Service was slow due to kitchen delays. Server was efficient and friendly. Order received was incorrect however addressed and staff showing care. The breakfast pizza was terrible and returned. Eggs Benedict good as always. I received a message from open table that I would not receive points for this visit after I left??

Stars:
5 Stars to Leslie our server. She's a consummate professional who knows off the top of her head. Make sure you ask to be seated in her area.

5 Stars to the Upstairs Bartender. Forgot your name, but not your expertise.

5 Stars to the Manager Robert (?). Took 110% care of us when things went wrong

4.5 Stars to the atmosphere. Little dark to see menus though.

5 Stars to the Pastry Chef. You saves the day!!

0.5 Stars to the rest of the Kitchen. Inedible main course is f Sea Bass and Filet Mignon.

I still recommend you go here. I'm sure they'll fix that kitchen.

Lastly, I'm going to give them another chance... Soon.

Chilean sea bass. Fish was dry and chewy. So it was too expensive for a little piece of dry fish

Trying to visit locally owned restaurants during the pandemic so we made a reservation at Anson 11. The reservation was confirmed 4 times - once on Open Table, once via text and twice with phone calls. Overkill maybe but I get it, during Covid the restaurant wants to make people show up for their reservation. The table an ambiance was great, but unfortunately our waitress and food was average at best. Disappointing for a fine dining establishment. In the past couple months we've been to Ambar, Cafe Central and Taft Diaz. Unfortunately, Anson 11 doesn't compare to these other fine dining restaurants.

It was nice! One party in the dining area was a bit loud and annoying, but we overlooked them and enjoyed our evening. Our waitress was a delight and the food was excellent! Validation of parking is definitely appreciated! Great Job all around!

Excellent top class food. Great quantity and and finish, which is to be expected for the price. The value is absolutely there. Between 30-50 per entree and 9-14 for a side. Drinks are reasonably priced, unique and tasty and the whole meal left us full and very happy, even after the check.

The restaurant was closed at that time and on that day! I never got a notification that the restaurant was going to be closed. I drove ( about 40 miles ) from Las Cruces to El Paso for the dinner. We were embarrassed!!! So poor!!

Our 28th Wedding Anniversary. Hostess was not very friendly or welcoming, seating was just ok. We were seated directly next to the only other party in the entire @fine dining “ area. Our waitress was fine, but waiter at the table next to us proceeded to tell his whole life story in volume. We were trying to have a nice romantic evening to celebrate and it was totally disruptive, ruined the mood and ambiance. As for the food, we ordered charcuterie board and it was mostly ok. We ordered a house salad which had extremely hard, unripe avocados. Any cook/chef knows that is inedible. We ordered 3 entrees between the two of us as we wanted a little bit of everything to celebrate. The filet and shrimp were what you would expect from any typical steakhouse, the lamb chops and belly were extremely fatty and tasted horrible, we also ordered the duck breast which was disgusting and gamey and had to send back. Traded it for the lobster risotto which was gritty, tomato based, bland and not very creamy. Overall, a very disappointing experience and would not recommend or return.

The entree was a roasted chicken. It was very dry and had no seasoning. My friend who also ordered it, said it tasted too game-y (Cage free) I didn't taste that but if you don't like meats to have this taste then don't order the chicken.

We ordered the Crab cake appetizer and it was spicy . This coming from a woman who adds chile to almost everything. I didn't like the cumin season in the dish.

Overall, we both liked the restaurant atmosphere and the waitress was very good. Maybe we should have chosen a different entrees.

My husband and I were seated at a small table hidden behind an oversize chair and no one came to serve us. Finally after more than five minutes a server walking by our table asked if we were taken care of and when we said no he said he would take care of us then. He was quite busy with other tables and we were left to wait a lot. After a long while we got our appetizer, but we were never given bread despite all the tables around us receiving some. When our server finally came and we asked about the bread he said that they didn’t send down enough and didn’t even offer to attempt to get us some. During our meal, he brought my husband a beer to make up for the bread without asking my husband if he wanted another one (which he didn’t, so it went to waste). The server explained that they were so busy because of the concert next door, but I don’t think that a full restaurant should mean poor service. Overall very disappointed. My husband had been to the upstairs dining room for a business dinner a few weeks before and had an excellent experience so maybe it would have been better having gone up there but we were looking for a casual dining experience.

The 2-person March special was what we expected to be good, as friends had recommended. We ordered the salmon fettuccine which was very salty. The bread first served to us was old and hard. Before we got the bread, the server had told us bread was being made. After we told the server, it was replaced a hotter one, but still hard and i broke a molar while trying to cheer on s piece. We ordered a salad that never came. We told the server and said that the entree was finished faster than the salad. When we got receipt, the happy hour queso fundido was priced as a full priced item. We were not happy. We will not return.

Making reservations is a must, especially on a theatre night. A pleasant surprise was parking being validated. With parking a problem downtown sometimes, this was an added bonus. The queso fundido was really delicious to start off. We opted for the March special, dinner for 2 with a glass of wine for $49. It was perfect before theatre fare. Service was pleasant and timely with a packed crowd. Loved the cucumber martini, too! Even better was Happy Hour prices for cocktails from 5-7. We’ll be back. It was perfect!

As always, Anson 11 provides a great atmosphere and great food. In addition, Hugo (our waitperson) provided service that was second to none. He’s always pleasant and welcoming! The manager, a wonderful young lady (whose name I just can’t remember) checked on us and was very pleasant and welcoming, too! We had a great dinner!

We made reservations for a standard table and when we arrived the hostess told us only high tops were available. We said we preferred lower seats due to someone in our party having difficulty with the higher seating. She didn’t seem to care and was quite rude. While taking us to our seat, we passed several other tables that could have been combined to seat our table of 5. We all decided that we did not want to give them our business and walked to Cafe Central which was superb!
