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

The manager was engaging and helped us pick small plates for a light dinner. The calamari and coconut lamb chops were both excellent. Highly recommended!

Second time we made reservations and when we showed up early to have drinks we where never told about their limited menu that night. Their limited menu didn't include anything we wanted to have. This last visit was our... More

Fried Green Caprese Salad 10.00 - decent portion size for the price - not much taste to the dish - filler food Tuna Tartar - again decent portion size and pieces of raw sushi grade tuna appeared to have more fat then they should and average taste - nothing special 101 Filet - their most expensive entree on the menu...

A bit pricey for average food. We were looking for more flair since it is in the downtown district and in competition with Mark's Prime etc. The atmosphere is boring and the seating is uncomfortable. Good for the college student night out. Would like to see more Gluten Free - Dairy free options. Needs more pizazz in the food.

I love their sweet potatoe fries. Best I have had by far anywhere! You certainly want to be dressed nice for this place though.

A lot of people have told me about 101 and how the nightlife was great, and than i was introduced to their dining scene. I brought my fiancé here last saturday and the ambiance alone sold us at the door. We ordered the Brazilian Bourbon Coffee Strip, and the pistachio crusted south pacific tuna, the absolute best meal i've ever... More

My wife, father-in-law, cousin and myself visited in August for my birthday dinner. The martinis were well made. The Brazilian Bourbon Coffee Strip was a nice cut and cooked to a perfect medium rare. The Pomegranate Duck was excellent. The seafood pasta looked very good. Great service despite being very loud. One "gripe" that we are still laughing about: we... More
