    Found the restaurant via open table app, but since we were so close we decided to just walk-in. The restaurant was empty except for 1 table but the hostess told us w/o a reservation they had no availability - pulled out my phone & clicked "confirm" for the reservation and suddenly they had room to seat us - very odd The food was pretty bland - after seeing the age of their other patrons we assumed they stopped using salt all together - The fried shallots were neither crispy nor hot The spooned raw bell peppers on top of the corn bisque, which completely overpowered any flavor other than raw bell pepper - the broccolini was cooked on such a high heat the outside was brown & burnt while still being raw inside. Would not go back.

    Love 11 South. Been there many times. An expected party of about 40 arrived shortly after we arrived. Our dinner choices were good not great as they most often are. I want to attribute this to the kitchen being overloaded by such a large group.

  • Uncooked Lamb

    Dined on 8/18/2014
    We regularly eat at Eleven South & have recommended it to numerous friends. But to my dismay I was less then impressed this visit. It was my husbands birthday. Our server did not even acknowledge it. I had the rack of lamb. When it arrived at the table it was basically raw. Politely I asked them to cook it further. It came back cooked very rare. The gentlemen whom was the waiter didn't even ask if the lamb was okay or if they could bring me something else. It was a total lack of customer service. My husband has traveled all around the Middle East & has eaten lamb numerous times & he even couldn't eat it! It was a waste of $30 dollars! I requested veggies because I could not eat anything else do to a special diet. There were mushed & soggy!

    As usual, the entrees were delicious although the 1/2 rack of lamb portion was quite small for the price. My husband's short rib entree was a better option in terms of value. And speaking of value, we took advantage of the half-price bottle of wine promotion offered on Sunday. Approximately 20% of the wine list is eligible for the discount and includes nice selections of most varietals.

    Eleven South has been our favorite restaurant at the Beaches for at least five years. It's somewhat remarkable that a restaurant can maintain its personality and quality of food and service for such an extended period, but Eleven South does just that. While the bar area is clearly a local favorite meeting area, we prefer the dining rooms - both inside and out on the patio. We recommend Eleven South to all our friends and will continue to do so based on our recent experiences this summer.

    Did you notice how I said the "noise level" was quiet? That is only true if you sit outside. There you can enjoy your meal and easily converse with your dinner partners. Inside the energy and noise level is high so unless that's what you're looking for you might be uncomfortable. Regardless, inside or outside the service and meals were very enjoyable. I heard raves about the salmon over pappardelle and my rack of lamb was very good.

    A beautiful place! My husband and I decided on this restaurant to celebrate his birthday. We really hate the typical chain restaurants like Ruby Tuesdays, Red Lobster, etc. (so those are ALWAYS out of the question) and even other restaurants in Jax aren't really worth the time or money spent in their establishment. It wasn't hard at all to fall in love with this place. There was a great vibe and great service before you even walk in the door! The food tasted great and the presentation was just as nice. Another romantic spot for my husband and I to enjoy a great evening out in Jax!

    Small intimate looking place, tables are only inches from each other. Noise level inside was deafening. You're totally in your neighbors conversations. We were seated in the middle of the dining room and the waitstaff put their hands on our chairs at our table and bumped us every time they walked by (I moved my seat to the other side), then they just kept hitting the table and not me personally. Very burnt prosciutto on shrimp appetizer, again black burnt prosciutto on chicken saltimbocca. Sloppy presentation of side dishes and just disappointing quality in the food prep and execution. Steak very fatty. Went somewhere else even for dessert and coffee it was that disappointing. Valet parking was perfect! That's about it.

    This night was a special offering for the 4th, with valet parking & a short walk to the beach to view the fireworks!! We were fortunate find a place the bar, so we could socialize and have a view of the open fire hearth used for cooking! Martha, as always, was a friendly and attentive bartender and server! We chose the Classic Wedge Salad, with an awesome Blue cheese dressing, followed by the Basil Parmesan Fettuccine topped with a large portion of Grilled Atlantic Salmon that was absolutely delicious!! The house Chardonnay is very enjoyable, and on Happy Hour $3.50 a glass. We love the Belle Glos Pinot Noir, with the sliders, but that will be next time!! Topped the meal off with a delicious glass of the Laetitia Brut Rose Sparkling Wine!!

The food cooked to perfection as requested, and the ability to choose your sides and preparation confirms that everything is cooked to order. Add something, take something away, adjust to your pallet.......The service is attentive yet not over bearing.

    Eleven South has been our favorite restaurant for several years. Two nights ago we dined there with friends. The corn chowder was OK. A fettuccini dish was very bland. It had far too many ingredients, and the sauce bordered on tasteless. When will American chefs learn that less is often more? In Italy the chef would have had a single ingredient, e.g. artichokes or asparagus and a delicious cream sauce. Very disappointing meal. Any restaurant can have an off night. We will return but select dishes more carefully. One friend ordered the lamb chops, and he indicated they were excellent.

    This restaurant is attractive but pricey. The three cheese appetizer is skimpy for the price and the cheese portions are miserly. I will not order this again. The scallops with risotto were excellent and well presented. The steak my husband ordered had a lot of gristle and had no taste. This is the second time he has ordered steak at Eleven South and he has been disappointed both times. We won't be ordering steak again. Our martinis were well prepared. I like Eleven South but I wish they would pay more attention to the portions and quality of their raw materials. If the food was a little better, we would go there more often. Upscale ambiance does not always translate into good value for money.

    A nice car parked in the parking lot, I'm thinking it was the owner's vehicle. I drive trough the parking lot in front of the building and it appeared to be a nice place I would like to try. A couple of days go by; I go on line. Much to my surprise I was very impressed about the restaurant's web-site. An impressive menu that a lot of thought went into. Menu selections to accommodate different palate tastes. Excellent appetizer choices, main dinner selections and desserts. Not at all expensive considering the "QUALITY". The service was 'SUPERB". There was an assistant to assist the waiter who was just outstanding. This is "NOT" a chain restaurant. A proprietor who knows the restaurant business!!!!!
