I always thought this establishment is one of the premier restaurants in Pittsburgh. I haven't had the ability to go there for awhile but I will be visiting again soon. The menu is excellent, the service is great, the atmosphere and dining experience is by far second to none. Thank you Pittsburgh Steak Co.

This place is a mockery of a Steakhouse. I've been to plenty of places for steak and none of them register as bad as this one. I seriously spent $70 on appetizers, glass of wine, NY strip, and filet mignon. This place should be embarrassed to call themselves a ""steak house"". I've had much better steak at Outback. I'm not recommending Outback either. I'd try Pittsburgh Rare or some other restaurant featuring steak. The steak was bland, dry, and tough. The wine was lousy and so were the salads that came with it. Plain and simple the food sucked. People that rate this place high, obviously have never had a good steak. I make better steaks at home. Bottom line this place is vastly overrated, not worth the money, and I will never return.

went there for my mother's birthday, she's in from out of town and we wanted something nice. three of four dishes were good, one was completely spoiled and bad-smelling steak. they were also out of the bottle of wine we wanted to order. maybe they're cutting back to save money, but there's no excuse for serving perished steak. it was so bad my dad wouldn't take another or even look at steak after tasting it. then they charged him for his replacement pasta and the owner yelled at the wait staff in the back about how he wouldn't apologize because he didn't do anything wrong. the waitress was very nice, but we will never go back after seeing how awful the owner is. any other restaurant manager, and especially owner, would have at least not blamed the spoiled steak on the person it was served to.

My boss was in town and I made reservations for dinner at the Pittsburgh Steak Company. The first trick was to find parking within a 1 or 2 mile walk of the restaurant - not really their fault though, that's the Southside! When we walked into the restaurant, there were only 3 tables in use, yet they crammed us back into some cubby hole with practically no light. Once the 4 of us ordered our meals - all various steak dishes - and they arrived, we knew why there wasn't any light. The presentation was pitiful and the steaks were absolutely the worst that any of us had ever eaten. The meat was tough and over cooked. Fortunately for me, my boss is a very forgiving sort and he didn't blame me for the disaster. Still, I was extremely embarrassed and will never go there again, nor recommend it to anyone that I want to remain friendly with.

As a waitress, I can understand how stressful a restaurant atmosphere can get sometimes. But I was completely disappointed when my fiance, his parents and myself went out and were disregarded by the manager himself upon entering the restaurant. I can't even write a review on the food, because we promptly left and went to a smaller, less fancy restaurant where the service was amazing, and surprisingly so was the food!

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and have never been to the South Side restaurants. The service was excellent, food was incredible (steak and stuffed shrimp), staff was very polite and prompt, not overly crowded. Mixed drinks were perfect and highly recommend this to any and everyone!

My boyfriend and I went there for dinner and I was very surprised by our terrific night. Although I have seen some bad reviews on this site we decided to try it anyways. We enjoyed ourselves greatly, the service was great and the food was even better. It was not as expensive as we expected and we can't wait to go back. Thanks everyone who made our night great.

We scheduled our company party here, we called ahead and reserved tables for the entire company. When we got there they said noone must had written down the reservations. So we had to eat upstairs, no bartender, no heat and terrible steaks. I sent my steak back four times and it still wasn't cooked right. My advice is to go somewhere that specializes in company affairs. Other complaints were grissle, undercooked, slow, very slow service. We never experienced the dark wood and dim lights. It was the worst company dinner we ever planned and will never go back!

My wife and I were looking to celebrate our anniversary and her passing her NBCT's and selected the Pittsburgh Steak Company. We chose this place as we both enjoy a good steak dinner and we wanted to have some drinks on Carson St afterwards. Well, we were disappointed. The french onion soup was very bland, the salad was plain and the steaks were OK at best. Nothing had that 'wow' factor and we felt that the value for the price just wasn't there.

The Pittsburgh Steak Company has long been present on Carson Street in South Side, but it surprises me how many Pittsburger's have never enjoyed the outstanding menu there. We have been treating ourselves to special dinners at the Pittsburgh Steak Company for well over 10 years and have never been unhappy with the food or the service there. Keep the over-priced ""chain"" restaurants, I'll happily meet you at the Pittsburgh Steak Company for the best meal you've ever had!

We ate here on a friday night at 6. We thought we would have a long wait and to our surprise..no wait at all. We were seated immediately and the waitress was immediately there. Very polite and friendly. The Steak salad was HUGE now I know why it says it's $1.50 to share. My husband got the steak. Said it was good. Not the best he had but still good. Beautiful wood and brick interior. NOT for kids and if you happen to have a ""steal a meal"" from the local stations, you have to spend more than the whole amount (which we didn't know and only spent $35 of $ 50) It's a little pricey.. steaks were from 22.95 and up but it's a nice place for couples to have a ""romantic"" evening and the service was wonderful. We were in and out in just under an hour.

This is a great place for a single diner. The bar is great. And at the bar you will get complimentary Chips. The chips alone are worth the trip. Very crisp and seasoned like no where else. What a place to watch Monday Night Football. The prime rib is an ""All you can Eat"" feature. The salads and rolls are unusually good. Steak of course is the main feature. You won't be disappointed. The ""Southside"" has numerous restaurants, this is certainly one worth your patronage.

My wife and I dine out very frequently, and visit many resturant locations in the Pittsburgh/ Mon Valley area's. We had visited the Pittsburgh Steak Company in recent past, and the atmosphere was just too busy, uncomfortable for our liking. The steak's that were served to us didn't stand out in quality/ flavor compared to other steak houses/ resturants, and had an above average amount of fat in them. They also weren't prepared as requested, and the meat was actually tough, rather than tender. The overall cost of the meal was pricey, considering the quality of steak served. Compared to other places that we have visited, we definately wouldn't recommend the Pittsburgh Steak Company to friends who would expect a comfortable dining atmosphere, along with a quality steak.
