- The food is always spot on here.2foodloversDined on 8/28/2014We've eaten here 3 or 4 times in the last year; lunch and dinner. The menu is very creative, fresh, local ingredients. We always have high hopes but leave less than thrilled with the service. This week we went for a group lunch of 8 on a weekday, 11:30 to beet the crowd a little. Food was, great, came out fast. Brussel sprout appetizers, salmon salad, grass fed burgers, caprese salad & grilled chicken sandwhich, redfish bib lettuce tacos with lemon aioli, blistered tomatoes (my selection) and everyone raved about their dishes. Then the server disappeared as the lunch crowd grew. She was server, hostess & bar tender making mixed drinks. Not a great idea at your busiest time of the day. I've had the same slow service many times.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful RestaurantwinberiesVIPDined on 8/9/2014The owner Mike is fantastic. we actually did a wine tasting before the dinner, so we met the owner Mike. He came to our table later to talk with us. He has done a wonderful job with the restaurant since it opened. Many people have told me they went to it when it first opened a few years ago and the service was bad and they didn't have a great experience. The owner is more involved now and he changed chefs and the waitstaff is very good. We go there often and you should also. The food is great. it is a small menu , thus the name 11 plates. But everything is great. I think I've had everything on the menu already, but having it again is just as good as the 1st time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food, Wine with a ViewAdventurerDined on 8/4/2014Very tasty food. Salmon cooked to order with very nice lemon vinaigrette. Hanger steak with very interesting salsa marinade. The mac and cheese was very cheesy with a crunch. All this accompanied with beautiful views of the Hill Country.Special Features:
- txagdinertxagdinerDined on 8/4/2014Service was really good. The waitress was very knowledgeable, helpful and personable. All of our meals were excellent and very tasty. The dining room was pretty full but still not too loud.Special Features:

- Terrific food near 360christyDined on 7/26/2014This Davenport Village restaurant is a find. The food is consistently very good although I wish they'd freshen up the menu periodically to add variety. The shaded porch is delightful. Excellent wine choices that aren't just the same old thing.Special Features:
- Nice surprise.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/12/2014We were pleasantly surprised by this neat little bistro in Westlake. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. We will definitely return. When the weather cools a bit we will dine outside on the pretty balcony.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great care for my Mom's 94 birthdaySsmmrrDined on 7/10/2014The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was exactly as requested and most especially, the service was so caring for my a Mom.Special Features:
- great little restaurantsus9nrDined on 6/28/2014This restaurant is small so I would recommend a reservation especially if you have more then 4 people. It is a place where you can relax with a glass of wine and have a great conversation. The food was good. We had the wild boar wings which were tender and tastey. For entrees we had the pork steak which was very juicy. I had the red fish which was good but the artichoke mix that was on top over powered it. A dressing had the steak which he enjoyed and another off or group had the lamb chops which he said lacked flavor. The brownie desert was really good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always fabulous!!!Happy2eatDined on 6/20/2014I love this restaurant!! The food is outstanding and the service is flawless!!Special Features:
- Too loudfms1103Dined on 6/12/2014I would hardly call the noise level "energetic". It was so loud that we could not hear each other across the table. It was even hard for the waitress to hear us when we were trying to place an order. The bar scene was quite lively. The redfish and steak were very good. We will probably not dine there again because of the noisy atmosphere.
- A little disappointingdrntxVIPDined on 6/3/2014Went to eleven plates and wine on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was maybe a third full, so not overly crowded and appeared to be appropriately staffed. However, the service was pretty poor, waitress took order, brought 2 glasses of wine, then we waited for almost an hour for the food (ordered off the regular eleven selection menu). The quality of the food was marginal and the portions very skimpy (I am used to small portions for high-end cuisine or small plates) especially for full entrees that were pretty basic. I always look for excuses for poor service, such as understaffing or unexpected situations, but this situation seemed more like apathy or a training issue. Overall a nice venue. Hopefully they will get it together.
