Great staff, great food, romantic dinner! The crostini appetizer is amazing! Husband had a filet with shrimp and cheese, and I had the Goodfellas pizza. Both were wonderful! The blood orange martini was delicious too.

Remarkably slow and impersonal service at the bar. Mediocre wine selection. Unimaginative menu offerings.

We came here after a friend recommended. We were not disappointed! We had pizza which was very tasty. All of the other dishes we watched pass by us looked just as delicious! Great beer and wine selections. The service is prompt and very friendly. Great atmosphere. Looks dressy but jeans are ok. We thought it would be pricey but it... More

Wanted to eat somewhere downtown Bangor. What a great choice. Stopped in on a Saturday night. Got seated right way. Great atmosphere. Very good menu. Wait staff was very accommodating. Recommendations were very good. The stake was perfect. The pricing was a little above average but worth it. I hope I can make it back someday.

We had dinner here last weekend. All-in-all, the food was good. I had the scallops in a tomato/cream.garlic sauce, with penne. It was excellent. The sauce was flavorful and the sea scallops were perfectly cooked. We also had bruschetta as an appetizer, which was very good. My wife had a scallop/strip steak combination. She liked the scallops, but the steak... More

We visited 11 Central for dinner on August 6th after stopping in town for a layover between New Brunswick and Portland. As usual the floor staff were extremely helpful and from the time we entered were more than accommodating. They helped find a spot for us for our son’s carrier and made sure we weren’t in the way. The meal... More

I had visitors from "away" and we wanted to have a nice dinner on a Saturday night. We had drinks, appetizers, and dinner and the service, atmosphere and the meals were excellent. We shared the smoked salmon plate and bruschetta plate with cocktails. For the main course, we ordered pork, duck breast pasta and scallops and a small caesar salad... More
