    We were a party of 4 and we all ordered some type of fish or shellfish. We all felt that the fish was not as fresh as it used to be and the swordfish special was dry. We enjoyed our waiter and Henry very much!

    Had dinner last night for the first time at Mallorca. As a vegetarian, I wasn’t super psyched to go but my boyfriend is NUTS about seafood. I hate writing reviews, but I can honestly say we had a wonderful time other than the wait. It took an hour after appetizers for our dinner- something must have been going on in the kitchen, but the bourbon flowed freely so- we stuck it out and had a nice evening. My boyfriend said the tuna tartar was the best he has ever had and the portion was gigantic! We will go back!!

    since the change in management, the restaurant sadly has declined. the food was average and the service was very poor. Maybe they just need some time to get things back in line and operating efficiently. Until then there are plenty of other choices in the area...previously with the old group running it, this was my favorite non-chain restaurant in pittsburgh.

    Complacent. No longer trying to be the best apparently. Going thru the motions of service. Good food..of course, but that's usual in a pricey restaurant. If you want to be hurried and feel as if you are in Denny's, this is your place. Anniversary dinner. Not a mention from staff. Special night? Look elsewhere to celebrate. Won't be back.

    A chef called off which caused a delay in getting food. We were provided a complimentary appetizer for the delay which was nice. We were late being seated for our reservation. The table cloth was dirty and needed changed. The meal from beginning to end took over two hours which is not typical. The lobster was over cooked and osso bucca was stringy. We have eaten here many times and enjoyed it. This time was not up to par. The staff all seemed to be struggling.

    The food was delicious, and they have an excellent menu. If we are talking straight food, this is an incredible spot. However, my mother and I went on Valentine's day for dinner. Our reservation was at 10pm, and we got there at 9:50, to be seated at 10:17pm. The place was extremely packed, and the seating was super crammed. I understand that this was a busy night, but the layout of the place was too tight. I couldn't even fit my legs under the table from how little space there was between the chair and table. My chair was STUCK to the chair behind me. The food is absolutely worth it though. I imagine that on a regular night, nothing in this place would disappoint. The Paella Negre was insane.

    My husband and I spent Valentine's Day at Mallorca for dinner. We were shown a circular table with a white table cloth perfectly set for two with water, plates, and cutlery upon arrival. The servers acted calm, precise, and entertained as they fussed over the patrons, walking quickly through the narrow aisles of the long, but not wide, restaurant while filling up waters, taking orders, and removing dishes. To start, we ordered and enjoyed the the calamari which were accompanied by a red sweet sauce of unknown name. My husband authentically chose the paella with lobster as a main entree, and I looking for adventure and something out of the ordinary, chose the african wild bore. I would additionally point out to those who fancy themselves critics, this was out of character, i.e., my mother. My husband's paella came in a large pot of orange rice and mixed vegetables (carrots/peas). It included more calamari, lobster, and I still think something else, but can't remember. My bore came thick, heavy, and fatty on a medium size white plate. The food included large portions, was well heated, and arrived in a timely fashion somewhere between my first glass of Ramon Cardova and my second. We enjoyed both plates, although the bore was very heavy and I looked over at my husband's lobster paella longingly a number of times if not to simply marvel at the size of the dish. The meal which had started slowly (one course built upon the next), then began to meet an unanticipated crescendo. The dishes from our dinners were removed and the remainder was wrapped up. (They would become our dinner for the next two days.) The maitre d' quickly handed us both an almond shot, me a fresh red rose, and set a dish of creme brulee between the two of us. The creme brulee was warm on the top and cold on the bottom with surprise hints of key lime. From the key lime, the african bore, and the spanish atmosphere we both felt nostalgic for a Hemingway novel. It was very nice.

    We were seated promptly and we're immediately treated like welcome guests. The specials were explained and all sounded amazing. 2 of us had the sea bass, a generous portion cooked to perfection in an amazing wine/buttery sauce. Our glasses were never left empty and every request was quickly filled. We cannot wait to go back to this great dining experience

    We love the food and the service. As always, everything about Mallorca is first rate. The service is great and even the alcoholic drink options are a cut above. The only negative is that the restaurant is a little bit noisier than I would like - but it is not a major problem. In the past they had valet parking, which I liked, but there is plenty of parking available in their lot across the street. Never the less, I did prefer having the valet parking available.

    We have dined many times at Mallorca with business associates, friends, and family, and we are never disappointed in the food, service, or ambiance. The staff for this latest dinner were very attentive, polite, and everyone person who attended to us had an open and entertaining personality that added to our enjoyment. We heartily recommend Mallorca to everyone.

    We went for restaurant week, we were there for approximately 3 hours so I’d say the service was rather slow. Calamari appetizer was very good. Paella could have been better. It should have a crispy bottom layer of rice and it was actually wet underneath. I would maybe try this restaurant again not during restaurant week.

    We went for Pittsburgh restaurant week. The service, food, and atmosphere was excellent. Definitely will be going back. A little pricy but worth it. I will say I did feel a little cramped but that is minor as it’s an old building and making the most out of what they have.
