Many restaurants with beautiful views skate by without delicious food, not Altius! The setting is spectacular, tables nicely spaced, every table has a view
Jennifer was our server, knowledgeable, attentive but unobtrusive
Food was spectacular, creative, nicely plated
Many little extras...herb flavored popcorn to start, amuse buche, fresh baked bread with 2 spreads, bags of brownies to take home!

What an incredible experience tonight at Altius! Absolutely delectable food was only rivaled by the outstanding service. A great way for us to celebrate our son going to college. We will be back with friends!

I’ve been going to Altius for four years now, since my daughter started at the university of Pittsburgh. The meals and wine are always perfect, the only problem is, that I asked to be seated by the window, because it was my daughters birthday. I didn’t get my request, even though I’ve been a loyal customer, that’s my only complaint.

We went with expectation of great view but were put at a table two rows away from windows so our view was muted. Best view obtained walking to our table and when walking out. The food and service were both incredible. Unfortunately we went to enjoy the view and not for a special occasion.

Food and service was excellent! We were not aware of the dress code and my college age son had to make change from shorts (luckily he had pants in the car). I felt we got a table with no view because of this and was upset, after being embarrassed by the hostess, to see adult patrons with shorts, seemingly not a problem for them. Either have a dress policy or don’t. Really disappointed that we had no view which was the main reason we chose the restaurant.

In a city full of options, Altius has set the bar pretty high and has surpassed the competition by far. Amazing food, with out of this world flavors and a staff with customer service second to none; the view is just the cherry on top. This had just become my favorite go to in Pittsburgh!

Everything was great except our table. Reservations were made over one month ago requesting a table by the window to celebrate a 70th Birthday! We were seated behind a pole and hostess told us nothing else was available. This was not our first visit and have been informed in the past that every table has a good view...not this time!!

Although the food and service was excellent the table was not! It will not be on the top of my special go to restaurants for future dining! Disappointed !!!

We came here from out of state to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and it was a fantastic experience. The food was outstanding, from the amuse bouche to the chocolate anniversary "card" and everything in between. The service was impeccable, and the view of the rivers and the skyline was breathtaking.

Tom and I had a fabulous time at Altius celebrating our 41st anniversary. All of our food choices were excellent, fresh and beautifully displayed. The service was top shelf and of course the views of the city can't be replicated. We always felt that restaurants with views, could offer average food and still have a great following. Well...Altius is so much more. We have out of town guests next Wednesday and driving in from Wexford to share our great new find.

Altius was a great experience all around. We went for a romantic dinner overlooking the city. We took the incline up and got an amazing window seat. The service was awesome. I have a gluten allergy and they provided me many options including gluten free bread as an appetizer. The food was outstanding. My fish was cooked to perfection! I will definitely return for another dinner here!!

Unfortunately, my visit did not live up to my expectations. The view is incredible; however, it was hard to see from where we sat. The wine and bread were wonderful. I ordered the special, a bone in ribeye medium rare. The steak that I received was medium well to well done, I had to send it back. By the time I received the replacement steak, my family were done with their meals. (The second steak was raw in the middle.) Service was good in the beginning. We wanted dessert; however, our server was busy and when she got back to us, we decided we were ready to go instead. Noise level was a negative factor as well. It was hard to hear my family sitting at the same table. Overall, it was disappointing.

I will return anytime I am in town without a doubt, one of my favorite restaurants by far!! Please thank our server, I could not express my sincere gratitude enough.
