Great service and food. Welcome drink unexpected but very welcomed. Some little things make a big difference. Burrata and asparagus was so good.

This was our second visit to the restaurant. We left before dessert because it was obscenely loud. The food and service were good and we will not return.

We liked the welcome bubbles...nice touch. We had a pretzel and some devilled eggs that were both delicious. There were 6 of us who had steak, pasta, and soft shell crabs; all were very flavorful. The hostess and our server were so friendly and attentive.

Love the food, hate the noise level. They really must do something to dampen the noise. Shouting across the table is not my idea of an excellent meal.

We had a great experience at Siempre Algo. All of the staff we interacted with were pleasant. They also went out of their way to inquire about food allergies and make sure the food we ordered did not contain any of the allegens. (The food was also perfectly prepared and delicious!)

Siempre Algo exceeded our expectations. We wanted to try a new place, and the menu looked good if not necessarily distinct from other "New American" menus around town. That may be true, but it was in execution and service that Siempre Algo distinguished itself. Our server (Kristen?) was top-notch--hitting just the right balance of attentive, friendly, and funny without being intrusive. From the start of the dinner when she brought out our complimentary bubbly plus a nonalcoholic alternative for our non-drinking friend, we never lacked for beverages, and never found ourselves looking around for her when we were ready to order another round, the next course, etc. The space was open with nice distance between the tables and a good view of the open kitchen. And the food delivered...course after course was generally portioned and full of flavor. It was all good, but standouts included the pretzels + pate, crab dip, asparagus (a knockout), sweetbreads, lentil salad, and monkfish. When the pretzels ran out with plenty of pate left, Kristen brought us multiple rounds of crostini until the pate was finished. The duck was the only thing that didn't quite measure up--cooked perfectly, but the preparation was a bit one-note and lacked the popping flavors and contrasting textures that the other dishes offered. One of our best dining experiences in many months!

Although I didn’t have an entree, we ordered multiple 1st and 2nd courses. The standouts for me were the cerviche, tartare and the blue crab dip. Loved the staff and the owner. Highly recommended. Cant wait to go back.

Excellent newcomer to Pittsburgh. Bistro atmosphere. A welcoming 2 oz. glass of bubbly is complimentary. Eclectic, well-executed menu, including devilled eggs with foie gras, sweetbreads, monkfish...things not frequently found on local menus. Decent wine list. Service was attentive. Music was NOT deafening. (Thank you, thank you) Good value. We’ll return soon.

Food didn't seem as excellent as previous visits. Scallops over salted. Sweetbreads not as succulent. Cocktail list not as exciting. Scallops quenelles listed on line menu but not available on paper menu for 2nd time. We will return to try the summer menu.

Really nice dinner on the north side. Good service and a good vibe. Cool starter of homemade pretzels with Dijon mustard. Sweetbreads as a small plate were wonderful. Few place serve sweetbreads as there's a ton of prep but these guys do it well. Monkfish with potato pancake and squash. Duck with creamy faro and asparagus was really well prepared. Super chocolate mousse. Why can't more spots do this quality of food and service at a reasonable price point?

Superb. The meals were sumptuous but not decadent and crafted to perfection. The beef cheeks melt in your mouth and the potato dish accompanying was unlike anything I'd enjoyed before. The wait staff was courteous, kind and accommodating. From start to finish, a top-end dining experience and at very reasonable prices. I cannot wait to return.
