LeMont Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Overall very pleasant experience, just felt a little rushed and then drug out. Our drinks and salads/bread came in good time, but before I was even half way through my salad, my food was being brought to the table. Once we finished our meals, the plates were cleared, and it felt like a good while before our dessert was brought out, and then another long while before we were able to ask for a box and get the check. So the timing of service was a little off. Other than that, it was an incredible place to be, can't wait to go back!
Both my partner and I agreed that our meals were the best we have ever eaten. He got the strip steak, and I got the sole stuffed with crab. We both got the asparagus crab soup, which was divine. The view was fantastic. There is not one thing I can say that was bad about this restaurant.
This restaurant is fantastic in so many ways. It is gorgeous inside and the food is spectacular. We were surprised the drinks were not too pricey but they were pretty average and a good portion. The food was also a good portion, but a bit pricey. The service was also great. Their only downfall was that we chose this restaurant specifically for their special they advertised on their website. The Special was a soup or salad, an entree and a dessert for $35, which is a steal from a place like this. When we got there, they told us that they just decided to take the special off for the entire week of Valentine's day. Now, we can afford to pay the normal prices, but to us it was the moral of it. Why would you advertise a special, and say it is available any day but Saturday or the holiday and then change your minds? To me this is poor advertisement and asking for someone to be let down. Other than this part of the experience the place was gorgeous, great view and delicious food.
This must be the most over priced restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food and service were HORRIBLE. The atmosphere is itchy - so could have been fun if anything was edible or if drinks came on time or if the music wasn't so weird and awful. The crowd is like an absurd depiction of Real Housewives of somewhere mixed with The Sopranos. No, take it back - hair, makeup and wardrobe on The Sopranos is far more tasteful. Some of the folks may be heavily influenced by the reality show Jersey Shore.
We took our daughter and family and MIL for a birthday celebration. Pittsburgh looked so beautiful from there. The weather was cooperative and the kids never saw Pittsburgh from there or ate here. We all enjoyed ourselves. Too many cakes for dessert. No Creme Brûlée, I was disappointed in that.
The restaurant's location atop Mt. Washington and it's décor make it worth going. The food is good but it takes a back seat to the beauty of the place. The wine list is also a disappointment for a restaurant of this stature. All of the entree's get the same potato and vegetable side. More attention and creativity needs to be put in place for this restaurant to achieve higher rating.
It was our 50th wedding anniversary, and we were very disappointed in the meal and won't be back. No matter what view or ambiance a place has, if the food isn't excellent to go with the inflated price, it's not worth the trip. If we want to see the view, we'll ride the incline. Fried potatoes were part of the meal that looked and tasted like they were day-old. The soup was good, the salad very average, certainly nothing special; Olive Garden has you beat by a mile in this. The duck was chewy, not crispy as described in the menu. All the staff were excellent. Do better with your food if you want return guests!
This was our second visit to the LeMont in two weeks. The first, during restaurant week, occurred mid-week and was basically a positive experience. This one was on a Saturday night, and the crowd was much more energetic. The ambience is lovely, a page out of the past, but the personnel, from the hostess to the waitstaff is sullen and clearly just "doing a job." Pride in service doesn't seem to be a factor and the customers are not so important. Our waitstaff appeared harried and tired, except for our charming water server. The biggest disappointment, however, was the quality of the food, especially in regard to pricing. There were six of us, and each of us was basically pleased with the taste of our entrees (the choices are limited), but the sides appeared to be "cookie cutter" - dried out, flavorless potatoes, some carrots and a little asparagus. There was no deviation based on the entree. It seemed that the kitchen plated the sides in an assembly like fashion, then added the entree in the vacant spot on the plate. In a foodie town like Pittsburgh, the LeMont is hardly a player. My husband ordered the special of filets with shrimp on top. No price was offered, and it turned out to be well over $60. While it was good, it was not that good. We won't be going back there for a long time.
The food was a little disappointing given the price. Quinoa side dish was bland, carrot cake was dry. Presentation of desserts was so-so. We were celebrating a birthday and the view was great for an out of town guest, but Monterey Bay would have been a tastier choice.
You are paying for the view. The duck is absolutely fabulous. Our $50 entrees were served with carrots and potatoes that tasted like instant. Completely bland and flavorless. Some garlic, pepper, butter... anything would have been appreciated. Again the duck was fabulous. Service is basic.
