The Cellar Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We don't understand all of the hype. On our trip to Daytona, this was number 4 on our 'what dinner we liked best' out of the five dinners we had in the Daytona area. Out of the 2 Italian restaurants we tried, this was number 2. We don't drink wine so we can't comment on the selection. The bread and oil was standard fare for Italian. The pasta we had was lacking flavor. We found the decor a bit old. Perhaps we went on an 'off' night so we say, give it a try.
My meal was fantastic, my wifes, not so. She said it was bland, she is a food critic. Seemed pricey for pasta , not worth $. Ambiance was fantastic. Great find, but for only special occasions, not regular dining. Too pricey on just about everything. Servers seemed rushed as well, no real patience with customers, maybe because it was an 8:00 resv. And closing at 9:00 on sunday, it shouldnt matter, but it showed. Not good
From beginning to end, the service was remarkable! Starting off with the appointment reservation was scheduled and having the table ready. Waiter told us of the specials and gave us a book of wine selection. Being attentive of our drinks the whole evening and making sure they were never empty. Food came out and both plates looked amazing. Wife had the lamb while I had the filet mignon. Both delicious! Chardonnay (glass) was perfect temperature and remained so the whole evening. Couldn't have asked for a better evening for this newly wed couple!
Had a fantastic meal, and the staff was awesome, especially Richard, our waiter. Ask for him, you won't be sorry. Lina, the hostess and half owner also suggested (at our request) a great bottle of wine that would go well with our veal, and her suggestion was spot on perfect!
Almost everything was superb, especially the service (Cesar and the hostess) and overall ambiance. The carpaccio was excellent and the ravioli also fine. My 'osso bucco' was actually a braised lamb shank, ample and very tasty but not what I had anticipated.
This restaurant was exceptional. My husband and I were so impressed we made a reservation for Valentine's day. The restaurant is in a cellar but there is a very nice dining room where one does not have to traverse stairs which was good for my husband. Service was superb. The waiter was there when one wanted something and he disappeared when we were eating or talking. The wine we had (a Super Tuscan) was really very good. The wine list is very extensive so for wine lovers it is a dream. Can't imagine anyone not liking it.
First time at this Restaurant. My wife and I were celebrating our 15 year Wedding Anniversary and looking for a cozy, local type of restaurant that offered more of a fine dining experience. This place was perfect and we were both very happy with the entire experience. The food was exceptional! The owner recognized from my reservation it was our anniversary. She came to our table and said Happy Anniversary and gave us a free dessert. We cannot wait to go back for another dinner.
Food and service was tasty and good. The owner was nice, greeted us down stairs then seated us quickly. Our server was knowledgeable and great with his descriptions of each plate. We had a couple glasses of wine with 2-apps and 2-dinners. The food was favorable, tasty, done right. The portions were all a little on the smaller, light side. Our total bill was $111 for 2, then add tip. We felt the restaurant did a great job for the area, it's tough to find restaurant's/service in the Daytona beach area.
