A hotel classic

The Terrace Room is a hotel classic. Good food, great atmosphere, and good service. You want to make a reservation if possible, altho not always necessary. It is a lovely place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

Located inside the Omni William Penn Hotel it only serves to compliment the already outstanding experience. As with all other aspects of this hotel the staff is super and the food is as good as it gets.

Our party shared a meal here this week and the dinner was unforgettable. The glass chandelier and the plush waiting in the Omni William Penn Hotel makes this an excellent place to meet friends. I only wish the food were better. Not to say that it was not good. The portions were adequate and the flavor was fine, but it... More

The Terrace is the main restaurant at the William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh and it is a must. The breakfast is great. Order the pancakes, they are a must and they come with real maple syrup heated.. Also get a bagel with salmon. Their bacon is really tasty. Don't bother having lunch there, you will want to go to...

I had breakfast at this restaurant in Pittsburgh's Omni Hotel this morning. The buffet was excellent and I recommend it. But at $22, it's on the pricey side and, frankly, who wants or needs to eat unlimited food early in the morning? I thought the selections were excellent and what I had (an omelette from the "omelette station") was fine.... More

Party of 4 with reservations to celebrate both couples anniversaries. We were on a time crunch since we had a limo and another obligation to attend. Reservations were for 6:30pm. Seated rather quickly and restaurant was at about 20% capacity. Thats where everything fell apart.... The waiter, while extremely polite was slow as molasses. He took our drink order and... More

This is a true dining experience in a wonderful grand old room and the food is great. The only downside is the service can be a bit casual or slightly offputting and not fitting with the image of the restuarant
