Lovely set up. Food was delicious and very fresh. Great flavors. Willingness to substitute salad for fries.

Have never had a bad meal. Always spot on with mains and sides. Great appetizers also. Their bartender always makes a perfect margarita.

The food was delicious. Only one thing though. We went for the Restaurant Week menu only to discover they do not offer it on a Sunday. Guess we didn't read the fine print. Otherwise, all was fine. We enjoyed the brunch and was not rushed. It was a relaxing, enjoyable meal.

When we made the reservation (over a week in advance) we requested to be seated upstairs. The request was ignored and we were told that the upstairs tables were "reserved". There were a few open. The downstairs section has slate floors and is excessively noisy with large parties. Although we received acceptable service, the overall experience was unpleasant. Our clam chowder was served with oyster crackers in the soup which were soggy and did nothing for the soup. 121 can do better with more careful management.

Oyster appetizer and cocktails were very good, but the entrees left much to be desired. We ordered the rib eye steak and the scallops. The scallops were cooked well but the risotto on which it came was underflavored.

We chose 121 for it's GF and Veggie options which were fine. The food over all was safe and tasted fine. However, we found the service somewhat lacking. My meat came out overcooked which suggested to me that entrees had been fired too soon because they arrived well-timed after our appetizer had been taken away. Secondly, we ordered after dinner drinks but before we got them, the bill arrived w/o the drinks on it, which suggested to me our server had printed the bill before asking us if we wanted anything else. A runner or busboy took the bill with our cards, but then we didn't see them again for almost 20 minutes. Eventually our server came out and said for 20 minutes he hadn't realized the bill was no longer on the table and that our cards were just sitting next to a computer in the back. If you're the type of person who insists on perfect service when dinning out, I think you'll be happier dinning elsewhere. If that doesn't matter to you and you're not looking for anything special from your menu than by all means enjoy 121.

121 is a promising spot with lovely outdoor seating in nice weather and an attractive inside with bar/dining option. Unfortunately at a recent lunch, my daughter requested eggs which were on the Sunday brunch menu she had looked up on line but not for Sat. They could not accommodate her request. No eggs in the kitchen ? We ordered two caesar salads as entrees and the were appetizer sized insipid dishes. When anchovies were requested , they were not available. Caesar salad without that option? The food was not up to par and over priced.
The service was friendly but they are way understaffed. Too bad !

Although appetizer was good (tuna tartar), main entree of halibut over pea risotto was bland both in taste and color and uninspired. Lemon tart dessert only tasted sweet not lemony - disappointing. Service was good and the space is quite nice. Not a bad place to go for drinks and apps but would stop there.

I thought the food was overpriced for what I got. I had a roasted chicken special for about $25.00. The portions were small. I would not go back. Calamari was good but skimpy.

Delicious, creative dishes, a little loud, terrible parking, fun atmosphere in bar, a little less so in restaurant, especially downstairs, but quieter there, very busy but worth the wait, ample outdoor seating, I would go again and recommend 121 to a friend.

121 is always a great choice for brunch. The menu is fresh and creative, a decent value for what's usually a grossly overpriced meal, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. And what could be better than eating on the front porch on a beautiful summer morning?

We have had very pleasant dinners at 121 previously (although a bit overpriced). However at this last dinner service was very slow (45 minutes after ordering), food was OK but not worth the money (rigatoni with sausage was good but no evidence of sausage; $33 for 3 sea scallops with vegetables). Big disappointment this time.

The food was excellent, but the service could be improved. It was quite slow and one couldn't help thinking that the restaurant was short-staffed. The ambiance was lacking - no charm and after a sizeable drive to get there, it was somewhat disappointing.

We celebrated our 39th anniversry here. We both ordered from the nightly special menu. My wife Barb had the fire roasted pepper topped ravioli. Delicious, but a little too al dente. I had the filet mignon. Medium. Perfect! Definitely in the top 2 or 3 filets I've ever consumed. Presentation was very appealing. Service on point too.
All around an excellent dining experience!!
