The service was less than exceptional. Our wine ND water glasses were empty three times and the waiter had to be told too many times. The food was great, but not worth the price.

Lobster bisque was excellent. My wife's salmon and crab dish was delicious with a wonderful sauce. My chicken dish was very tasty but lost a few points for being slightly over cooked like most restaurants tend to do but otherwise great sauce and perfectly done-creamy risotto. I would recommend this restaurant for date night or just a treat for any occasion.

We were disappointed in the food first. Rosemary, cinnamon, and other spices were not pleasing. Rather they were jarring and took away from what should have been a hearty porkchop, a tough porkchop at that.
And the noise was not energetic. It was loud with hardscapes enabling blatant interruptions of conversation and a pleasant time.
Last was our discussion of casual elegance as was described in the website. We were overdressed and the restaurant did not establish elegance. They hit the Mark with casual. However the price of the evening was not a casual bill.
I would not recommend this restaurant after one visit. Truthfully, we try almost any restaurant three times. This one we will not.

A romantic birthday celebration was dished out perfectly at our special night. The New Fashioned cocktail for him and a Pinot Noir for me, accompanied by the Cellar salad which was decorated with blue cheese and pecans. The trout with avocado mash was delish as the steak! We were then escorted by the staff straight to the Bays next door where we listened and danced to the lovely lyrics of Toni Byrd. We finished the night by sharing a chocolate cake and our dessert drinks. Indeed a memorable celebration! Thank you, Cellar! So thrilled that you are now re-opened! We’ll be back soon! 🤩

We went on a Wednesday, Colby was our server and was very attentive. He scored a $25 tip because of his continued desire to keep our drinks full, answered all the questions we had and gave us an insight on the entire Cellar Restaurant.

Very good food. I had the filet & he had the lamb. Nice wine list. They have a few healthier options which is nice to see. Service was not good but that’s not because our server wasn’t trying he’s just lacking in skill. The little details, knowing when to remove our plates & clear, forgetting to bring the salad out, knowing how to space the four course meal out, we had to ask for steak knifes, not even the runner dropped them off with entree & didn’t know the position of our food. It’s in the details but he was trying.
Do not sit by the front door on a cold night because there is a wicked breeze not sure if it needs to be fix.
We will be back, so far the food was yummy.

Overall experience was very good, food and overall ambiance we up to expectations. While the service was good it wasn't exceptional and food delivery was "abrupt. As i have eaten at the Cellar many times i can say that the service level has slipped which has detracted from my review ratings.

I knew we were in trouble when the host insisted on seating my trophy girlfriend and I next to the kitchen, even though there were several booths available. When the waiter arrived we begged him to move us to one. He obliged. The waiter was nice enough but clearly punching above his weight as he was not "fine dining" qualified. For this I fault management for not providing proper training and education. But it wasn't just the waiter. The plate delivery girl insisted on serving the male his meal first before that of his date. The first thing a food server is ever taught is that ladies at a table are always served before the gentlemen. The food itself was not hot. My pork chop was tough and plopped on top of tepid mashed sweet potatoes. When I went to saw through the chop the over salted mashed potato squished out allover the place. My girlfriend's lobster thing was tasty, but again not served piping hot. Desert was a chocolate pastry that was not prepared to order but possibly made that morning. Since the only reservation we could get on Saint Valentine's day was 10pm one can only imagine what a cold, greasy, hard thing they presented before us. The table sconce that was supposed to provide atmospheric mood lighting was so bright I felt I was being interrogated. I eventually draped my napkin over it. The waiter saw this but said nothing and did not offer bring me another napkin as a replacement. In fact, after the plates were delivered by the runner girl he did not check to see if our meals were satisfactory. He did not show up until it was time for check. A proper waiter would have checked on us immediately after the first or second bite. The Cellar was kind enough to discount our bill by seven and a half dollars for the tepid entrée, but at $250.00 for the evening I cant recommend dining here until they show remarkable improvement.

A fixed menu on Valentine's day, without any options for dietary restrictions. Everything had mushrooms and dairy, being pescaterians the only option was "lobster" pot pie. I normally love this place, however they fell short of the mark and two meals and two glasses of wine came to over $200. The server should have noticed something was off since we didn't take more than a bite or two from each course. Other than that, I recommend the cellar and bays when they have their regular menu.

The Cellar is one of the best restaurants in the Newnan area; I go there frequently. They have an innovative chef, an inspired cocktail menu, a pretty good beer and wine list, and generally good service. Much of the time there is live music and a choice of indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) seating.

We went for Valentine's Day and had the special dinner. Overall food was good but not great. The lobster in crust was basically a lobster pot pie. I had almost no lobster meat in my serving. The pear salad was great and the mushroom bisque very good. I found the cheese/mushroom appetizer heavy as well as the fried hazelnut ravioli for dessert. I know this is a local restaurant but they are charging Atlanta prices. We are use to something more for 75 dollars per person. Perhaps a rose on the table? Service was very good and we enjoyed the piano music. Our meal on New Year's Eve was terrific and this was much less memorable.

My wife and I have made The Cellar in Newnan our place to celebrate the milestones in our lives together. The service is excellent and the food is fantastic. We have eaten in many different places and we can honestly say we enjoyed The Cellar as much, if not more, than most places we’ve eaten. We are not big on flash and we always prefer a quiet table tucked away so we can enjoy each other’s company. The Cellar meets our expectations to a “T”.......
Thanks

A charming and unexpected find in Newnan, GA.
The restaurant had a nice ambiance and service was outstanding. Our waiter, Reggie, was spot on in his service and very engaging.
I very much enjoyed the Crab and Artichoke Salmon. The risotto was perfectly prepared.
My friend had the Filet and was very pleased as it was flavorful and perfectly cooked per her order.
Next time I pass through Newnan, I will definitely return.

The food, service, and atmosphere were outstanding. I had the salmon with a breaded crab topping and an artichoke, lemon, and caper sauce. It was heaven on a plate. Every bite was special. My spouse had the ribeye which was also outstanding. We arrived around 5:30 and the restaurant was quiet except for soft music playing in the background. Loved the peacefulness. Our complements to the chef! He really knows how to combine ingredients in a dish for the most enjoyable and flavorful experience. We WILL be back and I'm counting the days until our next visit. Thank you for a great dining experience.

A nice change from your average Newnan restaurant. The atmosphere is more upscale and the intimate. Not a large menu selection but there was something that each of us enjoyed.

Never got our side salads. Told than in them early on, and he brought one out when we were close to being done with the meal and brought mine out after I was done with all my meal. Very expensive meal to not get your food.

My boyfriend did not get what he ordered so he was disappointed. The lobster bisque however was so good I ordered a serving to take home. Parking is tricky if you go during the day. Also there was no live band as advertised.

The staff was very accommodating but the food was average at best. My wife was served her salad with no dressing and the lamb I ordered was very tough and the sauce was more like gravy than a demi texture.

Service was great but the menu was different then what was posted and we went there specifically for the exotic menu that was listed on the website, so that was a big disappointment. If the menu changes that drastically it should be updated online otherwise it is very misleading.
