If presentation ranked superior to taste we would highly recommend this venue, but unfortunately, looks can be deceiving. For a restaurant with such a high overall rating and whose specialty is seafood (or at least that's what their name says) it didn't deliver. All of our seafood entrees were overcooked (Mahi, Flounder and Grouper). The service was good, but didm;t... More

Amazing menu, everything I've tried has been fantastic. Service is also great - last time we went, a rowdy group sat next to us (which isn't a big deal) but, without saying a word, our server gave us free dessert as an apology. Without a doubt my favorite restaurant in Greensboro.

Totally unexpected gem in Greensboro! I was in town for two weeks for a work trip and ate here with a few colleagues. It came highly recommended by some locals at the office and we were not disappointed. Food was amazing and the presentation was superb - I really enjoyed the attention to detail. The service was also impeccable. I... More

Always a good choice, it's a bit pricey but the food is outstanding! It's set in an old firehouse and has a wonderful atmosphere but it can get extremely busy and a bit too crowded.

so often when food is artfully presented, the quality is mediocre. Not so at 1618! The dishes are all delicious and creative and food quality is very high. Bar serves terrific cocktails and service is well above average for Greenstown. My only complaint is that after reading the description of a dish, you still have no clue what you are... More

1618 West is the finest seafood restaurant in Greensboro. Fresh ingredients and imaginative presentation are their hallmarks. The restaurant is in part of an old fire station which has been artfully transformed into the restaurant with a large opaque glass window making up nearly all of one wall. The bar area is very lively and a nice place to have... More

At their new location on Elm we recently had a business lunch with a group of 7. Salad was excellent with tuna that melted in my mouth. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was very good. The location is a long thin space that can seat quite a few, but you may want to check with them if bringing a larger... More

I live in Greensboro and have eaten here 10+ times. Service is always spot on and the food is excellent. Its often crowded, even during the week. I would recommend making a reservation but I often find myself just eating at the bar. Same food and quick drink service. There lunch menu is great as well. Try out the brisket... More

Best Restaurant in the area by far! Great menu with a wonderful presentation and wait staff. If you like Tuna be prepared to get hooked on Chef George's Tuna with Wasabi mashed potatoes.
