Cibo Waterfront Cafe Ratings and Reviews

My companion had the cibo breakfast and I had the eggs benedict. We both noted that the food was not very hot and that the fried potatoes did not taste fresh. The italian meat served to both of us tasted sour so we did not eat it- we didnt know if that was normal for the meat as we had never eaten it before so we did not complain. I did send back my eggs Benedict as the poached eggs were overcooked-. They brought a fresh serving and actually took my meal off the bill without me asking. The outdoor patio was serene and lovely. I would try it again for lunch or dinner but not breakfast.
Lunch with friends
Ambiance is great but restaurant was warm (air conditioning not working??). We ordered two individual size pizzas and one was ok the other oven dried. Service was very good though.

great little spot will go again. definitely recommended. the was a great guitar player/singer on the night we were there.
The menu was very limited & unmemorable.
Really disappointed in the menu selection, taste of food and value for money. Restaurant in a fantastic, romantic, industrial setting, however food totally fell short. Will not go back.

Fantastic restaurant with a great view and a nice little tucked away "great-find" to Winnipeg evening dining. Would love to see just a few vegan options to the menu though.
We enjoyed our evening very much. I would say our biggest complaint would have been----where to park. The food was very good and our server was excellent------very friendly, outgoing and knew the menu well. We didn't get her name but she did a great job.

Cibo...slightly above average? I noticed that the appetizer selection seems to be smaller so it was a little more difficult to do a tapas/sharing style meal. We wanted to try a bit of everything. The bruschetta was interesting with the different choices. The salad we ordered (chicken?) was delicious and was dressed perfectly. The seafood pizza was OK. I love seafood and eat it all of the time but the pizza seemed to be "fishy" smelling. I had heard that if seafood isn't fresh, it can have that fishy smell. In any case, the service, company & wine were excellent!

This is the third time we have been here and we have had good food and good service every time we have dined here.
Love This Place
There is absolutely nothing wanting here- the food, service, and atmosphere are all fantastic. It's located in a gorgeous historic building, in the trendy Exchange District.
Hit and Miss - Best Views In Winnipeg
My wife and I had a great dining experience. We started with the bruschetta and the risotto balls as appetizers. Our mains were the Cibo Pizza and a Carbonara. ... another couple we were with will never go back. They started with the poutine and some kind of pickerel appy. Both were horrendous. No other words to describe it. They had the same mains as us, so those were ok. Both of their app's should never be served anywhere ever again. This place has the best views in town, and a great atmosphere, but I fear if they dont get a stronger menu it'll be lights out. I am truly pulling for them.
Excellent food, excellent service.
Cibo is perfect if you want a vibrant restaurant with gorgeous drinks and excellent food. The service is great and the view of the river is beautiful. The old industrial look of the restaurant compliments the neighbourhood, and the overall dining experience is esquisite. Perfect for any occasion.
Food was excellent. Ambience and scenic view is wonderful . We will be back
After making a reservation two weeks in advance, I was disappointed to be led to the table right behind the host station at the front door. I asked for a different table but they were not able because of big groups taking up the central part of the restaurant. You would think the table near the door would be left for walk ins. Our server was barely friendly and did not offer any insight into the menu, or suggestions. She didn't even try to make conversation or eye contact. Being that we were so close to the front, we could see she was friendly with the staff. Why not the paying customers? The food and drinks were good. I could get over the bad table, if the server could make up for it with some personality. It is disappointing when you are going out for a special night to get a terrible table and a disinterested server when the atmosphere and food are so good.
Very nice place
This place has a very nice ambiance and a beautiful view if you are seated by the window. We went in the past few times and service was hit and miss, however, I recently went two weekends in a row for different functions and both times service was very good. Our waiter was very attentive, funny, and personable.
Girls Nite OUt
Had a great Girls Nite Out at Cibo's.....a little loud inside due to the extremely high ceilings. But food was fabulous.

I really want to like this restaurant- love the room and the location. The food is just bad and unfortunately this has been my consistent experience.
Great at correcting mistakes
We were enjoying our time at Cibo's with our pre-dinner drink...waiting for the food to come. The waiter apologized that the "special" that had been made was the daily special pizza not the daily special pasta, as ordered. With apology, he gave her the pizza, and let her know the pasta was coming. It was delightful to get a sincere apology and a tasty pizza in the evening that we hadn't counted on!
The food and service was outstanding.
I love that this historic building has been renovated into a restaurant. I have lived and worked in this area for years. I always thought this building had great potential. I am happy someone has come forward with a great atmosphere for dining. This was my second visit. I'll be back.
Great food & unique atmosphere
Love the arrancini and pizzas. Great service and close to theatre and concert hall district.
2nd time back A reservation was made a month ago. I asked for a table at the back. By a window. Away from the kitchen. 2 tables away from were we were last time. If we go again I will include a map. I was disappointed.
good food, great service, good view
we celebrated my daughter's birthday at Cibo's and all of us had tasty meals and the waiter took all the extra time we required to make it a special meal. The setting is wonderful and we will return!
Was looking for a place to take a friend for lunch before she left the peg and was steered this way by a friend. Great choice. Good food. Great service. Good atmosphere for a quiet lunch. I'll be back

Great Business Lunch
Went to Cibo for a lunch meeting last week and was very impressed. Our reservations had no issues and we were seated quickly. Service was great & very friendly. Tried the sausage & fennel pizza and the panino sandwich; both were terrific. Good beer selection too. Would definitely recommend it.
Went for Breakfast. They had a fantastic selection. Had the eggs Benedict - unique twist on a contemporary favorite. 10/10 - would go again.
Beautiful atmosphere for a avant-theatre dinner
The atmosphere and the view are really beautiful, the service was very prompt and friendly, and the food was delicious. It was perfect for a pre-show dinner with friends, near to all the theatres in the exchange district. I would definitely go again, maybe with a date as it is would be a romantic place to talk and enjoy the scenery!
early Sunday evening dinner!
Went for dinner around 5:30 and wasn't busy at all! Our server was great and since it wasn't so busy the food came out quickly! The white wine sangria was sweet and fruity, carbonara wasn't like the tradition version but still tastes great with a bit of spice!! started getting busy around 6-615, the music was fun and not to loud. will defiantly be going back to try their pizza!!! great date night!
THE FOOD ,SERVICE,MENU CHOICES AND ATMOSPHERE ARE JUST WHAT WE WANTED TO CELEBRATE OUR FRIENDS' 80TH BIRTHDAY. MSOT RESTAURANTS WOULD HAVE OFFERED A FREE DESER TO SHARE BUT NONE WAS ON THIS OCCASION, EVEN THOUGH THE SERVER WAS AWARE.
Our server was very attentive and personable.
A very nice surprise... hidden discretely behind a hotel. :)
Excellent lunch. Atmosphere and food awesome
I found the server not friendly. No smiles, did not connect with us
The hostess was terrible . She acted like she didn't want to be there . She was very rude like we were bothering her. We have always had great service so this was so unexpected.... it really turned us off .
Great food! Great atmosphere
As the title says, great few, great atmosphere. Restaurant is bright with a great view of the river and downtown area. Would love to see the city approve a back patio over the water. It was my third time here and have yet to be disappointed in any way. Great service as well worth the walk since it's a few blocks off downtown. Looking forward to trying a dinner meal there sometime.
