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!!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

As always, the food was excellent!! As one of our first ventures out to eat after 3 months of stay-at-home quarantine, I would have given the Wine Cellar an excellent rating all around except that we were quite surprised that the servers were not wearing masks. Ours was standing over us talking and bringing our meals without a mask. Another walked by with his mask pulled down at his neck. While there is natural division with multiple rooms within the restaurant, we were seated at table near the entrance of one room. While tables were spaced well within the room, the server had to walk by our table every time he wanted to serve us or any other table within the room. We were handed single use menus, but the wine list was in the usual leather folder. I used the hand sanitizer available at our table afterwards, but it had such a strong fragrance, I needed to make a trip to the rest room to wash it off. Our meal was excellent, but we were uncomfortable due to the lack of server masks. We will wait until transmission of the virus is less of a concern before we visit again.

Ambiance and noise levels were good. We got a complimentary glass of sparkling beverage in honor of our anniversary. This was very kind. The server was nice, but not knowledgeable about the difference between whiskey and bourbon. Our old fashioned had mutilated (seemingly muddled) cherries and oranges. The server also proclaimed that my husband ordered his “favorite dish on the menu”. When I asked about a recommendation between two items, I got the canned response, “every item on the menu is fantastic”. My husband’s almond encrusted fish was heavily BREADED and tasted previously frozen. My salmon was dry and burnt on the bottom. Very disappointed.
