Great scenery. Wonderful staff. Give them the highest grade. Food was very disappointing. Dry mash potatoes. Filet was dry and overcooked. Asked for medium well, understood...... but should be charred a bit, slightly pink and very juicy. I do it all the time on my own grill.
Everything else was great.
This restaurant has really gone downhill. We arrived a few minutes early for our 8:30 reservation with a window table request, however rather than asking us when we arrived if we would accept a non-window table, they had us wait until after 9:00 before even offering one. We did check with the hostess after 20 minutes waiting in the lounge and she assured us they had not forgotten us. It was about 9:10 by the time we were finally seated on the balcony which is nowhere near the windows. The food wasn't even good enough to be called mediocre. It was downright awful. We ordered the swordfish, which was tasteless and dry except for the sauce served on the side, and the stuffed veal which looked and tasted like frozen and reheated leftovers, and had no flavor whatsoever...plus the seafood stuffed inside was fishy tasting and below average quality. Everything on my plate was smashed together, another sign that it was likely reheated leftovers. The mashed potatoes were hard and not hot, clearly not fresh. The vegetables were overcooked and faded in color. The lemont salad and rolls were ok. The Merlot wine was very good. Our waiter Raymond was also very good and our food came out very quickly, again because it wasn't anything near fresh. I've been there several times over the years when it was much better, but we decided to quit going several years ago when we sensed it was going downhill. Thought we'd give it another shot since it had been a while. This time was definitely our last time. You're paying for the view more than anything, but the food used to be exceptional, while this time it wasn't even passable. We can get a view outside for free and get fast food that's fresher.
Very disappointed in the food quality. Given the expenditure, I would have expected a substantially better meal. The waiter recommended the chop and although the size of the entree was overwhelming, there was so much fat and gristle it was unappetizing and difficult to eat. The potato dish appeared as if it were created with an instant recipe and little flavor. I would not eat there again.
We celebrated my mom's 75th birthday and was so happy we chose the LeMont for the occasion. The service was great, food was good and the view was spectacular. We thank the captain for giving us a window table. If you order the French onion soup, it was the best I've ever had, but is huge and very filling. I wasn't able to finish my main course for being so full.
Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Always good food and great atmosphere at the LeMont. Impressive view too.
If you are looking for the best city view in the USA, great service and good food go to the LeMont. If those things don’t interest you.. go someplace else.
It is so hard to believe that after all these years as being an iconic restaurant with their view that they can't get a chef that can make food taste good. Just try the absolutely dried out tasteless crusted swordfish dish and/or the gritty poor texture fillet and see for yourself. It is so sad. I WANT this place to be better. The chef either smokes and has no taste buds...or simply does not test his food...or both. very disappointing. At lease the service, bar and music plus view were good So just go for drinks and eat at home.
Gorgeous view outside. Classically beautiful inside. Polite and accommodating staff. Delicious food. Special place. Gem of Pittsburgh.
Beautiful view of the city. Great food and great bar selection
We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate a special occasion. The food and the service were great. The view was spectacular.
View and Service were great. Food could be more imaginative.
Vegetable melody was plain and potatoes were stiff and dry.
The view is fantastic. The staff was very friendly and excellent overall. The food was mediocre to poor, sadly. The decor seems old.
Overall a fine dining experience. Ambience is very nice. Nice quiet place and view that is hard to beat. Food was good but not ‘great’. Osso Bucco was slightly drier than hoped. Wife’s steak was good but not great.
Service was subpar.
Outstanding service from Tom. We will be back!
Fish was dry and bland. The duck was overcooked, very fat and the skin was nearly burnt. The souce was very nice. Boiled carrots in sugerwater and salted potates were ok but did little to save the meal. The service was very good. The ambiance very nice and spetecular views.
Lemont was so delicious and was everything we expected from the food to the views it did not disappoint
This is a Pittsburgh staple. Older male waiters in tails, some table side preparation if you ask for it. WAY over priced for the quality of the food but the view and experience is worth it for a special occasion. The bar is absolutely beautiful. The crystal chandelier's are stunning. It's fun for the glitz and the glam but don't go to have your best meal ever.
