Read much on the latest "farm to table" movement and Legume is always mentioned, so decided to try. Went for lunch and was not disappointed. Simple is sometimes so much better than a complicated production and Legume seems to do simple right.

Will definitely return.

A hair in my salad that was not mine.... fish was done nicely, but small portion. The presentation was graceful but the placement of the fish over the food accompaniments was almost like a mix-mashed matrix, making the separate favors hard to taste separately. We sat at a booth-type chair-bench and chairs with a table and the back of the bench was a hard, glossy varnish wood plywood...cheap looking and very uncomfortable. The other parties with me ordered braised pork ("so-so") and though the stuffed ravioli was flavorful, but, again, small portion. The waitress was nice and helpful, but it was forever to get our check.

Legume is a foodie heaven. Fresh farm-to-table ingredients and main courses. Great Bar. The ever changing menu is at its best in the fall when the ever popular pork-belly salad emerges from its slumber. So good, we ordered another for desert!

We had a delicious dinner at this wonderful restaurant. The corn soup was delicious and the halibut was one of the best we've ever had. The ingredients were very fresh and the chef did an excellent job in cooking the halibut. The fresh baked (in house) bread was fantastic. Very few restaurants bake their own bread any more. We would rank this restaurant as one of the best in the country. Their halibut tops the one that we had at the Sooke Harbor House in Victoria, B.C.

Had a superb meal here with a group of nine - and all of us left extremely happy. The setting is somewhat casual, but in a very sophisticated way. The food is the star - a changing menu that features fresh and carefully sourced seasonal ingredients. What is great about the dishes is their focus and deceptive simplicity. There are only a very few concentrated flavors going on in any dish - which is a refreshing change from the trend toward way too many flavors, painted dabs of sauces, and things tweezered onto your plate. So, no, you may not get the most spectacular photos of your dishes to post on social media, but you will get something that is incredibly delicious. Coming from the foodie-obsessed Bay Area, I would love to have this restaurant here. Lucky Pittsburgh!
