If reviews were all about the food, our second visit to The Cellar would have received 5 stars, but our recent experience had issues. The restaurant reminds you when making a reservation of their dress code and that's great, but it also has an obligation to send over the Manager or better yet the owner when a party of eight...

Our second visit to The Cellar and has always exceeded our expectations! Dario is an excellent server and so helpful and attentive! I believe their olive oil is imported specific for this restaurant and with fresh warm bread this Olive Oil is delicious! My wife had the shrimp and snapper cooked to perfection and I had the veal chop medium... More

I have eaten at The Cellar a few times. Not only is it the former home of a US president, but it just has fantastic food and service. People say it is a bit pricey . . . but I honestly feel that it is probably less expensive than most any other restaurant of similar quality and service. The food... More

Living in the Northeast, we have some of the best Italian restaurants in the US. My wife & I wanted to go to an upscale restaurant on the last day of our FL. vacation. We made reservations online, only to be told they did not show it. It was not busy, so it was not a big deal. The atmosphere... More

Although we had already located and thoroughly enjoyed another Italian restaurant,my boyfriend wanted to do something special for our anniversary. We decided to try "The Cellar" after reading some great reviews on Tripadvisor. Although we chose to ignore some of the less than flattering reviews, we found most of the criticism to be accurate. The food was not terrible but... More

Our innkeeper recommended The Cellar and we were extremely pleased with our experience. In fact, we made a reservation for Saturday night as we were leaving on Friday. The food is excellent and the service is extraordinary. Everything was perfectly prepared and exceptionally delicious. There are two dining areas; one in the beautifully restored cellar and the other is a... More

Daytona Beach is swimming in bad restaurants full of mediocre food at high prices. THE CELLAR IS NOT ONE OF THEM. We were so excited to find this place after a week of bad experiences. It boasts an intimate, romantic atmosphere. The food is home made and delicious. We tried four different entrees and all were very good. The pasta... More

I always go immediately to the bad reviews and can say in retrospect that the bad reviews are completely off the mark.. Let me start by reminding people that this is a fine dining restaurant. They do not want people in there wearing t-shirts, flip-flops or baseball hats. If they did I would not want to be there, it's fine... More

We went to celebrate my boyfriend birthday. The place was very cozy and romantic. We both ordered pasta, and was the best homemade pasta ever! The appetizer was good but nothing exceptional, we didnt have desert only cappuccino which was very good. If you're in and love pasta The Cellar is a must stop. However be warned, it is very... More

Wow! Went here based on other TA reviews. A wonderful experience start to finish. Especially nice for a romantic evening. No cocktails, but an extensive and fairly priced wine list, as well as some nice beer choices. The wine list is very descriptive, making selection based on your taste or the food choices easy. The menu and specials were varied,... More
