I love the fresh oyster selection and all the gluten free choices at Off the Hook. Lunch on the patio was fantastic.

Let me just say that I love Off the Hook and it's one of my most favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. Unfortunately our experience last night was less than what I'm used to when I've gone in the past. We got the sampler appetizer, which was excellent as always. The apple cider sangria did not have a great flavor profile-definitely needed more spices. The sea bass on special was cooked to perfection, but the broccolini was absolutely terrible. Truly the worst broccoli I've ever had at a restaurant. It was roasted and burnt to the point where there was literally zero moisture left. My husband got the chocolate latte for dessert, which was divine as always. We also got the pumpkin latte and butter pecan cheesecake, which were both meh flavor wise. The pumpkin latte must've had an egg shell in it because my mom kept biting down into something very hard and gritty. Not sure if their normal chefs weren't there, or if they're having staffing issues like everyone else in the country, but our meal was overall more subpar than what I'm used to at OTH, unfortunately. We'll be back but probably not for a while.

Had a birthday celebration. Started with onion soup (her) and mussels special (me). Waitress warned me there was a little heat in the curried squash sauce. There was, but it was part of the appeal of the dish. Thanks for the warning. Two dozen mussels! I had halibut special, she had scallops hoezel style. Both were way beyond good. Ordered grilled asparagus as side. More than enough for two. Nice by-the-glass wines available. Desserts were huge so a lot came home.

The ease of obtaining a reservation was great, we were greated at the door by a very pleasant person and were guided directly to our table. Our Waitress was very informative and we never had to wait to look for her, she was available if we needed her. The food was outstanding and we will certainly be back.

We returned to off the Hook once again to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The ambience was comfortable without being overly noisy. And the food was, as always, excellent. We had the Ichiban appetizer with crabcake and char grilled shrimp. It was complemented nicely by a 2016 Napa Valley BV wine. The tuna, salmon and swordfish were done to a perfect medium rare. My wife had the salmon Veracruz and I had the sea scallops with jumbo lump crab on top. For dessert, we shared the white chocolate mousse, which was provided gratis as an anniversary gift. We could not have been happier with our experience and would definitely recommend this to friends.

Everyone knows how great the food is at Off the Hook What made our evening so pleasurable was our waiter, Jamie He said he was new there. He’s great- so pleasant, happy to steer us to just the right vodka for our French Martinis, answered all our questions about the menu and the great looking dishes those around us had ordered He even made us a fresh pot of coffee to go with our desserts. Great hire OTH

Ordered scallops and halibut and both were terrific. Side dishes and salads were huge so it would have been better to order one each and split with two people. Servers might want to mention this.

Our experience with wonderful! When we arrived we were greeted and seated within 5 minutes. Upon arriving at the table, I had a gluten-free menu waiting in front of me as I have gluten allergies. My gluten-free selection was outstanding and so was the quality and taste of the food. Can't wait to go back!
