Over all very good. I think they were overwhelmed for a Monday, but it is restaurant week. The server wasn't the best, but the bussers were so nice and friendly. I did have to send my steak back for being over cooked, but the replacement came out quickly and was cooked well.

The service was wonderful, and I couldn't have asked for a more delicious meal. Everyone in my group had a seafood dish - all the seafood or fish was so fresh and well prepared. It is definitely worth giving this place a try if you are ever in Pittsburgh.

Service was terrible. Food was ok. Way over priced. Will not recommend and not go back to again. Enjoyed sitting on the patio and people watching. The only positive I can say!

Supremely welcoming service with fresh and delicious food. The quinoa vegetarian paella was a particular standout. Most desserts are house made - the flan especially good.

I have been here several times and always leave with mixed impressions. They are obviously trying hard, and service is a strength. Ambience fine, so this Spanish restaurant is a place to consider if that is what you are after. But it is expensive and the food I have ordered was again mildly disappointing. Friends with me described their steaks as excellent, but my paella was enough for three and ordinary to taste, and the Portuguese sausage, which arrived spectacularly on fire, tasted no different from a salty hot dog sausage. My partner and I agreed that the food is not up to the standard set by many other Pittsburgh restaurants over the past ten years.

I've been to Mallorca many times but it has been a little over a year. My brother and family were visiting from another state and since they are planning a trip to Spain, we took him there. The quality has really changed for the worse. No one loved the food but it was OK. I don't think we will ever be back based on the price for the quality.

We went for my birthday. I had the roast duck with orange sauce. It was delicious. My husband had the stewed goat. I like that even more. It came with a salad, home made potato chips , Spanish rice and fresh vegetables. Service was good and they we very nice to us. See pictures below.

Everything was lovely and the food was delicious! Sangria was wonderful. We were in town visiting for the weekend and I wanted to come as my husband had been there on a date when we first met 25+ years ago and thought it would be fun to bring our kids to this special gem. My only issue was we had asked about the portion size of the paella - and could we share one if portion was large and then get several tapas to go with it. Anyway, I felt we were guided incorrectly as it was recommended to get one paella per person. So that’s what we did and we had paella coming out of ears and no fun tastings of tapas. The paella is such a large portion that 2-3 could share it and get some other things with it for a fun sampling. I was annoyed when we left that the table behind us did exactly that!! Wish the waiter had been more honest. Other than that it was a fabulous time!!

I have been meaning to try this restaurant for years. I finally did so on my birthday. What a fantastic choice. The setting was lovely, the service and food was exceptional. My sister happened to mention to our server that it was my birthday and we were surprised with desert and a lovely happy birthday song. One of the waiters had an exceptional voice! The food was excellent! It was a great choice for my special day. My out of town guests are already planning the dishes they will try when they come back to Pittsburgh to visit.

I will definitely be back!

Attentive and friendly staff, exceptionally authentic entrees if you enjoy Spanish cuisine. The last time I had Spanish food that was this good I was in Barcelona. I can't wait to find an excuse to go back even if it is just for some tapas.

We were seated late, despite my reservation, and when we were seated we didn't see our waiter for at least 10 minutes. We had to ask twice for our drinks and when we finally got them they were slammed down on our table. Such a disappointing experience in a restaurant that I thought I could trust to take my boyfriend for a date.

My issues with Mallorca were not kitchen-related. They are service related. I reserved on Open Table as I'd been texted by a friend from Florida that he and his wife were in Pittsburgh early Friday and did we want to have dinner Saturday. I didn't want to chance a place that didn't take reservations, and Mallorca was one of the few places that still had an opening in the time frame we needed.

As to dinner, the list of "specials"was ridiculously long and included lots of stuff, like chops and steaks, that didn't seem all that "special". No prices were given except for a lobster tail at $74. I did not know Mallorca themselves state they are known for "large portions" otherwise I wouldn't have come. My guests are involved with world hunger and restaurant food waste is an issue for them. And there was plenty of that as it turns out the appetizers were more family-style than for one person.

I had ordered the whole snapper, which was to be "filleted tableside". I was expecting the waiter to bring out one of those small folding tables, put a tray with the fish on it, fillet it, then put the fillets and head on a serving plate. That's not what happened. A GIANT PLATTER came of the kitchen and the staff started moving things around on our four-top to make room for this monstrosity. Then the waiter takes a regular service knife, not a fillet knife, and starts cutting into the fish right at our table while my guests and wife are staring incredulously at this act. The waiter does a butcher job, missing most of the bones and starts picking them out one by one, creating a mess. Finally after a couple minutes, I tell him to stop because we can't eat or talk while he's doing this and it seems he's got another 20 minutes or more until he gets all the bones out. Needless to say it wasn't fun eating that fish and constantly picking out bones.

Everyone pretty much enjoyed the food, but the experience left much to be desired. Then we waited a half hour for them to process the check.

great place, but disappointed that the wines by the glass which used to be so extensive is now so limited. The red was also served at room temp. Food was great as always, but the service was slow, but attentive.

We hadn't been to Mallorca in several years and were blown away by how great it was! This has to be one of the best 5 restaurants in Pittsburgh. The Cammorones were divine and the halibut special was fantastic. The service has to be the best I have experienced in Pittsburgh and we go out almost every week. My compliments to the ownership!

Mallorca has been a gem in this city for nearly 30 years! Always OutStanding! Large Portions, Just a really tremendous Restaurant. The Lamb Shanks (there were two) I had were the best ever!

I have recommended this establishment to, probably a thousand people. Antonio and his Staff are such great professionals. You can look at their menu but the daily specials are all I have ever ordered. There are at least 12 -15 each day.

Mallorca has been our "Go-To" restaurant for many years, but our most recent visit was a standout. The personnel and ambiance were absolutely stellar. We were seated at our requested table, the music was beautiful, and our food was served perfectly, in terms of timing and attention to detail.
This was a birthday lunch for 2 out of our party of 3. We began with a pitcher of red sangria, salad, bread, gazpacho, soup of the day, and octopus appetizer - all were excellent. Our entrees were also wonderful - goat, chicken, and shrimp - all prepared to perfection. At the end of our lunch, the waiters served 3 complimentary slices of birthday cake, and sang the "Happy Birthday" song! Coffee and complimentary almond liquor rounded out a perfect lunch. Thank you, Mallorca staff!
