WOW, the view. DO plan your visit for the night. Last evening we arrived as the Steelers were playing and the view of the city and the stadium was simply beautiful. Our waitress was WOW as well. Very excited about the menu...offered to customize any dish with the main entree and side. She spoke of the chef, Jessica Baeur, and... More

Altius is the updated former Georgetown Inn situated on Mount Washington. Gone is the dark wood and dated surroundings that was the Georgetown Inn. Enter the updated, bright, sleek Altius. Large windows that surround the dining area offer breath taking views of Pittsburgh's skyline. The manager and hosts are gracious and accommodating. The servers are knowledgeable, and not apprehensive about... More

The food, view, decor, and staff make Altius one is the most spectacular places I have ever dined. I ordered the duroc pork chop which was the most delicious pork I have ever eaten. Maria's service was delightful .... the view the best on Mt Washington ... And don't miss the creativity in their restroom ❣️

Despicable service. We came in with family who were in town visiting. We were denied service, even though everyone was dressed well, because my 2-week post-partum wife (on her first outing since before the baby) was in sneakers. She couldn't wear other shoes comfortably, but the staff at Altius couldn't care less. They denied everyone service and lost out on... More

The food at Altius is very good, but the view from mt Washington is spectacular. The staff is very attentive though some were a bit condescending. My husband was told to take off his hat ( rather rudely he thought). Other staff members, however, were gracious and friendly. The menu selection was unique and the food was well prepared. Go...

For only having one day to spend in Pittsburgh, this restaurant was an excellent selection. It sits on top of a hill that overlooks the whole city. On top of the amazing view, the food and service were great as well.

Altius is as advertised: stunning view, speedy and courteous service, terrific food, wide beverage menu. A romantic and scenic setting like few others. If ever in Pittsburgh again, it will be on the top of my list. Take a cab to the Duquesne Incline and remember to bring cash for round-trip service to the top of Mount Washington ($5 each).... More
