Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews

We have visited the Grand Concourse on numerous occasions for Sunday brunch prior to attending sporting events in Pittsburgh. The food selection is incredible, service excellent and the ambience is perfect. The whole family had a marvelous time! The trick to Sunday brunch at the Grand Concourse is "to pace yourself."

My wife and I came here for the Sunday brunch. It is an all-you-can-eat buffet, but extremely high end, with wonderful options.
It is also a true brunch. Breakfast classics, including eggs, omelet and waffle stations, and just about everything else you can imagine sit side-by-side with a prime rib, smoked turkey, and ham carving station, several seafood options, and a whole host of desserts. Try the fresh-made (while you watch) donuts!
The location is on the riverfront, and many tables have a view of the river. Those that don't are "forced" to look at the classic decor of the Grand Concourse--a beautiful, ornate, carved wooden dining room any restaurant-goer would be impressed by.
Add to this the friendly, efficient staff and you've got yourself a winner. We'll definitely be returning!

Six of us ate there for dinner to celebrate my son's birthday. Our waiter, Collin, was spectacular. He was efficient, helpful, and truly amazing at what he does. The food was really good. The Firecracker Shrimp are a must have! I will go back for that! The only complaint...The Caesar Salad. It was very pricey, had iceberg and not Romaine, very little dressing, and is definitely not worth the money. So, stay away from the Caesar Salad!

The food was wonderful. The ambiance of the Grand Concourse was great. All restaurant servers were excellent, except our server. The best way to describe him was "missing in action". Apparently there were two Daniels. We had the blond Daniel as the other Daniel sat us. We had to ask other servers twice for items since we couldn't find him. The one waiter couldn't find him as well. I had to ask him for our drinks although everyone in the dining room including those sat after us had their drinks already. When I finally told him that we would like him to improve his service to our table, he got a bit hostile towards us. My guess is this will not be a surprise to the Grand Concourse as his service was that bad. It's a shame because everything else was wonderful and the other servers were extremely attentive to all of the tables around us.

The service was extremely slow. We had a reservation and we were a large group. Everything took an extended amount of time to come out - drinks, bread, apps, dinner, check. It was a long time before we could even order our meal. They also asked "soup or salad" with each entree and we all ordered salad because we thought it was included but it was an extra charge.

The food that was available was good but they did not have the featured dishes. Also, due to their not being many people they decided not honor the request for a cappuccino because it would be to much trouble to start it up. Overall would not recommend the restaurant. It's only advantage is the location and ambiance.

Great atmosphere and waiter service for Sunday brunch. Food was only slightly above average. Donuts were great. Our party wanted to sit in the main dining room and this was noted when the reservation was made. I also let the hostess know when we checked in. When we called to be seated we were led to another dining area and I had to let her know we requested the main room. She looked at her slip and said oh yes. We had to stand there for a few minutes while a table was made ready in the main room.

We had reservations at grand concourse for 8:00. As we arrived there was a major fight-at the check in desk with the hostess and a waiter in front for all to see. At 820 we were escorted to our table Clearly the staff was scrambling because a waiter had quit. Our wine was presented poorly. The harried waitress brought my husband the wrong fish dish, which they did take off the bill. The view and the company was lovely. I won't be back

Great view, but the food was a little disappointing for the price. I had crab cakes that had some sort of fish bones in it, I couldn't even finish it. The bread they give you was delicious. I don't know that I would eat here again unless their lunch prices are more affordable. Service was good, but it was a little noisy in the room we were in.

First time in my life that a server has refused to serve us. Fortunately after we complained about sitting for 15 minutes without being approached we were allocated a different server, Herman, who did his best to restore our evening. My steak tornados were a bit too done for medium but the food tasted fine.

We were celebrating a special occasion and looking for a restaurant listed with a seafood offering. The history of the restaurant was intriguing and the previous reviews were good. The restaurant and view were beautiful, but the food and service were fair at best. Sadly, we will never go back.

Celebrated my husband and my birthdays there this past Sunday and enjoyed every moment. We prefer to sit in the main dining room but spent this dinner in the River Room due to a 200+ attendee wedding reception in the main dining room and bar. Crabcakes, Martha's Vineyard Salad, Charley's Chowder (all on the Twilight Dinner Menu) and poppy seed rolls were all delicious. Service was excellent. River and city views are nice but the noise level is high in this room.

Service was exceptionally slow and our server smelled like cigarettes. She was clearly not worried about our experience. Kitchen was out of sirloin leaving a small filet or fatty ribeye left. The ribeye I order was extremely fatty and the server did not check back until we were almost finished. Very disappointing experience.

Went for Sunday brunch. food was delicious, especially the freshly made doughnuts and pecan rolls although had to return to the buffet line 3 times before the tray had any rolls to take. The main room is beautiful. Were seated in a smaller room that had all larger party so it was noisy. Tables were too close together for a buffet were people had to get up and down. Service for beverages was slow. Will return because we like the food but will request main room or sunroom next time.

I have been there for Sunday brunch twice, and it was great both times. The omlet chef is personable and makes one great omlet. The fresh donuts are amazing. If you are in Pittsburgh for the weekend, try the brunch because it is worth it.

great atmosphere service was good, our dinners took 45 minutes after soup and salad my steak was raw and my wife's side items and crab cake were cold. 15 minutes later they brought my meal back cooked to medium as ordered my wife was finished with her meal I did not eat my meal the mgr. did take it off our bill and apologized we did pay for apps. and salads so over all they get a 1 out of 10

We hadn't been to this restaurant in years, but decided to give it a go since it was restaurant week in Pittsburgh. Although we didn't order from the special restaurant week menu, we ordered from the regular menu and the entrees were just okay. Not bad, not great. The watermelon salad was very good and the smashed sweet potatoes were a nice treat out of the ordinary. However, the atmosphere here is among the best in Pittsburgh. Our service was mediocre as we had a brand new server that couldn't answer many questions without running to check on the answers. So, all in all, our experience was 'not bad'. The atmosphere made the experience worthwhile.
