Delightful restaurant. Food is excellent as is the service. This is the place you go for a slow paced meal. The portions are not huge but rather just right to leave you feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Great selection of wines and beers. It is pricey, we spent $190 with tip. But if you want a special night out I... More

We were fortunate to find the Wine Cellar open for a very late lunch / very early dinner recently. I like the menu posted near the door so you have an idea of what is served and the cost. Small plates and pizza sounded perfect for the time of day. Had to try the cheese stuffed dates on a skewer... More

Went here with my parents for a night out. We had a couple appetizers, mains, and dessert. The wine selection great, the service was good, and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. I would say this is one of the nicer places in Rapid. It would be a great pick for a date night.

My husband and I got a gift certificate for our (yes, "our") birthday and went together for the FIRST TIME to the Wine Cellar. I had been a few times previously but my husband, L, had never gone.

This is a tough one. We've tried to eat here a few times during tourist season without advance reservations and were turned away (a little snootily) each time. November.....not so busy and not so snooty. We sat on high stool chairs in the bar area and probably would not recommend that to anyone because the dining experience is kind of... More

I'm so sorry that it can take a bit longer for your food to arrive, because it is made fresh to order. It's delicious though, and thanks for saying that. We have been changing our chairs and are looking for new, more comfortable bar chairs as well. Please come in again and I will personally take care of you! 😊.... More

If you are traveling to Rapid City or you are a native of Rapid City, do not go to this restaurant! My son brought us here for my husband's 50th birthday and it was the most ridiculous place that you could go for a meal! It started out great and this has nothing to do with the waitress because she... More

This review was written by a person who was 1. Late for their reservation (which was made at a last second type of situation on a very busy night). I wasn't "going" to take the reservation but did anyway hoping to help them with a place to dine. 2. We're already in "good spirits" when they arrived late. They had... More

A place that is run by hospitable and kind people, with a thoughtful, committed and passionate chef who understands food. Excellent risotto, filet mignon cooked to perfection, well-executed pizzas, fresh soups, delicious spreads. I only wish the restaurant featured more local meats, herbs, and other South Dakota items.

A half block down 6th street from the Alex Johnson hotel, the Wine Cellar Restaurant isn't eye catching, but it's a reasonably good option in downtown Rapid City. Good menu and wine selections. Not busy when we were there, fairly late one weeknight, it's a fairly small place, but they do have sidewalk tables in nice weather so they can... More

I recently took my wife and daughter to The Wine Cellar for dinner and was very encouraged by the experience. The restaurant had a very strong wine list, including good CA, Argentine and French wines. The chef was accommodating to my daughter and me (no dairy). The pork sliders were tasty, though a little bit dry and the roasted vegetables... More
