I haven’t eaten here in 4 years so when I had friends who love seafood come into town, I thought it would be a great place to take them. Well let’s just say I was embarrassed. The Server was rushed, so much so my friend said she wanted to take a Xanax for him. He receited the specials so fast and with his accent it was hard to understand any of them. It took over 20 minutes to get a drink and about 2 hours to get our entrees. I doubt if I will ever return.

Beautiful room with an excellent wait staff! My wife & I were visiting from out of state and wanted a nice lunch (w/paella). However, ordering from the lunch menu, we had 2 entrees, no drinks (water only) & 2 desserts w/coffee--with tax & tip lunch was $75. Food was good, but not THAT good.

We sat outside and it was pretty loud I guess that’s to be expected considering the location. The service was subpar long wait for drinks, rude server. I ordered a filet medium and it was way over cooked and the mashed potatoes tasted instant. My husband had the goat, ox tails and a seafood dish that he enjoyed. I personally will not go back I was so excited to try this place and it was a let down.

My husband and I have been going to Mallorca for over 15yrs. It’s a restaurant we had one of our first dates and just fell in love with the place. From the moment you arrive you’ll feel welcome by the incredible wait staff and beautiful decor. The food is incomparable to anything you will have in Pgh restaurants. My husband and i most recently celebrated my 39th birthday, and my having celiac disease is always a concern. The wait staff once again went out of their way to accommodate and I had one of the best meals. They even made me a special gluten free/dairy free dessert. Love Mallorca! a restaurant that feeds the soul.

Very wonderful experience with exceptional food. Each dish presented with culinary skilll. Family style sides could be served hotter. Too many servers per table, but better that than not enough service given. Seafood is best in the city! Treat yourself!

Saying goodbye to a friend is never easy but having a tasty meal as a touchstone is always a nice way to do so. The wait staff were very patient as we tried to make up our minds on which of the delicious meals to choose. The food arrived steaming hot and delicious. As always when we eat there, part of it came home with us and was eaten with a great deal of joy the next day. The portions are very generous and the presentation was very smart. I make it a point to bring visiting dignitaries form out of town her whether it is for a nice lunch or a sumptuous dinner. Many of these guests are well travelled and all walk away satisfied that they found not on ly the best place on the South Side of Pittsburgh but a restaurant that could rival any in the many cities around the world they have visited. Thanks for always giving us a great memory.

Overall service was exceptional. Food other than the cold homemade soda bread and wilted salad with no choice of dressing-came with French dressing and overly wripened tomatoes was excellent and extremely filling with the family style sides. Decor inside very dated but clean. Our table unfortunately was next to the floor air conditioning cooling vents and extremely cold. The restaurant could definitely benefit with an updated decor and serve hot buns and either skip the salad or make sure it is fresh or replace with a relish tray etc. overall a great dinner for price and quantity of food.

The restaurant is beautifully appointed with hints of Spanish decor. The wait staff is attentive and thorough. The menu is large and varied. The waiter will then add about 10 house specials of the day from duck to wild boar to other exotic main dishes. We went in the early evening on a Saturday in late summer. Although the food, by and large, was exquisitely prepared and extremely tasty, the management would be well-serve (pardon the pun) to remove four tables from the dining room we were in as it was way too congested, with people bumping into one another with their chairs, and waiters attempting to negotiate the serpentine narrow paths between tables. Moreover, it was clear that they were either short of help or not on their game because we had to wait long intervals between finding anyone who would bus or wait on us, plus one dish came out a full 10 minutes after the rest of our plates - for which they graciously comped us a dessert and coffee.) It is also a very noisy place, so if you are inside and the place is packed - as it was - you will have difficulty hearing one another. In short, between the staff and noise, the dining experience seemed harried and frenetic, not casual or intimate. Otherwise, if you're a foodie, you will not be disappointed. All dishes we ordered were delicious, beautifully seasoned, nicely plated, and true to form - right down to the flan for dessert. Again, if they sacrifice at least four tables and gather their wits, it will be a lovely dining experience for you.

I ordered the grilled grouper which tasted like a boiled chunk of fish and then thrown on the grill. The center of the cut was very "fishy tasting". It was the worst grouper i had eaten.

My wife ordered the paella. It was delivered cold, tasteless, etc...

To make things worse, no one asked if the food was good. Even the double chocolate cake was not good.

Very disappointed.

Even though it was restaurant week, they did not skimp on the food. The seafood medley was a big surprise with half a whole lobster with other delicacies. I love how they end with a shot of almond liquor. I will go back.

It is like a fast food restaurant. All of the food is obviously pre-prepared and simply heated up. The octopus smelled and tasted ‘off’ and neither my husband and I could eat it and we sent it back; they did remove the cost of the dish from our bill but that doesn’t excuse serving customers a mound of seafood that has gone bad. It was a very disappointing eating experience.

We went here during the Pittsburgh Restaurant week. There is a small parking lot by the restaurant for customers. There are a lot of food besides the three courses mentioned in the menu. They brought us a salad, and three side dishes as well (the house-made chips were very tasty). For the appetizer, my friend and I both ordered the garlic shrimp which looks and tastes delicious! For the main course I had the stuffed salmon, which was a little bland. The cheesecake dessert was delicious as well, but a little too sweet for me. Also the service is superb!!!!! Everyone is super nice and professional! I had a great time dining there.

The energy for a Friday night was loud and vibrant. There was more than one hand that helped our table but the hispanic gentleman who's name I didn't catch was an excellent touch to our evening. This waiter had just the right amount of humor and outgoing personality with great menu knowledge. The specials, while an incredibly long list and hard to verbally follow, was where we ordered our dishes. The seafood paella meadly's sauce was out of this world. All of the ingredients were cooked to perfection I didn't even use the rice! The seafood stuffed mushroom caps were so incredibly tasty as were the sautéed shrimp with garlic sauce. My mother loved her gigantic red snapper that they deboned at the table and my father felt the twin filet mignon with a side of lobster tail was exceptional. The wine selection was nice as was the dessert tray. My only complaint was when it came to check time. If you are in a hurry to get out of there I would be sure to let them know well in advance. They do hand written checks and if they're busy it felt like a long time to wait. All and all we got to spend more time together and enjoy our full bellys and happy hearts. Thank you Mallorca!

Aside from the consistent high quality and unique quality of the meals, Mallorca excels in its generosity of extras and reminds me of the highly professional waiters in Europe.

When I arrived at the restaurant they didn't know about my reservation and they were not nice about it. After we ordered a waitress brought us a salad that we didn't order and when we asked about it she couldn't answer. Off she went to talk to someone who came to us and just said "Don't touch this salad!". A third person came and explained that salad was included in our dinner, so we could finally eat it.
I asked for dulce de leche cheesecake as a desert and they brought me a pomegranate one without explaining anything.
Food was okay, but wine menu is ridiculous since you don't really choose the wine you're about to drink, you just select a variety.
I really don't recommend this place, given that it's not cheap.
