Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews

Went for a dinner date. We were seated in the room overlooking the river with a great view of the city which was very nice. We ordered a special that was being offered for the Pitt restaurant week. The salads we got were wilted and nothing special but the rest of the food was good. Overall it was a nice experience but it was expensive.

My daughter had a special friend visiting who had never been to Pittsburgh and we were "showing off" our beautiful city to him - we went up to Mt. Washington and came to the Grand Concourse for Sunday brunch. Nothing beats the atmosphere at the Grand Concourse for relaxed elegance! The building is so rich in Pittsburgh history and harkens back to a different time! We had a table with a beautiful view of the city, which our guest appreciated very much! The food was superb, and there were so many options- it was really incredible! Such a treat!!!! Our server was lovely and we never felt rushed ...we felt quite welcome to stay and savor our time together, the delicious food, and the beautiful setting. It doesn't get much better than this! While brunch is a little on the "expensive side," it is worth every penny- especially for a special treat!!!!

The Grand Concourse offered a pre fix menu for Pittsburgh Restaurant Week. The features were creative with 3 options in each category, appetizer/salad, entree and dessert.
I had a salad, the salmon entree and the orange glazed butter cake. Our guests had some of the other options, butternut squash ravioli and Charlie's chowder. The food was presented well and the service was exceptional.
I was most impressed with the fact that they let my husband and I split the prefix menu. He did order soup and we did tip accordingly.
We will go back, especially with guests. The place was busy, the food was very good and the atmosphere is impressive

We were really looking forward to having dinner and celebrating a family birthday. The view was beautiful. The Service was slow and poor. Dining room was very loud and table conversation was difficult. Food was dry and overcooked. Would not recommend.

$150 to wait 2 hours for our food. The server said that it was taking "longer than usual" and brought us soup to apologize. We didn't want soup. It was our first time here and we were celebrating our tenth anniversary. We were there for almost 3 hours. Other tables had come and gone before we even got our meal. It was horrible, unacceptable, and not at all what I consider fine dining.

Service during Restaurant Week was not outstanding - server forgot to bring us bread, couldn't figure out what drinks weren't available, etc. She tried to take our plates before we were done, despite there being empty tables available (no need to kick us out!). The kitchen ran out of restaurant week dishes and the bar ran out of drinks on their cocktail menu, which certainly happens, but was indicative of not-great planning. In particular, the dessert replacement we received was disappointing and served very strangely. I'm sure they'll plan better next time!

It took nearly 3 hours to get through our meal. Our soup and salad plates were not cleared when dinner arrived. Main courses and desserts were not flavorful, seafood did not seem fresh and not once did anyone drop by to check on us while we were eating.

Have not been here in years. Went for restaurant week. Enjoyed the bar. Service was outstanding. Bar tender was friendly started conversation. Felt nice being able to converse with someone until my party arrived. Plus she made excellent drinks. Dinner was enjoyable food was great. We all had a wonderful time. And that waiter was fantastic. We are all planning to get together again at the restaurant. Thanks for great experience.

We were there for Sunday Brunch. The food was plentiful and delicious! There was a wide variety that satisfied everyone's taste. It was nice to sit in the River Room, not too noisy. The only complaint was that it was very tight seating.

Travel to this place once a year to have brunch with family over the holiday season.
The architecture of this building provides a great atmosphere and they have tables available next to the river so you can eat inside with a view in the middle of winter. There are plenty of food choices and some items are exceptionally tasty. Lots of simple sides, but it's missing something in regard to the entrée offerings, like maybe they could add a vegetable lasagna or a more hearty, complicated dish.

I have chosen the grand concourse for New Years brunch many times before but this time it was ok. It was not the best visit. It was busy and there where many empty platters on the buffet. Being there at noon it was disappointing.

Came for New Year's Day brunch buffet. Lots of good and abundant food options, with fresh omelet and pancake/waffle bar at a reasonable price. Can get a bit crowded, but the seating is comfortable and wait staff very efficient.

Been to the Grand Concourse Sunday Brunch a number of times. This recent visit, New Year's Day (01/01/17), I took our entire family and a few of their significant others for a party of 10. The brunch was amazing as expected! However, this was the first time I have experienced average, to slightly below average service. Our server seemed to be having an off day in my opinion. She seemed to be lacking any enthusiasm / personality that made us feel welcome. Most of my guests had never been to the Grand Concourse before and I would have expected the server to ask and to help explain the layout. I personally cleared a few dishes from the table to create more room for new plates (something I have never done anywhere, but we didn't have the room). I had one guest that couldn't find any jelly. He was directed to go look at two stations by one server. One of the station attendants informed our guest that they had none (jelly). I personally exclaimed to our server that it was hard to believe that a restaurant of this caliber did not have any jelly at all. The server informed me that it should be at one of the stations. In my opinion, the server should have gotten our guest some jelly - needless to say the gentlemen ended up with no jelly for his English muffins. All in all - food was great, service poor.

Lacking salad choices that do not have fatty dressing already in them and healthier bread choices such as 100% whole wheat instead of only offering unhealthy grease dripping rolls and english muffins. Lacking individual coffee carafes so you don't have to wait super long for refills. m

I took a friend to their Sunday brunch buffet on New Years Day 2016. Once again, I ate so much, did not need to eat the rest of the day! Waiter was excellent, I never needed to ask for anything. Coffee and tea refilled automatically with output being intrusive Food great! Sat in the main train station, decor, soaring ceilings beautiful. Noise level seemed minimum. Will continue to return thereM

Good selection of food.
However tables are way too close together. We sat at a four top song the wall separating the bar room and dining are - the tables were crammed in beside each other and the people on both sides of us kept bumping into one another when trying to enter and exit.

Some how they ran out of all steaks by 8:00 pm on New Year's Eve. Hostess was impatient seating us and didn't tell us that they were out of steaks. Waitress was very short and rushing. When we told her we did not want dessert she didn't seem too pleased. Would not go back to the grand concourse esp when I've heard great things from other people who have gone in the past.

We arrived with a group of 6 for NYE dinner. We were seated at our reservation time and were taken care of right away. Everyone enjoyed their food. My only complaint would be some of our steaks were cooked one level above what we asked. Our food and Drinks were overall delicious and we would go back for another special occasion.

Food quality and service was great. Disappointed that the menu was limited for New Years Eve, instead of the normal menu with more choices. I wish they had informed us when we made the reservations, then we would have had a choice of The Grand Concourse or possibly another venue. I understand the reasoning, but there were many open tables and areas completely unseated, so they have handled larger number of people than that night.

Wonderful! A bunch of us went for New Years Eve and had a very nice time. We all got drinks and an appetizer or a soup/salad which was delicious. The only regrettable decision was that I asked my steak to be medium and it was very much so on the rare side. Other than that we've been a few times and will definitely be back again. I'll just be more specific on my meat!
