Diner Reviews
  • "Second time eating here and it won't be our last. Great food and great service!"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "I think the food was great, for the adults. My kids didn't like the food at all. The staff tried to change it for them a few times so the service was great. Waitress, Michelle,was friendly and helpful. prices are steep, been to much more exclusive for much less. Another issue is there is no restroom. you have to go to the second floor of the hotel to go pee."

  • "We have been to Braddock's on several occasions and have always had a great meal. This past visit we were celebrating my husband's birthday and the evening was quite memorable. The food was extremely delicious and our server, Justin, went out of his way to make our dinner experience a grand experience. Highly recommend the restaurant to all our friends and relatives."

  • "The restaurant itself is inside the Renaissance Hotel in Pittsburgh, directly across from PNC Park. The service was excellent, as well as the food. There were 2 in my party and we ordered the short rib pierogies, and were thrilled we did. The plate had 3 pierogies over a bed of flavored leeks, topped with a beef reduction sauce. Amazing. For dinner we shared the seared scallops over polenta, and the weinersnitzlel with red cabbage and spaetzle. Both dishes were excellent. The wine list was pricy, we opted for a glass of the house red. Overall, a wonderful dining experience!"

  • "Love to eat here before events at the Benedum and Heinz Hall. Staff sensitive to the fact that you have someplace to be later! Great cocktail and whiskey selection in addition to the wines. Excellent food; we both recommend the scallops and the salmon. Wonderful place to start a night on the town!"

  • "One of Pittsburgh's best kept secrets for amazing food. Great place to eat in the Cultural District before a performance. Great food and service with a nice ambiance. We have eaten here regularly have have never been disappointed."

  • "Went here with my husband and son (baby) during the Sephora benefit event that was going on in the lobby. It was a little noisy, but it was the perfect distraction for my son. Food as usual was delicious, my husband ordered the specials and ate every bite, I ordered the chicken. Make sure you order the braised beef appetizer with creamed leeks, it's a great blend of flavors. I didn't even know they served deserts. I got an apple crisp and my husband got a s'mores desert. Both were very delicious. We had an enjoyable evening out. Reservations are needed on weekends."

  • "We have been wanting to try this restaurant for some time. Well this weekend we did and what a pleasant surprise. From amazing setting to superb food and service at fair prices made it a very nice dinner across the board. The lobby of the hotel is worth seeing in itself and the restaurant is really well restored to timely glory. Very nice menu with a wide variety also of small plates/appetizers and good selection of entrees. Was NOT at all busy for a Saturday night. Anyone looking for a solid place for a great dinner in downtown Pittsburgh MUST give Braddocks a try...we did and will be back again for sure!!"

    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "This was my second visit to Braddock's, both were pleasant dining experiences. The atmosphere was relaxed, sometimes you hear a few shouts from the bar if a game is on, but over all its quiet. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food was very good on both occasions"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Our dinner on Saturday night was perfect.From the time we were seated till we left everything was spot on. The food was outstanding.Our waitress was friendly and very knowledgeable on the menu.Her recommendations on the menu was outstanding. We are looking forward to returning for dinner."

  • "We really enjoyed sampling the delicious cocktails. Also, neat dessert selection and delicious steak. The service was attentive without being annoying."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Four of us ate here before a theatre performance and everyone enjoyed the meal. Two ordered the petit filet and two ordered the dinner salads. The salads were large and filled with fresh items. The steaks were tender and the sides were tasty. The noise level was rather loud due to a large group seated in the center of the dining room."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We go here often as it the perfect location before any of the pittsburgh theaters- It is a very comfortable atmosphere. The Food is great, the service has always been wonderful. The every changing Perogi feature is always a treat!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Food was outstanding, damn shame that there was annoying noise from a very nearby wedding at the hotel and that the wine list is priced up in the stratosphere (food was reasonably priced, to be fair.) I love wine with a nice dinner but there is no way I am going to pay $60+ for a wine I routinely put on my table at home for $16. And I enjoy quiet during a meal, but they insist on opening the restaurant to the lobby letting in all manner of noise including the aforementioned wedding party. If you are hard of hearing (or love noise) and don't drink (or too wealthy to care about the price of the wine) then you must dine here, the food really is VERY good."

