Renowned chef, author and restaurateur Scott Conant introduces an Italian-inspired steakhouse, Cellaio, nestled in the picturesque Catskill Mountains. A play on the Italian term for a butcher’s pantry, Cellaio offers Conant’s take on the traditional steakhouse, complementing aged steaks with the antipasti, market salads and house made pastas that have become synonymous with his cooking. A relaxed bar and piano lounge greets guests upon arrival and leads to a spacious dining room featuring roomy crescent-shaped booths, communal seating and an interactive decanting station for sampling wine and bites from the kitchen. For private events, a pair of intimate dining rooms feature retractable window walls, revealing incomparable views of the surrounding mountains. Whether it’s to celebrate a big win or for a weeknight dinner with friends, Cellaio Steak is a destination dining experience for upstate New York built on generous hospitality.

Excellent pasta dishes and steak was outstanding. Scallops were also excellent. Experienced, attentive bartenders were also appreciated. On par with any high end New York City steak house. Casino surroundings and accommodations are excellent if you choose to stay.

It’s not the typical type of restaurant we go to, normally we go to family restaurants, but this was for a birthday. The food was well beyond our expectation and worth every penny, we will definitely be going back. The only down side was that our waiter seemed new and while he was back often to check on us, he seemed to lack the fine dining experience.

I enjoyed my rib eye dinner. Wife said sea scallops were mediocre. Only 1 appetizer for us and it was good. The service could have been better. The server was fine, just a little slow. Also, they were out of 2 of our favorite wine choices and had to settle for iced tea.

Overall the restaurant was excellent. The only real issue that we had was no one stopped to pour our wine or even to see if we wanted another bottle.

This was our second visit at the Cellaio. Both times we had fantastic meals and our servers, particularly, Mr. R. Cherry was second to none. Not only he was attentive to us but his know-how on food and ability to engage people was fantastic. Definitely recommend the place for special occasions, since price point is rather high. Only icing on the cake would be to see Mr. Conant himself!

With a dozen empty tables and an advance reservation... we (like 4 other parties) were parked for 20 minutes in their “lobby”. No one came to check/advise why the delay. Lots f people standing around—- which I bet Scott Conant would not appreciate.

Wait staff is clearly still “in training” mode, but we’re friendly. Seems like they were overwhelmed— so perhaps they underestimate the anticipated attendance (odd, since it was a holiday week & hotel pretty full).

Kids under 5 running around screaming and no manager stepped in to ask the parents for help. Definitely diminished the experience for an expensive meal.

Steak had some seasoning that was not enjoyable. Salt & pepper is all a good steak needs. Caesar salad
was made with limp romaine lettuce and i would swear a bottled dressing. Homemade Stromboli was
a greasy mess. Dessert was a very small scoop of sorbet served without even a garnish. And to top it off they were out of a house Cabernet. Overall I wouldn't recommend. I was very disappointed!

They are very short staffed, which made even getting water a difficulty. The staff they do have try very hard and are very apologetic about the situation. Overall food was very good, but a little overpriced

FOOD WAS NICELY PRESENTED AND EXCELLANT.
BUT, RESTAURANT DELAYED OPENING DOORS FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES DUE TO A GROUP MEETING WHICH WAS VISIBLE THROUGH THE GLASS. THAT JUST DELAYED OUR POST DINNER ACTIVITIES.
WE HAD TO ASK FOR WATER INSTEAD OF BEING OFFERED.

WAITER WAS FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL.

My wife and I havent been to the new casino yet and heard great reviews of Chef Contant's restaurants. It was our 17th wedding anniversary so wanted to try something differant. Making the reservations was easy using the website, went into the casino for a little bit then arrived for a reservation a couple minutes early and sat at the bar until our table was ready. The bar tenders were quick and courteous. We were brought to our table and didn't have to wait for the waitress. She read off the specials and explained differant items on the menu.

My wife and I had a wonderful meal. My wife had the special of the day, 78 day aged NY Strip, I had the Bone-in Fillet. Both were prepared exactly to order and the food came out without a long wait. The prices are a little on the high side for the area but the food and the service was well worth what our bill came to. I would deffinately recommend this restaurant to others and would go again.

Thank you
Scott and Danielle Glynn

MY HUSBAND WAS VERY EXCITED TO GO TO THIS RESTAURANT. WE BOTH LOVE STEAKS. HE WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE FILET MIGNON ON THE MENU. MY STEAK (NEW YORK STRIP WAS VERY WELL SEASONED AND COOKED TO THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE. WE BOTH AGREED THE BEST THING ON THE MENU WAS THE GRILLED ONION GARNISH. THE POTATO PUREE WAS EXACTLY THAT OVERLY DONE WITH A BUTTER SAUCE? THAT ALMOST MADE IT LIKE SOUP...OVERALL I EXPECTED MORE FROM THE FOOD. THE SAUCES FOR THE BREAD AND THE SAUCES FOR THE STEAK WERENT VERY GOOD EITHER. ONLY HIGH MARKS I GIVE IS FOR THE SERVICE. AND ONE LAST THING..THOSE LEATHER APRONS WHICH THE WAITERS WEAR REMIND ME OF TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE...THEY WERE NOT FLATTERING AT ALL.

My husband and I were very pleased with our first experience at Cellaio. The staff were all very friendly and our waiter Tyler was very knowledgeable explaining different items to us. They bring out a nice assortment of bread to start along with a variety of three dipping sauces. The oil emulsion with roasted garlic and Parmesan cheese was to die for! My husband had the Rib Eye steak which was tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection (medium rare) accompanied by the crispy fingerling potatoes which he said were very good and plenty of them. I had one of Chef Conant’s menu specialty meals - the homemade pasta w/ his signature Pomodoro sauce, as Tyler explained there is a little kick. I found both the sauce and the pasta cooked spot on and plenty for my appetite (other reviewers stated they thought the portion of this dish to be on the skimpy size). Unfortunately we had no room for dessert this time, but hope to when we come back again.

Incredible dinner, service and ambience. Third birthday in a row for my wife at a Scott Conant Restaurant, and like the other two (Scarpetta-Miami and Fusco-NYC), Cellaio didn't disappoint. Traditional faves like the Pomodoro, Polenta and Steak were amazing! Running into Chef Conant in the lobby was a special treat!

Our server was attentive without being overbearing and each course was impeccably prepared. Kudos to the staff for managing a busy dining room, especially hosts, Seth and Blake who made sure each table was properly cared for.

Thank you Chef Conant and your Cellaio team for making my wife's birthday extra special!

Horrible greeting. Restuarant was empty and we had reservations but is still took 10 minutes for them to figure it out. Not very professional servers but they were definitely trying there best. Cafeteria vibe. I was hoping for a high end steakhouse. Maybe things will improve they have a captive audience at the casino with no other high end options.

Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and make suggestions. We ordered Scott Conant's signature dishes and they were outstanding. It was an excellent dining experience.
My only suggestion being a born and bred NYC gal now living in the Catskills, if you are going to charge Manhattan prices then the portions need to be a tad larger especially the pasta pomodoro.
I will definitely be returning again.
