Had an absolute wonderful time at brunch. Went with the in-laws -- it's their favorite place to go. Great food, great server, great ambience -- we enjoyed it tremendously.

The Aurora in is a beautifully restored old inn, and this restaurant is part of it. The room is beautiful and comfortable. There is a lovely outdoor area overlooking the lake, but since we were there at night in late October we obviously could not use it. Food was delicious, drinks were good, and service was friendly and efficient.

We really enjoyed our brunch! The atmosphere is so cozy and intimate - we sat nearby a fireplace in a private corner not surrounded by others and it was great. The food was also phenomenal - especially the home fried potatoes served with most of the breakfast dishes. Highly recommend! We did indicate on our reservation that it was my fiance's birthday, but nobody acknowledged that...that would be the only down side.

LOVE the bar renovation!!!😘
Ben led us to the sweet table for 2 right in front of the fireplace...and since it was a rainy chilly day, that was just perfect!!!😘
We had wine while enjoying the amazingly great seafood chowder and the burrata special—so good!!!
Then I had the scallop dish with that fabulous risotto...I think it was leek based?!
And my husband had the tenderloin...quite excellent!!!😘
I love the entire dining area!!! It’s cozy and gorgeous!!
And I’ve never had anything there that I didn’t love!!
Too full for dessert!!!😂
Next time!!💙

The atmosphere was great, wonderful food, great drinks. Unfortunately, the service wasn’t great. Our waitress was so-so and the staff at the front desk was almost comically rude. I didn’t say a word, but my husband also noticed. We laughed on the ride home about how rude the young ladies at the front desk were. They were almost sarcastic. We’re still pretty young, definitely not old and stuffy customers. Those girls really need a lesson in hospitality and manners.

The service was incredible and Tammy our server was a pro. Our meal from appetizer to main course was delicious. It was great way to celebrate a birthday! The only thing I'd change is for the restaurant to lose the canned and loud lame violin cover muzak.

Both the food and the setting were outstanding. From the appetizers to the main course the food left you wanting more. Krissy was our waitress and was both professional and personable. She explained everything well and gave us enough time and space that we didn’t feel rushed but we never had to find her to ask for something....she always sensed it and was right there

We had dinner and then breakfast at 1833 Kitchen & Bar. The meal was great, but it would be unfair to just consider the meal - as the restaurant is just one prong of a multi-faceted renovation and restoration project that is the Aurora Inn and its sister inns in the town of Aurora, all under common ownership. Each property is more meticulously restored and maintained than the next. A visit to Aurora would be a highlight of any trip you might be planning.

We enjoyed a very nice day in Aurora and we ate at the Inn. We were greeted warmly, felt very welcome and the hostess steered us to a cozy table for two. Our waitress was wonderful also. The only very small matter was the bar. We were there early and didn’t feel quite as welcome by the bartender but I realize not everyone is having a great day. It turned out fine.

Excellent food and service. We mentioned earlier in the day at the bar that we were celebrating my husbands retirement.. Later at dinner, the waitress showed up with a glass of champagne for e@ch of us to celebrate. Very thoughtful.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch at the 1833 Kitchen & Bar. The ambiance and view of the grounds and lake were spectacular. The food and service were excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to enjoy a pleasant dining experience on Lake Cayuga.

Very comfortable dining room. Welcoming staff and service. Flatware was placed directly on tabletop which was wiped off with same cloth used to wipe seats etc. . Straws for water were unwrapped and plastic(not paper) and handled by waitress. Great restaurant but needs to attend to possible unsanitary concerns.

Never disappoints!! We got married here and come back each year for our anniversary dinner. Food is fresh and delicious!!! Ambiance is second to none in the evening on the deck overlooking the lake watching the sunset. I don’t know if you can get a better restaurant experience anywhere in Upstate NY.

The hostess was great, telling us that there were bees outside.
The server had a strange demeanor and her appearance was somewhat sloppy.
I had a cobb salad thst was limp and tasteless.

We had to move inside on this beautiful day because yellow jackets were all over the terrace. It would be nice if management could do something about that. Enjoyed our brunch at a nice window table though, food was fine, service was good. Nice place to drive to on a sunny day.

Brunch was lovely. Food delicious, service very attentive and pleasant. Ambience was very nice but the noise level a bit high. The yellow jacket bees were quite a nuisance and a bit distracting. A bit of a concern as my FIL is deathly allergic to them. Overall a very nice time. We will come again.
