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.

    Our waitress was wonderful and attentive. My friend loved her cocktail. Our brunch was great I know it’s odd to complain the portion was to bug for the omelette. Little things it is loud in the returns but it’s natural with high ceilings and wood floors. The chairs are beautiful but so heavy you cannot move them. We will definitely be back though.

    We went with friends from out of town. We had gathered for our 50th high school reunion. We went because it was Magical Dining month. We ate off the Magical Dining menu and they did regular menu. Everything was prepared well and generous portions.

    Love 1921 - enjoy trying new entrees and appetizers. Had the venison - not a fan but at least I tried it. Service and attention to details is excellent. Definitely worth the 30 minute drive. As far as Mt Dora area, IMHO, 1921 is the best dining establishment.

    Chelsea was a very pleasant and knowledgeable server. We were seated where all four of us could hear each other quite clearly for the meeting . Everyone really enjoyed their meals. The only downside was the limited dessert selection. The prices are on the high side . Lovely experience overall

    We were siting at the bar area. The table and the bench weren’t the most comfortable seating, but this got all made up for with the excellent food we enjoyed. The chicken pâté was delicious, the venison to die for and the Creme brûlée heavenly. We were really happy with our food and the service was outstanding too.

    Another stellar Magical Dining at 1921 in Mt Dora. This place is always perfection all around. From the check in to the service to the food and the wine pairings. Our table had the oysters Rockefeller and the raw oysters. Both were very much enjoyed. We had the pumpkin soup, the pate and the salad. These were all great but the pate really surprised me as I typically am not keen to try something like that. It was so flavorful and the jelly complimented it perfectly. The soup was creamy, fresh and quite interesting. Really delicious. For the entrees, we tried all of them - the duck leg was the clear winner. It was crispy on the outside and tender inside. The venison was incredible too. It was cooked to a medium temperature and melted in my mouth. The risotto was enjoyed as well. I would get these again if we came back. We had the chocolate ganache and Crème Brûlée for dessert. Superb ending to our meal. Given this is a pricey restaurant, it was an exceptional value too.

    Table next to us was drunk and loud, overall not a quiet atmosphere, but it somehow didn’t detract from the experience. My wife and I were there to laugh and reconnect so it fit the mood. I would not make it a choice for a quiet romantic meal. But the food was sublime. The service was fantastic if overall frenzied. But we caught a great sunset after the restaurant, had great food, and overall superb evening.

    We went with another couple during Magical Dining and it was beyond fantastic! I'm not sure if the venison is on the regular menu or if that was something special for Magical Dining but it was the best I've ever had. The roast duck leg was outstanding I'm not a big mushroom fan, but the person who ordered mushroom rissoto was happy too! Appetizers, drinks, service, presentation. All top notch. Highly recommend

    We did present a challenge. Our reservation was for 10 people and we had a walk in at the last minute. It took several minutes to seat all 11 of us. The service was very uneven. Plates were delivered to incorrect diners. One plate was easily 25 minutes late. Although that diner was comped her meal, she was sitting there for along time while others were eating. We created a plate for her from other diner's dishes but that was not the same as getting her own meal. Several people ordered the fish and chips (as did the unserved diner) and commented that it was the best they had ever had. I ordered the pate' starter and was expecting a soft paste treat but it was congealed and hard. Several of us had eaten there before and we agreed that this experience was anomalous, albeit disappointing.

    The food was very good. It came out a bit too fast but that was probably the server's fault. The desk and serving staff were all smiles but not at all at the stature of the quality of the food/restaurant. The server interrupted our conversation EVERY time he came to the table. That's Outback and Olive Garden level. And there's no one training him or the front podium staff.

    I ordered from the 3 course special menu offered during the summer- it was very reasonably priced and offered good variety. I started with the pate which was excellent, among the best I’ve had. I followed with the Red Snapper (an up charge but worth it). It had a hollandaise sauce that while good, was a little much. I used it sparingly on the fish and it was good. It was served with a side that was yummy and the sauce for the dish contained smoked whole cherry tomatoes that were tasty. I ordered the crème brûlée but after the first 2 excellent courses found it disappointing. Texture was fine but the taste was blah (maybe needed more vanilla?). The waitress (who was the star of the evening, attentive, and fun to briefly chat with) brought another dessert without me asking for it (I was willing to skip after such a good meal) but the Salted Caramel Ganache was sinful and very rich and it was very nice of her to bring it. Someone like her can really make an experience the best. Thank you!

    Though they acknowledged our anniversary night, they presented nothing during the evening. BD candles on desserts for others were obvious. No bread or rolls were offered as part of the dinner though we both had soup. The entrees were delicious, the portions of starch and veggie were skimpy. Consequently, it was not as satisfying an evening as it could have been and as expected.
