They open at 6:30 and we were seated on time. Great wine selection. Service was great, and everyone friendly, in fact they even offered the recipe for the one pumpkin muffin which was real good. They also have small plates which I order and it was fulling. One person in the group had filet mignon and it was the excellent.... More

With some notable exceptions, most restaurants in hotels can be pretty awful -- and 1895 was no exception. It has all the ambiance, all the little flourishes, but inadequate food and naive service does not make for a good dining experience.Best part was the she crab soup that was quite tasty. My companion's entree of scallops was a mess --... More

This is one of my fav places to dine. The food and cocktails are always fantastic. I try something new every time we visit. The service is always been impeccable. This is a perfect date night or girls night out.

We had breakfast here for three mornings. The omelette was perfect. I also enjoyed the best waffle I have ever had. We also enjoyed a dinner with a perfectly cooked steak.

Great spot for fine service and close to downtown Pinehurst. Shuttle service from Carolina Hotel available, but not a bad walk. Very good food.

Foof was excellent, as was the wine and service. I'm vegetarian and allergic to mushrooms, but still had an excellent meal and had to get dessert " to go" as I was too full. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Maybe it's because of the ambience of the restaurant but always enjoy eating here at least once we stay at Pinehurst. The restaurant is more cozy and service always good as usual. Both here and at Carolina, the food is equivalent of above average of a good cruise ship. Since these places cater to a much smaller clientele, I think... More

At here while staying at Pinehurst. The dining room is incredible and is definitely worth seeing even if you are not eating there, but you should definitely eat there if you can. The food was so good, and we all sampled each others just to share the experience. Everything was tried was amazing, but the highlight was definitely the chocolate... More
