Steakhouse
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 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 private events, a pair of intimate dining rooms reveal 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.

Fantastic. We had 5 people for dinner and every dish was truly great. We complimented the chef for his attention to detail in every ingredient for each dish. Wonderful. We will be back often. Plus great service. It doesn’t get better

Our meal was divine! Our server suggested that we share the pasta, and she was on point with that because it was certainly enough for two! She also explained the gnudi which was good because after her explanation, I knew that I wouldn't enjoy it.
This is a wonderful restaurant, and we will return!

Set in the beautiful Resorts World Catskills, Cellaio has a wide variety of appetizers and main courses to choose from. We had the New York Strip steak and the veal chop, both were excellent as were the potato sides. The service was superb and we total enjoyed our dinner. The meal was costly - about $70 a person with no drinks, appetizers or desserts.

Reception desk was impersonal . Waiter is knowledgeable but always felt he was in a rush. Listened carefully to my food allergies. Food was very good. However waiting one hour before we were served anything is a problem when you have an 8:00 reservation and you’re not given anything to eat on your table. Even the finest restaurants have some type of bread or fresh breadsticks and some sort of prepared dip.

Asked to be taken there by my family for a milestone birthday. It was great. The food was outstanding as well as the service and ambience. We had steaks, of course, and they were perfect. The baked potato, filled with all the goodies, was the best and biggest we've ever seen! We're still laughing about it. It was a memorable evening I'll remember for a long time. We will definitely be going back. It's a bit pricey, but worth it.

Nice ambiance. Server had a great personality, eas diligent although lacking in initiative and common sense. Exames include taking silverware and not replenishing, folding one of our guests napkins when she stepped away to use the ladies room. Music selections were appropriate for dining, volume was too loud. Waitress who served my boyfriend's dessert appeared inconvenienced as she placed his gelato in front of him, mumbled happy birthday and walked away. Food was amazing.

Our third time here and didn't disappoint. The pollenta appetizer is delicious. My favorite meal here is the Veal Parm but this time I had the Branzino - it was delicious

Saturdays are very busy and even with reservation wait is long but worth it. If you can go during the week the service is outstanding.

We will continue to dine here regularly

Service left a lot to be desired. Nice enough people but they are still developing. The food was good. The menu needs to be less limited. The chairs at the table slid on the tile floor and made it difficult to be comfortable. We were deciding on dessert when another server came to our table and asked for the menus saying they ran out. The place was full but I think you should have extra menus on hand. 230.00 with one bottle of wine and no drinks was a bit steep. I can see this place slipping already. Too much confusion.

The first time we attempted to dine, our reservation was never returned and we were turned away. The second experience was great. Our reservation was net and the waiter was excellent! Very personable and friendly. The food was expected and also pleasant. We would dine here again and recommend to friends. We however, would never recommend dinning during restaurant week as we did the first time. The restaurant wasn’t prepared for the amount of people that responded

Had a family dinner here on Friday. The food was very good. Our party had steak, scallops and salmon entrees, we had spinach, Brussels sprouts, carrots and potato purée as sides and no one was disappointed. I am not a fan of lemon so the salad on the plate with the scallops was the only thing I did not enjoy since it seemed that was the only thing on it. Overall it was enjoyable. The restaurant has nice ambiance although because it was busy it was slightly loud.

We enjoyed and loved the ambiance and relaxed feel of this restaurant. Everything we ordered was delicious from the butternut squash soup, beet salad, baked potatoes (which are large in size and taste), NY Strip Steak, Seared Diver Scallops (just perfect, NOT gumming), and finished off with desserts of Mascarpone Cheesecake and the refreshing Honey Amaretto Gelato!
Service was well-timed and friendly, we are looking forward to returning and tasting other dishes.

I had an amazing dinner, great attentive staff. Octopus appetizer outstanding, Polenta appetizer was mouth watering and a very large portion. Skirt Steak cooked to perfection. Can't wait to have dinner there again in the near future. The only drawback for me was to pay $8.00 for carmelized onions and my husband had a gourmet cheese added to his steak another $8.00 (I thought for the very small portion it was overpriced). The sides too were just a bit pricey.

