Has the name changed? The decor has not! The menu was limited. The service was fair. The medium burger was raw. The pumpkin squash soup was like tasteless oatmeal. They could not find the crime brûlée. Disappointed, will not return.

My rating does not reflect the current Ceres, so please do not be mislead. It only describes my anticipation of the future for this restaurant. Having eaten a few times at Ceres and been singular unimpressed with the food, and especially the service, I was...More

Serene, sophisticated, and inspired by the Goddess of the Harvest, Ceres Bistro celebrates the seasons and delivers only the freshest ingredients to your table. Ceres is open seven days per week for casual fine dining during breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves a late night menu in the bar. The décor is warm and inviting with soft curving booths and beautiful views to our outdoor gardens. A floor to ceiling glass wall brings the outside in and opens to the patio for dining or enjoying a cocktail at the outdoor bar. The main dining area seats 90 and features a magnificent stained glass ceiling dome from the late 1800's that transcends time.
