    You can't go wrong with the Bartender's Choice! They are artists. Food was excellent as well and we tried several small plates. Yum eggplant!

    Good neighborhood spot. On the pricey side for cocktails but quality cocktails. Tends to be a bit uptight about reservations even when there is ample space so be sure to make a reservation.

    We always love The Forge! The atmosphere is beautiful. It’s so nice to sit in a lounge, rather than a traditional restaurant. The food and the cocktails are delicious! We had the whipped ricotta for the first time and it was so delicious. I’ve had whipped ricotta before but this was so different and flavorful. The feta feta bang bang pizza is always a favorite of ours. The service is excellent in spite of it always being busy. The staff is hustling but still friendly. It has a cozy and family feel to it. I highly recommend The Forge.

    We were looking for a quiet, light meal and that exactly what we got. The food was delicious and the ambiance was amazing. We opted for a bottle of wine rather than challenge the bartender to make one of her delicious looking cocktails. We will definitely be back….

    Great options for vegans. Cocktails are fabulous. I like the quiet comfortable atmosphere. Not a loud bar-like feel but more sophisticated elegance.

    Have gone multiple times and have never been disappointed. Cocktails are outstanding - some of the best in Pittsburgh. Small plates and wood-fired flatbreads/pizzas are fresh and delicious. Vibe is very relaxed and intimate. Love the couch seating.
