My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here lately, and the food was great as usual, the wine list interesting (by the glass or bottle) and changes every so often which I like. The service was attentive but non-intrusive. Their celebrated coconut cake was terrific, and a real -size cappucino hit the spot for dessert. Thanks CCI for a wonderful anniversary evening! Cheers!

The waitress took 45 minutes to take our order. She seemed to have too many tables and not enough help. She seemed stressed and not very friendly. It definitely affected our experience.

We had been there over 20 times - worst experience ever - horrible food we sent three plates back.

The chef must had an issue.

Waito Angel didn't bring butter with toast and was surprise when asked.

Is there a change in ownership or something?

I have been going to Cedar Creek since they opened. I was really hoping that when it was recently purchased by new owners they would keep the same quality. The portions have gotten smaller and the prices have increased. It is also very uncomfortable to dine as they keep the restaurant very warm, no air flow.
This was my favorite go to, but I am now reassessing.

When we arrived for our 3:45 reservation around 3:35, the receptionist told us that they won’t be seating until 4 since they are in between lunch and dinner service. When I told her we had a confirmed open table reservation for 3:45, she said we should have received an email that they weren’t seating until 4. I went back and checked and saw that this was sent at 3:21. She offered no apology whatsoever.

Luckily, the wonderful waitress and the good food made up for her rudeness.

We had a delightful experience at the Cedar Creek in on Easter Sunday. I think our waiter, Shelly, was probably one of the best servers we have ever had anywhere. We were very well attended to, the champagne was endless, the ambience was great, we all enjoyed our choices immensely. Couldn’t ask for anything more! Very satisfied ...:

This is a favorite restaurant. However, on our last visit we were never asked if we wanted more water, even though glasses were empty. I also did not like being constantly addressed as hun, honey, and sweetheart by waitress. Going back tonight for the seafood fettuccini which is always amazing!

This trip to Cedar Creek was like my last, I ordered the salmon cooked medium with a side of green beans and mashed potatoes. The cook is always right on when cooking my salmon perfectly! The three gentlemen I was with cleaned their plates and we all ordered something different. I have always had a delicious meal here with good company and good service.

Love this restaurant and frequent it often. Today's lunch experience was great as always. The calimari appetizer is fabulous and the orange roughy lunch special was superb. The ambiance is wonderful with a dining room that has low noise level where adults can have quiet conversation without any screaming or running around kids! Highly recommend this restaurant for lunch, dinner or special holidays.

Always enjoy my experience at Ceder Creek.
This time I made my reservation via Open Table and they claimed to have
no notification of it. I did however have my printed confirmation and the
Hostess gave us a table ( she didn't really seem to happy to do so ).
Other than that experience fine.

It was an enjoyable dinner. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that noted when placing the reservation that it was for a birthday. There was no acknowledgment. I did not personally inform the server. I was under the impression it would be addressed since when making the reservation on open table, it asks...
Other than that food was delicious!

as always, superb. I do miss the nut bread baskets you used to put on the table some years ago. I used to buy some to take home. we usually come her when we want a really good meal. a little pricey but good food and service is excellent. I have always loved the open wood construction, so well appointed and the rest of the building matches the builders intent.

I'm not vegetarian but I wanted a lighter, smaller meal. This was my first visit to Cedar Creek. The stuffed portabello mushroom was the best I've ever tasted. And the quinoa and kale salad was fabulous. This was an unexpected surprise and I will definitely have it again.

Our server was awesome.
Our group hasn't met in almost 20 years and our server made our experience great.
There was no rushing us during the lunch hour.
She was exceptional as I spoke to her away from the table to pick up the check for my old friends and she completely understood what I wanted to do.
I expect to bring more friends back here.

After many years of dinners and special occasions here, I have seen a decline in quality of
food and experience over the last year.. We had a party of four for a birthday celebration
and spent $200.00 with you for the evening... When we walked in for dinner it was extremely warm and stuffy. The service was fine but the food was, so so... We had to return the beef rib because of the toughness of the meat. (A replacement was out to us in a few minutes) We requested the air to be turned on and instantly noted when the A/C went on. It was on for five minutes or so went off and never came back on.... We would have stayed longer and had after dinner beverages but it was to uncomfortable... I am sorry to leave this review but felt it was
necessary.

Had a wonderful meal at Cedar Creek. It was restaurant week and the menu was varied and a great value. Food was excellent, including the dessert. Our server, Rebecca, was outstanding. Very professional, very attentive and genuinely a very nice and friendly individual. Our party of four, all had different meals and all were very delicious. We all had a great time.
