    All was very good. I'm sure you know this....the issue is parking. I wouldn't come here with my wheelchair bound spouse, especially in the evening. Too bad because he would love it. My fellow diners all enjoyed their meals.

    As a frequent customer I was very disappointed in the level of service - the request was for a table on the patio - when we arrived there was 3 tables open on the patio - the hostess rolled he eyes and said it was busy there. Once seated we waited for a long period of time in excess of 8 minutes for someone to greet us. The serving personnel walked by our table handing out to go baskets to 2 tables and then left - thought it wasn't our server - finally we got up and left and only then realized that this was our server. Once Outside the hostess was arranging the outdoor tables that were open earlier for a arriving party of 2. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and service, food at this restaurant - this time the service was not what I would have expected. Lots of new faces in the staffing so maybe a pass should be given for a lack of training - maybe not as there was staff standing around at the bar for long periods of time. I'm disappointed to say the least! Thankfully there are plenty of great locations in the Exchange to choose from.

    Very nice atmosphere. Windows were filthy though. Went for my wife's birthday just her and I. Went for dinner but this is more of a lunch restaurant due to the menu options. I had the chicken club, breadding was fantastic but the sauce didn't really go with the buttermilk breading. Found that it tasted like it needed sowmthing. Wife had the smash burger, which was pretty good. The side ceasar and home made fries for the sides were outstanding! My green tea limeade was high priced but VERY good. Apart from the drink prices the food cost less than I expected. Service was very friendly and our food came out very fast. Would recommend for lunch but probably not dinner.

    Area is lovely, as is the building - thought patio would be on waterfront side (a bit disappointing). Waiter was very nice and helpful. Food was ok. Had brushetta - all 6 types on menu - shared between 6 at table. Tasty. Entrees were all underwhelming. Not a lot of taste/flavor. Certainly expected more for price. Specialty drunks we're pretty good, but very very small. Might go again for some apps/snack - but probably not in the near future.

    First time having dinner at restaurant with 5 people. Was fortunate to be at table at the river end of the restaurant and had a wonderful view. The service we had was wonderful, the waiter was attentive and provided excellent service. Three people of the group, first time to the restaurant and said would return. Ordered one of the pasta dish, which was good, garlic toast was included(which wasn't listed on the menu) could of been a little warmer and more garlic flavor(not a complaint, just fyi) Look forward to next visit

    Restaurant is lovely and it has a nice patio with a view of the river. The food was great. Major drawback is lack of parking. I went for lunch and there were lots of empty spots in the hotel parking lot but they are not available for CIBO patrons. Could there be an arrangement with the hotel that CIBO patrons can park for say 2 hours.

    Food & service are both consistent and consistently good. The only negative was the lack of beets on the 'Beef & Beet' salad. On the evening we were in attendance the noise level was overwhelming. I think CIBO would benefit from some noise cancellation or control work in the ceiling area for example.

    We enjoyed our visit and the food. Our server provided the right level of attention. I thought the sangria was very good. They offered red white and rose. I had the rose. Often sangria is too sweet this one was perfect. Only one sort of negative comment, it is a limited menu that perhaps hasn't changed much for awhile. I could be wrong.
