We fell in love with Cerulean! We had always wanted to try this restaurant as had heard they had awesome sushi. We got way more than sushi! We had a party of six on New Year's Eve and had a lovely, quaint table on the enclosed wood floor porch where we had a beautiful view of the lake channel and had the luck of witnessing a beautiful snowfall. The porch lighting was perfect. One suggestion I would make is to dim the lights in the restaurant itself-way too bright to be romantic or enchanting. Our Taylor Swift look alike waitress was sweet and very knowledgable.
Now the best part: The FOOD! 3 words: A-MAZ-ING. The sushi was the best we have ever had, the sparkling wine, perfect (got 2 bottles!) and the entrees superb! The sea bass was so flavorful and perfectly proportioned in size and sauce ratio. Everyone else raved about their entrees as well. My husband and I are thinking about going back just for a meal of sushi sometime too as it was that fresh and tasty. Dessert were devine. I had looked at the menu ahead of time and am a sucker for anything pumpkin so I already knew I would get the pumpkin mascarpone ceylon dessert! Ahhh, heaven. However in addition to that we tried our friends gelato as it sounded like such an unusual flavor and we are lovers of gelato ever since a trip to Italy. Popcorn Gelato with butterscotch sauce. It was fabulous and a perfect amount to sweeten the palate after such a flavorful meal.
The only complaint I have is the checks were a little messed up. We had 3 separate checks and some things were on other's that should have been on a different bill, but no fear, we just paid them all at once and worried about dividng later as our experience had been so pleasant we did not want to complain.
Overall, run to this unique dining experience in charming Winona Lake, you will not be sorry and you will be impressed that this area in Indiana has such a wonderful dining experience.
