Unfortunately Local 11ten did not meet our expectations. We arrived early and went to the rooftop bar for a drink, where the staff was not too friendly. We then went downstairs for our meal, which was a special Anniversary dinner. Our server was nice, but didn't thoroughly describe the fish of the day dish I ordered, so when it came out fried I was surprised. We are huge seafood lovers and unfortunately were disappointed with all of the seafood we had. The octopus appetizer was extremely overcooked, although the flavor was excellent- so that was really disappointing. My partner's lobster entree was quite expensive and came with a side of ceviche which was fishy. Our server didn't ask how our meals were nor did she ask why all of the ceviche was left on the plate. We are usually very easy diners and do not have many complaints. We wanted to like local11ten because we heard a lot of positive (although mixed) reviews about it. I definitely would not go back. For the price we paid for the dishes, I expected much better service and care around the quality of the dishes and food that we were served. Super disappointing.

Local 11ten is a very elegant and somewhat formal restaurant. It's a bit off the beaten path for tourists as wella as being a bit pricey, but the food, ambiance and service are all worth it. Food was fresh and delicious and the service was attentive without being intrusive. (Note to manager: Stop table hopping) The restaurant is in a former bank space that has been stylishly transformed. This was one of our favorite stops in Savannah.

Would just come back for the mussels in chorizo-based broth! Interesting food items. A bit pricey, but probably worth it.

After a slow start I was concerned about service only because there were a handful of tables filled. Once we were acknowledged, we really enjoyed the grilled octopus, and I had the scallops. Great dinner, great drinks and without us mentioning the slow start, the octopus was comped by the manager. I will be back.

The service and staff were amazing and really made the experience. All of the dishes were well prepared and you could tell that the ingredients were fresh and, when possible, locally sourced.

My husband had the octopus starter while I opted for the charred corn soup of the day. Both were amazing! We split a Caesar salad and they get props for house made dressing. I had the day boat catch - wahoo with tomato polenta and summer squash - while my husband had the hangar steak. The preparation of both were solid. My fish was a touch over cooked, which is so easy to do with white fish, but there was enough moisture in the polenta to compensate.

I’d be remiss not to mention the wine list! There are some restaurants that actually want you to enjoy the wines and be able to afford their offerings. They get top marks here and even pour some true gems by the glass.

This was a return visit this year. We live in Jacksonville, Florida and it is worth the journey. The chef is very creative. The 4-course tasting menu with wine pairings is a very good value.

Outstanding service, farm to table menu with a variety of options. I was pleased with our server's wine and food recommendations. The ambiance provided a relaxing atmosphere that allowed for good conversation with my husband without having to shout over loud chatter or music. It's a great place for a special occasion, date night, or to simply enjoy delicious food.

Everything was fabulous from the moment we walked in with our friends. In town for business and this was our last night out and this was the very best meal we had. Hotel concierge recommended. We spent 3 hours and didn’t want to leave. Celebrated a birthday . So satisfied that next day we found their sister restaurant Public and had a wonderful lunch before heading home

We enjoy the many fine dining establishments in Savannah and this was our first visit to Local 11ten. We’re very happy that we finally took the opportunity to visit.. From the Happy Hour to our dinner, it was an excellent experience. The craft cocktails and entrees exceeded our expectations and we will soon return.

Based upon reviews, we very much looked forward to dining at 11ten, making it first on our list during a recent 4-day visit to Savannah. Pluses: Waiter, good bottled water, good salads and okay wine list. Drawbacks: 2 out of three entrees were good and the third was mine. A nice piece of striped bass was overcooked and served atop a creatively conceived but blandly prepared beurre blanc sauce. I was with my family and starved, so I did not send my meal back as I would have had I been alone. You can't undo overcooked fish and I didn't want my family to wait while a new entree was prepared or to sit and watch me eat. However, for the sake of others who might order the bass I did want the chef to know what I had experienced, so I gave the waiter my review as he cleared our table. I made it plain that I had no expectations regarding the check, as I had eaten the meal. I was soon surprised to be confronted by a loud women who we assumed to be the owner/manager. She scolded me in her big outdoor voice for not letting them know sooner. When I explained that my family were happy with their meals and I did not want to ruin their dining experiences, she pressed on and admonished me to let them know "next time," Adding that she would adjust the check. There won't be a next time. No one gets to serve me a bad meal and then loudly scold me for not telling them. Oh, I added the $3.50 "adjustment" to our check to the waiter's tip.

Had a lovely meal. Space was comfortable and modern. Parking was easy. Service (Caitlin) was exceptional; personable and extremely knowledgeable. Shared the olives (very different experience but quite good). Carrot/tomato soup and strawberry sorrel salad were both really good. Duck and Veal chop for mains were major hits…chop was huge; duck 2-ways was an enjoyable offering. Way too full for dessert.
We will definitely be back!

My family and I were pleasantly surprised by this eclectic, out-of-the-way place downtown. Food was great, though different, service very good, and ambiance nice, though not too stuffy. Biggest disappointment was that the roof-top area was closed due to weather. That was one of the main reasons we chose this restaurant. But overall experience was quite good. Was interested in the tasting menu, which looked great, but the whole table wasn't into it, which is a requirement. Next time.
