1833 Ratings and Reviews
our family dined at 1833 on a short trip to Monterey. Restaurant is in a nice location, provide a haunting feeling if you read the hx of the house on their website so its fun. happy hours is worth and the tapas are delicious. we ordered majority of the entre items on the dinner menu for 7 people, food is mediocre, service is slow but servants are very friendly. I will recommend if you first time visiting Monterey for the experience but not for everyday dining.
It's been over a year since my wife and I dined here. They have updated the menu since and it's a delightful change. We had the chicharrones and nachos for appetizers, the chorizo risotto and the pork shoulder for entrees with the sides of mushrooms and Brussel sprouts . All delicious and great tasting flavors that complimented each other. Our server was Dominic and provided excellent service. He prepared my absinthe cocktail Russian style by our table, exquisitely. Great overall dining experience.
We've been to 1833 twice and both times had a great meal. The menu changes constantly and does not fall into what I'd call trendy (right now kale and quiona, although there may have been a touch of both on the menu). It's pretty, comfortable, reasonably quiet and has a great wine selection.
We've always loved 1833 for special occasions and have been impressed with the ambiance, food and service. Unfortunately, since our last visit, the menu has changed. Not too many options, and the items we selected just did not live up to our previous experience at this restaurant. What happened to the great menu with excellent and varied menu items?!?
Start your dining experience on the patio by a fire pit. Enjoy an adult beverage with a starter. Don't be in a hurry to get through dinner. You want to take your time and savor the taste of each dish. The menu is so very unusual, while also offerring the every day. The desserts are exquisite! From the atmosphere, ambiance, and food you will enjoy!
Incredible! As good or better than anything I've had in San Francisco. (Same prices)
Lovely setting in a large windowed 'sun' (?) room in a large house that was built in....1833.
The "Fry" bread is a fried pizza with extra special topping.
The oysters were in a lovely, lovely sauce served on iced pebbles in a cute tin tub.
The "smoked" salmon is actually lightly baked - perhaps in a smoky oven. Wonderfulwonderfulwonderful!
The Butterscotch pudding with fresh nectarines was very nice.
The Boulevardier cocktail was marvelous! The Pedroncelli Sauv. Blanc was great! The double espresso was generous!
I wanted to love this place so bad. I was looking forward to eating here for some time. First, I got a reservation confirmation phone call at 9:30 PM the night before. I thought this was a little late to be calling for confirmations, but I called them back and confirmed our 8:30 reservation. We arrived at 8:25 at the hostess told us that we were in the computer for 8, which was a little baffling since I still have the voicemail from their restaurant confirming my 8:30 reservation and the young woman who took us to our table said she doesn't know what happened because she remembers calling us the night before. So that was a little weird, but it was fine and we were almost immediately given a table. Water was quickly brought to our table, but unfortunately that was about the only thing that arrived in a timely manner. I am definitely one to enjoy a slow meal and appreciate the dining experience, however, 45 minutes to get a bottle of wine is ridiculous. While we were waiting, waiting and waiting for our waiter to bring the wine list, the woman at the table next to us had to cancel part of their meal because it hadn't come out with their entrees 20 minutes before. I thought, hm, too bad for her, but maybe she's being a difficult customer. Nope. So we finally get a bottle of wine...45 minutes in...just water...for 45 minutes. The waiter took our order, two apps and two mains. At 10:05 we got up and left without even seeing our entrees. Our apps took over an hour to make it to our table. Nothing difficult, chicharrones and tartare. What really rubbed us the wrong way was that we noticed all the tables that were seated at least an hour after us, were receiving their apps within minutes of being seated. I don't know if we were being neglected, forgotten, or what but the whole experience was just off putting and we definitely didn't feel taken care of. The place is cute and like I said, I was so excited to eat here, but the fumbled reservations and awful service ruined it.
I've dined here for the past 3 years, a total of 10-12 times. Every time has been delicious, creative meal surrounded by super cool ambiance. It was always packed and reservations were a must. It's also the place I would take any out of town visitors. However tonight I was sadly very disappointed with the experience here. I'm not sure what's changed - perhaps we had a string of bad luck or they didn't have a manager - but it was one negative thing after the next.
Arrived at 7pm for 7:30pm reservations. Sat outside at the fire pits for 35 minutes and *never got our drinks* - one cocktail and 2 glasses of wine.
Sat down at table ~7:35pm and did not get water, drinks or a waitress until 8pm.
They're out of a large portion of wines - their menu says N/A.
