Go for the view. Maybe visit for drinks. Food not that great.
The view is amazing, all of downtown Pittsburgh there for your viewing. The service was impeccable from start to finish. The food was well prepared with nice presentation, the grilled strawberry cheesecake sandwich dessert is the best dessert I have ever had!!!
Great place love it there. Food is incredible service was great
The evening was very relaxing, service was great, and food as good as always. Very enjoyable experience!
One of the best meals we’ve ever had in our emitter lives. My husband got crab cakes and scallops and I got the Parmesan Chilean sea bass. We got soup, salad, and Brussels sprouts and the angel food grilled cheese. Everything was AMAZING!!!!!
We had a lovely 11th Anniversary dinner! I highly recommend. From beginning to end it was a great experience. All the staff was very friendly.
Wonderful food and impeccable service. Also a spectacular view.
I have not been to Monterey Bay for probably over ten years. I moved quite a bit further away. I was excited to bring my husband and his family to Monterey Bay to experience as they are foodies as am I.
The entire evening was so spectacular. The service was beyond great. The management is so friendly and attentive. All 7 of our dinners were amazing. I have never heard my father- law rave about his food before!
It is pricey which I never mind paying if the dining experience is a 100 per cent positive experience. Monterey Bay does not disappoint! Still a food lovers dream. Thank you for making my birthday so special.
Well when you can't get a reservation at Altius, don't assume you will have a similar experience at Monterey Bay. The view is no better than Altius but sadly the food doesn't measure up to the view or the prices. The swordfish was the thinnest piece of swordfish I have ever seen served. The one vegetarian choice was caulifower steak which sounded good in the menu but was undercooked, underseasoned and barely warm. For $26. A hunk of undercooked caulifower. My husband's grouper with Ponchartrain sauce (which the waiter highly recommended) was so-so - not spicey, not interesting. The side dish of asparagus was also under cooked. I enjoy al-dente vegetables but these were too raw to be enjoyed. The room itself was lovely and the service was well executed. But skip this restaurant and save your money for food worth the prices.
Great Food, Great View! We plan to come back for a birthday or anniversary.
The service was outstanding, the view was exceptional, the food was tremendous. I tried very hard to find a flaw with this place and failed. Don't leave Pittsburgh until you experience this place. Their attention to detail was amazing.
The halibut was fabulous and was a huge serving. We enjoyed everything with the exception of the shrimp and scallop étouffée which my daughter ordered. It was served undercooked. John, the manager, came to our table and they offered to bring her something else. She didn't feel as though she could eat after this point but they took that entree off the bill and brought us a couple desserts free of charge so we were happy with how the situation was handled. I would definitely try it again.
Exceptional experience! From the moment we arrived, until we left, we were treated as very special guests and felt that we were the only ones in the restaurant - which - of course we weren’t! Busy weekend in Pittsburgh made for a very busy weekend at Monterey Bay - but you would never know it. Service was beyond great, food was oh, so delicious - just a wonderful, memorable experience with a most excellent view!
Everything was perfect and the manager was so kind to the children in our family . Thank you for everything .
Well prepared food. Excellent service. Unmatched ambiance.
Food was delicious and ambiance was amazing and staff was very nice and friendly.. Really like the place.
Sides not as tasteful as in the past. Entrees were great.
Very special restaurant!
The food was not hot as if it was heated in the microwave. I’ve eaten here in the past & it I’ve had the same issue with the food temperature. The service is excellent!
Nice view, nice atmosphere, good waiter, friendly staff, will definitely return.
We had a lovely Mother’s Day!
My wife and I were a little disappointed in the Lobster Dux. The claws were tiny with very little meat for the price of the dish. The rest of the meal and service were great.
Great seafood beautiful view
This is perhaps my favorite restaurant in the world. Great food, terrific service, world-class view. Never disappoints.
Never disappoints...great food...great service...quiet atmosphere...excellent crab bisque soup and the expresso martini was a great way to top off the meal.
Everything about our experience was wonderful. The view is incredie, the food is outstanding, and the service is professional. The only complaint I have is regarding the portion sizes. If you are going to get a fresh fish entree, I would recommend ordering an accompaniment. Other than that, everything was perfect.
Our service was amazing - Angie is great! The view was also beautiful. The food was very much lacking and so disappointing!! The sides were cold including the pomme frites (gross). Honestly, how do you mess up french fries? They tasted like they had been sitting under a heating lamp and had a weird texture. Also, my mother's dinner, the shrimp and grits, was served ice cold and instead of remaking it - they literally microwaved it and brought out the reheated dish to the table. They also didn't have the decency to take the meal off the bill which I did not request, but $40 for reheated shrimp and scallops is just bad business. The next time I want to spend $500 on a nice dinner - it definitely won't be here!
The food was absolutely amazing. We went with a party of 6 celebrating a graduation, birthdays, and mother’s day and every person with us felt important and special. The food was perfectly cooked. Monterey Bay is my favorite restaurant and will remain that way. Thank you!
The food was fantastic and our server, Brad, was simply outstanding. His attitude, attention and dedication to providing superior service was second to none.
Went for my girlfriend’s birthday and it was our first time there. Everything was excellent including the service. Honestly probably the best seafood I have ever had. The calamari was superb. Can’t wait to come again!
Ambiance was outstanding. View is awesome. Food was AMAZING.
Service was fantastic. We were partnered with Holly who was very patient as she answered our questions and helped us choose our entree's based on the questions she asked. We were celebrating our 12th Anniversary and we had such an AWESOME evening.
Great customer services. All the food is fresh. Beautiful view of the city.
I had 2 meals not up to par. My ap
An all out positive experience for a special person birthday date!
Wonderful server, some of the best food I’ve ever had. Went there for my husband’s 31st birthday, and they even wrote on the dessert plate!
We were celebrating my son’s 15th birthday. This is his favorite restaurant. The food was as good as it always it. We love the Tuna - sashimi style, the crab bisque and the crab cakes are to die for. Our server was a bit odd, she got friendlier as the night went on, but that is the primary reason that I didn’t give service 5 stars as well.
Celebrated my daughters graduation from Pitt. What an outstanding evening. Thank you. We will be back.
We have been to many fine restaurants. This one is excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Crispy Calamari, She Crab Bisque, Filet Mignon, Salmon. Don't miss the Branzino (sea bass) special. The French Chablis went well with the fish. Perfect Creme Brulee. Service was excellent. The view alone is worth going. Pricey but worth it.
Multiple members of my extended family are world travelers, and high end foodies. Every person at the table commented on the exquisite food, the beautiful view from the Incline down to the rivers and downtown Pittsburgh, and the fabulous waiter we had dedicated to our table of 10. Several of the world traveled/high end foodies stated that this was the best meal they have ever had in their lifetime, in all their travels and all their high end food experiences. This is the second time I have used MBFG for a special celebration meal in Pittsburgh, and I would not hesitate to use them again in the future. Plan your budget, it is expensive but worth every penny!
