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

Just returned home from a wonderful dinner at Legume. The entire staff was great: polite, refined yet warm and friendly. Our server, Justin, was pleasant, helpful with suggestions and explanations of the offerings of the day, and attentive to our needs. Who could ask for more?? We are not people who know cocktails, but their menu of choices included explanations... More

It is unfortunate that when writing this review, the human part of the experience takes away from the overall dining experience. The restaurant is actually 2 separate dining experiences. It shares a kitchen between Legume, and it's bar/casual dining location next door, Butterjoint. The atmosphere is nice and the overall ambience provides for a nice atmosphere for whatever occasion. We... More

The place is well set up, the food is great and the staff are terrific. We only wanted a light supper so shared the blue Finn pate, delicious and the main vegetarian dish, spring explosion (?). And it was a wonderfully tasty dish. The wine list seems to have no local wines, but my French Pinot noir was just right.

An unbelievable experience. Just to name one thing...smoked bluefish pate. I don't like bluefish smoked or otherwise but my husband said we should try it....so we order it along with another pate..pork, beef, and pistachio. The bluefish pate was awesome...so smooth and creamy and was served with thin, toasted slices of baguette that were soaked in butter. Wow!! Obviously not... More

Dinner at Legume in Pittsburgh was one of our wisest recent decisions. We went early, at 5:30, and by 6:30 it was packed. As soon as we walked in the door, the aromas convinced us we had found a special spot. The food is local if possible. Extraordinary attention is paid to detail and healthy eating, using all fresh ingredients... More

This place is a terrific place to take your special someone to eat that special meal. The locally sourced menu is a delight and everything was great, The ramps were a special treat.

Great food, amazing service, and yummy drinks. Everyone is friendly, attentive. Great location for a romantic dinner. Ambience is just a low rumble. My husband and I went here several times and we've tried the vegetarian tasting menus as well as ordering different items off the menu. Nothing disappoints here. Definitely a must visit when in Pittsburgh.

We had heard good things about this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The service struck the right balance been attentive and cloying. The atmosphere struck the same balance - what a piece of wood our table was! My "Under the Skillet" chicken was as tasty and moist chicken that I can ever remember having. My ding companions said the... More
