Beginning with the valet service, from the appetizers to the first course to the entrees and through dessert, everything was perfect. Our server, Cynthia was attentive, professional yet made us feel like an old friend finally back at home. We went on a Tuesday and had no problems obtaining a 5:45 pm table for 3. COVID-19 precautions were in place and everything went smoothly. The Lobster Romano was so good! Definitely a visit here we can only afford once a year. :)

Monterey Bay Fish Grotto is an outstanding choice for fine dining. The service is top notch and the ambiance is second to none. Chef Edwin is a star, who can work magic with any food. I highly recommend and consider the Monterey Bay Fish Grotto, as the place to go in the Pittsburgh area.

We were unaware due to covid they have a limited menu. We normally come knowing we can have our selection of fresh fish any way we would like it. Seating & spacing was excellent Covid guidelines are in place. Asked waiter specifically could they prepare Ahi Tuna shasimi style with soy and Wasabi on the side. It came out as Chef's selection, not as ordered. They were very accommodating and offered us something else. The Scallops served with parmesean cream were excellent.
In addition we were celebrating a birthday so our waiter brought out 3 desserts for the inconvience. We love this restuarant but would prefer to go back when they are closer to a normal menu, but certainly understand restrictions due to Covid. Just wish we would have been informed in someway of the restricted menu.

The staff and food at this location is EXCELLENT! From the time we were greeted to our server and the manager checking on us, we felt welcomed and valued as customers and the food is absolutely top notch! Fresh fish, fresh vegetables, made in house soups and salads and locally sourced ingredients and desserts. The view of the city is also spectacular! Definitely stop here when visiting Pittsburgh and take a ride on the Incline up Mt Washington while you're at it !! :)

My food was prepared perfectly. The scallops and asparagus were delish. The only complaint I had was the diningroom was a little chilly probably due to all the windows. My husband and I had a wonderful Valentines Dinner. Thank you.

We have visited numerous times. Because of the virus there is a limited menu. We were not pleased at all with our choices. Also, for what you get it is to pricey.
