    Great ambiance in a beautiful and classy hotel and restaurant. Everyone that works there is very nice and friendly. Food and drink service was a little slow, but the delicious cocktails and food easily made up for it. They were pretty busy because there was a wedding. Great views of the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning. We'll be back for sure!

    This was my first time at Spirits and Tales. It is definitely upscale. Nice views, courteous staff, very good soft drinks (no charge). It was a little loud, but not too bad. This was a business dinner and the waiter was very kind about my food allergies. Anyone can eat here if you explain your allergies correctly.

    We were here for brunch. The view was spectacular but the service was even better. Our server was Janel, and she could not have been nicer. We were greeted with a smile and friendly conversation. The meal was very good. Janel made our drinks, espresso martinis. It is the best espresso martini in the city! We have been going to the restaurants that claim they have the best, but none have come close to this. We had a great experience here mostly because of the impeccable service!
    Spirits & TalesResponded on March 3, 2024
    Dear sandyb, We appreciate all compliments, but it's particularly heartening to receive praise for our staff member, Janel. She brings a hospitality touch to every aspect of our restaurant, which makes it a delightful place to dine. We are grateful for your review and look forward to your next visit. Best, S & T Management
