My husband and I love this restaurant! We entertain a lot of people from Europe and 1808 is our "go to spot". We receive great reviews from our friends. The only reason I did not give 1808 5 stars is that during their lunch they do not provide bread with any entrees! It's always nice to have bread with a... More

My husband and I had dinner here, he a delicious perfectly cut/cooked steak and I had mushroom ravioli, both were absolutely delicious, you could tell the white wine sauce on my pasta was freshly made and not out of a jar, somewhat dark in the restaurant but I like that romantic atmosphere, would highly recommend!

We've spent a lot of time in and around Delaware since 2006 - our eldest chose OWU for her college studies. While many restaurants - great, good, and not so good- have come and gone in that time, the 1808 Bistro is one that just stands out, and has, so far, stood the test of time. While it does not...

There are several nice places to eat in Delaware; however, 1808 Bistro is one of the best! It is located just off the main drag in a restored area of downtown. The food and service are top quality, and they have a chef who knows how to prepare food! Some of the entrees are a bit pricey; however, the menu... More

It is nice to have a for real chef creating master pieces! Great staff and fun atmosphere. Tiny complaint...some of their seats are like a booth, but they sink down and are pretty uncomfortable. Ask for a chair if you have a bad back.

Located in a restored area of downtown. The food and service are top quality. I also had an occasion to ask the owner to prepare a special shrimp dish to take to my wife in the hospital at that time. Needless to say she was delighted!

My wife an I have eaten at this resturant on several occasions. The food and service is always very good. The atmosphere is old pub style with a bar/eating area and a seperate dining area away from the noise of the bar. There is an additional dining area for overflow or larger groups. The pricing is higher than some, but... More
