LeMont Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.

My wife and I have dined at LeMont several times over the last 25 years. Unfortunately, the upscale atmosphere has been dampened by the newly relaxed dress code. The food quality has also suffered. Due to these factors, I would only recommend this place for the scenic views that it offers. The food, atmosphere and service have all evolved into just average and over priced.

The look of the restaurant was beautiful. We were early so we went to the bar and had some great cocktails. When we were taken to our table I was a little disappointed because I wanted to sit by the window but it was crowded so it was okay. The food was awesome! Great portion sizes and steak cooked exactly how I asked. And I usually don't order steak because it's never right or has too much fat. And of course dessert was amazing. This was my first time at the LeMont and I hope to go back again some day.

Pleasantly surprised. Hadn't been there for dinner in many years, it had gone down in quality a while back. We were there for the Restaurant Week special menu, and were very pleased with everything....first class all the way, especially our waitress, Beth, a real pro.
We'll be back, for sure.

Excellent service with a fantastic view. Went for the Restaurant Week special 3-course meal. All of the food was cooked well and of high quality. Flavors were average and portions were appropriate. Go for the view and the experience and the romance.

We had a 7 p.m. reservation. Arrived about 10 minutes early. Hostess asked us to wait in the bar as it would be a few minutes before table was available. After 30 minutes, inquired if our reservation was lost and was informed they were running behind because earlier guests arrived late. About 15 minutes later were finally seated. Made no effort to keep us informed as to what was occurring and were not at all apologetic about it.

The food was fantastic and our server was great! The only issue is that our reservation was at 7:30 and we didn't get our food until 8:40. It was very busy for restaurant week, though, and I do not expect that that is the norm.

The LeMont is a very nice upscale restaurant . You can't beat the scenery with floor to ceiling windows . A nice place for a nice date, maybe one of those pop the question outings, pretty pricey though . Look ahead at the menu to get an estimate ;-)

Waited till 7:40 for our 7:00 table. Service wasn't very good , the cheese broccoli soup was regular eat and park quality . The steak was decent , the mozerlla and tomato salad was decent and the creame brulet was very good

Was in town for one night and someone that had been there many years ago recommended. The view was great as was our server. Food was not good. In retrospect , we should have gone for cocktails and view and had dinner elsewhere.

Excellent dining experience. Our server was the best we have ever had. Exceptional food, drinks, and dessert. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our anniversary. Fireworks were going off at eye level through the immaculate Windows. Very romantic atmosphere. Little to no noise. Recommended to everyone.

I was with a guest from Brazil, four board members, and three others. We sought a restaurant with a view and outstanding food. Where else but the LeMont? One friend ordered the Rasberry Duck, his favorite. Amazing! Others ordered the Filet Mignon, the Chicken Caprese, the Cedar Salmon and more. Mine was a specialty: the Coconut Chilean Sea Bass. We were delighted with each dish. I dream about their sea bass; the coconut is the perfect topping. Several ordered dessert: creme brulee and chocolate mousse cake. But the best was the flaming bananas foster prepared tableside for the fortunate three. Mark was our waiter; he anticipated and fulfilled our every need. Dani, the maitre 'd, made our flaming desserts. She's beautiful and talented. The view atop Mount Washington is the best in the city (and one of the best in the world that overlooks a city center). This was the perfect complement to our business meeting. Quiet. Elegant. Great food. Indescribable view. Doesn't get better than the LeMont!

LeMont is like the Space Needle in Seattle - you go there for the view, not the food. It is elegant, lovely and a great place to go for the beautiful view. The food is perfectly fine, just somewhat bland and unoriginal. The prices are high, but typical for an establishment of this kind. Don't let me dissuade you from going, you'll have a good time, but if the food matters more to you than just the dressy atmosphere, look elsewhere.

We celebrated my wife's birthday. Outstanding restaurant! Service, menu selections, and the view were great. The only negative was not the fault of the restaurant. Cab service from LeMont was terrible. We waited almost one hour (with three phone calls) for a taxi.

