The food was very good although
The food was very good although small portions for the price. There was a sign in the front of the restaurant advertising buy one tapas get one free which we thought applied however after we received the bill and questioned being charged for both tapas ordered, we were told that was only a special in the bar/lounge? The sign did not indicate that and so we felt a bit mislead.

It is great as an elegant restaurant or just to sit at the bar and sip a good cocktail.

It's going to be a great summer ...
Because we can have brunch on Sundays! So far we have tried the eggs benedict, peach bellini and the corned beef hash. We will return and try other items, and we can't wait.

The food was excellent and the restaurant held our table because we were late due to traffic. A great dining experience!

I have never had steak and eggs for breakfast before, it was great with a pepper infused bloody mary! The steak was the perfect portion size, so I was not overwhelmed or stuffed. Service was outstanding.

This is a great restaurant in Corning and in the region, don't miss it!!

Food - Most notable for local foods and wines, aggreeable but nontraditional "fusions," making use of up-to-the-minute nutritional information.
Decor - bold but muted, appealing.
Soft, rather Zen music plays in the background. In a roomful of people, we felt alone, intimate.
Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, attentive but discreet.

main st corning
Though a quiet time on Sunday at noon along Market st in Corning, it was a very pleasant experience. The food was as described via the menu and served warm. We did not feel rushed in any way and the décor was welcoming and light. The staff was friendly and attentive. The cost of food and drinks was very reasonable for its amount and presentation. Done very well for a brunch experience and would highly recommend it . We will definitely revisit.

An island of yummy in a sea of blah
We were in the area for a wedding and The Cellar was the only place that showed up on Open Table. We drove 35 miles to get to Corning and were so happy we did. A simple and comfortable decore with friendly service and a surprising wine list. An interesting mix of menu offerings. From small tapas to several options in vegetarian and gluten free dishes. Everything was flavorful and well prepared. The duck fat fries are a must try!

1. Attentive service from a helpful and knowledgeable waiter
2. Extensive menu with lots of off-beat selections
3. Huge wine list also with lots of off-beat selections
4. Satisfying portions
5. Delicious coffee served in individual French press pots
None I can think of.

A memorable birthday dinner
From the cocktails and the cheese and charcuterie boards, to the filet and creme brulee...everything was DELICIOUS! One in our party has a gluten allergy, so we were very happy to find The Cellar and it's wide array of gluten-free menu options. We just couldn't understand why the restaurant wasn't more crowded for a Friday night; our only thought was that it was because it was race weekend. We look forward to returning there next time we are in the Keuka/Corning area.

Great steak - one of the best filets I have had recently! Good wine list - I was able to explore it one different glass at a time.

we went two nights in a row!
The food was delicious; the waitress spectacular; the attention to detail from the ambiance, color of the walls, tall ceilings, booths with high backs so you didn't feel on top of the tables around you, all attended to. This restaurant rates up there with any Manhattan spot! All in all we enjoyed ourselves so much we cancelled our reservation at another restaurant in the area and went back to The Cellar for a second night!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a different menu - very unique and delicious! Loved the duck egg rolls and the chicken special!

We dine at The Cellar for special occasions such as family visits and some milestone celebrations like this one. Sometimes we (my wife and I) choose to dine there without need for a special occasion like a milestone or family visits, but it becomes a special occasion because of the food and service at this restaurant.

Food and wine were wonderful.
Food and wine were wonderful. Two issues with service. 1. It's a short menu and they were out of two items. This was for a 6:30 dinner on a Tuesday. 2. We ordered a second glass of wine when our main entre was served and waited a long time before having to remind the waiter.

Perfect pre & post race
Was in Corning, NY for the Wineglass Marathon. Took a large group here on Saturday night for a meal prior to the race and then went back again post race to refuel.
The menu is very creative. The vegan options can be modified to include protein, and were great as I am lactose intolerant. Had a chance to eat some dishes that I hadn't been able to in a while.
Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back again.

Good food, friendly service beautiful surroundings in a quaint little town!!
A recipe for success!! One suggestion - get rid of the ' buy one for the kitchen"
addition on the menu- rather cheesy for such an upscale establishment!

A little bit of NYC in Corning, NY
This felt and looked like a Manhattan restaurant and the food hit the mark. We opted for some "small plates" and the waitress helped us choose some very tasty ones and she was very helpful in that she did not let us over-order.
I would come back here in a heartbeat.
Oh. The prices were NOT Manhattan! We got out at just about $85 with wine, beer and a tip! No dessert, however, as we were quite satisfied!

City Class in Corning, NY!
My sister and I recently visited Corning N.Y. for a girl's getaway. We researched tripadvisor to choose a restaurant for our Saturday night dinner. The Cellar received great reviews, so we decided to try it out. It is right on the main rd. in Corning, easy to find. The vibe is young and hip. The wine, appetizer and cocktail menu was presented to us on an ipad, which we both thought was very cool! I tested 2 different martinis and they were both really satisfying. We shared 3 different appetizers, but our favorite by far were the kobe sliders. They were juicy and thick, full of flavor. Also notable were the fried baby artichokes. We will definitely return to The Cellar and I recommend you try it too!

Bacon is incredible
Brunch was great. We can not live without the bacon here.

Wonderful locally owned restaurant
In a time of corporate owned cloned chains it is great to have an locally owned establishment that produces great and varied food in an upscale ambiance. The fusion style cooking pairs complimentary tastes for a "fun palate" . The chef/owners choice to utilize locally sourced fresh and sustainable food is a big plus. The gluten free and vegan choices are a bonus for people with those particular needs. The restaurant provided a complimentary, duck confit with candied fig appetizer that was really good, I hope it makes the regular menu. Only con, I miss the sweet potato gnocchi, hope it comes back soon.

Best in a long time
Visiting Corning for the first time, my husband and I picked The Cellar because of other good reviews we'd seen on the web, but the restaurant actually exceeded our expectations. It was better than almost any of the top restaurants in our home town (Philadelphia) The beet salad appetizer featured pureed green peas, an excellent combo, and the scallops entree was fabulous, as was the risotto. We had no room for desserts but they looked excellent as well. Service was perfect, attentive, informative, not intrusive.

We especially enjoyed the smoked scallop and fettuccine with butter sauce special.

Our daughter had a one month appointment to work at the Corning Museum's Studio in Corning, New York. My husband, son-in-law and I decided to join her for Thanksgiving. Since it was our son-in-law's birthday the day after Thanksgiving, we wanted to take him out for dinner. We asked our daughter for dinner suggestions and she suggested The Cellar. The menu is eclectic and held something for all of us including a nice selection for vegitarians. The pork chop, short ribs, chicken and pumpkin ravioli were excellent. The wine list had a good selection of wines including NYS wines from the region. The room was pleasant and quiet. The wait staff was very helpful with the food selection and the wine list. This was a wonderful choice.

Great Menu, Great Venue!!
Whether it's a special dinner with my husband or early evening drinks with girlfriends, The Cellar provides the perfect setting with a bar & restaurant menu that is constantly updated.

Great place on Corning Market Street; Great martinis, extensive wine list. Cheese board (local products) appetizer was exellent. Main entree, scallop dish was excellent. Service was also very good. Well worth a visit (we plan on going back)!
