The Cellar - Fullerton CA

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.

"You must try the escargot, bone marrow, and the lobster bisque. Perfect space and ambience, very cozy. And the staff were very attentive."

"The Cellar is just that. As you descend the stairs to this romantic experience, you're taken back in time. The dimly lit Cellar has phenomenal food and an amazing wine list. Robert, the house Sommelier, is like talking to an old friend as helps you select the perfect bottle of wine. Very memorable experience! Highly recommended!"

"Service was very slow even though the restaurant was not very busy in a weeknight.
Excellent cocktail list with edgy recipes of classics
The rest of the experience is completely forgettable. I understand it takes time to cook good things but nothing in the plate was that special.
Go there on a date for the 'cellar' ambiance but not for the food.

"Decent food selection. Excelent cocktails and appetizers.
Service not so good. Waiter was very polite but he mixed up the dishes among attendees half the time. And it took a very long time to bring everything out, even though the restaurant was half empty. We even had to ask for water twice.

"The Portions were tiny. We do fine dining every week and this place was a disappointment. My gf who weighs just 98 pounds even left hungry . After spending almost 200.00 We both left hungry and irritated and got pizza down the street. The best part of the night was the cigar bar across the street and the pizza after."

"The Cellar is fantastic. My fiancée and I went to the Cellar for our 1 year anniversary and it was absolutely the perfect place. We were accompanied by my best friend and his wife. The libations were phenomenal. I feel like any choice I made from their list would have been fantastic. Each of us had a different drink and loved each one. The food, though, was superb. I have never had a cut of beef that was so juicy, with so much flavor and so tender as that night. My fiancée had the filet mignon and was astounded. If that wasn't enough, the setting was perfect. I liked the dim lighting and I really appreciated the noise level. It was quiet enough to really have an intimate dinner with just the people I care most about. This place blew my already high expectations out of the water."

"We were 30 minutes early, but that was not a problem even though they were very busy. Table was wonderful, service was top notch and the food was to die for. I'm hoping to become regulars, but since it is a bit of a truck to get there from Redondo Beach, we will have to make it our special occasion destination."

"I have gone to The Cellar about once a year for the last six years and I guess it is a victim of the times. It used to be fine dining with professional servers. However, on this most recent visit, I noticed the menu had been greatly reduced in choices and the quality was not as exceptional in the past. My salmon was cooked on one side and almost raw on the other, also served skin side up which I had never seen before. Not to mention it came with different sides than what the waiter explained. A small point, but these are details that would not happen in the past.
Again, it is a sign of the times, but, to me, “fine dining” does not mean to show up in torn jeans and a hoodie. I would say about a third of the people in my dining area had on jeans (many with “fashion” tears).
I still give it four stars as it is still a great place but it's been trending in the wrong direction.

"We were celebrating two birthdays and a retirement so this was a very special occasion. The chef and servers did not disappoint. From the cocktails to dessert (including comped creame brûlée for the celebrants) everything was perfect."

"Unfortunately slow service. Over 3 hr. meal just too much. Management did not seem to be respectful of business and seemed very understaffed. Did offer discounted bill which showed that they may acknowledge the problem."

"The Cellar is always so good however it seems the prices went up quite a bit. Most dinners in the high 30s and into the 40s. Drinks are also delicious but pricey. Great romantic place for special occasions."
