The Burger Cellar is simply not worth it. The prices for what you get are simply not worth it. Services is really lacking --- even when the place is 90% empty. Guessing, the good wait staff have moved on.

Even the condiments offered with the burger are skimpy. This place isn't going to make it and it doesn't deserve too. Save your money $35.00 for just a burger and a drink and lousy service doesn't add up. I won't be back.

Had a chance to tryout the Burger Cellar with a large group. Place is upscale and staff were friendly and accommodating. More than just burgers.

Some interesting dishes and an attempt to offer things out of the ordinary. Like the seared tuna tacos - thought this dish was a miss as it tried to be a fusion of Japanese and Mexican cuisine and missed by a wide margin. On the flipside, poutine dish was good.

The restaurant offers up burgers with different "grades" of beef. All are high quality and can get pricey if you have the highest grade (over $10 for just the burger, no sides). The burgers are good - just keep in mind that you'll be paying for it. The Burger Priest is right next door, so you can actually get a good burger and save a bit of money by going there.

If you want something more than just burgers, Burger Cellar offers a wide variety of entrees and a wide variety of spirits - some things Burger Priest doesn't have. Keep in mind that entrees will run you $15 and up, so this place isn't going to be cheap especially if you have a big group.

Maybe not the greatest burgers you've ever had, but they're pretty good for the money. Upscale interior is nothing like a burger joint. Patio is right on Yonge Street, and traffic noise makes it hard to have a conversation. Try the milkshakes...they're fantastic!

My friends and I loved the food, everything was incredible. The one things I have to say is, it's not one of those restaurants where you're encouraged to sit and stay, they kinda want you to eat and go...the server was friendly at the beginning, but when she noticed we were going to stay for a little longer and she wasn't getting new customers, we didn't see her as much and had to wait extra long to order coffee and espresso. Great food...but not worth the dirty looks
