We were there for Easter buffet
We had almost the last reservation of the day and some of the foods displayed looked like that were sitting out all day. The salads were wilted I was very disappointed. The carving stations turkey was cold they had to reheat it. Not good Meats were lukewarm.
The food was just ok .. very different from my previous experiences at your restaurant. It was mediocre at best. I had the gnocchi and it was primarily tomatoes and greens and less on the pasta (much less). The salad was tired .
Business meal with clients. Nice atmosphere, not too loud, very good service and food
Have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The waitstaff is great and not pretentious at all. Try the calamari, you won’t be disappointed.
Another awesome meal. The linguine puttanesca was very flavorful and not overwhelming. The tomatoes melted in my mouth. We go every year for our anniversary
Service was excellent as was the food but a little pricey when comparing to other restaurants with similar menu’s and excellent food .
The service and atmosphere is superior and the food was outstanding. The Oysters Florentine and the Roasted Brussels Sprout appetizers should not be missed.
Great restaurant! Delicious food and excellent server. The bartenders are friendly as well! This was my first time at this restaurant, but certainly will not be my last!
The Brussel sprout appetizer and the marrow bones were a hit with our crowd...and should not be missed.
Laid back, comfortable, great food and service.
The Elk was amazing and our waiter Garrett had a good knowledge of wine pairings with the food. The meal was spectacular!
Donato's was an excellent evening out for my wife and I. We ate there on Valentine's Day. Everything was wonderful. Our only negative mark toward the entire evening was that we didn't know there was a limited menu for V-day. That said, the foods on the menu were of a wide variety and it was still very easy to find something you like. The service was great. Our table was ready when we arrive. The food was perfectly prepared. My wife had some of the most delicious crab cakes she's ever eaten and my filet was perfectly prepared. For dessert they had a small cheesecake sampler - it had 4 miniature slices of cheesecake that were perfect for sharing. Everything was delicious and we will definitely return.
The staff along with the waiter we're all great! The food was very delicious and just the way we ordered it. After dinner we went into the bar for drinks and music, the bartender was just as friendly.
First this was not the first time we dined here, because the food was very good, service excellent, and the staff very friendly we decided to go back. The food was as always excellent, love the crab cakes, and even had dessert tried the tiramisu very light and delicious. Would recommend for good food and service.
Excellent as always. Sat in the bar this time and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Found recommendation for Donatos when checking reviews of another restaurant for a group of 8 all wanting different things - steak, Seafood, Italian- and Donatos menu fit the bill perfectly. We arrived for our late evening dinner and they put us in a smaller room off the main room, and even allowed us 8 guys to turn the TV on and watch a game while we ate. Service was prompt and friendly, drinks were solid and reasonably priced. SeverL of us got the surf and turf special, filet and stuffed lobster tail, which was excellent. Other meals were chicken piccata, crab cakes, twin tails, and lobster Alfredo. Everyone was very happy with their meals. Filet ordered medium rare and as with everywhere came out a little closer to rare but was minimally seasoned and very tasty. Bearnaise sauce was automatically included on the plate and was perfect accompaniment. Lobster was about a 5 ounce tail stuffed/topped with crabmeat and very little filler. The plate was finished with creamy mashed potatoes and seasoned zucchini.
After being seated warm bread was served quickly with water for all and the bread was refilled voluntarily. Caesar salad starter was tasty (can get with or without anchovies), and others enjoyed the wedge. Only a handful of desserts, chocolate cake was good and peanut butter pie was very rich. Overall very fun time and delicious.
Perfect way to celebrate Christmas Eve! The food and service and atmosphere was all festive.
Excellent find . Varied menu. The bone in veal chop was perfect as was the lobster alfredo. Portions were very good. 3$ pricing but worth it . Open table was a perfect way to reserve.
Great staff. Nice wine list. Underwhelming food.
We've dined at Donato previously but hadn't been there for a while. It was a totally positive experience, as we all were thoroughly pleased with the food, the service and the ambience and agreed that it is an excellent value.
Always an enjoyable evening Part of our regular dining routine Love it every time
We enjoyed our meal, i would not recommend the lobster bisque. The calamari was good, bone marrow was tasty, short ribs were alright, crab cakes were nice and light, and the veal chop was a little dry. Over priced deserts, not worth it. The waiter we had was extremely slow. He seemed more occupied by his other tables and regular guests than us. We sat down and ordered before the table next to us even showed up and somehow they ate and left before we even got our check. Besides the slow waiter 2 of the 3 of us said we would try it again.
Always a fantastic dinner. Very attentive service, comfortable space, and delicious food!
The food is bad, that's it. Great service, wonderful ambiance, but not a single person in our party left feeling good about their meal. 2 of the dishes were uneatable, and we were surprised that they were not removed from our bill.
The food was great and the portions of seafood were generous. The waitress was friendly and helpful
Always a great night out Its turn into a regular night of ours Great servers very relaxing enviorment
Morgan our wait person was so great! She made my Birthday Celebration something to remember. She had much help from the kitchen staff.
The kitchen showed an amazing range!
We are huge fans of Donato's! The food is always amazing, the service is great and the atmosphere is perfect! Whether you have a party of 10 or a party of 2, they always take great care of you.
My wife ordered the salmon and bowtie pasta the flavor was excellent but the temperature was mediocre at best and she found several bones in the dish I had the Berkshire pork chop with risotto I ordered it medium well and it was cooked medium at best the risotto half was mushy half was crunchy but the demi glaze cranberry flavors went very well together overall for the prices of this restaurant the quality left a lot to be desired Chef Ramsay would not approve the server is the last line of defense I was disappointed she let these simple mistakes make it through to my table very disappointed
New improved menu with lots of interesting appetizers and main courses.
Excellent food and service. The staff made our anniversary very special by having the table decorated and giving us a free champagne toast!
really great place Always enjoyed by all Don't pass on the Oysters Florentine I know I cant
Love the food!! THE BEST pasta with salmon I’ve ever had!! Whether it is or not, it always feels special when we eat there!
They have gone from the best veal parm in Pittsburgh to one of the worst. Oysters on the half shell were all torn up. Veal parm had very thick breading with thick tomato sauce over the cheese and the whole thing served over pasta. Chicken Piccata, instead of being made with pounded chicken breasts, was made with what looked like half a Cornish hen, with a very light sauce that did not stick to the meat. Service seemed confused and mediocre at best.
always a treat great service , food was wonderful, place is beautiful
Great place, delicious food selections and wine list! Have been here 4-5 times and always good.
The food and service were excellent. I have been there many times.
Excellent preparation of arugula and salmon although the accompanying tomato based vegetable medley, though very good, didn't seem to complement the seafood. Waiter's suggestions were helpful and accurate.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Venetian artwork , but was disappointed to see a door covering one of the paintings.
3 different salads were all excellent. Eggplant parmigiana and seafood dishes were delicious. Good service, reasonably priced.
