Very enjoyable experience. Few people there so service was very good. A good manhattan, good house Cabernet. Charcuterie plate very good. French sip good, not best in city. I would go back. But expensive.

The brunch selection is delightful and different. It is not your everyday pancake with salmon brunch selection, which is why I like going. The Veggie Scramble is delicious with the sundried tomatoes mixed in with onions, and cheese. While I am not a fan of their biscuits, the soda taste is too strong for my taste, Chef Carl brought me a sample with the sausage gravy and it does pair well with the sausage gravy.

That is the level of service that makes Spoon and Cellar nice. The staff interacts with you and takes your feedback to enhance your experience.

I am looking forward to the new menu offerings. Hope they bring back the Apple, Prosciutto & Brie Flatbread.

Not the level of service we typically expect from Spoon & Cellar. We will probably not be visiting on Sunday any longer.

We visited Spoon & Cellar before seeing Les Mis at the Aronoff. Everything was outstanding! Amanda, our waitress, was friendly, personable, attentive and extremely knowledgable about food preparation. My Blackened Scallops were perfection. My husband ordered the Seafood Diablo Pasta and said that it had the right amount of spices and heat.
We found Spoon & Cellar through Open Table. It's a gem and we will definitely return.

Overall, nice atmosphere and upscale smile menu. The food was well prepared and flavorful, but plating was lacking. Our waiter took our order, kitchen staff delivered food, bar delivered drinks, and there was no follow up. The guy who bussed the tables and provided water was great, but our table had been cleared for just over twenty minutes before I finally flagged down a different waiter for our check. Our original waiter finally showed up without an apology or explanation, asked if we wanted our check, my guest went to order another drink then thought better of it. The waiter must’ve known there was an issue because he offered free desserts unprovoked. We declined as we had a timeline and avoid sweets. Overall, a mediocre experience, but I’d be willing to return and show grace for a possibility of an off night.

For brunch we ordered the burger because it sounded awesome. But why ask for what temp to cook the burger to if you still cooked it any way you wanted to? 3 different orders of the burger all 3 with different temps requested all 3 were cooked the same way. Medium rare still has pink in the meat!

Went for the first time on Valentine’s Day and my girlfriend and I both really enjoyed it. Food was great, and not too overpriced. James, our server, was very attentive and gave us great service. Very pleased with the overall experience, will definitely go back, and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

I ordered the Valentine’s Day special. My “medium” filet was much more medium well to well. There was a very small pale pink line throughout, mostly gray throughout though, which made it very dry. I got the filet Oscar style and I was given a very small piece of crab from the knuckle meat, I assumed it would have been leg meat and a bit larger like what was shown in the picture. The crab bisque was watery and I had a large piece of shell in mine. The beer cheese was grainy and underwhelming. The chocolate dessert was not as described on the menu, I was expecting vanilla ice cream with it. It was a basic chocolate dessert you could buy anywhere. I also told my server I did not want the Champaign with my special and he said he’d bring me the chocolate covered strawberries instead. He never did. I was fine with nothing, but with all the other issues it just added to the poor experience. We were with friends and seeing a show. Under different circumstances I would have let the server know about all the issues. I’d expect a similar experience at a basic chain steak house, but not for what they charged here. Next time I’ll spend a bit extra and go to Jeff Ruby’s instead, at least I know my steak will be cooked how I ordered it.

We choose Spoon and Cellar for our Valentine's Day meal, proper to a concert at the nearby Taft Theater. The food was very good and the dining area was comfortable. Our waiter was quite pretentious and couldn't pronounce Sangiovese or charcuterie correctly (not even close), but he was appropriately attentive. The prices are reasonable. I would consider it again.

Valentines Day before the Concert (Little Big Town)!
Bartenders were phenomenal and let me taste champagne! Love Ashley! Sat down to dinner. Ordered another glass of champs and got the leftover glass from a bottle opened 2 days ago. Called the manager Mike over and WOW! What a super nice experience that was! He not only got my husband a glass of the new champagne but bought us a bottle! If you ask where customer service went..come to Spoon & Cellar! Food was great! He asked for feedback and is going to make changes based on that. I will definitely be back!

We were seated promptly by a very welcoming hostess. Atmosphere was quiet for a Saturday night. We sat in a very cozy booth which we really liked. Our waiter, Nokia, was excellent. Attentive, but not intrusive, just how we like it. Cocktails were excellent. The menu is small and fairly limited. Our apps of the charcuterie and the sesame tuna were delicious. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her seaside diavolo. My chicken picatta was good, but not great. We would return.

We were a party of 3 on a Saturday night with a reservation. We were greeted by a welcoming hostess and seated immediately. Our server was excellent! Every bit of the food was presented and portioned well. The charcuterie board - fantastic, Cellar Caesar - delicious, Prime Cut Filet Mignon - perfection, Seaside Blanco Diavolo - unbelievably great, and the Chocolate Ganache Torte - perfect! I highly recommend Spoon & Cellar and look forward to returning again.
