We started with the Saganiki flambe cheese which is a slice of Greek cheese between two rinds. The rind made the cheese tough especially when it cooled and the cheese tasted salty. My wife had Portobello Mushroom which was too cheesy for her taste. Our friend had Fettucine Alfredo which was... read more

After traveling through Waco about a million times on the way to either Dallas or Austin, we decided to actually stop and have a nice dinner in Waco. We had no idea where to go, but after researching places on-line, we came to the conclusion that the 1424 Bistro would be perfect. The setting is very comfortable and the staff... More

Legit. The whole package. Service quick, pleasant and attentive. Food is lovely, wine list is super long ( I'm not wine literate so i can't say if it's a great list, but lots of diners around us seemed to be enjoying their selections). Diverse menu, beef Wellington is greatness. Shrimp ettoufee is really good as well. Table side cheese flambe... More

One of Waco's best. The food is very good with great atmosphere. You can't go wrong with the 1424 Wellington. It is also a good spot for lunch

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 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 this place... More
