The Terrace Room
Tasty Food, Pleasant AtmopsphereMenu offers a wide veriety, service is respectful of guests, chef is responsive to diner requests.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMClassical eleganceLocated 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.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to The TerraceWe 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!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMone of my all time favoriteone of my all time favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful 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."4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food , small portionsFood was very good , but portions were very small for the $$$$.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Terrace Room was greatThe 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.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMa lovely settingFour 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.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDining in the Terrace RoomDining in the Terrace Room was not just a meal.

In fact, our recent lunch did not cost us much more than a similar lunch at any number of less-elegant downtown restaurants.12/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
