Donato's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My wife ordered the salmon and bowtie pasta the flavor was excellent but the temperature was mediocre at best and she found several bones in the dish I had the Berkshire pork chop with risotto I ordered it medium well and it was cooked medium at best the risotto half was mushy half was crunchy but the demi glaze cranberry flavors went very well together overall for the prices of this restaurant the quality left a lot to be desired Chef Ramsay would not approve the server is the last line of defense I was disappointed she let these simple mistakes make it through to my table very disappointed
They have gone from the best veal parm in Pittsburgh to one of the worst. Oysters on the half shell were all torn up. Veal parm had very thick breading with thick tomato sauce over the cheese and the whole thing served over pasta. Chicken Piccata, instead of being made with pounded chicken breasts, was made with what looked like half a Cornish hen, with a very light sauce that did not stick to the meat. Service seemed confused and mediocre at best.
Excellent preparation of arugula and salmon although the accompanying tomato based vegetable medley, though very good, didn't seem to complement the seafood. Waiter's suggestions were helpful and accurate.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Venetian artwork , but was disappointed to see a door covering one of the paintings.
Che meraviglia! I went for lunch with a friend & fell in love with Donato's ,I needed to plan a anniversary dinner & I picked Donato's , best choice I could have made. Everyone tried something different , no one needed a doggie bag but me for 1/2 my cheese cake. I finished it the next day. No way my dog was getting it. Do yourself a favor and stop one time , you will return.
Comfortable dining experience, server was prompt and courteous and knew the menu and offered good suggestions. Not too noisy. We had a party of six and could easily carry on a conversation across the table. Meals were hot and well prepared. Veal chop, swordfish and pasta were excellent
This was our second visit and we were even more impressed than the first time. Everything from the host who greeted us and took us to our table, to our amazing waiter who remembered exactly everything we ordered, to the delicious, one of a kind food and delicious cocktails. Everything was simply amazing and we cannot wait to go back soon!
Very relaxed atmosphere. Waiter was very accommodating. We went to Donato's Restaurant using an anniversary gift certificate from our children. Further, we went with the intent of ordering our meals based off of their online menu list. However, upon arrival and seating we were informed that the menu for this particular day (Sunday) was limited or reduced from the online menu. The waiter saw that I was displeased and made every effort to accommodate my specific entree choice. He did so in a very cordial and timely manner. He also informed us that the online menu would be updated to avoid this mishap again. Please Note: This young man made sure that I received what I originally anticipated to order. Outstanding manners & willingness to appease us. Will go back again.
Thank you to Donato's for a great evening. Everything was wonderful. From the Hosts/Reception ...to the excellent service by Leah....and the food. We both enjoyed the Halibut special very much. My friend has difficulty walking the entire staff was so very helpful in helping us get in and out. I could not be more grateful. I have to say that it was one of our nicest dining experiences in several month. Thank you...again and again and again. Your kindness is appreciated more than you know.
Oysters on half shell were outstanding, fresh juicy. Tomato lobster bisque also terrific.
Entrees, one salmon one beef, were good but not fabulous. Salmon dry; beef fatty. Very nice dessert. Wine menu very good and very pricey; glass of wine no longer brought out in 187.5 ml container to show it was really a full glass.
After dinner drinks included $10 choices in brandy and port, but most were very expensive. Service OK but slow getting the bill to us. Nice and nicely maintained men's and ladies rooms.
Would have preferred to have no music on the loudspeakers, noise detracted from ambience -- would not have objected to really good soft dining music, but it wasn't.
Overall, a very nice dinner but at nearly $200 should have been better. We'll probably go again, but only as a special occasion.
Reviews where good. So we thought we would give it a try. Did not wish to go down town.
When we arrived. We where seated immediately. Good sign I thought.
Then our waiter came over. Very happy and enthusiastic person. Good sign #2, or so we thought.
The waiter forgot several things we ordered. Then when we asked another waitress to please help us. She told our waiter and I saw the look of who cares on his face. After a few minutes he did bring over our friends extra dressing. This happened with several other thing's through out the evening.
The appetizers where good. The main courses where also good. Notice I said good and not great. Definitely not the level of Capital grill or other places down town.
They where out of that nights special desert. (They where not packed so not sure how that happened.) So we got the chocolate cake and cheese cake. Very bland and tasted like a freezer.
First time in a long time we left only a 15 percent tip. It was earned I assure you.
In closing. There are much better places to eat. They will cost you a few more dollars. But you will leave much happier. So very disappointed with this place. We will not be back and will definitely will not recommend any one else to waste time and money coming here.
Go to Ruby Tuesday, the quality of food is about the same. This is a high end restaurant in name only these days.
