The noise was so loud it was very difficult to have a conversation at the table. It really detracted from the dinning experience.

We Enjoyed It
The food was well prepared and delicious, with decent seasonal menu options. A very pleasant meal in a relaxed setting with overall good service.
Need to expand the wine list to strengthen their Washington and Oregon choices. We live in Sonoma County so were not looking for CA wines. There were many CA choices, but a disappointing selection of white wines from WA and OR. But what a beautiful wine cellar downstairs!
Wait staff left serving dishes on the table long after we had finished eating. Piano player/singer a bit loud, making conversation difficult.
We will go back again.

My family of 11 came here
My family of 11 came here to celebrate my mom's 50th birthday and they made it a great experience! The pianist played happy birthday for her and because my 82 year old Grandma is a piano teacher they visited and he was great to her. They brought out dessert, were great to my 3 year old nephew and the first thing the waitress said when she walked up was "Happy Birthday" to my mom. A great experience, great staff, great food! Thank you!

Great Lamb Shank
We always liked the "cellar" which was not open the last time we were there. Fortunately it was open his time. The background guitar was great. Food excellent. Ask to be seated in the cellar for best "ambience."

Good food & Service PIANO TOO LOUD
My wife and I dined here on a Sunday evening. We enjoyed the baked brie appetizers along with the clams. She had salmon for her entree and I had the roasted chicken. The food was quite good. Unfortunately we were seated in an area that was slightly uncomfortable because of the spotlight shining down directly on me from overhead. A gentleman a couple of tables away had a similar situation. I caught his eye, pointed up, and he nodded knowingly. That light should be on a dimmer. Although the piano player was quite capable, he was also QUITE LOUD. TOO LOUD! Because we dined at 6pm, the restaurant didn't have too many customers eating yet, so the place was almost empty. He could have toned it down a notch, make that two notches.

The jack wagon review
Enjoyed the experience, we were contractors on the remodel. Aesthetically it is a beautiful restaurant. Servers and food is very good, Me personally have used more potatoes and beans. And we were disappointed that that night special 10 ounce sirloin was run out.

We took out of town friends to the Celler. We were pleased with the ambience, the food was superior, and the service exceptional. I particularly enjoyed the live music as they were very talented and played wonderful music from a variety of artists, genres and time periods. My friend and I really liked the self service wine tasting. I will definitely be back.

Perfect Anniversary Dinner
Some of the best food you'll find in the Pacific NW. We had a great time and were thoroughly impressed with the food, service, value, and remodel. Will definitely be going back.

good food but......
My family was a huge fan of the wine cellar. The food was great. We sat in the new upstairs portion, which was nice. We always liked the old part though. Unfortunately, the old menu is gone and the price has tripled. Not a good combination in my world. The food was good and service was great, but i dont think it was worth it. I think they will lose the customers they spent years getting over this change. Like i said, everything was good, just not what i was going for. They need to go back or at least have some of the old items and prices.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The waitress made us feel special from the beginning and the food was no different. I loved all of it and the price was perfect. I can not wait to come back for my anniversary

First Rate Experience
I'd been to the Cellar for lunch and also for an early evening appetizer, so knew it offered great food and a vast selection of wines and cocktails. How would that translate into dinner with out-of-town friends? We were ALL delighted with both the food and the service, and enjoyed perusing the wine list before selecting our favorite Washington red varietal. The Cellar offers a neighborhood vibe, with everything from small plates to sumptuous entrees , suiting everyone's wallet and appetite. It is classy, yet casual - - a good urban bistro feel. Come for the wine, and stay for the food !

We brought family from Sequim, Wa to dine and we were all very glad we chose the Cellar. We live in Spokane, so it was new for us as well. Delicious food, wonderful wine selection, and we were fortunate to have Heather as our server. Heather was great. Sorry we had to leave without listening to the music. Thank you Cellar crew for a great evening.

Excellent food but service lacks
We had a reservation (through Open Table) for eight (8) people on a Monday night. They showed us to a table that only seats six (6) people. They said they were completely booked, but scrambled to find another table to accommodate our party while we stood there in limbo. After being seated, the server was strung very thin, with trying to serve more tables than she was capable of; so service was slow. The food was very good, though. I would recommend this restaurant if you are not in hurry because of the quality of the food.

My husband and I enjoyed a dinner for two at The Cellar and it was fabulous. Great food, up-scale atmosphere and excellent wine menu to choose from. Our steaks were done just right and oh-so melt in your mouth tender. Very top-notch and our table service was extraordinary. I highly recommend this establishment!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I guess we thought the menu had a better variety of vegetarian items.
The creme bule was excellent !

An old favorite reborn.
New location of the Cellar. Each floor has it's own personality with more elegant dining upstairs and a cozy downstairs with a few high bar tables, couches, and some traditional dining tables. Live music (jazz, motown, blues mostly) many nights either up or down. There are bars on both main floors, and I believe a private dining area on a third level that I haven't seen. We ate downstairs with a band playing, but only a few tables from the stage we could still converse easily. The food is outstanding with good but not overwhelming portions. I've tried many dishes and have never been disappointed! We bring visiting friends and relatives to try the self-serve wine machines. It's a fun way to try great new wines!

Very classy in a modern way.
We had a wonderful dinner here. Ask for the beautiful white leather banquet seating in the back of the upstairs restaurant. I must note that Open Table did not, however, convey our reservation to the restaurant. Luckily, they were not too busy that night.

Great food in downtown restaurant
I had a lovely dinner at the Cellar. It was nice to have the choice on the glass of wine I ordered. There were house wines and more expensive wines by the glass. I opted for a more expensive glass of Barolo wine. It was delicious and smooth. I arrived while it was still happy hour and ordered a half price appetizer of olive tapenade on crostini. It was flavorful and beautifully presented. It arrived with a nice small salad, and some cooked red peppers and onions to add to the crostini. Each bite was delicious and a great start to the meal. I had the steelhead salmon with a citrus tarragon sauce, orzo, and cooked vegetables. it was all flavorful and enjoyable.
This is a great place for a relaxing dinner and a glass of wine.

As always, Naomi was awesome and the server she assigned to us was outstanding! She was not only patient with our (5) Guaudalajara guest with broken english, but she was very patient, accomendating and thoughtful with us as well.

Had a great dinner.. Room was a bit cold but we were the first ones to sit down for that evening. Loved our server. She was probably one of the best we have every had. Very friendly, prompt and just a very pleasant girl. We had the "sampler" platter and what a great choice it was....
Next visit will be to do some wine tasting as we were not aware of the new set up down there. Had been there in the past and it was way too noisy for us but we will give it another try now that it seems to have changed for the better.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Large group celebrating Christmas and music much too loud. Had to shout to be heard by others at the table. We will not sit downstairs again. Food and drinks delicious. However garlic mash potatoes had so much garlic it was hot. And I'm a garlic lover. We will try again, we are locals and want this restaurant to be a success for our community.
