We have been to some amazing restaurants in the world; but, 1833 is not one of those who warrant a rating higher than a two star. The building is an amazing historic adobe, grounds are pretty nice as you approach and then you walk into an all but black interior with some color accent here and there. We were seated... More

All encompassing dining experience as the decor, layout, and food are all top quality. A very memorable meal and experience.

Restaurant 1833 is off the beaten path from the rest of the seafood/chowder/steak places that Monterey has to offer. We found this place by asking some locals for a non-touristy recommendation and we're glad we stumbled upon it. If you're a foodie and into craft cocktails, this is your place. The atmosphere is also very neat considering that the building... More

The food was excellent, but the service was awkward. We made reservations to go to Restaurant 1833 for my 30th birthday. When we arrived, the hostess was very cold and it instantly made us a bit uncomfortable. When she took us to our table, seeing that it was very dark and in an awkward corner, we asked if we could...

The menu was rather quirky with unusual flavour combinations. We were pleasantly surprised with our food - delicious, attractive and "European" proportions, A fun evening.

Wondeful place with great food. Service was a bit off, as others mentioned. But besides that, the place has many private nooks, cozy atmosphere and worth checking out.

We went this past Friday expecting a quality dining experience with Jason Franey's new menu....and were not disappointed. We've been going to 'Stokes Adobe' since 1968 in all its past lives....The building dates to 1833---hence the current name. I'll get the negatives out of the way----the music should NEVER EVER be louder than the conversations going on...even after asking for... More

We had dined at 1833 several times before, and it was one of our favorite Monterey restaurants – so we were excited to try the new menu and went for dinner about a week after they introduced the changes. Bottom line: while our meal was good, there was nothing we found amazing about it, and in fact, we probably preferred... More

We had been to 1833 a couple of years ago and had a fairly good experience, but had heard they had a new chef and wanted to see if it had improved. The atmosphere/location is very quaint and inviting so that helps contribute to the overall experience, however, it was still disappointing. First, the menu on-line is not the menu... More

We arrived at 6:20pm and were immediately seated. Ordered drinks right away, and it took about 10-15 min for drinks. Ordered appetizer and mains. Had the artichoke purée appetizer, which was good. Hamachi, pork ribs, beef ribs and burger were all excellent. Waited 20 minutes for the hazelnut tart and strawberry shortcake dessert. Both were excellent. We were finally finished... More
