                                                  We started by getting in a argument with the man who seated us telling us we were wrong about a appetizer we have had at this location and even the waitress agreed with us when she took out orders she remembered. The man at the door was rude pretentious and I assure you we will not be back He was intent on proving us wrong he wins we will go elsewhere, for the record we dine out 4-5 nights a week generally upscale restaurants, this one is off our list

                                                  The dining area has changed since I was last there but the food and service are impeccable as always. Though slightly more expensive then a chain restaurant, the quality quality of service and the standard of food makes it well worth it.

                                                  Way off the mark for food…overcooked steak and under seasoned pasta. Server was great in spite of the kitchen. Not going back

                                                  We enjoyed our anniversary there. I got the hanger steak and my husband had the lamb chops. They were both cooked perfectly. It is a bit pricey, but I would recommend it.

                                                  Nothing special but decent food at a higher price point. The steaks were average but the halibut was delicious. Celebrated a graduation. I will say they were very friendly and accommodating.Probably one of the better choices in the East Lansing area for celebration or special meal

                                                  I met 2 high school friends for an early dinner. We started off with charcuterie board which was tasty. My entree of duck breast was absolutely fantastic! Dessert wonderful, too! Best meal in a restaurant I’ve had in a very long time!

                                                  New menu and new preparations. Fish was cooked perfectly as was the pasta dish but the streak tips came out cool and had obviously been sitting waiting for the other dishes. Kitchen was very slow. We arrives as only the third party seated, ordered promptly and waited almost 30 minutes for the entrees. Regardless, I'd still go back as it beats a lot of other places in the area. Suggestion: Bring back your wine flights. After all you are called Dustys Wine Bar.

                                                  We enjoyed the meal. Please bring back the bread before the meal. I think pricing of meals reflect having a little bread before the meal? Otherwise keep up the great work!

                                                  Dusty's Cellar is a place that we went to when we first met in East Lansing. We were in the area for a wedding so we decided to try it again for nostalgia. Overall the experience was good. However, I ordered the duck breast entree and it was lacking. The risotto was dry and lacked flavor, the sauce and accompanying veg etc didn't compliment the dish and the breast itself seemed like it had been seared and browned earlier and possibly reheated to order? Ive eaten a lot of duck breast and sadly this dish wasn't well done. The gazpacho soup was wonderful as was the dessert. And, my partner was happy with his Hanger steak. Service was crisp and efficient. For the price the duck breast needs work. The restaurant itself was just as I remembered it and seemed to have been very well maintained.

                                                  The manager accommodated our group of 8 although reservation was only for 6. Food was better than most I have had in Lansing area and wine prices were reasonable. Service was slow, because of new waiter and busy evening, but all were friendly and trying hard. We sat on patio which was surprisingly not noisy and we could talk even though we were at two adjacent tables.
