1833 was simply perfect. The food was amazingly different. The menus has options with flavor from around the world and all comes together tastefully. The cocktail and wine menu is amazing. The ambiance itself is a historic mansion in Monterey with an amazingly spooky backstory. If you want a night to remember, this is the perfect place. You'll never forget it.

So good! Creative cocktails, stellar service, very good food. When I first sat down the menu didn't really excite but we took suggestions from our server and he hit it out of the park. Make sure you try the Brussels sprouts!

We have dined at 1833 many times over the past 5 years. We loved the first few years when the food had a southern flair which seemed like a great match for the ambiance. The chef and menu changed a number of times since opening and this past time all of us were disappointed with our dinner. The menu was not balanced. Most every item was smoked or had a smoked element. The cocktails and the service were both very good.

What a change for the worse since my last visit 3 years ago: while I had previously had a fantastic meal, this dining experience left me extremely disappointed. The menu did not offer many options, our appetizer and meal was overly salted and extremely greasy. Very sad in choosing this Restaurant when so many great dining options in the the Monterey area.

We arrived at this restaurant late night to celebrate our engagement. The host was a little strict about seating us exactly at the time of our reservation (which seemed strange) but it was fine.
After this things only went up from here. Our server was incredibly friendly and full of good recommendations. I got a bourbon drink which was good. The Brussels sprouts appetizer is simply outstanding.
The meals are hearty and really great. I suggest any pizza or the Mexican chorizo clam chowder in a bread bowl. It was not too creamy, and in fact a bit spicy and full of chorizo.
The donut holes/apple fritters were perfectly fried and coated with sugar
They also provided a small scoop of ice cream with "Congrats" written in chocolate ice cream. Great attention to detail
The space had room and a nice darker rustic ambiance

Very cool spot, the bar scene was happening. The service was good. The food fell a bit short. The tartar had an overpowering amount of cheese, the artichoke dip had 4 pieces of artichoke, the fried octopus was cut too thin so it was mainly breadding tho the creamed greens were very tasty underneath and nice with the hazelnuts. Beef and pasta was tasty.
Service was warm and friendly through out the entire meal. For dessert we had a tart which was done well even if we weren't a fan of the molasses or marmite flavor. However the ice cream was very icy.
The restaurant is georgous and worth checking out, just wish the food would match our expectations.

First, my friend and I went to the bar, where we were served by the very talented bartender Bijan. Next, we sat for a while outside by the fire pits under the redwood trees. Then, we had a great seat in the main dining room, where our server was the attentive waitress Nicolle. For our first course, we shared an order of nachos. For our second course, my friend had the Kale and Manchego Salad, and I had the Castroville Artichoke Frybread. For our third course, we each had the Goulash entree. Yum! We had a delightful chat with Chef Mikey, who is very nice. Bravo!

Asked twice for a drink refill, never got it. Got conned into a bottle of water (versus tap- be careful when you ask for water). Food runner took our apps while there was still items on the service plate, and our mouths were full of food. Then we waited 20 minutes for our entree, and still no drink refill. Just get a drink at the bar, cause that's awesome.

Very nice venue and we had a private dining room which was very nice. Room was a bit too dark and had everyone reaching for their phones and flashlight apps to read the menu. Service was pretty good, a bit laggy between visits but attentive.
The food was ok, was hoping for better flavors. Parts of six. Steaks were all over cooked and pre sliced??? Who does that? Chowder and burger were very good. Pork loins were just ok - too dry.
Cocktails were excellent! Everyone loved their drinks and the wine was also very good.

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.
