Baby back ribs very good. Have never had a bad meal at the Wine Cellar
Excellant food and service! Just a little noisy!
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!
Great location, outdoor dining perfect, hostess/waiter made us feel important and special, yummy and reasonably priced dishes...just go, you will not regret it!
Went for an early dinner and had a gift card but still spent $145 - wine by the glass is a little overpriced.
Great food and staff
Amazing dinner at the Wine Cellar celebrating our son’s 30th birthday
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!!!
Great variety of dishes in a lovely setting.
Had a reservation and was seated immediately. Service was quick and friendly. Food was (as always) excellent. We will be back again.
Food excellent, value good. A bit noisy and tables crowded together
Nice atmosphere, great food, awesome location. Our first time there and we really enjoyed it. We'll be back.
The Wine Cellar restaurant is amazing and has the best steaks....
Great food, lunch or dinner is always wonderful!
Always make a reservation as they stay busy!
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.
Dinner and service was very good. Garfield was our waiter and was really great.
Made reservations so we were seated promptly. Service was great and food was wonderful. Server was great at making wine suggestions.
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.
Had to bring 2nd NY steak since 1st one was overcooked...but recovered. A little overpriced but it was Valentine's Day.
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.
Wonderful Valentine’s Day menu. Food was great. Atmosphere Was so warm and special
Very nice Valentine Day dinner! Excellent food.
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.
It’s a nice place, goods good, just a little expensive for what you get.
We thoroughly enjoyed our out of town visit to Wine Alley and meeting up with family for brunch...the food was delicious and the staff were superb and friendly. Couldn't ask for anything more.
It was wonderful
My husband can't get enough of the crispy crab cakes. I am now torn between loving both the salmon and the lamb. The service and food are always fabulous!!
Food was amazing and the service spectacular!
Great food, great service!
We go to the wine cellar
For any family celebrations
Long time customer
Over the years
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.
Consistently amazing food and exceptional service. One of my favorite local restaurants with excellent and broad selection of menu items.
Good quality of food
Changed Stuffed Pork Chop dish which they have had fo ever... the change was not a good move. I wont have the new version again.
Our dinner was delicious. I had the short braised ribs which fell apart when taking a bite. Roasted artichokes are our favorites as not many place even offer these. Thank you for a delicious birthday dinner.
Great food as always ! I love their salmon.
Very enjoyable lunch with friends. I had the fish & chips, they use Sand Dabs which were excellent
