the service was outstanding, it's just that the food was not as great more like a high-quality bar food than a restaurant, definitely not worth the prices, won't be back again just because you can find better food at the same price range at other establishments. I would say they have a great collection of wines and whiskey

This was the second time that my wife and I visited Cioppino. We were warmly greeted and seated quickly. We asked for a high-top table that we were given however it was quite wobbly.
We were met quickly by our server Kimberly who was very nice. We both ordered the beet salad that we believe was underwhelming. Thin beets and apples with very few greens and a very small cubes of mild cheese.
My wife had the crab cakes and I the surf and turf. The crab in the cakes was reduced to very fine crab meal. According to my wife, not very good and she has crab cakes everywhere. Her fingerling potatoes and green beans were very good. My steak was very good as was my asparagus.
We shared the panacotta dessert that was pretty good.
Overall our service was very good however the food only average for the price.

This restaurant has a modern urban vibe but very comfortable. The food is great, service is attentive and efficient.
The menu features something for everyone: pasta, chicken, seafood, beef and I do believe there is a vegetarian entree. Don’t miss desserts! Excellent

Overall great experience! We decided to do appetizers and drinks in the lounge near the live Jazz for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. Everything was perfect, we had a bottle of Pinot, crab dip, calamari and lobster bisque. Small portions but we kind of assumed it would be so we ate dinner before our late night 815 reservation. Still was definitely worth it. The service was amazing and we will definitely be back.

Service and food was amazing! Staff went out of their way for our wedding anniversary. Short rib dinner was delicious as well as the butternut squash soup. Cocktails and whiskey list impressive. We tried several bourbons and unique scotches. We really enjoyed our evening.

First time eating at Cioppino's. They have a cigar bar attached to the restaurant but you would have never known. Our waiter was outstanding and when he found out we had tickets for a 7:30 show, he did not delay our check when asked. Food was wonderful. My son had their strip steak special prepared exactly to medium. Loved my crab cakes, not much bread in them at all. During a pause in the meal, the owner or manager stopped by the table to check in. I like that when a chef or manager/owner stops by during a break in your meal to check in. Let's you know they care about your experience and if there are problems, they get addressed without delay. Think upscale meal and pricing. Will be returning again.

I visited with two guests from Washington, DC who had been on the road for about 5 hours. Cioppino had the perfect ambiance for business-casual dress and a "laid back" feeling. For the most part, the food was excellent. I was disappointed with my beet salad (just slightly above average), but a companion's salad was enjoyed.
We were VERY happy with our entrees--sea bass with béarnaise sauce and Long Island duck breast. Everything on the plate was perfect.
We treated ourselves to the dessert sampler at the end of the meal, filled with tidbits of homemade cake, truffles, crème brulee, and candy.
It's also worth noting that the service was excellent. It was attentive without being hovering. We never felt rushed. The server was fully knowledgeable about every item on the menu.

We came for the first time and it was our anniversary. Our server came out with glasses of Prosecco and special menus. It was so nice and unexpected!! Our service was great. We loved the ambiance and the food was perfect. We headed over to the cigar bar after which was a perfect end to the evening. We will definitely be back!

Dinner overall was very good. Tried some different things on the menu we wouldn’t always get. Snapper special they had was very nice, sea bass is solid. Only downside, our octopus appetizer was slightly overcooked… but had nice flavor. Overall B+. Definitely worth a try

Wednesday night, so naturally quiet. Nice atmosphere and background music for relaxed conversation. Good vibe in restaurant. Don't know about bar area that is casual. Good menu and food good, but not spectacular (maybe junior kitchen staff on Wednesday night?) I had lamb which was tender and perfectly cooked and seasoned, but too much demi-glace which was put on the mushroom risotto that overpowered the risotto flavor; better to put it on the side or small dollop on the lamb. Lobster bisque was the color and consistency of refried bean side dish in a Mexican restaurant. Unexpected, and the lobster was a bit stringy. Meal and place was good enough for another try and final opinion. It is a good option for dining in the Pittsburgh Strip area.

The service and food were top-notch! Pleasant staff, parking nearby, offering indoor and outdoor seating. The charcuterie and mussels were great starters; tasty red snapper for entree; pomegranate sorbet for dessert! Hadn't been there for a few years, nicely updated, quiet atmosphere the evening we were there. Will definitely return sooner next time! We also weren't rushed through the dining.

Parts of the individual meals were good. My mushroom risotto was undercooked, but the lamb was very good. The chicken was over cooked and quite dry. The service was alright.
