Located in the historic Mills Building in the heart of Downtown El Paso and next to the famous Plaza Theatre, Anson11 offers delicious American Bistro dishes paired with exquisite wine and great customer service. Our first floor Bistro has a more casual bar scene and offers a variety of entrees, salads, sandwiches and flatbreads. Enjoy fine dining on our second floor which offers a more intimate and upscale experience where each dish is both familiar yet completely new in the way its flavor arouses the palate. From Prime steaks to fresh seafood flown in fresh daily, Anson11 is not just a restaurant but an entire experience.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to go. Our reservation was canceled by the restaurant due to a suspicious package and the building being evacuated.
Super food and service. The menu is diverse with enough choices to please, without going overboard and the presentation is exceptional as was the taste of all of our selections. El Paso's best!
Service lapses brought down evening
I expect a little better service in the upstairs dining room. Waiter left the table after taking two individuals' orders (we were a party of three). We also shared three appetizers, and later three side plates, but no serving utensils were provided either time. White napkins were not trade out for black when two of us were wearing black pants. This restaurant has been open long enough and shouldn't be having these types of issues with service.
Very good overall. Would like to see a special added touch, such as a small token chocolate at the end of the meal. Or, set bread and butter to wait for the meal without having to ask if it is available.
Food Getting Smaller
This review is for their restaurant at the first floor. Their dishes are getting smaller every time I go there. The food was not impressive, and I would have had the same satisfaction dining anywhere else. At the end we paid around $120 for four people, and still were hungry afterwards.
One of the best food and service places in ElPaso.
Nice place to eat, portions were too small for the price. But tasted great!
Great place for dinner before a show...
Made reservations (a must) to dine before a show at the Plaza. Since it is in the same building, it is very convenient. Our hostess seated us on the patio. Since the new Plaza was just opened, it was a nice view, but the tables outside are not the best. The music was a little loud for us. And be aware that the patio is pet-friendly. Service was very good. After ordering a glass of wine and dinner our meal was served promptly and hot. The food was fantastic. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner and were never rushed. It is a great downtown spot. We plan on returning to sample the FINE DINING experience.

My favorite El Paso Restaurant
I just love this place. Everything I've ever eaten here has been fantastic. The drinks are OK and the wine selection is decent.
Great dinner customer loved location and feel of restaurant. Wine list was interesting discussion. Food came out timely and prepared to order.
A cool place to go
We went to Bistro 1st level. It is a cute set up. The background noise was not loud and food was good. I had the linguine with clams. It was creamy even though the sauce didn't look creamy. It had a very good flavor. The only thing Iwished was that they had given me enough to take home for leftovers.
Flatbread pizzas, porkchop and quest fun ...
Flatbread pizzas, porkchop and quest fundido are great! Great wine list too
Appetizer was excellent and from the main dish, my boss said his lamb dish was very good! but, the sauce over Branzino that I had was little salty and didn't seem matching with the fish to my taste.
Less than stellar service
The place overall was very nice. The atmosphere was great for a date and the food was good too. I felt for the level of the restaurant and the price of the food and drink, the service was aweful. I think there was one waiter that took care of the fine dining upstairs and English was not his first language. I just figured at that level the service would be attentive.
Good food at a good price
The appetizers and main courses looked appealing and were tasty. Our waitress was knowledgeable and brought the food and drinks promptly. The prices were in line with those at an attractive downtown eatery. We had a good time. When the fence finally comes down from the park across the street, there will be a scenic view from the restaurant windows overlooking the park.
My favorite El Paso restaurant
Consistently excellent food and service with polite and efficient wait staff.
frito pie as appetizer was too salty
We loved the environment, it is an excellent place, and of course we will recommend it.
The wait-staff was friendly and efficient. Knowing that we were attending the opera, the excellent meal was served in good time and the staff was attentive to our needs. We also appreciated the fact that the payment transaction was handled quickly and efficiently.
Great Food Great Service
Short rib was delish! Nice wine list and open late after a long day of meetings. Service at bar was impeccable and friendly but not suffocating. Great find.
Ambiance nice, food okay...
It's a very nice place, but the ribeye with coffee chiplote rub did not measure to its $30 price. At this price, I really expected a much higher quality steak. However, the service was outstanding.
Took my wife to Anson11 for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. We dined upstairs, which was a bit more fancy than we expected, where there was live music to go along with the excellent service. The food was great, definitely recommend the lamb and New York strip along with some good dinner wine. It is a little pricey but well worth it, we had a good time.

Amazing dinner, loved the beet salad, sturgeon and filet mignon.
Ate in the Bistro... perhaps that's where I went wrong. Drinks were well made, I ordered the Filet - wasn't the best cut - nor was it cooked as I would have expected. Not a bad place overall - try it out for yourself.
Not worth the price
Ambiance is great, customer service is great, food selection is poor, taste is average definitely not worth the price.

Dined upstairs, excellent service, attentive staff, quality food. Great ambiance.
The staff was so accommodating. I had party favors that I brought with me and they helped put them out at each place setting, and I preferred a larger table and they moved the party over with no problem.

Overall great evening, we arrived early to our reservations and were seated immediately . Service was awesome. Food was outstanding and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Will return soon.

Attended the fine dining part of the restaurant and must say that the ambiance is very sophisticated and very relaxing. Really enjoyed the live music. The waiter was very attending. Recommend this place for a special occasion.
Made reservations through Open Table. Was called by restaurant to see if we wanted to eat in the bistro or the fine dining upstairs. We requested fine dining, but upon arrival, was told only bistro was open. They didn't 3 of the wine choices we asked for from wine list. Manager gave a recommendation which was excellent. Food was good, but was disappointed in crab cakes. No lump crabmeat. Overall, fun experience. Will be back!!
We went for dinner for the third time and the food, ambience, and friendly waitstaff were just as it has been before....wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the braised short ribs as did the others in my party. The asparagus with hollandaise was very good, tender and tasty. We had the queso fundido and it was outstanding. There was plenty for three of us. We had the French pressed coffee and wanted the molten lava cake, but it would have been nice to know it took 20 minutes when the waitress handed us the dessert menu so we could have ordered it right away, versus being told about it after we had already gotten our coffee. I guess we'll know next time because we will definitely go back.
Food is amazing, staff is adequate.
The food was perfectly prepared and the resturant was clean and beautiful. The only shortfall was the staff. On my dinner visit, the upstairs area had very few people eating and the staff still appeared to be unorganized. Menus were brought to our table a second time after we ordered. I ordered the chef's tasting menu, and courses came at very different intervals. Some taking much longer than others. A couple sitting next to us also had their dessert order mixed up. The staff downstairs was also very snobby and rude.
We really enjoyed our experience at Anson 11 Downstairs. It was for birthday celebrations. Much enjoyed the more casual atmosphere. The only negative was that they were out of the salmon burger which is what two in the party wanted. Other than that, it was a lovely evening.
Absolutely top notch experience. The food was supremely fine tasting. The ambiance was clean quiet. The service was above anything I ever experienced. The staff was very knowledgeable and attentive. Will certainly be back one day. I apologize I for got my servers name. Nice guy.

I think this restaurant is overrated. It is a very nice restaurant as far as the decor, but the food and service has to improve. I am referring to the Bistro area.
