Loved it! Perfect before an evening at the Plaza.
We always try for reservations at Anson 11 Bistro for pre-Theater dinner as well as other times. It is perfect for meeting friends from the westside and eastside of El Paso. The drinks are good, the food is even better and the service...THE BEST! It is one of our favorite places.
BISTRO. Food and service were excellent.
Wife and I recently married enjoyed fantastic dinner with wife, stepson and stepdaughter. The food, service and entire experience was exceptional and this was a Monday evening. Have been in the past and will continue going in the future.
First class fine dining in a wonderful setting off the plaza. Anson11 is a great addition to downtown El Paso.
Sat in same seat when we came last time. Would have liked to sit next to window. The table we sat at was less private since there are other tables in the same row. Being in an intimate environment should have afforded more private tables for couples. Still the experience was great and well worth it. Maybe next time.
Staff was great, food was delicious. Overall it was a great dining experience, will definitely return
I was upset the original reservation I made for the fine dining section was canceled because the site and restaurant reservations system did not match up. In another words the restaurant was over booked so my reservation was canceled. So we settled for the Bistro section. Unfortunately we waited 15 mins before we even got service. The manager made up the for the inconvenience of the wait time with free appetizer and dessert. However, I’m disappointed my reservation for the fine dining section was canceled, it was supposed to be a surprise for my wife.
I would not recommend this restaurant although I have been to it several times. Each time the food has decreased in quality and creativity. The Ciopinno was, shall I be kind or honest, honest I think. The Ciopinno had parts of crabs that were not eatable and the other parts (claws and legs) with no way to get access to the meat. I left 2/3's of the plate uneaten because it was so bad. The Salmon with sauteed spinach with mash potatoes is uninspired....I make much better with more interesting flavors. Although the food was uninspired the fact the hostess called at 4 PM telling me that although I had made a reservation for 7:00 pm six days before the best they could do was to sit my party of 5 at a bar table because they were going to be busy. After my insistence they were able to accommodate my party. Upon arrival we were seated but in the 2 hours I was at the restaurant it was barely 1/2 full plus I noticed a table seating 7 or 8 never used. The overall experience was not pleasing at best and probably closed to terrible especially for the cost. I cannot recommend Anson 11.
Don't pass it up. Yes! Good! 50 characters will not do it justice. Make the reservation.!!!!!!!!!
I’ve eaten both in bistro and fine dining. They are both fantastic, great food, great energy!
We arrived twenty minutes early for our 7:15 reservation, and were ushered to the lovely lounge area for cocktails. The room is comfortable, and we were well attended to. Unfortunately, we were not seated until 7:55, and the waiter did not take our order until 8:20. We had hoped to be getting ready for dessert by this hour. My husband's appetizer arrived cold, and his $45 steak was very grizzly and room temperature, not hot. We spoke with our waiter who alerted the manager who did compensate with an offer of dessert. The management did acknowledge our dissatisfaction, and did offer a reasonable gesture. The boar osso bucco was quite delicious, as were the cocktails. This is a lovely and pricey restaurant, good for special occasions, but don't be in a hurry if you go.
Great food and really great service, excellent place to go and enjoy company, very welcoming and an all around wonderful evening
It is always a great dinner, I always have an excellent time as a consequence of very good service, great dishes and good wine
Anson 11 never fails to hit the mark. We were seated right away, the service was great, and the food came out promptly. We were right on time for our play. Go to Anson, you will not be disappointed!
The ciopinno was tasty, but parts of King crab, especially body parts and tiny claws, were extremely difficult to pry any meat out of. I had to use my hands as there was not an implement to help. So in the end, the amount of seafood in the dish was minuscule. The sauce for the very large pork chop very limited and not delicious. The restaurant was packed and energetic (noisy). Unfortunately, not a very good dinner for my son's birthday.
Hate the new Burrata Salad - no more figs, little arugala, lettuce and tomatoes were not fresh. The potato leef soup was sorta OK. Waiter was good.
The restaurant was really busy due to the pre-theater crowd. The server was great and very attentive under the circumstances. NO complaints.
First time been here. I didn't like the table I was given. It took 10 mins for a waiter to asked if someone had help us already. Food was overall. Place is very nice. Not a place for a dinner date or special occasion.
Some of my favorite menu items disappeared. (Roast chicken was the best!) Hope it comes back. The service was and is always great.
Very good food and service!
Made a reservation and arrived 15 minutes early. Took 1 1/2 hours to receive food, half hour to eat, both side orders of bread and meat were forgotten. Won't return or recommend.
Quality of food was not worth the price. Both the lamb chops and the steak were over cooked, which shouldn’t happen at a place like Anson 11. Sides and apps were good. Don’t think I’ll go back to the fine dining room, maybe try the bistro downstairs.
This is a great place in downtown EP. It’s worth the drive or if you’re there for the theater or a game, it’s the place to get a great drink and a great meal!
First time at A11
Not impressed at all
Have dined at different places around the world and I’m sorry to say that A11 lacks in many areas.
Service was good, not great,
Menu was limited, I ordered a steak and was served ONLY a piece of meat next to a small onion. My son ordered lamb and was served one small lamb rib. Every member of our group of four was disappointed.
Not that I’m a big eater, just that I didn’t expect the plates to so plain and cheaply served.
We generally enjoyed our trip, but the food didn't quite live up to the reputation or the price. It also took almost an hour to arrive. The staff was wonderful though, and whoever made our drinks should get a raise.
