I would not recommend Eliza for a brunch buffet. The eggs benedict were awful, the English muffins were rock hard. The buffet was not replenished often, no one was maintaining, cleaning it up. We stacked our used plates on our table and they remained there for most of the meal. It cost me $91 for 3 people and the gratuity was added. All that was served was one mimosa and a bloody mary we got everything else ourselves, you're welcome!
The only highlight was the lovely woman at the carving station. We tipped her, she was actually serving people, smiling and friendly. The beef and salmon were delicious.
We love Eliza, enjoy the jazz brunch but the Mother's Day buffet was a fail.

The service was great and the food was delicious. The patty melt is incredible, the Korean chicken sandwich also incredible. This restaurant isn't what you might expect in a hotel. The food was tasty and original and the service was awesome. The environment of the place was comfortable as well. Check this place out, you won't regret it and you will have a very delicious and satisfying meal.

Jazz Brunch was a lovely event for our family group. The food was excellent (try the cinnamon swirl bread). Only criticism was that the kitchen could not keep up with the full house and the wait was longer than we would have liked. Beautiful space and easy parking.

Cheeseburger was good, fries very dark, unlike on N. Highland Avenue. Server told us that the salads are large so we shared greens, beets, chèvre and apple salad which was very good.

While the food was delicious, there were no dining patrons in the restaurant at a 6pm dinner hour....if this is the norm, Eliza wont be around long...not the best location to attract theater or sports crowd dining in town beforehand.

We really enjoyed this gem and were disappointed it wasn’t busier on a Saturday evening (although the bar was hopping). The food and service were excellent and it has a cool, calming vibe. I had the pork tenderloin over squash ravioli, my husband had the Korean fried chicken thigh sandwich, and our guest had the gnocchi. All were quite tasty as were the 4 different cocktails we tried. We will definitely be back.

We had the special Valentine's day dinner package. Outstanding! Well balanced dishes with subtle and yet complex flavors. My only complaint was there was no bread to clean up the incredible broth from the main. Pleasant server, and very relaxing atmosphere. The acoustics are very good here. We often bring my Father-in-law for the brunch, because he can enjoy the conversations as well.

Thanks,
Doug

This is a new restaurant in a recently opened hotel. We went for restaurant week in Pittsburgh. The food was very good and the portions were substantial. Service was excellent with a very attentive waiter. Although the decor was modern the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. We went during the week so the noise level was low. The cost was reasonable and given nearness to Oakland it was a great alternative to dining in Oakland.

Eliza is a hotel restaurant, and since the hotel wasn't busy there weren't many people in the place. So, while it was quiet, it was also a bit lonely. The food was good, we had a couple of appetizers, the brussels sprouts were delicious as was the korean fried chicken. A couple of us had burgers which were good burgers -- not too large and well cooked on a delicious bun. My sons had fries which were delicious.
The service was adequate though not very professional. A bit too chummy in an intrusive manner.
I will go back to this restaurant in the warmer months when the roof is open -- because the food was good and not too expensive.

We went to Eliza for Thanksgiving dinner, so while we can't comment on their regular menu, the family-style midafternoon holiday dinner was perfect. The turkey was moist and tender, and the sides were flavorful and abundant. The soup - butternut squash with pumpkin seed and sage pesto - was a standout: a nice presentation and delicious as well. The décor is clean and modern, and the only drawback was that the heat in this recently opened building was not working properly, for which everyone who came to our table apologized even though it was nothing they could help. I will definitely go back to sample their regular menu.

What a disappointment! There are not any other dining options close to this new hotel, so it is devastating than the restaurant is so bad - and it is bad in every way. The service is amateurish and negligent, as if no one has ever worked in a restaurant before. The food is disgusting (grilled shishito peppers hardly cooked; falafel dusty dry; burger “had to be cooked medium well” [so why offer it]). And plan to wait and wait - to be seated, to order, for your food, and to pay. Never again.

The corn beef hash is delicious. However, we waited more than 50 minutes for our brunch and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. There was no explanation, no apology, and no compensation. With so many choices of places to visit, this will make us think a second and third time before returning. Also, the sound of the air conditioning was very loud with a deep rumbling that really bothered two of our party. We mentioned that to the waitress who explained that once the music was turned on, we would not hear it, but we did not hear any music during our 2 hour meal, just the air conditioning's constant deep rumbles.

Really can’t give a review since we never had any service. Was seated in a dining room with 2 waitresses working and maybe 6 tables occupied. After 15 minutes sitting there, not even water offered, and hearing one employee apologizing to the 4-top next to us about the poor service, we decided to head out. I think they need to do a soft-opening, if they hadn’t already...(or again if they had).

We went to Eliza with the intention of having a few drinks at the rooftop bar. The weather did not cooperate so we went to the restaurant area instead. The food and drinks were outstanding! Everyone was very pleased with their orders, from the seared scallops to the burgers. The beer selection, wine and the Mon-jitos were superb as well. Will definitely go back!! Hopefully the weather will cooperate next time so we can try the rooftop bar.