The view was great and the food was ok, not great not bad, but our biggest complaint was the service. We were served our main course while only being half way through our salads, and then didn't see our waitress the rest of the night except when she walked by our table to tell a bus boy to take care of us. For the money we spent, there are better places in Pittsburgh to go
I will not be going back to the The LeMont
Vegetables were plain steamed vegetables, no seasoning
Potatoes had no flavor, I make mashed cauliflower with more flavor. My boyfriend loves potatoes, mashed, all things carbs and he took one bite
Steak tasted like it sat for a bit before coming to the table and lacked flavor, anyone with little to no cooking experience could have served it
The menu online is completely outdated. The menu at the restaurant is about half the size. There were two items I had looked forward to and both were not available. I was advised that I could try to figure something out to suggest to the chef. I gave some things I liked but landed looking at the menu again with no given recommendations. I ended up getting sea bass with a frangelica glaze. The sea bass was again poorly seasoned and lacked flavor. However the frangelica sauce was delicious.
When we arrived no one was at the front to greet us we stood around for 10 mins and finally the ladies taking coats asked if had been helped. They then found someone to seat us. When the last two remaiing guest showed we had to meet them at the front as they too waited for someone to greet them. We had to ask for a wine list one was nor provided. Out waiter was more concerned about playing on his cell then us. The rolls had been hard and dry, and the food temp was warm. I am thankful that I went during restaurant week and did not pay full price. It was not worth full price.
The LaMont is an experience. The view is breathtaking and the ambiance is gorgeous however the meal was not good. I had the surf and turf. The shrimp and steak were not worth the price. The steak was a bland and fatty. The shrimp was also bland. The mashed potatoes were good however and the salad was made of greens and not iceberg which is a plus in my book. If you want to experience the restaurant I suggest you visit during restaurant week. You can experience the view and ambiance with out paying too much for the poor quality food.
Our dinner at the LeMont occurred during restaurant week. Every entree on the menu was $35.17. While choices were limited in number there was a good variety. We dined on shrimp stuffed with boursin and wrapped in prosciutto, pork tenderloin, and sole stuffed with crabmeat. Each of us was exceptionally pleased with the main course, though the sides were unimaginative and not particularly complimentary. Service was attentive, but lacking in the finesse one might expect for a restaurant with such an opulent decor. Soup and salad were extra charges, but also were quite tasty and reasonably priced. The view is spectacular. It was a rainy Wednesday night so the dining room was not that crowded, making conversation very easy. We will definitely return.
I came into Pittsburgh to visit my mom and made a reservation at LeMont. We had a delicious cocktail at the beautiful bar. Both of us enjoyed our dinners very much. I had sole stuffed with crab imperial and my mom had a veal dish. Wonderfully prepared and 2 dishes I wouldn't attempt at home. For me, that's one of the things those of us who love to cook enjoy about dining out. Our server, Tom, was excellent; always seemed to be around if we had a question and gave us plenty of space.
We enjoyed dinner at Le Mont. It was a great chance to see what the life style of rich people are like. I would probably not able to afford the food if it were not for the reimbursement from my institution. Though the food was night, it was the view, atmosphere and posh-ness that earned the price tag.
We were showing an out-of-towner our fabulous Pittsburgh at night, so made a reservation at LeMont. It was much as I remembered (and expected)...a little pricey because of the real estate, but good to very good food. We had excellent service (Beth, who I understand has worked there a long time - request her as your server!), but we did experience a problem with one of the four diners' meals. I won't go into the details, but it was a kitchen mistake, which really was a health code issue. Beth addressed the issue quickly and gave us a credit for one of our desserts. After thinking about how this could have turned out, I called and spoke to the manager a couple of days later. I asked for nothing, just wanted her to know that this incident had happened and needed to be addressed with the kitchen. The manager volunteered to follow up with me by the end of that week (promised me she would call - I did not request the follow up). I was actually disappointed when I never received the call, and I now doubt that she took my complaint very seriously. Although I would go to LeMont again, I will closely inspect my meal when it is placed on the table.
The LeMont is a scenic landmark restaurant with a long standing reputation as one of the great special occasion locations in Pittsburgh. This truly is a fine dining establishment. The holiday menu was tasty and well-priced, and offered a great selection with large portions. The view is fabulous; most tables are set near wide windows and allow for a panorama of city lights. Certainly worth a return visit for all special occasions!
We had a wonderful dinner at the LeMont Restaurant after seeing the PBT Nutcracker. Beth was our server and very nice and explained the menu and other options well. We also had a young man that kept our water glasses filled to the brim. We had our granddaughters with us and I thought the LeMont was very accommodating with their meals. Beth mentioned that if the girls (9 and 11) did not see anything to their liking on the main menu we could order them buttered noodles, pasta with marinara, fried shrimp, a smaller size filet and several other options which I cannot recall. (I thought that was wonderful considering the status of this restaurant). The girls opted for the fried shrimp and enjoyed it very much. Overall it was a wonderful experience. Thank you LeMont!
