    We love tapas and trying different foods. Morcilla did not disappoint. The octopus was the best we ever had, the artichoke and oxtail were amazing. Not as crazy about the scallops but did not ruin our opinion of the restaurant. As long as they continue to mix up their menu we will return. Thank you to our server, Lynn, for the great recommendations and his kindness!

    In 2016, Bon Appetit named Morcilla one of the 10 best new restaurants in America. In 2022, one can agree that accolade was well deserved and Morcilla remains one of the best restaurants in the country. Consistently excellent, every dish hits the mark. Every time we come to Pittsburgh, Morcilla is on our “must do” list. Ordering a nice mix of snacks and small plates will transport you to Spain and make for the perfect evening.

    Sat at the bar. The host and bartender was super welcoming! The bartender (I forget his name) was so helpful with finding the perfect glass of wine for my dining experience. I got the beef tartar (10/10) and the mushroom (8/10 little on the smokey side for me. Couldnt put my finger on it but just something was slightly off). Will be back again.

    Great variety of dishes. We split about 9 snacks and small plates between 3 of us, with two loaves of the delicious bread to mop up the amazing sauces. Highly recommend!

    The trout was exceptional! We also got a crunchy and delicious order of warm bread, the octopus small plate and the soft shell crab small plate. The trout was really big so we took some home to leave room for the churros. The only small suggestion is to make the red wine slightly cooler than room temperature— it felt too warm. Everything else was perfect.

    I've traveled to Spain on several occasions and have always loved their style of serving food Tapas Style (small portions). Morchella has brought that culture to Pittsburgh. Having a dish of 400-day-aged Ham with Marcona almonds on one plate, and a Roasted Cabbage preserved lemon-lobster beurre fondue, trout roe, and dill on another. Followed by an order of Crispy Soft Shell Crab with ramp remoulade, and lemon. The taste range of these dishes is enormous. Each one a jewel! I can't rate my favorite restaurants by number but I have several of them that I consider #1 when I'm eating there. Morchella is on that list.

    Morcilla was our first choice for a restaurant at which to entertain a collage friend from New York. We felt it is one of the few places in Pittsburgh where we could show him that the Pittsburgh food scene could match what he can get in New York. We were not disappointed. He was impressed with the quality and creativity of the food, the attentive service and the imaginative cocktails. Morcilla, with out a doubt, is our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh.

    Amazing family dinner. Our first meal dining in in 3 years and totally worth it. Kids are ruined for “regular” restaurants now! Everyone loved something different, but highlights included octopus, artichokes, oxtail, salamis, and ham. Service was competent and pleasant, but not exceptional.

    Picked a number of dishes of the small plates menus to share. Everything was delicious. Very unique flavors, and the drinks were the best food-pairing cocktails I’d ever had. They managed to bring out certain notes in the cocktails that matched the flavor in the food effortlessly.

    This is a must! What a wild experience. The trout was incredible as well as the gem salad. The woodwork is incredible. Such interesting interior design. The layout was also very good. I think the gem salad was probably the wildest and most exciting salad I’ve had. Also, the sorbet was notable. If you’re used to eating something that’s like pop music, this is like eating a symphony.

    Creative Spanish cuisine. My dad is Spanish and lives in Spain so we know authentic Spanish food. Morcilla’s plates are modern twists on classics. Memorable: asparagus, setas, pescado crudo (flake?) and rhubarb sorbet, which was spectacular. Charcuterie plate of 4 cured meats was only disappointment. Expensive and worth it
