I have introduced a number of friends to this quaint little place and have received wonderful praise - for the food, the ambiance, and the service.
I love the formal dining atmosphere with real tablecloths (not paper or plastic), nice tableware and perfect dining music.
In summer, the outdoor patio is very pleasant and amazingly quiet, considering its location.
The service is wonderful. If the occasion is special (birthday, anniversary, etc.) they go out of their way to make it even more so!
The dishes they create are unique, out of the ordinary, delicious delights. Definitely something to look forward to.
Did I mention that they have a nice selection of wines to compliment your meal?
This is one of my favorite dining places when I feel like treating myself to something special, and I intend to make many more visits!
And have you seen the amazing art on the walls? I do believe they are all local artists!!
It is always wonderful to settle down for a tasty
dinner with service that makes you feel special.
I have chosen Cafe 11 as one of the best places
to unwind and enjoy a variety of entrees from
talented chefs in the San Diego area. They have
never failed to live up to my expectations, and
usually surpass them. Their weeknight specials
are the best in town, and I congratulate them for
holding the price at $12.95 for as long as they
have. Thank goodness they still cater to those of
us who appreciate the efforts of the entire staff
to make our visit so pleasant.
Cheers to you, Cafe 11.
Judging the menu alone, I'd give it 3.5 stars.
The service was terrible. The four entrees we ordered were very overcooked. The chef made an attempt to disquise this with tons of overpowering sauces which only made the food worse.
For a party of 4, we spent approximatly $120 for each of us to have a cocktail and an entree, not appetizers or desserts.
This was the worst meal I have ever experienced.
My husband and I have been going to Cafe 11 for 16 years. Last night on Valentine's Day I had one of the worst meals I've ever had anywhere. It's not about the money ($50 per). I can't believe David allowed the onion soup out of the kitchen; pre-sliced wheatbread that got very soggy very quickly with a slab of pre-sliced swiss (I think) on top, soup itself fairly flavorful but all 3 were lukewarm at best. The caesar salad?. . . paleeeze. Shredded romaine with had-to-be bottled creamy caesar dressing (thick, white dressing ala Wishbone) poured over the top - not even tossed. The filet was decent and the desert was good, but we were so very disappointed in the appetizers. The pate was pitiful. As I said, it is not about the money, but I am shocked at the quality of the food turned out of the Cafe Eleven kitchen last night.
The pate' was nothing I have ever seen nor tasted. It was very FIRM and lacking in any real flavor.
My entre was the worst excuse for beef wellington I have ever experienced. A lightly browned puff pastry over an overcooked piece of meat that resmebled a chunk of round steak instead of tenderlion, and served on some mushrooms.
The sides we a nice exception and a good variaty. One of the servers was excellent, and the others were not.
Long time before I will ever visit this place again.
Have eaten at Cafe Eleven for many years, but have not been back there in probably 3 or 4 years now. Took two friends there for what I hoped would be one more really GREAT meal, since I have always thought so much of this place - but - what a disappointment it was ! ! One ordered the Beef Wellington, which arrived very pasty white - the pastry was not browned at all - the meat inside appeared to be more like a tough Sirloin than the Tenderloin called for in a Wellington, but most of all the three of us agreed that the taste itself was utterly terrible - we could not imagine what the chef had done to ruin this dish. Another of us had the Chicken Livers, and as inexpensive as Chicken Livers are to buy, I could not imagine why - instead of serving the livers whole, they were chopped up into unrecognizable items on the plate and served in a gravy melange of some sort. Tried as we did, none of us could find a recognizable chicken liver on the plate ! Why are the chicken livers NOT served whole ?? The third person ordered the Petite Rack of Lamb which was prepared exactly as ordered and was the one meal we all should have ordered. After having enjoyed this restaurant for at least ten years prior, I am sad to say that I will never again try this restaurant. The really nice lady at the table next to us said she has eaten there for ten years now, but she also sent her food back, complaining it was not as she ordered. The ambiance left a lot to be desired - but through no fault of the staff - but only occasioned by what I thought was a large and loud party, only to be amazed when I finally turned around to find it was only one very loud elderly couple who I guess thought they were at home arguing in their Living Room. Our waiter James was exceptional in his attention to our needs and his service to our table, and should be commended for putting up with having to serve such below-quality food to patrons. He dealt with our complaints like a gentleman and a professional in his field. The value of course cannot be beat at their $12.95 weekly specials, but even so is not a value at any price when the food is so lacking in appeal and taste. As I said, after having not only enjoyed, but recommended this restaurant so very much over the past ten years or so, this will be my last visit there - sad really.
