St. Cecilia Ratings and Reviews

Saw the restaurant on Atlanta Eats. Looked spectacular on the show and proved to be just
that! This is a "must try" in the Buckhead area. We're from the Johns Creek area and it was
certainly worth the drive.
Would have liked to see the bartender free pour versus 'measuring'. Loved the bar area and
We'll be back!

Ate at the bar. Bartenders had an unnecessary attitude and did not have a sense of urgency. I sat at the bar 3ft away from a bartender that did not acknowledge me or make eye contact with me for 7min until he finished with another group of customers. The bar is an environment where you need to multi-task and make several customers feel welcome and warm simultaneously. They did not smile, engage in conversation. Very unhappy crew.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Really enjoyed our dinner. The service was outstanding.
This restaurant has an attractive setting and is certainly a excellent place to spend a special evening. This restaurant will also be one that we will return to.

We were disappointed in our visit to St. Cecilia. The service was mostly good (left us hanging a time or two), the atmosphere was fine but the food was no better than average.
The four of us ordered (1) Oysters ~ 6 small oysters for $20.00. They were good but poor value; (2) Octopus salad ~ we are all adventuresome eaters but none of us liked this much. Not bad, just not tasty. (3) Branzino/Sea Bass ~ This was the biggest disappointment. A lot of drama and waiting while our server deboned the fish at the table, then drizzled it with olive oil. Very bland! We did like the topping of olives and something else (fennel?) but that couldn't save the bland fish (supposed to be smoked?) and at $38.00, a poor value. (4) Agnolotti pasta - This was a small portion of barely warm pasta (ravioli-style) stuffed with short rib meat. Very little sauce and just kind of tasteless. I had read good things about this pasta but it seemed like ours had been sitting around a while. Honestly, Brio has much tastier pasta which is served piping hot. (5) Brussel sprouts. This was our best dish although our local pizza place also serves delicious sprouts. (6) Our server did bring us complimentary limoncellos in lieu of dessert as we were celebrating a birthday. That was a nice touch which we appreciated.
Bottom Line: I have read that the Ford Fry restaurants tend to be all glitz but too often serve up lackluster food. Our visit to St. Cecilia definitely confirms that theory. We've been to St. Cecilia once and that's enough for us.

We were at st. Cecilia for new year's eve, prix fixe menu for $85 per person. Overall, The food was wonderful starting off with the out of the oven house made foccacia with whipped riccotta. The amuse was a turnip and apple soup with smoked artic char and black truffles. The jonah lump crab and pear ravioli with chiles , all excellent. Steelhead trout entree with anchovies, capers, brown butter, fantastic. The ny strip entree was great however the braised short rib was a little stringy. The poached lobster risotto was undercooked. However our waiter solved that problem. We were pleased with the meal however the dessert let us down. It was not even close to the execution of the other courses. An afterthought. The chocolate mousse cup had a mousse that ran all over the plate. We thought we had the option of a chocolate terrine with cherries and pistachios. But the menu changed. I guess they could not pull it off. The first four courses were great but the dessert did not allow us to leave on a high note. Our waiter was excellent.

Fantastic dining experience. My husband and I were enjoying our first night out in a long time and it was well worth it. We had exceptional service from Cameron and impeccable food from the back of the house. Can't wait to return!!

As always, St. Cecilia was wonderful, from the holiday cocktails to the grilled octopus starter to the always-great branzino (my favorite) to the duck and crab pasta! A memorable evening.
Always great professional service as well from everyone involved.
It was a very busy Tuesday night with a lively bar crowd and everyone having fun.
I look forward to our next visit!

We visited for their Christmas week's "Feast of the Seven Fishes" and had an amazing meal, great cocktails, good wine, and delicious after-dinner drinks. Attentive, unobtrusive service, beautiful and delicious food.

The atmosphere is wonderful - contemporary & tasteful venue. The service was also excellent - our server went through the entire menu, every.single.item. God bless his patience for doing that every table!!! However, the food was not what I expected - my mahi mahi was dull and carrots seemed over cooked. I've tried the salmon also and same thing. However, the cheese and bread selection is delicious! In my opinion the price is not worth the dishes served. I'd only go back for their cheese and drinks (virgin)selection.

Wonderful lunch! This is a gorgeous and delicious restaurant. Our lunch was late and so there was no crowd. Everyone from the valets to our server were delightful and caring! All of us had a different entree and all were very pleased with their choices. The pasta dishes are very inventive and we all agreed that the flavors were balanced and excellent. Highly recommend and will be back for dinner!

I've been to St. Cecilia a couple of times and it never disappoints. This was a first time for my two business guest and they both couldn't stop raving about the food and service.
The oysters were out of this world. Our main entrees (Swordfish and Mahi) were super fresh and amazingly seasoned.

Great food and service. We had an issue with one dish and the staff was really attentive to make sure the situation was righted. We were also treated to a glass of limoncello which was a really nice touch. Overall positive experience and would love the chance to go back.
One thing to note - strongly suggest using Valet, it's $2 and parking yourself can be really confusing. Pinnacle is the correct deck to use if parking yourself but they don't validate.

Called on new brunch offerings hostess said it is a 4 course offering buffet for first course and you get a choice from each course eggs , pasta and fish/beef but when seated the server said you just get one choice from the 3 course offerings . felt that staff did not have the correct info being 3 weeks into their brunch menu should have the correct info. But the food was great most of all the first course buffet of salads cheeses and meats and then desserts
