A word from Sonoma Grille Pittsburgh
A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine- 'Brillat Savarin'. Sonoma is a restaurant that is eclectic yet approachable, where food and wine are uniquely prepared side by side.

  • "We were visiting Pittsburgh and looked for a dinner spot through Open Table. Sonoma was a great find. The food and service was excellent. We had some very unusual and memorable selections for dinner and would say our experience was exceptional."

  • "This was my second time here. The first time I just came for drinks. This time we came for dinner. Everything was very good and the service was great. They have a very extensive wine list by the bottle and also by the glass which is very nice. Would come here again."

  • "We had a great dinner at Sonoma Grille. Trusted our server and had the mixed grill selections (filet kabob, salmon and shrimp tempura). One of us had the veggies and two had the fettucine sides and both were great. It was memorably good. Service was great. Would defitely go again when we are back in Pittsburgh."

  • "Had a wonderful meal before a concert at the Benedum Center. The salmon and stir-fried veggies were wonderful, and the waitstaff was attentive to our timeline for getting out the door. Wine list is always wonderful. Ate at a high-top table in the bar area. Very fun!"

  • "Folks, this is a very good place to go just a block or two from the heart of the Pittsburgh Cultural District. Good menu with excellent wine list. All of the food was delicious and well prepared and unquestionably very fresh! This was my second visit, and my wife's first. Combination entrees gave you opportunites to choose 2 or 3 things, instead of settling for one. We both chose Filet Mignon & Salmon, which were absolutely delicious. Service was exceptional, with two individuals (waitress and also a second for wine choice and follow-up). The general manager also was very personal and stopped by at least twice to ask us our feedback regarding the mean & service. We look forward to a return trip in the near future."

  • "Our server's name was Joe. He was very engaging, knowledgeable and helpful. He made our dining experience even more enjoyable."

  • "I've been for dinner and the food was fantastic. Brunch was not fantastic. And for the price, I'd expect fantastic. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't worth it."

    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I chose to have soup and the apetizer plate (meant for 2) as my main course, as suggested by my server. It was a good choice. the seafood soup was excellent. The apetizers were very good - a little too salty on the scallops for me. All in all - good dining."

  • "We dined here before a show in the Theater District. Our Server was very thorough when he explained the menu and the special items and very conscious of our time frame for the theater. I am a fussy eater and not very good at trying new things so I had a bit of an issue finding something to eat but I did find "Mixed Grille" and it was excellent. My husband also enjoyed his dinner and it was prepared exactly as he requested. Our food was served promptly. The presentation was attractive and the taste was excellent. The server did make an error on our check but he discovered it and brought it to our attention and corrected it himself. We had a very nice dining experience."

  • "Personnel were friendly, service was good and my lunch of grilled salmon, with vegetables, and petit salad was excellent.....Thank you...."

  • "We had dinnner here with friends before a CLO show. Everyone enjoyed their meal selections and our waiter, Michael, was very good. My husband wanted their signature duck but wanted different sides which turned out to be no problem. The wines by the glass selection is excellent and it is nice to be able to try wines that you are not familiar with."

  • "Great meal and we got to participate in the United Mine Workers protest that came right by us. Interesting time. Food was much better than the protest."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "If you are going to the Sonoma Grille, have the duck, their signature dish. It is delicious. But the surroundings under the duck are not special and sort of tasteless. On my last visit there was a farewell gathering between the entrance and the dining area whcih lasted my entire meal. Do they have no group rooms? And my wait staff changed twice. Duck the Grille."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The food was good. The wine list was large. Very "California" type food. Nice location, very close to convention center. The hostess was a little rude. She asked if we had a reservation and then said she would go check on our table. A few minutes later she asked if we had a reservation and said she would go check on our table (apparently not remembering having already gone through that routine)."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Our appetizers and entrees were delicious. Our server explained the menus and specials well but was inattentive during the meal. He never asked if we wanted another glass of wine or anything else to drink. I ordered the strawberry lemon tart which turned out to be mostly a saucy concoction that was mostly crust. The manager took it off the tab and gave me a gift certificate to return....a nice gesture although I told him we were from out of town and not likely to be back."

  • "I am always pleased to visit Sonoma Grille. Their food is high quality and well-prepared, and served creatively. I especially like the mixed grill offerings and the wine flights. The mint chocolate chip ice cream block with decadent chocolate sauce is a terrific dessert. The entire meal was great."

  • "The service was excellent , from the bar to the table. Food was wonderful We had the tapas appetizer to share which was delicious. The waitress was kind enough to let us know we could split our dinner. We chose the Duck which was absolutely perfect. Can't wait come back again."

  • "During this business lunch the service was unacceptably slow. After waiting 60 minutes our salads came without dressing and severely overcooked proteins."

  • "Service and food from the moment we walked in was up to the high standard to which we have become accustomed at this restaurant. We introduced a couple new to Pittsburgh to this excellence and there is no doubt they will be adding Sonoma at the top of their downtown list of restaurants."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • " food was as expected for a primarily supper restaurant, quiet, not crowded on a Saturday, with an extensive wine list and bar. The place is more lively in the pm. Beware, parking is expensive by Pittsburgh standards ."

  • "I took my boyfriend for his birthday. We ordered the tapas platter, which apparently the order got lost in the kitchen so it took about a half hour to get it; however, the server apologized and corrected the issue and brought us bread in the meantime. She handled it very well. The servers were excellently trained on the menu and made great recommendations, but two servers would sort of tag-team a table which i thought was strange. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for the quality of the food. When we ordered dessert, they wrote happy birthday on the plate with chocolate and gave the dessert on the house as a birthday gift to my boyfriend. I will definitely go back to Sonoma Grille."

  • "We had excellent service and the food was very good. Dessert was delicious but it was a little pricey. Would return for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Good food and service. Menu is a bit confusing but our waiter help us out and explained everything in detail. Tapas platter was a good choice and it is for two. Was not a fan of the bread and the butter did not have much flavor, although it is Sonoma's specialty."

  • "We have been to Sonoma Grille numerous times and have not been disappointed. Nice wine list, many offered by the glass. Friendly service. Focus is on fresh and flavorful ingredients. We were able to sit outside on a very pleasant afternoon."

  • "OMG 1st of all....my hubby HATES to go to places downtown. I had received a gift card for Sonoma and I planned on using this for our anniversary. Well all I can say, my hubby is totally SOLD on this place. We started off with a glass of wine. Then we both ordered the Chowder. It arrived in a bread bowl. O M G ! We have been to New England, and this chowder can definitely stand against any I have ever had before! My food was to die for! My hubby ordered lamb and I dont eat it. I did have a taste and I would have never believed it to be lamb at all! We were presented with 2 glasses of champagne for our anniversary on the house! We were both very pleased and cant wait to try Sunday brunch!"

  • "Sonoma Grille has a great wine list and is good for brunch, but lunch and dinner are a little disappointing for the price...except for a couple of exceptions. It's quiet and has great service. Good for quiet dinners but not if you're looking for a vibrant bar scene."
