I've never written a review before, but my experience at Cedric prompted me to do so. I enjoyed the location and ambiance, and the food was decent. However, the young French waitress working on Sunday night was very rude--my dish was served with an extra item that was not advertised on the menu, and when I asked for a substitution (I was allergic to the item not advertised on the menu), she charged me extra. When I brought this to her attention, she said "of course I charged you extra" and refused to remove the charge without having the manager intervene. The friends I was with are close with the manager and chipped in for the substitution, so whatever. But I reiterate--the young French waitress working Sunday night, January 19, was extremely rude.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
