Good food and atmosphere

Had never heard of some of the menu items, which is a nice change. Had raclette which was delicious. Had a Polish dish, pierogis and kielbasa. Kielbasa was prepared differently than my dad’s (he made his own) so I might have been prejudice. Great food, friendly staff but a little crowded.

I was surprised by how average my meal was recently; having dined here several times before and having found everything so fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful; lively and warm. Service friendly and attentive . The problem was the food. Everything tasted tired. I know it's still winter, but I was hoping for a glimpse of Spring in the... More

Legume is an absolutely excellent restaurant, though I will focus on the full service bar named Butterjoint. This is a place I frequent fairly regularly. It is always a new experience with the constantly changing drink list and menu. I am particularly fond of the "Fancy Burger", which is a truly unique, changing creation, using fresh grass fed ground beef.... More

Very well prepared foods. They have a limited menu. According to the staff they try to source a most of their foods a locally as possible as well as fresh as possible. The night I was there, the choices were lamb, chicken, fish (Sturgeon), steak and a vegan dish. I had the fish, which was not local, but very well... More

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 skillet pressing down on the chicken, making... 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!
