I toook my wife to Eleven14
I toook my wife to Eleven14 for her birthday and we had a very nice time. The food and energy was perfect. Even our after dinner drink at the fireplace was nice (I got to catch some basketball too at that moment). However, the only thing that made this a very good experience versus excellent was the service. We sat down and waited 10 mins between them pouring some water and asking if we needed a drink. The waiter rarely checked on us during dinner and then forgot our coffee with desert. The dining manager made up for it by coming by but they should inform the waitstaff that it is ok to see your table occassionally and bring drinks in a timely manner.

Pricey but a very comfortable restaurant that doesn't overwhelm one with noise as so many restaurants do.

eleven14 brings to Greenwich,
eleven14 brings to Greenwich, and especially the Riverside section, a NYC vibe.
decor is modern and cool, and the food fits the crowd, which is mostly young, thin and well-off. wine list is a little expensive, but there are some cheaper selections.
after dinner go the store "chocolate" in the lobby.

I enjoyed dining here. The waiter was very helpful and spot on with his suggestions. He was knowledgable about the wine list as well and helped us pick out a reasonable priced bottle. I will be back.

The setting is modern and bright with plenty of room around the tables so you aren't too close. There are also large booths which look inviting. The real story is the food--the presentation is wonderful and inventive but it's the taste, the flavors of the food that astound. It was an i-wish-i-could-lick-this-plate-clean kind of moment for the homemade ravioli with braised beef. Dessert was a special because it's not on the online menu--a homemade chocolate pudding topped with cream and that was topped with homemade popcorn with caramel and sea salt. The service was beyond poor unfortunatley--I hope that gets fixed because I can't wait to go again and try something else.

We had a nice night at 11/14.
We had a nice night at 11/14. Easy to hear each other in this posh and refined room. The food was very good, the Lobster Thermador Empanadas were excellent to start. Overall a very nice dinner. Service slowed down when the room filled to capacity, but that was the only fault we could fond. Prices were fare. Dessert was a little weak, but we still enjoyed it...

Great outdoor dining!
After reading past reviews -concerned about making a reservation here.
We had a lovely hotel room for the weekend and wanted to enjoy the restaurant .I have to say we had a fantastic experience.
They serve very good cocktails - the margarita was very good made fresh no mix !
We ordered the fried calamari and rock shrimp appetizer, different from norm with added rock shrimp, very good! We both had pasta entrées-delicious,one with lobster one that was veal rigatoni.
Beautiful decor for indoor dining -we were seated outdoors and just beautiful.
If you're in this area-perfect for outdoor dining in Spring and Summer. There's a beautiful bar area - very comfortable couch seating areas. Outdoor heaters too if it gets chilly, really lovely!

My husband and I wanted a date night out and decided to try something new. We randomly chose eleven 14 and were SO happy we did! It was so fun, romantic and delicious! We are new parents so it was such a treat to be out to begin with let alone at such a surprisingly cool spot. The decor is fabulous as is the menu. By far though, my favorite part was the cookie platter for dessert.
We are definitely planning to go back!
5/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I stayed at the Jhouse for two nights and had dinner one evening at eleven14. Both our dinners were far above what you would expect inside a hotel. Interesting menu with interesting flavors. We don't live nearby but you could go out for dinner here and be very pleased with the whole experience. Service is warm and friendly as well.

Gem in Town
We had dinner at Eleven14 on Saturday night which was our first time coming here. The ambiance is very nice, we sat on the patio and enjoyed the surroundings. Our waiter was attentive and offered some suggestions from the menus. The bread was the only disappointment, only one small slice is placed on your plate - the butter in the shape of circles (which was hard, not spreadable) was larger than the slice of bread! Our appetizers were good, we had the diver scallops and the halibut crudo. For dinner we had the special - the striped bass which was also good. The bottle of wine was very good except for the price and dessert was enjoyable.

Father's Day Brunch
We took the family to this restaurant for Father's Day to celebrate. It was our first time but we really were impressed. The girls were excited at the design and the food was top notch. The staff was very friendly and operated with class. We even stopped by the chocolate shop next door for some lovely treats. We will definitely be back to this gem of a restaurant again.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our third time eating here and we had another great experience. Service knowledgeable and attentive. Food was really good and we love the decor here. Will definitely return and recommend.

Great first time impression
Pleasantly surprised! Had been advised that it can get very noisy...it wasn't... had been told service could be slow...it was excellent. What more is there to say...we will be back!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for a lunch with kids. The place was quiet, but that's exactly what we've been looking for.
Food was delicious and service is great. We are looking forward to come back again.

Perfect spot for Sunday Brunch
This was my first time at eleven14 Kitchen and I was immediately impressed with the decor and ambiance. Very modern and chic. The outdoor terrace offered a comfortable mix of tables and sofas.
The restaurant was not too crowded, so service was attentive and professional. Menu was varied with both breakfast and lunch type choices. There was a mix of families and couples and lots of plants, so nice atmosphere and pretty surroundings. Will return for dinner!

Fun Saturday night in Greenwich!
We celebrated a family dinner at Eleven14. The hostess was helpful in accommodating us at a round table/bankette . The restaurant is well decorated in a well appointed South Beach contemporary style. Our waiter was attentive in serving and suggesting wines as well as menu specials. The appetizers were creative and delicious ( I had the tempura artichoke hearts). My dinner, a homemade ravioli with morels was delicious. My husband's pork chop was unremarkable.
There was live music in the bar area and the crowd was well dressed and lively.
( before the live music, however, the background music was uninspired)
After dinner, we moved to the outdoor patio for cocktails. There are sofas and chairs and candles making this a lovely area.

Recently had a lovely lunch with two friends. Good food, good wine, service that was friendly and allowed us to take our time, in a lovely atmosphere.

