The Commoner in Downtown Pittsburgh is open for business!

At our gastropub, we don’t distinguish between commoners and kings; we just want to feed the good people of Pittsburgh. In the restaurant, seasonal menus add a modern flair to classic comforts, complemented by a robust selection of local beers and craft spirits. It’s all served in an industrial-inspired setting in downtown Pittsburgh. Come and join us for an uncommonly good time.

    My wife and I visit The Commoner a couple of times each year. It is one of the restaurants we count on for the rare mix of excellent service, delicious food, the right amount of atmosphere, and reasonable prices. The drinks are always well-made, as is the food.

    My wife and I stay at the Monaco a couple of nights each year. The Commoner has served us dozens of meals over the last couple of years, and never failed to delight. The cocktails are delicious quaffs, and the food satisfying at a physical level.

    Not the first time here, but first time for breakfast/brunch. Food was excellent, perfectly poached eggs on our Benedict and a delicious, silky smooth, fresh and tasty hollandaise sauce. Food came quickly, server nailed making sure coffee was topped up without stopping by every few minutes to check on us. Overall a great experience.

    We went for brunch before a show. The menu was great, and everyone's food was excellent. The drinks are overpriced ($11 for a mocktail?!?), but otherwise a great place for brunch.

    We won’t go back. The food was not close to special. It was ok and edible but very pricey for what was delivered. Waiter was fine. Hostess who seated us was short and never smiled. No gluten free I ate risotto but it was just ok.

    The food was very disappointing. The menu online was not the same as the menu in person. The Mac and cheese lacked both flavor & actual cheese. The maitake mushroom dish was a giant raw mushroom with undercooked risotto. I would not go back here unless you want to pay way too much money for dinner to only end up eating the very salty French fries.

    Staff was pleasant and the hotel and restaurant ambience was fun and clever. Mixed drinks were flavors that sounded interesting but tasted flat and watered down. Food was okay--carb heavy and oversalted--with a limited menu. I requested what I thought was an easy substitution request (cole slaw for fries) and that couldn't be accommodated--no biggie but strange. Overall overpriced for the quality of the food and drinks but an interesting place to visit.

    While we have been to the Commoner many times before this was sadly just a bit disappointing. The service was fabulous and of course the drinks on point, salads nicely dressed (both my teenagers got the Caesar) and my MIL and I got the wedge. Dinner for most of us was delicious but my husband’s meal was not good. Chicken with some kind of lentils and red sauce that he couldn’t describe. The chicken may have been cooked properly but covered in the red sauce made him fearful it wasn’t so he left a half picked chicken dish…maybe bad ordering but live and learn. That might be a dish left off the menu! We will give it another try…

    The Commoner is a great option if you're in the Kimpton or that neighborhood in Pittsburgh. The food is great (I had brunch and dinner), service is fast, friendly, and super helpful! I had a comfortable booth for brunch where I got a lot of work done, but also a lovely table to meet with a colleague for dinner. Definitely recommend whether you're staying at the hotel or nearby!
