Incredible wines, tasty appetizers, entree was well crafted but shrimp a bit overcooked and dry. Wait staff were super helpful and attentive. Our group of 18 loved our two hour meal. Will return

Went to Cellar Bistro for lunch during the week. Arrived at the beginning of lunch service. Friendly host staff and prompt water service. Menu is creative and suitable for all types. We started with the baked brie with pears, seasoned pecans, quince paste and walnut...More

We've come to Cellar Bistro many times for lunch and supper and I'm actually kind of amazed that I haven't reviewed it before since it's one of our favorites. I love the cozy atmosphere and the menu is excellent. It hasn't changed a great deal...More

Lots of variety in menu. Small place, great service. Sidewalk seating. Relaxing environment. Jazz singer performed one evening when I was there. Not a bar scene.

Menu choices are limited, food is interesting, but somewhat "pricey" for the quality and quantity. Service was slow and came across as uninterested. Trying to be "gourmet" and not quite pulling it off. Good for a quick lunch or appetizer dinner.

We had walked by the Cellar Bistro many times on the way to IVY, so we decided it was time we give it a shot. The restaurant was surprisingly empty for it being 730 on a Saturday night. Back wrapped dates were amazing! Wedge salad...More

Delicious soups and quiches that go great with a glass of wine. Outdoor seating in the summer is nice!

I had never noticed this restaurant - sign is probably overly discrete, and despite the name, it is not located in the lower level of a building. Rather it's a small corner bistro with very nice food. I have to say our service though friendly,...More

A wonderful little gem in downtown Wheaton just 2 blocks from the Metra. Serving delicious, homemade dishes using preservative free ingredients and hormone/anti-biotic free beef, pork, bison, chicken and eggs. Fresh fish featured weekly, live music every Monday night, a great wine list and quaint sidewalk dining with alcohol service. We buy from businesses within our community, or from small businesses who are an integral part of their communities and try to have a positive impact on their environment. Opened in 2007, this husband & wife owned restaurant was nominated for Restaurant of the Year in 2010. You will be impressed with the ambiance of the small dining room, the personal, attentive service by the wait staff and the delicious menu options.
