    Fantastic food and service!! 1875 made my Dad's 84 years old Birthday an experience to remember!! We had a wonderful time. Drinks were wonderful and the BING CHERRY flames at the end of the meal were off the hook.

    Food was good. We had the colossal shrimp, wagyu meatballs and the chorizo and potato soup from the appetizer menu and those are all excellent. We both ordered the Kansas City Strip special for our entree. Mine was overcooked and had to be remade but other than that the entrees were also good. The disappointing part of our meal was the overall service and experience. We frequent many fine dining restaurants and our experience did not stack up here. We were celebrating a milestone anniversary and noted that on our reservation, which wasn’t even acknowledged. A manager didn’t come by the table to ensure everything was good even after having to send a steak back that was well over. We were not even offered dessert! Other tables had a dessert cart come by that they could select but we didn’t even get offered any, just presented with our check after we boxed our left-overs. We spent about $300 for a fine dining experience and while the food was good they miss the experience part by a long shot.

    1875 has the absolute best Filet Mignon anywhere! Service is very professional; they are clasy and attentive while also being warm and friendly. I just wish all the patrons would dress in a manner befitting fine dining.

    We stopped in with another couple to the 1875 The Steakhouse at French Lick Resort Hotel, on 01/25/2023. The Ambiance was delightful, the service from both wait staff that served our table (Kristine Lead) was absolutely attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The wine selected for our table was a McManus Cabernet Sauvignon, that was an excellent addition to the meal. Two at our table enjoyed the Half Rack of Lamb - that was prepared to perfection and were scrumptious and plentiful. The other two people ordered steaks (14 ounce RibEye and 8 ounce Filet Mignon) which were an absolute delight to the senses. Having been to the 1875 The Steakhouse previously, we tempered our appetizers, and sides to leave plenty of room for dessert, although, one of our guests enjoyed the Lobster Bisque and a Caesar Salad that were both described as exceptional. The Surprise dish of the evening was the Corn Ragout, which our guest enjoyed so much he asked if he could visit the Chef and ask how the dish was prepared. He was delighted to be assisted back to the kitchen where he had a wonderful experience hearing the efforts that went to prepare his delicious side dish. The Meal ended with a tableside flaming dessert. We all watched as Kristine masterfully prepared tableside two exquisite fiery desserts of Cherries Jubilee and Bananas Foster! Our accurately prepared bill, given our meal, was an absolute value. We all felt pampered, our guests loved the extra attention, and the food was above and beyond! The 1875: The Steakhouse is more than a gourmet restaurant, it's a true gourmet dining experience that your party would truly enjoy and remember as a once in a lifetime occasion.

    Steaks cooked perfectly. Staff was very accommodating on special requests (2 picky eaters). Sat near the piano player so it was noisy but I think other tables would have been ok. Lobster Mac n cheese wasn’t as good as before but everything else was great.

    Sirloin was quite charred and med to med-well. Asked for med-rare. Asparagus was mushy. Personal preference is slightly crispy. Service and ambiance was impeccable. I never return food. I’m sure they would have corrected, but shouldn’t have to do so…

    We enjoyed seeing a person escorted out of the bar by security. Then, there was a man and women we watched as she fed him his entire meal. He was pretty drunk and kept grabbing waiters and waitresses as they walked by him.

    We were promptly sat at 5:45 - the time of our reservation. Our waters were filled and Jaden was there to tell us about the tomato juice and get our rink orders. The special was scallops - we got that, a crab cake and lobster mac n cheese. All were good. Not much lobster on the mac n cheese but mac was good. Very nice visit.

    My husband and I dined here for his birthday. We tend to eat here when celebrating special occasions. The restaurant was very busy and very noisy on this day, a Monday. We believe it was due to a convention at the hotel. We were seated at a small table between two larger tables /groups. It was loud, and not the usually quiet experiences we have had here in the past. It was difficult to hear our server, and I believe it was difficult for him to hear us. We each ordered a cocktail. My husband initially ordered a whisky smash, but the bartender did not know how to make it. He then ordered a whisky sour that he had to send back. It was served in a very large glass with mostly sour mix he thought. He asked for an Old Fashioned, and the food/beverage manager Tom (who is always wonderful) made it for him. It was great! I had a cosmopolitan and it was way too strong. However since my husband had already sent his drink back, I didn’t feel comfortable sending mine back. I diluted it with my water which made it drinkable…but not great and definitely not a cosmo. The food arrived timely and was delicious! Husband had the lamp chops and I had the salmon. We enjoyed the food immensely, but the experience was a bit dampened by the boisterous atmosphere and lackluster drinks. Everyone is allowed to have an off night and I guess the bartender here was having that!

    We were seated right away, and water poured and bread and butter delivered to our table, along with the shot of tomato juice, an 1875 tradition. It’s the best. Our waiter was attentive and food delivered hot and delicious!

    This was our 3rd time at 1875. Usually in the past we’ve had great service and food. This time the food was delicious, but our service was very disappointing. Our server got our order wrong on 3 separate occasions. He was frustrating other servers who were helping him as well. We never received some items we ordered, and he brought out the wrong dessert. Extremely frustrating after spending $300 on dinner for two of us. Will be back for the food, but really hope we have a better experience next time with the staff. 4.2/10 for the service. Food was 9.5/10. Will hesitantly be back in the future.

    Of the four nights at West Baden Hotel 7/10-7/13 we enjoyed 1875 twice. It was that good! Excellent and attentive service from start to finish. Our party of four enjoyed the wedge and Caesar salads, fish and filets. Perfectly prepared and excellent cut of beef. Sides for table were generous and delicious. The charred tomatoes on the wedge…I want the recipe! We look forward to feasting at 1875 again!

    One of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten. Wedge salad needs help… appears some lettuce placed on plate, then a tomato and onion were thrown in, 4 small pieces of bacon, and voila you have their wedge salad. I’ve had better wedges at almost every other restaurant I’ve ordered them in.

    It had been a while since we had been but just as we remembered it was amazing. The service is top notch and the food was incredible. We both got filet mignon that was cooked perfect and delicious. And the sides were a perfect accompaniment for the steaks. And after we had our main course we had to have the crème brûlée which was awesome. The place is very quiet and very lovely. The staff is very professional and very attentive. Can’t wait to come back.

    I had the half Rack of Lamb chops, and they were absolutely delicious! Our wait staff was attentive, skilled, available, and friendly. My wife had an appetizer for her main course- the crab cake, which she raved about. We also had the baked potato that were a meal in themselves, and impeccably prepared. We split a bottle of the house Cabernet Sauvignon, from McManus, which was a great selection. For dessert we split the Bundt cake with Brandy sauce and couldn’t get enough of it.

    The steak and lamb offerings were excellent and prepared precisely as we requested. The creamed spinach with artichokes was also very good. We appreciated their signature Manhattan, but were disappointed with the Old Fashioned as seltzer was used as a finish. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. We much enjoyed the ambiance!

    Very good dinner experience. MiMi was our lead waiter and was attentive and gave good suggestions. I had the oysters Rockefeller, which were good and lobster bisque. For main I had the scallop on garlic mashed potatoes and my wife had the sea bass special. Both were terrific but the sea bass was amazing. Split a Woodford Reserve Bourbon bunt cake and were very please. All good with no issues at all. Very good night!.
