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 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.

I made reservations and informed the restaurant it was a birthday celebration. Not only did the host not acknowledge the birthday. the waiter and the floor manager did not. However , the floor manager went to other tables to ask how was the meal. He did not come to the table I was having dinner to even ask how was everything or again, wish a happy birthday. I know it maybe a bit petty but, little things like that separates great from average.

Third time we have eaten at Cellaio. Each time was better than the previous. We have had the Bistecca Flortina, which was absolutely wonderful. The bourbon carmelized steaks were awesome. We had them on the first night they were being served and ate every bit. The shrimp cocktail did not disappoint. Overall, I would give this restaurant a 10/10! The wait staff was extremely attentive. Our last server, Tyler, was extremely helpful and courteous. Will visit again for sure even if not going to casino. Reservations are a must and probably should be made at least a day in advance.

Oysters were chilled nicely, fresh and tasty. Polenta was very tasty but a bit too liquidy (it did not stay on fork well). Scallops were seared to perfection on outside with a perfect center. Bronzino was cooked very well and tasty as well. Creamed spinach was possibly the best I've had (not chopped and topped with what I believe to be a a very tasty gruyere cheese). Gelato was disappointing (it was more like ice cream with an odd flavoring). Pricing is suitable for the menu and ambiance. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience.

This steak house has improved by leaps and bounds since their opening. It proves that it's operated by true professionals in the industry! The steaks are tender and tasty and the the sides are absolutely scrumptious. Make sure to save room for dessert because they were a perfect ending to a perfect meal!

Our second time to have dinner and we were not disappointed. It was a busy night but our server did his best to attend to us. We had the caesar salad and the steak for 2 with a side of potato puree, and it was all scrumptious!

Nothing outstanding here that would make me want to go back. Way overpriced. Although tasty, One of the most expensive porterhouse for two and the smallest size we’ve ever seen. My husband was upset that it wasn’t served on a sizzling plate and it was ice cold in 2 minutes. All portions extremely small for the prices they charge.

The service was terrible starting from beginning with a 45 minute wait for a reservation we had to the end when the busboy grabbed our food and didn’t ask if we wanted to take full plates home. The waitress slammed drinks on our table, the orders were mixed up, no one came to the table for 20 minutes upon arrival. Overall negative experience.

Appetizers and entrees were very good. The dipping sauces given at the table were scant, especially the eggplant dip which only one person could try. We sat towards the back of the restaurant which lacked atmosphere. Felt like tables just thrown in to fill empty space.

My sweetheart and I dined at this establishment on Saturday, September 1st. We absolutely loved it. I ordered the Caesar salad along with la pomdoro pasta dish. Jeff ordered the skirt steak. He loved it. We've been here numerous times and loved every waiter. However, one waiter in particular seems to stand out. Rudy was our waiter on Saturday. I believe it was Rudy who enhanced our dining experience. He was highly professional and attentive. This is our favoriate restaurant at Resorts World Catskills.

Thought we’d try this restaurant after some casino time and before a show at the Epicenter and we were not disappointed. Had a reservation but got to spend a little time at the bar for a cocktail. Michael made a great cosmo and graciously endured a shot in the eye when I squeezed my lime into my drink. So sorry. Manager Seth showed us to our wonderful semi round booth and Rosemary made us feel like we were regulars. The strip steak was one of the best I’ve ever had. Ordered medium rare and it arrived medium rare. Imagine that. The dining room was full but was still able to carry on a conversation with my table mates without raised voices. We shared a bottle of prosecco and a yummy gelato for dessert. Looking forward to a return trip. Been to many steak houses and this was exceptional. Thanks from three over 60 gals for a fond memory.

This review was written voluntarily with absolutely no incentive of any kind.

Entree that does not include a veg or potato is not acceptable. Service was medicore and the Moscow Mule I ordere was so small I think it was meant as an orange juice glass yet was $12.00. I really do not mind the prices if the portions are decent and the food is good. I would not recommend this restaurant or eat there again.

Was not impressed with the "meatball" app which should have said sausage. Bone in filet was tiny for $48. Happier with the shrimp and salmon.

First of all they need to get a better bakery fir the bread. That's for starters. I had a Lemon Drop Martini. It was okay. Polenta appetizer euth parmesan, bacon and mushrooms was good. I ordered the NY Strip. I could have bought it in my local supermarket. It was okay. My friend and I shared the biggest baked potato we ever saw. It was on steroids. It was good. All in all not the worst steak restaurant but far from the best!

Tyler, our server, was knowledgeable and very attentive. Blake, the manager, inquired at least three times about our dining. The food was "out of this world!" The portion sizes were huge. We even had a "doggie bag" when we left and had dinner the next evening. All servers were friendly and helpful. Don't miss the peach crostata for dessert. We have already made a reservation for next month. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for a delicious meal and a delightful evening.
