We had a dinner/meeting with several out of town associates. I prefer to present Pittsburgh to first time visitors at Monterey Bay. The food is always exceptional and the view second to none.

Incredible experience for the both of us! The pre-meal lounge was beautiful and the dinner window seat was incredible. Thank you for making this such a memorable experience!

Was disappointed by my seat location, pole in way of view. The main dish was wonderful, however the sides were only okay. Need to bring back the fried rice and perhaps change the sides weekly and leave the most popular items always on.

Great food and good service, but what really makes Monterey Bay Fish Grotto worth the hefty pricetag is the incredible view out the floor-to-2-story-ceiling window. The ambience is perfect for a next-level romantic date.

This place is great... no longer the Monterey Bay of yesterday. The decor was beautiful and compliments the view of Pittsburgh. Now, the food was excellent. My wife enjoyed the lobster risotto, which pretty much a whole lobster in it! My dish, the crab cakes with scallops was perfect. Nothing but crab in the cake, scallops cooked and seasoned perfectly. We will definitely be going back in the coming months.

Second time visiting Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. The only thing I can mention, which I do not blame on anyone, was service was a bit slower. Due to it being a holiday weekend I cannot hold that against the restaurant or staff.

This is always a great place for a date. The service is wonderful, the food is amazing, and even in a foggy storm the location is lovely.

Dined her for late Valentine's Day celebration. Despite their being a whiteout most of the meal obstructing the city view, my wife and I had a really great time. Food was excellent as were the cocktails. I would certainly make another trip to dine at this establishment.

Very pleased with our dinner. Our server was excellent. The view is arguably the best in Mt. Washington. Valet service and coat service was a nice addition. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a romantic, fine dining experience with excellent seafood, and an incredible view.

Best crab cakes I have ever had, including ones I have had in Baltimore/DC and North Carolina. Sea bass was perfectly cooked and great suggestions from waiter on wine pairings with the food we ordered. Great spot to take the incline up and walk to as well. You get what you pay for, it is expensive but the quality of food is phenomenal.

Food and atmosphere were excellent. My wife and I had been referred to this restaurant by a friend and it exceeded my expectations right down to the food and the staff. Would highly recommend if your looking for a nice date/evening and dinner in the Pittsburgh area.

Didn't like the 2 tops being right next to each other. Felt as if I was with a group of 6 being in the middle table with my wife.

With the prices so high i expected quality food and that is not what i got. Lobster was over cooked and dry. Filet was asked for medium and one side was rare and the other side medium well. Potato side was dry and lacked flavor. The view was amazing but i feel like your paying high prices for the view and not for the food.

Major disappointment since ownership change. Menu has shrunk. Restaurant needs a facelift. Just worn and dated. Food not nearly as good as the previous owners. Extremely overpriced, including cocktails. I have entertained clients for 25 years in the Pittsburgh area. I will be back to this one.
