We were staying at the DoubleTree Hotel and ate at this attached restaurant several times. When it was not crowded, it was excellent. The food is good, and the servers are very helpful. However, as others have mentioned, management does not seem to know how to prepare for large crowds. On the Saturday of our stay, Pittsburgh hosted a marathon,... More

We stayed at the Doubletree Hotel Downtown because of the proximity to Heinz Field. After the game we came back to the hotel to eat and the wait was quoted as "1 hour." We decided to wait and the lack of service at the bar forced us to go to our room and get a beverage. We finally were sat,... More

This was "Light up night" in P-burgh. After trying to get reservations at a number of other restaurants, we resorted to the facility in the Doubletree where we were staying, They were not that busy, though had to go through main desk several times to get restaurant to pick up the phone. Ordered a basic bottle of Montpelllier Pinot Noir... More

Several items on the menu were unavailable. That's a restaurant management failure. Service was OK, but I won't return.

The Bigelow is attached to the Doubletree Hotel and used mainly by hotel guests. The menu is restricted resulting in limited choice. The food myself and my wife had was of good quality and well presented. The staff were pleasant but short in numbers in my opinion.

The buffet breakfasts offers many of the options that many hotels offer to guest as part of the stay. The staff was very friendly and the service was good, the food was sub par and over priced for the quality.

After a long day, we decided to just go downstairs and have dinner. The tomato soup was delicious. My son had the roasted chicken, nothing but bones on his plate when he was done, I believe he really enjoyed it. I had the smoked brisket tacos, a little too smoky for me.
