A truly wonderful culinary experience. Highly professional staff welcomed us outside the door to confirm our reservation. We were immediately seated at our table and the excellent staff greeted us with quick, amicable service. My husband has a severe garlic allergy and our server quickly summoned chef owner Micheal. He was a gem and quickly told my husband the Waygu steak was a wonderful option he could verify zero garlic cross contamination. Our daughter loved her chicken adobo, and I loved he salmon. Magnificent wine list too.

Best food and chef in Corning. Try the chicken & waffles and dark chocolate lava cake with homemade salted caramel ice cream! Mike, Ellen, and their staff are top notch. We can't praise them enough for their wonderful service and amazing quality of food.

Wonderful ambiance, dim lighting but perfect for a romantic evening minus the slightly elevated noise level given the small space, which all in all, isnt so bad to be honest. Just a personal preference, but if I am to be honest and speak of the establishment as a whole, I would give it an A+

One of my favorite restaurants, we love to come to the area for the museum, the wineries, breweries, biking and paddle boarding. We always try different restaurants in the surrounding area, but always come back to The Cellar as the chef never disappoints. There is something for every palate on the menu and the service and ambiance are superb. Small to large plates, all fairly priced. Highly recommend this to anyone!!

You can't help the ambience because of co-vid but I think it was actually pretty nice to be outdoors. The only problem was we ended up in the sun even though when I made reservations I requested a place in the shade. I don't think that was altogether the fault of restaurant because the sun moved....All in all - I love the Cellar, I think the chef is amazing, the servers are wonderful. I always have a memorable night there.

We were very pleasantly surprised for dinner at The Cellar. This was the first time for us. Our server, Leif, was very helpful in guiding our choices. The food was absolutely delicious and the lava cake to die for! We hope to make the trip to Corning again and would be happy to dine at The Cellar again.

Amazing food and service. If you’re looking for some delicious, unique food, you’ll find it here. Servers are attentive and friendly. Great selection of wine and beer. Atmosphere is romantic. Food is pricey but worth every penny. Still thinking about how good the food was days later!

Wow! Delicious meal. We started with poutine (think cheese and gravy fries) delicious!! For entrees we had the Kobe Beef, Salmon and Scallops. Perfection. All plates were cleaned and we went away full. We are never disappointed and always try something new.

Some of the very best meals we’ve had in the region. Kyle’s mixology is outstanding. The man has terrific finesse when creating various cocktails. Brussels have well balanced flavors. Scallops are ALWAYS on point. Great dessert choices and the French press puts it over the top.

This was my first meal at a restaurant since my celiac diagnosis and I was very nervous to say the least! The menu has so many gluten free options and there was no cross contamination with the food that I ate. I even brought charcoal tablets with me, but didn't end up needing them. The food was beyond delicious and I was even able to get a gluten free dessert. I'm so happy that there's now a "safe" restaurant for me to go to! This restaurant is extremely celiac friendly.

The staff are friendly and attentive. We ate at the outside tables set up along the main street that they have closed to cars .
Excellent yellow and red beet salad to start , then shrimp ceviche which was authentic and perfectly done.
my husband enjoyed the scallop special and i had lamb lollipops .
Everything was terrific ..a little pricey but worth the results ..

Overall the Cellar was a good experience. Very happy they have outdoor seating as we are not planning on eating indoors any time soon. Appetizers were really good: popcorn and Brussels sprouts. The special was sea bass....excellent. My husband and sister had the duck carnitas and it was disappointing. Very little flavor to the duck and the purple rice was bland, bland, bland.
Our server Leif was excellent. We will return but won’t order the duck!

Waiter was overwhelmed and never came to check on us once until after our meal was almost done. My husband and to yell to him as he ran by to see if we could have another drink and then again for salt and pepper (which he ended up having to get himself since waiter didn’t hear him). I get being busy and we were patient knowing maybe extra time could have to go into disinfecting items and covid precautions but we shouldn’t have to chase someone down to take dishes, ask how the meal was, get another drink, salt and pepper, etc. He even had a food runner to bring us the food when it came out so he didn’t have to do that.

Our appetizers were excellent and my husbands dish was delicious. However my $45 kobe steak didn’t have one bit of seasoning on it. I was expecting to be blown away from it but we ended up bringing it home so it didn’t go to waste, salt would’ve made a huge difference. We usually have a great experience here so I’ll be back to give it another go, just disappointing when you haven’t gotten out for date night dinner in months and then have a poor experience.
