Legume Ratings and Reviews
Had a wonderful anniversary dinner! The food was amazing! We truly enjoy the attention to detail, the fresh foods and the overall care to deliver amazingly crafted dishes. The service was impecable! My only recommendation is to work on lowering the music volume. It was unusually loud, for some reason... Maybe softer music?

The food and service was amazing but I have to admit for the price I found the ambience just kind of blah.
Treat for out-of-towner
An out-of-towner (Washington, DC), I discovered Legume through Pittsburgh Magazine. I actually dined there on back-to-back evenings. An excellent chilled asparagus/leek soup was the highlight both nights. An entree centering on crispy farro was creative, novel and good, if not spectacular, with a little too much emphasis on the farmers cheese, and not enough on the farro. My second entree of goat neck ravioli was very good, with the ravioli perfectly al dente. The rustic bread, with nicely softened butter, was also very good. The ambience both evenings was very nice and the service was attentive, professional and non-annoying. My partner for one meal, a Manhattanite, thought the quality of the decor did not match that of the food.

Always love Legume, we have been patrons since it opened in Regent Square & enjoyed the 10th anniversary special! Love the newsletter keep up the good work.

I've been going to Legume for many years, and I never grow tired of it. The menu is short, but it changes all the time, with dishes the defy any particular category or ethnicity. The service people are friendly and knowledgable. It's usually crowded, and a bit noisy, but not so much to prevent conversation.

Steak tartare and the grilled romaine salad were a great way to start with the Halibut and Steak entrees maybe being some of the best dishes we've ever had! Done absolutely perfectly! And save room for dessert as the buttermilk poundcake and goose egg flan were a perfect way to finish off. Thanks to Chef Trevitt and our server Jason for helping to make this a perfect Mothers Day Dinner!
Delicious for both gluten free eaters and not.
I had several choices even though I am gluten intolerant. If you do not drink they also offer mocktails which was great. My husband had the lobster ravioli which he said was delicious. I enjoyed the polenta vegetable entrée and the custard dessert. My husband had the delicious rhubarb cobbler and some nice wines. I also enjoyed their asparagus soup; he had a salad. Overall it was a very nice dinner around 5 pm on Mother's day. Then we went to see a play.
Great food and drinks!

This was my second attempt at dining at Legume, the first shortly after they moved to Craig Street. I was not very impressed with my first dining experience although the service was excellent. Now, a year or so later, I thought I would try again. The service was again excellent, but my entree was fair at best, although the dandelion salad was excellent. I was disappointed with the roasted chicken which came highly recommended, it being small and slightly undercooked. I probably will not try Legume a third time.

Dinner was lovely. Four of us had the goat sausage with onion confit and pierogies and loved them. The fourth, a vegetarian was happy with an appetizer of pickled radishes and a salad with goat cheese and some beautiful sprouts. The wait staff were very attuned to our timing as we had to be out at a certain time for a concert. They timed appetizers and entrees accordingly. Very accommodating
Love this place
I'll keep this short: my absolute favorite place in Pittsburgh. I have never been disappointed - in fact, I always leave this place thinking about how awesome it is and wondering when I can come back.
Special meal with aging parents.
We took our folks, 89 and 85 years old, out for a special meal, and they made it very special. We started with the pickle plate, which was delightful, mom especially liked the pickled cherry. I had a nettle soup that was very tasty, and both the folks had the halibut, and they ate every bite (most unusual). The truffle cake was so delicious, with a texture that is completey unique. Dad had the baked Alaska, and again ate every bite. Nice to see them enjoy food.

Very pleasant from arrival to departure - comfortable pace for leisurely evening
Out of good menu items; very slow
After discovering that our food choices were not available, the food we did order took almost an hour to reach our table - and then only after we complained.

The food was spectacular, service impressive and the ambiance delightful. These folks love what they do and it's reflected in everything they do. Definitely worth a visit
Nice find in Oakland.
Elegant restaurant with limited menu. The rib steak was tasty, but not cooked to perfection. The ravioli was to die for. Service was exceptional, attentive but not overwhelming. Would eat here again even though I thought it was a small menu.

