After a museum tour we stopped for lunch at the highly rated restaurant! The entire restaurant spans a spring with glass walls and a stunning curved wood ceiling. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. The lunch menu offered mostly sandwiches and salads which were very creative ingredients. My choice was the turkey melt-piled... More

My friend and I each ordered the aptly named Eleven burger, cooked perfectly, a nice amount of cheese, a little heat, garlic aioli. The taro chips wouldn't have been my first pick but I ate a few. Fairly priced and the service was attentive. Also, the view was stunning on both sides. Can't wait to return!

I didn't expect all that much from a museum café where you order at a counter, sit down, and have it brought out to your table, but I was very pleasantly surprised and delighted. The relatively limited menu doesn't really hint at how complex and refined your food will be. I'm still thinking about the wonderful "Beans and Cornbread" with... More

Great place to catch a fabulous cup of coffee or a meal. So much better than a fast food restaurant. Love the design of the restaurant and view of the Crystal Bridges property.

Have been here several times. End up eating here whenever we visit the museum (about once per year). Never had a bad meal. Limited menu, though. Don't expect much and you will be happy. Salads and a few sandwiches.

Located in the crystal bridges museum, the 11 spans a pond offering a nice view through the glass walls. The structure is impressive. The food service is stand in line to order and the food is delivered to the table. There is a separate coffee, beverage counter. The food is reasonable in price and meets expectations for a lunch or... More

After a breathtaking visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright Bachman Wilson house and an equally interesting visit to the Crystal Bridges Art Gallery I was dumped smack in the middle of Eleven. What a great restaurant. Architecture is superb. Wait staff was hyper professional and an absolute delight. Had the shrimp and grits. Only 19$ but pretty much in the... More

Romantic, elegant, and one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the chef is outstanding, and the views are breathtaking.

The dining room at Crystal Bridges is stunning and a tough act to follow. Service is very good (but do I need to be explained the concept behind the chef's vision before being asked if I'm ok?) Interesting menu solidly delivered, the execution has become more refined with time. The food now tastes as good as it looks!

One of the cool things about Crystal Bridges is that you can spend the whole day there because it is self-contained. Have a nice lunch, view the exhibits, take a hike on the trails, enjoy a docent-led art tour, visit the gift shop, then stay for a gourmet dinner. Food is excellent, prices are reasonable, views are amazing, and service... More
