Read much on the latest "farm to table" movement and Legume is always mentioned, so decided to try. Went for lunch and was not disappointed. Simple is sometimes so much better than a complicated production and Legume seems to do simple right. Will definitely return.

A hair in my salad that was not mine.... fish was done nicely, but small portion. The presentation was graceful but the placement of the fish over the food accompaniments was almost like a mix-mashed matrix, making the separate favors hard to taste separately. We sat at a booth-type chair-bench and chairs with a table and the back of the... More

Legume is a foodie heaven. Fresh farm-to-table ingredients and main courses. Great Bar. The ever changing menu is at its best in the fall when the ever popular pork-belly salad emerges from its slumber. So good, we ordered another for desert!

We had a delicious dinner at this wonderful restaurant. The corn soup was delicious and the halibut was one of the best we've ever had. The ingredients were very fresh and the chef did an excellent job in cooking the halibut. The fresh baked (in house) bread was fantastic. Very few restaurants bake their own bread any more. We would... More

Had a superb meal here with a group of nine - and all of us left extremely happy. The setting is somewhat casual, but in a very sophisticated way. The food is the star - a changing menu that features fresh and carefully sourced seasonal ingredients. What is great about the dishes is their focus and deceptive simplicity. There are... More

One of my favorites in Pittsburgh. Consistently well-prepared food. Service is sometimes a little slow in the main dining room, but if you're looking for a more casual experience, the bar next door (Butterjoint) serves the full menu. Dessert is a must- get the chocolate cake or any of the fruit crisps.

Given the Trip Advisor reviews we decided to try this place which is in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh. There was valet parking in garage across the street which was only $ 3.00 with validated ticket. Connected to the restaurant is nice bar area called Butterjoints. The actual restaurant is slightly contemporary in design but we really liked the fact... More

Dinner at Legume was simply a lovely experience all the way from the kind staff who helped us navigate the unfamiliar ingredient names to the absolutely delicious food. You can relax and take your time to enjoy the food, your dining companions and the pleasant atmosphere. Go ahead, order that post-dinner cup of coffee and at least share a dessert.... More

Wow, what a gem! My wife and I discovered this restaurant while looking for somewhere new. It’s been quite some time since my last review, mostly because most of our experiences have just been average. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, so we lounged in the bar area. The bar and wait staff were extremely entertaining and cordial.... More

Legume is a fantastic restaurant featuring a "farm to table" approach. The food is spectacular and inventive. The atmosphere is relaxing and friendly. Our only problem is going in for a light dinner and not being able to pass up on an appetizer that sounds too good to pass up. The menu changes daily and I recommend trying to arrive... More
