We had a really lovely dinner and enjoyed the food and wine. The only downside was that our table was draughty and so I was a bit cold. Next time I’d ask for a table near the fire.
Aurora are lucky to have such a good restaurant and hotel.

Atmosphere really good. Food good. Had to wait an hour past our reservation time but didn’t mind because we were at the bar having a few really good drinks. Had breakfast the next day which was really nice. Will definitely be back.

We've dined at the 1833 (formerly named Aurora Inn Restaurant) many times, and never have been disappointed. Nice wine list and a good selection of menu items. The chefs here know what they're doing in the kitchen.

Had an absolute wonderful time at brunch. Went with the in-laws -- it's their favorite place to go. Great food, great server, great ambience -- we enjoyed it tremendously.

The Aurora in is a beautifully restored old inn, and this restaurant is part of it. The room is beautiful and comfortable. There is a lovely outdoor area overlooking the lake, but since we were there at night in late October we obviously could not use it. Food was delicious, drinks were good, and service was friendly and efficient.

We really enjoyed our brunch! The atmosphere is so cozy and intimate - we sat nearby a fireplace in a private corner not surrounded by others and it was great. The food was also phenomenal - especially the home fried potatoes served with most of the breakfast dishes. Highly recommend! We did indicate on our reservation that it was my fiance's birthday, but nobody acknowledged that...that would be the only down side.

LOVE the bar renovation!!!😘
Ben led us to the sweet table for 2 right in front of the fireplace...and since it was a rainy chilly day, that was just perfect!!!😘
We had wine while enjoying the amazingly great seafood chowder and the burrata special—so good!!!
Then I had the scallop dish with that fabulous risotto...I think it was leek based?!
And my husband had the tenderloin...quite excellent!!!😘
I love the entire dining area!!! It’s cozy and gorgeous!!
And I’ve never had anything there that I didn’t love!!
Too full for dessert!!!😂
Next time!!💙

The atmosphere was great, wonderful food, great drinks. Unfortunately, the service wasn’t great. Our waitress was so-so and the staff at the front desk was almost comically rude. I didn’t say a word, but my husband also noticed. We laughed on the ride home about how rude the young ladies at the front desk were. They were almost sarcastic. We’re still pretty young, definitely not old and stuffy customers. Those girls really need a lesson in hospitality and manners.

The service was incredible and Tammy our server was a pro. Our meal from appetizer to main course was delicious. It was great way to celebrate a birthday! The only thing I'd change is for the restaurant to lose the canned and loud lame violin cover muzak.

Both the food and the setting were outstanding. From the appetizers to the main course the food left you wanting more. Krissy was our waitress and was both professional and personable. She explained everything well and gave us enough time and space that we didn’t feel rushed but we never had to find her to ask for something....she always sensed it and was right there

We had dinner and then breakfast at 1833 Kitchen & Bar. The meal was great, but it would be unfair to just consider the meal - as the restaurant is just one prong of a multi-faceted renovation and restoration project that is the Aurora Inn and its sister inns in the town of Aurora, all under common ownership. Each property is more meticulously restored and maintained than the next. A visit to Aurora would be a highlight of any trip you might be planning.

We enjoyed a very nice day in Aurora and we ate at the Inn. We were greeted warmly, felt very welcome and the hostess steered us to a cozy table for two. Our waitress was wonderful also. The only very small matter was the bar. We were there early and didn’t feel quite as welcome by the bartender but I realize not everyone is having a great day. It turned out fine.

Very comfortable dining room. Welcoming staff and service. Flatware was placed directly on tabletop which was wiped off with same cloth used to wipe seats etc. . Straws for water were unwrapped and plastic(not paper) and handled by waitress. Great restaurant but needs to attend to possible unsanitary concerns.
