Our waiter was not very involved. She would come to the table for 10 seconds, quickly ask what we want and then walk away. We had to practically yell our order to her as she walked away. She did not come to check to see if we were alright or needed anything. Also, the food was subpar. We could have gotten much better food for the same price elsewhere. Overall, disappointed in this experience.
This was an awful experience. I should have known it was going to be a tough meal as the omelettte chef cleaned a table for us. We had a reservation. We opted for the a la carte menu instead of the buffet. The buffet was scarce and did not look appealing. Our server took a while to come over. She was barely around during the meal. She served us food that was cold, stale and crusted over. I asked for the manager and then the serve asked if something was wrong. I said “the food.” The manager came over and told me our food had been forgotten and was served after sitting there for quite some time. She was full of excuses. Truthfully, it was apparent they hoped we would not say anything. To the managers credit, she did comp the entire meal and offered fruit. I can not believe they served food that was in that condition. It was appalling. I would never return to the restaurant nor would I recommend it to anyone. It is in a Renaissance hotel so I certainly expected better. What a shame.
Food was decent and actual table service was excellent. HOWEVER, the hostess and reservation process was the absolute worst in every way. We showed up at 725 for a 730 Rez. Waited 10 full minutes for the hostess to even show up at the hostess stand. She checked us in and told us to wait. Fully 50% of the tables were empty at this point No estimate on time, but considering it was already 5 min past our reservation when she acknowledged as (and 10 min after our arrival), we figured it would be quick. It wasn’t. After 20 min of watching her wonder aimlessly around the restaurant and playing on the computer, we asked the status. You would have thought I asked her to help me move or drive me to the airport given her attitude. She said it would be a wait and to be patient. Another 10 min went by and someone else (perhaps the Manager?) sat us. So finally sat at 8:03 for a 730 reservation after waiting 38 minutes. Again, in fairness to the wait staff, they were excellent. But I have never seen a hostess ruin a dining experience before but that’s what happened. Amazing.
Our meals, service and overall atmosphere where very good. We had to wait 30 minutes for our reservation as the meals were really coming out slow.
Made reservations to have dinner before the ballet. Valet parked. Waitress first asked if she could validate parking card for free parking ! We Had hog pork shank and fettucine with shrimp and shared a wedge salad. Dessert was a cookie/brownie. All delicious. The pork was fall off the bone tender. The fettuccine had a delicious light Alfredo. The chocolate brownie was soft and warm and oh so good. Waitress was attentive and gave very good recommendations. Will definitely return.
Slowwwwwwwwwww and inattentive service. Food was underwhelming.
Very good cocktail, excellent meat/cheese plate, entrees were both tasty. Service was very slow but pleasant. Slowness wasn’t a problem for this date, but if we’d had theater plans, we’d have been in trouble!
food and service good--close to the byham and convenient
Valentine's Day menu was great, especially duck confirm.
The food was very good.
Good was good, restaurant was busy but wait was fine. The alcohol menu sad totally opaque with a lengthy selection but no pricing and the wait staff was not able to tell us the price of given selections without showing to a manager. Also good was fairly priced but drinks (wine) was pricey at 13 to 17 a glass for house red.
The atmosphere was very pleasant for our group of six. And the food was quite good except it took a very long time and although my plate was warm my fish was not very hot. We didn’t get our food for over an hour and finally asked for bread We have been more pleased with the service on past meals.
We are happy that you take reservations though and will come back.
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere! Would definitely go back.
This place is a good option, especially if going to the Byham. We've been here several times. The smoked Manhattan is pricey, but fantastic! Wines overpriced. Had panko encrusted calamari for appetizer--way too heavy on the breading, not at all like that on tempura. I had the beet & goat cheese salad, with the addition of salmon that I ordered raw, but which came grilled. Didn't bother to send it back as we were a bit pressed for time, and it was good. My partner got the hanger steak, which was excellent. Our waitress (Autumn) was handling a bunch of tables (apparently the other staff didn't show up) but did so with courtesy and aplomb--she went out of her way to make sure we got an espresso when we were in a rush to leave. Kudos to her!
Food seevice atmosphere all fine. Overpriced though and it is mispriced on internet as less than 30 and its really not. Main dishes are 25 and up and wine by glass is ridiculously overpriced for the pour. Maybe the bar HH is better
This was our third time here. Food and service are always good. Very convenient before an event at Heinz Hall or Benedum Center.
Going to dinner before the theater with family and a friend. Service was excellent t. I ordered the Bison Burger off the bar menu and it was delicious. Tried the fried green tomatoes as the appetizer, it was good, could have been a little crispier but still good. Service was quick and efficient. Will definitely go back.
There are several interesting menu options. I would like to return and try some more. The service was exceptional. The only draw back is that the restrooms are located on the second floor.
Our server Jim was so pleasant. The menu has been freshened up since the last we were there. Bravo. The Saturday and Sunday brunch is over the top. Michael and Mark absolutely the best bartenders. I feel like I am always welcomed and accommodated. Convenient location.
