Whitfield, led by Pittsburgher, Executive Chef, and James Beard award nominee Bethany Zozula, serves fare from Western Pennsylvania. With influences culled from the rich and varied culinary traditions of the region's Polish, German, Eastern European, Italian and Jewish settlers, Whitfield's menu honors Pennsylvania's cultural heritage, bountiful agriculture and distinct way of life.

The menu changes with the seasons, but always features hearty, farm-driven food sourced from local ranches, purveyors and artisans. Our steaks are our forte; grass-fed, grass-finished, butchered in-house, dry-aged for 21 days and meant to be shared.

We are open daily for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner, along with weekend brunch.

Whitfield was named to Bon Appetit's 2016 "Best New Restaurants" and Thrillist's "24 Best Brunch Spots in America" lists

Our first visit to Sunday brunch...Heres the scoop. They wouldn't seat us until our party had all arrived which never sits well with me (no pun intended!). After speaking with the manager, they did seat us. The service was very poor and it was hard to locate our server most of the meal. The ambiance was energetic and quirky, fun and very busy! The menu choices were great and varied. 3 of us ordered the omelette w/side salad...good. The side order of home fried potatoes were not hot and luke warm at best, but the flavor was very tasty and crunchy. Yes, I will try to dine again. Hoping the service will improve!

Love this place so much for their wonderful coffee, dinner food, ambiance, and great service! Our brunch was enjoyable despite very salty food and overcooked hash browns with beets. It’s ok, we love the Ace anyway!

Stayed at the Ace Hotel and had a great breakfast at the Whitfield. Everything delicious: bacon, eggs, sweet potatoes, hash browns, even the seven-grain toast. Excellent coffee bar in hotel lobby. Thank you to Connor, our server, who could not have been nicer.

We loved our first visit to Whitfield for a Valentine's date. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We told them we wanted to take our time, and they let us. Delicious cocktails, wine, appetizers, entrees and dessert. Definitely a new fav for us in the Burgh.

Two words to the wise: First, it is fairly loud space with hard surfaces, and a lively weekend spot. So don't expect to have a cozy, quiet experience if you're there on a weekend night. Second, the restaurant is in the hotel, which was hosting a beerfest that evening. We had a couple of drunk guys sitting near us who were VERY loud and obnoxious. Thankfully, they didn't stay long, but it did put a damper on our evening. Conclusion: you should *definitely* go to Whitfield and *definitely not* go on a high traffic night. Enjoy!

We were greeted immediately after we arrived. Menu offered items that were both familiar and new to us. Biggest downside was the noise level; it was very loud and we were seated in a quiet corner - at our request!

Brunch on Sunday was Great! Actually experienced where one of our orders wasn’t right. The eggs ordered was supposed to be “Sunny side up” but came out “over easy”.
Our server noticed the “error” immediately, and told our diner that she will get out the correct eggs immediately, but also left the first ones for us. The correct order came out quickly and all was Good! This was great service!!
Thank you

I love the Whitfield! It's conveniently located to my work and home. It's a great place to meet friends for a casual meal; morning, noon or night. The food is expertly prepared and always tastes amazing. It's always a 'hit', never a 'miss'.

Disappointed, the server was highly attentive in the beginning and recommended a chocolate olive oil cake dessert. After the meal was delivered and the dessert was ordered—that was the end. Server disappeared with barely any other customers in the dining room. We got coffee refills from a manager but the dessert never came out. No one knew where the server or the cake was????? We asked for the check-it included the cake we never got. As we were leaving a cook ran out of the kitchen with the cake. It was too late. We left. We have had other positive experiences there.

As expected everything was great. Their steaks are always perfect and the sides delicious. We had three different deserts at the table and could not agree who's was the best. All amazing.

Packed! I had reservations for a Sunday and got right in at the time I had made it for. Every seat for brunch/lunch was filled and the energy was high. Excellent food. Excellent Specialty mocha and coffee. fast service. Maybe a bit pricey, but I did have the steak and eggs. So comparatively there were less expensive things to eat. They make an excellent hot sauce with ghost peppers I wish they would sell. It was great on the eggs and steak. It is a top 5 place I would recommend for brunch/lunch in Pittsburgh.

Went for brunch on a Saturday. Service and food were good. Our biggest issue: the temperature in the restaurant was boiling hot. This seems to be an issue and someone needs to do something about it.

I think the chef has a sweet tooth as all the food we got was overly sweet - to the extent of ruining the meal. This is the second time we went and second time the food was not good. I have had the trout, duck, and mouse - all like eating a sugar cain... Unfortunate as this is such a great place, but the food quality does not follow suit.

In town visiting. Met up with my family who live in Pittsburgh.
Service and food were good. But the music the DJ was playing to a crowd that was not a progressive jazz crowd was terrible.
The bar was pretty empty there were some people in the dining room why would the music be so loud. We could not hear each other talk.
Nice restaurant but please Stop that loud music.
