“Best seafood in Greensboro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Every once in a while, you come across a restaurant whose outward physique just so doesn't match the beauty inside. That is so true with this place. The seafood is superb-- creative, cooked to perfection, with wonderful sides. The atmosphere inside is beautiful-- low lighting, modern yet comfortable, really special, and a place where you can have a great conversation across the table without shouting. You would never know from being on the inside of this place that it's housed in a building that was once a fire station! Or that a hair salon occupies the other part of the building. 1618 is one of the places we frequent for special occasions. It is wonderful.

“HOLY CRAP THAT WAS GOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Wow, I have heard about this restaurant favorably, but had never visited until now. Such creative and thoughtful dishes. Each dish had awesome sides and garnishes. The kind of stuff you would see on TV for a fancy chef show. The waiter was very knowledgeable and engaging. He made our overall experience that much better. Couldn't remember his name, but he sure did know his beers!

I ordered the trout...Awesome
Beef tip appetizer= awesome
wasabi mashed potatoes= awesome
Key lime pie & fried brownie= awesome

“The seafood is wonderful”

I worked with furniture market every year and the sales reps that come from all over, always make plans to eat at 1618. The seafood is always delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful.

“Great food with unique presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We were invited by a couple of friends for dinner and the halibut we ordered was awesome, presentation of the food was great as well, great wine menu and service was good. We definitely recommend this place!
PS: The restaurant is always full so try to make a reservation before you go!

“Excellent selection coupled with charming modern atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have recommended this restaurant to several family members and friends that have also equally enjoyed it. It has a wonderfully charming atmosphere with a fantastic drink selection, delicious fresh entree choices, and exceptional staff. 1618 West is very appropriate for dating, spending a special anniversary, or a more formal group dining event. I thoroughly enjoyed the tuna over wasabi mashed potatoes dish. I highly recommend this lovely culinary experience!
