Spoon Pittsburgh Ratings and Reviews
This highly rated Pittsburgh restaurant lived entirely up to its reputation. This is foody food plus just very good high quality dining. The new pork dish was fantastic as was the appetizer souffle. We did not try the four dish dining for the table but it looked excellent.
Dined here with a friend who had previously enjoyed this restauranteur's/chef's creative French cuisine at his previous restaurant, as had I; so we were anxious to try this new incarnation. We chose the Bar Frenchman site as opposed to the fancier Twisted Frenchman upstairs and were very pleased with the delicious food and knowledgable, attentive, and friendly server who championed the restaurant's use of local/regional farm sources. We both ordered the onion soup to start and for mains one ordered the half roasted chicken, the other ordered the smoked duck. All was excellent. We were too full for dessert. The décor is simple and unadorned, with perhaps too many hard surfaces, which tend to amplify noise. But the music was not too loud. A the few people at the bar were not too noisy on a quiet Wednesday evening. Parking looked like it might be a problem but a car pulled out of a spot right in front as we arrived, so we lucked out. All in all, a very pleasant experience.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and the wait staff was attentive. We mentioned it was our anniversary dinner and they went out of their way by writing Happy Anniversary on our dessert plate in chocolate and gorgeous handwriting. It was a very special touch that we really appreciated.
Last visit several years ago. Wanted to check out the remodel and new menu. The place reminded me of upscale cafe rather than a fine dining establishment. Strangely it seemed a little worn already. Had a great seat by the window but the frame needed painting or mold removed. I couldn’t tell which. The evening we were there it seemed to be overflow for the burgher place next door. Most people near us were ordering the burgher. Not a great sign.
Valet is a nice service and is reasonable.
The food was good. The blue cheese soufflé was incredible. The scallops were enjoyed by my wife and my hangar steak was good but served luke warm. There are many better options in Pittsburgh. Acacia for one.
This was a random pick based of off Open Table reviews. And my expectations were met. Food was outstanding, service seemed a bit off despite not being very busy, ambiance was a bit to much light which was also a bit odd. BUT the food was amazing! I will be back.
Service was friendly but not overbearing. Food was wonderful - surprising yet subtle flavor combinations. Everything was very well prepared. We ordered one of each - snapper, steak, chicken and pork so that we could try as much as possible. Nothing disappointed. The only thing off the mark was the macaron dessert (melting sorbet drowned the macarons), but the flourless chocolate cake was the best any of us had ever had. Highly recommend Spoon, especially for a special occasion.
The blue cheese soufflé is to die for! The rest of the food was a bit overpriced and pretty average. I had the pork as a main entree and it was a bit tough and definitely overpriced for what it was. Overall, the dining room is a bit blah but it's a decent spot. I wasn't floored, especially for the price point, but it was a nice dinner overall.
Friday night dinner for 3 on the patio was delightful. Professional and personable service. Good wine by the glass selection. Gluten free selections including house made chips instead of bread basket. Beef tartare and Don Don noodles, mussels and pork belly loin chop and flourless chocolate torte were all excellent.
Group of 4 arrived very early on a Sunday evening so the restaurant was very quiet. Pleasantly attentive service and helpful answers to our questions. Each suitably enjoyed their food. I did feel the burger could have used something more, perhaps a more evident sauce/salsa, to round out that dish. To my taste it was a little dry. Would certainly return.
My boyfriend and I went to Spoon to celebrate his birthday. We had always wanted to try it but could never find a reservation that worked with our schedules. We went on a Saturday for an early dinner and the place was empty (which meant the service was great and we had lots of time to chat and weren't trying to talk over any noise.) The decor is very modern and the menu is pretty intricate as well. We weren't super hungry, so we skipped the whole 3-course-meal thing and went right to the mains. Overall a great experience and a great ambiance. Would go back for a special occasion again! Perhaps not an everyday sort of restaurant, however. It can get pretty pricey.
My boyfriend and I went here for the first time for our anniversary this past weekend. All four courses were amazingly delicious, and the service was excellent. They even wrote "Happy Anniversary" on our dessert. Nice atmosphere and overall great value and experience. Highly recommend!!!
Despite the super noisy infant behind us, which honestly felt out of place, the service was impeccable and the food amazing. The wait staff was very attentive to water, drinks, and food needs while also not being over bearing. The food was amazing. Definitely worth the trip!
We had very high expectations for this restaurant however they definitely were not met. We had the chefs selection menu as we figured whatever the chef chose to showcase would be the best to get. The tuna tartare started the meal off well, however it went downhill from there. From the mussels to the peanut fried chicken, it was lackluster at best. It may have been what we selected to get and the rest of the menu could be better, though we won’t be returning any time soon.
The food was overly salty. I had their empanadas for an appetizer and it was spicy and crispy. However my scallop entree was overly salty and they used baby scallops instead of king scallops. The pavlova was big enough to share between two people and I wish the peach was more cooked/charred.
This was amazing!! The food was spectacular and the service fabulous. We did a four course chef's choice dinner. It was adventuresome on our part but so worth it. Everything was delicious and the presentation was great. I am a foody and I highly recommend this restaurant. Go out of your way if needed to go here.
Failed re-vamp of menu and ambiance. When first opened this was the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. The attempt to reinvent theirselves failed. The Asian-Latin fusion was poorly executed and did not deliver. Spoon should go back to their roots of excellent traditional food. Great cheeses, amazing steaks, soups...We noticed other customers also unhappy with their food. The service was ok but not the same as it used to be. Overall disappointing. I've already referred friends thinking of going here to other better restaurants in the area.
