We had a wonderful experience. I wrote a note on my reservation that it was my fiancé’s birthday and it was our first time in Pittsburgh. The staff obviously read the note because they greeted him with a happy birthday and sat us a a lovely table because it was a special occasion. Our server provided us with recommendations in the city because he was also informed of our note that we had never been. The food was incredible! Highly recommend the whole trout. It’s huge and two hungry people could share it with 2 veggie sides.

The appetizer was amazing. We read online that most people stop by for a drink and appetizer. That makes sense because both of our main dishes were disappointing. They were decent food but very disappointing for the price. They tasted like they came from the fridge instead of being cooked on the spot. Dessert was the same way. The dinner felt like a rip-off.

This was our 3rd dining experience at Floor 2. Initially in August, our meal was beyond expectation. Wonderful sunchoke app, new york strip prepared to perfection. Dined with friends in December and unfortunately our meal was cold. We brushed it off to perhaps a busy environment. Last evening took my parents for dinner prior to a show and unfortunately again both mine and my mother's meal was ice cold. Asked for it to please be heated, only to have it returned luke warm. Left feeling disappointed.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary on 1/7 with dinner at Floor 2. Ambiance was great and service from Gary was stellar.

Food overall was decent but could have better.

CAUTION: Do not order the sunchoke appetizer! I fail to understand what logic went into their decision to include this item on their menu without any disclaimer. We made the mistake of trying something new that we had never previously heard of.

After getting home, my wife and I both had violent gas and all the other “joys” that comes along with a digestive system that was knocked out of whack. This ruined both our evening and our ability to get a good night of sleep.

After spending multiple hours in the bathroom at home that evening, we had the opportunity to research sunchokes and learned they are also know as “fartichokes”.

Leaving this public review now since Floor 2 failed to respond to my private comments left for them the same evening as our meal.

As evidenced by their lack of action to respond and their disregard for how certain foods will affect patrons, it is clear to me neither are important or a priority for them.

Will not go back to Floor 2 ever again.

5 year anniversary/NYE date. The food just was not up to the price quality, and the service was not that great. The food was cold. Server did not check on us for more cocktails during the meal, gave us the bill as soon as the terrible donut dessert arrived. Felt like they just wanted to turn the table over.

I read the reviews about service and was a little worried as I was bring my dad who is older (and a tad impatient). Everything was perfect. Our server was spectacular. Funny, honest (advised my son not to get the rigatoni and offered the tomato sauce over the linguini), and just perfect. The apps were the show stoppers- the sun chokes are soooo good. And the burrata. I loved the squash. The short rib was the table favorite for the entree. My son had the chocolate cake for dessert and he said it was one of his favorites.

The food came out quickly and the service excellent. Not sure what happened with the other diners, but our experience was top notch.

We had a fantastic dinner this evening! We were running a few minutes late and I called and spoke to the hostess who thanked me for calling and when we arrived, thanked me again. There must be a lot of inconsiderate patrons. She was very friendly and seated us immediately. Our server Jarrod had a wonderful personality and his recommendations did not disappoint. He had the best customer service we have since in easily 3+ years! The chef and staf should be commended this evening. All of our entrees were beautifully prepared and delicious. The tomahawk ribeye was fantastic! Excellent piece of meat and so flavorful. Well worth the cost! We had a great dinner experience. This was my second time at fl2 and will be back soon!

Food was amazing and perfectly cooked but our server was super rude- tried to make my partner feel dumb for ordering a smash burger well done, and barely paid attention to us all night even though we were one of two tables in his section. Reservation notes said that we were coming in for my birthday dinner, and as someone who has worked in fine dining for 6+ years it was disappointing for him to ruin the vibe in the first 5 minutes of my birthday dinner.

Love the Fairmont and used to enjoy this space when it was Habitat but Fl 2 was less than satisfying. The atmosphere of the space was pleasant enough but the food was so-so. The drinks were good and the wine was a nice compliment to the entrees. However, the trout had overpowered by the onions that were lying on top of it and the steak was mediocre. The sides were tasty and the app was interesting. We started with burrata and a tomatillo that did not include toast?!? How do you not include crackers with cheese and the weird tomato thing?!? The mashed potatoes were bomb but the makeshift bruschetta aka tomato fondue was like chunky tomato soup on toast. We split carrot cake and it was dry even though it was 3 layers of icing.

For $500 (including tip) for two people, we expected more and better quality. The server was so nice and really did well when suggesting a wine pairing for the meal.

Oh and when they say they validate parking, make sure to stop at the desk downstairs bc it actually only means a reduced rate. Cheers!

Sadly, it will not be a return visit soon and I can see why it was so easy to get a table last minute.

It was a very odd night. They took our happy hour order, then didn’t come back. 10-15 minutes later, a different waiter said our waitress was no longer serving our table and that happy hour was discontinued. We ordered some very overpriced wine (I know wine and am happy to pay $22 per glass for good wine but this wine cost $20 per bottle. I looked it up) then had to wait 15-20 minutes to actually receive the wine (and we reminded the waiter twice). Now, it needs to be said, they were not that busy. There were open tables and there were several people working. I would have been patient if they were short staffed or just slammed but they were not. We also had a group of 6, were seated centrally, etc. we watched our waiter give water top Ups to neighboring tables on several occasions without stopping by our table. It started to feel very personal. I did not enjoy the experience. I left feeling cheated. Do not recommend

Never got cocktails—and a 45 min wait for wine?! Food mediocre. Salmon portion size was maybe 3-4 oz.

Wild party of 12 ppl were left to dominate the room with their noise, and bantering.

Not a good experience for a Fairmont Hotel usually noted for excellence. This place: avoid!

We had a great experience at fl.2! I took my parents there for an after-thanksgiving treat and we all had a wonderful time. My mom is on the "carnivore" diet and eats only meat. She ordered the Tomahawk steak and was in heaven. My partner and I are vegetarian and put together a lovely meal of appetizers and the veg pasta entree. Not great for vegans but I imagine they could customize something - but I would call ahead to check. Great wine selection if you are willing to spend some $$. The cocktail I had was also very well prepared. Our server was amazing. Definitely ask for Jared!

Great experience, thought the food was great and loved the ambiance. Jared was our server and was absolutely fantastic, really appreciated how he spoke to us like regular people and not just customers. He was also incredibly attentive and went as far as to ask what time we were looking to leave to catch our show to time everything properly.

Our server had an unpleasant manner from the moment he greeted us. Our food arrived before cocktails and when those did arrive, one was missing. The food was not very good and oddly portioned. My company was pleasant, but the experience was not. The decor is lovely and comfortable and made me think that i would at least return for drinks at the bar - until i tried the cocktail.

We came from our of town for a birthday celebration. Our waiter was ok, my appetizer came out after my food. Our entree wasn’t that great. The braised kale was way too spicy and salty but my salmon was great. For the price and disappointing food, we won’t be back. We love spending money on good food and had high hopes especially because the atmosphere was amazing but the food and service were a deal breaker.
