    Dined on 11/8/2014
    With my husband and I relocating out of the area, we wanted to have one last dinner in pittsburgh and we immediately knew it had to be at Eleven. The food is absolutely outrageous, and the ambiance is beautiful. It manages to be sophisticated and romantic without being stuffy or pretentious. But what continues to astound us is the service. The servers know their menus inside and out and are able to make perfect recommendations. We mentioned when we made our reservation that it was our last night in the city and they sat us in the most beautiful location and continued to provide the amazing service I've always experienced at Eleven. This place is a MUST for anyone in the area!

    The food here was outstanding. We both ordered the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings (one vegetarian, one not). This was a splurge, but totally worth it. Restaurant was very busy but I noticed they did have some semi-private alcoves available if you were looking for privacy.

    The food was excellent. This was my first time here and we had a really great experience. I had the seafood tasting and everything was cooked to perfection! The service was awesome and they knew that I was there for my birthday, so they wrote Happy Birthday on the piece of chocolate that they bring out at the end of your meal. Very nice touch!

    The ambiance is fabulous - the service was top-notch, even though Rachel was brand new - she was knew the menu and was delightful. The curried pumpkin soup was warm and seasoned to perfection. The tenderloin could be cut with a butter knife and melted in my mouth and the accompaniments were delicious. The pumpkin cavatelli was outstanding as was the swordfish. All in all it was the perfect meal!

    Have been stopping at Eleven more frequently now, especially for great weekday Happy Hour specials in the Tavern area. Took the more upscale route on Sunday for a birthday celebration. As always, service un-fussy but correct with just the right balance of friendly but reserved. Food up to the usual high standards and a great cuppa' Joe to finish. Eleven probably will remain our go-to location for celebrations.

    We are fans of Eleven and visit many times each year. We like to go to Eleven for special occasions, "birthdays, anniversaries etc." It is a place where you can always know you will be receiving great service and consistently wonderful food. The Sunday brunch is the best in the Burgh and one that we sample numerous times through out the year. This time we invited guests who have never been there and they loved it. Thank You Eleven.

    We took a friend from Switzerland and it was everything it has been every time I've been there. The service is always gracious and inviting. We sat upstairs and David was our server. He was fun, knowledgeable about the menu and helped construct an alternative meal for me since I don't eat meat but love scallops. I had sea scallops potato-wrapped with a coffee aioli. My husband had roasted pumpkin and quince soup and seared salmon with cauliflower and polenta. Our friend had the pork chop with pumpkin gnocchi. We also had the Three Greens Salads--quite good and fresh and crunchy. I have a lot of restaurants I love to go to and Eleven is always at the top of the list. It's a classy, comfortable place to have a great dining experience.

    My Taste buds were in overdrive! This is a great restaurant, the place is nice and the service very good. But the food is amazing, it was a long time that I had a plate with so many flavors that could create a unified theme, but also stand on their own. You could taste every ingredient and yet the dish overall had a special signature of the chef. The food is fresh and the entrees abundant. The wine list is a little bit overpriced, as in most restaurants, and has a good variety; you will find something to pair perfectly with your food. Or if you prefer they have a taste menu for which they will pair the wine for each plate. Great restaurant for food lovers!

Eleven gave us a special, secluded table with a balcony and a privacy drape, gave us our own personal waiter and the food was perfect! Everyone from the hostess to the manager went out their way to make our night perfect! Ads in the great atmosphere and ambiance of Eleven and we couldn't have asked for more. And yes, and said yes!

    We go there every 6 months or so as it is always a great dining experience. However, this time, the food was just mediocre. It is very expensive so mediocre does just not cut it! Definitely disappointed this time around. Server was nice but was so over expressive that it came off as annoying. Unfortunately it was just ok this time. I will try it again and I usually recommend it to others so I'm hoping next time will be better!

    Thursday's dinner to honor a friend's birthday was a total success. Only the noise level interferred...and when I asked for the (inapporpriate) music to be turned down, it was. I had been to Eleven a few weeks before and had a mediocre experience with ambiance and food. Do not know why the difference.

It was a lovely calm place to go before the craziness of our wedding day.

    though u had high hopes for dinner at Eleven, I did not expect to be completely blown away by every aspect of the evening. The space is misleading, as it is quite large but designed to feel intimate. The decor is understated elegance and boast extremely comfortable seating. The service was spot on and everything from drinks to dessert was a perfect accompaniment to the main act...dinner. The food was outstanding, creative and delicious. Every bite was a treat.
