Nice bourbon list, but they didn't have the one I ordered.

Food and service was amazing! My colleague came from downtown and I traveled from north Gwinnett county - found this place on Opentable and decided to give it a go. So glad I did! Next time we hit Chastain, we will absolutely check out 101!

The food was very good, but it was quite loud and lacked the ambience we enjoy on a date night.

Menu had limited choices and the quality of the food was terrible. My salad had not one green leaf in it. Our chicken wings were incredibly dry. The burger was dry, the crab cakes that cost $28 were clearly not fresh and mushy. Wine was good, bread was great. The service was rushed and we were not informed of all the specials. Then to top it off, the manager came and lurked over our table and coughed and sneezed. When we left it smelled of smoke. Not our style of restaurant. We will not return.

The food was decent but not great. Wait Service was quick and not as friendly as it should have been. Issue with the beer selection. Was out of my 1st four options and didn’t seem to care. They were transitioning from draft to bottle beer so not much available.

I made a reservation for Valentine's Day because the special menu looked interesting. But our experience was subpar at best. Although I noted on the reservation that my wife is gluten-free, the waiter acted surprised when I asked for a recommendation. We were sat in the middle of the restaurant and although other guests were offered their preference of tables, we were not. Our waiter was nice, but it took over 10 minutes for him to arrive at our table, because apparently the waitress who was supposed to be serving us forgot we were her table. Probably because they added this table in the middle of the restaurant for Valentines Day. But worst of all, the food is just not good. My crab cakes tasted like mush. The puree that came with her scallops tasted like cardboard. We later found out that the head chef has only been with the restaurant for 6 months and probably should have offered a limited menu for the holiday since he clearly was not accustomed to Preparing these meals. The restaurant has apparently been around for almost 20 years, but it sounds like they have gone through several chefs and if our one experience is indicative of the norm, I wholeheartedly would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.

Very disappointing. The waiter recommended the scallops. They were served on something that was ice cold. The scallops were not even warm. The plate was disappointing.
We were rushed through the meal. Almost had to hold onto our silverware to finish.

Charcuterie plate was very strange and only had two types of meat and the cheeses were unrecognizable. Food was also not very tasty and we couldn't finish our meals.
