Great jazz on Wednesday

Drinks and jazz. A bit pricey, but not too far off the downtown range. High quality dining experience and signature drinks, including an extensive mojito menu. Small dining area, so dine in early or call for a reservation.

I went with a group of friends to 101 for a friend's birthday (we had reservations). It took a long time to get our food, I felt like they were pushing us to drink and it is expensive for what you get for food. By the end, the staff were straight up removing tables and chairs from our group before... More

Loved Rockey's Dueling Piano Bar and Sweet Mel's. We were there for a family wedding so those were the only two places we really had time to visit but the downtown area looked really neat.

I went in the other day with my family to eat. Very trendy, attractive staff, and surprisingly affordable for the quality of food. The manager was great and made us feel like regulars, although it was our first visit. I will definitely be going back.

101 Downtown is like a 5 star restaurant from NY or Paris being dropped into Downtown Gainesville. Food was amazing and atmosphere is top shelf.

This is a great little spot downtown, where you can enjoy a nice brunch, lunch or dinner and then stroll along the brick-paved sidewalks and enjoy the perfect weather and quaint shops. 101 DOWNTOWN offers an eclectic menu with a few unusual and delicious items while progressive music plays overhead. The Crab Benedict is delicious and is topped with the... More

I too read previous reviews but as the birthday lady suggested it, I made a 730 reservation. We arrived at 7 and sat at the bar. We were the only patrons as the Gator game was at home! We just missed happy hour which is 5 to 7 but I was pleased with my martini and our bartender was knowledgeable... More

Had heard both good and bad reviews. Checked it for a birthday dinner, loved it. Great bartenders, the waiter was on his game and new the food. Definitely will come back whenever I'm in town.
