Great service

The staff was very warm and welcoming they gave suggestions on what to do and see in Pittsburg and everyone there was very nice from the hostess that greeted us to the wait staff. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

We waited longer than expected for our food, the restaurant was not busy. When our food arrived my husbands was incorrect. They offered to redo it but we didn't want to wait. Then we realized that the fries were cold and overdone. We also did not have any condiments but couldn't find a wait person. While waiting for someone we... More

Open late and very accommodating of food allergies/intolerances. Despite name, offers wines from far more than just California Wine Country... we had great wines recommended by staff. Chef/owner was very accommodative of serious food intolerances and created great, delicious, safe dish. (Large portions -- we ate leftovers on our train home the next day. We had the best picnic on... More

We enjoyed a recent meal at the Sonoma Grill. The main courses were excellent and the wines by the glass is the best that I have seen (albeit - all US wines). The downfalls were in service and apps. The menu includes the mixed grill option to "build your own meal" option that worked very well for one in our... More

Our tour guide Tom recommended this place for dinner . Glad we heeded his advice! Lovely ambience, great menu with lots of interesting options. We started with chorizo flatbread and the avocado crab appetizers both of which were extremely flavorful. Great choices! For Entrees we got a tofu and veggie mixed grill for my vegetarian husband and he loved it!... More

Menu was intriguing...waiter was interest in 'training' us with random recommendations and explanations up and down the menu. What he likes is irrelevant to my own tastes and dietary needs, so I'm always a little turned off by the approach that puts the staff and the kitchen before the needs/likes of the guests. There is no one size fits all... More

Nice, restaurant. We rate it "so,so". The service was great, and our waitress was very knowledgable as far as the menu goes, but portions seemed small. Overall the atmosphere was nice for a date night. But nothing was necessarily outstanding enough to make us want to come back.

We were staying next door and decided to try this restaurant. It was very good! I highly recommend the Crab Tian as an app! We got the mixed grill and it was fabulous and the dipping sauces were great! Our server was wonderful too I think his name was Ziad. Great wine too!

I had shrimp tempura one day an grilled salmon another. Stir fried vegetables both times and sat at the bar. I'll be back the next time I'm in Pittsburgh.

Three couples enjoyed a delightful evening at the Sonoma Grille. The service was knowledgeable and attentive. Some entrees seemed a bit pricey, but overall we had a great experience since we mostly selected from the tapas menu items.s I had the roast duck and it was very good. Cooked to perfection. We ate early on a Monday, so the restaurant... More
