Service was good and the atmosphere was just okay. The steak was delicious but everything else was good but not great for the price. I thought it was a little too expensive for the quality of food.

We appreciated all of the care given by the restaurant to being safe. This was a belated birthday celebration that turned out wonderfully. Fearing the pandemic we were hesitant but found everything handled very well. Our waiter Gary did an excellent job making sure everything was just right. The chef cooked the food exactly as requested. We ordered the trio which was more than enough for the 2 of us. The steak was done exactly as asked, and the shrimp and scallops were delicious. We truly enjoyed our evening - didn't feel rushed or crowded.

Wine Cellar is my favorite "go to" for visiting friends and family special events. The menu is dependable and never fails. Wine list is excellent. Service is always perfect. There is not a bad seating in the place - all the corners and little rooms are wonderful.

This is my mother in laws favorite restaurant. We took her for her birthday. They checked everyone's temp before being seated. Tables were very spread out. We felt very distanced but atmosphere was very warm. They take the rules seriously. The food was excellent. My husband and I ordered the trio to get a little bit of what we loved. The filet was perfect, scallops delicious as was the shrimp. Key lime pie for dessert was one of the best we've had. We mentioned a birthday when we made the reservations and they remembered and brought out a candle with dessert. Our server was excellent. Wonderful experience!

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.

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!

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!!!

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.
