We brought a business group to Restaurant 1833 and some had a good experience and some did not. It began for for me when I spotted the Charred Octopus on the web site menu and spent the day looking forward to it. When we got to the restaurant, our server said that the web site was out of date and... More

I've lived in Monterey two times for work, and on both occasions was excited about the proximity to the water, the excellent pinot noirs from the Carmel Valley, biking in Carmel Valley and Pebble Beach, great runs from the water to the mountains, but never ever the food. Monterey Bay is the epitome of a tourism trap. Bubba Gump Shrimp,... More

If it is one of those nice evenings in Monterey you can't beat the outdoor seating for cocktails and snacks. They have an excellent bar and some unique drinks. If the evening has a chill they do have a number of fire pits going to help take the edge off the cool evening. If you like tequila give the Penicillin... More

Perhaps it was an off night, but our service was not good at all and it seems that we were not the only ones experiencing poor service that night. The table behind us (who had the same server) wanted to speak with the manager because it had taken so long to get their food. Personally, I would not go back.

Great atmosphere, food crafted cocktails in a beautiful setting wit perfect service. if you are not up for a splurge try Happy hour for truffled popcorn and a perfect cocktail. Their Sunday chicken dinners are memorable and their Cheddar bacon biscuits are the best ever. It is my absolute favorite special occasion splurge

Came here for a nice dinner with the husband. There's a very unique old atmosphere with great drinks! Our dinner was a bit pricey and we were still hungry afterwards but the cheddar biscuits are worth it! Next time I would come back for the Sunday Chicken Dinner which looked amazing and worth the price!

Historical building.Unique bar scene. Efficient and friendly staff. Magnificent wine list. Approachable menu. Both times I have dined here are in the top 10 during my life. The menu is not very large, but wonderful things can be found in small packages. Every dish ordered by the six of us was spectacular. The truffle chicken is worth the hour wait.... More

I had dinner at 1833 for the first time over the weekend. The restaurant was completely booked but the staff let us sit at a table that was reserved for later that evening. The first thing that impressed me was the staff. Everyone was professional and made us feel welcome. The drinks are amazing (I recommend the Shiner) and there... More

I brought a group of 23 to this restaurant for a special evening. Reservations made well in advance, menu selected, wine selected - everything possible from my end to make the event memorable. Complimentary appetizers failed to appear. Wine not selected by me (added by a guest when I strictly prohibited it was added to my bill. I selected from... More
