Simply put, the 1895 Wine Cellar is a superb dining experience! I had heard about the Wine Cellar on our previous visit to the Mountain View Grand but it was booked then so we had to wait until this visit to experience it. I didn't look at any reviews, or even the menu, beforehand so we didn't really know what to expect. The approach to the Cellar is a bit like entering a speakeasy. You walk through the Harvest Tavern, down a flight of stairs and enter a full blown wine cellar. As others have noted, it is a bit chilly at first. The reason for this is simple. The Wine Cellar is a functioning wine cellar. When not being used for dining it is kept dark and at 56 degrees. My wife was a bit chilly at first but the fabulous host, Kader, offered her a light blanket and she was fine. After a few guests arrived, things warmed up and she was fine.

The ambience is fabulous. Wine racks surround you, the lighting is quiet, the seating private and the noise level very low.

The food was equally amazing. Everything was fresh and beautifully presented. I especially loved a plate called the Forest Floor which was wild mushrooms served on a plate with cedar branches and then an underplate that emits an incredible misting steam . Words don't do it justice. World class.

All in all a truly memorable meal. The director , Kader, was great and the server, Vanda (with a V), was excellent. Attentive, knowledgeable, but not intrusive.

My husband and I ate here last night...all 3 courses, plus dessert, were wonderful. Wine pairings were spot on, wonderful service and very creative presentation, particularly the "Forest Floor" mushroom dish which gets our vote for most creative presentation ever! The setting was cozy and intimate. All in all a memorable experience.

Thank Charlene F

Treated myself and my daughter to dinner while we were staying at the MVG. Javar and Kader were perfectly attentive but never obtrusive. We enjoyed everything from the amuse bouche to the chocolate dessert.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at this very intimate spot. There were only a few tables, and you are actually in the wine cellar. It is cool there, so make sure to bring a sweater! There are three courses to choose from. The food was beautifully presented, and the portions, while on the small side, were enough to keep you satisfied without feeling stuffed. Javar, our waiter, was outstanding. He didn't hover, but knew exactly when to come over to see if our drinks needed refilling, or to offer an alternative when he noticed that I didn't really enjoy one of my courses. Towards the end of the meal, the chef came out to meet us and to give us some more information on some of the food that we had eaten. We were very impressed with our experience here.
