The location is so peaceful, the open layout of the restaurant is very inviting. We dined here last month and can't wait to return. This is a very unique dining experience that you will not find anywhere on the Outer Cape. Chef comes out and explains where the local ingredients come from and each dish that he prepares is a few steps away from heaven! This place should not be missed! Staff is on top of their game!

Ceraldi was on my radar. No reservations, busy Sunday nite...tables full at this charming seaside spot behind Harbor Stage Company. No problem! Smiling server ushered us to bar seats, invited us to join the evening's 7 course prix fixe presentation & informed us Chef would be over to personally fill us in on the offerings. Which he did, with enthusiasm, knowledge & humor! It got EVEN better! Food outstanding...flavor packed smoked swordfish carpaccio, an elegant beet flan and a delightful mackerel! The fisherman who brought in the daily catch was right there at the bar with his wife, a friend & their gorgeous new baby....doesn't get fresher than that! Truly convivial evening made more pleasant by laughs with great staff & another couple at the bar. GO!

Hard to fault anything at Michael Ceraldi's recently opened, new Wellfleet location (near the fishing dock). From the moment of being handed a glass of prosecco on entering, all went well. A small location with about 40 seats, our mid-week first-sitting resulted in nicely paced, very attentive service, with the chef and his partner/spouse out front able to oversee every detail. This restaurant is oriented around a single multi-course, prix fixe menu, with wine and small plates sometimes available at the small bar for those who don't want the meal. A real commitment to "local sourcing" was evident in almost every ingredient on a June evening: the results were wonderful. Worth a trip for this dinner! Usually two seatings each evening.

We had a reservation for the 8pm seating on a monday (room wasn't full). This was our first experience at Ceraldi, as well as first experience with such a tasting menu.
The previous seating was a little late, so we received a complimentary glass of prosecco as well as some cheese, nuts and fennel while we waited for our table to be ready.
The chef's care to explain the menu and the origins of ingredients was much welcomed. As for the menu itself, it was exceptionnal, from begining to end. Everything was cooked to perfection and tastes were carefully balanced.
This restaurant is not to be missed in Wellfleet.

It is a chef's dream to serve food in this way, and we are the beneficiaries.

For years we have enjoyed the delicious fresh seafood that Wellfleet offers, but Ceraldi takes every taste up a notch to perfection.

They served on perfectly placed Wellfleet oyster on a bed of salt. It had a Espelette chili oyster sauce on it, that was a strong compliment, and enhanced the taste of the oyster. Close your eyes and enjoy!

We were a table of six last night at the 8 p.m. seating. Our food was magical, the wines were fun, and the staff is perfect. We loved it and will be back.

Bravo.
