The Commoner is in Hotel Monaco in downtown Pittsburgh. The menu includes some unique dishes that were very good. We started out by sharing a couple orders of mussels and devils on horseback (which were bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese - delicious!). The kale salad had pork belly croutons and apple cider vinaigrette which was a tasty combination. Out of the 7 of us that were there, I think half of us ordered the scallops. They were served with greens, apple-chardonnay reduction and a beet risotto cake. Once I got over the thought that the beet risotto cake resembled a slab of raw beef, it was delicious! The price point is high, but the portion sizes were large. If you are looking to go to dinner to celebrate something, I definitely would recommend The Commoner.

"This was my first time at Gran Canal. It is a small town family restaurant where it was clear that customers come here regularly. The owners made a point to come out and greet every customer and knew a majority of them by name. The portions were healthy and the price point was low. The artichoke appetizer was a big hit to everyone in our party."

"I Loved LOLA - it is a small foodie restaurant with an open kitchen that let you see everything being made fresh. We shared a cheese plate appetizer and a sashimi appetizer and both were excellent. I had the Carbonara with pancetta. It was excellent. For dessert we each got a chocolate truffle which was the perfect end to our dinner."
