    The grilled cheeses were not great, but the waitstaff was nice. For a place that specializes in grilled cheese, we hoped it would have been better.

    We had reservations for dinner post-game and it’s a good thing we did as there was a line. We were taken to our table upon arriving. The server was very attentive and the food arrived ina timely manner. The flatbread pizza was very good! They only thing on the negative side was the noise level. Although a good deal of that could be attributed to post-game chatter.

    Great options for celiac! The server was MIA for a lot of the meal and wasn't very attentive to our needs. Still a favorite place due to menu options.

    There was about 6 tables in the entire restaurant and we asked the host to seat us a few tables down so we weren’t right beside this other couple. She said that wasn’t possible due to server rotation. The tables weren’t being held for another reservation and the restaurant was practically empty. The couple next to us spoke loudly and it wouldn’t have been a problem if we weren’t right next to them. The entire dinner was ruined by being made to sit somewhere we didn’t want to in a practically empty restaurant (it wouldn’t have been a problem if the restaurant was full, we would have understood) Looking back I wish we would have just left and went elsewhere.

    We went to The Yard in Regent Square prior to a show at the Benedum. We chose it as we had our granddaughters with us and knew there would be food for them. The food was okay; nothing spectacular but decent. We all had burgers. I did order mine medium rare and it was medium. I also ordered waffle fries and received the chips. This was remedied immediately by our waitress who was very nice. It was a good thing as the chips were not at all crispy and the fries were very good. All in all The Yard met our needs for the night. Probably wouldn't return just with my husband, but with the kids it works

    Chicken and waffle sliders- typically my absolutely favorite- however- waffle was over cooked and hard and dry. Chicken also was dried out. Was looking forward to brunch here and left disappointed. Probably wouldn’t go again or recommend since so many other options. My daughter had something sandwiched between two pancakes and she was was so/so.

    I took one of my employees to The Yard for lunch as it was their choice. We had a delicious meal, great waitress, and we also were able to have a good conversation without having to scream across the table.

    Came here based off the reviews for the food. Service was terrribleee. After we were seated, it took about 5-10 minutes at least before someone came to the table. When he came, he immediately left again. Tried ordering a tequila soda, they couldn't do that- only their "house margarita" was an option. I said Ok, it was the worst "margarita" I've ever had in my life. Tasted like straight up tequila, and immediately reminded me of a college mixed drink where the person doesn't know how to make it and they just put in too much alcohol. The bathroom situation is laughable- you have to walk through this tiny hallway full of servers waiting for food to get to it. It's super awkward, and such a poor design. When my chicken sandwich came with garlic aioli, there was no sign of the garlic aioli anywhere and it was very dry. 4 minutes after the food was served, the waiter asked if we needed anything. I said garlic aioli. He repeated it, and left. I waited, and waited. I tried to get his attention as he walked past- nothing. It was so loud I couldn't even call for his name. I ate the bland sandwich anyway so that we could get out of there. Terrible experience. We would have been better off going to the city tap or whatever across the street.

    I chose this place because it was close to Heinz Music Hall. I wish now I would have just gotten a pizza after the concert. My food came before my drink. The food itself was okay. Not hot, room temp at best. When I finally got my drinks I ordered a coke and a water, and the taste of the water was awful. This is a one and done place.

    Literally THE WORST EXPERIENCE WE HAVE EVER HAD. Waiter was higher than a kite, screwed up a huge party before us then forgot to put our food in. Waited for 45 min before having to ask. Then we were charged for something they slapped together. Needless to say won’t be going back.

    Food was subpar - arrived cold. Our server was assigned to an entirely different section, so she pretty much ignored us the entire time. Waited a half hour for our check. Seemed overcrowded and way understaffed

    I went here with my family for my birthday. We chose this place because my family can be pretty picky and luckily there was something for everyone. The service was great. Our drinks were always filled before we had to ask. It was a bit busy before the Pirates game, so it took a little while for the food to come out but luckily we didn't have anywhere else to be. We would definitely come again.

    Unfriendly staff. It started with the hostess who didn't acknowledge us & simply took us over to the table without so much as a welcome. She was on looking at her phone when we came in. The man who waited on us was unfriendly & appeared to be agitated, almost annoyed. I'm not sure if it was directed at us or not. The food runner who came over to our table with our appetizers and then our food was very friendly. She's the only reason I didn't give a one-star review. When we left, the hostess did not say a word to us as we walked past her. She was on her phone again.

    Food was good. Server was very nice but wrote nothing down-endless waiting for corrections and orders (forgot to put a drink in, forgot to put a sauce on the side, forgot to enter a gluten free bun on an allergy). They are clearly understaffed but simple things like writing down orders helps avoid mistakes and in turn keeps diners happy. My husband had to wait for the gluten free correction so long everyone else was done eating. Kind of a bummer.

    Went on a Tuesday night, place was less than half full which attributed to the lack of vibe; the location and entry were also uninspiring. Drinks were hastily made and just OK, and the food was alright - food likely would be better after a few drinks.

    We ate there before the Theater. It is within walking distance. You must walk steps to get to the restaurant. I did not see an elevator. The menu of gourmet cheese sandwiches plus tomato soup hit a home run. Service was prompt and great. It seemed to attract a young animated crowd.

    Walked into the restaurant as soon as we landed in Pittsburgh to hectic energy. We were seated and weren’t greeted for probably 10ish minutes. Our server greeted us and was kind but was overwhelmed and seemed new. My friend ordered gluten free and dairy free since she has allergies and the food came out about 25 minutes later with cheese all over her burger and not a gluten free bun. After the new burger was made we didn’t even receive an apology from who we guessed was the manager. I also had to get up and get my own napkins because no one came by for a while. Would not recommend but would recommend more training.

    I had the dragon chicken sandwich. One side was just chicken while all the sauce and cheese and peppers were on the other side. I have had the fried green tomato grilled cheese before and it was very good. I had some gi symptoms when we got home. I can’t say it was due to the meal. I like the place and will be back but no grilled chicken next time.
