It has been several years since my last visit but not much has changed. The menu is small but continues to offer an eclectic selection of tastes that are well prepared. The scallops with lobster polenta, champagne broth and bacon jam was delightful. The scallops...More

Wow, I am so amazed by the wonderful food, cocktails, and service we received at 1861. The wings, scallops, and lamb burger are a must try when visiting! Can't wait to return to this establishment.
