Indoor bar during the winter seasons is great for a couple or a large party! We had a great time and cannot wait until the summer time patio.

Posting the brunch menu. Couldn't find it anywhere when I was looking and finally just had to go see for myself. The food was amazing, the staff was polite. It does get a little loud in there at times but I think it's just because the place is packed for brunch. I've not been able to get a table without a reservation, but if you com ... read more

This might be the best kept secret on Elmwood. The menu has so many options!  The stuff banana peppers are absolutely amazing.  The best I have ever had.  The Chicken Cecelia was sptcataulr as was the Pasta Olivia.  We will be back!

Was good food. Disappointed that we went to brunch on Sunday at 2. Website and menu both said they are open until 5p for brunch on Sundays and until 3p on Saturdays. However they said they closed at 3 on Sundays, brunch was rushed. Great mimosas but not likely to return.

Wouldn't go back except for drinks. Food was just ok. Definitely no passion on the kitchen side. Service was poor as well.

So, I don't know when they've increased their bottomless mimosas prices, but it must've been recently. Like really, $15?! You can buy a whole bottle. I used to go here with new friends each time because the mimosas were inexpensive. However, I may be taking them elsewhere.

Outdoor Patio
The only thing we like about this place is the large patio bar area they have in the summer months. Otherwise, the food is unremarkable. We stopped ordering food altogether there and only just drinks because it was always so disappointing. It leaves us always...More ... read more

This is my favorite brunch spot in Buffalo, hands down. The bottomless mimosas are always a crowd pleaser but the brunch menu is truly fantastic. At this point I have tried several of the options - there is something for everyone. The photo is of the brunch burger. It is cooked to your liking and then topped with bacon, lettuce, and ... read more

Love Love This place!I came here for my friend birthday brunch two weeks ago and everything went well.

It took a very long time for our food ... read more

This place never fails me for Brunch. Just had Brunch with my NYC family Sunday and they loved it. Stephanie was such a good waitress. Very attentive and checked on us the entire time.

I would say over the course of the years I've been going there for brunch it's been pretty much on point. I'm unsure why their breakfast potatoes are almost always luke warm though. they taste good but would be much better if they were hot. Also the new 15 dollar price for the bottomless mimosas is really no longer a deal. They have ... read more

First-rate mimosas, and the food's plentiful and good too
Went here for Sunday brunch with the ladies while in Buffalo for a long weekend. Main attraction for 2 of us was the promise of 'bottomless mimosas.' Because of health concerns, I was the only one to order just one mimosa -- perhaps it was...More ... read more

Highly recommend Cecelia's to anyone looking to try something new. The atmosphere is modern and upbeat. Staff is friendly and helpful. My boyfriend and myself usually get the spaghetti dinner and chicken Alfredo. Both absolutely delicious. Portion sizes are huge too.

Good Chicken Piccata/Amazing Bread! Cool patio.
The bread? Must be their pizza crust. It’s delicious (and complimentary). Truly outstanding. Chicken piccata (with a side of spaghetti/red sauce and julienned vegetables) was also very good. While not amazing, the service was not bad. Great patio/cozy vibe inside. But that bread? Cannot compliment...More ... read more

I had the chicken Milanese to go. It was so delicious! It could have used more balsamic over the lettuce and on the chicken. The chicken was perfect. I like my chicken Milanese with thin sliced chicken and this was exactly that! I will certainly be coming back here!

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.

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.
