Monterey Bay Fish Grotto - Mt. Washington Ratings and Reviews
I was in town with out of town guests - and as always the Monterey Fish House did not disappoint. We started in the bar downstairs and got the corner table. For that reason there was no point in leaving so we ate in the bar.
The service was great and the food was also great - we had the Halibut and Redfish.
The view and the service was also good - would recommend and will return when in town.
The Grotto is famous for its view of the Pittsburgh skyline, rivers and distant hills and it doesn't disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed the seafood dishes: tender scallops, shrimp and crab cakes. The servers were all very attentive and friendly. We highly recommend the Grotto for the food and view. On the expensive side by worth every dollar!
Monterey Bay is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants. Since this was our 40th anniversary celebration, we were greeted with a quiet corner table at the window. Of course, the view over the Point was spectacular in daylight, sunset and in the evening with the city lights. The lobster bisque was outstanding! The crab cake, grilled shrimp and halibut were all excellent. Service was courteous, timely and professional. Our evening ended with a complementary dessert to share with a happy 40th anniversary message in chocolate on the plate. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was average, but the view was outstanding. The host at checkin was rather unfriendly also. The crab cakes were ok (we've had much better). My husband's redfish was not great and my scallops were undercooked. The brussel sprouts, however, were wonderful. The only reason I recommend this restaurant is because of the view. You can't find a better view in Pittsburgh!
Hadn't visited in awhile. Remodel was nice but that is where positives end. Young waitstaff is very slow. Menu options are extremely limited and the crab cakes I have enjoyed for years are now below average.
Cannot see visiting anytime soon and will not recommend!
I took my husband there for his birthday. Even though we were not right at the window the view was very nice.
The service was exceptional. We had a few dishes from the menu, but the best thing we had was the Lobster Bisque. It was delicious! The crab cakes were also exceptional. Compliments to the chef. Our server Brook(e) was very pleasant, and helpful in explaining the menu items. It was very much appreciated.
We will come again.
Thanks for a good dining experience.
The entire experience with this restaurant including making the reservation, valet parking, host greeting, wait staff, meal and atmosphere is superb! I highly recommend for any special occasion! It is totally worth the investment. My wife and I will remember that dinner for years to come!
This was my second time dining at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto, and it didn't disappoint! This is a great place for special occasions. Time your reservation for 30 minutes before sunset, and make sure that you request a table by the window when you arrive!!
They are famous for their crab cakes and the lobster bisque is definitely a crowd pleaser, but if you are trying to limit carbs (like I am), the Chilean Bass with a side of pancetta brussel sprouts is great. If carbs are not an issue for you, save room for dessert! Their desserts change with the seasons, but if you happen to visit when their carrot cake is on the menu, DO NOT PASS IT UP!!
Monterey Bay went above and beyond to make our night very special. We went there about a month ago for our anniversary and didn't have the best time. They were proactive and reached out to understand exactly where they went wrong and asked us to come back and give them another try. It totally redeemed them in our eyes. Our meal was spectacular on our latest visit and we had a wonderful time... service was outstanding. Thank you!
