It's quite good but....

Been here a bunch of times since moving to Pittsburgh and the place has a stellar reputation. It is good and generally a very safe bet. Staff are lovely and sitting outside on a summers day is excellent...people spill onto the pavement and hang out to drink some good european or american craft... read more

I just had the worst experience ever at this restaurant. My sister was in town just for the weekend and asked to have dinner at Point Brugge because it is one of her favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. We got there at 7pm and were told by the hostess that there was a wait of 45 mins. After two hours waiting... More

I grew up in Pittsburgh, have lived in Europe, and have been to Belgium twice. The last time I went to Belgium I ordered moules and frites and ended up disappointed because it wasn't as good as I remember the Point Brugge Café being. They also offer an amazing variety of other dishes and Belgian beers. It isn't cheap, but... More

This is perhaps the best place in Pittsburgh for brunch. The frites with garlic mayo are to die for. All of the seasonal specials are fabulous and the atmosphere is great. The mimosas help too!

Stopped in for a Saturday lunch, on a winter afternoon. It's a quaint restaurant in the Point Breeze neighborhood. We were seated immediately, and offered a table in the front of the restaurant or a booth further back. We chose the front, so we could look outside (but in retrospect the back would have been better, a cold breeze hit... More

Highly recommend this quaint restaurant in Point Breeze. Best mussels I have have in Pittsburgh. Had the Moules frites red curry style and they were excellent. Frites and Moules cooked perfectly. Very nice beer menu with a great Belgian and craft beer list. Food well done. Comfortable atmosphere. Nice staff with good service. Definitely with it.

I had the best salmon dish in saffron broth here. It was served with risotto and was truly the most superior salmon dish ever! The service was attentive but not overbearing. And the curry mussels we had were killer good, with the equally killer good frites. OH MY GOODNESS. DELICIOUS.

Our friends selected this place for our evening out. We had a wonderful time. The Point Brugg Cafe is located on a quaint street just off 5th Avenue near Oakland. Two members of our group ordered the pan seared salmon and raved about it all evening. The other dishes were creative and had a variety of small plate offerings (which... More

Visiting Carnegie Mellon with my daughter and found this restaurant on trip advisor. We had about a 20 minute wait but it eas worth it. If you like mussels this is the place to be. Service was good and waitstaff was very friendly. Highly recommended.
