Great choice if you are looking for great service, elegance and good food! I went to see the facilities before i booked a business dinner. While walking around met with the rest chef who personally assist me making the dinner reservation and gave me his business card in case we needed further assistance. I would recommend 100%.

Starting out with Tuna Tatare (even with the quail egg!) and Trio of crudo. Second course was a peekoe crab meat risotto, mains were a pan seared local... More

The food is exquisite , service is perfectly timed and the dishes are presented just elegantly . All the service staff is knowledgable about the dishes and can answer any questions . The atmosphere is delightful and not "snobbish" at all. An elegant place for a group or romantic for a couple. I am definitely going back. Thank you Neal... More

Having eaten around the world at some of the finest Michelin rated restaurants, 1919 matches then for food and service and beats them for value.

Didn't like it this time around - had dinner there on July, 2nd. This was 5th visit since it opened and will probably be the last. Wagyu Beef Duo was way too salty and tough, not how I remember it. Crudo Trio was on the salty side as well. At this price point you cannot cut corners, you have to... More

Our group had an event at the restaurant. The food and drinks were spectacular. The service was second to none. VERY attentive and definitely well trained. The restaurant was VERY pricey, but made for a great private event!
