    Good food. Great atmosphere. I had one of the pizzas. Waiter told me after the fact he puts banana peppers 🌶️ on it to spice it up a bit. Would have liked to know that when ordering. Overall, a good experience.

    Our server was excellent! It’s unfortunate that we were told by the hostess that we have to be done within a certain timeframe as our table is reserved (despite that we too had reservations)! It does set a bit of a negative tone .. less than welcoming. And hey - that empty table that was on the upper level (the one we requested with our reservations), the one that we were told was already reserved and was likely unavailable, well.. it sat empty through the duration of our dinner. Hmmmm 🤨 And although the food was fabulous, and I am generally a healthy tipper, I don’t feel that it is appropriate to start the tipping option at 18%. I usually give 20% but that’s because I choose that. I think it’s in poor taste to force someone to start with 18%. Nobody else does that. It’s a real turn off. Were it not for the good friendly waiter, I would have opted out of a tip just on the principle alone. And please get some designated parking for your patrons. In the winter it could be an unreasonably uncomfortable walk. Thanks

    CIBO continues to offer excellent food and service. The ambience is rustic and music is low key....never felt like a competition between my partner and the music. Great spot to dine if going to MTC or the concert hall for an event.

    Cibo is a perfect place for a fantastic meal or drinks with people who you want to have a conversation with. The drink menu is amazing, the food menu is diverse without being overwhelming, and the ambience is somehow not elegant and comfortable. Do not ruin this place.

    Excellent food. The service was very good except that we were put at less than ideal table and despite asking if it was possible to put at a different empty table with a different view, we were told that it wasn’t possible. A great ambience.

    The food was excellent and the service staff were great! Had a wonderful mocktail and was very appreciative that the restaurant had a mocktail list to choose from. The price for the mocktail was quite high but it was so good that I didn't mind having one...but the pricing did keep me from ordering a second one.

    Really enjoyed Cibo but I wouldn’t get the meat and beet salad again, to much dressing Or if I did get it again I’d ask for dressing on the side. I want to try the other salad with fried chicken next time. Wonderful place, great service, really enjoyed Thank you Cibo❤️
