A word from ElevenXI Restaurant and Bar
Eleven XI brings sophisticated Southern Coastal fare and creative cocktails to a renovated 1940s-era house on a tree-lined Montrose block at the gateway to Midtown. An expansive patio overlooking West Gray sets the casually cool tone for the neighborhood-centric gathering place, offering continuous service from lunch through dinner, late night bites, a multitude of wines by-the-glass, as well as complimentary wi-fi. A thoughtful blend of classic and contemporary design elements. The venue features an expansive patio, main dining room and bar on the main level and a dedicated, second floor private dining room with a built-in bar, separate bathrooms and climate-controlled wine cellar.

Diner Reviews
  • "Evening started out well, and waitress was friendly, but was unable to remember salad for my date. She didn't deliver the entrees, and we were pretty much on our own after then. Had to flag her down after dessert to get the check. Food was good with good flavors and pairings, though I expected more off the menu specials. "

  • "This was our second visit to ElevenXI and we sat outside this time on a Sunday afternoon. The food and service were terrific. We had the Beef Tartar, Stone Crab Claws, Eggs Benedict, Breakfast Burger and the XI Madame. All were tasty with healthy sized portions. We'll return for sure."

  • "We went for birthday celebration. Service was stellar from the start. We tried the grilled oysters--even my daughter loved them. Two of us had the quail. Highly recommended. The ribs were great, as well. Topping off the evening was a chocolate bomb. We'll be back."

  • "This was my first visit here and I really enjoyed it. They have a unique menu with lots of different options to select from. The service was attentive and made the overall evening very enjoyable."

  • "The patio is large and great for evening. Our server was friendly and attentive. I think the dinner menu prices seem a little high for the atmosphere and ambience of the restaurant."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "I loved the oysters and the selection and really loved the bread pudding, but the main dish was bland and overcooked. I orderd the Apricot Flounder, which was the waiters recommendation. It was really dry and bland. I wanted to love this place. The service was great, but I honestly wouldn't go back. Maybe for just drinks and appetizers. It was overpriced for the quality of food."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I've been twice and had the pork chop both times. We started with the grilled oysters and my wife had the baby back ribs. Everything was fantastic, including the service."

  • "The food was excelllent and the service was good. Meet a friend for dinner, we split the fried oyster special that was amazing and the muscles from the menu as an appetizer (Note: muscles where on the small side probably due to season but the broth was drinkable, get extra bread to soak it up). For main course my friend got a special of the night , pork belly with scallops on top, was excellent they should added to the menu as a regular item. I had the lampchops of the menu with mushroom risotto and veggies, the chop was cooked to perfection best lamb yet, the riisotto needed a little work but I'll over look it because everything else was so good. Definetly will be back. Try a Gin Mule drink you'll enjoy that too."

  • "We went to this restaurant as the Yelp reviews were outstanding - 4 and 5 stars. I am not an oyster lover but since this an oyster bar too, I had to try. I have to say the selection of oysters was interesting and they were extraordinarily fresh- like eating/drinking the sea. If you love oysters, this is the place to go. Four of us ordered the lamb, filet, pork chop and rabbit papparadelle dish. The rabbit dish was excellent - a little too much beefy broth taste, but overall, excellent. The neighboring table ordered the apricot flounder and we all wish we ordered that! Lovely! Another table had the tasting menu and I would suggest that as well. Outdoor dining a +! Blue corn grits and risotto great! Prices reasonable. Sommelier very helpful!"

  • "We went to Eleven XI for a special Birthday brunch. Their service was stellar, which started immediately when we walked in the door and continued throughout our experience! On top of that, the food was excellent! Our table shared several dishes; we ordered the XI Madame, Breakfast Corn Dog, Seafood Crepe, Chicken and Waffles, Daily Fried Pie for dessert, and Mimosas (with 4 yummy juices to choose from!). All was executed perfectly and tasted amazing, our only regret was that we were too full to try more. My husband and I have been to Eleven XI a few times for happy hours and weeknight dinner; we always have a wonderful time there. I'm so glad to learn it's also a terrific choice for brunch and special occasions!!"

  • "Great food and service. The Fish of the Day (deep fried Red Snapper) was outstanding, cooked just right and very light albeit fried. Pineapple somosas were also a hit."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Showed up for our reservation, and sat us in a terrible seat. We felt like we were in the kitchen, with swinging doors nearly hitting us every 5 seconds and trays of food about 2 inches from my head. After telling the waiter, he essentially told us to leave because there was nothing he could do (or wanted to). However, after speaking to the manager, he made everything better immediately. Found us a new table very quickly and made sure we were taken care of. Food was delicious. Thank you for your help!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We lived here for forever and never been there. What a mistake. This place is great. Price is very reasonable, food is delicious and the staff was great. I specially recommend the 5, 7 or 9 course meal, with beverage pairing. They have a great wine cellar and the one of the owners personally chose our parings. Definitely a great restaurant."

  • "  My husband and I were married in early March 2014 and sought out a high-star restaurant with a chef’s tasting menu for our wedding night dinner. I loved the southern coastal offerings listed here and then looked at the name of the restaurant. The number 11 and 11:11 have been prominent in our lives and relationship, so finding the name to be “ElevenXI,” we were sold! We were able to enjoy the atmosphere, and each member of the staff were visibly pleased to be there and were extremely efficient and friendly. We ordered the 9-course Chef’s Tasting as our meal. Chef Bryant knows exactly what he’s doing, and by our experience with the Chef’s Tasting, you can order anything on his menu and know you’re going to love it."

