    This place is an IN place in West Palm Beach. It has good reviews, a nice menu and a great ambiance inside. The only detraction to our party of four was the taste of the food. It was good, but not great. It seems like a place where the food would be great, but it simply wasn't. We'd go back, but we certainly wouldn't go out of our way to go back, and it definitely wouldn't be one of our top 10 choices in the area.

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    We tried to order a simple bottle of Chardonnay. The waiter kept recommending the highest price bottles on the menu. When we selected a more reasonably priced bottle, the label was out of stock. Other wines were offered to us at the full price on the menu. The meal was good (the filet mignon was cooked to a tee), but the wine issue put a bad taste in our mouths. We would go back, but hopefully we would not have the same waiter.

    I travel a lot for business. Picked this restaurant randomly. Had such a great experience, I went back the next night for more. Surprisingly, it was just as good as the previous night. GeeGee, my server, was smart, witting, friendly and provided just the right amount of personal attention without being overwhelming or chatty. All of the "small" portions were medium-sized and I had a hard time finishing them even though one was better than the next. Will definitely return and recommend to all diners - families, business, fun.

    City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill is a nice comfortable place for dining adjacent to bustling City Place. Up and away from the busy action but still right in the heart of everything. Nice ambiance, good staff, very good food, and full wine list, although on the expensive side. Yoy can dress it up or come right in from shopping in casual attire.

    I went to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful time. We had a very attentive waitress who offered great suggestions to us and took the time to answer questions. We were provided with bread while we waited for our appetizer which was a little hard, but we ordered veal meatballs and they delicious. I had chilean sea bass with asparagus and potatoes and my husband had a crab cake as his entree and they both were cooked to perfection. We both had cocktails and they were made with the right amount of alcohol. Overall great birthday dinner. They even provided me with a free dessert with a candle. I loved it.

    The service was excellent! The only thing I thought that didn't give warrant the perfect rating was that the waiter when he brought the appetizer delivered to one end of the table rather than to the center of table - it would appear as if only one person in our party ordered as he only addressed that one person rather than all at the table. Otherwise excellent meal and ambiance.

    Food was suprisingly delicious. Had the daily special brussel sprout appitizer an it was delicious but the odor was very "cabbagey." Added chicken to the homemade gnocchi pasta was delicious great flavor and texture but chicken was overcooked and dry. Tried steak special and it was prepared more med rare than medium as ordered. They put the steak back on the grill and cooked it more thoroughly. If it bothers u that they dont waste food and just cook a steak a bit longer, then dont order a steak here. I was not bothered steak came back perfect. Wine selection is decent with a suprising amount of selections by the glass. Acceptable wine prices too. A littlr to loud for a date unless your next to the person. Fun atmosphere for friends.

    We traveled from Miami to West Palm Beach to catch in combination with the improv. I found this restaurant online and thought let's give it a shot. The hostess was very accommodating and moved us from our table twice because we were not happy. So that was awesome. The food wasn't bad but it's not something that I would really go back for a second time. Especially since there's so many other restaurants at city place in West Palm Beach.

    City Cellar has been a favorite haunt of mine for several years. I've had dinner there before going to a show in the area. This past weekend we had a guest staying with us who wanted to get together with friends. I suggested City Cellar and they were extremely pleased with my selection. The food and service was wonderful. The noise level was a bit loud, but it was a Saturday night. Our server was very attentive and suggested a nice bottle of wine for the table. We were pleased with his selection. This is definitely worthy of a return visit.

    I picked this restaurant from other reviews, and was nervous that things would not be as good as advertised. However, I was proven wrong every step of the way. Being from out of state, I wasn't sure what we would get when we arrived...6 ladies from all over the country meeting for our friend's bachelorette party, all with different tastes and budgets.The food was amazing and the atmosphere was awesome. Our server was fabulous...remembered all our orders and drinks, and never seemed frazzled even when things could have been crazy with 6 of us. Everyone loved her meal, we shared a few items, and the drink list is extensive. I would highly recommend this place, and if I ever return to West Plam Beach, that will be the first place I go!
