Overall it's an ok restaurant. Steak was a bit of a disappointment (cold and not properly cooked as we asked for) but pasta, gnocchi, burrata salad were very delicious

We didn’t have the best experience. Our starters were tasty (ceviche & crab cakes) but the main was a disaster. We had the wild catch of the day. It came out cold, the parsnips weren’t cooked through & the broccolini could have been done a bit more...it was more raw than al dente. We told our server who responded immediately, taking the cold food away and promising a replacement. (I chose to eat my cold meal but my husband’s was whisked away.) This took 30-45 minutes. While we waited our server brought out a salad so there was something to eat. When the food came out, the halibut was done properly but the accompanying veg was still not up to par. The seasonal vegetables we ordered seemed to be more of a hodgepodge of what was left in the kitchen. I’ve never known garbanzos to be seasonal.

While we weren’t impressed with the food, we couldn’t fault the service. One meal & a glass of wine were comped, and we were also given a gift certificate. Our server was very embarrassed and the manager made a point of coming out to talk to us & apologize. We were visiting, so won’t be back, only hope we caught them on a bad night.

As always, Anson11 was fabulous. We went there for dinner and drinks before the 7:30 theater. Great Lemodrops, and we had the meat lover's pizza. They were courteous, quick, and the dinner and cocktails were tasty. Thank you!

Made the reservation at 11 but doors were opened a lil after 11 (no big deal). Was never asked if we had a reservation but since there really wasn’t anyone else there, we were seated right away.

We ordered green posole, but was brought out red posole. Once our main dishes came out, the waiter really didn’t come by to check on us for refills or how our food was. The food was good but would have wished for a lil more attention.

We had reservations for their Bistro restaurant but they did not have a table available so they took us upstairs to their fine dining restaurant with the option to be able to order from the bistro menu. This restaurant is definitely very nice. Two of us opted to order from the fine dining menu and our daughter was able to order from the bistro menu. It was nice to have the option since our reservation was for the bistro. Service was awesome, the food was great! We are already making plans to return to their fine dining restaurant.

The experience was great as usual. I requested to have roses on the table for my girlfriend’s birthday. The made the napkin into a rose and had roses for her. The food was good. The good needs to be updated. For the price I expect more (not in terms of portions).

The server was not attentive, I often had an empty glass and he was so slow I started drinking my husbands tea. The chocolate cake was grainy and not tasty I didnt even finish it bc it was so bad. The mashed potatoes where a bit to much oily. The steak was grey on 1 half and the other 1/4 was pink and another 1/4 was red. Very inconsistent steak.

Always an enjoyable venue. Food is usually very good but when it doesn’t meet expectations, the management makes things right. Our last visit we enjoyed our house salad, wine, hamburger and desert. But my catch of the day was not to my liking. Host was very professional at correcting the issue. Service is professional yet friendly.

We sat in the downstairs Bistro section of the restaurant, arriving earlier than expected. We were seated immediately. From the start, the staff were very attentive and accommodating. The salads and main course were delicious and very flavorful. Ambiance was wonderful and there was a very eclectic group of patrons. The location of the restaurant near theatres, the downtown plaza and hotels makes it a convenient place to dine. They even have an outside dining area with live music.

Place was very crowded and a little difficult to navigate to our table, must’ve been peek hours. Really noisy when we first arrived. After about a half hour the place thinned our and was very enjoyable. Our servers were attentive and kind. The food was great and the proportions were perfect. I wasn’t overly full, comfortable and able to enjoy the rest of the bottle of wine we purchased. I will defiantly be keeping this place in mind for the future.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and location. Being able to make reservations was a plus for me and they validated my parking garage slip. The service was extremely poor. When we arrive (2 people) there was not many tables filled at that time. We waited about 15-20 minutes for the waiter to come take our drink order, it came about 7 minutes later. We waited an additional 15 minutes before the waiter appeared again to take our order and than we realize that the restaurant now had been filled about 75% and the table near us had their drinks and bread. When another waitress came by she served me more water and I asked why they had been served bread and drinks prior to us? She stated that fresh bread was being made. An excused. Promptly I am assume the waitress told our waiter and he came by our table now offering bread and more drinks. We kindly declined and said the other waitress handle it. From than on it was a consistent of non attention to our table for service. Sadly we were very disappointed with our food as well. My meatloaf was very salty and I had to drink 4 glasses of water. My friend has the crab cakes that was over powered with cilantro and jalapeño this not being able to actually taste the crab cakes. My friend also orderd a salad that was extremely blan and had nothing on it but Parmesan cheese. For a 50.00 lunch meal we had very high expectations and we were extremely disappointed.

I live in a town that has a large number of excellent restaurants. When I travel, I am often disappointed in the dining choices given the standard I am accustomed to enjoying. Dinner at the Bistro at Anson 11 was such a deight that I decided to return for dinner upstairs in the fine dining room of the restaurant. I am so pleased that I decided to return.

From the warm welcome to the expert server’s guidance through the menu (thank you, Nicholas) and crowned by the most delicious and well crafted courses (all seven of them) from the kitchen, every aspect of my Monday night dinner in a sparsely populated dining room was very well executed and pleasing to the palate. From the kohlrabi soup to the beet and house made burrata salad to the scallops with mole (perhaps the most surprising and delicious combination of the evening) and then to the sea bass, culminating in the complex and pleasing Abueleta chocolate pudding, no detail was out of place.

You should have no hesitation in making a reservation at Anson 11 when you visit Rl Paso. And I could argue that it is worth a special trip here just for dinner.

This is a great place - a classy place with great environment, elegant decor, awesome service, and outstanding food, all for a very reasonable price.
My only comment would be that we were seated in a really tiny table, right next to a column that was very reduced for us; we struggled our entire meal with this, but our server and the rest of the staff were really nice on helping us removing and shuffling around plates... I would suggest the restaurant doing without this small table; the rest of the restaurant has normal-sized tables that are way more convenient for everyone!
