5. Le Mont

From hot dogs to pizzas, now it's time to move to some upscale dining. Located on Mt Washington, Le Mont is Pittsburgh's 40 year old tradition and is known for it's elegance, class and spectacular view. Their service is impeccable and the staff is just wonderful. High ceilings, chandeliers and big glass windows, Le Mont is the place to be if you are looking for a place to spend that special evening.

Voted Pittsburgh's most romantic restaurant, Le Mont definitely lives up to it's name. Soft piano music in the background as you enjoy the lovely view of Pittsburgh. It's especially lovely if you go on a clear night.

The food served is of top most quality and almost everything on the menu is good. Le Mont is famous for it's Raspberry Duck, Steak Diane (cooked at your table side), Chicken Milanese, Pork Chop Diablo and Veal St John. Remember to order their classic signature martinis, it comes in a shaker with ice. You should also try the White Chocolate Raspberry Martini.

You can get there either by taking the Duquesne Incline or you can drive up Mt Washington. Parking is free if you park at the Incline car park or if you prefer, the valet service at the restaurant is just $5. If you are looking for some fine dining with a magnificent view or somewhere to celebrate that special occasion, you can never go wrong with Le Mont.
