  • "Eleven South Bistro is a cozy and cute restaurant with a nice food menu. I wished they had more Old World wines on the wine list. Our food was delicious."

  • "Here for our anniversary. We can depend on Eleven South always being outstanding. No exception on this trip. Keep up the good work."

  • "I researched a restaurant for our anniversary and Eleven South Bistro had great reviews everywhere I turned. The ambiance and service was great but for the price, wasn't so impressed. The escargot was the worst my husband had in his entire life. His steak was okay and the Lobster Mac and Cheese was okay (not much lobster). My Ahi Tuna was great. We would have rather spent the money at III Forks. It was a nice change to go out to the beach but there is no beach view. Mitchell's Fishmarket at Town Center is awesome and doesn't cost nearly as much. Sorry Eleven South, but we won't be coming back."

  • "When we arrived, we told our server we were headed to a show. She and her coworkers were attentive, and the chefs cooperated because we were on our way with time to spare. How often does that happen? Two got the special fish (striped bass), one got a salad (beautiful and delicious) and I got a combo of appetizers, including artichoke soup that was outstanding. By the time we left at 7, the dining rooms were almost full. Call early!"

  • "food and service was great but the noise level was quite loud which affected the date I brought with me."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The special - a fish dish - was quite dry as if it had been sitting under a lamp for awhile. My petite fillet was good but the so-called wild mushrooms were nothing more than standard button mushrooms for $5 extra. Decor is very nice."

  • "Very disappointed. Worst red snapper special I've ever had. Service was great, and management actually apologized. Over priced for mediocre food."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "As always the food was great at Eleven South. The noise level was quite high given how nice the restaurant is. They need to muffle that noise level. You shouldn't need to yell to talk in the restaurant."

  • "Even though I cannot recall the name of our red headed waitress, I was so blown away by her. She was patient and definitely took her time to help me pick out a wine to go with my entrée. I’m not a lover of robust red wines, but she picked one that not only complimented my entrée but my dessert as well. On top of that, my escargot and half rack of lamb were perfect! Seasoned to perfection, my boyfriend almost died and went to heaven after having the NY Strip with the truffle butter. All in all , I was really happy that the staff and my waitress didn’t treat myself and my boyfriend like we were kids—even though I look very young and we were dressed in jeans and shirts for our Iron and Wine Concert."

  • "Have always really enjoyed Eleven South. Plusses for this visit: in "private" dining room (an alcove with just 4 tables); salads were wonderful and bruschetta was great. Drinks were good. Service was just right. Minuses: We all ordered the baseball steak with lobster stuffed baked potato. Steak was on the tough side and flavor just so-so; potato was overcooked. Would return, but for the price, they shouldn't have had this big a miss"

  • "We have eaten here quite a few times and have always enjoyed our experience. This time however we had requested either a booth or a table on the end since I tend to get claustrophobic. When we were seated we were given neither type of table. We were seated outside (which we didn't request since we like to sit inside) and stuck between two tables. Not only was the seating not ideal but the heat lamps were turned on so high and directed right at me that it made very difficult to feel comfortable. It was the worst experience we have at the restaurant. The food was great but the seating situation made the whole experience unenjoyable."

  • "My girlfriend and I had a great experience at this restaurant. I had the Ribeye steak. This was very flavorful and juicy. Cooked to perfection. The idea to put the steak on top of Kale was a great idea. One I will be using on my next home steak night. This was very nice dinner and we are counting the days until our next visit here."

  • "My fiancée and I have been here a few times. Service has always been the best. This was no different. Our server was outstanding! We sat on the enclosed patio. The ambiance was incredible as was the food. The service was incredibly knowledgable and friendly, yet very professional. We could not have asked or had a better server, but we have come to call that the norm at Eleven South. Simply amazing."

  • "We went to Eleven South Bistro before attending the St. Olaf College Choir performance at Palms Presbyterian Church. We were a group of 5. My wife and I were the only ones in our party that had been there. Service and food was superb. The others in our party will be return customers too."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "The quality of the food did not equate with the prices being charged. The Caesar salad was a complete waste & I had a pasta dinner adding scallops to it (which was appreciated that that was accomodated) but it added $15 to an already high entree price. Really? The service was outstanding though & the ambience good; love the courtyard, but the food was a bit disappointing."

