    I went to Braddock's on a date last Saturday before the opera and it was a wonderful experience. Both our entrees were delicious and the service, by Cody, could not have been any better. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to enjoy some classic American fare. I wish I had made plans to try out the pierogies but I will the next time we go. Enjoy everyone!

    Had not been to Braddock's in a few years...it will be years before we consider going back. The savory pumpkin pierogies were excellent, but everything else was just OK at best. Our server seemed very good, but it was apparent she had just too many tables. There are just too many exceptional choices in the Cultural District to waste your time here.

    Braddock's was absolutely amazing. Everything my date and I ordered was beyond compare. I would highly recommend everything we ordered which included the Rabbit Parpadelle, Red Potato Gnocchi and Lobster, Bruchetta, the Raspberry Mule, Prohibition Pear, Godiva chocolate martini, and the creme brûlée of the day featuring sweet potato flavors. I came here for my birthday and think I might just make it tradition to come back every year after now.

    This restaurant, in the Renaissance Hotel, is a good pre theater(or concert) choice. The menu, not huge yet varied, offers varied size offerings that are tastily prepared--even if there's overkill on the number of "frites" accompanying several dishes. The service is very friendly and not rushed. It has a nice wine list and its menu is reasonably priced. What I like best about Braddocks is that, even when full, it is possible to have a conversation! The tables are not so close together that you're not sure if your with your table or the next-----UNLIKE most of the restaurants in the theater district.

  • Pittsburgh becomes Manhattans
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/5/2014
    The food is quite good, although the cheesy meatballs, a side offering for the pasta dishes, were just OK. Plates were colorful, veggie risotto excellent as was the rabbit pappardelle - vewwy wabbitty, with, or course, carrots. I do like manhattans, which one can build from a number of spirit/vermouth/bitters selections, unparalled in this town, with barrel aged elixers about to make their debut. The brasserie is just off the main lobby, which is a stone and tile construction of superior quality. A throwback to a time when masons were artisans with passion. Go before of after the theatre for a libation and stay for dinner.

    The brunch buffet had a great omelet station, but everything else was kind of "eh" especially for the price. The cinnamon raisin French toast was rock hard. I could not cut through it. The fresh fruit, eggs, and potatoes were decent, but it's nothing better than you'd find at Eat N Park. The blintzes were pretty good; I'm not used to seeing them on brunch buffets, so they were a nice surprise. I don't think I'll be going back there for brunch anytime soon.

    My husband and I enjoyed our gourmet meals and the superb service received during the dining experience. The Gerber chicken and the salmon dishes with their delicious sauces were cooked to perfection. Our wine per suggestion from our waiter complimented the food nicely. The only disappointment was the crème bruele dessert. It was kindly removed from our bill. We will definitely dine at Braddock's again!

    No one at our table liked the Mason jars which have replaced the water goblet. . It's not a picnic venue nor does it go with the decor. Bring back the regular glasses! In addition, the menu needs a major overhaul. Since it opened they have the same menu items. The dessert menu too needs to be revamped as well. No sorbets anywhere just the same old same old. It is quiet which affords a pleasant dinner conversation with company. No screaming is necessary to be heard.

    Another visit to Braddocks - another great dinner. Spouse had the scallops over red pepper polenta. I had the dinner sized portion of the arugala salad with the addition of grilled chicken, tossed with a light vinegarette. Our waiter, Justine, was excellent. Checking back just enough without being intrusive. While food is wonderful, restaurant seems to have a hard time deciding what it wants to be. Carpeting was replaced with a nice black & white bistro style tile and the upholstering is scheduled for replacement. The table covering is brown butchers paper, bistro style. But what's up with the glasses? Why serve the water/soda in a Mason ball jar? A better choice, keeping with the bistro style, would be a large, heavy glass. M

    We went for our anniversary and had a great time. We did go on a Thursday evening, I'm assuming a day that is normally not that busy, so it was quiet and private. It was the only time I have been there so not sure how busy it gets. The food was good and the service was great. They were very accomodating for our anniversary, sitting us away from other guests and giving us complementary champagne. We will definitely be making a trip back. Side note: I heard their brunch is really good, but I haven't had a chance to go for it.

    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.

    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!

    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!!

    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.

    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.
