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.

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.

My food was good my dinner companions was not good. We received our meals rather quickly. Never asked if we wanted desert or anything esle, felt we were being rushed out door. We aslo were the only couple of color in the restaurant. Wil not be going back.

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!