  • "I took some friends from Naples to 11 South for lunch. We had a fabulous meal, great wine & they were kind enough to seat us in one of the private rooms where we could catch up in a quiet space after not seeing one another for many years. Perfect, as always!"
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Let me start by saying this is an intimate size restaurant and your evening's experience begins with valet paring as they have no room for open parking unless you are prepared to park elsewhere and walk. The bar is small and is next to a bar-b-q fire pit. You must make reservations and the enclosed patio is very nice so consider asking for it. The owners and and general manager are always there and are great folks and they will make sure that you are treated like their most special guest. It is a very romantic place to take that someone special where you can whisper in their ear and be heard. The food is absolutely perfect. On this occasion, I had shrimp stuffed with crab and wrapped with bacon and grilled."

  • "We dined here for dinner for my birthday. Suprisingly it was the first time I've been here. Dinner was fantastic from start to finish. They serve one of my favorite wines by the glass & have an outstanding wine list. The service was attentive but never rushed, & we enjoyed an almost two & a half hour dinner (by our choice, no delays on the restaurant's part). The bruschetta appetizer special & bacon wrapped crab stuffed shrimp were to die for. I enjoyed the half rack of lamb, which with the spinach & gnochi it came with, was the perfect portion for me. The deserts were also amazing. The restaurant was very busy but it wasn't too loud to where we couldn't have a conversation. I would highly recommend the restaurant and can't wait to go back."

  • "Great time here for my birthday! The service was great and the food was incredible and came out quickly! I would definitely recommend this place for those wanting a great meal or to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "To start, they have now added a cheese selection menu. This was a nice compliment to have with cocktails. We selected one cheese, which was a small portion and a dish of olives,. Nice presentation with crackers and grapes. The steak with mushrooms melted in your mouth and the tuna was cooked to perfection. Portions were not huge, but filling. There were several other entrees that sounded wonderful, so we will have to come back before they change the menu - which they do frequently."

  • ""Energetic" is not quite enough to describe how loud the patio was.........."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The only place I've eaten that was louder was Blind Rabbit, which is a burger bar. The outside is better for conversations if it's packed. Also, it took 3 trips for the server to locate the bottle of wine I ordered, even though their inventory showed 5 bottles in stock. After that, everything was great. The wine was good, as was the food. The wine's not marked up by much either which was nice. I've never had a bad experience here, the steaks are always perfect."

  • "Our recent experience at Eleven South was surprisingly disappointing. Past regular customers, it was our first.time back in possibly a year. We sensed a downward change In atmosphere, service level and the quality of our food was way below expectations while prices were still at the fairly high end. - something we don't mind when the dining and experience rate it. I doubt we will make a return visit, soory to say."

  • "Great food! Three of us had the rack of lamb which was excellent. One had chicken saltimbocca with a marvelous sauce. What fun to find appetizers 1/2 off with an entrée on Monday nights. The server was outstanding."

  • "The food is refreshing and delicious. The ambiance takes one to New York City. And the service is the best of Jacksonville Beach in its hospitality with a good mix of generous personalities. A thoughtful wine list that has many gems to offer. We have never been disappointed in the specialties of the day. A local standard for a special occasion that has never disappointed us. And it is FUN. A "must do" on one's edible bucket list."

  • "We ate here for Christmas Eve dinner. I requested the patio based on reviews I'd read saying the dining room was noisy, and we were seated at a nice table on the patio. It was a little chilly because there was a breeze. If there hadn't been a breeze it would have been fine because the heaters were on and provided good warmth. The noise was low enough that we didn't have any trouble conversing or hearing one another. Everyone fully enjoyed their dinners (we all had seafood). Our wait staff were wonderful - very attentive and our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu . The only odd thing was the house gin martini one person ordered cost a whopping $32 when the house manhattan another person ordered was only $5."
