Built right on the bank of the Guadalupe River, 1011 Bistro offers the most spectacular view in Kerrville. You will find something in our menu for a special occasion, family gathering, or just kick back with friends and a bottle of wine on our open terrace.

Our menu features some French and American specialties, as well as some Italian classics, with a touch of Texas. Appetizers include our famous Mussels in broth, baked Crab Cakes and crispy Calamari. You can also find salads, pasta dishes, steaks and fish. Did we mention all our desserts are homemade?

Our extensive wine list has something for everyone… California Cabernets and Zinfnadels, Italian Chiantis and Pinot Grigios, Malbecs from Argentina, and Australian Shiraz. Our menu is definitely wine-friendly.

The food was amazing and the wine selection was great. Tomas has a little jewel tucked away on the river in Kerville. I drive in all the way from Houston to eat at his restaurant. Thank you for a great birthday meal Tomas!

Once again a delicious meal! The Sea Bass is our favorite along with sharing the Texas Tuscan Salad. The Sour Dough bread is always hot and delicious as well as the Whiskey Cake with warm Caramel Pecan drizzle. Other favorites are the Lamb Shank entree, the Burrata appetizer and the Duck entree. A favorite in Kerrville!

We celebrated our Anniversary/ Birthdays here and loved everything about it. Quick efficient service. Accommodated our last minute requests(twice) and I would love to go back here. Food was exquisite from the sea bass to the steak which was so tender and juicy

Excellent meal and service, my wife and I really enjoyed it. Tuna appetizer was wonderful, entrees of lamb and ribeye were both very nice and that whiskey cake finish was heavenly. Will definitely be back the next time we pass through Kerrville!

We've been going to 1011 Bistro off and on for a few years and they have yet to disappoint! We went for our 8th anniversary this year and the wine, and food were perfect! The Filet Mingon, duck breast and all three desserts were beyond perfect as was our waiter! 10/10 will for sure be back!

Great place! Calamari was superb; salmon was very good, and whiskey cake was the perfect conclusion. Wait staff was spread a wee bit thin, but the ambiance and the wine make that inconsequential. We’ve been there two times in two weeks.

Great music soundtrack. Food nearly perfect. Sweet potato gratin not thoroughly cooked. Green beans overcooked. Steak and soup perfect. Service good. Guest had a kid with a loud computer pad. Should have been corrected. Incredible views.

We had a lovely evening. We booked ahead so that we could sit outside with views of the river. There are only 3 tables outside so if you want to do that, we recommend that you book in advance. Food was lovely. We ordered the sea bass and salmon. Kiwi / Lime semifreddo for dessert. Yum!

Very disappointed in 1011 Bistro after reading rave reviews on many sites. I will not hold them accountable for a limited menu due to any closure they have suffered. Nor, will I hold them accountable for me not knowing that they do not offer full bar service. However, I will hold them accountable for very bland and mediocre meal. Appetizer: Crab cakes with lemon aioli. Crab cakes were prepared and tasted like they came out of the freezer section at Dollar General. They would do well to go to the fresh fish counter at HEB and stock up on fresh Maryland crab cakes. 1011 Bistro’s crab cakes tasted of cardboard and overcooked. Lemon aioli had no flavor. Entree: Sea Bass was okay. Almond crust was good. Black rice was undercooked and not seasoned. Roasted carrots were under cooked and not seasoned. Seafood pasta was tasteless, no seasoning.... or even salt. Shrimp was good but stood alone and didn’t seem part of the dish. The entire meal was totally blah! We will give them high marks for excellent service.

We started with the tuna tostadas which were perfectly spiced with a delicious combination of textures. My husband ordered the duck and I had the filet. Every bite was delicious. Our outside table had a view of the river and we were able to enjoy the sunset during dinner. Our waiter was professional and friendly. The restaurant is compliant with COVID-19 protocols.
