We eat out quite often and look for special places to do so from Savannah to St. Augustine. Eleven South is now in our Top 10. Need more stars for the service. Great job!

This is my favorite restaurant at the beach. Depending on where you are seated the noise level can be painful. All it takes is one or two loud patrons to destroy your dining experience. I will never go back there on a weekend unless I have a table outside. They really need to address the noise issue.

Go here often for lunch with friends. Prefer to go late as the noise level seems to regress as
the afternoon proceeds. Food is good and service is always good.

My wife and I celebrate our birthdays in December with a dinner out and this year we wisely chose Eleven South. We had a fantastic dining experience over the nearly three hours that we were there. We arrived shortly before our reservation time of 6:30. The hostess had our OpenTable reservation and our table was ready. Our daughter had arranged for a bottle of champagne and it was already chilling at the table when we were seated.

Our waitress, Gina, was among the very best who’s ever taken care of us at a fine dining establishment. She knew the menu, including the evening’s specials, and after listening to our likes and dislikes offered expert recommendations for each course. Gina answered every question with detailed yet understandable descriptions of the dining options we wanted to consider. She accurately paced the meal consistent with food preparation and our pace of dining. We were neither rushed nor neglected and Gina was extraordinarily attentive without being intrusive. Gina absolutely “made” the evening truly special for my wife and me.

Our meals were delicious. Preparation showed artful attention to detail. Presentation and plating were attractive and enticing. Each course was delivered to the table at the proper temperature and had been freshly prepared. Flavors were extraordinary. Portion size is secondary to preparation and flavor, but we each finished our meal satisfied without feeling stuffed. Dessert, coffee and a bourbon digestif completed the evening’s experience with flair.

Complimentary valet parking was convenient and the attendant was welcoming on our arrival and expedient on our departure.

Previously, our local “go to” restaurant for special occasions at this price point had been Marker 32, and that is still a very good choice. But I think we will be returning to Eleven South again soon and for now, Eleven South will be our choice for special occasion dining in Jacksonville. We will certainly ask for Gina’s table again also.

Eleven South Bistro is one of or maybe the best/favorite resturand on east coast.. Great resturants in NYC & Baltimore Md but none are better than this resturant.. It is managed VERY well.. Thats easy to see by the minium turn over of staff.. I have been several times and will not go to another resturant unless my guest insist on their favorite.. For Biz its the best..

My wife had a perfectly prepared excellent tenderloin. I should’ve ordered the same thing. I ordered a goat cheese chicken Soltim boca which was not as described on the menu. The second item in the description was smoke prosciutto I couldn’t find any. And it was served In what I call a cereal bowl butwhich made near imposible to cut the semi tough piece of chicken. I stopped trying and left about 80% of it.

Thanksgiving day at 5 PM. The restaurant was mobbed. It was me and my wife and we were seated in a room off the main dining area and packed in with what felt like inches between us and the next table. We couldn't have a conversation without our neighboring table being a part of it. There was a very loud party in the main dining area that dominated the entire restaurant. Don't get me wrong, the food was great and I've eaten here before and it is consistently good. It just wan't a relaxing experience and we were very uncomfortable.

On a rainy thanksgiving day, seating for two by the window gave us privacy in a crowded dining area. The traditional meal was abundant, hot and delicious. We had enough food for the traditional left over hot turkey sandwich.

Alyssa and the bar crew made my wife and I want to become regulars. Great job. I've enjoyed every meal I've had there. The options have just the right amount of creativity without going overboard on strange flavor mixes. I also felt like I had just had a healthy meal instead of a gut balloon.

Great menu + food. Nice place.
Unfortunately, our waiter was not so great.
To begin with he was hurried & talking about menu so fast we had to have most of his spiel repeated.
We ordered the Garlic bread (that did not have garlic, just bread) & it was placed on table along with a tray of 4 delightful looking condiments to place on the bread but since we had Zero cutlery we were unable to access the condiments. Eventually he returned to table & one of the ladies at our table very nicely requested cutlery but apparently it was our fault we had none. He was rude, arrogant, & not at all nice!
Ordered Rack Lamb & asked if they had Mint Jelly, was rudely advised, "NO." I asked if he knew for certain & was briskly advised, "Yes." No attempt to check in kitchen
When main entrees came one of the ladies at the table was somewhat rudely "told" to MOVE her stuff (bread plate, cutlery etc.) so the entree could be placed. Not nice & she was taken aback.
Provided a desert menu & then after the 2 gentlemen decided & ordered we were curtly advised the Italian Parfaits we had selected were "not available." Should have been so informed when initially provided the menu. It was the manner in which we were advised (after the fact) that was especially offensive to all 4 of us.
It's a shame that a potentially awesome meal at a very nice restaurant was somewhat spoiled by the obnoxious waiter. IF we ever return we will definitely request a different waiter.
Do not live at beach so was long drive to a restaurant we all had enjoyed previously. Extremely disappointed they would have a waiter we all considered arrogant and at times even rude and nasty. We all are "Foodies" and eat at fine dining regularly. No excuse for this.

Eleven South is one of our favorite restaurants in the Jacksonville area. Very good friends of ours have just relocated to the area and we brought them to Eleven South to introduce the place and celebrate the occasion. The food and service did not disappoint. And several amazing wines were on sale at a 50% discount that evening which made the experience even better.

We sat outside on the veranda which was very nice in terms of ambiance. We know from past experience that if the bar is full, then the adjacent inside dining room becomes an inferno of noise making conversation difficult.

This particular Sunday evening, the bar was not crowded and the noise level inside was fine. But the weather was lovely and we opted to eat outside. Unfortunately the choice of music left a lot to be desired in terms of content and volume.

First visit, was tough to locate bistro but happy we found it
Bar very busy on a Thursday night for happy hour, packed no seats and standing room only
We were planning on dinner and asked for patio dining which we got. Nice place to eat and quieter. Wine choices were good, prices typical, special wines by glass were great option for me. I had teres major steak special which was awesome. Great flavor and cooked exactly to temp via sous vide. My wife's salmon was very good. Not cheap but worth the price. Great services, will be back

Lovely setting. We had a reservation for 645 and were seated right away. The water poured constantly. Our waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. The cocktails were nice. We enjoyed mussels as an appetizer. Plenty for two and good quality. I had the beet salad, which was the best flavors. They used a mandolin to thinly slice both golden and red beets and layered goat cheese between them. It had a doolop of orange marmalade and when it was all combined with the greens, light oil was simply outstanding. My husband had a nice steak cooked perfectly and I had the lobster paella, which was a small tail plus shrimp, chirizo and fish. Really remarkable. We were too full for dessert. The only downers were that the packed reaturant was very noisy and we tried to use a Visa giftcard and they said it wouldnt work. We used it the following day elsewhere without a problem.

Well, totally underwhelming and disappointing! Started off with glass of champagne for our anniversary on the house, a good app, escargot, and good wedge salad. Then there was the main course! 0ne burnt veal dish and one raw lamb chop dish. Waiter tried to help me but never bothered asking my wife. I can do rare so I ate it but it was the worst lamb chops I have ever had! Some of the veal was edible but covered up with cheese, sauce , etc. the veggies were good! They gave us a dessert and gift card for a free appetizer! Too little Too late. Very busy trendy spot so many like it better than we did. Glad they like it but we will not return or recommend.
