“Nice, quiet dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

This place is in an affluent residential neighborhood. The property is really beautiful. The restaurant is literally in the cellar, and it's very quiet and attractive. Limited menu, but everything we have tried here has been well-prepared and presented. We save this for occasions since it is on the expensive side. We have found service to be uneven, but that might be because we have tended to dine quite early, when the restaurant is first opening.

“Lovely Anniversary Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

On August 16 we celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary at the Cellars. What a great choice for a romantic evening. The champagne was wonderful, the salad appetizer very fresh and attractively presented. Our dinners with the accompanying wine were almost too pretty to eat and tasted out of this world. We then followed with espresso and split a decadent dessert. My husband warned me that we would be doing all of this in advance, so I took a nap to rest up for the extravaganza. The ambience of this place is beautiful...very peaceful and quiet. Romantically dim lighting without being dark. Exquisite service. Overall, a wonderful experience. Too bad there isn't a higher rating than 'excellent'.

“Cozy, classy and the BEST Osso Busso ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Great date place! Food was amazing, service great, they have a pool table to tone it done but truly a great place to have a drink an dinner. Check out their private lounge to host a small party and you'll really be impressed.

“Great romantic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

We go 1 or 2 times a year for special occasions. The food is always good, fried oyesters are amazing, I usually get a special while my wife likes the filet. Service lives up to the romantic setting by being attentive but not overbearing. The price is less than it could be and better than other high end restaurants in VB.

“A spectacular dinning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

I usually never make a point to write reviews, but could not ignore how perfect this dinning experience was. Service, atmosphere and especially the food were impeccable. Wine parings were right on target and not overpriced. Although the menu was not vast, they offered enough of a variety that anyone could find something that would suit just fine. I had the lamb for my main entree and it was absoutely the best ever. After living in the Hampton Roads area all of my life and trying many, many resturants in the area I would rate the atmosphere of the Cellar's as one of the BEST! Service was spot on too without the hovering that drives me crazy. For all this it is pricey, so a more special occasion may be in order for some budgets. However, we will find a special occasion often. Well done Cellar's, we will be back soon.
