Review 1904 Bistro Americain - Kloof

Tori Tite
Had an amazing dinner with friends here and the service was excellent. We ordered the Caribbean Jerk chicken, Seafood hot pot and the prison platter. The waiting time for the meal was moderate and didn't take long. Everything was done excellently. The atmosphere was serene and the decor was quite tasteful. It's a great place for families to meet up and have a great family time. Would definitely go back and try other options on the menu. Highly recommended.

Absolutely love going here for meeting up with family, friends and even a little date. Atmosphere completely unique and an escape from reality with neon lights and floral prints. Drinks are always amazing, coffee is superb and food is great. On the upper class of restaurants and the prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity you've ordered.

Best restaurant I know in Kloof, pinetown. It's a family restaurant yet elegant in style and has a variety of dishes to enjoy. Busy yet excellent service and clean.

Such an awesome dining experience. The food was deliciously prepared and well- presented. Great service from staff, friendly management. Highly recommended.
Lynn Archibald
Great restaurant and delicious food. service was tentative and not over bearing. Food was tasty with one of the dishes being a bit cold which they fixed in a heartbeat. Menu is extensive and we will definitely be back to try other dishes

This is the second time we have been to 1904 , and again , they did not disappoint . Frederick our Waiter was Amazing and Nigel , the Front of House Manager , very attentive . The Head Chef came to our table twice to check that we were happy . The food was stunning , even though I don't normally order Burgers , mine was the tastiest I have ever had . We even ordered the Voodoo wings and Prawn Appetiser as take outs because we were so impressed . Keep up the Good work and see you in 7 months when I am back in the Country 👊🏻

Awesome place, great waitress service from Wewe. The food wash delicious, ordered Buffalo wings and nachos... 🔥
This place is absolute heaven. The food is a solid 10/10. Customer service is just as good. The drinks are sooo good. It lives up to its reputation. It's definitely a place worth traveling for. Thank you to Wandile for making our experience pleasant.

My family and I had an awesome time. It was my son's birthday and our waiter, Isaac, went out of his way to make our evening more special. Our meal consisted of the mussel starter together with chicken wings. Everything was sumptuously prepared. This was the perfect set-up for our mains. Again, our food was incredibly well prepared and this resulted in tender, flavourful meat.
Kay Makhanya
The food was great and Musa, our waitress was friendly and attentive. The place is beautiful with lovely aesthetics. We spent our afternoon here for lunch. The chocolate cake was perfect. Despite the place being packed with lotsa celebrations going on, Musa was always around to check up on us. Would definitely recommend this place. Overall, the experience was lovely.
Linda Khuboni
Atmosphere amazing, service out of this world.... The food was ridiculously delicious I could have some more if I had an extra stomach. That Prisoners platter was something else. Those ribs just fell off the bone, the pulled pork was amazin. I have never had ribs that good. The balance from the smoke, the sauce and the spice rub you could taste everything. My wife couldn't stop talking about her meal, Chef's Dave Manhattan. The steak was perfectly cooked as per her instructions and the sauce was amazing. We will definitely going back very soon.
Chikita Strydom
Celebrated my birthday here and wow, what a lovely evening. Everything was amazing - from the food, to the service, to the atmosphere and general vibe of the restaurant. We were a group of 10 and nobody had any complaints about their food whatsoever. They brought me ice cream with a sparkler and wished me for my birthday which I thought was really thoughtful and they allowed me to bring in my own cake. Will definitely be back as there is so much on the menu I still want to try!! Thank you 1904 🙏🤩

