It was our daughter’s birthday which I indicated on the reservation when I confirmed on the phone and when we arrived to check in. No acknowledgement of the day. The year before a group of wait staff sang and she had a small cake and a candle etc. otherwise everything was great

See all my previous reviews to know how wonderful Ceci's has always been and more than likely will always be since it is owned and run by members of a previous restaurant. Food, service, greetings and ambiance are most often great. This visit however, there was one large table of nine that must have put earplugs in their ears before coming in and then raised their voices to talk with one another to compensate.
I'm glad I had my drinks!
Next time will be like last time, not this time. Enjoy you visits. 99.99999% of them will be GREAT!

Food was fresh, attractive plated and delicious. I enjoyed the beet salad , my mother had the salad with roasted shrimp and lobster ravioli which she enjoyed . The calamari was crispy and not at all greasy- so delicious. Service was prompt courteous and not over bearing. It was a lovely before theatre lunch

Sea bass with mussels clams cream sauce under seasoned and fish - either wasn’t sea bass or undercooked. Salad with artichoke hearts, arugula, sun dried tomatoes ok. Super Tuscan not super.

We had a bad experience eating here. Stood at the door and were ignored for over 5 minutes on arrival. Sat in a table crammed against the wall near the wait station and bar. The bathroom is disgusting including a reeking urinal. The food was okay but expensive for what it is. I cannot recommend this place. When I left a bad review of them on Yelp, they posted a reply asking me to come back, but I will never go back. It's just not worth it.

Dinner following a matinee show on Broadway. The restaurant is long and narrow but has a nice feel. Nice atmosphere and a moderate noise level. The food was tasty and good sized portions. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I took a shot based on the reviews and I was pleasantly surprised. I’d definitely go back.

He food was amazing and the service was as good as I have experienced in a long time. The ambiance is intimate. My only criticism is they do no allow sharing of plates. We left a lot of food at the restaurant and bought more than we could eat. I hate to see food go to waste.

Party of 11. Cozy place. Ambiance OK. Big portions. Pretty delicious all across, from apps to appetizers. Cheap for Manhattan. Server didn't speak English well. Somewhat slow service, zero sense of that special treatment usually given to a big group taking up half of the entire restaurant. Overall decent, good value, not anything special.

Enjoyed dinner at Ceci’s before a show on Saturday night. Food was delicious especially the lobster ravioli and the rigatoni pollo. Our second visit here did not disappoint. Be sure to make a reservation because the restaurant was very busy and small but we walked in and were seated right away. We will be back.

I was very skeptical to try this place brining my itailian grandmother and mother who are picky when it comes to food . They both loved it the food was great the wine list needed a little work and the server seemed like she wasn’t happy to have a job my grandma kept making jokes and she just starred at us with no response. For food and location definitely worth it since you can never get into Carmine’s
