Our party of 4 had a wonderful
Our party of 4 had a wonderful night at Ceres Bistro. Our charcutie appetizer was delicious with a nice selection of cheeses and meats. All of us were satisfied with our salads which they were kind enough to split for us and our entrees all got thumbs up. The bread basket came warm and the crust had that hard to find nice crunch to it! The outstanding element to our dining experience was our waitress Christine. She had a warmth about her, you could tell she wanted to make our experience pleasureable and she was personable with a lovely smile.

I celebrated my 15th anniversay and absolutely loved the restaurant, ambiance, food and staff. The staff was very knowledgable of the wine list. We'll definitely will be going back to try the brunch

A perfect evening!
Our group (6)had a wonderful dinner mid-week.I had made a resevation so that we would be seated in one of the large oval booths. I was surprised that the restaurant was as busy as it was - and a bit noisy, in a good way (I have been at the restaurant at lunchtime when it was busy and it was very quiet). At any rate, we all selected different appetizers and entrees and noone was disappointed. When asked what were her favorite desserts, our waitress suggested the chocolate pate and a warm toffee pudding. We ordered one of each to share - and swooned! we could not choose one over the other.
The staff were all pleasant and attentive. We had a memorable evening.

Cere's is one of the best places in Worcester. It never fails to deliver great food and atmosphere. On the particular night we were there, the service was a little slow but good, nonetheless. Great place for a first date or special occassion.

Superb patio dining for lunch
A WONDERFUL place to dine on the patio; no traffic, tables set nicely apart, pretty landscaping. The food was very fresh, flavorful, and nicely presented. A few negatives, the lunch menu is a bit short on selection and surprisingly the lunch salads offered are priced like a meal but are sized like a side salad. In addition, this is the only place we have found in the area that charges full price for refills of iced tea so in the future we will be sure to drink to the bottom before letting the server take the glass to refill.

What a wonderful dining experience for my group as we celebrated a very special occasion. The service was perfect. Even having the owner of the hotel stoping by our table, as he did many others , just to say hello was an added treat for my guest.
The food was perfect. One of my guest commented that we always thought we had to go to Boston to have a 5 star evening... not anymore.
Thank you to the Beechwood and staff of Ceres.

service overwhelmed due to large parties, so not as attentive,
but food was great, way better than the hot spots on Shrewsbury street
go there give it a try !!
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just the best...
Although, I am not new to the Beechwood it is always a great time when we dine out at Ceres. This time we brought a friend who was here from out of town... she loved it which made us feel so good.
Service was wonderful, food perfect, and we can't wait to come back again.

what a surprise
My husband worked in Worcester many years ago and still has a soft spot for the city; were we surprised by the change and growth of the area where Ceres is located! Amazing. We did not expect to find such a cool, urban type restaurant in the midst of hospitals and healthcare centers; it's a little oasis. The food is delicious and well served. Finding real grass fed beef is very rare, as what's served under that headline is for the most part beef that has been raised in regions that are covered by snow and need hay to make up for the absence of real grass. Our guests appreciated having the choice of different types of beef and being able to compare. We will be back.

This place was very cozy and
This place was very cozy and romantic. My fiancé and I took both our parents their for Mother's Day, my parents are from Europe and hers are Asian, the menu is complex but the waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful with not only the food but also the wine. The cheese and meat platter with truffle honey was amazing, and my veal chop was cooked perfect! The menu is pricey, but I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a place to go for special occasions, the outdoor patio is beautiful and the live band makes for a great after dinner drink atmosphere.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you need a place that won't let you down for a special occasion this is a good spot. Service is always right on and the food is close to top notch mostly.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Like I said I was pleasantly surprised how good everything was. We were expecting a very crazy busy restaurant as it was Mothers Day, but it went so smooth and the food was delicious. Definitely will be going back here very soon. Will try a Saturday night next time.

Five Star evening
Thank you for making a special family evening just that much better. Service, food, and atmosphere is perfect.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hard to find great outside dining and this place takes the cake! Ate light, salads and pizza, burgers, with a large group. Could be as loud and rowdy as we wanted. I truly have not seen such a beautiful outdoor dining area.

Good wine list and appetizers
Highly recommend Ceres for drinks and appetizers. Service is very accommodating.
6/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice outside!
Great spot to sit outside on a spring night. The heaters are great. Good wine list and interesting menu.
6/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Despite the downpour we still enjoyed our experience at Ceres Bistro, although we were looking forward to dining outdoors before our show at the Hanover Theatre. We began with one of our favorite drinks, the Cere's Manhattan made with corn whiskey, served with warm bread. Our group next had a delicious iceberg wedge salad and a jumbo shrimp cocktail with 6 large shrimp. Entrees included an awesome herb crusted rack of lamb and the Farro risotto and lobster both prepared to perfection and accompanied a nice Kings Estate Pinot Noir. We topped off the meal be splitting the warm sticky toffee pudding! A great start to the evening.

