I got the plantain crusted bass. It had no flavor. I tried a few apps, those were good. We sat outdoors, lots of tourists walking by, Which isn't a bad thing. Drinks were ok. Service was satisfactory.

The place was bustling and we expected our waiter to be busy but basically he was non-existent. The food was very good? I had the Sea Bass and my husband had the Red Snapper. The appetizer of Asian Beef Short Ribs was very good also. I would go back for the food and hope I get a different waiter.

This was our second visit to 101 so we are repeat customers. Everything was excellent drinks, service food, quality and value. I love the 101 Cobb Prices are reasonable for the area and the scene is a little less rowdy than the area restaurants. You wont be disappointed.

Went for a late night snack. Had a great handcrafted cocktail and two slices of very delicious pizza that was an outstanding value. The atmosphere fun and lively . Our servers were just ok, not very interested in keeping our beverages full. but the food and people watching made up for it.

We really enjoy the flatbread dishes, as well as the burgers at 101 Ocean. This is the first time we came with our 1 year old Grandson, and they sat us at a table near the back of the restaurant where we had some privacy and didnt have to worry about him disturbing other patrons.

We ordered two salads to start with and both of them had a significant amount of slimy, decayed lettuce. It was quite disgusting. The sauce in the short ribs was poor tasting and bland . The fried jicama... why fry it? That ruined it. So disappointed because it was nice to sit outside but we couldn't wait to leave.

My wife and I live in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and frequently go to 101 Ocean. It does not deserve the one star rating that I gave in this review but if management is watching these posts I would just like to comment that recent additions to your staff are not encouraging. During our recent visit the waitress was so rude we left our table before our drinks were ordered. We normally enjoy our service and meals but this one deserves a zero star

Friendly receptionists, good menu for their Happy Hour. Waitress appeared quite busy, so a little slow taking care of us, but very friendly!
Great tasting calamari & spinach/crab appetizers.
Will definitely return.

In over a one hour period I saw my server three times. Eventually got up to get our own napkins-never got sauce for my food, never got any drinks refilled, had to ask twice for a box for my sauce less food and the check. Absolutely terrible experience. TV over my head was so loud I couldn't hear my company speaking to me. Won't be going back.

Sat at high top by bar. Had a couple of Arnold Palmers ( ice tea and lemonade mixed ) .
We both had the Philly Cheese steak. Lots of onions . The bread was soooo bready. To much for the amount of meat in sandwich. But the flavor was good . I wouldn't pretend. It again but I would definitely go back.
Can't beat the scean.

Brought my family in for dinner. They were visiting from out of state. Dinner was great, food was good, and service was awesome! We had a few young children and they were able to find something they liked off the menu and enjoyed themselves. Great location and quick walk to the beach (and ice cream) if you so desire.

We were a group of 4 at 4 in the afternoon, and chose to sit outside. By 5:30 the place was packed with people at the "outdoor" bar area and sidewalks. When we left at 6:30, you literally had to weave in and out of people to get through.
The food was good, and the service was great!

When we made our reservations online we made the notation our party of eight would like to sit outside. Running a bit behind, we called the restaurant to let them know we'd be a few minutes late....the hostess sweetly thanked us for calling and took the opportunity to let us know they could not seat a party our size outside, but she had a nice table near their salt water tank, by the windows and a little quieter ready for us when we arrived. We all thought that was too cute. Our table was perfect! The food delicious! A couple of people had the scallops and loved them. Our waiter was top notch and after dinner we walked out on the pier! A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

The waitress was extremly nice. The food was delicious. It was very close to where we were staying and very convenient. It's close to the water. The atmosphere is nice. We went when the Super Bowl was on so we expected it to be somewhat loud. Overall, very pleasant experience.

So I decided to reserve a table for 8 people on Friday night at 101 Ocean. All went well making a reservation on open table I had people coming from Sourh and North Florida.
On Friday morning I call 101 ocean to confirm my reservation they advised me they don't do reservations on Friday Nights. I advised it was confirmed on Open Table. She advised me I have to talk to the manager. I spoke to the manager and she apologize for the inconvenience and that they would honor the reservation. I thank her and felt that was very honorable of them. We got there Friday night no problem with reservation. Our waitress was excellent and the food was great. Real upstanding manager and waitress.

Food was delicious! Sat outside and it wasn't so bad with all the people walking through. Drinks were ok, had a great wine list and had their own cocktail list. People of all ages were dining, so it is definitely a friendly place. They even have dog bowls for your pets if you choose to eat outside.
