11 central is one of my favorites local restaurant choices. From the warm, welcoming greeting to the tasty cocktails to the mouthwash meals. Quality all around. Professwait staff and very friendly. Fine dining with a flair!

Dinner has been delicious each time - nice presentation. Food service can sometimes be a bit slower than desired but you're not there to be in a hurry anyway - you're there to linger and have a night out. Comfortable atmosphere - exposed brick contrasts nicely with colorful artwork and dimmed lighting.

Creative cocktails, delicious appetizers, and friendly service. Atypical Metropolitan yet cozy atmosphere in Bangor.

While I've been doing business near Bangor, on my client's suggestion we went to 11 Central for dinner because I hadn't visited the city yet. The dinner was excellent, with the maple thick cut pork chop prepared perfectly and was accompanied by a nice potato side dish. The Caesar salad was a nice start and the wine a good value.

Being new to Bangor, we relied on TripAdvisor and found 11 Central, which was one of the few non-chain, highly rated establishments open on Monday night. We're really glad we made it there. The gnocchi with chorizo was great as was the elk corn chowder. The service was prompt and friendly!

Met my daughter and her boyfriend last night for dinner along with my husband. The meal couldn't have gone better. The three of them ordered the Elk stew for an appetizer and it arrived hot and full. WOW. It smelled fantastic and they LOVED it! I do not eat elk, so can't attest directly. Everyone who ate it RAVED about... More

The food is excellent, the service is outstanding and the cocktails are the best. Great ambiance especially if you can get a table in the front window and people watch. By far our favorite and best restaurant in downtown Bangor.

One of my favorites! A classy atmosphere without feeling stuffy, excellent food and cocktails, good service. Menu changes slightly seasonally or a couple times a year, and there's always a great selection. Can't wait to return!
