What a great restaurant! Great appetizers and the lavender honey bread served with the butter and tomato spreads were great. My wife’s steak was good - however I ordered the special aged beef for $55 and I had a bad cut of it - connective tissue throughout it. The potato side/carrots/Brussels sprouts were great - but the steak was not worth what I spent - manager gave us a dessert to take home for free, which was very small but very tasty. I wish I would of had a good cut of steak to take or waive my plate fee but this was not the case.
Service is impeccable . We have been there several times and on each occasion I did not like my entree. Yesterday, I had a special with shrimp and scallops covered in a heavy mushroom sauce. Underneath was a paella. The presentation was great but I just did not like it much. Others might rave about it.
Was there with colleagues from all over the country and was able to get a front table near the window. The city was showing off her beauty and with the ambiance and service, it was a lovely evening.
Spectacular view. Food presentation was excellent, food itself was solid but not amazing. Would try again.
Altius is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. More accurately, it's one of my favorite restaurants...and it, most fortunately, happens to be in Pittsburgh. From the creative and delicious cuisine to the impeccable service to one of the best views on the planet, Altius is always a wonderful experience....culinarily and otherwise. The delicious "extras" that are always included at various points throughout the dining experience only make a great night that much more special. I will certainly be back...again and again.
Great destination restaurant with a fabulous view. Menu is interesting, food is good and prices are not too bad.
This place is always fantastic. Thanks for another wonderful time!
Exceptional service by a very friendly and knowledgeable staff made the excellent food in a beautiful ambience, and spectacular view of Pittsburgh, a memorable evening.
Just love Altius! It is a beautiful atmosphere with delicious food! Patty is so organized and this restaurant runs beautifully. Service is great too and my husband and I think this is one of the absolute best restaurants in Pittsburgh. I can't wait to go back again!
Amazing, Altius is a dinner experience we will remember and appreciate. Our server Maria made our evening memorable and she was very helpful with input about the food. We were thrilled with our choices, I had scallops and my husband had the pork chop. The food is superb and the view is wonderful too! The staff works well together, they truly seem to be a cohesive team.
Had an awesome time celebrating our engagement at Altius! Spectacular food, great service, and one of the best views over the city!
Great Service with outstanding selections. You can’t beat the view.
We frequent the restaurant and have never had a bad meal. Service is always excellent. We will be back in May for a birthday dinner.
My husband and I dined here on a recommendation from a friend that lives in the area. ( we were in Pittsburgh for the weekend) . It was fantastic .... Food, service, view, drinks!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would highly recommend it and would return the next time we are in town!!!
FABULOUS MEAL, from start to finish! It’s been years since we’ve had a meal of this caliber! And it wasn’t just the food that was exemplary. It was the care of the service. We were spoken to by name by the hostess and the server, on entering and leaving. The manager introduced himself to us. The whole experience was impeccable!
We had a wonderful meal. Each staff member, from the valet to the front desk to the wait staff and the evening manager, all were sincere, attentive and friendly. The food however was absolutely outstanding. Everything we ordered and everything they brought, including the breads, the amuse bouche and the thank you sweet to take home.....all were amazingly good. And of course, the there is gleaming view of the city.
Anxiety service by Chad, delicious food, great view
By far, the best dinner out I've had in this city. Exceptional staff and service, phenomenal food, and the best view of the city you'll find. They fulfilled every request I made in advance for my date's birthday without question and went above and beyond for us.
What an amazing dining experience. Service was spectacular. Views of the city are amazing. Atmosphere was quaint, personal, romantic and comfortable. But most of all the food was off the charts. Execution was exceptional. All the flavors were balanced, textures were amazing. The quality of the food was some of the finest food I have ever eaten. For a foodie it is a destination that is required dining!!
I will recommend that restaurant to everyone rather it a romantic affair or business best place to be from service to the food A+
My husband and I felt the food was not that great for the price. My duck (requested medium rare was very rare) and his scallops - more raw than cooked were a disappointment. Being a special occasion, did not make a fuss - took leftovers home to cook more before eating. Cocktails , wine and view were very nice.
This was the first time I'd been to Altius and I'll probably go back.
