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.

Love this place, been many times. I have always gotten the filet medium rare with blackened seasoning. This time, I mistakenly ordered the sirloin/shrimp and struggled to cut a bite-size piece. Notable difference. I first reported a bad review on this and am now correcting myself - thank you to the owner, Tomas, who called me and told me the "surf and turf" was a cut of sirloin, not my usual filet. I did inform the server how disappointed I was and no comment. However, in talking with Tomas, he said that the server did give me a 40% credit but failed to mention that to me. I will recommend this awesome place to everyone, as I have always done.

Bistro 1011 never disappoints. Of course the place being right by the beautiful Guadalupe always has amazing views. If you’re lucky to catch a magnificent sunset if you time it right. Service is always great and the food never disappoints. The menu hasn’t changed in a long time but at least they have their specials. The wine list is pretty good and prices are not bad compared to Fredericksburg or San Antonio.

This was my third dinner at the Bistro. I always dine on the deck, overlooking the River. Excellent, tranquil view. I recommend that the Bistro invest in the propane heaters for use on the deck, on the more chilly evenings. Excellent, reasonably priced wines, and excellent food quality and preparation.

The 1011 Bistro is the best restaurant in the Hill Country. Located on the shore of Kerrville's Town Lake on the Guadalupe River. Each item on the menu is superbly prepared. I recommend the Quail with Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potato mash. The wine list is limited but each choice is excellent. The Whiskey Cake for dessert is a must. Reservations are recommended so call early.

While traveling from Arkansas, I visited this restaurant with my son and daughter-in-law. They eat here often and wanted me to experience the food, especially the desserts. We had the salmon and it was delicious! The whiskey cake was excellent as well. The view is beautiful and we watched the sun set from our table. This was a treat for me and a place I will definitely return to on my next visit.

My husband and I were celebrating our 37th anniversary and a guest at our B&B recommended 1011. We had the filet and the seafood pasta and both were exceptional. Excellent service. I would recommend this to anyone.

This was a birthday dinner. Filet was tender I had hoped and was looking forward to having some. We both had salads and were not wowed by them. I had the pear and goat cheese. He had the grilled caesar salad. Both of us found the greens very tough. He could barely cut his into manageable bite-size pieces, it was so tough. I though there could have been more goat cheese on my salad and the greens on it were tough to cut also. The service was fine. There was a table of 4 behind us that seemed a little loud; we could hear their whole conversation. We enjoy eating here, but usually only come for special occasions. I would recommend they rotate in some other items on the menu, maybe for special occasions like Valentines, or 1 night a month or something. I'd love to see Chateaubriand or Steak Diane, hand -carved grilled pork chop or crab legs or lobster once in awhile. I would also love to see a request in advance dessert like Amaretto souffle or something like that. Just a suggestion to keep it fresh!

One cannot beat the view anywhere. We were seated near the river-view windows and had a commanding vantage of a very peaceful scene spanning pre-sunset to dark. Our waiter was attentive but not overboard. The food was good and the portions reasonable- the lamp was perfectly done, the seafood pasta was also great flavor. Since it was a special birthday, which I had disclosed in the Open Table reservation, our waiter spontaneously served a house specialty. You can't go wrong at 1011 Bistro, particularly for special occasions.

We have eaten here twice since we discovered it. The food is great always cooked to your liking. the menu is limited but I think that helps with having everything prepared perfectly.
Service is prompt, gracious, and pleasant.
We really enjoy this place and will make it a top choice for special occasions.

We followed our waiter Tyler’s great suggestions. The butternut squash soup and fried calamari both very good starters . The Texas salad was excellent . The pork tenderloin and filet mignon both superb . It was too cold to enjoy their outside seating that evening . Great view of the Guadalupe River .
