    What a lovely dining experience! Courtney was our server and was spectacular! We opted out of dessert despite a birthday at the table and she found ways to make it really special with fun surprises. Thank you Courtney!!

    The food was amazing. Every element of the swordfish schnitzel (fish, beurre blanc, spatzle, red cabbage, kale) was beautifully prepared. A creative take on a German classic. Lisa was a wonderful server. Noise level was our only complaint. Annoying rather than “energetic” as you call it.

    I reserved a table for my wife and myself on our 10th wedding anniversary by complete accident. We were visiting Corning and I needed a place to eat, well, we were in for a beautiful surprise! The hostess knew it was our anniversary and assigned us one of the two window seats, which I absolutely loved! Our waiter was friendly, and efficient explaining the specials. When we received our drinks, someone approached us at the table and said hello, it was the owner – Chef Michael! We had a wonderful chat about working in kitchens as I am a former cook. You have to be awfully confident about your establishment to go out and speak with customers. And now the most important part, the food was spectacular! Absolutely the best meal I’ve had in New York State in years. Who would’ve thunk, in Corning, New York, that you could eat so well?!! Words can’t describe it, so I won’t even try. If you’re looking for fabulous food, great ambience, and professional service, The Cellar is the place to be. Although Corning is 90 miles away from our house, my wife and I are already planning on returning for another beautiful meal and heading right back home.

    Our server was great, very approachable and friendly. Food was okay. Not bad at all, but also not amazing. The cheese board was good. The fried broccoli was fantastic. Lamb lollipops were okay but not special. The focaccia and olive oil was okay but not great. Drinks were good but not great. There were several tables with great ambience, but ours ended up being under some bright lights in a booth shared with another table, so that was disappointing. Overall assessment was that we enjoyed our visit, but it wasn't spectacular, and the bill felt a bit precious for what we received. Definite kudos to our waiter who was the best that we have had in memory.

    My husband and I have gone here to the Cellar twice now in one week. They have a good selection of food and meet several different food allergies. I have Celiac, so I cannot eat anything with Gluten, and they had a great selection of Gluten-Fee dishes. They have a a huge, and I mean huge, selection of cocktails and wine. The menu for cocktails and wine is multiple pages and is bigger than their food menu. The prices are a little high for some things, but the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is comfortable and beautiful. The staff are all super kind and fun. I recommend the Cellar and we will be back.

    Everything was absolutely excellent! From the cocktail at the bar to our appetizers and dinner. We greatly appreciate the owner coming out and helping us select a wine. And it’s such a pleasure to dine in a restaurant where there’s wonderful accommodations for people with gluten allergies. We have dined there over a half a dozen times and every time we are delighted with our experience. Thank you so much.

    Best food in Corning. We had the surf and turf special for New years weekend and it was AMAZING. It was really easy to make a reservation online and we were able to have a great anniversary dinner. Unfortunately I wasn't feeling well and our waitress went above and beyond to check on me and get me some hot tea. So big shout out to Kourtney for the best service!!

    Had $150 gift card. Took my wife and 2 kids. Had 2 glasses of wine, 1 soda, a 4oz cup of soup, some bread and olive oil, my kid had an app for a meal, a burger and my wife and I had 2 dishes and the cost was $257. That's without tip. Food was ok, not great but wasn't good enough for that kind of money. After tip I still had to spend $150 out of my pocket. Will not be going back anytime soon.

    I am always disappointed by the entrees. I come back each time for the small plates but feel the entrees are not worth the price. But hey, best brussel sprouts I've ever had in my life and the drinks are good.
