    First review of Belvedere, where there service was lacking, in knowledge of the menu, course timing, Cosmos were mor fruit punch than packing a punch. Food is usually noteworthy, but so ordinary in taste, and presentation, lackluster evening for sure.

    Decor has been updated tastefully and in keeping with the age of the inn. Holiday ambiance is as delightful as always making the experience a have-to for the holidays even if it's the only yearly visit. Our server adjusted perfectly to our needs by being attentive, but not overbearing. We were left to catch up over cocktails and our meal as early-to-arrive and late-to-leave diners. Food, again as always, was delicious and presented attractively. Only one suggestion: the filet was overcooked for Pittsburgh rare....center of the filet was medium rather than rare.

    Excellent service-attentive and personal but not intrusive. Tasty mussels, wild game duo and bread pudding. Tuesday night was a delightful night to visit. The restaurant was low key but full and the pace was totally ours to set.

    Hate to say it but Belvedere dropped the ball on this one. We have been there before so we hope its an outlier but we had a very arrogant waiter that didn't deliver. The chicken chili was nothing but broth, even the signature Lobster Bisque which is usually a hit was only average. Other than that my scallops were perfect but a couple of our other guests were just mildly impressed with their food. Nothing was outstanding which we expect at Belvedere. In fact the waiter got in a 'discussion' with one of our guests saying he didn't order the tacos but had ordered something else. If you are going to brag about how wonderful you are you better deliver and he just didn't.

    We had the Thanksgiving Turkey Menu and it was excellent. Everything was cooked to perfection and our waitress was superb. Lyndsey was as gracious a host as anyone could hope for. This was our first time and we are still scratching our heads as to why we waited so long! We will definitely be back. The interior is beautifully decorated for the holidays and this is a beautiful building.

    Overall great experience. However, did not like the hostess continuously coming near our table monitoring with her pen and tablet. Made us feel rushed and was a bit annoying. Also the waiter was good but sounded irritated at times when we asked for something. First I ever experienced this at Belvedere.

    Went here for our anniversary dinner and they had a special card on the table for us. Our waiter Jimmy was so funny and great! Would highly recommend requesting him! We ordered two appetizers and he waited to place our entree orders until we were finished with the apps. This way we didn’t feel rushed or have too much food in front of us. It was great to just eat at our own pace without being overwhelmed with all the food. HIGHLY recommend the bread from the appetizer menu. Best bread I’ve ever had!!! Beautiful inside with the decor and old charm. Will definitely come back again!

    This was our first visit to the Belvedere. We were seated promptly upstairs, and our server was also the bartender. He was hustling the whole time bouncing from table to table, was courteous and our drinks were good. We had 4 courses - calamari, soup of the day and lobster bisque, chicken piccata and the salmon, followed by the flourless chocolate cake and creme brulee. The only thing that was bad and left uneaten was the lobster bisque. Our server never asked how it was or why it went uneaten, but the rest of his service was great. The place is dated but a solid 3.5/5.
