We have dined here several times, dinner is always good, but husband prefers a nice view. Menu is French cuisine mostly.

We used Open Table to find The Cellar. We were looking for a nice meal with good wine. The Cellar delivered for us. The wine great. They staff helped walk us through options. The special that evening was a filet. It was prepared perfectly. We had mac and cheese along with mushrooms as sides. Both were prepared perfectly.

We visited The Cellar for the first time the other night. It was a great experience. Our Waiter, Jimmy R., was very attentive and knew the menu (both drinks and food) inside and out. We had a couple of drinks (Arctic Rose and Marco Polo) which were excellent. The food was exceptional (Chateaubriand, etc) and was perfectly cooked to order.... More

The wife and I had a wonderful dinner of Chateaubriand that was outstanding. Started with an excellent cheese platter, split wedge and finished with their signature soufflé. Service was excellent. Here are constructive comments, beef was tender and ample portions, but undercooked from our request but not enough to send back. If you want medium-rare, order medium. Onion soup was... More

We had an amazing dinner here last week. I had the duck and my husband had the steak and both were delicious... but my fav thing by far was the lobster bisque! The only thing that was just ok was the chocolate souffle... other than that everything else was really good! This place is a bit pricey but well worth... More

"One of a kind?" Yes, somehow they manage to stay in business. That's "one of a kind." The bar graph explains it well enough. The consumers have voting results all over the place. Appears their inconsistency is equal. You don't know what you're going to get. They're like a blind date. Looks good, but be cautious.

Dark and quite. Great wine selection and the Ossobuco was the best I've ever had. Service is attentive but a little pretentious and the atmosphere was a little stuffy.

used to be very pleasant, but they have gone downhill. our last experience was just plain uncomfortable. staff was inattentive and verging on rude. food was mediocre and way over priced. we haven't been back since. they seem to be relying on the physical atmosphere, which is nifty, much more than great food and exemplary service with decent pricing.

My wife and I have eaten all over the world. The cellar is one of those places that is unique. In a world of corporate cookie cutter restaurants , it is nice to know that places like The Cellar still exsist.
