Ceron Kitchen is the manifestation of the life long dream of Vicente Ceron. Vicente has had a desire to own a restaurant for as long as he could remember. After years of hard work and success as the owner of construction companies, he is finally realizing his dream. Vicente became friends with Ceron Kitchen Executive Chef Juan Jaquez and their relationship has led them to opening Ceron Kitchen, together. Chef Jaquez has worked in several reputable restaurants throughout the Bay Area as a line cook and head chef. Chef Jaquez presents his take on New American Cuisine at Ceron Kitchen. Chef Jaquez will feature Dinner to begin and will later introduce Brunch and Lunch menus. All will offer combinations of seafood and prime steaks along with his signature octopus dishes. Ceron Kitchen is located on the Westside of Alameda on Webster Street, nearby the old Alameda Navy Base. Vicente Ceron is currently building the campus for space rocket company Astra, just down the street.

    Overpriced and bland food. I rarely ever leave reviews. My wife and I were very disappointed. We were very excited going on, given the acclaim, proximity to our home and the interesting menu. However, at $225 after tax with just one drink each, I struggle at feeling that the value was half that. We may give it another shot given how close we live, but I can’t recommend it to others.

    For a restaurant that hopes to be seen as "high end" they need to clean up some loose ends. NO bread with our meal--ever? C'mon. At these prices (high but not outrageous) you can afford to put something on the table in the "b read" category. And the appetizer portions could be more generous--the fritters that went with the heirloom tomatoes were nice, but there were only two dainty ones. The service was in the hands of a very young woman, ardent but inexperienced. We share entrees (as generally they are too large for one person), and it would have been nice to have been offered a serving spoon/fork to help each of us dole out our portion. And at age 75, we really don't want to be addressed as "you guys." The risotto was very nicely done and the panna cotta dessert also nice and ample. The Burgundy chardonnay was quite nice and quite reasonably priced. Often it's the little things that elevate a restaurant, and Ceron needs to work on the little things if it hopes to become a "destination" restaurant in Alameda..

    I have eaten at the restaurant twice and ordered take-out once. I am so pleased that Alameda has another top notch high quality dining experience. This is a great restaurant to go with a group of four or more. There are so many excellent items for appetizers, entrees, and dessert that you want to share as many of the items as possible. Yesterday evening we enjoyed the calamari, chopped salad, and duck liver for appetizers. I have previously ordered and enjoyed the octopus and the clam chowder. The main dishes have been absolutely delicious. The sea scallops are perfectly prepared with cauliflower & mushrooms. And the Ribeye steak is mouth watering, 16 ounces of beautifully cooked and tender meat served with cheese-crab tortellini and broccolini. Every dessert I have ordered has been equally as delicious. The Ribeye is more than enough food for 2 people if you want to share it. The quality of food matches any that I have eaten anywhere in the Bay Area. The portions are reasonable and in some cases very generous. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but it is a good value when you consider the quality of the meal and presentation. And fortunately for me I have had Jesus as my waiter each time. He is knowledgeable, great at explaining in detail how dishes are being prepared at the restaurant. He's been a superb waiter. I will be going back again with more friends next week and can't wait to try more items on the menu. Although, that Ribeye and those scallops are making me hungry just thinking of them....they were so delicious!

    Excellent service, truly creative and well balanced cocktails, well prepared dishes that are easy to customize, and a great neighborhood should put Ceron Kitchen on anyone's radar to check out and return as a favorite spot. We stopped by for a special occasion (birthday). Staff had gotten the note from OpenTable and were responsive appropriately. We were advised on options, whether we may want to pace our ordering to not get too much (always appreciated). We started with two interesting cocktails, one with scotch, port, lemon juice and more (I won't spoil the details), they were done well. For round two, we spoke to one of the bartenders who created cocktails based on our distinct tastes, always a fun experience. Food was quite good. One dish we had a substitution recommendation of an ingredient (kind of vinegar), and thought the feedback was received with sincerity. Rest of the dishes were tasty. e.g. Salmon moist and just the right amount of crispy on the outside, squash blossom delicate and flavorful. PS: Definitely leave room for desert

    The space looks really nice. They have a large indoor area and the patio has a few tables. The drink menu was great though the drinks are a little pricey. The food was really good. We went for lunch and had the calamari to start and then a spinach salad with chicken and the pork belly sandwich. Everything was delicious. I will definitely go again.

