The farm table was disappointing. Only about 1/2 as many choices as usual. Did not live up to billing. One of us had a burger which was not tasty—the food was overall average at best. Not up to terrace room standards. Need to do much better!!

We visited the Omni Hotel on a tour and my husband fell in love with this room. We decided to start our day there with Sunday brunch. The room is beautiful. We very rarely ever go for brunch when we are home. The food was delicious, the service was good and the atmosphere was pure elegance. We enjoyed our food and would recommend the place while visiting Pittsburgh.

Great family gathering. Excellent service. One member of our party loves avocado toast and when she saw it on the buffet she requested gluten free toast. She was served about 4 pieces with capers, onions and sour cream that was delicious and was provided at no cost. That is service. The omelettes were delicious as were the homemade muffin bread pudding. Will definitely be back the next time we are in Pittsburgh.

An average restaurant in a fine hotel. A somewhat limited menu which includes the basic staples for a hotel dining room. Choose from Salmon, steak and even a burger. The room is elegant and calls for more choices than offered. Prices won't break the bank ,but would pay more if offered more.

Our dinner was so enjoyable that We ended up changing plans and have dinner on Thursday and Friday nights. Our waiter, Slavko, could not have been more friendly and welcoming. His food recommendations were outstanding. I highly recommend The Terrace Room and the Omni.

Excellent, attentive service from friendly and welcoming waiter.
Food was spot on. We selected the Beef Tartare starter course (shared) and had filet and scallops as mains. All dishes were well prepared and tastefully presented

We had a table of seven with separate checks. Our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating with serving timing and very attentive to our needs. The food was delicious and served hot - just perfect. Our waiter smiled and was very personable. The "doggie" bag was the most elegant and classic. Thank you for the enjoyable visit.

I ordered a glass of Prosecco to start and it was only after I heard a person seated near me about 15 minutes later confirm that happy hour was still going on and that they had $5 glasses of Champagne. My waiter never mentioned this to me nor did I see anything about this on the menu. That said, the waitstaff was very friendly. The food was average but overpriced.

Overall, the Terrace Room and the subsequent Speakeasy were wonderful entertainment values for my girlfriend and my first anniversary together.

Haris was a wonderful waiter who made the entire experience worth it.

For the value, the prime rib was much, much larger than the 10oz that was advertised and I was very pleased with that. The filet mignon was a slightly underdone towards rare. The service was on point and we never felt neglected by the staff. Would highly recommend to a friend.

The Terrace Room captures the elegance and charm of the early 20th century without the stuffiness that is sometimes attributed with this kind of setting. The buffet executed the standard brunch staples well, with the omelet station being the highlight. The coffee was bold and fresh. Unfortunately, one of the individuals with whom I was dining, acquainted my pants with the coffee. Within moments of this incident, the server came over to assist with the table as well as providing me wipes so I could blot out the pants. If I return to Pittsburgh, it would be hard to pass up a return trip to the Terrace Room to start the day right.

The food was fine, but not as good as I remembered. The service was below average with the waiter very bristly and barbarically calling us “ms.” incessantly. The ambiance is stunning with everything well-appointed.

The Open Table app made an error with my reservations. I booked the Terrace Room for 7 people for their Mother's Day brunch at 1015am. But, when we arrived we were told our reservation was not in the Terrance Room it was in the Coffee Shop on the 2nd floor. The Open Table app confirmed the Terrace Room but, our reservation was not there. We had to wait to be accommodated and 1 member of our party had to leave as he had a flight out by 1pm. This was a big disappointment with Open Table.

Mothers Day breakfast and they stick us in a conference room, feed us continental breakfast for hotel guests and charge regular costs. Terrible. So disappointed.

The food was absolutely delicious! Because it’s in the hotel, many diners were in more casual dress that I expected for a “smart casual” place. Waiter was attentive, and we both enjoyed our meals and the roasted Brussels sprouts appetizer.
