    We ate at the Cedar Street Grille on Friday, August 15, 2014. We're glad we made a reservation as the restaurant was full. We had not been to this restaurant and the meal was very, very good. From the moment we ordered our cocktails, we know we were in for something special. The salads were delicious, the entrées were cooked to perfection and the desserts top off a wonderful meal. If you are looking for a restaurant with a “little extra” we’d encourage you to try the Cedar Street Grille in Sturbridge, MA. We will be back.

    I just can't get enough of this place.. Great food, great drinks! They still don't realize how much they are going to sell out of their catch of the day. In the last 5 times we have been here they are always out for our 8pm reservation. This time it was a Thursday night and still packed as ever. This time they said they would make us the catch however we wanted it they just couldn't serve it in the preseasoned kabobs. They were out of the pork too so they offered us free desert. It happened to be my birthday so we gladly accepted and the filet was cooked perfect. No matter what happens this place can do no wrong in my eyes. You're still the one!

    On our way to Maine, we needed a dinner spot and chose Cedar Street Grille based on Open Table's diners' recommendations. We were delighted to discover this wonderful eatery and plan to return as soon as we have a reason to head toward Sturbridge again. We live in Greater Hartford, so this is an hour's drive for us, but well worth it. The fried chicken, which my husband ordered, was outstanding, and I plan to order it next time we go even though my fish dish was superb. Vegetables were perfectly cooked, and the entire meal was delicious. The service was excellent--just the right level of attentiveness and privacy--and although we were too satiated to order dessert, I might just have to leave room for it next time we go.

    The menu continues to be interesting and varied, and almost every dish is a great success. Ordering several small plates makes for different delicious experiences. And the desserts are outstanding. If the restaurant served bread (and olive oil), the excellent meal would be even better.

    Our visit to Cedar Street was very good, attentive service and out meals were outstanding. I had never tried the buttermilk fried chicken and rarely order chicken when dining out. It was very good and well worth trying. I sampled a couple of pints of Newburyport Brewing Company beer and found it to be a nice quality microbrew.

    My husband and I took friends out to lunch to celebrate their retirement. We were nicely greeted and seated right away. Our server was terrific and knew the restaurant well. She left us to chat, but knew when to come back for our order. We started with a bottle of the house Cabernet and the shrimp scampi small plate. Both were EXCELLENT! Our Buffalo Chicken wraps, Monte Cristo sandwich and house "BLT" sandwich were all wonderful. It was the perfect place to celebrate for good friends. This restaurant is a new favorite!!

    The food and atmosphere were terrific. Our only complaints were having to wait for 30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, then waiting another 15 minutes for a server to arrive. The server did not seem very interested and had to be prompted to give the specials. After hearing the server at the table next to ours, we realized that we did not even hear all of the specials. We would still try it again (the food was that good), but hope that the service improves.

    Soup great. Unfortunately there was something in my goats cheese ravioli that was not cheese. Not even a vegetable either. So I could not finish it. The server told us it was not prepared on site so what was it. I dread to think! I am allergic to seafood so that was my worry. Thankfully I was alright but certainly think you should enquire as to how this is made and whether you wish to continue to serve it

    We ordered a variety of small plates and salads, which made for a nice meal. Loved the stuffed figs, although we could barely taste the goat cheese. Lamb tacos were fine, but not as flavorful as hoped. Salads were good size and interesting; mine was loaded with candied pecans. Sliders were good as we're the scallops. Noise level was high!

    Service is always outstanding here and the food is great. Last Sunday we came for brunch and I made a point of asking our waitress if the special curried pork hash on the menu had onions, since I really dislike them. She assured me that it didn't and that she doesn't like them herself. With my first bite I was not thrilled as I could taste onion, although it was subtle; then behind us I heard every other waitress describe it as having caramelized onions! I did manage to eat some but I wasn't too thrilled. However, the eggs were poached perfectly and my husband's jalapeno mac & cheese was delicious. Coffee is wonderful too and sourdough toast is delicious. Just a glitch and we will be back.

    Cedar Street Grille was recommended to us by a friend. Although it is 45 min from our home, it was worth the drive. We found it to be very relaxing, friendly, and professional. My wife had the salmon, which she said was excellent and I had the Lamb Shank which was done to perfection. Overall, it was an outstanding dining experience. We will not hesitate to recommend Cedar Street Grille to our friends. Needless to sasy, we will be back.

    We have visited Cedar Street a number of times. On this visit, the restaurant and bar were very busy, and the service initially was impacted, taking 15 minutes to get a drink. The noise level was a bit higher than on our prior visits. Our meals were excellent. I had the Wahoo special and my partner had the filet. Both were very good.

    Love this place - had been for brunch last fall and decided to try it for lunch with a girlfriend. They were very accommodating as she wanted pasta instead of fries with the garlic shrimp, and they had no problem changing it. I ordered the garlic shrimp with the fries and it was wonderful. You only get three shrimp, but it's lunch so you don't need a huge portion. The fries were crispy and delicious. We both had tea; their selection is great and the tea they use is one of the best (Mighty Leaf). I can't wait to go back.

    Service was great, but food was not good. I guess ,I am not use to having blue cheese in my Mac and cheese. People assume these plates are made with traditional ingredients just to find out it's not what they expected. High class food is not comfort food sprinkled with expensive ingredients. Disappointed I will not be back.

    I was so looking forward to dining at Cedar Street Grill after reading many reviews. We made reservation for a table of two at 5:30. Were seated right next to the kitchen door. A vent under the table was blowing cold air. We asked for another table and the waitress put a menu over the vent. The server never introduced herself so we never could ask for her by name. The ceaser salad was more like a chopped salad and was very dry. The fish special had no flavor and was overcooked. The scallops were undercooked, not seared at all. The waitress seemed like she was stressed and not into making our night special at all. We will be going back to Rovezzi's.

    We selected this restaurant without knowing anything about it because it was midway between us and a good location. We were pleasantly surprised at the excellent tapas we had and all in all, a great restaurant. I would not hesitate to return and I would highly recommend it. It was casual, yet with excellent food and wine. And to top it all off, the service was great!
