I ate here several times while staying at the hotel. For the most part the food was good and service very attentive. I didn't rate it excellent because one day I sat at the bar for a beer and the bartender was in a VERY bad mood and didn't seem to want to be at work. All other servers were... More

Dinner was very good. Lots of choices and very unique flavors! Breakfast is amazing! Omelet station unlike any other, homemade jams and jellies, plenty of choices. Delicious.

The Terrace Room is beautiful and the wait staff is well trained, professional and just friendly enough. The espresso is well prepared and presented and the wine is served at just the right temperature. I think though that I will not go back for dinner. I chose the Provencal Pasta which was gummy, over sauced, luke warm and featured mushy... More

Both times we have eaten here this calendar year, we have been disappointed. They are never busy so you will get a table. Menu has limited selections; wine list is very limited. I selected the Summer Pasta for my main course, which arrived warm and ....grew cold very quickly. There is absolutely no "wow factor"...yes it is stately decor, and... More

Beautiful dining room, regarded as one of the best in Pittsburgh. The service and food were very good, but the restaurant was strangely empty early on a Saturday evening. Despite the fact that the restaurant was empty and my wife and I were nicely dressed, we were shuttled into a remote table. Like many restaurants, it seems that the Terrace... More

We had dinner here on our last night at the Hotel. Ceilings are to be admired just like the lobby ceilings. Waitstaff was excellent. Food was really good. I will dine here again next time I am in the area. The restaurant is well suited for special occasion dining or even a large group event.

Went there for the breakfast buffet. Items presented were very appetizing except one day when the bananas were starting to get dark spots. Asked one of the servers about getting a waffle and he said it would need to be ordered separately. Came to find out later that it would have been included in the price. There is also a... More

We ate here twice while we were at the Omni William Penn and both the food and the service were first rate.

A handful of us went to the Terrace Room for lunch before a meeting in the hotel. We were seated promptly (it was the lunch hour, and the place was busy, but tables were available). However, we then had to wait nearly 10 minutes before a server arrived. We let him know that we were pressed for time, and if... More
