The view is spectacular! I got the Chef's Special-New York strip topped with crab and shrimp.
The steak was very disappointing...I could barely cut into it (it was cooked medium) and quite rubbery. The crab and shrimp was great! The service was also excellent...just did not care for loud holiday party in the room beside us.

How do I start dismantling this Pittsburgh establishment? The take away is: “stay way at all costs.”
LeMont started in 1960. In a city that has recently strived to build a foodie community, LeMont is an embarrassment.
The menu at LeMont is “old school.” This would be fine if the food was well-prepared, but it is not. My steak was so over-salted that I have not been able to drink enough water to recover my homeostasis. I may need dialysis.
Wine is marked up over 300%.
The bottom line: if you want a view and like good food, go somewhere else.
What we expected to be a special evening ...
What we expected to be a special evening was dampened by the poor food quality and service. For a restaurant that has fine dining prices the overall experience was that of an Applebee's. Food was not prepared as ordered and the sides were cold. The manager apologized for the disastrous dinner and credited our cocktails. A nice gesture however if a restaurant is going to catagorize itself as fine dining they need to be sure they can live up to its standards!

Wonderful as always, outstanding service, food, view. Quiet so you can have conversation, enjoy a cocktail and finish the evening with good fresh coffee and amazing selection of desserts to choose from. Great valet service.

My experience was absolutely amazing!! It was beautiful and the food and drinks were great. The staff, especially our waiter Marco, we're so kind and helpful also. I have plans to go back in the very near future.

The ambience was very pleasant. The food was outstanding and our waiter, Tommy Z. went out of his way to make sure our anniversary dinner was very memorable. Can't begin to tell you how great the view was overlooking the city of Pittsburgh. Excellent place and not overpriced.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Lemont. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful in choosing an entre. The view is always outstanding. On this occasion, we were able to see the Pitt vs. Virginia Tech game at Heinz Field. (It was also on the tv in the bar area where we were seated.) We enjoyed or food and will be going back again.

Absolutely fantastic. I went to propose to my fiancé and the maitre-d and waiters were spot on. Danielle and Bill were their names and they helped the event go unforgettably. The food was to die for and the atmosphere was romantic.
AND THE VIEW. GOOD LORD.
The dessert and overall dining experience were breathtaking and I will never forget my experience.

First and foremost I have to say of all the "above" the standard restaurants in Pittsburgh, my experience at LeMont was less than average. I spoke with a "manager" on 3 occasions prior to my reservation and was assured that dessert would be plate of carrot cake with "happy birthday" wrote in chocolate icing. Upon requesting the dessert menu our waiter took it upon himself to bring out a generic piece of vanilla cake with a pink candle in it assuming it was my birthday and not my husband's. He was obviously told some type of instructions but was either not told properly or was ignorant to the details I had arranged prior. After the first piece was delivered and was rejected I asked for the check since the surprise for my husband was ruined. The waiter then proceeded to bring out a second piece of the same generic vanilla cake with a blue candle in it. At this point he was not listening to the customer attempting to salvage his tip. The food was not worth the price either- chicken was dry appeared to be under a warning lamp for some time while my husband's filet was ordered medium rare and it was obviously under cooked for his preference also being filled with fat in the middle.
All things considered would not recommend or return.
Pittsburgh is thriving with new up and coming restaurants that surpass this dull outdated establishment.

It was a wonderful experience. The service was some of the best I have experienced. Everything was served perfectly on cue. Everyone's meal was perfect! The beautiful view, live jazz music and dancing really created a glamorous atmosphere, kind of 1930's movie. Lots of fun, even for my 15 year old daughter and her friends.

Fabulous meal, old school under the huge chandeliers & overlooking the city. The special was surf & turf, which was delicious (but probably should've ordered medium rare instead of medium). Beware the stuffed banana peppers are VERY spicy! Among the other desserts, they serve Prantl's burnt almond torte!

I had relatives visiting Pittsburgh for the first time and chose the LeMont for the ambiance and great view of the city. We were seated at a table by the window and the view was terrific. Our waiter was very nice and attentive as was the hostess who seated us. Most of us selected from the 2016 celebration menu. The food was okay but not outstanding for the price. I would come back again.

