Met my wife and daughter at Restaurant 1833 for dinner. Gotta say that places like this that are unique and eclectic are not usually my thing...but I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. We were not too hungry, so we decided to get 4 or 5 of their appetizers. The nachos were very unique, and the brussel... More

Am amazing by place to try for a special occasion. We got there a little bit early and had a chance to sit at the bar for happy hour - the interior and decorations in the front room are amazing. And the drinks are great too. The dining area was empty when they let us in and I was very... More

We were in town for a couple days and are foodies, so a friend of ours recommended 1833 for their mixologist's drinks and great food. Creative drinks did not dissapoint and the ambience is incredible - dimly lit, romantic, old library feel with roaring fires in different cozy rooms with firepits out front. It really is worth seeking out for... More

The service was outstanding. Give Nicolle a raise! We had a dinner full of appetizers because we wanted to try everything.

Room was really cold! then waiter approached with menus. I said we had booked a table. He then went off to check and said would not... More

In September 2015 I hosted international guests from Japan at this restaurant. All three of us have eaten amazing food all over the world. Our experience of the September 2015 menu rivaled any one of the five star restaurants and service we experienced elsewhere. In November 2016 I hosted family members at this restaurant. Unfortunately, I live out of state... More

This converted house makes an interesting quirky setting for this restaurant. It's a little dark in places but adds atmosphere. There's lots of different styles of rooms for dining or drinking. The music was good, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of food and cocktails. So down to the food, we had the sprouts and oh my god they... More

We ate here Friday night and had an amazing time. When I came to write my review, I couldn't help but notice a lot of recent negative reviews. Reading a bit more I became a bit frustrated by many of them, as the ratings seem based on stuff that just plain doesn't make a lot of sense if you are... More
