1899 Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
The kitchen seemed to be dysfunctional. They did not tell our server that the fish was not available until she took our order there. I think it was the only fish on the menu, cutting many of us short. They made the wrong salad.
Will go again only when attending event at Prochnow...and there was one from out of town who will not return at all.
My wife and I had eaten there before and had a WONDERFUL experience. We went there this time and everything changed. Apparently the executive chef decided the menu needed to change so he put stuff that was more healthy. Also it seemed more geared toward the college crowd. We stayed at the hotel directly across the street and were excited to return to a place that had given us such a wonderful experience before. The menu had nothing that my wife would eat. For me I wanted a steak but settled for a hamburger. Problem was it came with cheese. When I said I didn't order cheese the response was that was the way it came. Bottom line the place catered to the college and not to the people staying at the hotel. Shame on them. The executive chef needs to use a little more common sense when making his menu.
Hostess wasn't accommodating and a little rude. Food was very disappointing . The waffle pretzels were good, but the nachos were gross (the flavor of the meat is what I think ruined it) and the mac n cheese tasted like it was from a box and the meat wasn't very good. The waiter and waitress (waitress was training new person) were very nice and helpful. For being such a nice restaurant and seeing some good reviews I was completely disappointed. Definitely will not recommend.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner to celebrate our anniversary. This was our first time at the 1899. The menu is brand new, too. Steaks were perfectly cooked. The cauliflower side was unique and worth trying if you like wasabi. It was a great experience and we will return.
I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and we absolutely loved it! Very nice and a fancy place to eat. Loved the environment and the setting this restaurant presented. The waiter was very kind and someone was always watching your glass to make sure it wasn't empty. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.
I have enjoyed this restaurant on more than one occasion. Each time I have been pleased with both the service, food and parking. I noticed that the menu has been somewhat downgraded to accommodate more of a college crowd, hence the reason for 4 stars. I still recommend this restaurant.
Felt like a diner ... very bright lighting even during 7 pm dinner seating. Presentation was beautiful but food was mediocre. I ordered the pork and although the flavors were good, the pork was overcooked. My daughter chose the restaurant based on its vegan menu item but neither she nor I cared for the dish and it went uneaten. Our sever was very sweet and I tipped her well, but she didn't manage the timing of drink delivery, order taking, food delivery, etc well. Will try a different restaurant during our next visit to Flagstaff
As always, excellent food and ambiance. We were in town to scope out some wedding venues for our son and his fiance. Since we were staying at the Drury Inn and Suites, it was convenient to simply make a reservation for dinner at the 1899. And since he's a NAU Alumni we wanted to support a restaurant that is attached to the university.
We went to dinner at the 1899 Grill prior to attending the Flagstaff Symphony. Despite several hundred NAU students standing in line for another event, but making it look like we might have to stand in line, we were greeted warmly and told why the students were there waiting. They were expecting us, seated us immediately. The food was great, served in a timely manner, and very economical as my husband and I share a plate. We ran into friends but had no problem getting our food, bill, etc. so that we had plenty of time to get to the concert. Wait staff and hostess very accommodating. Our friend left her keys there, but they were waiting for her when we returned. Lovely evening.
Food was outstanding- however the service missed the mark. The staff appeared awkward and inattentive. It seemed like it was a group of inexperienced students who had just been given uniforms that day. Definitely did not know how to communicate or keep an attentive eye on the guests.
It was welcome week and the flyer sent to all freshman at orientation started the was happy hour till 9 all week. They were unable to honor that. The Ceasar salad dressing was the kind made with mayo. Everyone seemed in a rush to leave. Cafeteria atmosphere with a few fancier things. Not worth the money.
We attended 1899 with our son for Mother's Day Brunch- the taste of the food and service was good, however, we all felt that for a Mother's Day Brunch, some traditional brunch items were missing. Instead of an omelette station, there was a pasta station, no fruit or salad bars. There were scrambled eggs but with mushrooms, scallions and more. Sometimes too much is just too much. The only breakfast items were those and bacon and dark chocolate french toast- which was not very good. We also paid $35 per person, and were charged extra for coffee and orange juice- at every other brunch we've been to, those plus soda have been included. I think if you're going to do a Mother's Day Brunch, you should do it well, or just stick with menu items. We weren't impressed with their brunch.
Took my family at the end of the year to spend the remainder of my Dining Dollars. I had gone a few days earlier for a birthday dinner with friends and had a wonderful meal with a great waiter. However, the server for my family lunch was not very good. He was quite slow and when it came time to pay for the meal he mixed up the charge with another table. It took awhile for him to charge me the right amount, but I ended up still getting charged for the other table. He lost me $33 Dining Dollars that I never got back. I was very disappointed by this and the fact that it was never remedied even though it was brought to multiple people's attention.
Excellent food preparation and delicious overall. I'd like to see more appetizers or at least one entree that is designed as a low-cost option, rather that a "full entree" at full market price. I am pleased with the entrees and the appetizers, but would like to see a rotating option that would be suitable as a "half-entree", or a sampler, for $12-15, for instance?
