Pittsburgh Blue - Edina
The food was really good,The food was really good, however they put our party of 6 in the back room. We felt like we were in a closet because waiters would come in and out getting placemats & table clothes.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and prime rib only average.Nice setting, good service, food wasn't as good as we had hoped. The medium rare steak was medium, and the medium rare prime rib was very rare.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOMEThe food was excellent! The service was outstanding! Great place to eat - highly recommended. Expensive!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectWe went for dinner on a Friday night and each of our party of 4 ordered steaks (1 medium, 1 medium plus, and 2 medium well orders) and they were all excellent and cooked perfectly to order. Also, the service was fantastic - the staff at the hostess stand were so friendly, the server was knowledgeable and friendly, and she and the person clearing the tables were each attentive without being intrusive. Overall the evening was fantastic and we will definitely be returning.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch Wait-staffThe wait-staff was very attentive and personable, it made our dining experience very enjoyable.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food for extravagant priceAs in many steak houses the steak and prime rib were quite good but the prices that were charged were insane. There are many other fine steak houses in the Twin Cities that offer the same excellent food without the sticker shock. The mashed potatoes came to us fully loaded as promised but were tepid at best and our waiter checked back with us only once to see if all was ok. In a restaurant that has "snob appeal" perhaps the food should match.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest SteaksPittsburgh Blue always has phenomenal steaks. Their sides are very large, so always make sure to share with at least 1-2 people. The waiter seemed to forget about us from time to time and messed up our drink order multiple times, but overall decent service. Always the go-to spot for special occasions. Quick pricey, but the steaks are out of this world.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationWent out to eat to celebrate a birthday celebration. Sat down, got a beverage, was greeted by the most cheerful and pleasant server. He explained everything so well and always made sure we were enjoying our food and wine once we received them. Pittsburgh Blue is definitely something I will be recommending to family and friends. Yes it was busy because it was Friday, but due to the amazing atmosphere, you didn't notice how busy it was. I give this restaurant two thumbs up! You definitely went above and beyond anything I had expected.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMtoo noisyMuch much much too loud - we were seated in a booth (which we requested since it's usually quieter) right in front of the open kitchen. Between the kitchen noises and the staff congregating right by our booth it was difficult to hold a conversation. Unfortunately, there were no other open booths or we would have asked to change.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic! MyThe food was fantastic! My husband and I shared the Cowboy Ribeye and it just melted in our mouths. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMServer forgot to bring outServer forgot to bring out yummy appertiser (complimentary pastry bucket), we had to ask for it.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMwe love Pittsburgh Blueconsistently excellent. a bit higher priced, but the quality is worth it. Not like some other places where you pay
top dallar and it leaves something to be desired. I love their unique martinis, Try one.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!Food and service was fantastic! The waffle covered with strawberries and whipped cream was mouth watering. The mushroom scramble was delicious and filling, everything was cooked to perfection.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service exceptionalExcellent service exceptional menu and will do special requests without batting an eye.
Wonderful for groups and special occasions high end service but you can wear jeans5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for an AnniversaryPerfect for an Anniversary dinner! Food was superb and our waiter, Matthew, was very attentive. We will dine here again!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice but pricey lunchMet some friends for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated in a booth, which would not have been my preference. With handbags and shopping bags was a bit crowded. It was, however, somewhat private for conversation as the restaurant was not crowded, probably due to the holiday weekend.The food, once again, was very very good, but the lunch menu prices are higher than most similar restaurants and the cheapest glass of wine is $10.
Service was adequate but not special. The one glaring service failure was that two of my friends decided to split an entrée, but it arrived on one plate and they had to ask for an empty plate and transfer half of the food themselves. It should have been split in the kitchen before serving. That was unacceptable.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPeaceful patio setting & great foodI enjoyed a long business lunch on the patio and it was wonderful. The only reason I gave the service 4 stars was because we waited a long time trying to get our check. Everything was outstanding however, wish the waiter would not have disappeared in the end. Fantastic and quiet spot for outdoor dining.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMComments on Pittsburgh BlueI have experienced and enjoyed Pittsburgh Blue on three occasions---two for Sunday brunch/lunch and one for a weekday lunch. Each visit has been excellent. The food is superb and the atmosphere great!!! The noise level, even when there are greater numbers in the restaurant, is low. The seating arrangement lends itself to a sense of privacy and comfort. Staff are appropriately attentive, knowledgeable, and welcoming. I will be returning and bringing others.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service. Food was fantastic,Great service. Food was fantastic, especially the unique flavor of the hash browns!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchMy husband and I enjoyed the flank steak and the shrimp and grits. The shrimp and grits was outstanding and would do again. The grits were firm (more like a polenta) and the steak was excellent - however, I expected more blue cheese in the blue cheese has browns (flavor was VERY mild).
We'll be back - often!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for graduation celebrationOur party of ten had a wonderful time at Pittsburgh Blue. We are all meat eaters and the steaks were done perfect. Great seasonings and tender! The family style sides were the right amount and a great way to serve them. The service was extraordinary and definitely made the evening more special. Our server had personality galore and made sure everyone was having a great time. She even brought a chair cushion for grandma to sit on!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgood brunchWent for mothersday brunch. Food was great and service was good as well. They have a good variety of breakfast and lunch items on the brunch menu and the full menu available. New Orleans Benedict was very good5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPure DelightAn incredible experience from the minute you walk in and are greeted by the hostess - the person who seats you, the Waitron with perfect manners and professionalism, and the food, beyond expectation. The quality of all of the Parasole Brands in the Twin Cities is above First Class.

