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

Would never pass this up if I were to visit Pittsburgh again. Our waiter Rajeev was out of this world. The food was fantastic and the wine was to die for. This is a must if visiting Pittsburgh.

Had a very nice, quiet, romantic dinner with my husband to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The Indian bread is to die for. Beet salad great. I had Halibut and my husband black cod for entree. We both loved our dinners. Our server was excellent (Nathaniel) and the manager made sure to stop by our table to make sure we were... More

The restaurant is located on the second floor of the Fairmont Hotel in Pittsburgh. My wife and I met some friends for Sunday dinner during “restaurant week”. We ordered off of the special restaurant week menu and had 3 courses. Between us, we had the risotto, scallops, duck, and the ice cream cake. The food was excellent. The service was... More

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
