These tart apple varieties complement the sweetness of the aromatic baking spices and together remind us of the cooler weather, beautiful foliage, and apples that are so plentiful this time of year. 7% ABV - Spring Garden, PA

                      We went at about 815 and there was only 1 or 2 other tables with people. They seated us right away, took our order and brought our drinks. Then the staff was no where to be seen for about 30 minutes. Finally, a waitress come over and tell us the kitchen staff is missing and she doesn’t know where they are. So said she was going to call them. After a while she came back and said she couldn’t find them. I asked if they could accommodate us in the other restaurant in the hotel and she called but they said no. She recommended a Mexican restaurant a few blocks away and we were starving so we went there. After eating there I came back to pick up my car at the hotel valet and they tried to charge me $25 since I didn’t eat at the hotel. He was very rude. I told them that I had tried to eat at the restaurant but they totally screwed up and demanded my car with no fee. He reluctantly complied.

                      We didn’t understand why we needed a reservation because the place was empty. The service was terrible. We are upstairs for an appetizer and drinks then downstairs for jazz and both places our servers were no place to be found despite the resistant being nearly empty. Attractive venue though. These are hotel bars.

                      Like most restaurants it was badly understaffed but high praise to the one server on staff, who was definitely giving it her all. The food was good, though not great. The space is cool and appropriate for the neighborhood. Hopefully they can overcome the staffing issues and continue to strengthen the menu. Parking is limited, and turning left out of the lot is a modest challenge. We will go again when the occasion arises.

                      We got seated at the worst table (thinking that they were closing we didn’t complain). 25 min later we got served water. 5 min later we were asked for drinks, we didn’t have time to ask for food. 20 min later we got the drinks and could ask for food. 30 min later we got our food (after another table that arrived later than us). But we didn’t got all our food. We waited, nobody was coming to even say “how’s your food”. And when they came, 20 min later, we told them about the missing food. It was back at the kitchen (now closed) waiting, almost cold. Horrible service honestly. And we cannot blame the people, there were just two for serving drinks and the tables. We won’t go in the future, that’s for sure. What a silly way of ruining someone’s night.

                      Since the kids are grown, my gf and I want to try new places to eat in the city. I figured we’d give Brick Shop a try since I’d read about it on Facebook. We had a nice time, and the food was good. We were a little confused by the food names and there wasn’t a large menu, but we just wanted to try whatever sounded good to us. It was all very nice, making reservations was easy, and we had a nice dinner out together. The waitress was very nice also, and attentive despite her also being one of the bartenders (and making some pretty complex cocktails from what we could see). We will be coming back to try other items sometime soon!

                      Didn't eat here, but the drinks were very good. It's a rather noisy place, especially on jazz night, but worth a visit, for sure. The hotel rooftop bar is also really nice.

                      Service during our meal was horrible. They did not bring the appetizers that we ordered, and when we alerted our server to this when the entrées arrived they didn’t care. Menu is still limited, and the food is just OK. This is a nice space in a nice hotel, but they have to go along way towards improving this restaurant. At this juncture, I recommend staying away

                      My son and I had an amazing time at the Brick Shop last night. There is a great energy level there. The wine, beer and drink options were extensive and high quality. The range menu items with a Mediterranean influence was excellent for sharing. Hearing Roger Humphries jazz ensemble was such a treat after a year of no live music. The entire experience was perfect.

                      Wonderful food, drinks, live jazz and ambiance. Scott the manager was a delight to talk to and kept us entertained. Will definitely be making this my go-to spot this summer.

                      The service was extremely slow and frustrating. We were 10 minutes late for our reservation but called down to inform them. Then it took 30 minutes from their before we even had a cocktail let alone any food orders placed. Disappointing situation with parking/valet and lack of communication and alignment from the Tryp team on what was included in our package, too. Did not feel treated like a guest.

                      We went for the jazz night and it was overall an excellent experience. The staff, food, music and ambiance just all around great. We ordered the arancini , poutine and the churros and it was SO good and very filling. We also had the wine flight that was a semi blind tasting which was a fun way of trying the wines. Will definitely be coming back!

                      We sat down around 9pm on a Saturday. Ordered drinks which took about 20 minutes to show up. Then nobody came by our table for almost an hour. We finally flagged somebody down to put in our food order and they told us the kitchen closed at 10. We explained nobody was servicing our table and the waiter didn't really seem to care. We asked for our check which took another 15 minutes to be brought out and we could see the waiter socializing with his coworkers and not preparing our check. Long story short we never got any food here and the service was by far the worst I've ever experienced in Pittsburgh.

                      Very loud with a band playing. To loud for the space. Host was not attentive. Waited 15 minutes for a waiter to come help. He apologized when finally at table. Would not recommend!

                      This was our second meal here. We ate here when they first opened and while the food was good, the service was not. Figured we would give them a coupe months to work things out. Service during our recent meal wasn't any better though. Long waits, inattentive, and server either forgot to put in part of our order or the kitchen forgot to make some things. Either way, we had to ask about these when they never arrived. Which is also when we were told that they were out of one item. Food was ok, but served lukewarm. We did send one item back because it was pretty bad. Although not terribly busy, they seemed a bit understaffed which probably didn't help. Our server did acknowledge the missteps and comped our sides and desserts, which was much appreciated. Hopefully they get it together.

                      The food was different from what you’ll find in most restaurants with their Eastern European/ Jewish and modern take on the cuisine. We enjoyed our drinks and dinner very much but the noise level made it quite challenging to hold a conversation.

                      Met friends for dinner- was quiet at 7 pm but got louder as more people arrived- that’s my only negative. Staff was very helpful to us in making our selections and provided great service. Highly recommend the Khachapuri- yummy and unusual. Brick chicken , cod and steak entrees were excellent. We enjoyed everything and look forward to nice weather when we can finish the evening with a drink at Over Eden on the rooftop deck!

                      Super yummy food served at the right portion size. I appreciated the careful attention to vegetarian options and the overall uniqueness of the menu construction. Not cheap but certainly not overly prices either. Our server explained how the restaurants aesthetic aligns with the history of the building as a trade school for laying brick, with certainly added to the overall experience. We will definitely be back.

                      The noise level in both the Brick Shop and Overeden were overwhelming. The atmosphere was nice, but it was too loud to talk. The ceilings need sound baffles. Also, the selection of drinks was disappointing. No luck looking for a nice digestif or port for after dinner. The food was very good and service was great.

                      The $10 charge for valet parking was not disclosed on the website and, as a result, was an unpleasant surprise. With all of the competition among restaurants in Pittsburgh, this puts Brick Shop at a disadvantage. That is demonstrated by the fact that, at 8:30pm on a Saturday evening, there were only six diners in the space and by 9:30, there were only two. It's difficult to keep good servers when the tip count is so low on account of no diners. That only compounds the problems, such as the lighted sign of the Rite-Aid across the street shining in through the windows to the below street level restaurant space. That doesn't add much to the atmosphere. With all that said, the food was good. So, management should make some decisions to be able to stay in business. Thank you.

                      Enjoyed our New Years Eve dinner. Did not know, however, that it was a $75 prix fixe menu, so we were disappointed that we could not order from the menu (we love the chicken), and felt that it was a little pricey. We were also disappointed that they were out of lemon sorbet.
