I wasn't sure about ordering the Shrimp and Grits, a distinctly Southern dish that I'd not tried. Me and my friends were all very pleased. My only suggestion — create and sell a cookbook with some of the recipes from your menu!
wonderful food, good, service and lovely view. I woudl highly recommend it. Prices were reasonable too.
Pork chop entre with grilled cabbage was excellent! Music so nice. The setting fabulous.
We chose to have brunch here because we were visiting Crystal Bridges and it was convenient. The location is lovely...terrific views of the amazing museum and its surroundings through enormous windows on both sides. The food was adequate. My friend's quiche was lukewarm and dry. My shrimp and grits were tasty but too oily (I've had better, but that was in Charleston!). Perhaps it's better to stick with simpler dishes like burgers and sandwiches. The bloody mary's were CHEAP ($5) especially by New York standards! The meal was fine, however, for where we were, and the service and ambiance were very good. They do book up, so reservations are recommended!
Although the ambience is stunning, I am not sure it made up for the overpriced average to poor quality food. The pork chop was almost inedible as it was so tough and the lamb was very fatty. However on the bright side the chicken was pretty good, but too expensive for chicken. It is a shame as it is such a lovely setting.
It was my wife's birthday. It was a perfect day to spend indoors as the area experienced very heavy storms that day. We really enjoyed visiting the museum and found the art to be beautiful. It was an incredible journey back in time that we all seem to overlook in our busy lives, especially, the Soul of the Nation. We loved the peaceful and interesting ambience of the museum as well as, the dining experience being both food and staff. Thanks, Scott & Julita Winter - Fort Smith
Food was very good but our service was slow getting our receipt and paying.
Love this restaurant at Crystal Bridges Museum! great food in a lovely setting.
Easter brunch was overall a very enjoyable experience. Limited menu selection and small portions.
Eleven is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at.
Eleven is a wonderful experience, and I'll definitely be back. The menu, which features special dishes that coincide with the exhibits at the museum, is creative and fun. ..and the cocktails are superb! I enjoyed two visits thus far, and look forward to many more. We're so happy to have something so exciting and fun to experience, so accessible to us here in NWAR.
Food was good, but not very big portions at all! Paid $29 for New York strip and just got 3 slices. 3 tiny carrots, half a stalk of celery and 1.5 red potatoes. Asked for med-well done and got no red in the meat. Not up to the usual standards. Music was excellent.
We had a wonderful meal before visiting the Soul of a Nation exhibit. The museum has great energy and ambiance. Looking forward to a return visit.
I have always loved the food and the appearance. Several in my party were disappointed in the new style shrimp & grits. It was my favorite dish, but we did not like the new recipe.
Delicious dinner beautifully and graciously served. Happy hour drinks and appetizers were innovative and delicious as were our main courses! The dinning area is lovely and serene with water and gallery views. It delightful to dine there at sunset. Though we’re a two day drive away is our second visit to the museum and will return at the first opportunity.
Really poor experience. Scallops were over cooked and chewy and the waitress was terribly slow inspire of only about 5 tables being occupied and not all of them being her responsibility. The atmosphere was great and and the views over the water are amazing. Wish the meal matched the location.
Orders were wrong, they took a really long time to fix, food was meh like they had been sitting for awhile. The chicken Marsala was not anywhere near as described, no gnocchi, tiny piece of chicken that was drenched in a pepper infused oil of some kind. Where was the cream sauce? Kind of disappointed, seriously.
We go to Eleven quite often and enjoy it very much.
We have eaten here a few times and really enjoy the space. Although we enjoyed our food, drinks and surroundings, we think they need to work on varying their menu. For a restaurant like this, we also think the shrimp and grits need a better presentation, especially for this type of restaurant. We will definitely return and recommend going, we just think there need to be a few improvements.
Food was great - the liver pate was a bit rich - innovative cocktails - fabulous service - a fun time had by all.
Great evening together with friends: great food prior to going to the Great Hall for a presentation of an evening of Florence Price Chamber Music with violinist Er-Gene Kahng and friends.
A lovely evening for art and food!!! I enjoyed my dining experience. I can't wait to visit again when I am in the area.
We went for brunch, the service was great, food selection was good and priced were very reasonable. We both had Shrimp and Grits and they were delicious! We had them add the Poached eggs which were really a nice addition. We also had an order of the Figgy Cake Dessert which was also great. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone
Wonderful. Great Food!
We are so glad we decided to give it a try! The food was amazing!
Service was impeccable. Server’s knowledge of food and menu was impressive. Food, though, was a disappointment. Chicken Marsala was tasteless and no lingering flavor of Marsala wine. Risotto was bland. Beer cheese soup had some flavor. Beautiful location. Crystal Bridges just needs to make the food world class, like the museum, its art, and building.
Took my wife their for Valentine’s Day and it didn’t disappoint. Did the chef’s special and the served me biggest bone in ribeye known to man. Will definitely be be back.
Great Valentine’s Day dinner with special menu
Lovely. Scallops were delicious. Bummed that they ran out of the crime brûlée but the cheesecake was good.
A beautiful venue, great staff, but food was a little disappointing. Atmosphere to die for...food not so much.
Great Valentine's Day dinner. The staff were great. The ambiance was perfect. We opted for the dinner for two special. It was amazing! The steak was HUGE! Scallops were perfectly prepared.
This was one of the best meals we’ve had in years. I would highly recommend! We went to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful time and an absolutely incredible dinner and dessert.
Was less than impressed. Our waiter was bizarre. Did these weird dancy turns around the table and was quite rude. Made us very uncomfortable. Food was okay-ish, but very bland and extremely over priced.
This brunch was perfect for friends getting together after an absence. The food was good (not remarkable) service was great and the poker was comfortable.
Shrimp and grits were fine. Quiche not so good. It was cold. I should have sent it back to be heated.
Good food, attentive service, unparalleled environment! Love It!
Great food, beautiful setting! Crystal Bridges is an awesome setting and someplace everyone in NW Arkansas should visit and support.
Very good Sunday brunch. Great atmosphere and delicious food.
It is a great experience to eat in this beautiful room built over the water. The food is always well prepared and they offer a great selection of foods. Plus you can visit the museum exhibits afterwards.
