About Us

Our Food

At eleven plates & wine we are about inspired food created by inspired people. The menu is a twist on the ordinary with a healthy dose of creativity artfully prepared by Executive Chef Ricardo Gutierrez and his talented staff. Chef Gutierrez’s culinary style is fresh, simple, direct and seasonal.  He strives to not over complicate a dish so the flavors of the ingredients can naturally shine. Offering eleven “Small Plates” and eleven “Lunch & Dinner Plates” our menu is infused with innovative food that our guests are sure to love!

Our Atmosphere

Our goal in designing eleven plates & wine was to have a restaurant that was inviting, warm and comfortable, welcoming for all occasions. With a great private room for events, a large bar for a quick bite, a dining room with great views of the Hill Country and one of the best patio atmospheres in Austin, eleven plates & wine is the go-to spot for visiting, relaxing, and conversation friendly dining.

Our Service

Our Guests’ needs are our priority and when choosing our staff, we look for Team members who care about all of the details that make a dining experience special. Our hands on management and team-service creates a supportive bond that fuels a team spirit creating a caring friends and family environment that is enjoyed by our Team and felt by our Guests.
