Diner Reviews
  • "Unfortunately we sat in the small back room with a very noisy baby and parents that were indiffernt to the other people around them. I don't know what the solution could have been but the experience was unpleasant."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "All passing servers, staff, etc. stopped by to ask how our meal was going, not just our specific server. This is a much appreciated touch."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The cocktails were great and the food was very tasty. The service was great. I had made a mistake with the booking, having booked it a week later than intended, but they were flexible and got us seated."

  • "eclectic menu differentiates this restaurant...burgers and Mac and Cheese are outstanding!"

  • "The food on my 2nd visit to Meat and Potatoes really stood out. My friend and I had the steak tartare to start. The peanuts were an interesting mix to the tartare and the sauce on the side had a nice kick to it. Next was a large plate of mussels. The butter sauce was savory with a little spice. The brussel sprouts were outstanding. Unlike other establishments in Pittsburgh, these do not have bacon with them. They have a nice breading and are deep fried with a zesty mayonnaise to dip them in. Lastly, for a main dish, I ordered the papparadelle with Bolognese sauce, short rib, pancetta and pork shoulder. I couldn't eat it all that night but it was also terrific for lunch the next day. One drawback for dining was the very small tables."

  • "We eat at Meat & Potatoes at least every couple months, and it never fails to be a spectacular experience. The service is unpretensious, and the food speaks for itself. Definitely try the lenten Friday menu for lunch--it is SO good! I've had the shrimp po' boy 3 times now and it is delicious--as good or better than you'll find in New Orleans!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Both appetizers (fried pickles/brussel sprouts) were great. I do not eat meat so had some initial concerns but there were plenty of fish and several vegetarian items on the menu. The fish tacos were good and very filing, I could not finish the two (probably because I filled up on the great appetizers). My "carnivore" colleagues had various meat dishes which they loved. The waiter was very attentive and helpful."

  • "We have dined at M&P many times. The host, our server Shane and the bar staff are all excellent. I have never had the same cocktail twice and have enjoyed them all. We are, however, getting a bit tired of the menu after trying most things at least once. I get it, that on special occasions I may throw dietary caution to the wind, but the heavy handed amount of fat and salt on EVERYTHING is getting to be a turn off. Can we be more creative by avoiding the equivalent of pork belly as tasty as it may be as a go to ingredient? Does the grilled bread on the cheese board require butter? My favorite part of a meal is desert and I can barely allow myself a chocolate pots de creme which btw is excellent as well as all he deserts we have had."

  • "Food is delicious - make sure to get the mac and cheese app!!"

  • "I took my husband to Meat & Potatoes for a special night out. He had been wanting to go for quite some time but I was doubtful since I'm a pescatarian (a vegetarian who eats fish). I was blown away. Everything was delicious! My salmon was melt-in-your-mouth amazing. My husband loved his steak. Every aspect of the meal tasted good but when mixed together, it tasted even better. The service was good & the atmosphere was nice. It was on the dark side with just enough lighting to be able to comfortably see. We thought the tables were a bit on the small side & rather close together but that was only a minor complaint. Overall, it was a fantastic experience & we can't wait to return."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "A great place to eat before a show ... if you can get a seat. Food is good, although a little heavy ... think pub food but with unique twists. The menu is not as meat-laiden as the name suggests ... this is not a steak house! Wait staff was great and very efficient!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The smoked whiskey buffalo wings were amazing--smoking flavor, perfectly crispy skin. The mac and cheese with pulled pork was also delicious, but I warn you it is incredibly rich. I had the pot roast for my main course. The potatoes, vegetables and sauce were fantastic, but the pot roast itself was maybe a little bit bland in comparison. Overall the whole meal was yummy though. My partner had the wagyu--the meat itself was phenomenal, and the pickled and deconstructed salad were nice little treats, but the sauce on the wagyu was a bit overpowering. But again, it was all-in-all very delicious and I loved the electronica/energetic music and the lighting. Would highly recommend!"

  • "Food was excellent. Service was great. As we were a table for four, the table was great. Tables for two are too close together and uncomfortable. It is impossible to have any kind of meaningful conversations at those tables. Everything else about the restaurant is great!"

  • "This restaurant is perfect for dining before a performance in the Cultural District. It has an upbeat vibe, attentive service and delicious, well-presented, appropriately priced dishes."

    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Getting reservations was so hard- waited 2 weeks before we could get a time that suited us. First thing we noticed as we got there was that the tables were very close together- crammed almost- so there wasn't much privacy. Service was good- not exceptional. The drinks were strong and well made. Mac n Cheese was excellent- the highlight of the night!!! Entrees were good but not as good as the appetizers. Overall, it was a good experience but not outstanding as I was told it would it- so a little disappointed but it was definitely worth the try."

