The service at Habitat is impeccable; the food is not. My entree of black cod was served still jiggling - way too raw to qualify as a cooked dish. Back it went for a redo. While waiting, I had a delicious side dish of roasted asparagus and cauliflower in curry sauce, which turned out to be the best part of... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting your review and sharing your feedback with us. I am pleased to learn you enjoyed the service in Habitat, but I do apologize the cod needed to be sent back for a redo and our panna cotta dessert was not up to our standard of quality.

I had a wonderful dinner at Habitat! From the moment I entered the restaurant to the time that I left, everyone was attentive, kind and made me feel welcome! The bread basket that my waiter left on the table was full of goodness, including some type of heavenly bread with nuts/fruit in it. I ordered the duck and it was... More

My wife and I went to Habitat for a pre-performance dinner one evening. The show was at 8:00 in Heinz Hall, so the restaurant was easily reachable. We had never been to Habitat before, but the menu had looked nice on OpenTable. We were amazed with both the service and the food. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The manager... More

Upon arrival, there was a surprise birthday party planned, with everyone in formal attire, so my wife and I thought we were a little under dressed for the restaurant, but we were well (or in some cases, over) dressed. The hostess apologized to us for the louder-than-usual atmosphere as they were all waiting for some people for a surprise birthday... More

From the hostess to the waiter to the 'working manager,' all the staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient and they appeared genuine - not ingratiating at all. Our party went unexpectedly from 4 to 2 and this was handled with grace and a minimum of fuss. The Habitat's décor is modern, fresh, light and bright. Warhol lithographs on loan from... More

Visited in January 2014 for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. The service was phenomenal. Boyfriend wanted a drink they didn't carry, but our waiter somehow still made it happen. Their was a jazz band playing downstairs in the Fairmont, which carried the music up to our table. I did not consider the music to be too loud as we... More

We had a party of 12 for a triple birthday celebration.It was recommended that we sit at a large table that was semi-enclosed. Good idea until the loud music started playing right below us in the lobby of the hotel. Service was good and waitress was attentive. Now for the food. The menu is unusual and different. I ordered the... More

Located in the beautiful Fairmont Hotel, Habitat was deserted on Sunday night following University of Pittsburgh graduation - the restaurant is lovely, and the staff is friendly and accomodating, but the food was nothing special. The menu made the dishes sound more interesting than they actually were. Portions were quite small for the price. Our entrees arrived as soon as... More

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner before heading to a concert at the Consol Energy Center. The food is very inventive and carefully prepared in an open kitchen. Requests for vegan, vegetarian as well as gluten and dairy free were graciously accommodated. All dishes were delicious and included the carrot and coconut soup as well as one of the best pork...

We visited this restaurant before an opera and had amazing entrees (I had the duck and he white fish). The drinks were mighty tasty (an orange pear sangria for both of us) and our dessert was superb! We usually come here for dinner before the opera and are not disappointed!
