The important thing at CIA is the food, not the service — which (I understand) is just a three-week apostrophe at the end of each student’s training. After all, this isn’t the Footman Institute of America; it’s *all* about the cooking, and the cooking is very good indeed — advanced apprentice, I’d say, which is just as it should be,... More

Have been here several times and always enjoy interacting with the students from the culinary arts program. We drove down from upstate NY to meet up with our son and daughter in law from NYC who took the train up to Poughkeepsie. Lovely setting with terrific service and food! We enjoyed all three courses and were pleased with the vegetarian... More

We had such a great time chatting with our terrific student server from Beijing. Great to share his experience. Lunch was great deal at three courses for 26$. I had rack of lamb and my wife pan roast chicken. Lamb was super tasty and tender. Starter choices all looked great, but we could only try two on the price fixed... More

I've dined at American Bounty many times over the past 30 years and always been delighted, but things have changed - except for the beautiful ambiance. The appetizers can't be shared, the portion is barely enough for one. The entrees are likewise very small. For example, the braised short rib is ONE medium short rib, no sides, with a $34... More

My husband and I arrived for a late lunch on a very busy day---100 students were graduating, and lots of family and friends were dining in the 4 restaurants in the main hall at the Culinary Institute of America. The tavern was almost empty when we arrived and we noticed many young people passing through the tavern on their way... More

Been here twice and will go again. Food at the CIA is always great. This dinner featured wild game and rare beers. As always the CIA service and cuisine is incomparable for the price.

This tavern portion of the Bounty is cozy and inviting. On the Saturday before Thanksgiving and a beautiful, sunny, warm November day, the place was crowded but not a long wait at all. A few minutes browsing in the gift shop down the hall and we went back to find our table was ready. I opted for Eaten by Bears,... More

We have eaten here many times and it has been amazing every time. The student chefs do everything - front and back of the house. We just love visiting the Culinary Institute of America!

We ate in the Tavern area of the American Bounty restaurant and the food was delicious. All of the restaurants inside the main building at the Culinary Institute had good menus but we were in the mood for more American type food.

We had a nice lunch here after doing some leaf peeping and walking over the Hudson bridge. The waitstaff and the chefs did a wonderful job. The food was excellent and service was perfect.
