My family and I frequently dine here for special occasions, and Celestial never disappoints. The food is prepared with just the right seasonings and artistically presented. The ambiance and service are too notch. A great place for a family gathering, romantic dinner, friends' lunch, or night out. You will not be disappointed.

Celestial Cafe is one of our local favorites. We go there pretty consistently for special occasions and sometimes just because. Their selections are varied and wonderfully tasty. My personal favorites are the chicken and peach Marsala, and the rack of ribs., enjoyed on alternate visits or depending on my whim. The owner is usually in the kitchen wielding his magic... More

In my 30 years of dining out I have never been treated so disrespectfully at a restaurant. I suppose if we read the recent reviews, we may have avoided a truly horrible experience that my wife and I are actually still quite shaken about. It was the night of a URI game and the restaurant was busy and we explained... More

Been there three times now, the food looked great, but no taste, most of my dinners or one lunch the food was 'bland'. The place is too noisy, I could hear other tables talk clearly and just 'loud' place. The food is pricy and our wait staff on two of the three occasions were not friendly, seemed that if you...

Great service but this time for lunch maybe different. The food is usually good but I still will go back.

I have been here quite a few times as it is one of only a few restaurants in this area. The staff and service are great. Sometimes I think the chef tries to do too much and would be better served by letting fewer great ingredients (which he does choose) shine. I have sometimes been disappointed but other times it...

We had the grilled pear salad which was delicious! The lentil soup was good, but not what I was expecting...still, quite good. We split a thin crust pizza which was very light and delicious.
