Transit: The downtown Wheaton Metra Station is 2 blocks west of The Cellar Bistro.
Description: A wonderful little gem in downtown Wheaton just 2 blocks from the Metra. Serving delicious, homemade dishes using preservative free ingredients and hormone/anti-biotic free beef, pork, bison, chicken and eggs. Fresh fish featured weekly, live music every Monday night, a great wine list and quaint sidewalk dining with alcohol service. We buy from businesses within our community, or from small businesses who are an integral part of their communities and try to have a positive impact on their environment. Opened in 2007, this husband & wife owned restaurant was nominated for Restaurant of the Year in 2010. You will be impressed with the ambiance of the small dining room, the personal, attentive service by the wait staff and the delicious menu options.

“Delicious gourmet lunch menu!”

Great lunch menu with some amazing salad options - had a hard time deciding but ended up choosing the grilled salmon salad. All of our meals were delicious, service was great and love the atmosphere.

This gem in downtown Wheaton is a wonderful restaurant with great food. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great date place. Try the bacon, blue cheese stuffed mushrooms, their the perfect appetizer!

“A Good Neighborhood Pick”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

I started with the brie mushroom soup which came piping hot. My wife had the caprese salad which was generous, including olives, an ingredient we don't often see in that type of salad. Her peppercorn steak was done correctly and was flavorful and she ate every bite. I had the penne pasta with chicken which arrived hot and was nicely seasoned. We split a piece of the chocolate cake for desert. We had to skip the ice cream topping since their ice cream supplier had shut down for the winter(?).
