Food and service were outstanding.

Little concerned when we walked in the front door and there were about 10 people congregated by the front door with no masks. They could have ask them to moves away from the door and into the bar area since they all had drinks in their hands. We had to walk right thru the middle of them to get to the reservation desk.

Other then that, never a disappointment.

The Thanksgiving plate was absolutely amazing. We also ordered the rack of lamb and it was incredible. Our waiter was attentive and gave good recommendations. The service could not have been better. One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time.

Spent Thanksgiving holiday and now decided it may be every year moving forward. The food was outstanding. While always wonderful menu choices, we ate the traditional thanksgiving special. Still craving more.

Our first time at the restaurant. We sat outside due to covid. The outside area was nothing to shout about. I did walk through the inside of the restaurant which was very nice. The lunch memo was excellent and the service friendly and knowledgeable.

We were there on the occasion of my wife's birthday. There were 5 of us and we appreciated the good service, good food, and the complimentary glass of champagne for my wife. That was a very nice touch.

Paella was gross. Rice was mushy/soupy and seafood flavorless. Drinks were well made and waitress was pleasant and attentive. Overpriced and overall a very disappointing experience. We won’t be back.

Went early to avoid too many people. Quiet room. Server masked and was attentive well informed about the menu and specials. Delicious scallops. Escargot a bit over cooked. Red snapper special was on point. Risotto a rad on sweet side but equally delicious. Nice wine list. Fabulous coffee to end a wonderful meal. Always great.

11 South does the best Faroe island salmon on the planet.
I hope they will consider making the black bean chilli permanent on the menu. It was super the day and it was so delicious!

I ordered the short rib and the pumpkin risotto was awful. It wasn't cooked enough and was crunchy and flavorless. Normally the food is great, wish I had ordered something else.

The food was pretty good overall with most guests satisfied. My snapper (evening sepcial) was a little salty but still tasty. One of the two desserts, the creme brule, was spoiled but the breadpudding was very good. The serivice was terrible with drinks taking 12-15 minutes to get, only seeing our server a few times and when we did he seemed annoyed. We all debated returing and everyone was on the fence as they enjoyed their food but not the service.

Our favorite restaurant in the Jax. beaches; we dine here whenever we are in town. Large menu with with fish, fowl, and red meat; although I can't remember when I last ordered from the menu. I typically choose a daily special - they are always enticing. Nice wine list. Always good service (Elsa J. this most recent visit. Thank you, Elsa). The main dining room can be very noisy if it and the bar area are both full (not a lot of separation). If the weather is nice, request the covered patio in the back - quiet conversations can be held there. However, I would still dine inside and shout to be heard if I had to - the food and service are that good.

It was my 30th birthday and it was worth every penny. My husband and I loved our meals and our wine. Unfortunately we had to hurry our dinner to catch the nights entertainment and our waiter still made my birthday extra special with probably the best creme brûlée I’ve ever had in my entire life. So worth every penny

Steak was overdone. Waiter seemed annoyed at the amount of time we took to order....rolled his eyes at one point. Never came back to ask how our meal turned out. Very disappointing. I go there for lunch frequently and always pleased. My husband's first time. Needless to say, he was not impressed. 😔

Excellent escargot. Good octopus appetizer with the gigante beans being the star. You should throw a few of these beans in every dish lol. Great Caesar dressing. Pork chop was very tasty but a little tough for sous vide. NY strip special was perfect. Nolets gin cocktail (French Quarter) was fantastic. Service was perfect. Always there when you needed them but not intrusive. All in all an outstanding experience.

Just do not feel as though the pandemic is a priority. Other restaurants do much better. Hard, reusable menus, hard, reuseable Amex holders and somewhat lax on mask use. No social distancing.

Disappointing. When the honeycomb on the cheese plate is the highlight of the entire meal, you know there’s a problem. Everything needed some seasoning and flavor, and attention to how the food is plated. The spinach sise was a pile of unseasoned wilton spinach. The wild rice would/could have been appealing had it not be swimming in a tasteless watery sauce. The fish was rubbery due to overcooking. We hope things tuen around for this restaurant because we have had great steaks there in the past.

Food was outstanding! Our server was just an order taker. No suggestions, enthusiasm or selling. He did the minimum. The busser was very efficient though.
