The restaurant was closing down the next day and they had only a limited menu. This was not updated on the website. I have been to Habitat before, and went expecting a certain kind of menu and level of service. This visit didnt meet my expectations.

I've been here on a cooking class date, date with my fiancé and he recently went with a board member. We have given multiple chances for redemption but this place sucks. The food is not good. Nothing good to say about the place

Dishes were creative and very flavorful with wonderfully unexpected combinations of flavor and texture. Our server, Devon, coaxed us into trying dishes we might have otherwise overlooked - the fried eggs , stuff pepper "snacks." The halibut was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. Dessert, too, was exceptionally tasty and nicely presented. I'm sorry to be catching the restaurant just as it closes for redesign of decor and menu, but I'll look for its re-opening to see what chef Jean-Paul Lourdes has in store - I understand food will be available in the meantime in the lobby and at the restaurant/lounge of the Fairmont hotel.

Habitat has a new menu that was extremely difficult to find one thing that I would be willing to order. Also the prices were very high. I understand they are closing for the summer and reopening with a new restaurant. I hope they keep in mind that some Pittsburghers like "foody food" and some just want "normal" options. Many "foody food" restaurants have gone out of business here.

Unbelievable! Divine! Best buffet we have had. Well worth the price for Mother's Day! The day was honestly the best ever. The food for a buffet was not your typical fare. EVERY dish was memorable including dessert.The thing we loved the most was the tapas dishes in addition to the lamb and beef brisket. We were able to try things we normally would never have tried. Thank you Habitat for the best Mother's Day buffet ever. In fact, the best in my many years of trying different buffets. Last but not least, our server Jessie was very attentive and excellent.

Went for brunch with family. Food was good but not excellent which is what i would expect for the price. Service was poor... food brought before drinks and i was unable to order wine until food was about to arrive (i did not order at this point). There was no bartender and our waitress had to bartend which she admits did not know how to do and also admitted did not follow the recipe (drinks were not good btw)

Amazing place! I went for a special occasion. This place is on the more expensive side, but their local & organic ingredients and quality of service made it well worth it. I definitely recommend this place for foodies and people looking for fantastic cuisine and service.

Meal was delicious. Service was exceptional. This is a special occasion place. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Recommendations by our waiter were spot on. Pacing of meal was just right.

This was my first time back since they changed the menu. My meal was tasty but I really enjoyed the old menu. The food on the current menu doesn't give me a reason to come back anything soon. I always ordered the Naan bread as a appetizer to be shared and now it's gone.

The food and service were outstanding as was the ambiance. The dessert we ordered was probably the best we have ever had. The entrees serving size was sufficient and the dessert was more than enough to share.

Food was not bad but device was horrible. Waited 15 min for our drinks to come after we ordered. We're never offered bread although other tables had it. Learned the next day that it was wonder!

The menu is simplified and limited but the dishes are uniquely prepared. Presentation of the food, quality and taste were nice. It wasn't crowded on a weeknight. Service was with a smile but involved too many errors and delays and the server wasn't knowledgeable about the menu.

Habitat has always been good but now with a new chef it is getting even better. A bit pricey. Maybe that's why it doesn't get the crowd it deserves.

I was disappointed that the restaurant had changed their menu and it was not the one posted on line. I had had their express lunch in the past and while it was reflected on their web site, it was not offered. In fact, the menu was smaller due to their planned refurbishment. Otherwise, food was good.

Habitat never disappoints. Food is always fresh and tasty. Best of all is they understand and accommodate a gluten free diet.

Our waiter, Gary, had great suggestions and was just attentive enough. He was also very knowledgeable about the menu. Great cocktail and wine list. Was a lovely place to celebrate our anniversary...modern but romantic. Wonderful menu options, highly recommend the Naan appetizer with 3 different spreads. Both of our entrees were excellent, I had the duck and my husband had the rabbit confit dish. We were really surprised it wasn't more busy on a Saturday night at 8 pm!

I have always enjoyed Habitat and was a regular visitor. It is an important part of the Pittsburgh landscape.

Ate here before the ballet. Service was excellent. My daughter, the vegetarian , had a wonderful pumpkin soup and pasta. I had the duck- moist and extremely tasty.
