Thoughtfully prepared food drawing inspiration from Braddock, its people, its history and its perseverance. The cuisine will best represent the eclectic style which has become a trademark of Chef Kevin Sousa.

We were looking forward to our dinner at Superior Motors. While the ambiance and service were satisfactory, the food was not. We were greatly disappointed. The dishes from each category didn’t mesh well. We could sense the good intentions behind each dish but the execution leaves much room for improvement.

The food was good but not great. The service was great. What is really deficient is the wine. The number of wines from which to select is inadequate both as regards by the glass offerings and full bottles. Complementing the poor selection is outrageous pricing(3 to 5 times retail) coupled with short pours. My four star rating is too generous but three seems to harsh. It is a B- restaurant on food and a C+ overall primarily because of the beverage issue

It's a long drive for us. One of their heaters was broken but the staff really made the best of it. Food was excellent. Desserts were a little too outside the box for us but great meal overall.

I like the restaurant ambience and the service is wonderful. However, I've been disappointed with the food. Some of the food combinations and innovations don't work. For example, we had a rice cake side dish that was a mishmash, with gluey rice cylinders and smothered in mildly hot sauce.

Really special place. We just celebrated my husband's birthday there.

When you first read-over the menu, you wonder whether you will like a particular dish, then this really enthusiastic server comes along who tells you everything you need to try, and she is absolutely "spot on."

The food, the service - everything about the place was wonderful. We are telling everyone we know. Superior Motors is an experience that you need to do - over and over!

Service was terrible. Our server made up whatever he didn’t know about both the wine and the food. When our entree was to thought to cut or eat because it was full of connective tissue his response was that grass fed beef is generally tough and that our beef was normal. After we asked for a different dish he basically disappeared until it was time for the check. Not planning on returning.

Love the food love the restaurant , server could have been more attentive, those who brought our food were very knowledgeable of the menu, our server was lacking in attention, had to keep flagging him down for wine. I would suggests not placing 8 people on a 6 top its tight especially in the bar room. I would still and have recommend that people go there, just need some tweaks .

Hands-down this is the Best restaurant and food experience in Pittsburgh metro area. This was my third visit and we were treated with a kitchen tour and chance to meet the owner/chef in person. I give this establishment my highest recommendation.

Superior Motors NEVER fails to exceed our expectations. I/we have never encountered so many complex flavors in each and every bite of every dish we have enjoyed. Always a pleasant evening there and Chef Kevin Sousa is to be congratulated for his outstanding achievement.
The entire staff at Superior Motors is.....well....."Superior". Always fun - Always friendly - Always ready to answer any menu query with a smile and a great story. They truly know their stuff and that delightfully raises them above all other staff anywhere in the region.
Our favorite place to dine - anytime.

Dinner last week was an exxcelent dining experience. Staff is cheerful and knowledgable on the menu. I had 3 fish courses that were devine. The side dish of smoked potatoes is the best potato dish I've ever eaten. I'm not much of a wine drinker and I thoroughly enjoyed the selection suggested frim General Manager Chris. Superior Motors has prepared the best food I've ever consumed.

Service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about the food, slightly less so about the wine. Food was also very good, the octopus dish could have used more salt, but otherwise we enjoyed everything. Drinks were a good, but somewhat overpriced. Would definitely go back.

We love that it's attached to a theatre that will host great shows and really wanted to love the restaurant, but just couldn't. The atmosphere is wonderful.....great looking, modern, comfortable. The food is what was so disappointing. The portions are small for the price which I expect when the food is exceptional but this food just isn't even close, so we were left after paying a hefty bill with unsatisfied taste buds and hungry stomachs. Thank goodness the play was so entertaining!!!! As a side note, the waitress is a bit over zealous. I felt a bit like she was working too hard for tips :( but she was trying hard.
