I have eaten at the terrace a dozen times in the last 8 months. I always get the Salmon Salad for lunch and sometimes get the gumbo which is a nice complement.

Expensive lunch but worth every penny for the elegant experience. Leaving the hotel wanted to experience their dining room, Food excellent. Was traveling with family and children and they made us feel very comfortable. The man in charge of the dining room could lighten up a little. Waiters couldn't do enough for you. Very enjoyable lunch.

It was a little pricey, but very good. I got the buffet. There was plenty of hot and cold items to choose from. Everything I ate (omelet, sausage patty, sausage link, bacon, oatmeal, biscuits) was very good. My wife had French toast which she said was very tasty. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.

What a treat to come into an "old dame" hotel that has kept itself so well. The lobby area is special but even better is the restaurant. Looking down on you is Pittsburgh history with General Forbes announcing the victory of the French and Indian war! Were there for a terrific buffet at breakfast and were not disappointed. Omelets to... More

Beautiful, "ladies who lunch" atmosphere, classic "old school" menu coupled with more modern style dishes, good service.

Four lady friends treated themselves to a super lunch at this picture perfect restaurant. Reuben was awesome as was a salmon sandwich (with their own fried chips)! There was also a Bloody Mary bar which was a great value and offered lots of tasty treats for anyone's drink! An added bonus was that the restaurant was so festive as it... More