This place is beautiful, excellent service from the staff(friendly n warm), oh my God their food is so delicious 😋 and the an advantage is that they close at 10 pm even on Sunday 👌👌
Ronan Chetty
Great restaurant located in Kloof. Lovely theme and sleek modern design concepts. Service is great. Food and drinks are amazing, signature burgers, gourmet hotdogs, slow roasted pork and beef. My favourite is the burgers and milkshakes. Authentic American style milkshakes and burgers as well as hot dogs. I had a lovely time here and have been going here regularly. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone with a passion for good food.
Mandy Eysele
I had the Prawn Natchos which I must be honest it had no taste besides for the Chalepinos, very very little cheese if any no taste & then the prawns were more like shrimps again no flavor it tasted like it was boiled in salt water that was it! The quantity was pathetic it was a single circle in the plate with the sauce in a bowl in the middle of the plate & it was hard to find the avo! All round a no no meal!!
Terry Babb
So enjoyed lunch yesterday witn my girlfriends. Stunning decor, our waiter G was great, knew the menu & was charming. No problem exchanging the not to my taste bearnaise for pepper sauce at no additional cost for the great grass fed fillet.The huge portion of roasted veg was the best ever. My companions concurred with 2 of us having the same food but I'll definitely be back to try the highly rated prawn pasta one evening & the mussels starter for lunch before too long.
Amanda Kuiper
Delicious food in all 3 courses, lovely ambience and excellent service. We were personally spoken to by the chef 2 or 3 times and had a delightful, well spoken waiter (Thabani).
Andreas Mathios
Friday was my cheat meal Rump steak 500g was perfect Decor was different and suited the theme. However the seating decor means that if you have weak bladder and you in the middle everyone has to slide out to allow you to go to bathroom. That was my only issue. Food was really good
Nokwethemba Fezile Ngcobo
I had an amazing time here with my friend who's also a colleague on Tuesday evening. The ambience, atmosphere was awesome. My friend enjoyed her meal but unfortunately I didn't. Had steak which was dry with a terrible tasting mushroom sauce. Bacon cheese fries were lovely though. Regardless of my not enjoying my food "Gugu" our waitron was exquisite. I will be back just for the service we received from him.....
Brendan McAdam
Good food and great service, the voodoo buffalo wings are incredible, blue cheese sauce and buttermilk crusted onion rings were to die for... amazing night out. Well done 1904.
Dharishini Dee Naidoo Sunny
My friend and I absolutely loved everything about this establishment. Starting with a warm welcome at the door to food that is awesome and excellent service all round. Special thanks to our waiter Phillip.
Nonku Mehlo'amahle Maphanga
The place is beautiful, the staff is friendly I don't know how many times we asked the waiters to take pictures of us. The food is delicious. Keep up the good work guys. I smam defenetly coming back soon.

