Great Spot – Bikki offered fantastic food. I used to live in New England, and their lobster bisque rivaled that of some of the best seafood places in Boston.
The late in the evening changover is a lounge that is perfect to just chat with friends. Large couches and a cozy fireplace make for a great atmosphere. There's dancing if you venture over to that side, but you can still hear each other talk.
Very upscale. Just a really great place to meet with friends for drinks, or make new ones!
Tucked away on a side street, this trendy eatery serves Indo-French food to a mod crowd. – In Short
Patrons clad primarily in black seem well suited to the stripped down aesthetic that informs the decor. In a dining room seating 50, wood chairs with natural finish surround tables lit by etched-glass candleholders. A sprinkling of white Christmas lights and colorful geometric paintings lend a little flavor to the otherwise unspoiled concrete walls in muted tones. The cuisine is Euro-fusion (French fare prepared with Indian spices) and best sampled through a mix of tapas.
A Little Hype Goes a Long Way. – Bikki, Bikki, Bikki .... almost a household word in Pgh these days. I admit to trying this place just to impress all of my stay-at-home-Mom friends.
Food was delicious...still dreaming of the fois gras.
Service was very disappointing. Young waitress argued about whether they would validate my parking ticket for the Shadyside garage (she must not have read the thousand reviews that boast this customer friendly perc). Ugh! She was also not well versed in the night's offerings and seemed to be guessing at the answers to our menu questions. Subsequent visit hooked us up with a friendly, but equally clueless waiter. He opted for the run-back-to-the-kitchen-20-times-and-ask-the-chef instead of his predessors guessing routine. Oh well- food was exceptional with creative presentations. Will be back for more. Warning- $6 corkage fee.....
Hopefully they'll get the wait staff to do some homework and things will get better.
