Exemplary service and tasty and complex food the whole evening. Not a bad view either.
Everyone was friendly, patient, kind, warm, welcoming and very accommodating. We have never had a bad experience.
Amazing view and Food!
First time there for me. My wife has been there before. Food was superb and great service! it was raining heavily but the views are awesome. Definitely want to back when it is not raining for the best view in Pittsburgh.
We had an excellent experience. The food was creative and tasted fabulous. I highly recommend the scallops. The service was great and the Sommelier was really helpful without being over the top. Found us a bottle of old world Italian wine at the price point we wanted. Overall, a very nice evening.
As far as food experiences go, best I've ever had hands down. Jaclyn our server was incredibly sweet and attentive and the food was outrageously good, I experienced flavors and textures that I had not previously known existed. We were pleasantly surprised with foods from staff. All that not mentioning our vantage point. Not only did we get to see Pittsburgh alive and bustling in the evening but we were lucky enough to see a lightning storm in the middle of our meal. Absolutely breathtaking flavors, ambience, and view.
Lord willing I will be coming back. Drove 2 hours, worth every penny, all 280,000 of them.
I went to Altius on 2/13/18 with my girlfriend and left with a fiance! We'd never been there before, but we both had heard great things, so I rolled the dice with a ring in my pocket and it all worked out perfectly. We had a gorgeous view of the city from a window table, and we're treated very well by the staff (even though they were unaware of the proposal). The service was outstanding and the food was some of the best I've had in the city. Gretchen was our server and was extremely accommodating, even helped take a video of us while I put the ring on her finger (THANK YOU GRETCHEN!). Altius will always be a special place for us, but it's also a special place in this city. Highly recommended by two (soon to be married) industry professionals.
Food was remarkable with unique flavors that enhanced to taste of the meals we selected. The service was outstanding as our server made a point to explain in great detail the nightly specials which my date and I selected for our meals. I always enjoy the server's own opinion on what to try as an appetizer so the crab cigar was highly recommended. We will most definitely be back. The only recommendation I have is that the entrance to the restaurant should be altered so that when the door is opened, the outside cold air does not flood the main level of the establishment.
Experience was lovely but the only thing we didn’t like was our table was at the rear of the restaurant with absolutely no view . So part of the Mt Washington experience and price paying for the great food and view. We feel like we only had half of the experience. Nice touches With the popcorn, small marscapone cone and take home cookie.
Altius offers one of the best views in Pittsburgh. Perched on Mt. Washington overlooking the point where the 3 rivers converge, is ideal. But, the view is not all they have. Everything from the welcome by the hostess to the upscale dining room set the tone for a special evening. The menu was inventive. The service was impeccable. We started with the lobster bisque which was delicious. Warm bread selections were delivered to the table with optional spreads. I had a filet with Gongonzola. My husband had the duck with a pastry wrapped pear. Both were wonderful. There were special treats sent from the kitchen like a strawberry and basil palate cleanser presented like a mini ice cream cone. All in all, it was a wonderful evening. Prices reflect the quality of the establishment so don't expect to get off cheap. Our tab was about $250 for the two of us with a bottle of wine but no dessert or coffee. I would highly recommend Altius for a special night out! You won't be disappointed.
Great dinner, great service, was actually taken back
By the overall quality of the meal, tuna carpaccio was good, delicious duck, even the wine was top notch,
We had a wonderful experience. Food was delicious. Service very good. We got the lamb and pork dishes. Perfectly cooked. The red velvet ice cream sandwich was awesome.
Amazing food and service, I had the 16oz rib eye and the largest scallops I have ever seen!!! Wife had the surf and turf, it was equally amazing. Top notch service and wait staff. We only go once a year but it is wonderful each time.
My husband and I dined at Altius on "Fat Tuesday" and we certainly took advantage of the day because EVERYTHING we ate was so delicious and we didn't leave a drop. Already recommended to many friends! Great addition to our city's food scene.
I would list Altius as one of the best resturants in Pittsburgh, and not just because it has an amazing view. The food is amazing!! And being from Pittsburgh, the competion is steep with so many good restaurants to chose from. It's a little on the expensive side but worth the price when looking for that "over the top" experience.
Altius is one of the best restaurants in the city. The ambiance is great and the view is spectacular! The service was exceptional. And, the food is delicious! The chef also sends some extras to the table. Be prepared for a great dining experience.
Everything was great, my wife and I had a wonderful dining experience.
Altius is an upscale restaurant that is worth the price for a special occasion. The decor is modern and very pretty. The staff is excellent and very attentive. We enjoyed a leisurely meal that was delicious. The view spectacular! The little extras are an added plus! We would definitely recommend Altius!
Awesome meal! Awesome service! Will be back for our 4th try again soon!
