The waitress was fine but the entrée came a little late. My brick checken was very dry and hard to chew. My wife order of the shrimp and scallops was very lite. Two little shrimp and scallops mostly corn rossoto. I really try to like the place but hard to get over the poor food.

Everything was close to perfect from the moment we walked it, with the exception I found it a little chilly, but that was just me. When the food was delivered, I happened to be indisposed. The server asked if I wanted it sent back to be reheated. I never had this service before from anyplace.

It was quite chilly that night on Long Island, so the restaurant was not that crowded.

We haven't been to City Cellar in a long time. We returned last night for an exceptional LI Restaurant Week menu. The entire meal was excellent and the service spectacular.

Thanks so much for a lovely date night.

It was okay. Was nice to say I have been there once, sure. Would I go again? No. The atmosphere was spot on for a date night. The food, mediocre. Value per dollar is simply not there. The staff was pretty friendly.

Had a lovely time. Very nice restaurant with great customer service. I felt that the wine was extremely overpriced while some of the menu options were reasonable. Our server was lovely and very knowledgeable. Happy I tried this restaurant but next time I will look very closely at wine prices.

I have been eating at city cellar for years, and although it is just as pleasant, prices are higher sand the value is less.

I use to love this place but unfortunately the last 2 times I came here I was a little disappointed. The table the hostess sat me at had crumbs everywhere including the floor. I could not step without feeling all the crumbs. When they switched me to another area that table wobbled and the silverware had some food stains.

My friend and I decided to just go to the bar instead, and it was much better.
Although the bartender was very talented and somewhat friendly, he had some attitude when my friend inquired about the pour of wine. Actually, the bartender seemed annoyed with any question that could not be answered with yes or no. Perhaps because he was the only one back there and had to do bar and table orders. But overall, he did a great job.

Speaking of table orders, a few waiters were handling the drinks and using their hands to scoop out olives and the like. This is a big no no.

I will consider giving this place another chance because it was very classy and catered well to their patrons in the past. Perhaps with everything going on things are a bit off. I probably will revisit months from now and I hope by then things go back to how they use to be. It is a beautiful place at a convenient location.

After our bread and wine arrived, fruit flies or gnats started flying by our table. By the time we were eating our meal, the bread was covered in no less than 10 fruit flies. I didn’t see any bugs in our food (and I prefer to think there weren’t any inside) but the infestation of flies is concerning. I hope this gets fixed because it’s a beautiful restaurant with delicious food.

Very dissappointed - We always loved coming here for lunch. There uesed to be a lunch special for $19.95 pre pandemic. Now the same lunch is $35.00 - RIDICULUS TO SPEND $80 FOR LUNCH. Food wasn't that good either. WE had a tuna salad and the tuna was funky. Told the waiter and he didnt adjust the check.
They also used to have a lunch club tyhat has been discontinued.
I will be looking for a different lunch place.
