Every time we come to Pittsburgh, Point Brugge Cafe is the one restaurant we MUST visit! Got there early in order to avoid a wait, but we still had to wait a few minutes. We had the warm goat cheese salad with asparagus and vinaigrette dressing. Then we had the mussels in the garlic cream sauce with the frites and... More

In Pittsburgh for a couple days & when I saw they offered carbonnade flamande I knew I needed to make this one of the dinner choices. So glad I did! Excellent service, beer selection, cozy environment, menu choices. We didn't have a reservation but were warmly greeted and promptly seated. Our meals were excellent. In addition to the carbonnade flamande... More

Don't even think about going there without trying the Prince Edward Island mussels prepared with the Red Curry sauce. Ate more French bread than I wanted to but couldn't let the sauce go to waste! Fries were yummy and seasonal Cobb salad was huge and overwhelmingly wonderful. No name cocktail was delish... Go early (like at 5 on a weeknight)... More

It has a very friendly atmosphere and the menu is very unique where you can't go wrong with any choice. From burger to clams you'll be quite surprised with the quality in a setting where you would love to simply... More

We are never disappointed at Point Brugge. The food is always excellent with great portion sizes where you do not feel too full, but very satisfied. The parking can be tricky since it is in a neighborhood with on-street parking. Service is fantastic and the atmosphere is not pertentious at all, very casual and relaxed.

Best meal I've had in the last year, and I've had lots of them. Casual, cool location, very nice staff. The food was killer good! If you like mussels these are the best ever. They serve them with salt seasoned fries ...Frites if you are so inclined. Mayo makes it authentic. The wine based cream broth with minced shallots and... More
