Great place

The food here has always been good and innovative. The atmosphere is low lights and moderately noisy, depending upon how crowded it is, nice little bar. A great place to go.

My Fiancé and I came here with some friends that raved about this place. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our server was friendly and attentive. Their special that night was a Vietnamese dish. Lucky us because we are Vietnamese. We ordered 3 appetizers, 4 entress and 2 desserts. I had the trout, which I highly do not recommend... More

Pork belly dumplings to die for - and the fennel bisque was amazing. Best part of the night might have been a tie between the mango pepper martini and the fantastic service courtesy Dennis! We had a great time at Gaffigan, Dennis - and were not too late even with the desserts! :)

Every meal, every appetizer and every experience I've had with 1201 has been amazing. They always have a great beer on tap, and the food exceeds expectations. If you have the ability to plan ahead and reserve seats in the kitchen - it's a must! Best experience ever, watching every dish cooked and plated. Top notch!

The best food you can find in Erie. Still one of my favorite places to eat no matter where you have been. Love the sushi and all the great dishes. Never had a bad dinner.

A friend had often mentioned Taco Tuesdays at 1201 Kitchen. I was expecting the usual. Wow, was I surprised! She prefers the sushi bar, so we sat there. A waiter came to us, got our dink orders and asked what type of tacos we would like. Yes, they give you a choice, and make them on demand. It seems the... More

It's rare that I get to have an appetizer, tasty entree, AND dessert at a restaurant since I have Celiac. I have officially tried chilean sea bass! :D

We have been here for lunch and dinner to base our reviews off of. We also consider ourselves amateur foodies always looking for another great place to eat where they know what good food is suppose to taste like. The 1201 kitchen is one of those places. I read some of the other reviews good and bad to see what... More
