Lina and Sam always make you feel welcomed

Whatever you order at The Cellar, you can be certain it will be perfectly prepared and presented. We go to The Cellar as a couple, and with friends. The service is always par excellent and we never feel rushed. It is a special experience for us, whenever we go.

don't let the reviews of some that complain about dress code, indifferent hostess or whatever keep you away from this restaurant. Here are the facts as I see them; waiter was friendly, efficient, and attentive, you get what you pay for, the food is superior, fresh and portions are reasonable. Desserts are delish. The Cellar gets outstanding reviews because they... More

Quality of the food and the service were excellent. It really is a cellar, so no view, and a little noisy. Make sure you're aware of the dress code, no tee shirts.

I agree with all of the recent reviews that this is a lovely spot for a special occasion Our bill was a little over $100 which included two appetizers, two entrees, a bottle of wine and dessert which...

Always fantastic .Lina and her husband do an incredible job. Everyone I send for fine dining are always impressed. The fresh marinated anchovie salad is my favorite. One of the top young chefs in the US visited it lately and really enjoyed it . It's hard to believe another restaurant Don Vito's is in the same category .
