Food is delicious. Good pricing for happy hour. Live music on Wednesday nights. Tried the apletinni it was yummy a bit strong. For the price of $8 during happy hour it was a bargain.

We are staying in the hotel and wanted a bite. The Cellar has a great atmosphere. Live music was very good and the singer engaged the crowd. He had a nice voice and good range of music including some nice originals. My husband ordered the...More

You will like the speakeasy feel of this cellar restaurant if you don't mind louder music due to excellent acoustics (the ceiling is barrel vaulted). This bar is on one side, with TV's for sports, then the other side has benches and booths with great...More

Once you arrive, you'll never want to leave. The dim lighting, romantic wall hangings, abundance of fine cocktails, AND talented live entertainers make for the perfect romantic night out. And if you find yourself famished, you can still order Ponte's indulgent garden-to-table eats from here....More

We have had several meals at Ponte. However we never made it to the Cellar Lounge before. The music on Sunday night was a bit loud but it was enjoyable. And the food....it was out of this world. We will be back.

Great for casual dining with a good selection to choose both food and drink. Service is exceptional. Only downer is the loudness of the live music that starts at 6 PM. Unable to carry on a conversation without shouting.

We did not eat, only cocktails before dinner. Since it is located within the Ponte Vineyard Inn and their restaurant had some really excellent gluten free options, I would imagine they would offer these as well. Don't know... More
