Description: It is the desire of 1741 on the Terrace to engage you and invite you. Try something new or revisit something familiar but above all -- enjoy. Relax in the ambiance of the room – the beautiful Moravian tile floor and soaring Palladian windows. Admire the charming downtown of Bethlehem with buildings and history dating back to the day in 1741 when the town itself was founded.The wine list - developed to inspire not to impress – is filled with wines from around the world, but with a focus on American wines. Frequent diners at finer restaurants will be impressed with the selection of wines available, but the list has been crafted to make the choices easy for a novice as well. Our sommelier is available to aid wine selection or custom pairings for any menu items upon request.

Although I did NOT stay at the Hotel Bethlehem, I DID eat at 1741 on the Terrace. I believe that this dining venue is excellent, & I hope to eat here again. I dined here on December 22nd, & I thank the staff team of Hotel Bethlehem for it's gracious & cordial service. -Ethan Lynch

I’m perplexed by the negativity of some recent reviews here. My wife and I dined at 1741 last weekend and had a thoroughly wonderful experience. Everyone around us seemed to be having a similar good time. After checking in at the Hotel Bethlehem, I inquired about reservations. “Nothing until 8:30,” I was told. Around 7PM, we headed downstairs to grab... More

We had Christmas dinner at this restaurant and it was absolutely terrible! The food was not edible, the staff was miserable and the service was deplorable. We will never return, dinner for 14, an absolutely terrible experience.

Dear Kathy B, We apologize to your family for our poor performance on Christmas Night. We clearly underestimated the staffing required to satisfy the unexpectedly large dinner demand that evening compared to prior years. In an attempt to allow some of our staff the opportunity to spend Christmas night with their families, we failed to restrict our reservation levels in... More

Every December my husband and I treat ourselves to a dinner at the 1741 On The Terrace at the Hotel Bethlehem the week of Christmas. The hotel and restaurant are beautifully decorated and the food and service at 1741 on the Terrace is exceptional. What a wonderful way to enjoy the holiday season.

We have been traveling to Bethlehem during the holidays to meet with friends for four years and this year we looked forward to eating on the Terrace at the Historic Bethlehem Hotel. With reservations obtained several months previously and a request for a window seat secured, we arrived to a staff that was unsure first as to our reservations, and... More

We are from New York, and I can honestly say that this one of the finest restaurants we have ever dined in. We have been coming to the Bethlehem hotel for over 12 years now every Thanksgiving and having dinner here is one of the highlighs of our trip every year. Succulent, delicious, creative AND impeccable service! Plus everyone is... More

We visited less than a week ago and were blown away! It felt like we were transported back to the 30's or 40's, with beautiful, white table-cloth ambience, black tie waiters and light jazz in the background. It was decorated for Christmas at the time as well, which only added to the opulent historic atmosphere. I definitely would recommend stopping... More

Had another great meal here last evening for my birthday, this is one of our go-to places for special occasions. We had a dozen oysters, lobster bisque - both excellent. Our dinners were the strip steak and pan seared trout - again, excellent. Portions are good and the side veggies are prepared perfectly. They have great seasonal specials and a... More
