Cellar 6 Ratings and Reviews

We were on vacation in st Augustine and selected this restaurant based on the reviews. The wine list was excellent. We were a bit disappointed in the entrees, they were overcooked and appeared to have been reheated too long in a microwave as the servers used towels to handle the dishes. The food certainly did not match the wine selections. Based on the reviews, perhaps they had an off night in the kitchen.

We went to Cellar 6 on the recommendation of a friend and found it to be a great one! The food was excellent, the service was great and the ambience of the restaurant was very cozy and inviting. They even have menus that light up for those of us that have a little trouble with romantic lighting!! Lol I would highly recommend this restaurant to family and friends and plan on visiting again soon.

The restaurant is located on a quiet walking street near the center of town. We ate outdoors and enjoyed the street activity: horse-drawn carriages, tourists, locals. They split our delicious order of shrimp on grits. Excellent beer choices.

Dined here on one of the coldest night in Florida so far this season. (In the 30s.) As such, you would certainly expect it to be quite a bit warmer inside than it was outdoors. However, it was SO hot! Several guests requested that the heat be turned down and our server actually propped open the front door to the restaurant for a while. Unfortunately, the ladies at the check-in desk would get too cold and close it, lol.
That being said, if the heat had not been a factor I think I would have enjoyed my meal more. Took advantage of the $10 off a bottle of wine deal for ordering two chef specials. I ordered the filet and husband ordered a scallop dish. The server said they were out of something for hubby's meal, so he ended up switching to filet also.
Appetizers were the house salad and a tomato bisque soup. The soup was lovely, but the salad was underwhelming. Fresh ingredients and nice presentation, just nothing special to eat. When the steaks arrived, one was clearly a thicker cut than the other and prepared much closer to our preferred "medium." So we split them and shared. The thicker one was perfect. The other was still good, but overdone. If they hadn't been so busy, we might have asked for a re-fire. Mashed potatoes come with the filet. They are good (they have cheese-asiago, maybe?).
We would have ordered a dessert to share, but it was so hot inside the restaurant, we decided to walk down St. George St. for a bit and grab a pastry with coffee.
All-in-all not a bad dinner. We enjoyed it. The place is loud and has a definite "bar" atmosphere, but that didn't bother us. I think this would be a more of a fun place to grab drinks and appetizers with friends.

I had a wonderful birthday dinner here with my boyfriend. I loved the intimate feel of the restaurant. I also like that they have a small menu, ensuring each item is prepared with excellence. The bruschetta was amazing!! A must order appetizer. My other favorite item was the roasted tomato soup with truffle oil. Definitely a place to check out!

We were here for New Years Eve. It was very busy as usual, we had made 11:00pm reservations in Open Table and were seated with plenty of time to have some drinks, and eat a little something before 12:00. The service was great as always! Definitely met our expectations!

Celebrated New Years Eve here with my family. The food was exceptional! My favorite part was the Baked Raspberry Brie!!! The scallops were really good too. My only complaint was that there was no appropriate food choices for kids.

Tried this restaurant with our friends and everyone was extremely pleased. Most of us got the filets and/or lobster, which were both excellent. They even had a Friday night special that discounted the filets. They came with mashed potatoes, asparagus and an nice salad. All sides were great too!!! We will definitely visit this restaurant again!

The location is in the heart of St. Augustine and parking is at a premium. We loved the ambiance of Cellar 6 and we were given a table with an outstanding street view which was quite pleasant. The service was a bit slow but courteous, but the place was packed. We were disappointed that certain items listed on the menu were not available. My wife ordered a strip steak but after about 20 minutes from the time we ordered, we were informed that it was not available. My wife opted for the shrimp and grits instead. I ordered the scallops. Three scallops, several grilled asparagus spears and mash potatoes arrived. The scallops etc were very tasty and fairly large but the pricing was high for such a dish. My wife's shrimp and grits were good and ample. The drinks and wine are the forte' of this establishment. The next time we visit we will probably stick to the appetizers and drinks for a light meal. There are many dining establishments to choose in St. Augustine. I am not disappointed in Cellar 6 and would return as indicated above.

This was our second visit. The food was very good-- 4 of us had the burgers which were excellent and one had the filet mignon. Everything was delicious. Its a noisy restaurant but had a manageable noise level on this night. Our first visit required my husband and I to sit side by side on the bench seat just to hear each other. Also, the mahi-mahi was very dry that night. Scallops, however, were yummy. I like the vibe there, so I'd go back.

Greg the owner was very friendly and accommodating
He introduced us to the Chef
The food was very good, though the "shrimp and grits" was too spicy for one of the members of our party
The restaurant is very nice inside, like an upscale New York bar
The wine list was extensive and not overpriced
We would certainly recommend a visit to this restaurant located in Aviles St, which we were told is the oldest street in the USA

Atmosphere and food was great. Service was very slow and took forever to get even drinks but it the Christmas holiday so I am hoping that it was just too busy for the number of staff on duty. We will try the restaurant one more time before giving it a negative review. We really hope it's better cause the food was excellent.

Enjoyed our family evening out in St. Augustine at Cellar 6. Outdoor, sidewalk table on a great, people-watching night. Andrew, our server was top-notch and combined with wonderful ambiance and excellent food, the night was memorable.

I don't know, maybe it all happened to us because it's Christmas Eve or something else, but I will think twice before returning to this place.
- Choice of wines. Wines were great, especially the program combining your choice of food with recommendation of wines. Prices vary.
Service. Our waiter was changed twice, they kept forgetting to clean the dishes or to bring the silverware. All in all it took a lot of waiting time.
Attention to details. Outdoor tables inside, burned tablecloth and etc. This place doesn't look like fast pace place, but waiters make it look like it is .
Price. Not good enough for such a high price.
Interior is far from restaurant look. It more of a winery with couple of tables that were put together in a hurry.

