The Burger Cellar - Yonge & Lawrence

ckg | Oct 15, 2010 11:59 AM

Tried out the Burger Cellar last night. Their first night was Wed. Oct 14, so we were hoping for good things on their 2nd night. We live about 2 blocks away and were hoping it would be a new favourite spot. There were 4 of us (myself, my husband, our toddler and our nanny). We made a reservation in case it was busy. When my husband arrived, he discovered that they had given our table away (our reservation was at 6 and he arrived at 6). Someone had walked in before him and stated that they had a reservation so they gave them our table without asking the name on the reservation. Then my husband told them that we would need a highchair. The hostess looked puzzled and then pointed to the chairs at the bar and said "those are the highest chairs that we have." My husband had to explain that we needed a "baby highchair" for our son. She eventually understood and got a highchair. We ended up with a seat by the window, which was fine.

The food was fine. I wouldn't say that it was the best burger that I had ever had, but it was decent. We ordered poutine and onion rings as our sides. The wine list was not as extensive as I would have thought for a "Grill and Wine Bar". Overall an okay experience (except for the inexperienced staff). I'll try it again in a few weeks when the staff know what they are doing.
