Cerulean - Winona Lake Ratings and Reviews
While I LOVE Cerulean and am a regular patron, I have had the same server the past two times I've dined over lunch and both times my service was pretty poor. We rarely saw the server and could not have done lunch in our one-hour lunch break. This has actually caused me to question whether or not to continue to make reservations here for anytime I actually need to be back in my office within an hour.
That said, the food was outstanding, as always.
One of the best meals our family has ever had. We started with a fantastic gnocchi starter and an excellent 5-cheese/charcuterie plate. For the entrees, I had a Wagyu beef special that was amazing. My wife and daughter also loved their barbecue lamb and pork porterhouse meals.
Service was great and prices were appropriate for the quality of the food -- our entrees were $28-$33
Fantastic meal and we'll be back
Best restaurant in Warsaw area for lunch. For this visit, food was very good, service was excellent. For improvement recommendations I would say change the music selection. We did like the chocolate treat that replaced the Andes mints. Bottom line is Cerulean is great for lunch.
We looked at the website for a plant-based menu. There were three acceptable choices. When we arrived at the restaurant, there was nothing like that on the menu. However, the staff tried to accommodate us with an adjustment in the standard fare. Also, the portion was so small that we came home, made hot tea, and made our healthy dessert of non-dairy "ice cream" and a plant-based banana-nut loaf to fill us until the breakfast next morning. For that, the price was considerably more than we are used to: $57 with gratuity. We won't be eating out much at that rate. We expect truth in advertising.
This is a perfect lake experience. We met friends who live on a nearby lake and had a wonderful time. The food was very creative and tasted wonderful. How fortunate we are to have a restaurant of such high quality in Indiana. The bento boxes provide an opportunity to sample all sorts of very creative items.
The service was extremely slow. It took us an hour to get our food. Whenever we asked for lemons, refill etc., it took about 15 to 20 mins to receive . They offer to comp us free desserts, which took 30 mins to bring. We asked for the bill and that's when the desserts came to our table.
I had never experience anything like this before at Cerulean. Overall the food was good but the service was horrible. Probably will not dine there again.
Probably the best restaurant in a 90 minute radius of Fort Wayne. Nothing cookie-cutter. The staff don't speak chain restaurant English. Place settings match what you order. The bar is creative. As for the food, it's nice to go out and really enjoy everything you order. Cerulean is sophisticated without being snobbish or pretentious. Great cheese board of Indiana cheeses. Nice location on a lake channel. The neighborhood has a bit of a lake resort feel.
