"It's a long drive from Brooklyn to Hyde Park .... but it was worth it.
The service was good - the student servers seemed a bit nervous, a spoon and knife was missing - but their attitude and eagerness overshadowed that. The food was outstanding - scallops, truffle soup, chicken and duck .... all prepared perfectly and delicious. The dessert was also delicious.
Our table was ready upon arrival. Although in hindsight, the restaurant was only about 30% full when we arrived, and we were sat at a table right next to a waiter's station, so there was some waiters standing right next to us and it felt busier than it really was!
Overall, excellent! I wish the CIA was closer to the city!
Thanks, Judy"See more
"Despite being the first day open following summer shutdown we had a fantastic dinner. During the summer they only have a 3 course Prix fixe menu but we found some wonderful options. The corn chowder was excellent as w
as the caprese appetizer. The beef was excellent and cooked exactly to order. The lemon molten cake was not as described but is was very enjoyable. The wait staff was very attentive."See more
"Fantastic Vegetarian Burger! The best I have ever had. However, the Simply Grilled Salmon was overcooked (despite my concern toward proper cooking made clear upon ordering) and extremely underseasoned (including the sides included). I loved the waiter, James. He was personable and informative."See more
