Sometimes, I forget just how good this reataurant really is - it remains fresh, creative, and interesting - something I'm reminded of every time I visit. The credit for this goes to Executive Chef George Neal and his excellent staff. And the service remains topnotch, especially in the bar area, where Melissa and her compatriots are excellent. They just introduced... More

Inventive chef with really unique menu options. Excellent food, terrific wine choices and good overall service. A bit noisy because of the décor and open ceiling (nothing to soften the sound) very eclectic atmosphere and very enjoyable.

A group of our business associates took a foreign vendors to dinner. Exceptional meal creatively presented. Our server, Damian, was top notch. If you're entertaining customers, GO THERE!

This is a very good place to eat. Nice and quiet. The customer service is excellent. The drinks are real drinks. The food is very good. Good place for anniversaries, date night and casual dinning with friends.

I've been to many restaurants good, better, best, but 1618 is extraordinary. On a recommendation of a customer, we took a group to dine. The waitstaff, location and personality of 1618 is a great supporting cast to the menu and it's diversity. I had the crispy chicken stuffed with macaroni and cheese, bourbon glazed over a buttermilk chive biscuit with... More

Wow! This rather hidden place is a dream come true for us. Elegant menu, great service, nice atmosphere, fantastic wine list if you need it and a $12 corkage fee. What could be bad! We were treated to a complimentary calamari app that let us know we were in for something special. Our tuna and scallop entrees were beautifully presented... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this place tucked off of Friendly Ave after receiving a gift certificate to 1618. Creative and eclectic menu, especially in Greensboro, with positively delicious entrees and an upscale yet casual atmosphere. Prices are what you'd expect for a nice dinner, and absolutely worth it.

We made our first visit as an anniversary dinner. Amazing food and drinks. Reservations are a must. Excellent selection of entrees and waiter was very knowledgeable.
