Restaurant recommendation

Need a Pittsburgh restaurant for a business dinner on 5/31. Here is what we are looking for:

Dress - business casual (definitely not fancy)

Price - Using an expense account so price is not a factor but don't want to go crazy either

Where - downtown or one of the surrounding neighborhoods

No chains -- no Ruth Chris, McCormick & Schmick's etc.

Cuisine - not familiar with the likes/dislikes of the others so somewhat mainstream is preferred

Reservations/No Wait or somewhere we won't have to wait for a table is highly preferred

I know there are so many new and wonderful places that have opened so your suggestions are appreciated.

How many guests?

I’d look at Eleven and The Commoner (and start or end with drinks at their rooftop Biergarten). Both are convenient to downtown.

The Terrace Room at the William Penn Hotel is a very grand setting, and the food has always been good though I checked and there is a recent review that sounds alarming. Might be more old school than you're looking for, but if you like fancy old hotels this is your place.

Tons of great places downtown but many are loud and "buzzy" so if you are not looking for that I would agree the with the Commoner and Eleven as having something for everyone on their menu. If seafood is ok with most then add Union Standard and Or, The Whale. ..although both have non-seafood options too.

If your ok with a louder atmosphere then Meat & Potatoes and Butcher & the Rye would be my tops for food.
