    Our first visit was enjoyable. We were greeted by a very friendly young college student. Her warm welcome made us feel more than welcome. Our wait server was very friendly too. But, more importantly, she knew the specials and the menus well! We started our dinner with artichoke w/ spinach dip and Sangria. The house salad with the house dressing was fresh and very tasty. The small size was plentiful. The Ceaser salad was also fresh and delicious. We ordered Petite Tenderloins (6 ounces) cooked to perfection - 1 medium, 1 medium rare. The steaks were tender, juicy, and very tasty. We choose different meat toppings - 1 w/ 3 grilled shrimp, 1 w/ Argentinian. The shrimp was cooked and spiced to perfection. The Argentinian reminded me of gourmet food in Buenos Aires. Our sides included loaded potatoes (like baked without the skin) and Ratatouille which reminded me of dining in the home of friends in Paris. Our first floor window white cloth table gave us a pleasant view. However, the room temperature was a bit warm. It was near 100 degrees outside and we sat down at 5 pm. The room temperature did seem closer to comfortable when we were presented with our check. This morning, we drank coffee and ate our Key Lime Pie that we ordered to go! Delicious. We will return to try other dishes and beverages.

    We’ve enjoyed 1836 several times but this visit left us disappointed. It was easily 80+ degrees in our small section of the restaurant. So hot that a small fan was brought into the area. Not only were we not offered another location to sit they closed the door from the cooler patio area so as to keep our warmer air contained. Disappointed for sure.

    I always love coming here. My waiter forgot to bring bread and my food came before my salad, he forgot the salad, I had to ask for it. My drink was not in the right glass. But food was very good.

    Happy hour at 1836 is an extraordinary value because the appetizers and drinks are top-notch. That you can also get an impressive steak dinner at a reduced price is icing on the cake. I am a regular for happy hour and will come as often as I can, bringing as many newbies as I can, as long as I can get a salad, steak and side for twenty bucks. Love it!

    We sat in "The Attic" so the noise level was a little louder than the downstairs dining areas. The meal was amazing, best Risotto and Ribeyes we've had in a while. Our server, Hunter, made great recommendations and provided great service.

    We had a reservation at 8p; didn’t get seated until 8:35p waiter never offered bread like every other table and salad and wine came 25 minutes after it was ordered, which seemed long. Food was perfection, however!

    The food was wonderful. Spinach artichoke dip was amazing as well as the salads, french onion soup and of course the filets! I have already booked my birthday dinner here next month. When you get there just be ready to stay over 2 hours. The server we had was very good however, it was just very very slow. Never thought we would have been there that long. BUT! the food was worth it!

    It was our first time there and our server “Hunter” went above and beyond to give us exceptional service. He even went as far as to give us 1/2 off our next bottle of wine because the wines we chose were not available. The banana foster made up for everything the bar was out of.

    The service was fantastic but the food was just okay. Salad was delicious but the rolls were not hot and fresh, the meal was good but not top notch. It was very easy to have a conversation with our friends and that was very enjoyable. We didn’t feel rushed only welcomed.

    Disappointing experience. They have discontinued the special Sunday prime rib which was the point of going on a Sunday at lunch. They have changed the beloved pork chop entree to something much less desirable, and according to the waiter, this went from their most popular to least popular item very quickly. According to the waiter, the chefs special cut this Sunday was a chicken Parmesan (so essentially there were zero special cuts to offer- as chicken parm is clearly a daily entree special vs a special cut). The crab cake appetizer came out completely cold and unappetizing. The filet and loaded mashed potatoes I ended up ordering were fine- but overall very disappointing experience and I won’t be back on a Sunday afternoon again anytime soon. While Sunday used to be popular, the restaurant was less than half full downstairs and the upstairs was completely closed. Obviously I’m not the only one that thinks it has gone down hill and not worth it on Sunday’s anymore without the Sunday prime rib special. The waiter was good, but didn’t make up for an overall very underwhelming experience with the food.

    The Caesar salad was swimming in dressing and the Parmesan could have been less dry. Not sure if they used Reggiano as it has the best flavor. Portion was good but could not finish as I expected a much lighter dressing allowing the flavors to meld. I asked for a medium filet and it came well done. The cook must have cooked the steak first and then prepared the mushroom and onion sauce instead of the other way around. Onions need to be cut a little finer, helps with cooking and presentation. The flavors were good and since I was hungry there was no point in getting another steak as although well done it was not tough and was acceptable. Steak prices are not inexpensive and should be presented as one ordered. These comments are not meant to be overly critical but pointers for improvement. Since I was asked for my opinion I do so honestly from my point of view. I will be back to the restaurant at some time in the future.

    The restaurant was slammed on Father’s Day and by the evening service was out of all steaks (this is a steakhouse) and numerous other appetizers and sides. What we ate was tasty but lack of choices was a major disappointment

    It was hot inside. They were out of all steaks except chicken fried steak and sirloin. This is the second time we've been there and they were out of some of their deserts. As this is the only nice steak place in Huntsville these probably won't keep us from going. If we won't somewhere to go for a celebration that's it.

    We were very disappointed that they were completely out of at least 10 food items, many of which were steaks. 3 of our 7 diners were planning on getting steak, and not the kind of steak you had left...very disappointed Father's Day celebration. The waiter, Dayton, was AWESOME!

    Excellent steaks, and sides were delicious. Servings portions were generous and not stingy. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating and our (female) server was stellar. It's nice to have a place in town that's upscale, but still inviting and friendly. We ate lunch and were wearing (nice but comfortable) causal wear and it was appropriate. I would probably dress up a little more at night.
