Six Penn Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
The food was quite expensive ($21 burger ...
The food was quite expensive ($21 burger and $28 pasta) which is fine if the food is top notch but in this case it was not. The food was closer to late hours Eat N Park than of a higher end restaurant. The burger was very bland and the others in my party had similar comments on their pasta, salmon, etc. I would never go back.
For the record, my party had meals at 6 Penn Ave restaurants over a few days and the other 5 were excellent, especially in comparison to Six Penn Kitchen.

I have been to Six Penn a few times and the food/service has always been great! This last time was not that great. When my friend and I came in, they happily let us know that they just changed their menu that day. So we were excited to try the new menu. It was awful! Burnt flavorless and really really terrible! Our server was great however, he was very apologetic and wanted us to order another dinner on him. We declined and left. I think I'll wait until they figure the menu out before I decide to return. Hope they figure it out soon. If this continues, they will not be around long.

The food was average at best. Had to send back the tuna tartare as it had skin and cartilage on the pieces, making it inedible. To his credit, the manager acknowledged and apologized for the problem and tried to make it right.

Not many options for vegetarians, so I had the spinach ravioli which tasted like packaged food and warmed up in microwave, plus the garlic was completely over powering taste. My daughter had the salad which came with an apple cider vinegar dressing that was also over powering with cider vinegar to the point of being uneatable. The restaurant was not busy so the waiter seemed to be annoyed that we were not ready to order our food and kept coming over every 2 minutes to see if we were ready to order yet, then once we got our food we never saw her till we wanted our check.

The food was extremely poor quality and over-priced. The breakfast sandwich is turkey lunch meat on white wonder bread. It was good but not for the price. My fiancé had steak and eggs and said it was the worst he has had and the steak had not flavor and was over cooked. I was stunned at how cheap looking and tasting the food was. I will never be back.

The food and service are fine. However, they really need to get their fly situation under control. My colleague and I, as well as those dining near us, were dealing with numerous flies throughout the entire meal. It wasn't something I am accustom to in one of the city's nicer restaurants.

The scallops may have been the best I have ever had at a restaurant. The pizza appetizer was good but 6 slices is large even for a two way appetizer. The drinks were a little pricey but that is the case in the city. We will likely return when we are in the cultural district,

I've eaten here before, but not frequently. This time, a friend and I met for dinner before a Pirates game.
Most of my rating for this visit is based on my previous meals, because I never got the meal I had ordered this time. Thirty minutes after ordering, the wrong meal was brought to me. I sent it back.
Our server said the correct meal would be brought out shortly, but twenty minutes later, I was still waiting. Meanwhile, my dining companion had finished his dinner and we wanted to leave for the start of the game.
That was the bad news. To be fair, though, the manager and the server were very apologetic about the mixup. They comped my friend's meal and asked that we come back again to give them a chance to do better.
I may do so, but not when I'm planning to attend a game or concert afterwards.

We dined at Six Penn before a show at Heinz Hall - this restaurant's location is great for attending cultural district events. We started with the bacon croquettes which were delicious. We both had a burger (one off the menu and one was a special). I like the manageable size of the burgers, and they were cooked to the perfect temperature. However, the meat was over seasoned - WAY too salty. We shared a dessert which was also good. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Bar service, however, was very slow and drinks are super expensive. The appetizer menu is awesome; next time, I think we'll make dinner out of a few appetizer selections.

my wife had a quick dinner before going to Heinz Hall to see the PSO. I had a salmon salad special - which was just so-so. The salmon was not quite what I expected - it almost seemed as though it was scraped from a can of salmon (does such a thing exist) and the salmon was placed at the two ends of the plate.
My wife had the chicken, for $24 - which is rather exorbitant. She had about 3 bites and didnt like it
We've not had real good luck with our food here. Although when we last stopped at Six Penn before another PSO concert, we just had some appetizers/munchies - the pizza, the mac and cheese and they were quite good

I had made an online reservation for a certain time, however I had to call and change the time. When we got to the restaurant, there was no reservation, the hostess could not find it. The waiter was nice however, when he told us about the sirloin special, he came back and told us he was wrong and it included radishes and beets. So we changed to the gnocci plate. It was very rich. We tried the dessert which was the best part of the entire meal. My mother was very disgusted with everything. We also thought that for the amount and type of food, it was too pricey.

