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.

Great place! We decided not to cook for Thanksgiving, since it was the just the 2 of us. The menu was cut and 1921 was only offering a special course for Thanksgiving. The food was on point! The turkey breast was moist and succulent, and the rest of the plate was amazing. The “wine book” offered anything and everything a wine drinker would want. We chose a nice Pinot Noir from France. Our waiter was very personable and knowledgeable. This definitely a place that you don’t want miss. We will be back in the near future.

Went in a Sunday. So nice and quiet. My wife and I sat at the bar. Only one more couple and a single came in. Food was great and the drinks were amazing! Don’t expect it that slow. We’ve been there when it’s really busy. It was such a nice atmosphere that was unexpected.

Wonderful service, amazing flavor in the food and drink... The spacing of tables allowed us to have a regular volume conversation and not interfere with others; other conversations did not interfere with our table either... Absolutely Delightful!

My husband and I had a great bottle of wine, and greatly enjoyed their milk buns. The duck entree was very good, and cooked as ordered. We added a side of carrots, also good, and crispy potatoes. These were quite vinegar tasting. The shrimp appetizer was less desirable. Slight chlorine taste, as well as heavily paprika. Would not order again. Ordered this with a side of grits, these also were less desirable. Very coarse, lacked flavor. Weird to have corn mixed in with them. Considering this was a $140 meal, we probably wouldn't return for dinner service. We've had brunch here, which was delicious. It's a great stop for drinks. I believe there is better food options in downtown Mount Dora. If you like an eclectic flavored menu, I'm sure you'd enjoy it.

Cocktails and quail were outstanding, filet was chewy and undercooked (sent back 2 times) but veggies were perfect and cheesecake was heavenly! Will return but skip the filet!

This was our first time going here, and we visited the last week of Magical Dining. I was so impressed! The decor was eclectic, the tables were nicely spaced out, and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Our server Chris was fantastic. He made outstanding suggestions, and never made us feel rushed even though we were taking a bit longer having a toddler with us. We are already talking about going back on a weekend to try out the lunch menu. Fantastic experience.

Everyone we talked to in town highly recommended and raved about 1921. But it was lackluster. I will say the cheese board was phenomenal. The cook on the duck and pork chop were perfect but the pork could have used more sauce. The carrots with the duck were great. The sides I had which were the brussel sprouts and white beans lacked seasoning and were under cooked. Not sure if they were under staffed or if our server was just super busy but we felt like he was always rushing and too busy to check in on us even though we saw attending to other tables. Overall our experience was just mediocre which was disappointing since we had such high hopes for this place.

The Sunday Supper Ropa Veija was delicious, Umami as the Japanese would say. The wine pairing was superb
Jumilla Cabernet and the key lime pie for dessert was outstanding. Good value for money. We will do more Sunday Suppers.

Older lady at hostess stand was a bit rude and unaccommodating. Filet great and so was the brussel sprouts. Short ribs were awful. acorn squash was also tasty. Waiter was a bit odd. We would request something and he said nothing and would walk away. Left us wondering if he even heard us... like I said...food was pretty good but because of the rude staff I won't be back. customer service is key during these times

Wife and I split the Ribeye and the Kale Salad. The atmosphere was elegant with interesting art pieces all around. Feels more winter park than lake county. No kids menu which was a bummer. However the the steak and salad were delicious and the service was just right.
