Atmosphere

This is our favorite restaurant in Erie. The atmosphere is excellent and perfect for a night out as a couple or with friends. Sushi always hits the spot and is fresh. The entrées are always inventive and delicious. Drink selection is perfect. Recommend to anyone.

1201 is a cool bar with great food. Super bartender Chris makes unique cocktails that are delicious and unusual. Great sushi and tacos!

I am not a newbie to this restaurant, every meal I have here is amazing! Never go home complaining. And always suggest it to others as a place for a great experience. Tonight I just have to write about the superb treatment we received from everyone working. It was a sister's birthday and one that will be talked about for... More

I love this place and had a superb experience with the Bar Manager previously - great meal, wonderful drinks, and enjoyable chatter. Next visit, disaster! The man tending bar was filterless, had no interest in my happiness, and his mouth didnt stop flapping from the moment I arrived till the moment I departed. The conversations he was in sighting were... More

Have always enjoyed the chef's creativity. One night I came in for the happy hour appetizer specials and all contained meat. Dang I'm a pescatarian.....no problem, the chef whipped up some fab sushi. Always looking to please.

My boyfriend are not from this area, and are in town for the weekend as a quick getaway. We were looking for someplace for dinner and came across this establishment. We happened to follow another couple going to the same place. As we were waiting we heard that they had placed a reservation and we're promptly seated. The establishment had... More

My husband and I popped in to 1201 for lunch a month ago and I have to say it was really nice and refreshing as a change of pace. I had the short rib ramen dish as a half portion and it was just the right amount. I loved the flavors and was so impressed. My husband had a lunch... More

Some friends and I stopped in for lunch the other day and overall I would say it was pretty good. The atmosphere is a bit confusing because of their fusion vibe but basically pleasant. We went on a Tuesday which meant that because we sat in the bar area, we were each given two free tacos. Which were great. For... More
