11A is a very cozy place to visit if you are looking for good food and wine or drinks with a nice atmosphere and friendly faces. It's not too chic and the staff is very relaxed and personal (in a good way). Here you can meet many locals and people from Linden area, which is one of Hannover's most upcoming and cultured areas these days. Since the place is quite popular it can be easy to get in contact with your neighbors sitting next to you, or sometimes even sharing the table with you. This can make the evening very interesting if you want it to be but, there is also room for privacy as well if that's what you are looking for.
The quality of the food is very good and you can find various dishes from vegetarian to meat or fish. They also have a weekly special menu which depends on the season. The price is also not too expensive and totally ok for the quality that you receive.
In the same location you also find a charmy wine bar where you can go to after eating or if you not feel ready to go home yet. This wine bar is very charmy in its own way and has a great personality!
It's definitely a place to visit if you are looking for something different than just a typical fancy restaurants or a tourist place. Just the atmosphere make the whole impression so much better than many other stylish restaurants I've been to.

If you're looking for cloth napkins, fancy schmancy dinnerware, and waiters who take your coat at the entrance, 11a is not for you. If you're looking for killer innovative dishes with organic local ingredients served in a greenhouse backdrop by servers who can just as easily be standing next to you in a mosh pit at a rock concert, this is the place go!

Having tired of the standard German breakfast, my husband and I who just moved here from the US in 2010 were looking for a different menu, preferably something fresh that didn't involve huge amounts of nitrates or sausage. That's when the smoked salmon stack at 11a became a real game-changer. Staying true to the greenhouse motif, there seems to always be a little green on every dish. A salmon Benedict without the hollandaise, the salmon stack has thin slices of crustless white toast corners with slices of their own cured salmon, deliciously dressed salad greens, and a poached egg. They even have a naughty English breakfast with fried eggs, bacon, cheese baked tomato, plenty of arugula, fried toast and beans. Breakfasts came with a glass of prosecco or juice. Their standard menu of house favorites is supplemented with a daily menu that changes to the local ingredients in season. We never know what to expect on the daily menu, but part of the fun is arriving one day to find they have an organic pasta bolognese made from locally hunted venison only to return another day and find they've already replaced that dish with an amazing organic lamb roast with roasted organic farmer's market veggies. The dishes are imagination with an easy hand and the prices are well within reason.

While this may not be the place to take Grandma--unless your Grandma is cool like mine is!--the food at 11a strives to give your palate and the planet the respect it deserves. Once you get over your need for white glove treatment while you're in Linden, because hello you're in LINDEN, you can focus on what really counts: the fantastic fare before you.

As already stated in other review, looking at the restaurant from the road, especially in winter time when there is nobody outside, does give any special feeling; the restaurant seems quite simple and with nothing special to offer.
Once you enter, the atmosphere is really nice, it's simple but warm and seems familiar even if it's the first time you stop there.
The service is great and the food is absolutely delicious. I took a beef carpaccio (the only thing I could say about it is that it was a little cold, probably just taken out from the fridge) and a beef steak. The latter was really amazing, good meat and cooked exactly as I asked.
The only thing I didn't was that it was not possible to pay by credit card (I don't know if that was related to their machines or if it's always like that) so I had to walk to the closest cash machine, located at 10 minutes walk distance.
If I will be back in Hannover for sure I will stop here again for dinner.
The restaurant is quite small (we were at the table with two people we didn't know) so it's not a good choice for very large groups or if you prefer more formal locations.

Invited to dinner by friends, they took us to 11A, which if you were to look at it from the outside, you would probably think "burger joint", "diner" or "pizza parlor". But what waits for you inside is truly amazing.

Excellent service, lively atmosphere, great music, extensive wine list, and I haven't even got to the meal yet. Great food, expertly prepared and presented. I can only imagine the amount of time and thought that the chef and his staff put in to create simple, and delicious meals . . it looks so effortless. The talented work of a culinary master.

After our meal, we went next door to enjoy at night cap at the adjoining Wine Bar. Brilliant.

What I was unable to find in Berlin, I found waiting for me in Hannover.

My husband and i had dinner here tonight and it was fab .! it looks nothing special from the outside . The tables are rustic but the food is what counts. It was worth the drive ...They have a specials board as well as a varied menu. The food was to die for as well as the very pleasant staff and great service. Reasonably priced at 45 Euros for 2 courses for 2 people. If you visit Hannover please go ,you wont be dissapointed......I am hopefully going to visit them again on the way back home to Sweden in 2 weks.
