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.

Grand Concourse is pleasant. We had chicken parmigiana, and it was a trifle too thick for our taste. An asparagus side was perfect.
The main room is lovely to look at and I'd recommend sitting either in the main dining room or the bar and not at the side facing the river and the railroad tracks.
Decent wine list. This restaurant was supposed to be the best, but I would say it is very good and probably better than the neighboring restaurants, but not outstanding. Our sever who had been there for 20 years was lovely.

It's been a number of years since I have been to Pittsburg and the Grand Concourse.
The ambiance and the service were as I remembered - outstanding. The watermelon salad was excellent and lobster bisque very nice. The entrees on the other hand - crab cakes and snapper were good but not outstanding and not on par with the rest of the experience.
Notwithstanding, I would recommend - especially if seeking a romantic evening -

Service was very slow at the beginning (took almost 10 minutes to get drinks), but vastly improved over the evening.
I appreciated a vegan entree, but wish appetizers and desserts would have been vegan friendly, or labeled as such. Waitress seemed a bit unsure if a soup and sorbet was vegan.

Service was terrible. We had a party of 6 and were placed at a table for 8. The chairs were not removed and it was really awkward trying to seat everybody (the waitress eventually corrected this by removing the chairs but the table was still too big). We asked about a custom appetizer and was told no by the waitress and ordered something else, then she brought the appetizer and acted like it was complementary and when the bill came we were charged for it. They brought our appetizers out and very shortly after that brought our dinners so the dinners were cold by the time we got to them. Rushed us through dinner, even though the restaurant was empty. Really expensive place, disappointed in the experience.

The food was wonderful. The view was beautiful. The service was outstanding. A friend from Florida came to Pittsburgh to introduce a young woman from Thailand to Duquesne University. This was a historic evening and the Grand Concourse made it even more so. My friends ordered the salmon rockefeller with the Martha's vineyard salad as well as the mahi mahi with the appetizer of Charlie's chowder. I ordered their lemon spiced salmon with sweet mashed potatoes with an appetizer of watermelon gazpacho. What wonderful flavors. What serious seafood! What a night! Colin is our favorite waiter. He served us with flair and expertise. He acted as though we were his only customers! In every category, the Grand Concourse excels.

I have been to this buffet many years ago and have a fond memory of what it was like. Although the setting is basically the same, beautiful and elegant, the buffet itself suffers. It was rather noisy, hectic, and overall crowded this time around. I try to avoid buffet's in general but made the exception because of past experiences here. The general attire of most of the patrons was the same you would see at a Golden Corral! Sleeveless T shirts, flip flops. Just not what I would expect at a nearly $30/plate dinner downtown. The food was overall fine, but a heavy portions to desserts, sweets, cookies, doughnuts, and the like. In general, I felt like this has become a tourist destination and not what I pictured. I might try it again in 20 years!

I love the grandeur of this historical landmark. I am so glad they preserved this train station. The Sunday brunch far exceeded my expectations. The selection of food will satisfy the majority of people's tastes. The banana foster pancakes are terrific. What a way to start your day -- in a beautiful building, great food, service and view of the city skyline.

While the ambiance was wonderful our service initially was slow and the plates not cleared from our table. The waitress waited for us to move salad plates and soup bowls instead of her removing them. The tables were too close and made for a very uncomfortable end to our meal.

We were a group of sorority sisters having our yearly reunion. We were staying at a B&B on the Northside. Received $12 off our total because of a partnership with the GC. The River Room is always a good choice when with out of town guests. Great view of the Mon River, the city skyline, the trains and the Smithfield St Bridge. Stephanie was our server and was very attentive to the 5 of us. Rolls and salmon pate always delish! As was the salmon. Can't miss with Charley's chowder. Wish we had had separate checks though. Took too much time and effort trying to figure out who owed what. But having dinner in such a beautiful historic building is always a treat!

Consistently outstanding food served by an attentive and knowledgeable server with a scenic view. Food was beautiful to look at and delicious. Special requests were no problems and service was relaxed but attentive.

Always love to visit the Grand Concourse and sit in the river facing room with the great city view. A beautiful historic place and the Gandy Dancer Saloon is great for cocktails
. Great for private events. The food fine - though may need to step up their game have as Pittsburgh palates getting a bit more sophisticated.

