We were seated in the corner of the bar. It was early and the restaurant was almost empty. The menu look quite expensive ($34 for chicken entree), but we did not mind because we were hungry. We waited almost fifteen minutes and not one person came over. We finally got tired of waiting so we left. I can't attest to the food because we did not have a chance to order, but obviously the service was terrible.

Kathi, thank you for the review. We are incredibly sorry you had a poor experience. That is not like us and after reviewing the camera footage we are ashamed of the circumstances. We would like to invite you back to the restaurant to have dinner on us, if you would oblige? Please give us a call next week if you would like to set something up, ask for Adam, our General Manager. Our service team is most excellent and we would love the opportunity to prove that to you!

The ONLY thing we wished…was for the staff to be wearing masks. Grateful we were sat alone in an empty dining room. When the manager asked us if we would like to move closer to the other patrons instead of being 'awkward and lonely' I happily responded, 'We prefer to be awkward and lonely. We'll stay RIGHT here."

Tomato app presentation and flavors spot on! Service outstanding and attentive. Entree of medium venison was a little undercooked. However, flavors on plate were amazing, creative and brilliant. Thanks for allowing splitting of app and entree. It’s not about price, for me it’s about healthful portion sizes

Wine list outstanding and fairly priced

Upscale modern artsy environment, thoughtful menu. I actually could see part of the kitchen in the distance and the gentleman I watched worked swiftly but with great intent. He was communing with each dish he created. It was meditative to watch. I got the lamb shank and thought it was delicious.

1921 was a great experience on a December 31th, late dinner. With locsl sourced ingredients, Chef Chris Edwards achieve wonderful results. Impressive dish: Foie gras, perfectly cooked with a mix of secret flavors which brings you all the way to Dordogne.
As an main course, The Flounder was an excellent selection, fresh, crispy, tasty, perfect with a Chardonnay. I have to say that The 1921 Old Fashioned was executed precisely. Finally the service is very gentle, with the right knowledge of what they are servicing. 1921 is a must if you go to Mount Dora

We were looking for a different place to eat for New Years. This place did not disappoint. The food was delicious and made to my wife’s and I liking. We both enjoyed the Filet Minion over some mash potatoes. We brought our two kids (9&12), they both had the hamburger.

Creative use of ingredients leading to a lovely visual plate lacking seasoning and flavor.

First time visiting 1921 and the food was outstanding. My venison was very tender and complemented very well by the beets. Our server was Corey and he too did an excellent job. Would definitely return.

NYE dinner was perfect! We decided on the filet and potatoes which was a delicious choice. The restaurant was clean and the ambiance was fantastic. Our server Brett was also very knowledgeable and kind.
Will definitely be returning to experience other menu options.

Spent NYE there for dinner! We started with roasted oysters which were delish! On to Pork belly and then coffee crusted venison and lamb! Just all of it was amazing. Brett was our server and was perfect. Made nice recommendations and visited us at the table just enough times. Thanks 1921 for a great night!

We went for an early dinner for New Years. We did feel a little rushed, but I’m sure it was because of the big crowds expected for the holiday. The food was amazing. Our server was awesome and we will definitely go back on a normal business day! It was by far the best meal I’ve had in Mount Dora!!

Our starter was excellent and perfect for sharing. The wine list was great, and we found just what we wanted. The entrees had the WOW factor for sure and the dessert was to die for, pared with the ice wine. Our server had the genuine touch. We can't wait till next time.
