    Customer's order must be completed without any error. To do this order request should be checked again and again between waiter/waitress and kitchen.

    The venue, food and service is excellent. It's expensive, but well worth it. The staff exhibits a proper amount of contact, from management to the specific server working with your particular table. We can tell they care, they want to see 811 succeed. We will definitely continue to come back. This was our third visit and all three have been excellent.

    We are repeat clients of 8Eleven and always find it exceeds our expectations for a special evening out. The only very slight issue is it can get a bit loud which occasionally makes it more difficult to carry on conversations with those in your party, this is particularly true with the elderly or those with hearing aids.

    We frequently dine here for special days and our date nights. We were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary. Service was extremely slow. Our waiter spent 15 minutes talking at a table next to us...this is how the evening started. Thus we did not even get water or drinks for the first 15 minutes.

    The room, ambiance and service was very good EXCEPT I left feeling completely violated.. I'm a veteran foodie having dined at some of the finest tables on the planet. I ordered a top shelf cali cab and my server suggested a "special" cab they were featuring.. all good but she failed to advise me they were charging 40.00 a pour!!! Had I known I would have declined the offer. No transparency. And when I questioned the charges.. giggles and yeah 40.00 a glass.... not a good thing.

    Our fourth visit. I hope not our last. It was our waitress's first day on the job. Such a charming young woman who we encouraged. She did forget to turn in our order. I had to remind her that our food had not arrived nearly an hour later. Then she checked. Then she admitted she forgot to key in our requests. Then she apologized. Then we waited. About dinner - we ordered 4 appetizers TAPAS style with the thought of sharing and then ordering a main. We ended up only having our appetizers, I was disappointed because we came specifically to show off the new resturant to a friend of ours who worked for me at Purdue from 1982-4 when I was on the staff at Purdue. We did get our wine, we did have a good conversation, but I am not sure I will take the risk again - especially when the tab for 3 diners , 4 appetizers and one bottle of wine was $105.00. Plus, we still tipped. Hopefully our waitress will improve and she will thank all of the others who came to the rescue to finally bring our food. AMK, Purdue retiree and Alum.