We were there for our anniversary as
Well as my parents anniversary. My mother's steak was so well done and dry. My husband's salmon was not fresh. We were very disappointed since in the past we have enjoyed our dinners there

The staff with whom I spoke on the phone were very gracious and accommodating. I changed my reservation a few times and they were always helpful. I live in NJ and was really looking forward to my family's Sunday brunch at Grand Concourse. Our wait staff was very attentive and professional, as well. However, the food left a LOT to be desired! The scrambles eggs were hard and chewy. The food options were more limited than when I was there 2 years ago. My cousin said his food was bland and that the chicken was dry. I may go there again... I don't know.

The scallops were the worst I have ever had - very tough & stringy. We were seated on a veranda, not in the beautiful room with the marble & stained glass mentioned in the AAA TourBook. Service was slow at best. We were not impressed & would not go back.

We came to celebrate our daughter's Masters graduation from Duquesne University.
It was ok; not outstanding for the quality of the food. Maybe because we had a late reservation and it was the end of the night. We were seated under an airconditioning vent that I asked to be turned down. At first it seemed like a big production, but when the couple at the only other occupied table in the room asked, it was adjusted. Even the server said that it was too cold in that spot.
The server was EXCELLENT. My husbands food did not come out as ordered, and was VERY salty. She insisted on taking it back to correct it. She also asked if I would like to substitute something for my potatoes as they were the root of the salt problem. I accepted and was thankful; the red potatoes were way too salty.
There was also something going on in Station Square and instead of parking in the lot and getting validation as I was promised when I make the reservation, we were told that parking was a flat $10 and that we could get a $2 rebate from the restaurant, or go to the garage at the opposite end of the square. We turned into the valet area thinking that we could drive through and found we couldn't and just paid for the valet as it was a long day and we hadn't had anything since breakfast leaving the Philadelphia area and were starving. We thought that we could use a card, but they said cash only so we were scrambling to see if anyone had any cash on them. When we came out we saw that our car had just been pulled to the side. As we had already dropped a bit of cash on dinner that we weren't really impressed with, and paid for parking which I was told on the phone would be free and the valet had not parked or had to go retrieve our car, I didn't tip him and he seemed very annoyed.
I don't know what the noise level would normally be; there was only 1 other couple at the time we were there.

Tonight was a perfect night. The Grand Concourse is a historic, elegant, grand restaurant located along the Mon River in a former train station. The view of the Mon River and downtown Pittsburgh is outstanding from their River Room. I had the privilege of introducing two new friends to this elegant, favorite place. One friend and I had the Salmon Rockefeller. It had just enough spinach and crab. Delicious! Her husband is a steak lover and enjoyed his sirloin very much. We all had the Martha's Vineyard salad. Desserts were delectable: they had cheesecake. I had the famous key lime pie. Wow! The service was outstanding. Colin, our waiter acted as though we were his only customers. This is a unique location and our night could not have been more special! The Grand Concourse is a must-visit, Pittsburgh treasure.

We love the Grand Concourse Sunday brunch. We live in Cleveland and this has become a must-do meal to cap off our annual Kennywood trips. The cost for the three of us ($80 before tip) makes this a special occasion meal for we average bears, but it's totally worth it. The charm of the gorgeous old building and the spectacular views of downtown across the river set the perfect scene. We've always had friendly wait staff, especially important when working with a little girl. And what can be said about the food? It's spectacular. We talk about this meal all year and can't wait to come back for it. After the sensory overload and mega-junkfood of Kennywood on Saturday, this is the perfect, calming, nourishing, delicious antidote for the brain and belly on Sunday. We like to round out our soul-satisfying Sunday with a trip to Phipps Conservatory before heading back home. And funny...no matter how much fun we have at Kennywood or how many breathtaking things we see at the Conservatory, the Grand Concourse meal is always the thing we talk about most. I can't wait till next summer when we can come again!

Very good food, with high quality choices for a buffet. We did not eat the breakfast food, but stayed with the lunch choices. The prime rib was delicious had a nice seafood bar with salmon and shrimp. Cold salads were very good and the multitudes of desert choices were delicious. Overall a very good value for the price.
