We had a special evening celebrating our 30th Anniversary at Pittsburgh's most romantic restaurant with the iconic views - Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. They very kindly served us dessert "on-the-house" and that made our celebration even that more wonderful.
Thanks to an excellent wait-staff, always welcoming service and an imaginative menu, we have only good things to say about Monterey Bay.

Outstanding crab cakes. We went for crab cakes. We had crab cskes. Loved them. Service during Covid times was good. Good separation from other diners. Personalized hand sanitizer bottles for everyone. All servers were masked. Saw someone wiping down common areas.

I realize it’s a seafood restaurant, but I have had a better filet at Outback, was dry and not tasty
Au Gratin potatoes were terrible, hardly any cheese
Paying for the view
Service was great

First time back since returning to the Pittsburgh area after 15-years on the East Coast. Entertained out-of-town guests and we were all delighted. Food quality was excellent as was the service. The view - that goes without saying.
We'll visit again to be sure!

James did an excellent job as our server and respected the fact that we were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. He was attentive but allowed us plenty of time to ourselves. His recommendations from food to wine were superb. He helped celebrate together and made the evening extremely enjoyable
Food, atmosphere and hospitality was awesome

My husband and I took our daughter here for her 18th birthday at the same time visiting our daughter who goes to University of Pittsburgh (also there with our 3rd daughter), trying to make their night (and ours) as special as possible considering all of the disappointments due to the pandemic. Monterey didn't disappoint! We had an amazing time! The views are spectacular and the food was absolutely delicious! They also gave our daughter a complimentary birthday dessert with a sparkler and it topped the night! Highly recommend for any special occasion!

Service was to rate but the menu options were sub par for the prices. My wife wanted lobster but the only lobster they had had some sort of cheese on it completely changing the way she expected lobster to taste. I had surf and turf and the filet was good but not mouth watering like some places are. The lobster I had was good but also had some topping on it that was just okay. It was also a 4 oz portion that seemed smaller than that.
The waitress was the best part of our experience.

Our party of 4 chose to celebrate the completion of our GAP bike trip at Monterey Bay based on the enthusiastic recommendation of locals that we met along the way. We could not have been more impressed, particularly with the service of the General Manager, John. When we experienced an issue with the preparation of one of our entree selections, John responded immediately by having the entree redone by the head chef himself. In addition, he offered complimentary soup so that others in our party could enjoy their entrees while we waited for our remade entrees to come. When our dishes arrived, John provided new shareable sides as well so we all enjoyed hot and DELICIOUS meals. Desserts were complimentary as well and were equally OUTSTANDING. This was a memorable evening made even better by John’s care and attention to every aspect of our dining experience!

Server was outstanding!! Recommended some really good choices! Knew the food!! So important! The music selection matched the dining experience. I hate music that has no business being part of dinner. The view is spectacular and it was daylight can only imagine what it looks like at night. Highly recommend the Sneaky Tiki!
