As you approach the restaurant, there is ample outside seating.
As you enter the Cibao Grille, there is a nice bar area where you can dine
and a more formal dining area
with very well appointed dining tables.
Some very good multigrain and multigrain/raisin rolls are brought to the table while you are perusing the Menu.
My dining companion (DC) and I tried a couple of starters.
I ordered the crab cakes.
I generally do not order crab cakes out as they more often than not seem to be short on the crab and long on the cake.
The crab cakes here were not bad, better than most.
DC had a Cibao Salad, generously provided gratis by the restaurant management.
Mixed greens and watercress were served with a citrus vinaigrette and topped with tomato, Orange Supreme, and hearts of palm. Again, not bad.
For an entree, I ordered the walleye. It was dressed with marinated artichoke hearts, tomato and Bearnaise Sauce.
Asparagus and mashed potatoes accompanied the fish. Delicious.
DC ordered Chicken Piccata.
It had been many moons since I have tried this dish and was on par in terms of deliciousness with my fish.
This was a traditional Chicken Piccata with breaded chicken breast, lemon caper butter and mushrooms. It was served with Rapini and in house made linguini dressed with olive oil and parsley. The pasta was very basic and was excellent.
On the whole our meal was very good. The starters were not bad and the entrees over the top delicious. The food served at Cibao is not edgy or experimental. It is good solid food that is very well executed with exceptional service and will keep you happy and coming back for more.
I cannot wait to go back and try a couple more of the entrees.
That's that for another post on forks.
