  • Among the best north of the Burgh
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    Most of the restaurants in the North Pittsburgh metro are, to put it mildly, disappointing. When you live in a place where the epicurean standard is fries and coleslaw on a burger, and there are three marginal pizza joints on every block, I suppose that's what you should expect. Off the Hook is a major upgrade for Cranberry, PA... and even though it is a sister of Monterrey Bay on Mount Washington, it is sans the pretention. Now there is a restaurant in my hood for important business visitors and out-of-town friends.

    From the moment we walked in we were met with exceptional attention to service. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The owners stopped by to check in and discuss the menu. The menu offered some old favorites and many adventures. Service was timely. The food was beautiful, delicious, and fresh. Portions are ample and the overall atmosphere is enjoyable.

    Went for our 20th wedding anniversary. Food is absolutely spectacular. We both had A+ meals. I had the halibut and my wife had the scallops. Cooked perfectly. Best seafood outside of downtown. They even gave us a free dessert for our anniversary.

    My wife and I went to Off the Hook in Warrendale/Cranberry for her Birthday. The service, food, and atmosphere was outstanding. They even did something special for her dessert. I enjoyed a raspberry mint drink from their cocktail list, and it was very good! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves fresh seafood, unique cocktails, and a 5 star service staff.

    Every entree at our table of 4 was fabulous, staff was very friendly and pleasant. I personally (in my 65 yrs) have never had salmon so delicious and the crab cakes were better than any we have ever had, even at the shore...all sides were awesome as well. Great experience!

    Exceptional food, start to finish. We had the Ichiban and Crab Cake appetizers. There is almost no trace of filler in the crab cake. Outstanding! My wife had the Mediterranean Style Salad and ate it slowly to savor every bite. I had the French Onion Soup. The three cheese variety was flavorful and stayed hot the entire time I ate it (slurpped it?). For our entrees Cathy had the swordfish and loved it. I had the Big Eye Tuna. It was a huge piece of fish and was unbelieveably tasty. It was pan seared with seasame seeds as a coating and presentation element. The full flavor of the fish came through. Best Carrot Cake Ever. Maybe not THE best I've ever had, but it was delicious. Do not miss this gem of a restaurant!

    We took our friends to OTH for their 40th anniversary on a busy Saturday night. We were shown to our table right on time. It took a few minutes for our server to arrive but once there, he was ready for our drink order. Serving us our drinks, he told us about the specials and asked if we had any questions. We asked to have a few minutes as we wanted to talk a bit. Giving us time was no problem. We placed our starter order, and asked a couple of questions about the wine list. Two in our party ordered the halibut parmesan style, the salmon special and I had the Chilean sea bass on macadamia nuts. All were great as well was the seafood sampler appetizer and oyster. Bottom line - somewhat noisy, very good service and GREAT food!

    It's great to have a quality dining experience in the North Hills. The atmosphere and the food are both very good, you would need to go into town or one of the urban areas to find similar food quality. It's a nice environment, and the tables are spaced nicely so even though the room is larger, it does not feel crowded. We had a great waitress, service from everyone was excellent - very high marks. Prices were fair taking everything into consideration.

    The food was very fresh tasting and delicious. Portions were decent. Did not care for the way the side dishes had to be ordered for the whole table. The service was outstanding. The lighting could have been just a little brighter. All dark colored décor with dim lights is not my preference. I love good service and I would come back because of the service. If I don't return, O the H will do fine...the place was very full. Four others and I go out to dinner all over the Pittsburgh Area once a month. We have been doing it for years. I have many experiences to compare O the H to. I would recommend O the H only to certain select friends who I know would appreciate the experience. I did an online menu check so I knew the prices before hand.

    This restaurant is excellent! Every time I go there the dishes are interesting and the service is great. There is no other seafood restaurant in Pittsburgh that comes close and in all of my travels in the US I would say this is one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at. The advantage that Off The Hook would have is that I have eaten there more than 6 times now and every time is great from bread to dessert.

    Overall experience was satisfactory. Steamed clams were way too salty, but crabcake appetizer was excellent. Asparagus on swordfish was not cooked thoroughly and bernaise sauce was acceptable but not great. Swordfish was also amazing as was the sea bass with macademia nuts, even the leftovers were great the next day. Had some trouble parking (not enough handicap places), and wine list was extensive but did not have much to speak of that was not Californian. Service was on the slow side.

    After hearing some very fine reports from friends, many of whom had been there at least twice in the short time Off the Hook has been open, I was quite anxious to try it. The food just wasn't anything SPECIAL. Nothing to get excited about. My wife and i each had clam chowder and a clam roll for lunch. The clam rolls were not nearly as good as Andora's, and they were more expensive at Off the Hook's. To be perfectly honest, the clam chowder is MUCH BETTER at Eat'n Park!

    The food was definately the highlight of this restaurant - as it should be - however, the ambience left you feeling like you were in a strip mall. For the relatively high prices - they should at least have blinds on the full wall of windows overlooking the parking lot. We went for our anniversary, and were placed at a table on the main walkway - instead of a private table in the back that remained empty during our entire meal. We were slightly disappointed by that. Food highlights - oyster selection (& sauces) was great! We had sea bass, calamari, and scallops for our main courses. Everything was wonderful and the portions were satisfying.