It was a quiet afternoon, only three or four tables occupied. Waiters were a struggle to get a hold off ( standing together at the bar or outside). Ordered a brownie freakshake (really felt for something rich n chocolatey)and a waffle with ice cream. The waffle was one of thee best waffles I've eaten! However, the freakshake was terrible, tasted like milk and had a small piece of brownie on top. Politely asked the waiter (after trying to get their attention for a while) to find out if this is how it was supposed to taste because it tastes like milk he was quite rude, didn't say a word just looked at us n took it away came back in less than 30 seconds n said it is supposed to taste like this and went away. Will def come back for the waffle but not for the terrible Brownie freakshake or should I say milk.
Candy Farrell
We took our son to 1904 for his 13th birthday on Saturday night. They phoned and changed our time due to load shedding which continued longer than anticipated. It was explained to us that not all meals could be accommodated, the staff were amazing even though the restaurant was full and very busy. We waited until the piwer came back on and managed to get what we wanted.....once again amazing food and a great evening was had by all 11 of us....
Donve Leicester
Had my first meal at Bistro 1904 last night. What an epic experience .. stunning decor, great service and delicious food. I’ll definitely be back for more ��
Chantell Egan
Had our 12 year wedding anniversary dinner and the staff made us feel extra special. Food was amazing and amazing staff. Loved every minute.
Moira Kent Brown
Friendly and very relaxing atmosphere. Waiters helpful and quick. Good selection on the breakfast menu and competitively priced.
Frances Loader
We just had the most amazing dinner celebrating my Dad's birthday! Best steak I have had and the service was phenomenal...oh and brownies even better than mine! �
Dylan Bray
Overall the service was great! The steak i had was really good, aside from the insect that was in my dessert, it was a wholesome experience
Mandy Richardson Ivey
Mike and I did our “Cafe Life” book launch here both Friday and Saturday. The staff (Geraldine and Calvin)were amazing. The people who attended loved the food and everyone commented on stylish setting. Lance thank you for checking in from time to time to see that all was good.
Love the decor at this place! It’s has a very retro vibe to it. Walked in to a cocktail special which was an added bonus! I had the rib eye steak with seasonal veggies and smashed potatoes. The portion size was good and the food and drinks were delicious with good flavor! Will definitely be coming back here soon!
Bronwyn Marcus
I have been to 1904 a few times and each time I just love it and leave so satisfied. The servers are very helpful and attentive. The chef has come out to say hello a couple of times. My husband loves this as he is a fellow foodie and can chat a! bout the menu and dishes forever! I took my son for a freak shake and loaded fries!!! such decadence! YUM! you have to try these chips, they have bacon or pulled pork and lots of cheese all over them! Real comfort food at a reasonable price
Meals were simply DEVINE!!! This 90s style diner literally made me feel like I was living the Guy Fieri’s ‘diners, drive-ins and dives’ lifestyle. Meals are extremely huge and freshly made to order. The menu had a really wide variety of burgers, hotdogs, steak, pastas, etc. so this is definitely a place to visit again. The service was not up to standard as our waiter seemed very clueless and blonde however the managers of the place continued to check if we were doing fine with our meals. Overall, it was a good experience and definitely a place to visit again to satisfy any cravings.
Qurisha Misra
We went for dinner on a Friday night. It was very warm and cozy. We had really good service for the night and the food was delicious. My friends ordered a steak with chips and the lamb shank with mash. I ordered the livers (from the starters menu - it was a tomato based sauce) and corn bread. My friend organized a birthday treat for dessert which was really special. Thanks to the 1904 team! Keep up the great work.
Yovanna Reddy
Awesome food, awesome decor and friendly staff. We've been here several times and were never disappointed! Their voodoo wings with mature cheddar sauce are an absolute must. The pulled chicken and crumbed prawns are great as well. Generous portions and lots of flavour. Will definitely be back. The bathroom is sort of awkwardly located, around the back of the restaurant.
Londiwe Buthelezi
Great place, I love the aesthetic. Soon as you get there you're greeted by the friendly staff. My only issue is that after we were given the menu's, our waiter just disappeared and we just sat there waiting for someone to take our order. We had to ask another waiter to help us
Lia Kraus
Definitely the Best burgers in KZN!!!! I have never been disappointed. Friendly staff, great atmosphere. All the burgers are Value for money.
Sarah Herrington
Great venue with an extensive menu and beautiful art nouveau style décor. The atmosphere and food are reminiscent of a 50s diner. I enjoyed my toasted cheese, and the toasted marshmallow milkshake was decadent and tasty. The menu is, however, quite expensive, and the soup my friend ordered was a very small portion.
