Awesome place! Great food, great atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Stopped in with a large group after a trip to the PGH Glass Center. Good people!
Truly terrible, like everything around it. Stick to the city.
awful and dirty. health code violations needs to be shut down!
I went in to ask some questions about a statue my wife's grandmother, the previous owner of the West End Cafe, had purchased years earlier. Before I could even finish asking the questions, the clerk (possibly the owner) interrupted me, stated he couldn't help me in a very rude and aggravated tone of voice, stated that he was not an appraiser, and walked out of the room leaving me standing there. I wasn't looking for an appraisal, and wanted to ask him about some of the other things he had there, but he never figured that out because he was too rude and full of himself. I will never go in there again. I am an attorney and real estate broker, but he didn't know that because it was my day off and he didn't bother to find out anything about me. AVOID this business at all costs!!!
went there for the first time last night...I've been so unhappy with my haircut for over a year now and I saw him on the Pittsburgh Today show, so I decided to try him. I felt very comfortable in the salon...he and his employees are very friendly and welcoming. He did a fabulous job on my hair!!!! I am finally happy again with the cut...I couldn't be happier. I will definitely be going back...I can't say enough good things about that salon!!! :)
Food okay, bad customer service! The guy at the desk is arrogant and full of himself, needs classes on how to treat people with respect especially women. The same man happened to be behind the desk and the attendant the couple of times I visited. Boy! he was rude. Even though I liked the food I will never go back there again.

My fiance and I have driven by El Campesino restaurant in Robinson Town Center a handful of times on our countless shopping trips and had always wanted to visit there. All of our friends had gone there many times and kept bragging about how good the restaurant was. So we finally decided to give it a try..
Customer satisfaction? Ichiban Hibachi Steakhouse Robinson gets a 1 because there ain't no zero's. I wanted to celebrate a milestone birthday for my wife at Ichiban Robinson thinking the table side chef would be fun. We are a small family so I stopped a week in advance to ask about their birthday package and to make sure 6-8 adults would be acceptable for a private table. No problem! Cake, photo, candle and music included in package! Told me reservations every half hour and if early would seat in advance as long as we understood chef is on schedule. Perfect!
Here's what we got: Large room with many Hibachi's mostly empty, except our table which already was occupied. I said to hostess, "this is a reserved birthday party, for a private table, what's going on?" She looked at me as if I'm nuts and says "You don't have enough people for party, you only have 6" I said, "but, but...." to her back as she turned and just walked off. I didn't want a scene, but our group is scattered to the four winds, just together for this occasion. I didn't really want "party crashers" especially this party, ergo my reservation and package purchase.
Not wanting to start my wife's birthday with a scene, I followed our hostess back to the lobby and found I was talking to a stone wall. This lady could care less. No management solution here in the inn regardless of what they promised a week ago.
Normally we love meeting strangers and dining with them, and dealing with their kids, but this was a special occasion planned for in advance. We had gifts and wanted to talk old times and wanted to honor my wife getting, eh, really old!
Back at the table, as I looked around the otherwise empty room, the hostess now sat a party of 6 who remained a party of 6 all evening. That started my blood boiling and provided motivation for this review.
The "birthday cake" package I purchased turned out to be two scoops of ice cream with a tilted candle in a small cup given to our "honored guest" after first giving complimentary ice cream to the "strangers" children. No cake.
The chef was entertaining with the spatulas and did his job, but all he said was, "We have a birthday here?" Nothing else and certainly made no attempt at acknowledgment, or serving her first or anything to prioritize. I don't think he got the memo on party etiquette!
Trust me, we are easy people to please. Too easy. Do not book and pay for a private party package at Ichiban Robinson. That will not get you deference or consideration of any kind. BTW, the gratuity was built into the bill, but I doubled it not wanting to punish the chef and wait staff for management misrepresentations. DO NOT GO HERE FOR ANY PRIVATE PARTY OF ANY KIND.
This restaurant has closed.
Family friendly, Yeah right!
Okay, I really have no words for the experience I had while attending a wedding here this past weekend. I understand these folks are running a business and need to protect what they own but you also should know how to deal with people tactfully.
I am a father of two little ones and I always watch them closely but a 2 and 5 year old get excited when the see their family and a dance floor. I was told by the dj that the owners do not want anyone running around on the dance floor because it could cause too much noise for the patrons of the restaurant below. Wait... what?? YOU were the ones which decided to facilitate weddings above YOUR restaurant. Maybe you should design the place better. Or, maybe you shouldn't have weddings any more or maybe you shouldn't have your hand in multiple in both. How about you pick one or the other.
Then while the kids from the wedding were also having fun but by no means being unruly, we were told to make sure they get in there seats and away from the windows and curtains. I was there already handling the situation and had some lady come from out of no where to tell me this.
Finally the last time I was reprimanded was when three of the children were moving out of the way and off the dance floor and into a hallway which was less crowded. It just happened that we ended up in the way of two servers who told us to move out of the way and stay out of the area for safety reasons. So a lounge area with a few places to sit is unsafe??
Come on. Get a grip and realize that you're not a super high-end establishment. You are dated and out of touch with reality. So check yourself and realize that the people who come to your restaurant/banquet hall are paying you money and should be treated with respect.
I'm fourteen can I work there?
Amazing Thai food with good lunch prices. My favorite place to eat downtown.
They closed their doors for good in July 2013!!!
What kind of bar makes you feel like you're underage when you aren't and have a 100% valid driver's license to prove it?
Our server refused to accept my Minnesota driver's license. I suggested they scan it, but the server said they didn't have one, which I later found out to be false. The server also refused to acknowledge that my other forms of ID (credit card, school ID, etc) matched my driver's license. It seemed as though the server was just set on not serving my party and I.
Minnesota licenses are made out of a rubber-like compound, which may arouse some suspicion, but seriously at least try to verify my ID in some objective manner. He also stated that because my party had licenses from different states (we are students), "clearly" that meant all of our IDs were fake.
My experience at Kelly's was quite upsetting.
AVOID if you have an out-of-state or international ID--they only trust Pennsylvania driver's licenses!
A great space that does way more than tattoos. Awesome art galleries and shows!
Check out their new food & cocktail menu!
Barley and Hops filled a ciritical need in the South Hills Suburbs - an area that is otherwise a craft-beer desert, in such stark contrast to the city.
But all good things must come to an end. Fiday, August 16, 2013 was they last day in business. Bye-Bye
This is a great neighborhood bar. The food is great. The drinks are cheap.It has big flat screen TV's everywhere. This is the best place to watch all Pittsburgh sports teams. They also give away an authentic Steelers jersey after every regular season and playoff game. As long as you are there by the end of the first quarter, you will have a chance to win. Now that's awesome!
Looking for a demeaning experience at a glorified PIZZA PLACE? I promise anger, mediocre food, time limits. The area has great eateries - NOT this one. Amazing they get away with it. Don't let them.
