Upon receiving numerous recommendations and only after carefully studying the reviews for Legume, I went ahead and made reservations for a Tuesday evening at 5:45pm. We were catching a show at 7:30pm in the area and thought this would be a nice spot to try. Mediocre appetizers and salads and the small portions didn't immediately deter me. However, the more...

Had a terrific meal here -- everyone in my group enjoyed their food; only complaint was that the fish was a bit over cooked and dry. Elegant ambiance without being stuffy or formal

This restaurant was on my husband's "to go to" list nearly two years ago when we moved into the Pittsburgh area. I actually tried to make reservations at Legume a few times; but they couldn't accommodate us when we wanted to go. I was finally successful in booking a table for last night; we were celebrating our engagement anniversary. We... More

Kinda hippie, but that's how we roll. I had a steak, sorry I'm a purist, it was in my top 3 for a life time. My wife had the chicken paprikash, high ratings on her end also. We have dined from Rio to London, we live in Wexford. If we could find a sitter every Saturday evening, we would make... More

This is a superb local American restaurant with strong, innovative veggie options a mere 5 blocks from Pitt (our son is a student there). The restaurant is cozy but has an upscale bar attached if you want a livelier scene (Butterjoint). Drinks are made at Butterjoint which is notable for a wide range of inventive cocktails as well as all... More

One evening at Legume and you know why this restaurant receives props for fine dining. You enter attractively lit rooms that make you feel in someone's dining room. Wait service is professional, attentive, and helpful but not overly chatty. The cocktail list is a kicker, and plate after plate arrives to delight and intrigue. The corn poblano soup smooth and...

Very enjoyable meal with quite an interesting menu. I had the halibut and my guest had mackerel. There were vegan, chicken and beef entrees available. The European portions allowed a diner to enjoy an appetizer as well as dessert. The service was excellent.

So we had to try. We had good apps to share for a group of 6. Don't be shy - get the French fries with truffles. I split the steak. It was the right portion for me. And they were gracious to do it. Delicious. Nice celebration night. Quieter during the week, but still busy on a Monday.

Don't be fooled by their name - they serve great meat as well as vegetarian options. We started with three "starters" each of which was delicious and just the right amount for three of us. The main courses were wonderfully cooked and tasty - not overly fussed over. The dessert was fabulous - a peach and blueberry crumble that we... More

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
