lasagne was sad. The fourth course was love birds which was delicious. The leeks on the bottom were not good and should be replaced with like carrots or potatoes. One downfall for the quail is that we had to use our hands to eat it which was not ideal. Last course was chocolate lava cake. We were expecting chocolate fondue as in fruits or brownies dipped in chocolate. It was alright, nothing special. The drink that was recommended was $30 and was not good. All in all, would not recommend as it was $75 per person and somehow we had to share two dishes which was not stated anywhere. Our bill was over $200 and we felt like our money should’ve been spent elsewhere.

Valentines dinner set-course menu. 75 Dollars/ person. Terrible food. Some of the worst tasting food I have ate in any restaurant... Let alone for that price.

I never leave poor reviews but felt compelled to do so. Please do not try a set course menu when your chefs clearly have no idea how to cook 'complex' dishes/ingredients. Keep it simple. Simple dishes with good taste at a high price point is acceptable. Instead we got extravagant ingredients poorly executed and truly horrible taste. Some of the dishes were not edible. I could see from other peoples facial reactions they were not enjoying as well. With a few cocktails to wash down the taste my dinner came to 238 dollars including tip. Unacceptable will never visit again.

Would i recommend Cibo to anyone? No and I would advocate against it!

The server was very knowledgeable and chatty. However, the food portions were so small we left hungry. They didn't do anything special for our celebration. No one was in there. They are only doing their take out menu so you only get 3 options for dinner. Don't go here to celebrate. There is so many better Italian restaurants downtown and for better value. I won't ever be coming back.

They didn’t even offer some bread for waiting abt 2 hours (no lies) for our mains. Apparently they gave our apps to another table. We also waited about 1 hour for the apps. (Reservation was at 7:15, got Mains around 9:30). Atleast they took off our wine from the bill. FOOD was seriously TOO LITTLE FOR THE PRICE. I get that fancy places cost more for less food, but this was wayyy too little. Did not have any satisfaction because even the food was blah, nothing special, just expensive food that’s made to make u believe that it’s super authentic.Never again.

This is my second visit. First visit was equally a bad experience, poor service and the only people in the restaurant. I thought I would give it another chance. The appetizers were okay, beef tartar and burrata- nothing special. Service was very poor, didn’t even have cutlery to eat with, no drinks until we were ready to leave, one item didn’t even make it to the table. Our entrees were very bland, didn’t care to eat them. Went elsewhere immediately afterwards.

Celebrating my 56th Birthday on a quiet Monday night...only 1 other table besides my wife and I...nice room, warm, with great music, lighting, and vibe, considering it was very quiet, which is ok for us...hard to make any mistakes from the back of the house, to the front of the house...Eden was our server, and was very polished, friendly, interesting, and efficient. The food was very good, tasty, nicely presented, average portions, Octopus carpaccio was on the smallish side, and a little bland, Beef tartar was delicious, nice portion, and also had the Tuna crudo, also nicely presented, beautifully executed! My wife and I continued to share as she always wants to eat this way...for the main course we shared the Agnolotti del Plin, which was superb, albeit a smallish portion, and one of my favorite Linguini Vongole, which was wonderful! The young Chef has game, overall a great experience, and will be back to try their Happy Hour! Also, a central location, and nice little Boutique Hotel!

Came looking forward to the lunch menu but was told only had the brunch menu for a 1pm Friday reservation, although on the sign said lunch was available. Not a fan of brunch. Very disappointed.

Came for the prix fixe New Years Eve menu.

Had high expectations but unfortunately this evening did fall short.
Positives - everyone that works here is extremely nice and polite. It is our server that redeemed our night. The atmosphere of the restaurant is fantastic, warm and eclectic.

Negatives - It certainly felt the restaurant staff were quite frazzled which was clearly seen in the food and service.

We received our table 30 mins after the time we booked. After 15mins of waiting at the door, they provided us a seat at the bar with glass of wine which was a great save.

Once we were seated, this is where things really fell apart.
It took 25mins to be spoken to after being served water. At this stage we had been at the restaurant for almost an hour with an empty stomach and wine. We had high hopes of ordering the prix-fixe with wine pairings but by the time someone came to take our order, there was only 2 minutes left to order our drinks (due to the provincial law on NYE). So in order to make up for this, it was suggested we get a bottle of wine to set us for the night with a great deal (a little disappointing since the menu had lobster and steak.)

Finally when the first course arrived, turns out it was the wrong dish. After realizing the mistake they removed it, but we proceeded to wait another 15 minutes to receive our first course.

The first and second course were great. However the rest of the dishes lacked flavour and were not cooked correctly perhaps due to stress in the kitchen (flour in the roux, well done lobster, deconstructed tiramisu with no resemblance to the real flavours i.e. coffee or chocolate and was overly sweet.)

Essentially this would not qualify as a "fine" dining experience. The service was pleasant, the atmosphere was warm and vibrant, but the food and experience lacked the finishing touches for it to be fine dining along with the cost associated.

Our server was lovely and food was good but we all honestly found the guy there to be a bit rude. My gf barely made it a foot in the door before he sternly said "you need a mask". My gf knew that and forgot hers and was planning to get one from the table at the front. You need to take a couple steps in the door to reach a mask at hostess area. Nicer way too remind people especially since wearing in a restaurant is very new to us all.

Likely won't be back for while. His rudeness didn't sit well with us.
