Nice variety of breakfast items including gluten free and locally grown/produced. Waffles, pancakes, french toast on request. We were too full from the buffet and chef-made omelettes but will save room for French toast next time as the neighboring table ordered it and it smelled and looked fabulous. Impeccable service. If not included in your package, purchase breakfast from the... More

I read quit a few of the reviews, and after a particularly trying day, decided to splurge a bit. Good choice. The service was excellent, the hotel and restaurant have a very special feel. The only knock is the inevitably rare "medium rare" steak, which was excellent. Great for special occasions, or when you just need a "me" moment.

We wanted to check out the bar at the Terrace Room before our dinner reservation and we were not disappointed. They might make the best martini in the entire city of Pittsburgh!

I stayed at the Omni and went down for breakfast. Ernesto was my great waiter. I had a specific "easy" order (eggs, bacon, fruit) and they made it with no problems. Many business teams there for breakfast. They also had a buffet set up.

The restaurant is beautiful and elegant. The soaring ceilings and beautiful decor definitely make this a special occasion type restaurant. But then the food is upscale hotel dining type. There was nothing wrong with it, it just doesn't have that special something a destination restaurant would. It is a hotel restaurant. The chef does do weddings and other banquets where... More

Dining here is the whole package- an outstanding setting, with incredible amounts of room between diners. The service was professional and attentive, and the food was worthy of the reputation of the hotel. We brought in a birthday cake from an outside bakery, which the waiter was gracious enough to bring out with candles and serve. I imagined being Andrew... More

In restaurants with every number of stars, from the lowliest to the fanciest, I've had the sad situation of asking if I could get X dish but without the Y and been told no, it's pre-prepared, you can't just get this without the whatever ingredient in the sauce you're deathly allergic to. And it makes sense. A lot of dishes... More

There was one table of four loud people in the restaurant when we were seated- lots and lots of empty tables in the restaurant. The hostess takes us to a table 1 foot away from the occupied table. Fortunately, a friend of ours came in the restaurant, and we got up and moved to a quieter table for four. We... More
