Sonoma has changed their image to a new restaurant called Le Lyonnais. They are now serving french food of the style of the Lyon area of France. The service was extremely good with consistent attention to our needs. The food was unique and tasty. The standard menu was slightly limited, with good specials, but, as usual, the specials were expensive.... More

My college roommates were in town for our annual Girl's weekend. It was the first time they had been to downtown Pittsburgh and we planned to have dinner and go to the Symphony. I booked a table at Sonoma Grille for 6pm because I had been there 5 or 6 times before and had really great experiences. This time was... More

To be honest, the eight of us were coming from the convention center and only had an hour for dinner. Sonoma Grille said that they could accommodate our request for sandwiches/burgers and have us out in an hour. They seated us in the bar area. A long story short, in an hour they were only beginning to serve, a good... More

We had reservations for the above at 6:15 PM in order to have plenty of time to eat prior to an 8 PM Theatre engagement. We were properly seated at 6:15 PM. At the time the hostess told us to make sure we told our waiter that we needed to be out in a timely fashion for the 8 PM... More

The location is very good. Close to the Courtyard Marriott & the Benedum is a couple of block walk. We had the salmon with a maple glaze. The Sonoma salad was hit. For dessert we had the Salted Carmel Creme Brulee & the Chocolate mousse. Wasn't as crazy about the mousse, but the dinner was excellent. Sonoma Grille is now... More

We had a reservation at 6:15 for an 8:00 show, We waited at the hostess stand along with about 8 other people for the Hostess for about 10 minutes. The Hostess seemed to wander around the restaurant without regard to people waiting to be seated. Once seated, we sat for another 10-15 minutes until a waitress took our order. We... More

Sonoma Grille used to be one of our favorite restaurants before going to a show in town. However, our last visit on Feb. 4 was quite a disappointment! To start off, the service was terrible. We ordered wine, but never received it. The soup and vegetables were bland. The tempura shrimp and salmon were okay, although there were only 2... More

Had a lovely dinner here. Our server, Eric, was friendly and helpful without being overdone. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The manager, also, was very friendly and attentive. The basket of bread was fresh from the oven and tasted homemade. Overall, a relaxing, delicious dinner.

My wife and I met 2 other couples for dinner last night. We were disappointed immensely. The service was at the bar was slow despite having 5 bartenders at a medium size bar.

A friend and I were really looking forward to enjoying lunch to celebrate a special occasion. We've had many pleasant experiences on prior visits. The great ambiance still exists; plenty of space between tables where one can easily engage in a conversation without disturbing other patrons. We were looking forward to the outstanding mushroom broth based french onion soup to... More
