This was my first time to eat here, after 20+ years of hearing people RAVE about it. We came with a group - there was 12 of us total- so perhaps that was part of the problem. What I do know is that the menu is appealing, but the service wasn't able to accommodate our group seamlessly. My husband ordered... More

Love the cellar for ambiance, food and service. My husband and I are regulars at least once a month!! We celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and any day there. Excellent Crafted Coctails and extensive wine list. Try it!

Even though the dress code was stated to be "business casual" there were several tables around us where diners were wearing hoodies and baseball caps. The waitress was pleasant but the service was slow. The Chateaubriand was excellent but the Caesar salad was the worst I have ever had. Overall we were disappointed with our dining experience and don"t plan... More

My wife is a big fan of Disneyland, so the moment she found out there was a bar/restaurant designed by the same team that made Pirates of the Caribbean I knew I would have to take her. Hidden away in an underground location Downtown Fullerton you will find this intimate European style gem. Typically when we go we order their... More

A very easy review: Service 10 out of 10. Food 10 out of 10. Ambience 10 out of 10. Overall experience 10 out of 10. This was my first visit despite having lived in Fullerton for 2 years. After booking on Open Table I received a call from The Cellar confirming and also was asked if a special occasion was... More

I don't know what happened to this place since we were here two years ago. But it's changed. We went with another couple. We raved about this place to them and were so happy to share the experience. The ambiance is still nice, dark and cozy. We ordered 4 glasses of wine, nothing special. Our drinks did not come for... More

If you are looking for someplace different for fine dining, look to the Cellar in downtown Fullerton. Reservations recommended, extensive wine offerings along with cuisine and service fit for royalty. Class act, refined and well trained staff. The sommelier was charming as was his historical and sometimes hysterical stories offered. Be sure to sweep by the E.Taylor/R.Burton table. Finish the... More

We used Open Table to find The Cellar. We were looking for a nice meal with good wine. The Cellar delivered for us. The wine great. They staff helped walk us through options. The special that evening was a filet. It was prepared perfectly. We had mac and cheese along with mushrooms as sides. Both were prepared perfectly.

We visited The Cellar for the first time the other night. It was a great experience. Our Waiter, Jimmy R., was very attentive and knew the menu (both drinks and food) inside and out. We had a couple of drinks (Arctic Rose and Marco Polo) which were excellent. The food was exceptional (Chateaubriand, etc) and was perfectly cooked to order.... More
