    Booked this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday as he loves cigars and whiskey. We were told by our server we could go back to the cigar lounge after dinner. Once in the lounge, we were approached and asked to leave because they had a waiting list. Mind you, the couch where we sat was empty along with several other tables. Baffled, we waited at the concierge stand to inquire further but there was nobody there. Once in the car, I called and spoke to Dylan who advised they were at capacity and couldn't have anyone standing. Again, we were seated when asked to leave. Then, he said that's the policy I don't know what to tell you. We won't be returning. They handled this terribly. There was nobody waiting to get in. We wanted an after dinner cigar and a drink, no food. $250 meal ruined.

    Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious. My husband had the Cioppino and I had the Miso black bass (it was a special). I added the mushrooms that were incredible and my husband added the asparagus which was great and not dripping in butter or oil, so very healthy! Our server was great at answering all of our questions. Only complaint was that the tables for two were too close and you couldn’t help but hear your neighbors conversations.

    We enjoy the live music, cocktails, and ambiance at Cioppino. The service is excellent and very friendly. My husband loved the cigar bar in the back as well where we could watch the NFL game while we enjoyed our cocktails and he smoked his cigar. They do a very good job of keeping the cigar bar separate from the restaurant and regular bar so there is no smoke or smell at all.

    Olga was very pleasant. Presentation and serving of meals were well done. Both the Chilean sea bass and chicken entree’s were completely overpowered by salt. Crab cake and short rib dinners were excellent. Mushroom pappardalle just average. Enjoyed the dinner, but most likely would not return.

    We had a great time….. it wasn’t overly booked/packed…. Staff was excited and pleasant (even on nye) they accommodated a change in our reservation time just hours before our visit! Food was great- a bit over- priced but it is an upscale restaurant- our waitress was beautiful and gave great service! We ordered the steak special it was cooked perfectly! I will be returning for happy hour and entertainment in the summer!

    The food was excellent. Service was top notch. Glad to see that they now have valet parking. Unfortunately, were were seated next to the bar and there were a few patrons there that were VERY loud. Sometimes it was difficult for my husband and me to even hear each other. That's the only thing keeping me from giving the restaurant five stars.

    Our experience with dinner at Cioppino last evening was outstanding! The entrees were something that far exceeded expectations and a description doesn’t do them justice. I had the Chiliean Sea Bass Oscar which was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. My son had the Short Ribs which were so tender, no knife was necessary. He commented they were the best he has had…and he’s had a lot. The calamari appetizer and salads must be tried. Even though we had a to go bag, we shared the Tarte Tatin for dessert. It is not what normally you expect but the apples, pastry and fresh whipped cream was out of this world. No to go bag for that! Thank you to Jeff who took wonderful care of our dining experience so we understood the selections and thoroughly enjoyed without being rushed. And the Manager, Raj, is very friendly and is very present with the diners. I would request Jeff’s section for his knowledge and service. A very very good experience and I/we are looking forward to the next dinner there!

    We had a great experience at Cioppino, our waiter Lexie was awesome and provided spot on service. Food was excellent and we both enjoyed a dish of their namesake. I seldom cannot finish what is served to me. Last night was an exception as the portions were quite substantial. Quality and Presentation Outstanding!!!

    Had dinner there few months ago and was very average. Decided to give lunch a try for three people. Got the bartender as our server. He didn’t write our orders down which is always a bad sign and was a bit snarly. Ordered a salad with salmon specifically asking the temp to be medium well. Salmon came out rare. Don’t think we will ever go back.

    Cioppino is one of the finest restaurants in the Pittsburgh area and I would recommend it for anyone looking to class up their evening. The atmosphere is not pretentious like other fine-dining establishments, but you are still seated in elegance and will enjoy your time. I have never had a single bad meal here and the wait-staff and cooks will ensure that your meal goes according to your preference. My wife and I celebrated our wedding night here just the two of us and we recently came back for our first anniversary, even a year later, the quality and professionalism has not faltered one bit.

    Atmosphere was very nice. Very beautiful restaurant. Server was well trained, very polite and kind. For being a steakhouse, for some reason they gave me a medium steak which I wanted a medium rare, that was very disappointing. Secondly, we went to the bar after to listen to some music and the bartender was downright rude. We left that bar and went to another to spend our money. This would have easily been a five star had the service not dropped so quickly in the bar

    Our server was fantastic. The atmosphere was very comfortable. I wish the menu prices were better… a little high for the quality, in my opinion. Nice alcohol selection which made me desire that they offered a flight of 1oz. pours to sample. Too expensive for us to frequent.

    The food is creative but accessible, and generally light and tasty. The selection of dishes is perfect, something for every taste. The atmosphere is elegant, with a lovely view of downtown, and the waitstaff is attentive, friendly, and courteous. One of the best restaurant experiences I have had, here or in Europe! Impressive for a Pittsburgh venue--a touch of cosmopolitan in our own little town. And you can amble around the Strip District afterwards, to refresh after dinner.

    Dinner was very good, but scallops were sandy. Service was excellent. The sea bass was the best I have had in recent times. The sear on the sea bas was perfect. Service in the dining room as well as the cigar bar was excellent.
