We drove 2 hours to Buffalo for a night out in town, and our friends recommended Cecelia's. We started with drinks at the bar, as we were waiting for part of our group of friend. Bartenders were very nice, and we were very satisfied with the drinks. we were seated at the Patio, which does not required reservations, but were ready to have a good time, and nothing would damage our first night out in Buffalo. Our waitress was very nice, and the food was average. We asked the waitress to bring the bill to my partner and I, as we wanted to treat our friends. Once they learned about, they wanted to have more drinks, and why not an after meal drink, or two are perfect to end a nice evening... We placed the order for drinks, and within few minutes the Hostess came to our table, and with a not very friendly approach, informed us that if we wanted to have those drinks, we will have to have them standing in the patio area, or in the bar area. Initially, we did not bother, as we had all the intentions of having a good time. But... It came back to us that it was not appropriate for us to end our dinner... Standing... What about if we wanted more drinks?I will think twice to return to Cecelia's, specially if I have to drive 2 hours back and forth...
I have always enjoyed the food, ambiance, and personal service recieved. My comment is to the latest commercials being aired. "Top Cuts?" Feel they are beneath Russell Salvatore and the institution he has made in Western N.Y.. Please pull the advertisment.... it is a disgrace to a Western N.Y. Landmark and is not needed.
II am from Buffalo but currently live in Houston,TX.I do miss Buffalo's food and especially the wonderful bakery at Caramics. I started ordering pies for my family in Buffalo last year to celebrate their birthdays. Five stars from my family and me!
I eat here frequently. The food and service are great! I'm Italian, so I know Italian food. Pasquale's is almost as good as home, without having to cook.
