The Bistro food is very tasty, but the menu is limited; I'd like to see a few deli-style sandwich selections.
When one must shout at the person across the table, the music is too loud.
The food-preparation time is much improved, and the wait-staff were very attentive and efficient.

Excellent food and the service was great! We had the crabcakes appetizer and they were the best I've ever tasted. Perfect texture and flavor. The blackened ribeye steak I ordered was cooked to perfection and seemed to have decent marbling. The flavor was fantastic and their proprietary steak sauce is great, although not necessary with such a great cut of meat. The truffle/ Parmesan fries are a fun side order and very well-seasoned. Not too salty either.
The only problem was the atmosphere in the Bistro was way too loud for us. We were trying to celebrate and enjoy a private meal, and they had music that was really too loud for such a small room, and to top it off, the world series was playing on the big screen. So you had to listen to the baseball game on top of the music, and everyone in the place had to speak loudly to hear themselves talk, so the volume level was way too high for us. For this type of an establishment, I was not expecting the "sports bar" atmosphere. Next time we'll try the private dining on the second floor, and things should be much tamer. Nice to have such a classy place in El Paso though, we'll be back!

The music was too loud (second floor). Unable to carry on a conversation with wife. Requested that it be turned down, at least a little. Not done. Ruined the dining experience.
Background music is what the music should be. Not a loud concert.

Great Atmosphere, amazing service, and I mean Amazing! I'm extremely picky, and these guys almost pulled a perfect score. Food was great! The place is great. That ribeye was perfect! They serve Stella on Draft, that was great for me! Anyways it won't disappoint!

We were greeted at the door and taken upstairs. We were met by our waiter, Cristobal, and were seated immediately. The food and wine were excellent. The only thing is that I wish we would have been left alone with the menu for a few moments. He hovered a bit and didn't give us a chance read through the drinks or food menu. Other than that, everything was excellent.

it was a nice evening except for a few inconveniences. Our reservation was for 8 pm and when we arrived there was no table for us. We were not seated until 30 minutes later and was seated at one of those tall tables which are not the most comfortable. We were also disappointed that they had run out of their salmon burgers.

The brunch menu offered an item that included a poached egg. My eggs were undercooked. They were translucent. I don't like to send food back but I had to. Instead of attempting to re-poach the egg they fried it. It was chewy. The egg was covered by a sauce so maybe the kitchen thought they could pull one over on me and I wouldn't notice they fried it. If the kitchen can't poach an egg they shouldn't put it on the menu but they apparently can't fry an egg either.
I have eaten here several other times with no problems but they seem to have a problem with the brunch menu. This wasn't the first time I've had a problem with brunch. Their dinner menu is great and their food is fresh. I don't recommend brunch. It was a nightmare. It took 2 hours to leave that place with all their mistakes. My husband was done with his food by the time mine was brought out again. We were celebrating his birthday. I had to ask for a manager to get our ticket adjusted. I would have thought it would have been done automatically as a courtesy for all the kitchen's problems.

I had a reservation for a Date at 8:15 Saturday night. The reservation was great, the hospitality was what I expected and the service was very good and made up for the hair I found in my fries. Ordered a chicken sandwich and fries( with no hair) it was served with a hair. Only took 2 bites out of my meal. Giving you another shot soon.

We made bistro reservation online and had no issue when we arrived they had everything ready. We did not have to have all party present before sitting, that is always helpful when you have a big group. Our waiter was very attentive and quick to bring are drinks and food. I am sorry I do not remember his name. Food overall was good the only thing I disliked was the seafood pasta. Good price for good food and service.

My plate was horrible and could not get the taste of salt out of my mouth. On the opposite side, my wife ordered the salmon and it did not have much to any flavor. The chef should review their menu options and ingredient combinations for major tweaks.

Service and food was impeccable. The price is a bit high for everyday dining, but it is great for special occasions (and you get what you pay for). Unfortunately there was a mix-up with our reservation, but the staff was able to work through that.

Anson 11's Bistro used to be my favorite place in El Paso... My last visit, however, makes me think I may not go back. The menu changes are absolutely terrible!!! One of my very favorite sides at Anson was the kale that was served with the steaks; now they've switched to asparagus, which isn't bad, but please, please bring back the kale!!! It's so delicious! The most disappointing change was the switch from the small, loaded baked potato to the hash brown patty with a smudge of ketchup on the plate. Ketchup next to my filet mignon??? Who in the world thought that was a great idea? Listen Anson 11, you've got to reconsider these changes if you still want to be considered one of El Paso's premiere locations. Most importantly, that awful hash brown thing has got to go!!! Lastly, the service was incredibly slow, which only added to our frustrations over the menu changes... Needless to say, we did not have a good experience. Now to find another place to go for date night!

Was an great dining experience! Easily the best place to dine in El Paso when looking for a fantastic atmosphere and good food. Staff was attentive and friendly. Looking forward to our next opportunity to dine there again.

Had a great evening. The food was good. We were celebrating our anniversary. So we opted to do the Chef's Tasting. It was great except for one dish that didn't taste good to me. The waiter was amazing. He apologize, took the plate away and soon retuned with another dish! We had 5 courses. We enjoyed our dinner!! The service was exceptional!!!

All four of us had soup for appetizer, the kids (early 20's) the tomsto basel, the adults (50's) the roasted asparagus: all bowls emptied (yum!) the kids had a burger (1) and the pasta special (1), the adults the scotish salmon with a pinot noir glaze to die for. The adults had Meiomi pinot noir while the girls finished with nutella crepes. The occasion was the live Fab4 show at the Plaza theater but the 80 mile round trip drive is worth it just for the dinner. We booked at 5:00PM and the place was packed by 6. All four of us agree: WOW! Excellent meal!

It was our first visit to Anson 11. Excellent service in the fine dinning area. Great wine list. Side dish servings were beyond plentiful for one person (next time we'll share sides). Noise level was loud due to another table with a large party. Our preference was the "nice quiet dinner" atmosphere, which did happen after the large party left. The soft music was a nice touch.

I have heard about A11 as a nice place, but this would be a very short and vague description of it ...
The place is SUPERNICE it came as a surprise it has a second elegant floor, food was exquisite, lighting was perfect, the music among the before create a very unique atmosphere ( nice selection by the way ) ... and the service was A++ ...
So far one of the the top 3 place i have been in my life ....
Thank you for making a last minute dinner in to an unforgettable and for life experience ...

My wife and I went for our wedding anniversary to the "fine dining" level for the first time after going to the bistro level on several occasions. Initially, we were going to be seated in a dark corner area, which we did not approve of. We were given another table after turning around to leave. The other 2-seaters are arranged too close together where you can hear each others conversations. Service was too slow, it took 15 minutes for a menu and 45 minutes later to be served. The spinach appetizer was cold and had to be re-heated and the fillet mignon was charred and my wife received another one. All in all, not a good experience for us to go back.

Great location! Our waitress was very helpful and did a great job with the suggestions. The crab cakes are exquisite! The salmon was delicious too. My boyfriend had the lamb which was very good but flavor was to strong for me (not a meet lover).

We all had different plates and the meatloaf was not freshly made. It still tasted frozen and processed unfortunately. The same thing happened with the Mussels last time we went to dine there. Plus, they had some items on the menu that they said they removed and didn't have better options.
