“Friendly and Welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I haven't eaten here (yet), but have stopped in a few times for drinks and it's one of the friendliest spots in Boca to get a drink . . . and these folks know their wine! Very knowledgeable staff, but not at all snooty. They also have a decent selection of beer too.

Great place to stop in for a drink . . . very cozy atmosphere, and I always always always end up talking to interesting people here.

Recommend!

“Friendly and well stocked even for a beer lover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Stephen and Brian served as hosts for this wine lovers locale. Their hospitality made the difference as we discussed a wide range of travel experiences over an impromptu dessert course Prosecco and Malbec. We may have to return for another postres- especially if they offer an icewein.

“California in a bottle!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

The Rustic is a great place to go and have a wide choice of California wines in a calm relaxing enviroment. I love it here. I go all the time.
The bartenders are great - very friendly and knowledgeable. They even have a Sommelier level 1 working here!!!!! You don't usually find that in a bar type atmosphere!!
They have a free munchies bar now and you can order from a number of local restaurants and they will DELIVER your dinner right to your bar stool!!!
No where else have I had that kind of service!!!
There is a great outdoor seating area where you can relax on soft cushion furniture and put your feet up and enjoy a fantastic glass of wine.
No where else will they open a new bottle for you to taste and see if you like it.
They carry Plumpjack, 2480, Barnett, Chappellet, Ghost Block, Darouish etc etc etc.
The owners are friendly and FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Great Wine, Great People, Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

The Rustic Cellar is like no other. It is a wonderful place for first dates, an afternoon business meeting, happy hour with friends, or a night cap after a delicious dinner. The wine selection is remarkable with nearly all selections available by the glass which includes many eclectic and small batch wines from California's finest wineries. The bar also features a generous selection of uncommon beers.

The staff and the owners are friendly and strive to provide a special experience for each guest. In addition there is a host of regulars who often share their wine knowledge with new comers. It certainly is a great place to meet up with old friends or venture out and meet new friends.

The atmosphere at the Rustic is more like being in your own living room then in a bar. I'd recommend the Rustic Cellar to wine lovers, and to those that want to venture out to try something different then a traditional sports or neighborhood bar.

“Great Wines- Good Atmosphere - You Get What You Pay For Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I have been going to the Rustic Cellar now for about 5 years, its one of the most cozy places you can find. Whether you are looking for a place for a business meeting, sitting back on the couches with friends, or need some alone time with your significant other, the Rustic Cellar delivers. Its got great seating indoors, and outdoors if you can stand the heat or its the right time of year. Nice background music most of the time, but never so loud that you cant have a conversation with the person sitting next to you, or across from you.

Great wines, many of which can't be found elsewhere. Is it more expensive than Total Wine, of course it is, its a bar, the standard is about 4x the bottle price for a glass, and you get that anywhere you go for wine. Often I see folks complain that they could get this or that for cheaper online, what in this world isn't cheaper online? More often than not, they are not looking at the same thing, wine varieties are as numerous as drops in the ocean. Just because its the same winery, doesn't mean its the same varietal or year.

Overall I give "The Rustic Cellar" great props for being a genuine wine bar in Boca Raton, Fl. Whether you are looking for easy going Cabernet, a mid level Pinot, or a connoisseurs dream Zinfandel, you will find it at the Rustic Cellar.
