The Cellar is a fun Sunday late afternoon place ro wind down the weekend. I also go for happy hour during tbe week. They offer a good assortment of cheese and you can create a tray of your favorites. It's a nice relaxed atmosphere. Great happy hour menu.

Went to The Cellar in San Clemente to meet friends for wine and dinner. Enjoyed a nice evening with a variety of reasonably priced wines-by-the-glass. The cheese plate was tasty (if somewhat restrained in volume), and the other appetizers that we tried were all good. At 5pm, pretty easy to get a table...it got very crowded after that and, if you are looking for an intimate and quiet evening...probably not your place on a Friday night. Fun environment, though, with live music that was very good. You will enjoy it!

Great service and helpful waiters who know their wine.
Reasonable prices
We did not eat there by but the food looked and smell great. Tables, wine bar, cheeze bar and comfy chairs and couches were in the restaurant.
Highly recommended

I had the fried chicken on brioche and it was honestly the most delicious and decadent chicken burger EVER.

The wine selection is awesome and the service friendly with an attitude.

My fiancé ordered the burger on a gluten-free bun, which was served on a wheat bun so had to be returned. That took forever. When his burger came back and the meat wasn't cooked and that took forever as well.

The place was super busy and mistakes happen, so no biggie.

I love that they allow dogs o the little patio, I wish they did this in Canada!
