Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews

It was a nice experience as usual, but it was too busy. We had to wait to seat. ( we had a reservation) and there was a long line for the food.
However, the people who was working there was EXTREMELY nice and understanding. They suggested us to pick something for the children while we were waiting and they gave us another table that was even better that the table we asked at the time of the reservation.

I increased the number in our dinner party from 6 to 8 people, but when we got to our table the table, it was not set for eight patrons. When they brought the additional table settings, the settings were in the water glass and placed in front of each patron and we had to set the settings ourselves. They brought us bread prior to ordering, but no butter plates were present on the table and had to ask a bus person for them. One patron ask for more water, and received it, but other patrons at the table whose glasses could have been replenished, were not filled. Water is no charge, but if you don't ask for it you won't get a refill. And lastly, when it was time for dinner, four hot meals were served and the waiter went back to get the remaining four, all eight dinners did not come to the table at once. Having worked in foodservice for over 25 years, these finer details are things that catch my eye. On a positive note, everyone did enjoy their meals. All were hot, very appealing to the eye, which it's said we eat with our eyes first. It was a 60th birthday that was enjoyed by all otherwise.

The service was very poor for such an expensive restaurant. Our young waitress was clearing people's plates right at my elbow while I was still trying to finish my meal to the point where I had to stop eating while she did her more important clearing. She could have waited until we were all finished eating. She also asked me if I wanted a second drink AFTER all our plates were cleared even though we didn't look like a group that were there to be drinking all night.
The food was good.

Our experience was stupendous, it lived up to it's outstanding 5-star community reputation we've always heard about! It was a wonderful dinner with the 20 oz. ribeye, delicious buttered potatoes, accompanied by the apple & nut salad and house dressing. The dry red wine recommended by our server Stephanie made the evening joyful! We had a great view and can't wait to go again, we won't even wait for a special occasion as our excuse, we'll go just for the sheer pleasure and enjoyment of the experience visiting the Grand Concourse. I recommend it to everyone.

I feel badly to leave a mediocre review about a restaurant that I've been wanting to return to for such a long time. But, in my opinion, the quality of the food has deteriorated. The service was not up to par (the restaurant was not particularly busy), and the dining area was absolutely freezing.

Always a great experience. Our waiter Chris was superb! We went at a later time for the Sunday Brunch (2PM) and avoided the crowds and long lines to the omelette and waffle bar(s). Even though late in the Brunch timeframe, all the food was hot and available. Thanks for a great family gathering!
Attended the Sunday Brunch at Grand Conc ...
Attended the Sunday Brunch at Grand Concourse, and was met with a formidable well-executed buffet, helpful, but strapped work staff, and a veritable army of other diners.
The buffet had the offerings of a high-scale brunch, but with flair, excellent taste, and everything cooked to perfection. Delicious egg and veggie scramblers, a couple scrumptious sausage options, assortments of veggie dishes and a DELICIOUS pesto mac and cheese were available. Also available at nearby tables were fresh seafood including mussels, shrimp, various fish dishes including salmon. A meat serving station had selections of pork and prime rib. A waffle station, and copious dessert tables satisfied my sweet tooth. Make sure you try a mimosa, as they are made with delicious, sweet fresh squeezed orange juice. The build-your-own Bloody Mary is able to be skipped, as better ingredients could be used at home.
The work staff at Grand Concourse is second to none. They are always going the extra mile. My waitress had a difficult time keeping up with my table's needs, and also did not take the time to show us where the buffet was set up, and what was offered (though we were told by the hostess that our helper would). Though there were many employees helping, they were simply overwhelmed by the amount of diners.
That said, the sheer amount of diners makes for a noisy, crowded affair. If you are used to quiet, romantic dinners at the Grand Concourse during the week, you will be quite surprised by the crowd that forms. Screaming children, rude adults and shoulder-to-shoulder queues for food may detract from what you are typically used to in this establishment.
My reservations were at noon, and by the time 1:30PM came around, the flood of people coming through began to make even the spacious Grand Concourse feel over-crowded.
I rated the experience overall as a 4/5. The amount of diners truly drew away one star that otherwise would have made this a perfect experience.

We took local and out of town family and friends to The Grand Concourse for Sunday Brunch , there were ten of us and everyone had a wonderful time. The food was great and the service was outstanding. The building is absolutely beautiful, we are planning to go again as soon as possible. The price for ten people was extremely reasonable. Thanks for a wonderful time. This is a true Pittsburgh treasure.

