The Wine Cellar
Located in the Back Bay, The Wine Cellar Restaurant offers an alternative 'to the same old dining experience'. The restaurant specializes in European cuisine with over thirty fondues ranging from cheese, oil, broth, court bouillon, and chocolate. It was awarded by the Wine Spectator 2005 to 2011 "Two Glasses" of Excellence for its wine list. The Wine Cellar is proud to offer one of the best wine collections in Boston showcasing food and wine pairings on price and style (vintage depth and verticals). Step into a small but very cozy dining room with hand painted murals of historic New England buildings and landscape with wrought iron accents and hanging lanterns. The Wine Cellar Restaurant has become a destination for wine lovers and food enthusiasts.
I ve been wanting to go here for a while and finally went with family for a birthday.
The reviews I ve read call it cozy ; I call it cramped; we were so close to tables on either side we could not help but hear both conversations (and vice versa).
Looking forward to Raclette; I had the Classic Swiss which was a great disappointment - too little Raclette cheese over a bread (!) base and not really grilled well enough. Also had Classic Cheese fondue which was bitter and too winey.
Wife/I had Pierrade Entrees - combos of meat,seafood etc which you cook on a hot stone - this was really good, but the sauces served were fairly meagre and it was difficult to eat from a very small plate.
Daughter/husband had 2 fondue entrees - very nicely presented and very tasty but difficult to cook in a too shallow fondue pot.
Chocolate fondue was below average and not kept warm enough over a very smaill tea lamp candle.
Then we got the bill - over $300 for four - ouch!!
