We were there for a business dinner and an out of town guest, and everyone had an amazing time. I am vegan, so eating out can be challenging at certain restaurants, but felt you did a great job making vegan options that tasted wonderful. The hostess was great. Our waiter was great. The view was perfect. The ambiance was great. We will definitely be back and I'd recommend to anyone for all occasions.

The breads baked in-house were a nice way to start. The garlic Parmesan was our favorite. My salmon entree was fabulously prepared! My friend’s Vegetarian pasta dish was also terrific. My husband was a bit disappointed with his filet Mignon, however, and said he’ll make a different choice next time. We were too full for dessert, but appreciated the pastry chef’s gift of a brownie each! We enjoyed those later.
Service was excellent, and the view of Pittsburgh and overall atmosphere made for a very special evening! We definitely look forward to returning.

The food is photo worthy and I wish I had had a camera. The burrata salad was ordered, cauliflower soup, the chef sends amouse bouche and a dessert for the road. Our duroc pork chop was huge and as tender as butter. The homemade breads were wonderful and our duck was something you don't see often on menus and we were very pleased with it. Chad made our evening special with excellent service. Definitely a winning view as well as wonderful restaurant.

What an amazing dinner. After a walk along the edge of Mount Washington overlooking downtown, we stayed on the very edge by being seated facing amazing views. The waiter Jeff offered us numerous extra tastes "from the chef" beginning with a zingy popcorn with a little sweetness. Best popcorn ever. The iced tea was the best iced tea ever. The little touches were carefully crafted and made it all special on our 31st anniversary date. The steak tartare was enough for a large table, yummy but I should have restrained myself. Ora King Salmon omg that dish was complex and superb. I didn't know we were going to do this and was in capris and felt underdressed. Dress up. This is a fine meal. Get some starters, make a full night of it, watch the sunset, savor the tastes.

The staff made our 27th Anniversary celebration perfect. We had the best table with the most amazing view. Dustin, our waiter, provided exceptional service and his course selections were on point. We were made to feel like family! This was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had! Thank you! The food was incredible!

The view, the food, the drinks, the service, everything was outstanding! We were celebrating our anniversary and had so much fun, which isn’t typically something you would say about a quiet upscale dining restaurant. And we couldn’t say better things about everything we ate... from the chef’s popcorn when you arrive to the complimentary to-go brownies (and everything in between), we haven’t stopped talking about it. We will definitely be back!

Just so everyone knows all the tables do not have nice views. So ambiance is ok because we looked at the kitchen and other dinners heads. Service was excellent. Food was good. Have a hard time figuring out the popcorn, pastry and bread to start the meal? Pretty carbohydrate forward. Bread was very good. Pork chop was nicely done not overcooked. Purple potatoes tasted like cookie dough. uh. Pasta was interesting with a pile in the middle surrounded by seafood? Not sure why the seafood was not mixed in with the pasta to give it flavor? Go for the view and try and get a table by the windows.

Defiinetly one of the best Pittsburgh restaurants. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. The noise level was higher than we would have liked, a challenge with the windows, but should be doable to make it a perfect 10.

While the food at Altius is always good, what sets it apart from many other fine Pittsburgh restaurants is the view. We were disappointed to get seated in the very back which honestly, makes it not nearly as special. The service, as usual, was impeccable but be warned that the dinner and the dessert menus, listed on-line, are not current. The vegetarian options are quite limited so we should have thought about calling ahead. We still had a nice evening, but it didn't live up to my expectations from previous visits.

This meal was a great surprise. More often than not, the view that a restaurant has can be a license for less than extraordinary food and service. This was NOT the case at Altius. The food was OUTSTANDING and the service, impeccable! This is now on my top 3 “go
To” restaurants for special occasions and just a great night.

I love this restaurant. The service. The view. The drinks. The dessert. The ambiance. The food is wonderful but I would love more vegetarian options. There are so many cool things on the menu I wanted to try but most entries are served with meat. I would love it if there were more options to serve the same things without meat. The chef is usually accommodating but more options would make this place even more PERFECT

We usually enjoy Altius. This time, server was rude & we felt rushed. Also, the food (scallops & seafood pasta dish) wasn't near the usual Altius wow factor. It was a disappointing evening. We'd come with friends for my husband's birthday. Some enjoyed their meals but all commented on the server. She was rude. One of our friends has a severe tree nut allergy. We made her very aware of this. He ended up sick after eating pesto from a steak tartare dish. She did not apologize, only claimed abruptly that the pesto did not contain nuts. It ruined his experience & expensive meal.

Altius just has everything down pat, from the bar, to the view, the service, and oh my, the spectacular food! My wife and I started at the bar where the bartender helped me select an interesting gin to try in a martini. She let me taste a small amount of two different ones to choose from...wow! For dinner I ordered the duck, which was cooked medium rare per the chef's suggestion, and it was wonderful. I have to comment on the special care they take at Altius on the side dishes which come with your meal. In my case the side was hearts of palm which had been rolled in panko bread crumbs, and maybe fried or baked, and then stuffed with pureed english peas. Seriously, I could have just had that for my meal, or an appetizer. Every detail is covered expertly at Altius. We are never disappointed.

My second visit to Altius this past Monday evening was excellent, just like the first. The setting can’t be beat. On Pittsburgh’s Mt Washington overlooking the city and three rivers it’s simply awesome. And since it’s next door to the Duquesne Incline, you have a perfect way to introduce Altius to your guest. We were greeted at the front door by smiling, effervescent Patty and Elena. Their approach and custom were so welcoming we felt like we had reached a special place. After being seated at a beautiful floor to ceiling window table, we were put into the graceful hands of Leila. Leila and the team of other handlers orchestrated a great dinner for us. Everything from the perfectly spiced popcorn pre appetizer, to the choice of bread and spreads, and wonderful entrees were exceptionally prepared and delivered with grace.

This experience will happen again, the next time we visit Pittsburgh from Orlando. Which will be soon; very soon. Cool city! Great Restaurant! And did I mention the wine.....

This is a must visit restaurant! Although it will cost you a little more here than some locations, the food, service and view is unparalleled in the city. Everything about our dinner was superb, from the appetizer, the dinners, the sides and deserts and the staff. This was our anniversary dinner and enjoyed every minute about or evening. You need to come here for your next special occasion!

My wife and I were in town visiting from Cleveland. We decided to go to Altius to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. We were very happy that we chose Altius. The atmosphere was fantastic and the only thing that could be the amazing view was the food! She had the pork chop with purple potato puree and seasonal vegetables. I had the 14 oz. Strip steak with seasonal vegetables and duck fat sauteed fingeing potatoes. The service was wonderful and friendly and the ambiance was great. Thanks again the everyone at Altius for one of the top 3 meals of our lives!
