    The view can not be surpassed and I thought I would be giving up a food star for the view but I did not at all. The choices were wonderful. They scallops were cooked to perfection. The wine list was lovely. The service was wonderful. The only dissapointment was the latte. Skip this... No foam. Everything else was fabulous. I would absolutely come back.

    I grew up in Pittsburgh and remember the LeMont from the late 60's and 70's (as a place too expensive for my family to eat at.) We were in town for a day of tourism and took the Duguesne Incline up Mt Washington and walked a block to the LeMont, that's a nice way to visit. It was a quiet Thursday night (the Steelers were playing Baltimore and it was a little overcast.) Service was very good - friendly, prompt and attentive. They had a reasonable wine list, and some nice choices by the glass. I had a special of filet mignon tournadoes and it was well prepared. My spouse had a pork chop special but didn't care for it for lack of any particular flavor. Without the view wouldn't be good value, but its a fantastic view.

    LeMont is a Pittsburgh treasure - outstanding food, service and a view that takes your breath away! It is my favorite place to take folks visiting from out of town, and one of the best ways to experience what makes this city so special. The chateaubriand is incredible, and I love the bananas foster prepared at your table. The servers are gracious, professional, and really know how to make your evening out an unforgettable experience. Great place.

    Great dining experience with an incredible view of the Pittsburgh area. Unfortunately it was ruined in the last 10-minutes of our dining experience. We had an amazing and expensive dinner, plus even had time to discuss a little business as we looked out the scenic windows, but apparently our "window table" was needed!! We were basically told "your table is needed for another party and you have to leave"!! Unreal..! So if you go on Saturday and eat early -- remember to EAT FAST!! BTW - When we were exiting the front door, there was no one waiting in the lobby!!

    For a group of friends visiting from out of state, LeMont was a very unique place for dinner. The food was outstanding, the wine was superb, the music was fantastic, and the entire atmosphere with the beautiful view and lovely music was a perfect place to get together and have enjoyable conversations with good friends. The atmosphere was very friendly and helpful for the most part. The table service could have been slightly more attentive in our opinion. The six of us really loved the experience overall and definitely would try to come back if we were visiting Pittsburgh again.

    We went to the LeMont for our daughter's 30th Birthday. We had a lovely time. Our server, Brandon, was very attentive and made our experience great. The noise was a little high at times since we were near the bar ,and a few of the people at the bar, were a little loud. We definitely would recommend and go back, since this was just a few moments.

    We had a remarkable 44th wedding anniversary at LeMont. Located at the top of the Duquesne Incline. The entire ride up and view of Pittsburgh on a clear summer evening was wonderful. Great service and personal attention from Guy and Scott. Live music appropriate to the experience and of course the opulent decor. Excellent steaks and table side Caesar salads. They called for a car service after dinner that inexpensively returned us to our downtown hotel.

We sat there until 9:10 until we were finally seated. Our server, Marco, was awesome and everything was amazing once we actually got to our table.

    This was my first visit @ the Le Mont. I had a reservation for 830 and we didn't get seated till approx 9 which was fine because they gave me a window seat as I requested. The restaurant is very classy with good energy. The views of the city are outstanding. A great wine list and the food was excellent. They had live music that night which was great and our waiter was happy to take multiple photos of us. Overall a great dining experience with excellent food and service. I highly recommend.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    The food was good, but not quite good enough to justify the high-end pricing. The decor and service were suitable for a high-end restaurant, but both are rather faded and care-worn. It brings to mind something that's been trapped in time and slowly decaying. In the end, it's all about the view from the huge windows that overlook the city. If you want to celebrate a special occasion, you could do worse, but gourmands should look elsewhere.

    From the sincerely friendly greeting from valet to the chat on the way out with Lois, our experience at Le Mont was wonderful. The restaurant is decadently decorated with beautiful chandeliers. The view from high on Grandview Avenue and overlooking downtown Pittsburgh is spectacular. The French onion soup and table side-made Caesar salad were delicious. My husband had Romano chicken and said he thought it was the most tender chicken he's had. I chose the filet and was surprised at what a large cut arrived. It was fantastic! We didn't have room for dessert, but the dessert cart and the flaming table side desserts being made were fun to watch.

    I booked this table far in advance for my engagement dinner. I also called the restaurant three times in advance to make sure they knew it was our engagement dinner and that we would like a table near the window. We were a little shocked when we showed up, they had no idea it was our engagement dinner and we were not given a table near the window. In fact, our table was in the middle of a crowded aisle. I spoke to the Maitre de about the table and he told me a table would not open up near the window for an hour and half. Of course, five minutes after we sat down two tables near the window opened up. This is the reason why I rated the LeMont so poorly. Otherwise, the food was great and our servers were excellent.

    We went to LeMont for our anniversary, and it was very nice. The view was spectacular! The wine was okay, if they had a wine list, we weren't offered it. The French onion soup was delicious, the salad was nothing special, and the entrée was good. We eat out a lot and prefer "comfortable fancy"to "stuffy fancy". But it was a very nice experience.

    Amazing service, they made sure we had a table by the window since it was our anniversary. Food was spectacular. I don't even like french onion soup and I ate half of my husbands' portion. Had the seasonal strawberry, watermelon, and feta salad which was amazing. Neptune's delight for dinner was awesome other than the dry mashed potatoes (didn't have room for them anyways.) Pricey, but worth it. Will go back for special occasions.

    This is truly a special place. A restaurant of this high level of class is rare. We hoped for top end dining, and it was wonderful to find our expectations were not only met but exceeded. The decor was elegant, the view magnificent and the staff comfortably welcoming, professional and attentive. I could not fault the cocktails (which is saying something). The meals were refreshingly innovative and of the highest quality. I was impressed with my chilled three melon soup. My wife said her chicken with raspberry sauce was delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend LeMont for that special dining experience when you want a cut above the mundane.

    The food was unremarkable. I presume the hefty price is attributed to the fantastic view (the only high marks I give....that and the valet service was good). The waitress was unfamiliar with the menu and wines. Overall perhaps just average. I'll not go back. I can see the great view of the city from any of the overlooks on mt Washington.
