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.

This is the quintessential "romantic" setting -- floor to ceiling windows, second floor location overlooking the quaint downtown shopping district of Bethlehem, PA. and great sunsets. Oh yeah, the food lives up to the reputation of a 4 star establishment. Good menu assortment and the wine list is pretty good for a hotel. Valet parking available (which I recommend because... More

I had a small wedding of about 50 in the Terrace Room and the whole ambiance was classic and timeless. The palladium windows are so beautiful and the staff was attentive to my every request and need.

I took a couple young ladies from Lehigh University there for a celebratory meal after they both had received special awards. Even though we had no reservation, we were accommodated. Each of us had a different entree and were very pleased not only with the quality of the food, but also with the superb service. These young ladies are very... More

My wife ordered a medium-rare 8oz filet with mushrooms and I ordered the baked salmon. Both were done to perfection and served with delicious mashed potatoes and sautéed kale. One minor comment - the kale had a great taste but was a little chewy. Otherwise the meal was thoroughly enjoyable. We both enjoyed a nice glass of Malbec with our... More

We enjoyed a very friendly staff who welcomes us. Our waitor Bob always creates a marvelous welcome. I highly recommend eating here for the atmosphere and gifted pianist Paul Brazzo. The meal choices vary from fine foods to casual dining choices.

The ambiance and setting truly offer a breathtaking place to join groups of family and friends for occasions. Live piano music by Paul Brazzo most Saturday evenings relaxes and shares beautiful atmospheric sound while we converse and dine with family and old friends. I often schedule social gatherings like brunch as well and request Bob, our favorite waiter. Brunches are... More

Is a staple restaurant for me in Bethlehem, PA in a wonderful hotel of historical significance. The cuisine is vast, refined, but not overwhelming with a very solid wine list. The service was right on and a great atmosphere with lots of window exposure to the town below. This is just simply a solid stop for those who prefer a... More
