Beautiful restaurant and great service! Wonderful anniversary experience.
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.
Every single thing was perfect!❤️
We celebrated our engagement at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. They were super friendly to us, served amazing food (definitely get the dessert!), and had an incredible view of the city. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate or have a special evening. We will be back! Thanks for the experience!
The restaurant was beautiful with the tall glass window looking over the city. Our service was great also our food came out nicely. The crab cake was our favorite dish of all..
Valet parking. Excellent views. Spacious. Great staff. Delicious food.
Not a fan of the elevator during covid but no other choice.
It’s a quick ride.
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.
The best Crabcakes anywhere!
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
Great dinner - excellent food & atmosphere! Can't wait to go back!
Amazing food, great service, beautiful atmosphere and the views , just wonderful. Can’t wait to go back to Pittsburgh and visit this fantastic restaurant
We brought some guests who were visiting from out of town. Great food with large portions, amazing views, and wonderful service. A perfect spot to take guests looking for the best view of the city!
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!
Oustanding views, amazing food!
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.
$42 for a very small piece of Chilean Sea bass with chimichurri pulled over it...no sides or salad. it was good but just a really bad value.
The food was amazing, the wine was fantastic! The waiter was very respectful and nice. Would definitely recommend people to go!
Great place to celebrate my parent’s anniversary
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!
Great food but overpriced due to view. Food was very good. I just can’t justify the cost.
All around great experience. Food was delicious from appetizers to dessert. Drinks were delicious and service was wonderful, very attentive.
Food is like sex in your mouth.
Service is top notch.
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!
The view was amazing. It was my moms birthday and she had the absolute best time.
The Best in the Burgh.
The view of the city was as good as the food and the the desert was amazing.
Amazing views of the city and terrific service. We were her for our anniversary and we will be back again. Delicious food and you must try the angel food cake grilled cheese.
Wonderful experience again! Waitress was outstanding. Food was excellent.
Monterey Bay is always a favorite! We had a beautiful view of the city, delicious food and a personable, attentive waitress. Love coming back!
Fabulous dinner! Great staff and food!
Excellent COVID protocols, felt very comfortable. The spacing is good and the staff was very helpful.
Overall lived in Pittsburgh all my life; this was my first time there.. no doubt not my last! Prices was a little more than I would normally send but well worth it!!!!!
Excellent waiter, time of food served, and quality. Always our choice for big celebration.
Service was Freat Food was Horrible
The food Was divine and our server was phenomenal. The Angel food grilled cheese dessert ,was excellent!
Can’t beat the beautiful view of the city at night! Our meal was delicious, my husband loved his swordfish, recommended by our wonderful server. We’d absolutely come back next time we’re in Pittsburgh.
Fantastic service and a great way to celebrate a birthday!
We had a delicious meal. The crab cakes are still the best in town.
Great food and service, definitely recommend!
