Luke D. was our server and his knowledge of the menu and recommendations were superb. It was our first time dining there. We will definitely be going back.
The most amazing dining experience we have ever had. We cannot wait to go back. From service to food it was absolutely amazing. It is pricey so sadly can’t be a frequent thing but such a treat!!
Every single bite was exquisite. Best views in the city!
The atmosphere definitely did not disappoint. However the food left a lot to be desired. The shrimp bisque and the dessert was the best of all of it. The bisque tasted good going down but we ran to the bathroom all day today.
Overall, the view and food was amazing. Our waiter was not personable at all & had some rude remarks towards the birthday girl.
Food was good. Server adequate but didn't really promote anything in particular. Restaurant had beautiful views but didn't have anything particularly special about the decor.
We celebrated my son's birthday and it was perfect. The atmosphere was lovely. The view is amazing. Food was phenomenal and the staff was beyond great. We will be back to celebrate my daughter's birthday in the spring!!
Big eye tuna and swordfish were amazing. The trio special appetizer was fantastic. And the view.....words cannot express!
Always good. Always classy.
The shrimp scallops and grits was delicious. Overall great experience and felt very at home.
The atmosphere and service were excellent. The food could have been better.
Great time great food, beautiful space and atmosphere.
A restaurant that has been in the area you actually forget how good it really is. Service, food, and view is all you could ask for. The only negative is that there should be more valets for the parking. Although I didn't have an issue it seemed that a lot of people were waiting quite a while to get their car.
My wife & I both enjoyed. The waiter was extremely personable while quite efficient. The Halibut was awesome and Monterey always has great sides and nice portions. My wife loves the crab cakes (Monterey signature) but who doesn't. I order a crab cake to serve as an appetizer. I'm not a big fan of Mount Washington but always make time to fit in Monterey.
Great view of the city, especially at sunset! The food was delicious and the “shareable portion” sides were large. Highly recommend!
Excellent service. Excellent food. View is spectacular
Luke was a great waiter and made the night even better
We visited to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday, made reservations approximately 1 month in advance and we're giving a great table near the window. We ordered the red fish special and the Chilean sea bass but we had the preparation that normally comes on the swordfish on the sea bass. Both dishes were incredible The fish was cooked perfectly and the sauces were excellent. We would love to say that we will return frequently but unfortunately we will have to save this place for special occasions. We went on a Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. and found the place not very crowded at all. The prices are high but everything that we ordered was executed flawlessly so I left feeling good for the amount of money that we paid. They most certainly will return for special occasions and we're happy to share our opinions of the restaurant with our friends and family.
Ryan, our server was PERFECT! Just the right amount of attentive ness, super friendly but absolutely professional!
We hadn’t been to the restaurant in a couple years ( because of COVID) and the menu is so abbreviated from previous years which we find disappointing. And all three of us agreed that the fish preparations were all too overwhelming, laid on too thick. We all pushed most of it aside. We come for the fish!
Our waitress was great
John, the atmosphere and the food were fantastic!!
We came for my husbands birthday. We had a wonderful Dining experience and never felt rushed. We were seated against the window, but 2 people had their backs to the window. Next time I will be sure we get a table where all in our party can see the view.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had! We had a beautiful view of the city and our server was wonderful.
Amazing food service and experience. Above and beyond! Will definitely be back.
Amazing food and service. Everything was top notch. We were traveling for our anniversary from out of town and would highly recommend to anyone going to Pittsburgh. We will be dining again if we visit again!
Delicious food, great service, and an awesome view.
This place has always exceeded any of my expectations. Made my first date so memorable and she was so impressed, Saud she " Felt like a Princess" . Thank you for making my date so beautiful and possibly the rest of my life wonderful!
Always a wonderful time. We've been here quite a few times and on this visit the food was phenomenal. The service and atmosphere are always great. Anthony the manager that evening came over and spoke with us..always a pleasure to see him.
Our family have been celebrating birthdays for many years. So happy they expanded local beers to their menu. Food was fantastic, as usual!
Great place. Best crab cakes, better than Phillips.
Have eaten there many times but our group of five was very disappointed. Too crowded, too warm, food was very salty, air loomed tomatoes were not good. Other than that it was terrific...
We arrived early and were seated right away! Wonderful table views. Outstanding service. Dessert came with a lite candle to celebrate my sister’s birthday. The menu offers a nice variety of price options, so is affordable if someone is on a budget. I’ll go more frequently!
Wonderful service and wonderful food. A perfect night for celebration.
It was a very good dinner. The view of the city was amazing. The wagyu was awesome and so are the crabcakes. I would definitely recommend coming here for a special occasion. Worth the money.
The experience was very nice. The service was impeccable. Locations amazing, for the price I felt I should not have walked away hungry. Food quality was good but not outstanding overall it was a very good experience.
Excellent service from all front of house staff
Brad our server was wonderful. Had asked about 3 weeks in advance for a window seat. Got seated on upper level away from the window. That aside the experience was great. The steak was good but not for a 70$ wagyu ribeye I was hoping for a bit more. lobster Romano was really nice. Truffle frites and Brussel sprouts were outstanding. Ambience was top notch..
Beautiful view looking over downtown Pittsburgh and the three rivers. Food was excellent as was the service. Plan to go back next time in town.
Our server, Trevor, did an outstanding job. He was outgoing, friendly, professional, and is an asset to your restaurant. The food was outstanding , and as always, the view and atmosphere is amazing.