I was disappointed. It was a special evening with daughters and granddaughter. We were seated in the middle of the traffic flow, the tables were very close together to the point that the wait staff had to make a long trip around to deliver food. The food was fair. My food was barely warm and my daughters arrived cold. The table next to us sent back two plates. The wait staff was trying, but having a difficult time. This is a fantastic location, but the restaurant needs to step it up.
Made reservations for fine dining, seating on Dec 23rd @ 4:45pm... attending the theatre at 7:00pm. Reservations made two weeks prior, following directions to input “fine dining” in the notes section. A day prior, received another email confirming, clearly showed time/location of reservation. Arrived at 4:45, Upon entering, waited 5 minutes to be greeted by the host even though we were standing directly in front of his podium. He tried to seat us downstairs. I told him our reservation was for fine dining. He stated, “it can’t be, they don’t open till 5:00”. I showed him my confirmation, clearly stating a confirmed 4:45 fine dining. He stated “well they don’t open till 5:00. Do you want to stand here till they open?” No thank you. He called another employee over, who offered to let us wait the 10 minutes upstairs in the lounge. We were seated in a waiting area, didn’t hear from anyone for 15 minutes. No water/drinks offered.Not sure if it’s Open Table’s mess up or Anson 11’s but if reservations can’t be made for fine dining till after 5:00, we should have been told when we made the reservation, not when we arrived.Finally we were seated, I immediately informed our waiter that the show started at 7. His reply was “like every other reservation here tonight”. He asked if we wanted any drinks, my husband ordered a beer and before I could order, he walked off. He finally returned and asked if I wanted a drink. My daughter was never asked if she wanted anything.We were seated for 15 minutes before we received water, 35 minutes before our drinks arrived. When our waiter came to take our order he stated “since you do t have much time, don’t order the chefs tasting menu”. His attitude was a bit, snarky. Like we were a bother because we were pressed for time. The meal felt rushed, not relaxing meal I had planned for my family. Maybe it was the botched reservation, maybe the lackluster service, maybe the rushed dinner, was not happy with our overall dinner experience.
Good food! Not that great service.
Always a great meal. The table full of ladies in a state of pandamonious celebration was amusing.
Even though I have reviewed it at a higher level on prior occasions this time it was not the dining experience I am accustomed to here. Service was slow, food came out late and cold. Seemed they were overwhelmed with a average crowd. They need to bring back the lunch menu into the dinner.
I love Anson 11 however this evening it was crowded because of folks downtown to see the Christmas lights and visit Winter Fest. The wait staff was harried and with no visible bussers our water didn’t get refilled and plates weren’t removed. The waitress was delightful, but over burdened with everything going on. We still enjoyed ourselves and the food was delicious!
My daughter and I went before the Christmas Drag Show at the Plaza Theater. It was very nice! Enjoyed live Christmas music and beautiful Christmas decor inside and out in the downtown Plaza area. The food was good. We shared the Chicken and Mushroom pasta and Mushroom Pizza and Cheese cake dessert. We really enjoyed the pizza and pasta most , however the cheese cake was not the best..Sorry. I've had the chocolate cake before and it is very good...just didn't want to wait another 20mins to get it due to the Show. I'd recommend ordering the chocolate cake half way through your meal to time it right...not sure about you but too much extra waiting can change a really great experience to a not so great one for me. I would definitely recommend giving it a try i love the atmosphere and look forward to trying some of the other dishes
Everything was fine. Our only complain is that our table was really close to an exit door and everything the door was open there was a real cool air in our way due to the outside weather
Food was excellent. Service was below average of a fast food restaurant.
This restaurant came highly recommended from a friend, so we tried it out. I think the menu was outstanding and very diverse - many good options to choose from. I ended up getting one of the signature plate, Meatloaf. I thought the meatloaf was tasty, however, I struggled with the sauce. For me, it was too bbq'y - not something I'd expect with meatloaf. It wasn't bad, but caught me off guard.
Service was a wee bit slow. They need to prepare better when there is a big concert next door at the Plaza Theater.
Service downstairs is terrible and inconstant. Have talked to management multiple times in the past and nothing has been corrected.
Below average. They treated my girlfriend rudely at the front while I parked the car. I notified them ahead of time that it was my girlfriend’s birthday. Knowing this ahead of time, and with a fairly empty restaurant, they decided to seat us in a terrible location. Service was not good. Yes, I understand that my girlfriend and I look young. Just so happens that we are both successful attorneys. The waiter got one look at our young faces and rarely came back. It took 30 minutes just for him to take our order. Half way through our dinner, the original waiter had another waiter sub in (without ever letting us know and after he hadn’t come check on us in over 30 minutes) so that he could instead attend to what he perceived to be higher class people at other tables. Our original waiter never came back. I usually order a bottle of wine at the beginning of dinner and order another half way through. The wait staff came so rarely that we never finished the first bottle. Our second waiter didn’t even know we had a bottle, and I had to let him know that we had been waiting for a refill for over an hour. After ordering our food 30 minutes in, it took another hour to actually be served. After 45 minutes of waiting, a (third) waiter reluctantly came to our table and let us know our food had been over cooked. Again, the restaurant was half empty during this whole time. After we finally get our food, I noticed the wait staff attending to a larger party to wish a patron happy birthday. They sang happy birthday to her and brought her a piece of cake. I assumed, being that I notified them ahead of time of my girlfriends birthday, that they would afford her the same courtesies. They did not, and continued to mostly ignore us for the rest of the night. On a side note, the food was above average.
