    The fish and chips were the best I’ve had in the city. There was a very talented young female musician. Very enjoyable evening. I only wish they would put Over Eden’s brussel sprouts on the menu.

    I love the vibe of this place! It's beautiful and quiet. However, I think the food could use some improvement. A lot of dishes were over-seasoned and one was to the point of inedible. Great place if you're feeling fancy and they have nice events on the weeknights like live music and trivia.

    The food was great and there was hardly any wait. The biggest issue was that there wasn’t a Singtel waiter in the restaurant. There was only a bar tender, who didn’t seem to be too happy about being the only staff. We had a reservation and had already looked at the menu, thankfully, because no menus were ever given to us. I had to go up to the bar to pay my bill, service was greatly lacking because there was no wait staff.

    My food was cold except for the salmon. There was one server for The whole restaurant. Noone checked after our food was delivered - my husband left most of his food and none asked why- my drink was never replenished. The live music was excellent food not so great. Server was pleasant but stretched way too thin!

    Our reservation was for 11/12/21 at 7:30. When we showed up the restaurant was closed and the chairs were turned up on its table. There was no host or anyone to talk to. We went upstairs to the top floor restaurant to see if there was some mistake and the hostess didn’t know why our reservation wasn’t canceled as they were aware of the closure. Essentially as we found out there needed to be a last minute closure, and all reservations were to be contacted however we never were. Wish I could say what the food was like because the menu sounds good but unfortunately this just left a sour taste in my mouth.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