Excellent Sunday Brunch. Five stars, across the board. Warm welcome from hostess. Great table with quality white tablecloth. Polite waitress who kept my coffee cup refilled (though a carafe of coffee would be a plus). Polite staff at each of the buffet stations. Just a great experience.
I had good from the omelet station and it was a good, quality omelet. They have a good selection of meats and veggies, plus at least two choices in cheese. And with five or so burners cooking away, the queue moved quickly.
Hot table had scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, bacon, mac & cheese and a bunch of more that I can't recall. Cold table had a bunch of salad including a nice cucumber salad plus a macaroni salad and a pre-assembled Caesar. At least two different cooked salmon platters were out. Smoked salmon had the right fixings available including capers and chopped onions. I chose to have it on the flatbread rather than the bagel.
Carving station had a fab prime rib and also a turkey breast and a big ham. The beef was terrific and both au jus and horseradish sauce were not far away.
And then desserts. There's the donut making machine. There's a bananas foster station. There are cookies and pastries and something that might be apple struedel in a cream sauce.
Yeah, you'll go nuts here, leave stuffed and you will find that the Sunday Brunch Buffet is worth every penny of the $30 they charge.

Dinner was very delicious, this is the second time we have dined at this restaurant. I was a little disappointed in the timely manner of our service this time. Maybe our server was new, not sure. I had to ask for our bread, it was never brought out and the wait for a drinks was pretty long.

I mixed up my reservation time and ended up being a half hour late but the staff took my name and had my party seated at a table within 5 minutes. I was very happy and pleased that they were still able to accommodate my party. Our waitress was always smiling and our food was prompt. Only thing I was disappointed with is the rice that came with my meal was cold. But all in all the food was great, the staff was awesome and I love how the Grand Concourse utilizes the historic structure.

The atmosphere and beautiful décor never cease to awe me. The food is always excellent. My friend came from New York and he was impressed with restaurant. I loved everything from the amazing service to the historical surroundings. The Grand Concourse is the epitome of fine dining.

The 4 to 6 o'clock special worked out perfect! Included the soup/salad, entree, and desert. This made the dinner more affordable for a college student celebrating a special occasion with his girl. Great food, ambiance, and fantastic service. Thanks to the staff for making this evening so special!

Normally I dont mind paying $$$ for a great meal every now and then if i get great food. My adult son and I both agreed that the best we could say was that we were not at all impressed and wont be back due to the food being bland. When I put out $100 for two meals I expect to be impressed. Nada.
Our wait staff, Dave, was very attentive, kind and professional and we tipped him well.

My family and I went to the Grand Concourse for the Thanksgiving buffet. We had many choices of entrees to choose from prime rib, ham, and turkey. A variety of vegetables and salad. The desert table was amazing. I would recommend the Grand Concourse for any occasion.

Thanksgiving Buffet. We have made this our Thanksgiving dinner every year for the past 10 years. We were rather disappointed this year because service was not very good (difficult to get waiter to take drink orders and drinks did not come back as requested) and some of the food was not as good as usual. (Ham was tough, and turkey had a lot of hard fat chucks). The variety was good but we would have appreciated a little better quality (especially with the deserts). I realize that adding better quality of food might cost more, but since we only reserve Thanksgiving for this, I would be willing to pay a little more.
We also miss the piano player that lends an air of festivities to the occasion.

Very nice. Try the mango mojito. We've eaten there several Thanksgivings. The reservation/waiting/checkin process is flawless now. You pretty much go right to your table. Parking is easy. We always get the same table/area that we like. Buffet layout is a bit weird but it works for such a multi room layout. They have added the secret second buffet in the bar/lounge area with the famous donut robot machine. Really fun to watch. What I like most is the food is your basic traditional fare. It's hard to find sometimes. There weren't mushrooms hidden in everything or strange twists to the classics. Everything was delicious. Thanks for having table linens.

My wife and I decided to eat here for the 3rd Thanksgiving dinner, and this time we were not impressed, the meat carving chef was not educated on how to order the prime rib well done, our waitress told us what we have to do to get the meat cooked the way we like it. My wife had ordered a drink and she liked it very much, we went up to the buffett when we came back my glass of water and her drink which was only half empty were gone from our table, our waitress apoligize and brought her a new drink and didn't charge us for it. The apple dumpling i took was very hard on the bottom so i didn't eat it. The best way to describe this outing for us was a 3 out of 10 very disapointed this time

We visited the Grand Concourse for the first time to have Thanksgiving with my daughter who lives in Pittsburgh. The ambience is absolutely wonderful as was the service. They were very, very busy but the entire staff was friendly and cheerful. We had a wonderful view of the river as we enjoyed the traditional Thanksgiving favorites. If you visit, be sure you see the donut machine! Overall, a very good experience.
