    Food and ambience were very good as always! We did have a reservation as we were trying to get to a show, and that was a little problematic. They were really trying to acccommodate us, but we were seated well after our reservation. We did make our waiter aware of our timing and he tried as best as he could to serve us quickly. We would have liked to relax and not have to rush through such a nice dinner!

    If they had an OK button that's what I would push! Menu has changed and they used to make large biscotti which was my favorite and they came over with little slivers of biscotti :-( their bread full of Rosemary could not get plan. We received our check before we were even served I would desert very unusual. The portions were small and expensive. They tasted fine but not worth $35 for an entrée. I don't think I will be going back here.

We are all health nuts so we ordered the quinoa salads. They were large and tasty. Our waitress chose a great wine for our friends. WE will be back.

    Having never been to CityPlace, we wanted a restaurant to eat at before attending an event at Kravis Center. Went online and City Cellar had the best reviews, so we decided to give them a try. We were so pleasantly surprised, especially after having some pretty mediocre meals out recently. We sat in outdoor patio area and could people watch. Our waiter was prompt, friendly and attentive. So, the food. I had the special Short Rib with potato gratin and it was simply delicious. It pretty much melted in my mouth and the flavor was excellent. Husband had the Lamb Shank, which he said was equally delightful. The portions were more than adequate and the presentation very nice. Can't wait to go back when in town. This place will not disappoint!

    everything was good. Food, Ambience, Service etc. But to come there you need somehow to come behind the the frontdesk. All girls working that evening, really tried to scare costumer away, It startet already with the reservation. By calling in, we only got an angry: No table available! You have to come by and stand in a row for 30min... So we checked the opentable reservation schedule, and have choosen our preferd time, and booked ?!?? Everything went through and was fine. Out Table was ready, to the point we have ordered it. Comming by the frontdesk, at least 30 parties where waiting, and the rest was not even fuilly seated. Here is something realy wrong! As Manager of this nice restaurant, I would exchange the entier crew of the frontdesk.

    This restaurant has a divine menu but nothing is better than the Charcuterie menu. It is a separate menu so make sure that you take a look at it and make your selections. The Red Dragon cheese is delicious and you have to try one of the Spanish hams. Pair your platter with a bottle of wine from the extensive wine list.

    Our first time there, and we will return. The cocktails were superb. They have a small menu as far as variety of seafood goes, but what we had was delicious; and they had two specials. The excellent waiter listened to my preferences in red wine, and suggested a Malbec that I enjoyed very much. Appreciated the Christmas holiday music as well. Altogether, it was a delightful restaurant in advance of seeing the Rockette's Christmas program at the Kravis Center.

    There are many restaurants to choose from in City Place WPB, but this restaurant exceeds all others. The food is fresh and fabulous. Homemade "melt in your mouth" Gnocchi and meatballs to die for!! I am Italian and know my Italian food. Other diners had the same reaction to their dinner and desserts....... We will return soon!! The restaurant has great ambiance albeit a bit noisy. However, it was Thanksgiving weekend and all of City Place was jammed packed. It has a tremendous wine list and two bars. It is certainly the place to be! Our waitress was one of the nicest, sweetest servers I have experienced in a long time. She wasn't overly attentive, but never forgot about us, and always had a beautiful smile. What a pleasure! Ask for Gigi!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/29/2013
    Came to the City Place location after a show at the Kravis Center. We had a reservation at 8 and we were seated promptly. Our waiter was pleasant and offered information regarding specials, etc, but dropped the ball when he forgot one of the glasses of wine that we had ordered. The appetizers we ordered were very good, but for the prices we paid (25-35 per entree) the main course was ordinary at best. The stuffed jumbo shrimp were not very "jumbo," and the mahi mahi was bland and over-cooked. We waited far to long to have our emptied plates cleared from the table and were never offered a refill on the soda that was ordered. When water glasses were refilled (only once) not all the glasses were refilled. Left feeling disappointed.

    We had a large group (12) whose number kept changing, City Cellar could not have been more accommodative. The food was excellent and our server attentive. The dining room has a wonderful vibrant feel and the management on-site makes sure that all are enjoying their evening. The only blemish on an otherwise perfect evening was the powder room, it is a train wreck and needs some serious attention.

    My party went for lunch at 1pm on Sunday, the brunch menu was still available at that time. I had the bacon gruyere quiche, it came with a perfectly dressed salad, delicious. My children ages 4 and 6 were able to split 1 kid's pizza. The waiter was nice enough to let us know that the pizzas were very large so that I didn't need to spend the extra money ordering one for each child. There was pizza left over in the end too! Every one at the table seemed happy with what they ordered, it was all delicious, and portion sizes were generous all round with the acception of the seared ahi tuna salad, it was on the smaller side with only 4 thin slices of tuna. Overall I was very happy and check out the unlimited mimosas or bloody Mary's for $10!!

    This is a place where you can always get a good meal, time after time. You can bring others in and not be embarrassed by the food or service knowing you will get a decent meal. The place is always busy and even with a reservation most of the time you have to wait about ten minutes. Since the place is always hopping there is no impetuous to take the restaurant up a notch and I can't blame them since they already have a full house.

    Not a good experience At All & would not recommend this place. Unless you like being harassed and rushed of course. Half of our party of 7 was late by 40 min due to bad weather driving conditions. First the waiter keeps coming over asking about the rest of the party. Then a half hour after being seated and many numerous visits by the waiter asking about the rest of our party the manager then comes over also asking. He was annoyed with our answer that they hit some bad weather but are close by. Also they were out of the ingredients for one of their drink specials at 7:30pm and could not offer a sub drink for the same price. Now it's time to pay the waiter still not happy with us complains he lost out on a night of tips estimated @ $300.00!!
