St. Cecilia Ratings and Reviews
Half way through appetizer before receiving a glass of wine ordered first. Octopus was over cooked and dry. This was also the problem with the whole fish I had for an entree. They did comp the first glass of wine when I said you will sell more drinks if you will serve them earlier to enjoy while we were waiting. Timing was also an issue.
St Cecilia is our go-to for special occasions. We spent our anniversary dinner there recently and again were not let down! We expected the restaurant to be busy because of the holiday - it was - was servers were attentive and on top of everything in spite of being extremely busy. St Cecilia is consistently quite good and I recommend it highly it!
We were disappointed with the food on our 2nd visit. The swordfish I had was very dry and the veggies had a strange flavor. My hubby’s ravioli had very little meat (should have been short ribs).
Our first visit was outstanding. Maybe they had 2nd string cooks since it was the Thanksgiving holiday weekend?? Oh well.
We love St. Cecilia. The menu is always changing and Chef
Craig always makes it interesting. My husband had the swordfish special
which was great and the always wonderful branzino is a dish I always look
forward to. We shared three different crudo dishes and th bay scallops were
I am a huge Foodie and Yelp Elite member, I absolutely love everything about St. Cecilia. From the long, stretch open floors and inviting high ceilings, down to the details of the food presentation on the plate providing the best palate experience. Excellent experience and will most certainly be a repeat customer.
I had a customer in from out of town who is pescatarian and a colleague of mine recommended St. Cecilia. It was delicious! I was a little worried at first glance at the menu, because I am vegan, but I emailed the manager who quickly responded that I should simply tell my server and they would accommodate me. My client had a lovely cheese platter appetizer and some sweet potato pasta and I had a lovely plate of local vegetables cooked to melt in my mouth perfection. We had 2 wine selections that were recommended by the staff and both were great! Definitely recommend!
I don't get the hype... We came here for brunch and were very underwhelmed. We had a reservation but waited about 15 minutes for our table to be ready even though the restaurant was half empty. I would have liked the option to order some of the menu items a la carte rather than having to do the whole package. After adding a cocktail and tip, our brunch was $50 a person and so not worth that. The service was fine, nothing bad but I wouldn't rate it as great service. I ordered the pasta and it was good, but I had better pasta the day before at Ponce City Market for like half the price. I only took a couple of items from the buffet area and nothing stood out as worthy of being a $50 a head brunch.
You can skip this one for brunch. I haven't been for dinner so comment on their dinner service.
When arrived, with a confirmed reservation which I was called twice to confirm, there was a completely empty restaurant but we were escorted to the very back of the restaurant in a corner table behind two poles. The most welcoming part of the entire experience were the Valet attendants. Not too sure what all the hype is about relating to this restaurant. Not worth the $$$$$.
We eat a lot of Italian food since my husband is half Italian, and we usually do not go to Italian restaurants because often we are not pleased.
St. Cecilia was an excellent surprise, and we both were reminded of previous delicious dinners in Italy.
The staff was very accommodating when we asked to move tables, the hostess immediately sat us somewhere else.
We found out that new location was in a section reserved for a private party, so they resat us and then brought out champagne for our inconvenience which was such a nice surprise.
Our server described all the foods and preparations in great depth so we knew exactly what to expect, and she was very personable.
We had: the octopus:a little chewy; the burrata salad and the risotto: good. The waiter forgot to bring us the side dish...The restaurant was busy, a saturday evening, and it took a while to receive the food. Also, we were seated towards the back of the restsurant, close to the bathroom and it was cold at times...felt like a door was opened somewhere...an ok experience, but noisy and not really impressed.
Service was subpar. Plates left on the table 5-10 minutes after we were finished with courses. Water glasses and cocktails empty. Had to ask for water and more drinks - never was asked by waitstaff. Had to remind waitstaff to bring a dish. Food was good but for the price, we will continue to go to Valenza and Haven where the service is always exceptional. Small portions. Skip dessert - nothing fantastic. Won’t be returning.
