Last evening met friends from the other side of Pittsburgh at Cafe Monaco and had a great casual meal. The appetizer with egg plant, shrimp, buffalo sauce and mornay sauce was really good. Looking forward to going back.

I enjoyed a quick stop at Hoffstots. The food is always fresh, tasty and well prepared. Reasonable prices also. I enjoyed the chicken salad and they serve delicious fresh bread.

We had a business luncheon here that was fantastic. We primarily ordered salads and everyone was pleased with their selections. I had the apple/goat cheese salad and added grilled chicken. Super delicious and the perfect sized portion!

Let me start off by saying the wait-staff was very professional and courteous. I enjoyed them. It ended there. What should have been a very pleasant 60th birthday celebration for my sister was ruined by a self-important, obnoxious, callous owner. We booked the reservation with the understanding (by the restaurant) that this was a birthday celebration that would encompass drinks,... More

I haven't been to this restaurant in several years but one of my buddies suggested this for dinner last night. Good bar for cocktails before dinner and an excellent menu made for a great night. Friendly, helpful server helped make the evening a success.

Visited on Saturday, 2/20. After waiting for almost an hour WITH A RESERVATION, we gave up and left. There were tons of people waiting to be seated, all with reservations. The restaurant overbooked and it was chaos. I think they need to know when to stop taking reservations for a certain time when they know they cannot meet the demand.

My husband and I stopped here on 2-20-16 around noon after antiquing in the area. We waited about 5 min. to be seated by the older blonde hostess - not a problem as they seemed busy. A party of 5 was seated behind us about 5 min after us and were waited on immediately - we were still waiting. There... More

The house basalmic dressing is very good. I got the pasta calamari, I think their marinara sauce is average. Our waitress could of been nicer, I know it can be frustrating when busy but you still have to keep a positive attitude. I would eat here again.
