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.

"Went here for the first time to celebrate an anniversary. They took such great care of us. Genuinely friendly, warm, and fun. The food really knocked some of the best steak houses out of the park. Wow! Great experience and can't wait to go back!"

"We have been going to the Cellar for approximately 30 years. It is still a lovely place and the atomosphere & decor are very special but it just isn't the same. We dined early (6:30) with the restaurant rather empty & quiet until a party of 4 was seated near us. They proceeded to enlighten the entire place with their private conversation which was interesting but not exactly bright if they wanted to keep the lid on something.
As for the food; the signature lobster bisque seemed to be more tomato & less lobster with no aroma or lobster taste. The Chef is eager to impress with his sauces but for me they were a bit too ambitious. The apricot sauce for the bone marrow over powered the marrow & all you got was apricot (which was very good but maybe for toast.) The sauce for the salmon was very pretty but I honestly couldn't really taste it because it appeared to be only for decoration on the plate. The sauce for the steak in Piedmontese style was plentiful but again, without a distinct signature, according to my companion. And they were out of "creme brulee" for dessert ( at that early hour.) I think that for the prices of the entrees the restaurant could supply sparking water at no charge for diners ( at least the first bottle or two).
If you have never been to the Cellar it is worth seeing & I do understand the their cocktails are first rate. They have wine dinners & other events that may provide the best opportunity for you to enjoy the ambiance without the expense of an independent meal.
Perhaps I just miss the old days...

"If you want to be able to have and hear a conversation with your table mates, plus enjoy great food, great wine choices, and discreet, friendly, attentive, no-rush service, this is the place to go. The quiet ambiance is a rare find these days. The filet mignon is consistently perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. I find myself ordering it almost every time I go. The complimentary valet service is a plus, also."

(Good) 3 / 5
"We didn't want to try restaurants on New Years Eve so we went the night before. Also, the restaurant website advertises half price on bottles of wine on Wednesdays. There were no 6:00 reservations so I chose 5:30. Even though we were there at 5:20 we didn't get seated until 5:45. People who came in after us were seated before us. Not horrible but worth mentioning since the service through the rest of the dinner turned out to be a problem.
Our waiter was very helpful in choosing a bottle of wine and we ordered the Caesar salad and snails to start. The snails are just fabulous and would highly recommend it. The chefs choice beef with potatoes and mushrooms was also quite delicious and cooked to perfection. The problem comes in when we were asked if we'd like to order the soufflés for dessert since cooking times were lengthy, but this was before the entree was served. I suppose since we didn't choose the soufflé but chose another dessert, they forgot all about us. I don't know if the waiter was overworked since we had a very nice and private booth, we couldn't see where he was or what he was doing but we had to wait an inordinate amount of time after we finished our meal until he came back (and he came back without the dessert we had ordered). So we cancelled the dessert order. ( I wasn't about to wait any longer)
When the bill finally came, I had to take it to the hostess to get corrected since they forgot to take half off the bottle of wine. I like a nice leisurely formal dinner but this was more than 2 and half hours from the time we arrived to the time we left.
I'm hoping that this was an anamoly because the food was worth trying this restaurant one more time.

"It's a rare occasion to give 5-Stars at a particular restaurant, and I'm proud to say that The Cellar deserves the 5-Star Rating! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and he loved it as much as I did! The environment was very unique and romantic. The servers are so friendly and personable. And the food was DELICIOUS. I wouldn't mind coming back here again. Thank you so much for the memorable experience!"

"Very nice date restaurant. The food is good, but not exceptional. They prices seem about average for what it is. I may go again but I doubt I'll be a regular."

"It was Christmas Eve and they had a "special" menu, which was a huge disappointment. Last year, they had the regular menu with a holiday list of drinks. That experience was worth the price. We have been there a few times now on holidays when they have had "special" menus. They have all been a disappointment. The regular menu is fabulous, however. Conclusion - don't go on a holiday, but do go on a regular evening."

"Very unique dining experience. Has classical music (not the elevator kind). The food was excellent. I asked for my steak to be well done and that's exactly how I got it with out it being burnt at all. Our waitress was excellent. The restaurant was not very loud. Food was a little expensive but well worth it for what you get. Very happy with my experience."

"The Cellar has been one of my favorite restaurants for several years. However, I was disappointed with my recent Thanksgiving dinner. My prime rib was cold, and the potatoes were very average. My girlfriend's turkey dinner wasn't warm either, and very average. Our server was friendly, but a little slow. I 'm hoping that this great restaurant just had one bad day."

"Service was mediocre and food was decent. Had an early reservation and went with another couple and my wife and I ordered a steak for two. Thirty minutes later we were informed they ran out. Our Cesar Salad was anything but. They claimed it was their take. Food was still decent but very disappointed . Don't think I will go back."
