this was the 3rd time we went there for dinner. First time was great. Loved the food and service was great. 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

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

Not the best restaurant in the world but not bad by any means. I was a bit hesitant to go since last time I was there it was not that good, but this time the food was tasty and well prepared. I had a steak and my husband had a fish dish. His was better but it was because I... More

Met friends there for the Sunday brunch and was not disappointed. The service was good, the mimosas were great, and the food was "damn good" according to my husband, which is HIGH praise coming from him. My husband had the Navajo Tacos which he swears is the best taco he's ever had and I had the Breakfast Fried Rice which... More

Restaurant is quite well decorated very urban, and trendy. food was better than expected, and the service was remarkably efficient considering they had several big parties, mostly girl parties. the place turned into a full blown club quite busy for a tuesday night, a lot of young people. I had a great time
