    Absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I had the elk tenderloin and the filet. Both were outstanding. The desserts were also delicious, made by a local artisan. The atmosphere is trendy and romantic with a beautiful glass wall of wine barrels. The chef came out to check on us a few times which was a nice touch. Live violin music played while we ate. It was a high quality 5 star dining experience worth the drive to Washington, PA.

    First time here, enjoyed the experience. Salads were good and the lamb, sea bass and filet entrees were done just right, really nice to get away from the sodium infusion of many restaurants today. Thumbs up for the peanut butter dessert, too! We'll be back.

    The service was good but not where it should be for a 5 star restaurant. She was great, don’t get me wrong, but you expect a certain level with these prices.

    Started with the Mary Ann (loved it) & mushroom bisque, followed by small plates - poutine & brussel sprouts. Finished with peanut butter pie & carrot cake. Everything was perfect... including the swanky supper club vibe, music, soft lighting, black & glass, barrels, & large bar. It is a distillery & winery. A must visit!

    When you drive up to the restaurant, it looks a little deceiving. My husband walked in first just to make sure it was open. However when we walked inside, we were totally blown away! The ambience and the service were top of the line, and the food was absolutely amazing!! The chef came out personally to see if we enjoyed our meal and chat with us for a bit. We are definitely making this our go-to date night spot!

    Food was outstanding! My only suggestions would be do not seat people near the kitchen. We sat right outside the kitchen and was not ideal. There were plenty of open seats not near the kitchen. Service was very very slow. We will be back but hope the service improves. Thankyou!

    The new dishes are outstanding - we had Poutine, Brussels, and the charcuterie for apps - the winter salad and the mushroom soup for starters AND sea bass, filet and the pasta for dinner and all were so delicious - oh and the Maryann is back on the cocktail menu! Heather was an excellent service and the new bartender made me the best espresso martini I have ever had - full bodied and creamy on top. I wish I took a picture of it.

    Went for New Years Eve dinner and celebration. Wasn’t aware it was a prix fixed menu until we sat down and got the menus from the hostess. This should have been posted on the Open Table website and included the price. Although the food was good it was pricey. The Lab also needs to update their website. Mindy and the staff were wonderful. Thanks.

    Jake and Heather delivered an exceptional experience from start to finish. Heather was at the table at the right times and Jake stopped by for each course to check up on us. The food was marvelous. I was hesitant to try the risotto and it was creamy with just the right amount of bite.

    Server was wonderful - very efficient and kind. Went for a 6:30 PM reservation and ended up being advised about a number of "we may have run out of that". The appetizer option of rolls - for $8 is 4 tiny rolls and they had just one order left. The wine we ordered was a potential to be out of, as was the filet. Everything is ala carte so with shareable sides the bill will climb. Portions are respectful and on the smaller side.

    This was our first time visiting the Lab. The food was spot on and delicious. The service was impeccable, and our server consistently visited to ensure our dining experience was enjoyable. The General Manager stopped by to meet us and ensure we were enjoying our dinner. I cannot recommend the Lab more highly. We will be back in the near future.

    The food was delicious. My New York Strip Steak was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. The wait staff were attentive but the temperature in the restaurant was uncomfortably cold . We had to wear our coats during dinner. I would love to eat here again when the weather is warmer.

    Overall very disappointing for the prices. Filet was $71 and extremely salty. Calamari was overall threaded and actually came out before our drinks were even served. it is in an old skating rink and just overly odd. So many great restaurants in Pittsburgh that are priced this way (or lower).

    Don't let the exterior fool you… inside is moody, sophisticated, and elegantly comfortable. After our delightful 1st visit a few weeks ago, we decided to celebrate our anniversary there - and we were not disappointed. Proper service is hard to find these days, but not at The Lab. Cody at the bar is very knowledgeable and incredibly attentive. Chef's new menu items are wonderful - great flavor combinations, textures, and skillful  preparations. The light background music from the local musician was an added bonus. Can't wait to introduce our friends to this hidden gem!
