You will want to return!!! – Superb seafood & sushi!!!
I am in town for a month for business, and I not staying at the Westin but I have made the trip over to eat here 4 times, each time ordering different items.
The sushi is the freshest I have ever had, try the Sea Bass!
They have a wide selection of oysters that make a great appetizer.
The wine list is very large and the waiters make great suggestions, even letting you sample one if you are having a tough time deciding.
You will want to return!
best seafood in the burgh – my experience was wonderful!!!! Service was great food was great. 10+++ to the chef. We had the chef's tasting. He came out and asked what we liked and didn't liked and prepared excellent choices on each course. Huge wine selection to choose from but didn't have to worry because our server made a great selection that complimented our meal. o top it off being that we spent over $50.00 our parking was free.
DISAPPOINTING First visit to the Fish Market – This was our first time to Pittsburgh, and tried the restaurant at the recommendation of a brochure about Pittsburgh in our hotel (not the same hotel it is located in). Our service started off great, then declined dramatically during dinner. The appetizer and soup were horrible, we didnt even finish them. The tastes of our fish is something we could have gotten anywhere, for much less cost. We had to ask for bread with our meals, never to recieve it or even have the server appologize for forgetting. We went the last half of our meal without any more wine or water, having to eventually grab one of the other servers passing by. We would not revisit, nor recommend this restaurant.
Overpriced but good sushi – I've gone to the Fish Market three times in the last two years, each time either before or after a performance at the Benedum. I thought the service left a lot to be desired (long wait, spotty service at best) and while the food was good, it was overpriced. I enjoyed the sushi selection - the chef should be commended. Overall, if you're going to cocktails and an appetizer, this is a good restaurant to check out. Otherwise, the seafood was on par with Red Lobster.
Mrs Pauls does it better – We travel to Pittsburgh often. We wre lookng for a "casual dress " restaurant. The "Original fish Market" was recommended. The atmosphere was less than the "casual business dress"we were told to adhere to when we made reservations. The wine list was incredible, 150% more if purchased in a wine store. But the worst was that the entree's were unbelievably poor. Our main courses were on the par of something that I would buy frozen at a wholesale grocery store. The prices were high and the atmosphere was poor. Just to let the management know , tablecloths are nice, paper or cloth, when you are harging inflated prices. The service was professional but inpersonal, which is not a big deal when the food is good-obviousely I thought it wasn't. I have only one other comment, if anyone suggests this restaurant for dinner-be afraid, be very afraid.
Average, overpriced seafood. – Tried this place once while waiting for a train. Was pretty underwhelmed given the hefty price ($50 for one drink, one appetizer, and a basic grilled fish.) The oyster sampler plate was nice, and the fish was fine but I've had a lot more interesting preparations for the price tag. Entrees come with NO sides or vegetables unless you're willing to spend extra. Spotty service--my entree was brought within minutes of having just brought me my appetizer, no apology or offer to bright it back when I was finished (instead I was asked if I was done with my oysters, when I'd barely eaten half of them!) Then no one wanted to clear my oyster plate once I *was* finished.
Not likely to return.
This seafood haven in the Westin Convention Center has earned fans for its fresh catch and funky visuals. – The Scene
The decor of the Pittsburgh Fish Market is a mix of hotel lobby gewgaw and loony lagoon kitsch. The hotel part is easy to explain, as the restaurant is located in the downtown Westin. But the giant, effulgent hemispheres protruding from the ceiling are definite head-scratchers.
The restaurant prints a different menu daily, as entrees are dependent on the catches of the day. A lot of people gauge a seafood joint's worth by its crab cakes, and the three small medallions presented here are tasty enough--if overpriced. The lobster meat-stuffed trout is scant on its shellfish component; sauteed Yukon golden potatoes are practically raw. But the desserts are exquisite, especially a generously portioned raspberry and Kahlua tiramisu. In addition, all the food is beautifully presented. Perhaps the chef's artistic bent is more visual than culinary.
Great Food, Great Atmosphere! – What a pleasant surprise for a hotel restaurant. The food was original and well prepared. Service was excellent and dessert was incredible. Will definitely be back.
Solid Lunch – We were staying in the hotel where this restaurant is located. The management suggested we try it - no need to leave the premises for a good lunch he advised - he's right. We enjoyed drinks and a solid fish lunch at PFM - we samples sushi as well as cooked items. The prices seemed OK for the quality delivered, and the service was pretty good also. The drinks from the bar were fairly potent as well, which helped the afternoon (and evening) flow by. Even dessert was acceptable - a bonus. We recommend readers try this place at least once.
