    Early on a Sunday, before the rush so nice quiet meal. Service was excellent. The staff really knows the menu, is attentive and timely and very friendly. The food and drink were outstanding. Everything we tried we really enjoyed and savored. Well worth a visit and many returns.

    We sat at the bar and were able to see the chefs as well as the bartenders. This made things interesting and lively, but it might be difficult to have conversations with more than 2 or 3 people. Food was creative and delicious. We ordered 5 dishes that were a combination of courses and shared them all. We left with our bellies and palates very pleased.

    We really enjoyed our visit. We have been looking forward to going for some time and it was worth the trip. The food was excellent, as was the service, and the ambiance. I love where it is located as well. Not only does the area need an economic shot in the arm, but the steel plant made it a cool, industrial sort of experience. We will go again for sure.

    Superior Motors deserves a Michelin Star. It doesn't have one, but that's your benefit because it's way less expensive than most Starred restaurants. You cannot go wrong here. All food and drinks are phenomenal.

    This was our third or fourth visit. Wonderful service and ambiance. It pains me to write, cuisine was nothing exceptional. No new flavors, nothing that made you take a moment and put down your fork. We are fairly sophisticated people (believe me or not, I do not care) and do not mind small portions. The portions were comically so.

    Nice restaurant in a struggling part of town. Parking is mostly on the street. The restaurant is not well marked except for the "Braddock" neon sign on the end of the building; the restaurant name is embossed on the glass entry door but is hard to see at night; we knew it was a restaurant from looking in the window. We noticed other apparent first time patrons had the same trouble. Inside, we were seated at a corner table such that our seats were at adjacent sides with mine awkwardly facing the neighboring table, leaving me feeling included in their private space. I wonder if they felt the same. The view out the window is a giant, belching steel factory on the other side of Braddock Ave. The inside decor is modern industrial, which is in vogue today, and completely in character in the former auto dealership. I thought it was nice but my wife was less impressed (she just doesn't like the style). Our server was subtly annoying, perhaps because he wasn't personable and didn't seem to explain things very well. The lighting was very low making reading the menu difficult, especially for older folks who forgot their reading glasses. As a vegetarian, I was pleased the menu identified suitable options with a 'V' - however, all of them were "starters". The promptly served food was excellent; very creative and stylish. I had heard good things about the chef and was not the least bit disappointed. Our dinner for two people came to $90 including the tip but no drinks. All in all, it was a positive experience with the aforementioned caveats.

    Went for Valentine’s Day and was put at a broken table. All the tables were wedged in to get as many people as possible which left us being bumped by everyone and people’s hips knocking into our table and plates. Very poorly done, it came down to making money instead of keeping the customers happy, comfortable and coming back. This was the third time there and by far the worst. I felt sorry for the servers who were constantly getting yelled at because of the poor setup.

    Some of the best food we’ve had in Pittsburgh! We both enjoyed our starters immensely. I had lamb and my husband had crab, both incredible! The portion was very modest for the crab but my lamb was a healthy portion. Our main dish was also incredible! My husband had the pork with a cheese addition and I had beef with smoked potatoes. The beef had a few tough pieces at the end that were over cooked but the center pieces were juicy and delicious. We ended the meal with strawberries and cream. It was so decadent! But if you like dessert and want to feel like you ate a normal amount, don’t share. It was definitely a portion for one :) def give it a try if you are in Pittsburgh! Well done Chef Sousa!

    We had a very nice time! The music was a little too modern and disruptive for the meal, but they changed it to some jazz at some point and that was perfect. Loved the mocktails and excellent service from the wait staff, even on a super busy night. I hope for more vegan options in the future!

    Some truly stand out dishes that were expertly crafted and presented. My cocktail was stellar as well. Some courses outshined others, but dessert missed the mark for me. I have worked in bakeries for much of my career, so I may be a picky customer in that department, but the savory plates were delicious. Unique industrial/urban/modern vibe, service was impeccable. Wonderful place for a birthday dinner. For the level of service and quality of cooking I would say that the price was right. Had a nice dinner for two with one drink each for $125 total. Would recommend.
