A recent quick trip to Pittsburgh landed us at the Fish Grotto. Great fish, great service, great place. We look forward to returning.

Although not blessed by an interesting location, it is probably the best place in town when it comes to fresh fish. Both fish and seafood entrees are delicious. In the event you care, be wary that the dessert menu is rather limited. Service is friendly and efficient.

This venue has a good view of Downtown Pittsburgh, the Service was Excellant server name ( Will ) the food was Delicious. We went a bit early before dark and left a little while after dark. The atmosphere was better when the lights got dimmer. Alot of the food is transported in for peak freshness. Overall was a great night out on the town, will go Back.

There isn't one thing I would change about this restaurant. The service is excellent, the food was AMAZING, and the view at night will leave you speechless. My fiance made reservations for our anniversary and and asked the host to seat us by the window (the "window" are basically the walls...so you have a beautiful view of the city) and he also planned it so it would be sunset when we went. This is also where he proposed to me... =) best experience of my life.

The seafood is great, but very expensive. There is not a bad table in the restaurant, but get there early to get one right near the window overlookin the city. They don't reserve particular tables. This is the only restaurant in the city that has waiters without a bad attitude and very attentive, some may find this to be annoying.
