Six Penn Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

There wasn't much of an experience to be had here. We ordered our drinks and food, less than 10 minutes later we were eating.
It felt rushed, not favorable to a relaxed Sunday where we just wanted to hang out and drink mimosas and bloody Mary's. This place didn't give us that vibe.
Also, no valet parking is available, and parking is very limited, or $8 to park your car in the garage across the street
6 Penn Kitchen, one of Eat 'n Park's for ...
6 Penn Kitchen, one of Eat 'n Park's forays into "upscale" is the perfect choice for "before theater" dining. Situated "katty Korner" from Heinz Hall and walking distance to anything in the Cultural District, it is an under-rated and reasonably priced gem! They know, kitchen and wait staff that you want...need... to be out before the curtain rises, and they get you out, without skimping on the quality of the food. The Charcuterie platter is big and varied enough to satisfy everyone at the table (not true in other fancy schmancy big presentation/skimpy portion places) and some of the signature dishes will have you returning again and again. I especially love, and almost always order, the crackling pork shank, with sauerkraut mashed potatoes. I've even tried to duplicate it at home (pork shanks are hard enough to find as it is) but I admit 6 Penn does it better. Perfect choice before a concert, symphony, play or show!

We were going to a concert and had an hour to enjoy our meal. Our waitress asked us if we were going to the concert, made sure our drinks and food arrived in a timely manner so we could enjoy the meal and not feel rushed. Food was excellent, waitress made sure we had the check so we could be at the concert on time. We have eaten out at other restaurants before a show who did not care and kept us waiting, which just adds to the stress.

My third trip, is consistent with the other two. Six Penn is decent, and the service attentive, if programmed. If called to traditional flavors and presentation, this could satisfy. For this writer, there are far more interesting venues and plates to be explored in close proximity.

My daughter and four year old granddaughter were attending a children's theater performance in town and so we made a 12:45 reservation at Six Penn. We were disappointed to find that they only serve a brunch menu on Sundays. My daughter is allergic to eggs. Unfortunately there was a home Steeler game and the restaurant was very crowded and noisy. We knew we would never get into another restaurant because of the crowds, so we stayed. My daughter had salad and I had the quiche, which was fabulous. The staff was very accomodating and overall experience was fine.

Although we arrived 15 minutes late, we were greeted warmly. (I did call to say that we would be late.) We had wine and several appetizers - cheese plate, meat plate and baked brie - all were delicious. Our server was attentive. I always enjoy eating at Six Penn and have never had a bad meal or experience.

Was not bowled over by the menu or the service this time. We were there for brunch, had no 'lunch' items on menu. Previously only ate dinner here. We waited for quite a while to get coffee, and never did get promised scones. Food was good, but breakfast food isn't something that you can screw up too badly. coffee refills were non-existent. gave up and drank water (that was thankfully left on table). Was not a packed dining room; so not sure why attentiveness wasn't there as it had been in past visits. will stick to dinner at this place in future.

I was entertaining friends from Philadelphia who are city dwellers & love good food. Six Penn scored a perfect 10 with them. We were seated in a booth by a window, perfect for catching the city vibe. Frank, our waiter, took great care of us all throughout the meal. I had the The pork shank.... amazing. My guests all commented on the portion size, that was plenty for sharing. The other selections on the table were lamb & chicken. All delicious bites . Drinks & wine choices were perfect compliments to our meals. Bread pudding & coffee made for another delicious Six Penn experience.

The moment we walked in I was happy we chose Six Penn! The bartender was very helpful and made great cocktail choices plus she was a great mixologist! Our sever Cheryl was very knowledgeable of the menu and also very friendly and accommodating.
Dinner was amazing and everyone was friendly and I will definitely be back!

Six Penn is probably being overlooked with all of the new restaurants opening in downtown Pittsburgh, but it doesn't deserve to be. The menu, consisting of many local ingredients, is superb. The selection varies with the seasons, but I haven't eaten anything there that I wouldn't eat again.. and again. My latest choice was the duck - done to perfection. I highly recommend Six Penn as a classic Pittsburgh restaurant that never fails to provide an enjoyable meal.

Hostess tried to seat us at a small table, when there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant. We requested a bigger table & had a hard time getting them to agree. They stated they would be busy in an hour for other reservations. It was clear our reservation didn't matter. My husband's steak was cold & he sent it back & it came back "cold" again, & we were sitting next to the kitchen! Just a horrible experience! And not cheap. When we were asked by the manager how everything was, we mentioned the experience of trying to get a larger table we were made to feel we were wrong & that day was the hostess' first day, so we shouldn't expect her to know how to do her job. We would not recommend Six Penn to our friends.

Service and ambience was great. The cheese platter was very good. The parmesan fries were frozen fries with some parmesan melted on top. Chocolate pate for dessert was amazing! Drinks were pretty pricey. All and all, it was worth the try.

The service was very slow and the place was not crowded. It took over 20 minutes just to get our drinks before we ordered. Then the waiter entirely missed one of the drinks. The food was good but everything took way too much time.

Amount of food to the price charged was not in line. The server was not friendly, seemed "put out" by questions surrounding wine list. He didn't check on us when food was delivered. Bad night or not, not a good first impression for a first time visit.

We sined on a very busy Saturday evening and the work from the open kitchen looked professional and aiming to please. Quality of entrees was B+ but the portion were small. Overall, we would dine here again. Disappointed to see they closed at 2:30 on the day of a Steelers home game!

Our server was Zack, he was outstanding! The service was friendly and well paced. We started with the polenta appetizer, it was yummy! I had the scallops entrée with the squid ink pasta, had never had squid ink pasta before, dinner was very good. My dinner companion had one of the dinner specials, a lamb dish and she liked it very well. We finished with the spiced tiramisu, just right!

Preshow dinner with a friend and had a wonderful experience. From the time we walked in, to when we left, our server was wonderful (I believe her name was Jennifer). She left no stone unturned to see that our needs were met and that everything was to our satisfaction.

Service was outstanding Cheryl is one of the best Servers I have ever dealt with and I dine out a lot and at high end restaurants. She is a very customer-centric person. Tom too has a personality plus and makes you feel like you dine there every day. It is one of my favorite downtown restaurants

Disappointing! My mussels arrived lukewarm. They were sent back and arrived undercooked and I specifically requested well cooked mussels. We ordered a cheese board to share and the waitress did not name the various cheeses. Sloppy service, I will not return.

We visited on 10/8/2016.
The service was slow & impersonal. The food was a joke. Ordered the Rib Eye for one meal and scallops for the second. I honestly thought the steak knife needed sharpening until I tried to chew a piece of the ribeye. Literally pulled three unchewable bites from my mouth and set the rest of the steak aside. It was uneatable. The scallop meal had 4 quarter sized scallops and some pasta. Good flavor, but I can get better/bigger restaurant worthy scallops from Krogers.
Oh yeah... they can't make a Margarita either. I'm assuming they filled it with foaming sour mix instead of the correct ingredients.
I've had really good meals at Six Penn in the past. This one was $93 (+tip) of disappointment. I will not risk going back.
We changed our reservation from Sonoma Grill to 6 Penn for my wife's birthday. We are professional couple in our early fifties. I was embarrassed and mad I myself for switching.

We celebrated our anniversary here during a weekend trip to pburgh to see the steelers/jets game. The atmosphere was great, the wait staff friendly, and the food choices numerous! Also, they had many gluten free options, which I really appreciated. We felt that the price was fair for the quality.
