Came to Cibo for brunch and we felt like we were on vacation. There's an egg, waffle, pasta, roast beef carving, salad, cheese and cake stations. The only downside is we felt that we were always looking for the server when we needed coffee and water refills. Other than that, we had a great experience with the staff and at the restaurant. We plan to come back soon!

I have been here several times before and have always really enjoyed it. It was kind of disappointing on Saturday mostly because the service just wasn't at the level that it normally is. Usually three or four servers are looking after each table and they are always one step ahead of you. Not the case on Saturday. I also noticed that it wasn't as busy as it usually is even though the city was very busy last weekend-- maybe it has been going downhill for a while -- new management maybe?? My food was good but not spectacular although my companions enjoyed theirs more. Given that it is a wine bar, the servers should be suggesting wine pairings as a matter of course. I will be checking out someplace new the next time that I am in Toronto.

Very good pizza and salad from the special lunch menu for myself and two friends at lunch plus a lovely glass of rose for two of us - which the waitress helpfully mentioned was quite dry -- fine with us. Table on the patio as requested - with the waitress happy to switch us to a more shaded table when our third guest arrived and felt it was too sunny. Laid back and quiet. Would come again and try the handmade pasta next time.

Honestly, I have been about 4 times to Cibo since it opened at the King St. Location. Every time I've been, Im reminded of why I dont come often. The poorest service in the city from most of the waitresses. Wish I was being dramatic, but its not the case. Some of the worst service my friends and i have received. We actually got up and left after 1 drink and didnt even finish our meals we were so put off by the whole experience. The girls at the front door are nice, but thats about it. Once you get in you're made to feel like you're bothering the servers with your order. Getting a drink takes forever, asking questions about menu items gets you eyerolls and big sighs like they dont have time to tell you about the food or drinks, or they are annoyed that youre asking. They look like they dont want to be there when they are serving you, and it makes the customers feel the same way. Nice decor and a sunny patio are not enough to make this a pleasant experience alone....Service is so important and its lacking here. We went across the street to the Keg to finish our girls night and we were treated like customers should be, smiles, options, you know, SERVICE. Its like night and day between the service of these two bars. Wont be going back, wish I remembered the name of our server, just horrible. She looked like she was still drunk from the night before (and we were there for dinner!) Her name was short with 3 Letters.

We were greeted in a timely manner and were even seated before our reserved time on a Saturday night. Our waitress was another story. Hard to get a hold of and drinks took way too long to come from the bar. Pizza was delivered cold to the table. Fettuccine Alfredo was not as advertised on the menu. Had Gorgonzola cheese in it which is a very strong acquired taste.

I have been here on numerous occasions, but it was the first time at this restaurant for my 3 friends. As always, the food was very good. Usually the service has also been very good, but unfortunately, tonight our waitress took a bit away from our experience. My friends noted that she was grumpy and she didn't seem very attentive to our table, as we had to ask several times for water. For me, I definitely didn't feel the service was up to par. I usually feel like the waiters/waitresses make you feel very welcomed, but tonight our waitress seemed like she was just going through the actions. I know people can have an off night, it was just too bad my friends had to have that as their first experience here.

We visited in celebration of my friends bachlorette. It took 20 minutes to get a waiter which we needed to ask for as they did not know who had pur table. It took foever for our drinks and appetizers to arrive and we had to ask for complementary bread. FOUR tables that arrived after we had our appetizers and had their meals before we asked about our dinners when we had been there for 2 hours (very hungry after a day at the spa). the manger offered to give us free dessert, but we didnt plan on ordering it as we had DESSERT PLANS.
We had dinner served and the pasta dishes were ok, i wouldn't ever get them again. too plain tasting. Not good value for the price. We regreted not going to a smaller place.
Dessert randomly showed up. So we didnt get a chance to say no. frozen style. it was free.
I had to leave the table to move my car. We were not treated seriously. For a tuesday night, i had expected much better service.
Don't waste yopur time.

Service at this location is nowhere near as good as the one near Yonge and Eglinton. I am not sure why - it was pretty empty for a Sunday night.
Good food as usual! Except the starter bread did not seem fresh at all (again not sure if it is just this location because the other location is awesome)

I've been here prior to this occasion. It's a lively restaurant. Very chic. Awesome food. It's a great environment for everyone if all ages. My grandparents (who are in their 60's) came down to the city from the suburbs and even they really enjoyed this restaurant. It's a place for anyone.

The food was excellent, ambiance and decor were both on point as well. The only downside was the service was very spotty, different servers taking care of us made it very impersonal. Plus we were rushed out after we finished our meal, even though we were planning on ordering another bottle of wine. Service needs work.

The server was very courteous and pleasant. Food was served promptly .I liked the fact that the tables are well spread out and therefore noise level is low. Special thanks to our server Catherine for making our anniversary a memorable one.

We had the best calamari that I have ever experienced at a restaurant. The server was very good and the overall quality of the food was good. There was no shade on the patio so unfortunately we could not eat outside.

It was my first time going to this restaurant. I went with three other female friends, our waitress was amazing, we all enjoyed our meal and it's a nice looking place. Two of us had a virgin mojito--it was so damn good! I'll definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

We had a voucher from Groupon for Brunch buffet which included a glass of Italian bubbles (such as Proseco) per person, but the servant refused to provide the Italian bubbles portion on the voucher although we paid for it in advance when we bought the voucher.

Cannot say enough great things about Cibo. I've been going here for years, when it used to be called Ciao Wine Bar. This is the first time I've been to the King location, I usually go to the Yorkville one. This location was gorgeous. Beautiful, ambient and warm lighting, charming romantic and fantastic server we had. Whenever I visit from the states I'm sure to enjoy a dinner at Cibo. Highly recommend!

I went to Cibo with 3 of my girlfriends for my birthday. We all had wine, tasty apps and Delicious main courses! I would recommend their gnocchi or any of their pastas really as they are very fresh! My friend is gluten free and found there were many options for her including gluten free pasta! One friend had the tuna and it was very good as well! Service was amazing, our waters were always full, and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. We will be again for sure!

The wait time to get our food was ridiculous and they couldn't even get our order right! We waited 1.5 hours for our main (45 for apps) and another 45 for the main. We missed the movie we had planned to go to because of the long wait. The server mentioned she was sorry for the long wait but kinda brushed it off seeing that we were really not impressed!

The ambience is amazing , the place is sooo trendy , the food tastes so delecious ! Me and my husband had mushroom risotto, canniloni stuffed with spinach& ricotta, seafood fettuccine , and their baked bread.
As a dessert we had lemon& ricotta cheesecake , and ferrero roche cake
Love everythinnnnnng about this place

our server was very good. she was pleasant and quick...although we weren't looking fir fast suggestion: ask your clients if they are in a rush this way you can adjust your service level I made reservations online and stated it was our 25th anniversary. someone called me to confirm my reservations and I mentioned it was my 25th anniversary and, we told the waitress the same...we got rushed out I wouldnt call us regulars at your restaurant but we've been at Cibo a few times We were not looking for anything free or anyone singing but allow me to enlighten you : being the redtaurant of choice fir a couple celebraring 25 years of marriage should say to you : lets give thi
couple a nicer table (one that doesnt wobble by the way), in a nicer location would have been nice to be acknowledged since you asked on the reservation And I told you 2 other times. good food, good ambience, good service...but I dont think we'll be back ...its a principle thing. if you want to call me : we were there thursday june 30 at 8.
