Cellar Bar (Al Fresco)
A special birthday.
We were eating outside when at 8.30 gas works commenced on the corner of Bourke and Exhibition streets. The noise and the diesel fumes from the compressor of the jackhammer became unbearable. It was a beautiful mild night that was ruined as we were forced to go beside. We were told the works didn’t usually commence until midnight. We are all being encouraged to go back into the cbd and book into restaurants. We did that only to be greeted by the works. Extremely disappointed.
One of our favourites and we are never disappointed with the quality of the food!
We had not dines at Cellar Bar for a number of years.
Very pleasantly surprised at the food quality...served very cheerfully and professionally.
Very Melbourne and very Italian - Food is predictably good and the service attentive and helpful. The Cellar Bar is an institution for many people and some where you want to go back to even if you have been away for a while -
This is an icon of Melbourne dining. The prices are on the high side and service was teetering on this Tuesday lunchtime. The stand out dish was the pici and wild boar - a good rendition.
They let us made a reservation but the restaurant was closed.
Too slow. Only ordered a main dish each and it took an hour to arrive.
Delicious food. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Defínetely will be back soon
The music was a bit loud for my mature ears. Otherwise excellent as always.
Amazing! Food great, wine great and atmosphere great
Great service, beautiful food , lovely weather for outside dining and live music from Vika and Linda!
Great food, good service and love the gnocchi!
Love this place for amazing Italian food and people watching
Very tasty and varied menu of Italian dishes. All freshly prepared. Accompanied by a good wine list and a selection of cocktails
food kinda sucked for an expensive place. especially the pasta
Fantastic dinner, the alfresco setup is lovely and the service was excellent. We enjoyed delicious food and the Cellar Bar was as good as we remembered. Perfect way to spend a special occasion.
With a 2hr booking our entrees didn’t come out for about an hour as they were pretty busy. So by the time we got our mains we didn’t have much time, however there was no one after our booking so from 7pm we stayed there til close! So it was good experience overall
Excellent and happy service with really beautiful food.
A lovely experience was had enjoying coffee, ice cream and biscotti on a sunny Wednesday afternoon, while I was being interviewed for a prospective job role.
They loved the venue so let's hope I get the job!
Food was outstanding, good to be going back to restaurants .
Food is great. Service is wonderful. Love the outdoor dining area. But the wine is twice the price of other restaurants, making the experience far more expensive than it ought to be. Yes, I could have had less to drink but it is a wine bar, after all. Paid almost exactly the same for two people (two courses each, plus olives to share, sparkling water & six glasses of wine total) as I paid the next day for three people at a fancy-pants winery - (two courses each, plus chips to share, sparkling water and five glasses of wine total). I've loved Florentino's Cellar Bar for years. I won't stop going but I think next time it will be dinner & one drink for me. Well over 200 bucks for a casual dinner for 2 is just way too much.
Had dinner with a friend at Cellar Bar Al Fresco on Friday night. We ordered a glass of wine which took nearly 20 mins to arrive. Bread and olive oil were provided but for 2 people, we were served 1.5 slices of bread. We looked around and noticed other 2-seater tables were being offered a more generous amount. Appetiser arrived at a reasonable time (before the wine!) Then mains took 50 minutes (no exaggeration). There were several waiters who looked at our empty table, made eye contact with us, then walked away to have a chat with other staff (probably about where our food is) but noone told us or even apologised about our food delay. It was only when we alerted them we had 10 mins to go with our booking (90mins max booking) that they said the food is on its way. The waiter we had wasn’t very pleasant and it was difficult to get any waiters’ attention as they seemed to be moving all over the place quickly. Food itself was extremely disappointing and overpriced for what they were. We had the seafood spaghetti and pumpkin tortellini. Both were very bland. The tortellini was so thick and there wasn’t enough pumpkin filling to go with the pasta. Appetiser was enjoyable- crochette di baccala but that and the ambience are about the only good things I have to say about this place. Will not be returning and will never recommend.
oh my goodness, what on earth is going on with the service here!?? jeeeeepers, it was a total mess from the moment I arrived. There are not enough characters available in this response box to go into each point, but everything that could go wrong in terms of service did... the creme de la creme was when 2 of our diners had gone inside to do the classic secret 'sneaky pay' and the staff accepted the payment of the bill twice... then it took about 20minutes to rectify this and refund one of my friends. There was one nicer, older lady waiter with an english accent that tried her best, but it was truly bad. The system is a broken!
I loved sitting Al fresco at the Cellar bar. It’s consistent beautiful food and service. The food is simple Italian recipes, it’s tasty and homely and the team are always hospitable. Sit outside on a nice day enjoy the bustle of Bourke Street
Dined al fresco, such a great atmosphere and friendly staff.
the Baccala balls and pumpkin tortellini are to die for!!
have been dining here for years, so happy to see you back in business!
Pasta wasn’t good at all, no flavour and needed more salt. Service wasn’t good too.
