Food and service were good. One of the better places in town, for sure.

While the ambience is nothing to rave about, the food was very good. Rack of lamb, Caesar Salad, Greek Salad, shrimp curry were all very tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Wine selection was adequate. 1424 is definitely one of the best places to eat in Waco. Recommended.

Harris and his family have created a warm, friendly, quiet, and elegant atmosphere in their red-brick walled dining room. Knotty pine also lines walls. I just love the ambiance. And Harris created this room himself! Harris offers specials like Chilean Bass. My personal favorites are the Lamb Shank or the Rack of Lamb. 1424 Bistro is located at 1424 Washington... More

1424 Bistro came highly recommended by a friend, but was a very disappointing dining experience. Way over priced for the quality of food and atmosphere. For a quality Mediterranean seafood platter, Tilapia should not be the primary fish. Fair service and a wobbly table. I've lived in other countries and states and I've never been compelled to write a review... More

The 1424 Bistro was recommended by local family & friends. All we can say is if you are from Waco or visiting this is one place you want to make a "MUST". Our weather was perfect for patio dinning adding a relaxing/romantic dinning experience to the most delicious dinner. Highly recommend the Greek house salad dressing, We had the Sea... More

We have eaten at 1424 many times and it just gets better. The presentation, the service, the food is always excellent. In addition I have hosted a dinner for 80 at this restaurant with great results! I highly recommend it!

This meal could have been great but it was rather loud in the building so conversing wasn't very easy and the preparation of our food wasn't what we asked for. My husband ordered the ahi tuna (market price was $36) and asked for it to just barely be kissed by the flames so pretty much rare...it was inedible because it... More

My wife and I decided to treat my folks to a nice dinner, knowing they would never do it for themselves. It's safe to say we would have had a better experience at, well, any of their favorite haunts (Denny's, Applebee's, El Chico) and would have paid a fraction of the price. We are from Houston but have lived overseas... More

We have always had great meals at 1424 and this was no different. We started off with the blue point oysters. They were very fresh, sweet and briny. I had the orange vermouth seared scallops. They were prepared just right and the rice pilaf is made even better with the sauce. She had the grilled red snapper filet. Fortunately, I... More

wonderfully prepared food, delicious, beautiful presentation. Service a little too slow, they need to train their waitresses to be a little more efficient. BUT well worth the extra time to wait if you are not in a hurry. We enjoyed our lunch and had a nice room to ourselves in the back. Fun place with the 10 of us it... More
