I've been to Cecelia's in the past, but just checked it out for Dining Out for Life yesterday. Glad that they were participating as a 50% donor. We enjoyed the garlic plate that included bread, caponata, olive tapenade , goat cheese, hummus, and was fantastic. I ordered the cheese ravioli with red pepper sauce which was very tasty.

We also snacked on the chicken pizza which was hot but it took pretty long to come out. We were the only other patrons in the restaurant besides two ladies to our ... read more

The Martinis were great and the food was very good! Only downside was that most of the cocktails of the menu could not be made.

Went for brunch recently. It was just ok. The food isn't bad, but it's not incredible either. The worst part of my experience was the service.

I went here a few weeks ago when I did not have Yelp yet.

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.