  • "We went for the first time for brunch. We ordered 3 burgers, 2 of them came out wrong - we let our server know it wasn't right and she got the manager to adjusted our bill a few dollars (not our intent) to compensate. It also took a very long time to get our drinks and food - they were busy, the kitchen couldn't keep up. Not a great first impression..."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Food, hit and miss . Barbecue ribs excellent ,but the scallops and the salomon were over cook ( scallops are the signatypure dish ) risotto under done .overoll the food was fair"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The mussels appetizer was huge. They even provided gluten free bread--definitely a plus. The 5-course tasting menu paired with wine was excellent. The oysters were just as ordered: briny, not too metallic. I will return. The wines paired beautifully with the tasting and were unusual wines such as an ice wine from Quebec."

  • "Attentive service could not overcome mediocre meals..The redfish was obviously previously frozen with water all over the plate. The fried game hen was dried out . Soups and salads were acceptable . The forced valet parking was also a turn off..We wont return"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Eat the gala apple ravioli and you will be immersed in yummy food for the entire meal. Everything here is so amazingly delicious. The roasted tomato soup is incredible, as is the mini funnel cake. Go and try the whole menu!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "This is one of the true gems we have in our great city. The food is always amazing and the GM Joe and Chef Kevin always make you feel at home. Just a note for those of you who have gluten allergies -- if you let them know, they can make every menu item gluten free! This place is truly special."

  • "We found ElevenXI on the internet and decided to try it out. We dined early before going to the theatre so the crowd was sparse but the food was very good and the service was outstanding. Good wine selection and menu had wide selection. We had shrimp cocktail, tomato soup, ceasar salad, filets, rib eye and signature peanut butter dessert. We eat out alot and our rating system is "would we eat there again" and we definitely would."

  • "Wonderful food and great service. Flavors of food were magnificent with twists on older dishes as well as inventive new combinations. This will definitely be on our list of places to return"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was my second time dining at this establishment and once again, the food did not disappoint. I has the stuffed redfish fillet and it was delicious. My one complaint would be that we were 15 minutes late for our reservation and they gave away our table. It was quite a wait until they could seat us although that was our fault as well."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Found ourselves with late reservations for dinner on a Friday night and decided to try our luck at the bar before our table was ready. Had such a great time hanging out and enjoying appetizers that we decided to stay there for the night. Great bar atmosphere, very lively and excellent drinks. Only wish I lived a little closer to make it more often."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The bar is lovely and the cocktail menu is robust and interesting. We started out with a selection a raw oysters and delicious crab cakes. The lobster my friend ordered was overdone, but my salmon was perfect. I would definitely return."

  • "The service and food were excellent! We had ravioli nachos, salmon and the beef sampler. All were cooked perfectly. The dining room is a little loud for a first date but we'll definitely go back! We say Go!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The prices were reasonable but the food was average. The waitstaff knew the menu and were able to make some good recommendations. The crowd was a bit older than we expected and the ambiance was somewhat stuffy. The Lemon Drop Martini was not the best. We did not order dessert but there were plenty of options."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We celebrated a birthday here- nothing special about the décor in the restaurant, but the entrees were particularly notable. I had scallops which were properly cooked and seasoned, the salmon was also very good. One dining member of our party had the pork chop which was huge. The desserts (especially the peanut butter tower) were large enough for 2 and the French pressed coffee was a nice touch. A little pricey ($270 for four) but we did have a bottle of wine and beer. Service attentive but not overly cloying. All in all, another winner for the chef."

  • "Went for Sunday brunch and wanted a place that was dog friendly. It was fabulous, they have a live performer starting at noon. My favorite part were the Bloody Mary's... so delicious."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Spur of the moment early dinner on Saturday, we sat in the bar and had some fabulous oysters, followed by the stuffed fish filet and the pork chop. All tasted great, if anything the fish portion was a bit too large, but maybe just very filling due to the stuffing. The wine was great, staff are always very helpful and attentive, and even though we've only eaten there a couple of times, the waiter remembered us and welcomed us back."

  • "We met up with some old friends from Dallas. Service was excellent and the server provided an entertaining evening. The food was delicious (I had the rabbit, we shared the oysters, and beef tartare). This was our second visit and definitely will return."

  • "Price point is excellent considering the freshness, quality, and level of innovation at this restaurant. Have been several times, each time had something different, each time been blown away. Kevin is an excellent chef, the menu evolution and off the menu offerings continue to impress.Outstanding job, every time from the kitchen to the front of the house."

  • "WOW! This restaurant delivered on all levels. I love the red walls, cool artwork and the cozy, atmosphere. I hade the braised short rib. OMG Meat is so tender and not fat. I am fussy about fat. The sauce is perfect, veggies cooked just right not too soft and not underdone. The toughest decision was choosing the wine. For dessert, the peanut butter tower was delectable. Smooth, light subtle peanut flavor with a delicious chocolate ganache. Not too big. Just right for after a hearty short rib. I liked how the owner came by each table asking how everything was. Personal service, very attentive waiter. Super. Definitely going back. Want to try Brunch next."

  • "We enjoyed our first dining experience at ElevenXI very much! The fried oysters with spicy tartar sauce converted this nonoyster person. Our entrees (steak for my husband and scallops with risotto for me) were not only excellent but portion size was perfect for us. For dessert both the apple crumble and white chocolate bread pudding were divine. We will definitely return. There is outdoor dining and I would like to try their brunch. Since this was our first visit I don't know about the other indicators--yet."
