    Our server, Joseph, was friendly, helpful, patient, and a super nice guy. The menu was perfect for our party of eight -- everyone found something that they loved. I'd definitely return to try some of the other options. We enjoyed the local beer selections and like having the option of higher quality craft beers from other parts of the country. Even though there was an issue with a few of the taps being hooked up to the wrong kegs (LOL) they fixed it and handled everything smoothly! One of our party members was participating in Dry January and enjoyed her Mocktail very much! Didn't even miss the alcohol. City Works is in a convenient location in Market Square. A nice upscale sports bar that served our big group well for dinner before a show at Heinz Hall. Just a short walk away. We're not in the city often, but when we return, we're asking for Joseph!

    Many open tables, and what I would consider sufficient staff, however our server was not very attentive and didn't honor the 'happy hour' prices being offered. We ultimately got 'most' of the pricing corrected . . . . . but if this was our first trip to CityWorks, we would not be going back.

    Reservations were properly secured. However, when making the reservation, for this establishment, should ask for lower seats or high top table. We had a member of our party who had difficulty with the higher seats and the restaurant was not able to accommodate us. The appetizer was very good. The main courses were good. The sides were ok. The main waitstaff was somewhat “creepy…”. Take the order, service the table, listen to the customer. When the customer orders something, stop trying to add items to the order and insisting they know better than the person who is going to eat the meal. Keep opinions to oneself unless asked. Certain mannerisms when taking an order need to be specific to the order at hand and not a not pontificating on other things. Will revisit the restaurant but would not have that waiter again.

    Food took too long. Things were forgotten. Had to ask sever for apps, condiments, coffee, dessert. and it was as if she forgot and remembered when we asked. 545 reservation and left at 745. 2 hours!! Told her we had a show one hour before the show and ended up rushing to get to the show. Seemed very short staffed. Lots of apologies offered but still disappointing.

    Host was very accommodating, our party had a few last minute dropouts and they were still able to accommodate our reservation. Service was polite and prompt, food was good. Maybe we're just old, but the music was a little too loud, had to shout to hear across the table, otherwise the overall experience was very good

    Going to the theater so decided to try City Works pre-show with one other couple. Convenient to make reservations which were honored when we arrived. Noise level extremely loud making it almost impossible to talk at our table. Service was prompt and efficient. Food was just ok - hot dishes were barely warm - disappointing but didn't want to wait to send them back due to show timing constraints.

    Sat at table and waited 30 mins before anyone even stopped over to get us drinks, ordered a beer and after asking for it 3 separate times throughout the dinner it arrived when we were all about done eating our meals (we got apps too…), waitress was never around to ask if we needed anything we went without water for most of our evening. All the tables around us seemed to be sitting around waiting for things too. Just bad service.

    For a holiday dinner with co-workers, this was the perfect place. The vibe was energetic and upfront. Reservation was reserved via open door and had no issues. The menu was able to satisfy all taste pallet and price very reasonable. I also like the HH menu options. The Noise level high but is what was expected. I Would definitely recommend.

    4/5 orders came within 20 minutes after ordering. The waitress told me my soup would be there in a few minutes. The fries with the two burger orders were cold. After 10 minutes I asked the waitress to check on the soup. After another 10 minutes she came and told me her manager would bring my soup. Everyone else had finished eating by then. The manager brought the soup, explained that the problem was a broken piece of equipment, apologized and said he would not charge for the soup. Then we ordered two desserts as we were celebrating a granddaughter’s concert. After waiting for about 25 minutes, we told her to cancel the desserts and bring the check. The restaurant was not particularly busy. Our service and the food were a disappointment.

    Went for a family birthday celebration. Had a reservation - was seated within 10 minutes of arriving. Place was very crowded. Good service during our ordering and meal, waiter checked in frequently. Had to find our waiter to get bill. Food was very good - everyone enjoyed their choice of meal. Seemed pricier than expected.

    We went on a Pens / Leafs Saturday game night ... GO LEAFS!!! so as expected the restaurant was hopping. It was a bit noisy ... but maybe we're just getting old... Lol Now for the things that were great: Our server: Chelsea... :) Drinks: white sangria and draft beer Food: Bacon cheeseburger w/ fries Ahi Tuna Tacos It was a short walk from our hotel and a short uber ride to the PPG Paints Arena. We'll definitely go back on our next road trip.

    City Works is a good place to grab a quick meal or sit and lounge as you have food with your drinks. The food is good. Not great but good and nice portions. The only true negative is the noise level. But that is a personal issue I have often. I like to be able to hear the people around me.

    Food was amazing! Has the Fish & Chips and my date had the Smokehouse Burger. First round of drinks were good too but the second round was heavier on the syrups used in the cocktails. Service was slower than expected for a non-busy Wednesday night. Overall the food and atmosphere was excellent enough to make me want to go back again.

    We've been to CityWorks twice now for brunch. We have ordered off the brunch and lunch menu. No matter which menu, the food was delicious as well as the cocktails and other beverages. Food-wise and beverage-wise, there is something to please every palate. CityWorks can also easily host larger groups. The atmosphere is fun but not so loud that you can't hear others at your table. Geri is a super attentive and enthusiastic waitress.
