    The service here is incredible. Everyone serving us was warm and friendly, which was nice on our fourth anniversary. The views are breath taking. The ambience is magnificent. The food unfortunately is awful though. Very awful. This is the worst food I have eaten in my life. I ordered a sweetpotato gnoccii, which was so caramalized, that it was actually sweeter than my dessert (it was literally covered in syrup and coated with thin slices of caramalized almonds). This was followed by a mediocre, cold creme brulee. I can't believe that such a nice restaurant could have such a chef! I think that if LeMonte gets a new chef that is good at cooking, they could become much busier and prominent in the Pittsburgh area. My fiance at a duck with was very sweet, and he was dissatisfied with the dish as well. When he asked his colleagues at UPMC what they thought of the restaurant, they all agreed that LeMonte has very friendly service with amazing views and ambience, but the food is lacking (and has been the weakness of the restaurant for a long time). Until there is a new chef, we will not be coming back. No one wants to pay $150 for food that is so strange that they could make a better meal at home.

    The food at our dinner was so dreadful that it was inedible. I have had far better food at a local diner. The food was also too salty and cold. The decor was tacky and the live performers in the bar were comical. The view is excellent, but there are better dining options with the same view. If you have relatives or business colleagues who are thinking of moving to Pittsburgh and you want to discourage the move, take them to Le Mont and tell them it has the best food in town. They wil be horrified. This restaurant needs a new menu, remodeling and a new chef. The service was good and the valet parking was convenient. We will never return.

    Our first dining experience at LeMont was Friday, 7 November 2014. My wife was in town for a conference and we decided to try the restaurant based on what others had told us. While nothing is easy to get to in Pittsburgh, a cab got us there quickly and at a reasonable expense. It was a nice dining experience and one should note the dress is higher than business casual. When all the waitstaff have tuxedos, you need to dress appropriately. The service was excellent, the food was mediocre. I expected much more from a restaurant as expensive as the LeMont. The view was spectacular and worth the visit. I highly recommend a visit.

    We ate at LeMont to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful night to see the city, the food was amazing and the service wonderful. LeMont is also where our daughter, nephew and cousin had their wedding receptions. They have no problem taking care of either 2 or 200 people. We will definitely go back, and have told others about how good it was also.

    Memories of great dining experiences at LeMont go back many, many years to the 1970's even before 1997 when were engaged and a few months later married there. LeMont has always been a special place. The view is unmatched and the staff is first class. Our favorite is the Caesar salad which is the best we have had anywhere and we travel extensively. We are also very fond of the Chateaubriand or the Steak Diane although at our most recent dining experience there we ordered salmon and grouper dishes respectively which were both very good. Thanks to Michael, our waiter, whose friendly attention did much to make it yet another memorable experience.

    The interior and the view are spectacular! The valet service made parking a breeze at a most reasonable price. Our waitstaff were attentive, knowledgeable, and very concerned that we were enjoying our evening. Our appetizers (pumpkin ravioli and calamari) were delicious and special, as was our dessert- crepes Suzette's- prepared with skill at table side. Entrees were tasty and beautifully presented. We were celebrating an occasion and happy we did it here!

    I wanted to do something very special for my lovely girlfriend Sunday night and a friend of mine recommended LeMont for our night out. We drove an hour and ten minutes to get there and I was blown away by the decor on our way in. Also the service was very splendid and the food very good. Overall, we were both left with a night to remember and a view of Pittsburgh's skyline we will never forget.

    This was my second time at Le Mont, and I just love this restaurant. Two years ago we stumbled in to this place during the afternoon and asked to place a reservation for 9 and to have a window table. They accommodated with such attention. I knew we were visiting again and jumped on Open table to make a reservation as I did not want to miss another great meal. They once again preformed with fling stars. The view is stunning as well as the decorations. The food is exquisite, presentation is perfect. Oh and be sure to leave room for dessert.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
