St. Cecilia Ratings and Reviews
Overrated restauarant. Would not recommend this place. Food is small portions. The summer salad was two slices of tomato, 2 slices of peach, 4 1/2 inch cubes of cucumber and two thinly sliced piece of beet. For the price, you should get a lot more. The $21 corn tortellini was an appetizer portion and basic cheese tortellini with some corn pieces on it. The swordfish we ordered came out after they messed up the order and they brought monkfish initially after waiting forty minutes for food. They were nice and then quickly made the correct dish but it was flavorless and the sides were two not fully cooked pieces of baked potatoes and some small tomatoes that weren't ripe but orange and the whole dish was lacking in flavor. Disappointed in food quality and quantity. Nice ambience if you want a cool place to impress someone with the appearance.
My fiance and I are celiac so this place never disappoints. They make their own gluten free pasta in house!! It's a rarity to even find an Italian place we can eat at, so the fact that they can recreate any of their pastas for us is incredible. We love this place and highly recommend!
As we sat down waiter was very attentive and took
Our order right away.
Apt arrived 10 min after. Good timing.
Taste was good but not wow. Little pricy for the
Amount of food on the plate.
Then .. comes the problem why I gave it 3 stars.
40 min to get our main dish !
My fish was warm not hot only the chef knows how long it sat on the counter before I was served.
The veg were ice cold.
My daughter risotto was just tasteless rice. It takes a lot to make a risotto,, a real risotto, this one was far away from it. We didn't complain since it was already late , and I didn't wanted to wait another 30 min for a new dish.
After all ok but no more then that.
This was my first time here and it shall not be my last! It was my 50th Birthday and I couldn't have enjoyed it more! We went at lunch so it was full of handsome business men and women in concentrated discussions and it was fun to watch. Our server Alex was informative, relaxed and knowledgable and super nice! We enjoyed the homemade pillows of pasta filled with short ribs and my vegan daughter was made a stunning plate of vegetables, potatoes and edible flowers! The drinks were spot on and the birthday limoncello was delicious! For dessert we had the pistachio layered cake that will be my new favorite!! Thank you for making it a delicious day!!
We really enjoyed this restaurant. We went around 1 during lunch and left around 3pm. It was so quiet and spacious, not many people around. Our waitress was so sweet and the cocktails were light and lovely. We shared a antipasta platter, it was amazing!!
I would definitely eat here again. Also they have valet parking and its only 2.00
We have been to St Cecilia numerous times and have never been disappointed. Our recent visit was to celebrate a family birthday. The server, Rema, was over the top attentive, helpful with menu, and just all-in-all a great addition to our celebration! The food was outstanding plus! This is a bright jewel in the Atlanta community and I recommend highly! Ford Fry rules in Atlanta cuisine!
St. Cecilia's was exquisite! The waiter was top notch! The octopus was the best I have ever had! The red snapper appetizer was incredible. The rack of lamb perfect! The desert was scrumptious. I chose a bubbly that was very nicely priced and it was sooooo good. My husband said that his squid ink pasta was fantastic. We will go again!!
Enjoyed a post shopping dinner with family. Service was good and we were seated at our reservation time. Everything we ordered was very good. I think the Lobster & Chorizo Pan Roast was the best with large pieces of varied seafood (muscles, fish - not just lobster) in a great sauce. Second prize went to the Agnolotti - everyone wanted to taste this one. While the pasta was very good, I think the seafood was the star of the meal. However, if you go, someone must order the Agnolotti as well!
Ford Fry has a number of restaurants in the Atlanta metro and one in Houston. He is a competent restauranteur across a range of food options--seafood to Tex-Mex, beach grill to fine dining. Each concept has a different identity, name & look. The interiors are perfectly on-point to each concept; and the menus (cocktails as well as food) offer fresh presentations of conventional flavors with enough new items to keep palates intrigued. There is no chain-restaurant sameness. St. Cecilia may be the toniest of his offerings, but it is not daunting or painfully "up scale." St. Cecilia's offerings are decidedly Italian-inspired, but don't expect Mama's red sauce or Tony Soprano's baked ziti. Smartly crafted cocktails and freshly baked bread (served with olives and soft cheese) preceded fresh tomatos, paper thin radish slices & mixed greens on a salad plate and a cup of watermelon-based gazpacho. Served just shy of perfectly seasoned (a positive note, because too much salt is generally a dining-out problem) with a small salt cellar available, the primi piatti were deliciously executed. Our secondi piatti were a braised short rib-filled agnolotti and a roasted monkfish. The house-made pasta was perfectly cooked and its filling was flavorful. The monkfish on its bed of green beans was equally satisfying. Neither the salads nor the entrees fell into the "best I've ever had" category, but there was no sense of discontent for either of us. Their Italian Torta di Tre Latti is St. Cecilia's rendition of the perennial Tex-mex favorite Tres Leches cake. This delicious variation is decidedly moist with the addition of coconut flakes and the pineapple purée provided a soft edge of tartness. The chocolate dessert was a bit too chocolaty. Fresh raspberries atop ganache in a shell of chocolate would have benefited from a bit of warm cake under the shell to temper the flavors. Service is friendly & competent. Definitely worth a return trip for good food & service in a great atmosphere.
Had a wonderful dinner at St Cecilia on a Friday night! Our server Alex was knowledgeable and friendly and gave us excellent recommendations. We started with a cocktail, I had the Cheating Strategy which was delicious and refreshing. Wine selection was nice. Bread was so fresh! We shared the waygu beef carpaccio salad - ridiculously good!! We had the signature agnolotti dish and the whole sea bream (they were out of branzino but we love sea bream so felt that was a bonus) that she filleted at the table! Loved the guava/champagne sorbet and chocolate ganache tart for dessert. Restaurant looks very cool inside, loved the atmosphere. Overall an amazing dining experience.
We had very good meals at this restaurant - this one was not one of then. Good was awful, tasteless and cold. St Cecilia needs to work to provide a more consistent, even experience. We stopped going a fee months ago because the quality of the good and service was bad buy improved later which is the reason we came back. I guess we need to stop going again for a while...
Went here for a date. The wine and food were absolutely impeccable! However, it is kinda loud and open so it may have not been the best place for a date. Most of the crowd were business people from the nearby buckhead offices. But overall, it was a great experience.
Was a bit skeptical since we ordered some appetizers and they were fair. It was hummus and pickled vegetable. The flat bread was average. The server was miserable. We waited over 25 min for her to not only wait on us and take our orders. It was embarrassing since I had 3 clients out for lunch. My only complaint was lack of service from our waitress. The food was overall good except for the appetizers. I was not impressed and when I sent back the hummus platter I asked for bread, I was informed it was $5 charge. Whatever. At that point my clients were starving. The meal itself was great. I really enjoyed my Bouillabaisse, it was excellent! The bread was smoked and was amazing! Other than service/ apps , meal was excellent.
