Food was excellent! Service was horrible! We couldn't get refills. Had to ask for things parties with other waitresses were receiving (I.e. Bread, etc).

This was our first time eating at The Cellar. Something happened to our order and our food was very late getting to us. The Manager and waiter were very kind and brought us soup until our food came out. The Manager went over and above to accommodate us. It was just a mishap...it happens. The food was excellent. I would have given a 5 star review except the restaurant was very cold. The owner did bring in some heaters to help. We will go back and I would recommend it highly.

The Cellar is a still-welcome dining experience to Newnan where the options are generally limited to chain restaurants. It caters out of necessity to locals looking for something simple like well-cooked burgers, but also pulls out the stops on sometimes simply prepared but out of the ordinary fish and poultry choices. The same can be said for pricing: nicely customized burgers from around $13 to top line beef or exotic fish as high as $40. It pulls it off in a non-pretentious environment thats good for a night out with the spouse or friends or a special date.

We were very excited about going to The Cellar for Thanksgiving. But our experience was terrible. Even though I made a reservation, it seemed they were not ready and we waited about 20 minutes to be seated. The lighting is way too dim. Our waiter was awful. We had to ask for bread that was supposed to come with the very expensive meal. He never once came and checked on us or offered to bring us more food. We had to flag him down. For the very hefty price of $35 per adult and $15 for children, we were very disappointed. Those prices did not even include a soda or tea. The food was very good. However because of the terrible service and small food portions we will never recommend this restaurant.

We picked the Cellar for Thanksgiving dinner. We arrived 15 minutes early for our 3pm seating. Several more parties showed up after us. We ended up being the last seated 20 minutes after 3. Our waiter seemed rushed and it would take him a long time to get to us. I over heard other waiters explaining to their tables how the meal worked (was family style). He didn’t explain that to us. We ordered wine ($10.50 and $8.50 for a house Cab and Chardonnay respectively was a bit high IMHO) and when he brought that, he took off again without a word. Another gentleman (I presume a kitchen manager) brougham t out our food. The food was ok taste wise but lukewarm at best. We asked for the dinner rolls and cornbread that was included on the menu. The waiter told us that they didn’t make cornbread and he didn’t know why it was on the menu and the rolls were upon request (not stated on menu). He brought us some sliced baguette pieces. We had to wait another 10 or so minutes to catch our waiters attention again to get the check. And then about 10 more for him to run the card and bring it back. He hurriedly told me thank you for coming and sorry about the delay and was on to the next table before he even finished his sentence. I had heard really good things about the Cellar which is why I picked it. Maybe they will be better on a normal night.

Well, I do like the The Cellar!

Pros: We have had Thanksgiving dinner there twice and the food is really, really good. For $35 plus drinks and dessert fees, you are given all you can eat of a dazzling array of mostly traditional Thanksgiving dishes. But everything is just taken up a notch. I am not a fan of sugary yam dishes, but the version The Cellar serves? Guys, I will shovel that stuff down all day long! Every single dish is like that just...better. They have some kind of home cooking magic going on back there in the kitchen.
The desserts are ridiculously good, so go ahead and pay extra, they are worth it. Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding, Ya'll. The cocktails are well crafted and they even have a few good choices if it is hot tea you are craving.
The service. These folks, with good humor, moved our entire operation out back into the sunny (and quieter) courtyard and turned on the heaters on to offset the chill of a November day. Extra points for never acting put out in the slightest, we were a pain.

Cons: OK, The Bays? Not a good place to take the fam for a nice holiday feel. It's open, the lighting is a bit, I dunno, grim and not being in the sun, it was chilly. Also, it's right there next to the bar, with flat screens going and really loud, NOT seasonal music blaring. No tablecloths and cold, hard, metal chairs. I mean, come on guys, it felt like we walked into a beach bar in January. My in-laws are not young and most of the fam was dressed nicely. We were looking for a more genteel experience. With pretty music. Which is why we asked to be moved to the back courtyard.

Next time we do this, and the food was good enough that we will, we will make our reservation early enough to be in the main dining area and maybe request not-bar music. ;-)

This was my first time to the Cellar. The Downtown Newnan food scene is up and coming. I was particularly impressed with the food and farm to table ingredients. The atmosphere as sophisticated and trendy. The menu is at a great price point. I will definitely be back.

Went there for the first time on our 14th Wedding Anniversary. Great atmosphere, excellent service, liked the decor and ambiance. A little pricey for 2 people, but worth the splurge every once in a while. Would like to go back and enjoy some live music on the open deck one night.

This is a very upscale and charming restaurant. The food is pricey but excellent. There are healthy options including a couple of fish dishes and a grassfed filet. The atmosphere is fun and relaxing (old brick building and old garage next to it). Inside relaxing, and outside energetic seating. I am never disappointed. A reservation is sometimes necessary.

