“Marvelous Meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Had been meaning to go out to dinner with a friend of mine. She had never been to Mallorca Restaurant soooooo.............. Yesterday afternoon we arrived and it was perfect!!!!
I had the appetizer of octopus flown in from Spain and the Chilean Sea Bass, she had the Portobella Mushrooms and Wild Boar. All were on the "specials" menu. The appetizers were sized to almost be a meal in themselves. Food was delicious!! The house Sangrai
was fabulous. Enters are served with family styled steamed veggies, Spanish potatoes and rice. Rice was a bit salty, but I don;t use salt.... Otherwise, Excellent, Excellent!!! Thanks for a marvelous meal and perfect wait staff.

“Different and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

This was a different dining experience. Had the Sangria, it was yummy! I had the Paella for my dinner and it was very good. The seafood was prepared very well. I would definitely go back. The waiter did an awesome job at remembering a long list of specials and service was good. Good place to dine.

“I really wanted to like this place but. . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

after 3 tries, I'm calling it quits. It's a quaint place with a very accomodating staff that works hard to ensure you have a good experience. It's a Pittsburgh institution (and ranked pretty high on Trip Advisor) so I thought my first 2 experiences were just bad luck. So, the latest time, I dined with a critical approach, only to be disappointed again. I ordered the veal shank which was a huge portion and favorful, but cold in the center. The mixed vegetables were just steamed and uneventful, and the safron rice had grains that were hard, not al dente hard, but uncooked hard. I think this restaurant is living on its heritage and trying to be too many things to too many people. I'm not sure they even have a chef; probably just a few cooks who've been there a long time and are bored with their jobs. With so many new restaurants opening in the city, I think you'd be happier dining elsewhere.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Mallorca has excellent food and even better service. We were brought more food than we could possibly eat. My seafood paella had a boat load of seafood. The servers actually serve you. I was literally waiting for the server to put the fork in my mouth. The staff is that attentive. I had a very pleasant experience at Mallorca. Anyone visiting or living in Pittsburgh should experience this gem of a restaurant.

“A Pittsburgh Diamond!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Mallorca is by far the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. Beginning with the owner's warm greeting and the extremely attentive wait staff, you will realize you have found yourself in a very rare restaurant. The food choices are extensive and honestly, the finest tasting menu items available. The ten of us were there recently and to say that we all enjoyed the dinners served would be an understatement...
For a special occasion or just the desire to experience what fine dining really is, Mallorca is the place to go.
