Excellent Staff Excellent Food We actually had two waitresses that made sure our experience for our first time would be remembered. The steak was cooked to order. Could actually cut it with a fork.

One of the better steakhouses that we have enjoyed. Staff is friendly and always ready to make a recommendation. Food is outstanding and always consistently good. Wine list is extensive and have a range of prices. You can get a great meal here whether it be steak, seafood or pasta (yes pasta at a steakhouse). If you are in the... More

Same as any steak restaurant in Pittsburgh that is worth it's salt, but much easier to get to, Bistecca is expensive! If you want inexpensive, don't go there. All good: service, drinks, ambiance, mushrooms, and bread! Fantastic lobster tail and steak (Kansas City Strip)! Everything is a la carte, and our waitress worked to get our bill up, from encouraging... More

I took my husband there to celebrate his 8 year anniversary of being a non-smoker :) The menu is very extensive so you can definitely fine something you will like. My husbands filet was outstanding - he had the peppercorn topping added. I really can't say anything bad about our meal except it was a little on the pricey side.... More

That's the only negative. I have nothing bad to say about this place. The menu is on the wall before you go in, so if you are surprised because of a high bill, go learn math. Then you treat yourself to a steak here. It was very good, and the service was perfect. Not too many visits, not abandoned. Sure... More

Enjoyed dinner here on New Years Eve with my husband and friends. Food was excellent and our waitress was the best. Sorry I can't remember her name. The steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. I loved the whole experience of dining in a private room overlooking the racetrack even though it was closed for the season.... More

Pros: nice atmosphere for friends to hang out. Steak was good but I have had better steak at a more reasonable price. Service was decent. Cons: Walking through smoke to get to resturant. The crab bisque was too thick with very little crab in it. The texture was more like a paste then soup. Sweet potato casserole was dry and... More

Being that the hollandaise is what makes the oscar it was not up to your normal standard. it had... More

Janice, I'm glad to hear that you and your husband usually spend your Anniversary with us; however, I'm sorry to hear that your meal was not up to the very high standards that we have for ourselves and our guest. Our Filet Oscar and the crab cakes are two of our best dishes so I disheartened when I read this.... More

Wedge salad is amazing! My steak came out rare after ordering medium well, manager never came over to check on us, but waitress was nice! You would think for these kind of prices that steaks would be cooked correctly and if not, manager would be out to check on customers!

I ordered a large filet and it was definitely larger than advertised. I ordered it Pittsburgh rare and it was done perfect. The service was very friendly and professional .A little pricey, 45 dollars for a 4 ounce lobster tail as a side was out of control. I can buy that in a grocery store for 5.99 here in Florida,...

Thank you for the 5 Stars- I greatly appreciate it. I am happy to hear that our 10oz Filet was cooked properly and met or exceeded you expectation. Our Lobster Tails usually come in close to 10oz so I am going to talk with our Chef about this and the salt. I am thankful for the information you provided and... More
