The service was outstanding. Give Nicolle a raise! We had a dinner full of appetizers because we wanted to try everything.

In September 2015 I hosted international guests from Japan at this restaurant. All three of us have eaten amazing food all over the world. Our experience of the September 2015 menu rivaled any one of the five star restaurants and service we experienced elsewhere. In November 2016 I hosted family members at this restaurant. Unfortunately, I live out of state... More

This converted house makes an interesting quirky setting for this restaurant. It's a little dark in places but adds atmosphere. There's lots of different styles of rooms for dining or drinking. The music was good, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of food and cocktails. So down to the food, we had the sprouts and oh my god they... More

We ate here Friday night and had an amazing time. When I came to write my review, I couldn't help but notice a lot of recent negative reviews. Reading a bit more I became a bit frustrated by many of them, as the ratings seem based on stuff that just plain doesn't make a lot of sense if you are... More

We were in for an early dinner and the fires had ,on this cold night , not heated the place up to a comfortable level. The menu was limited . The table shared a 6 starters and they were well prepared and tasty.... More

This was our second visit to 1833. Our first meal there a year ago was so good we wanted to try it again. It did not disappoint. We started out in the bar with cocktails that were crafted expertly. They had unique drinks on the menu that were wonderful. We sat in the Sunroom for dinner. The place was busy... More

The menu in this restaurant offers limited choices and the food description are very weird requiring extensive translation by the helpful staff. However, the food itself was of a high standard. We started with halibut croquets which whilst nice were not special. The main course of smoked salmon was excellent as was the ravioli. Overall it was quite expensive, especially... More
