I took my boyfriend to Meat & Potatoes for lunch on a Thursday. Only room available was at the bar, which didn't bother us. The whole restaurant was swamped and the bartender was extremely busy, but all of the employees were incredibly courteous and helpful, especially said bartender. (For reference's sake, it was packed from about 12:15pm to 1:30pm--primarily office workers on lunch breaks. Go for a later lunch or get a reservation if you can.) He had a beer and I had a glass of wine, both of which ran about $10 each. The glasses were small, given the price, but the selections were good. The fish and chips were FANTASTIC: super-crispy, flaky batter, tender fish, perfectly seasoned fries, and lots of great dipping sauces. I had the smoked duck salad. The duck was to die for, and the salad as a whole had great flavors, but it was a smidgen dry and bitter. Both entrees were about $15 a plate and totally worth it. Atmosphere was decent, nothing to die over compared to other gastropubs, but still clean, presentable, and fun. Our only major complaint was that service was reeeeeally slow, even by lunch rush standards, but we think the food and service made it a great experience.

Amazeballs. Went for dessert (baked chocolate mousse omg) and then again for brunch. Food is heavy but absolutely delicious. We'll definitely be going back next time were in town. Oh, and the staff is awesome!

I have been here now twice and everytime I have been impressed with the quality of the food. The service is great and provide appropriate recommendations for the various dishes. I have had the wagyu steak which is possibly the best piece of meat you can ever eat. The bone marrow is an intriguing dish and rich (which the waiter kindly informed me about), but it was so delicious. The atmosphere is perfect for a date or going out with friends to the bar.

Nice sazerac to start. I had the steak tartare appetizer. It had a soft boiled egg, capers and mustard to accompany it. The steak was delicious. My entree was the smoked pork chop. I was intrigued by the title of the dish so I got it. The chop is not actually smoked for cooking. It was a thick, double cut grilled chop. I was expecting a slow-cooked chop, but it was nonetheless well cooked and very tasty. The sauce with beans and carrots was a smoky barbecue sauce, hence the name. For desert I had malted vanilla bean pot de creme because the blueberry crumble was no longer available. The scene was typical gastropub. Pretentious beer in cans, nice liquor, well apparelled and bearded bartenders, standard cocktails with a few clever variations. I'll probably go back tomorrow night since I have a very short trip here in Pittsburgh. No other restaurants in the immediate vicinity (walk-able from my hotel) seem to be a contender for my business. I was eyeing the duck breast entree on the menu, and a few of the other reviews mentioned the bone marrow appetizer being worth trying.

Great brunch! We heard a lot of great things about this place from locals, so we had to try when we got to town. Even at 1pm it was still packed, but we got a table quickly. The food was totally stellar and we got to take advantage of the bloody Mary bar. The atmosphere was cozy though small, but who cares what the place is like when you can get the best chicken and waffles in town?!

The hostess staff were a bit pretentious, young and curt. Nothing alittle more instructing/training can't fix. No biggie. Once I found my own seat at the bar, the staff was lovely. Suggestions were offered along with samples of current drafts. I was present for PGH restaurant week and opted for the tasting menu. I should've ordered from the menu. I was not impressed with the prefixe for that event. The ham bbq was cold. Very sweet. The dessert was simply chocolate pudding. Good pudding but not very inventive. The highlight of the prefixe was the kielbasa and steak salad. The menu items that I saw coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled delicious. I did have the duck liver and it was perfect. Going back a second time to give it a second go from the menu.
