Great for business lunches!

Terrace room - Repeat Customer
Regular attender at Terrace. Dining in the lobby or in the restaurant area is a nice choice. If you are opting for "bar food" you can request a menu from Tap Room or if you know what you want from the Tap Room menu you can place an order.
This is a very popular place, so if you are in a hurry, let your server know and they can expedite for you but this place is commonly filled with business meetings that may take an hour or more.
Food is great, my favorite wings in all of Pittsburgh actually (I eat three meals a day five days a week every other week over there as I travel on business).
Terrace is our go to place if we want to do a team meeting and want to stay close.

Dining in the Terrace Room
Dining in the Terrace Room was not just a meal. The ambiance of the restaurant creates a feeling that the diner has traveled back to a time where elegance and romance reigned supreme. I would highly recommend the Terrace Room to friends and family who are seeking a quiet, romantic evening with fabulous food!

The Terrace Room was great
The Terrace Room was great for Easter Brunch. The food, service and ambiance were all very good. We wanted a nice brunch, but did not want a huge buffet. This was perfect.

a lovely setting
Four of us, all adults, had lunch at the Terrace Room on Easter Sunday. The menu choices were very good, although if you are expecting a typical brunch menu or American-size potions, you will be disappointed. This was more European-style. The dessert bar included a crepe station and cotton candy. The only negative was that the clearing of plates was a little too aggressive. A few things were removed before I was finished with them.

Wonderful food, lousy service.
The Terrace Room is absolutely lovely in its decor. It's a bit overpriced, but it is in a major hotel in town, so I guess that is to be expected. We ordered the crab cakes - for $29, we were a little surprised to see only one crabcake on the dish. However, I can honestly say it was one of the best crabcakes I have ever had. I always get nervous when I hear "it's almost all crab" because that often translates to "it's really dry." Not this-mostly crab, but most and delicious.Service was lousy-20 minutes to get one glass of wine is not acceptable-waiter said he was "slammed."

We have been to The Terrace
We have been to The Terrace Room several times. The food is always very good and this time was no exception. I had braised pork with lentils and brussel sprouts that was so delicious. My husband had the filet with the most wonderful potatoes as a side dish (I stole several bites they were so good.) Nice Wine Spectator selctions in addition to the regular wine list. Service was much better than usual (it is often quite slow and spotty)--the meal was perfectly paced. Very pleased!

Located in a grand historic hotel of Pittsburgh. It's worth stopping by just to look at the architecture. The menu is excellent with many good items at reasonable prices for a restaurant of this quality.

Chef is open to changes and avoiding allergies. Creative and delicious!
Also - minimal cilantro - a dish should not be overwhelmed by the cilantro flavor . Thank you.

Sunday brunch was outstanding, The waiter went out of his way to meet the children's needs and any additional food that was not provided with the buffet. They allowed time for a leisure and relaxed celebration.

People adjacent were very loud which brought the level of intimacy down for us.

Very nice dinner
If you have not been to the Terrace Room it is worth the trip. Food and service are very good. I had the duck which was cooked perfectly and tasted great.

A gem in Pittsburgh
We arrived late on a get-away weekend in Pittsburgh and decided to dine here. It was a lovely experience with a professional waiter and very good food. Worth a trip back!

Top Drawer Experience
Wow! Everything was superior here. The food, the presentation, the service, the atmosphere. This is one of those grand old hotel restaurants that they don't make anymore. But I hope this one's around for a long time to come. They really did an excellent job with everything the night I was there.

The Terrace Room has being doing what it does so well for so long, it gets overlooked in the rush to admire the new kids on the block. It has become a regular stop when in Pittsburgh, and we're never disappointed. Put yourself in the hands of the waitstaff, and you won't be sorry with any of their recommendations. The kitchen hits the bull's-eye time after time, and it all happens in one of the most beautiful and unique settings anywhere. The Terrace Room proves that you don't need to be new to be inventive. Can't wait until our next visit to the area, and our next wonderful meal at the Terrace Room.