We go to the Cellar often, as it is one of the only upscale dining options in Newnan. The location and outdoor area are much better than the original, and they do a good job with the menu selections for both food and beverage. For some reason this weekend they seemed off. The service was friendly and knowledgeable, but the food prep took a very long time. It seemed they were shorthanded. Maybe being busy outside because the weather was nice, caused the inside to suffer.
My wife got the lamb two ways. The Lamb pops were basically a lamb chop cut in half and overdone. The risotto with braised lamb was great. I had a filet Pittsburgh Medium rare. It was a nice quality and portion, but not exactly Pittsburgh and not exactly medium rare. I had a portion of diver scallops on the side that were so salty they were barely edible. The corn pudding and creamed spinach were excellent.
For our anniversary they gave us a wonderful chocolate lava cake with ice cream.
I really want the Cellar to become a destination, and not just because it is the best upscale option in town, but because it is consistently great. It can be, and at times it does reach a very good level, but needs more care to the details.

Your front door hostess was very rude Sat. Sep. 30th 6:15 reservations. I was walked to a two top table in the corner next to the wall and was told I could only sit here because booths were reserved for 4. Well every booth there had two! I really wanted to try the food so I didn't just leave. I would have expected that as a walk in but I did make reservations. I will not be back, food was just ok.

Service was slow. Food was undercooked. Craft beer from the tap was 2/3 filled (due to too much foam). Womens restroom had overflowing garbage can, no toilet paper, big puddle of water from a leak that stayed there all night-had to walk thru the puddle to get to the bathroom. They over served guests, one of which was a belligerent guy who sat at our table and carried on a single run on sentence, one sided conversation to which I had to forcefully ask him to leave. He probably would have come back and tried to start a fight if his friends hadn't pulled him away from us.

Waitress was slow to refill drinks and it took a long time to track her down to pay the tab so that we could leave-felt we had to cut the night short because of the belligerent drunk who kept coming over to our table. He tried the same act with several other tables around the patio, too.

This was a rare occasion date night for us away from our kids and the night was cut short because of the overall experience at the restaurant.

Friendly welcome with a wonderful host. Waitress slow with cocktails, didn't arrive until we had almost finished our appetizer. (Place not busy) The cocktails were TERRIBLE!! Ordered manhattans, an easy to make cocktail, but was watered down , no flavor even with up charge for bourbon. Requested another one, just as bad and not sure they even remade it at all! Added a second straw and ice, but still watered down and no flavor.
Salad delivered before appetizer done, not good.
Food was very good!!! Too bad bar lousy and service mediocre for cost of meals and an upscale spot.

We were promptly seated at our reservation time. From there, it took us 2 hr 20 min to get drinks, salad, entree and dessert. Glacially slow. It took 50 minutes for entrees to come out from when we ordered them. While having already waited 25 minutes for dessert to arrive (an unimpressive apple crisp), a staff member asked if we would like our water glasses refilled and I reply "you might as well because we're probably going to be here a while longer." Staff member asked what I meant and told her that we had already been here 2 hours. She stated that she'd have the manager come over to speak with us; this never happened. Our server did comp us the dessert, which was nice of him.

Portions were small and not appropriate for an adult portion. The crab-artichoke salmon fish portion was adequate, but the SEVEN haricot verts (small green beans for those keeping score at home) and the FOUR bites of risotto were insufficient. I was more hungry when I left than when I arrived and that is not hyperbole. I would have filled up on bread had they served any.

My wife's filet was over cooked (not even a hint of pink when ordered medium well), but we were reluctant to send it back due to how long it took to arrive. Will give you that both meals overall was very hot and tasted good.

We are in no hurry to come back to this establishment and don't foresee a return visit. If we going to spend an entire evening (left house at 5:35 and returned at 10 PM) for dinner out, we will just head to Atlanta.

If all you're looking for is steak, try Longhorn; burgers? try Meat & Greet. The problem at The Cellar is in the more formal part of the restaurant the service is lacking... badly lacking, and the food is nothing special. They let empty dishes sit, never suggested dessert... never made us feel particularly welcome. Oddly, the table next to us was given a white table cloth while the rest of us went without. We'd heard good things, but were terribly disappointed.

The food was good but nothing special. I expected more of an experience for the prices. Wait staff was nice but not overly attentive which you would expect from a higher priced restaurant. Attention to detail isn't there when compared to other higher end restaurants I've been to in Atlanta. Maybe I'm just being too critical but for these prices up in ATL you can have a much better experience. Then again, if you don't want to make the drive, I guess this would suffice for Newnan. Longhorn can give you jus as good an experience for less price.

Probably the best upscale place to dine on the Southside of Atlanta. Great outdoor dining area with live music many nights and a spacious bar area . Food was excellent, good wine choices, and friendly service. Doing a great job in the downtown Newnan area. The entire area was as vibrant as I have ever seen it with a good variety of dining options. The Cellar is the most upscale of the bunch, but you can go very casual there as well.