The brunch buffet is awesome! Who doesn't love a good Bloody Mary bar, chefs preparing eggs and homemade pierogies?? The staff was wonderful and it was such a great place to hang out. The hotel is beautiful and the restaurant is amazing!
I was disappointed in the cost compared to the average food flavor and taste. Steaks were good but scallops were so so.
Menu had some interesting items. Execution wasn't great. Hanger steak was not sliced properly, with grain instead of against, scallops and risotto were bland, spinach tasted old and looked like frozen spinach reheated. recommendation would be to sit a bar and try a sandwich
Service was atrocious. Entrees never arrived after one hour after sitting down. Waiter was surprised when we stood up to leave. He never checked. Ceaser salad was boring.
The food was good and fairly priced however our service was terrible. 6pm on a Friday night, we had to ask for water, bread, what the specials were, never offered us a 2nd drink and the waiter put in our order of fried zucchini as fried green tomatoes. When I asked him where the tomato basil sauce was that went with the friend zucchini he just mumbled something and walked away. This restaurant is not that big, and he was not the only waiter working, so I'm not sure what the problem was. Also there was another person running all the food so we literally only saw our waiter a few times. I'm sure it would have been a much better experience if we had a better server.
Terrible. Mediocre meat and cheese appetizer. Seats located at the entrance which gave us a blast of cold air every time the hotel doors opened. Did not have time to eat our main course (salads) because we had theater tickets. Our reservation was for 6:00 we ordered around 6:15 and still not had received our salads by 7:05. The manager did not charge us for our drinks and appetizer, but I would not eat there again.
Our dessert was cheesecake with berries. ........it was delicious!!!!!
I had the filet which was tasty. The fish and chips was good but the portion size was small.
Our waiter was fabulous. Knew the menu and made worthwhile suggestions. The menu offered a good variety of basic American cuisine. My ribeye was very tender. Fish and chips was also quite tasty. Excellent squid appetizer and dessert was a very nice berry cheesecake. Just enough food. The location in the renaissance hotel was a treat. There was live music and happy hour fair available which gave us a perfect spot to hang out before going to the theatre
I have never had a bad meal at Braddock’s. Though quite busy, service was good. Usually visit for matinee meal, surprised at the activity in the lobby, but glad to see. Overall, very nice experience and look forward to returning for another excellent meal.
I didn't realize that this restaurant was in the Renaissance Hotel when I made the reservation. I was skeptical that it would be that good. We went on a Thursday night before going to Hamilton. There were not very many people in the restaurant so the noise level was low; very easy to have a conversation. It's very open so if it was crowded I would imagine that it could get loud. The food was good but not great. Service was great but again, it wasn't crowded so I expected nothing less than great service. Overall I was happy with the experience but probably wouldn't go again because there are too many other restaurants to try. If you are a whiskey drinker then you will love their large selection of whiskeys.
It was a great dinner venue prior to a show at the Benedum.
HAVE KNOWN THE MANAGER " TONY " FOR QUITE A WHILE...HE IS A AWESOME GUY AND LOOKED OUT FOR US....TABLE OF " 10 " AND THE SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD . HALF OF US HAD THE " FILET " AND WE ALL ENJOYED IT....THE OTHERS HAD FRESH SEAFOOD...THE CLEANED THIER PLATES. THIS HISTORIC HOTEL IS ALWAYS FUN TO VISIT . WE DO REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN THE NIGHTCLUB HEAVEN WAS IN THE LOBBY....VERY COOL PLACE AND FUN. WE WILL RETURN OFTEN TO SEE " TONY " AND HIS TEAM....
The service was gracious and the dining was excellent! I forgot how much I ♥️the food!
Great service and delicious food!
Visited to enjoy their options for Pittsburgh Restaurant Week. Only two of the four options were available. Disappointing.
The service was quite slow for example, we had to ask for bread when tables around us who came in after we came in got theirs. It was particularly annoying because we were going to a show and we had little time to spare. And for the quality of the food and the service, it was not a good value. Would definitely not book again.
We showed up for our reservation and were told they close in 15 min. We were then told we could sit in the bar however, with two children under the age of 12 I did not think that was acceptable. My husband and I have not only stayed at this hotel but utilized the restaurant and bar on many occasions.
Our waiter was amazing considering the issue of time and the food was just as good.
I will say they need to change the reservation times for this restaurant. It’s unacceptable to think all parties are will to down play a special meal.
Great brunch before a show at the Benedum. Staff was great and so was food. Never knew this was in the hotel and it was a pleasant surprise.
The food was mediocre at best and the service was extremely forgetful. He forgot multiple items we ordered. And we were seated near the kitchen and the servers kept leaving the kitchen door open, making things extremely loud throughout the meal.
Menu choices were very appealing. Presentation and taste were good. Everyone was happy with their meal
We were staying at the Renaissance and were in need of dinner and didn’t want to brave the cold and snow. I was impressed by the menu and also the extensive whisky and scotch selections. The entrees were healthy portions, our sever was very good an we enjoyed our experience. It helped we arrived right after the crowd left to go to the theater.
