Diner Reviews
  • "We have been eating at Eleven since its opening years ago. The restaurant never disappoints. The food and service is consistently of a high quality. I was not disappointed on this last visit. I was surprised that there was not a few "special" dishes on the brunch menu this past Sunday for Easter. Perhaps a special bread or rolls in the bread basket or a special dessert would have added to the occasion."

  • "If you are in Pittsburgh then Eleven is definitely worth a visit, friendly staff, warm and welcoming decor, excellent cocktails & an extensive wine list, the oysters were some of the best i have had in a long time, homemade baked bread delicious. I tired the seafood tasting plate which was OK but not as good as i had hoped, the standard of the each taster was not on par with each other. The desserts were amazing, i recommend the Chocolate-peanut-pretzel Candy Bar if you have a sweet tooth and also worth a try is the house made dessert wine Cara Cara-Mint-Ginger Otello-cello.. AMAZING !!! The one thing i wish is they would remove the television from the bar.. This place is too good for that. "

  • "We had a great time with good friends, great food and excellent wine. The bread server could have shown up a bit more frequently, but otherwise all was great. Our evening was tarnished however by the valet who felt he was entitled to a tip !!! We paid the parking fee as posted, but were then firmly reminded by the valet that we should give him more?? Kind of sad that the first and last impression of a fine restaurant is the parking staff who really need better social skills. Next time I will self park..."

  • "For the past three years, my partner and a close friend have received their birthday coupons from the Big Burrito Group. Since their birthdays are within two weeks of each other, there is a three-day overlap when they can use their coupons together. So our two couples have begun a tradition of celebrating the two birthdays at Eleven. We have always felt a special sense of occasion with excellent food and service. It's just one of the reasons that Eleven has become our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. This year, I went with the vegetarian tasting menu again and enjoyed it completely again. We'll continue the tradition as long as we are able."

  • "The food was good but not special. The wine list was OK but when I ordered a $125 bottle of French wine it turned out the wine manager could not find the bottle even though it was listed and then made a substitute (recommended they said) which when opened and tasted was really not in the same taste zone as the listed bottle. The service was casual and at times good and at other times hard to find a waiter. Expectations may have been higher than they should have been. It was a good meal but not extraordinary."

  • "Friends of ours recommended Eleven and it didn't disappoint. My husband and I both had seafood - swordfish, scallops - and they were delicious, as were the salads. The service is excellent; we felt catered to."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The entire dining experience was good to very good but not great. The waiter put a damper on the evening by being quite snooty from the getgo. Others of the wait staff were much more pleasant. Food was good especially the cavatelli appetizer which was excellent. Main dish crab cake was ok...nothing special. Halibut was also outstanding. We had a nice evening...would try again"

  • "We went to Eleven on a Friday during lent for my birthday dinner. The server did a great job of recommending a wine pairing for our entree and accommodating our diet restrictions. We were pleased with both the food and service and will return to this restaurant."

  • "I have been to Eleven on multiple occasions and I have never been disappointed. It is not an inexpensive place to dine, yet I always feel that, more than other comparable restaurants, I have gotten my money's worth. The service is always excellent, whether I am dining with women friends or my spouse. The presentation of the food is artistic and the food is delicious. I love Big Burrito group restaurants, but Eleven, to my way of thinking, is the best of the lot."

  • "The service was paced perfectly. The food was sensational. We all loved our food. It was a dining experience rather than a rushed meal."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Food is still good, but the menu could use an update. Same items all the time. Service was poor. The check was brought before we finished eating, and we were never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. Server asked if I wanted to leave the tip from the gift card, but then screwed it up so I couldn't, so I had to leave cash. Then he acted like it was something I did wrong, and gave me some attitude. I used to think that this was the best brunch in Pittsburgh, but not anymore. It will be awhile before I come back."

  • "One of the best Beef Tenderloins ever! The only problem I have with Eleven is the close seating. I don't want to hear the conversation of others. And I like my privacy with a date while dining. Think new seating arrangement."

  • "I met a friend here for dinner, and it was great! She is new to the area and had never been here. My previous experiences were brunch and happy hour. This place is fantastic! The service was incredible - friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere of the restaurant is outstanding. I would highly recommend this place going forward for any type of get-together."

  • "Incredible meal and wonderful service. I had opera tickets and mentioned that we had only one hour to eat. The server assured us that it would be no problem. We had cocktails, salad, first course, coffee and desserts. It was lovely cocktails, incredible food, great wine. Thank you Eleven!"

  • "A visiting friend said that Eleven had been highly recommended as "the" place to eat in Pittsburgh. I agreed because I had already been there once and the second visit reconfirmed the impression. I got the tasting menu (4 courses) -- excellent presentation... great, intense flavors... and very skilled wine pairings, with two in particular that I really liked. Dinner was at a leisurely pace, very attentive waiter. We asked for a quieter area and were satisfied with the result -- this is not the hushed, quiet-as-a-tomb ambience of some high-end places, but it's good enough. Pre-dinner martinis at the bar were excellent as well. Bottom line -- still the top choice in Pittsburgh as far as I'm concerned."