Dined at LeMont with my husband on Sunday, July 31. I requested and got a table with a scenic view of the the Point and the fountain. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive and prepared my entree (tournedos of beef flambeed table side in wine and mushrooms--the sauce was outstanding and the steaks were done perfectly as ordered 'medium rare'. My husband's entree was twin filets with crab and petite lobster tails (langoustines). Though not flambeed at table, the steak was scrumptious and again, done perfectly--medium rare. We ordered a bottle of wine--petite syrah--which was reasonably priced at $33 and was quite tasty but then we are partial to petite syrahs. We both started with appetizers (brie with an almond and berry sauce of raspberries, blackberries, blueberries served with toast points--fantastically delicious; ahi tuna carpaccio--excellent); the appetizers were large and could have been shared. However, as we were not sharing, we had no room for dessert--and that is a crying shame as the dessert choices are huge and include some of my favorites--cherries jubilee, bananas foster, crepes suzette (flambeed at table side), souffles including Grand Marnier (my favorite) as well as a vast number of apres' diner' drinks including some rare ports (again, a personal favorites). I probably should have skipped the appetizer--and maybe I will next time--and there will be a next time.
GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE and I recommend going on a Sunday evening when the restaurant, kitchen and servers are less busy.

Fabulous dinner with amazing views! The service was outstanding! It is truly the best place restaurant to share with your out of town guests, not only an excellent meal and service, but a one of a kind view of our beautiful city -Pittsburgh!

Elegant relaxed atmosphere! The view was outstanding! You can see a beautiful skyline and clearly where the three rivers meet.Our server was excellent and checked with the chef to answer my questions for specific menu items. I didn't care for the carppaccio (seemed to have a strong burny(raw onion?) taste. The bibb salad was gorgeous(contained flowers) and had an exceptionally good flavor. My plank salmon tasted delicious although i wish i had requested for it to be cooked less. My husband was disappointed with the calamari(was greasy and not crisp)but he enjoyed the LeMont salad and thought that the sea bass entree was outstanding!!! I tasted it and agree with him.

We were greeted by the lovely hostess with a big smile on her face welcoming us. Our table wasn't quite ready so she escorted us to the bar and we had a drink. The entire dining experience was lovely. The view is perfect. And the music they play is perfect. Old school love songs were spot on. The decor is rich and warm. The food is delicious. One of our favorite new spots. We Will be back! Our server was Beth and she was wonderful!

The ambiance was perfect!! They put us at the end of the ramp at the window at a private table. They had my flowers delivered from the florest before we got there. They made my spouse a birthday cake that melted in my mouth!!

The view is absolutely spectacular. The food was disappointing. Our group had crab cakes ( ate 1 but couldnt choke down the second one) duck- very bizarre sauce. Couldnt finish it. And huckleberry salmon which was not tasty at all. For a group of 5 we spent $350 & ledt the majority of food to be thrown out. Waiter never even asked if anything was qrong w our dinner! Wont be back for quite awhile.

Beautiful overlook of the city. Arrived early to sit at the bar only to be disappointed by the less than personable bartender (had to reorder drink due to something floating in it!) Waiter was nice, but forgot to bring our bottle of wine until we reminded him and also forgot about our dessert that came as part of meal. Not big issues, they were easily fixed, but at this level of restaurant everything should be spot-on. With that said, the ambience was great (table by window is a must if you want to watch the sunset), meal was 5-star (Duck and Pork Braciole).

Very disappointed with the food presentation and taste. Beet salad was terrible. I would say canned beets were used and the greens were not crisp. My husband and I had the scallops, they were small in size and overcooked. The twice baked potato was even dry. Seems that the food was prepared earlier and microwaved. I had out of town visitors with us and I must say I was embarrassed. It certainly was not worth the price. Mike was our server and was very attentive and professional. We will not return.

The main entrees were tasty, but the sides were very mundane. Despite the availability of locally sourced vegetables, the veggies of the day consisted of carrots and soggy broccoli. The whipped potatoes were rather bland. The desserts appeared to be commercially sourced and not prepared by the kitchen. The rolls were tasty and bountiful. Live music was a nice touch but a bit too loud, making conversation a challenge.

View was beautiful service was wonderful. We had a small appetizer, I had a salad, my husband had soup both were very good. We both had medium rare fillets. Vegetables swimming in a sweet sauce. Fingerling potatoes outstanding. Fillets were rare not medium rare. They were okay, but not prime. House wine not very good. 2 wines, one beer, plus tip $190. I would not even have minded if all of the food was really good, but it was not.
