It was temporarily closed. I was really looking forward to eating here. I hope they reopen soon!

Continues to cancel our reservations. Still have yet to eat here. Other than that, great experience!

Made a reservation for Thanksgiving a month in advance and found out it was closed for a week with a bunch of other people. Would've been nice if they updated and didn't accept over the phone reservation.

Delicious! The salmon was amazing and great service-not stuffy just friendly.

Way overpriced. Cannot get a glass of wine have to buy the entire bottle. No dinner salads.

Quite the gathering spot. Wonderful outdoor patio with firepit. A gem in the center of historical Monterey. Service was wonderful. Very unusual food that was hearty, flavorful, and fresh. You will leave gastronomically satisfied. Brussel sprouts were highly recommended and did not disappoint.

The setting is unique. We were told our dinners would take 20 - 25 minutes to be prepared. Our waiter asked us if we wanted to purchase an appetizer, but no bread was offered (unlike other restaurants in Monterey). I was disappointed by my dinner - way too much money for a small piece of salmon on a puree. Although the salmon was good, I left feeling hungry. I would not go back here again.

One of the BEST dining experiences I have ever experienced including those in New York City, Boston and San Francisco. It’s so unique and the service was top notch. As expected the menu was a little pricey but just enough to keep the riff raff out. We will Be back!

We had a great time at 1833. We found it through Eater and thought it would be fun to check out a great restaurant in a haunted home. 1833 did not disappoint. The food was delightful, location is charming, highly recommend it.

The Nachos and Salmon Ceviche were pretty great! And the Old Fashioned was one of the best we had in a while, but unfortunately my Husbands steak was cold and had no flavor. I had the chicken and lentils. They were okay. I think next time we will stop at appetizers and cocktails.

Very good food, cool old house. Primary server excellent, cocktail server slow to ask if we needed service on outside patio.

My husband and I went here while on vacation. I love the ambience of the restaurant, cozy cushioned chairs and comfy leather benches. Lighting was with beautiful chandeliers in a multi room restaurant with big band music playing in the background. A bit different than other restaurants in the area which is one of things I liked about it. Our waiter, Dominic, was not only friendly and personable but also extremely knowledgeable about the menu from appetizers to drinks to desserts. He was fantastic and was able to help us decide on various items when we were on the fence. He recommended the strawberry shortcake dessert which was definitely worth the extra calories! The entire dining experience was wonderful and I would definitely return on our next visit and highly recommend it to others.

Our evening started off great with a warm greeting from the staff & prompt seating for our 7PM reservation. The menu is not extensive but they have some interesting choices. My wife and I started with the steak tartar which came after almost 30 minutes of our initial order. We were in no hurry and were enjoying our wine so it wasnt a big deal to wait. After finishing our appetizer, we waited another 45 minutes for our main courses, I had order the BBQ pork and my wife had the shrimp scampi pasta. The wait staff and busboys came frequently to check on us and make sure we were well hydrated. Finally our waiter came by and said our mains would be out shortly and said he would go back to the kitchen to lean on the chef. The restaurant was only 1/2 full & so it didnt appear to be slammed with big parties or a big dinner rush but we hung in there for the wait. When my pork came to the table, it looked good although the BBQ sauce slathered on it looked like an effort to cover something up than enhance the dish. When I took my first bite, my heart sank, the meat was stone cold, dry and over cooked. The foundation of rice, beans and collard greens were nice and warm as was the small piece of cornbread but the meat was a lost cause. I should have sent it back but we were so hungry by then and I didnt want to wait another 30 minutes for another order. At that point we decided to skip dessert at 1833 and try something else once we ate what we could of our dishes. My wife said hers was good and the seafood in it looked fresh and came to the table at the proper temperature. Now whether the food came cold was the waiters fault or the chef, I couldnt say but our waiter seemed to be attentive enough. Another waiter in the same area made several disappointing comments to customers about other dishes they were considering ordering and I though this was very unprofessional. Loved the history of the place but the food was very disappointing.

My wife and I came here for our anniversary and we absolutely loved it. Excellent service, great ambiance and overall delicious food. We will be making this our annual spot for our anniversary. Since we have an Oct anniversary, the spooky vibe was perfect... My wife loved it!
