Hmmm.  We came here on Saturday before going to the BMFI. The experience was just OK. We were seated in a corner next to a table with loud talkers which made it difficult to have a conversation with my husband.  Disappointing given that the restaurant...More

My friends and I had come here when it first opened several years ago, and were not particularly impressed. However, as it recently got some good reviews, we decided to try it again. There is only a four-course prix fixe menu, which is a lot...More

For some reason we hadn't been to Cerise but went last week & it was delicious. The meal is prefix 4 courses. (Don't worry, it's not too much food). There are a few choices for each course but definitely enough variety for our group to...More

What a find! Cerise is a prix fixe dinner for $59/pp and four outstanding courses - and a BYOB! The menu is lovely - small but with something for everyone - even me, who is a picky eater. Ask to eat upstairs on the kitchen...More

Cerise features contemporary European cuisine inspired by Chef Ben & his wife Elena Thomas' time abroad and love of open-air markets; those found in every neighborhood with fresh produce, game, cheeses and milk and incredible boiling and bubbling dishes from diverse ethnicities. The dishes will highlight the lighter more modern side of European cuisine, and the diversity of dishes represented by the region's varied landscapes. The name 'Cerise' (French for 'cherry'), is inspired by the cherry season that marks the most abundant time of year in Europe's farm regions and markets.Cerise offers guests a four-course prix fixe menu, with several options for each course. Expect to be full, but not over-stuffed, by meal's end! On Wednesdays and Sundays, a three-course prix fixe option will also be available. We are also open for brunch Saturday and Sunday.