Lynee Pillay
Service was excellent, good ambience, food arrived quickly, restaurant is spacious modern and airy. Food was good. Porterhouse steak, fillet steak, famous 1904 burgur, beer batter fish.
Zinhle Ndlela
My friends and I went here for a late lunch. When we first arrived, it was a bit empty but traffic started to pick up early evening. The staff is friendly and energetic. The food was good. The only mishap we had was our food not being registered at the till at the same time, thus we had to wait extra for our food.
Always have an amazing experience there, best for birthday dinners and family time , food is always spot on and delicious, and have a great variety of different foods to chose from.
Luyanda Mngadi
Service was absolutely amazing , had the time of our lives while we dined here, keep it up 1904 team I’ll definitely be coming back again❤️ #perfect #greatfood #anazing
Belinda Liebenberg
A lovely restaurant with a wonderful menu. Something to suit all tastes. A great drinks menu and wine menu with reasonable prices. My husband had the steak and it was cooked to perfection. The Linguine was al dented and the sauce - definitely a winner in my books! For kids, the chicken strips are a great portion and the milkshakes would make you want your own.
Sthabile Ngozo
I had heard such great things about this restaurant from my friends and I was so excited to go there. We went there after a hike in Kloof with a toddler and They were really accommodating. <br/><br/>Really love the American diner aesthetic of the place not just in the decor but also in the way the food is served. The food was really delicious especially their Strawberry milkshake. However the waiters could be better as it was hard to locate our waiter.
Tasmika Amin
Had wanted to try this spot out for ages after seeing their Instagram page. Beautifully decorated cafe with a retro vibe. Went through for coffee but ended up feeling a bit snacky.<br/><br/>Service was bordering on average. Found it difficult to flag down our waiter when required. Food was good though. Cheese fries are a passion of mine. Well, cheese in general actually. And these were great.<br/>The wrap was also good and well presented. Good portion sizes.<br/><br/>Would definitely like to go back to try a few more items off the menu.
Litisha Pillay
The modern decor is so tastefully done and very detailed right down to the American styled sugar jars. Its a classy yet laid back feel with the comfy couches and pillows.<br/>The Louisiana prawn starter was scrumpdidlyumptious! Its a must try, their large variety of food leaves you spoilt for choice.<br/><br/>I saw reviews about the staff and service being below average, I think they corrected that part because we had great service from Musa and a few others that checked up on us.<br/><br/>Unfortunately the Duke Fillet did dissapoint me after such a lovely starter, bit of an anticlimax. Needed salt, lacked that x factor, nothing to brag about. <br/>However, I will give it another bash for the vibe and to try something else. So much variety, its worth another try.
Driving past this restaurant everyday while it was been done up and starting to look attractive from the outside, I couldn't wait to get inside and see what they had to offer. For weeks after they opened I read mixed reviews about the place. So eventually we decided to go there for my mother In-Laws birthday. We all enjoyed ourselves there, it was not the best but also not the worst by a long shot. The staff could have been a bit more attentive to us, especially because it was pretty slow night.<br/><br/> As for the food, starters our party ordered some Louisianna cheesy prawn bake which was very tasty, also some Snails gorgonzola with parmesan crusted cheese which was fantastic, the Southern style sauteed chicken livers were also a hit. The only bad thing with our starters was the Cast-iron panned fresh mussels, the mussels them selves were cooked well but the sauce they in was terrible, it was very powdery and ruined the whole dish. <br/><br/>Now on to our main courses 1 of our party had The Duke fillet and another had Manhattan Fillet both really enjoyed the meals, 2 of our party had the 500g rump and both were ordered rare but when the arrived at the table 1 was rare and the other was medium, which was really disappointing as we both really enjoy our meat and it has to be rare, the other 2 in our party ordered Grilled prawns which both of them didn't enjoy at all, as most of the prawns were powdery and not nice, my wife has been put off prawns since she had those ones. As for my 5 year daughter she had some crumbed chicken strips which she really enjoyed<br/><br/>Come the end of the evening now we deciding on desserts 3 in our party had the apple pie which they said was a bit dry but nice, another had chocolate sunday which really went down well and last of the desserts was a vanilla bean panna cotta which was heavenly.<br/><br/>So we had some really nice meals that evening with a few lets downs. So guess I'm going to have to go back again and give them another try. Hopefully next time it will be slightly better as it seems like a nice place. Will be keeping my eye on this place and their reviews!!
