Excellent menu wonderfully prepared. The service was excellent and the wine menu was extensive. On the pricier side for Daytona area but definitely a nice treat.

Unexpected for Daytona Beach. Most restaurants are marginal at best. This is a hidden jewel, great food, wonderful attentive service. We visit the area twice a year and always have a difficult time finding upscale (not chain) restaurants. We will be back!

My husband and I shared a wonderful, luxurious dinner with one of the best wine lists around. Our server was very attentive without hovering. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious! Our wine was poured by the owner who told us about the Italian winery where the wine was bottled. The restaurant is small with 2 rooms and just... More

Shame on us for not finding this place in the past. The level of service, quality of food and wine offerings were impeccable. Refreshingly lacked the trappings of the oft found chains in the area and went out of their way to make sure we were attended to (without hovering), made some off menu appetizer recommendations for us that killed...

We periodically visit Daytona Beach to see family and make a point to eat at the Cellar each trip. With excellent choices for appetizers, entrees and deserts we do not have any favorite dishes and tend to sample the menu. They have great selection of wines, and beer if that is what you desire. The customer service has been excellent... More

Fortunately able to get reservations 24 hours before New Year's Eve for New Year's Eve dinner . Excellent prix fixe 4-course dinner for $80 per person. Over 10 appetizer choices and about 20 options for an entree. Amazing and wonderful as usual. As good as any other fine dining restaurant anywhere else, especially for the price. Merchant of Venice special... More

I'd like to start my review by saying, "WOW." What a fantastic evening!! Our server Chris was totally perfect. The appetizers and dinners were beyond delicious. Of course being a Steak Tartare lover, I had to start with their Carpaccio di Manzo - oh, to die for!!! My husband loved the Avocado con Gamberi e Granchio as everything was so... More

A perfect blend of atmosphere, impeccable & personable service and the most amazing dishes! It was difficult to decide on what to order, since everything looked delicious! I finally decided on the Gnocchi alla Bolognese, and was NOT disappointed! The Gnocchi were perfectly prepared and the Bolognese sauce was the best I've ever had! A true 5 star dining experience!...

Truly one of the very few impressive eateries in the Daytona area. The fine dining atmosphere is enjoyable if not slightly outdated and the service is very attentive. The pretentiousness is fairly minimal and the cuisine is very well executed. As everyone feels the need to mention, the portions are a little on the light side but such is gourmet... More
