We LOVED Mallorca!! The food was delicious. The service was impeccable - the staff treated us like they knew us for years! The old world ambiance was so charming. Eat here! You will not be disappointed.

Some customers were having a good time and too loud but overall wait staff and food was excellent. We enjoyed our time and cannot wait to return.

Wait staff was friendly but food took too long. Vegetables looked like they were from a bag and were cold. The food took 45 minutes from the time we ordered it and not one person followed up to ask how it was once it was served. Vegetables were cold and my sea bass was overcooked. We were seated at 7:15 but didn’t get out until after 9. After waiting too long for the food I had to flag someone down for the check which took another 30 minutes. I would not recommend this place and will not return. My wife liked her dish which is why I gave the food 3 stars. My food would have a negative score.

Great atmosphere where you immediately feel comfortable. This has become a tradition as a Saturday night fun dinner before going to a Steelers game with my son. We’ll be back next year and so will the Steelers.

The service was excellent and they even surprised my boyfriend (and me since I didn’t make any special requests other than noting on the reservation that it was for a birthday) by singing happy birthday to him as well as serving us each with a complimentary piece of cake and a shot! Mallorca is one of our favorite restaurants and have never had a bad experience.

This restaurant got rave reviews in our guidebook (we were out of town visitors) so we went. The restaurant looks great but the food was mediocre at best and overall it was very poor value for the money. There are much better options in Pittsburgh.

Incredible. Good does not even begin to describe our experience. The service was impeccable, the waiters and staff were fun and attentive. There were 3 in our party. For a starter we shared an order of Piquillos Rellenos which are peppers stuffed with pine nuts, raisins and spinach. Absolutely unique and delicious. Our guest had the whole Bronzino in a garlic and olive oil sauce which was excellent. My wife had Chilean Sea Bass which was beautiful and a great sized portion. I had the best Osso Bucco that I have ever tasted. The salad and side dishes were great although we had a hard time getting to them. After dinner they brought a wonderful almond liquor which was on the house. I have been to Mallorca countless times since they first opened. It remains the best restaurant I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy.

We drove from 2 hours south of Pittsburgh to have our 48th wedding anniversary dinner at Mallorca and we were not disappointed. We would definitely go there again and certainly recommend to friends. It was an outstanding meal.

Moved away from Pgh but returned for a weekend. Had to visit our favorite restaurant Mallorca. It didnt
disappoint. The Sangria was delicious as usual. The duck with blood orange sauce was crispy but not dry. The sauce was outstanding. All the dishes were yummy. Portion sizes were big enough to savor the leftovers the next day. The ice cold shot of Portugese amaretto was a delightful end to the meal. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Still one of our favorite dining spots .

Absolutely love this restaurant! My family is from Mallorca and Cuba and this was like a taste of home. Loved the decor and the general feel of the restaurant. It was just perfect and I definitely plan to come back. (Also, the goat is INCREDIBLE and I highly recommend it to anyone).

Went with friends during restaurant week, our friends had never been there, but had always wanted to go. We ordered off the restaurant week menu, which offered a nice variety of items, and as is the norm here, the portions were HUGE. Not sure exactly how big my Delmonico steak was, but it was at least 16 ounces, if not more! Can't say enough about the food and the waitstaff. Both were absolutely outstanding, it was the perfect end to the week, and the weather even cooperated for dining outside. I highly recommend a trip to Mallorca.

We went to the Mallorca four years ago for our 50th anniversary. We each ordered paella. It was wonderful, but the waiter should have told us that one order was more than enough for two people.

We went again a week ago for or anniversary. It was during Pittsburgh Restaurant Week. We got the Paella Diablo, which was a cheap version of Palla Valenciana, the most common form of paella. It had some shrimp and white chicken meat and some hot chilies. Everything had been cooked separately and dumped into a paella pan. They loaded the table with salad, plain steamed vegetables, and bread. We got a lot of food, but it wasn’t worth the price.

My husband and I enjoy eating at Mallorca. You get a lot of food for your money and it’s an even better value during Pittsburgh restaurant week. They have a very eclectic menu ranging from goat to paella. The place has atmosphere. The wait staff have personalities that make it fun to be there.

We arrived and the old school look was very pleasing and the welcome was refreshing. There was plenty of wait staff that were phenomenal at their jobs. You never had a dirty plate sitting in front of you nor an empty drink. Attention to service was exceptional. Our waiter was outstanding in both his welcoming to our party and the recitation of the specials and menu items from memory. The food was mediocre.
The pitcher of Sangria we had was weak with a lot of added sugar I suspect.
The salad was fresh and the house dressing was good but the amount of dressing should be decreased. Not a major dtractor.
The Camarones al ajillo which I have enjoyed elsewhere for years were not memorable. They were small warmed up shrimp not grilled and served in a dish with oil and garlic. No roasted pepper and the garlic was jarred and not fresh.
The Paella Diablo was flavorless. The rice needed something even just a pinch of salt. No flavor. The chicken was overcooked, hard, and had no seasoning. The shrimp were the same from the appetizer. Small and not seasoned. The chorizo tasted ok and would have been better if not overcooked. When I ordered I asked that it be made more "Diablo". I I was assured that it would be and that there is also some extra peppers in there I can cut up to make it spicier. There was one half jalapeno, one Chipotle, and some bell pepper. There is no spiciness or heat to it so I asked for something to spice it up. They recommended Tabasco or crushed red pepper flakes. If I was having a taco or a slice of pizza I would have agreed but this was supposed to be an authentic Portuguese restaurant.
This place has everything going for it except for the food. If they were to spruce up their preparation and ingredients I would be willing to try again but not until I've seen reviews to support this.
