I adore this restaurant but the menu is much much smaller due to covid. Signature cocktail list is 3/10.

Hostess told us to wait at the bar until our reserved table was available Noticed empty tables 20 minutes later and asked for our table and she said oh I thought you decided to eat at the bar...truly lame. Seated with a view of kitchen and the head cook never once put his mask on...hope he's been vaccinated
Food good however

The restaurant seemed understaffed and the wait time was extremely long. We received the wrong meal and then waited a long time for the replacement. The food was average and not worth the price point.

Cocktails were great, as were the beef tartare and crispy potatoes appetizers. The entrees and the accompaniments, however, were very under-seasoned.

The food was fantastic. The server, Becca, was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for more. The crispy potato and Taleggio fondue was amazing. Crisp and fluffy in the middle. Scallops were perfectly seared and the cook was perfect. The pork loin was also cooked perfectly and the Brussels sprouts were slightly charred and still a bit al dente. We had the chocolate ganache for dessert and were fighting over the last bite. I’ll definitely be back.

We had the lamb meatballs and crispy potatoes for appetizers. They were delicious! Unique and scrumptious. Then we had the scallops and salmon for entrees. Equally delicious! And then we had the cheesecake custard for dessert. Wonderful. I've never had anything like that.

Our server, Becca, was excellent. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable. Everything that you want a server to be.

I highly recommend this place. I use a wheelchair, and it was completely accessible. There was an elevator from the hotel lobby that goes straight into the restaurant.

Host greeted us with a "Happy Birthday!" which was a nice touch. Service was perfect - not overbearing at all, while still attentive enough. Food was perfectly acceptable, just didn't knock my socks off. The best part of the pandemic is that the tables are spaced far apart!!! Will go again.

Our waitress was awesome. That's saying a lot for Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh service is weird, even in modern trendy places like this. Potatos were awesome, beets amazing, and their burger is perfect, hot juicy and unpretentious, just a burger with a dope sauce worth all the $16. My wife ordered her $40 steak well done, and I lit my cigar with 2 $20 bills and served her divorce papers for that sin.

We went for my boyfriend's birthday on Friday. He ordered the burger, which did not have pickles listed on the menu and was very surprised when he bit into it. He despises pickles and it ruined the burger for him and he couldn't even eat it. Every else is listed under the burger except for the pickles. If you're going to put them on the burger then it needs to be added to the menu. The waiter saw that he had only taken one bite out of the burger and didn't ask why. We are too non-confrontational to ask for a new burger. Please add pickles to the menu under the burger.

nice place. great service and the food was excellent .. that being side .. the menu was very limited so it better be. the food presentation was done very well, service was on point. the ambiance was nice. everything about this place screams excellence.. except the menu. she had a burger, I had pork loin. the burger was a little greasy, pork loin was done in an amazing sauce. we split the meatball appetizer. great presentation and done really well. I really just wanted more options on the menu. I believe a lot of it is because we are at the tail end of covid and its hard for restaurants to even stay open atm. so they keep a limited menu to maintain the overhead. we had a few cocktails. all said an done out the door for a little over 100 plus tip.. I will definitely go back again after the menu changes . until then .I think its a one stop wonder worth checking out

Highly overrated. The food was not tasty and was expensive. My quiche was a 👶 size portion for $17. My spouse's 🐥 and waffles tasted like Long John Silver.
The server Jennifer seemed uninterested and inattentive. We had to keep asking for condiments. I won't be back and won't recommend to others.
