The food was exquisitely prepared. Each plate was a work of art and created a sublime taste bite. The staff were exceptional hosts. The ambiance of the restaurant showed amazing attention to detail down to the understated scented candles complementing the floral notes in the first few plates:

About the restaurant
Mark and Mary Shapley began this dining tradition in 1985 and soon became one of the premier restaurants in the state. After taking a break to raise their two girls, they have returned with the same great food and service everyone came to know. Great steaks and seafood along with their famous tamales are still the main attraction along with an impressive bar and wine offerings. Please come by and see for yourself how special this restaurant is. We were recently voted 'Best Fine Dining' by the readers of Mississippi Magazine

This is our “go to” spot for celebrating special occasions or just treating ourselves to a nice night out! From the host/hostess, the expediters, the servers, everyone you come in contact with shows the epitome of courtesy. Their steaks are the best I’ve ever enjoyed anywhere, the redfish off the charts! So thankful for local owners who consistently show their commitment to providing an exceptional dining experience! Highly recommend for a memorable evening!

Food, ambiance, entertainment, service and Mimosas were all great. I was disappointed but not surprised that menu had changed to no longer include breakfast potatoes with traditional eggs Benedict but price was increased. Anyway, we love the Jazz Brunch and will return.

Natchez
About the restaurant
At Restaurant 1818 you will dine in what was originally the Men's and Ladies’ Parlors of the Main House. These two parlors are adorned with authentic period crystal gasoliers. These impressive reproduction chandeliers and wall sconces were custom made for Monmouth by the artisans at Waterford Crystal in Ireland.

Guests have complete dining freedom when they reserve a table at Restaurant 1818. Here guests can select menu items on an a la carte basis from the gourmet appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and desserts offered that evening. A full wine list and wine by the glass program is available to ensure your dining experience is the very best Natchez has to offer!

Private dining by candlelight is also offered for 8 to 12 people at the main dining room table. This room exemplifies the elegant dining experience which has been customary since the days of John and Eliza Quitman.

We decided upon Natchez Mississippi to celebrate my father’s 81st birthday and had dinner for 6 at 1818, which was absolutely decadent! The food, service, and ambience were fabulous, and we met the owners, who were having dinner right next to us and checking on us to ensure it was all perfect! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
