Amazing restaurant. Garfield is our favorite waiter there and he always makes us feel at home. It was a treat to get out and I highly recommend the abalone and salmon!

Went for an early dinner and had a gift card but still spent $145 - wine by the glass is a little overpriced.

We were there to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. Wine Cellar is her favorite restaurant for lunch. We were welcomed when we arrived, they seated us in a comfortable location. The waiter was attentive with our drinks, ordering our lunch, and the timely presentation of our food. The quality of the food was exceptional and everyone loved what they ordered - which ranged from cheese fondue, ahi tuna tartare, salads, fish tacos, and sandwiches - then special sundae for the birthday lady followed with pecan tart and chocolate fondue. Fun was had by all!!!

We do not live close by so this was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our eggs benedict. Our waiter was great. The weather was perfect for sitting outdoors. Looking forward to going for lunch in the near future.

Prefixed menu for Valentines Day. Waiter forgot to deliver one of the four courses, but he could remember to deliver the bill - go figure! Steak was served cold and bland. Avoid this place when crowded or on a prefixed menu. Not worth the price at all.

We came here for a Valentines Day dinner and really enjoyed the food, the wine, and the service. We had a pre-fix menu, but we still had plenty of choices. A bit pricey but for a special date it was great :) will recommend to others!

We ate at the Wine Cellar 2 years ago on Valentine's Day and it was great. This year was not as good.

For Valentine's Day, there is a 4 course meal and a 2 hour sitting. We were served our main meal immediately after we finished our appetizers. I was disappointed as I was still drinking the wine I ordered for the appetizer. It was not a good wine for the main. And, I was feeling rushed. After eating about 1/3 of our main meal, we were served the second course (a special dish that was to be served after appetizers and before the main). This second course was sweet and didn't go with the main so it sat at the table and melted. I looked at the time and we had been there for about 45 minutes. The food was delicious but the pace was very fast, especially since it's an expensive meal.

Took a bit before we got a waiter who I believe stepped in though our table wasn’t his. After that all went smoothly. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

Our server didn’t approach us till 20-25 minutes after getting seated. When our server finally got to us, she wasn’t welcoming. Food was okay, seafood pasta was disappointing, given that I have had their food before and my friends rave about their food.

Overall, service and food was okay.
