We hate a great time! David was spot-on taking care of our food and wine. Live music made for a great date night!

My favorite place to eat in Katy. The food is always delicious, and it's one of the few places you can go with friends and actually have a conversation because it's not too noisy. Very calm. They also have a delicious house wine. It's hard to beat!

The wine was very good. Waitress used her hand to wipe the top of the bottle drip. Food was okay but nothing exceptional. Dinner came out 5 minutes after the meat and cheese starter. After we got our food, went 25 minutes before waitress checked in. Then went another 20 after that for next check in. Place was not busy at all. When I spend over $60 per person on food and wine, I expect a lot more.

Went for Valentines day, thought it would have been great and easy service since everyone was getting the same meal. We waited a long time and the food was only warm when it was served. It had good flavor, I think it was just sitting for a while before we received it. Probably wont be back for food, will stick to just a glass of wine.

Great place to listen to some light jazz (ish) music. Food is delicious and wine list is superior. Do not be fooled by the strip center you are in... this really is a great place with a romantic interior.

As usual our dining experience at the The Cellar Door was terrific. The Flaty Iron Steak is amazing as is the Polenta. And the selection of reasonably-priced terrific wines is awesome. A must if you're in the area.

This is the second time we’ve been at The Cellar Door, and as the first time they didn’t disappoint us. We didn’t feel like eating a big meal so we just ordered appetizers and they were to die for. The Pork belly starter is so moist and flavorful and the ahi tuna was seared to perfection! Their service is first class and the ambiance is so good! We will be back!

First time dining here. Our server was great. The wine was tasty. The sides were delicious. My particular fish batter was soggy and like warm. Certainly wasn’t the best I’ve had. I didn’t really mention anything cause I was on a date but it would have made the experience better had my foot been savory.

Food and wine were great. A little pricy for the lack of attention to detail from the wait staff. Expect to pay about $70pp with 2 glasses of wine. All in all we liked it though and will be back.

The food was excellent - the service was a bit slow, took 20 minutes to get a piece of cake and tentative - it was noisy for us but that was not the restaurant's fault as a large table of ladies sat next to us and were not real concerned about those around them.

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was lovely, the place was quaint and the service was OUTSTANDING!! I've already told many of my friends about this place! We can't wait to have another date night so that we can check out again!

The truffle fries are very good. Hot and tasty. Two stars for it. Everything else was horrible. Chicken empanada (off menu suggested by waiter) tasted like it was heated in the microwave. Five cheese flat bread tasted like a under-cooked Parade pizza (and I like Parade pizza). And the top bread on the chicken sliders were still attached from the package they came in. Not toasted or dressed.

Just horrible.
