Top notch steaks and great sides. I got the Strip with the garlic crust. The meat was amazing and the garlic crust had a great flavor but was a bit thick for me (and I like garlic). I ended up scraping most of it off but still thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great Food, Great Service
Wonderful dinner. Have eaten at Ditka's in Chicago years ago and enjoyed their pork chop and ordered it again this time. Best Pork Chop ever! The cherry reduction sauce is amazing along with sweet potatoes. Also had a caesar salad that was very good. Great wine selection and the Zinfadel I ordered paired well with pork.

As good as the food was, the service was even better. Friendly, attentive and clearly well trained and seem to enjoy their work. It made the meal even more enjoyable.

Host/hostess stand was very professional. Server was not. Food was ok, but the portions were smaller than expected. Wedding Soup had large chunks of chicken in it which had to be cut up in order to eat. Hamburger was bland.

I requested a booth for a business discussion. The booth tables are bolted to the floor and the spaces are not equal on either side. I am a small person but was very uncomfortable sitting on the small side.

My wife and I had an early Sunday evening dinner with our son. Everyone was friendly and accommodative..Sandra at the bar made good drinks..We ate in the dining room and the service by Nathaniel was attentive and good..My wife had apps and a salad and was happy .My son and I had steaks which were good and the "Mike" salad was particularly good..We'll be back again.

They seem to move you out a little too quickly. Food possibly comes out a little too fast. But that can be a good thing and not a bad thing sometimes. Although the food was fabulous and our servers and staff were very friendly. No complaints there. They seemed happy to have us.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 9, 2017

Compared to other chop houses of celebrities, my expectations were not met. The Decore and ambiance were nondescript. The menu is broad, and includes most of what to expect of a chop house. Wine list is adequate.
I chose a prime rib, medium, with a twice baked potato. It was served with burgundy button mushrooms, au juice, and creamy horseradish. The meat, visually, was not appealing. More towards well-done, and harder to cut and chew for a prime cut. The mushrooms were similarly bland looking and of mediocre taste. As for the au juice, it was watery and had limited essence of beef. I cannot speak for any of the other steaks.
My dining companion had the salmon served on a wide mouth plate of Asian sauted vegetables. I sampled a small portion and found it nicely down. Moist, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. It sported a brushing of teriyaki sauce, which did not compete against the salmon. The generous portion of vegetables appeared to be fresh and properly cooked.

Food was excellent and so was the service. They also put a candle on my dessert because it was my birthday. I did not want them to sing Happy Birthday and they honored my request. They gave me a birthday card signed by all the staff which was nice. It is pricey but worth it. And $5.00 happy hour martinis at the bar cut the cost. Quiet when we arrived a bit before 6:00 but a bit noisy when we left a bit past 7:30.

Ditka’s is our favorite Pittsburgh and Chicago restaurant. We enjoy it with ourselves, friends, coworkers, retirement parties, Christmas get togethers and always with Family. Introducing this fine restaurant with fabulous food, great service and good choice of wines is our pleasure.

There are many choices in Pittsburgh for fine dining, but Ditka’s is our number one...Never disappointed!

Outstanding!. Our waiter, Jeff was excellent. Great meal. I know Ditkas is known for their steaks but we had a seafood feast, twin lobster tails, king crab legs and delicious huge shrimp cocktail . Perfect! Delicious, Quality meal, service and atmosphere . We were celebrating our anniversary and they really made it special with extra touches. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to returning.

I have 2 complaints. 1. The hostess who seated us needs more training. She showed us to a table, didn't ask if it was ok, put the menus on the table, and walked away. Certainly not welcoming. 2. The noise level in the dining room was so high that we had to ask our waiter twice what his name was because we couldn't hear him when he stood across the table from us. We could hear him better when he stood next to us.

Aside from that, our visit was excellent. When I booked, I indicated that it was our anniversary. After our delicious meal of prime rib for my husband and baby back beef ribs for me, our server brought us an enormous piece of chocolate cake with ice cream for us to share, accompanied by a card signed by all the staff. He also offered us complimentary champagne to toast our anniversary. The card is where we finally found out our server's name. Originally we thought he said Ken, then Tim. Neither of those names was on the card, but we spotted the name Finn, so we think that was his name. He was an excellent waiter, very friendly and personable. I loved his phrasing when he asked us if we could imagine anything else he might bring us. We couldn't. Later a manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was fine. It was.

This restaurant is pricey and menu items are a la carte, but we found it worth every penny for a special occasion.

Service is great and food is very good but it isn't worth the price. An 10 oz filet mignon is around $32 and it doesn't even come with a side. So, although it's a nice restaurant, it is over priced. Also, the desserts are not very good. The chocolate cake tasted like it was from the grocery store and pulled out of a freezer a few minutes before serving. If trying to decide between an appetizer or dessert, choose the appetizer.

When visiting Pittsburgh and flying out we stay in this area if possible because of this restaurant. The crab cakes are truly Maryland style lump crabmeat and the crab bisque is wonderful. Service is always excellent (Ashley and Amber, this time), friendly and professional.
It's a beautiful restaurant, too. We are in the hotel and restaurant business in California and believe we know a good restaurant when we see one.

We have been to Ditkas several times and always had a good meal And good service. This time the food was sub- par (brown hard lettice on the wedge salad, soggy fries, cold coffee, key lime pie tasted of freezer burn) Service was very poor. Only highlight was the young man who kept our water and drinks full and always asked if we needed anything.
