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!

I was very disappointed in my experience at 1833. We ordered the Korean BBQ steak and the chorizo clam chowder in the bread bowl. The steak was OK but certainly not worth anywhere near the amount we paid. The restaurant should consider removing altogether the chowder, which tasted like eating cheddar cheese soup and nothing like clam chowder, from the menu. We also ordered the Hawaiian bread, which was the only thing we actually liked.
When we were seated, we were greeted shortly thereafter by our waiter Al (or possibly Ed), and that was one of the only times he stopped by our table. This was possibly some of the least attentive service I've ever experienced. I had no water for most of my meal (which was my only drink), and no one stopped by to refill it. We were finished with our food for about 20 without our server stopping by. We just decided to total up by hand how much we owed and laid out cash on the table as we left. No one said anything to us on the way out.
My husband and I are from out of town and were really interested in learning more about the history of the building/restaurant. But, unfortunately, we saw our server on so few occasions that we didn't even get a chance to get this information.
Overall, we were disappointed with our experience and wouldn't come back.

Great food all around at 1833. Esp. loved the appetizers and my squid ink pasta with octopus. Great dish. overall a good dinner, loved the gorgeous surroundings.
Our main issue was with our server, who knew absolutely NOTHING about the wines on the menu, and with the sommelier off that day, there should have been someone else to help us with wine. Plus service started out painfully slow and uneven, especially given that the place wasn't too busy when we sat down.
Also, I must say that this restaurant's wine list is really strange. There are certainly good wines, and it is a very large list but with many, if not most, choices over $100 and many much, much more than that. Are you kidding me? This place does not have the kind of food menu that one would expect with wines at these price points. I am quite sure that whoever put together the wine list was not the same person who conceived of the the menu or the overall style of the place. I would bet that they NEVER sell at least 75% of the wines listed. They really need to re-think the wine list and come up with more economical options. This is NOT a Michael Mina or Thomas Keller sort of restaurant yet whoever put this wine list together sure seems to think it is.

We arrived a little early, so we sat at the bar and were served by Bijan. Then, we had a great table in the main dining room, where our server was Lily. There were several new items on the menu. For our first course, we shared an order of the Hawaiian bread. For our second course, my friend had the kale salad, and I had the arancini. For our third course, we shared an order of the chicken rillettes. For our entrees, my friend had the smoked salmon, and I had the Korean-style ribeye. Yum!

We loved the atmosphere and the service was great. The food was good but it was a bit of a strange menu. Every dish had at least 1-2 ingredients in the description that we had no idea what it was. Im quite sure that most people would be in the same situation. The waiter told us they had a new chef who had been there just a month. I'm wondering if it is a completely new menu from the prior chef.

We must have gone on a bad night. The service was TERRIBLE. there was a 12 minute gap between the serving of the first entree and the last. They did comp the last entree. I will give it one more chance with low expectations.

When we walked in the hostess was very friendly and gave us a background story on the restaurant while walking us to our table. Our server Jake was awesome! Very attentive and knowledgeable. He made great food and drink recommendations and was a pleasure. He suggested I try the negroni with banana in it, delicious! Would definitely come back here and it's a really cool place for a drink downstairs too

Need to rethink the chef food was under cooked or over cooked. We returned on dish they took off the bill. They would would not let us return the others, telling us the black eyed peas were supposed to be hard. Don't go unless you just want to drink

We had great service and the food and beverages were excellent. The servings were small for my mate. He's a tall guy with a big appetite. (Offer larger serving sizes for a bit more?) The music was loud for my taste. It would be nice to have one area of the restaurant that is quieter for conversation. All in all, it was a fine experience. We like Iris our waitress.

I was not happy that the hostess called to confirm the reservation earlier in the day and promised we were being seated in the governors room but arrived and was told it was not open during the week. I was not informed until I asked why we were being seated downstairs up against a wall. We were celebrating our anniversary and it wasn't where I would like to be seated. The hostess talked to me like a child when I asked why someone would call to confirm a reservation and promise something that wasn't and couldn't be delivered.

Sadly this restaurant had a recent chef change. We ate here over 2 months ago and it was excellent. Menu was larger, varied, fair portions, absolutely excellent service (celebrating bday - sparklers on dessert), great drink menu. Came back to celebrate another bday and ordered similar items as last time. This time started with rude hostess. No line but we were dismissed and not greeted in friendly manner. Service was over 2 hours with half empty restaurant (late evening reservation). Food never delivered to table of 3 all at once. One person always had to wait over 5 minutes for their dish (occurred during all 3 courses). Portions super small (flat bread has shrunk in size and crust has changed, flat iron steak had only 3 small chunks for $30, $18.33 for hamburger that was nothing special-super small, cookie jar dessert had very few cookies and all the good varieties eliminated!!!). Super dark restaurant so need phone flashlight to read. Most disappointing is drink menu no longer has some of the famous drinks available! Super disappointed and will not return.

Overall we had a pleasant experience, but the lighting at our table was so dim that neither could read the menu without assistance, nor see the delicious food that was served. I also felt that the menu size had reduced selections. As I've dined here before, I expected a little more for the special occasion that we were celebrating.

We had a fantastic dinner with a sommelier-recommended wine in a historic old home. Our server, Ryan, gave us a special ghost tour and we delighted in the outdoor patio. Only negatives were some-what small portions and very loud room.

We had a great table in the main dining room, and we shared an order of the Hawaiian bread. For our next course, my friend had a salad with bacon in it, and I had the chicken liver mousse with crostini topped with red onion spread. Then, we each had the Tri-Tip entree with collard greens and squash. Yum! Bartenders Bijan and Josh made great cocktails. Bravo!

We arrived a little early for our reservation. Instead of being seated right away we decided to have a drink outside by the fire pits. It was a great way to start the evening. Our server was Lily. She was friendly and very welcoming. She made us feel at home. She offered great suggestions for our meal and always came to our table with a smile. They have great wine list but I was unfamiliar with most of the wineries. They have a sommelier who was very knowledgeable and gave a great recommendation. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Food and service were excellent. However ...
Food and service were excellent. However, the experience was ruined by the blaring music. We were seated at what the waitress said was the "quietest" table in the restaurant, but the decible level was so crushing we could not have a conversation. Unless and until the loud "music" is turned off or way down, this is definitely not a place to dine.

Loved 1833. Very well put together in every way.
Great food, fantastic ambience, loved the wait staff uniforms! The whole experience was wonderful. We loved all the different dining room options throughout the place.
Only one (very) minor thing is that they didn't mention on the menu that one of the items we ordered contained cheese. Bit of a problem for a dairy allergy. I felt that they could have gone into more details with explaining some of their items a little better. The wine pours seemed a little on the moderate side also. However, we had a blast and will definitely be back it was fantastic!
