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 had an excellent time at the 1818. You must go early to look at the grounds and gardens. A very unique place. Straight out of one of the gardening magazines.

    We ate here 9 years ago for our first anniversary, so we returned to celebrate our 10th last night. We were seated immediately and George took wonderful care of us all night long. I has the lamb lollipops as an appetizer and the pork chop dinner. Both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. My wife had the gumbo and the filet. The gumbo was a tad bland (although we are from New Orleans so are used to spice and bold flavor in our gumbo), but a little hot sauce and pepper helped quite a bit. The steak was a perfect medium rare. Her favorite part of the meal, though, was the garlic mashed potatoes. We were seated near another couple from New Orleans (celebrating 47 years together) and a couple from the UK (celebrating 30 years) who were leaving for New Orleans the next day. We had a great time chatting with our fellow guests and, in fact, moved to the table with the couple from the UK for after dinner drinks. About halfway through the meal, the mayor of Natchez arrived and made his rounds greeting everyone. He then took a seat at the piano in the foyer and played and sang for the rest of the night. The owner poured champagne for everyone and we all hung around for probably an extra hour after dinner. In short, the food was great and the experience was even better! We will be back!

    What a beautiful place to have a nice dinner. Dai was our server and we’ve had him before. Very helpful, friendly, and attentive. I had the redfish special, wife had pork chops. Both cooked perfectly and tasted great. My starter shrimp cocktail was wonderful. 5 big ones in a spicy sauce. Next time, we’ll save room for dessert.. Thank you for a wonderful evening of dining.

    I can’t say enough good things about our Christmas Eve Dinner at Restaurant 1818. We were met at the door by a very gracious host. We chose our table and enjoyed our beautiful surroundings. Our waitress was the absolute BEST!!! She took excellent care of us. The food was delicious!!!! We will definitely make the hour long drive again!!!!

    As we arrived the house is excellent and the room was nice. That’s where the experience went down. The waitress was not a fine dine waitress. The food was average for the cost. One starter, two main and one desert $140. For that cost I was expecting a lot better overall. Will not be back

THE WAITER COULD HAVE BEEN FROM THE BEST OF NEW ORLEANS HIGH-END RESTAURANTS. THE DINING ROOMS WERE ELEGANT. THANK YOU, MONMOUTH, FOR A MEMORABLE HOLIDAY DINNER.

    We were really looking forward to our meal at Monmouth but what a disappointment. We arrived and had to hunt around for someone to seat us before we located the only waiter chatting away with his mates in the kitchen. When he finally came out, his attitude was very casual and not in keeping with a fine dining restaurant. The tablecloth was wrinkled and worn. We ordered an appetiser (lamb lollipops) and main (duck) to share. Our waiter slopped water all over the place when he poured. The lamb was tasty but our plates were not cleared before the main arrived. The waiter explained “he forgot” to clear our places. There were only 2 other occupied tables. The duck appeared well cooked but not hot so we sent it back. It returned having been heated up and our waiter said that happened a lot with the duck! Although the duck was tasty, the sauce it was covered in was sickly sweet. For dessert, we ordered a slice of pecan pie which had a soggy crust and was simply not very good. We have been travelling for the last two weeks and this was the most expensive yet worst dining experience we have had.

    There were fruit flies at our table, but I did see the restaurant was trying to rectify that, as there was a fruit fly catcher on the mantle. From experience, I know that is very difficult to do.

    Had misfortune of having what appeared to be some sort of food critic sitting at a table next to us by herself - she was demanding and obnoxious to staff and stared straight at us the entire time we were there - made for a creepy meal - not the restaurants fault other than perhaps where she was seated - we left before the entree arrived

    The dining area is small but it is in a Antebellum home. The was good but not exceptional. The service was good and we were the last table for lunch on Mothers day. The one disappointment for me was my dessert. I ordered the ice cream with praline sauce, but I could not taste much praline and it had too much whip cream for my taste. My wife's peach cobbler was very good. You can tour the gardens which are beautiful and peaceful.
