We had not been at the Carlton for a couple of years, but were taken by friends, and it is one of those places that consistently puts out a very good meal. The restaurant always looks good, the staff is very good, and the food always pleases. Too bad we sometimes forget about some of the fine restaurants around town.

I had a quick one-day turn around in Pittsburgh and my client took me to The Carlton for lunch.

I thoroughly enjoyed this place. The service was excellent and the menu was far from ordinary.

The Lobster Grilled Cheese caught my eye and now having 'been there-done that' I recommend it highly.

I am looking forward to a return trip and intend to explore their menu and wine list in more detail.

If you're in the CBD try this place, you'll be glad you did.

This is the place you take someone special for fine dining, classic atmosphere, wonderful service and a memorable experience. I couldn't afford to eat here weekly, but it is our special place when we want to taste the finer things.

Outstanding wine list, varied menu and quiet enough for conversation. Excellent and friendly service and very good food. Seafood is the strength of the place but the menu is diverse to fit almost any preference. Prices are on the high side but proportionate to the quality of the entire experience.

This restaurant is class from the greeting upon entering to the deserts.

The staff was very professional and did everything to make our evening an event to remember. We had two different entrees and both were outstanding. The wine selection is superb and selections suggested by our server satisfied our tastes.

They offer parking and free transportation from the restaurant to events in Pittsburgh.

We will return!
