The Cellar Bistro is a laboratory learning site for Columbia College’s Hospitality Management students. Most of our students first experience with being a server is in their first semester in college here in the Bistro. We do appreciate constructive feedback, but please keep in mind maintaining a safe learning environment for our students.  

Spring Semester Services: Wednesday nights from January 25th to April 19th. We will offer 3 seatings per night, take out meals will not be available. The seating times will be 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30, by reservation only.

A large part of our Contemporary International Cuisine class is exploring different cuisines and flavor profiles. Our dinners will each be themed to a specific region (listed below by week). In order for the students to have an emersion in these regions we will be offering Prix Fixe menus. This service style will have a 5-6 course meal each week with a set progression of dishes. Generally most of the courses will be fixed but the entree and one other course will have options. Menu's will typically be available the Wednesday prior.
