i wrote a bad review last summer and almost took this off my go-to list when in Pittsburgh. Not much was open so we went and I am a fan again. It was sunday night and very quiet. I got the suck for the first time. The server alerted us that it was on the bone ..i guess people are... More

Nice location in cultural district, I was intrigued by their restaurant week menu selections. Largest wine selection by the glass I've experienced and reasonably priced too...$7. Cheese selections with various accoutrements was a nice starter with wine. Grilled chicken and whipped potatoes was very good but average. The restaurant week special was $35 for 3 course meal. Beet and root... More

Once upon a time there was a well written menu, with endless wines to choose from. A cast of well versed & charming staff that will recommend, with knowledge & a smile the vast selections Sonoma has to offer. Unfortunately, this amazing staff with a lovely decor can not defend food that has no character or lacks the quality of... More

The foods very good and they have an extensive wine list. There is also a comfortable bar area to stop for drinks.

We enjoy going there. I love the duck but am usually not as thrilled when I decide to order other menu items. They are not bad but never seem to live up to their full potential. We often bring our own wine but are never disappointed ordering off the menu. The service is exceptional. The wait staff is knowledgeable and... More

Crispy Duck is very good. Sides are good. I think it's a little expensive for what you get, but it is a very nice restaurant.

Great place to stop for a drink of dinner before one of the many events going on in the city. Great bar with a extensive wine list. Friendly atmosphere with staff and other diners. Our meals were very good. The Sonoma Salad is my favorite. The waitstaff were very attentive but not overbearing. All were very knowledgeable about the menu.... More

The avocado crab salad/app was very good. I would pass on the curry flat bread, nothing special other than curry flavor. I did like the fact the mixed grille gave me the opportunity to try a different fish. Large amount of mashed potatoes served with the fish as a base underneath. Maybe more of the seafood and less of the... More

You could do so, so much better at any number of other downtown restaurants. I'd give this a 2.5 stars if I could. The food was marginally-above average, unimaginative typical "fancy place" fare. Think "really expensive wedding dinner." The service, however, was inept and inexcusably slow. I went in a group of five for a work Holiday lunch. It was... More
