Table was ready but otherwise service super slow. Sat at 7:15, ordered drinks and apps right away and food before 7:30. Dinner didn’t arrive u til 8:45. Waitress kept apologizing saying kitchen was backed up over and over. Should have comp’d a drink or appetizer but nothing. Even complained to manager and Nothing.

Poor customer service. A comment from manager with either a comp’d drink, appetizer or a dessert goes a long wAy and nothing here.

Get that it’s spring break and they’re busy which is what he said but every other restaurant on the strip we’ve eaten at had no problem. Aruba twice the size much more efficient and food was better there.

Although it was very crowded on this night (Spring Break) the staff was efficient and the kitchen was able to keep up with the preparation of a most delicious meal.

We always enjoy going to 101 Ocean. For the past eight years we have come to 101 Ocean for our granddaughter‘s birthday. She loves tradition and this is her birthday tradition. She and her family live in Iowa so this is always a special time for us. The service was great and everything was perfect. We would have preferred eating outside but unfortunately the weather was not cooperating. And it was nice to be able to make a reservation through open table.

Made an 8pm reservation for outside seating but was told when we arrived that only inside was available and that 101 does not take reservations for outside. Had I been told this I would have gone elsewhere.

Would recommend for a fun evening out - service was “ok” - 1 meal was ravioli and dinner guest raved - the calamari was very good - salad was ho hum - stuffed shrimp was poor, dry and stuffing had no taste.

Stopped for an outdoor lunch after a morning at the beach. The small table outside was great for people watching. Our server was friendly and her timing was excellent. We were a party of 2 and each ordered a flatbread. (Wild mushroom and taco) Each were very tasty. The only negative comment I have is they NEED to STOP using plastic straws! PLEASE!

101 did not honor my reservation. I made reservation in Open Table at 2pm on Friday for Saturday at 730 pm. I received a phone call from the restaurant at 636pm advising me they cannot honor my Open Table reservation because I asked for an outside table. I needed outside because we were bringing our dog. She went on to tell me that during season they don’t take reservations for outside and it’s first come first serve. That of course changes my plans because waiting around with a dog is work
The fact that they wait until 54 minutes before the reservation is unprofessional and unorganized. They even reported me to Open Table for not showing up to my reservation. Really? if these are your rules you should post that on open table
I’m a local who patronizes this business year round. Now you don’t need me during season. Good luck this summer. You won’t be seeing me

Very disappointed with both the quality of our food and the service when we met our niece and her husband for brunch. The server ignored us once we told her that we needed just a little bit of time to chat before ordering our entree. Once we were able to motion her over to our table, she took our brunch order but was not very warm or welcoming. We ordered from the brunch menu and got the Denver Pie which was presented like a pizza with egg, bacon bits, sausage, etc. It arrived barely warm and looked quite unappetizing. It tasted dry and similar to cardboard crust. We do not recommend this restaurant for brunch. Perhaps their other menu has some good options, but I'm unwilling to try 101 OCEAN ever again due to the poor service, terrible food, and bland atmosphere.

My meal was not worth the price. I got 4 shrimp with crab stuffing for $35. This should have been exceptional. It was overcooked as well as the 4 aspargus spears that accompanied it. Lemon scalloped potatoes were also part of this meal. Just ok.

I was with a group of peoole from work and two of us orded the crab cake eggs Benedict. An eggs Benedict is supposed to have a poached egg with a runny yolk. When my coworker and i received our meal neaither one of our eggs were runny, they were actually cooked through which was very disappointing because i am not a fan of cooked yolk and was expecting a runny egg like its supposed to be. Besides that the food was just okay nothing that I would rave about or go out of my way to recommend

I would recommend to a friend but they need to overlook the help. I am not sure how reserve a table comes up with the table availability but when we got there for our reservation the hostess could have cared less if we had a reservation and your app said there was only 2 times available. Well we were the only people dining at this time and before we left maybe 3 other tables were seated . Used the app the day before and the restaurant was very grateful for our reservation.
