Good food but not great. It is a nice atmosphere. The salads are pretty good. The menu does not have a lot of options

It was Friday night and we were looking for a bar to grab a drink or two. Found this spot with seats at the bar. Well we found out why. We were quickly greeted by the first bartender, which was nice, but then he never came back. After a while the other bartender did stop by and apologized but then... More

Worked with Liz on arranging a get together for my 50th birthday. From our initial meeting in October until the actual event in November, she could not have been more accommodating. The wait staff was on point the entire evening, from the pouring of the first drink during cocktail hour all the way up until the last guest departed after... More

I'm not sure why the other reviews are poor. We walked in at about 5:30 on a Friday night because the place looked nice and is a Hilton dining network member - bonus hotel points. :-). Even though we didn't have a reservation, they were nice to us and seated us right away. The crab and avocado appetizer was fantastic,... More

Very sad to be greeted so off-handedly, when we were FINALLY greeted, after standing serval minutes and trying to make eye-contact with many servers and other staff walking around the nearly empty place. It was a Saturday evening, about 6pm, I guess. We had heard great things, but it was not to be. When we were finally greeted we were... More

First, the food is very good - maybe not up to previous experiences but still good. However, the service was horrible. The din of managing the servers spilled out into the dining room to a point where it was an annoying. The server was clueless (seriously), servers kept hitting my wife's chair with serving 'saw-horses' without apology, we were over... More

I have to agree with other reviewers who previously loved this restaurant and feel it has gone downhill. We travel to Pittsburgh once a year for a Steelers game and would always eat one meal at Sonoma and sometimes stop in for a glass or two of wine as well. In the past the staff was knowledgeable and could make... More

Visiting Pittsburgh to meet up with old friends on a Fridayand this restaurant was selected by one friend who lives in the area. Ambience is lovely, server was friendly and knowledgeable. We started with wine and found a good California selection in the lower price range. A cheese and charcuterie selection for the table came next. While the selection was... More
