1833 Ratings and Reviews
We love 1833 have been there many times although on this visit, there was a private event which really affected food quality in the restaurant.
Another area of opportunity is the noise level, it’s extremely loud when it gets full and very cold inside . We will definitely come back although our disappointment overall was frustrating
The go to place in oberlin. Quality well conceived and prepared food in a very comfortable and pleasant environment. We were not staying at hotel but met for brunch. Everything was yummy. We didn't recognize alot of the staff and they may be new and service can be slow but everyone is so nice and the food is great and worth any wait. Will return again and again. Thanks!
1833 is clearly different than the restaurant in the old Oberlin Inn. It is smaller, more modern and colorful. And the noise level is definitely higher especially for dinner. Service is friendly and efficient even when they are busy. At dinner, bread did not come with our drinks but this was easily remedied with the "break bread" appetizer which came with plenty of warm focaccia, seasoned butter and olive oil. House specialties are original and very nicely presented with ample portions, both at breakfast and dinner.
Food was wonderful from appetizer to dessert. Waitress could have been a little more attentive (drink refills and such). Only thing that would have made a good experience a great one would be if the windows had shades as we were blinded by the setting sun for a portion of the meal.
We absolutely love this restaurant. Appetizer portions are quite small and very difficult to share although main entrées are ample and quite delicious.
Our biggest problem with the restaurant is the noise Level. Extremely loud if there are people in the bar or loud talkers in the restaurant It would be nice if they address this as others had also mentioned this. Perhaps carpeting or some other sound absorbing materials around the restaurant would be make it bearable.
We love the food and the service, but hope something can be done to make the room QUIETER!. Sound-absorbing ceiling tiles? Carpeting, or some other more sound-absorbing option for the floor? Something (tapestries commissioned from the Oberlin College art
department?) to absorb the sound bouncing off the walls?
There gave been times when we have had to move to the lobby to eat, because we could not hear one another. Even the other night, when there were not very many other diners, we had frequently to ask one another to repeat what they had said. We are concerned that you are missing out on a whole generation of older customers! For a while, we didn't even consider coming there when we had friends visiting with whom we needed to catch up conversationally.
This is not as important, but you should know that we miss the atmosphere at the old Oberlin Inn, where the restaurant was more formal, with its windows looking out on the lovely garden. The ambience made a meal there feel more like a special occasion for birthdays,anniversaries, or simply "dates"? This one feels more like the old cafe/bar" Brewsters. Have you considered redecorating a bit or even adding a more "elegant" room that has a more formal atmosphere? Or perhaps that is in your building plans already.
We really enjoyed the well-prepared and presented, locally sourced, fresh food in a modern, urban chic atmosphere. The bar tender (also our waitress) was very friendly and attentive without being overly intrusive. We had a family group of 5 adults in town for a weekend series of chamber music concerts at Oberlin College. We stayed at the Oberlin Hotel and both the restaurant and hotel were excellent.
My wife's entree came with mashed potatoes & green beans as sides. I was surprised they charged an extra $5 to substitute additional green beans instead of the mashed potatoes. I guess they are pretty rigid about not making substitutions and penalizing you if you do.
I have never left a review on OpenTable before, but this hidden jewel was so amazing I just had to. Everything was incredible, and we could not believe that such an amazing restaurant existed in such an unexpected place. This is by far the best restaurant we have eaten at in over a year.
The food was wonderful the first two times we went (including the first night it was open). Our most recent visit was disappointing. The menu was less interesting, the food just was not as flavorful, the fish was overcooked and the dessert selection also was less innovative than before. However, the service was superb as ever and it's a beautiful room.
After having dined at the old Oberlin Inn for many years, I was excited to try this new place. First impression of atmosphere and decor was poor. I dislike the new modern look with concrete floors and metal chairs. It reminded me of eating at Chipotle. Once I got past the decor, the service was great and the food was OUTSTANDING!!! Much more upscale and pricey than old Oberlin Inn, but well worth it for the food! Well worth it for the food, but don't go there for a quaint, quiet, romantic dinner... You'll be disappointed in the ambiance if that's what you're looking for.
Very industrial and noisy. Not at all formal. Food was ok but nothing special. Service was good as expected. Servers could not take orders for a cocktail. Client had to walk to another room. The former Oberlin Inn was more formal, warm and appealing. I would eat there if in Oberlin but it's not a destination point.
First off, the number of 5 star ratings was more than a bit surprising. 1833 looks like work in process rather than a fully functioning restaurant.
Service was slow, but friendly, however getting a second cup of coffee required a request.
The lunch selections were tasty, but smallish.
The restaurant is tucked into a portion of the hotel lobby and decorated sparsely in an ultra modern theme .
While I think the setup works fine for breakfast or lunch, the minimalist approach seems odd for a restaurant with pretensions on fine dining.
Based on the setting and the menu, this place would not be on my list for dinner.
It's the only place in Oberlin that takes reservations, so you don't have much choice if you need one. If you have 8 or more, call them and ask if you can reserve the "back room," a semi-private space with a sliding door to screen it off from the rest. It's also one the three best places in town, along with Aladdin's and Black River cafe. For anyone who remembers the old dining room at the Oberlin Inn, this is radically different - open, airy, modern, casual and friendly. Generous portions (we ate both dinner and breakfast there). Good food, decent wine selection and a full bar. Service (provided mostly by Oberlin students) was a bit spotty, but they're still working out the kinks of a new place.
Food was delicious and the service was attentive and friendly. This new restaurant in the newly rebuilt Oberlin Hotel is a welcome addition to this lovely college town. The lobby bar is busy and a comfortable place to have a drink, alcoholic or not. Simple white table cloths on the dining room tables and more substantial and comfortable dining chairs would improve the overall ambiance.
Place is new, modern, clean. Our server was excellent...she regretted the long kitchen delay that
made our meal take way too long. (There was a large noisy party upstairs, and a large group in the private room downstairs...the kitchen was obviously overwhelmed on this particular
Saturday at 6pm.) We were comped for our drinks and apps and desserts which was appreciated.
The main courses were very good when they finally came.
We will give it another try, hoping that our first experience was an anomaly!
