Great food at this quaint restaurant! The tater tot appetizer was fantastic! Our server was not quite up to par but would still recommend the restaurant.
My husband and I were in Appleton to visit friends. Left to our own devices on a damp, windy hint-o-winter Saturday night, we wandered down College Avenue and found ourselves here. What luck. We sat at the cozy, friendly bar. We ordered wine, had a yummy and generous Wisconsin cheese plate, and considered ourselves fortunate indeed. The menu is limited,... More
Great music and drinks. Upscale. Bartender knew his stuff.Nice subdues atmosphere allowing conversation.Good jazz.

Cena Restaurant has a very creative menu - the Chicken Roulade is wonderful and their fish specials never disappoint. We dine there on evenings with live music and the jazz we have listened to has added enjoyment to our date nights. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere upbeat.

Food is delicious.. atmosphere is great.. waitstaff are kind and prompt, what more could you ask for? This is one of the rare places where my husband and I will often order the SAME meal because we just can't bear to share the scallops - they are divine.
We were on a business trip to Appleton and did not relish eating at another steakhouse or Italian "eatfest." What a pleasant surprise to find a gourmet restaurant only a few blocks down College.
