Lovely restaurant with friendly staff who will pour your wine even if it is not their table. Great perk to have free parking downtown and a limo ride to and from the Symphony
Excellent food as always...service subpar for the first time for us...admittedly on a very busy evening. Waiter appeared to be harried and did not seem to have the time to attend to our table as he would like.
Food was great. Service from Bobby was straight forward and down to earth. I let him choose my dinner selection and he hit the mark. Our first time at The Carlton and we will definitely return now that we know that the food and service are excellent and the atmosphere is comfortable. As I mentioned to my wife a gift certificate received brought us in but the experience will bring us back.
Amazing! Great Sea Bass Oscar. World-class preparation.
It constantly over delivers!
From the greeting to the farewell ...
Took my wife to The Carlton for her birthday, and we had an excellent dinner and experience. The food and service were both outstanding. My wife has dietary restrictions, and Kevin (manager) and Michael (our server) both ensured that her meal was prepared just as she wanted. Friday was graduation night and the restaurant got busy, but we never felt neglected, nor did we have to wait for any part of our meal. Excellent all-around experience. We will definitely return to The Carlton.
Amazing as always!
We were seated next to a large wine tasting party
Had a great time here before a concert at PPG. You'd be a fool to not come here before an event because they provide free parking (20 to 30 at the arena) and a limo service that takes you right to the front door. For the same money we would have spent on parking, 4 drinks and a junk food meal at PPG, we had a bottle of wine, wedge salad, fish and chicken entrees and amazing creme brule.
Our waiter Bobby was great and the Manager and hostess staff was very knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.
Ignore the snobby reviews and go!
Great food and atmosphere!
Bobby was extremely attentive. Food preparation was it standing and his description of the Mero was spot on. Excellent evening
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We enjoy the food and my favorite dessert in the city.
Three people of our group had the Mero fish dinner and it was fantastic. One person had breaded Veal with Portobello and it was very good also. Our waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable of there offerings. Great food and excellent service!
WE had a great experience at the Carlton! Enzo was a waiter and he was very attentive.
Everything was exceptional, especially the service. The food was delicious! The only reason I rated the food 4/5 stars is personal preference--texture. We both ordered fish dinners and and although it was perfect, everything had one texture (soft). The only other texture between our two plates was 4 asparagus stalks. Aside from not needing to chew, fantastic. Highly recommended.
The food was absolutely delicious. But if you need to be back to work in an hour, go somewhere else. We waited 20 min to have our order taken, and 20 min afterwards to receive our bill. And it was a thirsty wait! During lunch someone filled water glasses once - but it was shortly after we received them. No refills were ever offered for any other drinks and all glasses were empty while we waited. Thumbs up to the Cobb Salad, Burger and Crab Cakes. Prime Rib Sandwich was ok but not a do again.
It was my wife’s birthday, but we enjoy dining at the Carlton often. The food is always imaginative and tasty. The presentation and ambience is outstanding. The service is attentive and elegant.
I made a special request for their excellent Seafood Wellington. They served it even though it wasn’t on the menu. I enjoyed it immensely.
Thank you Carlton!
This restaurant is outstanding! We had great service and the waiter was exceptional. I highly recommend The Carlton!
The staff couldn’t be nicer! They made our anniversary more special! Food was excellent as always!
Best restaurant in the city. Always delicious food, impeccable service and a relaxing atmosphere.
Great dining experience. Our wait staff Chris was equally great.
The food was delicious. The service was great. Definitely looking forward to dining at The Carlton again.
The Carlton never dissappoints, by far the best restaurant in Pittsburgh! Excellent food and exceptional service.
Had a dinner with business clients and the experience was really good. The food quality and flavor were great!
Had a great waiter. Service was excellent so was food. Used 25$ birthday coupon.
The Carlton continues to be the premier spot in Pittsburgh as it has been since its inception
Enjoyed a delicious dinner and awesome service by Anthony !!!
Great service! very attentive staff and quite friendly. Menu is limited but every dish I've had there has been excellent. This time is was busy (a hockey night in Pittsburgh) and yet it was not too noisy or bustling. I'd recommend to anyone dining in downtown Pittsburgh.
Enzo is outstanding! Food and wine are topnotch! One of our favorite places to eat.
Always very good. Don’t get there very often.
Outstanding service and the entrees were exceptional. Great wine list and the shuttle to the Benedum was a very nice touch. We will be regulars
The lobster and crab gnocchi was recommended by the waiter and it was amazingly delicious! The waiter's was Bobby, he was patient and nice. Good ambience too.
Great menu for seafood. Excellent wine list. Quite reasonably priced. We ate here before going to the Point Park conservatory theater. Quite convenient.
Had tickets to a show, waiter was wonderful! Took their limo service to show. It was so convenient. Food was great!
Excellent meal and service. Free parking and limo service to and from the Byham. The Carlton never disappoints.
Wonderful experience in Mount Washington area overlooking Pittsburgh. Our corner table sat overlooking the three rivers and the entire downtown area. We watched the Duquesne Incline carry passengers up and down. Food ingredients are fresh, farm to table. Service is outstanding, and the wine list is very good, although, a little pricey. We cannot say enough good things about the dining experience. A must try for foodies visiting Pittsburgh. Suggest you request a window table to maximize the ambience.
The restaurant was warm and inviting. Noise level was perfect for conversation with my friends. Our waiter was funny, engaging and efficient. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We shall return.
A very excellent meal. My husband who is a chef had no complaints at all!
Always a top quality experience. The food, service is always of the highest quality. A business lunch favorite.
We recently went here to celebrate a Birthday.
We had a later reservation (7:00) so the restaurant was very quaint/romantic.
Definitely fine dining in everything but price. It's priced the same as BoneFish (eat there the next day)
However, the experience/service was very high end and the food exceptional with moderate to large portions. (We took 1/3 of the food home)
Be careful they pour a strong drink:) Luckily only had 1. Had to drive home.
