This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. It's very small and cozy, and the atmosphere is perfect - a friendly neighborhood feel. It has a small menu that changes periodically, and the food is delicious. The service is very good. I love that it's BYOB. It helps to make it a great value.

Found this restaurant trough the entertainment book. We were headed to Heinz Hall for a show. When we arrived, the restaurant was not very full so the service was great. As the restaurant filled, the service went down hill. There seemed to be only 1 waitress for the entire restaurant and she seemed to spend more time with her "regulars". She probably had 8-10 tables working at once..way too many to provide good service. We ordered the Yukon Potatoes as an appetizer and they were excellent. I ordered the crab cakes over cheddar and broccoli risotto. The 2 crab cakes were small, but were definitely more crab than filling. They were excellent. The risotto, however, was very bland..not much flavor. I added some salt, but didn't seem to help. My boyfriend ordered the butternut squash ravioli with a cinnamon, brown sugar sauce. The sauce was so think that it was actually gummy, almost the consistency of a paste . It was too heavy for the ravioli and there wasn't much flavor. When we were ready for our check, it seemed to take quite a long time and once we received it, there was quite a wait for her to come over to pick up the card and return it to us. We had to ask the owner for it. We did tell the owner about the ravioli and seemed appreciative of the feedback and gave us a $10 gift card to return. I don't think we will. We also have friends looking for a spot for a rehearsal dinner and initially thought I'd recommend this restaurant, but I won't based on this experience.

Have used Sausalido catering many times and LOVE it, so I went to have a meal in the restaurant for the first time. The food was good, but not exceptionally good like their catering. The brussel sprouts are usually my favorite when we order catering, but when dining in, they were very bitter and drowning in sauce. The seasonal salad was very good but also drenched in dressing, which made it hard to finish. However, the squash ravioli, pork, and blood orange cheesecake were all really good. We were the first ones in the restaurant at 5:30, but as the restaurant filled up, service slowed down significantly. We finally left at 8:00 after staring down the waitress until she brought us our check. Was a little disappointed with the dine-in experience so will stick to the catering.

Some of the best crab cakes I’ve ever eaten. Everyone enjoyed their meal. BYOB so don’t forget to bring a bottle of wine or some beer. You can buy at the bar across the street but it’s more expensive than a store.

Food was good but disappointed in the service. The server never cleared our appetizer or salad plates prior to serving us dinner, made for a crowded table.

We had a large group of 11 for dinner and we couldn't have picked a better place. They were very accommodating and we were all served our meals at the same time. The fact it is BYOB was also a huge plus and it was fun to share all the wine we brought. Great and friendly service!

I've been to Sausalido multiple times and the food is consistently very good. The fact that it is BYOB is another plus. The menu changes seasonally and therefore, there are opportunities to try different entrees.

Sausalido was packed to the rafters on Saturday yet they still managed with some small waits here and there to be very very good. It was nice to see owner Nick Mineo, who is so involved with their great catering business that we hardly see him in the restaurant, chatting and visiting with patrons. The food was really good and the wait staff pulled off the herculean task of waiting on all those tables, particularly Kate our server. Kudos to all, if you have not visited Sausalido yet you need to soon.

A group of 8 friends dined at Sausalido on Saturday evening. Our reservation was at 7:15, but the table wasn’t ready, so we happily grabbed a drink at the bar next door and were seated around 7:45. The waitress took care of our waters and opening wine bottles, but after that the service went downhill very quickly. It took ages for her to take appetizer orders and then even longer (more than an hour!) to take our entree orders. We sat at 7:45 and our entrees were delivered at 9:45. On a trip to the ladies’ room, I noted that the kitchen was a disaster. The floor was slippery, there was food everywhere. Based on other reviews, I have to believe something went terribly wrong the night of 2/24/18. Sadly, while the food could have been worse, it wasn’t nearly good enough to ever return. Our appetites were gone by that time, but the food looked like it had been sitting around, under a warmer, for way too long. Tasteless and just incredibly disappointing.

We went to Salsalido with friends. We all really enjoyed our meal. All of the food tasted fresh and delish. It was a nice small room. Cozy and not all all loud with really bothers me about so many places these days. Our waitress was friendly and food all came quickly. She never made us feel rushed. It was a very nice night out.

The service was very poor even though it didn't appear to be busy. My fiancee order a pasta dish which was dry and the pasta was clumped together. Probably the lowest quality pasta I have ever seen in a restaurant. My meal came with a side of broccoli, which was a single piece of broccoli. And it took over an hour after ordering for our entrees to arrive. Although there was nearly an hour gap between serving appetizers and entrees, during which our server rarely took notice of us, the staff acted as of this as normal. No apology or even acknowledgememt of an unusually long wait. This was a first, last, and only experience.

My friend and I started with the gouda cheese appetizer which was outstanding. The salads that came with dinner were not your run-of-the-mill side salad, good with a nice selection of vegetables. The artichoke bean dip that was served with the bread had a Pleasant taste although we could not decide what it was without the waitress telling us. The entrees were excellent my friend had the crab cakes and I had the hanger steak. Would definitely recommend based on this experience. It was my first time there
