Cibo Waterfront Cafe Ratings and Reviews

Food, drinks, and service was very good. This was my first visit. I had heard that the views of the river and city were great. Having made our reservation about a month earlier, I was disappointed that we were seated at probably the second worst table location. I had an excellent view of the Host/Hostess station and the comings and goings from the kitchen. Other tables were "reserved". I would suggest that you clearly specify when making the reservation, that you want a table with one of the views that's promoted. Unless everyone else made their reservation before I did, I'm disappointed with how my reservation was priorized.

Two old friends joined us to celebrate a birthday.
We enjoyed seeing the river out of the many windows.
Our food: burger, salmon salads, Magherita pizza was all good.
Our server was very efficient.
It was all very relaxing but we did notice the noise right away.
I could hear the woman I was talking to right beside me but it was an effort to hear what the other two were talking about.

An easy and comfortable atmosphere with a energetic vibe. Views are spectacular and tables well organized and spaced. The menu is diverse while remaining compact and imaginative. Cibo is a gem and is highly recommended.

My colleague and I went for dinner during our recent trip to Winnipeg. She is definitely a foodie and I can appreciate a great meal, well presented. From the cocktail menu through to our appetizers and the delicious pizzas we each had, we were VERY happy we had made a reservation. Our server was friendly and helpful and the food genuinely delighted us. We are looking forward to our next trip to Winnipeg.

Great atmosphere and food was fabulous! Went for a girls night out and really appreciated the waitress not rushing us and her friendly personality. Allowed us to chat as long as we wanted and we didn't feel pressured to pay the bill and leave. Would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant for a casual night out with great river views.

Lovely atmosphere! I had the Risotto balls (Arancini) which was fantastic, and the Cibo Pizza, who would have thought a fried egg on pizza would be so delicious!! We split the CBC, a flourless cake with blueberry compote, an excellent way to end the meal...well that and a delightful latte. What a neat area too, great for walking after dinner. Very impressed, service was excellent too, very funny waiter :)

Our server was one of the best I have ever had. Very considerate (it was so cold & he brought me some tea right away), respectful (when us old folks were having trouble with the machine), apologized for the lack of parking, wasn't goofy friendly & very clean cut, yet hip.
Very small selection of food choices for a bistro (burgers & pizza mainly).

When I booked my table electronically, I specifically requested a table on the patio. When I arrived, I was told that you do not accept bookings for the patio. Fortunately, you were able to find a table outside for us. I would have been happier to have been told at the time of making the booking what your policy was. Thanks.

I wish I knew our waiter's name, but he went above and beyond. I don't eat red meat and he even had the kitchen add more cheese and olives on the antipasto platter instead of the meats. He as so pleasant and very helpful! I will go back for him alone!

First time at Cibo's, sat on the patio nice and quiet to have conversations, the red sangria was the best I've had, the Caesar salad, delicious with home made garlicky dressing, pizza was very good! Would definitely come back.

This is a lovely restaurant with beautiful views of the Red River. The staff is always very friendly and the service is very good.
I wouldn't mind seeing more choice on the menu, but maybe that is yet to come.
Parking is a problem, especially if you are a lone female. It would be great if something could be worked out with the Mere hotel as they charge $10.00 to use their lot, which seems a bit outrageous.
I love the ambiance of this restaurant - makes me feel like I'm in another city somewhere.
Great Riverfront Spot
If you're looking for something unique/quaint, well look no more. Situated on the riverbank this old pump house has been turned into a real charmer. Sits right next to the Mere Hotel, which you could recommend to out of town guests. Quick jaunt right into downtown or Old Market Square, also right along the bike path. We really enjoyed the whole experience, and will most definitely be back.
Don't expect lunch until later
Disappointed that we had planned to go there for lunch at 11:30 and they said lunch isn't served until 1:00. We had to choose from a breakfast menu consisting of 5 items. Benedict was on a soggy bun and the sauce was sour. waitresses stopped serving us after we over stayed so left after no one paid us any attention.
Patio dining overlooking the Red River
Beautiful afternoon for a birthday lunch, I had the The Strip Steak Sandwich, with the fries, my friend had the Clubhouse with fries, plenty of good food, and great service. Our waitress also surprised me with an amazing Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream and a scrumptious mixed berry topping. Very enjoyable!

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.

We booked for an early supper hoping to get a patio table which we were able to do. However, on checking out the inside we loved the ambiance and moved inside. Our food was very good and reasonably priced. Loved the location and will be back.
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!
