American | Downtown, Pittsburgh

The restaurant was lovely--great atmosphere and ambiance. The cocktail menu was pretty limited, but a decent wine list made up for it. The food was definitely tasty--but some dishes were not properly cooked/cooked to order. Our guest had to send her steak back because it was not medium, but more rare to medium rare, and my lamb chops were each done to a different level. One perfectly charred and super tasty, one under and one medium. So just ok. Rosemary potatoes didn't really taste flavorful and the carrots and peas were underdone. I'd give it another shot... More

Italian | Highland Park, Pittsburgh

Overall it was good. Our server was very nice but not as experienced as others in the restaurant. She may need a bit more training. For example she had to read the specials versus knowing them like the other server in the dining room did. When you are at a fine dining restaurant, you expect the servers to know the menu. The food was delicious! More

The hostess was very pleasant and our waiter was very good, giving knowledgeable and helpful suggestions. As per usual with me, I ordered 2 starters rather than a starter and a main. Both were excellent. It was overall a very pleasant experience. More

Japanese | Shadyside, Pittsburgh

A group of four of us had a wonderful meal--pretty much sharing everything. We sampled from the Umi specialties, the Nigiri sushi, and the maki and liked everything we tried. The yellowtail with yuzu and jalapenos and black cod with miso were especially good, but so was everything else (e.g. shrimp gyoza, veggie tempura, hamachi sushi, spicy tuna roll, and more). We even finished with the chocolate maki, which was excellent. Our server was attentive and fun. Perfect. More
