    Food was outstanding. Drinks were excellent and reasonably priced. Atmosphere was unique but very nice. Only issue was it was very loud. A suggestion to put sound dampening decorative materials would greatly enhance the overall dining experience. Will DEFINITELY return again

    This is a beautiful restaurant - amazing locally sourced ingredients prepared with beautiful imagination and TASTY! The blue grits and shrimp are simply the best ever. The restaurant has a beautiful feel - surrounded by unique and varied artwork. So happy to have found this place last year when travelling to the area - we returned TWICE on this year's trip. Great experience.

    I had read all kinds of great reviews about this restaurant, and they were true as posted, outstanding food. The set menu for Thanksgiving was delicious. Absolutely the best turkey I’ve ever had in my life and I was a big fan of the butternut squash soup. All that being said, I did think the price was excessively high. Never having been there before I would like to go back during a non-holiday and see if the prices are still as high, I imagine the food is of equal quality all year around.

    We had our Thanksgiving dinner here. It was traditional with an innovative spin. The food was excellent and the wait staff were a delight… It is rare today to find a place with a sufficient number of experienced wait staff so that they can actually be attentive and enjoy what they do. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

    We chose this restaurant for our Thanksgiving dinner, because it had received good reviews We were given a reservation seating outside which was fine, but we waited over 20 minutes for a server to arrive. Our guest who joined us for dinner had to go into the restaurant and question the hostess. We eventually were greeted by our server, who turned out to be wonderful. It was a $72 price fixed meal which did not include dinner rolls or a bread basket, non-alcoholic beverage or coffee with dessert. The soup was delicious, but not hot. The turkey meal servered was also luke warm, leaning cold. It was our first time dining at this restaurant and our last. The food did not meet our expectations, nor the cost charged.

    Our family had our 2022 Thanksgiving dinner at 1921, it was delightful! It was a set menu, price was fair ($72 pp) especially for the amount of food served. All the plated items- appetizers, main course & dessert - were locally sourced, organic and beautifully presented. So delicious as well. The Black Dahlia cocktail was phenomenal. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and prompt. The interior atmosphere was so inviting, creativity decorated in all the dining rooms & the bar area. This was our first visit to 1921, and it won’t be our last! Bravo - well done!!

    Food, meal, service - excellent. However, when I booked, the menu said that Tanksgiving dinner was $55.00. When we got there, we were handed a menu saying that the meal was $72.00! Not wanting to make a scene, we stayed and enjoyed ourselves. But it feels almost like a bait and switch deal. I don’t think I would have booked it if I had known the price was that high.

    Every single item we ordered / appetizers, salads, entrees and even desserts were mediocre. Nothing was amazing. Corn dog - meh / steak - meh / beet salad - meh. Service was slow - took over 30 min to fill up water, struggled to remove plates from table to make room for other plates. Would not revisit. Better restaurant choices for the price.

    I brought my father and his girlfriend for the first time to your restaurant and the chicken entrée was ordered and was sent back to the kitchen twice because it was over cooked and tough. However, our server was fantastic and of course this is not a fault of hers.

    We have enjoyed the food at 1921 several times. Unfortunately there were a few hiccups with our last visit. We ordered drinks... which the waiter forgot to put in the order... I finally received my glass of wine but they did not deliver my husbands cocktail... said they were out of Gin... really. He ordered a different cocktail and that took a long time to get delivered. We were already half way through dinner when it was delivered. The only compensation was that they comped the drink. On a positive note... The yeast rolls, Steak and Snapper entree were outstanding. Just pass on desserts... our table tried the s'mores, cheesecake, corn pudding. Average at best... not worth the calories. Overall the meal and service was enjoyable.

    On this visit, food was not as good overall. Out of the three of us, none of us were wowed by what we received. And, the 'salad' situation was ridiculous and left such a bad impression. The menu advertised an arugula salad with burrata. It arrived with two pieces of arugula - literally. I asked for more arugula and a plate was delivered with about 8 pieces of arugula. Seemed they were out of arugula for the arugula salad so I asked for any greens, spring greens or spinach, whatever was available to go with the hunk of burrata cheese. I was informed that the chef said No and that it was not possible to accommodate me, but I could order a spring salad if I wished. Ridiculous service! Completely turned me off this place! Our waiter avoided us after this also even though we were three girls who laughed it off. We had ordered wine, appetizers, one ordered an expensive steak, and more yet we could not be given any greens for a 'salad' that was ordered. I think I am done going to this restaurant when in Mount Dora! All three of us left disappointed and would not recommend.

    We have dined at 1921 on multiple occasions for dinner and it has been excellent. We decided to try the weekend brunch this visit. While the atmosphere, service, both presentation and portion sizes of the food were excellent, I do have to say some of the food was disappointing. The breakfast potatoes tasted like they were not cooked fresh and the soft scrambled eggs were just undercooked scrambled eggs. BUT, I am a breakfast food snob and have high expectations 😬 I love this restaurant and I will give the brunch another try. I would also like to add that in my opinion this is the best and nicest restaurant around our area in central florida and if you haven’t been here, you absolutely must give it a try. It is a real treat!
