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.

  • "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)."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "While in "the Burg" this is a must do if you are into fresh farm to table. Pittsburgh only has a couple places with the opportunity to enjoy great food like Sonoma Grill. Conveniently near the theater district. The chef creates amazing entrees as well as sides. You gotta go."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The waiter was very knowledgable and personable. The food was amazing. The wine recommended was so smooth. The cheesecake was the best I have ever had."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food was amazing! We had the tapas for 2 appetizer and I don't think I could pick one that was the best because they were all that good! I really liked my wine and my rye crusted salmon was delicious. The service was spectacular as well!"

  • "Eric M did a great job in very busy conditions during the Jazz Crawl. Ambience was very pleasant--live jazz. Food is delicious and sustainably and locally sourced. Only negative--they need to update their website."

  • "Excellent menu, service and food. Not a place to go for quiet conversation . Noise level is high but great food overcomes all!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I really enjoyed the experience, and the food was great. I have to say that the speed of food delivery is slower than most restaurants. Some of us started to look at our watches, wondering what was taking so long. This is the second time I experienced it. And the restaurant wasn't crowded."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The food and service were fabulous! The staff are very helpful for those who have food allergies. They will modify just about any recipe to accommodate intolerance to gluten, etc. The food was innovative and every bite was delicious. Next time we're in Pittsburgh, we'll be back!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Came here after theater for dinner. Was quiet when we arrived, but as more people were seated, particularly the large table close to us, conversation across the table became difficult. Christie, our waitress, was excellent, checking with us every so often but not often enough to be intrusive. Menu, which we knew from the website, is limited compared to other restaurants in the cultural district. Food was OK butghtly overpriced considering ingredients and portion size. Nothing special enough about Sonoma to warrant returning on our next trip to Pittsburgh."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We all tried the mixed grille and were not disappointed, but I'd recommend the entree list instead for the best quality. Soup chef is amazing. Our waiter was excellent with wine suggestions and they even discounted our bottle of wine after they ran out of the bottle we requested."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The tapas for two appetizer was amazing as was the scallop entree! Jim was our waiter and had some great recommendations- both wine and food. Even the support wait staff were great. We will definitely be back:-)"

  • "I have been to Sonoma a number of times. We have consistently had good service; and consistently had good food. Live Music on Friday--was not expecting that. There were 4 of us for dinner on Friday. We ordered, soup, salads, apps, and for the entrees: Tenderloin, Venison, Duck, and Filet. The early courses were all very good. The Duck and the Filet were very much enjoyed as well. However, the Tenderloin and the Venison only received so-so reviews from the others in our party. We then finished the evening with dessert: the Trio and the Creme Brulee. The Trio was quite small, though very good. We didn't care much for the Brulee. Overall, we had a good dining experience."
