Six Penn Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
We are here for brunch before the Steelers game. I made reservations. They called to confirm the day before. We got there 15 minutes early. Our table was ready, but there was room in the rooftop, so we opted for that. The view was awesome. The menu was great. We had a hard time picking we to eat. So many good options! We had the seasonal omlete with potatoes (awesome!) and the Keystone breakfast. The mimosa was wonderful too. The waiter was great. Definitely a must go when in Pittsburgh!!
We have been to this restaurant a number of times, but admittedly not for a while. It had always been ok to good, never outstanding. It is frequently our choice before the Symphony. This time my fish fish was overcooked and dry and the entire plate was over salted. My husband's beef burgundy had very fatty meat. When you can do much better yourself at home why go to a particular restaurant? I would have sent my dish back but we were running late. I did speak with the manager as we left and he gave us his card for some consideration when we return. I doubt we will go back.
This was my second visit to the restaurant. On the first visit I was alone and the price didn't matter greatly as it was the right spot for that occasion. On this recent visit I brought a friend with me who felt that it was considerably over-priced for the amount of food served. I tended to agree. I was a bit embarrassed by the visit for that reason, not about the quality of food or service. Tom Reynolds
We chose Six Penn for it's location across from Heinz Hall. We were seated right away for an early dinner at 5:30. The wait staff was very attentive. I liked having a chilled water bottle left on the table, as well as bread with melted butter. We ordered an appetizer, that was delivered hot shortly after the bread. We both ordered the fish entre which was excellent. And we each had dessert. Overall, we were both very satisfied with the food and service. The portion sizes were adequate, but some may want them to be larger. I had a beer and mt wife had a glass of wine. Our total bill was $100, a little pricey, but with 3 courses and alcohol, not bad. I recommend Six Penn and would eat there again.
I bring friends to Sx Penn every Sunday for brunch before CLO. Food is good, well priced and not noisy like a bar. We all can talk and hear each other.
I missed fresh fruit instead of potatoes but you did have it this past weekend. The fruit cup is excellent
Lastly, Tom, the manager, is always hands- on and great at making us feel welcome
Disappointing. Seated at a tiny table for 2 and practically rubbed elbows with the table beside us although there were many empty larger tables. My wife's steak was excellent. I told the waiter I wasn't a fan of zucchini, and could my primavera be prepared without it. He said he thought it could. There was more zucchini than any other vegetable. Bartender downstairs after dinner seemed to forget to include spirits in our drinks. For $100 dinner for two, I expect better. We won't be back.
We were not told of a featured salad or appetizer.....heard about it from the table beside us.
We had to ask for the bread. Our dinners took an unacceptable time to receive. The 2 tables beside us got their food long before us. Ordered a vegetable without a sauce and it came with a sauce. 1 dinner was only warm not hot. We were never asked about having dessert or coffee. We had to ask for the check to make our show on time. Our waitress knew we were attending a show. Poor service......didn't enjoy the meal.
Helpful staff from beginning to end. We aren't big eaters so splitting a meal is something we do a lot...they were extremely gracious accommodating and more than willing, at no extra 'plate' charge. Excellent meal recommended by the wait staff as one of their long term meals...lamb and homemade pasta...delicious! Next time maybe we'll allow more time and check out roof dining.
What a disappointment. We went for Sunday brunch and the menu was very limited. My father asked for the lunch menu and was told "no."
Our table of six waited for nearly 45 minutes for our food. Others around us were seated after us and served before us. And it is NOISY. My uncle (who is hard of hearing) could not participate in conversation. There was so much ambient noise that he simply sat back and looked around.
I had the soup of the day (tomato bisque) and house salad. The soup was decent, the salad dressing was great. My husband ordered soup and wedge salad. It was the least impressive wedge salad I've ever seen. The wedge was falling apart, and all it had was bleu cheese dressing. No tomatoes, no bacon, nothing. Sad.
When making our reservation, they asked if we were celebrating anything special. I told them we were celebrating my 15 year anniversary. At the conclusion of the meal, we were given a free piece of blueberry cheese cake. It was decadent and fabulous. Unfortunately, since it took so long to receive our food, we didn't have time to savor and enjoy the dessert. We quickly scarfed it down and headed to the Benedum for the show.
The only saving grace was the location. It is in the theater district, so you can walk to the local theaters. We won't be back.
Service was great and very friendly. My husband had the Beef Bourginion (sp??) and really enjoyed it. I had the seared halibut - unfortunately it was just okay. Fish was a little overcooked and flavor-wise the dish was pretty uninspired. Would recommend the pretzel bites. Restaurant was busy but seemed to handle getting people served in a timely fashion.
I took my 6 year old daughter here before seeing a show at the Benedum. The website does not indicate that they only serve the Brunch menu on Sundays, to the exclusion of the regular lunch menu. They also do not have a kids menu. The prices are very high for what you get. And the food is average at best. The bacon that came with my meal was so fatty it was inedible. And my daughter's entree was literally 2 pancakes served with nothing else-for $14. I should have known something was amiss when reservations were so easy to come by.
Although the food was delicious the online menu did not match the actual menu. I was happy with their GF options and they have an extensive wine list. The big disappointment was the service.
It took a significant amount of time to order our drinks and meal. Then took time for drinks to be served. I would be more understanding if it was busy but it was a light night.
My expectations from the website were higher than received. We sat in the roof area and that was good. The food just didn't cross that next level. It was okay, nothing that I couldn't find somewhere else. The service was a bit too lax for my taste. Our server disappear for 20-30 minutes. This was not a bad locations. Just many an off night. Average experience.
Even though I made a reservation a few weeks ago on Open Table we were seated in a far corner of the restaurant in what is uaully a private room. We walked by many empty tables to get there. The food was overly salty and not worth the price. Also the wine selection was poor. Finally we said we were in a hurry to go to a show but the waitress said we would have plenty of time for dessert. 15 mins later we had to complain to the manager to get our desserts. They did comp them as we took them to go. I was disappointed in the whole experience.
I ordered the Pork Gnoccho and was sorely disapppointed. At $26 the entree was small, which is okay if flavorful but it wasn't. In addition, it was not that crowded when we went but noise level was high.
The oil and bread served after ordering was nice though.
The food and service was out of this world for a dinner before a show. I had the halibut which was perfect and my son had the pork shank which he said was as good as a meal he had on Germany. The service was great, not hurried but respectful of getting to the show on time. I did not think this little corner restaurant provided such a good dining experience.
