Ceia Kitchen and Bar
A lovely mealWe went for Mother's Day Brunch, and everyone at the table had a lovely time. The food was inventive and excellently prepared (especially the steak and lobster benedict, a big hit at our table), and our waitress was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxed and casual, but still nice enough to be appropriate for a celebration lunch or a special night out. We will definitely be returning.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first time weThis was the first time we dined at Ceia. We enjoyed it very much! Both the food and service were wonderful. I would not hesitate to return!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than most in BostonThis restaurant is my wife and I's favorite in the Northshore and one of our favorite in New England. We lived in the SOuth End for many years and that is the mecca of fine food in Boston and Ceia could stand up to any there and probably win! We feel lucky to have this gem outside the city!!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCeia is the spot.My girlfriend and I trekked to Ceia this past weekend from outside Boston, and it was COMPLETELY worth the trip. The 3 story restaurant is one of the best I've been to. The entire staff was so helpful and friendly. And the food was to die for, the whole drive back to Newton we were whining about how we wish the meal had never ended. We started with drinks and some appetizers, the St. Avion was amazing, and the duck liver mousse, olives and charcuterie was enough to make us come back and we hadn't even ordered our mains yet. We ordered the Hake and the Scallops and they were cooked perfectly, and looked amazing. We are counting down the days till we go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful decor, delicious fareWe really enjoyed our dinner there, beautiful atmosphere, friendly service and food was all delicious and plated artistically

Out of town friends loved the distinctive menu with its diversity and seasonsal choices.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like trying different foodsThis is the place for you. The server was great and knew her food. Let them guide you through the Cheese and Charcuterie
selections unless you know your Tapas. We grazed and enjoyed her suggestions. We ordered the special Spring pasta to share. Too small to share for 3. It was the freshest of ingredients, and delicious. The fritters were light and again singing with spring flavors. Runner beans were ok, a bit too hard. Great first time experience!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCeia is awesome!! The foodCeia is awesome!! The food is phenomenal.

I would definitely go back to this restaurant and recommend to friends. Good for nights out with friends, birthday dinners, gets a little tight so not so sure about larger parties. DEFINITELY make a reservation, they had an hour wait without one. Overall delicious and a great time!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMwas very pleased to have ourwas very pleased to have our requested seat granted! server was knowledgeable friendly, efficient and attentive without being over bearing.

Loved the wine list and eclectic menu offerings.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm, inviting and delicious!We went on a rainy Tuesday night (and unfortunately they weren't offering their price fixe menu, not sure why, we forgot to ask) and the place wasn't very full, so I can't say what it would be like on a weekend night, but the food was excellent, the service great, we had a great waiter who let us take our time and the ambiance romantic. Nice brick walls, warm tones and soft lighting with great jazz playing in the background. The restaurant is spread between three floors making each dining room cozy and intimate. I would definitely go back.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
