I don't tend to like involved restaurant experiences. I like good food, but I'm not a fan of all the other "stuff" that comes along with a "nice" restaurant. American Bounty was perfect. It was delicious, the staff was all nice, but it was not pretentious or fussy. I've eaten at other CIA locations and restaurants and this was my favorite by far.

I was skeptical after having had a disappointing meal at Bocuse about a year and a half ago but this fare did not disappoint! Attentive service, perfect seasonings, varied flavors made for a wonderful lunch experience!

The restaurant is one of a number inside the Culinary Institute of America. One side of the restaurant faces the lovely grounds, the other side surrounds a large window where you can look in on the students and instructors as they prepare meals. I must admit we enjoyed watching them as they learned.
The servers are also students. They are friendly and sincere, but not the smoothest servers. A number of minor errors occurred, but our server was so nice and was trying so hard we could not complain. Food and drinks were all excellent with a focus on New York producers.

In great anticipation we had made reservations for the American Bounty Restaurant. The staff was friendly, however our server was not at the level of knowledge regarding the fish offers, or the wine. The salad for $9.00 was average, the scallop special also for that price contained two scallops, and two chorizo rice croquette. The entries [I had stripped bass [small portion, tasty-but no vegetables or starch]. Once dinner was over, the desserts were all butter and cream--[we had informed them ahead of time regarding no dairy. Very expensive for what we had. We did walk the campus before and after dinner, it is a beautiful location. This was a bucket list item, but it was one of the biggest dinning disappointments.
