We had a wonderfully romantic anniversary, choosing to sit downstairs. The stained glass window were a beautiful backdrop. Every food item from appetizer to main course to desert literally had our taste buds tickled. Each bite was different and delicious. Our appetizer was a simple shrimp & crab salad with avacados, a surprisingly delicious combination. My unique main course was elk, and you could literally pull it apart with your fork as it was so tender. My spouse said, "I love when you get shrimp and they are so large that you have to cut them into bite size." Our desert included a balsamic chocolate with fruit and a yogurt-like dip. Again, a wonderfully unique combination of tastes. We loved our meal. The server was attentive without being intrusive, and helpful (as my wife has food allergies). We highly recommend the Cellar for a romantic evening.

The atmosphere was cozy and intimate . Service was exceptional...on time and not over the top. Great menu with plenty of varied choices. The wine list was truly worldwide and offered many top-rated choices. The food was delivered on time and was cooked perfectly. All meals were 5 star...rack of lamb, pheasant with rabbit and osso buco were astonishing. Would recommend this restaurant for a very special occasion. Quite pricey however worth every penney!

Our first trip there. The dining room is in a cellar, but you’ll never know it. The windows have bright stained glass, backlit so you can see them. It’s small, maybe 10 tables. The service was impeccable. My date didn’t like the white wine I had, so the waiter had her try a couple of others until she had a delicious glass.

The food was outstanding. We had appetizers, main courses and shared a dessert. We each tried the others food and enjoyed everything. I had pasta my date had the veal.

We both are looking forward to going again.

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.

Below is a little noisier than above if you care about seating arrangements.
Fabulous food & carefully prepared.

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!

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.
