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 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.

Our friends in Ashford CT had invited us to their annual 4th of July celebration, and we had planned to go. However, Hurricane Arthur changed all that. We did not want to get stuck in any downpour on a freeway, and so stayed in Worcester that day. In the evening, it was still raining hard, we were hungry, but were... More

The place is not inexpensive but the food and service were excellent. Sitting outside on a fine evening with my wife, son and his girlfiend was special. No bugs and quite comfortable. Everyone raved about what they had; lamb,tuna and my boullibase was delicious. Looking forward to going back when they have Mitch Chikour and his band there on July... More

Thank you Andrea for your excellent service during our business lunch today (6/17). Your attention to detail in an unobtrusive way was very much appreciated.

Ceres used to be a favorite, but I've now had two very disappointing meals. During my last meal, the salad was inedible; full of sand. The crispy shallots were soggy and cold. The service is wonderful; very attentive. But the food is a huge disappointment. It will be a while before I go back.
