    we sat in the bar and transferred to restaurant seating - our drinks disappeared without asking whether we were done with them! I even brought mine to the table & it was gone by the time I turned around! Server should have asked!! Although the food was delicious, as always, the amount of sides on the main plates was quite meager considering the cost....and relative to the past.

    We had the three middle Eastern inspired dips for an app. Three of us had the duck which was very well prepared and delicious. The other 2 had the halibut which was equally good. Cooked perfectly, hot and tasty.

    Everything was delicious. My wife had the salmon which was crispy on the outside and a perfect medium rare inside. The little sweet potatoes were wonderful. I rarely order beef or pork when out, but a friend insisted I try the pork chop and it was amazing. Tender and flavorful and accompanied by a delicious risotto. The server, Em was gracious and helpful without being obtrusive. The whole evening was terrific and we look forward to going back.

    By far my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food was absolutely amazing, ricotta cavatelli was delicious and the halibut and risotto was amazing. Bourbon brûlée was also really good. The wait staff is also great and knowledgeable. Never disappointed when we dine here. Can’t wait to go back!!

    Choice was good, presentation was good, service was very good, but my scallop appetizer was far too peppery - it drowned out the delicate scallop flavor. Also, the lobster pasta dish was too peppery and that marred the flavor of the lobster! Someone in the kitchen was going much too heavy with the pepper! The chocolate raspberry bread pudding was great, however, and up to the Casbah standard of old!

    Only downside was the valet parking attendant.....very rude - mocked patrons and swore at one all in the matter of a few minutes even though there was nothing that actually happened. One person joked about the car being parked far away and he just lost it.