- Consistently well prepared dishesTXBBCVIPDined on 5/31/2014Eleven Plates offers an excellent bar serving original "craft cocktails" (try the ZFashion if you're a bourbon drinker) and reasonably priced wines to accompany a changing menu of specials that add variety to the staples on the dinner menus. The everyday menu -offers the usual selection of salmon and a white fish or two, chicken , steak, pork ribs, lamb chops and a house burger but all entrees are well prepared using locally sourced ingredients when practical. I've never been disappointed by the preparation, ingredients or presentation of our dinner. This is a pleasant place to have dinner with the spouse or with friends and the atmosphere is casual enough that families with with children can dine comfortably.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great All AroundGoodEaterDined on 5/30/2014Nice wine list. Choice of 6 or 9 oz wine by the glass is great when a bottle is too much but normal glass is too little. Never disappointed with Chef's original creations. Best salmon I've ever had. Nice original cocktail list as well. Service is attentive, but not overbearing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lunchHsoliverDined on 5/27/2014Best turkey sandwich I've ever had! Brewed iced tea at your table...such a treat!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 11 PLATES = NO BIRTHDAYSOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/21/2014Food was amazing. Hospitality=COLD. Greeter at the door which I came to find out later was actually a manager unbelievably rude. It was my fiancé's birthday so we happily decided to try 11 plates as we heard it had great food. Food was superb. Water was served right when we sat down. Drink orders took 20 minutes, 2 of those being draft beers, not acceptable. Appetizers were brought and we had no appetizer plates. I waited 5 minutes then had to get up and ask for plates. I later saw the (rude) manager hanging on a guy at the bar. I brought in a cake for a BIRTHDAY...HELLO! Manager SCOLDED me for brining in a cake yet made no accommodations for my fiancé's Bday..even though I put this in the comment section when I reserved a table.Special Features:
- The French Fries!pbillings512Dined on 5/21/2014The french fries that came with my burger were very addictive. I could have eaten an entire plate of just the fries.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Craft Cocktails and small...yumFoodaholicVIPDined on 5/20/2014Eleven has a great concept, which fit perfectly for us the other night. Known for its excellent wine selections, we discovered an inventive menu of craft cocktails and small plates, in addition to a wideranging full dinner menu. But our appetites tended towards a smorgasbord of smaller plates (sort of like tapas) and we made a meal of several along with an assortment of their craft beverages...making for a very nice experience without getting too stuffed!Special Features:
- Very disappointedCvisitorVIPDined on 5/14/2014Decided to try the restaurant week menu, and went with the waiter's recommendations. Really weird food. Started with the small lamb sausage links (bad appetizer -- and I like lamb), followed by a high-priced truffle burger that was ordered medium well -- came out rather pink and dripping with grease. Not much taste for the price. Tons of fries, which were the best part of the meal. And a dessert that was something that you might have with High Tea (but with coffee) -- but not at all what I pictured from the waiter's description. Maybe their other food is good, but this was a really poor introduction if they were trying to lure return customers through Restaurant Week participation.
- A favoriteKKWAustinDined on 5/9/2014This restaurant has never failed me. The food is consistently great, service is extremely good, and setting is lovely. At times I forget about this neighbor gem since I do not go by this location on a regular basis, but when I go, I am always pleased and vow to return soon again. I had the red snapper with artichokes and yummed it down til the plate was clean. The chocolate dessert is just way too good...just order it and deal with calories later. Wine list is nice and prices are good for the quality. This restaurant is just darn good, period!Special Features:

- Good lunch but don't take your timeSunriseVIPDined on 5/2/2014We had a birthday luncheon there. the food was good but the Brussels sprouts were excellent! our waiter seemed a bit exasperated by my group of friends. We hadn't seen each other in a while took our time before looking at the menu and making our lunch choices. He seemed irritated by the fact that we were not paying attention to him when he came to try to take our order.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Inventive fare, with a view, too!FoodaholicVIPDined on 4/28/2014A great find in the Davenport Village center in Westlake, Eleven P&W (despite the odd name) has many more items on their menu than just eleven, do don't be deterred from sampling this delicious spot. A great place to sit outdoors on the shaded porch overlooking the Hill Country, the service was mpeccable and attentive, without being invasive. The meals were tasty, and nice twists on old favorites. AS this was lunch we didn't explore the wines being served, but the wine list looked intriguing and worthy of a return trip.Special Features:
- Great foodCGaustinDined on 4/24/2014The menu is varied and the food was great. The service was not great and our server was sort of surly. We will try it once more. If the service doesn't pick up, we will go elsewhere. There are too many great places in Austin to put up with mediocre service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/20/2014I was somewhat disappointed in the menu for Easter brunch. The quality was very good but simply not my choice for brunch fare.Special Features:
- Another fun eveningNjwatxVIPDined on 3/29/2014They always tuck us in a quiet corner when I request it. Appreciate that! Many were dining outside this time, but the weather was still a little too cool for us. Great food and service. Go with good friends and you'll have a perfect time!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food was great but theippoDined on 3/28/2014The food was great but the noise level is very high inside in the side roomSpecial Features:
