Nice bar, outside dining and menu. Have eaten here for lunch & evening dinner. So much potential if promoted, lovely setting, nice outside dining for lunch, nice booths for evening dinner. Clean fresh bar.

Food was very good, but the service was disappointing. I have never come across something quite like that. The waitress supposedly has been doing this for well over a decade yet acted as if she'd never served a day in her life. Full of excuses and just strange behavior. Bad day? I don't know. Left me very confused. Not sure I would go back and that is very unfortunate because food was really good.

We had breakfast. The food was great and the staff was courteous and friendly. We wish they had outdoor dining for breakfast.

Service was a bit slow at arrival though the dining room was fairly empty. The patio was full and there was live music. The doors were open so we could hear well enough without being overwhelmed. Both of our meals were quite well prepared and presented. One area of improvement would be the wait/Service staff, just seemed inexperienced for an upscale establishment.

This has been a favorite for many years and it never disappoints.

It was a beautiful day to sit outside . Waitress was great. Just about the right pace for us.
They were accommodating to change some of the preparation due to allergies.
Not busy at lunch time on a Monday. The beet salad with the chicken on the side was nice for lunch.

What a great place! We couldn't even tell that we were in the heart of Worcester. The view and ambience from the outdoor site is great. We went during their Music Series that is on Wed and Thursday nights from 6:00-9:00. Food was great but the service was even better. They were so helpful and friendly!

I don't know. While it wasn't awful, it didn't dazzle either. Ambiance was lovely, but the food only ok for me. It seemed for the prices one might expect more. It was an okay experience.

Ceres is usually very good however the food was served cold and they were empty at the time?

A group of three friends meeting on a hot day to enjoy the patio- we were all surprised by the complete lack of seasonality on the menu. It was 94 degrees and there were no chilled soups; we at least expected gazpacho. The soup offering was italian wedding soup! Sandwich selections were also "heavy" for the season and salads were uninspired. Patio was pretty though..,
