Martini was not only NOT 'very dry' -- it was watered down; crabcake was so burnt on the bottom I had trouble cutting it; we requested shared appetizers -- no sharing provided, had to ask for a plate; then only one plate laid on the table and we had to split it up ourselves. Ceci's nothing like it used to be. To make matters worse, we were there at a quiet time (only three or four other tables in use). They won't see us or our friends again.

We came into the city for a show and were running late due to holiday traffic. The staff had no problem still accommodating us, but our waiter even talked with the chef to get our meals out as quickly as possible. All of our meals (pasta based to keep it quick) were delicious and we were in and out in 45 minutes. Perfect timing to still get to the show on time. We all want to come back for another meal where we can actually take our time to enjoy it!

7 out of 12 out there early & they didn't want to sest us. Which would have made you more money. People would have ordered drinks. They sat us downstairs with the A/C on. The waiter was terrible. He never came around to see if we wanted more drinks. Getting the dinner was slow & the portions were small.

Quiet with warm lighting made for an excellent dining opportunity at Ceci. Food was well-prepared and those with gluten allergies were given due attention. Unfortunately, we were given limited attention from wait staff and our meals took a full hour from the time they were placed to the time they hit our table - and the house was not overly busy. Seated on an aisle and under a wall decoration that one would hit every time you stood made for an awkward position where you were constantly nudged without so much as an "excuse me". I wouldn't base every experience on this. In fact, our previous visits were not so problematic. I wouldn't even include some of these less than stellar remarks but when you're paying over $100 for a modest night out for two (entrees and 2 glasses of house wine), it should hit most of the right notes. We would try the folks at Ceci again, though. It seemed like perhaps a bad combination of events.

Third visit and have not had a mediocre meal. Reservation easily made and confirmed through OpenTable for 7 people.
Food all together was nicely presented, prompt and delicious.
The only comment I can make is the mandatory 20% tip included in the tab which is understandable for a party of 7, but then the check is presented with another line for 'tip' before you sign it. Why?

Atmosphere at restaurant was friendly and very good service. We were with friends and we were not rushed as many places in the theatre district tend to do. Especially delicious and different were the appetizers. This was our second visit to Ceci and my entree of seafood risotto was disappointingly chewy and bland.

We were in NYC for a 8pm show at Carnegie Hall, and had a reservation for a group of 14. When I made the reservation, I explained we would have to be at Carnegie Hall for an 8pm performance. The person on the phone recommended doing the reservation for 5pm, not 5:30, and they would make it their goal to have us out of there by 7pm. It was only a 15 min walk to the theater, but this way, he said, we wouldn't have to rush and could stop to see some sights along the way, too! When we arrived, we were seated downstairs in their "party room" - it had two long tables, and one was set up for our group. Waiter Diego was very attentive, the food was delicious (not huge portions, but expertly prepared) and as we were also planning on celebrating my 10yr old niece's birthday, after dinner he brought out a big bowl of ice cream for her with a candle in it. We started singing happy birthday, and all the folks at the other table joined in! It was really special - gotta love New Yorkers! Even with all that, we still were finishing up by 6:45, and were heading to the theater by 7pm - great job, Ceci's!

We have been here and reviewed Ceci many times. As we have said before, anytime we are on the east side of Broadway we choose Ceci. The staff is warm and welcoming and the kitchen produces wonderful classic Italian food that comes out hot when it's supposed to be and cold when it's supposed to be. The bar is most competent and the choice of wine and hard liquor is large. Dessert and coffee choices are wonderful.
If you are looking for a lovely place to enjoy terrific food and drink (before or after theater-ask about the RoundAbout at the Laura Pels Theater discount-bring your tickets) while creating warm memories with friends, try Ceci!
Enjoy.

What a wonderful find! In NYC on December 19th to see the Christmas Spectacular with a group of eight. A short walk from Radio City Music Hall with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Ceci was the perfect spot for us. I was able to call ahead and make a reservation, we were seated immediately, and they had something for everyone, including gluten free! All of the staff from waitstaff to management were very attentive and accommodating. The food was traditional Italian, delicious and plentiful. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on December 19, 2017

I had the vegetable risotto and it was disappointing. Tasted like reheated frozen vegetables and bland rice-no seasonings. The portion sizes of the other diners in my party was very small. Two diners had lobster ravioli and there were only 6 small raviolis on each plate. One dinner had spaghetti with tomato sauce and had a lot of noodles with very little sauce. No fresh Parmesan was offered to any of us. The waitress made very few stops by our table and the glasses of overpriced wine were smaller than average. The average price of our meals was around $25 each. This was way too much for what we received.

We were there for our anniversary. Went last year and I had the sea bass - it was great. This year we both ordered the sea bass and it was terrible. The mussels and clams were uneatable, there was a spoonful of sauce. Unappetizing. And this for $35? No way. I refused to pay. We had had a salad and one glass of wine. The salad was tasteless. The manager did not charge us for anything. That was at least the good part.
How a kitchen can send out plates that looked like that, I will never know. Never going back. Terrible.
And in a gluten free restaurant, I do not understand charging $3 extra a plate for a gluten free dish, even though it is the same dish offered to people who eat gluten? These dishes are no different! Rip off.

We went to CeCi's for lunch and it was outstanding. The food and service was terrific and we will be going there again when we go back to NYC. We have also recommended it to everyone we told about our trip. My wife has to eat Gluten Free and she had so many choices to choose from and could eat like a normal person. She raved about her dish as well.