Our new favorite restaurant
We joined another couple for an excellent meal. There were many interesting items on the menu. We dislike restaurants that are so noisy that we can't enjoy a conversation, and Ceres was quiet and felt very private although there were other diners nearby. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the selections on the menu. The service was perfect as our waiter was attentive to our needs without hanging over our shoulders. We'll be looking for another reason to go there.

A Perfect Evening
This restaurant has it all, good food, great service and perfect ambiance. I had the swordfish which was a treat to eat as it is perfectly paired with a mango salsa and fresh vegetables. I had oysters on the half shell to start which were fresh and delicious. My husband had the bouillabaisse and was very pleased with his selection. We ate on the patio which made the evening; outdoor dinning is my absoulote favorite.

Great bar scene for after-work
Great bar scene for after-work drinks and apps which are delish. The flatbread pizza is enough for a meal and it is only $5.00!
Will go again.

Nice relaxed atmosphere, love
Nice relaxed atmosphere, love their filtered water and sparkling water. One steak wasn't so wonderful so they graciously brought a second. It was a bit underdone for the diner but generally good tasting. Appetizers are unique and fresh and the bread is hot and crusty. Very friendly and attentive staff
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best place in Worcester
My fiance and I go out all the time and One Eleven used to be my favorite. But after visiting Ceres a few times, this place is my new favorite place. The food is amazing and the menu changes, so it's like going to a new restaurant, but you know it's going to be amazing. Awesome Wine list, great service, and atmosphere.

Brunch at ceres bistro
Nice and relaxing alot to choose from they have a crepe station and carving station lunch and dinner and breakfast choices and includes I drink too mimosa Bloody Mary or champane
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ceres has a lovely outdoor dining "room" and you fee like you are on vacation when dining there. The food is thoughtful and delicious, the service professional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food and the bonus is the setting.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We visited the Ceres Bistro for the sunday brunch as a special event for our 40th anniversary. It was delightful and enjoyable. Food was excellent.

Ceres Bistro at the Beechwood Hotel
I think Ceres Bistro is the nicest restaurants in Worcester. The meals are excellent, the restaurant is not too noisy, which is a problem at most Worcester restaurants, and I like the ambience. Our last visit happened to be during Restaurant Week and the 3-course meal was delicious. There were 3 of us dining and we chose the 3 dinners offered and all of us were very happy with our choices. The regular menu is a little pricier than most Worcester restaurants but well worth it for the food, ambience and low noise level. I hate noisy restaurants. Also the bar is very attractive with the lighted surface.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every once in a while you go to a restaurant and have a great meal. Saturday night at Ceres Bistro was one of those times. I eat out a lot and so when a restaurant stands out it must be doing something great. We ate outside on a beautiful night, were seated promptly, and had a wonderful waitress. The food was great, tasty, and cooked to perfection. Since it was restaurant week I expected the portions to be smaller but we both still took home what we couldn't finish. My steak was seasoned perfectly and my partners Salmon was cooked just the way she likes it. I thought the highlight was the Calamari which was really superb. I sure I'll be back a lot.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely Recommend Ceres!
I went with coworkers and we had a blast. The food was amazing, the setting was great. It's unbelievable that it is in Worcester. We had a blast!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friend and i met for lunch, sat outside and had a lovely time and excellent meal. server was attentive but still allowed us to talk. Very pleased. thank you
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dependably excellent food. Ambiance outstanding. Service not up to par with previous visits. Soup delivered without spoon followed by a 5 minute wait for one. Dinner delivered without a steak knife and the wait was so long I started trying to cut my steak without one. I had to ask for water and it arrived almost 15 minutes later. Everyone was apologetic, but the problem persisted throughout my dinner.

This restaurant has become one of our favorite place to dine. The food was fabulous and we have always had a great time here. They also have outside dining with music on certain nights. It close to the road, so you may hear some noise from the road that is close. ( The hospital is just around the corner and ambulances may be arriving during your visit).

We went for lunch during restaurant week. We all had items from the special menu and were surprised at the portion size.
Generous portions and delicious.

