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

My husband and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at 1424. Our waiter was wonderful and very accommodating. He knew the menu well. This was not our first visit to 1424, but we haven't been there in several months. The steak I ordered was perfectly cooked and my husband was very pleased with the fish. They offer a variety of...

My family of five ate here with another family when moving our kids into Baylor in August. The restaurant was almost empty, it took forever to order, the service was terrible and very, very slow considering there was very few people in the restaurant. There was a $6.50 upcharge for a side substitution and the food while decent, was not... More

Nice decor and ambiance perfect for a couple. Great food and wine. A nice date place in Waco. Although Mediterranean style, it is not just that. The owner/chef is from Greece (as I recall) but the menu is not just Greek. It is a wide variety of meats and fish done in a variety of preparations with a Mediterranean flare.

This is a quiet hidden Mediterranean style restaurant. This restaurant offers excellent service and it offers a selection of wines to go with your meal. It has a romantic atmosphere or you can eat out on the patio, weather permitting. It is a hidden gem located on Washington Ave. almost across the street from St. Mary's Church. Every plate I...