    I’ve been meaning to check out this new restaurant in alameda since reading its rave reviews. Yesterday, my birthday, I finally found the right opportunity. What an experience, from the ambience, to the welcoming atmosphere to the exquisite food. Just to provide fuller context for my comments, I am accustomed to Michelin starred restaurants around the planet and this new spot u likely located on Webster in Alameda of all places, is definitely in that category. World class on the corner! What an exquisite experience. The next time you want to treat your pallete, you could not do better.

    Well the food wasn’t really good. Egg dishes were all similar to a typical diner. Concentrate orange juice, 12pm on Father’s Day and only servicing breakfast dishes. Decor is nice and waitress tried her best. But overall, not impressed. -Karen

    Our server Julie was lovely and incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered the duck, salmon, tomato app, octopus, tiramisu, lemon basil cheesecake, and Paris Brest. All of the food was ok but nothing special especially considering the price point. The restaurant is beautiful and the food could be great but it was just ok.

    We were excited to try this new restaurant. The prices are on the high side, but it is a place for special occasions and a nicer night out. Really nice atmosphere and decor. The food was good (the risotto was a standout, the salmon was fine but nothing special) and the cocktails were great. The service was extremely disappointing, however, and would make us think twice about returning. Our waitress had very little knowledge of the menu (couldn't answer questions and never offered to ask the chef for the info) and had zero urgency in bringing our drinks and food (we waited 10 minutes for her to bring a simple glass of wine after ordering-- she spent most of her time at the kitchen computer or hostess stand) and generally seemed really out of it. We really hoped to make this one of our new favorite spots, but for this price point, Ceron Kitchen needs to step up its service if it wants customers to return.

    The most expensive restaurant in city of Alameda. Menu changed often, nice presentations, but not oustanding. Service is inconsistent, could be rushing. Some of the wines in the wine list, i could find in Safeway or Costco at $10/bottle, but paid $11/gls. There's a lot of works to be done there.

    Ceron Kitchen's menu looks absolutely amazing. But despite having a ton of dishes that combine lots of delicious ingredients, the finished product was just kind of "meh". And the appetizer portions were pretty small. We arrived at 7:30. The restaurant was like 20% full. We didn't leave until almost 10 pm. That's pretty slow.

    We love the space but the service could be more attentive. Our food was hit and miss, which shouldn't be the case at this price point. Really enjoyed the king salmon. The margherita pizza was quite bland and could have used a bit of seasoning. On the other hand, the aquachiles were oversalted. Hopefully the food will improve, as this space could be a hit.

    Our server seemed very nice but she was somewhat lacking in experience for what it takes for a high end restaurant. Drinks arrived at an appropriate time. We ordered 2 different bottles of wine. One bottle arrived when we were half done with the food. She was attempting to open the screw off cap with a wine opener. She then poured me a full glass of wine. The other bottle never arrived until we were done and it was presented by the bartender. We declined. Pork chop was well prepared with interest, appeal and was very tasty. The sliders need more on the plate than just meat and bun. Calamari delicious with attractive presentation. Scallops were tasty but beurre blanc needed lemon and a touch of salt. We did not expect to be disappointed by this restaurant.

    I absolutely loved taking my husband to Ceron for his birthday. The only thing I wasn’t to happy about was I mentioned that it was his birthday on the reservations but there was no mention off it when we got there. Most restaurants will bring out a small dessert for birthdays. The food was all delicious and I would recommend. The tuna tartare was delicious except for the salmon roe which may be an acquired taste
