Never disappointed, had the fresh Moi fish dinner. Wow, melted in your mouth with incredible flavoring! My wife had the grilled Scottish salmon equally impressed. Atmosphere and sevice impeccable! Can't wait to go back.

We went for my boyfriend's birthday and I must say that I was very impressed when the server, unprompted, brought out dessert with a lit candle! He must've overheard us talking and the gesture was appreciated! Overall, this is a very neat place; although I wouldn't order the prime rib 'filet' again, as it seemed to have an inordinate amount... More

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. They were also flavorful. The... More
