Great place for fine dining. Need to start with the appetizer, our server Melanie (the best server ever) suggested “The Cobia” and it was AMAZING... our entry plates where exquisites “lobster & sword fish”. But something that was surprising great was the desert, ufff, “the fig cake” something the everyone need to try !!!!

Great place, super recommended.

Made a reservation, arrived early, were told our table wouldn’t be ready until reservation time, so we went to grab a drink at the bar. Had to call up to the hostess stand 5 minutes after our reservation time and they finally said that it would be 5 more minutes. Hostess did not come to seat us for 15 more minutes and then sat us in a less than ideal spot considering there were actually 4+ tables for two available. This experience was extremely annoying. Amazing service from bartender Adam and server Cameron and the rest of wait staff saved the experience. The small charcuterie board was actually very generously sized and delicious. The two pastas we ordered were tasty and as expected. Pistachio gelato and lychee rose sorbet were on point, but we did not really save enough room to fully enjoy them. Bottle of wine was great.

I like the space. The food is good but not great. As a whole the staff is very attentive, happy and accommodating but the timing between drink orders and delivery and food courses was slow or exaggerated.

The service was poor. We were a party of six and didn't see our server much. It seems like we were invisible. The food portion was too small and my scallops were too salty. I won't consider going there again and won't recommend it to a friend.

Comfortable place despite being in the heart of Buckhead. Noteworthy archetecture in side -- definitely go upstairs to look down on the entryway and dining areas. Service is excellent--helpful but not pushy, no attempt to upsell. A bit noisy despite high ceilings. Food very good but not spectacular, although the smoked mushrooms side dish was worth five stars plus. Likely will come again to show a friend a special and memorable evening.

We went to St. Cecilia for my wife's birthday. It was outstanding - food, service, customer care. The clientele was younger and so the noise level was a little higher. But it was made up for with outstanding food and service. I would highly recommend St. Cecilia.

Second time visiting St. Cecilia and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The only reason it received 4 stars for ambiance is due to the noise level - at times hard to carry on a conversation. Overall, it has become one of my favorites in Atlanta!

Our family dinner was the ultimate in a great dining experience. From the lovely, cordial host, to the smiling and accommodating bartender all the way to our fabulous server, Landon; we could not have asked for more. The food was delicious (especially the clam and lobster entree) and perfectly timed for drinks and conversation. Landon was knowledgeable and helpful with good descriptions and recommendations with all food, drinks and wine choices.
Overall it was a scrumptious, relaxing and fun dining experience. We will be back again and gladly recommend St. Cecilia to friends. Thank you St. Cecilia, Landon and all the staff. You made our celebration a delightful and memorable evening that we have been happily talking about for
days!

We were greeted by everyone from the valet to our server and everyone in between! Such a lovely room - plenty of room to enjoy your meal and not on top of other guests. The food! Incredible- swordfish, striped bass and lobster and clams were standouts! Don’t skip dessert! It was worth the 4.5 mile run the next day. Wine list was very good! The service was perfect! They do not skip a beat! Highly recommended!

This place was recommended to me by a colleague. My wife and I were in Atlanta for a quick getaway and decided to eat dinner here. I can't say enough good things about this place. Apparently the owner has multiple outstanding restaurants in the Atlanta area, and this would certainly be one of them. From the hostess to the bartender and especially our server Cameron, everything was first class. The location is great, and the interior is beautiful without being over the top. The butter lettuce salad was one of the best I've had, and the homemade pasta was the best I've had outside Italy. I only give them a slight knock on the value because of the wine markup, but you'll find that in any nice restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were here for a birthday and the service was impeccable. I placed in the notes about the birthday and our waitress came right to the table and wished a happy birthday. The wine selection was thought out very well and was easy to make a selection. We ordered the meat and cheese plate to share with Sparkling Wine selection 105. The prosciutto with honey comb and cheese with the fresh bread was amazing, a small board can handle 2 to 4 people if used as an appetizer. For dinner we had the squid ink pasta, risotto, and the mushrooms. Everything was delicious. We ended the night with and orange creme, basically orange flan. We enjoyed every bit and felt very well attended with out being annoyed, which can be a challenege in the service industry. We will be back soon.

The bar service is excellent, they are knowledgeable, pleasant, true professionals. A true pleasure. The food was very good, atmosphere was fantastic. Our server once seated was good not great. Extremely slow with delivery. Not attentive. Our reservation was later in the evening, the restaurant was pretty quiet (I'm sure we missed the crowd) there was really no reason that the server was not only missing but non-attentive.

Food was very good. I had the agnolotti and the only criticism was that it needed to be meatier. The filling was a bit to creamy for me. The sauce was good. My wife had the bucatini and it was delicious. Pasta was cooked perfectly al dente. Bread was ok, probably not the best I've had. The salumi board was good, very fresh. Wine selection was extensive. Service was good and location is unique. Highly recommend for any occasion.
