Food was phenomenal and so is the view.
Always a great night when visiting Altius. Food is amazing, service fantastic and the ambience breathtaking.
When we talk about supporting restaurants during the pandemic this should be your first choice. I promise you won’t regret it!
Had such a great time here with my boyfriend for his birthday. Our view was amazing. The ambiance is amazing. Such a great time and our waitress was lovely. Will definitely be back
Amazing great atmosphere
For a perfect evening in Pittsburgh, I would recommend Altius. Great service, wonderful menu choices, and a spectacular view. Who could go wrong?
The food is always delicious and the service is impeccable. I love going here especially when I’m entertaining visitors from out of town it’s the perfect spot to showcase Pittsbugh’s food and the view is the best spot in the city.
Incredible food and service with a stunning view of the city! 10/10 !
As usual, everything was wonderful! Altius is our favorite go to place for a special occasion!
This was one of the best meals I’ve had in Pittsburgh. The dining area is very quiet, even though it is all open and the view is amazing. We were not sitting at the windows looking out, but you could still see the city. Highly recommend!!
Phenomenal food quality!! Always delicious!
Its always a pleasure going to Altius. It doesn't get any better on Mt. Washington!
Altius is a top experience in Pittsburgh for a date. We had a fantastic time and will certainly be coming back for special occasions
Awesome waitress with knowledge of menu. Great experience to dine and see the Pittsburgh skyline. Food was delicious and portions were just right.
The view of course is beautiful, but the menu is limited. We had a sea bass, steak and chicken entree - all of which were just so-so. Certainly not worth the entree price of $42 for the sea bass. The martinis were $17.
It felt like the chef was trying way too hard to impress with over-the-top ideas that were t pulled together successfully.
Would not go back again. Plenty of other ant. Washington restaurants that have the same view with better food.
It was great love it there service was the best
Waitress and staff were absolutely wonderful! Food was fabulous & the view was breathtaking.
We all felt Life was normal 💞
We had a wonderful dinner for our Anniversary. The crab bisque was amazing as was the lamb shank. The cod special was delicious as well. Great service!!
Pricey but worth every penny. Gorgeous view of the Pittsburgh skyline and rivers; food was excellent and artistically presented. Service was friendly and exceeded all expectations. An unforgettable experience!
It was freezing cold and the food was just ok
I would highly recommend Altius to go for celebration of special occasion absolutely fabulous food service, view, and food
We really loved going to Altius for the first time and our 5 year anniversary. The food was wonderful, the staff were wonderful, and our waitress Gretchen was fantastic! We will definitely be coming back after they made an already special day for us even better.
The best choice I made this year was coming here for my birthday dinner/Valentine’s day dinner. Everything from the moment you pull up out front to leaving after dinner was perfect.
My husband and I went for Valentine’s Day dinner. Everything was amazing - the food, the service, the space. We had the crab toast starter, the salmon, and the chicken. All was delicious. The bread service was wonderful as was the popcorn!
As always, Altius delivers the best food and service around.
My husband and I picked this place due to its reviews and awards. We both found it to be overrated. Unless you get a seat by the window, the restaurant isn’t very special and certainly isn’t worth the price. The food was good and large portions but the dessert seemed like it had been made way in advance and refrigerated and the staff seemed in a hurry to rush us through our meal. Also the popcorn served at the beginning was random and didn’t seem to go with fine dining. As stated before, the only thing that makes this restaurant unique at all is the view, everything else seemed overrated.
The staff was so gracious from the start. Our waiter was very helpful in describing the menu and making sure we were satisfied with our choices. I will definitely return again. Also, the view is a spectacular site of downtown.
Great presentation, beautiful plated food with excellent service. Angela was great also
I was here with my girlfriend over Valentine’s Day weekend. We had a 5:45pm reservation on Saturday, February 13. I found the time to be ideal, as a 5:30-7pm dinner start time is my preference.
We were seated promptly by an attentive hostess. Our waitress was efficient, observant, and kind. The 1.5 hour allotted time slot proved to be plenty. The prices were commensurate with the ambiance and quality. The value was good.
Unfortunately, the view was obstructed by fog, but that of course couldn’t be helped.
As for the food itself, the spinach salad proved to be a solid start with the unique bacon vinaigrette dressing. My girlfriend’s salmon was very good, and my Chilean sea bass was one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had. The glass of rosé was refreshing. The accompaniments were distinctive - salt and vinegar popcorn and a (forgot the type) semi-sweet tart.
The warm herb and tomato bread was satisfying.
We skipped dessert, which we would have later at home.
Altius remains my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh for special occasions. I will be back.
Went for Valentine’s. View was stunning, even on a cloudy evening. Revived several compliments of the chef, all fantastic. Food was incredible. Did notice one vegan entree option. Large selection of wines.
Will absolutely be back.
Visited Altius for an early Valentine’s Day dinner date and was not disappointed. The friendly and attentive staff was exceptional, the service was on point, the apps and dinner were perfectly prepared, and the pastry chefs outdid themselves. We will certainly be back to try everything else on the menu. Thank you for a perfect night out!
This is probably our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. It’s an excellent view of the city, their staff is wonderful, and the chef produces exquisite food. We went there last night for a Valentine’s Day dinner and we were not disappointed.
Best food with the best view in the city! Immaculate setting, and service with food to die for!!
I had never been to Altius before, but had been given a gift card in December 2019. With the pandemic the restaurant was closed for some time, but open now. So I decided to go for a Galentine’s dinner and take my daughter who has celiac. We looked at the menu in advance and it wasn’t marked detailing if there were gluten free options but she figured she could find something to eat. The menu is simple and small in my opinion but with just enough choices. We made a reservation (which I highly suggest) and arrived 10 min early and we were seated immediately. We had an unbelievable view of the city from our seat, and you can make that request I believe when reserving but honestly there isn’t a bad view in the entire place. The staff was all wearing masks and following guidelines. Spacing was made in the restaurant with tables distanced. Coy was our waiters name (I believe) and he did an excellent job. Once I mentioned my daughter has celiac he immediately brought out GF rolls for the table to go with the dipping sauce and butter. He also checked with the chef to ensure what she was ordering was in fact GF. My daughter had the rib eye steak dinner which came with mashed pot and asparagus and I had the chicken breast with risotto and carrots. Plus 2 alcoholic beverages and 2 appetizers for each (crab sherry bisque soup is gluten free BTW) our total check was $204. This restaurant is located right beside the Duquesne incline so where our table was situated I could watch it running up and down which made for a really cool view too. I would recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back sometime soon!
Terrific service. Excellent food
The food was great, the service was fantastic and the view was wonderful.
Altius is definitely a place for foodies. We had an elevated dining experience with exquisite food, fabulous service, and a stunning view. It's a bit too pricey for everyday dining, but for special occasions it's probably one of the best in Pittsburgh.
Great food, great service, and one of the best views in Pittsburgh. Every part of the meal, from the crab toast points, to the wedge salad, to the pork chop, and dessert were outstanding. Service was great - attentive but not overbearing. A very special night out.
ALWAYS A GREAT EVENING WITH GREAT PEOPLE AND GREAT FOOD
Even though the visibility was low, we still enjoyed the view and wonderful service and wait staff.
