Amazing! My second time to Atlanta, and second time to St.Cecelia. It was just as good as I remember from 2 years ago. Our server was so kind and made wonderful recommendations and didn't make us feel rushed. I will be back!

I love this restaurant, the food is delectable, from the house bread to the charcuterie to the Lumache. The service was on point and I never grew hungry or thirty waiting for my waitress to return to the table. And finally, the ambiance definitely gave New York City vibes.

My favorite restaurant in all of Atlanta! The vibe and ambiance is fun and chic. The service is extraordinary---our server was also a sommelier and made excellent recommendations. The timing of the courses was perfect. We are still dreaming about the focaccia bread and the pasta. Truly an amazing dining experience!

The bread is remarkable. Eat it. You can't go wrong with any of the pasta dishes. A special shoutout to the sunchoke soup as an appetizer; it was to die for. St. Cecelia was one of the best overall restaurants I've been to in a long time, and the dinner made our anniversary extra special.

It was my birthday and we kindly asked the server if there was any free birthday dessert (I was going to be okay if they didn’t). The server then looked at me and just wished me a happy birthday with the most sarcastic tone ever and didn’t even answer my question. She just looked really done with work. It just ruined my overall mood.

Reservation was at 9pm and we were not brought to our table until 9:45pm. There was no offer of even a simple glass of wine for the 45 minute wait even though they required a $25 hold on the table and would have charged it if we were 15 minutes late.

The $95 pre fixed menu was garbage. Portions were so small and food lacked flavor. They should have just served their normal menu instead of ripping off patrons with an over priced menu that came with no food.

I will go back because on normal nights the food is good. I guess they couldn’t handle mass producing the food for new year eve.

This was a New Years Eve 6:30 reservation. Set 5 course menu with 4 choices for each course, plus a wine or cocktail pairing with each course if desired. For a packed night, the St. Celia kitchen staff and servers were ON IT! It was an incredible dining experience and I will be back soon! Oh yeah, the food was absolutely phenomenal!

We enjoyed a mother daughter dinner together and had such a great meal. The beef cheek ravioli was so decadent and the hearth roasted fish was a treat. Chauncey, our waiter, truly added to a wonderful night.

We enjoyed our meal. We have beef ravioli... it has a much nicer name - but that is what we remember it by. Ambiance was nice and spacing was excellent. Wish the selection of appetizers or salads was larger. Nice for a special occasion.
