I normally have great service when I dine at this establishment. Unfortunately this time it wasn’t up to par. When we were seated it took 25 mins for our server to take even a drink order. This was after I went over to the hostess and asked them for a server. The food took too long but our server was very courteous.

The meal was delicious but they advertised outside that they have a happy hour. When asked about it the manager said it was an old sign and would not honor the request. That sign is up every day in front. Manager needs to be advised that the customer is always right

We had a nice booth seat. We decided to keep it simple and had pizza, salad, and beer. My husband likes the beer trio sampler. We had a truffle pie and a margarita pie. The quinoa salad was split for two prior to serving. Great surprise. Overall great experience and as always we will be back again.

Food was good but service was slow. The place was half empty on a Saturday night and yet the server told us that because it was a Saturday night there was a limit of 2 hours on our table. Totally took away the mood and the reason why we go out to eat. Might as well do take-out if you are going to have someone tell you that. It makes the diner feel rushed and uncomfortable. There was no reason for her to say that. It took almost an hour to get a glass of wine and an appetizer, which we were okay with. We were there to catch up and relax. When she asked for our entree order and we told her we needed to look at the menu she told us about the time limit. At that time it was 8:00 and half empty. Needless to say, the tables did not fill up after that time. Very rude and disrespectful to the diner, especially that it cost us so much money. Meanwhile, masks were no longer required and social distancing wasn't an issue so why keep this time limit part of COVID restrictions? You can't have it both ways. I guess it's profitable for them except that the place did not need our table and it turned us off so that we will probably not go back there for dinner any time soon. Profit over people.

Too understaffed

We waited 45 minutes to get the appetizer and then it was an hour after we got the main course

Appetizer was delicious but the main entrees were too salty despite our request for least salt as possible

We dined here several times before and thereby expect much better than this from our past experiences

Jen was a server and she was very kind and knowledgeable. She specifically asked if anyone in our party had allergies and instructed us how to order to avoid any issues. The food was fresh and the atmosphere was wonderful.

Very nice dinner with friends who had never ate at City Cellar before. They loved it! We ate in their outside space which is very conducive to dining. Everyone enjoyed what they ate as well. A beautiful evening enhanced by good service and food.

The restaurant is lovely but we found the pricing significantly higher than in past visits. The steak my husband and I had was tough and had a large amount of grizzle which was disappointing. My friend had the past with short ribs I believe and found it did not have much meat just too much pasta. Overall it was kind of disappointing.

Service has been extremely slow my last 3 visits, taking greater than 30 mins to even get a drink or put in an order. It is definitely not a place to go if you are on a time table. The sangria is tasty but very little alcohol. They used to be much better but have been water down a lot recently. The food is ok. Nothing to rave about. Could be warmer when brought to the table but decent.

Would recommend this for family dinners as their menu includes variety. We had duck, pork chop, ahi tuna salad and pasta nolognese and will recommend. Pork chop was tender and the duck was well cooked. We ordered both medium and was perfect. Most restaurants don’t ask about cooking wellness and they end up over cooking them.
We weren’t a fan of the Nutella creme brûlée (the Nutella was stuck to the bottom)’
