Have had several marvelous meals at 1201. The food is truly extraordinary. For a fun experience, book a seat in the kitchen so you can see each dish prepared. I've tried some dishes that I wouldn't normally select based on seeing them first. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but it's worth every dollar. You won't be disappointed! They also... More

The steak was cooked medium rare plus to perfection. The sushi was very tasty. Next time I'll make a reservation and not sit at the bar. Excellent cocktail menu too.

My wife and I and another couple tried the1201 on the Erie Fine Dining card; it's BOGO for an entrée. Our waiter, Dennis, was one of those smug, know it alls; for instance, he greeted us with, " welcome, newbies," even though we've eaten there many times before. When asked to bring a box for leftovers, he said that he'd... More

Usually take my team here for drinks once a month. The bar staff is great and has a unique martini menu. The sushi menu is awesome - must get the Kobe and the guacomole. This place is always a hit!!

1201 has been a favorite of ours for years. It is so well known among our family as a favorite that a gift certificate to 1201 is a go-to birthday gift. The menu is eclectic, changes with the seasons and never disappoints. The execution is routinely very good. We've had some of the best meals we've ever had in Erie... More

Last evening we went to 1201 for the first time. Being experienced gourmet cooks, we don't eat out all that often because we make such great meals at home. We decided to go to 1201 for our 44th wedding anniversary because the place has been recommended by so many people and we love sushi. Both the quality of the food... More

Last night we has drinks and dinner at 1201 Kitchen. It was an a wonderful experience. This was not our first time at this restaurant, so we knew what to expect.
