I was at the bar at Cecelia's ristorante on Saturday evening right before they closed. I ordered the mussels and a Pepsi and quietly enjoyed my meal. I was checked on by the bartender Sarah who was very polite and attentive. She laughed and made small talk. I also was greeted by the host when I entered which makes it more comforting ... read more

Very good for brunch. Restaurant opens at 10 an but the wait is worth it for bottomless mimosas that the waiter keep refilling so no problem there. Plus great brunch selection which is required for bottomless mimosas deal. Overall this place is a good for those brunch lovers looking for a wonderful start for the day.

Hands down one of my top brunch spots. I have never been disappointed with my meal. Offerings from sweet French toast to savory lobster cake eggs Benedict. The brunch burger and the brunch pizza both amazing as well. If the weather is nice hopefully you get a table on the patio. And don't forget $10 bottomless mimosas with a food pur ... read more

Slower than slow service but luckily my girlfriends and I had a lot to catch up on. I have had brunch here many times but never tried the dinner menu. I got the Bolognese. I wasn't a huge fan of the thick flat noodles but overall, I was satisfied. They need at least 2 more bartenders there on a Friday night. It wasn't even brunch bus ... read more

Went for brunch with friends and we all enjoyed the experience. We sat on the patio and that was nice. I had the breakfast pizza with egg and prosciutto ($13). It was delish! I also did bottomless mimosas for an extra ten bucks and got my money's worth. Prices for most items felt right too.

I've been here for dinner a few times and it was amazing. Sorry to say this was my first time here for brunch and it was a tad disappointing. The restaurant was so cold, you couldn't get comfortable the entire time here. The music was blaring, which maybe would've been ok after dinner, but Sunday brunch it definitely wasn't. Unfortun ... read more

This is my favorite brunch spot in all of Buffalo. Definitely my "go-to". You can't beat bottomless mimosas and the brunch menu. I highly recommend their breakfast pizza.

A friend and I attended this place for brunch on Saturday. Initially we called and someone told us they weren't taking any reservations.

Thankfully once we arrived, everything went s ... read more

I've heard so much about this restaurant and I'm so happy I finally gave it a try. The cocktails are great and the apps are awesome too.

Soak it all up with their brunch burger too ... read more

I've been wanting to come to Cecelia's for brunch for awhile. I hear all about their bottomless mimosas, so I had to get on that. Coming for brunch I got their "brunch burger" which had an egg and bacon on it with a side of fries. I will say, my burger was a little dried out for a medium well done burger. My boyfriend got their "hash ... read more

This past Sunday, we went out to Cecelia's for dinner. We had a 7:30pm reservation, but got there a little early. Unfortunately, they were not able to seat us until our reservation time so we went inside for a drink while we waited. At 7:30pm, our table was ready. We requested a table outside since it was still nice out here in Buffa ... read more

Very good food but service was too slow for brunch. We waited a long tine for food causing my daughter to be late for work. I saw a lot of people getting turned away but there were open tables. I’m thinking there was not enough servers on staff.

I'm not a big breakfast eater...but I love their Sunday brunch. They have really good breakfast pizza! Usually order the mimosas with it too. Staff is always really nice and take good care of you. It's also near all the shops, so we usually take a walk after to help not feeling so full!

The patio is where it's at on a nice summer day! Recently I went with a large group and there was no room for us outside. I think the waitress had trouble serving a large group.

Very good brunch spot. The highlight is the bottomless mimosa special.  Cecelia's has a cheery atmosphere and attentive staff. It seemed like the second I finished a mimosa our waitress was at the table! The food was good although not anything exceptional. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend Cecillia's.

Great classic eggs Benedict. Warm and inviting, but the orange juice was not great (maybe only intended for their bottomless mimosas) and coffee was also the worst standard drip.
