An excellent, cozy place for dining in what friends call a "casual chic" atmosphere. Wonderful food. Had a small fillet that was just delicious and very well presented. Service was very good and respected the clientel by not interrupting patrons conversations to ask how things were going. This is not a fancy restaurant when it comes to decor or location,... More

I've been to Cellar Bistro a few times and it has always been very good. Whether you get an appetizer or an entree the food is always consistent and fresh. The wine list is very good. It's a great spot for a date or a night out with a friend. It's small and cozy and quiet -- you can always... More

For dinner, this place is perfect for a date or dinner with friends. We picked it because someone in our party has an allergy to preservatives, and places that tout homemade, local, hormone free recipes are typically a safe bet. We tried the Mushroom and Brie soup and Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Bisque soup. Both were delicious, but I thought... More

We recently tried the Cellar Bistro. The sliders were really good, but I wish the came with fries instead of potato salad. Come on, how do you have a burger without fries. The service was decent but not overly attentive. The ambience was just ok, as the tables seemed a little crowed.

After a long week at work, I look forward to driving into Downtown Wheaton, and walking into Cellar Bistro for some nice wine and great, fresh food. I love the fact that they use preservative, hormone and antibiotic-free foods and they buy locally as much as they can. I do wish they would include the vintage on the wine list,... More

We were looking for a nice restaurant that was open on Sunday night and found a little gem with a lovely, knowledgeable wait staff, good food and wine and great jazz in downtown Wheaton, IL. The music added much to the enjoyment of the evening but was softly played so that you could easily talk at the table. And surprise... More
