I ate there as part of a business lunch during a convention. It is close to the convention center. I had a salad which was quite good. Service was very accommodating for a group during this busy time.

Friends and I dined at the Sonoma Grille which is connected to the Courtyard Marriott Downtown on Penn Ave. We decided to catch a bite before the Steeler Sunday Night Game. Service was friendly and attentive. They have accordion doors that open to the outside, so you can have the best of both worlds. The Sonoma Salad was excellent. Three... More

In downtown Pittsburgh across from the convention center is a great restaurant and wine bar. A very nice outdoor sitting area when it's nice out and great food and wine inside. Tater tots and shrimp & kimchi pancakes for appetizers were delicious. Everyone enjoyed their entrees including the roast which is spare ribs that melt in your mouth. Great wine... More

Had a very nice business dinner. Place was quiet enough for a serious business conversation. Small plate items were very good especially the crab avocado (see photo). Service was very good but on a Monday not very many customers so I am sure this helped on this point. Main course items were well presented and tasty. This is not a... More

We've enjoyed Sonoma Grille for years, so our recent experience was quite a surprise. My starter, fish crudo, was billed as "citrus, chili, pickles, egg, chips". What arrived was a serving of two kinds of white fish, a couple slices of raw pepper and orange, and some corn chips. There was no marinade (or pickles) and the fish, while fresh,... More

My Pittsburgh friends always talk up the Sonoma Grill. While visiting for a football weekend our group of friends made reservations for 7 PM on a Friday night. Sonoma is a very nice facility with an apparently excellent reputation for their wine selection. We had a difficult time finding the wine we wanted in stock. We finally found a bottle... More

It's not really summer without great rosés, right? I visited Sonoma Grille several times last month during a conference because of its proximity to the convention center and the "delici-osity" (lol!) of their rosé flight! After my first rosé flight accompanying dinner on my first night in town, I was hooked. While dinner and service that evening was adequate, the... More

This restaurant is well located, and the food was very good. The wine list is extensive. Most appear to be reasonably priced though an extended list of premium wines can be had by parting with substantial sums.

We had breakfast/lunch at this restaurant. So glad we found it on our last morning here. The food was expertly prepared and presented. I had Eggs benedict, 1 friend had the burger and 1 had pancakes. We were all thrilled with our choices. The restaurant is beautiful and has outdoor seating. Although we did not get to sample the wines,... More
