Le Cellier Steakhouse is a signature restaurant found in the cellar of the chateau in Epcot's Canada Pavilion. As one of the smallest restaurants on property reservations here can be difficult to get, although the switch to a signature restaurant a few years ago has relaxed demand a little. Whilst you may be lucky enough to snag a reservation a few days in advance on occasion, walk-ups are consistently turned away.

Checking InThe weather took a turn for the worst while we were exploring some of the World Showcase pavilions, so we headed into Le Cellier at about 5:00pm to see if we could be seated early for our 5:35pm reservation. Thankfully they were accommodating since the sky opened up just as we got inside.
The waiting area here is very small and had it been peak dining time I imagine it would have been very crowded with waiting guests trying to escape the rain. As it was, another couple arrived just after us to try and check in an hour early for their reservation and were turned away with the recommendation of going to watch the film available in the Canada Pavilion to get out of the rain while they waited. There isn't a bar or lounge to wait at.
We overhead the guests in front of us trying to secure a reservation for later in the evening while we were waiting our turn to check in. They were informed that the restaurant was completely booked and to try Nine Dragons in China or Restaurant Marrakesh in Morocco. As mentioned above, walk-ups here are most often turned away.
