Great food. Excellent seafood and fish entrees. Smaller portions or regular menu in bar. Bar is a local favorite.

This was our third dinner at Cellar door but back there after 4 years. We were expecting better to be honest. The waiter was great but the food just average.

Definitely not one of the best restaurants in Ridgefield but we do go a few times a year. The kids love the pizza and mac and cheese options in a steakhouse. After dinner we all agreed this place is good but missing the OMG factor. Not sure what that means, but they need to find it fast.

Cellar Door reinvented themselves about two years ago and is no longer an Italian Restaurant. It still has great pizza but it's primary focus is steaks. Very enjoyable!

While the Cellar Door Bistro is not your typical steak restaurant, the quality of its steaks are as good as any you might order in many of the NYC establishments

This is a great restaurant, we had not visited recently and I was encouraged to try the steak. My wife and I shared the Porterhouse, it was excellent, cooked exactly to taste and with a selection of sides and sauces. Our waitress suggested a wine to pair with the steak and i have to say she got it spot on.... More

Been here twice in the past month. Both times the NY Strip, bone -in was awesome. Great bar and seating. Remember the Plaza NY. First class style dining. From a pizza to steak. Probably the nicest in town in terms of decor food and service.

while this was a good steakhouse, the food was not worth the price they were charging. good dry aged beef, not up to nyc quality, for like $250 for two. service old fashioned italian, a little overbearing but nice, i hear they have good pizza, though, special occasions only, though i'd pick someplace better for a real celebration, like porter...

GLUTEN FREE ALERT! The steak I ordered was so full of fat and pepper, that it was almost inedible. The service had been so poor that I decided to cut off the top of the steak instead of sending it back. We have had 2 aweful experiences at this restaurant. My husband and I called in advance, and I advised... More

Cellar Door Steakhouse provides the ultimate dining experience with our juicy cuts of USDA Prime dry aged beef and elegant ambiance. The key effect of the dry aging process is tenderization and concentration of flavor of the meat. Our dinner menu is varied, offering seafood, small plates, and plenty of choices for non-Steak eaters. We also offer a lunch menu of soups, salads, and creative sandwiches. The beautiful decor of the restaurant has been developed by designers to have a polished, upscale feel with subdued lighting that will relax you upon arrival. The illuminated Onyx bar and lounge area was developed to be a fun, elegant space. This has become a very popular spot for the gathering of couples, friends and singles since the inception. The staff and management are extremely personable with the desire to please, which is the restaurants main goal at all times. Just like highest end steakhouses in the City, without all the hassle!
