Service was subpar which is unusual. Food was NOT good and neither were our expressly martinis. We all got very sick and had the worse heartburn and stomach cramps after our meal. That has never happened there before. Always had such good meals. The lack of service, especially with an attitude didn’t help.

Outdoor seating tables were definitely 6 feet apart. Servers wore masks and gloves. Food was delicious and atmosphere was very comfortable. We didn’t feel rushed and were able to enjoy a leisurely lunch.

I went to city cellar for their brunch and it was amazing. Their brunch menu is elevated to a level above the typical brunch menus. I had the brunch burger - juicy and cooked perfectly. The creamsicle mimosa is a fun twist on your typical mimosa and delicious it is made with vanilla vodka. There was live music which was a nice touch, and it didn't overpower the tables conversation. They have dividers up between booths for social distancing and the place was very clean. Server was great and attentive. Will be back to try the chicken and waffles with truffle maple syrup or the short rib hash.

I took a date here because I have always had a good dining experience and for the atmosphere. You pay for what you get and I felt like I walked into an Applebee’s as I was greeted by the host wearing a sweatshirt and jeans . I know we are in covid but save that causal dress down look for home or again a quick chain Restaurant. We were seated and waited over 10 minutes in an empty restaurant To be acknowledged . Looks like the shift was maybe just starting . No QLR code on our table as we waited . We got up and got it ourselves . Once our server Pablo met us it was a very nice experience . Very attentive and polite and many thanks for turning the experience around .

long time patron, use to be a great place for lunch, now it's over priced and food isn't as good. Saw our waiter once when we ordered and then not until he brought the check an hour later.

Made reservations, table was ready on time. Took a little while for waitress to come to take order. We ordered the shrimp appetizer which wasn’t big enough for 2 people. Main course was on the small side. Would we go back, maybe.

We were seated outside but they had clearly run out of room under the tent so we were out on a paved patio with insufficient light and had a broken table that wobbled the drinks around. We asked if we could be moved inside but they said everything else was booked. Seems there was a wedding going on and they got first preference. With that said , the food was amazing and our waitress was sweet and attentive.

Food & service is good! Drinks are way overpriced & watered down. Menu prices are higher than on open table app. Will probably not return.

Lunch hour weekday price fixe menu listed on Opentable was not available. Waiter gave us standard menu to order off of. Food was tasty.
We chose to eat outside in tent. Not a great ambience. Sort of felt we were dining in parking lot. Noise level high from road and echo.
I have eaten before inside and I know restaurant is very nice inside.
I will be back and eat inside.

on time for reservation but had to wait for table to be cleared, after being seated waited what seemed to be forever to get a waiter. wine list took five minutes to come after we had to ask for it, wine was a good value being it was 1/2 price for bottles over $100 had two bottles. food itself was very good just was a bit unhappy with service. i know with limitations it can be slower but seemed there shouldn't have been a issue this night.

We love City Cellar! But while have been dining there almost every week, we will have to stop until after the pandemic because they just replaced their well-ventilated, heated outdoor dining area with a tent that is almost fully enlosed. The food and service are great, but the new dining tent is like eating indoors without much ventilation. Sad to say, it is not worth the risk.

Booked this restaurant for my wife’s Bday , worst service I’ve ever experienced .. waited over 35 mins before my drink and appetizer order was even taken . Watched every other table around my group get service , some of which came after my group . Manager walked by a few times , never even checked to see how we were doing ...We eventually left and went to another restaurant. I would not recommend this place .. ever !!!
