    My boyfriend asked where he could take me for my birthday dinner and Pittsburgh Blue was at the top of my list. It was a perfect evening...very romantic, exceptional food and wine and great service. We will return!

    We have been to Pittsburgh Blue a few times and have always had an amazing experience, however our last time there was just ok. The food was pretty decent, although the buffalo shrimp we ordered were tough. Also, we are used to amazing service however our waitress seemed a little overwhelmed and had many tables. Our appetizer came before our drinks, and our dessert came well after our dessert drinks (we had already finished them). We also had to track down a different waiter to get our bill. All in all, not something I would expect from Pittsburgh Blue :(.

    Great food and service as always! My only complaint is the hostess is terrible, she acted like we didn't exist! We had reservations for 2 at 6:30 and she started to seat the party of three that had reservations at 7:00 Before us! Very very annoying. We had her before and she was not friendly then either. Get rid of her!

    Being a business traveler in Sales, I take customers to a lot of high end restaurants around the US. Pittsburgh Blue had the proper pricing and ambiance for a high end steak place, but the food was a tier or two lower. The steak was tougher then it should have been and not properly seared. There is a line between seared and burnt and unfortunately my steak had crossed that line. The seasoning on the steak was bland to the point I was eyeing the bottle of A-1 on the table, and in my mind no good steak should need steak sauce. Service was good, but not great and the rest of the meal (Appetizer, soup, sides) was good but if you are going to price like a top tier steakhouse, everything should be great and memorable.

    We had a delicious dinner complete with two sides to share. We loved the Birthday cupcakes and that really added to our family celebration! We had steak, prime rib, and walleye and all were extremely tasty. Our server was very attentive and informative about our choices! Thanks, we will be back again.

    There are many restaurants that serve great steak and other entrees but they seem to have more reasonable prices. We enjoyed our experience and certainly loved the waiter but the food and experience can be duplicated elsewhere at a far better cost.

    We typically visit Pittsburgh Blue on special occasions, which is several times a year. The quality of the food is outstanding. The service we receive is always friendly and welcoming but there are times where the waiter seems to be a bit hurried. Overall, an excellent dining experience each and every time.

  • Steak...to salty not enough flavor
    SteakGuru
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My fiance and I decided we wanted to go on a romantic date at an upscale restaurant, so we decided on Pittsburgh Blue. Because it is a little "spendy" we decided to split a meal. We ordered the Filet Mignon with a lobster tail; $60 and loaded mashed potatoes; $8. However when we got the food, it was smaller then expected, the steak was supposed to be medium well, and it was well done, it was salty, and not really any other flavor to it. The lobster on the other hand was amazing, very flavorful just way to small. The potatoes were horrible, super dry and bland. They topped it with bacon pieces...which tasted like rubber. $86 including tip for the meal...so not worth it. Will never go here again.

    Excellent food, outstanding service. One person in our party didn't care for the salted crust on her filet and they immediately and quickly provided her another entrée of her choice. Both the waiter and the manager were extremely attentive. Prices are high so this would be special occasion dining.

    Our service was great and the wine was superb. Now the steaks were not as good as other high end steak houses. I had the covenanted Cowboy Ribeye and it was good but not great. My wife and I both had it medium rare and noticed no juices on the plate and how can that be possible when done medium rare . We were trying to figure out if there frozen cuts of meat or what the deal is. It was a light pink inside but not over cooked. It was pink throughout with a warm cool center. We hoping it would be closer to the kind of steaks you get at Ruths Chris but its not close. I paid $50 for my ribeye and it tasted like a $25 cut. Its a good place but its a good place that just seems overpriced for what you get.

    I was immediately drawn to the lobster items on their lunch menu, and ordered the lobster tacos. Our server pointed out that there were only 3 small tacos - probably not enough for a meal. We got the lobster tacos for an appetizer and I ordered the scallop sliders. The waiter was right - what a great appetizer. I would have been disappointed if I'd ordered that as my entrée.

    My husband and I love to go to Pittsburgh Blue. We like it more than Manny's! Unfortunately our visit Monday evening didn't live up to past experiences. It was easy to see our server was very busy. She was very nice and attentive when she had time but it was clear time was limited during the beginning portion of our visit. Our food was okay. My husband ordered a porterhouse and it was marbled like a rib eye. He was disappointed in the cut of meat he was given. I ordered fish and it was okay. Not bad but not stellar either. Overall our experience wasn't terrible but at the end of the day it didn't match past experiences. Since we love PB so much I thought I'd share the comments. This was our 1st undesirable experience.

    I had the lobster roll and it was way too much sandwich with hardly any lobster. Also the seafood sampler was pretty skimpy. Overall, highly over priced. My poor mother ordered the lobster caprese and that was a sad plate. My 6 year old wouldn't even be near full eating this. Great service just not so good dining.

    We enjoyed our evening at Pittsburgh Blue very much, however, we were greatly disappointed that while we had a reservation for 6:30 p.m. we were not seated until almost 7:15 p.m. If someone would have had tickets to a concert, show or other commitment they would not have made the time allowed due to this delay. We think that this fine restaurant should be able to keep to its scheduled reservations or closer that this much of a delay.

    Have been to this location several times. Each time the food is good but not great…expectations are raised each time since its associated with Manny's and is promoted as top tier steak place. Prices continue to increase as well and now over $40 for a ribeye…so expect it to be fantastic. For whatever reason, guess its a combination of things, it just doesn't get into that memorable range. Server was very good, anxious to help with suggestions and let us take our time….she was very good. Thinner crowd than in the past suggests that others are seeing the same thing.

    My husband and I wanted surf and turf, so he ordered the rib eye and I ordered the lobster bucatini. His steak was done to perfection, nicely seared and so tender! The bucatiini came with a nice portion of lobster and delicious seasoning. Plenty for us to share. We also had the hash browns with bacon and blue cheese. Loved it.

    My wife brought me there for my birthday. I was skeptical because I wasn't thrilled with spending over a hundred dollars for a dinner for two. Service was fabulous, very friendly. Food was all to die for, but the filet mignon was so amazing it's difficult to describe. It was perfectly seasoned and chared on the outside, warm pink center. So tender I was able to cut through it with my fork. I was almost done devouring it when I realized there was steak sauce on the table, but it was good I think using steak sauce would been wrong. Dinner, drinks, salad, and a side of loaded mash came to $160 including tip. We didn't even bat an eye, it was that good.

    Went there for my b day with my familyrics and asked for a booth ahead of time and explained the reason for needing to keep my kids blocked in. I got there and the hostess said we couldn't sit in a booth. She was unpleasant and confrontational from the moment I walked into the door. Server was pleasant. One way out same hostess started talking poorly about my family and my mom overheard and said that she was the first person people see when they walk in the door and she should have a smile on her face. She shot my mom a sarcastic smile. My mom spoke with the manager. I have been to Edina and have absolutely loved it there. This location will never see me again.
