Very Nice. We shared an appatizer special. My friend had his favorite -- Red Snapper. He was not disappointed. The fish was cooked perfectly and a little spice worked well. I had Sea Bass with Chimichury. Absolutely wonderful! Portion was just right.

My boyfriend and I went for our 5 year anniversary. The view was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was so kind to us. We were gifted a free dessert to celebrate our special occasion. Would highly recommend.

Restaurant is lovely with amazing views. The food and drinks was good. The service was not great, all the waitresses and waiters looked so miserable and the one that served us was very hostile and moody. It really put me off. I would still recommend for the views and experience but I am not desperate to return.

This was our first visit and had an awesome experience. We sat at a window table on the lower level and thought the evening was PERFECT. We can't wait to return with our out of town visitors next month. We will definitely make a stop in the lounge...which is warm, welcoming, and has a panoramic view.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first time to this restaurant! The service was excellent, the food was perfection! Management was friendly and kind! We will definitely go back there the next time we are in Pittsburgh! Thank you!

Overall I'm happy with my choice of Monterey Bay for my wife's birthday however for the price I would have expected much better food, at least from the main course. The lobster bisque was excellent, great wine and cocktail menu, the service from Chad could be the best if not the top 3 of any waiter I've had; the manager introduced himself and was very pleasant/friendly. The grilled cheese dessert was unique and amazing. The main courses, scallops for me, whitefish for my wife, was just "good." a little on the bland side. The view of course was worth a million dollars looking down on pitt from the mount. The restaurant itself it very modern looking and beautiful. The biggest negative was valet parking... the woman who I gave my ticket to was not amused to be working and was acting like I was bothering her by asking for my car. Very unfriendly to the point of rude. If I pulled up to Monterey again and saw her in the valet lot, I'd drive past and cancel my reservation. She should be working the counter at mcdonalds, not greeting guests at a restaurant that cost near $300 for my wife and I to dine.

Visited Pittsburgh over the weekend for the first time and made reservations here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Our meals were delicious (swordfish and stuffed shrimp) and did not disappoint. Everything is priced a la carte so the bill can run up rather fast. The view was spectacular and we did enjoy a nice evening celebrating two birthdays. The restaurant had lovely desserts for the "birthday boys" and that was quite special. Thanks for a memorable evening.

Truly outstanding view and service was super! The chef's presentation was appropriate and demonstrated his appreciation for the taste and character of the ingredients. Would highly recommend for foodies who aren't budget restricted or on a limited diet.

Everything was wonderful. I understand about not being able to reserve a window table . But there were empty window tables , we were a party of 4 and was told that they were reserved for parties of 5. Which does not make sense, especially when a party of 2 was sitting at a table for 4. The restaurant was mostly empty and I felt that they just didn't want to accommodate us.

Management (Jennifer) and wait staff (Sherry) were excellent and made our 41st anniversary a real hit. Food was very good except Lobster Bisque which was fine but not outstanding. The Parmesan Halibut dinner and Crab cake appetizer was very good. Creme Brûlée' desert was also a real hit. Overall very pleased and plan to return.

Overall everything was perfect except disappointed no window seat availability and that was most important that evening. Called for reservations and told if available otherwise little bit of a wait. Never even got that choice when we arrived. We asked about window seat or close to it but sat us quickly. Not close. Even a little closer view might have been nicer. Waiter was excellent. Offered a dessert for special occasion which was nice. Otherwise an enjoyable visit

great service, outstanding wine list, the view is what makes the evening. the fish were great but the sides were served cool. I prefer the two side dishes to be higher in temperature. the deserts were brilliant - WOW!. We will return maybe in the winter to get a different view but will need to save up funds before we return. We enjoyed the dinner, the food was good and the view was worth the trip.

Go for spectacular views of Pittsburgh and the three rivers. Otherwise, portions are small, over-priced and unremarkable. The Ichiban was terrific, but two tiny portions. The lobster rangoons were also great, but only four came on a huge plate. The 8oz lobster tail was good, but rest of the plate was unremarkable. The "jumbo shrimp" were anything but. Tasty, but shrimp were small and crabcake stuffing was skimpy. Overall, great views, good service, but pretty unremarkable and expensive seafood offering.

I've been coming here over several years and the food quality deteriorates each time. I was very disappointed with the fish and chosen sauce and sent it back...it was too sweet. They were nice enough to replace it with another dish, but it too was below expectations. Two of my guests were happy with their meals and one other was also disappointed. Frankly I'm not sure if I'll return.

We went here for a milestone anniversary dinner and the restaurant proved to be great for just that sort of thing. We were seated at a table that gave us spectacular views no matter where we looked, their seafood was delicious, and to top it off, they gave us complimentary desserts because it was for special occasion.

Our server was gracious and had a sense of humor. Answered all questions and then some. Great service, great food, great ambience. One of my favorites for the wine and food pairing options.
Not to mention the view...all good!
