All food was outstanding. Staff was amazing. View was awesome! Will make this our anniversary spot every year.
Great fish and unusual preparations!
First, the room is lovely. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and the food was outstanding.
Our waitress was top notch with her service and explanation of the menu
The lobster tail stuffed with crab was outstanding. My husband loved the filet with a crabcake. Even though the crabmeat was from Indonesia, which is a disappointment, it was still tasty. Not sure why Pittsburgh restauarants in general do not insist on Maryland crabmeat which is superior. Notwithstanding, Monterey Bay is a great choice.
We selected this restaurant for 33rd anniversary. Boy did we make the right choice! This place was fabulous. Food, service, ambiance, view of Pittsburgh skyline and rivers… Everything was perfect or near perfect.
Excellent food and we appreciated being greeted by pleasant, friendly people. We loved it but the only negative thing was the waitress. Not friendly or patient with the fact that I can’t eat certain food after having major surgery and was not good at trying to accommodate me. I will however return. Also we loved the music!!!
The view is spectacular. The crab cakes were so good. We will definitely be back.
Great views. Nice seasonsal menu. Good, friendly service. Loved the desserts!
Love everything there!!! Great food, the view, the staff !! Worth the drive!!!! ( 2h)
Great menu offerings and seafood. Most impressive view in Pittsburgh. Service was good. Only issue was the butter was hard, right from the fridge and that is a pet peeve of mine for restaurants. Shouldn't have to struggle to butter your bread. Minor issue, at best. Highly recommend this restaurant as I have been there several times
Wonderful view, the staff was incredible. My husband and I went on our honeymoon and were treated like royalty!
My boyfriend really enjoyed his birthday dinner. They food was delicious, and our waitress was really nice.
I haven't been to Monterrey Bay in several years, but the meal did not disappoint. The meal was served hot and delicious by a very knowledgeable server who attended to our every need. We will be back soon@
Recommend a 4 PM reservation to get a good table. Our first table was pantry view, but we were moved.
We will stick with Morton's, Back Porch and Wooden Angel.
Outstanding as usual. The staff is excellent!
I visit family in Pittsburgh a few times a year. Each visit includes dinner at The Fish Grotto. The food is always excellent, as is the service.
Always a unique combination of incredible view and excellent food with amazing service.
We went to this restaurant because of it's reputation for good food and great view. Valet parking on arrival was uneventful. We were seated by a window and the view did not disappoint. The server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The menu offered many seafood options and several others. The sashimi grade tuna was excellent. The sea bass with chimichurri was good but not quite up to the standards of the restaurant. The vegetable of the day, slow roasted carrots, was outstanding. A special dessert called a grilled cheese was a toasted sandwich of cream cheese between two thin slices of angel food cake. Delicious. One of the best parts was the very tolerable noise level making it possible to converse at normal volume. How rare these days! I will definitely be back.
Truly a great place for a really good meal and night out. The entire staff is very attentive and helpful and the food is just simply the best. Will return again and again.
My husband and I went to Monterey Bay for our anniversary. We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant the food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Though it is a bit pricey it is well worth the money.
We were celebrating some big milestones, in 72 hours we were getting married and buying our first home. We opted for a special date and it didn’t disappoint. Our server was excellent. Even the DRAs were fabulous with water service and plate clearing. The dishes were excuted beautifully. And the view really was spectacular.
It was a lovely evening and my cake was cut beautifully!
My wife and I went for a nice night out - as always it was very good. The food has always been top notch and we typically go for one of the specials which we did this time as well. My wife loved her salmon and I enjoyed my filet with red wine.
Fabulous meal, fabulous service!
Great service, great food. Lovely view, great choices
Food was very good, my dish (BRANDIED SHRIMP TAGLIATELLE) was amazing, however my husband had the CHILEAN SEA BASS, he said it tasted fantastic but was luke warm, not hot, and the oysters on a half shell were very small for the price, really not worth getting he said. We also had the CRISPY CALAMARI, cooked to perfection. He also had the asparagus, which was cooked perfectly also. The drinks were delicious, I had wine he had bourbon (Manhattans). Our server Anthony was the best, very young kid but was very attentive and made our dinner very nice. For dessert, and I would highly recommend this, my husband and I shared Angel Food Grilled Cheese Sandwich caramelized angel food cake, filled with cream cheese, served with berry compote and vanilla bean ice cream, topped with toasted sweet & salty almonds, OMG to die for. Best dessert I ever had. We then proceeded to the bar to end the night and the view and the ambiance was terrific, had the best time. The staff at Monterey was so nice, every last one of them. Would definitely visit there again.
The food was excellent but the service was top notch and probably the best we have experienced.
Sat downstairs to get a window seat and had a great view of city. Interesting dishes. Friendly server.
My husband and I had a wonderful meal from the Chef's specialty menu. He had the lobster risotto and I had the blackened shrimp and scallops over cheddar grits. Bothe were beautifully prepared and delicious.
Our waiter Mark was knowledgeable and professional.
We had a good time--good food and a beautiful view!!
It was absolutely an incredible dining experience. I highly recommend going. The food was excellent and this restaurant has the best view of Pittsburgh!
Our experience was excellent from the moment we entered. We were early for our reservation, but they were still able to get us a window seat. Service was fast and everyone was very accommodation to our wants.
Always great! We enjoy the food quality, service quality and the best view in the ‘burg!
The view was beautiful and the food was delicious. Took my father to celebrate Father's day...a week late...due to illness. He enjoyed his Sea Bass and Mom enjoyed her crab cakes. I really liked my blackened grouper with horseradish/orange marmalade sauce.
The Monterey Bay is without question one of Pittsburgh’s best restaurants. The service is excellent and the view is spectacular! The food is excellent from the appetizer to the dessert. It’s the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or other special occasion. My wife and I celebrated her birthday and we were very pleased with everything.
An excellent choice for two fish lovers...the sole and the salmon were absolutely scrumptious. The bread was warm and the butter was seasoned...just as we like it. The complimentary signature dessert was appreciated and totally consumed, even though we did not need the extra calories.😍
Always a wonderful dining experience and our favorite restaurant for a special occasion, a dinner out with friends or a celebration with family.
Great food & service!! Booked a 930 reservation so we could enjoy the fireworks after the Pirates game.... one of our favorite restaurants for guests & special occasions
Awesome time! Loved the food and the service was top notch!
Stunning views of the three rivers and mountainside! We arrived at 8pm so we had a beautiful sunset and nightfall. Service was good but I think our waiter was new - he seemed nervous. Food overall was good, especially the butter for the bread and the Calamari! The Caeser salad had a bit too much cheese on it. I don't recall there being both shaved and ground parmesan cheese the last time I had it. The coconut rice was delicious as well as the salmon.
