Delicious local meats and specialties

This is a local favorite with dishes sourced with ingredients from around the Pittsburgh area. Their appetizers are inspired by Italian country farm favorites but with a US flair. They have a great Chicken dish that is the signature of the restaurant and is worth trying. It is pan seared with a top... read more

Extremely personable and knowledgeable staff. Food fabulous, my Polish wife, who is an excellent cook ( lucky me 😍) loves the borscht. The duck confit is the best preparation a I've had. Food quality always consistent.

Remember how Green Day was the punk band for turds? Legume is the Green Day of fine dining. The restaurant looks like a set on Portlandia. The décor is very dark, curtains, looks kinda like a mix between an old Slovakia grandmother's home and a funeral home. It is clean and seating is private, very spacious. The wait staff dress...

I have been enjoying Legume since the night they opened in the first space in Regent Square. Legume is one of those rare restaurants which is always exploring new flavors, new foods and new ideas but always hits the mark perfectly. The staff is knowledgeable and the food and drinks are amazing. If you want to impress someone or have... More

This is a little hard to find for out-of-towners, but worth the looking. There is free parking across the street, which helps. Everything was delicious, from cocktails to dessert. The service was good; only complaint was that the tables are very close together and we were seated next to young couples who were talking on their multiple cell phones throughout... More

We come here at least twice a month and it's our go to restaurant for out of town guests. Never have we had a bad meal or service. Everything is top quality, locally sourced and made with care. Our preschooler loves it too, we dine early, and especially enjoys the perogies made with homemade farm cheese. Delicious!

Have heard so many good things about Legume over the years and finally got my chance to experience it first hand. Exceeded my expectations! Great ambience, loved the earthy but elegant decor, great vibe, friendly service and the food was quite simply, to die for. Fantastic wine selection to go with a menu that amply covered all bases. As a... More

Very welcoming staff, nice ambience and plenty of space between tables, so that you can nicely talk/listen to others on the table. The appetizer was great, and so as the main course. Very good selection of wines and beer. Can't comment on dessert - didn't have room for that. Would highly recommend this place.

I had a work lunch here this week. I can't say enough about how cool and friendly everyone was. The menu is unique and varied. They are well known for their Burger but I got a wonderful vegetable quiche, with salad, farmers bread and a terrific squash soup. I wish I lived in Oakland since I would come here more... More
