Our service was okay to start. The hostess was very kind but our server was on her phone when she was not talking with us. She paid us little attention and was usually missing throughout our dining experience. The food took an exceedingly long time to come out (a bit over an hour) seeing that we were one of two tables in the entire restaurant. They were out of many menu items or the chef “wasn’t making them” that night. My friend and I both ordered a filet but after about 10 minutes our server returned to inform us they only had one filet. I ended up ordering a ribeye instead. As we waited we ordered two gin and tonics (Hendricks Gin). When they arrived we noticed they had a tint of brown. We then noticed the bartender repeatedly attempting to clean out the tonic line at the bar. The g and t’s tasted odd and somewhat dissatisfying. The steaks upon delivery seemed cooked just to our order. My ribeye was seasoned well with an excellent peppercorn flavor, my friends filet however fell quite short. The filet though cooked nicely was smelled very terrible. It smelled similarly to dog food and tasted very odd. Upon further inspection we realized the filet was definitely a spoiled cut. We were extremely displeased but presented it cordially. Neither the chef nor the management ever visited our table after and we even had to track down the server for our checks. Overall I was very displeased with the service and the obvious lack in quality of their food.

It had promise... menu seemed interesting, price point was WAAAY off. Price too high compared to other restaurants with same offerings. The other restaurants taste better for same or less $$. Not a fan of R&B music....maybe that or the prices kept this nice-looking place empty at 7:00 on a Friday night.

There was no notice on full menu not available until placing order.
Nice space between tables for moving without bumping tables nearby.
Very pleasant waiter with great customer service skills and constant smile

Wonderful Mother’s Day lunch. We’ve been to this restaurant many times, but this was the first time we’d had a buffet meal there. The quality was just as good as the normal menu though, the staff was wonderful and we had a great time. Would thoroughly recommend.

I parked away from the Savoy and had walked in to meet my friend and mentioned I was parked in lot so nice young man offered to bring my car to the lot (this wasn’t valet) that was the most hospitable gesture and I showed him my appreciation. The dinners’ of salmon for me and lamb chops for my friend, and fried macaroni balls - appetizer was magnificent down to the last morsel. Dinner was beautiful plated and alcoholic beverages topped the meal. Service was superb.

We were there for Monday Jazz -- great music!

However, we were very disappointed with the food and time it took to be served:
- More than 30 minutes to place order
- Food came more than 50 minutes after placing order
- Lobster was tough, and filet was ordered "medium rare, emphasis on the rare" but came out cooked through and also tough. Asparagus was overcooked and limp
- Asked for manager - he came and promised a replacement plate quickly... 20 minutes later, another plate came. Filet was improved, but lobster and asparagus still not good. Manager took 50% off of charge for dish ($30 to $15), which is appreciated, but it wasn't the value that was disappointing, it was the poor quality.

Excellent place to go and eat. I think you should expand and take the parking lot. Have a Cas[no. Make your sign bigger. Sell Steelers paraphernalia or have a designer fashion outlet .
Make jazz concert for Monday and Thursday.

Savoy isn't what it used to be. Not sure if it was the day we choose or what. We went on a Thursday night during a sports broadcast, which I had no idea was going to happen. It wasn't on the website. The noise level from that killed the ambiance. Additionally the food was different. New cook maybe. Food was ok but not to die for as it was previously.

As natives of Pittsburgh, my husband and I return to our home town of Pittsburgh often. Sometimes to celebrate and sometimes to mourn. This visit, we had the opportunity to do both. My fathers birthday is on the 13th of March, our aunts birthday is on the 31st and my husbands grandfathers birthday is on the 22nd. My husbands grandfather will be turning 98 this year. Unfortunately, he isn’t doing so well. He has lung cancer. We pray he gets to see his next birthday.
We knew that we wanted to celebrate at our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh, though. We made the reservation and got excited. I think my dad checked the menu online like 10 times before we got there!!
Going to the Savoy kept our spirits high that day. The staff was absolutely lovely. The food was aromatic and delicious. The ambiance was classy and inviting. Everywhere I looked around, all I saw and felt was love, especially at our table top of 5.
I sincerely want to take the time to say thank you to the staff for AGAIN making our time there remarkable!! My husband has pictures of the food that we were served. Chef, the way you plated... OUTSTANDING! Our waitress was so kind and helpful. The hostess was very warm and sweet. In the end, the birthday King and Queen wanted to be responsible for the tips! They had a great time!! We had a great time!! Thank you.

It was jazz night, so loud, but that was the plan, and expected. Fantastic food, not had a steak that good since ive lived in Pittsburgh. Very friendly staff. Wonderful experience. It's a little pricey for just a monday night, but so worth it.

My husband and I went for a Valentine’s Day meal. We LOVED the calamari! He got the stuffed salmon and I got the Teriyaki Salmon. Both were very tasty and we were full. I enjoyed the Perfect Pair and the Good Life Gimlet off the mixed drinks menu. Only downfall was we were too full for dessert and our poor waiter seemed to have the whole restaurant, so as it filled up it was harder to get his attention. But overall great food and great experience!

Didn't know this place is open for afternoon coffeee. Miss the brunch down there. Hope it would be open for brunch on Mother's Day--my mom was able to eat those kinds of food and was very reasonable. Waiter and waitresses were nice. Everyone there is friendly. Music is fabulous along with Charlie singing.

Food was good, but not anything I would rush back to get... had a hard time getting over the waitress that became non existent, compared to the table next to ours waiter. When asked about bread for table after she finally showed up(1/2 way through salads) she said, " oh, that's my bad", then we recieved when salads were finished....like stated, not bad, but a little disappointing

Two types of beer was unavailable that was ordered from our table. Wings were ordered naked and they came with breading on. Waffle and chicken was ordered when it came there was five chicken wings with waffles for $25. 20% gratuity was added to my check that I do not have a problem with. That was paid. Then three more beers were ordered and they added a $23 tip for three beers. When I question them about it they said it was all added together from my food bill. When I got home that night it was not taken off my food bill. When you try to call the Savoy about this nobody returned your phone calls.

The service was rather poor, although it was friendly. We waited several minutes before we were offered a drink menu, the food took nearly 2 hours to be served, and they were out of dinner bread, (although other tables had it). The food was delicious and the waiter was very friendly, but could use better training in a restaurant setting like Savoy.

This was me and my husbands first visit at Savoy. Our reservation was for 7:00 pm, which I'm assuming is still considered "Dinner" time for most. However, we were advised that several of the menu items were not going to be available. This was VERY DISAPPOINTING since the menu was limited in options, to begin with.

Overall a disappointing experience relative to expectations. Kitchen had run out of several things including mushrooms for the sautéed spinach we ordered. The bar was out of the Veuve Clicquot that we ordered. The “substitute” was sub par and over priced; should have passed on it or rejected.

Brought my girl friend here for live music, and did not realize it was on another day but still enjoyed the atmosphere. Ordered food, that took a long time to come, but the manager did what a manager is supposed to do. He took care of our bill and even a drink on the house. That goes a long way...We will be back for some live music. Food was great.
