    Food and service were both good, but there was a mixup on an entree and the bill had to be corrected.

    The whole experience at Eleven was fantastic. Our server, Rachel, previewed the menu for us and provided excellent recommendations on their cheese, appetizers, entrées, desserts, and wine offerings. We are already planning our next visit!

    We had an excellent meal and wonderful service as always. Eleven stands the test of time. We have never had a bad meal here and we have been regular patrons since 2004 when they opened. We split two appetizers. The mushrooms and the tuna tartar were both amazing. Then we split the swordfish. I wasn’t sure which I enjoyed more, the swordfish or the rock shrimp forbidden rice served with it! It’s Also such a joy that they are one of the few restaurants that still serve bread with a meal and don’t charge you! The bread is homemade on premises and absolutely delicious. Absolutely a wonderful evening!

    Arrived early so we sat in the bar area. After attentive service and delicious drinks we headed upstairs for dinner. Food was delicious (except the crab cake) I paid $43 for one scallop, one small piece of bass and one, preformed, subpar crab cake. That was the only disappointment of the evening. Everything else was great and the drinks and ambiance were fantastic. Would definitely return.

    Lovely time. Good quality control. Friendly people. Valet, even with a generous tip is cheaper than the parking lot across the street - $12. Overall, a lovely place to celebrate in small numbers and not too often. Quite pricey. Cozy, romantic. Good wine. Good homemade bread. Friendly, efficient waiter.

Our guests raved about the whole experience! Thank you Eleven for being a consistent star for Pittsburgh dining! There isn’t any other restaurant I would recommend I’m the city for our night night together!

    One of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh. Usually very consistent in all ways, but not at the top of their game this time: Server was a bit irritable and not engaging. My swordfish was over-cooked, had a soggy-texture and lacked a little flavor. My dining companions also thought things were a little off. Of course, we’re not giving up on Eleven.

    This has been a favorite restaurant for me and my son ever since he was about 10 years old and could begin to appreciate fine food and great service. We go to Eleven for most of our special occasions and after enjoying his 25th birthday dinner there last night, this amazing place keeps getting even better and better. Now I wish there were more vegetarian entrees but I'm sure they would have made us something custom if we had asked. We enjoyed every bite regardless and can't wait to return.

    It has been a while since we were last at Eleven, so it is great to see post-COVID that everything is back to its previous great standards. Service was excellent. Our waitress was very well versed in all of the dishes. Because of a food allergy she had the chef exclude tofu from one of our appetizers. Scallops were perfectly cooked. Braised beef creatively served in a medley of nuts and sauces. For dessert we had the "apple" special which was replete with apple flavor and appearance but at the same time constructed of white chocolate. Cocktails and wine were excellent. Great to have such a reliable high end restaurant in da Burgh.

The service was outstanding and they made sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back for happy hour and dinner in the near future.

We chose this restaurant as a birthday dinner for our sons 21st birthday. I could never say what my favorite meal or restaurant in my lifetime but this place is in the running.

    Another great anniversary dinner at Eleven on 11/11. Thank you for getting our favorite table. We love the restaurant. Great service. Salad was perfect and vegan diner was great (little salty though ? ) Let the vegetables speak for themselves. We did not get the drink we ordered but it was ok. Value no longer seems to be there at 2 smaller food items and 4 expensive non mixology cocktails for around $125. Plus tip. Your valet needs attention. It was raining, but you are using the traffic lanes which was dangerous.

    Our first time at Eleven (and in Pittsburg) and what an amazing dining experience. All courses that the two of us ordered were incredible. We started with cheeses, breads and the tuna tartare. The bread, made in-house, had the perfect external crisp. The walnut/cranberry (with sea salt?) slices were addictive. The Ricotta Cavatelli was phenomenal, both in presentation and taste. The best dish of the evening. The pork chop was cooked a perfect medium and presented sliced and not bone-in chop form. The spaetzle and spouts accompanied the pork wonderfully. Perhaps the only ‘down’ was the dessert selection. The Candy Bar is too large, too dense and otherwise underwhelming. Would still go back a 100xs.

    We went for my fiancé’s bday with two other guests. The best meal seemed to be the hamburger. Surprising for such a nice Restaurant. Our salmon wasn’t anything special and another guest got the squash cavatelli and she hardly touched it, it was soupy almost. Deserts were good, appetizers were ok. We ordered the meatball but it was like a white sauce on it. The tuna appetizer looked like ham salad, very unappetizing looking and not very tasty. The oysters were good but not very flavorful. Waiter was amazing. Drinks were ok. For the 4 of us (two who got a burger and noodle dish) it was $400.

    This had been our "go to" restaurant for years. It's also now in dire need of a reinvention or makeover. It's a tired spot. Ambiance like dining in a cave - super dark. Food was wildly disappointing - second experience in a row (Ravioli's swimming in cream and cheese, overdone Halibut, underdone Scallop). Zero nuance. Best part of dinner was the bread. Valet now $6 plus tip. Crazy for a distant trip to the city for a special meal. This place has lost it's spark. Will not return unless there is news of a new chef and menu. TIRED SPOT.

    Visited for Sunday brunch. Food and drinks were excellent. However, service left something to be desired. It was slow and drinks (which we had to remind/ask about) came after the appetizers. I would visit again, though, for the food and environment.

    Entire visit was ruined by very poor communication and executive decision making by server. Brunch is setup for prix fixe. Which includes a cocktail, app, and entree. However; our waitress asked for our drink order prior to giving us the brunch menu showing the qualifying cocktails (which were the exact same price as what we ordered). When she took our order, we explained we weren't aware that only certain cocktails were eligible and could we still do the prix fixe, even with a small additional fee. She said, "no, you have to order 2 more drinks" with the prix fixe. I explained we weren't interested in additional drinks as it was 12:30 pm. She shrugged and walked away. I paid $5 more for my entree and a drink, with no app, than I would have for the prix fixe. It's an $80 brunch, so $5 isn't a big deal, but the lack of communication (when we ordered) and lack of customer service (caring and making things 'right') was terrible. Ruined our experience and will not recommend or return.
