My girlfriend and I came for Valentines Day dinner and arrived 15 minutes before our reservation, but were taken care of and seated immediately. Like the rest of our visits, the service was outstanding and all of the food and cocktails were absolutely delicious. The only disappointing part is that was our last visit because they are closing Saturday. :( This was our favorite restaurant downtown.

Delicious as usual! The pork shank is the best and their drinks topped by no one. Too bad they are closing their doors for good on Saturday Februray 17th, 2018....shame on you Eat-n-park!

This restaurant is great! Unfortunately it is closing, we do not know why!! I hope the owners reconsider!
Sadly we went for our final dinner and our entrees were delicious. We also ordered two additional entrees to take home and eat the next day. They were also delicious!
It is sad when a consistently good restaurant goes out of business. Again, we hope the group that owns and operates this restaurant will give it another chance.

This was a bitter-sweet visit to one of our two favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. Sweet because it's always a good time. Bitter because it will be our last visit as it is closing soon.

Great restaurant with a large variety of different tastes for every palate... very sad to see it go:( It was a perfect spot to head downtown for a preshow bite, to celebrate a special occasion, or share a meal with your loved ones... Menu was very extensive, and there was always something on there for even the pickiest eater! A must do restaurant!

 (Chicago)·Dined on February 3, 2018

We went before going to see Wicked downtown and were strapped for time. Bottle of wine took 15 minutes to get to our table (points against service), cork got stuck, they had to get another bottle and didn't give us the one with floating cork pieces (points for service). We ordered the New York Strip (it came out cold) and the crab cakes with risotto. The crab cakes were excellent but the risotto was also cold. I'm not sure what was going on in the kitchen, the place is usually very good. We will go back, but this trip was a little iffy. We would have sent the food back, but didn't want to miss the show.

Dinner before a show. Great service but food wasn’t up to par. I had this same chicken dish
a few months ago. This time the latke was mushy and sweet not crunchy like the last time I had it. Looked like a sausage patty. However they were accountable for the latke and they offered me another vegetable and free dessert for the table. Great customer service. I’d would go back again.

I had the Meat and Cheese plate, the Wild Boar Pasta, and my daughter had Bison burger. The meat and cheese plate was good, fair size for 16 bucks. Our entrees were gross, i needed to salt mine and it still tasted like hamburger helper and there were no brussel sprouts in it, the burger was flavorless too. Seriously. I didnt complain we just boxed them up and left, it cost so much i thought i would eat it later, but i pitched them. I wish i had that $100 back.

Our dining experience was very nice. We dined here before going to the theater, and we were able to have a relaxing dinner including dessert and were still in plenty of time for our performance. The food choices on the winter menu were more limited than we expected after looking at the online menu offerings, but there were still an ample number of entree choices including specials of the day. The Autumn Butternut Squash soup was delicious. My NY strip steak was tender and perfectly cooked and my husband's pork shank dinner was very tender and was very good as well. The only thing we did not care for was the desserts we ordered. The Cranberry Bombe was beasutifully presented on the plate, but had almost no flavor when eaten. The cranberry-orange sorbet sounded interesting, but proved to be way too tart, and almost bitter. We enjoyed our dinners and would definitely go back to this restaurant. We woulld just make different dessert choices than the ones we had. We had excellent service, and the kitchen was also very accommodating to some dietary requirements that I had.

Our evening was great, the food and service excellent. Our server, Darrell, was very personable and provided excellent suggestions for our meals. My wife and son-in-law followed his lead for the pork shank dinner , which Darrell tries to get every table to at least order one, and enjoyed it thoroughly - it was fall off the bone pork seasoned and cooked perfectly. My NY Strip was also prepared as requested and was excellent! We will be back and request Darrell!

I ordered the mahi special. The portion of fish was small and the accompanying black beans were hard. I also ordered a seasonal drink for $10 and it was so tart that it was almost inedible. My husband ordered the pasta with boar. Again the serving was small and unimpressive. Go for the pork or burger as they are a better value.

My husband and I spit crab cakes and ordered a side of fires so we could have room for dessert . Everything was delicious.
