The service was terrific. Our server was friendly and very helpful with food and drink recommendations. Her name was Nadia. Our party was very happy. We’d go back again.

The hostess staff was not very friendly, and they had to seat us in the bar area with two small children, said no other tables were available. Our server was very attentive and friendly.

We met a friend for a farewell dinner and had a nice time. We brought our kids and they had a small but good kids menu (pizza, burgers, chicken nuggets), and gave them kids cups and had a page to color. Our party had the salmon, barbecue platter, and a pasta dish. The food was delicious and our drinks were nicely done. Our waitress did a wonderful job - she was very attentive. The hostess was not friendly or helpful, and the place is LOUD - so loud we were practically yelling across the table, so this isn’t a great place for conversation or a romantic date.

I went to City Works to celebrate my graduation. The food was tasty, though the burgers my parents ordered were well done (they ordered it medium) and the fries were cold (our server was very nice and brought us fresh hot fries).

Drinks are pretty great. Glad that they have a gluten sensitive and dairy free brunch choice, but I ordered the white wedding frittata and basically got an egg white omlette with a few pieces of asparagus on it. It was supposed to come with an avocado salad on top. I told the staff and they brought me a sad plate of arugula, I had to show them the menu to prove that my meal was missing a key element. By the time it was addressed I had already finished most of my food. Made the experience pretty meh.

Great evening out! We sat outdoors, under the heated awning & it was great. Though the evening was chilly, we were still comfortable. Really good food (chicken tacos and filet sliders), and fun flights of beer + cider. Great service and friendly staff. We'll definitely be going back!

City Works in Pittsburgh is one of the few places that have all their beer taps available! The food and service is always great! We were there with friends this past Friday night and we had a new server named Drew. He was funny, attentive and made our evening that much better!

The only complaint I have is their should be more healthier appetizers and small plates everything is fried ! Even if you did different flatbreads or pizza ! Lots of people now are looking for healthier options . But your the only great place in market square these days !!

We ordered the bbq platter and everything on it was cold. Not just tepid but cold. For the restaurant being so crowded one would think that food would be served hot.

The only negative from our dinning experience was the appetizer we ordered, Buffalo chicken wing dip. We’re from Buffalo, NY and our Buffalo chicken wing dip is different than the one we had here. There were massive chunks of chicken in this dip with red peppers and carrots and other veggies that just weren’t necessary and overpowered the actual dip. It wasn’t spicy or had any sort of kick to it as one would assume ordering “Buffalo” sauced chicken wing dip. We still ate it to try it because it was different than your standard/original dip but all we could taste were the vegetables. In Buffalo, NY it’s as simple as: cream cheese, shredded chicken, Frank’s hot sauce, blue cheese, and sharp cheddar cheese. The rest of our food was good however! The server was nice, just super busy as almost every table was filled. Overall, we’d come here again when visiting mainly for the ambiance and drinks!

A friend and I dined for brunch because I was in the mood for a good Bloody Mary. I definitely got just that. The garnishes were delicious, as was the drink itself. My friend got French toast with a Bailey’s filling and berry compote on top and I got a breakfast bowl that had grits, sausage, and braised pork belly. We both enjoyed everything and said we need get back as soon as possible! Oh, and our server, Courtney, was very friendly and helpful while helping us to navigate the menu and suggest items.
