Cibo Waterfront Cafe Ratings and Reviews

I was there with 3 other friends and we all really enjoyed our meals and the service was good. We had a nice table and the view was lovely. My only complaint is that it is too loud, you really need to turn the music down a notch or two. I have seen this as a complaint before, but obviously you haven't made any changes in that regard. I could not take my elderly parents there, as conversation would be very difficult. I will recommend Cibos to others, but I will also give them a head's up that it is noisy, which I wouldn't describe as "energetic" just too noisy.

This was my second visit to Cibo and I won't be rushing back. We started with the Arancini which was very good and then had a couple of pizzas, a Caesar salad and the veggie sandwich for mains. Everything was just rather bland. The Caesar salad dressing was lacking garlic and the croutons were just toasted pieces of bread with a little bit of olive oil on them and also no seasoning. The crispy pancetta on the salad was very good though. The pizza sauce tasted like just plain tomato sauce and the sandwich was just pretty mushy. Honestly, I would just expect a place like this to have more memorable flavors.
Service was great and the decor and location are lovely.

Food was excellent, had the mushroom pancetta pizza. The service was good. The noise level too high. There was a guitarist in the restaurant and we could not talk it was so loud. Usually music is background music in a restaurant. The restaurant itself is cozy and has a nice atmosphere.

Waitress was friendly/food took too long/prices were high/fennel was chunky and tuff rather than sliced then for a salad/and we could not hear each other talk due to the excessive noise. The restaurant is very inviting and situated in a nice spot so after visiting 4 times, I am not sure I would come back or recommend it.

It took 40 minutes to get our lunch so we he to have the server pack lunch to go and eat at our desks at work.
Server didn't apologize and seemed quite indifferent to the fact that it took so long to get out orders.
When you have one hour for lunch and it takes 40 minutes to get your food it makes it impossible to support that restaurant.
This has happened 3 times now.
Will not return.

Need to anticipate number of customers better . Was there twice & they we're very short staffed so service was a little slow . Would also be nice if plaque in ladies washroom explaining history of building wwas in a more prominent place in restaurant or included on menu .

Le Burger week was the occasion. I was denied a burger because they were still serving breakfast. I wasn't told this before ordering drinks. When denied I paid for drinks and left unhappy. Next time warn people before they even sit down.

We hated the food it was bland and the noise level was unacceptable. Pricey for the blandness of the food. The fries were great but Clubhouse
Decor and service were great though. But we very likely won't be going back.

I've eaten at Cibo several times and have always enjoyed the food and the ambiance. I have eaten here at different times during the day and the service has always been great. I also like that the location's historical significance is celebrated.

The food is excellent, this was our third time at this restaurant. We like the area, food, etc. The only negative comment as oppose to our two past visits is that there was a group of two musician/singer, they were good but made it too noisy. Without a band was better!
Great service and delicious food! This r ...
Great service and delicious food! This restaurant has a cool vibe and great location. Parking can be tricky to find on a busy night. If you're making a reservation, perhaps specify where you'd like to sit. We were seated right near the hostess station and entrance even though there were better tables available. Most restaurants appreciate when you make a reservation and provide you with a decent table.

This was a special birthday dinner for me with a friend. A lot of places are very noisy and conversation is next to impossible. Here it was very nice for us. Dinner with a friend...the waitress was great. Didn't rush us. Food great also. Fries are awesome!!! I have already recommended it to one of my customers in a totally different field. Good place to go!!!

Our Greek Pizza had no feta and the salad with olives was terrible. Hardly any dressing and so blah. We are vegetarian and wished that the other salads (eg: steak and beet and Salmon, which both looked excellent) had a vegetarian option like grilled mushrooms, goat cheese or a marinated tofu. We did not complain to the server (who was excellent) because we were out for a special occasion with another couple and did not want to ruin our evening by complaining, but truly, our food was super blah.

Excellent dinning experience 4th visit to the CIBO, the menu could be a little bigger maybe white board specials. The service was fast friendly and efficient, the starters the Bruschetta is to die for and opens up the food discussion along with the Cheese plate is also a talking conversation point. We love the atmosphere and the décor the music was just excellent a blend of new and old alternative. The Patio was a welcome addition as we started our night off with drinks before heading in side for dinner. Plan on going back many more times, I would also recommend Brunch that menu too needs a little expansion.

The place has very high ceilings and not much to mute the music. So, if you dislike the track they have chosen, good luck. The menu was not inspiring. Food was prepared to a reasonably good standard. I would only return for the location, although, having said that, with challenging parking, might choose something else.

Food and ambiance was great and I can see myself going back over and over.
I am computer savvy yet still had difficulty booking on open table and might try calling for a reso next time.
Waitress wasnt too friendly and seemed a bit stretched.

I have been to your restaurant now 4 times, one was a luncheon for my daughter's university graduation, there were 12 of us. Love your restaurant, the food is always good and as well the service is excellent and we love the atmosphere, I have recommended your restaurant to numerous people I work with.

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.
