Everything was great. We hadn't come here for many years, so there was a bit of sticker shock. But we'll come again for a special occasion.
Great place. Take my wife here for special occasions. We love it.
Food is delicious. Service is great. Real cool. Ambiance/vibe.
I love this place. My go to restaurant for special occasions so for my 40th birthday here’s where I celebrate. The food and service is always superb!
Very nice experience. Interesting ambiance, very good food and drink. Our waiter, Mark, was courteous and helpful. Most important, he did not rush our evening dining experience. Menus were not given until we had our drinks, etc.
The lobster bisque was wonderful as were our entrees.
Our anniversary was incredible! Coming back next year.
Wonderful ambiance, quiet, dark and cozy. Food is always excellent, and service impeccable. Bar and wine list is extensive. The Cellar is expensive - but worth it - especially for special occasions!
Back to The Cellar for our anniversary dinner. Another great experience. The food was perfect. I had a filet and my wife had lamb shank. Both were perfectly cooked and tasty. The service was, once again, exceptional, with Malynn being perhaps one of the best servers we've ever had at The Cellar in over 8 years of going there. She was attentive, helpful and never intrusive. As always, the drinks from the bar were well made and always a little unique. It was a great experience and that's why we keep coming back.
My wife & i where celebrating our anniversary, This place was a very pleasant discovery. it is unique. the food was delicious, well prepared and presented.m we would go there again.
The food and service was excellent, will definitely go again.
20 years ago best ever, Tonight it was terrible.’ I will not go back. Slow service to get food, waiter forgetful, food very salty andWe mentioned it and they did nothing. Do not go!
Such great service!!! Jimmy was our waiter but everyone who helped and brought out our drinks and food were awesome too! Drinks were great! I love how intimate the atmosphere is. Thanks!
This was my first time dinning at The Cellar. I enjoyed the drinks, food and service. Everything was great and I will definitely go back soon. The atmosphere was very romantic, it’s a great place for a date.
The appetizers and deserts were excellent. Nice wine list. Service was excellent. Down side our meal Halibut was over cooked and much to salty. Based on our meals would not recommend this restaurant. Very disappointed )-:
Very unique and delicious and is my new favorite place
Had escargot and scallops and my date got wagu beef - I love the potato chip with Creme fraiche and caviar at the outset - not really like a potato chip - and Creme brûlée yum!!!
Excellent service and amazing Filet Mignon. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We requested for
The Chateaubriand, even though cooked to medium rare, was dry and clearly not prime quality. Vegetables were overdone and mushy. I would be embarrassed to serve them in my home. The Chocolate Soufflé was sweet but lacked any chocolate flavor. The salted caramel sauce was insipid and watery. The waiter seemed to struggle with the specials for the evening. The only saving
grace, the drinks were excellent. This is plainly NOT one of Orange County’s best restaurants. We will not be returning.
It was my first time visiting The Cellar and it was amazing! The food, service and just our overall experience. I brought my best friend here for her birthday and we really enjoyed everything.
A quiet space reflecting the description is just the choice if you are looking to dine quietly with mid-century lyrics playing in the background. The food is excellent if a bit limited on the menu, but it still is calling us back, as this was our first visit.
My wife (42 years married) and I had one of the finest dinners ever. 14 April 2018. The food, service was superb. She ordered the Duck, I had the chateaubriand with scallops. The only thought I could offer is don’t change the menu it doesn’t justify changing. Thank your staff for us, we will return soon.
Waiter was wonderful. Food was great. Salted carmel souffle to die for. And you've got to
try the lobster bisque.
I’ve always loved The Cellar. The food was wonderful. And so was the service.
First time at the Cellar. The reason we went there was we heard it could accommodated gluten free customers. Nice comfortable restaurant without a lot of noise. The food was very good and the servers were very attentive. Overall an excellent experience. The only complaint I have is my own fault. My wife ordered a Mint Julip type drink (can't remember the name) but it was a very smokey drink. Very good, but it killed my tastebuds for the wine which followed with dinner. (My bad)
My wife had the French onion soup which was very thick and rich. For the main course we decided to try the Chateaubriand for two. It was cooked medium rare and served with Roasted fingerling potatoes and carrots. Since my wife is gluten free she could not try the Demiglace which was excellent over the cuts but unfortunately one of the few items that was not gluten free. For desert I had the Vanilla Souffle with Grand Marnier Anglaise. Which was a perfect end to a fine meal. My wife had the Crem Brulee.
