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.

I went here for New Year's Eve and had the Sea Bass. It was absolutely amazing! The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the service is wonderful!

Recently hosted some business colleagues for dinner. Even though I have eaten here many times, it continues to be hard to believe such a world class dining experience could exist in Indiana, even more in Winona Lake. This is an excellent ‘farm to fork’ restaurant. Locavores will be thrilled to know the superbly curated menu includes many outstanding selections from... More

Went with family. Nice diverse menu and drinks. My daughter got the best bargain. $6 kids meal was a larger serving of grilled chicken and vegetables. My wife and I had an appetizer, salad and salmon dish. We also split a sushi roll. The dinner (minus drinks) was ~$50. In a "big city/Vegas", I would have paid close to $75-100... More

Unique menu. Would describe food as "healthy" western Asian. Food served in "Bento Boxes." Found the food to be tasty but selection is limited. Lunch is moderately priced.
