Description: “French comfort food”. These three words may not seem like they belong together but they do here at Le Lyonnais. Our concept is one of simple, affordable, yet delicious dishes inspired by time honored recipes from my hometown of Lyon some of which have been in my family for generations.

“Very few Veg options”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

While the restaurant was very good, options for Vegetarians are few. The food and staff were fine, and meal portion sizes was very good.

“Upper Crust”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Convinient to the a Pittsburgh Cultural Distrct for theater goers. Nice wine choices. Overpriced. Food is too little for too much. We went for happy hour before the theater with another couple and the bill with appetizers was $300. For the four of us. Each couple bought a median rated bottle of wine. No outdoor seating to my knowledge. Couldn't clear the radio button on that one.

“My new Pittsburgh Favorite”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We got reservations on a Saturday evening in January -- 5 pm was the only available time, which worked out fine since we Symphony tickets for later that evening (John Williams tribute...Really nice performance btw). Started with a glass of wine at the bar and were seated shortly after. Loved it all from start to finish. We had the sampler appetizer -- more than enough for two, and split a salad. On the recommendation of the waiters ( yes, you get two!) I ordered the duck. It was amazing; flavorful and not at all "greasy" as it can sometimes be. My husband had an awesome lamb dish. Everything, including the wine was great. Pleasing atmosphere...great service...and as mentioned, delicious food. I highly recommend Sonoma Grill.

“Great Recommendation”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Recommended by a friend who works in town. Great choice! great wine selections. Waitstaff attentive and helpful. Ambience fun and energetic yet warm and comfortable.

Bartender missed on 1st wine selection. But Sauvignon Blanc was perfect.

The avocado crab meat tian was amazing. Would go back just for this dish. Whole grain bread with herb infused oil just right. Ahi tuna perfectly prepared. Mixed vegetable stir fry was excellent alone. however a little strong? Maybe heavy? Hard to describe to compliment tuna. A light risotto would have been better.

Great Recommendation!

“Best wine menu in Pittsburgh”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

We started at the bar for drinks before our meal and decided to stay at the bar to eat and drink. The bartenders were so down to earth and gracious. The wine menu is outstanding. The small plates give you a great array of different cuisine to try with your wine. I would recommend anyone who wants to drink good wine to try Sonoma Grille.
