Cibo Waterfront Cafe Ratings and Reviews
The food is very good, I have been twice before. The only issue I have is the horrific amounts of crumbs down any and all the seats. It was actually upsetting to see how dirty the chairs were.
Plus the area with the view is a carpeted area, which I found weird.
The appetizers are extremely large, but so delicious, just forced a take out box for the main course for a leftover lunch the next day. Our server was excellent!! Service was very efficient and friendly. The wine selection is fantastic. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Will definitely try again in the very near future.
Great service and the food is incredibly tasty. I took my family out for mothers day and after living in Winnipeg for about 16 years they were still shocked that we had such nice views here. The restaurant ambience is great for a variety of different occasions, from a nice date to a family dinner- a good balance between formal and casual. Thank you for another great experience!
We went for a combined birthday and Mother's Day brunch. We were seated at an undesirable table by the fire exit so we asked for a table in the back on account of the special occasion. The seating staff appeared annoyed that we had asked. Despite the majority of tables being available, they were unwilling to seat us there, stating there were reservations that were made before our reservation so we could not be seated there. The back section did not get filled until we were nearly done our meal more than an hour later.
Otherwise, it is a small menu but the food was decent and reasonably priced so I would say it's good value. Our waiter was nice and appropriately attentive as well.
Unfortunately, however, the special occasion was not the best experience from the start. In addition, there was nothing special for Mother's Day and they do not provide any special touches for birthdays either. I would not return to or recommend Cibo for special occasions. It was alright otherwise.
My girlfriend and I came here for our anniversary, at my sister's recommendation, and we were not disappointed. A small venue with a small menu to match, it felt both down-to-earth and high-class. We liked that, unlike some other nice restaurants, the huge windows allowed enough light that we could see what was on our plates!
I was unsure why we were not offered the lunch menu
Only breakfast menu offered to us. Perhaps the server thought we needed eggs with our liquor order.
The choices were few and the served selections were under seasoned and overcooked
I am more confused by how popular this place seems to be. Perhaps diners like bland overdone options
Have been to Cibo's a few times and the food has always been exceptional. This time however, my friend had a lovely meal but my lunch was lacklustre.
Based on that experience, I won't give up on them, but will definitely give them another chance. Worth the drive.
Went to Cibo with friends before going to the Concert Hall for a show. Staff were awesome and attentive. Food was fantastic. We ordered four appetizers and shared them (there were 4 of us). Plenty of food for all. Drinks were good as well. The flatbread/pizza was very tasty. They asked us if we were going to the theatre we said yes and they made sure they timed each appetizer so we are out 1/2 hour prior to going to the show. Will definitely go back to sit on the outdoor patio overlooking the River. Awesome place - won't disappoint! Can't go wrong with anything on the menu by the looks of it!!!
Excellent service, mundane food. Mentioned it was a friends birthday diner on reservation not acknowledged or even mentioned. Host off hand server excellent. Food pretty mediocre. With many restaurants in winnipeg will not be in a hurry to return to this one.
Our server seemed rushed, the food wasn't up to its usual standard. Very disappointing considering the good experiences we've had in the past (including a group booking for a wedding).
I'm not sure if there has been a change in chef or something but when the burger you order is charred on the outside and pink on the inside with a very dry bun something ain't right. The shoestring fries were delicious.
food was good. my steak and potatoes were both a bit underdone but flavours were good. bruschetta combos were great and the pickeral fritto was excellent. menus a bit limited - bit over casual - could use a few additional options. space is very trendy - nice reno of an old warehouse building. service was very good. as a big woman tho, the chairs were very uncomfortable. big people like to eat, will fill your restaurants..think about them when thinking about your chair and space selection. I swear I got a pressure sore from a chair smaller than an airline seat which I tried to shove myself in for 2 hours over a business meal. so..wouldnt recommend this place for bigger men and women as I dont think it would be comfortable for them - but otherwise - it was very good and a nice addition to the wpg food scene.
Second time for us at Cibo. Located in an historic pump house building on the Red River waterfront, it has a varied menu and comfortable atmosphere. Servers are always polite and prices are reasonable. The only quibble I have is the lack of a parking lot, meaning you have to hunt for a spot on Winnipeg streets where you can only get 2 hr parking, so you have to remain vigilant to the meter, or else you'll be contributing to Winnipeg parking fine coffers.
Service was great and Server i think "Ashley" was very good, friendly. Loved the bruchetta, delicious and so hearty. Only had one complaint, vodka martini came with no olives or any other veggie type insert and vodka and coke was not made well, tons of ice first time, sent back, second time no ice tons of coke, didn't want to keep returning over and over, we were there for a relaxing supper and drinks before an MTC show, only have so much time to enjoy. As i said above though, the bruchetta was the best and the soup delicious.
My husband and I went to Cibo for the first time to celebrate our anniversary; we were treated so well; everyone there was welcoming and congratulated us sincerely. Food was delicious and our waiter, Jereme, was so professional, attentive, and friendly. Superb service!
This was our third visit and it did not disappoint. The food and wine were very good and reasonably priced. Service was good and they didn't rush us- even tho' it was a Saturday night. The choice of bruschetta, the arinicini and the pickerel appetizer were amazing - definitely worth trying. We'll be back. Paul & Barb, Calgary
