Altius is by far one of the best - if not the best - restaurants in Pittsburgh. The view is outstanding and makes any special occasion even more special. The service is impeccable, the cocktails are unique and expertly crafted, and the food is spectacular - both in its presentation and culinary excellence. Just know it’s a bit pricey, but worth it. After dinner, be sure to walk next door to the overlook for a photo op with this beautiful city as your backdrop.

The food was excellent! We started with the Arancini, which was very well prepared, crispy on the outside, creamy on the interior. My wife had the filet, cooked to her satisfaction, I had the Lobster Risotto. A nice bottle of Orin Swift Abstract which was very reasonably priced. Kristine was our server and did an excellent job. We will be returning again soon.

I ordered a dish Shawarma Hummus that I had ordered before and loved! But the dish last night was very different! My prior order contained many pieces of large chicken lamb and chicken but last nights was very minimal and shredded tiny pieces. Disappointing!!

This was a very special event for us, our 20th wedding anniversary. We of course wanted somewhere outstanding to celebrate, and we sure found it! I've got to rave about every aspect of the total experience; from being met out front by the gracious and competent valet parking attendant, seeing the really clean, classy restoration of the beautiful building as we walked up the entry steps, to being just "wowed" by the warm welcome into the modern and tasteful great room by the staff inside. Our waitress, Cherie, led us to our table, with 2 comfy overstuffed chairs, in front of a beautiful fireplace providing a warm, cozy setting. Cherie had sprinkled our table with flower petals and placed an envelope in the center with a very nice anniversary wish inside from all of the staff. Just a wonderful start to one of the most memorable, delicious dining experiences either of us can remember! Jordan Stasinowsky, partner, family member, restoration designer/carpenter and wine expert, hosts the 'Wednesday Wine Education' event. Don't miss that; it's fascinating and we learned a lot as we sampled different varietals from around the world while having fun with him and the group. The house wine selection is extensive, and Cherie made the perfect suggestions to go with our meal. My wife Janet had the beet salad and halibut. I had the "Beggar's Purse" salad and the pan-seared duck breast, Both were done to perfection, and unbelievably delicious. Never had better halibut anywhere, including up in Alaska! We finished by splitting the vanilla Crème Brule between us, so good it ended up being a "dueling spoons" finale. Jordan gave us a tour of all the excellent work that he, his father, and other family members had done restoring this magnificent structure, finishing with drinks in the large basement cigar bar that resembles a posh country club library with rich leather couches and a big selection of great liquors, competently tended by Mila. Can't say enough! GO!
