Braddock's American Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
We had a fabulous meal of short ribs and seafood pasta tonight before going to the theatre. Loved the food and the service. Staff was fantastic, especially our waitress Michelle. Even the chef came out to chat. Kudos to dessert as well, which we scarfed down the decadently delicious bread pudding with ice cream, walnuts, bananas and whiskey sauce. Portions are large. Fab. Very attractive decor. Even the valet, David D was very friendly and helpful. Top night!
The hotel and restaurant are in a historic building, which is gorgeous. It’s right across the river from PNC Park, which is a very convenient location. The waitress was very kind and ensured that all of our needs were met. The food was good across the board, not amazing, but definitely good. The price was fair considering the ambience and the location. I would go back, but with all of the great restaurants in Pittsburgh, I don’t think that I’ll rush back anytime soon.
everything was nice, but all employees (Hosts, Waiters/Waitresses, Bussers) dress code was a bit off for me. Not that it's a huge deal, but was there for New Years (a big night for business) and it seems to be a fancier restaurant. The bussers were in black button up shirts (appropriate), hosts has jeans with button up flannel type shirts tucked in (decently appropriate), but the waiters and waitresses threw me off. Ours was wearing a Pink Troy polamalu jersey, while others had ugly steeler sweaters (Should mention how the steelers players earlier that day). Need some consistency there. Also, the menu should be a bit more proper. The menu was a flimsy piece of paper.
Overall though, it was good.
Stayed at the Renaissance Hotel for the New Year's Weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay thanks in part to the wonderful atmosphere created and the food served at Braddock's Brassiere.
We had reservations (I definitely recommend you do reserve a table), and were seated promptly upon arrival. Drinks were ordered and served while we studied the varied menu. Our waitress was exceptional, especially so considering the New Year's eve crowd, as were our dinner selections. We never felt rushed and, all in all, A home run!
We came for Sunday Brunch. The weather was frigid and the restaurant was much too cold also. Although our table waiter and the omelette/waffle station chef were excellent, there were some issues. It was difficult to find plates, the french toast came as we were finished, and we helped ourselves to a second cup of coffee. The $$ we spent on this Sunday brunch wasn't equal to other brunch spots that had more choices and cost only a bit more. We won't be coming back due to the minimal choices and cost of the food. We used to come often for brunches, the price was less ($15) and the food was excellent even though choices were few. Thing have changed here! Sorry.
Every year, my husband and I try to find a really good meal to enjoy with his nephew in Pittsburgh on Christmas Day. Next year, that search will be a lot easier - we'll just go back to Braddock's!
We had an amazing dinner at Braddock's on Christmas Day, 2017. The food was outstanding, particularly the Berkshire Pork Duo. Wow, the pork belly was to die for! We also enjoyed the scallops with corn risotto, and the duck with veggie risotto and blackberry sauce, all selected with help from our waiter Gabriel. But the real highlight of the evening was the cocktails, and the personal tour of the whiskey list provided by manager Tony Gualtieri. We'd run into some confusion over one of our bourbon selections, and he stopped by our table to offer a couple special tastes, and guide us toward the truly lovely Wild Turkey Decades.
We had such a great dinner - and we're looking forward to returning to Braddock's in 2018!
The service is consistently good and the atmosphere very pleasant. The food is always good. Some dishes definitely better than others, but nothing I've had there has ever been bad. My only complaint this time was for some odd reason the restaurant smelled fishy. So it put us off ordering anything with fish/seafood. It's never been like that before. I also thought the cheese plate was mediocre for the price. But the entrees were very good.
Several food items were not well seasoned. Fried Mac n cini was bland. Steak and frites steak was perfectly cooked but lacked flavor. Tomato soup was excellent and mussels were good. Pork two ways was inconsistently seasoned. Pricey for the quality. Service started slow but was soon very good.
