We had a perfect lunch at Cerulean on the spur of the moment yesterday. Great flavors & combined with friendly service made for a great mid-day meal. 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.

This is a very urban setting. The menu is very diverse which also includes sushi. They also change with seasonal items. Excellent wine options. Love the porch as long as it's not too hot. This is a must if you are in the area!

We have enjoyed eating at Cerulean many times, but this time was a disappointment. The lunchtime food was excellent as always, but the seating area was deafening. Our group of six reserved at least a day before a table with a view of the water. Regrettably we were seated with a view of the parking lot, and adjacent to tables... More

We are here at the recommendation of family who had been before. It was so delicious! We ate inside but they also have a great porch. They have great cocktails, beer and wine list. The food is incredible. They have bento boxes where you pick and entree and three sides. The Asian noodle salad and cucumbers were both really great... More

Recently I took a friend for lunch at this gem. The bento box is Cerulean's lunch specialty. We picked one main entree and three side dishes. Each dish is a culinary work of art! The flavors and colors are sensory delights! Plus the cost of the lunch is very reasonable. The decor is lovely as well. I am definitely returning... More

I went for dinner, which has a much more limited menu. Dinner options were complicated with odd combinations. It felt as if they put too much effort into being 'unique'. The dinner portions are small with big prices. The lunch menu looks great - I wouldn't mind trying again if I were in the area.
