Call during the day and speak with Brian. He's amazing--impatient, rude, utterly disrespectful. Must have had a traumatic childhood.
Reminded me Why I Stopped Going Clubbing. – We started off the Saturday night excited as usual, having not gone clubbing for a while. The flyer said "Hosted Bar", which translates to OPEN BAR, but failed to mention the fact that it was for a measly, pathetic period of 10 minutes, which we had of course, missed. The bartenders, albeit hot, epitomized the worst qualities in the gay world (btw, I'm gay myself, so I know & can speak freely on this topic)--conceited, shallow, and reflected the exact opposite of the good looks they had. I stood at two bars, which neither were busy, having more than one bartender, and I waited 10 minutes if not more without any acknowledgement from anyone. The bartenders were goofing off as they served drinks in the most unprofessional manner I have ever witnessed. This experience will be the last time I ever go clubbing again in WeHo. The music/ambiance/lights would have been a delight had the customer service not been the most abominable I have ever experienced at a club.
Had dinner than stayed alot longer than expected! – Originally i was with a few friends from out of town. I've never been here before. They wanted me to take them out and show them a good time, but i was tired. Luckily, I happened to have dinner here. We finished up and were debating on exactly where we were going to go and BOOM! the place turned into a night club. I couldn't have been happier! We had a nice corner claimed and had a blast! I wish more places would spontaneously turn into my destinations!
wonderful night out - every time – As a regular at 11 I can say without a doubt it is one of my favorite spots in the area. The food is always prepared masterfully and always arrives at the table hot. I especially enjoy Tuesday and Sunday evenings due to the crowd and the delightful and pleasant service provided by lead waiter Andrew. He truly makes dining at 11 a pleasure with his warm smile and hospitable attitude. I take guests and clients there all the time and everyone has been impressed with both the service and food (as well as the cocktails) everytime.
A good place – Eleven's best night is Friday for FRESH. Good looking crowd, good DJ and excellent bartenders (Jessie is the best piece of eye candy in Weho). Tuesday is also a good night to check out this club for the Penthouse 88 strippers (hosted by Jesse).
Best to avoid on Wednesdays and Thurdays (hed to Apple instead). Service Sundays is no longer running but DJ Griff still spins some great music. This place is not really known for its food. Overall a good place for a drink and to watch the Weho crowd trying to act fabulous.
great DJs and Hot bartenders! – This place has become my favorite club in WeHo. the dance floor is jumpin every friday, we have a Fab time there! the bartenders are all hot and their shirts come off around 11 or so. I havent seen the their hottest bartender in a while..his name was Jesse with a southern accent! he was so charming and had the best body ever!!!! and i cant forget about Johnnyyyy...he is prob the sweetest bartender they have(smokin hot to!) for the most part all the staff is great...however is gets so packed at times u can not move! overall i love the place! thanks for listening, Elton=)
Avoid! Avoid! Avoid! – THE PITS!!! Service is absolutely horrible. We ate there and partied after last Friday. What a joke. The place is packed so full, you are like sardines. The food is mediocre and SO NOT WORTH IT! The servers are lame, and the staff is snotty. There is one fat white manager there, short guy, who looks like a chubby 15 year old and is SO RUDE. On the plus side, the ambiance (other than being overcrowded) is cool and the bouncers are AWESOME!!!! If I were the manager of this place, I would promote the bouncers and bar tenders and dump the rest of the staff.
Eleven is our favorite restaurant! – We dine at Eleven every week, sometimes several times a week, and absolutely love their food! We've followed their chef Sal Prado for two years, he's probably prepared 100 dinners for us in the past two years, not kidding! And now he's doing a great job at Eleven. We've tried most things on the menu, and now (July 2008) they have a New Latin Bar & Lunch Menu full of more great stuff.
I'd suggest picking appetizers from the Latin menu, our favorites are: Coconut Shrimp (so yummy!), Chicken Quesadilla (very filling, you could even have it as an entree), Nachos Picante with Beef (also big), or Fish and Chips, which comes with 3 fillets of fish and fries, a lot of food for only $11. Other appetizers we like are Bermuda Rum Shrimp, Macaroni & Queso, and their Cesar Salad is good, too; I have mine with extra anchovies since I like things salty.
And I know smoked salmon may be another acquired taste of mine, but if you like that, their Smoked Salmon appetizer is deee-licious! It comes with these little bread squares that have all the crust cut out, so all you have is the soft center of the bread, lightly toasted. You put on some real butter and a slice of smoked salmon, and bite in! It's a perfect combination.
As for entrees, our favorites are:
Lobster Ravioli (truly to die for! and it's only $17), we ask for it "old style", the chef will know what that means, I don't remember how it's different. It's very creamy and has bits of smoked salmon (here I go again with the salmon!).
Chilean Seabass. I generally don't like cooked fish, but here's an exception! Their seabass is so tasty and juicy, and the portion is huge. Even a meat-eater like me can feel satisfied after finishing that.
And of course, you can't go wrong with Filet Mignon.
As a side to the fish/meat entrees, I highly recommend their Au-Gratin Potatoes. It's a little square of creamy potato heaven! Absolutely delicious, melts in your mouth.
Hot bar, blah dining – Eleven in the gay area of West Hollywood opened up within the last year or so and became an instant weekend destination. The dining leaves a lot to be desired, so skip it. It was expensive and unmemorable. But come and stay for the bar crowd at night. The club boasts aerial shows on popular nights and last I checked still didn't have a cover charge. The line, of course, grows in reaction. Upstairs is a great lounge, but downstairs is the place to be seen. Step outdoors when you feel the claustrophia setting in -- not a lot of smokers. Grab a table along the wall if you can, and KEEP it for the proper people watching. Overall, I'd say this is a GO.
The food was good, but the hostess and the entire operations in the kitchen SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 – After waiting for 45 mins for my reservation, the useless hostess asked "are you still interested for a table?"
I was told by the useless hostess to grab the table before any one else took it before me. If I would have known this since the beginning I would have done that. It is very unfortunate this place does not know what service is and that they hire brainless people to work for them.
To top my night off, my friend order the rib eye med rare. Unfortunately, the rib eye came well done, so he sent it back. 10 mins later they brought back a new york steak and told him that was rib eye.....................we brought this issue to their attention and the so called "mgr" who was partying up with his friends next to our table came and apologized and reassured him the steak he got was the rib eye. Even the waiter agreed with the fact the steak brought to us was a new york steak. I am so sorry for the owner of this place who hires ignorant staff who can not identify a rib eye from a new york steak.
Needless to say, I will never visit this place again due to the lack of service and obvious training the entire staff gets.
