This is a must if you are a foodie visiting Monterey. A stunning historic building oozing character with several different dining rooms to choose from including a beautiful garden with fire-pits for cooler evenings. Service is superb and the menu has many amazing dishes to choose from. Make sure you order an Absinthe to finish your evening. If you are... More

We stopped by on our anniversary to explore the hand crafted cocktail menu we had read about. We were not disappointed. Many seating areas and we were lucky to be outside around one of the fire pits. Truly a wonderful experience.

We visited for a special occasion, the service was superb and the staff friendly and entertaining. We were treated as if we were the only diners in the restaurant, a big thank you to John and Jake for being so attentive and the great service. The cocktails are great and the decor and setting is reminiscent of Julie's in Notting... More

1833 is simply a great restaurant! The dishes are unique and inventive, the presentation is fabulous, the ingredients are ridiculously fresh and of high quality, and the food is simply delicious. The ambience is very inviting, the decor is lovely, appropriate for a special occasion, and the service is excellent too. Though we were seated indoors, there's beautiful patio dining... More

Not sure why so many people diss this spot. It's lovely and fresh! Great separate rooms to choose from. Bar, library , outside courtyard and the more formal dinning rooms. Great music - good food- great wine and cocktails- great service and so so pretty. No- it's not cheap but I found t so far the best place I've gone... More

Amazing food and beautiful dining inside and outside in this attractive space. Did not have a reservation yet they still got us in fairly quickly. Waitress almost ruined the whole experience as she was more interested in displaying her knowledge of the menu rather than serving; got our appetizer at the end of the meal as if that was ok...

Last-minute booking for anniversary meal, and the food, service and setting couldn't have been better. Great atmosphere and the music was an eclectic but great mix to go with a lively evening. Would definitely recommend and revisit.

At first this looked like a great choice but the apparently simple menu led us up the proverbial garden path and the wine list was prentious

As tourists from London UK, we'd loved this restaurant on our first visit in 2014 for its quiet sophistication and fabulous fresh produce. Absolutely brilliant. We recommended it to many friends. Apparently it's changed hands. Two years later on return tonight, we found it run by adolescents for adolescents. Lighting so dark you can't read the menu. Seats so low... More

White visiting a wine bar in Sunnyvale, the waitress recommended coming here and having a cocktail. I had the negroni that won the San Francisco negroni competition. It was fabulous. There is an inside bar and outside seating with firepits.
