Webster defines confluence as “a coming or flowing together, meeting, or gathering at one point”. More specifically, in geographical terms, it is a point at which two rivers or streams join. Very few cities have three rivers coming together and converging at one point. Most outsiders do not realize how beautiful the city of Pittsburgh is until they visit. It is no surprise that Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is typically at the top of the charts every year when it comes to the most livable city for a multitude of reasons. Its beauty, cleanliness, cost of living, kindness of the people, tons of things to do/recreation, and numerous other items make Pittsburgh a great place to live. Looking to take close family and friends somewhere for a special occasion and enjoy this beautiful city? Look no further than the LeMont Restaurant, which has been a Pittsburgh Staple when it comes to fine dining. It has a rich tradition of excellence, having been in existence for over 60 years. LeMont Restaurant also gives you one of the best views of the city, situated high atop Mount Washington. Let us explore.
The ambience… Upon arrival, for a reasonable rate you get Valet Parking, you will not have to worry about finding a parking spot. The restaurant is spacious, with a multitude of rooms including a lounge/bar, an area for banquets, and you can even book your wedding here. Pretty much anywhere you sit gives you a breathtaking view of the city. The décor is old school, classy, and bursting with character. It is a very classy restaurant where you can wear your finest suit or dress but gives the versatility of dressing business casual if you are looking to be a little more comfortable. A good problem you may face when visiting is you may see yourself getting distracted and soaking in the beautiful view of the city.
The food… The LeMont is the region’s only Five-Star Diamond Restaurant. This is a restaurant where only the finest cuisine is served. Start out with an appetizer to share. You can never go wrong with Lobster Mac and Cheese which gives you a generous portion of lobster with a homemade, rich sauce. The salads are creative, colorful, and offer generous portion sizes. If you are looking for a steak, the Strip Steak, Filet Mignon, or Filet of Ribeye are all top-quality cuts of meat cooked to your liking. They are accompanied by your choice of sauce to finish the dish. You can also get fresh seafood and poultry dishes. Their seafood specialty is Twin South African Lobster Tails which are broiled and served with fresh lemon and finished with butter. All in all, you are going to get a festive, top-of-the-line meal.
The service… As you would expect, the service is top-notch. Upon arrival, they make you feel right at home. Their servers are welcoming, attentive, and will make sure throughout the duration of your meal that they are always available and going above and beyond the call of duty. The management will also make you sure you are comfortable. Even though this is a high-class establishment, it is not stuffy, and you always feel welcome.
LeMont Restaurant Final Take:
MOST UNDERRATED SKYLINE + PITTSURGH’S STAPLE SPECIAL OCCASION RESTAURANT
As always, my final take… When people go somewhere that is high-end for a special occasion, they have high expectations. If you are going to splurge and spend a lot of money on a fancy meal the restaurant better nail it in all aspects. Bottom line, the Lemont delivers. Here you will get top-notch cuisine, excellent service, and one of the best views of the city in the area. If you ask anyone in the Tri-State Area, they have most likely heard of the Lemont. When in Rome…
