“Great Atmosphere and Food”

Make sure that you try the fried chick and waffles - food very good and fresh, service is good and there is a certain vibe that makes the people watching great.

“Good food, good service, nice bar.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The place downstairs is classy but not over the top formal. There are several creative dishes on the menu that are outstanding and we appreciated the 'soul food' spin of the restaurant. Overall the staff was attentive and efficient and food was very good. There were some items better than others on the menu, but most things were prepared creatively and well. If they have the chocolate ravioli when you go- do not pass it up. I do remember a few things being a tad too salty. Bar downstairs was fun with very friendly bartenders who make great drinks and pretty mellow. The bar upstairs on the weekends reminds me of the dr dre video from 'the chronic'. Loved it.

“Classy, clean, good service and average price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

If you are a business man or simply a culinary experience seeker, Savoy is your place in Pittsburgh. Though it hard to compare to French restaurant, this one is a level up in comparison to the other we tried. First, the look of the restaurant is refreshing and stylish. You don't want to go there wearing commoner clothes. Second, the staff is amazing! They are smiling, they take care of you and even entertain you if you are a tourist at least. Finally, the food is very good, though some lack of detail in the presentation hurt. The price is cheaper and the food better in comparison to other good restaurants such as the Fish Market of the Westin hotel.

If I ever go back in Pittsburgh, I will certainly return.

“Great atmosphere and outstanding service, but the food is just ok.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The food is ok but nothing special--passable for the price but certainly nothing to write home about. The menu does have a lot of variety. I had a BBQ pork entree with grits and my boyfriend had a steak. My pork was quite bland --could not taste the BBQ flavor at all, and it was difficult to eat as they served it in an angled bowl over the grits, making it difficult to cut with a knife in the bowl. My boyfriend's filet and haricot verts were not bad, although he said for the price he would have liked to have seen a larger piece of steak. With a little work and attention given to the flavor and seasonings of the dishes, the food could be quickly and easily improved.

The overall presentation was good, but the flavor was what was lacking. However, a great ambiance and outstanding service still made for a very nice evening out. And the upstairs bar is a great place to stop for another drink
before or after dinner.
