Absolutely love this restaurant! The view of downtown Pittsburgh is stunning! My favorite dish is the bronzini with the kalamata olives. Monterey Bay Fish Grotto is an excellent choice for special dinners.

My fiance and I went there for my birthday, and I must say the service was amazing, and the view was even better. We have a couple appetizers, and we were extremely excited about the food. Unfortunately, we were a bit too adventurous, and we're a touch disappointed with the food. I was especially disappointed with the fact that they had no Lobster on the menu...when asked, it was out of season, which didn't make a whole bunch of sense to me considering they have fresh fish flown in...So if you want lobster, make sure it's in season. Other than that, the atmousphere and service was great, which allowed us to still have a fabulous time....and that's why it got 4 stars

The view is awesome, the food is great but pricey. Make sure you have reservations. They have valet parking.

The view is excellent too. You have to like fish. The choices you get to make about what fish to eat and how it is prepared make this place fun. All preparation and cooking is superb. This is a well-known place with high demand. It's the only high-end fish restaurant around. The servers try hard but the crowd wears them out sometimes. The carpet and decor could use an upgrade.
