Six Penn Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
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.
GREAT EVENING FOR US , TOTALLY ENJOYED OUR MEAL , STRIP STEAK AND THE
PORK SHANK DISH , BOTH WERE GREAT AND THE FANCY DESSERT WITH THE
CANDY COTTON WAS A BLAST......" DREW " OUR SERVER WAS OUTSTANDING.

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.
We were seated at a large table (6 in our group) beside the fireplace which was nice for a chilly evening.
OurwaiterDavid was great, knowledgeable about the menuand a good humor to him.
My husband and I spit crab cakes and ordered a side of fires so we could have room for dessert . Everything was delicious.
The menu at Six Penn Kitchen never disappoints, especially if one makes a selection from the daily specials. Two in our group had the daily fish special, and it was excellent. Dessert included a pumpkin tiramisu to die for - we should have ordered two instead of just one to split! It's a bit noisy, so wouldn't recommend it for a quiet, intimate dinner.
I am usually quite happy with Six Penn and this was probably just a one off night. I ordered the trout and the amount of trout that appeared on my plate had to be less than one ounce. I have never seen a smaller portion of trout. All the other things were just fine. The restaurant was crowded and the servers were doing their best to get to everyone.
Impressive wine list. Numerous bottles including varietals and appellations not seen on many restaurants wine lists. Wines are not cheap, but priced reasonably, including enough choices under $40 that you should be able to find a wine to your liking without too much difficulty.
For our annual trip to Pittsburgh to see the Nutcracker ballet, we chose Six Penn Kitchen for our pre-theatre dining. We started with the cheese/charcuterie appetizer with a great assortment of cheeses, meats, olives, and a wonderful mustard. I had the crab cakes which were light but with a delicate crunch per the perfect sautee, delicious. My daughter enjoyed the beef bourguignon, tender with great accompaniments. The other daughter had the special on the menu, the duck confit. The vegetables were just the right amount of tender/crunchy. Our drinks were delightful. In all this is a great place to dine. I came in on a scooter and while the main entrance is a revolving door, staff quickly sprung forward to open the adjacent side door for me. The ambience is always conducive to a great meal, the staff attentive and friendly.
Overpriced compared to other similar restaurants. Went there before an event. My husband ordered the fish special. Less than 3 oz. not particularly well prepared for cost of 30.00. Son ordered pork shank. Again not particularly well prepared, and small portion. I ordered bison burger. It was ok. We had appetizer of beets, marinated olives, salmon. All were mediocre. Slow service on drinks, wine, coffee. He was very nice, but slow. Overall disappointed. I will not go back, despite eating there previously at least 5 times before. Too many good restaurants in Pittsburgh.
I visited the Six Penn before a show at the Byham. The food and service was excellent. Our server and the rest of the staff accommodated us as we were on a time crunch to make the show. We had enough time to enjoy our meal and did not feel rushed due to the efficient and timely service we received.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Pittsburgh. Right in the middle of the cultural district, so convenient to the Pittsburgh Symphony and Pittsburgh Public Theatre. They don’t let the location carry the weight, though. The food is excellent. The only drawback is the noise level, which can be quite annoying.
Had a wonderful dinner at Six Penn during light up night. We had a table by the window that provided great people watching during our meal. Started our meal with the muscles perfectly presented with white wine & pesto. Amazing!! The beet salad was fresh & delicious but it was very small ... there were 6 beet slices on the plate. Very disappointing for the price. The pork shank is always a treat since Six Penn makes the best in the city. The fish special was delicious. Our server Dorothy was efficient & very friendly. Thanks to Dorothy, the pace of our meal was perfect enabling us to enjoy cocktails between courses. The fresh menu selections that change with the seasons make dining at Six Penn a new experience each time.
