The Cellar Earns Prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award


The Cellar, an Orange County dining institution for nearly four decades, has just received AAA’s prestigious Four Diamond Award for excellence in food, service and ambiance – one of only six OC restaurants to have achieved the distinction. According to AAA’s Patricia Marenco, The Cellar offers an exquisite fine-dining experience set in an elegant and unique environment, orchestrated by a talented Executive Chef David Kesler and carried through by a professional and knowledgeable staff.
“The Cellar’s menu reflects a high degree of creativity and complexity, using imaginative presentations to enhance high quality, market-fresh ingredients,” said Marenco. “The equally proficient service staff demonstrates a strong desire to meet or exceed guest expectations. Sommelier Cameron Tyler, in particular, possesses a wide breadth of knowledge about the extensive wine list.”
Marenco said that the interior, which was crafted by the same team responsible for Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean, is not only unique but highly refined, comfortable and well-coordinated, incorporating quality materials and a variety of upscale design enhancements to give a first-class impression.
“On behalf of the entire team, we are delighted and humbled by this incredible honor,” said Ryan Dudley, the 32-year-old owner of the venerable restaurant. “My staff and I work hard to make sure that every dinner served at The Cellar is a memorable one. We look forward to continuing to offer this level of excellence.”
The Cellar has been an Orange County institution since it opened its doors in 1970. Its Old World charm as realized by the craftsmen who built Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean sets the perfect backdrop to a world class dining experience emphasizing the finest in classical French cuisine. The reinterpretations of classic French recipes and attention to detail have earned the restaurant critical acclaim. The Cellar is located at 305 North Harbor Blvd, Fullerton; (714) 525-5682; visit
