Please bear in mind that this review is based on our visit to Eleven South last Thursday, and it does not reflect its usually very high standards.
We visit Eleven South with some regularity. The food is almost always outstanding. However, this time we were all a bit disappointed. The lobster entrees were OK, but the amount of lobster was about the size of two large shrimp! The chicken salad was mediocre, and it was made with all dark meat.
We will continue to dine at Eleven South. Every restaurant has an "off day." No harm done. But we felt it did not measure up to its usual high standards.
Our server was excellent.
Eleven South still remains my favorite restaurant in Jax.
Went to eat here for the first time on my birthday, everything was so wonderful. We had the octopus, tuna tar tar, lobster paella, and pasta with grilled salmon over too. I can’t wait to go back and try more.
The food was scrumptious, and the service was excellent.
Wonderful food and service as always. Our waiter Preston was knowledgeable and welcoming. Our ladies’ night out ran late and we were the last table there but nobody pushed us out. Great farm to table and sustainable menu.
Food was delicious with many options in style of cuisine. A/C caused our table to be periodically be distracting and uncomfortable . Waiter did move us to another table
My husband and I went on a much needed date night and we had a wonderful experience at Eleven South Bistro. The wine selection was great, the food amazing, and the service was second to none. We will definitely be going back again soon.
Very nice restaurant . I would recommend to my friends. We were greeted by 2 very nice ladies and our server was very professional and friendly.
best place ever in Jax Beach! Definitely recommendable to everyone
We had filet mignon with the black garlic compound butter topping and it was truly the best steak we’ve had anywhere. Great wine list, great appetizers (we had the tuna tartare), perfect wedge salad. Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our dinner.
Everything was amazing! The back patio is beautiful, the food was delicious, and the service was absolutely stellar.
Duck was ambrosial! Best I've ever eaten. Service and servers were wonderful.
The food and service are always terrific here. The specials were absolutely delicious. This should at least be on your special place list or just a fabulous Friday night list of places to go.
One of the best restaurants in Jacksonville Beach. We try to eat here on every trip to Jacksonville. The staff is always very polite and knowledgeable and the food is consistently good. I had the lamb chops, which always have wonderful flavor and were cooked to perfection. My partner had the salmon which he said was superb. We love Eleven South!!!
Eleven South is always great. Arguably the best restaurant at the beach, my entree choice this time didn’t quite hit the spot. But, I tried something different, and sometimes that happens. Typically, I’m only willing to branch out like that at a place I really trust, so my willingness to do so speaks volumes.
11 South is a stylish, energetic dining experience. With a very traditional - bordering on stodgy - menu and a slick and highly efficient staff, the restaurant exudes confidence, executing everything well. Don't expect cutting edge cooking here, but you will find the food very good, the atmosphere crisp and inviting and the staff sharp and attentive. Good value for the money, just be aware that you are in Florida and subject to being seated near loud and annoying non-native Snowbirds and vactioners whose behavior can be off-putting.
Nice for a change but over rated. Be cautious on the over priced specials.
Great atmosphere for a date or special occasion. The food is marvelous.
Our waiter Austin was wonderful!
Group of four friends gathered and came early enough to have table on patio. Food, service and ambiance - tops!
Although the restaurant is fairly loud, it is a pleasant experience. The food was very good and the waiter was efficient and entertaining. It was a fun evening.
Awesome in every way
Spectacular experience in what has to be one of Jacksonville Beach’s best restaurants. A can’t miss!!
What a find! One of the best fine dining restaurants in Florida.
Great food service and atmosphere every time we have been there. Our server Jack and restaurant staff were great as always.
This was our third visit to this restaurant, and once again we were extremely pleased with our experience. Our server provided us with excellent service and explained the special menu offerings for the evening. He also recommended wines which would pair well with our entree selections. Everything was delicious and the service was outstanding.
My lady’s halibut was done to perfection, my scallops couldn’t have been better. Our server Christen was personable and knowledgeable about the food. Great time!
We reserved a table for Valentine’s Day and we’re so happy we did. 11 South is known for excellent food and drink and this night was no disappointment. We started with a single malt Scotch and a house special martini, and had the grilled Spanish octopus and scallops for appetizers. I’ve never had more tender octopus, even in the Mediterranean...and her app was delicious as well.
For entrees, we went for the lobster paella and rack of lamb. Again, each was perfect, cooked to temp and a wonderful mix of flavors, spices and tastes. 11 South does it right and we’ll be back!
A nice meal. We sat outside on the patio, and one of the heaters wasn’t working. They kept messing with it and I kept being afraid that they were going to blow us all up. Other than that, the food was pretty good, even if we were just a little bit chilly.
Loved the atmosphere on Valentine’s Day! Ladies received a rose as they were seated. The menu had a few extra items that day. The Mongolian Beef Short Rib was tender and delicious, as was the Halibut. Never disappointed at Eleven South!
Eleven South was the perfect fit for Valentine's Day date night. The staff were very attentive and polite. I was seated promptly at my reservation time. The food was fantastic and well worth the price.
Have had many great meals here, but this time around on Valentine's Day not so good. Made reservations 3 weeks prior as they are quite popular, asked for a specific area although I understand on a busy night that might not happen, got seated in the side room by some extremely loud folks, hostess noticed and said she would try and move us (unasked so great job). Another table opened up and she seated another couple (we had it ordered wine or anything yet). Don't get seated in the side room, too tight and if you are by a loud couple you will pay $300 for a dinner with them on your lap.
Love their cheese plates, they didn't have them due to the occasion, waitress mentioned even servers didn't know that until day of. Other places in this price range such as Azurea have sent notes if they are changing or having a special menu. I probably wouldn't have made reservations had I known this.
Waitress was nice but not knowledgeable.
Food was great as usual and arrived at a good pace
Only thing that was different this time than others was the guys busing the tables were all over us when our apps, food, desserts, etc weren't even for , felt pushed not by the wait staff but by the bus staff.
Maybe an off night as this place has been a go to spot most times and have a great wine list with awesome cheese selections and great food. Will try them again and hope this was an off night. Likely not on an occasion though with the menu uncertainty.
The prime rib sandwich for lunch was amazing melt in your mouth! My wife said the crab cake salad was great too. The bread pudding desert was excellent. A little pricey at $17 for a sandwich but it was good!
Enjoyed a lovely evening with my husband. I had the diver scallops and my husband had the double cut pork chop. Everything from our salad to our entree was made to perfection. Can’t ever go wrong at Eleven South!
Dinner was exceptional in every way. Highly recommend Eleven South for anyone who likes great food and great service.
A wonderful experience. Gina our waitress is so awesome the food absolutely delicious my favorite place for lunch, dinner, and special occasions.
Always delicious . We can always count on 11 South to deliver quality food and friendly service .
It was delicious!
I was with my elderly parents.
Service was fantastic, extremely attentive staff. My wife and I both loved our dishes (the special, halibut, and the salmon). Also appreciated they have local distillery Manifest products.
Our food was delicious and the service was attentive without being intrusive. A bit pricey, but good for a special meal.
