    We went for our anniversary with 2 friends from out of state. We all loved our food. The Beet salad appetizer and the tuna tartare was wonderful. 2 of us had chicken very good and moist and 2 of us had salmon also very good. They came out with a cute Happy Anniversary desert. Great place highly recommend.

    Eleven serves perhaps the best tasting brunch in Pittsburgh. Our party of four shared most dishes so we all tasted a wide variety. Some of the highlights: Appetizers Short rib and egg - best dish of the morning Smoked salmon - best I have had in Pittsburgh Sticky bun - embarrassingly good. The embarrasment came from people licking utensils like they were crack. Beignets - very good though the sauce is the highlight. If you have to choose between sweets, go with the sticky bun. Mains Asparagus omelet - fantastic Roasted chicken salad - the name is a bit deceptive. There is chicken and a salad but it's not "chicken salad". Thant's okay because the roasted chicken was perfectly cooked - juicy meat and crispy skin. The beets were heavenly. Prosciutto cotto - exceptional - slightly better (in my wife's opinion) than the asparagus omelet Pro tip - ask for their homemade hot sauce

    We declined the first table and very happily the receptionist sat us at another table without any hesitation. The food was delicious, we thought the calamari was exceptional!!! Acknowledgement of my birthday was a nice, sweet surprise. No matter which Big Burrito restaurant we go to we always look forward to eating there again! What a treasure for Pitsburgh :)

    I recently ate dinner at Eleven with a work colleague. The restaurant was very highly rated based on reviews, but our food was decidedly poor. I've never had a tuna tartare that appeared to be blended into a pinkish/grayish color, or a "seafood tasting" that was unappetizing. Perhaps we came into dinner with higher expectations, but this was a real miss. hopefully others will have a better experience. for the record, the ambiance and server were very nice.

    We have enjoyed Eleven for many years and this visit did not disappoint. Pre dinner service at the bar was outstanding and attentive. Veal & Pork Meatballs / Scallops appetizer was delicious. Tenderloin and pasta dinners were on point. Seating is the only area we seem to be challenged with when we go. Booths are always taken and end up in a less desirable table.

    Everything was fantastic. We were there for my son’s 14th birthday. Our waitress (cannot remember her name. Dark stylish glasses) was amazing. Informative and knowledgeable. Everyone was attentive without being overbearing. Def pricey but appropriate for the quality of food and experience. Also, they did a Happy Birthday in my son’s amazing dessert. Will def return.

    We are frequest diners at Eleven and Casbah. Our experience last night was not up to Big Burrito standards. Our waitress had a “Pittsburghese”style and did not check back at our table often for pouring wine or asking if we needed anything. She did refresh water often. Although I told the check in person we were celebrating a special zero birthday, the six of us were seated upstairs at an oval table, and we overlooked the lower level. The noise was terrible, and we had trouble hearing one another. I ordered the salmon entree, and the salmon was over cooked. It was a disappointing evening.

    This may have been one of my greater experiences I’ve ever had anywhere. Me and my fiancé dined in for my birthday. The service was impeccable. Our waiter (whose name I’ve unfortunately forgotten) was perfectly attentive and around at the perfect times. He was a highlight of our meal as he was beyond nice and just added a perfect touch to our evening. We sat on the upper level somewhat secluded from the rest of the other guest and it was the perfect seating for a birthday night. We ordered two appetizers - the Veal & Pork meatballs and the Calamari. The Veal and Pork meatballs were a highlight. The sauce was flavorful and the meatballs were perfectly tender. The calamari was not to our liking because it was a little too salty, but, that did not lower the rating. Our server took it off for us and offered us a new one. Though, the flavor and the sauces on the plate were phenomenal. If we had got another order, I’m sure it would’ve been perfect. Our entrees consisted of the Beef Tenderloin & the Ricotta Cavatelli. The Beef Tenderloin was perfectly seared and cooked exactly to medium rare. The flavors from the warmed blue cheese paired perfectly with the plate. I also never expected pistachios to pair so well with such a plate but it was the perfect added bit of texture and flavor. It was phenomenal and I request this dish for everybody. The Ricotta Cavatelli was perfectly cooked. A delicious sauced paired with veggies. My fiancé got this dish. She does not love mushrooms but ate almost every bit of it (including the mushrooms). I’ve never seen her so invested in a dish. This one is such a good pick for anyone wanting a delicious pasta dish. Our waiter boxed up our leftovers and promptly brought out a dessert menu. We ordered the fluffer nutter crème brûlée. A delicious way to end the meal. This place is going to be a regular stop for us now. Perfect plates, perfect service, perfect drinks.
