Mount Washington not only boasts incredible views, there are lots of food options on what many dub “restaurant row.” There’s the traditional LeMont, Vue 412 serving American fare and splendid seafood dishes at the Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. Here are five of the most delicious restaurants in the neighborhood.
Modern fine dining is at its best at Altius, who boasts scenic city views. Start off with chilled oysters, then enjoy entrees like an Australian lamb rack. Whimsical desserts are available to end your meal, like a homemade dreamsicle pop, made with citrus cotton candy, orange cream, lemon olive oil cake, meringue, white chocolate and a crispy white chocolate cookie.

2. The LeMont
The LeMont calls itself “the place for special occasions.” Great for weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries, birthdays and more, the restaurant serves up big juicy steaks, strong cocktails and of course their signature coconut cake. For more information on the LeMont, click HERE.
3. Vue 412
The large, multi-room Vue 412 serves typical American fare like chicken romano with fettuccine in a saffron cream sauce. An amazing prime rib in a roasted garlic au jus and boursin mashed potatoes with seasonal vegetables is served Friday through Sunday only. For more information on Vue 412, click HERE.
4. The Grandview Saloon & Coal Hill Steakhouse
Established in 1992 as Pittsburgh’s USDA prime chophouse, The Grandview Saloon and Coal Hill steakhouse specializes in steak (of course). Other noteworthy options include a steak burger, coconut shrimp and a delicious ahi tuna steak with wasabi sauce. For more information on the Grandview Saloon and Coal Hill Steakhouse click HERE.
5. Monterey Bay Fish Grotto
The classic seafood restaurant serves unique dishes that are deliciously tasty. Items like a brandied shrimp tagliatelle with crushed tomato and cream sauce, arugula, shaved parmesan and white truffle melt in your mouth. There’s also a mean lobster mac and cheese on the menu too. Desserts like an amazing peanut butter and jelly trifle don’t disappoint either.
