121 Restaurant has been serving the North Salem and the larger Westchester Community since 1999. Our chef mandates the use of local, organic, and sustainable products, never compromising quality. The simplicity and bold flavors of our dishes stimulates a culinary driven dialogue between diners, allowing them to find their common ground through food. 121’s menus hold no allegiance to any one cuisine or culture, rather a compendium of comfort foods throughout the world, with a modernized flare.

The restaurant’s country / modern décor juxtaposed against our New Comfort cuisine, will have even the most timid diner savoring new flavors, without feeling overwhelmed. The North Salem country atmosphere represents a simple, yet unique dining experience that can be appreciated by families, young adults, and individuals from numerous walks of life.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends here last Saturday just prior to the Coronavirus mandatory closing order for New York State. The restaurant was half empty, but the service and food was superb! Avocado Toast and Calimari appetizers were perfect. Our steak sandwiches, shrimp po' boy sandwich and salad were delicious. The service was outstanding. We are relatively frequent patrons of this restaurant and feel that the food quality is better than ever!

My literal only complaint with the meal was that it was ridiculously hot in the restaurant. Otherwise the meal and the service were wonderful.

The food is always first rate. The menu choices are nice as there are a few "standard" items but others that change with the seasons and availability of fresh ingredients. The service was outstanding and very attentive, but never rushed.

Another amazing meal at 121! The service at this restaurant is impeccable from the moment we were greeted at the door by the hostess and General Mgr Mr Costin. They made us feel so welcomed. The restaurant was gracious in allowing me to change my reservation and accommodated us. All the details are done so well, from the croissant pretzel bread, to the craft cocktails. We enjoyed a variety of
Dishes at our table. The wood-fired Margherita pizza is literally the best around. The crust is perfect, sauce and cheese- amazing! A few had the very flavorful delicious burgers. I had the fish special over broccoli rabe and fingering potatoes- it was was light and very fresh. As always we love the salads. The arugula, pistachio, goat cheese combination with blood orange vinaigrette is my favorite! It’s crave- able! When we choose
121 to eat out at we can know with confidence it will be a great meal and dining experience. Our waiter was super
Attentive to our table. This restaurant obviously takes time to invest in professional employees who care about the customers and the business. Thanks again!!! 👍🏼

121 is our "go to" in the lower Hudson Valley when we are seeking innovative and quality food without NYC pretension and travel commitment. This place NEVER disappoints on delivering really thoughtful, tasty food. When you are a chef, but need to accommodate the kids on a Saturday night, without sacrificing your own needs, 121 is the only place we go!

The service by john and all was outstanding he had a very attentive pleasant and engaged attitude as did everyone.

The food was delicious. Absolutely all of it. We were w 5 adults and toddler. Appetizers drinks entrees everything was fabulous. We had burgers and cod and octopus and calamari pizza chicken tuna wings. Excellent.
Very cozy. Was a little cold ( by windows) at first then they turned up heat upon request.
We had a birthday and brought dessert there was no up-charge.
Every one in the party thought the same- top shelf!
It wasn’t cheap at about 60.00 a head w tip. But I truly didn’t feel taken. In fact I almost changed our dinner plans for tomorrow night to this again.
Kudos the 121!!

AMAZING! We will definitely be back. Had the perfect New Years dinner here. So cozy and the warm smell of the wood burning in the fire place just added to the ambiance. Our food was delicious, the drink selection was great. The service we received was superb. Can't wait to go back!!!! Just all around great.

Love this restaurant which we sometimes hit on our way upstate from the city. Charming farmhouse atmosphere with nice service and inventive menu. Servers are friendly but not intrusive and happy to make suggestions. The fig and burrata pizza is outstanding! Other choices we’ve enjoyed include the burger and the fried chicken sandwich. Have only been here for lunch but plan to come for dinner soon.

This has become our favorite restaurant. My husband and Uncle (he's 94) had the tomato bisque soup which was by far the best soup they have ever had. Next they had the filet mignon (cooked perfectly) and the parmesan crusted chicken. So delicious. The staff is so attentive to us. The hostess will come out and open the door for us, our waiter John Law is outstanding and even our servers are courteous. I cannot say enough about this place. We love it!

Everything was outstanding! Nice selection of unusual appetizers all tasty! Main courses were also very good and plentiful. Steaks were cooked as requested. Chocolate lava cake however was lukewarm - should have been much hotter. It was a Monday night, so not very crowded so nice & quiet!

We had wanted to find a new local place for Sunday dinner, so we tried 121 during Hudson Valley restaurant week. Service was spotty at best. We spent a lot of time waiting. Steak ordered medium- well came more med-rare and had to be sent back to the kitchen. Someone brought us dessert and never asked if we wanted coffee or after-dinner drinks, so we ate without coffee. The restaurant was not crowded, so I can't understand why the staff was not more attentive. We had to take our check to the front desk to pay after waiting too long again...we stood at the front desk watching the hostess chatting with another staff member by the bar. She never noticed us there waiting. All in all, not a good experience. We are very disappointed with the service, but the food was AMAZING.

The food was delicious and prepared nicely. And the overall feel of the place is warm and inviting. Our only complaint was that we felt that the service was spotty. When the wait staff was available they were great. But there a few times when we found ourselves needing something and no one was readily available. The ambiance is nice and laid back. We will definitely be back and hope for better luck with our waiter.

Our meal was great as always!! We had the corn chowder that was probably the best we ever had. The cream sauce was light and it was filled with vegetables. We also had the chicken with risotto and cream spinach and it was cooked to perfection. It has become our favorite dinner. Our waiter was again outstanding.

We love this restaurant and can't wait to go back!
