Anson11 Ratings and Reviews
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!
I made a reservations to this restaurant and we arrived we got sat in a place that was not ready for us. In addition we where sitting next to the computer where every 5-10 minutes we had staff standing next to our table. I was very disappointed with our seating arrangements. As I was expecting to have somewhat of a more private table given that we did make dinner reservations. I could've totally of understood if I was a walk up sitting where I we where seated. Other than that the food was good service was decent.
We were celebrating our anniversary with a nice dinner in the Bistro area.
The music level is a bit high for my liking, but still enjoyable to have a conversation and not be shouting.
The service was great, the food (Scottish Salmon and Oven Roasted Chicken) were delicious.
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3 years last Saturday. It was our first time for the fine dinning experience. We had the 7 course meal, along with two cocktails each. Each bit was a insane. It was culinary art at its best! We enjoyed every bite! The cocktails were in point! I had the jalapeño cilantro margarita, actually had two because I thought it was delicious. I don't remember our servers name but he did a wonderful job! 5 stars! Outstanding!
The wine list was lacking, I understand you want product to rotate but unacceptable for fine dining. It's one of the newest fine dining in El Paso, but some more seasoned FD establishments already do it right, and dare I say better? Can't recommend A11, maybe it just wasn't for me, but for my FD needs I'll be dining elsewhere. Give it a try, maybe I missed something.
Though I will say this, the ground floor bistro area offers (not their sandwiches of course) food with as much flavor as their 1st floor counterparts at a reasonable price. Stay their instead.
Hope to be able to write a review regarding the food and service, but not this time. After making a reservation 4 days in advance through Open Table (received confirmation and reminder), the restaurant called an hour prior to our reservation and said they couldn't accommodate the reservation made at 4pm (an hour before the phone call). When I explained I had made the reservation days ago they immediately rescinded and said they would accommodate us. I should have known better as there was a Broadway show at the theater...which we were going to like most other diners that night. We arrived to find many others in the same situation - reservation made through Open Table, but restaurant had no reservation. The hostess kept telling us it would be soon, but 50 minutes later we were still waiting. We finally made the decision to leave as we needed to eat (husband is diabetic) and get to the theater before show started. We were HUGELY disappointed as we have heard many wonderful things about Anson11 and we were also celebrating our wedding anniversary. Yes, we understood but crummy to have such expectations for a nice evening to be spoiled. Best thing would have been for the hostess (or maybe even better the manager...who spoke to NO ONE) tell us "sorry" and invite/encourage us to come back at another time. Lesson learned eat somewhere else (many restaurants on Mesa Street or at home) on theater nights.
Unfortunately won't be back!. Our reservations were at 6 and we were never seated with a play to attend at 7:30 at the Plaza Theater. There was a line with others waiting and the poor hostess was doing her best to accommodate. We had not eaten prior, had already paid for parking in the garage and stayed because we thought it would be "any minute". Ended up seating ourselves at the bar about 6:50 p.m. and the bartender was nice enough to put a rush on our appetizers which was all we could order based on short time available. Appetizers were okay, food allergy to most of the shell fish items so options were limited. It could have been nice but was not so much!
