This tiny restaurant produces food MUCH better than one might expect (except for the consistently high reviews on Tripadvisor). Everything we (party of 5) had last night was excellent: clever, well prepared, nicely presented. Service is not fancy but efficient and friendly. The beer selection is worthy of a much bigger restaurant.

Went during a busy brunch. I had to find the hostess and get on the wait list. After standing over 25 minutes and watching people get seated before us ,my 81 year old mother ( who has been standing the whole time)made a comment to the hostess. The hostess must not have liked it and pulled a passive aggressive move;... More

This restaurant is located in a residential area, so you might drive right by without knowing where it is. We went on a Saturday night and were able to get right in. We shared the arugula and sweet potato salad, which was very good and the 1-1/2 pounds of mussels with fries in a white wine sauce. The mussels were... More

We had the hop devil shrimp and fries as appetizers. Both were very good. For salads we had the house and arugula, both excellent..really fresh greens and great dressings. For entrees we had the lamb shoulder which was more like a stew (not what we expected) and was a bit overseasoned but the butternut squash gnocchi were off the charts!... More

Food is good quality and well presented. Service attentive and professional. I arrived mid week at about 8:30 without a reservation. I was seated immediately and service was quick. Good atmosphere with lots of "regulars" in the restaurant. Frites are good but I have had better in NYC. Beer selection is good and includes many Belgian brews and a few... More

We recently visited Pittsburgh to visit our daugher and this was one of the more memorable restaurants that we dined at. We went to Sunday brunch at this wonderful cafe in the Point Breeze area of the city. The food was superb - fresh, tasty, and creative - only matched by the superlative service. The bloody mary cocktail mix was... More

Yes it is crowded, tiny, and you'll wait for a table on Most nights. That's part of the charm! Go for the beer, mussels and frites. Amazing!

We went with some expectations being so well rated in trip advisor. But we never expected such a great dining experience. The restaurant is small but with nice space among the tables, comfortable and nicely decorated. First the drinks. Wife order the best cosmo (Grey Goose) I’ve ever had in a restaurant (and I am from New York). My pinot... More

A taste of Europe with Behisn Frites dipped in a decadent mayonnaise sauce, this is a combination of a pub and restaurant. Great beers, burgers and Steak & Frites as well. Nice wine list to sit at the bar and enjoy a glass!
