A sickness pervades the restaurant business and Restaurant 1833 is a golden example of what not to do. The sickness of which I refer to is, a restaurant dictating to the customer what he can and cannot do. Our 6:00 reservation couldn't be honored (no...More

We went here for our ten year anniversary dinner. We let the person on the phone no that when we made our reservation. She said she would place us in a special conservatory room. That sounded great on the phone, but it really didn't amount...More

Cool, lounge vibe with old school charm. Awesome but loud music. Delicious food - mainly comfort food and good wine selection.

Other than the incompetent hostess, this place is the first of a real find. Skip all the other places that offer the standard pasta fares and supposedly fresh fish. This place is worthy of James Beard. It's not Carmel and that's a good thing. The...More

A very friendly and comfortable bar offering creative drinks greets you. Menu selections are varied, with tasty small plates available for openers. Mains and portions better than average. Table service was a bit off, slow throughout dinner with wine ordered mid-meal delivered just before dessert.

We honestly do not know what its history has been. We just know that before this incarnation it had another name which we can pul from the memory bank and before that we can't say.

It depends on the month and size of your group. We had like over 24 + people. And, this was around tourist season in February. Options of seating time was provided to us after we called a day ahead. Call and plan ahead... More
