Our experience at 121 was great. We went there this past Tuesday for our wedding anniversary.
1/2 price bottles of wine- which we were told right away (thank you. I feel like other restaurants sometimes withhold that info)
I asked if they could do 1/2 portions of the pasta (not on menu) and was told right away "Of course." The food was so good. Had the tuna tartare- fresh and light, rigatoni - amazing!
My husband had the lamb chops. I don't like lamb- and they were outstanding. I had the shrimp and grits which were beyond tasty.
And they make their own ice cream. enough said

We know we will not be disappointed at "121". Menu has a great variety of dishes, fabulous thin crusted pizza. Service is reliable and friendly! We will keep going back!

We went for dinner on Easter Sunday. When we arrived we were seated in the bar area; would have preferred being asked re: sitting in the dining room or bar. Bar area is smaller and noisier (cocktail shakers, etc) and it is where the entry to the restaurant is (doors opening, breezes). Other than that, the service was attentive; atmosphere very pleasant, and the menu has excellent range - burgers, pizza, salads, plenty of sea food starters and mains, and the bar offers a good selection of all libations. Tasty food, pleasant upbeat atmosphere; oldies tunes in the background. Versatile, well-managed and a good time. I’m goin’ back!

We had reservations and were first seated at the worst seats in the middle of everything. When I expressed interest in a better table we were moved but I felt like that should have been the first move. Our waiter was not friendly at all. Food was just okay. Delivered to table by several servers but with no personal touch at all. Seemed everyone working was mad. At least it was super expensive and when my husband requested a plain bowl of berries instead of with the sabayon we were charged extra. Not rushing back anytime soon....

My wife and I went for Restaurant Week on a Thursday evening. Nice restaurant, great choices on menu, food was great. Main complaint is that we were rushed. If I wanted to spend one hour and ten minutes for three courses, I would have went to a diner. That is unacceptable for a decent restaurant and management should pay close attention to this. Courses came out back to back to back.

Pleasant, casual, nicely decorated country restaurant tucked away in Northern Westchester. Restaurant Week lunch; Goat Cheese Ravioli, Bok Choy Salad, Cubano sandwiches, Chocolate trifle deserts all very good, well and imaginatively prepared. Service is friendly and efficient. Wine list is very good, basic, and very well priced. Big value for money. Great spot for lunch.

When your meal begins with hot mini croissants in the bread basket you are off to a terrific start. My husband and I enjoyed "Date Night" at 121 on Valentine's Day weekend. French Onion Soup was what it should be, but rarely is at many restaurants, the soup broth was the star with fresh stock and a modest accompaniment of cheese and crouton. Highly enjoyable and not a salt bomb. Pizza was good, thin crust, fresh cheese. A pappardelle special featured homemade pasta, roasted root vegetables and pork shanks - delicious! We had the dessert special - Passionfruit Sabayon with Strawberries - melt in your mouth lusciousness. Cocktails are made well. Service was friendly and efficient. A great night out.

Host tried to seat us at a tiny table for 2 that was extremely uncomfortable. The restaurant was empty since it was only 6pm. We asked to be moved and got an attitude. We moved into the bar table area. Other than that, service was excellent and food was also.

Very disappointed. It was our anniversary and I made that clear by checking the box as well as stating in the comment area. Got there and waited a few min to be sat.
Hostess takes us to a basement. Kind of dark and cold. Only one or two other couples down there. Sort of an enclosed patio. Had to leave my coat on to eat. My husband says to her it’s very depressing down here and she says
We are busy! Won’t be seeing us again

Fantastic Thanksgiving dinner ! Portions were perfect, all the sides were excellent. Turkey was moist and flavorful. The mashed potatoes, stuffing, brussell sprouts and root vegetables were stand outs. Apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake desert was very good, but the donuts with dipping sauce and chocolate brownie was fantastic.

Service was great throughout the meal. Great teamwork by the staff.

We'll be back next year !!

My dining partner had ordered the chicken. The portion was generous. The problem was the chicken was raw. The waitress and management handled the situation beautifully. Without fanfare, they deducted the meal from the bill. I had ordered the scallops. They were alright. I cook scallops and felt that, not only is three scallops a bit light in the protein department, but also, mine are tastier.

Food and atmosphere was very enjoyable. The bartender needs to improve the drink selection. The Prosecco wasn’t cold, the strawberry margarita was bitter and the flirting came in an old fashioglass with ice and a cherry. Nothing about it tasted like a flirtini. I loved the appetizer selection and everything we had was good. The Brussels sprouts side dish, which sounded wonderful, was bland and tasteless.

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.