Make sure you sit outside!
Had dinner with a friend on Friday night. The atmosphere at eleven 14 Kitchen makes me feel like I'm in Miami...it has a great vibe especially for the summertime. I will definitely go back for dinner and drinks with friends when the weather is nicer (I went on a rainy night). I had oysters as an appetizer and then were very fresh, they are not on the menu so make sure you ask your server if you're in the mood for them. Another standout was the fresh fruit panna cotta, it was very light and flavorful a delicious warm weather treat. A few servers took care of us throughout the night, but Paris was the best. He always describes the food in detail and makes excellent recommendations. I'll definitely be back.

Met a friend for brunch at
Met a friend for brunch at 10am on a Sunday morning - there were only 2 other parties dining at the time so it seemed as if we were having a private meal which was great. The brunch menu is diverse and the presentation of the entrees is impressive. The quality is there and the attention to detail is noticeable. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a catch up meal with friends or a business meeting. I was impressed!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant maintains the same groovy vibe of the hotel, which itself is a surprising and refreshing alternative to the staid same-old same-old you may expect in Greenwich. The food was excellent, selection good, especially the raw bar, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. High marks all around.
Now, I'm not sure what it would feel like if you didn't know you had a room waiting for you upstairs; I'd recommend that you book one.

eleven 14 is an 11 out of 10!!!
The food and ambience are amazing. Even better the 5start service. My husband took a piece of ice from water glass to put in his drink and within seconds glass of ice and spoon arrived. We dropped an oyster fork, they picked it up immediately with a napkin and delivered another within seconds. This is our 3rd time here and now our fav local place. Wine choices are great and reasonable. Highly recommend.

Great atmosphere and Fantastic Food
We had a selection of appetizers - all of which were extremely flavorful and attractively presented. Shared entree of skirt steak and Dover Sole. Both were perfectly cooked, incredibly rich and tasty. Dessert was only disappointment - good but not out of the park. Great atmosphere - lively, good music, looks of attractive people mingling about. Waiter was informative, attentive, personable and welcoming.
We will definitely return to this restaurant and highly recommend.

Al Fresco Fun
Lovely, hip outdoor space (but protected from rain, if need be); attentive service. Smallish portions of average-to-good food. The aesthetics of the place are the draw here.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the most beautiful restaurant I have seen in Fairfield county. Outside bar and dining area was wonderful and the food absolutely delicious. Can't wait to return again !

Delicious food, friendly service
Couldn't ask for more. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. Even got visits from the manager and the chef. Super friendly staff.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was exceptional. Food, wine, and service. Shrimp cocktail with 4 gigantic fresh shrimp, perfect oysters, gluten free pasta with grilled veggies (shared as an intermezzo) tasted like pasta (which is not always the case with gluten free) and the veggies were crisp and delicious. Dover sole was just a touch chewy / overcooked, but the burger and fries (yes I ordered a burger!) was perfect. Dessert: Afogato - house made vanilla chocolate chip ice cream with a shot of espresso was scrumptious, although difficult to eat from a brandy snifter.
Outdoor seating with the retractable roof and cool bar are made us feel like we were in South Beach. Very happening bar scene, but not overly loud which was nice.
Service was impeccable.

We had to do an over night in Greenwich. Did one stop shopping. Stayed and dinned at "J House". "Eleven 14 Kitchen" was up to the task. We ate inside(chance of a shower). The staff was good and our meal was real good. Menu has enough selections to go in any direction....everything cooked to order....taste & aroma great.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was personal. Asked
Service was personal. Asked for oysters and dover sole . They produced it even though it was not on the luncheon menu. They also have a raw bar in the evening.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place for dinner with friends
Had a great meal and the service was good. The outside dining was great with the water fall, etc you wouldn't even know rt 1 was right over the wall. Although the corkage fee was extremely high.

Went for Saturday night dinner
Went for Saturday night dinner with my wife. Being in an upscale hotel, valet parking is a nice plus. Attentive host seated us immediately upon arrival. We sat outside amidst the "beautiful people" of Greenwich, in the upbeat atmosphere. The live music was mostly Rock and Folk from > 40 years ago, but drew a small crowd in the outdoor lounge area. Service was very attentive, maybe too attentive. We had the medium size seafood tower which is supposedly for 5. It was perfect for 2. Portions were adequate. I had a sushi roll which was artfully prepared and presented. We shared patee and salad, both of which were good. Overall a very pleasant dinner. It is quite pricey, but in Greenwich most places are.

We were asked if we wanted to eat outdoors, which was a nice treat. Decor is modern, exciting and clean. Food was inventive and delicious. We stumbled onto this gem and will return for Sre.

Great restaurant with great food!!!
Great restaurant with great food but disappointing desert.
I went to have dinner with a friend and after a fantastic Yummy dinner, was waiting for a perfect dessert to have a happy end. However both deserts were really disappointing.
Overall a great place to go to have dinner and hand out with friends!!!!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had dinner with a friend on Sunday evening. We enjoyed sitting outside, especially since the warm evenings are now a thing of the past, but eleven 14 kitchen kept us warm with their outdoor heaters! From appetizers to dessert we had a wonderful meal. I don't agree with other reviews saying the dessert was disappointing, we had a delicious chocolate dessert. Our server (he was bald, can't remember his name, think it started with a P) even took my dietary restrictions into consideration and requested my cappuccino to be made with almond milk which was much appreciated. He also took the time to make other wonderful suggestions . I will definitely be back and recommend to friends.

We went there for Brunch and
We went there for Brunch and it was excellent we opted to share the house specialty chocolate desert (I usually don't like chocolate) it was the perfect finish. Esli was one of the waitstaff and she in particular enhanced our very enjoyable experience.
