Chicken was cooked perfectly. Great job! Server was friendly and made sure my drink was always full. Place is close to doubletree hotel and not far to walk.
While atmosphere and service were nice 101 Tallahassee was a horrible value for the food the 5 of us received. The ravioli was an extremely small portion of 4 raviolis in a large unappetizing bowl of tepid cream sauce where you had to hunt and peck for the ravioli. The grouper was underseasoned and average in taste. I went to this restaurant to celebrate my graduation with family and I truly wish I would have spent less/the same amount of money next door at Harry's or any of the other wonderful restaurants in downtown Tallahassee where I would've gotten exceptional food and taste. I am so disappointed in this trip and I will not be back and I have already warned many friends of my dining experience and the overpriced mediocre food at 101.
The waiter was too busy. He forgot my and the food was and drinks were awful
This restaurant offered a different menu called the Special Event Menu because it was Florida State University's Parents' Weekend. The selection was limited and prices higher, which we did not appreciate. Their usual menu was not available, even upon request. If a restaurant is going to offer a limited, pricey menu to its patrons, it should inform those who made reservations of that fact. To find it out upon arrival was unsettling and akward for our group. We were treating everyone and no one really wanted to be spending big bucks on entrees. Almost all of us ended up ordering an appetizer pizza as our meal - - there only was perhaps one entree choice below $20 and that was for a burger. This is not the type of restaurant that can command such high prices either. If we knew of this pricey, limited menu, we would have made reservations elsewhere.
We have dined at 101 before and have always enjoyed it. Often their specials are surprising and delicious. However, this time they had a limited menu, which I was not informed about. There was nothing special on the menu and I was rather disappointed. If we return, I will ask about the menu before making a reservation.
Best Filet Mignon I ever had but the atmosphere was terrible. Large group next to us were so loud that we could not hear each other. Not a large dining area and to open to the bar. Not a place for kids. Service was mediocre at best, they need to learn customer service. Furniture was old cheap stuff and seats in chairs were all reaped up, how cheesy. So bottom line is great food, terrible staff and place. Not worth the time and money.
THE RESIDENTS AND I ENJOYED THE FOOD AND STAFF. WE LOOK FORWARD IN RETURNING IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
Family visited 101 for mothers day brunch, service was horrible. Had a non friendly server, which when the bill came we figured out why.. She was getting a tip either way. very slow service. never smiled. Not the first time I have had this while eating at 101. I wont be back.
I went on 1 May (first day of FSU graduation). I made the reservation on 27 April and was actually shocked that they even had an open reservation, especially for a party of six.
I arrived early and was seated before the rest of the party arrived (unheard of in Albuquerque). I wasn't more than five minutes ahead of my sister and her friend but the waiter took my drink order and had water for the table and a gin and tonic for me before they even walked in. The waiter brought my grandparents an entire bowl of lemons when they asked for extra lemons for their tea. My sister's boyfriend was a little late but we weren't pressured to order without him like the waitstaff at some restaurants would have done. My step-grandmother's son went to college with the owners (who are apparently FSU alumni also) and one of them came over to say hi and chat with her about how her kids are doing which I thought was just delightful.
Because of graduation, they had a limited menu. They were very accommodating of special dietary requests (one celiac who avoids all grains and a vegetarian who won't eat seafood) and all six of us had wonderful choices to make for our appetizers and entrees. My filet was perfectly between medium-rare and medium, as requested, and the asparagus was perfectly cooked as well. And, my barometer of service, no one's glasses were ever empty.
I've probably been out of the South and in New Mexico for too long because I was so impressed by not only the prompt service but also the genuine hospitality of the owners and staff. Next time I'm on Tallahassee, I will definitely be back to check out the regular menu.
we decided to go to 101 prior to a concert and the place was PACKED. The service was ok given how busy they were. Food was good with decent portions at a decent price. Very good location and would go back again.
Great for a good Happy Hour. My Martini was very good. Food was tasty but portions a bit on the small side. Service was slow, and could be better.
Just checked out 101 with my best friends for our monthly ladies night and we had a great time. The food was excellent, the drinks were just right and the company was the best.
101 is definitely our go-to place when we are in Tallahassee. A fun place to eat on game weekends...lively atmosphere and a great bar scene.
Our meals (surf/turf and the veal) were prepared perfectly to order along with ample portions of delicious sides. Dessert too sweet and yummy!
We typically enjoy 101, but we were not aware of the preset menu for Valentine's Day. A bit pricey for the portion/quality of food. We will go back, but not on a special occasion.
We had a noon reservation for brunch, we were seated promptly and our server was very attentive and friendly. Unfortunately the buffet was a huge disappointed. When we arrived there was very little food available and it took 45 minutes before more food was set out. They also ran out of plates and that took 10 minutes to replenish. Then the servers were coming out to the buffet to fill plates that I'm assuming were for orders from the menu. The food itself was was disappointing and in some cases inedible. The still frozen biscuits and cold, gloppy sausage gravy were the "best" bad example.
We may try 101 for dinner as we've heard good reviews; but I definitely do not recommend the brunch.
Food was fabulous, service was quick, staff was friendly with routine checks to make sure everything was going well, and atmosphere was excellent - it seemed to be the place to be in Tallahassee. Would definitely recommend!
I brought my family here for Sunday brunch, and we opted for the buffet. In spite of the fact that we were one of the first groups to arrive, many of the dishes were lukewarm. The bacon was mostly very under-cooked and the biscuits were cold. No pancakes showed up the entire time we were there, and it took about 20 minutes before many of the dishes arrived. The cheese grits were completely under-cooked - gritty and barely warm. The kitchen needs some help in execution with some of the more basic dishes. Surprisingly the crab benedict was one of the better dishes, but I wish the more basic version had been an option.
On the plus side, our service was very good. We had an attentive waitress who was very nice.
We had a wonderful time food was great and staff was fantastic
The Open table reservation process worked great, and the restaurant called and confirmed the morning of our reservation. Our group had burgers, pizza, wings and filet mignon (quite diverse choices) All the food was great, cooked perfectly. Our servers were on point. Don't search any further.