  • "I've always been pleased with Braddock's, but this time something was missing with the food. In particular, the crab cake starter had much more filler, and the "Pork & Beans" (braised pork shank) was lacking in flavor, in fact it seemed to be "warmed up". Perhaps it was warmed up before as well, but this time it lacked the zing I'm used to. Next time I'll try the Kielbasa started, and something else for my entree."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "It was my first time. It definitely won't be the last. The filet was amazing."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I honestly never heard of this place, but saw the good reviews on Open Table and decided to give it a try before seeing a show. Honestly it was one of the best dinners my wife and I have ever had. Her Gnocchi and Lobster dish was so light and delicious and my salmon was cooked perfectly. Can't recommend it more."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "There were 3 of dining. The apps were fantastic and my steak was great, however the rest of party were not happy with their meal ( fish and chips and the 1/2 chicken). We loved their Moscow mule and chocolate martinis."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Everything we got was fantastic. Every staff member we talked to was extremely friendly and professional. My husband and I have already made reservations to go again!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • " I expected this to be a four star restaurant from the comments from other customer. I never expected to have to ask for water that I saw on other tables but was not offered. The Crab Cakes were served with a side of a few sparse asparagus. The presentation of this meal was not good! When I commented to the waiter about this he offered to bring me "more" sparse looking asparagus not a different side. We also ordered ice tea that came with no ice, lemon, straw or ice tea soon. Bread, which we also had to ask for was stall. This was not one of our better meals and will not be returning. I realize many of the issues were with the server, but some of the problems were directly with the restaurants management."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My friend and I were going to the theater and decided to try Braddock's for dinner. A salmon dish was the special that evening, and oh, what a delightful dish it turned out to be! It was a special northern salmon over a layer of artichokes, feta and rice, and topped with a tomato pesto and sprigs of greens. My friend had filet mignon, which was just melt-in-your mouth delicious. Our server was very attentive, but not invasive. We will definitely go back to Braddock's American Brasserie again!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We decided to try Braddock's at the Renaissance before the CLO because we had a gift certificate. What an excellent experience it was! The food was great and the service was even better. They let us split a salad and an entre so that we would have room for the tomato bisque which was outstanding. Just a short walk from the Benedum this is a new top choice for us."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Their Mahi-Mahi special was every bit what the waitress described, it had a lot of taste. The 18 oz bone-in ribeye steak was tender and juicy. I was pleasantly surprised there was hardly any fat and the bone the size of a lamb chop. It came with potatoes and asparagus. Both cooked to perfection! We have made this restaurant our dining place every time we come to town for symphonies and broadway shows."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Had a fantastic experience at this restaurant. Had the filet and it was cooked to perfection. Service was great. Was not busy - reasonable price for the meal. Would definitely recommend this location!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We chose Braddock's for our double-date-night dinner because it was next door to the Byham, where we had tickets to the show, and was very convenient. While we had eaten in the bar before and found it to be quite excellent, we'd never sat in the restaurant before, but had high hopes due to our previous experience. We were not disappointed. Every aspect of the meal was fabulous, from the ambience to the service to the cocktails to the food, all met or exceeded all of our expectations. We shared the featured appetizer, and all got different entrees and cocktails, and everyone was quite satisfied - the ingredients and preparation was delicious, and the portions were quite generous. We will definitely be patronizing them in the future."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "My husband, son and I had a wonderful lunch. We had been on the road for five hours prior to lunch and wanted a quiet place to visit with my son and relax. The staff was friendly, attentive and made menu suggestions. We stayed in the hotel housing this restaurant, and liked both the Renaissance Hotel and Braddock's . The sandwich portions were large enough to share, and were delicious. The staff was happy to split them for us. We will definitely eat at this restaurant and stay in this hotel again when we visit. "

  • "Just delightful! We had a reservation for dinner before going to the Symphony. The dining room was quite empty to my dismay! Not a good sign! However everything we ordered was perfect and we'll come back often!"

  • "perfect for before concerts will go again..can have a light meal or afine dining meal"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "This restaurant in the Pgh Renaissance hotel has changed a bit over the years. It is more conventional -- and continental -- now but very good. We enjoyed a great bruschetta appetizer with goat cheese and roasted red peppers (instead of the usual tomato chunks), followed by two great entrees: a large, fresh Caesar salad topped with chicken, and my Amish chicken half accompanied by a wonderful red pepper polenta. I didn't even think i liked polenta, but this was great. They also gladly swapped another veggie for me when I said no to the asparagus that was offered. Nice setting and fun to watch people come and go through the hotel lobby, esp on a prom night."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We went on a Friday evening (early) before the symphony. Pleasant, timely service, good drinks from the bar, very good food. Setting was reasonably quiet (it was still early) and dignified (no kids, probably too expensive). Price was quite reasonable ($300 for five, including tip) for downtown. One minor flaw -- the bathroom was pretty far away. But, that certainly did not detract from a very nice dining experience!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Beet and goat cheese salad, Chef Red's potato gnocchi. Schedule confession because something this good must surely be a sin. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "There were four of us, we all had something different and we were all very pleased. My crab cakes were the best I have had. My husbands salmon with whiskey glaze was prepared perfectly....not over cooked. We were all too full for dessert but the dessert selections looked wonderful. We will definitely be going back.....and saving room for dessert!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Dinner was superb! My husband and I loved our meals, just melted in your mouth! My husbands' breakfast was better than mine. I had the French toast and it appeared and tasted as if regular thin bread was used, nothing special."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We've eaten here twice and will be back often. The food is outstanding. Prices are a bit high, but are comparable to similar restaurants of this quality. Service was superb. Everything - from the goat cheese/beet salad (available as a side or a meal) to the "lick the plate" Whisky Glazed Salmon - was delicious and cooked perfectly. It's in the Cultural District, so this place is perfect before or after shows. Hands down, best choice for a great meal if you're heading to any of the venues in the area."

  • "My husband and I took our parents here for the Mother's Day brunch buffet, and I was underwhelmed, to say the least. For nearly $40 a person, I had expected fresh, quickly-rotating, well-prepared food. Unfortunately, a few of the dishes seemed to have been overcooked and then left to sit open in their warming trays for quite a while, making them dry and tough. They also sat us in a corner of the lobby where they had their dirty dish station RIGHT behind us, which was not very pleasant. Lastly, we were surprised that a 20% gratuity was automatically added for our server, despite the meal being a buffet. She did occasionally bring us drinks and take our plates, but 20% is usually only standard, in my experience, for a full-service meal. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I took my wife and family to Braddocks for Mothers Day brunch expecting an upscale experience. We were bitterly disappointed. We certainly paid an upscale price, over $260 for a party of six. Once you got past the impressive lobby the dining area was hotel plain. The food was fair overall. The service was the worst I have had in years. We had duly made reservations for 10am but arrived at 9:50 to find the buffet not completed, a long line of people and no one seating. We then had to wait for a table to be cleared and set until 10:20 to be seated despite multiple tables set and ready. At 10:45 I had to find a busboy to get a waiter. Just horrible."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We almost always get great food here, and it's great to wait for others in the beautiful lobby. This time, with bizarro traffic, the valet service is the only way we made dinner and the theater."

  • "Plenty of good drinks on the menu and some tasty options on the dinner menu."
