This is the place to go for a special dinner that is something out of the ordinary. The homemade guacamole with salsa and chips is a good way to start your meal. I had the lobster melt and it was yummy. I'm looking forward to going back again.

The quality of the service derails the flavor of the food. An unfortunate incident with reservations not honored will prevent me from ever patronizing 1201 again. It was a sad day for us, as we had always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Instead of an apology, we were treated rudely.

Amazing meal! Completely blown away by the subtle flavors and exquisite plating. This is truly a gem of a restaurant ... If you are in Erie you owe it to yourself to go. Sit at the bar and enjoy the company of the attentive staff.

1201 Kitchen offers eclectic contemporary fusion cuisine. The restaurant seems to be filled with "regulars" which is usually a good sign. My husband and I started with the guacamole and 2 salsas appetizer and the edamame appetizer. Served wih tortilla chips, the guacamole was fresh and tasty. We opted for the salsas that were milder.

Been there twice. As a weird customer, it is very important to me to eat something other than burgers. I loved everything I tried and the service was great.

When I saw the menu, I was a little concerned whether the fusion of Asian and Latin would work. It does and I highly recommend you seek 1201 kitchen out if you are in Erie. Four of us (and we consider ourselves foodies) dined at 1201 kitchen and had great food from start to finish. The wait for our entrees... More
