We went for brunch for my wife’s birthday and were a little disappointed when we realized the brunch menu was different from the lunch menu (our mistake). My burger was very good but my wife ordered the BLT and one slice of the toast was burnt. It was obvious that the kitchen was aware of this because the burnt side was on the inside of the sandwich and smothered with aioli and avocado to try to cover it up. I was surprised that a sandwich would be served this way at Eleven. We will get over it. It’s the first time we were not totally happy with our experience. It might have been because we were at the end of the lunch/brunch seating.

The food was delicious and the presentation excellent.

Highlight of the evening was service from our waiter. We were originally seated next to avery loud quartet. Edward graciously accommodated our request for relocation and provided excellent service throughout our meal. He should be commended.

I wanted to try this highly recommended restaurant while I was visiting town. The food was conceptually fine, but I was mostly unimpressed with the service. The host’s tone was dismissive and he did not even attempt to share how long I’d have to wait for my table to be ready. The bartender took great care of me and provided the best service of the day. Once seated, I was somewhat disappointed with the server’s inability to understand my requests. She was stand off-ish in a way that was unpleasant. When I asked about the valet, she did not offer to have my car pulled around at the conclusion of my meal. For a restaurant purporting to be upscale, this should be a no brainer. And the food: I really enjoyed my asparagus and morels appetizer but I felt as though the seafood tasting was over complicated with an array of items from pole beans to potatoes with some squash and zucchini thrown in the mix. The ambiance was nice, the decor was lovely, but when the service doesn’t match the memory of experience is clouded by those personnel failings.

The food at 11 is good but not superb. Our service was good initially, but we vet waited a very long time for the server to take our check. It is quite noisy because of the high ceilings and reverberation. However, those things being said it is still a very nice place to dine.

The food is always amazing! A perfectly prepared steak, great apps and seafood. I can’t give a higher score for ambiance because the tables are a bit close. You can’t help but hear all of your neighbors conversations.

We have dined at Eleven several times in the past year.
Normally great food and service. Neither on our last visit.
Our server was disinterested at best. When he arrived at our table, he neither smiled
or offered any details on the menu. When we informed him we were not ready to order,
he replied that when ready "we should close our menus and place them on the table" . Then he would return ?? REALLY - Wow
He never did return. Another server stopped by and took our order.
Our meals were mediocre at best. All were over salted.
No plans on returning anytime soon.

Eleven has very consistent food and an extremely well trained staff. Everything is always wonderful. I rarely get chicken when I eat out... but Eleven’s roasted Chicken is the best anywhere!!! Sunday brunch is also phenomenal. I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant... My wife and I eat out very often and this is easily in our favorites, and the staff and management always make it a phenomenal experience.

Had the most wonderful experience whenever I took my significant other here for their birthday. The Lamb Belly and the Mussels we ordered were fantastic and we were pleasantly surprised about the portions. The wait staff was attentive, with timed check backs, and quick clearing of used dishes and utensils. Definitely would recommend to anyone who enjoys a romantic atmosphere, delicious food, and an extensive wine selection.

Used our birthday credits from Big Burrito--everyone loved their meals, but my halibut had an incredible combination of tastes and textures--the favorite pick that night. Resolved to come more often!

Waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was delicious! We got the pork chop and swordfish and would recommend both (though the preparations/sides do change often so could be different). While entrees are in the $30 range, you do get a lot of food.

Eleven has continually gone down hill and is a huge disappointment from the big burrito group !! We were told by some people that a new chef was bringing eleven back to par so we decided to try it tonight . Well the menu looks very similar to the old boring menu of the past . That being said we stayed open minded . The restrooms were dirty and dark. None of the candles were lit and the overall appearance of the restaurant looks worn and in need of a good deep cleaning and some new furniture. The bartender when I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio tried to talk me out of it saying their Pinot isn’t very good . Then we sat down in bar to wait for table and hostess forgot to come get us so we just ate at the bar . Service was subpar and our appetizers and meals were awful . We left saying this is a do not return period . Bread tasted stale and our food was soooo so salty that we literally felt horrible for a few hours after we ate . This restaurant lacks good quality food and atmosphere and does not deserve to be in a class called fine dining !!!!!!!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here recently. The food and drinks were incredible. The only low-point of the evening was on the service end. Even before ordering a drink, our waiter was dismissive and unfriendly. A poor facet of an otherwise great experience.

Food always excellent. Service from Miles was outstanding and he kept us on track so we could arrive at our show downtown in time! We never hesitate to take clients to Eleven!!!

Must say....it’s FREEZING in there though. We had to put sweaters on on a beautiful summer evening.

Four of us went to Eleven for a celebration dinner. We ordered an appetizer, bottle of wine, our meals, and 2 desserts. The service and ALL the food were EXCELLENT! They even decorated one of the desserts with a Congratulations edible sign! The restaurant is very nicely decorated although we did feel it was a bit overpriced. The only other issue was when we were trying to pay, no one was giving us any attention and after a while, we sought someone out.

We had excellent service from the check-in to our departure. Our waiter, John, was superb, offering just the right amount of attention. Our entrees included shark, halibut, seafood tasting and tenderloin. Everyone devoured every bite. Each couple shared the tomato salad, which was plated beautifully. The taste was sensational. If these were half salads it would have been impossible to eat an entire one. We were given a very private booth upstairs because we asked for a place to have good conversation. Our only problem was that the sun was so bright outside that the couple whose backs was to the sun appeared to be in silhouette all evening. Not even a slight complaint about anything else the entire night! We love Eleven!

The Big Burrito company never fails and Eleven has surpassed all previous meals at other company restaurants. Eleven is a MUST TRY!!!!! The service is wonderful. Olivia catered to us like you wouldn’t believe. I have celiac and she was so thorough when talking through options and talking with the kitchen staff to ensure i would not get sick. Each dish was better than the next. The duck confit salad was like a meal in itself. I am not a seafood person, but tried the swordfish and WOOOW!!! So fresh and flavorful.
Not only was the service and food amazing, but the second floor outside seating makes it like you are not in the city. Quiet and just enough breeze and sun!!!

The fixed-price brunch offered a variety of delicious choices from beverage options to appetizer tand entree. Being unable to resist the incredible treats in the bread basket, most of us took food home to enjoy the next day. I would definitely return.

Edward was a great servicer/host. Knew the menu, great recommendations and able to put up with our silly humor. The sommelier was fantastic! Two great choices from the wine list that she was able to recommend and that the whole party really enjoyed. We were our usual impressed with dinner and the evening, but to have our guests thank us for taking them to Eleven because they enjoyed it so much was the highest compliment we both can get. Thanks again!

My favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food is fresh, local, inspired farm to table. The staff is outstanding from host/hostess to waitstaff. The bartender knows her cocktails and is a deft hand at making them. Not stuffy or pretentious. It's just exceptional food in a relaxed business casual environment. I've been several times already and will return several times more. It's just that good on many levels.
