    The positives include nice ambiance, good cocktails, and delicious chicken saltimbocca. However, the restaurant did not live up to the 4-5 star reviews I saw here for many reasons: the bread was excessively hearty (perhaps stale) and served with ricotta and a bit of olive oil which was very bland; the borata came with a lovely mix of olives, peaches, prosciutto and tomatoes, but neither the peaches not tomato were ripe and the whole thing had been refrigerated so it came quite cold (bad for both the cheese and tomato); the Bolognese was bland; the saltimbocca came with 2 piecs of chicken, but only one was topped with prosciutto and parmesan, the other was completely plain; and the server very inattentive even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Overall better than many of the Italian restaurants in Pittsburgh, but that speaks more to the number of old, sorry Italian restaurants in the city and not to the quality of this one. I wouldn't recommend and won't return.

    We had not been back to Spoon for a long time. We very much enjoyed our sophisticated meal. We had wine and interesting gin cocktails followed by a winter salad and a takeoff of sushi with crabmeat wrapped in tuna with a wasabi cream sauce. The bread basket was wonderful with a variation of cornbread, biscuits, and baguettes. The shellfish stew had more mussels and shrimp than I have ever had in a similar dish of bouillabaisse and cioppino, with more vegetables and less garlic. My wife had the chicken with a mushroom stuffing, which was surprisingly excellent, her choice being made on her limited palate. We were very full and chose coconut ice cream with chocolate chunks and raspberry sorbet. Our only complaint is that the menu always has a lot of interesting idiosyncrasies. That printed online does not reflect the evening’ s menu, explaining my wife’s choice of chicken. It would be helpful if an up-to-date menu were available so there are no surprises for those who have specific tastes.

    The food is great, the service is great. A nice place to take a date. The bar is nice for eating alone or with a friend. The Bartenders are knowledgable. I wish the lighting was better. It's usually too brightly lit, but overall it's a good dining out experience.

    Just ok so too pricey for the product. Scallops tasted good but overcooked. Short ribs were good except onion topping Wes super super salty. Ruined it. Filet very good but the entire plate was brown. No color or other flavor. Bummer. We won’t return.

    Recently celebrated our anniversary at Spoon and it was an amazing experience. The service was excellent. Our waiter was engaging and very knowledgeable about the food which was spectacular fom the short rib foie sliders to the scollops carbonara in uni cream sauce to the specially decorated pavlova. Everything was perfect. We chose Spoon because we had a gift card but we will go back because we loved everything about it!

    This was such a wonderful choice for our anniversary. Not only were the food proportions great for the price, but the food was spectacular. We were able to relax and take our time, and the waitress was wonderful when it came to pace and being the right amount of attentive. I would highly recommend for a casual dinner or special occasion, as the setting allows for both. Overall, it was a great experience and we’ll be going there again.

    It is unusual to find lamb shank in Pittsburgh. Spoon's is excellent - literally falling off the bone at a touch of the fork. The accompanying risotto was exceptional - creamy and lightly flavored. The General Tso's cauliflower was a knock out - I want to make it at home! I was a disappointed in the pavlova; the shell was too hard and didn't care for the curd or the cranberries. Stick with the classic fresh fruit and whipped cream :)

    The food and our server, Ben, were exceptional! We tried many foods we never ate before and because of the fantastic meal, decided to try and replicate the meal . The only improvements would be to clean the sticky floors and have more tables for 2 - 4 people other than the banquet. One sits closer to a stranger than to their date

    Food looked good and was nicely balanced. The soup was outstanding, and though I was initially concerned about use of truffle oil (not being a great fan), it was absolutely fine and nicely balanced. The main course of roast chicken was delicious - though I would expect roasted root vegetables to have some caramelisation and not be quite so crunchy. The pavlova was the least successful I thought - some cream would be usual and would have cut through the acidity of the lemon.

    We had the restaurant week special. The mushroom fennel soup and bread basket were amazing. The entree, black cod in miso sauce with noodles was very good, but not amazing. The date cake dessert was to die for. Very good dinner for the cost.

    Spoon is usually a great Pittsburgh staple for good food, however, i hadn't been there in a while. The food and ambiance was still good as usual, but the service was just so odd. First, i asked our waiter which of two dishes he recommended and he replied "I haven't had either of them. I don't eat the food, I just serve it." Really? You are waiting at a restaurant where service is part of the overall experience and the chef hasn't had all of its wait staff try every dish? Even if you haven't tried them all, to make a comment like that sounds like you have no clue about the food you serve. He also didn't give us a minute to look over the menu before he asked what we wanted to eat, and lingered around our table while we looked. At the end, he gave us the wrong table's check. I will return to Spoon again, but I do hope at that point the wait staff is a bit more knowledgeable about the food they are serving.
