1833 Ratings and Reviews

I decided to come here after hearing such great reviews from my foodie friends. I brought my wife and 5 year old. I looked at the menu and everything looked amazing. I explained to our server that I was stuck on a few options, and if she could make any suggestions. She not only picked out a great wine to go with our meal, she had the chef come out to our table and explain the dishes him self! Chef had brought out some house made chorizo for my son to try, and made custom pizza for him. Chef Mikey delivered incredible hospitality and an exceptional food experience. Everything that we ordered was prepared impeccably, and we enjoyed every last bite. From the crispy octopus(my favorite) to the pumpkin cake and cappuccino; we were blown away. I can't thank all of the 1833 staff enough for such an amazing food experience. You can expect us to be back soon!

Great food, drinks, and service. Very neat place, loved the character. VERY disappointed in our seating. They sat us in row type seating. Long bench seating with tables one after the other. Horrible! Too close to people next to you and the people on both sides were so loud we couldn't hardly hear each other! Not my idea of seating when you go to a nice restaurant. Felt like the Cheesecake Factory bar seating.

The food and the service were excellent, but the portions were way too little, I loved my Agnolotti but only 4 pieces, C'mon, and that they charge $8.00 for bread as a starter, aside from those 2 things the whole experience was wonderful.

As always, 1833 was perfection. They've set the bar to a new level in Monterey that is completely unsurpassable by any other restaurant on the peninsula. The special New Year's menu was absolutely amazing. The wait staff was very attentive (again, as always). Overall, our experience is always beyond our expectations and gets better with each visit.

Food and atmosphere were great. We got a drink at the bar prior and that was fantastic and welcoming. However our server for dinner seemed busy and overworked. He was absent most of the night. We went there for the haunted house aspect, however the server was not there to answer any questions. Albeit it was a Friday night.

Food was wonderful as was service. However, music was blasting in all the separate dining rooms as well as the bar. We asked multiple times for them to lower it, but they said they tried. It never got lower. This detracted from our Neal and our excellent food.

The ambience, drinks and music were great so we had a good night in our little booth. The food was more comforting than the fine dining we expected, but also not too expensive. By comforting I mean often the dishes were too sweet (glazed Brussels sprouts), too cheesy (pumpkin risotto) or too salty (clam chowder), rather than letting more subtle natural flavours shine through. The salmon ceviche was the best for this reason - even though it was in a spicy sauce, it had a taste of the sea.

We enjoyed an exceptional meal and creative cocktails in a side room with a fireplace, which was perfect for our group of five. The service was spot-on; knowledgeable without being pretentious, timely without hovering. We will definitely be back!

In a historic building built in 1833, so the name sake. Not an extensive menu but each of the dishes is well prepared, seasoned and served hot and in a creative format. A well balanced wine list with prices across the range, corkage is $25. Highly recommended along with reservations. Parking is street parking and that can be problematic, but worth the effort and patience. They are very attentive to the customers needs if there are special requests.

The food was bad - too salty, too much dressing on the salad. And the worst part is that the waiter was rude. He made a pregnant woman feel bad for asking if the cheese was pasteurized and made vegetarians feel bad about asking to remove the meat in the dish. I was appalled by the service and low quality food. Urge others not to dine at 1833.

The food is overpriced!!! I tried a variety of dishes and it seemed like the chef tried too hard. All the food that I tried had a strong taste of a certain ingredient. Like one had too much herbs, another one had too much lemon which made it too sour. It was just not good food for the price. I've had quality food and I can tell you this place is definitely not good at all.

1833 Nailed it!
Great food, excellent service, and considerate attention to our "business" dinner. While I am disappointed the bar is not as adept, nor has as many creative selections as 2-3 years ago, the cocktails we did try were awesome.
The menu was creative and delivery spot on. Way to go 1833.

1833 with new chef is back on my list of have to go there at least once a week....amazingly flavorful food and very accessible to all types of diners. The always knowledgeable and friendly wait staff just complement it all the more. Congrats on the changes you have scored a winner here

Surprised my fiancee with a weekend getaway to Monterey and specifically planned our dinner for 1833. The food was delicious, our compliments to the Chef. Great service, ambiance, and we love the historic nature and interior design of the space. One of my favorite restaurants in Northern California.

Wonderful historic building and top notch waiters. Unfortunately, the menu is limited and mostly with narrow appeal. It seems an effort is being made to be "different" but in so doing will be a turn off to many diners.

This was the most memorable dining experience I have ever had. The food was amazing but the service was impeccable! From hostesss to server to Somonier! 5 star!! And the Chef sent us 3 complimentary hour's dourves to celebrate our honeymoon. We especially liked waiting in the library for our table!!

Thanksgiving dinner was executed well, although not as good as the previous year. Sides were spot-on; turkey was lacking in taste and portion size. Pumpkin tarts were served chilled and the flavor could not be fully appreciated. Obviously not baked same-day so somewhat bland and crust was soggy. Pecan pie slices fared better.

The ambiance was excellent, except for the background music. For a special occasion classics would have been ideal for the heritage restaurant, not rock!!
The food was outstanding as well as the service, they were a bit stinging with the wine especially since we paid $70.
I highly recommend it, next time I'll order one glass of wine.

1833 was a gem - travelling for Thanksgiving is sometimes hard - you miss the traditions. Our Thanksgiving meal was a pleasure - a mixture of tradition, creative gastronomy and just delicious food served family style. Our wait staff was informative, friendly and attentive - Bernie's pairing of wine were on point and fun - and the surroundings were beautiful. Above all the food - it was wonderful! Thank you 1833 for making our holiday special.

The food was wonderful - the service was great. There's a very cozy library with a fireplace to enjoy one of their fabulous cocktails. The music didn't really suit the atmosphere- tried a little too hard to be hip. I would eat here again a heartbeat!

Our party of 5 were on vacation and read about this restaurant. We made our reservation and it did not disappoint. From the drinks to the desserts, everything was spectacular. I love the cocunut drink I had, the salmon tostadas, the pork, the pasta, and on and on. The only thing is that it is not kid friendly, which is always a challenge when you have kids, but other than that everything was absolutely delicious. The history of the place and its decor was also very charming and appealing.

The venue is exceptional. The food is ok. The chicken appetizer tasted very strange and not good at all. The Brussel sprouts were probably the best I've had. The salmon was very salty. When they ask for still or sparkling water, be advised sparkling will cost you $8. And no complementary birthday dessert.

Strange place. It might okay if you just wanted to hang outside and drink and eat appetizers on a nice night. We were there to have a nice anniversary dinner. To start I think the hostess had a little too much to drink herself. Had to find her first and then we couldn't understand her. The dinning room was basically empty, 2-3 tables busy yet service was still slow. I had a $48 my strip steak which should have been no more than $20-$25. Wasn't very flavorful and the side dish of potatoes was not good. It may have been an off night but I was not impressed.

We had a great table in the main dining room, and our server was Al, who brought us perfect cocktails prepared by bartenders Josh and Bijan. We even had the pleasure of meeting Chef Mikey. There were many new items on the menu. For our first course, my friend had the Kale Salad, and I had the Steak Tartare. For our second course, we shared an order of Chilled Oysters and an order of Creamed Greens. For our entree course, my friend had the 1833 Burger, and I had the Rosemary Focaccia. Yum!
