    Altius is by far one of the best - if not the best - restaurants in Pittsburgh. The view is outstanding and makes any special occasion even more special. The service is impeccable, the cocktails are unique and expertly crafted, and the food is spectacular - both in its presentation and culinary excellence. Just know it’s a bit pricey, but worth it. After dinner, be sure to walk next door to the overlook for a photo op with this beautiful city as your backdrop.

    As with my past experiences at Altius, the service, food and the view was outstanding. It has a creative menu, stellar drink and wine list, and wonderful staff.

    The view is spectacular. The food however is pedestrian at best. We had listed a birthday celebration with the reservation, but got nothing for it - no wishes or comments, even seated at mediocre table several rows back from windows (the view being main attraction here) and behind a pole - so not at all a prime location. The amuse bouche was a mushroom soup like concoction, very heavy on mushroom (not a light or finessed effort). Left a terrible taste in one’s mouth. The oysters were fine as appetizer (hard to screw up), but the tuna tartar was bland & tasteless (all seasonings were “on the side” apparently - leaving a raw meat plain “patty” that was wholly unappetizing. The main course - my pork chop was undercooked & raw (server never asked me what temp beforehand, and then only asked about it later after meal was clearly over). I ate the meat closest to bone (which was somewhat cooked) but rest was inedible (i like rare meat but this was ridiculous). Manager came over at end of meal to apologize & offer desserts but the dinner had been ruined at that point. Even the “take home” bite of a chocolate brownie was dry & tasteless. (Box mixes taste better). Wine was decent (got a nice rec from the beverage manager) but sadly not enough to salvage the evening. Not a dining delight (and a downer for my birthday). Definitely not worth the prices charged. Will not be back.
