The food was good. The server was excellent. A little noisy, but we had a very nice evening.

The food was fantastic! We had a reservation and were seated right away, but the wait for our server and the food was a little on the long side. Still, the aged ribeye was one of the best steaks I've ever had.

Way to expensive for the food served. Way better steaks at Texas road house or Mavricks for half the price and sides come with it. We loved our server, and all the staff were great, just couldn't justify the cost for the food, just wasn't worth it!!! Honestly my husband cook steak better on the grill.

My family has dined here many times and have always had great service and food. We dined here this past Saturday for my mother's birthday and had a horrible experience. We were seated quickly but sat over 10 minutes before our server appeared to tell us she was putting in an order and would be back. She was rarely seen throughout our evening. Two at our table order the same cut of prime rib and when they arrived, the cuts were very different sizes and were both very full of fat. The other two entrees served were good. We have never felt so invisible while dining before. Bad bad service.

Great food, but I specifically called ahead of time to see if they would put a candle in the cake (for a birthday), otherwise I'd bring one. They said they would, but failed to do so; I called our server out. He didn't bring one until 5 minutes after we received the cake and we had eaten 50% of it. There was no mention by the server that he was getting one, otherwise we'd have waited to start eating the cake.

The meal just did not match the expectations generated by the prices. Manny's prices but not Manny's quality meat and preparation. And the "large" sides were not enough for four people to share. We are spoiled by downtown steakhouses! Service was pleasant, except that we were never asked if our steaks were overcooked, which they were. Probably because they are thinner cuts that are hard to prepare correctly. Not a horrible meal by any means. Also they need to expand their gluten-free ability. GF steak and seafood meant "serve what you order without the sauces", not "prepare the sauces with GF ingredients".

Has really slipped. Food was mediocre and vastly over-priced. Survives on well-heeled western suburbanites who put hipness over quality. So many, many options out there.

We celebrate my husband's birthday at Pittsburg Blue every year, and now our youngest son is picking the same place for HIS birthday. The staff knows how to make birthday boys or girls feel special without embarrassment. Everyone can find something--even our daughter, who eats nothing from the meat, fish, or poultry category except chicken.

We went to PBlu to celebrate a going away with friends. There has been several occasions where our food wait and quality has been missed on a couple of orders.

The wine selections by server were very good.

The ambience and booth seating were a plus for the evening

We ordered the crab legs for dinner and it all went down hill from there. The restaurant prefers to serve the crab legs cut and removed table side. Well, they should rethink this. The kitchen helper, not our server performed this. He had on basic clear gloves to handle the spiny legs. He proceeded to attack these legs with scissors cutting through the tough pink side while shards of shell flew everywhere, including into the crab meat that we were supposed to eat. As he was doing this, I thought I spotted blood oozing on his left thumb. He apparently noticed it too and excused himself to "retrieve a sharper pair of scissors". While he was away, I asked my son who was dining with me if he saw the blood and he did as well. I stopped the closest server to have them send our server immediately. The helper returned just as the server showed up. I told the server that we spotted blood on the helper's thumb. She turned to the server and asked him "do you have blood on your thumb" and he replied "no". So I asked him if he has a bandaid on his thumb and he replied "yes". I then proceeded to ask the helper if he just put that bandaid on because he punctured his thumb preparing our crab and he said "yes". Holy crap dude, you bled into our food and you were going to let us eat it? are you out of your freakin mind?? The manager Angie came over with a fresh, blood free, serving of crab legs. She did not say anything about what happened until I asked her if she was told about the blood contamination. Angie came across extremely unqualified to handle such situation. Angie only expressed surprise, not taking any responsibility for the action of her employee. Angie, along with her kitchen helper, apparently do not understand the health concerns of potential life threatening blood contamination and should not be allowed to work in the food service industry. I would highly discourage anyone from eating at this restaurant until there has been a reform to their food handling practices.
