A few of my family members came in from Philadelphia to visit, so we took them to Habitat last night. Very modern, clean, open. Hostess was welcoming, but we did not see our waiter for about 15 minutes, not even to receive water. My father's girlfriend went to the assistant manager, Gerry, to inquire as to what the problem was,... More

We have dined here maybe 5 Times in past 3 years as our daughter has attended Pitt. The setting is terrific with great downtown views (from about 3 floors up), and a terrific contemporary vibe. The Chef focuses on local-grown and raised foods, prepared with careful attention to details. Wine list is solid with a typical markup - look to... More

My husband and I dined at Habitat this weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and food. Top-notch, top-notch, top-notch. Though pricey, the dishes are thoughtfully and carefully prepared. Fortunately, our hostess placed us at a table that gave us a direct view of the kitchen (you get to see almost every move the chefs/cooks make!) and as a... More

The food was quite excellent and delivered quickly. The décor of the restaurant is quite pleasant and modern. I don't care for kitchen that open into the dining room, but I know that this is fashionable...and smelly. The service was sincere if somewhat nervous.

I usually come here a few times a year and it continues to impress me every time. If you go for lunch make sure to order "The Express" it is $18 but is well worth it, the choices change daily and are always prepared fresh. The minestrone soup we had was by far the best I have ever had. I... More

We visited Habitat for breakfast and found it a bit hard to find because it is on Market Street (which is what 6th street turns into but no one told us) also it is in the Fairmont Hotel which no one mentioned. However, once we reached the restaurant it all turned around for us. The food was very good. I... More

Our Server was Nathaniel and he was an absolute delight and knew the menu like the back of his hand. We explained to him that it was our first visit to Pittsburgh and asked for his guidance. He was more than willing to take the time with us and assist with our decision making. My husband had the cod and... More

This restaurant is on the second floor of the outstanding Fairmont hotel. It can be reached by steps or elevator. It is adjacent to the business center and meeting rooms. There is a small bar at the front of the restaurant just behind the host stand, nicely located to wait for a guest. Most importantly, they make a perfect martini... More

Habitat, in the Fairmont Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh, is one of the best restaurants we know of-- anywhere. The atmosphere is quietly elegant. The menu is extensive, varied, and seasonal. The food is very well prepared-- and if you ask for something special, the answer is always "of course"... and then the staff makes it happen. If you ask for... More
