    We passed this spot almost weekly, and talked about trying it. We finally made a reservation, and try it on Sunday. The waiter made suggestions about dishes, and every suggestions was spot on! He was also personable and checked on us regularly. The food was also great!!! The salad dressing on the Wedge Salad was great an our made dishes were mouth-watering. Definitely will make that place a regular fixture!

    I went with my sister and sister-in-law to celebrate our birthdays. We went on a Friday night, with a reservation, seated immediately (even though we showed up late). Our server was great, food came out quick, but not too quick, and it was delicious. We were not rushed at all! I had the lump crabcake and it was really good...not filled with breadcrumbs at all like a lot of other places. It was all crab! Definitely recommend!

    Although the noise level at this sophisticated eatery is "energetic" (a bit on the loud side), the atmosphere, food and service more than make up for it. The choices on the menu are varied and plentiful, from vegetarian and vegan options to steak and eggs! This is a great place to have brunch while listening to live music...close to shopping, too!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    We arrived at City Cellar this past Sunday for the Jazz Brunch. After being seated at a nice table, our waitress took our order. My friend and I both had omlettes complimented by a small greens salad and a basket of sweet breads. All of our food tasted very good and service was friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed our brunch cocktails- several choices were available, along with a varied menu. Next visit I would like to try another brunch entree, such as the Nutella Crepes. Special treat was live music by a jazz quartet.

    Our waiter had no personality. I never received any syrup for my Belgian waffles and I had to ask the busboy since our waiter didn't check on us until the I was almost done. Also had to call the waiter to get more coffee. Was unfortunate because the jazz was good and the restaurant looks great but the service was very poor and the brunch menu was not very exciting. Upon leaving, no one including our waiter nor the front desk person said anything to us. I was very disappointed and embarrassed that I took my mother there to celebrate.

    City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill was a great place to have lunch. The food was excellent, service great and the ambience was outstanding. Loved the lunch so much had to come back for dinner, which was also excellent. The dinner special menu had many choices and each of the people in our party had something different and everyone enjoyed their selection. Would definitely recommend.

    My boyfriend and I came here for to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. We have been here before for the same occasion, and find ourselves coming back time and again. The food is spectacular. The menu offers a variety of dishes -- some very different, and some more common items, but all with a twist. I definitely recommend the gnocchi dish with spinach and chicken! The service is great. Serves are always there to check in, but not intrusive. If the food alone doesn't bring you back, the atmosphere is fantastic. The restaurant is beautiful and the bathrooms are very clean!

  • Excellent Cowboy Steak

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    I had the 22 oz Cowboy Steak special - the meat was cooked to perfection, there was no visible fat, and it was tender, juicy. and delicious. The side was an order of Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. They were perfectly cooked, and reminded me of the taste of the Original Nathan's Famous of Coney Island fries that I used to eat back in the 60's. The only issue that I had was the noise level - it was hard to carry on a conversation.

    Took my sister, aunt & wife to lunch on Saturday. Setting & table really nice. Big booth in bar area was comfy & made conversation easy. Server was very good - friendly & responsive, but not pushy. The women enjoyed their chardonnay & I was pleased with the tap beer selection, including a local IPA that tasted great. We all had salads (Spinach or Quinoa) & they were just right. Healthy, interesting flavor profiles & also filling for lunch. The manager suggested the pistachio chicken salad sandwich - I did not get it this time, but saw it delivered to several other patrons & that's what I will order next time! We will be back!

    Dined on 7/20/2014
    Sadly, it was not the afternoon I was anticipating. My cousin's food was cold, when we mentioned it, manager apologized and replaced it with barely warmer food, my first "Bloody Maria" came garnished with olives and lemon as well as celery, my second had a bit of wilted celery. We ordered biscuits with gravy on the side, they came together, once mentioned it was replaced with a cold serving of gravy, never saw the biscuits. A friend and I had dinner there in January and we were Blown away by the quality of the food and the service! As you can imagine, I was quite excited to return with my family, at your prices, it's Not somewhere I can often go, and I found myself apologizing.