We arrived late due to traffic. The hostess said that was OK but seemed very confused, while trying to handle customers and phone at the same time. Our table was Ok. The service was mediocre at best and the food was fair. My wife ordered soup which she never received.
We have been to this venue before and were very pleased. They have gone down hill

OUR WAITER WAS MISINFORMED OF THE SPECIAL FOR THE EVENING. I ORDERED IT AND IT WAS NOT ANYTHING LIKE WE WERE TOLD. I WAS OFFERED ANOTHER ENTREE BUT TOO LATE AS WE HAD TICKETS FOR A SHOW. A COMPLIMENTARY GLASS OF WINE WAS WHAT I GOT IN RETURN. NO APOLOGY FROM MANAGEMENT.
Unfortunately, there was a very large pa ...
Unfortunately, there was a very large party also seated at the same time we were. We waited 15 minutes to be greeted/served and then another 15 minutes for our wine. The food was good, but the noise level and timing of service will prevent us from returning.

Restaurant was very loud. Tables are very close together. Team waitstaff concept not working well - dirty salad plates not yet removed when entree delivered. (It had been a while.) Food was good but not outstanding. New places in theater district are better.

Nice surprise - menu isn't overwhelming with choices but they do a great job with the items offered. Went prior to a show with 3 others; we shared a few appetizers including the brie, calamari and prosciutto pizza. Everything was very tasty; however, nothing was hot. Items were lukewarm at best. I didn't mind so much but others in my group would have preferred their food to arrive hot. (not an unreasonable request I suppose). Our serve, Adam, was thoughtful and knowledgeable.

We love SixPenn. Food is excellent. Service this last time was slower than normal, which is unusual compared to past visits. We didn't really get a chance to enjoy our meals, as we had theater tickets and had to hurry. Overall, though, this is hands down our favorite place to go downtown, and typically is our only choice.

I really like Six Penn. The hostesses and servers couldn't be more gracious and competent. I have mobility problems which they take into account. The food is good but sometimes I feel the chef is trying too hard to make it a foodie restaurant and overlooks how pleasing a few simple fare items can be: juicy chicken, a good meatloaf. My biggest complaint is the noise level. It appears to me that the restaurant was designed to be that way because there are few things to absorb sound. Maybe the addition of a few design features to get the sound down at least a little bit would appeal to an older crowd while still providing enough energy and vibrancy to appeal to a younger crowd.

Overall, our experience was good, not very good or excellent. We had the Sunday brunch - the bignettes were fabulous; the entrees were just ok; the eggs benefit was exceptional but the quiche was small, cold, and the crust had fallen off - not very good for the price; the omelette was also just average; the noise level was too high - we couldn't hear each other talk.

We were spending an evening in Pittsburgh with our sons before they flew back to their respective schools the next morning and we wanted to have a special meal to complete their visit. Six Penn Kitchen delivered in a big way. From the minute we stepped into the restaurant where we were met with a very friendly hostess who showed interest in the schools both boys are attending to the great meal. Everything was fabulous, especially the pretzel bites. Our service was a little slow at first but she got better. Great Pittsburgh experience!

I'll make this short....lunch with a friend...reuben that i've been craving...tasteless...VERY little meat and very fatty....friend had dagwood (special of the day) vegetables in the middle which made it impossible to pick up...very little meat there as well...although french fries were good...
Waitress came half way though the meal..asked how things were, I simply said "I'm not impressed with the reuben..she said nothing and walked away....NOT a place I would go back to...disappointing
