The views are worth the trip, and the food was good, too. They did overcook the asparagus, though, and the lamb was tasty even with a bit of a heavy gravy on it (who needs gravy on lamb?). Tom was a great waiter, and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

We enjoyed our time and experience at the LeMont. Great atmosphere and there was even a live band performing in the main dining room. Great views of the city, couldn’t have been better!

Once again a lovely dining experience with family over mothers day weekend. Great views of the city combined with an elegant dining experience made it a special evening. Service as usual was above and beyond.

Exceptional jazz duo topped off the night with light music and dancing.


Will return.

Tom, our waiter, is always the ultimate professional. Three of us enjoyed the “can’t beat the price” prix fixe seasonal menu. Veal was excellent. Pesto Trout was a treat. My scallops, smothered with a heavy coconut sauce and the side of coconut milk risotto - way too sweet for a dinner so I was disappointed. It was like eating candy. Usually have great food at LeMont and we go several times a year. It was my friend’s birthday so the evening was more about the ambiance and being together while looking at our beautiful city.
My friend was given a free piece of bday cake and the night was fine. Next time I’ll avoid the scallops.

Our reservations were for 730pm. We got there at 20 after 7. We did not get seated until after 8! We were told to go to the bar and wait. What’s the point of making reservations? Our waiter was a 10 out of 10. Very professional and friendly! Overall I’d give them a 7/10

This was our first time back at the LeMont in over 30 years. I had read some bad reviews and had shied away. Our experience was outstanding this time. The bar area is beautiful and bartenders are friendly. We were seated at a window, but really, all seats have a great view, so being able to touch a window isn’t necessary. I ordered the stuffed sea bass and it was a real treat. My wife had the veal scallopini with chanterelle mushrooms and it was amazing. The veal was fork tender and the sauce was rich and flavorful. We’ll definitely put the LeMont back in our mix of restaurants.

Service was scripted. Wine steward was not in a good mood. It seemed they were complaining about one thing or another.
We were celebrating our 35th anniversary. I was hoping to be seated in the main dining room

Food was not good. Much better places near by. The view was amazing, but wasn’t enough to make up for the food experience. To bad, we were there for a special occasion and was looking forward to an amazing meal.

Outside of the Beautiful view, and our waitress being pretty good, we would not recommend this restaurant. It's as if they are trying" to be an upscale restaurant, yet lacking professionalism and good food.

As always the service was outstanding. We had friends in from Boston and we wanted to showcase the City of Pittsburgh from a different perspective than they had seen. The Lemont is always a solid and consistent place to dine, while accomplishing that objective. And it was a picture perfect evening.

The view was spectacular. Both the food and the service were mediocre. The cranberry salad served with the winter menu was inedible by all three of us at the table. The main courses were ok. The menu is so uninspired and demands either a new chef or a complete overhaul. I think both is Lemont wants to keep its doors opens. There were many open seats on a beautiful Friday evening and I can see why. None of us would go back as there are way too many excellent restaurants in the Pittsburgh dining scene.

We ordered from the “Taste 30” menu. The promotional all-inclusive selections were great quality and were not inferior to the regular menu. Scallops were fresh and properly sautéed. Veal was average, but the fresh salad and complete deserts were exceptional. As we have found in past visits, the service was exceptional. The beautiful view and traditional elegant style of the dining room make a relaxing and pleasant dining experience.

LeMont is one of those places you don't visit very often, but it is always a pleasant treat when you do. It is expensive, but not extremely so compared to a lot of other steak houses and premium restaurants. It is quite traditional in its menu offerings and formal service, but I like that.
Here is where they prepare Caesar salad tableside, and it is wonderful. Steaks and veal dominate the menu, but I had the wonderful jumbo lump crabcakes. The dessert cart of huge decadent cakes is a sight to behold, and the view of Pittsburgh is just a bonus! Drop in if it has been a while or be sure to make a first visit.

The food was excellent. It was restaurant week and they had a separate menu if desired. The choices were above and beyond. You can’t beat the ambience.
We enjoying going there anytime.
Tony was able to arrange a table near the window. We had our teen age grandchildren with us and they enjoyed it. We felt that was an accomplishment being with teens

The view is the ONLY reason to go to this OVER-RATED restaurant! The food was only ok, and the service was horrible! It was our 30th wedding anniversary, and they ruined it! We were asked to leave our table before we were done saying they, “had another guest waiting on the table”, we had only been there 1.5 hours! Additionally there were empty tables available! Ridiculous!!!!!!!!
Horrible place with horrible service and they DO NOT CARE about the customers! I will NEVER give this restaurant another dollar of my hard earned money.

PICK ANOTHER RESTAURANT IN PITTSBURGH, there are many!

Excellent service from start to finish. The waitress was on point with the specials and we were the first customers of the evening. The food was exquisite. Served at the perfect temperature. The only complaint was the Lobster Bisque had no trace of lobster it was all broth. We both got bisque and it was the same for both of us. However the rest of the food was 2nd to none. The desert was perfect. Overall experience was tremendous.

Pleasantly surprised at food quality - greatly improved over last visit quite a while ago. Glad we came back. We had a table by the window- a win for us. Good service. Arrived early - 45 minutes before reservation and was accommodated and still with a window seat. Earned points for good customer service. We will be back.