Overall Great Experieince
Three of us ordered different entrees to mix and match. The thick cut pork chop and the Sirloin steak both were excellent tasting and nice sized. The ravioli option was relatively small and expensive for the portion received. Meat options were large enough to share so all were happy.

Dinner at Legume was wonderful as always. Loved the nettle soup - such a unique option that exceeded expectations. And I can't put into words how delicious dessert was. Thanks for a fabulous evening, Legume!
perfect for celebration or a casual festivity
We shared beef tartare and pickles, delicious. For entrees: 2 porkchops, satisfying and mouthful. I've been coming to Legume since they were in a small storefront in Regent Square. They're more expensive now, but also far more glamorous. Menu is bigger, food still excellent, maybe better.
great as usual
Love Legume for the rotating local food items, always very delicious. The beef tartare was awesome. We had a group from work taking out an old friend & it was lovely!

My husband and I dined at legume a few days ago. We had a great experience. The service staff was on point. Our food was great. We will definitely dine here again!
Always enjoy Legume! Menu well conceived, food great. Wonderful evening.
Good food but nothing spectacular (too expensive)
The food in Legume is good but to my opinion overpriced and not excellent. The dishes that my girlfriend and I received looked nice and the taste was very good. However, I was a bit disappointed in the amount of vegetables and in the preparation of them. I ordered a steak - the steak was excellent - which is according to the menu accompanied by some vegetables and mash. Although the description of the menu is correct, the amount of vegetables you receive is almost negligible. I think that a restaurant with as name 'vegetables' should always serve a lot of perfectly cooked vegetables. My girlfriend ordered the vegetarian dish and the vegetables were perfectly cooked and tasteful but nothing special was done with them. The ambiance and atmosphere is good and their drinks and wines all are excellent.
Halibut -A signature item?
We heard about their wonderful dishes. I ordered the vegetarian meal and that was very nice. My husband ordered the Halibut which was dry and overcooked. We did not think that we would have to specify "please don't overcook the fish" when fish is a signature item. their was basically no additional side or sauce on the place. Very spartan.

Delicious meal. Our waiter was excellent- so knowledgeable about the food and preparation. Pickle platter was very interesting. Sausages were amazing- so tender! Chicken cooked under skillet was really tasty. Sorry we've never eaten here before! What a gem!
Cozy and upscale
Legume had a lovely ambiance, fancy while not being fussy. The layout of the restaurant meant it did get a bit noisy during main dinner hours. The breadbasket was delicious and still warm from the oven! I was slightly disappointed in the portion size of my lamb given its price, but the taste made up for it! It's clear they put a lot of effort into their menu to bring interesting dishes that are locally sourced and seasonally appropriate.
I have never had a bad meal at Legume!
The menu is adventurous; the wine list is excellent. Wonderful service. Even on Thursday night, Butterjoint was hopping, as well.
Lovely as always - service surpassed high hopes
We took my wife's Uncle out for dinner on his first trip to Pittsburgh. Our waitress made us feel instantly welcome and was superb at being lovely to our guest even though he was having difficulty choosing what he wanted to eat. Despite the restaurant being busy we wanted for nothing and the evening was a great success with him raving about the food to all of his friends and family for the next 24 hours! Job well done on every front!
Went here on recent visit to Pittsburgh when they were doing special Russian menu. Everything was great!
Really enjoyed the restaurant. The food was good, the service great and the drinks exceptional. The team running this place knows what it is doing.
The food was wonderful, especially the Russian Soup. The lamb was tender and near perfect. Service was great. Couldn't ask for better. My wife had the Chicken for the third time and as always was very pleased.
pros and cons
Novel menu; food is always delicious, but a bit pricey and noisy. Better for groups of 2-4 who are not expecting to have private or intimate conversations.

The food was excellent (drinks not as good as usual) - and the atmosphere was terrific as well.
Wonderful find in Oakland
Legume was a wonderful meal. The staff accommodated the late arrival of our guests, had a terrific wine recommendation and an imaginative menu...5 stars!
Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgable. We had a great evening.
Didn't ask if we wanted a second drink. Food cold had to send back . Desserts plain but good coffee hot best part of meal have had better meals (lamb) at les expensive restaurants, felt rushed did not expect that . Overall would emphatically not recommend for dinner ! Looked like bar crowd was enjoying themselves at least they probably got a good hamburger.
