When you want a special place to eat in the Daytona Beach area, The Cellar is the place to go. The food is delicious and beautifully presented, the service is impeccable, and the wine list is extensive.

We were seated promptly, in a nice area promptly upon our arrival. We had a terrific server, Callie, who anticipated our every need. Dinner options were quite varied and our choices, were excellent. Wine prior to dinner and dessert afterwards totally rounded out our meal. We plan to return soon.

The room is small and intimate and very tastefully decorated, The service was something we are not used to in our beachside communities. The wait staff is very attentive without being overbearing or snooty.
The food was awesome. We started with Portobello mushroom cap roasted with imported gorgonzola cheese and served with a Balsamic glaze and baby greens. My main course was Osso Buco D’Agnelo con Risotto alle Verdure and my wife had the Scaloppine of veal loin sautéed with artichokes, pine nuts, sun dried tomatoes and white wine. We each had their Tiramisu. This was the best Italian dinner we have ever had, bar none.

Great menu, overall on the pricier end of restaurants but excellent meals. Well prepared and artistically presented. A place where you can have a normal conversation. Wine prices are steep so you may want to just order a glass.

If there were 6 stars for the wonderful chef, his wife & food, it would be 6.
This gem of a restaurant is fantastic.
Below is a little noisier than above if you care about seating arrangements.
Fabulous food & carefully prepared.
Drove from Ft. Lauderdale just to enjoy.

Great atmosphere and food. Not your typical Italian menu. Very extensive wine list/selection. Service was top notch. Pastas are all homemade and delicious.

Celebrated my wife's birthday. The food was amazing: we had polenta with porcinis, home-made pasta with crab, veal chop - so juicy and tasty with scallopini potatoes; lamb chunk was the best we ever had - tender& moist, our daughter enjoyed gnocchi! Good desserts. The service was very mediocre, and we would say disappointing, we would expand more personal approach for a small fine dining establishment. We still would highly recommend this place as the food was superb - thank you, chef!

The food was excellent, service was pleasant from the moment we walked in to the time we left. The expense of the meal was high, however was completely in keeping with the quality of food served. We were very pleased.

If you want a superb dining experience, The Cellar is definitely a must. The food is excellent, the service is excellent. In my opinion, this is the BEST restaurant in the area. The chef is so innovative. My husband and I have been there several times and neither of us has had anything negative we can say about it. Do yourself a favor and try it. I guarantee you will feel the same.

The Cellar is our go to restaurant for special occasions. Since my niece was in town, my husband and I wanted to take her there. She enjoyed it immensely. We all had the fresh pasta dishes which were light and flavorful. All three of us has appetizers and desserts .. These were amazing as well... The Cellar does not disappoint !

We were visiting the area and booked The Cellar for my husband's birthday. My daughter found it on Open Table and recommended it to us. We did want a reservation for New Year's Eve but they were booked already. Now we know why! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! It was everything the reviews said it would be. We were so happy to find a fine dining restaurant on our Florida trip.

Our favorite restaurant for special occasions, and we're never disappointed. From the lovely cozy atmosphere, outstanding service and food, I could not find anything that wasn't perfect for us. It seems that each time we go (probably twice a year), it is fresh and memorable.

What a magnificent dining experience. Our waiter, Daneal delivered the chefs specials with great knowledge and a warm presentation. The food was excellent and the service was second to none. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant and I hope it continues its tradition of homemade fine food and service.

We found The Cellar to be a delightful dining choice. We enjoyed the cozy porch dining room with a view of the gorgeous patio area. The filet & pasta were exceptional, as were our wine choices. Our server was attentive & knowledgeable about the historic home. We appreciated the owners care of the resident cats. We have already recommended The Cellar to family & friends.
