An excellent (but expensive) meal. The service was outstanding, each entrée and appetizer (and dessert) was perfect. We were in the front room, and the little café-style chairs were very uncomfortable if you ever wanted to lean back -- it felt like you were reclining on a bamboo rack.

We will be back!

The service and foie gras was good, everything else was mediocre. Also don’t get the beet Wellington it was literally a big piece of boiled beet wrapped in a soggy pastry shell. If you are hoping for awesome flavors, beautiful plating, and a unique dining experience this place will disappoint.

Amazing, I went with my boyfriend for our 1-year anniversary and the food was great, service was great, and they even gave us a personalized menu, a card, and a take-home dessert gift to celebrate our anniversary.

It’s nice experience. Good service and food in general. The tasting menu is great, totally worths it . We had the oyster, foie gras, scallop, and duck. The oyster was little bit not as well as I expected. But all the others were perfect.

I reserved 1789 but was seated next door in a sports bar with paintings of football players on the wall - not very romantic!

We love 1789 and we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a very special dinner. We tried the seven course tasting menu and it was the best meal we have ever had. Each course contained superior ingredients and new flavors. The presentation was amazing as well. As always the service was attentive, warm and welcoming. Congratulations to 1789’s new chef.

This was our Valentines Day celebration. We had dined here many years ago in our youth. The meal was delicious, and service was superb. It was perfect. We will definitely return.

I was told that “all wine bottles would be 50% off, however, I was informed just as they were opening a bottle of Opus One that all wines over $250 would be full price. I was extremely disappointed with this, but the food was delicious.

Manager was not friendly. I asked to move our table, since it was really dark, they didn’t respond to my request. I couldn’t see my food and my bass had fishy smell. As general they did not give good service so I didn’t enjoy my dinner which cost us $200 for 2. I can’t recommend it as before it was my favorite place.
