Superb Food to Match the View

Delicious food, creative presentation, outstanding view and highly attentive service - Altius has it all and is a "must visit" hot spot on Mt. Washington. I've experienced both brunch and dinner, and both meals were just amazing. You won't be disappointed!

The view & the service deserve 5 stars. The food not so much. We had requested a window seat when we made the reservation. There are 2 floors and our table was on the 2nd floor - corner table so we really had a great view. See the photos The service was impeccable. I noticed our waiter always keeping an... More

I've been temporarily living in Pittsburgh since December. I kept trying all the places that locals were insisting were so amazing: hipster, meat-heavy, trendy restaurants that were good, but kind of all the same (brussel sprouts on every menu). Nothing was impressive until I discovered Altius. Weirdly, the locals seem to look down on it. They think it's one of... More

We had such a great meal here! Bathe food was fantastic- no leftovers😰. The amazing windows are a highlight to a wonderful dinner.

Dined here at 6pm... watched the sun set, drank some great wine with an amazing pork chop! Nice selection of whiskey and bourbon. The soy ginger popcorn was interestingly amazing to start the evening with! I have not had a better beet salad! Go enjoy the views at this classy modern restaurant!

My fiance and I were with out-of-town guests. We chose Altius because we wanted to treat them to a nice meal while be able to showcase the city. Altius did the trick! The windows here are HUGE, and the view looks down to the entire city. AMAZING views. I highly recommend reserving a table at least a few days in... More

You can't beat this view of Pittsburgh! Altius sits on top of mt. Washington. The dining room has two floors which are both walled with windows. You start with a special popcorn and the most amazing bread choices. The are several amazing main course dishes and desserts to choose from.

The views from most anywhere in this restaurant are unparalleled. You can see up or down river for miles. We have eaten brunch several times here and you will find it worth the extra money to get the monkey bread and/or scones! Brunch selection is a wonderful deviation from any other restaurant and always exciting! The wine selection here is... More

Stopped by with my husband and another couple about 8:30 PM on a Monday night for dessert and after dinner drink. The restaurant is small but well appointed with a modern vibe and we were led to a table at the window which offered a spectacular view of Pittsburgh. We each had desserts that were absolutely delicious and cordials that... More
