The food was absolutely incredible. Dan Dan Noodles had a little too much 5 Spice for our taste (a bit of a sweeter spice) but was still cooked very well and the kale complimented it very well. The kimchi fries & vegan cheese board were both to die for, and of course an incredible wine list as well as tap list!

Absolutely LOVE The Cellar! It is a great, local spot with unique different dishes and a cool, urban chic vibe. They have an extensive wine and drink menu and the wait staff is friendly, attentive and accomodating. They often have daily specials for both food and drinks. Pre-covid there was a more extensive menu which hopefully will return again as things normalize. For people with food sensitivities they offer a lot of dishes that are or can be vegan or gluten free. Definitely a place to come back to again and again!!

We sat at a high top and our waiter was also a bartender - win, win! He was very friendly, attentive and knew how to make a drink. The food was very good. We would definitely go back here again.

Service is always impeccable at The Cellar. Wine and cocktail list is extensive. Food is fantastic ~ everything I’ve ever had at The Cellar is outstanding in taste and presentation! A must visit when in Corning! And be sure to save room for their creme brûlée, or any of their desserts!

This is our go to restaurant whenever we are in the Corning area. The entire experience is excellent, from service to atmosphere. As a vegan there is always an option for each part of the menu (appetizer through desert, all made on site!). And I cannot say enough about the food!! It is inventive, flavorful, and incredibly delicious!! My wife and I have been going here for years and you should too!! Make a reservation! You will not be disappointed!!

The food was excellent and the service was quite good. At first the staff paid a little too much attention to us as we conversed, but during the main course they pretty much ignored us and didn’t offer to refill my wine glass until I was nearly finished. My guests were very pleased with their meals (“the Kobe steak was the best beef I have had in years.”) and my salmon gnocchi was excellent.

Food was very good. However it was very disturbing that the water was not wearing a mask. He had a face shield on which would not filter virus particles if he was infected. Let’s just hope he is not an asymptomatic COVID carrier.

We're sorry that you were disappointed. We are a single location family run establishment trying to stay afloat and support our staff and community while running with government restrictions and a weary public due to COVID. Our current menu & pricing is available on our front door, website and a variety of other platforms. Since we are working with a limited staff, it may be smaller than normal. I think we can agree we all hope to return to more normal society very soon. Best Wishes

Excellent! My only complaint is I don’t think that the server wearing a face shield was appropriate. Would feel much more comfortable if wearing a cloth mask. Otherwise, bravo!

Centrally located on historic Main St in Corning, NY. The layout of the restaurant is very welcoming with ample space and partitions between parties. The half-moon booths enhanced the catered to feel. The staff was very welcoming, respected current health guidelines while attending appropriately to our meal. The menu was ample and inventive and the food didn't disappoint. The risotto was tasty and the chicken with waffles and brussels slaw was delicious. Portion sizes were ample but appropriate. A good selection of local beers, ciders and finger lakes wines was offered. We found the overall experience to be excellent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. The meal value was particularly good as well.

The Cellar is our local go-to restaurant, for date nights and special occasions. From the specialty martinis to small plates, cheese or meat boards, and entrees, it's a home run. Every. Single. Time. To say nothing of the desserts!

While everything we've had there is prepared meticulously (the cooks could seriously compete on a Food Network show), they are particularly adept at searing scallops, the chicken & waffles dish is a staple everyone should try, and the homemade ice cream is bomb. (My wife prefers the salted caramel) But if creme brûlée is your thing, you won't be disappointed.

Servers are knowledgeable and attentive and Kyle (their resident mixologist) is a magician. You can't lose.

We dined at The Cellar for the first time and will make many more visits. The waiter served with incredible style and helped us by describing entrees that had our mouths watering. In addition, he provided just the right amount of attentiveness without being overbearing or neglecting us.
The food was fantastic! We both had flat breads, one with shrimp and the other with mushrooms and roasted garlic. The portions were substantial and we could have shared one of the flat breads and been satisfied. The blend of ingredients were chosen and prepared by a master.
Definitely a place to go if you haven't been!

It was a great experience! First time dining there. Everything was so tasty and beyond my expectations! Highly recommend their fried chicken/cauliflower waffle. The batter tastes flavorful with a little bit of spice, and the sweet glaze on top was not overwhelmingly sweet but just on point! I have to say the restaurant really knows how to make Brussel sprouts! They made them so tasty!

I really appreciate that the restaurant offered many vegan and vegetarian options, and they also cooked the vegetarian dishes so well!

I would definitely love to visit the restaurant again some time in the future!
