In 1969, artistic craftsmen of Disneyland fame created a romantic rendezvous in the cellar of the old California Hotel. The Cellar is the perfect setting for an intimate and romantic evening of fine dining. Patrons will find themselves enjoying fine French cuisine while comfortably seated in soft velvet-backed chairs upholstered in rich mellow leather and surrounded by a dimly lit interior. Intimate and cozy, the dining room is elegant amid structured arches and cave-like walls, decorated with wine casks and silver lanterns. Culinary excellence abounds with only the finest and freshest foods prepared in a lighter version of classical French cuisine, and finely crafted cocktails which set a benchmark for all of Southern California!

Join us for a full dining experience, or simply stop by for some of the best cocktails in Orange County and perhaps a small plate or two!

Exquisite dining experience. Amazing ambience. The food is outstanding. The decorations, architecture, and music takes you back to the roaring 20s and the golden age of Hollywood.

We had an amazing dine experience at the Cellar. Even though we live very nearby, this was the first time for us to visit the Cellar. I made a reservation for my husband's birthday dinner. I asked the restaurant if they could arrange something decorated on a dessert plate for his birthday such as "Happy Birthday" and they replied me to say "Yes". However, when we arrived at the restaurant, it seemed staff didn't know anything about it, so I had to ask again while my husband left for bathroom. It's just a small matter, the restaurant staff was really helpful to arrange it. Regarding the meal, we had "Escargot" as appetizer, "Classic Chateaubriand for Two" as main dish, and "Classic Souffle" & "Creme Brulee" for dessert. Every single meal is so delicate and so excellent. Overall, I am so impressed by food quality, atmosphere, service. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We were glad to be back and it felt very normal to be there. They implemented all the necessary safety precautions but it was very well done and we felt safe dining in. As usual the service and the food were amazing. We had a great time celebrating Father’s Day and we can’t wait to go back again.

Awesome dining experience! First time back after their reopen. Service was outstanding as usual and the food was excellent. Had a very good Pisco Sour and delicious lobster bisque. Can not wait for their supply chain to reopen so that their full menu can be brought back. Looking forward to the complete end of restrictions from the state as The Cellar is a terrific place to dine.

Excellent food and outstanding service. If you've never been to the Cellar, you should definitely go. One of a few very upscale restaurants in the area. The filet, salmon and duck were all exceptional as were the souffles and the creme brulet.

This was our first time here and we were blown away. We brought our 11 year old and even she had an amazing experience. Absolutely no complaints and we will definitely be back!