Overall I give it a rating of 9.5 out of 10

The food was outstanding, had rib eye steak, which was delicious and cooked perfectly along with the beet salad which was great. The problem was with the service. Server did not ask if we wanted cocktails and then she took our order including wine and served the appetizer before she bought the wine. Had to flag her down to actually get the wine. Another server brought two salads we didn't order to the table and argued with us when we said we didn't order them (they turned out to be for the table next to us). Our server never asked us if we wanted another glass of wine. We had to ask the server for steak knifes as they were never brought to the table. Upon receiving the check the server never smiled, said thank you or anything. This is a pricey restaurant and again the food was outstanding but he service was terrible.

Took my wife and Mother-in-law out for my wife's birthday. Our reservations were for 6:00pm. The atmosphere is very cool. Love the dark wood-like color. The servers were all extremely nice, cool, and kinda edgy, which I really appreciated.
Best steak ever! Wife and I had the porterhouse for two. Mother-in-law had the NY Strip (I believe) plus we also ordered the scallops.
Best dinner. Great time. The almost made ,e forgot the money I just lost in the casino.
Now, on an embarrassing note. did not add my tip up properly and forgot to sign the receipt.
I received a phone call shortly after. They were very understanding. I rushed back and corrected my mistake, and you know what, I will definitely be here again.
Not even coming back so much for the casino.....Cellaio, definitely

Reservation was for 7:30, we stopped gambling to arrive 10 minutes early for a pre-meal drink. Upon checking-in, we were told to wait in the seating area and we would be seated momentarily. The seating area was full and so was the bar so we ordered drinks from the bartender and had them at the standing area adjacent to the bar. Other reservations arrived and were seated immediately. We weren't seated until 7:50 - 20 minutes after our reservation and 30 minutes after we arrived.
Although our server was friendly, he seemed to have gotten over seated and became less attentive to our table. Once our first course was severed, we realized both dishes would be complimented with a side of focaccia so placed an order with our server, once we got his attention. A short while later he came back to the table to check back with us but still no focaccia and said he would check on it for us. While he was checking on it, surprisingly, a runner delivered our next course prematurely, since we had barely touched our first course while waiting on the focaccia. She offered to keep our food under the heat in the kitchen but we were afraid that by the time we received the focaccia and finished our first course our steak would have been over cooked so we asked that she please just leave at the table as well as not to clear our first course or bread dipping sauces either.
Luckily we did that because the filet was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. Unfortunately, the sides of potato puree and creamed spinach were not as exciting. The creamed spinach wasn't actually creamed at all and instead was really just spinach with broiled cheese on top. The burrata was served broken and was mostly in a liquid form on the plate, hence ordering the focaccia. The ziti was cooked al dente which prevented the sauce from being absorbed - good thing we had the focaccia to sop it up. Many other pasta options that would have absorbed the sauce better orr the dish could have been served in a bowl...

The dining room is low-light and soothing. The food excellent, We thoroughly enjoyed the cream of asparagus soup which is not often found on menus. The salmon and cauliflower was cooked to perfection. The wait staff is personable and attentive. Our waiter Rudy was the absolute best as is expected in a high end restaurant. Reservations are a must if you want/need a specific time.. we chose the 5pm seating as we like early and many had to wait at the bar in hopes of a cancellation (sunday). we look forward to our next visit. Thank you for an enjoyable experience

This restaurant has excellent food. We had the same waiter we had a month ago or maybe longer than that and I failed to get his name but he is an excellent waiter. Resort world needs more good restaurants. The rib eye steak that I had was one of the best I have ever had. My husband is a scallops lover and he said his dinner was excellent also. We will definitely be going there again in a few months. It’s a little pricey but at least the food is excellent. .

I went to Cellaio for my 14th anniversary with my husband. The ambiance was perfect and our waiter Tyler was great. My husband had the polenta and salmon. His food was amazing. I had the asparagus soup and skirt steak with potato puree. The soup was good and the steak was perfect but I was not a can of the potato puree. He had the butterscotch budino for desert and I had the cheesecake. They were both a great end to the meal.
