We really enjoyed our dinner at Altius. The food was amazing, and everyone who worked there was fabulous. From the delicious cocktails made by Christie, to our delightful server, Maria, it was a perfect evening. The menu provided just enough options that it didn't overwhelm. The popcorn to start was a unique touch and was very good (spicy white cheddar). I had a the Heirloom Beet Salad for an appetizer and Strip Steak for dinner. Both were delicious. I probably could have had the salad again as my entree as it was my favorite. My husband had the Ahi Tuna Carpaccio and Orange Roughy special and he enjoyed both. We didn't have room for dessert, but because it was my birthday, they brought me a fun white chocolate "card" with three homemade truffles that was the perfect end to a very pleasant evening. It is expensive, but totally worth it for a special occasion.

Been here several times. Very good meal and table/ bar service. Unfortunately we were 20 minutes late for our reservation due to a snow storm. Our bad. The hostess was not particularly friendly about it either. Make no mistake they are serious about a courtesy hold of only 10 minutes.

Excellence. From the moment you walk through the door you realize this fine dinning establishment is several cuts above. The ambiance, the quality of service and the exquisite entrees set this decadent restaurant apart from every other eatery.

Food was exceptional, as was service. Our waitress Jackie was very knowledgeable of the menu and wine. Very attentive also. The little extras between courses was a pleasant surprise.
Will definitely dine there again and again.

This was our first time at Altius and it was worth it. The staff is over the top with patrons. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable and on point through out the entire evening. The food was above and beyond what we expected.. and affordable. We were actually a little shocked at our bill as we expected it to be much higher! The ambience was cozy and the views of the city were amazing! We will definitely return next time with family and friends.

Wonderful food, excellent service and outstanding view of the city on a clear night. Celebrating an anniversary and the server even asked if we would like a photo taken. They handled making sure the roses ordered by our children and delivered to the restaurant were on the table as we were seated. Couldn't ask for a better night.

Wonderful spot at the top of Mount Washington. Menu is one page, which means that what they do, they do very well. Service was fantastic, and the view was exquisite. The bottle of wine was nice and did not break the bank. One could not afford to go here every night, but definitely go for that special occasion or if you are in need of an excellent meal.

The place has a fabulous view of Pittsburgh, but the food is just competent in the fine-dining category. The wine list was decent, but we splurged on a 1999 Burgundy— I’d say it was past its prime. Sommelier decanted it and said he’d be back in five minutes to see if it needed second decanting (just as we started eating dinner); saw him a half hour later, wine mostly consumed, of course.

This was Thanksgiving week, so the first thing that arrived at the table was Thanksgiving flavored popcorn! Wow. It really tasted like Thanksgiving. Then we got a Gouda "amuse bouche", which was very tasty! We both had fish, I hope the halibut special and my boyfriend had the salmon. Both were very good. The dessert of a White Chocolate ball with the hot caramel sauce poured over the top melting the ball was a visual feast (but was super sweet). However the view was 5 STARS! Wowza.

This was our third time to Altius. Food has been outstanding every time, but it is always a gamble on getting a view as it is a large factor in the total expense. One of the best places to eat in Pittsburgh if you get the right table.

My friend and I were in town for the Steelers game and we’re so happy to find this gem which was recommended to us by our Uber driver.

The whole experience was amazing from the service, food, and ambiance. Our server Jacklyn was wonderful and we appreciated her recommendations....we ordered enough food for 4 and ate it all. It’s was so delicious! Also, it was very nice that the gracious owner B came by to greet us.

This is truly a 5 star experience all around and I will definitely come back when I’m in town. I highly recommend Altius!
