Monday is martini Monday at Cecelia's where all Martinis are $5. The bartender was so sweet and had great martini recommendations (as usually I am not a fan of martinis). I also tried the calamari which was perfect. Breaded and fried without too much or too little crunch. The spicy sauce served with it did lack in taste and was prett ... read more

We celebrated my daughter's birthday at Cecilia's.The noise level is moderate to high so conversation was difficult. Service was attentive although we waited 20 or more minutes for our food.  My husband enjoyed the lobster and crab Benedict, $18 and the salsiccia pizza, $13, is a favorite of my daughter's. I had the one and only omel ... read more

I can't remember a moment where I didn't have a mimosa in my hand, and the fries were so good. Definitely a place for a good lunch/brunch style eat.

I can't believe I have not written a review for Cecelia! I have been to this place numerous times for the past 10 years. Normally I would give Cecelia's 4.5 stars because food and services are always good and it's a great place for brunch, especially when it's nice out and you can sit out in the patio. The reason I give 3 stars this ... read more

We ate brunch at Cecelia's while visiting Buffalo for Garden Walk. It was a busy Saturday because of the many visitors for Garden Walk. The three of us had a Mimosa Brunch. The food was wonderful, the service was fine, and the outdoor seating in the shade was definitely a plus on a hot Saturday at noontime.
