We have always loved Altius since it first opened. Wish great beginnings would last forever. Still, service and view remain on top but two of our four entrees were way less than satisfactory. The chicken was over cooked and tasteless. The pork chop was also cooked way longer than what had been requested and was sent back. Dessert was comped but no one likes to eat their entree after everyone else has finished.

The view and presentation will bring us back one more time in the hope that the kitchen gets an upgrade in personnel.

ALL ACES: Bea, Jessica, Mick, Rob, and Patty do it again. We continue to explore the city’s best restaurants, however, Altius cannot be beat. Looks like OpenTable and 3,000 other folks agree at 4.9 across 3k reviews. We had the sea bass, scallops, veal and the lamb. We shared appetizers and desserts. This fine dining may not have been setup for family-style; we shared each of the meals. Thank you for making our going-away party spectacular. ALL ACES! -hashtag CRABtoasts. 👍🏽

Food was mostly terrific.

Desserts surprisingly below par. Great to see.. just OK to taste.

But I would go back. My reservation... its too pricey.

Food and view were good. They have a woman who walks around recording what you eat with an iPad. I can understand the need for data but this seems to be happening all over the place and is very annoying to say the least.

We went there this evening for the first time to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was simply amazing. The staff were wonderful. The view was amazing, even with it snowing. And the food, it was incredible. The crab toast was so tasty. The lamb rack was seasoned perfectly. Probably the best lamb I’ve ever had! And a cappuccino and campfire s’mores was the perfect end to our evening. We will definitely be back!! Many compliments to the chef!!

I made reservations at Altius and Off the Hook while we were visiting family in Pittsburgh. Altius is by far head and shoulders above Off the Hook. From the small touches like the amuse bouche, various delicious and unending bread, creative cocktails, and table side visit of the owner/manager, Altius established itself as the top of its class. Service was wonderful, friendly, helpful, and unrushed. Food was well seasoned and each component was stellar individually as well as composed together. For an expensive meal, Altius makes it worth it. Plus the view! Make reservations before sunset for a real treat and full experience.

My girlfriend goes to medical school in Greensburg, PA and I flew out from Arizona to visit her and celebrate my her 23rd birthday. We came to Altius because it had amazing reviews and it exceeded out expectations. We will definitely come back and recommend this restaurant to all of our friends! Thank you so much for wonderful experience =)

This is the third year in a row that my wife and I had celebrated her birthday at Altius. Each time has been an exceptional, memorable experience. We love the ambience and the superb view of downtown and it's surroundings. The price is a little steep, but an experience like this always costs a little more regardless of the restaurant. At the end of the night we've eaten a delicious meal and dined in a very elegant restaurant. We will be back in the future Altius, and we shall see you then! Eric and Dawn

This was a wonderful experience, they added something special to our dessert for our anniversary, special treat to take home, chef special treat to try, bread options, very skilled and accommodating staff and honestly some of the best food I’ve ever had. A little expensive, but great venue for a special occasion or special night out. Truly wonderful and would recommend to friends and family.

The food was absolutely amazing. We got wine and cocktails, both of which were fabulous. The service was outstanding. While the prices are on the higher side, the quality and experience make every penny spent worth it. Portions were large too so you will be leaving full. We were there for 3 hours just enjoying ourselves and will absolutely be back. 10/10 recommend all around

Had reservations and was seated promptly. The view is spectacular. My wife got a filet and myself a strip steak both were cooked to perfection. Very delicious. Drinks a little overpriced for the amount you received. Dessert really wasn’t what I was looking for either but the dinner more than made up for it. Service was spot on.

We sat and waited about 20 minutes just to order water and we were also presented with burnt popcorn and then we had to wait another 20 minutes to order our food. And they weren’t even busy. Also we were interrupted numerous times while opening gifts for an anniversary. And the lights kept getting dim and then brighter and also my girlfriend had an orange extension cord at her feet. We also got seated in a corner for a reserved table and asked to move. The steak I ordered was undercooked but the filet minon was good.
