Cut-off after 3 drinks due to the judgement from our waiter is unreal. Very bad for business. We will never go back

Fantastic meal! Tables were spaced far apart for proper social distancing, food was outstanding and our server was beyond fantastic! Megan recommended an amazing Port with dessert which capped off another over the top meal! Our favorite restaurant in Atlanta for a reason!

Felt comfortable there - you can tell they are being careful in the current environment: plenty of space between tables and staff are all aware of distancing and wearing masks properly. The food and cocktails are consistently perfect - as they have always been. Thanks for a relaxing (and rare) night out!

Went there to celebrate my wife’s 60th b-day and had an outstanding red snapper dish followed by scrumptious blueberry pudding. We had concerns with covid and were able to sit outside on patio which was also wonderful. One of my favorite places to eat when we go down to shop in Buckhead and would highly recommend.

Amazing food but our server had too many tables and we were left wo service for very long g periods of time. Food took forever to come out and we had 3 courses plus dessert. The temperature was also uncomfortably cold. We mentioned it to our server and he agreed but it never really changed. It was our anniversary and the food made up for most of the inconveniences.

Music was really loud at an early reservation and hard to hear conversation. The tables/booths were booked right next to each other so you were still back to back with others eat g and sneezing around you.

Nobody came to us to congratulate the birthday person. Why do they ask if we are celebrating a special occasion then? Order for first drinks took forever and after waiting like 20 min the waitress told us one of the drinks was not available. Then we ordered food and took at least 25 min between our starters were finished to receive the next plate and after waiting for like 15 min the waitress came and asked me again what was my order for entree. Unacceptable for this kind of restaurant I would have gone to a Popeyes and would have gotten better service. The second round of drinks took 15 min! And it was just wine! Horrible experience.

We used to go to St Cecelia at least twice a month. We were excited when they reopened. We of course totally understand that with new guidelines, you have to be realistic. But the service was not to the old standard (bar tender had a real attitude when we asked for a drink that used to be on the menu for years but was taken off; they missed the order for appetizer).
What was worse is that the food was really not worth it. The appetizer we ordered we had many times (burata) before; we should have skipped it. They already since last year no longer had the whole fish (branzino), but the overal fish choices were underwhelming. My girlfriend order a pasta fish dish and it honestly looked like spaghetti with a bit of wine sauce with 2 shrimps and no veggies.
So as somebody who used to go twice a month, I don’t see a reason to go back. I would like to give them another chance but if the service is so-so, the fish options are not great and they just removed your favorite drink, then why bother? It’s a shame

A BEAUTIFUL EVENING AT ST. CECILIA!
So happy to be back at one of our favorite hot spots...and they are Hot! A great place for summer dining, in the incredibly chic restaurant or out on the patio!
Social distancing working out well. Food, staff, stellar...as usual!
Will be back very soon, of course!!

Entire experience was very good. For my taste, the Swordfish was a bit salty; however, did not stop me from eating the entire dish. The new format for the Burrata salad was not the best rendition. The potato side dish was absolutely delicious---as always. My wife enjoyed the taste of her Redfish entree and her grilled Octopus was cooked perfectly. Service was delivered flawlessly and was unobtrusive.

We had a FABULOUS experience at St Cecilia and can't wait to return. The bar offered upscale and unique bourbons, cocktails and great wine. I highly recommend their meat and cheese platter appetizer. I have not had that quality since my trip to Italy. We had their seafood and pasta dishes and they were delicious! Excellent service. The atmosphere was upscale but warm and friendly. Do not miss this restaurant!

One of the recommended entrees was an absolute clunker (the mafaldini, which was quickly made right by our server), but the rest of the apps, entrees and desserts were wonderful. Service, ambiance, wine, and everything else was 5 star.
