We had a very nice time at City Cellars. The place was empty when we got there, but it was early on a Monday night. The waitress was very accommodating and helpful. The food and wine were good. The only disappointment was they no longer have that nice hummus appetizer for two.
Also, they need to remove that Happy Hour sign out front since they no longer offer it.
Overall, it was a very good experience.

We were a group of 9 friends getting together for the first time since Covid started. We were given a round table outside in the back. Location was perfect. Everyone got to talk and catch up. Then we were greet by our fantastic waiter Seth. Everything he recommended was delicious and delivered in a timely fashion.
can't wait to go back again.

Overall would have been five stars save a strange remark at the end of our brunch. Our food was delicious, atmosphere lovely, great sun blocking and helpful service. While 💰 the bill, my husband, who had had a cup of hot coffee previously, asked for a refill. The answer he received was “we don’t do refills “.

This was a $150 brunch for four people, I have no problem with them charging for extra iced coffee or sodas, but not one refill on a cup of coffee? Seems penny wise and pound foolish to me. Left a bad impression.

A disaster !
Service was very very slow . Meal was presented with parts missing. The crackers on a Mediterranean board ! Asked if we wanted taco chips with it instead ???? Waitress offered to reorder we did but that second order took over half hour for 4 fish tacos! Manager comped us two glasses of Sangria- nice gesture
We have eaten here many many times with an excellent dining experience
Today was not

The food was excellent. The service seemed to be a bit off. We went on a Monday night. We had reservations and got our table immediately. We got our drinks and were waiting. Our entrees were brought out before the appetizers. Bread came out 20 minutes after the drinks, and the olive oil 10 minutes later. The waiter was quite apologetic and clearly admitted he had been working a lot of double shifts. They must have been short staffed elsewhere.
But, the redeeming point was that the food was excellent.

The noise level was intolerable. We had to wait approximately 20 minutes to be seated with reservations. Once seated, we waited an additional 20 minutes to be waited on. The able has only two setting and we had to 'flag' down a waited to gel the additional two settings.

I have been here many times and my experiences were quite satisfactory. Unfortunately, this time it was disappointing.

Was shaded & breezy on the patio under an umbrella, perfect for our lunch. Mediterranean Board was delicious. We had it as a starter, not realizing how much food it would be. Took home most of our mains, which were generous portions (sandwich & Cobb Salad). Would certainly go back again.

We've been quite a few times pre pandemic and this experience just fell a little short. For being a Monday night, service was slow and they didn't seem to have enough staff. We had a 730 reservation and it took almost a full 2 hours for one appetizer and 2 entrees, no drinks no dessert. Food was just okay, nothing that stood out more than usual. There was also a group of 5 at the bar that was blocking the walk way while waiting for their table that was quite loud but yet despite blocking the area for staff to walk through and being loud, no one said anything to them. It was just okay. Not planning on going back anytime soon
