Food is ok, portions are very small and the price is very high.

2/6 at our table thought the fish they got was not good and another 2/6 thought the portion of fish they got was very small. (which is a good thing I guess if it isn't very good!)

Noise level from the wonderful music is very high - at a table of 6 you could only here the person directly next to you or across from you unless they significantly raised their voice. No fun.

We were celebrating birthdays and they gave us a complimentary dessert! All the food was delicious and we enjoyed ourselves.

It is a good restaurant and lovely inside. My appetizer was petite for the price, but the salad was generous so it and the fabulous bread beforehand somewhat compensated. I would go with pasta next time. There are not many vegetarian choices. Do NOT try to enter from the back of the building (ironically where all of the signage is). The valet entrance is available in a traffic circle in front of a large Buckhead office building-hard to miss with a huge Chihuly hanging sculpture). If you try to enter from the back you are face to face with diners. There are only sliding glass doors that open from the inside. That evening there were strings of lights (?) around the outside tables so twice, I nearly made an impressive pratfall which would have been entertaining to diners, not so much to me :(

From the moment we walked in and they thanked us for spending our 29th anniversary with them to the serving of warm carrot cake for dessert the whole staff was outstanding. The food was unique and wonderful and the parings of the specialty drinks with the starters and the wine with the mains showed the time and energy spent in ongoing training and the pride that everyone took in making this night special.

Thank you to all.

This is one of the best restaurants in Atlanta, certainly in Buckhead. The atmosphere is alive. The aroma of delicious food permeates. The service is knowledgeable and attentive. Fantastic pasta and so much more! We will continue to visit this restaurant regularly!

Solid experience, two complaints: 1) a fine dining establishment should be able to transfer the bar bill to the table and 2) I expected a small gesture of sorts from the restaurant recognizing the 70th birthday of one of the guests.

That aside, the food was good and the service attentive.

We selected St. Cecilia for our anniversary dinner this year and they did not disappoint. The service was great, beautiful atmosphere, and meal was delicious (and the seasonal pear dessert was absolutely AMAZING!). We'll definitely be going back.

St. Cecilia never disappoints! It my go-to for special occasions and we are always treated to excellent food and service. Our server, Alex, was fantastic - right on top of everything and there were 7 of us in our party! I do recommend St. Cecilia often and will continue to do so.

Amazing experience! Not only was the food perfect, but the service was also amazing. We ordered the braised beef agnolotti which is always perfect, as well as the prime steak with cacio e pepe. We had amazing bread with whipped ricotta and olive oil to start (delicious), then after dinner, got the pear pudding cake which is HIGHLY recommended. The service was so attentive and professional, while also making us feel so welcomed. Everything was perfect. Thanks St. Cecilia!

The food was so salty it was inedible. The server was wonderful however and did everything she could to make our experience more pleasurable, but in the end, the kitchen had a very bad night.

Everything was just ok. Food was decent. Service was good. But ultimately, nothing special. The space was very scenic, but that’s where the wow factor ends. Food was fine, just not amazing. This restaurant is good for business, but not particularly romantic or cozy.
