There was nothing particularly bad here but everything just seemed overwhelmingly average. Last time I was here was on a date, and later found they'd charged my date's card twice.

Thank you so much Cities for an amazing dinner experience last night! We came with the entire family, plus some, so we were 17 people total, and all of us enjoyed our meals thoroughly! So much food and all delicious! Table was full of appetizers from the spinach dip to the chicken bruschetta and buffalo wings. Then I think all of us had something different from the menu and it was all amazing...i couldn't decide between steak or pasta so a few of us shared...YUM :) \nWe are definitely planning on coming again soon with the family!

We will never go back, this restaurant has gone totally downhill, took 45 minutes for appetizer, 30 more for salad then raw uncooked food. Terrible service and food was even worse.

Neat enviorment, cute place for a girl's night or a casual meeting. The food is hit or miss depending on what you order, not too big of a selection though. Wonderful wait staff/ hosts. Management is unproffessional though. If you have a comment or complaint it will most likely be brushed aside. If you want a unique dining experience, this is the place to go.

We went and loved the building but our food was over priced and terrible. Our food was too salty and just sad. I tried to order something else but it also was bad. Just not worth the money. We won't go back. We got the feeling that the club atmosphere is what people go there for, not the food.

Love Cities! My favorite is their steak salad. So fresh and yummy! Have been there many times for dinner, and most of the time for business lunches.

First of all, before I begin.... MOST BEAUTIFUL RESTAURANT IN TOWN! Not only is it beautiful, but it has DELICIOUS food & dessert. It has many entree's to choose from in their big menu. For the amount of food you get, to the amazing atmosphere, they have GREAT PRICES!!!\n\nMy husband and children love going to Cities for dinner. My children love watching the slideshow movie of all the cities around the world. They even have an area with twinkling stars on the ceiling. So pretty! \n\nMy favorite appetizer is the Calamari...Favorite entree's are the Crab cakes, and the Chicken Parmigiana....DELICIOUS! \nWe try to go about a couple times a week. We always leave happy with the service and of course the food. If you haven't been to Cities it's definitely the place I would recommend to anyone that is looking for a great food with affordable prices! 5 STARS!!!

We visit cities about 2-3times a month, but not anymore. Tonight we went to Cities for dinner. I ordered the steak and martini. The martini came and it the glass was half full we sent it back. My steak came shortly after, I cut into it and took 2 btes and realized that it was not for me. The steak didn't taste like anything not the seasonig nor the meat. It wasn't good! I sent it back and ask to order the salmon. Instead of being allowed to order the salmon, I was interrogatd as to why I did not want the steak. The manager on duty went to inform the owner and we were then told that I could order the salmon, but would have to pay 50% of the steak as well. i refused because I did not eat 50% of that meal. When I asked for the owner who made that decision he refused to come out. Instead he sends others to do his dirty work. Very rude and not management material If you want to eat at Cities, just be sure of what you are ordering, because if you send it back you will still have to pay for it. Citiesd business and customer has diminished and with stunts like this I can see why. Cities will never have my business again and I urge you to reconsider before eating there.

We love Cities. But......if you have a problem or a complaint do not depend on management to care. We went Saturday and had ordered and waited quite a long time when we realized the people who came in after us had received salads and food. We had not even received our appeitizer. My husband complained to the hostess and nothing was done. Our waiter could not believe that our appeitizer or salads had not been delivered yet. The management delivered the salads to our table but just set them down and left. No ""how is your food or anything"", She also dresses worse than the hostesses and wait staff. Very unprofessional. Not wanting to make a scene, we paid for our food but probably will find a new ""favorite"" restaurant.

My family ate at Cities last night with a large group of friends. There were 8 adults and 6 children, including 4 in highchairs. Although it would have been a nightmare for most restaurants, and most servers would be flipping coins to see which unlucky person had to wait on us, we had the opposite experience at Cities! Our server was fantastic and prompt, she even took the orders for the kids first so they wouldn't have to wait as long for their food. The staff was friendly, despite the fact that we were probably very loud and their worst nightmare on a Saturday night, and the food was wonderful.

I have been here twice now and we had Sam for our waiter,and you talk about service he is the best.I have told my friends about the restaurant and we had our two friends b-day there Sat the 15th and then headed to Tanglewood for the light show. The food was so good my girlfriend ordered the crab dip to go for her family. The portion you recieve was more than enough we all took half home. I had the salmon and it was perfect,my girlfriend had primerib she said it was wonderful. The desserts you can""t even imagine Sam brought it out and had written happy b-day in strawberry syrup that was so cute.So if you want to do something fun for the holiday go there for a girl night out meet Sam in the bar and then go to the lights you""ll have lots of fun.

Cities is one of my favorite places to go for the normal American type meal, their chicken and pasta is good, drink specials are great, they have a pretty good wine selection. Their food is not always seasoned as much ad I'd prefer, but otherwise it is great. The service is always good, the host is always friendly, there is normally no wait for a seat. A good place for going with a group!

Best chicken salad I have ever had! Though I have had several menu items and have always been satisfied with the food, service and value, till yesterday. Enjoyed my 3rd or 4th visit for a chicken salad sandwhich. Almost through, and I bit into a fairly large piece of chicken bone. Accidents happen, and I simply pointed it out to the waitress without any expectations. I even ordered a chicken salad plate to go afterwards. She returned with the bill for the full amount. I expressed my surprise, at the full total. Said she had explained to the manger who then came over to offer a lame explanation. Till this point I was fine, but then her lack of good business sense, prompted a less civil approach. Before leaving she took off the one of my orders. Too late. I shouldn't have to ask. I will return here, the food is that good. Glad I did not have a customer or co-worker with me. Good customers are hard to find and even harder to keep, even when everything is good. People can make or break it! It did in this situation.

Cities has a remarkable atmosphere. Its a great place for just about any occasion. The menu has a good range of variety. Every dish I've ordered has been GREAT! The service has always been good. Everyone I've taken there for their first visit raves about it and have turned out to be repeat customers. GREAT place for a date, girls night out, busniess lunch or dinner and for family dining (altough loud children my distrub the quaint atmosphere), Wish there were more places like this in the Winston-Salem/Kernersville area.

If you're looking for a dressy casual restaurant (think pearls and polos with nice jeans or khakis), Cities is a great place to go. The service has always been very attentive, the portions are great, and the food is delicious.\r\n\r\nLook at the pizza for a little less traditional view on a classic (and maybe share with your date so you both have garlic breath!) or go for steak if you're a meat-lover.\r\n\r\nThe ambiance is unique (try to sit in the sunken dining room): not fancy, but fresh. The worldly feel is taken maybe a little too far, but in W-S, it is nice to know that SOMEONE is trying.

The ambience is magnificent. A sunken dining room has a fountain that sits in front a large screen projecting views of various cities around the world, a fiber-optics ceiling that gives the impression of a starlit sky above you, and elegant, comfortable seating. For smokers, the seating around the bar is no less impressive. A large mural covers the walls behind large, raised booths, giving an upbeat mood to the room. And the food is wonderful. From appetizers to desserts, the taste and value are remarkable. Speaking of desserts, the Cities Sundae doesn't make the dessert tray for showing, but it's possibly the best dessert.\nEntree Recommendation: Bayside Chicken & Shrimp.

The first thing you will notice about Cities is the ambience. There is fountain outside. There is a changing video mural covering one wall in the sunken lounge. The Greek salad is good as is the spanokopita. Try the wood fired pizza. The Mrs. and I shared the three of them family style. There is a patio which we have enjoyed at a different seating.
