    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    The television in the bar area was way to loud and could be heard all over the restaurant. The food was not worth the price you pay. I ordered a filet and it was overcooked and instead of offering to redo it they suggested I order something different even though the steak was what I wanted. I ordered ribs that were like charcoal on the ends. And burnt BBQ sauce like they were reheated too long. I will never return to this place. You pay 100 dollars for dinner for two and the food is something you would expect at a place that offers a 2 for $20 menu.

    The 1899 bar and grill is a beautiful sight. We made a reservation for 7 and we were promptly seated. Our waitress was friendly and quickly took our order. The food took an unusually long amount of time, close to an hour. When we did receive our food, I was surprised at how small the portions were considering the price. We ended up leaving still feeling hungry.

    Would recommend 1899 in a heartbeat! Had the scallops, which are very easy to overcook, and they were utter perfection! The calamari is also delicious and the aioli sauce paired perfectly. My compliments to the chefs of 1899!

    We went here to have a special going away dinner for our daughter. The restaurant is beautiful and service is great but the food is just poor to fair. Was really looking forward to the smoked ribs but they were nothing special and the napolean was not very good. Husbands chicken was fine.

    We enjoyed the selection of all menu items. Great flavors and excellent presentation. Nice wine and beer offerings. Easy to locate on the NAU campus and across street from Drury Inn. On DuPont street. Wonderful history since opening September 11, 1899 but modern updated decor and ambiance. Enjoy Saturday night dining with guest from out of town. All commented they would return again.

    Food and service were very good. My complaint is that initially the recorded music was just a bit too loud for the fine dining experience. That was acceptable compared to the live guitarist who started about mid-way through our meal. You could not understand what he was saying when he introduced a song and, at least in my opinion, the volume was not the background music it should have been. Instead he was the show rather than the food and conversation at the table. Not what we expected!

    Even though the restaurant was quite busy with lots of parties waiting, our group of 6 was seated promptly to our reserved table. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious...especially the hanger steak (cooked to perfection) and the steelhead trout.

    Compared to other restaurants we have dined at lately this place is on the spot with EVERYTHING; friendliness, service, recommendations on food items, and knowledge of the menu. As it was our anniversary they placed flowers on our table and offered us a free dessert. The food was very good, our steaks were delicious. Our server, Sidney, was very attentive and the bartender, Alexx, was great as well. We can't wait to take friends in for the happy hour.

    The food was tasty and our group enjoyed it. The service wasn't up to par. There was confusion starting from the time we were seated. They weren't sure where our table was, they got confused taking drink orders, drinks arrived one at a time and very slowly, food took a while too come out. They apologized for the slow food service by bringing us sherbet while we waited for the food. The waitress was nice but has an awful, constant, and grating Nevis laugh. We've eaten there once or twice previously and things went much more smoothly. This was a special birthday dinner which I indicated on the reservation but no mention was made of it, and the whole experience was disappointing.

    We were very disappointed in the food. The spinach dip was fair, the lobster stuffed mushrooms were bland but the low light of the evening was the $34 filet. It was super thin, over cooked and had absolutely no flavor. (Did I mention the caprese salad had too much green thick pesto?) Biggest insult of the evening was the check - 87 dollars for a very disappointing meal.

    Cheerful hostess and waitress but we had to wait too long to order, get served and pay. My husband loved his beef stroganoff but my scallops were plated with some very bitter kale that made them bitter. Since it is a teaching restaurant associated with NAU I did tell the waitress who let the cooks know.

    I was really pleased with the ambience (fireplace seating in the lounge) and booths/tables in the elegant, open-designed dining room. The wait-staff was very attentive but not overly so. They made accurate suggestions about food and drinks. We enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail/beer in the lounge with a good selection of wines/beers/bar-snacks at reduced pricing during happy hour (4-6PM). My husband and I shared a wedge salad (excellent w/pickled onions garnish). Our dinner entrees were the porterhouse chop and half rack of the 1899 BBQ ribs - all excellent. I would also recommend a glass of their 1448 Runquist red wine.

    We were a larger party on graduation Saturday night. Seating was immediate at the time we requested on reservation. Food probably a little overpriced but drinks specials great. Ribs and filet were both outstanding entrees, those who got garlic/cheddar mashed potatoes raved about them. There were other large groups as well which may explain wait times for drinks and food. It was our plan for the evening so we didn't mind, but getting drinks out more expediently would have made things smoother. The breads and varied butters that were served upon seating were wonderful, but also made us hope our drinks would arrive soon. It was an unusual and fun night for a celebratory dinner; the waitstaff was good and friendly, just very busy.

    I decided to go here for my 18th birthday. First time I received my drink. There was something floating in it, it had a hair in it, and I sent it back because it was flat and tasteless. The salads and appetizers were not brought put at the same time so I had to sit and watch half the table eat for atleast 5 minutes. I then order the calamari and the dip had a dry top to it like it had sat out for awhile. I then get to the main course and they get the temperature of my steak wrong so I had to send it back. Then we get to dessert and the creme brulee was soupy and the cheesecake was dry. I will not be returning unless changes are made.

    Online reserve was very convenient, and table was ready when we arrived; we decided to wait in lobby for two persons of our group of 8 to arrive. There was a large party in the banquet room who came over to the bar and the bar was not large enough to accommodate that sort of traffic but we were able to get drinks at the table just as easily. Service was very good (several servers were working on our table with one in charge--so it was efficient; food served quickly. The food, whose prices make 1899 a place I would go for special occasions but not a regular destination, was excellent. All guests very satisfied. Ambient noise was high enough to make us comfortable with animated discussion but didn't impede our conversation.

    For the amount of food that you get at this restaurant, you would think that the quality would be outstanding but it is mediocre at best and I would never pay this much money for the food if I didn't have to spend my dining dollars. The restaurant should either increase the quality of their food for how much people have to pay, or increase portion sizes to fill up the diners rather than deprive them. That being said, the wings were the best part of the menu and you wouldn't expect to order wings at a restaurant of this atmosphere.