My recommendation for the gluten free crowd (or anyone else for that matter) as most of their menu is gluten free, without compromising taste.
Husbands 40th bday
Such wonderful service and ambiance. We had a fabulous time. We were seated in a special booth were Liz Taylor had been proposed too twice 😍
This was just the right spot for a date. My date absolutely loved it. Great ambience, food was amazing. I recommend the lamb. Patrick, out server was an absolute delight. Will most definitely be going back and recommend this place to any person on a date or special occasion
Our server, Andrew, was very helpful, attentive, and kind the whole night to our large party. The handcrafted cocktails were amazing. You can't even really taste the alcohol. I especially loved my scallops dish and the red snapper special. It was so nice of them to give a creme brulee to the birthday people in our group. The decor was so great especially since I love the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. :D Thank you so much for a wonderful night and memory.
This is the second time my wife and I visited the Cellar and each time is an outstanding experience. Their food is outstanding only exceeded by their service. The price is fair, but not somewhere we could afford to eat often, except for special occasions, still the food is great, and cannot wait to visit again.
Great ambiance as you are entering into a true cellar. Brace yourself for the dark, but your eyes slowly adjust to see a really nice restaurant with a medieval-antique-old english-cave. Not cheesy, just really different. Excellent service. Drinks and food also excellent. One member of the group said it was the best fish dish they ever had. We all had a long day in an industrial setting, so coming to the Cellar was a great way to change the scenery and have a great meal together.
Best dining experience I’ve ever had. The restaurant was beautiful. The service was second to none. The food was divine. This was definitely a night to remember.
This place was excellent! We came on a whim to try something new and were beyond impressed. Food was amazing. Cocktails were amazing. Service was amazing. Everything was amazing.
The Cellar was an awesome experience! The only low point was that the online menu was NOTHING like the one the night we dined there. The staff was so attentive and did apologize for the inconsistency between online and actual food options. Otherwise the meal was wonderful.
All the staff were very nice but the service couldn’t have been slower. We waited forever to get a menu, drinks, entrees, and the check.
No one came by in between.
Fantastic restaurant!! I'd been putting off going to this restaurant only because it's on my doorstep. Crazy really when I have a restaurant of this caliber so close to home.
I must speak highly of our waiter (Adrian). A young and very polite, knowledgeable attendant who enhanced our overall experience for our wedding anniversary dinner.
The food was delightful, and the location/décor is very authentic being in the cellar of an historic building in Fullerton downtown.
This is a must place to try for anyone who appreciates fine dining.
We had a very nice time and were well taken care of. One thing tho, there was a misunderstanding about the wine and Andrew didn't pick it up. Don wanted a glass not a whole bottle. We didn't realize it till it was too late.
There was no need to make a fuss about it but we will make sure the waiter understands the next time we come. Don and Barbara Clawson
The cocktails were excellent. The food was average. The service was average as well. I would go back for some appetizers and cocktails. The restaurant is small and cozy.
The food was AMAZING. Service was great. The only other comment I have is our food did take a very long time. It was nice not to be rushed, however we noticed that the table next to us did get their food sooner than us and they got there afterwards. So not sure if it was because we ordered a soup and there is a bit of a deliberate delay between the soup and main entree. Overall experience was just incredible. We were able to stay late and talk and catch up and didn't have to rush out.
Wonderful service, not too obtrusive and very knowledgable. Well tended to with friendly hostess. Food was excellent down to the rolls and decaf coffee. We had a wonderful cheese platter with lots of accompaniments that complimented the cheeses. Great dinner with inventive veggies. Drinks were all fab and so many to choose from!
Overall the food and service was amazing. Our server Mark was kind and well informed about the menu. Will definitely be going back.
Great food and surroundings
