Description: Cellar Door Steakhouse provides the ultimate dining experience with our juicy cuts of USDA Prime dry aged beef and elegant ambiance. The key effect of the dry aging process is tenderization and concentration of flavor of the meat. Our dinner menu is varied, offering seafood, small plates, and plenty of choices for non-Steak eaters. We also offer a lunch menu of soups, salads, and creative sandwiches. The beautiful decor of the restaurant has been developed by designers to have a polished, upscale feel with subdued lighting that will relax you upon arrival. The illuminated Onyx bar and lounge area was developed to be a fun, elegant space. This has become a very popular spot for the gathering of couples, friends and singles since the inception. The staff and management are extremely personable with the desire to please, which is the restaurants main goal at all times. Just like highest end steakhouses in the City, without all the hassle!

“Nice little place”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

met a friend for dinner and was impressed, will definitely be back. We sat at the bar and the chef came out with some very non-traditional 'happy hour' food. He explained he'd just returned from Milan and was taking a page from the restaurants he'd visited. The fare was nicely presented: arugula salad, meats and cheese, battered zucchini, crudites and...pizza! Was all very tasty.
Have to say the wine pours were a bit conservative, but the pricing was pretty fair, especially for the area. I ordered the salmon and risotto, my friend had the seafood pasta and we each enjoyed our meals. Risotto was a bit 'dense' and could would benefit from a touch of broth or something to keep it from coagulating on its way from the kitchen to table.
I would recommend The Cellar Bistro and my friend and I have already agreed that it is our new meeting place.
Btw, this was a Wednesday night and the dining room had a fair amount of people and about 5-6 people at the welcoming bar; nice, upscale feel due to the decor. Enjoy!

“A great addition to Ridgefield's restaurant scene”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

We're already planning our next visit! The scene inside is one of sophisticated comfort with a beautiful warm bar scene and decor that is overall a cut above the competition but it's the food that sells this place. We were in for a quick light lunch and we got just that: for three of us, an outstanding grilled veggie platter, a simple pizza with tomato, mozzarella, and basil cooked right before our eyes in a lovely pizza oven, and a veggie sandwich with a salad. All great, but we were coveting the Cobb salad, the pasta, the desserts and just about everything else we saw passing by. Speaking of staring at other people's orders: the cosmos were a perfect color and the rumor is the martini menu is quite fine. A delightfully civilized break! Enjoy!

Fabulous meal with exceptional martini's. Service was a little slow, but he was new to the restaurant. Bar atmosphere was relaxed and inviting.

“Tired of the Attitude”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

Cellar Door thinks thet operate in Manhattan when they are in suburbia. They will ask you to come back every time after &PM because you dont have a reservation. I recently went there on a Sunday with at least a dozen empty tables and they were sending people (even with empty outside tables) for reasons unknown.

Word of advice...you operate in a town that is predominately a family town with 2-4 children who don't make reservations. To my knowledge, NO RESTAURANT IN Ridgefield requires such nonsense, Take your business over the border were you can get away with the attitude.

Your Pizzas are marginal at best and at $20 shameful.

“Interesting and moody decor. Like the glass top of the bar”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Like their classic Italian dishes with modern variations.
The pizza is excellent. And then there's the fried dough...
