Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us pick out food and wine. If you are looking to get introduced to Spanish wines and sherries this is the place. The atmosphere at Morcilla is beautiful and warm. We will definitely be back!

Very good and well presented dishes. The menu lacked popular tapas items like patatas bravas and croquette, which was disappointing. Also, a bit overpriced.

Very nice dinner out. Context ... we're 50+ with lighter appetites ... all the plates are sharable, and make your reservations with that in mind from the get-go. Snacks and small plates will split for one serving each. We shared three snacks and two small plates, and were plenty full. The GAMBAS EN ESCABECHE was especially good. The BEEF TARTARE needed more beef. We did not order a large plate ... FWIW, we were told the chicken or steak take about 45 minutes to prepare. The snacks and small plates came out in 5 - 10 minutes. If you like sherry, try the Acha Blanca Vermouth. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. For the two of us it was $120 out the door with four drinks + tip.

There’s a reason this is one of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is outstanding. Truly some of the best I’ve had anywhere in the world. The service is also excellent. Wine list is I tweeting and always has something I must try. They never let me down. Highly recommended!

The restaurant's food is fantastic, spanning a wide array of different flavor profiles. The ribs are very good, though beware they are somewhat sweet if that's off-putting to you. The oxtail, charcuterie, asparagus, shrimp, and paella were highlights.

Pros:
- Incredible diversity of flavors for many palettes
- High quality ingredients
- Fantastic ambience
- Amazing food!

Cons:
- Can be pricey
- For some dishes, the flavors may not agree with personal taste (could be true anywhere though)
- Paella was slightly on the salty side

Great to have Morrill a back
Menu is very similar to before and produced well
Space is a bit more limited with office and charcuterie nspace subtracting from table space
So may be even harder to get a reservation

As a food professional, I’ll say that Morcilla is easily in my top 3 Pittsburgh restaurants. We had a 9pm reservation and we were sat immediately. The tables were spaced appropriately for the present time and visible safety protocols were in place. Our server was incredibly attentive without being annoying. We ordered a bunch of small plates that they spaced out very well. Each dish was incredible! Make a reservation it’s well worth it.

We ordered a table full of snacks and light plates, and each one was delicious paired with a nice rose!
We can't wait to come back, and we're going to make it a regular.

The drinks are fun and lovely! The food is so so delicious! My favorites were the gambas and the baby back ribs, but everyone else kept raving about the beef tartare. And of course the meats and cheeses are fantastic!! Perfect way to eat-small plates, ordered as needed.

The food was incredible. Clearly this is the closest pgh has to a Michelin star restaurant. I am anti duck but that duck confit was dream worthy. Im glad my husband ordered it. There wasn't a singular dish i didnt like.
