    At the end of our visits to Pittsburgh, my family likes to cap things off with a dinner at Mitchell's Fish Market. As always, we had a great time and a great meal. The martinis were cold and well mixed, the crispy calimari and shrimp appetizers were yummy, and each of us had wonderful fresh caught fish. My husband ordered the sharkfin pie for dessert, and it took the whole table to finish it -- we would have ordered the small version if we had known what the full order was going to be like. I am from Pittsburgh but have lived in Hawaii for the past three decades --- Pittsburgh had no fresh fish when I was growing up here. . . and since I now live on the ocean, I have high expectations for fresh fish. Mitchell's delivered.

    The menu offers few "healthy" options, but the food was very good. Considering how empty the restauarant was, there was no reason for the service to be so rushed. Soup and salad were brought at the same time; plates were removed while some at the table were still eating

    Meals were a little over priced compared to the quantity received. Scallops were small. Cobia fish piece was kind of small. Nothing fancy about the sides available. I hate sour dough bread. Nothing that exceptional. Food was good. Had taste. Not too much seasoning. The dessert was a little confusing? The mini shark fin pie looked like it was half the regular portion but the price charged was not half??? Been to much better fine dining establishments. Please offer some other kind of bread. A sour feeling in the stomach is not pleasant.

    Our plan was to start with happy hour on the deck with river view, but Pittsburgh weather being what it is, we had to go to Plan B. We ate inside, and the food was great. We really appreciate the staff's ability to add one guest to our reservation at the last minute.

    Mitchell's can be surprising good, as in their steak and lobster tail combo, and frustratingly bad, as in serving me a thin oily piece of cobia from the fish's belly- awful... It was replaced with a better cut. Why try to pawn off inferior cuts in the hope that the diner is ignorant?Excellent, if somewhat overly chatty, waiter. Lovely view of the Allegheny River from comfortable outdoor table. Inside is rather gloomy and dark- could stand a makeover...

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    Booked an online reservation for 7:30. Arrived at 7:20. At 7:50 I asked the receptionist how much longer. She said she had been trying to page us and then told me the pager was "broken" and laughed. I didn't think it was funny. We were sitting 10 feet away and she never once called my name. When we were seated we waited for a while to get an order in. At this point everyone was very hungry but the server was pleasant. It was disappointing to my guest that only one fish on the menu was wild caught. My son's fish, which he ordered grilled, was burned on one end. The Butternut Squash Tortellaci lacked much butternut squash and the lobster was chewy. Real lobster? Maybe not. This was my first visit and possibly my last.

    The food at Mitchell's is reliably good - and that's no small thing when cooking seafood. What makes the experience outstanding is how accommodating and friendly everyone is. I requested an outdoor table although the weather was getting chilly; when we got out on the back patio, we were the only ones out there! I made a comment, wondering why no one else was out on such a nice night and was casually told that it was officially closed but since I had requested a table outside, Mitchell's kindly obliged without a fuss - they even rolled over a heater to make sure we were comfortable. We had a lovely, quiet meal on the banks of the Mon.

    The food quality is generally always good to excellent. The service jumps around from fair to good. Lately seems they have hired a number of servers without personality and communicate skills, which doesn't serve the public well, and also people who don't pay that much attention to detail, so although this is one of my favorite restaurants locally, for the money you will spend, I would have to say it's not been the best experience the last few visits.

    A nice place to celebrate a special occasion - too expensive for a weekly visit (except for Happy Hour). I ordered the fruiti Di Mare which was a mistake. Seafood was very scarce and small. Mussels were overcooked and small. My husband ordered Sea Bass which was wonderful. Would order that the next time. Waitress was very accommodating and subbed green beans when my husband said he didn't like broccoli. A large group with children was seated next to us, so it was rather noisy. We will definitely return, but I will order something else. Cocktails were good

    It had been a while since my last visit, and it hardly seems like the same restaurant. The menu is much smaller and less inventive. I was disappointed that two of my favorites are no longer on the menu, the Shanghai preparation (my go to) and the Ginger Crusted Salmon. The menu of fish available is also much smaller. I ended up with crab cakes which were decent, very spicy for my taste. My husband's steak, though, was great. Others at our table very much enjoyed the oysters and scallops.

    I had always heard of Mitchell's being an excellant place to dine. We did not have a great experience, it wasn't terrible, just not great. We had 3 different waitresses/waiters which I didn't understand that and the food was just ok. My husband had a couple beers but I never got a refill on my Sangria! I ordered twin lobster tails, they were not flavorful and a little dry. The best of the whole dinner was the appetizer which was the bacon wrapped shrimp, that was delicious! We still might give another try, maybe it was an off night!
