    Ambiance was great. Staff was great. Wine was…… not great. Closer to awful. We didn’t eat the food but from what we saw coming out of the kitchen, I would come back to try it. Just next time we will be ordering beer.

    Food and service was excellent. There were four of us and we all had something different- steak, salmon, chicken, and pasta. The olive and oil dip was great although I prefer a crustier bread.

    Staff were enthusiastic and friendly, so please don't take this review as negative towards the front line crew in any way. It's about decisions made at the back of the house. The wine was mediocre and the cheese board was barely one step up from Cracker Barrel and saltines. Given the options in the neighborhood, Cellar on Penn needs to step up their game.

    Failed to hold my reservation even though I paid in advance for a wine tasting and called in advance. Acted like it was my fault. Food and wine were really bad to the point that none of us finished the meal.

    Cellar on Penn is a lovely, fun place to go for happy hour and / or dinner in The Strip District. We were lucky enough to make plans for trivia night (which also happens to be the best-executed trivia I've ever attended), and had an absolute blast. The food was delicious, with significant portion sizes, and the servers were SO kind and attentive. We will be back!

    The wine is not completely undrinkable. The food was pretty good, especially the pasta and marinara sauce. The chicken Parmesan was very good . The charcuterie board was disappointing. The service was polite but of course they were understaffed—and there were only four other tables. Won’t be going back.

    We had my elderly mother with us who ISNT very good with stairs anymore. The Host and Hostess were very accommodating and sat us outside. We had great weather and thoroughly enjoyed it. We listened to other reviews and many of us ordered the chicken parm. It lived up to its reviews!!! We had a very nicely done, very fresh and delicious charcuterie board with several different cheeses and meats. The wine was very good. We had the Pinot Noir and Pinot Greggio. My only recommendation that I hope this restaurant receives is a better beer selection. I am more of a beer drinker and wished they had more of a selection of different beers. They still get 5 out of 5 because everything and everyone was GREAT!!! This was for our daughters graduation from Duquesne and we were grateful we selected the Cellar on Penn.

    We had reservations for Mother's Day for 2pm. We did not get our appetizers til almost 4 pm. The waitress did not make much effort to keep us abreast of what was taking so long. Maybe a time here and there. At the end..when my husband spoke to the manager..all he said was he'll let her know? No sorry that happened or we can take off an appetizer or something. Oh one more thing..the manager came to our table and took our menus from us to give to another table he had just seated..we had not even ordered our dinner at this point. I understand places are short staffed..but the place wasn't even that busy. I just wanted to enjoy the day with my kids, husband and grandson and we weren't treated well to say the least.

    Selected Cellar on Penn for our March Black Ladies Lunch. The pandemic has made it difficult to find restaurants that accommodate a group of our size - average 8-10. You know with a group of that size it’s hard to find a place that everyone is happy with it. The atmosphere, service and food was great. Most of us got the chicken Parmesan at the recommendation of our waiter and it was delicious, so tender and the breading was perfect. The wine flights were nice. The Sangria was a little weak.