The valet parking cheap and the valets were attentive. We arrived on time for our reservation and they had a table for us. Do not bother trying to get a window if you reserve online. After being seated we got to watch the table next to us fight with the greater, the waiter, and the general manager to get a window seat. The GM caved and they got moved to the window seat.
The appetizers were OK. The popcorn was a nice novelty and the breads were solid. The mains were OK. The best part was the duck-fat potatoes and the steamed veg. My steak was middle-of-the-road, leaving me to wish I'd ordered the Cauliflower steak instead. My companion enjoyed the fish, and the risotto was well prepared. The best part of the meal was the amuse. It was a pureed cauliflower shooter and quite good. The flavor balance and texture was very interesting and the plating for it quite novel.
The thing that saved it (and what will bring me back again) was the deserts. Their pastry chef is a genius.
All in, don't worry about the dress code (it didn't appear to be enforced), sit at the bar and skip to desert.
77th Birthday celebration for my mother
Birthday dinner for my mother. Food and staff were great.
This was around my 10th time dining at Altius. I have yet to have a bad meal or experience when I have chosen to dine with them. I appreciate the consistency and product they provide.
4th time we visited
Amazing food, exceptional service, atmosphere is amazing!
Took the kids since it was a birthday dinner for me...they even split their dinner and changed their sides to make it more kid friendly!
As always , a great evening. We love this place and the staff makes us feel welcome and comfortable. The food is always a home run.
Dinner was amazing. The view, the service, the food-all excellent! We had a great time!
Best restaurant in Pgh! Service is fantastic without being too hovering or feeling rushed. Food is amazing with a lot of extras. Highly recommend!!
Wonderful dining experience, excellent views of the city!
Service was great and the food was top notch.
Everything was awesome. We will be back for sure and will tell our family and friends to do the same.
Our overall experience was wonderful. The food was beyond delicious and the service was great. The only down side to experience was that the fire alarm kept going off, and was ear piercing for about 15-20 minutes before it could be turned off. I think this was probably just a random thing, so I would not let that ruin our opinion of the restaurant and will go back again.
Fabulous Views - wonderful food, atmosphere. Everything was lovely. The only *quirk* was the smoke detector. It went off for 10-20 minutes NON stop during our meal - which definitely took away from the experience. I'm sure it's not the restaurants fault, but it definitely changed the "vibe".
We are considering hosting a Grad Party here next year for our Class of 2019 graduate.
Incredible experience. Food was amazing Jacklyn was great!
The food was very average - not great! Service was attentive. Not a good value for the price!!! Probably will not go back except perhaps for cocktails with out of town friends.
Wonderful experience. Exceeded our expectations. The best meal we've had in Pittsburgh for quite awhile. Keep it up! And loved the little "take away" bags.
Took my boyfriend to Altius to celebrate his birthday... It was spectacular! We got there early, like 6 pm to be sure we got a window table...as they don't hold them (but good view from everywhere). The scenery was excellent of course, great place to take out-of-towners. We loved the free foods they gave us...their gourmet popcorn was the best ever! Our waitress Lyla was excellent as well as all the others who waited on us every so often! She recommended the 'local' favorite 'Pork chop'... which was OUTSTANDING! The best we ever tasted! I had the special, which was swordfish (the best ever), shrimp, scallop, clam and mussel in shells, over risotto, with broccoli. Beautiful presentation...both entrees! The pork chop was very thick and tender and was on the bone. Purple smashed potatoes, green beans and carrots came with it. No real need for other side dishes. But we did have a house salad - good - average, and lobster bisque - good, not great... Since it was his birthday, they presented him with a free treat: assortment of candies/strawberries/raspberries.... very good! They gave us each a free choc. chip cookie to take home. It was dark by the time we left, so pretty to see the city at night as well as during the day! Top-notch restaurant! VERY expensive though for the average person... but we would highly recommend to our friends for special occasions! Thank you Altius!
Probably the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. Staff was amazing, food was unbelievable, and the view was awesome...I'm running out of superlatives. I especially appreciated the gluten free options. Definitely recommend the pork chop!
Wonderful dinner. Everyone was great from the valets to the coat check. Dustin our server was stellar and very knowledgeable. Amazing wine selection and thoughtful menu. Will be back.
