Had a lovely time. Very nice restaurant with great customer service. I felt that the wine was extremely overpriced while some of the menu options were reasonable. Our server was lovely and very knowledgeable. Happy I tried this restaurant but next time I will look very closely at wine prices.

Good gathering place. Went for brunch with friends. Waitress was at our table minimally. Couldn’t order a second drink. Food was good but cold. Unfortunately they need more staff.

I have been eating at city cellar for years, and although it is just as pleasant, prices are higher sand the value is less.

I use to love this place but unfortunately the last 2 times I came here I was a little disappointed. The table the hostess sat me at had crumbs everywhere including the floor. I could not step without feeling all the crumbs. When they switched me to another area that table wobbled and the silverware had some food stains.

My friend and I decided to just go to the bar instead, and it was much better.
Although the bartender was very talented and somewhat friendly, he had some attitude when my friend inquired about the pour of wine. Actually, the bartender seemed annoyed with any question that could not be answered with yes or no. Perhaps because he was the only one back there and had to do bar and table orders. But overall, he did a great job.

Speaking of table orders, a few waiters were handling the drinks and using their hands to scoop out olives and the like. This is a big no no.

I will consider giving this place another chance because it was very classy and catered well to their patrons in the past. Perhaps with everything going on things are a bit off. I probably will revisit months from now and I hope by then things go back to how they use to be. It is a beautiful place at a convenient location.

Had a great time hear. The service was as expected which was good. The menu’s font was a little too small to read and the lighting didn’t help.

After our bread and wine arrived, fruit flies or gnats started flying by our table. By the time we were eating our meal, the bread was covered in no less than 10 fruit flies. I didn’t see any bugs in our food (and I prefer to think there weren’t any inside) but the infestation of flies is concerning. I hope this gets fixed because it’s a beautiful restaurant with delicious food.

I would have rated it higher if restrooms were more clean. It was very dirty but they did clean it after I used it.

Very dissappointed - We always loved coming here for lunch. There uesed to be a lunch special for $19.95 pre pandemic. Now the same lunch is $35.00 - RIDICULUS TO SPEND $80 FOR LUNCH. Food wasn't that good either. WE had a tuna salad and the tuna was funky. Told the waiter and he didnt adjust the check.
They also used to have a lunch club tyhat has been discontinued.
I will be looking for a different lunch place.

I have been coming here for years. Yesterday we were a party of five. My daughter ordered a salad with Shrimp. The lettuce on the salad was brown, she ate the few Shrimps on the salad. We showed the waitress the salad she agreed. She said she will show it to her manager. The manager agreed. He never came to our table to apologize or offer my daughter a substitute. They then had the nerve to charge us $10.00 because my daughter ate a few Shrimp. I mentioned this to the waitress that I was upset. The manager still never came to my table. The issue is not money but lack of customer satisfaction and the quality of the food they are serving.

I usually come for brunch but decided to have a regular lunch with my aunt. I tried the turkey burger which was delicious but sadly the bun fell apart. The blackened shrimp tacos were amazing and the s’more sundae was incredible and hit the spot. Our server Gabby was friendly and attentive. City Cellar never disappoints. :)

The service was awful. There were more back waiters standing around doing nothing. The turkey was dry and the stuffing was like eating saw dust it was soooo dry. There was one waiter that was absent most of the night. Will not be back.

I have been going to City Cellar for dining on holidays and sometimes for regular dinners over the last few years. This Thanksgiving was a disappointment. For what you pay, the food was awful. Turkey was dry and shrimp and scallops were overcooked and rubbery. It wasn't any busier than usual, so there was no excuse. Not going again.

Went for restaurant week… very disappointing… average at best… service was good.. steak was cooked perfectly but the steak was poor quality and dry… came with fries that were nothing special and the carrot cake was a huge disappointment.. no cream cheese frosting almost tasted stale..,
