This restaurant offers a strong, Japanese inspired menu coupled with high quality American favorites. We dined on the Japanese side of the menu and found flavorful, high quality selections in front of us. Two in our party complemented their meals with warm and inviting coconut and squash based soups. Decor is inviting and understated. The acoustic challenge of extensive wood... More

Great flavors. Visited for a special event. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Special details that made us feel very special. Just wonderful. FYI, not an inexpensive meal, but the portions are nicely sized.

This is a good place but it's not great. Setting is beautiful and service is good but it's more hyped than what it really is. Snobby in a way. Sushi still needs to be better but some dishes are just magnifique. Would not doubt to go back and have a Moscow mule again. Good bar service

Visited for dinner Saturday 10/1 for the first time. Had read several positive reviews and will add myself to the list of satisfied diners. Our sushi starter was fresh and good. A more unique starter was the cheese sampler, we tried a board of 3 cheeses, each appropriately paired with it's own side and some unusually tasty toast. I had... More

Upscale indoor dining with sushi bar. More casual dining outside. Have unique menu selections. Located in an arts village with a water view.

I had a bento box lunch featuring seared tuna w/lime-pepper sauce, seven spice & sesame seeds on sticky rice and for side dishes the udon noodles w/citrus vinegar, the spinach greens w/peanuts garnished...

Very good bento box lunch. Good choices. I had the pork bun. Nicy spicy sauce. Enjoyed the edamame appetizer.

I live about 35 minutes away from Cerulean but find a way to eat there at least 2 or 3 times per year. Every experience is awesome. The food is delightful, the staff is wonderful, and the location is excellent. There is a lengthy drink menu of beers, wines, and unique cocktails. The food is delicious and presented in a... More

The setting was pleasant. We sat on a beautifully screened porch overlooking the boat slips of Winona Lake. The service was efficient, and the overall atmosphere was inviting with a touch of elegance. My wife had the sweet pork buns. If was supposed to be a fusion of sweet St Louis bar-b-que with Chinese buns. As it worked out, it... More

Excellent service, everything was perfectly cooked and presented beautifully. Highly recommend the cheese board appetizer and the pear blossom cocktail. My husband ordered the special of the evening, which was clams. So many restaurants overcook the clams making them chewy, but not Cerulean. They were perfect.
