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.

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.

I am never disappointed with Mallorca! It is a small but comfortable restaurant with ambiance and excellent food! They take a simple salmon salad and make it something special. Always an enjoyable outing, whether for lunch or dinner. I highly recommend the Garlic Soup!

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!

Overall good but we did ask our server to save the lamb bones for our dog. My husband specifically asked for the lamb because our little dog has skin issues and cannot eat beef or chicken but she loves lamb bones. He threw them out and when I asked if he could retrieve them he just said “sorry” and did not try to replace them

The Delmonico steak was too well done and tough. I had previously ordered the Delmonico steak well done; It was very juicy and very tender. We were celebrating a very special occasion, very disappointed. The service was excellent.

We went to Mallorca on Mother's Day. We had reservations, but were not seated for 40 mins. They were completely overwhelmed and unfortunately the service was very slow and food quality suffered. We have enjoyed our meals there in the past and will try again (but not on a holiday).