Magnificent historic dining room
Loved this beautiful room. Had dinner twice and brunch, and meals featured very well prepared food. Our dinner waiter was marvelous and so were other servers. We were puzzled by the lack of personnel at the front of the restaurant. At our first dinner the woman who greeted us said the room was not open yet despite information from the front desk. She checked and found she was wrong. At our second, much later, dinner we were seated promptly but we saw other potential patrons enter the almost-empty room and leave after no one greeted them.

Wonderful Classic Dining
Few hotel restaurants can combine classic levels of service, expertly prepared food and a beautiful ambiance as well as the Omni William Penn's Terrace Room. The stately dining room is elegant, yet approachable, and the menu offers an amazing selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts expertly prepared and attractively served. From arrival to departure, the staff was friendly and engaging with attentive service that never became intrusive. Every moment of my dining experience was exceptional, with fresh, flavorful food, presented elegantly. The overall experience was reminiscent of a time when stately city hotels pampered guests making every visit memorable. While not a trendy spot, The Terrace Room is real treasure in Pittsburgh.

My favorite place for lunch--both the ambience and the food.

Get people to your meeting
We hold our committee meetings at 8AM. I'm convinced that holding the meetings at the Terrace Room (a tradition started by the last committee chair) guarantees a great turnout. There's nothing like a fabulous breakfast to get people to a meeting!

Beautiful room, great service, very good food. Will go back again.

Aveline salad and filet mignon
The presentation of the Aveline salad--in sort of a little box made with cucumbers and daikon--was a surprise and an utter delight. I will always remember it. It tasted good, too. The filet mignon--medium rare--was done just right. I also had the chocolate terrine for dessert, which brought the meal to a nice conclusion. A great experience!

Decided to eat here before
Decided to eat here before a hockey game because of the open table reservation. The food, and service were excellent!! Great choice if you do not want to fight the crowds around consol. Will definitely be back!!

My mother and I were in Pittsburgh doing some shopping and we knew that we wanted to eat at the Terrace Room for lunch because we have had great food and great service there during prior visits. We enjoyed our lunch and we will be back!

Terrace Room a Downtown Gem
Excellent food, elegant surroundings in the venerable Omni William Penn Hotel & friendly attentive service makes The Terrace Room a great choice for special dining occasions. Hint: ask for Ernesto to be your server if he is available! He is a delight!

Our Thanksgiving Tradition
We love the Terrace Room (and the William Penn) for Thanksgiving and go there every year. It's the start of the holiday season for us. From the moment we walk into the lobby and see the gorgeous Christmas tree, to cocktails, to the amuse bouche, throughout the meal and the dessert buffet with wonderful coffee, we feel cared for and very well fed. The whole experience is delightful, and we would not miss it. It's also nice to see the same servers year after year, people who seem happy to work there, and who remember us. Lovely.

It was very lovely, lots of
It was very lovely, lots of good choices. My daughter prefers not to eat meat and they served an excellent ravioli stuffed with acorn squash-not everyone likes turkey! It was also nice that there was 5 entrees to choose from not a buffet. Also beautiful desserts but I was too full by then to eat much more. I will do it again next year. Lovely to not have to work all day cooking and cleaning. Staff e was very nice and friendly.

I dined here while a guest at the hotel and before attending the theatre. I enjoyed a good meal along with my young daughter. She chose to order from the regular menu, although I might suggest that a few additional items be added to the children's menu in order to accommodate kids who want more than nuggets and burgers. I had a special entree, monk fish, which was prepared very well. Service began on an excellent level and then sort of petered out--although the dining room was not too busy, we had a serious lag when the entrees were finished--we did not have time to finish the dessert course. Very good service, but not as attentive throughout as I'd have liked. All told, though, I would return and would recommend the restaurant to others.

Business at Open Terrace
This was a GREAT choice for me to meet a perspective client. Very professional and polished wait staff and great food. The surroundings were just great. I'll do more business there.

Nice Holiday Lunch
The restaurant was a wonderful and my co-worker and I enjoyed a wonderful holiday lunch. We were not rushed, and were able to enjoy a couple bottles of wine until we were ready to go. That was wonderful...
