Six Penn Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
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 food was excellent! My only negative comment was the amount of time it took to get our food. I realize that each meal was made to order but we had tickets to a 1:00 show. we didn't get out of the restaurant until 12:50 and it was not from eating slow. Other than this I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience
Location in the Cultural District made it seem like a natural choice to eat before a show. Arrived plenty early and were seated with a reservation right away. There were plenty of open tables in the restaurant, but they chose to cram us in a little table between other diners. I asked to be seated elsewhere for some more room and for more private conversation...but was told that all other tables were for a party. The other tables were never seated for a party and I watched lots of other couples come in and get a more desirable table. So scratch a nice quiet dinner off the list and any chance of the staff listening to requests.
We made it very clear that we had show tickets and were assured that this would not be a problem. We ordered quickly and appetisers arrived relatively quickly. We then sat and watched as other tables around us received their appetisers, salads and then main dish while we were ignored with our empty glasses and empty plates.
Eventually, I flagged down our waiter who had been ignoring us and asked for the status of our meals. He didn't check in the kitchen, just told us they were coming soon and walked away. 5 minutes later they arrived, and we had to hurry through our meal to make our show. You'd think he would be quick with the check, but we had to flag him once again. As the final insult, every table around us received a signature chocolate mint with their bill, but we were again snubbed.
The food was decent, nothing to crow about, but the service convinced me never to visit again.
Met friends for a brunch before a show. Alice in Wonderland was also being performed, so there were many kids there which made it a bit loud. My husband doesn't eat cheese or sauces, the waitress assured us that the cook would be able to work around his dietary choices, which they did. Good food, close to Heinz Hall.
Brussels sprouts appetizer is amazing! The portions are u usually large for sharing. The lamb bolognese was rich and rivaled an Italian restaurant. The scallop special wasn't my favorite. Most chefs like to leave scallops under cooked and it just doesn't bring out all the flavor in my opinion. The risotto with it was a bit bland. Otherwise awesome dinner.
I was extremely disappointed in the menu. I have some dietary restrictions and always check the menu on line before making reservations. The menu was shortened because of Valentines Day and their was so little that I could eat. I ordered the Chicken Paprish with the recommendation of the waiter. It was extremely spicy with paprika and the chicken was dry. I never complain about a meal.... usually don't run into that, but I should have sent it back. I only ate a little bread and oil. I didn't care for the salad I had ordered also. We will not return!
I've been going to Six Penn since the restaurant first opened. The noise level during this past visit was almost unbearable. If I'd known that the upstairs dining area was open, would have requested to sit there.
My meal was mediocre at best. A big disappointment. The fried gnocchis were tasteless blobs. the accompanying beef didn't compliment the gnocchis at all. Two completely dissimilar dishes on one unappetizing plate.
I'm hoping that my next experience will be a better one.
Six Penn never disappoints. As part of a group that has season tickets at the O'Reilly, we dine downtown regularly. We like to try different places and after a disappointing night will gravitate back to Six Penn to restore our faith. The waiters are excellent about recommending a meal or wine for our picky group. Unlike a lot of places downtown, the tables are nicely spaced out. We like to sit upstairs where it is less noisy. Save room for a dessert. I won't make specific recommendations because all of us have eaten many different items and always enjoyed. Enjoy!
I could not get checked in when I arrived. They host actually took the woman behind me and seated her first. I tried a seconds time to check in and was ignored. Someone else from our party had to check us in. Once seated, it was extremely noisy. We could barely have a conversation. The food was mediocre and not a great value for the price. We have been to Six Penn many times but won't be going back a time soon. There are many other options in the area that have better customer service and more cost effective.
Settled for this place when we couldn't get a dinner reservation somewhere else. We were seated upstairs and it lacked ambience. It was quiet and nice for dinner conversation, however. Food was just okay. It wasn't bad, but no one at the dinner table was really thrilled with their dinner. They charged $6 to share a dinner; that was a surprise. I wouldn't go back. But it worked given we couldn't get into the other 3 places we were trying for.