We were taking in a show at Heinz Hall. This was one of the few restaurants close to there that accepts reservations, which I wanted since it could be crowded after a performance. I have food allergies and the waitress spoke to the chef about accommodations. The waitress was very friendly and was happy to help. The food was delicious, and different than most places are able to offer with dairy restrictions! All in our party loved their meal and the great service. There was a Steeler game, so there was some noise from the lobby (we were seated close to the door). With the lobby doors open, it was a bit drafty. Two of us kept our coats on. I'm sure it was due to the home game. I will return again when we are in the theater district!
Food was great. The waiter was great. The atmosphere was horrible. It is in a hotel and apparently the breakfast is given to patrons at no cost. People were in slippers and in large groups that were loud and moving around. They placed us in the middle of the restaurant next to the "get it yourself" coffee, and the entire morning I had someone's backside in my face.
We had a lovely time and a great meal at the Braddock Brasserie before going next door to the Byham Theater. The food was fabulous, but the kitchen was slow in getting our meals out, and we ended up having to rush to make the 8:00 curtain. Our server was wonderful but the kitchen let her down. One other thing: I tried hard to get the attention of the Valet parking guys, to no avail. I ended up having to park far away and walk in. I was not happy about that because I had chosen the restaurant specifically to use the valet parking for an elderly relative who does not walk well.
There have been some reviews that made us hesitant to try this place out, but we overcame those hesitations and wanted to get away from our normal listing of places to eat. For the most part, people dressed a little more upscale than I was expecting. Even in a casual dress and heels I felt a tad bit underdressed for a place that claims casual attire is okay. Our table had a few if the appetizers, including the beef tartar, pierogies, kielbasa board, and frites. Everything was delicious. Well done, perfectly cooked. Because we are the appetizer menu, we split the gnocchi and lobster. The lobster was perfect in every way. The gnocchi was slightly charred from the pan fry but still amazingly well done.
My only complaint is the drink menu was not extensive (they are going for a bourbon whiskey theme...and not a favorite for my tastebuds...i wanted some different offerings and for the crowd that was in the restaurant. I was hoping a larger wine or spirits menu...they do have a full bar though). Also, the noise from the libby can be obscene. They either should shut the dining area doors or something.
The service was good. Our waitress was busy and spread thin but she still took care of us.
All in all...it is worth a shot. It is a good restaurant, and I look forward to another visit in the near future.
The potato gnocchi and lobster was excellent. I ordered the small portion and still had to have the leftovers wrapped. Our family ordered the cheese plate- unique and tasty. Vegetarian daughter had the seasonal squash- which she enjoyed ( not very many veg options, though). Definitely plan at least an hour if you are going to the theater - service was attentive, friendly, informative, but the food came a little slowly.
My wife and I made reservations for an upscale dinner before a show at the Byham. The menu looked great. Nice selection of wine, cocktails, and local beers, as well. But the food itself was inedible. My wife and I never leave food on our plates, but we walked away with half of the food still on the table. The mussels were sizeable, but varied in doneness (some were cooked, others were quite undercooked - all tasted "fishy"). The cheese plate was poor - most of which we didn't finish because they simply weren't good. And more importantly, the server didn't even tell us what everything on the plate was (cheeses, sauces, etc.). Extremely disappointed in the experience. Not all meals are good, and obviously you take a risk when trying something new. But at a place as nice (and as expensive) as this, I would expect the food to at least be decent.
In a food landscape that is rich, creative and inspired, Braddocks ranks as average. Typical fare, good service, pricey because it is in a hotel and downtown. If you are seeing a show and want a convenient location, this is it. If you are dining out for any other reason, there is better food (our dishes were all served incorrect with missing ingredients and overcooked) at many places in Pittsburgh. The bright spot in the place is there are great servers and the ambiance is ok.
This years Thanksgiving 2017 meal was horrible. The food had absolutely zero taste. Almost like dining at a nursing home. I dined here for Thanksgiving of 2016 and it was fantastic! The food was well prepared and very flavorful. Each table also received their own turkey with leftovers to take home after dinner. I only returned this year because my experience in past was so amazing. Looks like it will be the Capital Grill for Thanksgiving 2018.
