We experienced a top quality evening from start to finish. The food and service were outstanding (thank you, Ellen). The spectacular view of our beautiful city was just the icing on the cake.

I had heard excellent reviews from friends. So when my daughter came into town we decided to branch out and check out Altius. We were delighted!

Fabulous meal and service. Everything was delicious and well prepared. We tried several starters and devoured everything. Entrees include a halibut and tempura shrimp special and a bone in rib-eye. Super good! Three deserts were shared and not a morsel was left. Very good experience.

One of the best views in the country with outstanding food and service. Price points have crept up, but worth the splurge.

Excellent!!!! - food was delicious and beautiful, attentive service, gorgeous view. The portions were surprisingly large - I am patiently waiting until noon to eat my leftovers- I’ve been thinking about them all morning. And although I was full from dinner, I am not sorry that we shared a dessert. The chocolate dessert was quite an experience! No dessert leftovers 😢

Dinner was perfect. Great table location. Our server was very knowledgeable and sensitive to my dairy allergy. The food was amazing. They even surprised my husband with a piece of cake and a candle for his birthday. Highly recommend

Great meal, attentive and knowledgeable staff, and beautiful setting. Personally not a fan of the rather stark modern steel and glass architecture but definitely a place worth re-visiting. Ala carte menu makes it all a bit pricey. Drinks a bit expensive too but you get what you pay for in this case.

Some food items not up to their pre pandemic quality. Salad so, so. Cajun fries with a steak, too salty. Not a good pairing. Otherwise great service.

This is the best dining experience it Pittsburgh. The service and food are exceptional, and then of course you have the view which is just the icing on the cake. From the moment you are seated and greeted with the always creative popcorn cone, the bread service and the tasty treat in between. Our main courses were delicious and creative. I wouldn't change a thing. And eating out is what I do best...other than cooking!

This is a terrific restaurant. Unfortunately, the night we were there included a table that was loud and obnoxious. However, that is not a reflection of the restaurant. It is simply sad that we live in a society where respectful behavior is so difficult.

When we walked in we were shown to our table on the second level. The view was beyond our expectation. A total overview of downtown Pittsburgh and the stadiums and the bridges over the rivers. Could go on but to the food which was prepared 5 star along with the service, ambience; this became my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh !!!!!
