My husband and I love this restaurant. We go there at least 3 times a year. For my birthday, our anniversary and then at least one more time in the year. Love everyone who works there, and have never had bad service or a bad meal. Love that this restaurant is smaller than the others on Mount Washington so the... More

This is a must every time we are in Pittsburgh. The view is spectacular, as Pittsburgh is a beautiful city, the service is very good and so is the food. we especially like the menu choices as well as the drink menu. Make sure to get reservations and ask for a seat at the window.

We dined here one evening in December 2013. We were seated next the window. The view is great. Pittsburgh is a very beautiful city at night. The view was the best part of the meal. At Tin Angel, you select the meal. Pretty much everything else comes with it (salad, soup, dessert,etc). We had the wedding soup which was quite... More

We looked at the menu before we made our reservation and thought it seemed a little pricy but thought we'd try it anyway,,,, We walked out of there saying it was worth every penny and then... More

We had a large party of 25 for a business dinner. The view was spectacular, but that was all that was spectacular. The servers acted like we were imposing on them and we're basically miserable. The food was worse, it was horrible. No one even ate their dinner. It was embarrassing as there were people there who had never been... More

The view was great from this restaurant but the food was only average. Wasted the vegie boat because it was not appealing. The server had the same thing to say to every single table. She was not very personal about the service. Literally said, Welcome to Tin Angel, can I get you cocktails? Recited the dinner menu before giving us... More

Our dining experience at Tin Angel was very disappointing. We went on a recommendation and were not pleased. The service was slow and snobbish. The food was salty and the seafood was not fresh in any way, shape, or form. Even the dessert was bad. I love dessert and it can save a bad dining experience when done correctly. Walmart... More

I have been going to the place for many years. Got away from it for a few years and not sure why.So recently we can't get enough or stop going.The view is absolutely breathtaking! The food is top notch and the servers have been there for years and are wonderful. The food menu is pretty much fixed and classic. But... More

Had a great relaxing dinner with a spectacular view of the city. Prior to the dinner you got fruit and vegetables. We had several different dinners and all were quite good.

This restaurant has a prix fixe menu. On the day we dined there, the starter was a fruit bowl, followed by a humongous vegetable boat, which was extremely filling. The two of us could not finish the boat and needed to have it packed. For the main course there is a choice of entrees. We chose seafood platter and chicken-a-la-angel.... More
