We went here on Friday, November 18. The live music was really good. We actually were going for one drink, but stayed for a couple more simply to hear the music. The drink selections were quite nice and plentiful. We will go back there.

It's a small bar venue with an classic old school style. The music can make the place hop. You can't go wrong with the burger, big enough to split. Great martinis!

The best part of the Cellar Lounge was the music. We heard an amazing salsa-like band who did a great job of getting the crowd going. The food was ok, and I would recommend going to the Cellar Lounge after dinner. The restaurant was loud, and very hard to have an actual conversation.

This is a great bar/restaurant. Great for watching sports or grabbing a late dinner. Next door to South Coast Winery. Cozy coaches, booths and high top tables.

Great place to wrap up a day of wine tasting in this wine country, and if you are wined out great spirits and drinks options. Entertainment is always fun.

We ended up in the cellar Lounge as it was a last minute decision and the Dining room was full, we were not disappointed. The menu was more than we expected for a 'lounge' given the selections and certainly for the portion sizes we were given. Don't overlook the appetizer menu. Deserves another visit at least!

went to the Cellar for a friends birthday and I was impressed with hoe much character the place had. loved the brick wall with the jazz paintings on it. very casual tons of sitting. they had tables as well as couches with center tables. it all depends on what you want to do.. you could either sit at a table...

The cellar lounge never ceases to amaze me. The food is good, the servers are even better!! They treat you like you are important, and if you are a wine club member...even better! I feel like they go out of their way to please you. Ponte is a great place, good food, good service....that is why I keep coming back!!

We are beer drinkers and it was nice that there was a place to get a beer. They gave us glasses so we could walk the beautiful grounds. Décor is well done.
