Great place to stop after work!

I like to come here with friends or solo on the way home from work. The food is excellent, especially the grilled chicken BLT! They use a really smokey bacon. This place is more than just a wine bar. They also have about ten craft beer taps and a decent selection of beer, mead and cider... read more

This is a great place to go have a glass of wine and a cheese plate! I have had a sandwich there too and it was excellent. It has a great location and a good feel to it.

Cheese plates and beer selection are also very good. Wine of month selection always top notch. Wait staff (for lack of better word) are outstanding people! Invest in a better location for sink/dishwasher. Upgrade bathroom. A little touch up and the gold mine would boom even more.

Wine is not my fortte, so I will let other reviewers speak to that, but Cellar door has a great menu of small plates, sandwiches and flat breads, as well as 10 craft taps and bottles for the non-wine enthusiast. Wednesdays they host trivia night, and I believe Thursdays feature live local music. I tend to go once or twice... More

I've never been looked at so meanly for ordering food before. . Their groupon says you can order food. . But it's not worth making the wait staff actually do work. .. they were rude and lazy. .. and just not welcoming at all.... we felt so unwanted.. although I still tipped kindly because that's in my nature. ..I phoned...

On an especially balmy night, was able to share tapas & great wine with a couple of friends, sitting outside enjoying the weather, the food, drink & company. Great variety of cold & hot tapas, salads & a chocolate dessert that was the perfect end to a lovely experience. There are sandwiches & flatbread pizzas but didn't try them this... More

Downers Grove is lucky to have this place. They have great lighter fair, terrific beers on tap, good wine selection, a fun menu and outdoor dining.

We live in town. We love wine, cheese, and meats, and we had hoped to become regulars at this spot. We were there a few times in the summer to take advantage of their cute outdoor seating, but only found a seat out there once. The tables inside are uncomfortable. Using wine barrels for tables is clever, but one can't... More

A favorite place to share some chatter with friends over a glass of good wine and some fun light meals. You can enjoy yourself either inside or on the small outside seating area (always crowded). Alex and his gang are very attentive without being overly so, and the food and wine choices are good. You won't find the grocery store... More
