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.

Great bar atmosphere & bar menu. Had a cocktail & appetizer. Friendly bartender. Moved to dining area for dinner. Classy, quiet & comfortable. Excellent server. Probably the best filet mignon I have had.

First time at Pittsburgh Blue - highly recommend, appetizers were on point - had Calamari and Maple Glazed bacon. We all ordered steaks - all were prepared perfectly and were some of the best steaks we've had in Rochester. Sides were asparagus and loaded mash potatoes.

It just was not good. The wedge salad lettuce was brown. I ordered shrimp stuffed with crab and it was cold and fishy tasting. Not sweet like crabmeat is. I only ate half just to be polite.

I took my Family of 5 to Pittsburgh Blues on Saturday night. My Sons both ordered Fillet Mignon which were very good. My Wife ordered the Crab stuffed shrimp which was good. My Mother and I both ordered the Queens Cut Prime Rib which was unfortunately very tough and tasteless. I have been in the restaurant business for 25 years, so I write this not with the hope that I am given a discount, but rather the hope that you are aware. With the prices you charge, patrons should be walking away with a true dining experience feeling, rather than feeling they had been taken advantage of. While the majority of the Food was good, but it wasn't worth the $300+ bill that I received.
Thanks

Great place. The word around Rochester there expensive but my wife and I really wanted go and try it so we went for our Valentines Date and we feel in love with the place. And,it’s not expensive. Our server was really nice and took the time to explain the entire Pittsburgh Blue experience. They have a great Sunday special that my wife had and she loved it. I picked a steak it was cooked perfectly and tasted excellent. We will go back and we where only going to try it once. So if your on the fence about going pick a date night and give it a try you’ll be back.

I thought the prime rib was excellent but have a problem with the potato and salad not being part of the meal and not $10 each extra. That in itself will probably keep us from returning.

I could cook a steak better at home. Why it's better than Steak places in Rochester, it's defiantly not worth the cost. Service was very good.

Paid for a ‘special’ that was just a reworded item off the menu and then given the run around when I asked on it. Steak wasn’t that special... save your money and find a better place, the food at outback is better

The service: amazing!
The drinks: oh so good!
The atmosphere: a little dim in the dining area, but nothing bad. Didn’t have to use flash for our date night photo or squint to read menus.
The food: fantastic! The steak was the most tender and the greens were wonderfully baked. Be aware, most things are served a la carte, so sides must be ordered separate. Makes everything a little pricey. The only negative I can say about the experience is that the food was too salty. If only one thing had been salty and the others not, it would have been nicely balanced, but the meat was salty, the bread was salty, and the veggies were salty. Ask for things with no or less salt, I guess.
Overall: amazing! But maybe only a once-a-year or every-two-year kind of meal. ($$$$)

Food was amazing and was super quick! Great service, highly recommend the wait staff. One of our appetizers accidentally fell on the table and the staff made us another one. Great date night restaurant!

A 6 oz filet on some mashed potatoes with an iceberg lettuce salad and creme brûlée dessert was $45. Add a cocktail and tip and you hit $75. The food was good, not great, but pricey even for a steakhouse. Were it not for a gift card I would not have gone there.

The price paid for the quality of the meal was as good. The server was not as experienced. An example of that was when she started to ask if we need to box anything when my kids were still eating.

My sea bass entree was excellent, but my wife's filet was tough/chewy. It's disappointing when you can get better filet from HyVee. For $40, we expected better. Our server was great (Ryan?) - very friendly and he kept our wine glasses filled.

We werent impressed for the price. My filet was done med rather than MR so dry. Got the petite filet, but with the upcharge for what was stated for the 8oz filet , it ended up being the same price. There was cheese on everything. The mushroom side was good. The mac n ch was dry, cresmed spinach was plain and watery, hash browns were still tough. I noted it was my bday, but not acknowledgment. Capital Grille and other nice steak houses will put it in the menu, do dessert and verbalize it. I asked for a paper napkin to put my gum in it to drink my martini and by the time i got it, it was 20 or so minutes later.

All in all, this is a certain choice again when we’re in the area. Because of the excessive drink prices, though, we will curtail our beverages there.

The French onion soup for bland onions were not cooked low and slow enough leaving broth bland but the cheese on top was great. Steak for superb and Manhattan was incredible. Lobster thermador could have use larger fresh shrimp instead of small salad shrimp. Bread service on point and server was excellent. Prices are high but in line with top steak houses prices. Unfortunately some items fell short of top steak house quality so I was left feeling like I overpaid.

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!
