We went to Cellaio for a birthday celebration. We waited about 20 minutes before they realized that no one had come over to us for our drink order, once they realized it was fixed promptly. We had one person who is gluten free and one who is soy free, both were able to enjoy the full meal without worrying about their allergies. The food was wonderful especially the polenta and the steaks. We all enjoyed our meal and thought the service was good. Everything appears to be made fresh and tasted so. The foccia was amazing and the spreads were even better. I would definitely recommend, it is pricey for Sullivan county but a great place to go for special occasions. The only complaint I would have is the waiting for the drinks, other than that everything went smoothly and tasted phenomenal.
ATE THERE DAY AFTER RED CARPET OPENING. SERVICE WAS SPOT ON. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND SERVED AS ORDERED. STEAK WAS COOKED PERFECTLY. LOTS OF ROOM BETWEEN TABLES ALLOWED FOR QUIET CONVERSATION CELEBRATING ANNIVERSARY. SPECIALTY BREADS ON MENU, BUT FOCACCIA BREAD COMES WITH MEAL.
ALL IN ALL GREAT PLACE TO EAT. AND REASONABLY PRICED
Food was absolutely delicious! Rich flavors, perfectly proportioned. The steak is buttery and melts in your mouth-the best I have ever tasted. Congratulations to the chef and the entire team! The customer service at this establishment can't be beat, you will feel welcomed and attended to from start to finish!
Food was tasty BUT worm not HOT ! Need a bear selection. To long to get food.
For everyone giving them such a hard time about service, they JUST opened ! We read reviews before arriving, so we were prepared to cut them a little slack. The food was delicious we really enjoyed ourselves. Definitely will go back.
The food was great but the service was not the best our reservation was at six and our food got bumped for a vip table and never got our food until 7:20
Great steaks in a really nicely designed restaurant with several different seating options from bright and sunlit, to dark and romantic. Terrific before a show at the Casino!
Steak was delicious! Dessert was nearly as wonderful! Amber, our waitress was phenomenal. She was very patient and informative. We will certainly return
The food was excellent. We (family of 3 adults) ordered the bistecca, which the menu described as a porterhouse steak for 2-4 people. You have a choice of 5 sauces to go with it on the side. Choose 1, none, or all. We chose all 5, and they came in a copper mini saucepan. The steak came, and it was a perfect medium, just the way we wanted it. The size was big enough, but I felt that it was only good for 3 adults, hence why I gave 4 stars for value instead of 5. The soda my son ordered should've also been bottomless, instead of just 1 serving of a skinny glass full of ice.
Service was Not good. Inexperienced waiters, Very rushed.
First off !
we arrived 8:00pm for a 8:45pm reservation. Knowing we were early we expected to sit at the bar and have a drink. Not even done with the drink we were told we had to be sited. How do I have to be sited ? I am not even supposed to be here yet. Ok not a big deal. So we were taken to our table.
After being sited,
Waitress came and asked us if we want bottled water, Wine list. Ok Good but then it ends there.
We ordered, Our Appetizers came out focaccia bread. We couldn’t even finish the bread and there was our 2 steaks. Not good and the waitress was not even there when it came out.
At a high end restaurant like this the steak should be asked to be fired. And it’s understandable now days if you just have to fire without asking, Do to the cost of doing business. However you have to at least let the people finish there appetizers first.
The Steaks were good. Even though ! For the time we spent in the restaurant for the service was not worth it.
Great to have an above board restaurant in Monticello. Hoping this is an indication of great things to come.
Food was excellent, wait staff a bit out of touch, food arrived fairly promptly. Manager checked with the table next to us several times if all was okay, but ignored us.
The internet showed a complete menu which is what attracted us to the restaurant.When we arrived at the table we were advised that it was a price fixed menu with very limited choices. They did not have the focaccia or any bread at all. The dessert had no choices . The food we did order was good , but the slight mashed potatoes and minimum vegetable was a disappointment.
They were unprepared for the opening night of the Casino. The service was terrible. Our meal was brought out while we were eating our appetizer. Our main course was sent uncooked , returned shortly after and still uncooked.
In all fairness, we went to this restaurant before the official grand opening.
We had great expectations but alas were disappointed.
There were only 2 steak choices on the very limited menu: NY strip and bone-in filet. The strip steaks were very good however and cooked perfectly. My husband and I prefer bone-in rib eye.
Our waiter was pleasant but uniformed. He told us the menu changed since the Monday unofficial opening and he wasn't sure of the entrees. There was no salt or pepper on the table. No bread was given even though this restaurant is supposed to be an "Italian Steakhouse". What?? We were told we had to order bread a la carte. It was foccaccia which was under par, overpriced and very skimpy. We were 4 people and ordered one portion (2 small 2" squares) to share. Our waiter never said it was only 2 pieces. There was also an absence of olive oil to drizzle over the foccacia. Everything was a la carte. Each side is $11.00. Our waiter said the steak came with no sides but there was a small radicchio salad on the plate. The steak sauce was very good. You have a choice of four sauces. Dessert was good but no espresso! We will try again after the grand opening May 12 to give a fairer review.
Food was outstanding. Wait staff needs significant training, however it was their first week open so hopefully they will pull it together.
Limited menu some excellent some OK
great service and the food is delish!
if you are at the casino and have the money go go go
The food was delicious. Very nice presentations. Staff was very attentive and did a good job.
