Friday Night on Oakmont

We had a reservation for dinner on a Friday night. It was not crowded when we got there so I'm not sure we really needed the reservation; although we were there a little early (around6:15). The service we very good. I had the Chicken Picata, which was very good. My wife had the crad cakes... read more

The calamari was commercial out of the box frozen and was worth only half the price. There are many other places in the area that offer bigger portions for a lot less money. This has been a long time high class place in a rich area of Pgh, but it has cheapened itself through the years for it seems each... More

This is our absolute "go-to" restaurant. Dan and Tom Monaca (owners) are right on spot....they keep the high standards one would expect from such an establishment. The menu is wonderful. For lunch, try the coconut chicken (or shrimp) salad as the grilled pineapple adds just the right touch. The steak and chicken salads are wonderful as is the cashew chicken... More

I haven't lived in the area for decades, but I always try to stop when I'm in Pittsburgh just so I can have one of their great fish sandwiches. I've been eating them since I was a kid! The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable and they are in the same block as the Oakmont Bakery - so what... More

Only 5 years ago Pittsburgh didn’t have good restaurants. Suddenly it all changed. Café Monaco is as good illustration as any: - Elegant Italian cuisine. - Pasta’s that’s not overcooked. - Creative, clean menu. The service is absolutely fantastic. It’s cheerful, fast, attentive and you don’t even have entertain a waitress. Bravo!

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, Hoffstats seemed like a nice place to take our friends out for dinner. When I asked them about Hoffstats in Oakmont, PA, they had been there a couple years before for a family anniversary dinner and said they liked it. We made reservations, but they aren't required. Dress for dinner is business casual or... More

My guy and I met two other couples on Friday night for Happy Hour and light fare. The bartenders, Edward and Bobby were outstanding and the Lemon Drop Martini was the best I have ever had! They were excellent in being attentive and we never had to look for them to order anything. I ordered a small plate chicken saltimbocco... More

It was late when I found this restaurant and stopped in; they were within 50 minutes of closing so I ordered a steak salad - and it was very good. The steak was freshly cooked and served exactly as I ordered, the balance of streak and greens was perfect and I asked for the dressing on the side. I enjoyed... More

My wife and I attended an after matinee and stopped afterwards for dinner. Seated promptly with quick response from the wait staff. Placed our order and were quickly served with drinks, bread and salad. Restaurant was just starting to get busy but we were well attended to. Our meals were quickly served hot. This is one of my favorite restaurants... More
