Six Penn Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
This was our third time at Six Penn and our last. Our first two experiences weren't great in terms of food and noise level, but it's directly across the street from Heinz Hall where we attend many events throughout the year. This time my husband ordered spaghetti. The food was luke warm but the real problem was the spaghetti was dry and stuck together so he could lift the entire wad off the plate with his fork. When our waiter saw that, without a word, he took the plate away! My husband finished the cheese platter we ordered as a appetizer and couldn't order another meal because we had 10 minutes until our program at Heinz Hall. We ordered our food at 6:45, it arrived an 7:35. Goodbye, Six Penn.
Our waiter, Tim, was just the right level of attentive. If we needed something he was never far away, but he wasn't constantly interrupting our meal or our conversation to ask how everything was. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. All in all, we made a good choice for dinner on our way to the theater!
My husband and I chose Six Penn Kitchen for supper before attending the Lewis Black show at Heinz Hall based on reviews and proximity to the venue. Staff was friendly and efficient from our arrival through the entire experience. Matt was fun and answered all of our questions perfectly! Food was wonderful, and dietary requests were honored without hassle. Many options for varying appetites. Only negative was noise level, likely due to size and open layout.
We've been to Six Penn numerous times and it has been decent, albeit rather overpriced. This time was AWFUL. We ordered two mixed drinks, a half bottle of wine, and two appetizers each (mussels and salad for me, onion soup and tuna tartar for my husband). The mussels were very small, hardly worth the effort. The onion soup never came. After waiting about half an hour, my husband told the waiter to forget it. Salad and tuna were OK, but overpriced for portion size. Bill was over $100 and that was after they knocked off 20 for the lousy service. The manager was a jerk--perfunctory apology as he whizzed by our table. The whole experience changed our opinion of Six Penn--we won't be back.
Visited on Wednesday evening pre-theater.First, through Open Table, I could NOT get a 5:30pm reservatin and yet we were there at 5:30pm and the restaurant was certainly not busy. My husband and I both ordered from the house specialities: I had the roasted chicken with a cranberry and orange chutney (delish and ample quantity) served with a corn bread pudding stuffing (again very tasty), French green beans and covered with a mushroom marsala. I have never met a chicken I didn't love BUT this dish was a unique and complex combination of flavors and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband got the pork shank which he enjoyed but commented that the serving was more than he could manage. The portions were large and we were glad that we'd NOT ordered an appetizer, nor salad. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and helped us to navigate the menu and make our choices. Prices were reasonable and overall, we deemed the experience good value.
This is usually our go to place before the opera and we've had good service and good food. This time was so disappointing and dreadful . We were seated, ordered our meals and waited and waited. Tables seated after us got their food, ate and left and we still hadn't been served. Our server seemed to be staying away and we had to ask other servers to find him. The bar manager and manager finally appeared and we finally served after waiting for an hour and ten minutes. We had to eat fast but we made the Opera. It will be awhile before we go back....if we do.
Dined here prior to concert at Heinz Hall. We were seated at an upstairs table. The table was very long between my date and myself, so we had a hard time hearing each other in conversation. The décor was dated; lighting lacked ambience. Our waiter and staff were great! Food good, not great.
Wonderful food and service. Great and interesting food options...the roasted Brussels sprouts are unbelievable as is the pork shank. Service is always top drawer. They are customer oriented as it should be for a restaurant. Everything was perfect, could not have been better. If you have not tried this restaurant, you need to make reservations soon!
The location of Six Penn Kitchen makes it the perfect spot to eat before the Symphony, the Bennedum or the Pittsburgh Public Theater. Always courteous servers, nice selection of special offerings, comfortable seating and good, HOT food. Who could ask for more.
Not as good as in the past. Waiter was wonderful, though. Calamari a bit undercooked. Fried Brussels sprouts overcooked. Entrees and dessert were average and not memorable. The proximity to the Cultural District is the only saving grace. Next visit to a show, Six Penn will be a last resort if everywhere else is filled.
Repeat Visit Well Worth It! Before attending the symphony, we stopped here for dinner. The artichoke appetizer was divine!!! For dinner my daughter ordered the duck cassoulet and I had more simple fare, a dinner salad and a side of macaroni and cheese. Whatever you desire, Six Penn will make it great. The drinks are great, the service is wonderful, and I can't think of a single negative thing. Go there and enjoy yourselves!
Service was (too) slow. Cathy wasn't good at multitasking. Each thing she did required a unique trip to her server station. Bring the check? Sure! Off to her server station. Ten minutes later, return with the check. Off to another table. Ten minutes later, return for the check. Takes it to server station. Ten minutes later, returns with the charge slip. And so the night went. Two hour meal including the last half hour waiting to pay. Brought mini wine carafes and poured them into our wine glasses. Left the empty carafes on the table. Someone else's job to clear them I guess.
The chicken paprikash was way too spicy even though the menu doesn't say so. Even my boyfriend couldn't eat one bite even though he likes to eat spicy. But after telling the waitress she brought me a different dish which was quite good, saying that she had already told the manager to take it off the menu because so many people have had the same problem.
Overall it was good, but not worth the high prices.
