Great place! July is vegetarian month, and all of the vegetables were amazing, even the chickpea stew, which had enough spices and greens to be delicious, and the borscht and steak tartare were even better (the kitchen had run out but was able to make us a half-portion). That brings me to the service, which was excellent. Our server was... More

The service is decent. With it's drop ceiling, the dining area is somewhat simple, though made interesting by the large wooden tables that still resemble trees. But there's no doubt that the food and cocktails are the shining star at Legume. The menu changes constantly, making it appealing to regulars who are foodies and not in need of having the... More

It almost hurts me to write a poor review for this place. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, good variety of items on the menu, and the underlying food was quite good (charred endive salad and cool asparagus soup for our apps, and grilled grains on a variety of greens and a collection of sausages as our mains) but all the dishes...

We had the opportunity to visit this restaurant recently for a family gathering to celebrate a graduation. The atmosphere is classy but not stuffy. Our server was the perfect combination of attentive yet not overbearing. He knew the menu very well, and answered our questions fully. The food was eclectic and delicious. If they have the duck fat fries when... More

The atmosphere is a bit antiseptic, but the food is great. At this point, the term "farm to table" has become something of a marketing catch-phrase (and unlike food labeled as "organic", I don't think there's some federal agency doing anything to true up whether a restaurant is actually "farm to table". Nevertheless, at places like Legume, the term tends... More

The restaurant is a good, but I did not find anything that stood out. The decor is forgettable and the food was as well. While I would not say anything bad about the meal, there was nothing spectacular. The fish was cooked properly and the sauce for the fish was good. Same can be said for the chicken, but nothing...

Was in town for a wedding so we checked out Legumes, a few blocks from the Wyndham Hotel. Modern, comfortable setting. Service was excellent, not rushed but attentive. The menu changes daily so I can't say if the dishes we had will be available. The pork and pistachio pate with pickles and garlic toast as an appetizer seemed intriguing and... More

The ambiance is delightful. I was a guest of Pittsburghers who recommended that we eat dinner there. The menu was diverse and unique - everyone found something interesting to order. The wine list had a nice selection.
