Came during a very busy time selected menu

We were in town for a wedding so we came the night before to dine but it happened to be Baylor graduation. We sat outside. The service took a very long time even for drinks. Finally after three bottles of wine and waiting our food came out. It wasn't worth the wait. I was really looking forward to... read more

Unbeatable french food in Waco. The ffod is always excellent, and and service is usually pretty good pretty good. The ambiance leaves a little bit to be desired, but hey.... also, not priced out of this world. If you take a group there, they have a samll back room, seats about 20 or so that give you a private setting.... More

1424 is my wife and I's go-to place for date nights and special occasions. This time we dined here for our anniversary. We started off by splitting a grilled stuffed portobello mushroom. This thing was plenty for two people and covered in cheese. My wife ordered her favorite dish - Seared Orange Roughy - and I ordered Tilapia Monica. This... More

We love going here for a grown up, out to dinner, date night experience. We've had great experiences with the service and the food. Decent wine list and good food! The atmosphere is great for couples or a friends night out! Great place to go in downtown Waco!

Decor was good, but food was great! Had a very attentive waiter named Chris, who got drink orders out fast. While sipping on wine, out came the bread, then the salads and right after the main course, which was wonderful! From start to finish we were there just under hour and half. Perfect meal, friendly and personable waiter. Will be... More

The food is great - well above par and service is quick - especially if you are lucky enough to get a server by the name of Mianca (she is simply amazing). Try the stuffed avocados - they are to die for.

Excellent food and service. The restaurant has mostly seafood dishes, but also steak, pork, lamb and chicken. The wine and cocktail list was good as well. We had shrimp scampi and curried scallops. Both were well prepared and arrived quickly.
