Anson11 Ratings and Reviews
Visited. El Pso for just one night. Read good review about Anson11 so made reservations. Did not know there was a Bistro and a Fine Dining choice. Do not know if I missed it when making reservations or you just have to know. We were seated promptly in the upstairs very beautiful fine dining room. Our waiter, Pepe, was very professional and attentive. Good wine list. We ordered a Crispy Brussels Sprout Salad with a peanuts and pomegranate seeds. Huge salad so good we were splitting. It was delicious. Also split a 16 oz. Ribeye. It was cooked perfectly and was a high quality pice of meat. Our only disappointment was the side dish, White Asperagus Oscar. They were very small thin asperagus with a good sauce; however, they were so tough, you could only get one good bite out of each one. We finished the evening and the bottle of wine downstairs at the Bistro's outside patio. Pepe secured a table for us and carried tour glasses down.
We would highly recommend this restaurant and our waiter.
We were visiting from out of town & were given this recommendation. We really enjoyed the meal.
A couple things to look out for:
We did not realize there are 2 restaurants in the same location - bistro casual & fine dining & that there was a dress code for the fine dining restaurant.
The staff is friendly and attentive. First, the host was pleasant and professional. Even though I reserved for 2, she was able to accommodate a third person last minute. She made sure the flowers I ordered were placed on the table for my niece. My niece was treated with lots of kindness and was wished happy birthday by each staff member who came by our table. Even the ones who weren't assigned to our table came by to wish her a happy birthday. You have amazing employees. The food (Meatloaf (2) and steak) had the appropriate spices and tenderness. The server (my apologies for not remembering his name) for our table attended to each of our needs. He was professional and patient. When we started looking at the dessert options, our server was quick to let us in that my niece was getting dessert as a gift from Anson 11 - we never had to ask for anything because all was provided. I know what our server looks like and know that I will ask for him again. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!! According to my niece, she will always remember this day!! And from me....I will always be forever grateful for your staff.!
My friend and I enjoyed our lunch, especially the asparagus soup Service was quick and friendly.
The only problem was that they did not have our reservation, which I obviously made through Open Table. There was plenty of room for us, so we were seated right away... but what would have happened if they had been very busy????
We had originally placed a reservation online through OpenTable but when we arrived we were told it didn't count because they were expecting a big crowd (this was the night of the Michael McDonald concert). They said they had blocked off all the tables a week prior to that evening. It would be nice if they coordinated that type of thing so it would not allow a reservation to be made. The downstairs, and more casual restaurant was booked up. This is the one the reservation was made. We were told we could go upstairs to the other restaurant. At that point, with time being a factor and not familiar with other downtown eating establishments, we went upstairs.
Nice settings, food was excellent. Tables are extremely close together which is not great for a romantic ambiance. We could hear everything the next couple was saying and they were not being loud. That made us reluctant to say much because we didn't want to impose our conversation on them. The décor and service was very good.
I had been to the downstairs restaurant the week before for the Chicago concert and even though we didn't have a reservation, we were seated outside. I made sure to make a reservation this time and was very disappointed from that aspect. I will also point out that since the upstairs is much more formal, it is also much more expensive.
El lugar esta muy elegante. Tiene un ambiente demasiado agradable y la mesera se portó super bien, muy atenta en todo momento.
El detalle fue en la comida ya que la persona con la que iba pidió pollo y éste estaba mal cocinado.
Todo lo demás, excelente.
This is in the top of my favorite restaurants in the world list. Great food and ambiance. We tried the downstairs bistro after eating a few times in the fine dining area. They were busy so the service got a little less attentive then when we first got there. The food is about as good as it gets and the variety they have is so pleasing. We had lobster bisque and mussels with french fries for appetizer. As I ate the mussels and took the shell away the fries began their descent into the heavenly lemon wine butter sauce so at the end you had another treat. Dish was clean when we finished! The bisque is presented tableside and the bowl has bites of shellfish with the soup poured over it. The cocktails are just right and we had a old fashioned and a raspberry lemon martini. For entree I chose the short rib and my husband the meatloaf. He didn't like his as much due to the smoky flavor and I gave him some bites of my generous portion of short rib. The desserts are perfect, we had small ramekin of cream brulee and a mini staub pot of apple pie and ice cream. We drive almost 5 hours about 1-2 times a year to specifically eat here and go to an event or concert, etc. A special treat!
We were promptly greeted and even though it was busy, staff had great eye contact and genuine smiles. Our server, Jose, was friendly and had a great laugh when we lightly joked about the wine chiller which we mistaken as him offering us “chiles”. Dishes we selected were healthy portions and very satisfying. Although noise level was moderate and conversation was limited because of it, it was understandable since families with young children were around us. Overall, the good welcome, great food, wonderful ambiance and a server that anticipated our needs was way over the top.
Please do not make reservations for this place with open table. After making mine a month in advance I was called the morning of from Anson 11 stating they did not have a table for me. There was a show in town the same night so I knew finding another place would be near impossible. The worker told me they pull the reservations the morning of and because I didn't state in the comment field what section I wanted to sit (bistro or fine dinning) it did not go through. Let me just state I would have most def. picked an option if the question was addressed to me. I had to make a scene before they told me they would place a small table off to the side for me and my date. The dinning experience itself was fantastic. The food was so good (as it always is)
We were actually very dissapointed in the fact that we had made the reservations, someone actually called me on the day of reservation to confirm the reservation and when we got to the restaurant they said that they didnt have said reservation at all, that maybe WE had made a mistake on the day or something because they had nothing for us and that maybe they could accomodate but no guarantees. They ended up sitting us down in a very very small table in the way of everyone, it was so uncomfortable needless to say our anniversary dinner was not at all what expected. By the end of our time there i get a call from some girl from the restaurant, said she was calling about a reservation that was made and i told her we were already there at the restaurant, and she just said : oh really? where? then maybe they sat you down incorrectly, sorry.. that was our not so good experience.
The salads were amazing, but dinner was a bit disappointing. The roast chicken lacked anything special and was rather overcooked, as was the rib eye. One would expect that food wouldn't be overcooked in an upscale restaurant. The ambiance was nice and the decor interesting. The cranberry gimlet was delicious and fresh.
My husband and I went here, and with the ambient lighting and a table for two next to the view of Downtown El Paso, it was very romantic! The bill was a bit pricey, but the food was very flavorful, very filling! And the service was EXCELLENT, definitely give this place a chance!