At 8pm the waitress informs us they have no more salmon - the only fish on the menu and frankly the best looking entree.
Nearby table had 8 or so people just drinking, no food. They were so incredibly loud it was constantly disruptive and did not add to the already tainted night. The acoustics in the space are already terrible; that was always been my observation - even on a good night.
Ordered some appetizers and they eventually came. Finished the bottle of wine before appetizers were done - not because we were thirsty but simply because it was now 9pm!!
Huge delay before entrees came out and sadly we skipped dessert because we were so tired of being there for almost 3hrs. Couldn't leave quick enough.
PS on a summer Saturday night, the place was dead. Why? What's changed, 1833?
Won't be back until I hear they've improved their act :(
I loved the relaxing music and how all of the waiters and waitresses were very nice. They really recommended their wines. The seasoning on the food was absolutely fantastic. Would come here again, but this seems to be a spot to only come to every once in a while for special dates.
We found this restaurant while traveling through town. Had a nice glass of Zin at the bar before our table was ready (on time). Loved the waiter. Large old house with as history converted in the early 1900s into a neat restaurant. Very comfortable seating indoors and out. Limited menu but excellently prepared and unique dishes. Quite delicious. We will be returning on our next visit.
The food is incredible--my risotto was insanely delicious as was the butterscotch pudding I had for dessert. The ambiance really makes it special--this is the kind of place you want to walk around and explore the different rooms upstairs and downstairs. Make sure to come just before sunset so you can have a drink outside by the fire pits--it'll set the tone for the whole evening. Oh yeah, and the place is haunted!
Incredibly disappointing experience, especially since 1833 has been one of our favorite Monterey restaurants (been there 10+ times over past couple years) through a few changes, always great/interesting. But not this time, what is up with the menu? Not clear what the underlying theme is supposed to be (all over the place). Felt like we were eating 'experiments', two of our dishes - both flatbreads - were genuinely unpleasant (though a salmon entree was very good). May have lost a loyal customer, though thinking we should probably try one more time to see whether last night was an exception (rather than the new rule).
I enjoyed Social Hour at the bar, where my server was Bijan. Then, I had a great table in the main dining room, where my server was Nicolle. For my first course, I had the wood fired nachos with flax seed tortilla chips, pork tinga, Malcom's salsa rosa, and "That's Nacho Cheese!!" For my second course, I had the roasted Brussels sprouts with smoked garlic, crispy pancetta, and maple glaze. For my entree, I had the Oregon albacore tataki with avocado, cucumber, and nori cracker. For dessert, I had the strawberry shortcake. Yum!
The food and drinks were great! I've been to 1833 several times in the last year and a half and there was one notable change, the entree options. The entrees were great with regards to flavor but they looked more like tapas which is fine if that's what 1833 was about. Like I said, I've had dinner there several times in the past and the entrees were always slightly fuller. I don't mean bigger either, a bigger portion is NOT what I was expecting, I mean fuller like a proper entree. I left feeling like something was missing and for what I paid I definitely didn't expect to feel that way. I would definitely go again but if I have the same experience I'm putting 1833 on my list of drinks and appz only and doing dinner somewhere else.
It's a beautiful venue and the drinks are killer!! Great ambiance too.
The staff was very accommodating, vibe was something out of Disney's Haunted Mansion, but gave 3 stars because 3 of the items we wanted to order one appetizer and both our entrees they were out of. I completely understand being out of something, but tell us when we are handed menus, not after ordering and then being told the item has been 86ed.
Great wait staff! Great apps, meal, dessert, and cocktails! We were seated in the Founders Balcony, which made for great people-watching and also a private setting. Our waiter was aware we were celebrating an anniversary and she did a lot to ensure our experience was special. Complimentary dessert wine and a visit from the chef were nice perks. My only criticism is that the rissotto is a little skimpy. It was more of an app and less of an entre. Other than that, we loved the food!
This was the second time we dined at 1833. The first time it was really good. This time was one of the top 5 meals we have ever had. Perfect Sazerac & sapphire martini, crafted focaccia, perfectly-cooked new York strip, corn and chorizo risotto & brownie-pudding for desert. Doesn't get much better!! Water was cool - just enough checking in then left us alone! Perfect!!!
Great ambiance, awesome location, loved the house history and interior design. However, the food was, by far, the best part. The brussell sprouts are the most scrumptious I've tasted. The steak just melts in your mouth. Everything was more than amazing. Can't wait to go back.
