Staying at the Courtyard by Marriott in Shadyside, the front desk recommended the adjacent Café Sam for dining based on my request for a cozy restaurant, with an enticing menu, quality food and responsive service during a recent two day business trip to Pittsburgh. The restaurant delivered on every request and it was one of the friendliest places we had visited in some time. We are on the road about 80 days a year. The house wines were quality vintage; notably, they were most generous in the allocation of wine per glass. The meal was delicious, it was prepared with an attention to detail and then promptly served. We were compelled to dine there twice as the food and ambience were delightful. Café Sam has our seal of approval and we look forward to a return visit.