Verusia Chetty
The food was lovely. The waiter was efficient<br/>Manager needed some improvement on interpersonal skills. We have 3 kids and their satisfaction is an imperative. Can do with some attention in that area. But again the food was spot on
Bhavsha Sudesh Badul
Decor: 4/5<br/>Service: 3/5<br/>Ambiance:4/5<br/>Food:3/5<br/><br/>Decided to try out this spot and trek up the hill to a great venue. Hosts are utterly splendid and very accommodating. Waiters know what's on their menu and very efficient. Great spot for a chilled dinner but I assume that breakfast must be a real treat with the options on the menu. Portions are large so opt to share. Great night out out and worth a try 👌🏻
Gwillym Anthony Pitt
My girlfriend and I decided to try this place out for our 2 year anniversary and we had an awesome experience. My burger was huge and her Mac n Cheese was very cheesy. Drinks arrived in record time and our waitress, Zinhle, was very friendly. Will definitely be going back :)
Ash Robyn
Love love love it here! I think the bestie & I have found a new hangout. I really wish I could have ordered everything on the menu (biggest variety ever) food is excellent and so are the prices. It's beautiful inside and a trendy environment. Only down fall are the jalapeño poppers...the menu says jalapeño stuffed with mozzarella ( the usual) but I got this new creation of probably chopped up peppers in cheese (I dunno). It was so tasty but with zero kick at all. I really think they can be number 1 on my list had they just served a normal popper, need to crunch into that entire jalapeño! <br/><br/>Other than that, it's an awesome place, and he I can't wait to go back.
Jaco Meintjes
What a delightful way to end our holiday. Saw this restaurant by chance from the road. Everything for the service, food and ambience was fantastic!
Caitlin Franken
Love the look of the restaurant the vibe is fun the waters and waitress are friendly and chatty. Food was stunning and well portioned. Love how they do their prison platter 😊. Will most certainly go back
Kimlen Naidu
A group of friends and I decided to get our Guy Fieri on and visited 1904 for the 1st time.The restaurant was nicely styled with a mordern American dinner theme (hope i got that right) Ordered the sliced brisket (based on other reviews)and man ou man ...... it dam sure didnt disappoint.The sides that came along were also good. I tasted the vegetarian pasta option that one of the guys ordered and i must admit that it really sucked. Tried most of the milk shakes on the menu (due to us being in a group) and the double chocolate stood out ( probably one of the best i ever had ). The service was really great from the waitress and the manager that was doing his rounds. Definitely going again !!!
Gill Gregory
Had the falafel burger and sorbet. The burger was really good and got a big portion of sorbet. Our waiter was really friendly and made us feel really comfortable
As soon as I saw the menu I was SO excited, it's all the America without the Trump. <br/><br/>We ordered the Rocky Road milkshake and the Cookies and Cream. The Rocky Road was okay but the Cookies and Cream did not disappoint, it had good bits of chocolate in it, which tasted like chocolate that you get in those cup ice creams (we were trying to figure why it tasted so familiar and that was our conclusion).<br/><br/>Then for lunch we order the Po' boy, Philly Cheese Steak, Pulled Pork Bun and Cheesy Chilly Fries. We were also going to order the Cuban sandwich but on the menu it said corned beef but traditionally it has ham, sup with that? <br/><br/>The Po' boy was delicious, crispy prawns and the fresh tomatoes and lettuce go really well with it. <br/>The slight hint of spiciness in the sauce (or in the crumbed prawns?) was definitely needed. <br/><br/>Philly Cheese Steak was meh. It lacked seasoning and needed something extra, caramelized onions maybe? <br/><br/>Pulled Pork Bun was AMAZING. It's everything you wish for when you think of pulled pork. Unlike other places, it's not too saucy or too sweet either, and you get some of the char from the grill. <br/><br/>I've read some poor reviews about the staff etc on some other websites but I have to say that the waiters were very friendly, attentive and knew the menu well. In fact, the waiter recommended the Cookies and Cream Milkshake which turned out to be the better decision.
1904 is definitely my new favorite restaurant. I cannot express how amazing this restaurant is. For one the design of the restaurant is so aesthetically pleasing that I couldn't help but snap a few photos for my Instagram. I stopped there with my boyfriend for milkshakes and were extremely happy. I ordered an M&M milkshake while he ordered a chocolate brownie freak shake. It was definitely worth the price. I can't wait to go back there to try out the food. Brilliant. Could not recommend more.
Michelle Rocke
Great decor and vibe, upmarket but comfortable feel. The staff were SUPER enthusiastic (maybe a little too much), but very helpful and attentive. Menu is large and heavily meat based (burgers, ribs etc) so come hungry. We had a burger and a rib/pulled pork combo, the latter of which was the winner.
