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

The building and interiors are attractive and the welcome on arrival warm. Unfortunately the restaurant was cold. We were in for an early dinner and the fires had ,on this cold night , not heated the place up to a comfortable level. The menu was limited . The table shared a 6 starters and they were well prepared and tasty.... More

This was our second visit to 1833. Our first meal there a year ago was so good we wanted to try it again. It did not disappoint. We started out in the bar with cocktails that were crafted expertly. They had unique drinks on the menu that were wonderful. We sat in the Sunroom for dinner. The place was busy... More

The menu in this restaurant offers limited choices and the food description are very weird requiring extensive translation by the helpful staff. However, the food itself was of a high standard. We started with halibut croquets which whilst nice were not special. The main course of smoked salmon was excellent as was the ravioli. Overall it was quite expensive, especially... More

Takes forever to get your food. Our server was nice but took over and hour for two steaks cooked medium rare and nothing was taken off bill. We needed off just leaving.

Had heard great things about food and ambiance. Okay the building is great. Restaurant had a nice look to it. Nice outside dining area. But very loud rock music inside and out seemed inappropriate. Wait staff was very casual to the point of being poorly trained. (Not a fan of their denim & checkered short attire) Menu was biggest disappointment.... More

This was our second time here, and both time we absolutely loved the cocktails and the food was great! This time we had the everything hawaiian bread and artichoke dip to start and they were amazing, and we had some really smooth martinis. The dessert was also awesome, and we aren't usually big dessert people, but it was the right... More

Visited tonight to try out the new menu, having dined numerous times under the old chef. We were both very impressed by the risotto and the kale salad, but were absolutely blown away by the revamp to the 1833 burger. The triple cooked chips were the best I've had in the US, and the burger itself using bakers bacon (SO... More

I have never written a review before but this place was so bad I had to speak up. We were seated near the bar, and waited awhile finally ordered two beers and a pizza. They have nothing on tap, they gave me like a water glass of beer and did not even fill it all the way. Then we waited... More
