Steakhouse
Hand-cut, perfectly aged Midwestern beef, trimmed to our specifications and cooked to yours. Deep booths and a deeper wine list. A bar that makes everything better. And the kind of service everyone deserves but hardly ever receives.
Welcome to Pittsburgh Blue. You’re about to eat very, very well.

Our experience was a great one. The food was excellent
(Lots of great sides, ie buffalo Brussels sprouts and loaded mashed potatoes. The service was attentive but not annoying, and the atmosphere was understated elegance.
We will certainly go back!

Food was excellent--very tasty and well worth the prices.
Our host was friendly and very attentive. He did not rush the pace of the meal.
Lighting was poor, so it made it hard to read the menus.

We had an amazing date. Sirloin was cooked perfectly and the taste was amazing. The loaded potatoes were great and portion was huge. Husbands prime rib was a very generous portion but he wasn't crazy about it. He thought it was a little tough.

Oh my God, everything was amazing! A great place for someone who loves great food and wants to leave full. It costs a lot, but you get what you pay for here. I’m sold on Pittsburgh Blue.

Wonderful steak house... huge portions and side. Not cheap but good value for the amount and quality. If you love beef this is as good as it gets.

I've given it 2 rounds and both times have left me disappointed. The service is amazing and a great atmosphere. It's the food that is sub par. I'm all for paying top dollar for a meal that leaves you breathless. Unfortunately the food isn't any better than a cheap grill. This time I had the seafood salad and it was on iceberg lettuce with 3 small shrimp and about 2 ounces of crab meat. For 21.00. Last time we had the hashbrowns that were basically raw sans the outer layer. Hoping the food improves as I would love to eat here more. Again I love the service and the ambiance.

Great first experience at this restaurant! We had a fantastic waiter who gave us solid recommendations and wine/cocktail pairings. He gave us time to explore the menu and take our time ordering but was never far away for a question or anything else we needed. The glazed bacon appetizer and calamari were delicious. Our group all had steaks which were phenomenal. The hashbrown sides were huge but worked well to take leftovers home and eat for breakfast the next morning. All in all a wonderful dining experience - definitely returning soon!

The service was wonderful and we enjoyed the atmosphere. My husband’s steak was overdone but he didn’t send it back - so that was on him. Overall, we really had a great dinner.

It was very good. Pricey for 2 people since the sides feed 4-6 people. They said 2-4 but at least with the lobster cheddar hash browns - easily 4. I would recommend it. Just be prepared for an expensive night out!

Very disappointed with the food. We ordered the porter house for 2, requesting medium rare. One side was as rare as it comes, the other was so well done we could hardly chew it. The flavor of our sides was sub par. We were really excited for high quality, unfortunately we didn't get that.

My wife and I were celebrating her birthday. We had been intrigued by the look of Pittsburgh Blue from the outside and were pleased with our experience. Very nice ambiance and atmosphere. The service was great. The food was delicious. There are some pricey items on the menu but there are also moderately priced items as well. We do plan to return again.
