“Outstanding Unique Flavors for Northern Indiana”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My wife and I dined here August 18th 2012. This was our 4th time or so and it was excellent as always. Unqiue ingredients and flavors that you won't find anywhere else in this area. We dined on sushi and 3 different tapas.

My only gripe is the tapas portions can be small sometimes considering the price but I've never been let down flavor wise.

“How RUDE!!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Met friends last year at Cerulean and had a very nice experience. Made a reservation for 8 people on the patio again for last night and could not believe how rude the MANAGER was to our party. The weather was extremely stormy and the patio only has screens. The patio flooded and basically we were told your out of luck for getting a table! No apologies or we'll see what we can do, nothing! When I asked a server who the manager was, it was the young woman who told us we were out of luck! So the 8 of us, not being from the area were left standing there. (they were also 25 minutes late seating us for OUR reservation then we stood for another 30 minutes trying to figure out where to go!) I totally understand bad weather, but being more respectful would have made a bad situation better! As it was, we found a new favorite!! The Boathouse right down the road was INCREDIBLE!!!

“Best place in town”
Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

If you go to Warsaw Indiana the pickings are slim. What a surprise to find this restaurant fiver mutes away. Outstanding fish. Dinner was terrific and we went back for lunch. Bento boxes with fish and three other choices. Everyone was pleased.

“Fabulous Entrees - Excellent Sushi - Delightful FULL Bar”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We love Cerulean - The restaurant has a wonderful menu. As a starter, I love the Mesclun from Course ONE - with gorgonzola cheese and caramelized walnuts. The menu consists of only 10 main entrees but most of them are just amazing. From Course THREE - The Artic Char is perfectly prepared and is served with delicious homemade fettucini and pistachios. The Lobster Ravioli is just AMAZING. The Sea Bass is excellent - the Beef Tenderloin is fantastic...and my husband loves the Pork Tenderloin. The Sushi is also delicious - We eat here often and have never been disappointed. A previous review indicated that there wasn't a full bar. Cerulean has a full bar and an excellent Spirits menu and an outstanding selection of craft beers and wines. We also love the Cerulean Garden - which offers an outdoor bar with a short menu of Tapas that are prepared in full view in the outdoor kitchen. In the garden, the Chicken Burger is truly amazing. The Scallop is perfectly prepared - and the Charcuterie Board always offers unusual meats and sausages.
The customer service is excellent - and the staff is very friendly and attentive. If you are in the Winona Lake area... Cerulean is not to be missed!
