St. Cecilia Ratings and Reviews

The best meal we have had in ATL in a long time. St Cecilia wowed us in every facet...food, wine, atmosphere, and service! We shared a small plate of the agnolotti and then ordered the casoncelli verde and snapper. Just awesome! We cannot wait to return. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

The reason the food got a 3 and overall the restaurant received a 4 was due to heavy use of salt on every dish served to us. Don't get me wrong - I love salt and my family says I use too much. But the primary flavor of every dish on our table was salt. We had the summer tomatoes, the monkfish, and the salmon. Both fish dishese were cooked to perfection. I enjoyed it all although the salt came through loudly on everything. My wife struggled to enjoy her Salmon since it was so salty. I was hoping to experience more complex flavoring and I suspect it was there - just hidden under the salt.

Absolutely fantastic dinner! I reluctantly ordered the chicken (because it's chicken), but it was amazingly delicious! Full of flavor and crispy skin. Great dish! My wife had the monk fish and she raved about it. We had appetizer portions of the pasta that were incredible. We were too full for a desert, but the wine list was impressive. Wonderful dining experience.

This restaurant always gets two thumps up! The service is impeccable. The food is well prepared, well presented and the seasoning will tickle your taste buds without going overboard. Five star restaurant for sure, will recommend to everyone.

Went back to St. Cecilia for, what we hoped and expected would be another great Italian meal, and we were , again, blown away! We're regulars there and they really do make us feel special as many restaurants, while great, simply do not grasp the hospitality vibe, as St. Cecilia has it down. The summer menu just changed over, and is it a Killer!! Love, Love, Love the squid ink spaghettini. We almost ordered another one. Beautifully prepared, fresh, garlic, chilies, alot of heat if you like that....we definitely do. The Caramelle is wonderful little pockets filled with eggplant and very light. Love the Casoncelli Verde, and also not to be missed. So flavorful, and again, done to perfection. The Octopus, is always a huge hit, light, beautifully charred, and so delicious on a hot summer night with a glass of Champagne. Love St. Cecilia, love the scene, love EVERYTHING! Can't wait to go back!

Losing its luster. They forgot our main dishes so we waited for over an hour for food. Comped a dessert and one glass of wine. Uh...I didn't really want dessert but whatever. Should have comped main dishes. Monkfish was bland. Used to love this place but it seems off its game...

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and it was wonderful! All the food and drinks we ordered were phenomenal, but the lobster and chorizo dish was the best! It was one of the best meals we have ever had! They also sent us home with cookies as an anniversary congratulations! It was a wonderful surprise

St. Cecilia is one of the Ford Fry restaurants that exemplifies the careful, disciplined approach he took to building a cohesive experience before he went into empire-building mode and started churning out disappointments like Marcel and Beetlecat. It's still one of our favorite dining rooms and kitchens in Atlanta. Both their pastas and their fish dishes (the centerpieces of the contemporary Mediterranean concept) are superb; the service is impeccable. I have brought friends here for dinners, have booked the private room for large celebrations...and have very occasionally brought the family spontaneously. Much as we love the food, St. Cecilia simply isn't priced for what-the-heck family dining. That changed a while back when they instituted Sunday Supper. Sundays have never (when I've been there) been very busy evenings there, so I was delighted when they instituted a family-style, $35-per-person, 4-course meal. Sure, that's still close to $200 before a drop of alcohol, but the quality of the food and the experience made it well worth it. I was tremendously disappointed when we showed up last Sunday and saw that Sunday Suppers are gone. Yes, we had an excellent dinner, but there were only three of us, we had only 2 glasses of wine in total and we spent about $200. It's a real shame they killed Sunday Suppers since they are asking us to think of them as only a special-occasion restaurant again.

Food was incredible - from apps (oysters and sal's for us) to pasta and fish. Alex was a great part of our evening as she is a fantastic wait person - always there at the right time. Can't wait to come back again.

Great ambiance, with a non-traditional seating area that provides more privacy for diners than having standard square tables lined up next to each other. Our group of four shared food family style and everything we tried was delicious! The waitress was very informative, answering our questions, giving recommendations, and advising us on the perfect combination of dishes from the various courses. We were there for a birthday dinner and they even brought us an extra dessert with a candle in it! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone for a special occasion dinner!

While the $12.00 cork fee is considerably less than most other restaurants, the presentation and wine service was deplorable. Our server didn't initially poor our wine, or refill our glasses. In addition, the decanter and wine glasses were the most generic we had used in any restaurant. In hindsight, we should have suspected poor service when told the corkage fee was only $12.00. But, that doesn't explain the mediocre salad and entrees. Overall, no value for the $150.00+ bill and we will not return.

Was expecting typical Ford Fry--pretty place/mediocre food--however, our food and service were both excellent. Each course, as well well as our cocktails, were well-prepared and delicious. Plan on returning and would recommend.

Dinner was a great experience. Variety of menu & food quality was excellent.
Only negative was the waiter. Didn't visit our table enough & was lax too many times. When you visit a high quality restaurant such as this one you expect the service to match.
