Legume Ratings and Reviews
Love that they use local ingredients. With that as the case, the menu is small (as expected). Same sides are used for most dishes, etc. I had the lamb steak which was an interesting way to prepare lamb. I ordered medium rare and it was medium or even well, though the server let me know ahead of time that due to the way the steak is cut and different muscle directions, it was difficult to cook evenly. Still, it was good. Just not memorable. My wife had the pork chop, which was very good. Both came with a potato/turnip mash which was ok. Kimchi was good. A little too much spice drowned out some flavor. In general, the service and the ambiance were great. The food was good and I may be back to sample the different seasonal menus. Just not good enough to cause me to WANT to come back.
A very pleasant dining experience ina comfortable setting with great service from the wait staff. The food options on the menu were diverse but not excessive and the plates of food were delicious and presented well. The bread was super too.
We celebrated our anniversary/new years eve with a wonderful meal at Legume. Service was outstanding and the food was so good! I had the lamb which was full of flavor, scallops were superb and chocolate cake was the best I've ever had. Overall a great meal and great night out.
Legume is the kind of restaurant where one never worries if they are going to like something. My Wife and I have been coming here for years, at least a 3-4 times a year. We always have the same waiter and order many of the same dishes. The consistency in the quality and taste are impeccable. I highly recommend.
Wonderful, rich, French inspired food. Impeccable serviice; server didn't miss one trick. We never saw the bottoms of our coffee cups, which is saying a lot, as we can really put it away! Wonderful for a date night, or to enjoy with friends and family. Overall a very nice experience!
My wife and I dined here on Saturday night knowing very little about the place. Bottom line, we loved it. The food is delicious. Small menu but enough variety for all. Interesting preparation and fresh. Our server was very friendly but seemed to forget about us a few times although he quickly corrected. Overall the service gave off a relaxed atmosphere without being disinterested. The ambiance is modern, quiet and clean. Our first experience was a big hit. We’ll return.
This was our second time at Legume, the first being in April when we visited Pittsburgh for the first time (we live 3-1/2 hours away). It was even better this time than last, and that time the food was delicious. My husband and I shared a grilled carrot appetizer that was truly remarkable, with hickory nuts and a delicate maple yogurt sauce, and another appetizer of a very good lamb sausage. Our entrees were his, a chicken paprikash, and mine, a tempeh dish with Russian red kale and a light mushroom sauce (with lots of yummy mushrooms) atop a grain the name of which I cannot remember now. This may have been the very best vegetarian dish I've ever eaten. I also tried my husband's paprakash, which was quite tasty! We treated ourselves to a shared dessert of black walnut cake with vanilla ice cream and a light touch of salty caramel sauce, also absolutely delicious, and not at all heavy. Portion sizes were right on; I expected to have leftovers to take back to the hotel, but I cleaned my plate and left feeling full but not stuffed. This was definitely a memorable dining experience.
Our server, Duane, was superb. He was helpful, knowledgable about the dishes on the menu (no small achievement, as menus change often depending on what local ingredients are available), friendly, attentive, but not hovering. Very professional.
As I told my husband, were I on death row, I'd like to have Legume prepare my last meal -- perhaps a repeat of this one. If Duane could serve it, that would be a bonus.
Legume is easily the best place We have eaten in Pittsburgh in the past year. The shared dishes are delightful and entrees all were great — halibut, chicken, lamb pork dishes all week prepared and delicious. Service was friendly and professional. Great place.
