Always a great dinner

We always stop at the Cellar when we are in the Daytona area. Lena always treats diners as family. Food is tasty and plentiful. Wine list for all tastes and price range. Do not miss.

We went to this restaurant for dinner on our last night in Daytona and wish we would have gone earlier. The food was exceptional and the prices weren't as bad as we had thought they were. I had the Chilean Sea Bass special and it was as good as any that I have had before. Service was quick and they... More

We went to this elegant restaurant Saturday night, made reservations which you need because it's a busy restaurant. Another thing that's very nice is there is a dress code no flip flops, t shirts or beachwear. We arrived 15 minutes early and didn't have to wait, the waiters were very professional and attentive to service. They have a large wine... More

We chose The Cellar Restaurant for a special ocassion, romantic, fine-dining experience. We were seated downstairs in the "cellar" room, which was our preference. Although small, quaint, and beautiful, we would have prefered the lighting to be more subdued. The food and wine pairing was 5-star; our waiter was not. His inexperience was apparent (he only worked there 3 months).... More

We take friends to The Cellar often. The proprietors are very attentive to their guests, and the food is excellent, with extensive wine selection.

Oh where do I start...amazing experience all together! Hubby and I decided to have an early valentine's day dinner At a spot we never tried. After some shopping and looking at a few things online we decided on this spot. We called for reservations later in eve and they were able to accommodate. It was everything a couple dreams of!...

I was in Daytona Beach for a two-day meeting and four of us chose The Cellar based on Trip Advisor reviews. The reviews were correct -- a great choice in a city not known as a foodie locale. We were seated in the upstairs room, with large windows and a wine-themed decor. the menu is broad, but not too large.... More

Excellent Continental fare, cooked perfectly! We had a veal chop with a Roquefort sauce and shallots, and a pheasant duck combo with a mustard cream sauce, a pasta dish with shrimp, and the evening special app of black mussels. Everything was cooked to the right temperature, and was very tasty! This is gourmet stuff. Entrees large, appetizers not as much,... More

We took close friends of ours who live just outside of Daytona here to celebrate his 70th birthday. The ambiance was very nice, the service was right on, and the food was delicious. It is somewhat pricey but, in this case, you absolutely get what you pay for. The Cellar is a top lister for that special dining occasion you... More

This is my second time at this restaurant. The first time was incredible. This time was no different. Very pleased! Great Classic Italian cooking. Portion size is not large. It is just right. Wine selection is large and well priced.
