The waiter we had was very helpful in helping us make our dinner decision. Everything was very good, the pizza was not the best.

Just moved into the area from Texas, and was looking for a restaurant with great food and service. This place did not disappoint. I was so pleased that my husband and I returned for a second time and brought some friends with us.

We had dinner at 1921 on a Thursday night. Staffing seemed a little short, but predicting demand at this time is difficult. The food was amazing! The cheese and charcuterie plates were very good, particularly the house made charcuterie and the star of that plate, the chicken liver mousse. A surprise huge favorite of the night was the beef tongue. It was very tender and meaty - something beef tongue is not know for. The plantain gnocchi was tasty as well although a bit sweeter than I had been expecting. The 18oz dry aged prime rib eye was smoky, meaty, and tender. We had the crispy garlicky potatoes and - another surprise standout - braised white beans with ham and kale which was a smoky, rich umami delight. The leftover steak, potatoes, beans and blue cheese became part of a steak salad the second night with romaine lettuce and avocado ranch dressing. We finish with dessert - the tres leche cake and the cheesecake. Both were delicious. Prior to dinner we both had a cocktail - piranah and negroni. Both cocktails were tasty, and well balance despite being heavy pours. We also had two bottles of wine with dinner - bin 546 nibbiolo gattinara monsecco with the appetizers and bin 526 corvina Tommaso Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella with the steak. Both were good bottles that complemented the meal.

1921 is a must if you’re in the Mount Dora area. It’s not cheap, but dishes are well-composed and cooked. Service is excellent. They have a huge wine list and we were happy with our choice.

This is was my 5th time dining at 1921 - every time has been a great experience and I love Mt Dora! Fantastic food (good value), the craft cocktails are all great, the service is outstanding. If you live in the area and want to switch things up, head to Mt Dora and check out 1921. CB

I didn’t think the quality of the food was worth the price this visit. Cocktails were in the $15 range and very very small. We ordered the strip steak for $49. It was very charred on the outside.

Went out for our first time since COVID closings to celebrate my wife's March birthday. Sunday Supper is a good value, especially the wonderful prime rib which is usually available on the first Sunday of the month. Excellent service, dining room well spaced, felt very comfortable.

We had an overall pleasant experience. There were a few nuisances.....our table was not cleared of dirty dishes in between courses. I actually had to stack and put at the end of table to get attention to it. We had to grab the attention of our server for more cocktails, versus him checking in on us to see if we need anything. A restaurant of this quality I expected more.

We have so missed dining out period. We have also missed fine dining. 1921 has always been one of our favorites. Familiar faces to include our waiter, Brad. Professional, courteous and caring. Food way above average. Not inexpensive but well worth the price! Thanks guys, as always.

Would not recommend the French toast. It’s fried tiny pieces of sourdough bread with mushy apples. The milk buns were good. My friend had the fried chicken sandwich and she said it was not very good.
Nothing phenomenal about the service. The decor and setup of the restaurant is modern and funky.

I'm in Florida for several weeks only once a year, and every year I'm at, and excited by, this restaurant. Enough said? Well, I could add that this my first time for brunch, which proved to be as wonderful as the dinners I've enjoyed before. Moreover, though I nearly always have some meat or fish or poultry as part of every meal, this brunch offered such interesting vegetable dishes -- carrots and broccolini -- that I became a vegatarian...for one this meal. And it was wonderful.

We had a party of 16 and were treated really well. The only reason did not give 5 stars across the board is one of us had the ribeye steak and it was not good at all. No flavor to the meat and not a good cut of meat. He was pretty disappointed. I think everyone else was pleased with their meal and service.
