Great food and service. Wonderful view of the city.
The venue was beautiful - so great to be able to be out again with family!!! Cindy was a wonderful and provided wonderful service and humor!!!
The food and service were excellent. It had been awhile since my wife and I had been there and it was just as good as we remembered. A great place for a special occasion!
Amazing view with great service and outstanding food
A perfect dinner experience to celebrate Dad. The view is amazing but our drinks and food were excellent too. Our server, Anne, made the whole experience wonderful. We will definitely return in the future.
Excellent！ Waitress is so kind!
Visited from out of state and had an amazing experience at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. We had a table right by the window for an amazing view. The service and food were equally good. Highly recommend!
The food and atmosphere were phenomenal, but our biggest takeaway was how great our waiter, Brent, along with the rest of the staff were. All very kind and pleasant to us.
The atmosphere wonderful. The view was impeccable. And the spicy calamari was the best I've ever had. And I don't eat it but tasted sooo good, fresh, and nowhere near gummy. Definitely going back soon.
Fantastic service, Joe was our server, attentive yet patient.
As always food and view was spectacular.
A great experience.
We had a great time. It was my fiancé’s birthday. They put a special message on his free dessert. Our waitress was lovely. Definitely recommend Monterey Bay!
Beautiful, elegant atmosphere. Perfect view of Pittsburgh. Food is always exceptional (especially the crab cakes). Service is phenomenal. Family favorite for years.
Great food! Beautiful view! Excellent service! The Angel’s fruit cake grilled cheese sandwich dessert is a must try !
We had a wonderful meal. The service was excellent too.
Absolutely awesome and delightful. A definite perfect setting for every occasion. Our meal was delicious and the staff take that above and beyond approach, which only adds to the ultimate dining experience!
Friends recently dined there and were very complementary. My friend and I were very impressed With Anna our server: she went to the bartender to have him make us a special drink. All the food was great and the ambience was wonderful. We were not able to celebrate our birthdays due to the pandemic and she made sure we had special desserts to do that
21st birthday!! Requested window but didn’t get it. Waiter was excellent
The view from a window seat makes this an extra special venue. Add excellent food and attentive service and you have all the elements for a spectacular dining experience.
We went a little early to have a cocktail in the bar area. It’s a very nice, spacious area with floor to ceiling windows. Dinner was fabulous! The crab cakes are a must have!
One of our favorite places in Pittsburgh to celebrate. Has one of the best views of the city, even better at night (we were there a little earlier for this dinner)
Service was great! Gave us lots of information and was super friendly. The food was amazing!
We had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary.
The Valet process was very poor. There were not enough valet's to handle the traffic of cars coming and going.
Great dinner and atmosphere. The view was spectacular.
Excellent from beginning to end!
Our food was amazing. The seafood was done to perfection and the roasted carrots may have been the best part. Our waitress was amazing.
Expensive but well worth it especially if you get a table near a window for the view of the city. Service was top notch, food was excellent.
The food was delicious! The service was outstanding and John, the General Manager was very accommodating. The view of the city is spectacular! Definitely recommend this restaurant.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Food quality was excellent
The restaurant is beautiful and the views are spectacular. Service was outstanding. The food was very good. We’ve been to some outstanding seafood restaurants and I can’t say this was top of the barrel but the food was solid and the overall experience was excellent.
We felt rushed initially. We waited for a window table and was told that it would be 20-25 minute wait so we went to the bar for a drink. We got our drinks and 5 minutes later our table was ready. We had three different employee remind us that our table was ready.
Also, our server asked one of the people in our party to cut into his steak after it arrived to make sure it was done the way he wanted it. We all felt that that was a strange request.
Overall, we had an enjoyable evening with a great view and delicious food!
I believe they have the best fish in the Pittsburgh area, and it helps to take somebody that's never been to Pittsburgh.
very good experience.
Our server was excellent as well.
will come back soon.
Monterey Bay used to be the place to go - now it is just old and complacent. I was saddened by the mediocre service as well. Menu lacks creativity and execution is basic at best.
This was our only night in Pittsburgh and now we don't have a good view of your city. I made our reservations 6 weeks out on the chance things would be open post Covid and that worked out. Confirmed the reservation by phone and text. Got dressed up, on a vacation no less, husband did the same! We were 10 minutes late due to undisclosed road closures, but we called to let them know, called again to let them know we were in their long valet parking line! Got in at about 12 mins past reservation to be told everything was late, there was no seating in the bar, we would just have to stand there! We saw other people get escorted down to the bar then we got showed down. The manager or head host came by and got our names then fawned all over the couple next to us, told them he was comping their drinks, and their window table was ready. They said they didn't really need a window table, but they got the best in the house (saw them later). I asked for a window table but that would have been an even longer wait. We were seated for a 7pm reservation at 7.55. No view of the city even though there were other tables that remained unoccupied the entire time we were there, that had views even if not by the window. We were not offered those tables. Our waitress was excellent, the food was good, but we were not treated with the same respect we gave to the restaurant. If you are in town, go up for a drink in the bar, get pictures, then go to The Grand Concourse, better food!
Service was top notch, food was fast and delicious.
Perfect place for a celebration.
Every course was outstanding. Our waiter, Ian was attentive and his recommendations spot on. My wife and I really enjoyed the experience.
Really enjoyed this restaurant! Views are amazing and the dining experience is exceptional.
