Truly lovely. Much larger than I'd anticipated but not in a bad way. Lots of intimate nooks to be sat at. Menu, printed daily, is absolutely seasonal, locally sourced as possible. Wonderful bread. Had the corn soup and the chicken (with a glossy caramelized square of grits, tomatoes popped into sweetness in a skillet, zucchini)--all terrific. Excellent choices for vegetarians.... More

My wife and I came to Pittsburgh to visit my son and see his white coat ceremony for the University of Pittsburgh Medical School. That event was on Sunday so Saturday we had some time to see our son and explore Pittsburgh a little. My son made reservations for Legume for 8:15pm and when we arrive it was quaint and... More

The wonderful food compensated for the indifferent service and bland atmosphere. The corn soup, goat cheese crostini and sea bass were absolutely fantastic. The upside down cake was great but the peach crisp was only so so. Still, overall, Legume is definitely worth a visit.

This was our second visit to Legume. We went early so place was not that busy so we got a table by the window. Our waitress showed up promptly and took our drink order. One of us ordered the chick pea stew which was fantastic and one order a chicken dish which was very good. Legume changes the menu almost... More

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
