1947 Indian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
An outstanding Indian meal, very friendly staff at every turn. We largely put ourselves in the hands of our waiter, asking his recommendations for appetizers and main courses for a table of seven. He asked us what kinds of things we liked, and the result was a mix of delicious standard selections and some we otherwise might have missed. The service was prompt and friendly and every dish was delicious. We are definitely coming back.
This is by far some of the best Indian food i have ever had. I took my mother here while she was in town and had a fantastic time. She is vegan and we we're both impressed how our server took that into account the entire evening. I would recommend this place if it is your first time trying Indian, or if you eat it daily! It was SOOOO GOOOD!
Authentic Indian cuisine in an upscale atmosphere. Beautiful decor and great for a special occasion. Food served in copper pots atop copper heating pots so meal is piping hot until you finish it. Mango chutney is amazing, as is the lamb in mint and cilantro sauce. Great service. Will definitely visit here again.
I order delivery from 1947 when I feel like great Indian food, never disappointed. This is the third time I have dined with friends in the restaurant, and each group of friends have raved over how delicious the food is. The food is delivered in serving dishes which make it very easy to eat "family style" sharing several different dishes, and enjoying a variety of flavors. The decor is modern and nice and the live musicians add to the experience.
As previously explained apparently no one at the restaurant made a record of my Idine reservation despite telling them my name and that I had made one. The meal was a typical Indian buffet. The decor was interesting with a theme of Indian independence hence the 1947 name of the restaurant.
For a very new location, a wonderful treat. 1947 was so welcoming and helpful. The menu was extensive and the food was wonderful. The wine list was modest, but very good value. The staff were most helpful and attentive to our needs. It was a very delightful meal and environment. We would most definitely return for more!
While the food was very good, the okverattentiveness of the waiter ruined the experience. He insisted on taking things away appetizers we were not yet finished with. Likewise, he pushed an appetizer on my date while she was waiting for me to arrive (thankfully, it was a tasty one!).
While just enjoying our drinks and settling in, he repeatedly kept coming back to the table to take our entre' order every few minutes. We would politely ask to come back in a little while more, and he would then hover just a couple tables away, waiting to make eye contact.
It was relatively early, and the restaurant wasn't particularly crowded, so maybe he just didn't have enough to keep him occupied. It got to the point that my date and I were laughing, and waiting in anticipation of the next antic he would pull. Nonetheless, it ruined an otherwise pleasant dinner.
The palek paneer was very good but everything else was just okay. It smelled like mold in the hallway to the bathroom and they masked it with horrible rose smells. I accidentally walked back in the server area looking for the bathroom and caught a couple making out. Not good.
Disappointing second experience!
We had dined at 1947 a few months ago, and it was superb! We went again this weekend, and it was very disappointing. Our waiter had no interest in answering questions or making any recommendations. I asked for a dish with no hot spice, and he recommended one that was still much too spicy for my liking. He never came back to ask if our meals met our expectations, so I was not able to express my dislike until much later when the manager/host was walking by. We used a Groupon which seemed to upset our server as he rudely threw the bill down on the table. I found the portions to be very small (4 small "meatballs" in sauce for $16). I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK!!!
The food choices were standard and nothing stood out. The quality and taste was mediocre, but overpriced. Would not visit again especially with so many other restaurants that offer more exotic and varied choices in the area.
