Best Staff of the Hotel and Area!

The full menu was great so after the first day we opted to purchase breakfast instead with no regrets. The staff at the restaurant were outstanding.

It was surprisingly terrific food, much higher quality than most hotel restaurants I have eaten at and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. The design of the restaurant was also very unique, the beer and wine choices were better than most and they had nearly every top shelf liquor. Tomas and Marybeth were absolutely terrific.

and at a hotel, too. Well, Ceres is a surprising find. If the weather is good, sitting outdoors feels relaxing and really "outdoorsy," fresh air and a nice view. I have gone there several times, with friends and with clients as well. The carpaccio is outstanding, and I am not a fan in general. Excellent wine choices. Service can oscillate... More

After driving from Princeton, NJ, we decided to dine in while staying at the Beechwood Hotel. The restaurant was a stellar surprise...my husband enjoyed the pork shank and the beef carpaccio was "to die for." Our cocktails were equally wonderful. This is a delightful hidden gem...very unexpected in a hotel setting!

We won't be giving this restaurant a third try. After a disappointing dinner in May for Mother's Day, we thought that maybe lunch would be better. The hostess was grumpy; the bare tabletop had an odd coating that felt slightly tacky and seemed to have threads from (nighttime?) tablecloths stuck to it. We would have enjoyed our food more if...

We have been going to Ceres since it opened. Fabulous breakfast for the family, great bar for a night cap and wonderful outdoor seating and dining. My husband and I came this summer with another couple. It was a beautiful summer evening for a relaxed dinner outside. Thank goodness we were not in a rush because our waiter was also... More

Unexpected goodness from inside a hotel. Lots of seating enables the hostess to seat you apart from other guests. Nice modern looking bar area. Asked the bar about the lack of Rye Whiskey on my last trip. They now have an excellent one. The service was great. Fresh warm baguette served with oil for dipping. I had the bouliabase. Excellent...

We just happened upon this restaurant by accident and were so happy we did!! The meal was delicious, the service attentive, our waitress Brianna was a delight! We sat out on the patio and it was perfect!! If you find yourself in Worcester try Ceres Bistro!

We were there for breakfast. Our server was more focused on closing the buffet line and wiping down tables than taking care of us. Repeated requests for coffee and water as she was bustling by. The food however, was very good.

Our dinner here was excellent, for the first time since dining gluten-free I was able to enjoy an appetizer and dessert with my meal. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was upscale yet comfortable, and the service was also outstanding. We chose to dine inside, though are already planning to return for drinks and appetizers outdoors in the future.
