We had reservations through Open Table for 7pm. When we arrived unfortunately they didn’t have our reservation, but despite being packed, they managed to get us in. Our server was wonderful and went out of her way to serve us well. We had visited Cerulean several years ago and remembered it to be fabulous. Our memory served us well as the second time did not disappoint! We will make an effort to return more often!
My husband and I have been frequenting Cerulean since we moved to north central Indiana and have always had impeccable service and exquisite food. Last night, my husband and I made reservations to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. We were greeted and seated in a quiet corner with a complimentary glass of champagne each. What a lovely touch! Many of the staff stopped by our table to congratulate us on our anniversary. We felt special. The food was delicious, as always. And then...about halfway through our dining experience when we received our entrees, our server disappeared. We did not see him for at least 20 minutes. We were both out of beverages. It was impossible to get someone to stop by our table because no one just passed by since we were tucked into the corner. Finally I sought out another server and asked her to have our server come over. About 5 minutes later he finally showed up. We asked for the check and then left. I wish that poor service had not ruined our dining experience, but it definitely did. We couldn’t finish our food because we ran out of something to drink. And we definitely did not want to stay for dessert after being ignored for 25+ minutes. Very disappointed.
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Great dining experience.
Service was slow but the food was outstanding. Glad they brought some of the old menu back.
Oh my goodness. This was our best dining experience in the Warsaw area in the past 12 years. The food was glorious, the dining room was spotless, the service spectacular. The only complaint was that the music did get a little louder as the evening progressed. Notch it down just a slightest amount in the dining area and it would have been 5 stars all the way.
My wife and I have eaten at Cerulean many times and have always had a great experience. Our dinner last Saturday was no exception. Our sushi was excellent. Our server was excellent. We will definitely be back.
This restaurant has a great potential but every single dish was way too salty.
Love the new menu but also am such a fan of the Bento Box! The healthy food options are superb! Thank you!
Great place for a delicious lunch. So many unique choices.
Great place for a business lunch! The Bento boxes are the perfect amount of food.
We love Cerulean. Every time we visit...it is just fantastic!
Excellent food and good service. Table was ready at expected reservation time, staff very friendly. Food, as always was excellently prepared, and very flavorful.
We got seated for our reservation early. We waited 15 minutes for a server to come and take drink orders. The restaurant was not busy. The manger was very apologetic and gave us a free appetizer of edamame. Very kind and unasked for, but very appreciated. This was only my second visit and I will definitely be back but it did turn me off just a bit that we were passed by wait staff multiple times within the 15 mins and no one noticed that we had not been helped.
My husband and I made our reservation for dinner for New Year's Eve online through Open Table and enjoyed the four course tasting menu with wine pairings. Overall, the food was amazing....if we had to get VERY particular, my husband did not care for the smoked flavor of the broccoli served with the scallops and I felt the short ribs were a bit too salty but we loved the menu and the pairings! Our waitress, Jen, was very helpful and knowledgeable, making our experience positively wonderful. We've dined with you three or four times and will continue to do so and bring friends!
Very nice evening… Service was great… Food was excellent…
Excellent food and very friendly service the dessert was comped because they didn't think the service was prompt enough...we felt the service was very quick...but we accepted the dessert.
Awesome place to eat and connect with friends!
Very enjoyable dinner w friends. Good service. Good food Bento boxes excellent w lots of variety and very generous portions.
This is the best restaurant in Warsaw/Winona Lake.
Awesome food, amazing service. I love this place. The staff is very friendly and the food never lets me down.
There was no tea with caffeine. Kind of a bummer but everything else was good.
Cerulean is a nice change of pace from a typical restaurant. They have a very interesting menu, ranging from newly introduced entrees, starters, sushi and the Bento boxes. The food is good and a nice presentation. The wine list is adequate, offering a nice range of wine by the glass. Service is good. My husband and I recently had a mid-week dinner at Cerulean and it was very enjoyable. The only complaint we had was that my entree was brought to the table about 5 minutes before my husband was served his. He told me to go ahead and eat but him having to wait while I ate was a little awkward. All people at the table should be served at the same time and an experienced cook and wait staff should be able to coordinate this.
We had an excellent dinner Saturday night with my wife and daughter. We will definitely be back.
Loved the food, our waiter was great. Not good for conversation, very loud.
For some reason Cerulean has lost its charm
I met some friends, who had never been to Cerulean, for lunch. We all enjoyed everything about the restaurant and our meal.
Food has been better and consistency isn’t great there. It’s supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Warsaw, but it’s not that great.
We were seated for our 630pm reservation immediately upon arrival. Dylan was our server, and had a great and friendly personality. He gave a heads up that if we wanted sushi, there was a bit of a wait as a large party was in attendance and all were ordering sushi. We ordered 4 rolls, the cheese board and drinks. The drinks and cheese board came out quickly, and the rolls came out in what I would consider normal time even after the warning. Everything was appealing aesthetically and in taste.
The only nitpicky downside at all was that it was stiflingly warm in the restaurant when we arrived at 630, and only got warmer as more folks came. By the end of our meal, our whole party was visibly sweating. We did not raise the issue with anyone on staff, so I can't really complain. Could have just been a furnace issue that day. Not an overly big deal.
We enjoyed it so much. Very personal and lots of nice touches. Food was exceptional for the price.
I ordered the Panko chicken, which I've ordered many times in the past, but this time it was like McDonalds McNuggets!!! I brought 2 of the three pieces home so my husband could give me his opinion. He agreed, the chicken was tough and the coating was not the same. Also the beer cheese soup was VERY salty, which I brought to the attention of our server.
I always bring my out of town guests to Cerulean, but I will think twice the next time.
The food was great. Some of it I've never tried, and some of it was the classics done well. I've never had such a good garlic aioli. Thanks for the wonderful anniversary dinner!
Excellent food and excellent service. Sushi and ramen were delicious.
We were celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday. The staff were very accommodating and willing to help us make it a great surprise! It was a great way to celebrate!
Jamie, Glad to hear you had a great visit. Thanks for choosing us!
The trip from Fort Wayne to Winona Lake is always worth it when I include a lunch stop at Cerulean. The food and service were excellent, as always. My only minor complaint was the table of loud guests who were seated near us.
Always enjoy dining here!
Delicious food! Fantastic server!
Bento boxes are the bomb! Love having so many choices for the sides to accompany the main entree course. Cheese board is highly recommended and great for 4 people to share. Looking forward to our next meal there!
Cerulean has a wonderful atmosphere, great service, and excellent food. Highly recommend it!
It was my first date and everyone was really helpful at the restaurant.
Terrific food, it just took a long time to get, and it wasn’t crowded at all. I would still definitely go back.