Very welcoming, friendly host staff and server but the service in general was a bit lacking. The menu is great and our food was delicious. The location is great and even if you don't get an outside table you still feel like you are outside because of the large window. We were there for our anniversary/Christmas Eve and it was the perfect place to be!

We arrived about half-hour early on Christmas Eve, a Saturday, because we had easily found a nearby parking spot (a rare occurrence during St. Augustine's Nights of Lights), and were promptly seated. Because it was a busy evening, there was only one iPad which my. wife and I were told to share by our server, Taylor. Fortunately, there was also a legal-sized electronic menu with wine list. I chose the Roederer Estate California sparkling wine (at $49 a bargain compared to the Ruth's Chris in Jacksonville!).
While the champagne glasses (not iced) and bottle were delivered promptly, the ice bucket arrived only after two requests, after our entree was set before us. After removing the cage, Taylor was quite nonchalant about covering the cork--only later did we note that the cork never expanded. She poured two full glasses (never allowing for a taste), but never tried to refill our glasses thereafter. This restaurant's inventory of this wine is approaching the time when it will maderize.
After ordering, we received our salads but no bread. Taylor appeared quite busy--so busy that the table next to us walked out without ordering. After our entrees were served (her third opportunity to refill our glasses which was ignored), she only inquired once about our impressions--both my wife and I had mouthfuls of food and could only nod (seemed that only two asparagus were the standard serving of vegetables with the mashed potato on a plate which was quite hot--perhaps not the 500 degrees of Ruth Chris', but we were not warned that they could burn).
When we ordered a cappuccino and Irish coffee with the special churro dessert, the cappuccino arrived at 6:25 PM, when Taylor advised us the coffee machine was being cleaned and it would be a moment before the Irish coffee would be served. At 7 PM, when Taylor (who had passed by our table several times) continued to ignore us, we called the hostess over to cancel the remainder of our order, which Taylor promptly served but we refused
Having a good restaurant can only begin ...
Having a good restaurant can only begin with a pleasant space and good chef & kitchen, but it can go off the rails for some diners when the service is off. And such was our experience at Cellar 6...our personable server was constantly called upon to do other tasks (like tap a new keg for the bartender!) so not only did we wait and wait for our drinks and starters, both our entrees sat long enough after plating that they cooled appreciably...not a good thing for seared scallops. And the final disappointment was waiting 30 minutes (we timed it) for our entrees to be cleared and be offered dessert or anything else. No other server's tables were treated this way. So our advice is to insist on the speed and quality of service you want, or you and your meal will suffer. Sorry, C 6...no stars from us this time.

We ate there for the 2nd time. First was inside and the food was OK; perhaps better than last night. I made reservations and we were seated outside. I thought this was not a good choice at first, however, inside is just loud and not conducive to dining a good meal. This time the food was marginal. However the service was pretty bad. We ordered and my wife ordered a salad. Another server came out with a salad and gave it to her. By the time the other waitress came back to the table my wife had eaten half the salad. The server looked at it and said that was my house salad not her diner portion. If the food had been delivered all together it would not have happened. We were there an hour and half. Not Good.

Tonight makes the 3rd dinner date my wife and I have had at this cozy restaurant. If you are looking for a place that serves delicious food, consistently - look no further. The service is terrific, the food impeccable (the tomato bisque itself is worth the visit), and the drinks were delicious. This visit was just as great as the first, all around, and the food has been consistently delicious with each visit.
Our first two visits I ordered the filet mignon, and my wife ordered the scallops. The steak was melt-in-your-mouth deliciously tender and my wifes scallops were tender and cooked to perfection.
On this third visit, i switched it up and had the new york strip, while my wife ordered the scallops for a third time. I couldn't be more pleased. The Truffle steak fries were great, the roasted asparagus has to be the best asparagus i've had to date, and the steak... cooked to perfection.
My wife was once again, extremely pleased with her choice of scallops, served with mashed potatoes and the roasted asparagus as well.
What my wife truly enjoys, is that with each visit, the sauce/glaze served with both our entrees have been unique on every visit, but equally delicious each time. She also pointed out that, whether by design, or not, each has has complimented the others entree. Fantastic.
Service was great, attentive and very thoughtful. Our first visit, our hostess recommended the perfect wine to go with the scallops!
Tonight, we decided, this is truly our favorite date destination, and plan on making this a monthly occurrence. Keep it up!

The food is great as always. The Monday night crew was a huge let down though....the service was some of the worst we have ever had and the drinks were not exceptional. We were bringing friends from out of town so they could enjoy it and with all the hype we gave it, it was a little embarrassing to be let down buy the service. Just want to say this is usually not the case, maybe just avoid Monday?

I encountered a sitting problem when I arrived and found Jessica at the door to be unwilling to be helpful and bordered on rude. We moved on though and decided not to let our first impression of Cellar 6 spoil our evening. The food was ok as well as the service.
What I really have an issue with is that the owner called me on my cell after we left, which I thought was very admirable as he was concerned we didn't receive appropriate customer service. He bent my ear about how important customer service is to him and insisted upon refunding our money although I did not request that courtesy. He assured us we would see the refund in my husband's account on Monday. It is Thursday and my husband never received any such refund. I believe the owner would have been much better off not calling and promising something he had no intentions of doing - as that is surely the worst customer service possible!
