Eleven is HeavenI had the great pleasure of dining at Eleven for lunch the other day. The green salad and salmon were out of this world. Along with a nice chardonnay it made the meal complete. Even the bread was incredibly delicious. It was the best lunch I can remember having in forever. The atmosphere was hip and current and very comfortable. I would recommend Eleven to everyone I know.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood not exceptionalWith a restaurant of this quality you know the food is going to be good, but the question is: how good? My girlfriend and I started by sharing a prosciutto appetizer that was stellar yet not quite amazing. My date then ordered the steak, which was everything I expected and then so much more. That steak was to die for. I ordered the grilled swordfish which was served with a complimenting list of delicious vegetables, but, again, the swordfish was nothing to go home and brag about for its price (the vegetables/pasta were). The dessert was wonderful. One of the best desserts I have ever had. Unfortunately our server was lost when we wanted our check and we waited far too long for it. The dinner was great but I expected slightly more.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional,service &'foodThe food was fabulous for our brunch last Sunday, but what really stood out was the service. We arrived late for our just-before closing reservation due to a street fair blocking traffic, but they never hurried us or made us feel like they were anxious for us to finish.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe had a very delightful dinner on 8 June. The martinis were excellent! The menu was intriguing. Our party of three (including an executive chef) wanted to sample as much as we could of the menu (we did not go with the tasting menu - which just didn't appeal to us that evening) The lamb carpaccio was ethereal. The sashimi appetizer was nicely balanced. Halibut, Seafood Sampler and the Strip steak entrees were perfectly prepared and presented. We chose two wines - and the sommelier answered any questions we might have had. Pleased with our choices and very, very nice with the meal. Finished with three different desserts - Tiramisu Cannoli - wow! Some port and Amaro and we walked away very happy, nicely satisfied. RECOMMENDED!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection, no complaintsI attended this restaurant on a busy Friday evening. We had reservations but were running late. We called and they gladly held our table for us with no hassle. The menu was very eclectic, with something for everyone. The wine menu is extensive; I did wish the waiter had a little more knowledge / opinion when we asked for a suggestion. He was very nice, though, and attentive. Overall it's a great spot to visit in the heart of Pittsburgh's Strip District.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food...great service!!My husband and I enjoyed celebrating his birthday at Eleven. Othello was a great server and the food was incredible. We will be back!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWonderful tuna tartare , unusually prepared and delicious halibut6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!!!Unbelievable flavors collide to form an excellent menu.

Love the valet parking too6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven't really had a problemHaven't really had a problem here but first time for everything. Had ordered salmon without the bacon ended up coming with bacon and the salmon was very over cooked almost rubbery. Our other entree was very good no issues.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as Always!!!As always, Eleven was an excellent experience. The appetizers were delicious, especially the Lamb Carpaccio and Yellowtail. They have a great wine list with a vast selection and vast price range, so there is something for everyone. Entrees were delicious - I had the halibut and it was cooked perfectly. There were five us and we were catching up and having a great dinner and there was no one rushing us or trying to get us out, which is a great feeling on a Friday night.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService and foodOur waiter, Myles, was terrific and very professional. The ladies distributing the bread were very friendly. Our seafood dishes were terrific. It was early so the noise level was quiet.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGo to Place When In TownEleven provides top quality meals and a variety from which to choose. I am partial to the fish plates.

Once I had a table, the service was great, attentive, not intrusive, and responsive.
Food was excellent!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing!Our food was absolutely phenomenal. Unfortunately, our waiter was not. Wrong orders to wrong people, forgotten items, dry glasses often. The food more than made up for it, but next time we'll choose a different section to sit in.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEleven is an 11+I brought my wife and daughter to Eleven last night for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Everything was outstanding. The food was delicious. My daughter has the vegetarian sampler and it looked beautiful and my daughter said it was amazing! I recommend the Eleven Mule for a cocktail. The cucumber vodka was delicious! I highly recommend Eleven!! The food is delicious, the desserts... amazing. You will not be disappointed!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIn fast but took awhile forIn fast but took awhile for our order.

The ingredients were fresh, high quality, and well-prepared with unexpected touches. Like the fresh mint in the pea vichyssoise, and Moroccan spices on the lamb chop. The tangerine cake for dessert was delightful!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day 2013Celebrated Mother's Day this year at Eleven.

Wait staff service was exceptional. The appetizer and entree selections require us to return again and again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMElevenThe service was outstanding; however, the manager could have been more pleasant and accomodating at the door.

Myles our waiter was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great serviceWe had a great dinner at Eleven. The food was imaginative, well prepared and came out hot. We loved the homemade bread and dessert.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEleven is one of the premierEleven is one of the premier restaurants in Pittsburgh and one of their best attributes is the impeccable service. Last Saturday, they fell short of our expectations. We sat in the table overlooking the bar and found that the upstairs bartender also did double duty as the server for our table. While taking care of our group, the service was good, but the delays between his visits to the table made our dinner longer than anticipated and we had to take our desserts to go so we would not be late for a show. He was a good fellow, just spread too thin.
Our food was outstanding - as were our desserts when we had the chance to enjoy them later - so we will return but will clarify that our table will have a server who does not double as bartender.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive and AmazingOur work team went as a group to celebrate two birthdays. The staff was attentive, accommodating, and friendly. The food was amazing and we were able to sit outside. A wonderful break from the chaos at work and great way to celebrate together. A bit of a spurlge for lunch, but totally worth it!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated my birthday atCelebrated my birthday at Eleven...one of my favorite Pittsburgh eating places. The food was excellent as always. Service was exceptional. I was especially impressed with the menu selections. There was something for everyone's palate. Everyone at our table shared bites so it was a wonderful way to sample the best of Eleven. Even though my guests and I were quite full at the end of dinner, the dessert menu was too enticing to refuse. I ended my meal with a delicious chocolate dessert and the best cup of coffee in the 'Burgh.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup night out!Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. The assorted appetizers we shared and the Wild Alaskan Halibut were GREAT! Some of us shared a 2010 Malbec that was very good.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Consistent w/Great Food!Dining with Eleven for years.

My wife really enjoyed her birthday dinner with all of her friends. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive to our needs. I found it especially great that I was asked if the dinner was a special occasion and that my wife's dessert had a Happy Birthday message made of chocolate. It was the perfect place to spend the evening.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had not been to ElevenWe had not been to Eleven in several years and decided to try it in conjunction with show tickets at Heinz Hall. We were seated upstairs and while the noise level was lower, it is still accoustically quite lively. This was more than offset by the outstanding service and food. Our server made some suggestions and they proved to be excellent. Our meals were delicious.
This is definitely going to be back on our list for places to eat in downtown Pittsburgh.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
