Stacy was our server. Magnificent! Everyone enjoyed their meal. My steak sandwich was good, but hard to eat. Too much bread for the piece of steak. Greens on sandwich kept falling out and were tough to chew. Would order it again open faced with greens under the steak rather than on top. Thanks for asking.

You get what you pay for. High end cost but the food was excellent. Hand cut/hand dipped onion rings were very good. I had a well done petite steak and it was still very tender.

Food is always great at Pittsburgh Blue. I had the BBQ ribs that were an entire rack. This is my favorite destination for my dinner for any occasion. I always suggestion this place for business dinners, and my guests want to go back again. Sara was our server and she is the best!

I will not be going back. All the side were served cold, mushrooms, green beans and two of us had crab legs that took almost 20 minutes to crack tables side (so also cold). I have been here several times with clients and the services was always spot on and the food has been fine. This past visit was just bad all the way around. We were seated at a large round table that was moved into the isle ( so each time a server with their cart or customer walked in the isle they were bumping into our chairs and table) We did ask to be moved and that was taken care of. Not one time did a manger come to our table to see how the evening was going (very disappointing). The hostesses (3!) are non attentive and rude.

Our waiter was very experience and knew how to please. He made some great suggestions and offered us alternatives if we did not care for his suggestions and showed us a few of the steaks right at our table. We had the best steaks, flavor, tenderness and perfectly cooked to our liking. We will definately be going back again to try out other items on the menu.

Had a reservation and still waited 35 minutes
Asked for a booth at time of reservation and was seated next to kitchen at table.
So loud you could not have a conversation.
Food not worth for what you pay, much better options in city.

Food was fantastic as was the service. The only complaint is how noisy it is and how everything is packed so closely together. When I am having a great meal, I would prefer it a bit quieter and not feeling like I am sitting with the table next to us.

Had a reservation and were seated promptly..we felt that once the server found out we we're not interested in pricey alcoholic drinks ,we became less of a priority for him. We never received our dinner rolls. We also felt compelled to finish our steaks right then and there due to the cost, and the fact we we're not once offered a box to take away our left overs..If I'm paying nearly 30$ for some mashed potatoes and asparagus I should have the option to take them home... Atmosphere was above a dull roar..if your looking for a good date night spot this isn't it ..also we were asked upon arrival if we were celebrating anything ..we replied yes ,our anniversary..never once was that ever addressed again..

Everything really was great with the exception of the table next to us. They brought a dice game and were arguing very loudly. After 1 1/2 hours the waiter should have moved them to the bar area. Now I'm not sure if we'll go back but only time will tell.

Very good food. Attentive service. Couldn't quite understand why we were listening to loud 80's music in what would otherwise be a steakhouse atmosphere. I wouldn't mind eating a burger and grabbing a beer to those tunes, but when you're dropping a couple hundred bucks on dinner, music should seem a little more sophisticated. I'm not a snobby guy, just know my atmosphere.

This is my favorite restaurant to visit. Food is always great however the mashed potatoes are never warm. They must prep them and sit until rest of the food is done. I forget every time that the potatoes are usually cold.

Worse New Year’s Eve ever. So much was bad. Steaks poor quality and I mean poor quality Waiter very good. Bread hard steaks bad salad ok Hugh croutons. We finally were able to find our waiter. He agreed with the filet which was not a filet that I have ever had. Burnt edges hidden under the mushrooms stringy to cut. Manager came over. Agreed with our findings on filet and bone in strip as well as our 3 rd guest had prime rib. Not a prime cut of meat but ??? She did comp only the meat. We paid for the sides. Should of comped the entire meal. Mannys wouldn’t of approved of this. Or Parasols dinning company.
Oh yes we waited 25 min. Shown to a back room that just got heat. No one else there we sat on frozen chairs and doors were open as people coming into restaurant and it was -15. Made them reseat us. Really who would want to sit in there.

Love this place. Two bad points this last visit. We were here on New Years Eve. Freezing cold outside and every time the front door opened a blast of cold air came in. People choose to use the door instead of the revolving door and hold it open for others so it made it freezing cold for us and others ugh.
We had the filet American and they cut the cheese too thick and it was not melted on top of our steak. We sent it back for them to melt it but the cheese was still really thick. I still love coming here and will continue. Everything else was wonderful. The scallops appetizer, hash browns and the BLT wedge salad yummy

Our food was great. Service was great. Only slight downfall was that they sat us at a table (when my on-line reservation requested a booth) and I didn't want to be "picky" so I didn't say anything. Then they sat us in an off-shoot room that had maybe a dozen tables, felt small. The atmosphere wasn't as lively in that room...didn't even know they had extra rooms. So, if atmosphere is important to you, ask what seating they have available before they seat you.

This was our first time eating here, and we were celebrating our anniversary. Our entrees were excellent (cedar planked salmon and the Cowboy ribeye steak). Our service was attentive and excellent and friendly. We would gladly return. The only glitch was that we requested a booth but were seated at a table, but this was promptly remedied.
