The food was good but not great and we felt it was overpriced. The atmosphere was elegant and the seating was comfortable. The service seemed slow at times. We were going to a show and although we thought we were leaving plenty of time, we barely got out in time to make it. Restrooms are located on the floor above. Although there is an elevator, this seemed rather inconvenient.

Perfect place to eat if you're also going to see a show at either Heinz Hall or the Benedum. Valet parking makes it easy to park, eat and enjoy your evening. Food was delicious. I had the salmon and my husband had the scallops. Would highly recommend either entree.

I was visiting from out of town and was very glad we found Braddocks! The scallops were the best I have ever had. Service was attentive without being intrusive. The menu seemed to be updated seasonally. Would return when I am back in the Pittsburgh area.

We booked a table for 4 pm. It was our anniversary.....when we arrived, no one was in the restaurant. We were promptly seated and our waiter came over to assist us. He started by saying that the menu is about to change so there was little he could tell us about the food...which we found odd. Anyway we ordered the fried mac and cheese balls to start...they were quite tasty. My wife ordered the pork tenderloin and I ordered the beef short rib. My rib appeared, a hefty portion for sure...sort of like beef stew, without the stew. Unfortunately, the food had virtually no flavor, so after a few dashes of salt and pepper I tucked in. Overall, it was nice, but not really worth the $80 bill (we each had a drink too). As we were the only ones in the place the ambiance was a bit empty...cold in fact.

This is my third visit and it was just okay. I keep wanting it to be better than it actually is. The meat charcuterie appetizer looked like it could have come from Costco; the drinks were fine but pricey. The lobster gnocchi was just okay. Service was fine, ambiance comfortable. But for the money I don't really think it's worth it.

We've been going to Braddock's for several years and always found it acceptable, sometimes great. The rehab a few years ago, adding more booths, was an upgrade. But lately the prices have gone up to a point I am reluctant to pay. Salads are approaching $10, appetizers are all over $10 and main courses are mostly in the $30+ range. The food is very good, but not knock-you-socks-off great which is what I expect for those prices. Our server said their is a new chef in the kitchen who plans a complete redo of the menu. So I'll try it once more to see how he changes things.

We were in the city celebrating a birthday and stayed at the hotel. This restaurant is located inside the Renaissance Hotel and that made it so convenient to have a nice dinner before heading to the theater. Our meals were tasty and the service was very good. They offered a free birthday dessert, but since I'm unable to eat desserts with my dietary restrictions, they gave me a free glass of wine! We had eaten here before with a friend who is vegetarian and she was able to find something on the menu that she enjoyed.

Not the run of the mill Pgh. restaurant. There are some creative dishes, i.e. pork duo, beet goat cheese salad and others. The sweet potato hash is outstanding. The service is attentive and cheerful and the food is reasonably priced.

The wine list needs updated. The 2006 Chateauneuf-du-Pape ended up being the 2014 Cotes du Rhone and a 2013 Napa Cabernet came out as a 2015 California Cabernet; only the wineries were the same. I felt the price mark-up for wine by the bottle or glass is too high. For example, $16 for a glass of wine that sells retail in PA at $19 or $88 for a bottle that retails at $29.

The atmosphere is very good and it close to cultural district events and parking lots. I would return here for dinner.

The service was just terrible. We sat for 20 mins before our drink order was taken. I had to practically body tackle the waiter to get him to stop and offer refills. Even catching his eye didn’t work. He would just keep on moving. Our glasses stood empty half the time.

The food was mediocre, at best, and thoroughly disappointing, at worst. The duo of pork looked like it was tossed on the plate by a prison cook. The portions were unacceptable for the price.

The cocktails were okay. Overpriced, but not outrageously so.

We won’t be back. There are far better options closeby.
