    This was a fun date night with another couple. The snack and small plate options was the best way to go. We were able to try many things without getting too full. The mussels, oxtail, and anchovies were the best snacks. The. The duck was by far the best small plate, but all of the small plates were delicious.

    Always a great time at Morcilla, the food is amazing with a number of selections to mix and match. It gets busy but doesn't feel crowded, it does get noisy which makes it hard to have a conversation sometimes but that's part of the ambience.

    Great service! Very good food. Noisy. First course dishes were served quickly and together—giving a rushed feeling. Second course dishes were slowed down. Sangria flavor was meh and overly iced.

    Morcilla the best restaurant in Pittsburgh hands down. The menu is always changing and their house made tonic is the best I ever had. Their scallop dish is one is the best things that I have ever eaten and always go back for. It’s always a treat to eat here and the staff is amazing, kind and knowledgeable

    We ordered an assortment of small plates. The food was good, with sophisticated flavors and depth. However, my partner and I didn't consider it outstanding. We also had subpar service from one of the waitstaff, which negatively impacted our overall experience. He didn't check on us for nearly half an hour after serving our pre-dinner drinks (thought he visited the table next to ours, so its not like he was too busy or working in another part of the restaurant). It was odd. Other servers seemed nice though so hopefully he's just an aberration.

    All 4 of us had fantastic meals. The trout was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the “snacks” were fun and delicious. I particularly recommend the skirt steak and octopus. Our server was always available and helpful but never overbearing. Her recommendations were spot on. We will come back for sure!

    We had an exceptional dinner last night per usual. Always start with the oxtail montadito as it may be the BEST BITE in all of Pittsburgh but finally got to enjoy the trout, which I have been eyeing for quite some time. It was absolutely delicious, and I had the rest this morning with a scrambled egg and homemade hash browns. Greta was our server, and we will request her regularly now. She was very personable, knowledgeable and attentive. She was lovely to chat with and just had great energy. My friend and fellow restaurant manager and I could not rave more about the entire experience and cannot wait to go back again soon!

    This is one of my favorite spots in Pittsburgh. The food is consistently delicious and unique, and the service is spot on. A member of my group has severe dairy allergies, and our waitress took the time to mark up our menu with what he could/couldn’t eat and walk us through everything. We’ll be back soon!

    My partner and I had our NYE dinner at Morcilla of which it was our first time dining with them and we had the most amazing experience! From the ambiance, to the staff, to the drinks, to the FOOOD! We were absolutely blown away. Great tapas style restaurant with fresh/well thought out menu items. The kitchen also did a great job brining out our plates based on what we ordered so the meal flowed perfectly, it was clear that it was well thought out. The price point was also great for the amount of food and drinks we had! We will absolutely be back and will be bringing our families to enjoy too! Thank you so much, Morcilla to you and your amazing team!

    The food is a wonderful experience of unique, flavors, unlike any other restaurants I have been too. Foods I didn’t know I could like were so finely seasoned that I loved things I never liked before. The food was really great and the talent it takes to invent flavors like that is something you really can’t put a price on, so even though dinner for two cost enough to feed a family of four for a week it was worth the experience even if I may never justify it again for myself I HIGHLY recommend it for all those who can.

    We went to Morcilla to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the range and diversity of the small plates that were offered. It was so much fun to taste enough but not too much of one food and then switch to a different plate with new tastes. The restaurant space is actually quite small which makes noise control an issue. Overall, we had a great time!
