We had a really nice time – The hubby and I wandered in on New Years Eve, it was a Monday, we had no reservation. The staff was nice from the front door to the table. Monday nights are 1/2 price bottle night and we scored some good deals. We had a half bottle of Moet White Star for $18. Come on, you can't get a crappy house sparkling wine for $9 a glass. It was a steal. Our waitress told us that she was new to table service and did a great job. While maybe lacking a bit of finesse that comes from being a career waiter ( hubby and I have been doing it for years ) she was so sweet and we had a great time. We did three courses and she just let us relax and enjoy ourselves...she wasn't pushy at all. I would go back anytime. I don't know why folks thought it was so noisy. It was packed when were there, and I didn't think it was that bad... I guess I have been to too many rock concerts. haha
Best eatery in town – I have lived in Chapel Hill for just over 10 years, and have dined at 411 at least twice that, 822 times.
It's the best place in town, period. Great pizza, salads, entrees, sometimes over sauced pasta dishes that can be adjusted when ordering, great service, great sunday brunch.
Excellent wine list, and good beer too.
is this place really in a college town?? – Chicken Parm was awesome! breaded but not deep fried it taste fresh and light, cesear salad was also good, and the petite menu was very good if your looking to avoid HUGE portions and over eating pasta. the desert you definitely need to get the million dollar pie it was like a peanut butter fudge cheesecake, split it because its rich but you will be IN HEAVEN! wait wasnt bad with a reservation and the service was good. Be prepared to pay a pretty penny, but the food was worth what you pay.
Whatever!!!! – This place is the best place on Franklin st. because all there is, is a bunch of bars!! I would not go back there if someone paid me money!
Excellent food – Why would anyone go to Macaroni Grill or Olive Garden when there's 411 West? I've never had a bad meal there and have probably gone 7-8 times. My parents don't like a ton of restaurants but we almost always go here when they are in town because they love it. In terms of service, they've actually improved. I've sometimes had to wait awhile on Saturday night to get a table but it's great that they now take reservations. They also offer free valet parking so you don't have to try to find a spot in their small lot. A group of eight of us each ordered different items and we all enjoyed what we got. I don't know if you can go wrong with what you order here. Good food, with good ambiance (it sometimes can get a little noisy) with prices that are pretty reasonable.
Careful, don't give a bad review..they remove it – I posted a review a few years back and found it interesting that it has been removed. I haven't been back since, but up until that point my husband and I were dragged there countless times by friends. We finally had to take a stand and just say "no."
Unless they have changed their bad attitude, bland food and poor service...my previous review still stands. Truth apparently hurts.
Noisy, snobs – Very noisy. Reservations mean nothing. Treat you like you're lucky to be there. Very noisy (didn't learn a thing with their Raleigh location). On the other hand, the food is to die for. But you can die for food somewhere else with more ambience, style and poise. Did I say it was noisy?
Great place to feel right at thome! – My family and friends dine at 411 regularly as well as grabbing take out now and then. Every time I am there, the food is fabulous and the staff are all very friendly! It is the place all my out of town guests want to go - and for good reason! It is always a good time - great wine and great food!
Editorial Review by Kelly Ferguson – Professionals gather en masse for pastas and Sangiovese at this casual, yet upscale, Italian cafe.
Why Do People Think This Place Is Good? – Four Eleven West is a mediocre Italian restaurant. It has a more creative menu than Romano's Macaroni Grill, but its food isn't any better. I have yet to find a dependable, bread-and-butter Italian restaurant in the Triangle. I guess compared to the other low-grade restaurants on Franklin Street, Four Eleven West seems like a four-diamond experience to college and grad students. Otherwise, I cannot think of a reason why this place survives.
To its credit, the bar is nice here, albeit quite small.
