    We were there for my husbands birthday. The service was excellent from the hostess to the bartender to the wait staff. The food was out of this world. They even brought a little dessert with a candle in it. Also could not beat the view of the city. I highly recommend Altius for you next special occasion.

    Celebrated two monumental birthdays with a party of eight at this exceptional restaurant that did not disappoint! Reservations were confirmed via text and personal phone call, sat almost immediately, Chris our server was exemplary with his customer service providing details of all of the delicious items on the menu including two specials for the evening. The ambience is breathtaking with the spectacular views of our beautiiful city. The food was visually appealing, served by several attendants at the same time, well propotioned, perfect temperature with the spacing between appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts seamless. Definitely my favorite restaurant in the City!

    We had an incredible experience at Altius. The food, service and ambiance were all amazing. We were celebrating my fiancé's birthday, as well as our recent engagement and our waitress was so nice. She brought us complimentary dessert for our celebration. It was a fabulous time overall, and again, the food was to die for.

    The steaks were not cooked to order. It was very noisy in the restaurant. Other customers were not dressed appropriately, sneakers and jeans. I wouldn’t consider this fine dining anymore and won’t be returning.

    Secured a reservation because the restaurant was listed among the top 100 restaurants in the United States. Atmosphere is outstanding - how can you beat that view. Well spaced tables and really comfortable chairs are a huge plus here since dining is at a relaxed pace. Two of our party picked items from the regular menu, one of us had the fish special. The food was really very good, but it did not blow me away (perhaps the top 100 syndrome). Great drinks from the bar and a well thought out wine list. Dessert was amazing!!! The service was sublime. Overall, a great place to enjoy an evening in Pittsburgh.

    Our Anniversary dinner at Altius was the most outstanding meal we have had in years! We started with a glass of their featured red wine from Napa. It was amazingly smooth and rich. (We need to get the name so we can be sure to purchase some for at home.) We chose the Heron Point Crab toast for our appetizer. Such sweet, delicious crab on a toasted baguette for my husband and on a toasted Gluten-free roll for me! What a treat, as I very rarely get to savor such a fine appetizer. Truffled Porcini Bisque was delightfully enjoy by my husband, while I savored the amazing Poached Pear Salad. The chef also sent us a taste of her delicious squash soup. For our entrees, my husband absolutely devoured the Heritage Breed Tomahawk Pork Chop, with the addition of the onions and mushrooms--the best he has ever had! For me, I was absolutely thrilled with the Chilean Sea Bass with jumbo lump crab, fricassee of Chanterelle mushroom and Brussel sprouts, caviar & leek fondue, which the chef prepared on her risotto instead of the crepe, so I could enjoy it gluten-free. I finished my meal with a perfect cappuccino. We were impressed from start to finish. We will return to Altius!

    The food was amazing, my girlfriend had the salmon and I had the NY steak. The crab appetizer and the other offerings were also top notch. The waiter was very polite and helped us to choose a nice wine. A very pleasant view of the city. At the end we also received a small bag with a delicious brownie. Everything perfect. Highly recommended!

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Altius Pittsburgh, and the experience exceeded my expectations in every way. From the elegant ambiance to the attentive service, Altius proved to be a top-notch culinary destination. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the steak. Cooked to perfection, each bite was a savory explosion of flavor. The chef's expertise was evident in the careful preparation and impeccable seasoning, making it one of the best steaks I've had in recent memory. The sea bass was another standout dish. Delicately flaky and complemented by a rich and flavorful sauce, it showcased the restaurant's commitment to using fresh, high-quality ingredients. The combination of textures and tastes made this seafood option a true winner. To start the meal, I opted for the scallops appetizer, and it was a delightful choice. The scallops were seared to golden perfection, creating a crispy exterior that gave way to a tender, succulent center. The accompanying sauce added a burst of citrusy brightness, enhancing the overall experience. Altius Pittsburgh's wine selection was extensive and well-curated. The sommelier was knowledgeable and provided excellent recommendations to pair with each course. The carefully chosen wine elevated the entire dining experience, creating a harmonious union of flavors. The attentive and knowledgeable staff at Altius further contributed to the overall positive impression. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed, and the service throughout the evening was impeccable. The staff's passion for the culinary arts and commitment to providing an exceptional dining experience were evident in every interaction. In conclusion, Altius Pittsburgh is a must-visit for those seeking a refined dining experience. Whether you're a steak enthusiast, a seafood lover, or simply appreciate a well-rounded culinary adventure.

She was attentive, gave great food recommendations and they were great at accommodating my mothers gluten allergy. The views of the city are magical especially at night and restaurant itself is beautiful! All around great experience so definitely recommend especially for a special event!

    We are Altius fans but boy oh boy did they hike up the prices! Maybe because it was Light Up night? Caught me off guard. 😳 And our waiter had zero personality, never smiled and talked in a rather condescending tone. Was odd. We decided something bad must have happened that he couldn't shake.
