First time diner for belated Christmas holiday with family on the Island ..... the restaurant was not crowded as it was early on a Sunday .... food was exceptional ..... everyone really enjoyed their dishes .... service from Gerard was terrific and he was very responsive to special requests from gluten free family member. The only surprise that presented a bit of a challenge was a flight of stairs to the "cellar" for my 85 yer old mother-in-law. I should have checked to see if this would be an issue but we are glad we went and just hoisted the MIL up and down the stairs ... a small lift would be a God send
Enjoyed Violette's Cellar again Food and service are always excellent. Would recommend going there.
The food is absolutely delicious and service is outstanding. The food has amazing flavor and staff is super helpful and knowledgeable about wine and pairings to further enhance the experience. Even on busy nights the staff goes out of their way to make every guest feel like they’re the only ones there. This restaurant is second to none.
Went for brunch - everything was delicious and the staff was very attentive. Would definitely recommend and return!
We always have a positive experience, and the service and meals are always on point.
Went for the brunch and it was out of this world… Highly recommended..
A nice evening out. The place has a great vibe, excellent food and drinks
From beginning to end we had a wonderful time. Cocktails (smoky old fashioned and a cucumber lime drink that I can’t recall the name)and appetizers were outstanding(pear salad and grilled octopus), as well as main courses(cauliflower steak and short rib). I am allergic to gluten and they were extremely accommodating which is always plus for me to feel comfortable dining out. The coconut rice pudding with lychee and quality espresso made for a perfect ending. The ambiance is so cozy and beautiful and our waiter Gerard along with all of the support staff made the experience outstanding. We can’t wait to go back!
It was great
Violettes cellar is one of my go to spots but I’m so disappointed in this experience. I’ve never been rushed so much at a restaurant. This is no fault to our waiter. We ordered apps which arrived within minuets. BUT within 5 minuets of them coming out someone from the kitchen came out and put our entrees on the table too (keep in mind we’re a party of 2 so the table was super overcrowded) The appetizers were still full plates and we had our entrees there too just getting cold while we were trying to enjoy our appetizers. 7 dishes on a table for 2…. The food was good but the experience was poor.
Visiting from MD for the weekend for our anniversary and booked on Open Table. Reviews speak for itself. Food was off the chain, and Santiago was our server- super friendly, professional and was all around excellent. Even the rest of the staff who bussed our tables were awesome. Definitely will be back. The only minor issue that happened was I was charged for the bill twice on my credit card. I think they were having issues with the machine. But I called the next morning and the manager was super accommodating and said I’d be credited for the duplicate bill.
Two words: Just go!
Thank you for making our night special!
Excellent as always. I’ll be back again.
Absolutely amazing! Great food, excellent service! Awesome place!
We went for the steak special and it was absolutely delicious. The service was great also.

Tried for first time. Drinks unique and delicious , food perfectly prepared with great taste factor. Will go again. Was there early on a Friday evening , so not totally sure on what the sound level , and service would be at the height of the evening. Enjoyed the food immensely.
First time there. The food was good, drinks were tasty and enough parking.
I had been dying to try this restaurant after stumbling across it when looking for brunch ideas. I set a reservation to celebrate our 7 year anniversary and was pleasantly surprised when we walked in.
Chic atmosphere, comfortable seating, AMAZING food! The staff was very attentive and super friendly. We loved everything about this restaurant and will be back for sure! I'll be back to enjoy brunch with my gfs next time.

The atmosphere was wonderful. The dinner menu was very enjoyable. It was second time back in 4 years. The food was even better this time.
Great food and staff amazing as always!
Something for everyone on this menu. The service, atmosphere and variety are amazing. Portions are large and sharing is a good idea if you want to try a few different dishes, including small portions. The chef is personable and charming and is very hands on! You need to dine at Violette's Cellar....often!
Food amazing, service exceptional took my aunt there for her 72nd birthday and she enjoyed every morsal of this meal. Have nothing negative to say about the service down to the drinks we exceptional I will be back. 😍
The overall vibe was amazing and the actual venue was so cool. I loved the skirt steak it was so flavorful and yummy!! Would definitely recommend.
So good. Love the food and atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
Great food and service. The waiter and manager were very attentive to us.
My husband and I shared the Chateaubriand and it was delicious- the beef was almost melt in ur mouth! And our server, June, was exceptional!!! Will go back if on Staten Island again!!
