This is our second visit. We were wowed the first time around, this time just so-so. The entrees were delicious as were the salads. Dessert S'more a huge disappointment with funky graham cracker cake, lots of prep but not much flavor coupled with a $16 price tag. The four of us who shared it were all underwhelmed.

Service was okay but tired. We had more warm contact with the young person who was serving the bread.

I there is too much going on in some of the entrees especially the fish preps for the bass and the scallops. Still the salmon was superb and perfectly cooked. And others enjoyed their meat dishes.

Overall, I think we were okay but disappointed especially considering the cost of the evening that had only 4 glasses of alcohol.

Great spot for the view, interesting menu, and fine if you are okay spending up to $100 per person.

Having a restaurant with a view usually means the food can suck and it will still draw an audience (looking at you. LeMont and Monterrey Bay) but that's not the case here. Altus can face an alleyway and still have an incredible draw thanks to both food quality and service. Food was excellent. I had the veal and found my first bite to be an explosive burst of flavor. The cut was perfectly cooked and the sides complemented the meal beautifully.

Highly recommend the Brussel sprouts as a side.

I had an amazing experience. I took my wife here for her birthday and they really accommodated my requests and enhanced our experience for such an event. The presentation for each meal from the complimentary flavored (changes daily) popcorn they bring to you at the beginning of your dining experience, to the complimentary goody bag they send you home with that is a heavenly bite sized brownie. The food was original in its flavor and presentation. We will be back again to experience more of that Altius has to offer. Thank you again for such a pleasant evening!!

My husband and I have been big fans of Altius for many years. We recently went there on a Tuesday night to celebrate our seventh wedding anniversary. We were shocked at the noise level in the restaurant-lots of drinking , large groups of business people completely destroying be classy romantic vibe we were used to.

I had a veal entrée and my husband had the fillet. We both looked at each other and said our food was too salty.
To the restaurants credit without asking they took both entrees off the bill.
I hope it was an off night and that the Altius of old re-emerges.

We were greeted warmly and felt appreciated from the moment we walked in the door. The service was impeccable with an array of staff.
The food was plentiful, inventive, and delicious .
It goes without saying that the view is spectacular.
The perfect place to feel pampered and / or celebrate a special occasion.

Amazing view of the Pittsburgh skyline and atmosphere, topped with delicious food. The staff was welcoming and genuinely nice in any way. Even if you ask the chef cook (who has probably better things to do) to take a picture after bringing out the food, they help you with anything and take their time for the customers. All in all, everything you could ask for.

I went for dinner on 01/07/19. Our waiter's name was Tom. Tom was very knowledgeable about the menu from the starters to the entreés. He even was well versed in the drinks menu. It was very helpful having Tom being our waiter to help us navigate the dishes and the sides. We listened to his recommendations and had a fabulous meal because of it. My favorite parts of the meal of course was the bread selection, the molasses croissants were fantastic. The entire staff was very attentive and superb at making us feel welcome and making sure we were having the best dining experience. The view was also hard to beat. It was night time when we sat at a window table and the view of Point State Park was gorgeous. The only thing that might have been disorienting or threw off the dinner was the lighting kept dimming and brightening at random and seemed to be inconsistent. Otherwise the staff and location were wonderful and the food was mind blowing.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday at Altius. The staff and management are excellent. My wife and I were meeting at the restaurant. She was running late from an appointment and needed a few minutes to get ready. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful to her. The meal, drinks and view were all incredible. We can’t wait to go back.

Our steaks were underdone when they first came out... we sent them back and they were still underdone. Dessert was wonderful, and they helped us enjoy our anniversary.

We returned to Altius for a special dinner before our favorite neighbors move away. They had never been so I was excited to share it with them. We have never had a bad meal or bad service here, the wine list is awesome and the view unbeatable. We had a perfectly lovely time, they thanked us and said it was the best part of this big move. Thanks for a special evening, it truly was memorable!