It is a great restaurant that has great food and service. It isn't as pricey as a Manny's or Kincaid's but the food quality is great. Don't get me wrong, manny's is an excellent restaurant, but the food at Pittsburgh Blue is the best outside of downtown Minneapolis. On Sunday lunch they have a Hangover burger that is excellent. When we have been there for dinner, pretty much anything is great. We like their calamari for an appetizer. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service - food, not so muchFor a place that is known for excellent steaks, there were issues. The first steak on my salad was mostly fat & chewy - had to send back which the server graciously did. The second one was too rare (medium rare when I requested medium) and also fatty. Not impressed. The scallops benedict that my mom selected was overly salty and the size of an appetizer. On the flip side, the staff is excellent and do a great job - but surprisingly the food could be better.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant dining experience!Great restaurant dining experience!

He also had no problem with two of us splitting a meat entree. In short, he made the ordering process smarter for us, and we didn't wind up with all kinds of leftover food that no one could eat. The filets were sublime. We will go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBlue ReviewI surprised my husband with dinner reservations to celebrate our anniversary. Neither of us had ever been here, or even heard of this place for that matter. The atmosphere was quite inviting. I was pleased to see a huge variety of diners. Our server was a peach. She was friendly and knowledgable and made absolutely every effort to make sure that it was a pleasant experience for us. The steaks were out of this world, and the green beans were some of the best I have ever had. I am sure we will be back...5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome SpotA must visit.

Both times we had excellent service. Our wait people both had great personalities and knew their product(s). They were friendly, but not intrusive. The food was very good on both occasions, as it should be. For us, this is a special occasion place, because it is a little spendy.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch steaks were very good,Lunch steaks were very good, we had a fun, attentive waitress.

This was our second time eating there and again the food was excellent! Our first time that we dined at Pittsburgh Blue our waiter was amazing, very energetic, helpful, and approached our table right away. Our last visit we were not very impressed with our server initially ( he did warm up though) We ended up waiting about 10-15 minutes before he approached our table to take our drink order.. Thank goodness for our bread and water guy :) Overall great night, and again the food was excellent!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMReally Nice.If you like red meat or seafood you will be please.

Our waitress was amazing! She took the time to describe all of the different steaks to my husband, even showing him examples. If the prices were lower we would be frequent customers. It was a delicious night out!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe started with the lobsterWe started with the lobster and sweet corn fritters. Delicious. SO good. For the main course we had prime rib and the halibut special. The halibut was not anything remotely to write home about, but my husband raved about the prime rib. Sides and dessert were exceptional, as was the service. Our server was easily the best we've ever had. Overall, a very positive experience, and my husband's new favorite restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, terrific services,Excellent food, terrific services, and overall excellent!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great butThe service was great but the noise level was too loud; I don't remember it being that loud previously.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch with 'the girls'We gathered for a 'girls' birthday, catchup lunch.
