Hungarian
Huszar is a charming, family-owned restaurant and tavern featuring homemade Hungarian Old-World Cuisine, specialty craft beer selections, exclusive wine imports, and a full bar.

"With Huszár, we reach back to our roots. My mom would often tell stories of her family life in Hungary, and my dad would often reflect upon his military service there that he was so proud of. However, it was the stories of my grandfather being a proud Huszár, handpicked to serve as an elite soldier on horseback, that I draw my inspiration from. Their stories instilled me with a deep pride in my heritage."

The delightful husband/wife owners make and serve wonderful, authentic Hungarian food. A neighborhood gem. Our first time there was for a special birthday, but it would be a good choice even for everyday dining.

Huszar offers a unusual menu of Hungarian cuisine. Pittsburgh is full of people of east European descent but doesn’t have many places that offer this kind of food! Everything is of great quality and delicious!

With all of the pitfalls of The pandemic, one of the pluses was meeting and talking to the owner, Judy. She can tell you the history of her families bar and restaurant as well as the history of the dishes.

If you want to try something new, different and delicious, give them a try!

Third or fourth time here. The food is awesome! This is a small corner bar. The main reason to come here is the delicious food. So far we have ordered stuffed pork chop, pork loin, mushroom paprikash, lečso steak - everything is amazing! The sides are delicious too. Roasted potato, sweet sauerkraut, the little dumplings, side salads, potato pancakes. I want to go again this week!

A fun place with the surprise of some great Hungarian style musicians serenading us.. but pretty small and limited seating. With reservations, we were offered the bar or a high top table. We took the table! Very busy while we were there on a Friday night. While the music was great, it made conversation impossible until they took a break. The food was good! Not a place for light eating since everything has meat, sauce with cream, or cheese!

A bit of Pittsburgh corner bar, a bit of backstreet Budapest cafe. A little funky and good fun. The other night was our third visit and they had a trio--violin, standup bas, and cimbalom (!!!). It's not haute cuisine a la a Michelin restaurant but authentic enough to be worth the trip. Don't let the location or outside appearance bother you.

Great atmosphere, delicious food, and terrific band. The trio of upright bass, dulcimer, and violin gave a nice ambiance without being overpowering. We loved the food and can’t waiting to go back to try other things on the menu!

The evening we dined at Huszar we wonderful. The service was excellent, helpful and friendly. The Hungarian wine and beer a nice accompaniment to the dinner. Totally recommend trying them.

Most of the feature menu items are pork and they were out of pork at 7 on a Saturday night. The Hungarian tasting platter consists of processed cheese, Aldi-grade sausage slices and Wonder Bread. Service was very friendly but slow and disorganized. The music was great, though.

What might seem like an unassuming little place ended up being a wonderful experience with some of the best homestyle comfort food I’ve had in a long time. Our group happened to come on a night when there was some great live entertainment to go with the incredible food and the service was fast and friendly.

The Hungarian cuisine was authentic, made from recipes from a master chef. The Langos (fried bread) appetizer was especially good, the Goulash satisfying, and chicken paprikas was delicious! Topping it off with the traditional Gundel Palacsinta dessert crepe capped a memorable meal. Music by the Budapest originated Royal Trio made us feel that we were in a cafe by the Danube! A friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere makes Huszar a unique dining experience- a hidden gem in Pittsburgh

The music was great and the staff super friendly! The food missed the mark! I was expecting more traditional authentic Hungarian food! The food lacked rich Hungarian flavor the Goulash soup was more like vegetables soup with some beef in it, however the small dumplings in the soup was tasty were tasty!

My son wanted to try Hungarian, so we got lucky with this gem! A true Pittsburgh restaurant that probably sees 99% locals, and we had never noticed before.... the server was gracious and explained Hungarian pronunciations, made recommendations, portions were more than generous, and we enjoyed some authentic Hungarian cuisine.
