    Food was great waitress was friendly but it seemed like she forgot about us through the night. We were on our motorcycle and I said that I was only going to be having one maybe two drinks, initially we asked to have the table cleaned and our waitress wiped half of the table leaving food or sauce spilled on the table from previous diners so we adjusted ourselves to the clean portion of the table. We ordered a rye and coke for my wife and she just walked away without asking for my drink order. When she brought my wife’s drink, I ordered an old fashioned . Another 15 minutes past and dinner arrived yet no drink. We finally got our drink and waitress asked how everything was food was great. We then finished our meal drinks we’re gone and waited another 10 minutes By then we just asked for the bill, cleared up and left. I’ve always enjoyed your place and understanding that everyone has an off night but if you’re talking to your staff moving forward I would say that they should pay attention to the details. In my case it would be as follows 1. Clean table fully 2. Let client order drinks or return in short order to take order 3. Ensure drinks are on table 4. When drinks are empty, check and see if clients want a refill Details like that not only enhance the dining experience for people like myself will probably result in higher revenues on your side

    The meal was delicious, the service was good.....except as out-of-town guests, we came in large part for the view. We asked a few times for a window seat. There were reservations that had specified window seats, however some did come available while we dined. I would have very much appreciated being offered a window seat at a slightly later time. As it was, where we were seated, we could not see out of any windows. I will be bolder next time!

    Although we booked more than a week in advance and noted it was our anniversary, we were placed a table directly next to the hostess station by the front door. This would not be a great table at any time but for our anniversary we certainly expected something more. We advised the staff of our disappointment but there were no other options due to two large parties booked that night, we were told. Staff were very sympathetic to our situation and comped our desserts. Can't blame the staff who were very attentive but in future we will make sure to specify where we want to be seated. Food was good so we just tried to filter out the negative stuff.

    We were told on arrival that they had another reservation for our table in two hours. It was unclear why we needed to be told that at the outset. Everything felt quite rushed. Server was friendly. Food was fine. Somewhat over priced. Good location and interesting decor.

    I was visiting Winnipeg and went here for dinner, it was a beautiful setting by the river and had a trendy vibe. We enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich and the beef and beet salad. The food was yummy, server was friendly and service was perfect. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

    The hostess gave us attitude for showing up a few minutes ahead of our reservation time even though we weren't expecting to get sat early, we just wanted to let her know we were there. Then our server had zero personality, barely smiled and spoke so low we could barely hear her. Otherwise service was adequate but not stellar. The food was okay, bruschetta was plain tasting and all cold, expected the toppings to be warm but even if this was how it was meant to be it was very underwhelming. The rosee pasta was also bland and no salt, pepper or fresh parm in sight or offered. The mushroom pizza was the best of all items tried but still plain tasting. The highlight of our evening was the prosecco and wine ordered. The server rushed us out without offering a final cocktail to the individual in our foursome not drinking wine/prosecco, and disappeared. Must have been the end if her shift and she couldn't wait to get that tip. Anyway ambiance is great , wish the food and servuce was too

    Our meals were delicious, very flavourful. The service was excellent. However Cibo needs to do some general maintenance of their dining chairs, must of them were ripped and the sponge was sticking out - they have seen better days. The women’s washroom was down to one stall as the other was ‘out of order’ and the sink and soap dispenser are in dire need of repair. It’s time to do some renovations. I understand restaurants are trying to catch up from the amount of money lost during COVID, but these seem like basic upkeep items. Hopefully they will get to them soon. Again the food was wonderful.
