“Food Was Superb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

we visited this restaurant/bar on a wet Monday evening it was very quiet only one other table but why we cannot work out. The service and the food were superb. Well done to the chef we really enjoyed ourselves and are only sorry that we do not live anywhere near or would make this a regular night out. Keep up the good work.

“Great night at The Wine Cellar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We didnt arrive till quite late (past 8pm). We (6 of us) walked in and were greated by the friendly staff. We were taken to our table. The staff were always at hand to take our order or check we were all ok. Our food order was taken and our food arrived quickly. Everyone had something different and no one had any complaints about their food. A great night had by all.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Nice little gem hidden in a Cellar in the center of Norwich. Even though it's called wine Cellar, I go there for the food. The chef really cook's with love. Well made food from 1st. class ingredients. And some modern and inventive touches to the food as well. Best restaurant, food wise, so far in Norwich.

“Reasonable food, Not great on the service sadly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Short and sweet review ... Nice atmosphere when you first enter the bar area, thats sadly let down by the cold and not terribly inviting rear dining room. A limited and somewhat unusual main menu at mid-high prices. Food was ok, not bad, not great. Wine list reasonable though not as extensive as one would expect from something named the 'Wine Cellar'.
Service was friendly but EXTREMELY slow and lacking, we had to actively find them to order extra drinks, ask for things including the bill, as they were all socialising at the bar, comparing iphones!
Last niggle was the toilets, a Saturday night admittedly but early on and there was NO toilet roll in the ladies, and it wasn't looking too clean :(
Disappointed as have been for drinks in daytime many an occasion and thought peoples food looked great and reasonably priced, but not the same in the evening.
