Last year for my honey's birthday, I took him to The Cellar in Fullerton for dinner. Sorry it has taken me this long to post about this. His birthday is coming up soon so it reminded me about this place. The Cellar is located in the basement of the Villa del Sol and you have to descend a flight of dimly lit staircases to get there. The interior was designed by the same person who created Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride. The Cellar was also one of Elizabeth Taylor's favorite restaurant. I believe she was proposed to here twice by the same man. Yes, this place is pretty romantic.
I even put on a dress. Pardon my jacked up smile. I took this photo on auto timer.
It was very dimly lit in the restaurant.
I got a photo of the butter dish but not the bread. Good going!
This was my honey's dinner...a take on surf and turf. I got something similar except without the surf...that photo was so blurry I cannot even post it. The meat was kind of dry. I didn't remember liking it very much. I really wanted to like this place too because the interior looks like something out of a story book.
We shared this side of asparagus.
Raspberry Souffle for me...
...and Chocolate Souffle for him. We are big on dessert in these parts. And when I say "these parts"...I mean just anywhere me and him happen to be. Overall, the food was just average...the dessert didn't even wow me and I'm easily wowed. Not good enough for me to go back to. Well, I might go back one of these days to give them another chance...maybe.
