    Service and ambiance were great! Food was good but not wow. A lot of fried food and lots of salt. The best part was the appetizers and dessert.

    St. Cecilia is one of our favorite restaurants, and we’ve been coming for the past three years. However, our serve this time was not accommodating and not welcoming. The food is amazing, and everything that we ordered was on time and fresh, but our serve for our our appetizers and didn’t put an effort in making our experience a truly wonderful one. The server seemed to be distracted and was sometimes cold to us. Otherwise, we’ve gotten amazing servers before, and we will for sure come back again.

    Service was impeccable. Flounder was delicious. The lobster risotto was a bit soupy with limited lobster meat. The salad was huge - almost enough for 3 people.

    Valentines Day reservation with a $500 Gift Card. Did not receive champagne or a rose at check-in when everyone else did, did not receive complimentary bread with meal when everyone else around us did. Honestly felt discriminated against, whether it was due to age, outfits or payment method. Was not made to feel welcome. Tipped our server >20% despite the experience.

    Ambiance was terrific as well as the wait staff. Very knowledgeable and informative. The food honestly didn’t live up to expectations. I had the sea bass and my wife had the swordfish. Both us us found our meals incredibly salty. At first it was great until we got about 1/2 way done and we were both at our salt limits and couldn’t eat any more. We got panna cota for dessert and that was underwhelming as well. Outside of the restaurant the valet was a joke. We pulled up and waited for like 10 minutes and nobody came. When I finally saw a valet attendant I got out of the car to check my car in. They apologized for the weight as they were extremely behind. Overall the whole experience isn’t what I would expect from this caliber of restaurant.

    We had a great experience with the ambience, the drinks and the service that was provided by our server Christy, the food we have had better tasting food. Really enjoyed their half chicken. Their sword fish was little on the saltier side. Enjoyed the lumache quite a bit as well. Their cocktails are a hit everytime. The server was very helpful and pleasant. Definitely coming back again. Love the spot.

    Our experience at St. Cecilia was embarrassing for me, as I recommended the venue for an important work dinner. We were seated at a table next to the turn in the bar. Several drunk patrons standing in the walkway between our table and the bar fell into our table, knocking the glasses and making us feel extremely uncomfortable. I asked to move tables but was told no despite there being at least 50% of the other tables open. The food was okay but extremely oily. When leaving, we asked for our parking garage tickets to be validated. The rude hostess rolled her eyes and commented that they don’t validate parking. I mentioned that I was there literally a week ago for lunch and had my parking ticket validated, to which she replied “we never validate tickets, so you’re wrong.” As a result, my guests and I paid $16 for parking. The experience was poor because of the disregard for customer service, no matter what the cuisine is like.
