“Average. . .”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Venue is quaint and the staff were friendly and helpful. No complaints there. The menu was good if a little expensive. However the dishes we ordered, steak & duck, were not terribly tasty, just rather average. For a French restaurant and for the price I think we expected more. So i'm afraid I can only rank Average. . .sorry. . .

Dear Metropolitan Man,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and for the compliments on the room and the staff working that night. Its a shame you found the food to be average because its certainly not what we aim for!
Best wishes

“Excellent authentic French restaurant”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Another trip to Eleven a couple of weeks ago, and another excellent meal. We both enjoyed our starters (soup and terrine), superb mains full of flavour (steak & chips and fish stew) and desserts (lemon tart - lovely and sweet with the sharp fruit cutting through it) and the decent house wine that is not extortionately expensive. A lovely atmosphere which just encourages you to relax and enjoy yourself.

“What a great night!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Took some friends to Eleven last night and wow did they love it!! Great food, cooked and served with care. The host Jean-Christophe can not be faulted; the perfect host. The atmosphere was buzzing when we arrived at 8pm and continued till we left at 11pm. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who loves good food and engaging, enthusiastic people.

“Fine French Bistro”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Our first visit to Eleven on a Friday night. Though the room was not busy there was plenty of atmosphere. Excellent service throughout. Lovely home-baked bread accompanied various starters all top notch. Fish and soufflees were particularly excellent. House wine very drinkable at a good price.

A small gripe - please wash the spinach before cooking - grit is not required!
