Beecher’s – The Cellar Ratings and Reviews
Went to Beechers for a client lunch the other day and it was great! We all got our own soup - the tomato soup was amazing, the french onion a close second. Then we shared a bunch of small plates. For 5 people, we split: 2 kale salads, an order of the meatballs, one grilled cheese and a Cesar salad. We were going to order a charcuterie plate to share, but we were so full since the plates were a pretty decent size. It's downstairs in their Cellar, so it's very dark and super cozy. If you like cheese, definitely check this place out.
Mushroom tart was pretty tasty and imaginative, but I wasn't blown away by any of the mac and cheeses on our sampler (we had all the veggie options) or the white bean dip.
Ambiance and service were both better than the food. It's nice and quiet in the cellar, but the servers are fun and the right level of engaged.
After spending some time looking for a good dinner spot in Flatiron, my husband and I decided to venture into The Cellar. Having tried Beecher's cheese in Seattle, we knew we were in for a treat.
We had a reservation for 8 PM, but were seated early - around 7:45. A huge plus, since we were hungry. The menu had some fantastic selections, and we settled on the cheesemonger's cheese plate, the meat flatbread, and buffalo mac and cheese. We also got a cocktail, each.
All in all, the food was phenomenal, and our servers were friendly and accommodating. If I had only one complete, it's that the restaurant was a bit noisy, since it has a thriving bar scene in the back.
Would definitely go back.
food was really good and the server was nice if odd, but it's so loud and we went on a quiet Wed. night when it was only half full. The food is very good and the wines by the glass are as well. The server makes good suggestions and is aware of how to accommodate gluten free. they subsitituted GF crackers.
the atmosphere is nice and cozy for winter, but honestly it's sooo loud it would be tough to recommend, but that's the only drawback
The cheese is the star here, although the rest of the menu was really excellent as well. We went for a late lunch on a Saturday, so the restaurant wasn't crowded - it's more of a night spot. But I highly recommend it. The cheese plates were very well thought-out and the cheeses were well-paired with accompanying condiments ranging from dried cherries to a caramel honey, etc. The rest of the menu was fantastic, and the atmosphere was very cool. Overall a hidden gem in the Flatiron district.
My husband and I split a salad, a patty melt and mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was golden brown on top and quite yummy. We ordered the patty melt without onions but the kitchen mistakenly put them on. Our server noticed before serving it and told us the kitchen was making a new one. The server's name was David and he was very detail oriented. He was so fast, the way he was zipping around and taking care of everyone, but he also took the time to be friendly.
Always a great spot to grab a drink and food in NYC. The mac and cheese is a classic and always creamy and delicious. New additions like the pastrami rub salmon make the menu great for repeat visits. Bonus if you can make it in time for the happy hour specials - some of the food and drinks are half off!
If you enjoy the idea of eating in an underground cave surrounded by wheels of cheese, this is where it's at. The mac and cheese is phenomenal, and the alcohol list is extraordinarily extensive. The lighting is dark but fitting, given you're in a cave, and the service is exceptional. I went for dinner. The movable tables can be kind of a hassle, and someone almost spilled the wine on my table when they got up to leave, but we avoided that. Great spot for probably anything.
I love dining out and one of the most important things I look for is great service. There are very few places I can honestly say that I've eaten where the service is superb. My server was amazing in every way. The bonus was that the food was equally as awesome. Thank you for a very rare and wonderful experience. I look forward to more.....Maryline Kleman
This was my second time to eat here and my 3 friends had never been here but they weren't disappointed. I love the 'world's best' Mac & Cheese. Not sure it's the 'worlds best' but it sure is good! I also love watching them making the cheese upstairs behind the big glass partition. Fun to see and also fun to buy their cheese to take home.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I made a reservation for 9 people at a place I've never been. But we were so happy at the end of our meal, it couldn't have been more perfect. Great drinks and of course, mac and cheese. We weren't rushed and our table was ready when we arrived, which I appreciated greatly. We adored the cheesecake dessert! I will go back just for that!
I wouldn't recommend this as a romantic or date spot, but I would recco for a group of friends. It was a bit loud (I think that's just the way the room is set up), but for our large group that felt ok. Service was really amazing, and the staff was knowledgeable and helpful.
Brought my best friend here for her 30+++ bday. And we had a blast. The service was so welcoming. Drinks amazing (especially the Stafford White). Both the Kale/peppito & pork belly with pickled fennel Mac & cheeses were awesome. Also, had the simple salad to counterbalance all the drinks and cheese we consumed. Perfect portion sizes for sharing. Definitely has a spot on my go to list.
I never write reviews but I felt compelled to share with the world just how on point this place is.
From the food, to the atmosphere, to the servers, everything was truly phenomenal. My original reservation changed from 6 to 4 people, and they usually only accept reservations for a party of 6 or more but they held my table and were more than accommodating.
The vibe downstairs in "the cellar" is super cool; comfortable, loungey, dim lighting with wax candles all around and brick walls and wooden tables, but not too "mood lighting-y" where it can be confined to strictly a romantic feel. I went with some friends for my birthday but this spot is really good for just about any occasion.
We all split the 5-cheese plate and the endive/arugula/sweet potato flatbread which was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Cocktails were also delicious. All around, this place is an absolute gem.
I went there for a casual business lunch. It was not too crowded but there was only one waiter. It took 15 mins before he came to greet our table. He was friendly but overall service was sparse. The food was good. I recommend going with friends and sharing a few dishes. You'll get more variety that way.
