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.

The culinary planets were in alignment a couple of nights ago when seven of us got together for dinner at the American Bounty. When we arrived we were promptly escorted to our table (that doesn't always happen) and were served throughout the night by a group of cordial and attentive CIA students. We started off with soups, some of us... More

Part of the Culinary Institute of America, this restaurant is staffed by student chefs, waitstaff, etc. Excellent 4 course dinner with good wines: soup, salad, entree of grilled salmon and dessert. Definitely worthwhile

Our niece is a successful CIA graduate so we always make a point to dine here when we are in the area. Meal was uneven for the four of us. Salads were skimpy for the $11 price tag and half of my husband's lamb was tough and inedible. The manager was gracious and removed it from the bill. All the... More
