Wine Cellar Ratings and Reviews

Service and food excellant. Only problem, my husband ,strictly meat and potatoes man, had looked at menu and decided on a special pork chop, it had been taken off menu. Thankfully the special was a ribeye, he said was delicious. We had a side order of the gnocci to share, wonderful!!
Nice dinner excellent service
Small restaurant with great service and food. The grouper was superb. Key lime pie, excellent. Fantastic service. I was by myself and really enjoyed my meal. Do watch out though, they add 18% gratuity and I failed to see this and discovered I double tipped after I'd left. I thought this was I unusual for a party if one. Otherwise excellent.
Great Anniversary Spot
My wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary and left with great memories. It was some of the best food that we have ever eaten and have not had such a great meal for five or six years. Also the ambiance there was fantastic and very romantic. We will definitely be coming back for another round and would recommend to anyone looking for great food for a special event and make fantastic memories.
Just absolutely beautiful restaurant and romantic
absolutely beautiful restaurant very sweet and romantic.
seems like every time we go there we have Wayne as our waiter. A very friendly and personable gentleman. I think she said he has been there since 1983 maybe ! Great guy and great service !
I enjoyed my dining experience at Wine Cellar the food was delectable. We were celebrating a birthday. it is a very romantic restaurant. I will return with my husband to enjoy. The waiter could have use a little more personality. But the overall experience was AWESOME! We will return!!!
Great Board Dinner at Wine Cellar
My group was in Jacksonville, at the Hyatt Riverfront, for a board meeting. We were able to walk across the Main St. Bridge to this restaurant in about 15 minutes. It's location is sort of weird (right next to a gas station), but you forget that as soon as you get inside. The ambiance is great, with the restaurant subdivided into smaller, grottoe-like sections, some for smaller tables, some for larger.
The service was amazing, the waiter was very helpful in his recommendations, and all of the food was excellent. One of our board members is strictly vegan, and though there weren't obvious options on the menu, the chef was able to custom craft something that our member said was delicious.
Pricing was about average for a restaurant of this caliber, maybe slightly less than you'd pay at a chain gourmet restaurant like Ruth's Chris.
I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

We ordered off the main menu, two different entrées. My lamb chops were perfectly cooked and served, my guest's steak was cooked to her specifications was both tender and tasty. The wine served went well with both entrées.
A special lunch for a very special lady.
My dear friend, who turned 93 years young on on February 2nd, had some very special memories of the Wine Cellar from years ago. I thought it would be extra special to take her there for lunch and made the reservation. I requested a little extra special attention for her as she is quite frail, but with a remarkable mind, memory and sense of humor. Wow, did we ever get it. From the minute we arrived the service was outstanding. The waiter opened the car door, assisted her to our table and was the absolute epitome of service and grace. The food was outstanding and was topped off with a Bailey's Irish cream cheese slice with a candle (said he didn't sing) on the house. I sincerely thank you, it was a truly wonderful experience.
An Often Overlooked Gem
The Wine Cellar has been a part of the Jacksonville restaurant scene for decades, and as such it is often overlooked when discussing the finest food in North Florida. That is a shame, because it has an excellent menu, with great variety and expert preparation. It is hard to recommend any one item, as you literally can't go wrong. Add to that a professional yet friendly service staff, and you have the perfect spot for a special occasion. If you are more interested in the food that the gimmicks, this restaurant is for you.
Anniversary Dinner 1/30/16
Outstanding service! All three courses of the Prix Fix Menu were wonderful with exception of NY Strip steak was a bit tough. Regardless, the meal was exceptional and our dining experience was very enjoyable. Romantic, quiet setting perfect for anniversary dinners or other special occasions. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Great Food and Great service
The server we had named Gary was perfect for this type of restaurant. The food was presented in a relaxing atmosphere with a casual timeframe. The timing between each course was adequate so we could enjoy our wine selection. will definitely bring friends here to enjoy a great meal with some exceptional wines to choose from.
