My wife and I celebrated our 1st anniversary on Dec 4 at The Cellar. We decided to make it a tradition to eat Italian, as the is what we had for our wedding dinner. I looked online and found The Cellar and made the reservation based on what appeared to be an intimate setting. I must say, I did GOOD!... More

There is a dress code, I would say business casual at the very least and the menu isn't easy to read. The staff was friendly but maybe a bit stuffy. Nice for an intimate date with somebody special. The food was delicious, but it wasn't cheap. I would go again.

Don't expect to come in here right off the street. You need to be in at least business causal in order to get a table. The staff know exactly the right thing to do. Trusting their opinion would not be a bad idea. No cell 0hone atmosphere and dress code are among just a few things that contribute to the... More

Our group of 10 close friends celebrate a yearly December anniversary. We have been going to The Cellar for the last 4 or 5 years, making reservations well in advance, and sitting in their upstairs room at a large table. We have always been well accommodated and have enjoyed the food. We have also dined there by ourselves and with... More

My husband and I were delightfully surprised to discover a restaurant of this caliber hiding in Daytona Beach. From a highly prolific wine list to the ultra-attentive service, we were thrilled on all accounts. The food was simply immaculate, both in appearance and taste. My husband will not stop raving about his veal chop! Definitely the perfect choice for date... More

Not what I expected for a fine dining establishment. The location was horrible. It was so dark and dingy with homeless people lurking around. The food was sub par and way overpriced. I was in town for one night on business, and too bad I chose a loser. If your looking for sub par overpriced food, then this is your... More

We went because of the high reviews on tripadvisor. We had the "Cellar" Mista salad and it was very tasty. We ordered the "Perciatelli Carbonara" for our main course. The kitchen took 30 minutes to get our food. The pasta was over cooked, for which ruined my meal. We could not believe the kitchen would serve the food we got.

What a treat! For some reason I had never dined at The Cellar until now (some friends hosted a birthday party for me there). From the appetizer, to the main course, to dessert....even the cappucino....every single item was cooked (and presented) to perfection! I can honestly say this was the first time I have ever taken a picture of food,... More

This place was a surprise find in Daytona. Located on a side street, it really is a cellar of a historic house. Wine list is first class but more importantly the food is just right. Put on you list if you desire a fine dining experience in Daytona.

I do not live in Daytona Beach but any time I go there I try to dine at this exceptional restaurant. I have done so numerous times during the past 3 years and have never been disappointed. They have an excellent menu and the different courses are superbly prepared and beautifully served. Be sure to make a reservation!
