Re: “The Commoner

Dave, the menu seems to have changed a bit since was there, so I can't recall everything, but we had the Chopped Live, Pork Cheeks, Bone Marrow, brick chicken, brussels sprouts and a salad that is no longer on the menu, as well as the sticky toffee pudding (to die for) and pot de creme.

Re: “The Commoner

What did you order, Marcy? sounds like they did a nice variety looking at the simple to more complex dishes. A good test of a new place is if they can correctly cook their proteins and here it sounded like they missed the mark.

Re: “The Commoner

No cocktails or dessert? All your entrees were beef? I actually loved the Commoner but I think we tried more variety than you did.

Re: “Emil's Lounge

Going to Emil's and not ordering the fish sandwich is like going to Vinnie's and ordering a salad !

Re: “Altius

I have dined there three times and although I think the view, the space, and the service are great, the food is always just a shade away from being right - excellent review.

Re: “Wild Sage

I ordered the butter poached lobster tails on Valentine's day and they were served dry and tough. I think it was death by heat lamp. I found none of it extraordinary.

Re: “One Thirty One East

My husband and I have had dinner at One Thirty One East on several occasions and every visit has been a great experience! The food and service always top notch! We've had several of their signature dishes, one being Paella, which was wonderful! My husband had Osso Bucco and it was also outstanding. We've had Chicken and Grits, Lamb Noodle and Scallops as well. We can't wait for the weather to break, so we can go back. The appetizers are rocking it too! Love those Brussels Sprouts! What a treat to see such dedicated people bring a new look and outstanding food to Carnegie. Congratulations Foodie Pittsburgh!

Re: “One Thirty One East

Pricey but had a really nice night. Food was really good. Was told to go for the brussels sprouts. I still like the ones at Butcher in the Rye better but they're really good too.

Re: “Cucina Bella

We went there last night for a party. Expected 7 persons. It grew and grew. Each time more came the staff handled in stride. For all 20 who made it. The staff had led all and orders were taken and delivered. All shared there food (pizzas mostly) and some appetizers. What delicious meat balls. The wait staff was not even visible as they went about their business And everything got done.
Thats all about the service. You can go you self to taste the best pizza ever. At least try the meat ball appetizer. Make my wine red.

Re: “Bistro 9101

I love the bistro! The north hills truly needed this. I would recommend their steakhouse Saturdays or live music on Fridays. One of my new favorite spots by far!

Re: “Central Diner

As a transplant from Jersey, I can say that, not only are they a true representation of the traditional Jersey diner, they are probably one of the best I've ever been to. Wishing Jennifer and Dimitri the best of luck for continued success.

Re: “Central Diner

Yes, it was a Denny's, not an Eat n' Park. I noticed this reading the paper today and came here specifically to request a correction.

Re: “Central Diner

That's what I was going to say as well -- pretty sure that was a Denny's, not an Eat n' Park.

Big improvement either way, though.
