  • Beautiful place, lackluster service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I had high hopes for ELEVEN, but the service was lackluster at best. The table was not ready when we arrived (on time), a huge pet peeve of mine. So we waited, for some time, in front of a sign that said "Coat Room", but no one offered to take my date's coat. Our food was delivered to the table next to us, which sat there a few before being relocated immediately to our table, which was weird. Food was okay but severely overpriced; $40 for a seafood platter, you expect some panache. I got a sliver of salmon, a lonely crab cake, and a few small scallops unceremoniously plated. Finally, they brought the wrong bill,which I paid. One foot out the door, they grabbed me to pay the other.If you screw up a bill like that you should honor the price.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. I requested a quiet/private table when I made the reservation. We were seated just outside of the kitchen...not the most quiet part of the restaurant. We politely asked our server if another table was avail in a quieter part of the restaurant. She confirmed w/the hostess, no other 2 tops were avail and they were booked for the night. We didnt make a big deal about it and said thank you for checking. I think from the moment we "complained" about our table, the server wasn't the most pleasant, or thats just her personality. Either way,she was helpful w/our questions, but could have at least smiled once and had a better attitude and we felt rushed. Food was great! I would def recommend.

    the server was so uninterested in our table that it was odd. I had to ask him for any any specials and request to start ordering. We were done with our entrees and again had to ask the person in charge of the bread to get my server to order the main dish. It used to be that the cook would send some small samplers between dishes as an attention. That didn't happen either.

    We have had a special-occasion dinner here in late August for the last few years, and are particularly fond of their inventive gazpacho, which I have not seen equalled elsewhere (this year it had cantaloupe in it!). The food, both beef and fish, was extremely well-prepared, and the service was flawless, attentive but not fawning. The wine list has many expensive bottles, but also a good range of midprice values. The two factors that lead me to give four rather than five stars: the sides were over-salted, and there was overly loud music piped in. (There are no salt shakers on the table. I'd vastly prefer, as would my doctor, that they reduce the salt in the kitchen and let the diners decide how much NaCl they prefer.)

    I brought my wife here on a Saturday night. Good drinks, especially the Manhattan. Our waiter Andrew was quite attentive. We never felt rushed, but our next course of food was always ready to soon after we finished the current course. Our Entrees of Beef Tenderloin and Salmon were excellent. There was a choice of bread with the meal - sesame crusted, sea salt, and whole wheat. Sea salt bread was best. Next time we would come earlier and get a drink at the bar which looked very nice.

    I visited this establishment for a celebration. The waiter was decent and knowledgeable in the menu. He seemed to recommend more of the higher priced items rather than suggesting by taste. I also did not like that the tables were so close to others. They seat the parties of 2 so close to one another that you feel awkward attempting to leave your table and could also hear others' conversations. Other than that, the experience was great. I would visit again.

    Everyone was friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. I had swordfish which I thought was over cooked and overwhelmed by the accompaniments; sausage and pasta with heavily spiced red sauce. The fish sampler was great and nicely done as we're the deserts. I would definately return. The server could not have been better.

    Bottom line: severely overpriced for what you get, will not be going back. Get the sense this place became popular and has since let its quality slide downward while pricing goes up. Serving staff were great, so it isn't a staffing problem. Food wasn't memorable but price (ouch!) was. Cocktails were disappointing. One gin drink was supposed to be mixed with citrus twist and instead just had wedges stuck to the outside of the glass. A berry rum mojito came out looking like a blended berry smoothie--should have been listed as a daiquiri instead.

    Four of us went there on a Friday night. The food was delicious and waitstaff was very friendly. You really can't go wrong with anything on their menu. As for appetizers I have to mention how good the oysters are there as well as the house made sauces served with them. Also, I recommend the Eleven Mule cocktail is refreshing and delicious.

    Went to celebrate my babe's birthday dinner, requested special seating side-by-side and it was happily and easily accommodated. They called a car at end of night to get us back to hotel since it is located a bit on the outskirts of downtown. We didn't have to wait long, not a big deal. I would go there again. Nice balance of fancy without being pretentious. A little pricey but tolerable. Safe bet to take her here and be satisfied.

    Recently we have been to Eleven on three different occasions. The food quality and taste have been a hit or miss at best. For a fine dining experience, i would expect better and more consistent taste and quality. At the last visit last week, the gazpacho was just too sweet, the sashimi very average and tomato salad and chocolate desserts were excellent. My husband ordered the vegetarian tasting and the hummus and squash appetizer was very good but rest of dishes were very average. Most disappointing is that their breads are not warm. For an average price of $75/- per person when the bill arrives, one would expect warm breads and better food for your taste buds.
