I had a lovely and delicious dinner with my family. Our server was excellent. I was celebrating my birthday and I would definitely come back.

The food had great flavor overall, drinks were outstanding but took a while to get to the table, and the server was curt however articulate about the menu. Our only major complaint is the dessert was quite large, and the cake was very dry (we had the Mocha dessert). The take home pastry was also dry and crusty. Seems a few days old.

Altius continues to deliver the best food and service in the city of Pittsburgh. Our meal was nothing short of outstanding. The staff was fantastic. Everything was perfect and delicious. It was my wife's birthday and they made sure to make the evening special.

I had a wonderful time at Altius. I went for an anniversary dinner and it was a great way to spend a special night with my partner. The highlights were our entrees -- the veal osso bucco was rich and flavorful. The steak (I got the filet) was tender, cooked perfectly, and delicious. Both came with generous portions of sides. The service was incredible and we felt very welcome!

It was phenomenal; from the bacon cheddar popcorn (thanks, chef!) to the Hokkiado scallop I added to my Mediterranean Mero Seabass entree. Everything was amazing and I will definitely be back. Jason and the service staff were very welcoming and made our evening even more enjoyable.

Great food. Beautiful view. Best in Pittsburgh. Main reason for four stars on ambiance was because the lights kept flickering all night - dimming and then brightening. It was very distracting.

Ambiance was awesome and so was the service. The food itself was good but does not justify $17 per appetizer and 50$ per entree.

Nice cocktails, good wine list. The food (quality, originality and portions) were all excellent. Service was far above standard for similar upscale dining. Our server was very familiar with the menu and handled our questions without having to consult with the chef.

Expect to be gouge with prices for the view. Ok but ordered Crab bisque soup. Waitress asked if I wanted crab with my crab soup and I said of course!! Ultimate bait and switch. Ok got the bill $18 for bisque $17 for crab to be in crab bisque!! Good soup but come on $35. Take your finger out of my eye. You are gouging me!!!

I have gone here twice and each time it has been made into he most special evening for whomever I am with -- the first time was for a graduation, and we had my mother-in-law from out of town who can be difficult but the waitstaff had her laughing and feeling so special. Last night it was for my best friend's birthday and we were never rushed, the portions are huge and you will not leave home and have to eat a snack when you get there. It is spotless in the bathroom and has a way of being both down-to-earth and special/swanky at the same time. Dress is business casual but you can dress up too -- it is a range. You have to eat here at least once -- NOT overrated; worth every penny.

I took my aunt for her 70th birthday celebration. She was so happy and loved everything. The view was amazing. We felt like queens with the service and the extras that they provided. Our cod with lobster dinners were out of this world. I loved talking to the new wine director. I'm looking forward to going back soon.

In the past, the food was better. The soup, a bisque, was too salty. The fish (salmon) was good, but more spices are needed to give It more flavor. The sause was very good. The wine, Sancerre, one of my favorite wines, was not great. Get a better kind of Sancerre.
