Eat the specials. I come here at least once a season to check out whats new on the menu and to see what beauty the cooks have created. They really do food well, seem to choose great ingredients and push the envelop on creative food in a way that is both elegant without being stuffy. Its as if it takes... More

Went here for lunch and ate at the bar. Asked the bartender what am I eating and he said you have to have the special - Fish Cod Taco with slaw and a side of cajun mac n cheese. Boy was he right! I could have that everyday as it was light and at the same time filling. Had a... More

The long line up of smelly dumpsters for the entire building which are next to the restaurant may be necessary, but it turns my stomach and that in itself, is bad enough. But what they do have control over is that the employees, who you know are cooking your food, line up - standing and even sitting on the ground... More

We had reservations for two prior to seeing a show at Heinz Hall. Unfortunately the weather was terrible and we ended up being 30 minutes late for our reservation. The staff called us when we didn't show and held our table which was appreciated. Due to the time crunch, we didn't have many options to pick from the menu that... More

Very disappointing experience for a business dinner. The restaurant was busy so completely understand the slow service, but there is no excuse for the food quality (uneven portions for identical entrees, over salted in some cases) and chintzy portions given the prices. Will not be back.

Each time I visited the food was not up to par with taste, quality, and of course then price. The portion was skimpy on the lamb chops however decent on the salmon. No flavor on the accompanying vegetables with the lamb dish.

We made reservations here for dinner before a performance of The Nutcracker. The restaurant is conveniently located to the Cultural District. My wife and two granddaughters all had different dishes and there was not a decent meal among the four. This is the third year in a row we have been there and the last two years have been dreadful...

When my boyfriend and I arrived they asked if we had reservations which we did not. The hostess then said we have a reservation coming in at 7:15 do you think that's enough time for you? It was 5:45 so we said ya it would be. Thought that was kind of odd and rude, what if it wasn't enough time?... More

Come to Six Penn Kitchen hoping for a Sunday brunch that rivaled their dinner menu. To say I was disappointed would be a major understatement. First, the menu was completely uninspired. A couple of salads, some pastries and various egg dishes, French toast and a monte cristo. The food we ordered was marginal at best. We ordered a starter that... More

This place has a great atmosphere. The food portions were big. It has a bar so you can sit and have some drinks before dinner. They had great tasting mojitos. The steak was juicey and tender. Its a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy the evening.
