Best meal in long time

This place has more good reviews than bad but my experience wasn't so good. I called and made reservations and was told earliest available would be 8 pm but when we got to the restaurant there wasn't very many people inside and lots of open tables. The appetizers came out right away but the meals took about an hour to... More

Love the food here. Don't always like eating in the dining area unless I'm with a group of 5 or more. I prefer, and recommend, eating at the kitchen/chef bar at the plating station in the basement. You get to see everything being made, and decide what entree you want while you eat your hors d'oeuvres. Having eaten here and... More

My husband took me to 1201 as a surprise a few weeks. He had never been and knew that it is a favorite spot of mine! It is now a favorite spot for him as well. We can't wait to go back. I love their pork belly sushi!

Love love love this restaurant. Always been a favorite of mine and always upholds its reputation. Steak is outstanding-melts in your mouth. Drinks are delish. Atmosphere is great. A little expensive for Erie but well worth it.

This place was wonderful. Everything I tried was delicious (Guac, Salmon Sushi, Hash, Kobe Beef, and Swordfish). It really surprised me to find such an inventive place in Erie. Well done. My only complaint was that it took a very long time for each course to come out. Our waiter said the restaurant prizes itself on the slow meal. Well,... More

This is a great spot in Erie. More upscale than most -- it's decor is modern and nice. We had a great waiter; Dennis and found all of our entrees and drinks to be excellent. I had the salmon and the finish was very tasty. All of my business partners enjoyed their meals also. I am a fan of lemon... More
