Re: “Sienna Mercato Emporio

Good review. Agreed with most of your comments. Not sure why anyone would put meatballs as the main attraction.

Re: “1844 Restaurant

This was our pre-prom stop some 30 years ago as well as numerous birthdays and a few other celebrations. Such wonderful food. And people as well. Always enjoyed being there.

Re: “Nancetta's

Visited Nancetta's after a friend recommended, but were disappointed. We got our salads an hour after ordering (after asking for them) and got our food two hours after ordering. Someone in our party never even received the soup that they ordered! Server was kind enough to apologize for the delay, but that was it. No one even tried to remedy the huge delay. My husband wanted to order dessert when we first got there, but both of our appetites were ruined by the time our food finally arrived. Food was awful. We were really hoping for home-style, authentic Italian food but were really disappointed. The food did NOT look appetizing and taste matched the appearance. Took one bite and boxed it up...where it ended up in the garbage. We're an Italian family who also makes everything from scratch...we should have stayed home and cooked! Waste of money!

Re: “Southern Hospitality

When they were in the food court at Monroeville Mall, I also found the food to be a bit salty. However, other than the salt, I thought the food was good. I also found the service to be great! But I hope that they make their presence more noticeable in Edgewood than in Monroeville so that people actually know they are there and are open (ex: better signage)! I wish them much success!

Re: “Micro Diner

I like the fact that the Micro Diner always uses fresh never frozen food. I frequent there often and have my favorite menu options but do on occasion try something new. IT seems like each item on the menu while maybe standard menu items at many establishments have a little twist of their own at the mirco diner. As the main review states the Burgers are fresh and I personally love to sit at the counter and watch my food being cooked.
The owner takes pride in her establishment and works there herself many hours of the day. It's refreshing to see an owner manage their business them self and not pay a hired gun which = higher prices.
Looking at the previous reviews and past jobs being in food service I can honestly say it is very hard to get good help these days.
With that said I think anyone who has never stopped into Mirco Diner before should stop in and give it a shot. I believe you will be pleased.

Re: “Micro Diner

Your right! I fell short out of emotions! My apologies! My first comment was intended for us to take responsibility! It just amazes me how someone can say lies and hurtful things and claim it's contructive criticisms! I can handle the truth! I believe everything they experienced. It is a 27/7 job! Maybe that's why it gets taken to heart with nasty comments! I will practice more humility and thank you for your honesty anonymous comment!

Re: “Micro Diner

No wonder people sign their reviews anonymous! Every and all businesses have good and bad days so you were reviewed on a not so good day. It happens. move on and know that tomorrow is another day. Instead of doing anykind of damage control you are alienating a lot of folks with your arrogant rants! I live on mount washington and i have eaten at your place as well as the other eateries and i have had good experiences and i have had bad experiences. You have gone from blaming the cook to the critique to the kids for sugar wrappers but nowhere in this did you accept responsibility for not having the confidence in your employees to do the job properly when you are not there. Owning a business is 24/7 and it requires all of your attention to succeed and somewhere you need to learn to be humble. Enough said on this subject..Good Luck to you

Re: “Micro Diner

Thank you!! You have already had your chance to not like us on urban Spoon with your lie comments! (umtomiguess) Labriola Sausage comes in from Strip Distric fresh! I was talking to you about my comments not the guest!(umtomiguess) Now if you feel the need to keep on with your hate! I will not play into your hand. You didn't like us a year ago and still feel some type of way? WOW!!!! Must be personal! Funny thing is I didn't say it was bad! Not so good and thanked them for the help to make changes! We are not nasty like some!

Re: “Micro Diner

WOW! You really can not stand criticism! Then you stoop so low as to complain about sugar packets on the floor from the children, well my dear if there was not a gust of cold air that blew in when the door would open perhaps the packets would have not blown to the floor. You got caught (finally) giving poor food and service and you can not handle it. Oddly enough if you read the article it is not written from a negative place, but these comments have greatly impacted my opinion of the micro diner and not in a favorable way.

Re: “Micro Diner

Absolutely you should expect good food and service! That is why he is gone! Come in Saturday and see if he is there! He worked 5 hrs a week! You just so happened to be in on a Saturday he worked. He is gone because I have warned him before about over cooking food! My other two cooks would never put a product out like that. Very unfair for you to say that we stage reviews. Did we stage munch from the post gazette or channel 2 news story on us? Don't think so! We were not aware of you critiquing us! We were not aware of this article until the photographer called to take pictures, which was after the visit! My server recalled the visit because of the mistakes! She also recalled the kids tearing up sugar packets all over the floor! No big deal kids will be kids but for you to say we were aware is a bold lie! Don't you think I would have been there if I was aware? Actually we did take the criticism to take action on what needed changed! Not sure why you are being nasty about my comment? We are sorry for your experience!

Re: “Micro Diner

Heather you say that cook is no longer there and that just is not true! and you mention the food must not have been "bad enough to throw away" is crazy to say,, when we go out to eat we trust that we will get quality food and service and that just was not the case here. I believe that all your previous reviews were staged and that you knew you were being critiqued so you were on your best behavior and this time you got caught doing what you always do. your comment just screams at me that you do not take criticism well. Well my dear you better develop a knack for it!

Re: “Micro Diner

My name is Heather Nally, I am the owner of the Micro Diner. I would like to apologize for the lack of effort on my cooks part to not over cook and get the order correct. What is really sad is that is the first not so good article on us! That cook is no longer here! We will not stand for someone not caring or taking pride in there profession! We will take what we think needs changed and change it! Here at Micro Diner we always strive to take care of our customers! We have changed the crust to our pot pies and added a top crust to them! I will promise you this has much more flavor! No, we do not make portions bigger with left overs! All of our entrees are hardy and the plate is full! That is what you expect from diners! You will not leave hungry. We do remember the customers who came in from this article. They did take what they did not eat home. So it must have not been bad enough to throw away. Also our zucchini fries are not homemade and not the same breading as the breaded chicken breast which are breaded in house. Again Thank you for sharing your experience! It is with these kinds of comments that makes us even better! Because we already do care! From our experience thus far, we already are tiny, mighty and blessed!! Please give us a try yourself!