  • "Having lived in Pittsburgh for 12 years, I have enjoyed its expanding food scene and many great restaurant experiences. However, Eleven stands out from the pack for being consistently outstanding. Other restaurants can be hit or miss, but at Eleven, the food is flawlessly executed. It will be our go-to special occasion restaurant for years to come."

  • "Overall experience was up to the usual eleven standard. My burger was completely undercooked to the point of it been unappetizing. The server and manager comped my meal. I felt they handled it in the appropriate manner."

  • "Outstanding wine menu, Migrate Pinot Noir is amazing, great appetizers, amazing entrees and the best banana cream pie... this is a great place for a romantic dinner for you and your wife as well as an awesome place to hang out and eat with friends and family!!"

  • "My wife and I used a Big Burrito birthday coupon as an occasion to visit Eleven. We've been to most of the Big Burrito restaurants, and we've loved all of our experiences. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. Each dish was a work of art, a creative balance of flavors to be savored. I ordered the Grilled Swordfish and found it to be amazing--the combination of chorizo, peppers, garlic, clams, oysters, and pasta was absolutely delicious. My wife ordered the Seared Salmon; it was more delicate but equally amazing. We split the Warm Dark Chocolate Cake, and apart from the small portion size, it was perfect."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Second time at this outstanding restaurant and it did not disappoint. Everything is well executed from entrance to exit- it's done to perfection. Innovative drinks and food, great atmosphere and wonderful staff. If I lived in Pittsburgh, I'd be a regular."

  • "The only downside to dinner was a steak which was too firm.. All of the other courses were well prepared and creative.. My fiancé's vegetarian birthday dinner was delicious with no exceptions. The beet salad was exceptional..."

  • "As a family of 4, we had a great time at Eleven. PACE YOURSELF - so you will be able to take advantage of the wonderful homemade delights. From appetizers - spaghetti (with lobster)? - to amazing desserts (selection of sorbets)... we also had the crab cake, oysters and creme brûlée and would recommend all without hesitation. In between we were treated to a selection of homemade breads and wonderfully combined entrees, with the interesting sides helping us make our decisions. This review cannot go without mentioning the top-notch Manhatten. My only regret - not trying Eleven's version of the Moscow Mule."

  • "Our long awaited romantic evening was rewarded with good service, no wait, and extremely fine food. However, we were disappointed with the seating as I could (if desired) reach out and touch my neighbors plates or simply join in with their conversation. It appears Eleven has a number of very private dining tables, which I would request, but we were placed in 1 of 5 tables that were designed to be converted into a long table of 10 or 12 if necessary; however, this night it was set for 5 parties of 2 - even so tight the waiter could not stand between the tables but behind my chair. Also, be prepared to drop about $150 for 2 glasses of wine, salads, and entrees."

  • "I enrolled in the Big Burrito Birthday Club sometime ago and have come here every year since, which helps the sting of the dinner bill. I had the rib eye med-rare and it was perfect. Hubby had the NY Strip and he was happy with it as well. The oyster and tuna tartare appetizers were outstanding too. Great glass of wine with dinner, preceded by a manhattan for him and vodka martini (straight up-olives) for me. Very good service. Awesome dinner experience all the way around."

  • "This restaurant is always a winner to me! Gluten free knowledgeable also! Everything was amazing from drinks to dessert! My only disappointment is one I have usually everywhere, why can't restaurants keep some gluten free rolls in the freezer to serve with dinner? It doesn't stop me from enjoying my meal, just a slight disappointment! Would go back just for drinks!!!"

  • "For years we have found ELEVEN to be a reliable destination for high quality dining. The ambiance is comfortable. The menu changes regularly without chasing every new trend. The food preparation has always been singularly excellent."

  • "Eleven has a sit down, delicious, elegant brunch on Sundays. We ( party of 6) enjoyed the prix fix brunch . The service is attentive and not intrusive. It includes a choice if appetizers ranging from Oysters, charcuterie , to beignets. Breadbaskets full of croissant, muffins, biscuits. Entree choice of fantastic eggs Benedict, various omelets, Fish. There is something for everyone and it all Is delectable, so it's difficult to choose. I guess I'll have to go back and try the rest. :)"

  • "When visiting a friend and Pittsburgh local this past weekend, we chose to dine at ELEVEN before attending a black tie event. We started with oysters on the half shell and cava, and the spicy pear ginger sauce that came with the oysters was surprisingly good, though with quite a kick. For my entree I selected the seared halibut over creme fraiche potato puree with brussel sprouts and beet sauce. It was outstanding. In my opinion, the food is on point, however the decor is the slightly dated looking and the overall atmosphere left something to be desired. Despite that, I would dine here again."

  • "The selection is very good - upscale brunch items. The Eggs Benedict (came with a refreshing citrus salad) and Smoked Lamb Huevos Rancheros were both very good. The Prix Fixe Brunch option is a good deal - appetizer, entrée and brunch cocktail for $25. The Ruby Red was so good I had two! We also shared the Warm Chocolate Cake which they put a candle and Happy Birthday on a chocolate square for my husbands birthday. Very nice touch. We sat upstairs in a secluded area with just 2 tables. Lovely setting overlooking the main dining room but there was a stereo speaker a little too close and a little too loud. Service was great, well timed, never rushed."
