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!

Simply fantastic. From the moment you step through the door, the service is impeccable. Food and drink choices are always above par. I’ll be back.

Old school fine dining establishment that did not disappoint. My parents have been coming here for decades and recommended it for an extra special date night. We had a wonderful evening. Incredible service, divine food, and a one of a kind environment. Truly a gem of Orange County. Will definitely be back.

Great food, and top notch cocktails. But it was extremely overbooked and took two hours to get the main course, far too slow with a huge empty gap between second course and the main. Server was wonderful. Ambiance is creative yet contrived. Feels too expensive for what are fairly typical dishes, but they are high quality.

Pro tip: Don’t schedule more reservations than your kitchen can handle!

Outstanding venue!!! Staff was on point with the professionalism and was very friendly which added so much to our first experience here at this establishment. The food was superb. Not for a cheap date. If you bring your lady/gentlemen here they better be special because the ambiance is perfect to set the mood and have great conversation. Very cozy and intimate. If you live in Fullerton and haven’t been here, you need to make your reservation and NOW!!!!!

Special Valentine’s Day menu was disappointing to say the least.
They should stay with their usual menu which is so much better.
We’ll return to the Cellar again but never during the week of Valentine’s Day.

Thanks to Adrian and the team at "The Cellar." Many years had passed since I had come here with our Meetup Group, friends and future amazing treasured friends/family in my life. Appreciate the time, care and attention to detail on a special occasion at "The Cellar." Adrian was superb in anticipating needs, listening and satisfying the diverse needs of our group (s). Red Roses on the table brought elegance to the dining room. Thanks.

Food was only OK. Don't know what they did to the potatoes. Waiter was forced-friendly. My wife had a Jack and soda; $12 for the Jack and $1 for the soda??
They charge too much for what you get.
