We decided to try Cellar on the Greene for a weeknight couples get together. Because the restaurant is small, and they do not take reservations, we got there early. (5:30pm). Our first surprise was that their featured wines are 1/2 price (for a bottle) on Thursday nights. Each couple ordered a bottle and what wasn't finished was corked and bagged for us to take home.
The restaurant offers a $22 three course dinner. For the price, we expected "small plates" for each course but that was not the case. The portions were generous resulting in several take home boxes. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. I had the scallops, which I liked quite a bit. However, once I tasted my husband's Mahi, I regretted not ordering that.I am not a huge Mahi fan, but I will order it next time. The desserts were outstanding. We did a lot of sharing but could not come to any agreement of which was best. (Cheesecake, chocolate souffle,cheese plate, grilled pound cake or bread pudding.)
The service was very prompt, efficient and friendly. Our server (and I regret not getting her name) was extremely knowledgeable about the food and the wine and was able to accurately guide us in ordering.
Even though it started filling up as it got close to 7:00pm, we did not feel rushed to leave, but did so out of courtesy.
Cellar on the Greene is now on the top of our list of favorite Columbia restaurants.
