Finally, something not so "college-student" oriented in Downtown Columbia. I love this place - great service, great wine, great food. The menu is limited but everything we tried was fantastic! I'm so happy I finally found this place!

Unique menu with great selection of beer and wine. Most of the seating is high tops and community bar style. We sat in the back on a couch and had a 3 course special for $22. Great deal for what you get. Service was great! Wouldn't go here without a date. cheers!

Cellar on Greene was my go-to, absolute favorite restaurant for years. Although the wines and wait staff continue to be attentive, the food quality and portion sizes have declined. I have taken friends and family to Cellar on Greene for years just for their outstanding, signature Tuna Nachos. A change in chefs led to a small change in the recipe... More

Cellar on Greene may be my favorite restaurant in Columbia. Its atmosphere is inviting and casual but definitely has an upscale feel. The wait staff will always share good recommendations for wine and for food, and you always get great service. Best of all, the wine selection is awesome and there are always recommended pairings with the always changing menu.... More

A true hidden treasure in Columbia. The place was fantastic! Great atmosphere along with a fabulous little menu. Choose a three course meal for under $25. And the coursers are plenty big. The wine selection was awesome - and they have $5 wines by the glass which are also good. Go. A true gem in Five Points.

I love Restaurant Week in South Carolina. It motivates my wife and I to eat out more often than we might otherwise and to try some different places. My wife wasn't able to go with me, so I went alone to Cellar on the Greene where we had never eaten. Long line, which I guess is a good thing, but... More

Cellar on Greene offers that unique combination of friendly local watering hole -- except with exquisite choices in vino -- and upscale foodie mecca -- except without the snootiness and expense. It's also great because people with different dining preferences can go together - one person just sipping wine, another interested in a small plate, and another hungry for a... More

My daughter and I loved the FAB pizza here. The waitress let us taste several a wine selection before committing to it, and did her best to direct to us a bold red. However, overall we were disappointed in the depth of the wine offerings. The retail section of the restaurant had a much better wine selection than the menu.... More

I have been to Cellar on many occasions for girls nights (hello wine specials), and on a date night. The food has always been stellar, except for the pizza that is just okay. They change their menu seasonally which when you fall in love with a dish like the duck quesadilla it can be heart breaking, but they do have... More

Menu was eclectic and adventurous, with many unusual pairings and so, so delicious! Wine selection was great too! My husband and I truly had an enjoyable evening here. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely go back when we're in Columbia again. Rose D
