St. Cecilia Ratings and Reviews

This is a great spot to take friends and/or have a business lunch. We love the food as it is always fresh and delicious. The service and the atmosphere are fantastic too. We recently had lunch with a friend from Los Angeles, who is a big foodie, and he loved it. Our server, Brooke, made our experience extra special.

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience- everything from environment and comfortable seating, to food and wonderful service. Servers helped out their co-workers, and not in a way which makes you feel uncomfortable. Commend their team effort. Server was great, had we remembered her name, we would mention her specifically. Went the extra mile, which ensures our return the next time we are in the area.

Very good food and service. I wouldn't recommend for a romantic evening or a dinner where you are expecting good conversation. The way the tables set up. I was closer to the table next to me than the person I went with.

Both appetizer and entrees delivered cold. Very small portion of appetizer. Good presentation but the taste of the entrees and desserts was unexceptional. Repetitive visits by various people (?4 maybe) asking if everything was excellent. Told the first person that appetizer was cold and she said she'd let the chef know so all would be at its normal level of excellence. Obviously, chef didn't care since both entees delivered luke warm. Did get appetizer free. Very pricey for what we got. Will not go back and can't recommend.

We are in Atlanta for a funeral and booked St.Cecilia for a break from family. Told the waiter we were not in a hurry. The appetizers were great. Ordered gnudi and pork ragout as entree both came out at room temp at best. On top of at no one came around except to try and seat people next to us. When there were better tables for them. So a quiet evening in a nice restaurant turned into a cold food circus. The manager took care of the entrees but I still don't know if management gets it.

Visiting from Seattle. This place debunks the myth that large restaurants can't feel like a boutique restaurant!!! Excellent everything. While the photos I saw made the space look smaller than it actually is, I was pleasantly surprised to experience the "wow" of just about every dish. I wish we had followed our waiters suggestion to try smaller pasta courses, as the pasta is fantastic! Will definitely recommend and will definitely return!

This was one of the worst dining experiences in a number of years. The serving of the main course took 20 minutes after the appetizers were finished. In addition, 3 of the 4 main course selections were overcooked. We will not visit this restaurant in the future.

This place is great. The food is outstanding. We had the Italian meat and cheese platter as an appetizer. Delicious and filling. The focaccia bread is outstanding. And the roasted Brussel sprouts with Proscuto and balsamic vinegar are our favorite. When in Buckhead, this restaurant is a must. Casual and fun atmosphere.

Best brunch we've had in memory. Everything was delicious. The "help yourself" bar full of meats, cheeses, breads, olives etc. was wonderful but be careful or you won't have room for your meal! Excellent house cocktails. Best of all was Ande, our server. She is thoroughly knowledgeable on all the food and drink including the carefully selected wine list. Her service is impeccable. This was a brunch with my daughter, the brunch expert, visiting from New York and she agrees with all the above.

Great bustling place, the food is interesting and tasty. Intimacy is at premium, the tables are tight and on a Saturday night St. Cecilia can become almost LaGuardian with strangers competing for elbow room and staff trying to process patrons at optimum velocity. Still, the uniqueness of the menu is worth the hassle

This restaurant was AMAZING! Me and my gang were treated very special for my bachelorette dinner here. We were surprised with an additional dish for our pasta tasting and were surprised with complimentary champagne to celebrate as well! I spilled red wine on my top and the person serving our table was literally there in the blink of an eye to help me get cleaned up. Such great service, food, and overall atmosphere. LOVED everything about St. Cecilia!!! <3

My second visit was better than the first. A great restaurant! Extensive wine list that may need a bit of guidance to find your perfect bottle. The staff is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. The food was truly delicious with complex flavors and without feeling overly orchestrated. Definitely one of the best dinners in ATL!

Great service and atmosphere. Salad was pretty bland. Dressing needed more flavor, much of the food was over salted - by far the potatoes had too much salt and the Ricotta spread for the bread much too much pepper.
The entree pastas were both delicious, one over salted.
Been her many times and always fantastic, this time not so wonderful.

Sleek seasonal modern decor - excellent accommodating service - enjoyed the crab and prosciutto appetizer especially ( even though there was one small shell fragment) - snapper was also a very nice entree - asked for a half order brussell sprout side since I was dining alone - they brought me a full order but then comped it! Very nice!

We have always enjoyed our visits to St. Cecelia's. The food in expertly prepared; they have the best preparations of fish in Atlanta. The service is always spot on. Our waiter, Smith, knew the menu well and was attentive to our needs. Only complaint on this occasion was that the carpaccio was a little meager and not as tender as we have had in the past. Everything else was outstanding.

This was our first dinner at St Cecilia. Our only regret is that we didn't discover it sooner. The restaurant is beautiful, hip but not too loud and also warm/inviting. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was terrific. I highly recommend the tuna appetizer and the pear ravioli as well as the desserts and specialty cocktails. The tables are space nicely, so you aren't forced to hear other people's conversations. Location is great for those who live in Buckhead/Sandy Springs/Brookhaven. We will definitely go back soon!

We were initially seated at banquet table with diners close on either side. Hubby is hard of hearing so asked the server if we could moved to a booth that would be less noisy. We were kindly accommodated . It was downhill from there . My fish with root veges was so salty I could barely eat. Service less than attentive ... but when I did tell server I was beyond accepting her offer of a do-over. Manager came to apologize . I tried to make light of situation. My entree was removed from our bill. The gesture was appreciated but it left us with less than good taste concerning this lively restaurant! Just hope chef was told!

The food was very good as it should be at these prices, and that alone makes it worth the drive to Buckhead if you are a foodie. The service was slow and disappointing. We had a mix of wait staff tending to our table. It seems at one point our waiter became overwhelmed and was assisted by another wait person, but not without there being an obviously long delay between courses and entree to dessert. I've experienced this before at restaurants that are no longer open, but I suspect the well-heeled crowd leaving Phipps and Lenox, or nearby office buildings, will keep it running.

In town for a business conference and was able to take some highly valued clients for an enjoyable and entertaining culinary venue. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was attentive and engaging and the extensive wine and food options were explored to their fullest.
The table enjoyed every moment from the introduction of the fried brussel sprouts appetizer to the Sticky Pear dessert and final sips of the Limoncello flasks.

Excellent food with impeccable service. The drinks arrived quickly and the waitress was on point, even though it was a busy Saturday night. I forgot her name, but my receipt said Team 1. The food arrived by a team of people and piping hot. We were celebrating a big occasion as well. We will return the next time we are in town visiting our son.

We had been to several of Ford Fry's restaurants (Marcel, The Optimist, JCT Kitchen) and St. Cecilia next on our list. We shared two of the crudos, the burrata, the Nero risotto, and the lobster/chorizo pan roast. The food did not disappoint and our server (Alexandria) was excellent (especially with her suggested wine pairings). A very enjoyable evening, except for a scary Lyft driver on our return home!

Our server was slow to greet us and we were the only people in the restaurant for a 5pm reservation. She was not very knowledgeable about the bar menu. Other than our server the meal and dining experience was fantastic! We had the charcuterie plate, sweet potato ravioli, and side of brussel sprouts and heirloom carrots. Amazing!

This is a top notch up scale dining experience from start to finish. Wonderful location. Great ambiance. Terrific service. Creative menu. Delicious food very well presented. We lingered over what became a 3 hour business lunch and never once did we feel hurried or rushed by the staff.
