    Great location for dinner before Heinz Hall or Benedum Center shows. We had cocktails at the bar while waiting for our table. Service was prompt, professional and the cocktails were prepared perfectly. Our bar tab was seamlessly transferred to our table when we were seated. Appetizers: tuna tartar, bone marrow and lobster bisque. Entrees: Seared Scallops on a bed of crab risotto with crispy kale, Filet mignon with potatoes. Desserts: Coconut cake, creme brulee and chocolate mousse pot. Every item was prepared and served excellently. The presentation was lovely. Food taste and temperature was perfect. Portions were very nice and we all commented that we were able to finish our entire meal including appetizers and desserts without feeling overstuffed. I could eat the scallops and chocolate mousse dessert every day, they were outstanding. The staff is obviously top notch and well trained. The vibe is just very relaxing and enjoyable. We were able to easily carry on a conversation during our meal. I would highly recommend and we will definitely return.

    This was our first experience at Meat and Potatoes and we were just wowed with everything. The Daisy tequila drink and Dirty martinis were cold and refreshing. We split the wedge salad which was cool, crisp and delicious. We shared our entrees the Steak frites and the Scalloos. Can you say yumm? We considered ordering a side of frites, they were so good, but saved room for the coconut cake which was the perfect balance of sweet. Perhaps the best was the friendly but courteous service we received from Chris. He was warm and personable and explained the menu well. We look forward to our next visit.

    The staff needs to learn to speak in hushed tones. They were in the back trying to guess the reason for our visit and came up with either birthday or business meal. Then decided that perhaps it was "that kind of business" meal. I, in no way, was dressed provocatively to give them such an obnoxious guess. Then when we ordered the "house water" instead of bottled water, this apparently was a rather comedic request. I'm not easily offended, but it was all rather rude. The tables next to us were offended on our behalf. The meal itself was delicious, as it always is, but seriously, learn to gossip so that your guests cannot hear. Also, maybe learn not to make such rude assumptions.

    I ordered the scallop entree and got 3 scallops for $48 with no sides. I thought it was a joke as I sat looking at the dish. Are you kidding me I thought. My wife ordered the steak frittes entree for $65. She received a nice piece of steak with a large portion of fries. In my opinion the prices are way too high! And we parked at the Penn Garage at 5:35 pm. and left at 7:00 pm. and paid $30. So, not only did we pay way too much for the food at the meat and potatoes restaurant, I believe the Penn garage is charging way to much to park for only an 1 1/2 of parking to dine!!! Definitely PRICE GOUGING!!! You asked for my experience and there you have it.

    We had a 7 PM Sunday reservation and were very very much looking forward to the beef Wellington. When we arrived, we were told they were out of it, sigh, first problem. Pivoted to the filet mignon and pork chop, which were both awesome. The kitchen was a little backed up, but our server Allows always on the spot and kept us informed of the situation. Definitely would recommend..

    Loved the new renovations, this was my 1st visit since the original design. Our server was super sweet, drinks were great, and lots to choose from on the menu. I inquired about the size of the filet and was told by our server who seemed uncertain it was 6oz or 8oz. I ordered it medium. When my steak arrived it appeared to be no more than 3oz-4-oz which is super small compared to what I was told, it was accompanied buy 5 tiny potatoes and when I cut into the steak it was completely overcooked. For $70 I expected an adult meal, not something from the kids menu.

    Pricey but worth it. The drinks and entrees were on point. The service was efficient and friendly but not intrusive. A bit noisy, but the music was the appropriate volume to appreciate it yet carry on a conversation. We’ve always enjoyed eating here and it remains one of our go-to places when we’re in town.
