It was our first time here. My husband and I work in Easton but live an hour away and had the opportunity to meet for dinner on the way home after a business event. We chose the Hotel Bethlehem because we were thinking of having our company holiday dinner here. It was a Monday night, so although the Tap Room was busy, the terrace restaurant was not. However, everything was perfect. Ambiance, food, drinks and service were all excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we definitely be back.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The staff is friendly and courteous. The menu items sounded delicious. There were only about 4 other tables being used, it was not a busy night.
I ordered the farmhouse roasted chicken. The menu specified that the chicken was a bone in piece of chicken. I love a good succulent roast chicken. The chicken brought out to me was two boneless skinless chicken breasts that had been grilled and were over done. My spouse ordered the duck which was described on the menu as having crackling skin. The duck arrived rare without the crunchy skin. The flavor of the duck was delicious but not as described on the menu.
Our waiter did ask how our meals were after we had had them for a while, and he did offer to have the meals replated, but we had already eaten most of the meal, so we declined. To compensate we were not charged for the dessert we had, which I appreciated.
The evening we dined at the 1741 Terrace was a cold blustery Spring evening. We were cold in the restaurant even though we had dressed for the weather.
Our bill for the evening was about $135 for 2 salads, 2 entrees, 2 drinks and 1 dessert. We will not return, as overall the main expectation for the evening would be an excellently prepared meal, which we did not get.

Celebrating our 41st Anniversary was a memorable experience at the Terrace. Our server, Donna was very attentive and answered all of our questions knowledgeably. The whole evening was quiet and allowed us to relax and enjoy our food and beverages. We enjoyed the price fixe menu with the wine parings. This will be a favorite spot for future dinners.

The waiter was a bit inexperienced. I asked the waiter and bus boy for olive oil, but neither of them brought it. The waiter did not offer to pour the bottle of Louis Latour we purchased. The one duck ravioli appetizer was very small and was underwhelming. My friend had the beet salad which was very good. The orrichette pasta was ok. Short ribs were a bit fatty but tasty, and the chocolate tart was not very good. I cannot remember saying that about a chocolate dessert.

Impeccable service. We made the reservation for our anniversary, without exception, every staff member wished us a Happy Anniversary and we were offered a complimentary Champagne upon being seated. Soups (Carrot & Chicken Curry) were very good to great. Entrees (Salmon & Cod) were good. Dessert (Chocolate Tart & Apple Financier) was also good. Coffee was very good.

We recently dined here for my wife's birthday during our stay at the hotel. I have to be honest, it didn't start off great. We had a reservation, but stood in the doorway for almost 15 minutes past our scheduled time without being approached by anyone (multiple wait staff ignored us, and the host completely ignored us, then was nowhere to be found). We finally went over to one of the waiters, and got her attention (she was very friendly, and fortunately ended up being our waiter) to take our reservation and seat us. From that point on, everything was excellent. The food, drinks, ambiance - especially at Christmastime - and service was wonderful. The menu is limited, but everything on it caters to a true food and drink lover's palette. They also are very accommodating to your young one(s). I do not believe this restaurant is meant for children under 12, but they did not make our 7-year old feel that way. This was especially nice since we were traveling/staying with our daughter, but still able to enjoy a beautiful setting and meal without snooty looks, comments, or treatment (those came from the other diners, but not the restaurant staff).

My wife and I were in Bethlehem for the new year celebration. The 1741 is on the indoor terrace of the hotel. Nice room with high ceiling and tables not jammed together. When we got there we were offered a table overlooking Main Street which was decorated for the season. The horse drawn carriages that passed by added to the beautiful view out of the window. I had the filet and my wife had the sea bass. Both done as they should be.

My wife and I went on a date to the 1741 Terrace. We had a terrific meal. The food was excellent. I asked for a window seat when I made the reservation. The view of Main Street with all of the Christmas lights and the snow was just wonderful and delighted my wife. It's a beautiful restaurant, great service and delicious food... such a special place to have a date.

The table was not ready at our reservation time. The food was good but a few things were unavailable that were on the menu. Service was mediocre. One person got coffe and dessert. The other coffee came 5 minutes later and we saw the waiter standing there talking to another waiter with the coffee in his hand. When everyone was just about finished and the Sambuca still hadn’t come we called the waiter. He said “I know it’s not here. The bar will let me know when it is ready.” Really? They never offered to put the bill on our room even though we were staying at the hotel.
On the positive side the room is beautiful and the view is lovely. The food is good.

We surprised my mom with dinner for Christmas. She was beyond excited and pleased with the food and service. We ordered the cheese platter which was a great way to start. I had the chicken, my mom had the lobster ravioli, and my husband had steak - Of course, we all tried each others! Everything was delicious, our server was great, the wine was wonderful. It was truly a memorable night and would consider making it a yearly tradition.
