Reviewed 1 January 2014

If you're a meat eater this is the place for you. The meat is prepared beautifully and is fantastic. Great service and wines to match.

“Another good experience”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

This was our 3rd visit to 1796. This visit was not as food in terms of quality and service as our last 2 experiences, but the resort was very busy so this could had been the issue. The salads are ridiculously overpriced and uninspired but the entrees were fantastic. I enjoyed the salmon, done to perfection, and my husband enjoyed a roast chicken. The sides are ala carte and the sautéed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes were delicious. We did not have dessert but the desserts were very good at my last visit.

“Great setting and good meal”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

The food was excellent. Steak cooked perfectly, ribs were incredibly tender. The wait staff is attentive. However, the wine prices are overpriced with a 4x mark up-- more than your standard restaurants.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

The service was fantastic and the food was cooked very well. The waitress helped us pick out a delightful bottle wine. Bread was served first-not that great but served with butter that had sea salt on it-unusual and good. Tomato appetizer was outstanding-kalamata olive spread, fresh tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese and truffle oil-to die for. We both had salmon which was cooked well but a little oversalted. Rather pricey but very good.

“Good food...not exceptional”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Our waitress was not the most attentive. Our cocktails sat on her tray while she chatted too long with another table.
The portions are huge, and therefore, very pricy. My husband and I shared a mediocre Caesar salad. The croutons were so big and impossible to cut. A neighboring table ordered the wedge salad. It filled a dinner sized plate! I will say that my filet was perfectly cooked and very good. My husband's chicken was dry. I gave him some of my steak sauce to moisten it. The meals come with a lonely little artichoke heart, so it is necessary to order a side. The smoked cheese mashed potatoes were excellent. I have had many more very excellent meals, and thought this one was over priced for the quality of the dinner.
