Meat & Potatoes
Amazing and InventiveThe chef is taking very ordinary foods like salmon and pork chops – and totally amping them up. The creativity of the dishes served is just outstanding5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day EventAttended Meat and Potatoes on Mother's Day and it was fantastic. Our waitress was efficient, knowlegable, and friendly. We had to make our concert on time and she made it happen. My third visit to Meat and Potatoes, the food was great! They are always consistent. Oh, yes the manhatteans were exceptional. Kudos to the bar.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch on Sundays with ZimmieLove the idea of a summer time Brunch with amazing Bloody Mary's and of course DJ Zimmie on the tables.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchExciting atmosphere for a great brunch. The food and menu are diverse and unique to this restaurant, and you can't beat the bloody mary bar.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun pre show mealEnjoyed the meal and several choices were available to make the decision difficult. Portions plenty big. Service was great5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food with a changing menuI have eaten lunch a couple times at Meat and Potatoes and was looking forward to my first time eating dinner there for 2 main reasons: 1. there was an awesome lamb entree on the menu that I knew my wife would love; and 2. I had eaten the best bread pudding in my life there when last at lunch. Unfortunately, neither item was on the menu the night we went there for dinner. But the food we did have was delicious and my pork entree was large enough to make 2 people full so we were not that disappointed.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMToo many bus boysI've been to your restaurant about 4-5 times prior to my last visit. It's always been awesome.
The ONLY issue that I had with my last visit was this:
Monday night I brought my NYC client there for dinner to celebrate a new account. We were engaged in conversation and not even 1/4 through our dinners when the bus boys and girls started coming over about every 5/10 minutes trying to grab our plates and ask if we were done. This happened about six times. It was rude and we were pretty turned off by about the third ask. There were several open tables around us so we found this very weird. I should never feel rushed out of an expensive restaurant.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timerTHE FOOD WAS AMAZING! Can't wait to go back for lunch and dinner.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding foodFor brunch, you can't ask for anything more than the short rib hash. Delicious! Bellinis and Irish coffee are also wonderful. You can eat at the bar, so if reservations for two or three are not available, I'd try and see if spots are available at the bar.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwould be crowded when packed.would be crowded when packed. some tables are very close together. Excellent steak and frites. the pickled salad was a little funky for my tastes but very unique.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHipster ParadiseOne of my husband's first comments after checking out the decor, bar and menu was that the restaurant was trying too hard and was so hipster it became pretentious. I won't disagree with those statements; a beer list filled with cans of IPA (there are a couple other options plus a few on tap) was the first clue. All that aside, this is a great restaurant. The service was quick and friendly and the waitress was aware of our show's start time based on the reservation confirmation call. The food was great - the most delicious was the mussels (especially with the bread we added to sop up the Tom Kha like sauce). Overall, this was a fun dinner; just be aware that it gets noisy early and you'll probably be seated (very) close to other diners.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunch at its best!Loved the Bloody Mary Bar & the DJ gave brunch an energetic feel4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI had lunch here twice. BothI had lunch here twice. Both times the food was delicious & the service was great. The only thing I would say is a negative is the size of the restaurant. We were seated in booth/chair pair that was shared by multiple people. It was a bit cramped & not an intimate experience. It was very easy to hear other patrons conversations as they could hear ours. That was uncomfortable, but overall the food was delicious & the service was great. I would go back, but request to not sit in the booth row.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. NoisyGreat food and service. Noisy making conversation difficult.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI first saw Meat & PotatoesI first saw Meat & Potatoes featured on a television show and thought it would be a good place to try. We ordered the Meat & Potatoes For Two from the menu. You get a good sized rib eye (34 oz) with huge steak type fries, sauteed mushrooms, and a large section of bone with marrow! Make reservations (we did) to ensure getting a seat. Among the highlights, the moment that I accidentally dropped my lap napkin onto the floor, a gentleman who was not our waiter immediately brought me a clean and folded replacement. The only thing that I thought was a negative was the lighting. I understand the concept of subdued lighting for dining but the very dim lighting made it VERY hard to read the menus.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my fave spotsThis is one of my fave spots in Pittsburgh. Everytime I go I'm amazed by the good and the impeccable service.
Always busy but definitely a well- oiled machine.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNummies!!Very energetic brunch scene, dj playing fitting music for brunch w a techno spin on it.