Delicious meal and excellent service from Tom. Combined with the beautiful surroundings and exceptional view, a truly memorable evening.
Our waiter Raymond was great! Can’t beat the view!!
Wonderful experience as always, prompt service and personal attention. Ordered the lamb rack and was delicious and hubby has the steak which was done
Fantastic everything! Great food as well as the view.
Wounderful dinner, but unfortunately, we booked during a Penguins loss, so the noise level was higher than anticipated. Regardless, this restaurant has amazing views of the river & downtown Pittsburgh.
The LeMont was recommended by a local friend and it did not disappoint. Absolutely exceptional! From the moment the valet parked the car the service was first class. The food was wonderfully prepared and the views of the City of Pittsburgh are second to none. They allow you to relax and enjoy every course of your meal and truly savor the experience. Would definitely return.
We enjoyed everything. Unbelievable view and delicious food!
The food was wonderful and the view was better! We went at open and pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves. This was great because we had just gotten engaged, our waiter Thomas took great care of us in making our special day even more special.
The LeMont is an experience. The food is not "foodie" food but good traditional restaurant food. They have a fixed prix menu which is a great value. The service is great. Go for the view.
The service was excellent! Tom was an amazing server. He was very attentive to our every need. The view was amazing! We recommend this restaurant for those who want an elegant experience. We will be back.
Fabulous view, food and service. The Caesar salad made tableside is a wonderful start and the desserts round out just a top notch experience. This place never disappoints.
For my kids the experience was about the location and view, the highlight of the night. Staff is excellent but the food is mediocre. Will choose another restaurant in this location next time. Completely overpriced.
Friends of ours from out of town joined us to experience the Duquesne incline and an evening of fine dining. LeMont did not disappoint! The server was top notch and very attentive yet not intrusive. Our meals were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We were placed by a window (I had requested this) and the view was (is) extraordinary. The only suggestion the 4 of us agreed on, was to remove the Tv from the bar area. It reflected on our view, and quite frankly seemed out of place in this elegant restaurant.
I had my wedding reception there 11 years ago. We had a gift card to use up so we decided for our anniversary we would go back. The decor is beautiful and so is the ambiance but the food needs updated. I was not wowed by anything on the menu. We got the crab meat hoelzel and asked for a crab cake too. I saw one for an entree and asked if it could be served as an appetizer, the server said yes, we will charge you half--that was fine but when it came that was the most underwhelming $20.00 crab cake of my life. It tasted very mediocre and average. I had the grilled swordfish with rice and mixed vegetables for my entree. It was just ok. The wine was served in a wine glass thicker than I am used to drinking wine out of. Our reservation was late (9:15pm) and I felt that the server didn't take his time with us, it felt hurried. He was still a good server, but overall not the best experience and the food was just very underwhelming for the price. I feel that the Lemont is a great landmark and will stay make its budget by resting on it's laurels but in order to take things to the next level, the food desperately needs updated and freshened up.
Food was wonderful, view was great, excellent service. The rolls were a little dry though... maybe they're supposed to be that way, just not my preference.
My wife and I had out anniversary dinner at Lemont. Arrived a little early. Seated promptly. Excellent seats overlooking Pittsburgh. Evening views are spectacular from here! Dinner was wow good. Food temp was perfect. Steak was perfect. Dessert was perfect. What more needs to be said.
It's a great restaurant for that special occasion or when you want to treat yourself or that special someone.
The view is amazing looking across Pittsburgh at nigbt. The ambiance is great and our waiter Marco was awesome. I would highly recommend the lemont. It is a little pricy for our budget but worth it for special nights.
Excellent service from Tom, food was excellent, atmosphere and view of
City was great
Very dependable and classy! It is a pure glimpse of our great city's past and my heart is warmed when a younger generation is having special evenings by the windows. Great food...no! Very good food.... yes! Ambiance.... perfect! It is always a great night at the LeMont! I hope they stay there forever! And if they ever remodel, I hope they keep the elegance that we have come to love.
Must do restaurant when visiting Pitt. Amazing view of the city. Outstanding service and dining. A bit pricey but well worth it.
