1921 Mount Dora is an award-winning restaurant in Mount Dora, Florida. We are allied with the famed Modernism Museum across the street from the restaurant. The menu reflects a forward thinking look at the bounty of ingredients and culinary traditions that surround us. Our unique location in the heart of Florida has strong influences from the diverse cuisines of Southern Florida as well as Southern traditions from Northern Florida. Mount Dora is surrounded by numerous outstanding farms just minutes away and is equidistant from our Gulf and Atlantic coasts, so we have access to some of the best produce, meat, and seafood Florida has to offer.

Outstanding! One of the nicest meals we’ve had lately. Drinks were wonderful and the service professional.

This place would be a regular event if we lived closer.

They were very busy, and we have eaten here many many times. We were not greeted at our table like usual, and it took a very long time to get appetizers and drinks, but overall the server did his very best to make our experience wonderful. The food was delicious!!

We love that the menu is always changing so every time we go it’s a different experience. What’s more impressive is with the changing menu the food still still consistently great. I mean all of the food from the apps to the entrees and desserts. That’s the sign of a truly great chef. It’s our new favorite restaurant and will visit frequently.

The service and ambience were excellent. The menu was strange - very strange. The prices were extremely high.

It's not somewhere I would ever go again.

We were delighted to see our favorite waiter Mason back at 1921. After more than a year away he returned. He is fantastic and such a professional.

1921 is quickly becoming one of our favorite locations to celebrate. The food is superb, the set is is attentive without hovering, and the drinks are always fantastic.

Had not been to Mt Dora in some time, and had not been to 1921 ever. Enjoyed the daily changing menu and the "unique" offerings for that particular day. Service was excellent and staff very helpful.

We can't believe the price of Filet Mignon $99. Ridiculous! No birthday dessert was provided. The server knew we were celebrating a birthday. The server was very nice.
Our previous visits to your restaurant was excellent but we were disappointed this time.

1921 offers a lovely dining experience. The outdoor historical look of the building and the interior modern decor provides a unique feel. The meal was delicious and our server Jamie was on point! She is professional attentive and courteous. Our only hiccup was that we were able to make online reservations at 1:45, however the kitchen closes at 2:00. Unfortunately we had guests coming from out of town joining us and they had difficulty finding parking and were running late. This presented a little bit of a challenge. My personal opinion is that they should not offer a 1:45 reservation time. (The bar does offer an abbreviated menu after 2, but this was not appropriate for our guests). Other than that it was a lovely dining experience.
