Restaurant 1833

Restaurant 1833 Review

Housed in the historic Stokes Adobe, built in 1833, this über-popular restaurant and bar showcases the region's colorful history and local bounty in one of the most unusual settings anywhere. The two-story structure, a national heritage site, was once the home of the mayor of Monterey. Today it includes seven distinct dining rooms; each honors an era and characters from the adobe's storied past. Sit in a leather booth on the Founder's Balcony for a bird's-eye view of the rocking bar scene below, or outdoors by the fire pits in the courtyard, near giant oak, redwood, palm, and magnolia trees. The casual menu changes daily and centers around seasonal local ingredients. Regular stars include bacon-cheddar biscuits with maple-chili butter and soy-glazed quail, pan-roasted mahi mahi, and bacon-wrapped pork loin. The cocktail menu pays tribute to the adobe's 1840s-era apothecary business with four categories: Pain Killers, Stress Relievers, Elixers, and Aphrodisiacs, which, along with the extensive wine list, fuel a lively atmosphere indoors and out, especially on weekend nights.
