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.

St. Cecilia really is, "our place," right now. So dependable. So tasty. And it feels like you're really going out, not just getting something to eat.

St Cecilia was outstanding, the charcuterie plate was really good, there were so many things on the menu I wanted to try but I went for the squid ink pasta, the beef ravioli was good as was the duck. The figgy pudding is more like sticky toffee pudding but it was good (and very large). Would definitely go back.
The only thing that let it down was that it felt too cold inside.

My wife and I have dined at St Cecilia at before and it was wonderful. This time however the manager and/or kitchen made a big mistake. My wife’s duck came out cold and instead of remaking it they reheated it. Bad decision. We will be back but hope next time will be much better.

Accommodated wheelchair and preference for plant based. The base of the table design does not allow for a guest in a wheelchair to pull up as close to the table as possible but it was doable - just not ideal. Food was good and cocktails were tasty. Husband had Bourbon neat and it was a a very measured pour.

We are normally big fans of this restaurant but this time the food was not up to standards. The grouper we had was very tough, the cold cut board not the same as usual and also the pasta was not good. Not sure if the usual chef was not there or what happened.

Our sherpa for the evening was Ella B (competent, personable and worth asking for). With the exception of a misfire on an over-mature hamachi appetizer (noted and not corrected) everything was perfectly prepared and graciously presented. Incredible grilled octopus. The pasta courses are exceptional - sharing several is encouraged from this quarter. Swordfish and roasted shellfish were topnotch tonight. The apple and chocolate desserts were the two best sampled. Pretty much worth the challenge of dining in a popular venue - the food remains that good.

The Bar Bites (served at the bar until 6:30 p.m.) were very good! After that we sat at a booth and had a couple of pastas, a bottle of Super Tuscan wine, and a dessert and ALL was wonderful! The only negative was the fact that we were celebrating a birthday, but they still charged for the dessert.

This place is phenomenal. If you can’t decide which past you want, you can order appetizer portion in which still quite generous. The duck was delicious.

It was quiet because we dined on a Sunday evening when it was not 25% occupied. I expected better service from an upscale restaurant. For example, it took a while for our wine to come out; when I ordered a 2nd/different glass of wine, the glass was delivered to the table and the wine followed about 5 minutes later; lastly the desserts were delivered before the coffees.
