“Great date night”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

My wife and I both really enjoy going to the cellar any time we get out for a date night. The menu is creative, and it's really easy to share most of the small-plate items. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual and intimate, and although the service is excellent, it's not at all uptight and/or stuffy. One caveat, is that (in my opinion) this restaurant slants toward being a date/couples/close friends restaurant, and is not my first choice for a other groups (business, "the guys", etc.).

“Sophisticated, Fun, Creative”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We visited on a Thursday night and the atmosphere was fun but sophisticated with most tables filled by friends or colleagues. The wait staff was prompt, informative and friendly. There is a thorough list of wine and beer. The food is tapas style and we shared a variety of selections with three of us at our table. Everything was very good, fresh and well-presented.

“Terrific food in warm, comfortable environment”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Food is terrific in both quality and choice. Mini-plates (2 per person is adequate) with great selections. Tremendous beer list. Very friendly staff, warm environment. A great choice for a high quality meal without being stuffy.

“Best small plates and great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is easily one of my favorite places to have dinner with close friends. The different small plates are meant to be shared, so you want to go with people you know well and want to share food with. The atmosphere is so perfectly balanced between lively and intimate such that you can have a great conversation, but it feels very energetic.
