Excellent dining experience. Food was delicious, atmosphere was romantic and classy, and servers were pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. An added plus was watching the snow fall looking out from the floor the ceiling windows overlooking Main St.

Our family loves to celebrate special occasions in the 1776 room. Our favorite waiter is Bob.
He is very attentive and makes our evening quite memorable.

The dinner was amazing. The service was really good, they followed a request I made during the reservation.
It was not perfect because a small details during the service as missing to serve the wine and diferent time serving the desert.

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.

Another wonderful experience at this fantastic restaurant. The food, service and ambiance are always consistent. The atmosphere is so inviting. It has such a special feel. It’s not so easy to find a place this perfect in every way.

We went to Terrace for my wife's birthday and it was an excellent experience with a great staff. Located in Hotel Bethlehem, the views of Bethlehem & large windows make for a great seating experience. The food was excellent as well as the drinks menu. Highly recommended when in town.

As always the food and service were outstanding. The restaurant was beautifully decorated. You can tell the staff takes pride in all they do - it shows :)

Took my husband for his birthday on New Year's Eve. They were very accommodating and the food and service was outstanding! I would go back. The decorations for Christmas we're stunning!

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.

Food temperature was warm at best. Kitchen was slow. Busboy/busgirl they were great though! First time we’ve gone there and it will be the last. Not worth the price we paid for our dinners.

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.