I spoke with someone from LeMont on three different occasions due to our business dinner meeting grew from 8, 10 and finally 12 people. I stressed that this was a business dinner and needed dinner to go well. With hardly any other customers in the restaurant, maybe four other tables on a Thursday evening at 7pm, they had only 1 server on our table. We were ready to order 3 or 4 appetizers but by the time we saw our server again, we skipped the appetizers and ordered dinner. The meals took a long time to be served and the manager never once stopped to ask how everything was. I apologized to my customers and would never again dine at LeMont.

we were in for duquesne 50th college reunion. my husband had had many a wonderful experience at this restaurant. this was not one of them. the ambiance was great and service as well. the escargot was awful which was sent back. the caesar was awful only topped by the dreadful rack of lamb. such a shame. i can only hope the restaurant benefits from this review since i rarely if ever give a bad review.

Saturday evening veal porterhouse w/seafood(2), duck with raspberry sauce( 1) was great but the salmon with strawberry was not to any of our liking. Potatoes were a bit dry instead of creamy. vegies were good. crème brule was good also. Service - Denise - was great, timely and not overbearing. The table/seating with a view was excellent. We had a great evening.

Went to The Le Mont for my three year anniversary with my girlfriend. Our seat overlooking Pittsburgh offered a great view. The food was excellent and there were many options on the menu. Our server was fantastic and took great care of us.
Would absolutely recommend this Restaurant for any special occasion.

The view from the table over looking the Pittsburgh Skyline and 3 rivers was simply awesome, I'm not sure you could find or ask for a better view anywhere!
Service was outstanding as well and the restaurant's décor etc. was first class all the way!
Food was good but in comparison to the view, service, décor and seeing that it is Pittsburgh's only 5 star restaurant, in my opinion the food didn't measure up.
Not that the food was bad or anything it was in fact good but I have had better for less money.
If the food had been like the view, service and décor it would have been an incredible dining experience!

Anniversary celebration with my wife. We had a great server and the view from the Lemont is amazing. However the food was average at best. Very old fashioned. If not for the view and our friendly server, it would have been a poor overall review. The view sells this place so the food does not need to sell it. The NY Strip had so much bleu cheese on top that it was basically inedible. My wife's filet was pretty good. The sides on each plate were an average steamed mix of veggies and some watery mixture. Chocolate cake for dessert was stale.

My husband had me pick a restaurant for my birthday. I chose LeMont because the online menu looked fabulous, and we hadn't had a Caesar salad prepared tableside in years. Although the food was good, the actual menu was very limited and boring, and the waiter informed us that they don't prepare Caesar salads tableside unless they're not busy. The waitstaff catered mostly to the numerous large parties, and as the night went on they paid less and less attention to our party of two. We asked our waiter to see the dessert cart, and he never did bring it. We finally just flagged him down to get our check and pay our $200 bill, regretting that we hadn't gone to The Carlton instead.

The décor and view are great. The food was good, not great. I honestly expected better since it's "Le Mont". Three people asked for medium rare steaks, all received medium well, which isn't acceptable for any restaurant let alone a nice one. They have a very nice $30 bottle wine list which is a great deal. However, we didn't get the wine we ordered- but I blame us for not noticing sooner and we didn't then say anything about it. I would go for the view.

They certainly have restored to physicality of the restaurant to its original grandeur, perhaps beyond, but you can't eat chandeliers. The presentation of the oysters was a culinary sin. Piled high with the chunkiest mignonette I have seen, the oysters themselves were bereft of flavor, I suspect they had been rinsed. The entree, a special, was a grizzly steak topped with crab and a bearnaise sauce. Unfortunately the steak, past the grizzle, had no color nor flavor. The crab was such an overwhelming portion that it overpowered the dish with flavorless richness. Other food observations were cooked tomatoes that hadn't had skins removed, a pile of escargot vs normal portions, an overdressed Caesar salad, and diner worthy dessert selections. Service was competent, but uniforms didn't fit and looked unkempt. At $125 per person, a very disappointing celebration, especially since there are so many wonderful alternatives in Pittsburgh.