Review of business lunch at Ceres
Six people attended our lunch meeting at Ceres Bistro. We were placed in a comfortable semi-circular booth in the corner of the restaurant. This was perfect as we wanted to be able to talk in a quiet location. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and very available to us, without being intrusive! Food was great and service was prompt. We'll definitely book other working lunches at Ceres!
8/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Have drinks and appetizers outside!
It's so nice to have a place in Worcester with a nice outdoor area for dinner, drinks and appetizers. The wine list continues to improve and is great.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and laid back.
The waitress was knowledgable and friendly. Service was surprisingly sluggish as almost no one else was there, but the food was delicious and we weren't in a rush. The bar was empty, but very modern and attractive with many interesting drink options. Good to go as a destination or for a special occasion, probably not as part of an evening with other plans.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Limited menu but our meals were very good. Portions are average. Service was slow.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, great steaks
The main reason why we dined here was because of a gift certificate we had and needed to use. The food was excellent and the front of the house was attentive, courteous and professional. They knew the menu and were able to answer any questions. Something you must try is the elder flower spritzer, it was very refreshing and delicious. The steaks we order were cooked to perfection as ordered. Medium rare for one and Medium well for the other. Both steaks were served at the same time so you know that the back or the house has their act straight. We also ordered the salmon. Nicely presented on the plate and I could only say that it must have been excellent, because there was nothing left on the plate. Ceres also has a Gluten Free menu.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, great food, great atmosphere. The grass fed rib eye was to die for. The bouillabaisse looked amazing. Can't wait to go back again.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ceres is a local hidden gem
Hard to find nice romantic restaurants with high quality food, service and ambiance. Similar price level to Sole and 111 but food was better or at least on par. Unlike 111, tables were well spaced, not too loud, bar area is sufficiently separated, and it feels classy. Great spot for date night!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice presentation of food
Our favorite part of the meal was the trio of Sorbet dessert. We were presented with 3 exotic flavors of sorbet, each in a clear glass with fruit in the bottom on a plate of powdered sugar. I also enjoyed my main course of cheese ravioli with greens and scallops in a lemon sauce. The calamari appetizer was cooked to perfection.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Cere's was a very good experience. The food was excellent. The service was knowledgeable on the full menu. The wine list was strong. We will recommend to our friends.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful as always
Always reliable, dinner was flavorful and the service professional.

Worcester's cozy eatery
Here's a place with good food and drink located in a nice hotel in Worcester. Staff is good, though a little slow at times, but knowledgable and friendly. Wide selection of good choices for a picky eaters, and the wine list provides variety. Enjoy!

NIce for Special Dinner
Well lit attractive dining room. Prompt greeting at door, and quickly taken to table. Service friendly and knowledgeable. Menu is just the right size in terms of choices. Tried appetizers of calamari and mussels - both were excellently prepared. Entrees were veal chop which was very good, with whipped potatoes that were among the best we have ever had; and the game special a buffalo hanger steak - prepared medium rare - very good flavor, and very lean.
We skipped dessert - but the ones we saw being brought out to other tables looked nice.
Overall pace of dinner was very relaxed (we spent about 2 hours, taking time to enjoy the food and talking. Most of the time when we dine out, we are done in 1 hour).
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome has a price but its worthy
From the beginning to the end this place was great. Wasn't a fan of the tuna app but it was enough to enjoy the wait for dinner over some good drinks. The dinner came out and was outstanding. Rib eye steak for the fiancé and the rack of lamb for myself. Was so good I'm still thinking about it.
The venue was actually aerially nice place as well. Modern feel with lots of lighting was our style and the booth was so comfortable.
To leave A last note I was very impressed and then ended the night at the bar for drink before we headed home.
Will return just not to soon because the price was up there
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Ceres Bistro was fabulous! It was so refreshing and relaxing to have dinner on a Saturday night without having to scream to be able to talk to the others in our party. It was just lovely and the food, service excellent. Portions were large -yet the right size for the price of each entree. Price was high but fitting for this setting. Recommend very highly and look forward to going again. Highly recommend the braised short ribs. This is my favorite dish to get when I go out and it was so delicious!,

Fine dining without Pretension
My friend and I celebrated her 62 birthday with a lovely dinner at Ceres on Saturday evening. The service was attentive without being cloying. We ordered four courses and they were nicely paced - we didn't feel rushed nor ignored. We both had rack of lamb and it was cooked exactly as requested. I was pleased overall and will definitely add Ceres to our list of Worcester favorites for a nice evening.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Menue was spare but well thought out and offered an excellant selection of items to choose from. Everything was beautifully presented and well prepared. A must try place.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of my favorite dining spots. Everything is perfect, from the beautifully displayed food, the attentive service, the gorgeous decor, and the really delicious food. I had the venison and it was outstanding.
