First time here... Everything was delicious! The creme brulee for our anniversary they gave us was one of the best I've ever had (perfect). My wife got the Goat Cheese Chicken and I got the halibut special (blackened) with crawfish etouffee. Both were incredible... We'll be back!

We enjoyed celebrating our daughter’s birthday from apps to desserts. The wine list is outstanding and everyone’s meals were outstanding. And the service was the best. Our server Kathern was the very best!!! We will always request Kathern even though we enjoy the whole staff. Well done 11 South!!

I frequently dine at this gem in my neighborhood. This occasion I brought someone new to the area, requested a back patio table and received it. Jeremey was our waiter and did a great job.
We'll both return, soon !

This is our favorite restaurant in the area (though we haven't been much of anywhere this past year). The food is always excellent and the noise level is manageable most of the time. We look forward to eating here more often after we get vaccinated and virus issue look to slowing down.

Food and Service was outstanding as usual! My only gripe would be that we requested outdoor dining because of Covid , and although we were seated out in the courtyard, everything was sealed off (which kind of defeats the purpose of sitting out there) and they seated another large party right next to us as opposed to spreading people out (I could hear them talking about it

Eleven South has always been a fun place to have a great meal. We had a reservation but always enjoying the bar, we found two seats available and cancelled the anniversary reservation. The hostess was very kind and agreeable to our decision. She even wished us a happy anniversary.
We were there almost 15 minutes before the bar asked what we wanted to drink, no worries. The Eleven South martini for a drink starter hit the spot. The apps were very good, mussels and escargot.
I ordered the large filet medium rare and the brussel sprouts side. My bride ordered the pear salad. The filet came out warm but not hot and the meat was like a piece from Publix. No offense to Publix but the best selections come from other places. The brussel sprouts were also just warm and not special at all. The bride said the pear salad was very good. Hard to mess that up. Well, I guess you can, but...
The red wine was exceptional, always is!
The vibe was awesome, I just didn’t feel Eleven South’s food for me lived up to their high standards of my past visits. I will try again, but please keep it more on point!

Beautiful ambiance, truly fantastic service, and delicious food. We absolutely love this restaurant and it has earned all the accolades it receives.

Except, we will wait until we are fully vaccinated before we return as the tables “outside” were extremely close together, not 6 feet apart and only staff were wearing masks - customers walking to and from the restrooms were not. The setting was actually reminiscent of pre Covid times which unfortunately, due to our age and the sharp rise in Covid cases, made us uncomfortable to the point we left without having dessert.

The experience was excellent. Certainly someone who is phobic about COVID might wish to dine here at a later date.

Hoping for a more quiet intimate experience. The noise level was loud and festive. Will avoid that issue in the future by not dining at peak times.

The food was delicious. Fish dishes cooked to perfection. The nuance of flavors was wonderful. Portion size was generous. Wine list was thoughtful and reasonably priced. I will definitely recommend this place to friends. The only down side is the lack of parking.

This place is amazing!! The food is definitely something to write about. Everything that we order was delicious and well made. The chef is really good!!! And just so you know, I am a picky eater and I like to go to high end places to eat and this is up there with the quality!
The bread....OMG super yummy! The only problem that I encounter in this place is that we are in the middle of a pandemic and the place was packed of people inside without masks:-Obviously we made reservations to eat outdoors but we had to come in to go to the patio and that was crazy....covid hub for sure!
But what a great place to have good food and wine:-)

I don’t understand why you have valet parking. It would have been much quicker to walk to the car rather than stand outside in the cold.

Everything was excellent from Tuna Tartare to Octopus and the entrees. Only comment is that the Paella was miss leading as it was too bright and not baked in. Seafood in it was good.
