Renowned chef, author and restaurateur Scott Conant introduces an Italian-inspired steakhouse, Cellaio, nestled in the picturesque Catskill Mountains. A play on the Italian term for a butcher’s pantry, Cellaio offers Conant’s take on the traditional steakhouse, complementing aged steaks with the antipasti, market salads and house made pastas that have become synonymous with his cooking. A relaxed bar and lounge greets guests upon arrival and leads to a spacious dining room featuring roomy crescent-shaped booths, communal seating and an interactive decanting station. For private events, a pair of intimate dining rooms reveal incomparable views of the surrounding mountains. Whether it’s to celebrate a big win or for a weeknight dinner with friends, Cellaio Steak is a destination dining experience for upstate New York built on generous hospitality.

Salmon to salty and spicy.
Baked potato under cooked.

Diver scallops were great, fingerling potatoes outstanding.

This meal saved an otherwise lousy two nights at Resorts World hotel. The hotel is terrible. Lousy service, check in a nightmare, rooms not cleaned until after 5. Hotel Manager, Mr Acevedo told us he would comp the two nights and reneged so don’t stay there. Do go to this restaurant, the staff was wonderful, the food was excellent and as the manager of the restaurant said, you will forget the hotel during this wonderful experience.

Excellent experience from start to finish. Food and service was outstanding. The only room for improvement was the wait time when we first arrived...which wasn't really that bad maybe 10 or 15 minutes to be seated. Not untypical for a nice restaurant. I look forward to dining there again.

PS...The shrimp cocktail was a huge portion and the cocktail sauce was very good!

Tyler was a terrific waiter. He took the time to make suggestions for food choices and wine pairings, and he had a great sense of humor.
The food was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend Cellaio!

Sorry I was disappointed with choices and food quality. Our waiter was quite nice though. Service slow. I really enjoy Scot Conant on Food Network so I was surprised by overall food choice and quality. I had Branzino which was full of bones and the oysters were sandy.

Food was great, service was good and the atmosphere inside is very nice. My only critique was a few friends ordered whiskey on the rocks and they ended up being $4 more expensive than what they were listed at in the menu. We found out this was due to the "rocks". $4 for ice. That's some craziness of you ask me. But great experience besides that.

The service, from being seated to paying our check was perfect. Our waiter, Tyler and the servers provided top nock service from beginning to end. We will shortly be back.

Thanks Bob

Waiter was slow. Sat with empty wine glasses for at least 20 minutes. Two people ordered the same thing , one came with a sauce and the other didn’t. Asked why and was told oh I guess the chef forgot. The waiter never brought it out. Asked for salt and pepper, took 10 minutes to get it. We had a table of 5 and spent over $500.00. We tipped the waiter nicely, even though he could have done a much better job.

Steak was fair at best.
My wife’s bronzino wasn’t bronzino. Looked like flounder.

Beyond disappointed!
Everything was over salted; the steak, the vegetables the salad.
The Steak, NY Strip, was unrecognizable as a NY Strip and it was terribly fatty and inedible.

Ultimately we left without eating .

Shrimp cocktail was wonderful and the meatballs were really delicious. The filet was so tender, moist and cooked perfectly. It simply melted in my mouth. It was a fantastic dinner to say the very least.
Service and staff were all excellent. I had a wonderful dinner and a wonderful time. Will return as soon
as I am able to.

Steaks are great. Would love for filet in bone to come back. However I had the fried chicken this week. Did not like it. Breadcrumbs were very dry and I couldn’t tell what parts of the chicken i was given. They had a sauce with it on the side but it tasted terrible. I will stick to steak.

If you don't have Casino comp dollars to spend, Cellaio is pricey. Don't get me wrong the quality of the food and portion sizes are 4 stars. Service is spot on too. However, the place is dark overall and in some places really too dark.

Everything we ordered was delicious. The drinks were very tasty as well. For our main, we ordered the Tagliatelle and the Seared Diver Scallops. Both were cooked to perfection. My only complaint would be the Parmesan frico that topped the Caesar were not crisp like I expected. They tasted like they were refrigerated and a bit stale.

Our server Robert was excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu. He was attentive without being overbearing. We would definitely eat there again.

Steak had to be sent back twice to get it right. Not the worst thing in the world, but the waiter could not care less about the situation. Poor experience for a normally good place.

It was our 6th time dining at Cellaio--always a good experience. This trip, we both had the pasta dishes. Each was satisfying and the portions were generous. The loaded baked potato is almost a meal by itself! The wines by the glass were tasty and affordable. We requested Tyler as our server. He is friendly, knowledgeable and always makes us feel welcomed. We will definitely be returning to Cellaio, as well as recommending it to our friends and relatives.

Rosemary was my server for this meal. She was excellent overall. Simply, a wonderful hostess. My filet steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. Cocktail shrimp were fantastic, as always. Decided to try the meatballs as well and was very glad that I did. Excellent, excellent and excellent. My overall experiences at Cellaio for about the past 4 or so times there have been great. It is probably my favorite restaurant as of this writing. I've always had a wonderful time while dining there.

Cellaio's was a great experience. The food was delicious from beginning to end. Our waiter, Matt, was excellent. He gave us many suggestions from the menu from appetizers to dessert. He explained everything in detail, was very kind, energetic, and fun. All of us had the filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. We ended up having different gelato flavors for dessert and the cappuccino was delicious.
Cellaio's atmosphere was relaxing, no rushing to order, or eating your meal. Nice ambience. I booked with open table, and my reservations were confirmed. I would definitely go back to Cellaio Steak again.
A truly wonderful experience.

As a business traveler, I have been all over the country to some of the best steak houses out there!! Don't get me wrong, this is a Yes and No Answer. The food was A-, Good and portion sizes above average. Most steak houses serve their steaks on hot plates which allows the steak to continue to cook but keeps the food hotter longer, just a suggestion. Amber was a very attentive server. I waited tables in the catskills and I thought she did fine. This casino is nothing special and I feel bad that this restaurant may not survive because the casino may not. The location is not close enough to Middletown, Newburgh or Monroe and I feel there are better restaurants in our area for the price that we would choose. If you are staying at the Casino, hands down this is your best choice!! No doubt. But I think this restaurant will need the local communities and patrons to support it to make it viable!! If you are in Sullivan County, make it a stop, if elsewhere I don't think it would justify the trip!! Thanks Ambet and the staff!!

My wife and I ordered the asparagus soup and her favorite beet salad; the huge and loaded baked potatoe; scallops entree. Since the classic spaghetti and meatballs were not offered as an entree, I ordered the meatball appetizer with the side of spaghetti for the first time. Not only was everything cooked to perfection but those meatballs and spaghetti were absolutely delicious!!! Compliments to the Chef!!! If I may suggest, PLEASE offer this classic combo as an entree! Our Servers, Salina and Peter, provided great serve despite the full house/busy evening. Looking forward to our return!

The food was amazing. I’ve only been here twice but both times the steak was cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious! The prices are reasonable for a high end restaurant. My mom had the lobster pasta and said that was awesome as well. The portion was large and lots of lobster!

All was wonderful. Great servers and food. My only critique is that both times I went (both Friday and sat night) the main entrees arrived at the table before we were done with our appetizers. It’s such a delicious and costly meal and it made us feel rushed.
