Went to celebrate Father’s Day and a family member's retirement+birthday. Gracious service, exquisite food and everyone was very down to earth and friendly. Even though its upscale it has a very noticeable warm and inviting feel. Hands down the absolute BEST dining experience with an amazing view of the city! Will always continue to dine here because every detail is considered EACH time in order to provide the best family memories.

The presentation and taste of the food was excellent. The beautiful view of the city and the three rivers added to an already very enjoyable evening. Our server celebrated our anniversary with a surprise after the meal--very thoughtful.

We made reservations at Altius for our anniversary. The food (lamb shank and chicken breast - with a few bonus treats along the way!) was just as incredible as the view. The service was prompt and friendly. We’ll be back!

Food was very good. Very limited menu due to the lack of help. Everyone still wearing mask and Plexiglass still up across the entire bar. Mask still required to walk in. Not sure why the tight restrictions. Other area restaurants have relaxed Covid requirements. Still a nice place, but a bit pricey for what you get and the limited selections. You are paying for the view which is awesome.

Our first time at Altius and we will return the next time we visit Pittsburgh. The starter of popcorn was a nice touch. Our lamb shanks were large and very well prepared. The service was top-notch and while we didn't have a window table, the beautiful view of downtown could still be seen. All in all, a great experience.

All the wait staff were personable and friendly. The food was excellent with extra little included touches like honey butter popcorn, bread service, a small appetizer, and a little dessert to take with you at the end. The seating, decorations, and view were incredible. We loved everything about Altius and will absolutely return!

Everything was very lovely. I was disappointed, though, that 2 things have changed since the pandemic. The first is the bread basket with 3 choices was gone (although the focaccia was delicious). And the second was the small take home treat was missing. But the food is excellent!!! And service is excellent!!

We love Altius! The crab toast is addictive, and the food preparations are traditional with a wonderful original touch. Ingredients are top notch. Desserts are elegant. Little appetizer and treats are a hospitality plus. Staff is so pleasant and professional.
Great wine, beer, and cocktails.
Can’t beat the spectacular view either.

My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary and we were delighted with every aspect of this restaurant. The professionalism of the concierge paired with knowledge and friendliness from the waitstaff made for a pleasant experience...but the food was just out of this world! We cannot wait to go back!

This is our second time to Altius and it was not as impressive as the first. Service seemed very slow and lacking. Food was delicious but fairly one note (e.g., rich/decadent). It was still a great night out and wonderful time, but it wasn't the exceptional experience it was at first. I think some of this might be due to COVID-related changes in service/food prep.

Excellent as always. The food is very good and the service is excellent. We had a party of 6 and we were clearly the last to leave. I had my back to the restaurant and didn't even realize how late it was until we got up to go and I saw the empty restaurant. Not once did anyone give us any idea that they were ready to close - they just let us enjoy our dinner. Sure it's expensive, but you get what you pay for here.

Best meal in Pittsburgh. Been here for 18 years. Excellent wine list by the glass and fair pricing. It’s pricey overall, the entire experience is so good, it ends up being a great value.

The view is magnificent! The food was excellent, and I especially loved the biscuit served before the meal. Our server was friendly and attentive, and I felt comfortable with the safety precautions taken. The little "extras" thrown in between courses are always interesting and fun. My one issue was the room temperature. I mentioned it as we sat down, but there didn't seem to be anything that could be done about it. It was as cold as the refrigerated section at Costco and I had to keep my jacket on throughout dinner and was still uncomfortably cold.
