LeMont Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We recently visited Le Mont for the second time ever and had a fabulous time. We were in Pittsburgh in June and went to Le Mont and a band there (Ian Evans Trio) played our song. The next day me and my fiancé got engaged. Le Mont holds a special place in our heart and both times the staff, the food and the view was amazing! I'd definitely recommend Le Mont and I can't wait until we're able to return.
Always a memorable event. As usual, the service was excellent. Tom, our waiter was awesome. The MD made it all perfect. The food was mostly great. My Red fish was extremely disappointing. The preparation was pretty poor. The vegetables on the plate were excellent...the fish was not....at all...I would complain about the size of the fish portion but since it was pretty bad, it didn't make a difference. Overall still a great place to have dinner. Once in a while, the entree us not what you expect.
Incredible, literally one of the top 3 dinning experiences I've ever had. The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious, and the view was awe inspiring. The only complaint was portions were less than expected BUT it tasted great so it pretty much evened out. The best part of the dinner was without a doubt our waitress, Denise. It was our anniversary and she seem as excited as we were which was great, she gave us advice for a happy marriage, and was prompt with our requests. BEST SERVICE HANDS DOWN.
We were seated early and our server was wonderful! The food presentation was, unfortunately, better than the flavor, which was okay, nothing to rave about. The live piano music was a nice bonus but the real reason to go to the LeMot is the VIEW, the VIEW, the VIEW! We had a window seat with a spectacular view of The Point. The restaurant is just a short walk from the incline, which makes for an entertaining evening.
The view is the best in Pittsburgh, but the food is fair to not good. We had out of town customers and took them for the view and dinner on a Tuesday night.
Service was not good, Waiter appeared to be busy, put he had only three tables, but the end of the day, it was Poor. The Maitre D was not any where to be found, but was in the tip section, no way!
The food was old and tried and plus poor service, will not be going back anytime soon
The owners need to wake up !!!
My wife and I had a 5:30 reservation (we're old; we eat early). Because of this , the restaurant was quiet for about 20 minutes when large groups started to arrive. Because of the LeMont's separate room structure, this never became a problem for us.
My wife had some form of salmon (she always orders salmon), and I had Raspberry Duck (excellent!). The accompanying potatoes and green beans were very good also.
For dessert, my wife ordered the Crème Brulee which she rated as very good, and I had a mix of regular & decaf coffee---superb!
Our only regret? We left without our doggie bag.
We live in Arizona. We have driven by the Lamont many times and promised ourselves that one day we would go in. And the other night was that evening. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings dining out that we have ever experienced. The service was superb. The repartee with our server was on the spot. We had the best seats in the house overlooking the Stadium, the Rivers and the City. The dinner was probably the best we ever had and we dine out a lot. The food portions more than ample and the temperature was perfect. We will be back.
The views in both the dining room and bar areas are spectacular. Our bartender was wonderful and she checked on us even after we moved to the dining room for dinner. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable as well. I had the lamb chops, ordered Pittsburgh Rare, and they were good. My wife's filet, medium, came out well done it was sent back and returned at the proper temperature. Neither my wife's fillet nor my sons room I had seen seasoning of any kind. The potatoes and vegetable were outstanding however not enough to compensate for the unseasoned meet at >$50 each. We are definitely going to return however plan to stay in the bar and elect to have dinner elsewhere.
I grew up in Pittsburgh and now live in Austin. We would go to LeMont for special occasions...back in the day of tipping the maitre'd for the view. I fondly remember both my father and stepfather (and a date or two) tipping their folded up bill for the view.
The view is still magnificent.
The decor is still straight 80's gold. Gold everywhere. I did notice that there is not the strict adherence to the dress code as in my younger years.
The food was good, not "spectacular" as it used to be. The kitchen relies heavily on sauces and the sides (sesame oil doused half roasted veggies) went uneaten. My filet was cooked perfectly. My french onion soup was delicious and my mother enjoyed her pork chop special. My niece loved her crab cake entree.
Our server, Beth H, was wonderful. We brought my nieces to celebrate a 16th birthday, a 21st birthday, and student council win. They were overwhelmed by the view (and the pictures for their social media) and Beth allowed us the time to let them snap away before putting their phones away and tackling the menu. She was patient with their questions and explained in detail. The portions are pretty big and if you choose to split an entree, there is a charge.
Will I go again? Most likely. It is a family tradition as well as a Pittsburgh tradition.
LeMont is a Pittsburgh staple.
It is worth a try.
Unbeatable view, attentive staff, embarrassing food. The view is terrific and probably unrivaled anywhere in the US, the ambiance is nice with older style decor that that would be super tacky if not authentic. We enjoyed every aspect about this restaurant except for the food. The price is what you would expect for this type of dining experience and view...if the food was anything more than average. Portions are large. Too large. If I am choosing quantity over quality I will go to the buffet, not here. Was shocked to experience this low quality of food at this restaurant.
Perhaps the best place for food while enjoying the breath taking view of the city of Pittsburgh from Mt. Washington. The food was good (on the pricey side of course) and the portion was generous. The waiting staff was very professional and attentive. The only thing on the weak side was that we had two cocktails, both were on the too-sweet side. Overall, this is definitely the place to go when visiting the city (our first visit).
We had guests from out of town, first time to Pittsburgh, so we wisely chose LeMont. Easy to hear conversations at table for four, good food, ample space between tables, no conflict with other guests conversations. Fantastic view, can easily point out many points of interest for those with only a brief time to visit the burgh.
What happened to this place? A number of years ago I used to eat here regularly. So many things were disappointing. First, we had a 7:15 reservation and were not seated until 7:50. Our table had container of cream left from the prior party at the table and some of cream was spilled over our new place settings. The waiter had to repeatedly ask what we ordered and when our entrees were brought out they were all wrong. When food did come out - much later - it was mediocre at best. Also, we ordered two desserts and the 20 minutes later were told the restaurant had run out of one of the desserts. Lastly, the bus boy helping our waiter would ask to. remove our plates when we were not ready and almost knock over water glasses when filling them. He also had food spilled all over his clothes. If it was not so disappointing, it was almost comical . No encore for us.
The view and service were fantastic. The mixes drinks were excellent. The desserts, particularly the creme brulee and cakes, were delicious. The rest of the food was unimpressive and disappointing ... and we ordered three different entrees. Our cream of asparagus soup was warm and flavorless. The mashed potatoes were crusty.
