A bit more light in order to read the wine list would be my only request.

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.

We had a wonderful dinner. We had the Brussel sprouts salad, pasta with pepper and swordfish along with the redfish dinner. It was all excellent. They even gave us a peanut butter cookie to go!

Food was overpriced. The spaghetti grosso tasted like Spaghetti O’s, the tagliolini tasted like cheese pasta with pepper (no flavor, super boring), and the squid ink mafaldini was blah and undercooked. The only good food was the redfish, which was a super small portion, and the meat and cheese board.

Overall, the food was disappointing. We had a reservation and had to wait 20 minutes before seated. Just a poor experience.

The food was incredible. However, we asked our server numerous times for multiple items before receiving our requests (i.e., more water (x3), where is the side item (x2), a sample of wine (x2), etc.). The dining room did not have a crowd, yet she was challenging to locate.

My boyfriend and I went out for a long overdue date night. Literally, everything was PHENOMENAL! The bartender, Chris, made us fantastic cocktails. Then, once sat at our table, our server, Alex, provided us an unforgettable experience! The food was exquisite, and we had equally exceptional service to match. I definitely look forward to our future visits at this establishment.

Our primary server was terrific. A second server took our lunch order. I asked for salmon as a protein on a salad and he abruptly said we don’t have salmon. He said what fish he had and I asked for a description. It was oily and made my salad soggy. It should not been that he recommended shrimp or chicken bc it was bad! And did not pair with my light salad. I did not eat it

We had brunch which included a buffet of salads, cheese, pastries and desserts. We ordered the chicken over mashed polenta and mushroom gravy which was a very uniform in flavor with no contrasts, eggs, and I can’t remember what else but nobody was impressed. I didn’t finish my chicken and the buffet again was uniform in flavor, everything looked pretty mayo heavy and no fresh options like fruit, green leafy vegetables to pair the more starchy options. We spent $75 for a mediocre meal and will not be returning. The space to go to the buffet was narrow so it was challenging for customers and waiters alike. The decoration was very elegant and the seating comfortable but unfortunately the meal itself had no highlights at all.

Love the amazing pastas at this place. For the first time ever though, the bourbon with ginger infused syrup and grapefruit speciality cocktail was a miss. Oh well, this place is still pretty close to perfection imo.

The dining experience at St. Cecelia's was super. Brian, our server, was very knowledgeable and attentive to my 11 person party. The ambiance and vibe were spectacular for my wife's small birthday party event. The food was delicious and cost appropriate. We all thoroughly enjoyed this jewel of a restaurant. First impressions hit a home run! We will be back..

Drinks were awesome, the place and ambience were great. Very tasty food. Small portions but tasty. My server was ok. She rolled her eyes at me since I was not sure about what to order which I thought it was rude and when my husband asked her which plate was the one she suggested? she replied with a bit of an attitude, well I have suggested like four! I can't say which. But overall I would go back.
