Ceres at the Beechwood

This is a higher end place to dine. Five of us had their breakfast that was way over priced. They gave small portions and the day we went our waitress was terrible. Waited over 10 minutes for coffee, then she forgot the creamer and milk which she brought by another 10 minutes later. Our food... read more

This is the first review I've ever written on TripAdvisor, but I just felt I needed to warn everybody away from this terrible place! I walked in at 1:15 PM this afternoon, and the restaurant was almost empty. I took a seat in the bar, and the waitress brought me water. That's the last I ever saw of her. After... More

If I could write a review without giving this place any stars, I would. We came in expecting a lovely, quiet early lunch for three but our experience was everything short of being lovely. Walking in to the bright, well decorated restaurant, anyone would be fooled, but you quickly realize the standard of this place the moment you are greated... More

It was terrible. The server had no idea what she was doing. The fries were left in a well for clearly way too long and it is extremely overpriced for the crap quality of food they are serving. The only thing that is worth it, is the bar and that's because liquor makes everything bearable

We had dinner here while staying for a wedding. The food was fresh, delicious and well priced. My husband had shrimp scampi over pasta and said it was better than his favorite scampi at home. He also had the French onion soup and side salad and said they were good. I ordered the fresh blackened tilapia and it was cooked... More

I went here on a first date, so that may make my review a little skewed because of the nerves. But I was greated by the host as soon as I walked in, and seated immediately. The waitress came over, asked what we wanted for drinks and had to check back with the bar to see if they had a... More

We visited the restaurant on Father's Day and enjoyed the meal tremendously. The food was delicious and clearly made with fresh ingredients. The Charcutrie was amazing as was the Calamari. I ordered the Rack of Lamb which was delicious and ample in it's portion. The decor was very nice and there is an outdoor seating area (closed when we visited),... More

Since the Boynton was closed, my church friend and I opted to give Ceres a try. Nice selection of wines by the glass. My friend had their 50/50 burger which he said was excellent. I had scallops with roasted veggies and rice. Excellent choice - succulent scallops, and good sides. Nice, manageable portions. Only issue was slow service.

I've dined here previously and have left feeling impressed with the ambiance, service, and food. I recently dined here and was so disappointed. I was here for lunch and there were quite a few empty tables. After our server took our order she seemed to disappear. After 15 minutes or so we received our salads (delicious). She reappeared about 45... More
