A word from Crested Duck Charcuterie
Crested Duck's menu changes seasonally. We feature locally sourced meats and house cured charcuterie. Although we specialize in humanely raised, heritage meats, we do have vegetarian options. All meats are antibiotic, hormone and pesticide free. Produce is in season and sourced from a local urban farm. The menu is composed of small plates meant to be shared. Reservations are encouraged for our small, intimate dining room.

Please note that we take reservations via phone and allow walk-ins when possible, so if there is conflict regarding your reservation you will be contacted via phone, as soon as possible.

    My husband is a huge fan of charcuterie and he had visited Crested Duck in the past, prior to the opening of the restaurant. Everything we read on the menu sounded delicious! Everything is served tapas style, order as you go; we ordered 5 items, plus dessert---sharing everything between the two of us...all VERY GOOD. The service, atmosphere, and food were all wonderful. We will definitely be back for more!

    Great food and attentive service. The best charcuterie platter in the city by a mile. The BYOB is an added bonus. It is a little quirky and for those not familar with this part of the city it can be a little difficult to find but there is T stop in front of the restaurant and it is 2 turns off of Banksville Road - if you make it 4 turns you can go up Canton Avenue one of the steepest streets in the world.

    Everything was fantastic...food, service and cozy atmosphere. We went for a friend's birthday and just ordered round after round of small plates. The courses do take a bit of time to come out but no one minded as it was always worth the wait...just make sure that you are prepared for a nice, relaxed meal....also it's BYOB so that's a bonus! Enthusiastically recommend :)

  • Outstanding. Top 5 meals ever

    The food was outstanding. I am complete food snob and this was one of the top 5 meals I have eaten at a restaurant ever. Perfectly executed, flavorful, and unique, our taste buds were in heaven. I was thrilled that the restaurant was tapas style so that we could try so many different items. I want to go back and order one of everything off the menu. The service was also impeccable. The waiter was very attentive and pleasant. I cannot wait to go back to this restaurant. What a find!

    I was introduced to this restaurant by a friend who is a good cook herself. She told me that she had had the best meal she had every had in Pittsburgh at this restaurant. It was not a disappointment. Thomas, our server, an acquaintance from another establishment was great and the food was honest and delicious. The four cheeses paired with four different toppings was a great start. I loved the pate-can't remember the specific ingredients-but smooth and delicious beyond belief. My memory is not the best for the details so I can't help out much beyond this but I highly recommend it-to both novices and those with cultivated palates. The corking fee is just $5 per person so bring a good wine and enjoy!

    Marvelous small plates, attention to detail, and service. If it can be done with meat, the Crested Duck team is doing it brilliantly!

    Chef Kevin handles all types of meat in such amazing, innovative ways, it would be a shame if you didn't try everything! Even his vegetarian dishes are crafted beautifully - and best of all, aren't masquerading as a stand-in for a type of meat.
