Legume Ratings and Reviews
We were a party of 4 celebrating birthdays. We had an absolutely wonderful first experience. The food was fresh, delicious, and presented beautifully. We checked the menu before arriving to see the new items added for that evening. We had appetizers which were a wonderful start to the meal. The smoked whitefish was fabulous as was the Baby YaYa carrots. The pork shoulder entree made use of in season peaches. It was literally the best pork I've ever eaten. Dessert was the finishing touch with a perfect chocolate torte and wonderful coffee. The carrot cashew cake was also terrific. I had a really nice mojito and the mint tea mocktail was also a hit. Service was the perfect balance, friendly and attentive but not overly solicitous. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back.
The food and service is always outstanding. Love how innovative the menu is using high quality local ingredients. We are always blown away by the flavors even when simple ingredients are used. We always look forward to our dinners at Legume - it is by far our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh!!!
The menu changes every day so we expected a surprise; however the biggest surprise was that 4 of the 6 entrees and several share plates were sold out. About 50% of the tables were vacant (Tuesday night) which indicates that the restaurant didn't prepare its grocery order well.
The steak quality was moderate to poor (especially given the price) and the service was overly attentive before ordering and disappeared once food was delivered. The saving grace was the drink menu: we all enjoyed the cocktails.
To conclude: skip the restaurant and head straight to their bar next door. It might have been an off night so I would be open to trying again in the future but ultimately it fell short of hyped expectations.
We were challenged getting to the restaurant on time for our reservation because of numerous events, but when we called to say we were running late, they were happy to accommodate us. The service was great, we sampled beer, and picked a good one, and the food was beyond amazing. Definitely worth the obstacles we faced getting there!
The atmosphere was quite nice. We quickly received our drinks and delicious pate appetizer. For an entree, I was quite disappointed in my lamb leg steak with yellow corn grits, grilled radicchio and rhubarb chutney. The lamb leg steak was a very thin piece of meat and quite overcooked varying from medium well to well done. The grilled radicchio was charred and bitter. The corn grits and chutney, however, were quite delicious.
We had a very enjoyable evening. The cocktails were perfect and a unique variety. The wine list was excellent. Four of us had Halibut. It cooked to perfection. One member had the ravioli and said it was stuffed with a very creamy cheese. The other guest had the veg. Tasting. It was tasty. Desserts were just as good. The waitress was amazing. We asked if we could change our table as a group of people near us were noisy . There was no problem and we were seated at a quiet area near the back. She knew about all food choices and was able to recommend choices. we were dismayed to learn the one entree was sold out...the goat. Plan to go back if they have it again.
I'd say it is one of the Burgh's best.
Excellent! We enjoyed the pork and pistachio pate, an order of tallow fried potatoes , and beef tartare. We shared the skillet fried chicken with grits and and garlic scrapes entree. Ending with a perfect pavalova and decadent chocolate dessert. Being an avid foodie with always a measure of constructive criticism to offer, I have to say there was nothing I would have changed albeit the loud patrons seated near us. Service was attentive not intrusive. Having recently returned from a stay in Italy and Paris this meal was on point and memorable.
Legume Bistro is a true gem in Pittsburgh. I have been enjoying their sensibly sourced, delicious food since the night they opened in Regent Square 10 years ago. As a vegetarian, I am always able to find thoughtful delicious food. The staff at Legume is exemplary, kind, knowledgable and joyful.
Lamb steaks were nicely prepared - two in our party had them; one had the three course vegetarian special of the day which they really enjoyed. It took an inordinate amount of time between conclusion ofour salad course and service of our entree. The restaurant became very noisy as seating rose to barely 50% capacity. Service was very informed and reasonably attentive ... could've been more informative during the long lapse of time between salad & entree and after the bill was presented. Parking in the area for this restaurant is horrendous - their site could do more to explain where parking is available.
It was a very nice experience at the Legume date night. They offer a special menu with $50 for two people, three courses per person. I had the vegetarian borscht, goat rib ravioli, and we split the two desserts, a merengue-type one with almond filling, and one flourless chocolate cake. All the food was delicious, and it paired well with the date night drink specials ($5 wine). I highly recommend it!
Excellent food with careful attention to presentation. Locally sourced ("food with a face") with integrity. Enjoyed the house-made paté, goat loin, and grass-fed beef rib steak followed by fresh mint-infused pot du creme with fresh blueberries. Primarily French and other European wine list. Chose an excellent dry red from the Duoro region in Portugal, Quinta do Crasto. All in all a very nice meal and evening. The only issue was the long wait between courses on a busy Saturday night.
We had a great experience celebrating our anniversary here. I had lamb steak that was perfection, and my partner had very good walleye. I always get the beef tartare here because it is superb. Make sure to let them know in the reservation request if it's a special occasion!
This restaurant had different and delicious offerings. Never disappointed when I eat here and always try something that I haven't had pre iously. Great service (thank you, Chris). Had the lobster ravioli which is featured now and again. It was superb as was the other things that I had. Bravo! Keep up the great work. Check out when the Weds date night monthly specials are offered. Terrific value and great way to check this place out.
Enjoyed a terrific dinner. Server was knowledgeable, attentive yet unobtrusive. Food was excellent (lobster ravioli that I'd read about in email from Legume was all that I hoped it would be; friend started with amazing cold herb soup followed by lamb steak that was well prepared; shared fruit clafouti dessert to finish). Very enjoyable.
I took my husband here for a birthday dinner. Our server was excellent. He was very helpful explaining the menu and making recommendations. When we told him we were just moving to the area he gave us suggestions for other places to try and things to see. The cocktails were creative and really good, as was the food. We will definitely be back!
