We were so glad Altius reopened in time to celebrate my birthday. The food and service were outstanding, as usual. Their safety protocols were fantastic. We cannot recommend Altius enough!

All the food was fantastic. Maybe the best lamb I've ever had. Service was excellent, as expected at a high end restaurant like this. Prices were not unreasonable for the quality of food and atmosphere. Menu selection was somewhat limited but we would definitely return when the menu changes.

We remember when this restaurant was the Georgetown Inn and it has changed completely.
We always enjoyed our dining at Georgetown, but this experience at Altius was completely different with the remodeled restaurant and the unique menu.

We will definitely will recommend to our friends ... and will definitely make it our special occasion restaurant of choice

It was mine and my Son's BDay and the exquisite desert was FABULOUS!!

Unforgettable evening! The majestic view and architecture alone made the whole experience worthwhile. The staff, especially Rodman; were exceptional, attentive, genuine and knowledgeable. The most enjoyable part of the evening was the warm and welcoming owner "B" -- she made a personal connection with every table of guests. Chef's plates were flavorful as they were expertly blended and designed. Its been a long time since I was blown away by the pastry chef with his or her divine creations. Can't wait to travel back to Pittsburgh.

Not only did Altius meet all of our normal expectations but they are doing an amazing job with distancing and cleaning.
With the rise of cases I was a bit nervous to keep our reservation but I felt so comfortable the whole time we were there.

The view of the city was spectacular! The service was impeccable. The food was amazing from the charcuterie down to dessert. You must try the risotto....horseradish and bacon, not overpowering but just the right balance of flavors. Our waitress was so friendly and knlowdgeable about all of the meals. We will definitely go again. Highly recommend.

My wife's birthday and we returned to Altius for the first time since the pandemic. While quieter than usual, the food, service and view were outstanding. Wine list is a little shorter, but nothing to cause concern as yet.

Altius is expensive but meets the expected standard. Service was very good. Our waiter was attentive when needed and did not spend too much time asking "is everything ok?" There was an extra person who came around once also asking if everything was ok which was unnecessary.
Food was excellent in presentation, taste and proportion. House pinot noir was excellent. I had 2 glasses and wife 1.
