 (West Virginia)·Dined a day ago

Came to Eleven for a late Valentines Day! My date and I tried each tartare (the tuna and steak), she enjoyed the swordfish entree and I chose the ribeye. For dessert, we selected the sorbet trio and candy bar. Our meal was nicely complemented with a bottle of Trefethen Cabernet. Our server Abbie was attentive and friendly. Fantastic experience and looking forward to returning again soon!

Food was quite good - though not in line with cost. Waiter gave off the impression that he'd rather be anywhere else. Probably will not return but, again, food was very good.

Yummy, Tom was amazing and funny. We were VERY casually dressed and no one said anything. Great time was had by all. Try the tartare - slight twist on a traditional dish made it even better!!

My wife and I went here for brunch before seeing a show at the Benedum. It was our first visit to Eleven and it was fantastic from start to finish. It's on the pricier side for brunch, however it was well worth every penny. Our cocktails were delicious and well-balanced, each course of food was superb and well-timed, and our waitress was attentive without being intrusive. We will absolutely be back!

Thank you for a wonderful evening for my husband's birthday. Jonathan was an excellent and consummate waiter. He answered all of our questions and never rushed us through our evening. Mary always seemed to know just the right time to come by with the bread basket. The food was excellently prepared and cooked to perfection. Finishing our evening with capachino and various yummy desserts. Kevin said it was his best birthday ever. Thank you.

Very good date spot, went while visiting and stumbled onto this place online. The atmosphere was great, the food was amazing, the desert in particular was spectacular. The food was pricey, so it’s not an every day spot but, still, very good and worth the price.

Their dinner selection is awesome, we couldn’t decide for a while because everything sounded delectable; best steak my husband’s had in a very long time, his words not mine! Beautiful atmosphere, great service. Laura was our server tonight, she made our dining experience very fun and memorable:) Definitely recommending this place to friends and family ❤️❤️(We had the crab cake, oysters as appetizers, I ordered the Scottish salmon and my husband ordered the Strip Steak- DELICIOUS- ended the evening with warm apple pie companied with pomegranate and dried cranberries❤️

It's unbelievable that after many years Eleven is still great. In fact, I measure all "excellent" restaurants against Eleven. There are many restaurants in Pittsburgh that are good but fall short of the Eleven experience.

A review would take too long to write if I touched on everything wonderful about 11. They went out of their way to make a special night even more special. From the moment we walked into 11 at the door and were greeted by staff who were warm and welcoming, to Johnathan who was an outstanding server, this was amazing. Thank You to all at 11 that made this so special.

Happened upon this for a Sunday evening dinner and were delightfully surprised. Food was superb, as was the wine recommended. Service was warm and personal. I personally did not care much for the ambient music, but it was not loud or at all objectionable. We intend to come back often.

Went for my husband’s birthday brunch. Had several coupons from Big Burrito and they graciously took them all and treated us like stars anyway. Amazing meal as always - sticky bun, omelets, breakfast brioche, lox and bagel, burger (there were 6 of us!) and the bread! OMG the bread. Service was excellent and we all left well sated and eager to return.
