LeMont Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.
As long as I've lived in Pittsburgh I have never been there. I figured that Restaurant Week would be a good time to try it. The atmosphere is wonderful and Denise our server was excellent. I personally did not care for my meal but this would not deter me from trying it again.
The service was excellent or server Beth and helper rico made it great. The food on the other hand, I expected more. I had peach poulet and it was very bland, the rice was very under cooked. The dessert I had to send for a new one because the funnel cake were extremely hard and dry. Over all experience was ok.
Excellent restaurant. Awsome view. Everything was perfect, includind the service, food, wine, etc. I do recommend it for espacial ocasions. The Price is not abusive and you have many cheap wines avaiable if you do not wanna spend a lot of money on it. This was my 5th time over there and definatly we Will not be the last.
We went for our 2 year anniversary and it was amazing!! Our server, Tom was so nice and made the evening so special. Thanks food was delicious, view was gorgeous, atmosphere was great. This is one of my favorite restaurants and the also had an amazing summer special going on. It was absolutely perfect!! :)
went specifically for baked alaska and to celebrate a birthday. told there was no baked alaska (possibly put on your website that people should pre order this- I have been here before and not had a problem). told the meals were small in size so we ordered two (steak dianne and a filet)- gigantic proportions so we could have shared. feel we were told this to $$ the place.
table side is nice but they seem to allow any!! dress code now. couple next to us was in jeans and we were dressed up. This place should enforce a dress code . desert was good but my almond cake kind of fell apart. happy birthday consisted of a candle attached to a plate. ??? we needed a cab and were pretty much abandoned to find our own way.
won't go back would not recommend really, it's a lot of grandeur but lost in people in jeans and a lackluster staff who gave us limited attention. good views. I guess go for desert in a t shirt and you will be welcomed. call ahead for the infamous baked alaska
Our waitress wasn't welcoming at all and when paying, she lost my bank card. Food was delicious but there needs to be more selections. There were only medley and potatoes for our starch/vegetable, everyone only had those 2, to get. For the prices, I would expect more variety. Amazing views but again, I was bothered by only medley and potatoes and no other selection. Green beans, broccoli, noodles etc. all are simple nice additions when eating out at a nice place. The views are the main thing you pay for. Request a window seat and you'll enjoy it.
We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We've been there before. It was very good but a bit overpriced for a steak. I got the special, & it was $65 just for the entree. I didn't ask the price before ordering it, & I was a bit surprised by the price charged to our bill! The view of the city is beautiful! We sat by the window & had a perfect view!
The service was great, the dining room is tastefully decorated, and the view is amazing. Unfortunately, the food is only mediocre. The menu needs to be updated to reflect the tastes of the 21st century. At present, the menu reflects a 1970's concept of high-end dining.
I have been going to the Le Mont for many years to celebrate special occasions. As usual the wait staff service and the ambiance of the restaurant were top notch, but for some reason, the food was not up to the usual high standards. Probably just one of those off nights.
