My go-to restaurant for fresh flavorful meals

Locavore and season-specific approach to the menu. The wait-staff are present but not overwhelming. I have never had a bad meal here. Love the fresh, simple, but very flavorful food. My go-to restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh. Quiet and relaxing.

We had thought of going to Habitat in the past but never made it so decided to take advantage of Pittsburgh restaurant week to give it a try. Habitat is located on the second floor of the Fairmont Hotel. There is parking underneath the hotel but is limited and relatively tight. The Habitat space is modern, light and a good... More

Ordered the tuna. Absolutely no flavor, literally not one attempt to give it a flavor. Vegetables were great. Service great. Manager took care of tuna for me which was nice. Hope other foods are better. Tuna was huge disappointment.

The restaurant gets overlooked because it is part of the Fairmont Hotel. Don't let that fool you. This is an excellent restaurant with a creative menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Went to Habitat for restaurant week last year. The server must have pegged us for bad tippers, because he was very inattentive. The food was ok, but given the price, I could have cooked it better myself!

Great food! Had the breakfast buffet two mornings. Loved all the fresh produce, bread, fruit, honey, yoghurt, meats - just delectable. Dinner was equally great.

For a place of this caliber, I expected more notable food. We had a party of six and not one of us raved about our dinner. For a side, the Smoked Gouda and Chorizo Mac and Cheese was pretty good. Now I see why the place was empty when everywhere else in town was jumping.

This is the Fairmont Hotel restaurant, located on the 2nd floor. It was quite busy on a Friday evening. This is a newer building so the decor is a little stark and the kitchen is open so there is a busy but not noisy feeling. We shared a simple green salad which had very fresh ingredients including some lightly cooked... More
