“Waste of Time”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

My girlfriend had family in town last weekend and they wanted to take us out for a dinner so we decided to try 101. My girlfriend and I had never been there so we figured why not. I called to make a reservation. They take reservations everyday except Friday (which was of course the night we were going) and if you're going on a night other than Friday, your party has to be 10 or more. So we got there at around 6:30 and put our name in. We were told 45 minutes to an hour. We went to the bar to wait for a table. An hour went by and still no table. We went and checked and were told by the hostess that no one is really getting up so it could be another half hour. We decided to order spinach dip at the bar and then split. It was good but not enough to keep us there for dinner. The hostess's didn't really care that no one could be seated. The bar tenders from what I could see were doing a good job although my girlfriends family didn't really like their mixed drinks.

There were a lot of people there but customer service needs to be higher on their list of priorities. If you want to try this place go on a random weeknight or before six on a weekend.

The food was good and the atmosphere was great. Service was fair. We had to wait 10 minutes to be seated while their was 8 open tables. Our drink order came out with our food but otherwise a good experience.

“A great place for young professionals”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The food is good, the staff is friendly, and they have a martini bar next door! A very mixed crowd because its not really affordable for college students.

“Mostly young crowd”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Food here is surprisingly good, although if you are over 30 you may feel a little out of place -- every time I've been there over 90% of the crowd were under 30. However, service was very good, the appetizers (the young tend to drink and eat appetizers) and the main dishes surprisingly good and reasonably priced. Worth a visit.
