Re: “Soho

I've not eaten at this restaurant for some time, but WOW!!! was the food fantastic when I did! Great Risotto, fantastic steak, service was wonderful and the portions were great too. I recall it being a bit pricier than $11-$19/plate, but honestly...it was well worth it.

Re: “1311

This, of course, is just an opinion of mine. I personally think good drinks and a fun atmosphere is the way to go when it comes to a bar. You absolutely cannot come in here and leave without making friends, or at very least having an amazing conversation. People watching is fun here, the cheap (strong) drinks bring in quite a interesting crowd. The music is good, it's diverse, so you don't get sick of hearing the same stuff over and over. They have a jukebox in the back if you care to take over DJing for a bit. They do have $5 pizzas. For those of you who enjoy craft beers, this is surely the place to be, as they have over 100 different kinds of crafts, and new ones in all the time that they post on facebook.com/pages/1311/… . If you've never had a craft, just ask any of the staff and they will be happy to explain them to you, and find one you're sure to enjoy based on your palate. They also have 8 big screen HD TVs, and a projector, for you to enjoy all sports games possible.

I'll admit, I am pretty biased. I'm one of their doormen, my name is Paul. On that note I'll add that I don't get paid for this, and I don't make any sort of commission. I just noticed that there are no up to date reviews on this place, so I thought I could leave some information. If you ever have any questions about anything, you are always welcome to ask me. I hope to see you at our bar soon, and I hope you leave some reviews for me to read! I'll leave a list of our specials below.

$5 Captain & Coke pitchers.
or (depending on the day of the week)
$5 Smirnoff Vodka pictures. Any flavor with any mixer you could imagine. There are 1,000's of possibilities. Some of the common favorites are Coke & Vanilla (vanilla coke), Blue Pitches are blueberry vodka with sprite and Blue Curaçao to add some color, and watermelon or strawberry vodka with cranberry juice.
$3 Fireballs or MiniBeers.
$4 Grape or Cherry Bombs.
$5 Pints of homemade Sangria. (Tastes amazing.)
$2.50 Coors Lite aluminum pints.

They also have a few beer specials, but those change by the day, stop on by to see all of those.

Re: “El Campesino

My fiance and I have driven by El Campesino restaurant in Robinson Town Center a handful of times on our countless shopping trips and had always wanted to visit there. All of our friends had gone there many times and kept bragging about how good the restaurant was. So we finally decided to give it a try..

Re: “Perle Champagne Bar

been there 4 times and had a wonderful times with friends. the first time we tried an assortment of tapas and with each bit i wa like "oh my God" it was that good. the delicate fusuin of flafors were a treat indeed. I always let the handsome manager sugest a cocktail and i haven't been disappointed. An enjoyable relaxing 4 hours just breezes by. I tend to avoid crowds so i haven't gone on a weekend night when there's entertainment. I'll have to try that. when we went there was nice music in the background that wasn't so loud that you couldn't enjoy good conversation with your friends. the last time wejust met friends for a drink and the manager sugested Velozi's for dinner. He actually walked us over, procured us the best table for six and introduced us to the owner. what an evening of great company great coctails and great food.

Re: “Piper's Pub

This is my favorite spot to eat on the southside! They have such a
different menu. Their fish sandwich and the salmon club sandwich
are the best things on the menu! I highly recommend them both!
Also the beer selection is great and the service is good too. Get
There early though cuz the place gets packed quick!

Re: “ModernFormations Gallery

I have had a different experience it seems than many reviewers in that I have taken Zumba class at the gallery. Jennifer runs the Zumba classes and is really one of the nicest people I've met. She's supportive and kind, not rude or judgmental in any way. It's very hard for me to believe we are talking about the same person. Definitely worth forming your own opinions about Jen and about the space...if you're experiences are anything like mine, you will certainly not be disappointed.

Re: “Baja Bar and Grill

I just found Pittsburgh's best kept secret... the Baja Bar at the Fox Chapel Yacht Club. There is no other place in the city that you can eat, drink and dance under the stars to some of the best bands in the 'Burgh.