- Great find!TexgirlDined on 3/17/2014I went here for my birthday with family members and was blown away by the great service and delicious entrees. The fried brussel sprouts were especially good, as were the salmon and frito misto entrees. When my husband made reservations online, he told them it would be my birthday, and I was so surprised when the wait staff all wished me happy birthday, and even brought champagne on the house. The restaurant is kid friendly and there were several items on the kids menu to choose from. They even brought my 10 year old a cherry flavored water in a champagne glass that he could toast with. The prickly pear margaritas are to die for! Great job Eleven plates! We will definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 11 plateswinberiesVIPDined on 3/15/2014we've been here many times. have never been disappointed. i've had everything on the menu now, since there are just 11 plates. food is always good. service is always friendly and good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- RepeatableOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/15/2014We had a delicious dinner out on the porch while the sun was going down. I had the arugula and grilled asparagus salad with manchego. Delish! My husband and I share the steak frites. The aoli was addictive. We ended with the bread pudding. It was warm comfort food. I nice evening!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Waiter failed...HautechicDined on 3/13/2014For a restaurant that was started with wine and food pairings in mind, our waiter fell short. His service was good, but he had absolutely no knowledge of the wine list. He only knew about wines no longer on the list or about the most expensive wines that he felt we should order. That being said I was able to find wines to have that were great and perfect for our food, but with absolutely no help from him. The food was outstanding though and we had a fabulous time!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good eats in Davenport RanchMartinDined on 3/8/2014This little hidden gem was excellent on the night we visited. We ordered the scallops, salmon, and steak frites and all diners were pleased with their selections. The truffle fries were excellent and the steak was cooked exactly as ordered. Both the salmon and scallops were perfectly seasoned and seared. They offered several wines by the glass in 6 or 9 ounce pours. We arrived early and service was warm and attentive until the restaurant began to fill. Once our meal was served, we seemed to be forgotten for a bit but didn't mind since the food was so good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- All good!Nic512Dined on 2/21/2014I have visited twice. The first time was a week night dinner with a friend, the second was a girl's night dinner. Both times, we had no trouble making reservations, the service was attentive but did not hover and the food was wonderful. They have a wonderful variety of cocktails and wine and the deserts are really good. The only potential criticism I have is that the food took a little longer than I would have liked but it was definitely worth the wait. Two big thumbs up and I am looking forward to finding a reason to return soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Must try the brussels sproutsFoodFanDined on 2/18/2014We've gone to eleven plates numerous time for lunch. It's a great business-person lunch place--classy, eclectic menu, great food. I hate to say it because I don't want everyone to rush there and then I can't get in. But this place is really amazing. Only tip: make sure you have a reservation or you can expect to have to wait for a table.I would recommend this to a friend.
- This was our second visit.OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/15/2014This was our second visit. The food was mostly very good (the boar chops were a bit dry). It would have been nice to get some bread, especially for the sauce from my mussels. When I asked, I got toasts, which were tasty but not good for sopping sauce. The service was generally pretty attentive and much better than the first visit. We had to ask to be moved at first because we were seated next to the door to the balcony and it was quite busy and cold. As with most modern restaurants, the decor produces a noisy atmosphere. One of the dining areas has the bar, which is not offensive, but the bar had a TV showing sports, which seemed weird for this level of restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Everyone enjoyed itNjwatxVIPDined on 2/15/2014We chose this restaurant for two couples to meet for dinner because it was about the same distance for both to drive. It turned out to be a great choice because everyone enjoyed their meals of spare ribs, pork, and scallops. We all loved the Brussels sprouts and the salads were fresh and tasty. They gave us the quiet table we requested and we really appreciated that, too. We are already planning our return visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- the food is fantastic andvaletinesDined on 2/14/2014the food is fantastic and the wine pairings with each course were superb. the candlelight was lovely, but otherwise the space does not create a romantic valentines dinner. however, i would go back for a non-romantic occasion food experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Valentine's FailOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 2/14/2014While the items on the fixed menu were good and we enjoyed the flavors, there was something lacking overall. I didn't t know that our server was our server until she came over and asked if we were ready to order. After we sat down, she told us she was bringing us water while we waited - I thought that she was the bartender or a server just covering the section until our server could arrive. There was no description of the food, nothing - just "are you ready?". At $50 per person plus drinks, you'd think that there would at least be a "Hello, I will be taking care of you tonight". We ordered our drinks and food at the same time, and everything came out ok. The food was good - and we might have gone back, but the service did nothing for us.
- A little expensive for what you getOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/14/2014The food was good, but i've had food that was better for the price or even cheaper. Being that its in a strip mall, really detracted from the experience, and I think the price should reflect that. The first and second course were ok, with the main entree being delicious. I would recommend this place for lunch or a change of scenery from the rest of the restaurants in this price range.Special Features:
- a disappointing dinnerJorieDined on 2/13/2014We were seated right away in a room off the main dining area and no one was in there, so that was wonderful! we could see the sun setting off the balcony, very pretty. The food was good, we enjoyed our meal, but nothing to rave about. The service was not good. The servers looked a bit unkempt. Our server coughed into her hand several times throughout our time there, she also had a band aid on her finger that she served our plate with and it touched the food. Also, our salads were brought incorrectly twice. It was all very unsettling.Special Features:
- They should do bettermuffinmanDined on 2/7/2014Server very nice, but spoiled birthday surprise by asking who's birthday in front of group.Should have checked with the person checking in the reservation. Restaurant should have protocol for that. Brussel sprout appetizer is great and the shrimp was good. We all enjoyed a variety of interesting cocktails which were prepared well. Steak and pork entrees were also good as was redfish. The scallops were below average and 3 on plate for an entree isn't reasonable to me and I'm not a big eater. I believe a good server when asked "How are the scallops?' ( and she was), should respond, "It might not be enough for a big eater" or It's not our most popular" There are ways for good waiters to clue in diners who ask and it's part of the job.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
