I met a friend here for a weekend lunch. The have a great food menu and plenty of choices for wines by the glass. We sat on the lovely outdoor, yet fully shaded patio and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The only drawback was the service. Our waiter did not do much to "serve". He even said, "I'm going downstairs, do... More

This place is always great-fun and full menu-great service, if you visit in the warm months ask for a outside table-you can people watch.

Wonderful restaurant in Old Town Los Gatos. Great food and wine selection. Patio dining. The Cellar combo with soup, salad, and choice of crab cake, lamb lollipop, or tenderloin with peppercorn sauce is my favorite. Always have the tenderloin and it is always delicious. Highly recommend.

The Wine Cellar offers two different dining experiences. The cellar is a darkly intimate space welcoming you into its cozy atmosphere and making you think you might be in Europe. The outdoor patio is situated under large oak trees, giving a very California vibe. Food is consistently good, and often the portions are too large to finish. The wine list... More

I am a local in town and frequently dine here. In Los Gatos there are so many choices but getting the bang for your buck I say Wine Cellar! Anything on there menu is great, but the Chicken Marsala is amazing. Don't forget to try the French Onion Soup. You can never go wrong with the Braised Beef or the... More

I had a steak with mashed potatoes along with French onion soup. Everything was very delicious. My dessert was an excellent banana sundae. The atmosphere in the "cellar" is a unique experience. Highly recommend!

We went for the first time this weekend to the Wine Cellar Restaurant for my daughter's 20th birthday. This restaurant is great in every way!

The food and service is good at the Wine Cellar. One of my favorites is the Grilled filet Mignon. The Banana Sundae is amazing for desert! We love to sit outside when it is warm enough. The inside is just a little dark. But still a nice atmosphere. The down side of eating outside is sometimes there are dogs next... More

When we drove into Los Gatos, the Wine Cellar Restaurant caught our eye, but then almost anything with the word “wine” does. We were basically in town to dine at Manresa, and were staying at the Toll House. We initially had reservations at Verge, but had already pretty much exhausted their menu, so moved the seating to the Wine Cellar... More
