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.

Had dinner and shared most of dishes with another couple. We all thought every dish we had was a delight! The steelhead, snapper and orata were all excellently prepared, the dandelion pasta was off the charts. Also loved the crsipy punched potatoes and yummy spumoni dessert and octopus appetizer. Great atmosphere (much better than old Blue Pointe) and service too!

The food is amazing, the service is great and the bar is top notch. Be sure to arrive 15-30 minutes before your reservation so you can grab one of their signature drinks at the bar! Atmosphere is awesome with floor to ceiling windows that look out over Peachtree and Lenox. Highly recommend!

We had a nice evening. The meat and cheese plate was delicious and a nice start to the meal. I ordered the lobster and chorizo which was good but I was surprised to have more mussels than lobster and chorizo. I did not see mussels written with it on the menu. Pretty decor.

I visited the restaurant with my best friend for a girls night out. We had such an amazing time and truly enjoyed ourselves. Couldn't have asked for better food, service or experience. Definitely will be back!!

never write reviews. food was unimpressive for the price. par for Atlanta culinary talent...very few gems. crab was delicious however. no one at hostess stand for 5 minutes. for type of restaurant, unacceptable in hospitality industry. tight tables and super loud environment made it difficult to converse. bread stale. monkfish was not impressive. accompanying polenta was hiding and soggy.
WOW! Thank you Springer Farms Chicken
I had not heard of St. Cecelia until a commercial for Springer Farms Chicken came on TV and featured their restaurant. The Chef was interviewed and it got my attention. I immediately went to Open Table and got a reservation for the next weekend. First of all, I didn't realize it was in Bluepointe's old fabulous location. The remodeled space was beautiful. And then there was the food! My wife and I shared the tuna crudo. The preparations for this and all their dishes were different and worked well. We had 5 crudos to choose from. I had the chilled melon soup, great on a hot evening, and my wife had a wonderful kale salad with blackberries. The piece de resistance to us was the Cacio e Pepe, heavily peppered pasta that tastes like its in a cream sauce, but it is actually pecorino and pasta water that blends to an indescribable concoction. This is a very classic Italian dish that few attempt and even less pull it off. For our entree we shared the Snapper. It was a little overdone and dry to my taste, but I was so happy and full at that time, I didn't care. Huge selection of wines by the glass, we usually order bottles, but my wife and I don't always agree on the choice. I had a beautiful Barbaresco and my wife had white, don't remember what it was, but she loved it. Thank you St. Cecilia and Ford Fry, the chef, for our wonderful evening. Also, Chef thank you for coming by our table, we enjoyed meeting you. And, last but not least, Harry Connick, Jr. was there that night and came up to our table to wish the lady next to us a happy birthday. We'll be back soon.

Great food; atmosphere is great - love the natural light from the huge windows
While the noise level was low due to the early reservation, it was much too warm inside. Understandably, there is a greenhouse effect but with the drapes closed and AC turned up it should have been more comfortable. I think next time will book more in advance for a later evening time or wait until Fall to return. Remains one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

One of my favorites in Atlanta. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Can't wait to go back
A Unique Menu & Eclectic Wine List
A very unique menu comprising largely of Italian inspired seafood dishes. I was also elated to find a wine from Booker vineyards (Paso Robles) on the menu. Paso is a region that I feel is under-represented on the east coast. I emailed the FordFry beverage director before coming to make sure that my special wine was still in stock. It was... and was waiting for me as soon as I was seated. Excellent service.
Great place in Buckhead!

Great everything, more suited to 3 or more guests. Way too cramped for 2, eating elbow to elbow with the two tops to either side. Still, a 5* in my book!!!

We loved our meal at St. Cecelia. Ordered the Chilled Oysters as an appetizer. Meal was the NETTLE CASONCELLI and the RISOTTO NERO. Both entrees were excellent! The only negative was the service, I constantly had to ask for more water for my guest, waited awhile for the check and the waiter had an attitude from mid meal to end. We asked one question about an item on the menu as it was our first time dining as the restaurant and the answer was very short and no recommendations. But when a couple sat next to us the same waiter went on and on explaining everything on the menu. It was unfortunate because we loved the food and the restaurant itself.

I've been here a few times, but this time our waitress recommended the soft shell crab, which was amazing! The short rib agnolotti was also very good (as usual)! Swordfish was a little bit of a let down. I liked everything but the swordfish on the dish, but overall it was a great meal!

Good food and not outrageously priced. I like the seafood. I had the Bronzino. They filleted it for me but unfortunately a lot of bones were still in it. Service was spotty. Lots of time between our three courses. Desserts are very limited. I had the chocolate cake and it was OK. They only offer 3 desserts and some ice cream. I would expect those three desserts to be amazing. I would go back and see if I could have a better experience since it is a neighborhood restaurant for me.
Great great great
The ambient was lovely! Made of wood and iron! Awesome contrast of colors white with wood. List of wines is excellent. We had the 3 courses menu where you share the salad and the pasta but you have your own entree and you have your own dessert. This was perfect to taste everything at a very good price. Service was perfect.
