    I highly recommend this restaurant, we went to eat with our freshly married children and the place looked fabulous. Very nice dining room and the wait staff was very knowledgeable and courteous. The meal was prepared perfectly and seasoned just right. The atmosphere was semi formal and allowed us to all talk and eat without loud conversations going on around us. Great place, great staff and great food! If you want classy with intimate dinner time to talk and enjoy your friends or family I recommend Restaurant 151.

    I've eaten a lot of shrimp and grits in my life but none were as good as what I had at Restaurant 151. That dish was excellent! In fact, the entire dining experience was excellent. Anyone who hasn't eaten at Restaurant 151 is missing out.

    Father’s Day brunch, first time to this restaurant. Beautiful atmosphere. I ordered the fish special. It came missing the side dish, apparently they ran out. I should have sent it back and ordered something different.

    We had another terrific meal here on Saturday night. This time we decided we were going to try things we hadn't before. We started with two appetizer specials - Steak Tartare and Watermelon Salad. Both were delicious and each appetizer was certainly big enough to split between two people. That was followed by a small portion of Shrimp and Grits for me and Seared Scallops for my husband. The entrees were wonderful, great flavors and well proportioned. This was capped by Blueberry Bread Pudding. The wine list is solid with a variety of choices and range of prices. We were lucky enough to have David once again as a server. He is friendly and knowledgeable. A large party celebrating an 80th birthday (go you!) made for an elevated noise level at times. We walked away knowing we will be back again soon!

    We went back because we had a great experience the first time we ate here just two weeks ago. Todays meal was very disappointing. The watermelon salad was very good. Lack of flavor in the mussels. Scallops were fishy. Lobster dish was just okay.

    A spectacular evening!!! Chef Richard Farr does an outstanding job. Everything we had was amazing (Caesar salad, French onion soup, NY Strip, mashed potatoes, shrimp pasta, cheesecake). I think the French onion soup was one of the best I've ever had and I lived in Paris for 6 months! We love the ambiance. It's such a great and interesting space. It's quiet and easy to have a conversation which seems to be near impossible to find anymore. The background music was great and at the right volume. The service was good, but wasn't outstanding like every thing else was. Two things that could be improved - adding a more diverse beer selection and a full bar would be great. It was our first visit, but won't be our last. We have already told several neighbors this is a must try - soon to be a favorite - neighborhood restaurant. Can't wait to go back!

    It is rare that a restaurant lives up to the hype…. 151 does. And not just the food - the ambiance, ample space between tables, the friendly and talented service, easy parking - everything comes together to make this a dining experience - not just a dinner out. And we found the pricing incredibly reasonable for what you received! Every single item was prepared perfectly. Perhaps not identically to what you’re used to - but delicious none the less. Step out and try something new - you won’t be sorry. (Like Pressed Watermelon Salad with Burrata Cheese - have never seen that combo, but absolutely delish). Save room for dessert (and you can share them) def worth it. Our waiter (David) was knowledgeable and personable. Chef came out to speak with guests. And - they had even read - and remembered - the comments we added to our reservation from OpenTable!

    This is Anderson's real fine dining experience. The Chef is amazing and creative, and pairs his food beautifully. For brunch, I had soft shell crab benedict. It was amazing and he has a bottle of wonderful rose champagne the name of which escapes me.

    Restaurant 151 is superb in every regard. The atmosphere is beautiful and lends itself perfectly for a special celebration or dinner. Richard Farr, accomplished chef/owner, always comes around the dining room to speak to his guests and to inquire about their meal. His shrimp and grits are a culinary triumph and not to be missed. Restaurant 151 will not disappoint!!!

    I have eaten here about 6 times in the last 2 months. Every time the food is terrific and the service very good. Their menu is seasonal and is changing this month. (May) The restaurant is warm, inviting and quiet. They do not have a bar but serve wine with some decent choices. Prices are decent for dinner around $25-$33 depending on what you order. Chef Richard Farr's short rib and braised lamb shank are terrific. The chicken and waffles for Sunday brunch are a family favorite. If you are looking for a very nice meal that is reasonably priced, with a warm atmosphere, then 151 will not disappoint you!
