You'll never believe you're still in Manhattan once you step into our New Orleans inspired restaurant. We have live music every day and even a hidden speakeasy downstairs (open select days). Come have a bowl of our famous Jambalaya and wash it down with a refreshing Hurricane cocktail. Cheers!

    Way too loud in there. It’s impossible to have a conversation while the band is playing, don’t recommend coming here if you’re trying to have a conversation because you won’t be able to hear one another. Food is okay, definitely doesn’t feel like auntheic Cajun food

    Our first time dining at 1803. Big success. Cocktails were truly fabulous - special. I'd go back for Happy Hour just to drink a Purple Reign! The food was scrumptious - Cajun but refined. We munched on the delicious Sprouts for an app, with some Coconut Curry Mussels that were addictively good. I ordered Branzino which was perfectly cooked - and I mean perfectly. My fellow diners similarly enjoyed their pork chop and honeyed ribs. We shared the Bread Pudding (delicious) and Lime Tart (a little too sweet) for dessert... and left very full and very happy. A great find; we'll be going back for sure.

    The host was very accommodating. The waitress was kind & attentive. The servers did a great job as well. The ambiance was fitting. The prices were good. Although we didn’t really enjoy the entrées, the drinks and appetizers were on point. It was our 2nd time there, so I’d say I recommend giving this spot a try.

    We picked a place close to where we were going to be and were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. The fall salad was enough for three to share and dressed perfectly. The branzino was amazing, the shrimp and grits awesome but lots of garlic and the jambalaya was more than I could eat, spicy but very good. The wine selection was creative including orange wines and service was right there for us. Louisiana was a great purchase back in 1803 and 1803 NYC is as well!

    I enjoyed 1803 very much. The music, although a bit too loud, was phenomenal. They could take the volume down a notch. Couldn't hear each other talk. Food was very good and decor is adorable. I would definitely return.

    Great food, but insanely loud music made it super uncomfortable. All they have to do is lower the volume by half and you can still hear the fun music, but they’ve got it up so loud as if that makes things more fun, and it just gives you a headache after a while.

    Mitten im Essen wurden wir umgesetzt, in die letzte Ecke des Restaurants. Ab da mussten wir immer proaktiv auf uns aufmerksam machen, wenn wir etwas bestellen wollten. Das Personal war mit der Bestellung leider überfordert. 5 Minuten nach dem Appatizer kam direkt der Hauptgang, meine Frau hatte bis dahin nichtmal 1/5 gegessen. Alles war danach kalt, außer der Wein, der komplett warm war, weil es keinen Kühler gab. Sehr unprofessionell für diese Preise… Die live Musik war hingegen sehr gut aber etwas sehr laut…

    The food was very good, but the music, especially the singing, was too loud. You couldn't hear the person you were eating with and we ended up leaving as a result before dessert. If the amp was turned down a bit, it would have been a much more enjoyable experience, because the music wasn't bad.

    I originally tried to book a table at 1803 online & was unable to get the timeslot I wanted. After calling the restaurant, they were able to accommodate 2 of us at 6:30pm on a Friday evening. It was my husband's birthday, so we wanted a relaxing night. The venue is lovely, great decor, truly reminiscent of NOLA. They have a large outdoor space too & if I am not incorrect, there were heaters outside. High tables inside, were a little small to fit plates & glasses on comfortably. When the appetizers came, the food was excellent. Portions were a good size, and the flavors were wonderful. My only complaint was that we felt very rushed. The entrees were brought out before we had even finished our appetizers, in spite of my previous request that we had a break in between courses. The 2nd time an attempt to bring our entrees out, I complained to a bar staff member & we were swiftly spoken to by Anthony, the general manager, who proceeded to ensure completely fresh dishes were made for us and that we had a good break before the food came out. This allowed us to enjoy the live band that was playing, (6-9pm). The jazz music was great and played at a volume level that still allowed you to hear your own conversation. I had the jambalaya & my husband the steak frites. Both were really good & again, good portion sizes. I had to bag some of mine up! Anthony also ensured that the rest of our evening went without a hitch, so that we left happy. Overall, the atmosphere and vibe were great. I really appreciate when staff try to correct a customer complaint & at 1803, this was achieved without it seeming like a problem. At the end of the day, my husband had a great birthday & we left, knowing we will be back very soon. FYI, they do have a happy hour on drinks but reckon on spending $100 a head for 3 courses & drinks.

    Place was almost empty and have to wait 10 minutes to get a beer(from the moment I ordered it). Server was pushing multiple times to get the food order. When she got the order she never came back to ask if we need anything. I was seating with an empty drink for 20 minutes. Food was good. Service was terrible.
