St. Cecilia Ratings and Reviews
My experience at St Cecilia wasn't as good as I expected considering all the good reviews. In our server's defense, he was quite busy with 7 tables, however I consider it a sign of bad management when a server is allowed to have 7 tables in the first place. There were multiple instances when our server or our server's assistant would stop by without asking whether-or-not we wanted refills on our drinks. This was very annoying especially when our cheese platter was dropped off and our wine glasses were empty and the server didn't offer to bring us more wine until after we had finished eating. I thought the food was just "ok." The dish our server suggested, "Agnolotti" was made with seemingly stale pasta tortellini and was served with a Demi-glace sauce that tasted like it came from a frozen concentrate.
Dined here with my parents last night for an early Mother's Day celebration. Our server, Dori, was excellent. Drinks were wonderful, especially my mother's Manhattan. The meat and cheese platter was divine--we ordered the small version and it was PLENTY for three people. We all had fish entrees: the monkfish was very good by Mom's halibut was the real winner. The only miss was the roasted wild onions with fig vinaigrette. Sounded good in theory but they included the whole stalk of the onion, uncut, and they were impossible to serve, cut, even CHEW. Dori notified the kitchen and was kind enough to remove them from the bill. In any case, we had a great time. When the sun went down and they parted the curtains overlooking Phipps Plaza and Peachtree St, it added another dimension to this cool, well-designed spot. Probably too pricey to return regularly but good for special occasions.
We loved our experience at St. Cecelia! We were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary and really enjoyed the atmosphere, the hand-crafted drinks and the time to linger and enjoy conversation. Our waiter was very helpful to explain cocktails and menu items. And the pace of the evening was perfect. We felt like we had the right amount of time between courses and didn't feel rushed in any way. We would highly recommend!
Went there for wife's birthday. Had infant. Would not recommend Cecilia for infants. Only because the Miocene level. Was so high our baby got nervous. Main courses were good, so cudo's for that. When it came to desert (only 3 options and they were not even Italian), they were out of ingredients to provide the one we chose.
Would recommend this as a first date or maybe a place to meet. Not the right atmosphere for a romantic dinner.
The food is simply divine. I am not a big pasta fan but I ordered the 5 course pasta (everyone on the table has to order the same if you do) and the dishes on offer were amazing. I loved the squid ink pasta - still thinking about it 3 days later. The service and attention was top notch - our hostess (sorry I forgot her name) was superb and very knowledgeable. She explained each dish as it came in in full and impressive detail. Oh and the wine list is pretty reasonably priced.
The space is gorgeous! The service was fantastic! The food was fine. I was just expecting to be more blown away by the meal. The olive focaccia was yummy. The octopus starter was okay. I've had better elsewhere in town. The agnolotti was really delicious- definitely the best thing we had. The branzino (fish) was nice. Cocktails were fine but not amazing. We went for our anniversary and overall had a very nice time. I just wish the food was more memorable. Loved our server (can't remember his name- sorry)!
The best meal in Buckhead so far. We moved to Atlanta and made it our goal to try a new restaurant every week. It is a little more expensive than your average restaurant, but really...it's Buckhead! Great location right on Peachtree, but the best thing about the place...every bite that I took!!! You do that, "oh my gosh", head tilted back, eyes closed thing because it's just that good. My husband and I declared it our best restaurant experience to this date. The octopus appetizer was amazing and this comes from someone who lived in Japan for 5 years. Not chewy at all! The halibut was a tad dry, but still delicious and the short rib ravioli, like nothing that you've ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant and would go back for lunch and order just the octopus. Great service. We got the "anniversary table", we were told. Views of Peachtree and quite in the corner. Couldn't have been better!!
It was our first time visiting St. Cecilia since it was rebranded from Bluepointe several years ago. The interior is spot on perfect - light, bright and airy, and the cuisine was creative, tasty and nice presented. Joshua was our server. He was patient with my mom and her friend and did an excellent job taking care of us.
On a recent vacation we planned a stop in Atlanta. I had read where this restaurant was a finalist for the James Beard Award for decoration. It was indeed very beautiful. The food was excellent. The server was very knowledgeable about menu items as well as suggesting wine and cocktail options.
We heard great things about this restaurant so decided to go for Easter. We were very disappointed. The menu was limited, it took forever to get the drinks we ordered and had to reask for them, our food portions were very small and by the time we got them cold, the risotto was like muck and the shrimp tasted old and fishy, and I ordered a salad that I never got. I guess we won't be going back!
One of the best meals I have ever had in Atlanta. Great, bright, light modern decor. Loved the ambience the minute we walked in. Went for Easter brunch/lunch. 3 generations were represented, and all three generations agreed "the best". Fresh pasta made in house, fresh made (in house) focaccia (so delish we ordered another one just for my grandson), Roast chicken, TAGLIOLINI, RICOTTA GARGANELLI. Each delectable. Service, and I do mean "service" was top notch. Waitress, manager and general staff couldn't do enough to accommodate us. We heartily recommend St. Cecilia's to one and all.
My girlfriend and I went to St. Cecelia this past Saturday for a date night. I have been to this restaurant before when it first opened, but I wasn't thoroughly impressed. I am glad that I went back, my girlfriend had never been so she wanted to try it, because the second time around was significantly better. The bartenders were friends and made good drink/wine recommendations. Our waiter was Drew and he was awesome!! We told him the type of wine we drink at home and he recommended an awesome bottle for us. Drew's food recommendations were also on point. The squid ink pasta was the best thing we tried, but all the food was really good. We will be going back for the squid ink pasta and requesting to be seated in Drew's sections so he can recommend more delicious things for us to try.
