We enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and the food. So what could be wrong....we felt like the prices were a bit excessive...for instance wine mark ups were about triple for bottles and a glass of Savignon Blanc from Bernardus was $13 and I just had bought a bottle of the same wine at Costco for $11... That's not a good start... More

the cost of 1833 is significantly higher than most other local favorites in Monterey, but without a doubt this is the best food for your money in Monterey. Sit inside or Outside around the fire and enjoy excellently prepared dishes to anyones taste. Best place for a romantic dinner in Monterey.

We had heard very good things about 1833--enough to want to celebrate a birthday--two birthdays in fact. Our visit was preceded by many "must go's." We did. We were not very impressed. Food was ok, but the service was incredibly slow...lighting required a flashlight to see the menu and the loud sounds of music permeated the air, even upstairs in... More

Although a bit challenging to find, this place is "chick California" with its outside dining by fire pits, varied menu, and very pleasant staff. Service was top notch and no wait time for our party. Absinthe cart something to behold!

I've heard so much about how wonderful this place is so my expectations were pretty high. Sadly, 3 friends and I stopped by on a Saturday evening. It wasn't very crowded so we sat outside at one of the firepits (which are gorgeous) waited a bit, nobody came to wait on us so we decided to go inside. Hostess was... More

Was there in late December. The food experience has gotten even better. The drinks are as good as I remember. Very nice private area upstairs. Even got engaged, and I don't think anyone noticed. Very nice! Want to get back and try the truffle chicken...

!833 has great food and wonderful flavors that are unique to each dish. We have enjoyed several visits to this restaurant and always pleased. HOWEVER, our visit on December 6 was frustrating as our server was very slow getting food to us. Our server seemed anxious to take our order but once he had it, things were terribly slow. We...

Lively bar with great drinks and a fun crowd. Drinks are not cheap, but they are delicious! Inside and outside seating, great atmosphere. Restaurant looked good, but we only went for drinks.

It was the best of bites; it was the worst of bites. My husband's roasted shrimp on a bed of Cajun grits (once they actually added the shrimp that had been left out due to miscommunication in the kitchen) was my husband's favorite dish of our four day stay in Monterey. My chestnut soup was also lovely. We then waited... More
