This visit to Eleven South for dinner was not up to its usual level of excellence. There were four of us and our waiter, Luke, seemed to be more arrogant than welcoming and friendly. My husband and I shared the chili rellenos appetizer which Luke termed as "huge". While tasty, it was far from huge, providing only about 3 bites for each of us. Price was either $12 or $13. So we felt the value was poor. Our friends shared a nice sized cheese platter and were pleased with their selections. For dinner, I ordered the half rack of lamb and asked for medium rare preparation. Luke told me that the chef recommended a medium temperature so took his advice. The sides of veggies (sun-dried tomato and spinach) and the parmesan gnocchi were delicious. However, the lamb was dry with almost no pink. And the advertised 4 ribs were more like 2. I had maybe 6 bites of meat in all. At $28, this was another poor value! My husband enjoyed his haddock special and our friends said their scallops and steak were excellent. That's why I rated the food 4 stars rather than 2 or 3. The cappuccinos and coffees were a nice end to the evening out with friends. Although this was a Monday night, the restaurant was very noisy. Midway through our meal, a group of 8 was seated behind us and they were speaking at the top of their lungs. From then on, we had a hard time hearing each other at our table. So given everything I mentioned, with so many other excellent restaurant choices, I am not sure I will want to go back to Eleven South any time soon.

Chicken was not cooked properly. The room was so loud I could not have a conversation with my husband. There was a party of about 8 that thought they were the only ones in the restaurant.

11 South continues to deliver! I am giving only 4 stars on the food because my wife thought her fish special was a bit lacking in flavor. Otherwise, a great experience.

Last fine dining before we move up north after 10 years in Jax. Eleven South has been one of our favorites. We had the artisan bread, tomato bisque soup and ceasar salad as apps - all excellent. For Entrees we got the chicken dish and a red snapper special. Both excellent but one minor complaint. The chicken should not be servced in a bowl - it is difficult to navigate and cut. Portions are good - not huge but not small as some other restaurants in Ponte Vedra serve. Overall value is excellent for what you get. And of course, the wine selection is great.

All in all we will miss Eleven South.

Eleven South is always a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion.
The food and service is excellent. It bothers us that we have to order and pay for
bread but at least the bread is good!
Certain tables are very noisy and try to get quieter ones when we go.

Overall, a very pleasant experience. The service was exceptional. Water glasses were promptly refilled, and the timing of the meal was spot on. The bar was able to make a requested grapefruit martini that was not on their menu and it was delicious. Loved the ambience, however the noise level is very loud. Food was delicious, especially the veal chop Oscar, but both our meals and sides were not served as hot as we prefer. Brussel sprouts with bacon were delicious but whipped potatoes were very bland.

Seated initially in the main dining area which is next to the bar. Extremely noises. Our waitress offered to re seat us outside which was much quieter.
Waitress was outstanding. Very attentive to us even though the restaurant was full. Food was very good and they were flexible on how your desired entree was presented.

Yes, for the food and service, but not for the noise level or for a first date! We couldn't even hear each other, had to repeat ourselves several times, and we were about as far away from the bar area in the dining room as we could get! Painfully loud until about 9pm when it finally became barrable, and this was on a Wed. night! Can't imagine what a Friday sounds like in there!

Eleven Ocean was everything we expected and more! An outstanding dinner complete with delicious appetizers,drinks and meal. Everything was perfect! The cheese tray and charcuterie selections were perfect for our group of 6. The wedge salad was one of the best I have ever had! The Alaskan Halibut was cooked to perfection!

One of our favourite restaurants in the Ponte Vedra / Jax Beach area. Usually it would be all 5's but my wife's fish was overcooked slightly so little dry. All else was excellent as always. The tuna/avocado tartar appetizer is to be highly recommended. Service is always first class. Still one of our favourite places.