The food is consistently outstanding, and the portions are huge.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date NightI treated my boyfriend to dinner here because I love going to a restaurant with great food and he just wants chicken wings and a good draft. So this was an amazing accommodation for the both of us: great food without the "frou-frou" names and plating. The draft list was original and had great variety. The manu was also unique but comforting. We couldn't help but order too much and have to take some home. I can't wait to go back to try more of the menu.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been here twice andI have been here twice and it is my favorite restaurant.

This time I had brought some clients who were in Pittsburgh from overseas, and both were thoroughly impressed at the experience. M&P is now cemented as one of my go-to favorites for a variety of occasions.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Restaurant tablesGreat food. Restaurant tables are very small and very close together. Other than that it was excellent ... Just a bit uncomfortable sitting so close. I would recommend sitting at the bar.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy short rib flatbread wasMy short rib flatbread was excellent, and friends enjoyed their pot roast and salads.

The service was superb and the food was fantastic - a bit unusual, reasonably priced.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMvery busy and noisy...foodvery busy and noisy...food eclectic...part of mystique4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMJoy In Your Mouth!!I went here for my birthday yesterday for the first time. I had been waiting to try this place out for a year now after hearing rave reviews for a while. This place was fantatic!! The service was suberb, and the food was even better! I'd like to thank our server, Matt, on the awesome service he gave us. My boyfriend and I both ordered the flat iron steak, and were on the verge of being depressed when we were close to the end of our meals. Everything about this place is amazing! I've been to a lot of places that are touted as "perfect", and I can usually find some small fault, because I can be petty like that. Meat and Potaoes truly is perfect. The service is attentive without being annoying, the ambience is fancy yet casual, and the FOOD4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly dissapointment with thisOnly dissapointment with this restaurant was that our reservation was made for 8pm, they still were not able to seat us until around 8:30. At that time the restaurant had already ran out of a few of their dishes, one of which I had wanted based on previewing the menu online. The restaurant did redeem itself by offering the first round of drinks on the house.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeness in foodSecond trip to M&P. last time I had the duck which is superb. This time we both had the Pot Roast... I honestly was tempted to like my plate. Also we had the devils on horse back (dates wrapped in bacon) and the fried brussel sprouts, both were delicious and something we've never seen elsewhere.
The restaurant has a retro mets modern coolness about it.
Waitstaff and manager were nice and attentive.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and there was plenty of it. I ended up with a ton of leftovers. My only complaints were the level of noise (it was rather loud) and the tables are fairly close together. I felt as if I were eating with the couple next to us as well.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch!Went for brunch - I had the BPLT and my friend had the eggs benedict. Both were great! We had a reservation, which is always helpful there! It was very busy (a Saturday 12:30pm) with a brunch/lunch crowd. Bustling, friendly environment with mostly "heavy" meal options. Will definitely return, and would definitely recommend!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMeat and Potatoes one of the bestMeat and Potatoes is by far one of our favorite eating spots in the 'burgh. The food is top notch, the drinks are amazing and the service is bar none. We find ourselves there at least once a week. And not only do they do amazing dinners but there brunch is one of the best ever. I have never had anything there that I didn't enjoy and I have never left without a smile on my face.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here - I thinkFirst time here - I think I would have been happy with almost anything on the menu, as everything looked great.

Reservation was available on time and served in time to make out theater time.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMEach time we visit Meat &Each time we visit Meat & Potatoes, one of the toughest decisions is choosing from their menu. Everything looks amazing! The first time we looked at the menu, there were a couple items that stood out because they are personal favorites. But we still haven't even been able to try them because each time we've visited something else has jumped out at us! It wasn't that busy when we first got there (although we were eating early) but the place was buzzing by the time we left. This time we decided to just order a bunch of items from their Snacks and Appetizers list. The mussels are well worth it. The portions are worth the money and the food was excellent! If you're a fan of the gastropub movement you won't be disappointed.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing. I can'tThe food was amazing. I can't wait to return. There were 4 of us, we all had something different and we were all very pleased with our choices. The service was very good which I was surprised at because the place was packed.

Little did I know they would have a DJ set up spinning records. We could not hear and I felt extremely embarrassed I took them there. Luckily the food was extremely good but I was very disappointed on how loud the music was.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMlove.love.love.We have been here several times for brunch and we have never been disappointed. An all around outstanding dining experience everytime. Top notch service with reasonable prices for amazing food and unique delicious drinks.
