    We started coming to Mallorca about 15 yrs ago. And moved out of town over 10 yrs now. Food is as good as it was then. Consistent and delicious as always!! Staff is overly attentive...no need to worry about pouring yourself another glass from you sangria pitcher, it's all done for you! Not many places have this kind of service anymore. The fresh stuffed mushrooms and garlic shrimp or chicken are a must!

    My wife and I were seated early for our reservation on a Saturday night at 7:30. Restaurant was PACKED. We were seated in the back of the restaurant in the corner. We were immediately given water then bread by the wait staff. Our main waiter came over and went through the specials. Nice guy but really seemed to be in a rush. He kept asking if we were ready to order 2 minutes after looking at the menu. Our food was decent. Mussels are really really good. The Shrimp in Garlic sauce was overcooked. Dessert was good. After we were done eating our main course it took our waiter 20 min to come check on us. Overall it was ok. Not sure I'd make an effort to go back.

    Service was friendly. And the servings are large. However, nothing was exceptional. There were too many specials to keep track of. Print a daily menu if you are going to have over 20 specials. I had roast duck that was slightly overcooked. My wife had lobster ravioli, but there was hardly a hint of lobster. The wine list looked very good and extensive. And singing a birthday song in the restaurant is uncommon when you're paying that much. Maybe just a free dessert would suffice. Otherwise the atmosphere was quiet.

    My visit to Mallorca was not a good one. I was taken to Mallorca's by my co worker who raved about the place. It was my first time there and I ordered a Chicken Caesar Salad. I had been craving a salad so was excited to get it. The first thing i noticed was the hair that was cooked into my chicken breast. It was not a hair lying on the salad but it was hair that had to be peeled away from the chicken as it was sealed in by the searing of the meat. The waiter immediately came over and took the plate away saying he would make me a new one. I told him that he could make it to go because I would not be eating it. The manger never came out to apologize and neither did the chef. I was expeting more from the well know restaurant.

    On Saturday night we were promptly seated outside on a beautiful night. Service team made us feel special and we were off to a great start. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and it was delicious. Apps came fast and were decent. Gazpacho soup was quite good. Then things slowed down very considerably. After apps it was at least 45 minutes until entrees came. They were not worth the wait. I got Paella ( "when in Spain…" ) As soon as it arrived , I could smell the fish was way past its prime. I should have sent it back. My wife's tilapia stuffed with crabmeat was huge but just OK and I think the crabmeat was fake. My son enjoyed his filet. We ended with a very good dessert, I never mentioned my smelly paella but won't be in a hurry to return.

    Our server was spectacular, however the night we were there the kitchen was extremely backed up and meals took over an hour to prepare (we ordered a steak, arroz con pollo and bronzino). Bronzino was slightly underdone, although that was mostly corrected by the waiter when he filleted the fish tableside. Steak was tasty, arroz con pollo was slightly bland despite addition of chorizo to the mix.

    I was deeply disappointed in the service on my visit to Mallorca. We frequently dine at Mallorca about once every two months. The rice was cold, the duck was all bones and not edible. The twin lobster tails were overcooked and tasted like rubber. I asked for a bread plate after all of the bread plates were removed from the table along with the dirty salad plates; instead they brought more bread. The waiter that took my order never appeared again. Someone else deliver our coffee, sangria, espresso, dessert, and check. I felt rushed and I was never asked how our dinners were. I was ultimately disappointed in the service and quality of food.

    Mallorca is a nice place with a beautiful garden,which is far from quiet since it is on E Carson str.After we sat down waiter comes and starts talking about today's specials.Guess what? He kept talking for 10 mins,telling us about 25 different today's special dishes!I don't know if anyone can remember them afterwards.The menu is big but still way overpriced.We ordered some wine (great) ,some baked clams (not the best ,certainly not worth the price),mussels in red sauce(really bad sauce) and their stuffed lobster. After appetizers waiter comes with stuffed tails instead saying there was misunderstanding in kitchen, without even asking us if it was ok!Make a long story short an ok place for special occasions but other than that dissapointing

    Went on our anniversary. I hadn't been in a decade, and my wife had never been there. I knew it would be expensive, but I wanted to bring her to someplace memorable. Quintessential continental style service, an excellent menu, and specials. It was mid-week thus they weren't that busy, and dining outside on a lovely late summer day made it even more enjoyable. They also own Ibiza next door enabling ordering from the tapas menu as well on the night we went.

    It is trying to be a fine dining experience but doesn't quite make it. Good food. Prices were a little high. We sat outside. The location is near a busy intersection. My husband noted a loud honk that stopped only when a waiter waved to the driver. Wines were overpriced. The service was mixed being attentive but not always effective. Our waiter kept approaching us even though our menus were still open. We were served salads twice, had to ask for a wine chiller, etc. But a server saw us leveling our table and came to the rescue. They served EACH of us complimentary cake for my birthday. At closing I saw chairs stacked on tables that were set for the next day. I felt sorry for whoever got the knife with the chair foot on it.

    I always enjoy the food and excellent service at Mallorca's. My husband and I try to dine here once a month and everytime it is a treat. This weekend we took my grandmother for the first time. She had surgery at the beginning of the summer and has not had a decent petite in months BUT she ate most of her food here and even ordered cake. It was a delightful 75th birthday for her the only thing we forgot to tell the staff it was her birthday.

    Was disappointed with Mallorca on this occasion. I thought the service which is typically top notch was lacking. Also, my wife has a Gluten Allergy and nobody seemed to be able to confirm what was and what wasn't gluten free which makes for a very uneasy meal. With the amount of people that currently have gluten allergies so high, there should be a gluten free menu or at least somebody who is knowledable on the subject. The chef should have come out and spoken to my wife instead of the waiter running back and forth and still not being sure. There were also numerous flies constantly flying around which should not be the case in an upscale restaurant.

    Mallorca still hires trained servers who are attentive to your every need. The place remains reliably old-school, with quality food, an amazing array of specials and friendly staff. We celebrated our anniversary, and the host found us a special table, delivered free desserts and sent over post-dinner drinks. Very classy.

This is the third time I have been to the Pittsburgh location and I have never been disappointed. I love the vibrancy of the south side and the service was, as always, great! I recommend a night out at Mallorca for any occasion.

    Mallorca has excellent food and service. Come hungry as the portions tend to be bigger than most other restaurants. This place has been in business quite a few years (I think the waiter said it opened in 1990), which counts in the restaurant business. The seafood and paella are what we go for usually. They have a pretty extensive, reasonably priced wine list.

    We went here during restaurant week and it was wonderful. Our waiter was great and very accommodating. He broke our cork and gave us a drink on the house. The Mallorca coffee was amazing! We had the stuffed calamari and mussels both were wonderful. The paella was good but the seafood was overcooked. The stuffed salmon on the other hand was perfectly cooked. I would go here again because of the ambiance and service.

    This was our first visit to Mallorica...It was our 20th wedding anniversary. Overall we had a very nice experience and would return. Excellent and diverse menu...both, diners who like "regular" food and "Foodies" who like to experiment would enjoy the offerings of their menu. We had the veal shank and a 22oz Delmonico with a brandy mushroom sauce...both were excellent. While the food was great...our preparation time in the kitchen was a bit long...without us saying a word about the delay, the server apologized for the wait and said that dessert was on the house. Service was overall very good. The Flan and Crème Brulee were excellent. Overall...very good. Stop in and enjoy. I recommend you make reservations.
