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!

Wow. This place is really good. The plates are a very nice size with plenty of food on it. The taste that came out of the lamb was amazing. It was sooooo good. The prices are moderate and well worth the effort put into these plates. The place is small so don't get upset if you have to wait. Enjoy... More

And I am not usually one who would even finish my fries, let alone order fries because I think they're good. Same goes for the aoli they serve with them. Both are exceptional and worth ordering if they don't come with your meal. We ate both lunch and dinner here yesterday because we spent our day in the neighborhood and... More

I've been to this place a few times with my family (and its sister restaurant Point Brugge) and I enjoy it every time. When I say best fries ever I mean it! Get the mussels and fries combo and you're good to go!

I come here way too often. They have the best fries in town, their mussels are great, the point burgher and the steak au jus are delicious sandwiches for a short meal, and their chaud chevre salad is nice (but ask the salad dressing aside to spread it only to extent that pleases you). And all of that with a... More

There is no way this should be listed as the #1 in the Burg. Not even close! Now with that said, I have waited to see if perhaps my first experience was just an off day. However, I have now been to Pointe Brugge Cafe on 3 separate occasions and I can honestly say the place is sadly over rated.... More

The #1 restaurant in Pittsburgh? No way! Maybe the best restaurant in Point Breeze. Maybe one of the better places to get mussels. But not even close to the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. The place is so small that the tables are on top of each other. The bar area is far too small to accommodate the usual crowd of... More
