The wine sampler was a meal for 2! Filet and ahi tuna were cooked perfectly. Good wine selection. Great live music, acoustic Spanish gduitarist.

All of what the Cellar Door has to offer makes for a very nice experience with your spouse or a cool hangout with a group. I know, have done both and both occasions were memorable!

I love the location and ambience. They have live music which is great. It was my husband's birthday and our 25th wedding anniversary. They did not do anything out of the way to make our customer experience special. I would not go there to celebrate anything special. Maybe just happy hour every now and then. They have a wine club and events based on the website and material on the dinner table, no one took time out to talk to us about them...

We were greeted and seated promptly upon arrival. Our server was confident and polite. We both ordered wine and appetizers. My husband had the crab cakes (which were delicious) and I had the pork belly. Mine was a tad bit over cooked and dry towards the last bites but it was large and filling portion. For our main course I ordered the same crab cakes my husband ordered for his appetizer only my sauce seemed to taste a little off from his serving. He ordered the pork chop (delicious) and the lobster bisque. The soup was heavy on the flour taste. It was such a shame because we both really wanted to like the bisque. Our server graciously offered us a complimentary dessert for our 16th anniversary. We chose the creme brulee which did not disappoint. They had a live band going and it added to the ambiance. All in all it was a great evening and our server was awesome!

I was told when reading the menu that this was a steak place and that’s what they’re known for so with that in mind, I ordered a rib eye medium rare. To my disappointment, the steak was over cooked, tough and tasteless. I was with my family and everyone else at the table seemed ok with their choices. Hubby got a filet mignon, one daughter ordered a burger with truffle fries and the other order fish and chips. The fish & chips looked wonderful and she really enjoyed them. I did have the lobster bisque to start and that was soooo tasty. It was so disappointing that the steak was not well prepared.

It took us 40 minutes to get our food (at 6pm). When it finally came, my wife's food was barely warm and my pan seared fish was way over cooked and hard to chew.

Nice atmosphere. Band playing. Good food but the service was slow and the food did not all come out together for the table. The food was not hot either, showing it sat a bit. Otherwise really great place.

This restaurant really caters to wine lovers, which I am not, so my review is solely based on the atmosphere, service, and food quality. As such, this was a very good, but not excellent, restaurant for couples and small groups to dine. We each had the "Chef's Special" three-course meal, each choosing lobster bisque, and 8oz Filet Mignon, and desert. The bisque was flavorful and creamy, but not quite as good as I've had at other high-end restaurants. The filets were tender and cooked correctly; however the reduced-wine glaze taste overpowered the beef flavor by a fair margin. The asparagus side had a good flavor but the lower half of the stalk was quite chewy. The two desserts available were chocolate mousse and Crème Brulee, both good but not spectacular.
The service and the general atmosphere were both excellent. Little things can sometimes stand out to me, and I did notice a few gnats/fruit flies and the air conditioning / comfort level could be improved.
Overally, I feel this is generally a very good choice for casual fine dining, with late-night music and wine service that stands out.

Outstanding service and overall experience. Food was very good. Very small crowd for a Saturday night which is odd, but would go again in the future.

The service here was superb! Excellent food. Loved the ambiance - low key and fairly quiet, which made it a nice dining experience to be able to talk with dinner companions. Enjoyed the live music - the saxophone player. I am looking forward to dining here again! Highly recommend this restaurant!

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.
