I wished I lived closer to Sturbridge so I could frequent this place more often. Cedar Street Grille holds its own against similar restaurants in the Boston area, where I live. The staff is professional but very friendly. The place is low-key, perhaps showing a little wear and tear around the edges, but extremely welcoming and comfortable. Two outstanding dishes I would recommend are the carrot ginger soup and the crepe brûlée. The soup was first and foremost a carrot soup with the ginger a muted enhancement, in contrast to many such soups I have had where the chefs seem to think that the use of ginger must be aggressive. The crime brûlée was a generous size and lovely in every way.

The brunch menu was small but varied. The service was quite attentive. None of the dishes I tasted was superb, but they were all quite tasty.

Foods slightly over priced and a little pretentious. Obviously a talented chef but tone it down a little and focus on simple flavors.

With a friend I ventured out from our hotel looking for somewhere really special to eat. Cedar Street Grille more than met our expectations. Delightful menu with very tasty food that was not the very day offerings of a good restaurant. We recommended this great place to many the very next day. Five star plus rating!

The mussels were warm tender, sweet and delicious! One of the best I have had.
The mac'n cheese was rich and creamy. Fun presentation in an individual iron fry pan.
Service was a bit slow, but we were meeting friends and in no hurry.

We have been to Cedar Street on and off over the years. The menu changes regularly. We did not order the cheese plate, but have been told by others this is very good. We ordered the lamb meatballs which were plain and a bit disappointing, the mussels were very good, the sliders were recommended by our waitress and were beefy, tasty, satisfying. I am a mac and cheese lover and their variety was very creamy and available with several additions such as truffle, lobster, buffalo, etc. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, as well as the bus staff and hostess. Drinks were very good.

I have dined here before and found the food to be outstanding.
However, during this visit I thought the food was just o.k.
I am hoping it was just an off night. I thought the roast was heated up in the microwave....not at all what it tasted like during my previous visit.

Service was excellent!

I always meet Boston area friends here, and it’s a great spot: delightful servers, good food and booze, nice booths. I forgot that it was school vacation, so there were more children than usual and the noise level was higher than usual, but it was still fine.

We were disappointed with the GF menu. The online menu looked really good, but when we ordered, there were very few options compared to the online menu. My wife and I have a stricked diet for health reasons and were looking forward to a safe new place to eat out. Not that it matters, but we won't be back.

The service was fantastic as well as the food. I do have to comment on a particular young lady that works for you. I feel horrible I didn’t get her name because she was the type of employee we all wish we had (we own our own business). She wasn’t our waitress but she filled our water and brought out our food and always had a smile on her face. She told us she was having fun 😊 I saw her through out the night and she was non stop she never slowed down. She did have red hair if this helps with her identity. You should feel so fortunate to have an employee like her.

My Mom and I meet my sister who lives in CT in Sturbridge for dinners -m we've tried various restaurants - this one was a real find - it was my birthday - our server could not have been nicer, and as professional and elegant as any you might find in Boston or NYC fine dining restaurant. We enjoyed both small plates and normal entrees - the food was delicious, the wine selections were quite nice as were the specialty cocktails. All future dinners will be here!

Food quality was excellent, and prepared exactly as asked. Tables are very close to each other, difficult to have a private conversation. They appeared to be understaffed. Observed our first and second rounds of completed cocktails each sitting on the bar, waiting for delivery. Each round was finally delivered about 10 minutes after preparation. Appetizer was also sitting around before delivery and was not hot.

Just about everything on the menu could be adjusted for gluten free, and wait staff was very knowledgeable in helping me choose items. The only downside was no separate fryer, so nothing fried is safe for celiac or wheat allergies. The gluten free mac & cheese was excellent, rich creamy, definitely not low cal! And the gluten free pasta is cooked in it's own pot of water, so no cross contamination.

We were two couples each driving about an hour to dine (lunch) and catch up after many months w/o seeing each other. The Grille was perfect for that, as it had been a year before. We could hear each other well at our corner table (reserved well in advance), and the food, creative and delicious, was fine from first course to last. Unlikely that you've had mac & cheese like theirs, or burgers or almost anything else. Service too was fine: attentive but not overbearing. We're looking forward to next year's meal there.

Came with family to celebrate my sister's new job - she requested we come here for the food and we weren't disappointed! Side salads were far tastier than your typical boring garden or caesar, lobster gnocci was perfectly cooked, and the sides with the roast for two (mashed potatoes and garlic green beans) were divine. We asked if a summer cocktail could be recreated and the bar set us up! Everyone loved the various drinks with unique flavor combinations (lavender and gin drinks were a particular hit). Best of all, the great food was complemented by phenomenal service - attentive, but not pushy.

Terrific Chicken Caesar Salad, my date had the Grilled Cheese which she said was very good. A little bit crowded and noisy where we were (a smallish room with tables very close) but this was a holiday season day so crowds were to be expected. And if the rest of the food was as good as ours, then it is no wonder that a lot of people like to eat there.

The place is broken up into several different dining areas. If I had my seating choice I would prefer to be in one of the areas which had a little more room.

Would definitely go back again.
