Comfort Food
Meat & Potatoes is a high end gastropub in downtown Pittsburgh. Its kitchen takes as its inspiration the idea of elevating comfort food to a gourmet level. Its chefs are inspired by fresh, seasonal ingredients and its bar staff creates innovative cocktails and serves a range of wines by the glass and draught beers, as well. The menu at Meat & Potatoes is a new take on basic. There are classic appetizers like fried pickles, grilled bread and fried Brussels sprouts, as well as more innovative fare like fried pigs ear and buttermilk fried chicken liver. Meat & Potatoes mains include pot roast, salmon and lamb neck cassoulet.

    We have been to Meat & Potatoes many times over the years. This was the first time we have been disappointed. I took my daughters for dinner before the show. We had drinks which were good and all ordered the Duck entree. The prices understandably have gone up. The duck was yummy and came with a sliver of polenta and a few leaves of greens. Each of us left hungry. I have never left hungry after eating here and after buying 3 dinners and 3 drinks for >$200 it was quite disappointing.

    Hadn't been in over 4 years. All the food from the filet, green spiced daiquiri, fries, and more were great and made up for the fact fried pickles weren't on the menu anymore and there weren't any seasonal specials. A bit pricier than I was expecting, but what isn't now? (Though not M&P's fault, but $20 at the nearest garage for parking was stupid.)

    Best dinner experience in the city! We arrived early to grab cocktails at the bar. The bartenders were amazing. Honestly if I was a billionaire I’d add these two to my entourage just to tag along and make drinks. They seemed to know exactly what each of us wanted without much help. Then we moved to dinner. Filet and duck were perfectly cooked and the server was attentive without being overbearing. All in all one of the best nights I’ve had in Pittsburgh.

    The restaurant is amazing. The only issue is that the chicken dish had so much oil and butter on the plate that I could barely eat the broccolini. Otherwise, great, but that had too much grease.

    Perfect cook on the pork chop. The filet has a symphony of flavors. Pumpkin crème brûlée is amazing. The couple next to us shared the tomahawk steak and couldn’t say enough great things about it. From the size to the flavor and the presentation. This restaurant is a must for anyone living in or visiting Pittsburgh.

Vegan meatloaf was delightful, and the salmon was “fire”!! 10/10 recommend! When we’re back in Pittsburgh we will definitely be coming back!

    Excellent restaurant. Been going to Meat & Potatoes since it opened in 2011 (several times for dinner, dozens of times over the years for lunch) and I can't say I've had a single bad meal. Sadly, they ended their lunch service this year so it'll be Dinner & Sunday Brunch from here on out. Very unique menu items and starters. The grilled bread with goat butter, devils on horseback, and bone marrow are all must-haves. Often have barreled age cocktails. I'd never had a "Last Word" but it's now one of my go-to cocktails after trying it here. Good selection of beer, absinthe and whisky as well-- M&P was one of the first places in this town where I found Japanese whisky. Reservations are highly recommended (seen walk-ins told 2h+ wait times on a Friday & Saturday)

    My husband and I had dinner at Meat and Potatoes following a theater show at the nearby Benedum Theater. I ordered the roasted chicken and my husband had the dinner special, skirt steak. While we agreed that both our entrees were delicious, his portions were decidedly smaller than mine. I ended up giving him about 1/3 of my chicken, which was fine, since the chicken was a very large portion. We had talked about getting the "Steak for Two," which was a 30+ oz steak, but decided against that. The couple seated next to us did get it, and the cutting board upon which the meal arrived barely fit on the very small, round table. They said it was very good, and took a good deal of it home with them. It was strange, at first, being seated inches apart from the tables on either side of us, but we found that it was easy to carry on a conversation without being overwhelmed by the conversations of other diners. They don't have a lot of seating, which explains why numerous patrons were turned away if they didn't have reservations. It is possible to sit at the bar and order from the full menu, but those seats were full while we were there. We had a gift card, and will return to use the rest of the card. I would definitely recommend making reservations, especially on the weekend. I used the "Open Table" reservation option here on Tripadvisor for our recent reservation. I liked the online reservation method since after trying to call the restaurant several times, I couldn't get anyone to answer the phone! But, do keep trying since the food is delicious and well worth making the effort to get there.

    Always an interesting place to eat. The restaurant is not roomy, but you don't feel crowded. Anchored by a large bar, the gastropub always offers interesting fare. Service is typically fair to good. Overall, you have to eat here at least once (or twice). Make reservations well in advance.

    Good food..small tables..patient waiter. Excellent Brisket Mac n cheese. Bone marrow toppings important--the 'pickled' things are subtle, even a non-pickle eater liked them! The Wagyu Flat Iron was the best tasting, tenderest piece of beef I've ever had, and I don't normally get very excited about steak. Worth it!

    If you love such foods as fried chicken livers with a spicy sauce, marrow on toast points or duck liver pate, you'll appreciate the offerings at Meat & Potatoes. The major drawbacks--the noise level and extremely small tables too close together in the room surrounding the bar can be avoided by requesting a table in the back room.
