Altius Ratings and Reviews
Service was impeccable and food was very good. We went to celebrate a birthday, and they provided us with a wonderful complimentary dessert. They were very accommodating for food allergies. I would definitely go back again. This has become our favorite fine dining place in Pittsburgh!
The waitress had a terrible and overpowering smell of cigarettes. Both of our steaks (filet minion) were charred even though we ordered them medium. We never got bread for the table and had to ask twice for it. The waitress was at our table maybe three or four times (including taking our order, seating us, etc.) over the course of 3 hours. Food was way overpriced for the flavor. However, the risotto was phenomenal. Would not recommend.
Stunning view of the city from the top of Mt. Washington. The food was 4.5 stars — the only detractor being that the aged ribeye special was a bit tough and overpriced for the mediocre flavor. Everything else was first-class. The pork chop was a real stand-out — tender, juicy and full of flavor.
Overall, it’s definitely an experience every PGHer should have. It’s hard to justify the price for the food alone, but the view and the atmosphere are second to none in our city.
As much as I've enjoyed the many times I've been to Altius, at this last visit I found the food to be overly complicated and uninspiring. Every dish seemed to mix savory and sweet flavors in a not particularly successful way, particularly the cloying risotto that was a bed to salmon with pomegranates. Perhaps this would best be put down to "Trying too hard". The prices have also increased beyond their already exceptionally high level for the Pittsburgh market; this would be tolerable given the stupendous view if the food was top notch, but for rather ordinary and not that good fare it is unsupportable. Still that view can't be beat, but I'm hoping that the kitchen gets back on track.
This is the second time we've been here. Our daughter attends the University of Pittsburgh and this place has become our "special dinner" each time we visit. We also have suggested it to friends a few times. Beautiful view, great food, wonderful drinks - just an already great place.
My wife and I dined at Altius, for the first time, on Saturday, November 4th. The entire experience was a perfect "10"!!!! The food was awesome! We each had a beet salad. For our entrees, I had the lamb loin and my wife ordered the 10 oz. filet. We shared a "bombolino" for dessert along with coffees. Jeff was our fabulous server. There is not one thing I could speak negatively about. The chef knocked it out of the park. The service and food were great...and oh, the view was great when I occasionally looked up from my plate.
Our first time at Altius. Service (Maria) was outstanding, food was creative and delicious, View was amazing. Very romantic with low lighting and candle lit dinner. Will definitely recommend to family and friends. We were there for a very special occasion and Altius exceeded our expectations. We look forward to our next visit.
Spectacular in every way!! We had a wonderful celebration for my mother-in-law’s 90th birthday and everyone made her feel special from the minute we walked in! The staff new her name and personally wished her a happy birthday! They took it upon themselves to create a unique dessert that said Happy Birthday with a candle! Food was superb and service excellent! The view of the city was beautiful! Hope to make Altius it a birthday tradition!
Make no mistake, this is a high end restaurant. Your final bill will be about $100/person depending on whether or not you drink and how generously you tip your server (this is in 2017). And in my opinion, it's worth every penny. Their product is excellent food and a spectacular view, and that's exactly what you get. Four individuals ordered three different entrees and they were all superb. Appetizers were generous and uniformly delicious. Service was excellent, the perfect balance of attentiveness without becoming overwhelming. All in all, this is a dining experience to be savored. I've visited Altius a number of times in the past, and I plan on returning in the future.
Altius presents among the most beautifully executed foods in Pittsburgh, in an incomparable setting high above the city. Service is exceptional and friendly. All of this comes at a price, of course, but in this instance you feel like you've had your money's worth.
The food was great and even though it was priced high it was worth it. That said, we got the bums rush and felt hurried throughout the entire meal. The waiter hovered and cleared plates when others were still eating. For a meal that costs as much as that did I was disappointed that they rushed us out as quickly as they did. I'll never go back.
