I met a friend here for a late lunch. The place wasn't very busy, so we sat at the bar. The bartender (Todd) was very pleasant and helpful. The bar is well stocked and the bar area is comfortable. The food was very good and it came out promptly. No complaints; very solid place to eat and/or drink.

After reading a number of Trip Advisor reviews complaining about poor-to-surly service I was leery about visiting this place, but did so on a recent Tuesday evening because of a discount offer. What I found was service that was quite attentive, pleasant, and efficient, suggesting that management has taken the criticism to heart. Food ranged from good to excellent, with... More

Food 101 has been a favorite for years. Being a fan of Manhattan cocktails, their barrel aged Manhattans are just what the doctor ordered! There are several varieties and all are delicious. They also have an extensive selection of premium spirits and excellent bartenders, if Manhattans aren't for you. The food is a combination of familiar and eclectic. I like... More

We had a new employee mixer here and it was very nice. I love the ambiance of the place and the food was very tasty. Servers were on their game too.

I had made a reservation anticipating they would be busy and they were. I thought with the prices being $ 46.00 per person I would be getting something special - this was not the case. The server Heather was great - right on it - pleasant personality. I went for the Thanksgiving meal. They served you an appetizer, you selected... More

ahi tuna salad at lunch - excellent. The dressing on the salad matches the tuna with precision, the greens are fresh, and the flavor of the tuna excellent! But, we had to find our waitress to order😏, I was prepared to go find her again to ask for some more water, and the hostess showed up with water, I found... More

Was looking for a good, quick lunch. Stopped at Food 101. We ordered the waffle of the day special with bacon and chocolate. Also the chicken and waffles. Food was very good, service not so much. If I had read the previous Trip Advisor reviews I would have known that the service would not be quick. And it wasn't. It... More

Honestly the food was five star (point deducted for service). Granted it was a busy Friday night but service did not only take a long time (literally everything was slow), it was very unfriendly. However the star was the food. I had the halibut which was excellent - seasoned and perfectly cooked. I could eat this everyday. For dessert the... More

this restaurant used to be one of the best along the northern corridor of Roswell Road, but has unfortunately gone way downhill. I ate there for lunch with a friend today and the place seemed relatively empty, the service disinterested at best and the food part tasteless and part just plain yucky. My friend had crabcakes that looked more like... More
