    Outstanding cuisine prepared and served by professionals. If it weren't for the extreme noise and the cold environment, we would frequent Eleven more. The high cost is understandable but we eat out less often to balance the costs to our budget. Keep up the good work. How about an elevator? Thanks for all the attention.

    Lovely way to have a Sunday brunch/lunch. Our serve was delightful. And the food was delicious. The air conditioner was working overtime & it was uncomfortably cold sitting eating.

    Sunday birthday brunch for husband and family. Brunch Prix Fixe offered something to suit everyone’s taste. Each serving was meticulously prepared and presented. Rather than huge servings of heavy food, we all enjoyed cappuccino, pastries, an appetizer and entree, accompanied by a fresh, lovely cocktail. Outstanding and attentive server and staff made the gathering relaxing and really special.

    Our party of four sat at a high top near the open windows in the bar area. Bar area very open, spacious and airy. Entrees were exceptionally good. Bartender and waitress were highly attentive, gracious and responsive. We recommend Eleven to anyone who wishes to have a great dining experience on the edge of the Strip District.

    Food was exceptional...salads, pork chop, swordfish, salmon. Desserts were worth the calories. our server, Brett, was terrific...the perfect balance of knowledge of the drinks and food with the right amount of attentiveness without being bothersome. the outside patio is a nice way to dine in the downtown pittsburgh area.

    The staff were kind and responsive. Our waitress was very helpful. The food was good but not great. The manchango salad recommended was average, the pasta-average, pork chop good, short rib needed to be more warm and just ok. The best part of dinner was the wine. I had the Duckhorn Chardonnay which was good but the price for a glass was steep at $19. Would I go back? Yes but not to the dining room. The bar looks like a fun place to be and the tavern menu looks interesting. The price of the food in the dining room was a little steep for the quality of food served.

    My wife and I like to go to Eleven occasionally, but for us, it is too pricey for everyday dining. We just had our anniversary, and were going to a show, so thought it would be a nice night. It turned out wonderfully! Our server Rachel was attentive without being intrusive. The food was top notch (short ribs with polenta was awesome), and there was a very nice wine selection. Overall, a great experience!

    Food was excellent and staff (waiter and trainee) was very attentive. Our biggest complaint is that we were celebrating our 38th anniversary and were seated beside a large, somewhat noisy group, which made it difficult to chat at times.

    The upstairs has poor ventilation which made it feel very hot where we were seated. And unfortunately the service was very slow. The Malbec was delish and so was the risotto.

    Eleven was a great restaurant. The ambiance was wonderful as was the service and food. However the front of the house (check-in experience and seating process) was quite impersonal and bordering on rude for a restaurant with such standing (and pricing).

    Used to be on of the best spots downtown. Food quality has gone way downhill. Swordfish was overcooked and the shrimp risotto it was served over looked and tasted like tar. Feels like Big Burrito is giving up on this place.

    I ordered the steak with Scotch egg. It was a bit too salty, but delicious all the same. I’ve had it on previous visits, and it was perfectly seasoned. I don’t care for grits, so I ask for extra veggies instead. These were wonderful. They always vary the veggies, and this time it was greens with roasted cipollini onions and mushrooms. The sauce was delicious! I ordered my steak Pittsburgh rare, and was not disappointed. I usually order the salmon appetizer, which comes with a small everything bagel. I wish it had a bit more cream cheese and capers, but still loved it.

    We like this restaurant a lot and go for special occasions. The menu felt a bit more limited than usual last night (for example, the steak, which is usually delicious, was not n the menu). The carrot cake creme brulee is delicious. I also find the wine to be a bit overpriced, but it is good. We will keep coming back!
