Re: “Station is a hip little restaurant and bar in Bloomfield

I love station. the bartender always has great recommendations for both food and awesome drinks. it is a great place to grab two forks and share each dish with a friend. I enjoy the variety of ingredients -- each bite makes you pause and enjoy the flavors to come. kind of like an everlasting gobstopper!

Re: “Nicky's Thai Kitchen

This Thai restaurant is authentic and out of this world flavors of food. It's a must try if you're in Pittsburgh! Tom Yum Soup is very good, restaurant's specialty Pad Thai is awesome!
My favorite Masaman Curry. I love Nicky the owner very humble talented cook, Eddie the head chef is a terrific cook too!

Re: “The Summit, on Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington, hews to the gastropub spirit

Do Scarpaci's next! Wednesday is wing night, and standup comedy starts at 10pm. The wings are great and the beer is nearly free. Plus I can smoke in between wings without having to go outside.

Re: “The Summit, on Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington, hews to the gastropub spirit

Thanks for visiting, reviewing. I have to mention-- all cocktails are $6 during happy hour (5p-7p). This makes it affordable for locals to meet here regularly for the highest quality cocktails.

Re: “Nancy’s East End Diner

Re: “Prairie is the newest restaurant in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood

I'm with Friendship Resident. I wish I could get Angelique and Jason to reimburse me for the mediocre meal I had at Prairie on Saturday night after I booked a reservation based on this review. The steak and potatoes entree was poorly executed and the beef was low-quality, my meatloaf had no tower of onions on it like the one shown here and no jus on the plate either, and the cheese board was sad, sad, sad. Prairie gets a big NOPE from me, I won't be back.

Re: “The Flats on Carson

The sleaziest bar in pittsburgh. I was assaulted at this bar. Even though it happened in plain sight, none of the bartenders, bouncers or anyone helped me in any way whatsoever. Didnt offer me ice for me bleeding face, didnt accost the perpetrator, nothing. Later I went back and the manager didnt do shit. A very disgusting, unsafe place that attracts a rough crowd and careless employees. Avoid at all costs. There are plenty of better bars out there.

Re: “Prairie is the newest restaurant in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood

I could name you about 10 other places to eat around that area that are better-tasting, and less expensive. Apparently nobody at the CP tried the "Steak and Potatoes" menu item. For almost $30, it's absolutely awful. Plus on a Friday, the place was practically empty. Jeff should expect the air to leak from this concept as well, since it's poorly executed.

Re: “Dish Osteria

This place is an oasis. The menu is always the highest quality, the service is understated precision and the bar is so welcoming you almost forget your dinner reservation. Perfetto!

Re: “1844 Restaurant

I haven't been there for a number of years, but it was always my favorite when I lived in that area.

Re: “Della Terra Italian Bistro

Damn! Della terra was best kept secret in the Pittsburgh area. After this review, probably won't be any more :( The food is killer and reasonably priced, well worth the drive up 79!

Re: “One Thirty One East

My wife and I went to dinner at One Thirty-One East last Friday with friends, who have known Bernie Bereksazi since he was at Café Georgio and raved about the food he prepared. Once we got there, we realized that our friends actually understated the obvious. Every offering on the menu described a mouth-watering treat; the presentations were beautiful and increased the anticipation of what was to come; the tastes exceeded expectations. Once I finish this posting, I'll be making a reservation for this weekend!

Re: “Olives and Peppers

Rude service, ignorant manager. When confronted about a mistake she made she ran out of the building and hit out back doing god knows what instead of correcting the issue.

Re: “Pino's Contemporary Italian

Our first and probably our last visit to Pino's. The service was splendid and the old building was lovely. The booths do not leave enough height to cross your legs, very uncomfortable. We were only the second table seated at 530pm and they sat us right next to the other table... odd. The restaurant was very cold, and every time the door opened the frigid air poured right over our feet. I had to have dinner with my coat and scarf on. They had several space heaters, but were inefficient to keep the place comfortable. The restaurant was not busy at all for a Friday night. The salads were fresh and the dressing was excellent. I ordered the Lobster, shrimp, and scallop pasta. The pasta was a big ball of stuck together noodles, and the lobster was raw along with some of the scallops. I ate the shrimp and a few of the scallops that was it. My husband took home the pasta. I told the server about the food and she apologized. The owners wife was in the dinning room and stopped and spoke with everyone but us. The Chef himself came out of the kitchen and skipped over us as well. We left very unhappy and felt our Valentines dinner had been spoiled. The coffee, tea, and the Taramsu my husband had after dinner was really good. I do not think we will return anytime soon, maybe when the weather breaks we will give it another try. We shall see.

Re: “Mia Madre Trattoria

Mia Madre is far from new. It was in Avalon for years before moving to Kennedy Township.

I used to live 10 minutes away. It will be missed.
