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.

Incredibly beautiful setting located inside this antebellum home. Roosevelt served us delicious mint juleps in the bar before dinner. Wonderful food and service from Shirley. Great steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Reasonably priced wines and wonderful atmosphere. Woukd definitely return.

Bathroom was very dirty which always raises a flag with me. Food was mediocre at best. Wine was poured into a very dusty glass which I have no idea how long it had been sitting on the table. I did not drink it. There was only one server for a large room. Steaks were totally over done and the waitress never came by to check. (The mashed potatoes were delicious!). The lollipop lamb chops were nothing but fat and poorly cooked and presented. All in all, it was a terrible experience. I cannot understand how our B&B owner recommended it. Never again..... They did comp us for the steak, but at that point, I didn’t much care. We left very hungry.....I do not recommend at all.

We dined at 1818 For a special occasion. First we had drinks in the study and then proceeded to the dining room. The location is a lovely setting for and intimate dinner. George, our server, gave us the exact right amount of attention: everything on time, but no hovering. We loved the food. I’d call it southern fancy. We felt the wine list was good and prices reasonable.

We stayed at the inn and dined here for our anniversary. It was a beautiful place and the service was great just busy. The food was just average. My husband had the steak and it was a little over cooked. You are not paying $$$ for the food in this situation it is all about the experience and setting.

We stayed at this fantastic plantation and had a fabulous dinner at their dining room. Food and service were perfect. We had gumbo and fried green tomatoes. Both were perfect. My husband said his steak was tender and flavorful. My sea bass was perfect in a light lemon butter sauce.

The atmosphere is always pleasant at Restaurant 1818. My wife and I occasioned to celebrate Valentine's weekend. Our food was excellent regarding taste, portions and for the most part, price. We understand regarding price, it must be taken into consideration this is an upscale restaurant. This is our favorite place in Natchez to dine for special occasions.

Loved Cortez! He was very cute, charming, funny and attentive. The food was excellent and who ever did the interior design was spot on. Like a Ralph Lauren plantation. The only place for improvement would be to get the drinks to the table faster. I think they have to go downstairs to get the cocktails. Not a big delay, but they could have made more money on us if cocktail service had been faster. Overall, we had a 5 star experience.

Another outstanding meal to close out an outstanding stay at Monmouth. Our waiter, Mr. George, could not have been more professional and yet personable. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and valued. The food was delicious, served in a very timely manner, and in portions generous enough to ensure all went away full. Overall just a great experience which resonated perfectly with our entire stay at Monmouth. We'll be back for sure.

We were SO pleasantly surprised by Restaurant 1818! It was truly one of the best dining experiences we've had in a while and we eat out a LOT!! The food was perfectly prepared and delicious ~ BEST lamb chops ever! I also want to give special kudos to Miss Shirley! What a wonder!! Initially, we were a tiny bit put off because she insisted that we place our entire order at once. We typically do NOT do this because restaurants never seem to get the timing right (usually putting my entree on the table when I'm still eating my appetizer and I HATE that!!). Can I tell you, I've never had a meal so wonderfully delivered! We also started noticing that Shirley does EVERYTHING ~ from the taking of orders to bussing the tables and changing linens between guests and did it all with a genuine smile! We just loved her! Thank you Shirley and kitchen staff for making this a very special evening!

It was a special anniversary and I had emailed ahead. It seemed, despite my reservation online they had no record of the booking. We were sat in the corner of an almost empty restaurant- not a great position. So initial impression was disappointing. However, the food and service was exceptional, and rescued what was a poor start. That said, I had requested a special event to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, but that request did not get through, and thus it was a really good meal but not truly special.
