We had reviewed the menu and ratings on trip advisor and decided to make a reservation. We called and did so for 8 PM. Shortly after that we received a call back from the manager informing us that we did not have a reservation. We needed to give a credit card to make one and the charge would be $100... More

Service was really good but the good was just o.k. My husband got the snapper and neither of us were impressed. I had a pasta dish that was good. Overall, not worth the price.

Always looking for great quality restaurants in Daytona Beach (very few so far) and friends told us to try the Cellar. Went Sunday night to give it a try. WOW!!! It is located in an old house (once owned by president Harding) that has been converted to a real romantic restaurant. The owners actually run the day to day operations.... More

Always ask for the cellar downstairs. The wine list is extensive, the food is outstanding and the service is top notch.

I want to start off by saying I expected the nicest restaurant in Daytona Beach based off the reviews I read in advance. It truly was an amazing experience as well as romantic. The conversations were loud, but that didn't bother me a bit. My wife and I arrived 15 minutes prior to our 1830 reservation and were seated immediately... More

My husband took me to this phenomenal restaurant for our 10 year anniversary. Our waiter, Joesph, was amazing to say the least. He knew the menu front and back. No matter how busy he seemed when he was at your table serving you, you weren't rushed at all. He made you feel like you were the only table in the... More

The food was excellent . The wine choices under Lena's guidance were wonderful . However the time frame for the courses was much too long.

The basement of a house is not usually the place I'd go for dinner, but the atmosphere here is like stepping into another country. Very eloquent and polished. The staff look like they know what they are doing and they were polite and effective. I never had beets or arugula, both of which I tried and found that I should... More
