Have eaten here three times and have not been disappointed on any visit. Especially like dining in the grotto, as it is very private. One of the priciest places in O.C., but as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for. One of the nicest places for an intimate night out.

This is our favorite place to eat in Fullerton. Fun location under the ground and designed by the same men who designed pirates of the Caribbean so it has a cool cave look. 5 star service both in the restaurant and bar. If you are looking for a more formal dinner make a reservation or call about walk in to... More

We went for my birthday as they serve chocolate souffle. We were seated in the booth that Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor (the second time). Tried the specialty pumpkin drink and it was delicious, Split the lobster bisque w/hubby and for our main course had the chateaubriand for two. Awesome!!! Considering we had 3 drinks, coffee and dessert, with... More

This was my first time to eat here, after 20+ years of hearing people RAVE about it. We came with a group - there was 12 of us total- so perhaps that was part of the problem. What I do know is that the menu is appealing, but the service wasn't able to accommodate our group seamlessly. My husband ordered... More

Love the cellar for ambiance, food and service. My husband and I are regulars at least once a month!! We celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and any day there. Excellent Crafted Coctails and extensive wine list. Try it!

Even though the dress code was stated to be "business casual" there were several tables around us where diners were wearing hoodies and baseball caps. The waitress was pleasant but the service was slow. The Chateaubriand was excellent but the Caesar salad was the worst I have ever had. Overall we were disappointed with our dining experience and don"t plan... More

My wife is a big fan of Disneyland, so the moment she found out there was a bar/restaurant designed by the same team that made Pirates of the Caribbean I knew I would have to take her. Hidden away in an underground location Downtown Fullerton you will find this intimate European style gem. Typically when we go we order their... More

A very easy review: Service 10 out of 10. Food 10 out of 10. Ambience 10 out of 10. Overall experience 10 out of 10. This was my first visit despite having lived in Fullerton for 2 years. After booking on Open Table I received a call from The Cellar confirming and also was asked if a special occasion was... More

I don't know what happened to this place since we were here two years ago. But it's changed. We went with another couple. We raved about this place to them and were so happy to share the experience. The ambiance is still nice, dark and cozy. We ordered 4 glasses of wine, nothing special. Our drinks did not come for... More

If you are looking for someplace different for fine dining, look to the Cellar in downtown Fullerton. Reservations recommended, extensive wine offerings along with cuisine and service fit for royalty. Class act, refined and well trained staff. The sommelier was charming as was his historical and sometimes hysterical stories offered. Be sure to sweep by the E.Taylor/R.Burton table. Finish the... More
