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 really enjoyed it. Nice atmosphere. Beautiful antebellum home. The atmosphere was nice as well. Gabriel was a good waiter and the food was well prepared. Well decorated with paintings from the era and the floral arrangements were nice as well.
I would recommend it.

We had an 8:30 reservation here for NYE. They sat us around 9:30 and we got our food at 10:30 at night after being told they didn’t have a table for us. I had to go get the hostess to bring us water. There was not one decoration or recognization that is was NYE. They were completely under staffed. Thankfully the staff was friendly. I would not recommend this place for a date night, especially a holiday.

Good food, great location. The 2 rooms of the restaurant are part of the historic mansion of Monmouth.

Great lambchop appetizer could be a meal. Steaks were perfect. Wine list was light but enough to get a nice bottle.

My steak was delicious. My husband’s fish was a little dry. I would suggest adding a moscato to the wine list. Wine choices are on the dry side. Overall it was a nice experience. A little pricey but nice.

My friend and I had a wonderful experience at 1818. Our waiter was very kind and attentive. The food was great, the portions a little small and our steak a little over cooked but overall all very worth it!

We were so pleased with our dining experience. It was a wonderful and intimate setting. We shared the dining room with 4 other couples, who were mostly very pleasant and engaging. Our server, Shirley, was very attentive and full of personality. Our food was excellent. We had the filet and the chicken. Each was cooked to,perfection. Our salads were excellent as well. We chose the decadent chocolate dessert. Scrumptious!!! We were very surprised at how reasonable our dining experience was. Our only complaint would be the complaining lady at an adjacent table. One of those folks who complains about everything., rather loudly. Don’t miss out on this experience if you are in Natchez. Reservations are recommended.

The setting is excellent, the history is a wonderful part of the experience. The food was excellent and fairly priced.

The service was gracious, attentive but not hovering.

A great evening all around!

The visit to Monmouth was wonderful. The house and 1818 Restaurant was a wonderful experience. The other guests were very nice and we had some enjoyable conversation. The Ceasar salad I had was the best one I have ever had, I did think the charges were a little high but I thought overall it was a wonderful experience.

Great place - wonderfully historic venue. The service was a bit sloppy though, with wrong food being brought to the table, food and drink dropped on the table and other table's dirty dishes even brought to our table. Still worth going though.

Our dining experience was wonderful. Our server George was excellent, very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He’s worked there for 27 years! The food was excellent as well. I had the special, pan seared red snapper with a lemon bearer blanc sauce, exceptional! Beautiful setting and atmosphere. Love 1818.

Enjoyed a delicious dinner in beautiful surroundings with gracious service. Only suggestion would be to add Roosevelt’s mint julip to the dessert menu. We had to go to the bar to get it. But then if we’d been able to order it from the dessert menu, we would have missed Roosevelt.

A beautiful and delicious meal in a historic Natchez mansion. Service was excellent. We had the steak and the chicken. Both were perfectly cooked. The steak was tender and flavorful, and the chicken with roasted vegetables was wonderful. Will definitely return!

We came to Natchez for the fall pilgrimage on our sisters trip. We found the restaurant at Monmouth and ate there 3 of the 4 nights we were there. The ambience was perfect, the food was excellent, and Roosevelt, the bartender, was the best ever!! Can’t wait to return!!

Excellent meal in a quiet and beautiful setting. Fish entrees were delicious, and the filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked with a superb Demi-glacé. We only sampled one dessert, bread pudding, but it was delicious as well.

Location, grounds, and house are a must see in Natchez. Service and atmosphere of restaurant is excellent, however food wasn’t as good as I would have expected. Fish of the day was Snapper which was tough, chewy and very “ fishy tasting” green fried tomatoes were ok but not up too expectations.
