The 1833 Kitchen & Bar provides a superior dining experience! The food is delicious and the service outstanding.

We were there for 2 nights and loved the Seared Scallops and the Pasta Bolognese.
The Chopped Salad was wonderful, too.

Coffee was great as was the homemade ice-cream.

Before we checked-out of the Rowland House, we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast there.

Can't say enough about the staff, each one was friendly, informative and willing to converse. They seemed not only well-training but truly enjoyed working there.

Would highly recommend dining there!

My husband and I were staying at Inns of Aurora Rowland House for the evening. We made reservations for 1833 for dinner. Both of our meals were outstanding! The service was great. We will definitely return when we are in Aurora!

Interesting cocktails to start. Food and service were excellent as always. We dine here often! The charcuterie board was great to start with our cocktails! It is always different with local cheeses and meats. Salad is lightly dressed and delicious! We are never disappointed.

We shared the house curd salmon to start and the delicata squash as a main dish. The beets side with chèvre was a good addition. Everything was wonderful. The cocktails we tried were fun and our wine selections by the glass were very good. I had the Ravines Cab Franc 2019 and my husband had the French Chardonnay. The service was prompt but not rushed.

This is our second time dining here. First was in November and service was excellent. Second time was yesterday and service was not good. One simple example is that we asked for the coffee refill and got charged for another cup, for which we waited a very long time.

Always a great experience. We had a group of 5 and I called ahead to tell the restaurant we were celebrating a birthday and they did a good job making our birthday girl feel special. The rack of lamb special was terrific and charcuterie was perhaps the best I’ve ever had. Two of our group ordered the steak which they described as the best steak they had ever tasted.

As always, we experienced great service.

The food has greatly improved at the Inns of Aurora restaurant! For the longest time it was drab if not downright bad. Happily everything I ate in 3 meals there was very good. The Seafood chowder was exceptionally good - the best I have eaten anywhere. It is flavorful, a nice soupy texture (I really dislike gluey chowder), and had an enormous assortment of seafood in it. I had salmon in a shiitake broth that was also very very good. The salmon and vegetables in the broth were perfectly cooked, and it was very tasty. 1833 Kitchen & Bar has a lovely quiet ambience and it is of course, a beautiful place to eat looking out at Cayuga Lake. The breakfast I had was also good and it was a wonderful change to have the staff anticipate needs for things like jams, hot sauce, cream, refills, etc. Thank you for being open again every day of the week - it makes a stay at the Inns much much more enjoyable.

I've lived in Ithaca for 40 years and I think that the present Aurora Inn may well be the best restaurant I've ever been to in the Ithaca area. A 25-mile drive but well worth it. I'll be going back often.

I had never been to this place but decided to try it after seeing the good reviews on Open Table. Well worth the drive. Food was great. Wine seemed a little pricey but it was expected given the nature of the restaurant.

The hostess offered a couple different places within the restaurant where we could have brunch. We elected to sit in front of the warm fireplace with a view of the lake. Our server was attentive, polite, friendly and made good suggestions (unfortunately I forgot her name). My wife had the garden skillet which she found to be exceptional. I had the Boston Seafood Chowder with a side salad. The chowder was exceptional as well. They make their own Bloody Mary mix and it was very good.

We had a wonderful dinner Aurora Inn Saturday night. My wife had the shrimp special which said was outstanding- great flavors, delicious fried polenta with a great sauce. I had the scallops which were also wonderful. We both had the seafood chowder to start which always great. The Inn dining room is very comfortable, well appointed facility and the service is impeccable. Great date night for us

It was our first time there and a wonderful surprise. We heard it was lovely but didn't know what to expect. My designer husband loved the pattern the light made on the walls, ha! The seasonal fare was delicious and the waiters and staff were friendly and also gave us some tips on the wineries nearby.

Both waitresses were attentive and anticipated our needs. Your French toast is the best that we have ever tasted. Thank you for adding special touches to acknowledge my husband’s birthday.
