We stopped at 1833 for a nightcap after a night out in Monterey while on holiday, having been drawn in by what seemed a pleasant ambience and heated garden. However part of the outside seating area was given over to a private party we were treated to a performance from the "brat crowd" mentioned in previous reviews, in the form... More

"Loulou's Griddle in the Middle" is currently TripAdvisor's #1 for Monterey. And this fantastic restaurant is.... #54. Huh????? Finding top-flight, fine-dining restaurants in Monterey turns out to not be quite as easy as you might expect. Restaurant 1833 is among the best. I know experiences can differ, but something's wrong if any of those grungy, interchangeable wharf dives can get... More

Bring your wallet and try this restaurant; you will not be disappointed. We had a Tomato Salad, Sea Bass and Ling Cod. Every thing was fresh, prepared to perfection. One of the best meals we have had, we will be returning.

We’ve eaten here twice in the past six weeks and find it to be an excellent option in an area full of great restaurants. The restaurant is located in downtown Monterey, in an old adobe mansion. They have a gorgeous bar area, complete with comfortable couches indoors, as well as fire pits outside. FYI you can order anything on the... More

I thought this place was great. The food was just okay. The cheddar bacon biscuits were very good. I would come back because of the location. Love the building and fire pits outside. Don't expect a knock out for food.

Restaurant 1833 has a storied past and they have created a wonderful menu and atmosphere to play up this history. Reminiscent of Apotheke bar in NYC, Restaurant 1833 has a lush drink menu with potions of all sorts. The Shiner is a highlight from the cocktail menu. We had drinks in the library room on the first floor near the... More

The restaurant is very special, and a great place for a small group. We were in a private dining room with a big round table and a fireplace. It was a wonderful experience with great service and wonderful food. Pricing was fair and the experience amazing.

Restaurant 1833 has been my go to restaurant when traveling through monterey for several years. I could take my wife, a client, or friend and they were always impressed with the food, setting and service. Didn't matter if it was the crush of car week or a quiet off-peak night, 1833 always delivered... but lately not so much. May be... More

Finally Monterey has a restaurant that has food as memorable as the scenery. Seriously, I can't get the cheddar-bacon biscuits out of my head. I keep thinking about the hot chrunch of the moist flavorful treat... 1833 is the whole package, from the moment you walk up to the front door past the fire pits and comfortable seating to the...

Great building and a fine meal. 1833 is located in an historic adobe in Monterey - the library is a great place to lounge and the bar and outside seating are a rare treat. We tried the following: Deviled eggs - ok not the best I ever had Halibut - sensational Biscuits - very nice Dessert - right on Cocktails... More
