    Absolutely loved our experience at this Financial District eatery. First Kayla and Christina greeted us warmly and immediately I felt most welcome throughout my dining experience. Christina ensured that not only dishes were cleared, but kindly checked in with us throughout our dinner. This wonderful, friendly ‘can do’ attitude really impressed me. Zara, our waitperson was conscientious, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She too checked in frequently, making notable suggestions to add to the excellence of our experience. Run, don't walk to this gem. Job well done all around.

    I thought 121 Fulton was quite lovely especially for an afternoon bunch. I would recommend to friends or colleagues who are looking for a place to dine. The service was very good, all though I would recommend that if the restaurant isn't crowded that the server not rush the client, so their food can digest. If the restaurant is busy that's another story. One thing I would not recommend on the menu are the slider crab cakes, just to much bread especially if your watching your weight. Other than that everything else was good and I would go there again.

    This is a good place to have lunch with co-workers or meet up with friends in the Financial District. The place is big and comfortable although it may have a cheap looking sign and narrow entrance. We're happy with the burgers, fries and tacos we had on this visit. The servers are attentive and friendly.

    Fulton 121 is a fun place for dinner! After having been there a couple of times for lunch, I decided to try it for dinner with a friend and has a good vibe with a lively bar crowd, but enough space between the bar area and tables that make dinner fun.

    Came here to watch the world cup final this weekend. Been here a few times and the food and service are always consistent. The fact that they have over 40 tvs and the place isn't well known made it perfect for my group brunch and afternoon of drinks & sports. The food was ok but not everyone was happy with their meal (specifically the chicken on top of the salads which was bland). The main issue was our waitress who seemed like she didn't want to be there, barely checked on us after we finished eating, and when she did she would take the order of one person and then rush off. It got better towards the end, I think someone told her to check her attitude and another waitress who came on shift later on was very nice.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/4/2014
    We chose this restaurant b/c it was in our neighborhood and we hadn't been (try a new place). The food was OK, it wasn't great. Items on the menu look very appetizing but it's not what you get. The black angus sliders were burnt on the bottom/well-done and the pretzel buns were hard. The chicken in the grilled chicken blt was overcooked, also it wasn't an entire chicken breast it had been cut in 1/2 for $15 I expect the entire chicken breast not a portion of it. The french dipped prime rib had a good taste but was slightly overcooked, also the portion size was small.

    I've been here before for happy hour and business lunches. Great atmosphere for happy hour, but the lunched were not that great. It was hard to get our waitress' attention and our food took long to get out. The food wasn't great with the exception of the burger. My bacon wrapped dates were basically dates (could not taste the bacon) and my steak salad was underwhelming. There was barely any dressing and the noodles and vegetables were overcooked.

    There are not a lot of great choices for a higher-end lunch in this area, but 121 Fulton Street is very good. It has a slick decor that is a combination between a high-end sports bar and a nicer dining restaurant. The food is very good, and the wait staff is professional and cheerful. It has become my go-to place for business lunches when I am near City Hall.

    We were in NY for the day & couldn't decide where to have lunch. Open Table gave us lots of options & we're glad we tried 121 Fulton. The service was attentive & the food was great. We tried the filet mignon tacos & short rib grilled cheese...both delicious. I also recommend the sweet potato wedges. They are amazing!!!

    We got there at 2:50 on a Sunday afternoon and were told they were done serving brunch. Super disappointing because we came all the way downtown for their brunch, which is normally delicious and plus they have an amazing drink special. Who stops serving brunch at 3 on a Sunday?!?!?!?! So we left and went to one of the other dozens of restaurants in the area who serve brunch until 4. Very disappointing, as this place is normally awesome and the food is delicious and I would highly recommend it. But the brunch thing was a deal breaker.

    I found this restaurant on Groupon and it was perfect, as I wanted to take my partner out for brunch on his birthday. The price was good and while the food was average, the Truffle Fries were awesome. The only thing I didn't care for was the server mentioning that it was a Groupon deal. Not that it bothered me or my partner (I told him in advance). But if it were a different type of situation, it could spoil the situation. Just my thought.

    I enjoyed my experience at 121 Fulton ( this was nto my first time) however, every-time I go for a meal, I am put off by how noisy it is. While i do expect the noisy atmosphere at Bar, when one is having a meal with a companion - conversation is nearly impossible I think it might have something to do with the shape - it is a very narrow entrance etc. That said, food and service are fine! The Chicken BLT ( I always have it without Bacon ) is an excellent lunch choice!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/6/2014
    A small group of us came to 121 Fulton to watch the BCS championship game. We were seated in the back in a booth with great views of the TVs directly above. Some of the group complained that sitting directly under the TVs hurt their neck so they moved to a nearby table to get an easy viewing spot. The place was nice and warm which was great after the frigid temps. Each one of us ordered an entree and enjoyed everything (even the salads which can be questionable at a sports bar.) The only thing we noted with the service was that it really dwindled as the evening went on. At one point, someone had to go to the bar to order a beverage since we couldn't find our waitress. All in all though, it was a good spot and we will probably return.

    While the food was decent (interesting slider sampler, solidly prepared sandwiches), the specific temperature requests were certainly ignored (medium rare burger was well-done, seared salmon ordered rare was also very overcooked). Overall food quality was still satisfactory, and prices were appropriate for lunch in the financial district. However, the service, a harried waitress who never refilled our wine glasses, forgot requests for additional condiments, and took almost a full 15 minutes to finally get us the check, made the meal less enjoyable. There are enough other options for classic american fare in the area that we won't be returning.

    I booked a table for work buddies, but it appears that Happy Hour prices are not valid during Happy Hour. I live in Manhattan and expect to pay $10-15 for a glass of wine at a bar, but not during Happy Hour. we were charged $11-12 for each glass of wine we had, and that added up to a hefty tab. on the positive side, I had a burger that was absolutely perfectly cooked. service was very attentive, which is rare for a bar/restaurant.

    My boyfriend and I came for a late dinner on Friday night. We liked the atmosphere and the food was great. Our waitress on the other hand was not. She was polite and pleasant, but she disappeared for like 20 minutes in the beginning so it took a while to get our order in. We noticed she was standing behind the bar just talking. We looked past that since we weren't in any rush, but then she messed my boyfriend's meal up. Then from the moment we got our meal, she was hovering over us as if to rush us out. Even though we didn't care for the waitress we still plan to come back.
