Met a large group (7) for happy hour/dinner. Noise level was high but we could all still talk. Louis took great care of us. Wings were great as were all the apps. Burgers got high marks as well

My bad for not coming here earlier. Outstanding food - I made food substitutions and they not only listened they delivered top notch plates as though it was already on the menu. Super comfortable seating. Great sized portions, nothing pretentious whatsoever. Cannot wait to return!

As soon as you walk in you’re immediately drawn to the great ambience. The food was impeccable as well. I had the crab dip as an appetizer and the blackened chicken penne for dinner. So delicious! Great drinks, delicious food, and very attentive staff. Highly recommend checking it out.

We were greeted at the door immediately and taken to our seat. We lived the decor. Exposed brick, artwork featuring a mix of artists, and modern tile set the mood. Service was excellent from Fran. Very knowledgeable about the wine list, answered all of our questions, and kept us filled with drinks. Sunken French bread pizza, hoagie salad, and blackened chicken penne are all home runs. Don’t even hesitate. Perfect for a date or coming out late night for drinks and music.

One of the best dining experiences I've had in Federal Hill, hands down. Whoever put together the cocktail list did so perfectly. Nothing to pretentious, just the classics. Great beer selection. Ended up eating the blackened chicken penne and had my mind blown. Unreal. Luis took excellent care of my date and I. You can tell the attitude of the staff goes above and beyond. Will definitely be back soon.

Was greeted as soon as I walked in by a friendly server. They were packed but I could tell they were actively working to make sure we got a table as soon as possible. We got drinks at the bar right away and were seated near a speaker that was a little too loud, I think the manager noticed and turned it down right away. Long story short we came here not knowing we were in for one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. The service was spectacular, the food was familiar and unpretentious. They had a simplistic cocktail menu that was executed properly. ( I love when places don’t go over the top and just do the classics correctly). My tuna burger was exactly what I wanted and my girlfriend loved the fact they had vegetarian options all over the menu. (Buffalo cauliflower, veggie burger). At the end of the meal we didn’t feel rushed at all and the servers kept bringing us drinks even though we had finished eating. We end up staying when the DJ showed up and danced all night. We will be coming back when they come out with their updated brunch menu in the spring! This place is a breath of fresh air to the number of places that try to be things that they aren’t. Simplistic and well executed. Shout out to Luis who took care of us!!!

101 was an all around perfect atmosphere. It was the best setting for a date night. The decor was awesome and definitely set the mood. The food and cocktails were to die for! The sunken French bread pizza and crab dip were awesome for appetizers. Would def recommend getting them! For entrees we got the egg shrimp fried rice and the tuna burger, both amazing! The service was impeccable and we will most definitely be back again!

Great place for large groups to get drinks or dinner. The new menu is AMAZING!!! Our waitress, Fran, was very knowledgeable about the menu and so sweet! We got the Sunken French Bread Pizza and Buffalo Cauliflower to share and it was delicious. Their milkshakes are heavenly so many flavors and you can even add booze! Good to note happy hour is until 10 on Fridays and 8 weekdays! Strongly recommend the Old Fashion cocktail. Will be back soon definitely! Also heard there’s a DJ Friday and Saturday nights! Thanks 101!

When we arrived there were no other parties, with this being the case we were expecting quick service. We ordered bottomless mimosas and unfortunately service was very slow. When our food arrived, two of the dishes were missing ingredients (the eggs..we were there for brunch). When we let the staff know, they took their time fixing the issue. All of the dishes were under seasoned and altogether lacked flavor. When we finished eating, we asked for the check and the server could not figure out how to split our check, and proceeded to take 30 minutes to figure it out. Overall, very disappointing.

The service was not bad enough to stop me from going again, but the waitress I had was very rude. There were two people waiting on us and both were unfriendly. A third person came over to help them and was the only one who was nice. I understand that people have bad days but it kind of ruined a nice dinner with my girlfriends visiting from out of town.

101 Baltimore has great potential. The food is excellent. The staff was attentive. The only issue we had was the orders took quite a while to make it to the table. It was a busy night which may have contributed to the delays. Overall, I would go there again.

Extremely loud. Service though friendly was inconsistent. The restaurant week menu was also inconsistent. New England clam chowder was good but very thick and could have been hotter. The short rib was tough and flavorless, fatty and cold and I could not cut it with the butter knife supplied. Salmon was good but sides were uninspiring and bland. Noodles way overcooked and spatzel was flavorless. Loud bar atmosphere where the wait staff could barely hear you. Probably should put what you do best on the restaurant week menu to get people to try your best creations and want to come back. We won’t be back ourselves.

Our first time here was on a slow Tuesday night. Very cold outside and the front door didn’t stay shut so we were cold the whole time. Server was friendly but slow when she only had 2 tables to wait on. We finally went up to the bar to ask for our check. Food was ok but not great, burger overcooked.

This restaurant is good for large groups and had good local beers. The butternut squash soup was watery and had no flavor. I had to add a ton of salt and pepper to it to taste decent. Everyone else’s food looked pretty decent. The service was great and the restaurant ambiance is nice. Overall I would go back I just wouldn’t order the soup again.

Extremely well kept bar and restaurant, it was so clean I thought it was new when in fact it has been open for a few yeas. On nice weather days they open up the front garage door style windows and it makes for a nice open-air feel. The day my date and I visited we were greeted with a new menu which appeared to have a lot of the regular staples I saw on the website as well. I had a very delicious salmon with red curry that was nicely crisp yet juicy and the red curry was jut perfect. My girlfriend had a grilled chicken Caesar salad. The chicken was freshly hand-separated chicken breast and nicely roasted, the romaine was served full-leaf and was grilled as well.

Congratulations to the General Manager of 101. I made my reservation on OpenTable only to have it cancelled without explanation. I called 101 and a worker told me OpenTable should not have been accepting reservations on dates of Ravens home games. I understood. Later the GM called, apologized and offered to do whatever he could to seat us, so we went down. Because of heavy rain the place was less crowded than normal and the GM sat our group. The food and drinks were very good but the kitchen had a long delay in getting the entrees out. Before any complaint could be lodged, the GM apologized for the delay and, without being asked, made an appropriate reduction in our check. So while the kitchen service suffered on that day, the GM's service was outstanding. I will definitely go back and recommend it to others. It's really a bar with upscale interesting food and upscale interesting drinks. Nice find!

I was expecting just another bar with just another burger (or wings, or other bar food). What a pleasant surprise! The menu is much more interesting than most of the surrounding bars - sesame encrusted ahi tuna, avocado toast topped with cured salmon, Cajun shrimp and biscuits... We sampled 2 “quick bites”, one “medium” and one main, and enjoyed every dish. My favourite was the ahi tuna. My husband preferred his crab cake, and in particular the fantastic corn salsa that came with it. We were there on a rainy Monday night, so it was quiet, which I liked. I suspect it has a bit more of a party atmosphere closer to the weekend because of its location in the heart of bar territory, and some may prefer that. Service was very attentive. We’ll be back.
