    Food is always very interesting and wonderfully prepared. We have a couple of favorites but there are always new dishes and we always try new things. On our recent visit, we were seated close to the kitchen and I was able to watch the chefs at work. Very interesting! Highly recommend!

    Morcilla is our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh, so it was our choice to celebrate a birthday. We had our usual small plates and decided to share the short rib entree. It was outstanding and more than enough for two. I look forward to doing this again.

    quite possibly the single greatest dining experience of my life last night here at Morcilla. The vibes, tentative service & most of all the food/beverages were just absolutely perfect as well, all down to even the small details. Every dish that we had was just flawless and you could tell the care that went into them. Thank you for a night I’ll never forget & we’ll be back to see you asap. Thank you Morcilla team!

    Morcilla was a decadent experience. We ordered the mushrooms, oxtail, softshell crab, octopus, and salad, and then somehow stuffed in the sorbet. Our favorites were the oxtail and octopus. No need to get both the octopus and the crab together; their sauces are quite similar. The wait staff was incredibly kind!

    This is one of the finest restaurants anywhere in the country. I would know, since I travel constantly and have been to many excellent places to eat. The food is absolutely delicious and interesting. The service is first class. It’s a little dark in there so it’s hard to read the menu. Otherwise it’s a real gastronomical experience.

    This is one of the finest restaurants I've ever visited worldwide. I have traveled to 65 countries and tried many Michelin rated restaurants and Morcilla is among the very best. The food is exquisite, delightful, tasty and presented beautifully. The gambas were extraordinary, the octopus, skirt steak, tartare, beet salad, ribs and skate fish were absolutely wonderful. Each dish had a unique sauce that brought a provacative reaction to the palette. Even the sangria was as good as any I've had anywhere in Spain. Our server, Meghan, was fabulous. Never interrupted our conversations, offered suggestions and was as polite as possible. This was my second time having her as our server and she is superb. It is a superb place for food and company. My only small complaint is that the lighting is quite minimal, making it hard to see the small print on the menu. I have to use the light on my iPhone and reading glasses to be able to clearly see the details of the food. The noise level is a bit high but tolerable. In my opinion, this is one of the three finest restaurants in Pittsburgh. It's quite pricey but well worth the experience.

    The server was very engaging and helped us navigate the excellent wine list. We ended up with a superb bottle of 2011 R. López de Heredia Rioja Reserva. The charcuterie plate was ample and delicious, especially the house made Morcilla sausage. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly rare and served over a delicious puréed sunchoke sauce and topped with a delicious red wine reduction. Pomegranate and rhubarb sorbet ended the enjoyable evening with a refreshing, palate pleasing dessert. Cheers!

    An excellent choice for interesting small plates. Went with a friend and 3 small plates between the two of us was perfect to not over fill us. The challenge was narrowing the options down! We ended up with the grilled octopus, beef tartare, and duck confit. All were delicious!

    If you love meet, you should go here. A great experience. The service was good. The atmosphere is nice; not too loud. The food is the star. As a party of three, we ate the following: Small plates: Salty Pork Bits Charcuteria, Morcilla Montadito, Fried Cauliflower Large plates: Smoked Beef Short Rib Dessert: Churros, Goat Cheese Flan The eponymous Morcilla sausage was wildly delicious. The smoked beef short rib was brilliant. The churros were the best I've had. Nothing was bad. Next time, we want to try the Oxtail Montadito.

    It’s been awhile since we’ve been able to get back here -and full disclosure WE MISS CURE!!- we were not disappointed. Every aspect was first rate: food, drink, and service. The broad depth of the flavor profiles have always been the primary aspect their food , and it still is. Montaditos, Gambas, Beef Cheek, all exemplary. Lynn, behind the bar, always presents well balanced and approachable and unfussy offerings. I loved the rojo Vermut. Can you get less expensive food, sure. But you won’t get anything better.

    I would love to write a short novella about all of the great things we experienced at Morcilla, what a joyful and complete dining experience. The service was outstanding from door to table and back out the door, the food arrived in a lovely well timed process that allowed us to savor every morsel and the only regret I have is that I was visiting Pittsburgh and will not be back often enough to make this a regular stop. Rest assured though, I will return to Morcilla every time I return to Pittsburgh!! Yinz are killin' it. xo Gordon

    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.
