We had dinner outside and had a lovely view of the lake. We had seafood chowder, which was so good, Scallops with corn risotto, delicious, and the lollipop pork chop, also delicious. Just as we finished our dinner, we took on a beautiful sunset over the lake. This was truly a memorable experience.

We concluded a fantastic anniversary trip by dining at 1833 and it was a wonderful way to end the vacation. Grace was a fantastic guide not only through a wonderful number of items on the menu but also the abundant wine offerings in the region. We cannot wait to return!

Love the Aurora Inn and the idea of the 1833 Kitchen and Bar. We've eaten there several times now and it seems to consistently fall just short. Our waiter was EXCELLENT as was the ambiance, the social distance and covid precautions.

The food however was simply just okay. We ordered soup and made sure to ask for it extra hot (temperature) and our waiter reassured us that it will ABSOLUTELY be hot!
When it came it was barely warm. Sent back and when returned it was still not much better. The waiter and hostess were excellent and apologetic. In fact so much so that they ultimately removed it from our bill without us even asking. Absolutely the RIGHT thing to do and the courteous thing to do.

The burrata salad was less than and my scallops which I have had there a few times were in a mush of a risotto that had a strange flavor.

Since it was COVID no breakfasts were being served weekdays. The options were also less than unappealing and honestly surprising for a luxury venue. A fruit salad the size of a coleslaw that typically comes with a burger was $3. The melon was borderline, the quiche not warm and the presentation just surprising for the Inns of Aurora.

We will be back because we love Aurora and hope that 1833 will be up on their game.

From the moment we w entered the service was first class — inviting — and very knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Unfortunately that’s where the 5 stars ended for me.
The appetizers were so so ... the scallops were salty with a side of orzo .... the desserts were good. Homemade ice creams are delicious.

You go there for the location and view of the lake, and whoever runs the kitchen seems to know that. Very friendly staff and good service, but the food leaves a lot to be desired. Expect bland dishes, small portions, and ingredients that came from the frozen food section. Also, the beer menu is exactly three beers long.

It was our first time at 1833. The restaurant is as charming as the Inn with wonderful ambience overlooking the lake. Dinner was excellent as was the service. We enjoyed the scallops over risotto and the pasta bolognese. Surely a must when you are in Aurora.

I went for a brunch with three of my friends to relive our Aurora days. The staff at the restaurant were all very accommodating and friendly. We ate outside, and the view was beautiful. The tables were spaced apart appropriately. I ordered the burrata salad and the crab cakes benedict and they were perfect. I would love to be able to return some day. Highly recommend!

Took our granddaughter this time and she loved the food and experience. Although the entire experience was great, including the food and service, I think that prices for some items are a bit high.

PEI Oyster appetizer special and heirloom tomato salads were outstanding. Both the scallop and salmon entrees were perfectly prepared and complimented. Wine list is quite extensive, although I found it somewhat over-priced. Always enjoy our special occasions there.

To my surprise I was overcharged for the bottle of wine I bought
It was my 41st anniversary
I order a bottle of red wine
The price was $36
Unfortunately I was charged $40
The issue is not the $4 overcharged
It is the principle behind
Hopefully this is not common issue

Location is exquisite and so is the restaurant decor. Service was wonderful. Food not that great. I had French chicken w succotash. Succotash was great chicken was dry tough and flavorless. A bit of tenderizing via marinade could have done wonders. My partner had an equally uninteresting bolognese pasta. Everything was fresh but the flavors did not add up.

Very nice place. We asked them for an earlier dinner and they were very helpful in getting it for us. They were a little busy but were very accommodating. The food came pretty quickly. We dined outdoors with a pretty view of the lake. Try to get a time close to sunset so your view is even better!
