We went on a Saturday night during peak tourist season. The food was as expected, the ambiance was perfect for a date, but the service was extremely slow even with it being a busy Saturday night. Overall, I would say it was worth the wait and would still recommend it!

This was our first time dining at The Cellar and we were very impressed. So much so that we wanted to return the next night to try other dishes that interested us. However, being that they are closed on Sundays, it was not possible. Our server Everett was patient and helpful in describing the difference between the half and full portions and his food runner was funny and helpful as well explaining some things about the dishes as they were brought out. The food was beyond delicious! We ordered 5 appetizers- fried artichoke hearts, wagyu tallow french fries, chorizo and jamon, baguette with 2 olive oils and coconut curry squash and apple soup. The soup has a spicy kick to it, so if you don't like spice, just be aware. Our dinner entrees were chicken and waffles, chickpea rogan josh and a gnocchi squash special. My son raved about his chicken and my husband and I enjoyed our entrees very much. I got the half portion of the rogan josh and it was more than enough food, especially with all the appetizers I sampled. Even if I didn't have any appetizers, it would have been a good dinner sized portion. Will definitely return on our next visit to Corning.

Loved the menu selections! They offered a great selection of veggie/vegan options along with seasonal choices and some more casual offerings. I especially love that they offer half portions for practically all of their meals!

Brussel Sprouts and walnuts were a great starter. The main course we had mixed reviews. The chicken and waffles packed lots of flavor but the Salmon Dish unfortunately had not much flavor and felt the price for this dish did not match what we were eating. The dessert we had the doughnuts with jam was okay. The Jam was amazing but the doughnut just seemed bland. Overall good place to eat but a little expensive for the overall experience.

We had made a reservation for 6pm. We arrived a couple minutes early and were seated right away. Service was exceptional. Prompt, polite, professional. We ordered a beef entrée and a seafood one (can't remember the exact dish names) and everything on our plates was delicious and cooked perfectly! It was exactly the high-quality dining experience we were looking for to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday!

A truly wonderful culinary experience. Highly professional staff welcomed us outside the door to confirm our reservation. We were immediately seated at our table and the excellent staff greeted us with quick, amicable service. My husband has a severe garlic allergy and our server quickly summoned chef owner Micheal. He was a gem and quickly told my husband the Waygu steak was a wonderful option he could verify zero garlic cross contamination. Our daughter loved her chicken adobo, and I loved he salmon. Magnificent wine list too.

Best food and chef in Corning. Try the chicken & waffles and dark chocolate lava cake with homemade salted caramel ice cream! Mike, Ellen, and their staff are top notch. We can't praise them enough for their wonderful service and amazing quality of food.

Wonderful ambiance, dim lighting but perfect for a romantic evening minus the slightly elevated noise level given the small space, which all in all, isnt so bad to be honest. Just a personal preference, but if I am to be honest and speak of the establishment as a whole, I would give it an A+

One of my favorite restaurants, we love to come to the area for the museum, the wineries, breweries, biking and paddle boarding. We always try different restaurants in the surrounding area, but always come back to The Cellar as the chef never disappoints. There is something for every palate on the menu and the service and ambiance are superb. Small to large plates, all fairly priced. Highly recommend this to anyone!!

You can't help the ambience because of co-vid but I think it was actually pretty nice to be outdoors. The only problem was we ended up in the sun even though when I made reservations I requested a place in the shade. I don't think that was altogether the fault of restaurant because the sun moved....All in all - I love the Cellar, I think the chef is amazing, the servers are wonderful. I always have a memorable night there.

We were very pleasantly surprised for dinner at The Cellar. This was the first time for us. Our server, Leif, was very helpful in guiding our choices. The food was absolutely delicious and the lava cake to die for! We hope to make the trip to Corning again and would be happy to dine at The Cellar again.

Wow! Delicious meal. We started with poutine (think cheese and gravy fries) delicious!! For entrees we had the Kobe Beef, Salmon and Scallops. Perfection. All plates were cleaned and we went away full. We are never disappointed and always try something new.

Some of the very best meals we’ve had in the region. Kyle’s mixology is outstanding. The man has terrific finesse when creating various cocktails. Brussels have well balanced flavors. Scallops are ALWAYS on point. Great dessert choices and the French press puts it over the top.

This was my first meal at a restaurant since my celiac diagnosis and I was very nervous to say the least! The menu has so many gluten free options and there was no cross contamination with the food that I ate. I even brought charcoal tablets with me, but didn't end up needing them. The food was beyond delicious and I was even able to get a gluten free dessert. I'm so happy that there's now a "safe" restaurant for me to go to! This restaurant is extremely celiac friendly.

The staff are friendly and attentive. We ate at the outside tables set up along the main street that they have closed to cars .
Excellent yellow and red beet salad to start , then shrimp ceviche which was authentic and perfectly done.
my husband enjoyed the scallop special and i had lamb lollipops .
Everything was terrific ..a little pricey but worth the results ..

Overall the Cellar was a good experience. Very happy they have outdoor seating as we are not planning on eating indoors any time soon. Appetizers were really good: popcorn and Brussels sprouts. The special was sea bass....excellent. My husband and sister had the duck carnitas and it was disappointing. Very little flavor to the duck and the purple rice was bland, bland, bland.
Our server Leif was excellent. We will return but won’t order the duck!
