    John’s service was excellent. We had lamb with pasta, pork chop, tuna tartare, bone marrow. Bone marrow used to be very tasty, but now it has too much sauce or salsa on it. Same with the pork chop. Chef needs to let the natural goodness come through. But, the meal still good. The tartare was excellent.

    Beef Wellington was worth the wait. Fried Brussels were deliciously savory. Root to berry cocktail is fresh with tart lime and sweet strawberry. Only complaint is as with last time we were here, it is drafty and cold by door, even at high top seating. New door with better insulation please.

    We’ve eaten here several times so we know it is good. However, this time there was something off with the service. Our meal took almost 40 minutes to arrive with no explanation. They did take off 2 cocktails from the bill, so that seems fair. The food was good as usual. I’m chalking it up to a bad night.

    My boyfriend and I ate dinner here for Valentine’s Day, we have been many time before and always loved it. I ordered a salad, I said I was vegetarian and didn’t eat cheese but beyond that they could put whatever else (veggies, etcetera) in it they please. Since it was Valentines Day and very busy I didn’t want to say anything, this was the only thing I ordered and our bill was $100 but the salad I received was only romaine lettuce ripped off the stem—and nothing else. We were really disappointed unfortunately.

    Meat and Potatoes is our special occasion restaurant for a reason. The food is always delicious and we enjoy trying something different each time we come. The drinks are well made and the staff has never been short of patient and kind. For someone curvier I would say to request a high top or stand alone table, the 2 person booth on the back wall can be very close quarters.

    Food, drinks and service were all great and we loved the atmosphere as well. The space was dark and on the livelier side which we enjoy. We had the carpacio app, two fliets and the creamed spinach with the chocolate dessert, all were phenomenal. We also ordered cocktails and a bottle of wine. We never waited too long for anything but also were never rushed. This was our first visit and we will consider returning any time we're back in the city.

    Overrated restaurant. Very small place with tables packed very close to each other. Basic bread and butter is a menu option, not complementary. Less enthusiastic staff for such a high end restaurant. Ok for one time experience.

    Arrived for 6:15pm res, waiter asked & we told him we had an 8pm show at the Benedum. Had a cocktail & a glass of wine - no apps or salads. Food took 45-50min & my steak was lukewarm at best, although prepared perfectly med rare. We ate half the steak before realizing the peppercorn sauce was on the side. Thought it should be on top. It also took a while to get our check. Not a bad experience but we expected better.

    Oh dear! What happened to one of my favorite places? The food was barely edible and twice the price. $29 for 2 marrow bones and a loaf of bread! Are you kidding me? And no other accompaniments? And was what the gross relish on top? You used to offer 3 bones with capers, egg, toppings. The Brussels sprouts were okay. The pasta was tasteless. Too much pepper on everything. I'm sad. We won't be back. What a loss!

    Meat and Potatoes is one of Pittsburgh's long standing, classic restaurants. This was my second time here but the first time I came was over 10 years ago so... basically my first time again hahaha! They are located downtown right by all the theaters and they are perfect for a date night . We got a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary which was so sweet of them!! For a drink, I ordered the Red Blend. The red blend was super unique, I can't even describe it lol. For an appetizer, we got the Parkerhouse Rolls. The rolls were a little sweet but not overpowering. Sooo tasty!! I ordered the Filet Mignon for my main dish. The filet was amazing. They put blue cheese on it and it just went so well with the filet. My boyfriend ordered the Rossini Burger and it came with a side of rosemary fries that I also ate :) The fries were great. My boyfriend said the burger was extremely flavorful and juicy. The service was fabulous as well. The guy that we had was super nice!! I'm so happy that we decided to dine at Meat and Potatoes. We are definitely going to be adding them to our restaurant routine! They are pretty small so if you want to go I highly recommend reservations.

    Beyond incredible. Our bartender mixed up a custom drink for me, all I had given her was fruity and sweet and she mixed up something amazing! We got the carpacchio, pig candy, and truffle fries for appetizers and the beef Wellington for two. Everything was exceptional! Our waiter was attentive without being on top of us and staggered our appetizers perfectly! His wine recommendation was perfect as well!

    We were looking forward to our dinner as it has been hard to get a reservation. Very unfriendly hostess, our waiter was very nice, but was hard to find once our meal arrived and harder to locate to pay our bill. The mussels were undercooked. My$60+ strip steak should have sliced easily with my steak knife, but I had to literally saw through it despite it being cooked "warm but red in center." Our entrees were brought out, but with no utensils to eat with. Cocktails were great. There was cold/cool air blowing on us the whole time. Since it was less than 20 degrees outside we were hoping for a warm environment to enjoy our meal.
