Met a friend here while I was in town for business. We had a great dinner and took advantage of happy hour prices for drinks and appetizers. Pear cosmopolitan was yummy and we both enjoyed the buffalo chicken dip. Service was good.

Always good food, drinks, and service. I love that they take reservations, too. They even have a good brunch before Steelers games. Not every restaurant opens early enough, but they always do.

Small space. Limited menu. Drinks were good but not what I expected from an establishment known for their martinis. Would not visit again.

We weren't sure what to expect when we walked in as the crowd was fairly light. We had early reservations and there wasn't much happening in town, but we were pleasantly surprised. It is a relatively small space and about 50% is filled by a...More

I had dinner there last Thursday and I did not see a private room. You might want to give them a call.

Yes, we not only accept them, we encourage them. We usually fill up about a week in advance so try to call as early as possible. Call 412-255-0525
