Great Service, Great food, Great view. Everything on the menu is wonderful and different. They have a unique way of presenting their offerings and it is always interesting. When friends come from out of town it is the go to place. When you want to get together will locals you have not touched base with for a while Altius is... More

On a recent visit to Pittsburgh a group of 7 made our way up the Duquesne Incline to Altius. Many times when a restaurant is known for the views, the quality of the food is left behind. That isn't the case at Altius, and I don't say lightly that this is possibly the top restaurant I've been to in America... More

Way overpriced for the food. Service was good, but don't get there early, We had reservations for 5:00 and we were 5 minutes early and they just looked at us standing outside until 5:00. I will never go there again when Monterey Bay is right across the street, not quite as expensive and much much better food.

Service very attentive. Food was good, but not great. Disappointed in atmosphere. Restaurant review recommended dress clothes, no jeans, etc. Acceptable. We were happy to read this as we wanted to be at an upscale restaurant with high class atmosphere. However, there were quite a few diners in casual apparel. And no one was being turned away. I had the... More

The wait staff are incredible. The ambience is so elegant and the view is something special. I had an amazing chicken and vegetables dish that I was so sad to end. I would recommend this place to any family, friend, or visitor in the area.

It began with one in our group targeting Altius as a target via this site and since we had a group of TA aficionados it passed the eye test. I called to get particulars on a reservation for a mid sized group and was given the specs to relay on dress code and such. A couple of the husbands failed... More

My boyfriend took me here recently for our 2nd anniversary/my birthday dinner and it was amazing! The food and drinks were so delicious and the service was even better (if that's even possible!). Of course the views of Pittsburgh are amazing here as well even on the cloudy day that we went. When it came time for dessert, we ordered... More

This restaurant was recommended to us prior to our trip, and we booked several weeks in advance, a sensible thing to do, considering the popularity it enjoys. Food was excellent, service fantastic, and the views from upstairs absolutely wonderful. A recommendation we would pass on to anyone.

Celebrated a birthday here with my family. Honestly, one of the most beautiful restaurants in the city. The views of Pittsburgh are breathtaking! What they did with the inside of this place is truly amazing....modern, sleek and classy. Food is so creative. Delicious! If you are looking for a really special dinner, this is the place to go!
