The service was impeccable and the food was very good. We try to make a date every December for a girls' night out because we love the Christmas ambiance. The view from a window table is spectacular. We also love the gift shop that is filled with original and unique items. Penn State creamery ice cream is also a plus.

Well worth the visit, extremely accommodating....we had 5:45 reservations and some of our party had a hard time getting there since we went the night it snowed and it was no problem with the restaurant. Food was very good and the place looked very festive for the holidays. I will return for a special occasion...maybe my birthday :)

Had to wait 20 minutes after our 7:45 reservation. There were empty tables when we entered. Shrimp appetizer was over cooked. Chicken dinner was dry and tastleless. The Lamb Oscobucco was just, OK. Very disappointing experience. The food was probably 50% overpriced for the quality. Beautiful room. Scarce waitstaff.

Overall experience was well below average. Service was slow; it took over 30 minutes after being seated to even get menus let alone drinks or food. Food is overpriced for the quality and the ambience/service certainly don’t make up for it as a reason for the high prices. There are dozens of other better places in the Lehigh Valley and at least four in downtown Bethlehem that I would choose over 1741 on the terrace. Look elsewhere.

We had a wonderful evening with friends. The restaurant is noted for its elegance and well prepared food. We were unaware that it is not handicapped accessible. My friend has MS and must ride her scooter for mobility. We arrived to find a large staircase preventing her from entering the 1741 dining room. The hotel was decorated throughout with lovely glittering Christmas decorations. Our next option was to go into the tavern but all of those tables were reserved with a sizable wait for us. The manager was extremely accommodating and offered to set up a table in the lobby. There was a large round table in an area out of the traffic. Quickly they put a linen table cloth on with table settings and we were seated. It was wonderful to enjoy the festive decorations, the good food and the conversation while dining with our good friends. The dinner was pricey but worth the experience. We'll have a nice memory of a pleasant occasion. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Wanted an intimate dinner for two. Everything was wonderful. Only concern was the very loud jazz band playing in other restaurant in the hotel. It took away from the experience of this beautiful facility. Thursday night is jazz night at hotel Bethlehem. Pick another night in you'd like the experience to be perfect.

I love to hear jazz musicians...just not at that volume.

The service was great, the staff was very attentive. Atmosphere was very unique, probably one of the few places around with a good amount of historic, old world charm.

Food was very good and was served hot. A bit dissapointed the dish I ordered did not at least come with a vegetable side. Guess that's their idea of leaving room for dessert.

We ate in the Terrace, which is a very large room with a high ceiling. Can get noisy.

Overall, a very good dining experience all around.

First time here to dine. I wanted to do something special for our 30th wedding anniversary. The restaurant totally accommodated my request for special seating next to a window and also did a very nice complementary glass of champagne for both of us! Dinner was delicious and gourmet. We both had beef, filet for my wife and sirloin for me. Served with grilled asparagus and a delicious potato, which we wished was served with more! I had the fried oyster appetizer which was also delicious and my wife had a Caesar salad which was very light and tasty. We finished off with splitting a creme brulee. The atmosphere is astounding with beautiful architecture and soaring windows that provide a wonderful view of the streets of Bethlehem. It's a great place to people watch. The only down fall for us was that being July 4th, most of the shops were not open, so we had to spend our day elsewhere and then come here for dinner. The doormen were very nice and helpful as well providing us with a parking spot right next to the door. Service was very good, though I must say I would have appreciated a bit more attention, as we ran out of butter and needed more. Also was a bit disappointed that they did not have my favorite bourbon (Blanton's) so I had to settle for Woodford Reserve. I could thing of worse things to have to deal with! LOL All in all, a wonderful experience for a special occasion and I would highly recommend dining here. We will be back, perhaps for a full day in Bethlehem and shopping in town finished off with a nice meal here.
