This restaurant is slighty off the beaten path, but very worth finding. They make their own wine (lots of varietals), and prepare tasty innovative food. Prices are reasonable. If your a wine snob, the wine won't blow you a way, but it's all decent. I'd recommend following the recommended choices.

Friday night, husband out of town, so I took our adult children out for Happy Hour/Dinner and wanted to try Vintners Cellar. We were a bit surprised that on a Friday night at 5:30PM it was not crowded. The Bartender was awesome and we started with a flight of wine tasting. We just mentioned what type of wine we liked...

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Vintner's Cellar and it was perfect in every way. Norm, owner, was a superb host and provided every last detail. The food and wine service was fantastic and everyone felt welcome. We highly recommend Vintner's Cellar for a fun, cozy and memorable event. Thank you!

All the previous reviewers of Vintner's Cellar gave it an "excellent" rating. Sounds fishy to me. OK, the service was friendly and the wine was good. But, the food was far great and even with the happy hour menu we easily spent over $60 for two, including wine. The pizzas were delivered cold and had to be returned; even then... More

For me, walking into a wine bar can be a little bit intimidating, Even after spending the last 15 years touring the wineries and tasting rooms of Paso Robles and Santa Ynez it still gives me a bit of anxiety. I know my wine and the proper protocol, that's not the issue. It just that you never know what sort... More

This little cafe is perfect for a happy hour or casual dinner spot. The gluten free pizza is amazing and covered in veggies(if that's what you like). Their salads are very generous and fresh and their Paninis are great too. Really you can't go wrong here! Their wines are very drinkable and the owner (Norm) is very knowledgable and fun.... More

Vintner's Cellar has recently reopened. The location is off the beaten path on NW 16th. The place has a great vibe with lots of seating for small or large groups or just a couple.

A favorite neighborhood spot, Vintner's Cellar of Oregon is the best wine bar and small winemaker in Portland. Stop by for a small plate, a pizza, and, of course, some wine!