  • "Went to Meat and Potatoes before a concert. Our server, Emily, asked if we had a show to go to and what time. I thought that was very thoughtful. My husband and I both had the special which was a 10 oz filet with balsamic onions and crispy red potatoes with blu cheese. It was one of the best meals we've ever had! To top it off, we had a Moscow Mule drink. They make it with fresh ginger. Never had one before, but will definitely have another! This restaurant is popular in Pittsburgh and I can see why!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Love this place. The drinks are excellent. They make the best Manhattan in town. I had the filet special which was the best steak I've had in a long time. The Brussels Sprouts and fried pickles were excellent. We have them every time. Our table wasn't ready until about half an hour after our reservation time but everything was so good once we sat, it was all forgiven. Oh, our waitress, who we have had before, was very attentive without hovering. She too was great. I'm thrilled to have a place to bring my San Francisco, Portland, and NY City relatives that I feel can stand up against their best restaurants."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The atmosphere is lively and upbeat, with a sizable bar in the center of the restaurant. There is a plethora of food and drink options on the menu and we were highly satisfied with our meals. Devils on horseback, bone marrow, pork belly tacos, & a wagyu beef special were all fantastic. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "nice place to go before a show in downtown! Excellent Casear Salad & De-Lish pork taco's! Besides the pork i could not tell you what was on them because it was somewhat on the "dark" in there but they were very good!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Meat & Potatoes did not disappoint! I enjoyed my first Blood & Sand, followed by the knockout Mac & Cheese with a glass of the Petite Petit. All quite delicious. My husband enjoyed the roasted half chicken. Rachel our server was exceptional. Because the tables are relatively close, the dining experience can be influenced by one's neighbors. The couple next to us was celebrating paying off their mortgage and we got into a truly pleasant conversation with them. They made our evening all the more enjoyable. We went to a play next door and returned for dessert and drinks. In all, a great evening!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We've eaten here several times.. tried the bone marrow, the 34 oz steak, mac and cheese (to die for), and several appetizers. All have been delicious. The only complaint would be the restaurant set-up in that the seating (2 tops especially) is a little cramped. Fast, friendly service and great bar choices."

  • "Previously had dinner here and LOVED it! Came back for Sunday Brunch and IWW are still as impressed! Great Bloody Mary Bar, great food! ServiceWasExcellent!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Wonderful after theater dining-We got there a little early for our reservations, but were seated in five minutes-waiter was very good, helpful without hovering-I had the pork shank special that was perfectly tender and with some unexpected heat, but the sweetness of the sauce provided balance. They were out of most of the deserts, but that is to be expected at 11 pm. My Manhattan tasted like straight bourbon on the rocks, I couldn't taste the other ingredients. The 80's pop music seemed loud and a strange choice for dining, but we didn't have to yell to talk, and it just seemed to provide a good energy to the evening. This is the place I would bring friends and family visiting Pittsburgh."

  • "This the 4 th time we have eaten here and each time have really enjoyed the vibe and the food."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The menu and atmosphere made me really want to like this restaurant, but I'm afraid it delivered below expectations. Pacing was off - it took 20 minutes to receive our first "snack" and 45 min. before we got our appetizer. When we asked for extra bread to go with our bone marrow, it took an extra 15 min and by the time the bread arrived the fats in the marrow had coagulated. Food was decent - fried pickles were fun and bone marrow was good before it coagulated. Steak was okay, but nothing compared to the steak houses of New York or anything out west (Denver, Texas). Likewise, the mussels were nothing special and the fries more suited for a ballpark than a restaurant. I really wanted to like this place; it just failed to deliver."

  • "Visiting from Cincinnati for two nights. Enjoyed everything here, ordered way too much food! Good selection of canned beers, cocktails and some wine. Ordered cheese plate, charcuterie, Brussels, ahi tacos, pork belly tacos, Caesar salad, poutine, shad roe special, duck, pub burger, Kobe corn dog. Between four of us we spilt some of that but took a lot to go. Will definitely be back."

  • "This is the second time we have dined at Meat & Potatoes for a birthday celebration. We were not disappointed. They are so wonderful from the moment you walk in, they take your coats and seat you promptly. The cocktails are great, and the food! Get the chicken wings. They are AMAZING. The hanger steak is to die for as well. You will not be disappointed spending a well-deserved Saturday night out at this place."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Meat and Potatoes is why you go to a gastropub. The food is good, the bar is excellent, the atmostphere is warm. It's a big-city feel in our medium-sized town. You can order inexpensive appetizers or pricey full course meals; it doesn't matter; you are welcomed and well-treated regardless of what you spend. this is my go-to downtown place."

  • "Party of 4 on a Friday afternoon for the Fish Fry menu. Absolutely fantastic food, great atmosphere. Waitress was a bit unfriendly, but it wasn't a big deal; she kept our drinks coming and everyone left happy. Definitely a winner for Fridays during Lent!"

  • "This restaurant is a great example of what you can do with a smaller menu and focused attention to detail. The food was absolutely amazing and all 5 of us loved the food. The lemon cooler box pie was excellent. Also - don't forget about "Devils on the Halfshell" They might sound strange - but they're great!! Thanks, Matt Goldstein (Chicago)"

  • "My wife and I went for Brunch on Saturday and it was excellent. She had Chicken & Waffles. Huge portion of chicken. It was excellent as was the Bourbon Bacon Syrup. I had Brisket & Eggs. Great combination of flavors and the brisket was very tender. The Kim Chee it is served with is a little spicy. Service was great. If you are seated near the bar area it is a little crowded and louder. You feel like the people next to you are on top of you. It was not so close that you could hear conversations but it was close,"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We waited weeks for our reservation but have had equal meals at other downtown spots. Our waiter made recommendations. One of us took his advice. The other didn't and regretted it. Not a lot of options for someone who is not a big carnivore. Excellent appetizer and desert. Flat iron steak tasty. Cornish hen and sides disappointing."

  • "Wonderful, always surprising meal. Excellent service, especially for pre-show."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This was my fifth trip and it still blows my mind each time. I haven't been disappointed yet. Some people like to complain about the service, and I think they have the wrong expectations. They asked if we were attending a show, suggested food options that might not be ready given the prep time, took care of an accidentally dropped fork in about 5 seconds after it hit the ground, etc. The return of a server may feel long to some, but it's just part of a nice, non-rushed experience. I already have two more reservations in the books for future events, can't wait."

  • "All menu items were appealing. Ordered the steak fo rtwo since this was a special occasion and our first time. We were not disappointed by our selection. Tasty, juicy, suculent with the best sauted mushrooms on the side. The portion size was more than adequate, so much so that we finished off the steak the next day and it was just as good at that time. Would go back again when the opportunity presents itself."
