Went here a couple weeks back, and once again, this place did not fail. The view from atop the mountain, or big hill as my buddy kept referring it as, is spectacular. The food is crazy good. Risotto was great....the pasta was great ...the crab, which my brother had, was perfect. Great atmosphere. Staff went out of their way to accomadate us. Good eats and reasonably priced. We had no children this trip, but kids were there...well behaved.

Altius absolutely cannot be missed when in Pittsburgh. We went because of the accolades and wanted to treat some Florida friends to the view, which is amongst the best the area has to give. I was pleasantly surprised with extremely high-quality food, and very attentive, professional service. Their "gimme" gourmet popcorn, and bread selections will get you going in a great way, and I doubt you will be disapointed from there. In our group we had steaks, lobster ravioli and an Alaskan Black Cod, all which were expertly prepared, fresh and served at the appropriate temperature. Treat yourself to a night at Altius! With abottle of red and a bottle of white we stayed under $125 per person including a 20% gratuity.

The view is beautiful, and the interior of the restaurant is very well done. Other than that I would not go back. In my opinion the food was borderline bad. Worst steak tartare i have ever had. Duck was extremely bad. Fish overcooked. Flavor combinations not up to par with the prices. Service was ok, but not at a level that matches the view, decor, and prices. Decent wine list.

We were a party of 8. Service was incredible. Food was outstanding. View of the 3 Rivers area from the height of Mt Washington was magnificent.
I had the best pork chop I have ever had. Each dish that our party had was equally wonderful.

Most exquisite food, beautifully presented... with exceptional service.
Not to mention one of the best views of Pittsburgh from on top of Mount Washington.

A great place to celebrate a special occasion, or to take out of town guests!
