Le Cellier actually means "the cellar" which is appropriate since the stone restaurant seems to sit underground with no windows and many wine bottles are used in the decor. The lighting is poor- again, no natural light. Once we were seated we had a chance to look around the restaurant. I quickly realized why we had to wait 20 minutes. This place was pretty small! I would guess there were about 40 tables and they were pretty close together. At our table for 2, we could literally reach over and touch the table next to us. It was a good thing we didn't want to have an intimate or private conversation! The lighting and the close proximity of the tables were my only complaints about the place.
For dinner we both ordered the "Le Cellier Mushroom Filet Mignon." The menu says it's a 8 oz. Canadian AAA Beef Tenderloin with wild mushroom risotto, white truffle butter sauce and Micro Chervil. It sat on a bed of mashed potatoes. This was the most tender, well cooked steak I'd ever had. It literally melted in my mouth. I don't even like mushrooms, but this was outstanding. I don't think I would ever order anything else off this menu! Hubby also ordered a side of the baked macaroni and cheese. Since I don't eat cheese, I didn't try it, but he said it was good- just not as good as the steak!
Overall this was an outstanding choice for our anniversary lunch. The food was outstanding and the service was great. The waiter took the time to introduce herself to us and share a bit about the city and Province she calls home. We had great food, great conversation and learned a bit about Canada in the process. Each time we mention going back to Walt Disney World, hubby always brings up Le Cellier!
