    Roost is not even open anymore except for private events. So, well done on sending me a survey when I didn’t even get to go. I had a reservation and was not informed by Open Table nor by the restaurant itself. I called Roost myself to reconfirm a few days prior and was told they only do private events now. When I asked why I was not informed, the person I was speaking too was not all apologetic and was dismissive. They said, “Um, well, I mean we thought that Open Table was reaching out about reservations but...umm... I guess not, so..” Roost was a great restaurant and we loved going there. I do not like Revel, it’s not the same ambiance for a nice dinner, it’s a bar with TVs on. Very disappointing. Roost: Horrible job on your employees phone/communication skills. Open Table: Maybe not your fault as it seems Roost isn’t doing their part but disappointing that I thought I had a reservation when I didn’t.

    The experience at Roost far exceeded our expectations! Although it was a Monday evening and the restaurant (as most in Pittsburgh) had few diners, we were treated to an almost private setting with perfect attentive service provided by Ryan. The menu and wine list is perfectly focused for great pairings and my wife and I both went for the Double Chop which was unbelievable... perfectly cooked and delivered with a Heitz Cellars 2014 Cab pairing. My appetizer was the Burrata Board which was a perfect prelude to the entree. The mellow jazz background music and window seating made it an excellent evening out with my wife. Note: be prepared-the double chop is a lot of food, but oh so good. We look forward to dining here again and eating our way through the menu!

    A friend and I had an excellent dinner at Roost. Our server Bob was very attentive and answered any questions we had about any menu items offered. We will definitely be back.

    Drinks and food were great! We had a martini and margarita. We tried the scallop appetizer, octopus and tuna. All were good. A bit pricey. Server was helpful with suggestions

    Roost has become my favorite restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh. The cuisine is excellent. The service is very professional. Our waiter, Bob, is always a true gentleman. The decor is unique, and there's an excellent view of Forbes Avenue below. While more patrons head to Revel on the ground floor, Roost is very pleasant and much quieter. Roost really is a true Pittsburgh gem. Highly recommended! - Jim, Cranberry Township

    Roost offers a great view if you're lucky enough to get a table by the window. The food and service are always excellent, as well. I would caution anyone that is pinched for time, though. The food does not come quickly here. If you have plenty of time, relax and enjoy this gem. It's worth the wait!

    Our waiter Bob helped make the experience second to none, but even without that added benefit we would have recommended Roost to anyone with tastebuds. The food was outstanding, perfectly prepared and presented. Loved the scallops so much we went back the next evening for apps and drinks, just to have the scallops again! Definitely going back again.

    We came here before a Liberty Magic show due to the location. Apparently we were early because the bar/restaurant downstairs was packed but we were the only ones on the upper level. Service was excellent (we were the only table), we both got the steak option. Really excellent experience, we will definitely be back.
