I had a disappointing meal at The Cellar during a recent visit...but I chalk that up to straying from the basics they seemed to be known for, and ordering one of their daily specials.
We went here as a party of four. Our sever was very friendly, but she turned out to be not that great of a server. Each of the four of us had our order delivered incorrectly, and we're not really offered the opportunity to correct...our server actually acted annoyed that we kept on brining up items.
I ordered their special of a surf and turf....the dish sounded excellent, and I was looking forward to the meal. The daily special menu clearly stated the meal came with either a soup or salad, but neither was asked for, nor was it delivered. When I asked the server if I could get my soup or salad, she said it would be an additional $2. When I pointed out the menu stating that a soup or salad came with the meal, she continued to state that it was, for an extra $2. (Which the menu definitely did not stage...and for the price of the special, one would assume it was included!).
When my meal arrived, it came with asparagus, although I ordered broccoli. Fortunately, though, my colleague got the broccoli when he ordered the asparagus, so we just switched. The shrimp and potatoes were lukewarm at best when delivered. The steak was a bit warmer, but I did not get a steak knife, and attempted to butcher the meat with a butter knife, while waiting for a proper utensil (which arrived ten minutes later after two requests).
My colleagues said their meals were acceptable...they stuck to some of the more "traditional" items on the menu.
All in all, I was very disappointed in my meal....I think largely due to the sub standard service.
On the,positive side, the "6-pak" shop attached to the restaurant had a simply amazing selection of beer, and was definitely a highlight.
