“City Cellar - City Food, Island Prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

At the top of the list of mid-priced American Restaurants is City Cellar. Recently renovated, they now boast an outdoor patio and party room. The interior is beautiful, circular with a wine room behind the bar from floor to ceiling. There is a brick pizza oven in the open kitchen, and the outer edges are ringed with large comfortable booths.
The lunch menu is excellent with a variety of choices from burgers, salads and wraps to shrimp pad thai (my favorite there) and brick oven pizza. On week days you will find a lunch special for $20.14 for 2 people. Drinks extra. This is damn good.
The dinner menu shines with starters like jumbo lump crab cake, seared rare yellowfin tuna and mediterranean hummus with their own hearth baked feta and eggplant caponata.
The entrees Shrimp and Sea scallops pan seared, over 5 mushroom risotto and yuzu citrus-soy glaze; pan seared duck breast with figs, savoy cabbage, sweet potato puree & sherry caramel, and Twin 7oz Pork Chops, grilled, with potato puree.
They do get busy on the weekends to call ahead or go early. And check on line for specials. This is just a fun place.

“City Cellar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Used to be one of our regular places, but they changed menus (and I think ownership) a little over a year ago and its not the same.
Menu is okay, but a bit pricey.
On our last visit, the waiter acted like he couldn't be bothered; tried to get the manager's attention, but he was too busy ignoring everything. If we go back, it won't be for a while.

“Great Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We went here to celebrate an engagement, the atmosphere is great and the food was equally good. Its little tough to find is it is behind the shopping center but once inside its a different feel. Also they had a very nice selection of local beers on tap, local wines from the island and some creative drinks

“Good food, good service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Have been a few times, food is always very good. Had a lamb dish last time I went. Really enjoyed it. Service paid great attention to detail. Price was reasonable. Had the 2 kids here and there was something for them as well.

“Consistently Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

This location recently had a renovation. It looks a bit more glamorous. The menu has been tweeted but is still good; it accommodates everyone including children. Although I have taken a young member of my own family there, I have rarely seen children there. During the week, it is heavily patronized by the thirty something crowd. Service at times is slow but in over ten visits I have no complaints..
