great steaks, expensive, good service

I went to Pittsburgh Chop House, which replaced the Red Bull Inn, in February 2008. I made reservations online with "Open Table" directly from their website which was convenient. Plenty of onsite parking, although the entrance is not clearly marked -- you must enter at the hotel entrance adjacent to the restaurant. The interior has been completely revamped since the RBI days. The decor is now modern, clean, and simple. A nice waiting area with very comfy chairs is off to the left. Very nice area to sit down and wait for your dining companions. The main dining room is spacious, open, and bright. The tables are dressy, but still have a casual feel to them.

The menu is refreshingly small and can be viewed on their web site, although without pricing. Their steaks range from perhaps $24 to $36 dollars and include one side. Mixed game dinner was $38. They have various add-on's like special sauces, mushrooms, etc, which add another $4. They have a fresh fish dish, twin lobster tails, crab cakes, and a few other assorted seafood dishes.

This is a steakhouse, and the emphasis is obviously on the beef. My steak was cooked perfectly, very nicely seasoned, and had a pepper-rub applied. They sear the outside which makes the edges just ever so slightly firm. The steaks are pretty sizable, and I'm a big eater. At my table, the prime rib, strip, and filet all got thumbs up. The salads and sides, however, need an extra kick to fit in.

The service was pretty good, but needs to be another notch up at these prices. Our waitress was friendly, fairly knowledgeable, and courteous when interrupting. However, the service needs to be a little more professional. This isn't an outback steakhouse. It takes more than steaks and high prices to make a great chop house. The staff should visit Morton's or Ruth's Chris for a better idea of the type of service expected.

Overall, the restaurant was very good, and we're likely to become regular patrons there. The steaks are delicious, the ambiance is classy but not stuffy, and service good. We spent roughly $150 for two with salads, entrees, a few drinks, coffee, tax and tip.
