We made reservations a week in advance for a high top table, and we were given a a small table in the back corner of the restaurant. They told us we would have to wait one hour outside in the cold if we wanted a high top. 10 minutes after we were seated, two high tops opened up and we were told we couldn’t move. The ambience was fair, reminded me more of a fast food restaurant with lots of TVs. The food portions were small for the price - for $8, we ordered the popcorn chicken and we received 10 very very small bite size, crispy, dry pieces of chicken that tasted terrible. Beer selection was decent, didn’t have much of a seasonal selection, and didn’t quite have the 90 beers they claimed to have had on tap. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way to return to this restaurant.

We picked City Works for the close proximity to the Christmas Village. We were pleasantly surprised with the brunch menu. They did a great job with the Covid restrictions ensuring everyone was safe. Food was awesome!!

We have recently been spending time in Pittsburgh and City Works has become our go to. It has something for all of us. We order something different each time and everything has always been delicious. Service always good and I feel very comfortable in this covid environment eating at this restaurant. It delivers good value! My daughter is a student at a college near by and she often orders City Works from grub hub, the bacon cheeseburger is one of her favorite burgers.

My family goes to City Works- Pittsburgh every time we go to visit our daughter who attends a local University. There are over 60 tap beers, great wine selection, plenty of tv’s to check out the games and the food is fairly priced. Menu includes something for the whole family. Our server was Naya who was phenomenal. Staff is pleasant and accommodating

My last experience at City Works was not what it usually is. I made reservations for a high top table a week prior to showing yet we were not seated immediately and it was not at a high top. We arrived prior to happy hour ending but by the time the table was cleaned, we were seated, and after the long wait for our server, we missed it. The service was slow and drinks were brought out at the same time as our food. I've been here many times before but this was a big turn off from returning.

City Works is very convenient to my workplace and glad to make a reservation. We had a great burger and side salad. I was disappointed soup/chili and salad is no longer on the menu. Will definitely go back again.

This was my first time eating in a restaurant since the pandemic started and it was great! I wasn’t thinking and walked into the restaurant before putting my mask on and the hostess kindly reminded me I needed a face covering before I entered any further. All tables were spread apart at suggested lengths and we were given single serve items to combat germs (salt and pepper packets, hot sauce in a small cup). Our server was friendly and wore a mask. Overall very satisfied and would feel comfortable coming back here soon!

Although the ribs were cooked perfectly. They were so salty I could only eat a few of them. The corn and the beans were outstanding. Service was fantastic as was the cocktails.

Waiter was excellent, the food was really good, could use a few more gluten free and vegetarian options, but what we had was good. Patio furniture needs replaced, I was sitting pretty low on the "sofa". It was also a little loud, maybe more plants for next year. Overall very happy with the experience.

We had our first experience at City Works on 9/26/20 and I was immediately impressed with the atmosphere. There was a unique beer list and I can personally recommend the long Island ice tea which was made to perfection. The food was delicious other than with the wait, I didn't want to send mine back. I had ordered the bacon cheeseburger which should have been bloody or extremely pink and was well done. The bacon isn't really bacon..it is fried ham. It was good though, just would have been better if prepared the way I asked. Our server, Abdul, was terrible! He continued to walk by us after we were seated, I had to ask him if we could place a drink order, I stopped him to place an order of appetizers and our meal and refills..he never once checked on us or asked if we needed anything. At one point he cleared a table, dropped silverware and proceeded to kick it across the floor. I will say he was kind when we forced him to communicate with us, but he isn't meant to be in the service industry (I am a former server myself). Unfortunately for him we tip based on service and he didn't deserve the 20% that a good server would have earned. In conclusion, I recommend this establishment, but make sure Abdul is not your waitstaff for the evening.

The service was a little slower than what I expected. It even took 10 minutes to receive our beers once we ordered them.
