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

i went to this gem of an establishment in late July of this year. It was not quite what I expected, basically a restaurant in the middle of a neighborhood. I'm not local to Pittsburgh so that may not be unusual. Anyway it was a rather warm evening so I chose to eat inside but could not find a seat... More

Service was pretty good-- slow to fill up waters. The food came out fast and was good. We had the 2 pounds of mussles in the white wine sauce. The fries with house made mayo was excellent! We also had crab cakes, which weren't anything special, but still tasty. Roasted tomato and spinach dip is a must try!

The restaurant is fairly small and located in a corner of residential area. We won't notice it if we didn't know it was there. We didn't make reservation and it was a mistake. We had to wait for 40 minutes before getting a table. But the long wait was so worth of it, 100%. We ordered 4 dishes, of course... More

My husband and I went here for the first time last evening, and I really enjoyed everything from their ice tea to the lamb. In fact, the lamb was very delicious and I highly recommend it! It had polenta, mushrooms, and spinach in it. My husband got a pasta dish with prosciutto but it was very, very dry and we... More

My husband I and visited for brunch on our Anniversary. Don't be deceived by the neighborhood, this place is a gem! I wish I could have ordered everything on the menu! Great breakfast drinks, pre fixe menu, and specials. Amazing service and cute atmosphere. Can't wait to return!

I love this place -- tucked away in the midst of an adorable neighborhood! I can't move myself past the Thai mussels -- phenomenal! Enjoy the mussels with one of their many cold beers! And make sure you soak up all the broth with the delicious crusty bread! Yumm . . . just thinking about it makes me look forward... More
