Delicious food, good service, great venue. Maybe just a little bit pricey, but you’re in the city so you can’t really expect less.

We arrived early for our reservation. We did not expect to be seated until our reservation time. However, we weren’t seated until much after our reservation time. They claimed to only have 1 table and they couldn’t get the prior party to leave?! We repeatedly had to ask for things that we ordered. An appetizer was forgotten, chicken for a salad was forgotten, a drink was wrong, and another drink was forgotten. The food was great though. Especially the cornbread and the Brussel sprouts. Since I go to restaurants for food, I’ll be willing to try again. But not on a Friday or weekend.

Food was great. Service (though we had a polite and kind server) was SLOW. It was a Sunday night, not crowded -- not sure why everything took so long. Otherwise, all was good!

Overall, it was an ok experience. This was my first time eating here and after being told about this place, I decided to try it. The food was ok, nothing special. The server was attentive so for having “ok” food, she did a nice job with keeping me and my fiancé engaged during dinner. I doubt we would return for dinner in the future.

Plenty of parking nearby. The ambiance is casual and the decor has quirky, industrial elements. The staff is friendly and welcoming. We had the spicy calamari appetizer. My wife went with the seafood stew with halibut special and I selected the pan roasted salmon. Both entrees were flavorful and perfectly cooked. The dessert selection was pretty generic and we opted not to have any. They have a nice selection of cocktails, beers and wine. Overall a very positive experience. We will be back again.

Although we had a reservation, our table was by the bathroom hallway entrance and where food is being brought up. Kitchen is downstairs. In addition, we were seated by a loud and drunk table, at times we thought the young man was going to fall back into our table.
Starters and our main course took too long. We were at the restaurant for over 75 minutes solely because our food took so long. The server I assume tried his best.
The food is over flavored, sometimes less is more.
The noise level is unbearable.
I would not go back nor would I recommend.

This has usually been a great stop near the convention centre. However this year the food was absolutely terrible! The Rueben was one of the worst. Stringy, cold corned beef on a greasy and dry rye bread served with cold fries. Oh well plenty of choices in the area.
Positive note was the Servers were excellent and aimed to please.

It was so hot in the restaurant it was unbearable. Can't believe they wouldn't open the giant windows they have to cool it down. Made the experience (which was excruciatingly slow anyway) terrible. Server was nice, though.

I had a great event experience in Jan 2019 so recommended this restaurant for Sunday brunch for approx 9ppl in May 2019. Unfortunately, the kitchen messed up our entire order and when the food came out, the runners didnt know who had each entree and all the burgers were overcooked. They even ran out of hamburger buns and served one w sliced bread instead of coming back to the table to inform us before it came out. Im embarrassed that I referred this restaurant to friends from out of town. The waitress apologized, however, a manager never came by or took anything off the bill. Restrooms were also dirty and had no toilet paper. I would recommend this restaurant for happy hour but not to eat.

Overall this was a good visit. Food was okay...could have been better. They ran out of the Candied Bacon for the Penny Wise Fries...disappointing that they didn't plan better. The Smashed Chicken Piccata Style was over salted.

Had a delicious and relaxing dinner before seeing a show at the August Wilson Center right around the corner. We were lucky enough to be there on a beautiful, warm, sunny Pittsburgh afternoon, so the restaurant was opened up on two sides creating a lovely, warm and breezy environment. Menu was not extensive, but the variety was nice and everyone in the group found something they loved. I had a grilled Reuben, one of my favorites, and it did not disappoint. Easily one of the best Reuben sandwiches I've had. Fresh cut fries can be a gamble, but these were spot on. Not heavy, not greasy, just crispy and salty enough. Other dishes were a hit, as well. One diner had the smashed chicken piccata and the other had the burger: both were very happy with their choices. Our server was fantastic and friendly. We never had to ask for drink refills, and she was so quick and efficient you barely realized she was there. We will definitely be back!

It was our first time there and I was nervous because I picked the restaurant and was with 6 other women before Cher concert. The food was awesome, our waiter, Kevin, was really good and our food was wonderful. The menu has a wide enough selection to fit any appetite and price range. Thank you for a great experience. We will be back.

Went here about 2 years ago and loved it! Went recently and the service was horrible. My waitress was nowhere to be found half the time. The menu seemed like it had less options, which was disappointing and my steak was tough and chewy. Also, you have to pay extra for any sides. A side of mashed potatoes was $5.00. Which I wouldn't have minded the price if my meal was good. As far as the atmosphere, that is one thing I loved both times. For as much as I spent here for just 2 people, I left very unsatisfied.

One member of our party of three is lactose intolerant. We explained that to the waiter shortly after being seated and asked that the cheese be held on the appetizer. When it arrived it was covered in cheese, but we were able to remove it and enjoyed the brussel sprouts. The waiter apologized, and we said it was not a problem. A member of the group then order a Yuengling draft which was listed as a special during happy hour. Several minutes later we were informed they did not have enough to make a full glass. The waiter suggested some alternatives, but it was frustrating to not be able to get a very ordinary request fulfilled. We ordered 3 entrees again reminding the waiter of the need for no dairy on the salmon which should not have included anything that would be a problem from the menu description. The other two orders were for smashed chicken one picata and one parmesan. Twenty minutes later the waiter told us the kitchen had used dairy on the salmon and it was a priority and was being redone. Thirty minutes later we got our food. Both chicken dishes were overcooked; several areas of the breading were black. The pasta portions were totally different, one customer received nearly twice the amount of the other and the pasta was lukewarm. The salmon was a little undercooked. But the biggest disappoint were the roasted vegetables that accompanied the salmon; they were raw. They had not been cooked at all. We will definitely not be returning nor will we be encouraging any one else to try your establishment. Our bill pre tip was over $65 for food I could have made at home in half the time and a tenth the cost.

Service was odd. Guy who brought the food left 75% of the fries on the tray and didn’t replenish what we didn’t get. Online menu was not what the actual menu was. Overall... for a reservation only place it was 100% overrated.

Our food and waiter were both wonderful! I made a reservation and was seated promptly. The manager informed us that their would be wait due to the kitchen being backed up. An hour is a little long, we just wanted to leave after a while! We waited over an hour for our food to come out of the kitchen. In the end our food was very good and we would return!
