We went on Mothers Day for a special brunch menu and it was fantastic. Had some wine and enjoyed all the sides they offer at the brunch, many of which I don't even recall what they were but sampled them all!! The seitan pepper steak was of good texture and flavor. The portions are large and the sides ensure you... More

Love this place. All vegan deliciousness. You get an entrée with the buffet for a great deal. I had the seitan pot roast which was extremely tasty. Everything on the buffet was delicious, including the desserts. Sure made up for my last vegan meal. I highly recommend this cute, artsy place and will certainly come here again.

Our whole family loved our visit to Zenith! It is such a unique dining experience. The kids were enthralled by all the antiques and unique decorations. We were there for dinner and everyone loved the food. We had fajitas, the Greek plate, hummus wrap, and seitan meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy. The owners and staff were helpful and went...

My dad, who has lived in PGH most of his life, was recently introduced to this establishment by one of my cousins. He really likes it. So, on a recent visit we went for Sunday brunch. Our timing wasn't good, as we were told that the buffet had really been "slammed". Half off was offered and you would still get... More

"Unique" is an overused word, sitting in for "unusual" when it really means "one of a kind". But Zenith is genuinely unique. Vegetarian food (with most entrees actually vegan) served across two expansive, ebulliently decorated dining rooms that adjoin a well managed antiques shop: I've never felt more like I was on a Tim Burton film set! The stuffed pepper... More

This place has something for everyone. Vegan friendly but don't be fooled. I'm no vegan or vegetarian for that matter. All the food and salads are freshly made. Everything was very tasty. The baked goods were excellent as well. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. When I first walked into this place I thought I was in an... More

There is no question this is the coolest restaurant I have been to in a long time. It is vegetarian but meat lovers do not let that stop you. The Sunday brunch was spectacular. The Buffett was awesome...everything from pesto potato salad to peanut noodles to blueberry pie. The main courses from stuffed portabello mushrooms to cherry pancakes were done... More

We went for the Sunday brunch, which I'd highly recommend. Got to choose an entree, beverage and access to the breakfast buffet all for $11.50! The buffet had one whole table of cakes, one with breads, and one with various salads and fruit. More than enough food, and everything was excellent.

Excellent vegetarian restaurant on the Southside. Went for the inexpensive Sunday brunch. Loved everything on the extensive buffet and our entree's. Décor, furniture and table settings are a very-well done funky, eclectic mix. Folks waiting in line with us (get there early for Sunday Brunch) were not vegetarian but are regulars. Will return many times.

Probably the most unique and interesting vegetarian restaurant you'll ever visit. Housed in an antique shop, the most delightful and tasty vegetarian lunches and dinners are concocted from varied veggie combos. I've dined here dozens of times and each time is better than the last and there is always something unique on the bill of fare. The seitan dishes are... More
