Monterey Bay Fish Grotto - Mt. Washington Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I enjoyed the visit. Being from Erie and a Cleveland Brown fan, I got a new perspective and appreciation for Pittsburgh. It is a beautiful city.
We had the Bone in Rib-Eye with Blue Cheese and Asparagus. The Steak was great, the steamed Asparagus was OK. We prefer the Asparagus to be oven fried with olive oil and salt and pepper. Note: We had leftover steak for breakfast.
The bill was a bit steep but was expected. The valet parking was an appreciated touch.
Our waiter, I believe his name is Chad, was excellent. Personal, friendly, did not hover but was there to make our stay homey but special. He made our Dinner memorable and is the reason I'm writing a review.
We got there at 6pm and our table was ready. We sat at the rail on the second tear and the view was outstanding and the atmosphere was stylish.
I wish to thank you for the over all great dinner.

Brought some friends from Florida to our hometown. Monterey was our choice after going up the incline. The food was great. Our server Tom was great and the rest of the staff were great as well. It was our last stop on our Pittsburgh tour and it did not disappoint.

Though we enjoyed everything we we're especially happy with the sushi roll we ordered as an appetizer and the desserts we received at the end of our meal which were complimentary as we are celebrating our 50th anniversary. The food was prepared deliciously and search beautiful. We also really enjoyed the terrific macaroni with crab and lobster. Our meals were every bit as good as they have been for any special occasion we have celebrated at Monterey Bay.

The good is consistently excellent. The view is spectacular. Our waiter was attentive.
The music was loud, making it difficult to hear others at the table. We asked the manager
to lower the volume and he said that was not possible. It was clearly a fib and he eventually
did lower the sound. I am sure that others complained as well. An unnecessary aggravation.

The sushi was excellent. The lobster bisque was warm at best. Our main meals were good, but one meal, the pork chop, was literally unedible. The staff did offer a new meal. The dessert were outstanding.
We had to ask for bread and never offered a second cup of coffee. :(
Overall, we would come again, but am not rushing back.

Love the renovation! Food was excellent. Service was average and our server was slow to respond and clear dishes.
She also was very rigid in taking orders and inflexible. Still loved the experience. The manager was present and responded promptly when we expressed comments about things that could have been improved

You could go for the view alone. But the seafood is some of the best I've ever had and believe me I've had a lot of seafood! The fresh fish was amazing. The crabcakes were out of this world. The service was great. The music was wonderful. It wasn't cheap but it was worth every dollar.

Took my Mom out for a night while she was visiting. The atmosphere, the view and the food were all top notch. Crab cakes were some of the best I've ever had!! The staff was very courteous and welcoming. I will definitely be dining here again!!

We were there for my wife's birthday. The setting was superb with the great view overlooking downtown Pittsburgh. The food was a match for the view. My kids had generous servings of Suchi. The presentation was spectacular. My wife's crab cakes were delicious. I had sole which was flaky and with a zesty sauce. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing. Our dessert was delectable. Overall, everyone had a wonderful evening. We'll return. We'll recommend it.

I was dissapointed with the quality of the food for the first time. I love this restaurant but this visit wasn't as good as all our previous visits. Half of the appetizers platter was overcooked. Tuna was overcooked when served (they exchange it for one that wa properly cooked).

I have been dining at Monterey Bay since it opened. It has a wonderful view, and the renovation is perfect. The food, in my opinion, is not of the same quality. The prices are quite high for a piece of fish, as all items are ala carte. The much older, original menu was not only larger, but also included a side dish and salad. While I have no issue with the removal of the salad (nearly nobody offers a salad as included), going 100% ala carte to me, is not the way to go. This is not a steakhouse, and I would think they would want to provide an appropriate side dish to accompany the main dish. The lobster bisque was fair. The broth was not very flavorful, and for a fish house, the amount of lobster was on the small side. I had the skewered fish for my main course (2x)... it is an appetizer, that I normally love. While it tasted good, it was overcooked. We also had the crab/lobster mac. Lobster was again at a minimum, yet the price was quite high. I would go back, but I am not in a hurry to return.
