Service was good, but food was over cooked and tasteless. Hard to mess up a ribeye, but they did. Over cooked and salty.

I had been at the Bigelow Grille many times over the years and never had a complaint. It was a long while since I had been there, so on our way to a Cher concert at PPG Arena, our group of ladies made a reservation there and we thoroughly enjoyed our time, our meals, and..... our FABulous cocktails (Blackberry and Champagne Sparklers and Margaritas )! The minute we walked in we were seated immediately and the weather was so nice we had to sit and relax outside on the patio. There was only occasional traffic noise which was even hard to hear as we were engrossed in our chit chat among us! We ordered the mac n cheese with chicken and several different types of flatbread pizzas - all of which were as good as the next! Our server was quick to give us our drinks and served our food hot and we had a lovely time! We will definitely be going back again and again! :)

There's nothing on the menu! All new comers have the same reaction: can I see the full menu? Thoroughly uninteresting.

Been to the grille several times prior to this night, food wasn't up to par on this night,perhaps it was a different cook. Chicken sandwich was very dry and hard too crunchy to enjoy. The mac and cheese was missing some chicken in my opinion.

New menu in last month after several years. Had some new items that were good, but got rid of tater tots, which we always loved. Service was very good and food quality fine.

The food was delicious, service was even better! The high top chairs in the dining area are impractical and should be replaced. A member of my party kept sliding off, couldn’t get comfortable, and almost fell.

Everything about the restaurant was good, with the exception of the menu. If you plan on visiting on an evening when there is a special event, such as a concert, you may want to double check the menu. We went before going to the Kiss concert and they only offered a very very limited menu. Even the regular menu is nowhere near what it used to be. The food was good, and the service was very good, yet it was still just a mediocre dining experience.

Food was good but a very limited menu.

We had a private room which worked great for our small group, but otherwise it would have been very noisy out at a regular table...

Menu online was much bigger than what we given to choose from on the Menu on site. Online was a selection of over 40 choices , it was shrunk to maybe 10 because there was a “new chef”, that’s false advertising to me , also very loud, food was good though! Wouldn’t reccomend until they got their menu together more , I had to get something I normally wouldn’t because of limited choices.

The food was not as good as we hoped u fortunately. Great location close to the arena however the prime rib was very fatty and no accompaniment with it and the crab cake was a single crab cake for the dinner. Was sadly disappointed.

The $15 “brunch” was what you would get at a Holiday Inn Express, oh but they did have a made-to-order station. In the “buffet line” were powdered eggs, cold sausages and bacon, terrible Danish, hard bread for toast.

The homeless lady sitting next to us who kept packing and repacking her bags simply added to the overall experience.

Oh, did I mention it was $15???

Not a good time.

Superb service, delicious entrees, and a comfortable setting. Very convenient for a pre-event meal scheduled for PPG Arena. Easy walking distance from PPG arena parking areas.

Appreciated seating in their “private” dining room.....grand kids thought that was extra special!

Thanks to our waiter who was friendly and welcoming.

First time visiting and our reservations were earlier in the evening before a concert. service was fast and very efficient. Food was done well with a good presentation. As we lingered, wasting time and chatting the place got busier and busier, however there was still plenty of seating and I noticed that no one waited long.

We booked this restaurant because it was one of the few who had openings in the afternoon prior to a concert. Open table offered the latest opening a 315pm, however most of the tables were still open when we left around 5pm. We ate at the bar, which was staffed by a member of the back office. There was a large wedding at the hotel, and thousands of people in town for a huge concert. The bar was packed, loud and totally understaffed. Drinks were painstakingly measured with a shot glass, one by one. One wonders who was in charge of the staffing schedule on such a busy day.
The menu is NOT vegetarian friendly. My selections was basically tomato soup and tater tots. They food was good, but not "dinner: The soup that my husband ordered was described as a beef/lamb veggie concoction, however it was pretty much vegetable soup. Not a single bit of beef.

I was here at the hotel all week for a conference. The salad was average, but good. The wait staff, although friendly and kind, either put my order into the system incorrectly or the chef didn’t see my simple modifications (dressing on the side, no croutons) They also missed two menu items on the salad: pine nuts and avocado. Very big bummer.
