My only issue was that our server did not have a mask on although most of the other staff did. We always have an excellent meal there and the service was great.
Excellent food, served Ce & atmosphere !!!
Another fabulous dinner at the Wine Cellar.
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and everything was excellent, the complimentary champagne toast and the food and dessert.
Service was great and Diane took good care of us.
I highly recommend the Wine Cellar for your celebration or just a nice place to have dinner.
Best restaurant in Jax! Head lettuce salad and salmon were awesome. There no such thing as a bad meal at Wine Cellar. Everything g is top of the line delicious with perfect presentation.
Consistently fine dining through the years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From the moment my husband and I walked through the door at Wine Cellar, we felt at home. The staff greeted us and quickly escorted us to our table. Our waitress was Diane and she is a treasure. Diane was knowledgable of the wine and dining menus and made suggestions. The Rose was absolutely perfect and after a sample, we bought a bottle. We started with the shrimp on corn cakes which could have been a meal in itself followed by the wedge salad. Both had fabulous flavor. My almond encrusted grouper was magnificent. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his chicken piccata. We recently moved to San Marco and can see Wine Cellar becoming a favorite spot. We used the complimentary Beach Buggy to transport us from The Peninsula for our dinner so we did not have to drive. The evening was beyond perfect!
Recently dined under the ne Covid rules and everything was perfect.
This is a long time favorite !
The Wine Cellar is one of our favorite restaurants for an exceptional lunch or dinner. The menu choices, food preparation/presentation and professional service are always excellent. It's very nice restaurant with a cozy/quiet atmosphere that will never disappoint you.
As always, excellent food, wine and service.
Wonderful as usual
Food and service were excellent as always. We made a special request to sit near a window because of our young son which was accommodated and our server offered a plate just for him. We were very pleased with the whole experience.
As always a wonderful meal. We were celebrating my coworker’s birthday. Bob was a wonderful waiter.
Table next to us had their phone on speaker and was too loud.
Mgmt should have said something.
The Wine Cellar has been and continues to be our favorite restaurant in Jacksonville. The food is exceptional as is the service. We love going there; it's a wonderful evening for us!
Service was impeccable! The food was so good and cooked to perfection!
Wine Cellar outdid themselves this time. They are always superb, excellent, and the top of the line. Their Covid sanitation procedures and social distancing protocols are excellent. Their waiters are fantastic, the venue is perfect for quiet dining and special occasions. There’s not a single thing I can say bad about Wine Cellar. The food was superb and every single person in our party of five agreed that their meal was just fantastic.
I can’t say enough good things about Wine cellar but if people do not patronize it and trust them, even if they eat in the outdoor dining area which is very cute, they are going to go out of business. Do not let it happen!!!
Birthday dinner, great service, good menu choices, well prepared food and cocktails, variety of wine choices...nice ambience.
The service was great and Gary was extremely attentive and experienced at what he does. Overall I would give them 4.5 stars. 110% would go back!
Wonderful and delicious
And this app can be obnoxious.
The food is always spectacular however the AC is not working properly and it's difficult to enjoy a fantastic meal when you are sweating onto the plate!
Excellent food & service !!
Wine Cellar has been a favorite since we first moved here 37 years ago. If you are venturing out during these trying times, I would highly recommend you try the Wine Cellar. Hopefully they will survive this mess.
It was fantastic love it always recommended to people to come there to eat
My birthday dinner was exceptional. From the food to the service; it was a five star experience.
Delicious food, peaceful setting!
Wine Cellar is probably my most favorite restaurant in Jacksonville. The food is always great, the service fabulous and the atmosphere spot on.
Perfect for a date. Cozy and quaint setting. Food was delicious along with drinks and dessert. Recommend the key lime pie, bread pudding, mojito and margarita.
We were tentative about eating inside but our table was very private and it was such a pleasure. We could talk with our friends and actually hear one another. The food was delicious and our waiter did not rush us. Taking a temperature at the door and spacing the tables really made us feel very safe and we look forward to another night out at this great restaurant!
This establishment is a hidden gem in Jacksonville. Anyone that has not experienced the most intimate restaurant in town is missing out. It is a little pricey but it is well worth it . You get what you pay for.
Leave the kids at home, please. This is not a place for little ones.
Got together with some friends that I had not seen in person for months. Our server Kay not only took great care of us she had a wonderful personality and added immensely to the evening. Food as usual was excellent.
So great to have a wonderful lunch at the Wine Cellar. Service was great and, as usual, the food was too. Glad to be able to eat out.
They say they are following CDC guidelines for dining but they were a bit slack. One waiter with a mask. Ours did not. They were seating people fairly close together too.
Covid-19 has forced the restaurant to downsize. That was good in that our group of three had a room of our own. It was bad in that the menu has been reduced. I had checked the menu on OpenTable and had chosen my order but the NY Strip was not on the menu. I chose the filet and that was fine. Food was delicious. Service was attentive and we are having leftovers tonight at home!
Very nice ambiance. Service was excellent and our meals were delicious.
The wine is always a great time. The food is delicious and the staff is always pleasant and accommodating.
It was such a pleasure dining at the Wine Cellar. It was our first outing since Valentine's Day. Other than having to move to a different room because of a two year old who kept screaming at the top of their lungs. Our waiter made the move simple. I feel like writing a blog on parents who take very young children to an upscale restaurant with no care for others who also want a quiet pleasurable experience. I know that baby sitters are expensive but if you can afford to eat the at Wine Cellar then you can afford a baby sitter. Our first attempt at dining out since February and it was lovely.
