We love this restaurant but it was a bit 'off' this past visit. Too loud, service a bit slow, and the food, which is usually 'over the top' good, was overcooked and dry. Oh well, can't always be the best.
Food and drinks are great. Tracy was the best server
We had an absolutely marvelous dinner. Beautiful restaurant, stunning view with a bonus gorgeous sunset !!!! The food was delicious, good size portions, perfectly prepared, without a long wait. Our waitress Mandy was super friendly, very helpful with the menu and even took our picture for a special momento :o) We were there to celebrate my birthday and the atmosphere was perfect for a romantic evening. Everyone who visited the table was very personable and made us feel at home. We will definitely be back and would recommend as a must visit destination spot in Pittsburgh !!!
As always, Monterey Bay Fish Grotto delivered more than expected! I have been there several times and every time I go, I am anxious to return. Our waitress was delightful! The food was phenomenal and the service was excellent! The view was spectacular.
My wife and I chose Monterey Bay for a special dining experience for our 32nd wedding anniversary. Everything was superb. Fantastic crab cakes and salmon for our entrees. Great service and a very friendly and professional staff. And the view of Pittsburgh from the top of Mt. Washington could not be better. Awesome from start to finish!
I felt like the service was a little intrusive. My husband and I were interrupted so many tines by the server and the mgr asking us questions. There is an art to checking in with customers. It kind of ruined the what should have been relaxing experience for us. Great view and good food!
Everything was perfect from start to finish from our appetizers, meals, drinks, and dessert! Our server was very attentive and made great suggestions.
Fantastic meal...fantastic service!
We had friends from Las Vegas in town who had not been to Pittsburgh in quite some time, and, since we had experienced the view from the bar before, we were able to get a table for the 5 of us in a great location, Karin T's service was fantastic, and our food was delictible!
This a "must visit" anyone who wants to experience all of the above!
I have been coming here for years. It is always a superb dining experience.
Excellent dining, service, and views.
I will come back soon.
We love this restaurant. However the last two times we’ve been there, the service was so-so and our dinners were luke warm by the time they reached our table. Hoping things can get resolved. It’s a very high priced menu which means service and food should be superb.
The restaurant has a breathtaking view that makes it perfect for special occasions. Food is tasty. My only suggestion would be that they had more wait staff. Our waitress was very good, but she was manning several tables so we did not get our order taken until a good 15-20 minutes after being seated. Also to even get water took quite a bit of time. This seemed too long of a wait for such a high end restaurant.
Everyone was so welcoming! The entire staff treated us so special for our anniversary!! Timing was impeccable and the food was incredible!
Monterrey Bay is our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh and we always bring out of town visitorsand family for dinner. We love thhe food, view and fantastic service.
Delicious food and amazing wait staff! The view of the city is also fantastic.
Celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary. As Pittsburgh residents, we had lots of fabulous dining options but chose Monterey Bay because of the great food, excellent service and the spectacular view.
We had a couple of people in our group with dietary restrictions so the server had to ask the kitchen staff and get back with us. Other restaurants the chef would come out and make recommendations. Our food choices were great and the chocolate flourless cake is a must. Good wines and amazing views of the city. Always enjoy visits to Monterey.
Everything was absolutely wonderful and so delicious!!
Excellent food, stunning vistas, and creative desserts. A first-class restaurant.
Fish dishes were fresh and presented well. Waitress very attentive. GREAT scenic views of the city. We will return when in town.
We had a great table with a view of the City Of 3 rivers. A great meal of lemon Sole. The service provided by Marquee was special. She added so much to our delicious meal.
Great restaurant and great service. The entire party enjoyed their food.
Excellent food, great service and a wonderful view! Definitely one of the best spots in Pittsburgh. Highly recommend.
75th Birthday. Couldn’t have been better!! Server and food were top notch. Very intimate table. Hadn’t been here since it was Christopher’s. Cannot imagine a better special occasion venue. Ahi tuna perfect. Crab cakes best outside of Baltimore. Creole dish with scallops, shrimp, sausage, and cheesy grits a real hit. Add a bottle of Schug Pinot Noir and save room for dessert!
Outstanding service...........great atmosphere. Very happy we went for our anniversary.
We came for the view, which is fantastic, but the food is excellent as well. Service was good and food came quickly, although it was quite busy. Only negative is we had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table although we had a rrservation.
The Big Eye tuna sashimi style remains a favorite, and I still think the crab cakes are great. I always want to branch out and try other things but these are so good we share them every time! Service was excellent, too. Tracey was a wonderful server.
Overall great experience. A little too much service for my taste but other than that, great food, best dinner view in the Burgh!
Fantastic view of the three rivers. Staff was great. Food was excellent and there was a great drink selection. First time there and very impressed. This place is worth putting on the list of dinner places if you are in Pittsburgh.
The last time I was at Monterey Bay was three years ago and I remember have a very tasty crab stuffed shrimp. This particular visit was a bit disappointing. The menu seemed to be different but I had crab and my husband had the special of surf and turf. He did not like the steak as some unusual seasoning was used. His lobster cake was just adequate. For the cost of this meal, I was a bit disappointed !
We had a great meal. The service was perfect. The food was fantastic
View was great but the food prices and portions were poor
Out of this world views - even at a "regular" table. Friendly, welcoming staff. Excellent seafood - especially the lobster bisque and crab cakes!
First time there, was an excellent experience and will definitely come back and recommend to others.
Monterey Bay has always been one of our family favorites especially when we are in the mood for great seafood (the best in the Burgh!) but hadn't been there for about 2 years. The table layout changed a bit as did the menu, but the ambiance, service, food quality and creativity is still the same -- Excellent!
We won't wait that long again to go back!
Great service with a great view. Food also great
An otherwise elegant dinner got off to a weak start when we were seated by what I'm guessing was a busboy who was not dressed well - half untucked black tee shirt, no eye contact, seemed unsure where our table was. However, our actual server did a good job, really knew the menu and kept the right balance between checking on us and being unobtrusive.
Food is good but very, very pricey. Not a good value versus Altius.
Amazing food. Wonder family celebration for two birthdays and our anniversary. A favorite every year! Our server was very helpful (Anna) and everyone had a memorable evening! And get the crab cakes!!!
Our food and service was tremendous. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and they provided us with dessert and coffee. Our waitress was amazing, the manager was amazing and the food was amazing. Great place to celebrate a special occasion.
