We caught the Wineseller on a Saturday night when they had a guest musician for dinner guests. We had visited the previous day searching for some wines, and made the reservations for the next night. They are flexible when you can have dinner after they open, and you have your table for the night; there's no rushing to get the next diners seated. The meals we ordered with well prepared and the service was excellent. Direct interactions with the owner during our wine shopping and during dinner were very much appreciated. For a relaxing evening with good food and enjoyable music, with some crowd interaction, give this place a try. You will enjoy it!

The ambience in the cellar while we ate was romantic and classy. We listened to a jazz pianist, chose a bottle of good French wine, and ate some yummy ahi tuna and salmon. Make dinner reservations Friday and Saturday. They had a cool bar as well, no reservations required.

The NY style cellar is intimate and cozy. Went for after-dinner drinks and desert to enjoy the music, which was a professional solo guitarist. Easy listening with volume soft enough to enjoy and still have a conversation.
Don't be confused by the Church St. entrance which looks like a cigar shop because the cellar meanders into two larger rooms. Courtyard access also from The Patio to a new cocktail lounge.

I recently moved to Waynesville and have made my way through the restaurants in the area. I have been to the Wine Cellar 5 times now and have taken all the important people in my life. They all agree that this is the best! The food is always good. The wine selection can't be beat. The entertainment makes for great fun. Already have plans for 2 more visits this month!

Second year in a row I've been here for my birthday. We've been here many other times too. The food is always top notch, the music is good (sometimes great), and how can you go wrong sitting in the middle of thousands of bottles of wine?
