Fabulous experience. Gary waited on us and was exceptional to pay attention to every detail. Salmon was a wonderful choice for dinner. Will go back soon.
From the moment we walked in the door, we were impressed. The restaurant is quiet, cozy, and very welcoming. The staff were amazing and the food was delicious. I cannot wait to go back and try more of their amazing wine selection.
Excellent food, service, and ambiance! Worth every penny. Thank you, Wayne, for making this night so memorable:)
The Wine Cellar continues to be wonderfully reliable as a lovely spot for a special occasion, or just a great dinner. This time we enjoyed the seasonal prix fixe menu, along with some selections from the regular list. Especially important for us, the chef is quite accommodating and my husband's fussy requests for preparing his selections were not at all an issue. This is a place where the commitment to serve and please patrons is evident throughout. The atmosphere is white cloth and quiet lighting, and there is a charming back patio area lit with fairy lights. It is lovely to look at from inside through large windows, as well as to enjoy for those who like to be outside. The dessert we shared - Roasted Banana Pudding - was a memorable riff on the Southern classic. It was from the prix fixe menu, but we think it deserves a permanent spot!
This was our second time visiting Wine Cellar. The food was good, atmosphere perfect for quiet dining, and service quite good. We will definitely eat there again.
The service was great. Very nice restaurant. I'm still looking for a great steak. My husbands grouper was delicious (I ate most of his). My steak was ok, but nothing to write home about. Sorry! The bread was delicious. The wine list outstanding.
I really can't figure out why more people don't go to the Wine Cellar. We have been going here for at least 25 years and are never disappointed. Prices are not outrageous. Food and service are second to none. Hardest thing is choosing what to order. I guess most people would rather go to the chain restaurants and have the same old food and atmosphere. Their loss. Thanks again Wayne.
One of my favorite restaurants for service, food, and atmosphere
This was our first visit to Wine Cellars and we will return. The service and the food was outstanding. Our waiter, Bob, was very attentive and friendly. One negative was where we were seated. We felt isolated in a small room with a few tables and would have preferred to be in the larger area, but this will not deter us from returning.
The food was great! Our table was so secluded and romantic it was perfect! The wine was amazing so much selection. But it’s not cheap it’s very expensive a good place to go for a date or special occasion!
One of the best meals we had while we were in Flordia. If you love wine this is the place to come to.
As usual the food was very good and well prepared. Service was very good but you get the feeling that they are anxious to turn over the table . Had to remind the waiter that we wanted more time just to relax and talk a bit before we ordered.
Great restaurant. Fabulous and attentive waiter. Food was outstanding!
Our family enjoyed a wonderful meal in a pleasant environment. The service was excellent, there is ample parking and we were not hurried through our meal. We definitely return and I am pleased to recommend the Wine Cellar.
First time we had been here. It was very nice and wonderful for a special occasion.
The overall experience was good. The food (and drinks) are pricey and the portions small, but the quality of the food is excellent!
Overall fantastic. Super fresh ingredients and prepared to perfection.
The Wine Cellar is one of our favorite restaurants in Jacksonville. We live in St. Johns County and don't mind the drive for a great meal and excellent service. The staff is very accommodating and attentive to us.
The Wine Cellar never disappoints. Good cooking, comfortable seating, quiet surroundings and attentive service. A much too often forgotten gem.
The food is very good however our waiter started out good and then several other couples were seated in his area and then the service turned from good to bad. Couldn't get his attention and it took a while to have our dinner plates cleared. Not what you would expect for this level restaurant.
Our first time dining at this establishment was an awesome experience. The server was well versed and extremely knowledgeable regarding the food and pleasant when making adjustments to an entree. He was pleasant and friendly. The food was excellent and memorable. I can still recall the flavors and warmth of each bite! The tables are a bit close together thwarting private conversations. Great choice! Will return!
Atmosphere was very conducive for great conversation. Server was friendly and helpful. Everyone enjoyed their selection especially the fried asparagus and crab, and quiche. The only issue was that the crab and lobster bisque soup could have been warmer. All-in-all, we’ll be back.
We have eaten there 6-7 times and the menu and dinner were outstanding. I would urge anyone looking for a memorable time to go.
Excellent experience -- food was well presented and very good. The serviced provided by Karen, the young woman who served our table, was engaging, knowledgeable and most friendly. She did a good job. We would hope she will wait on us next time we are at the Wine Cellar.
Tried Wine Cellar for NYE and the cuisine was very unique and everything was tasty. Our server, Gary, was also a great addition to the evening.
Wonderful New Year’s Eve venue for people who want to talk.
Went there for New Year's Eve dinner. Great atmosphere, Efficient service. A bit pricey but excellent food.
Outstanding meals for New Years Eve! One in our party ordered from the special four-course menu and the other two of us ordered from ala carte menu- lobster tail trio, salmon, and filet mignon were our entrees- all delicious!
Had plenty of time pre-show and Kay paced our early NYE dinner perfectly. Special night with family from out of town & they are foodies and LOVED everything.
Best lunch menu in JAX that I have seen in the 21 years living here
Excellent as always
The Wine Cellar never disappoints. It is always an above and beyond dining experience.
My wife and I have eaten here before concerts by the Jacksonville Symphony and have never been disappointed in the service -- attentive yet not intrusive -- or the food -- unfailingly excellent.
Food was outstanding, the service was awesome. Seated our group early and did not miss a beat for service even when asking to bring out food in proper increments. All was warm if it should be.
Our service is normally wonderful but service was lacking on Saturday night.
Fabulous food and ambience. All four of us finished every morsel of food on our plates. Outstanding meal!!!
Wine Cellar has been my favorite and most recommended restaurant in Jax for 40 years
we have been dining at the wine cellar for many years and have never been disappointed.
I loved it up until my main course was served. The duck, upon recommendation was what I ordered. I was VERY disappointed. It was not cooked well, very tough, fat not seared or rendered down. The appetizer and my dates tuna were amazing. Server was good but didn't comment to me or question why I left most of my dinner untouched.
The lamb chops were so tender and cooked exactly to order, something that I can only find in only one other restaurant in town. Superb service.
