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.

    We shared the Filet Mignon. Taste was excellent, price was steep. No sides included. We ordered Loaded Mashed Potatoes for 2 (smaller version), but there was enough for at least 4 people. We took some home. I had a Brandy Manhattan and my wife had a Brandy Water. Both were excellent.

    Nice place. Good service. My filet, ordered “medium” was overdone. I would call it “medium well” not medium. Disappointed

    Let them know about a special celebration and it was ignored. Our reservation was also ignored because we were walked all over the place to find a table.

    The food and service were outstanding! All of the staff were very friendly and courteous. It was a bit noisy out front but fine in the back. The hostess told us that upfront and then gave us the opportunity just to decide where we want him to sit. Very considerate!

    I believe our waiters name was Dorio and he was amazing . We were there the night prior and he remembered exactly what drinks and items we had ordered off the menu. He was so kind and sincere, which was nice after two long days at Mayo . We will definitely be back at this location and other locations we are able to find

    Our waiter was amazing. Very attentive even though it looked as though he had quite a few tables! The food was superb. We all ordered steaks and they were done to perfection. We were pretty full, but ordered dessert anyway- the key lime pie and cheesecake were to die for. We like to go out to eat and have been to more nice, fancy, expensive, highly rated restaurants than I can count...Pittsburgh Blue is on top of our list. We will definitely be back.

    Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable, made excellent suggestions and was timely but never hurried. The steaks were cooked to expected temps and we enjoyed the family-style sides. Pricey (it’s a steakhouse) but not exorbitant. Will definitely consider again for date nights and special occasions.

    The 6-ounce petite filet was more like 4 ounces, butter flied open for cooking, so it was about less than 1/2 inch thick. Other people at the table ordered the petite filet and they were all small but mine was the only one that was butter flied. If this would not have been a business dinner, I would have sent the steak back. for the money it was very subpar.

    When I made the reservation I put this in the text: Your special requirements Could we get a special booth for my mom's birthday? When we arrived the front desk asked, would you like a booth or table? Then as we were being seated she asked, are you celebrating a special occasion? Did anyone ever look at the reservation special requirements I put in? Then, the server seemed disinterested. The water was good until it was filled the third time and it tasted like cleaning solution from the bottle being washed through a dishwasher (didn’t say anything because we were close to being done). My mom’s petite filet looked like a hockey puck with no garnish on a large plate. She didn’t complain but asked to use my au jus to dip her steak into it to make it palatable. Loaded mashed potatoes were fantastic. Guess we’re spoiled with the Minneapolis locations because they give high quality service and food prep, as well as exceed expectations. For example, a small special dessert would be offered to the birthday person. I wish I could have given this location the same but trying to be constructive rather than complaining or cruel.

    Went with a friend for a birthday dinner. We shared a salad, had petite filets, loaded mashed potatoes and a brownie for dessert. The salad was fresh, loaded with ingredients and quite tasty. The steaks were perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The loaded mashed potatoes were awesome. The brownie was appropriately decadent served with ice cream and caramel sauce. The atmosphere was elegant without being pretentious, with a subdued noise level that allowed for conversation. Our server was enthusiastic, attentive without being intrusive, and very professional.

    Waiter was awesome, personable and knowledgeable! Food unfortunately was just fair. Nothing great. Our 1st time to PB in Rochester. (Visiting Mayo) Maple Grove Pittsburgh Blue’s food is substantially better…for a lesser price on steak entrees. (Ordered the same steak at PB in Maple Grove) Drinks were very good.

    Side prices were ridiculous. They were very large but I was a single visiting. The Port prices were higher than Mannys and Ruth Chris. $24 for a Twenty year old Sandemans. Outrageous. Food was ok. Bisque ok but not worth $16.
