This was a return visit. We were last there several years ago and thought it was great. It was just as good on our return visit. Service was excellent as were the drinks. The food is exemplary. I had the steak and daughter the duck. We shared the pate. Prices are very reasonable. I only wish they would open in... More

Right across street from the Benedum Center. Opens at 5pm, reservations recommended. Can sit in Bar area with out reservations, first come first serve. The Steak for two is unbelievable very large portion with 12" bone. Side dishes plenty big for two. Take extra home.

This was on my husbands "to-do" list and it didn't disappoint. Meal was fabulous, scalloped potatoes were to die for! Hubby had the bone marrow for the first time and loved it. Only down side was it was after a Steelers game in October so it was busy. They got us in but we had to sit outside. Brrr, thought... More

At one time this was one of my favorite restaurants but it has now jumped the shark and is quite tired and in need of an overhaul and re-do. Menu is the same old stuff. Just old and dated now.

Great place to eat before going to the Benedum for a musical. We ate outside and it has a lovely atmosphere. Make your own Bloody Mary's are a hit with most diners.

As the name suggests, you will not leave this restaurant hungry! There were so many yummy sounding items to choose from during my first visit for Saturday brunch that we all shared a bite off of each of our plates. Though I didnt participate, the bloody mary bar had an impressively large selection of fun mix-ins. The wait staff was... More

I would have given Meat & Potatoes a 2.5 rating if I could. It aspires to be (and I guess is) a hip and trendy restaurant, but in my experience it's mostly hype. The multi-level space is an eclectic collection of seating, which is interesting, but it's universally LOUD. The food is good enough, and I'd describe the service as... More

Meat & Potatoes is the Top Rated Restaurant in Pittsburgh. You never know who you'll see there. Reservations weeks ahead are a must. My wife and I tried it and was happy with the service and quality. It thought that the place was a little too fancy and pricey but that's just me. If money is no object give it... More
