Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I went to Sunday Brunch for our anniversary. The Front dest hostess was very enthusiastic and friendly, even was able to seat us in the RiverRoom, seats with a view. Unfortunately we didn't have a server, but Jessica the server close to our table graciously obliged. She was very apologetic and took out drink orders. We, of course, had the buffet, which was very good. When we sat back down, our water glasses were full, and our drinks arrived. She made sure my coffee cup was filled as well as our water glasses. I was quite pleased with our visit. Will definatly return.

We were visiting family and friends after having moved away from Pittsburgh 16 years ago. The warm, buttery bread and Martha's Vineyard Salad was as wonderful as always and the gazpacho was world class. I say that after having sampled gazpacho all over Spain! The service was spot-on and the view of the river and city was spectacular!

What has happened to this once-great restaurant!? Oh my goodness, it was so bad! I was redeeming a $100 gift card and regret using it at the Grand Concourse. I ordered halibut and was shocked to see what they brought: a dried, shriveled piece of fish that honest to goodness looked like it had been sitting out for a week. My husband ordered salmon stuffed with crab. He said it "tasted better than it looked." I'm sad...I truly want to love this place. It's historic. But, it was a gross dining experience.

While the service was excellent, the quality and especially the quantity of the food was far below expectations, past visits, and especially value for the price. It has been many years since we dined at the Grand Concourse and we were disappointed. The amount of real food you receive for the $30-$50 price range is too small and to have to pay for salads ala carte seems to rather detract from the enjoyment. Also, the quality of the food has gone down and it seems that all of your recipes contain spices that are hot and not suitable for people with stomach or intestinal issues with hot spicy food. Get real, come back down to earth, and we may return.

I have dined at this restaurant at least two or three times a year for the past thirty years. I keep going back, but it is not a favorite. The setting is beautiful. For me, it is best when entertaining friends from out-of-town. I don't like to take visitors to a chain restaurant that they could go to in many cities. The period architectural ambiance of the main dining room is impressive and the view of the city from the River Room is also a treat. The Grand Concourse is distinctly Pittsburgh, and it's easy to take the out-of-town guests across the street to take the Monongahela Incline to Mt. Washington to view the impressive Pittsburgh skyline. I find the brunch offerings to be quite decent and a good selection. It is also a good value. They do miss the boat, however, on some simple touches like not having lemon wedges available for the taking next to the bowl of shrimp and having to ask the server for condiments such as tartar sauce. There is always some sort of fish on the buffet. You would think little things like this would be a no brainer for such an established restaurant. Valet and self-parking are both available and easy to use.

The brunch was fantastic. The view of the city along the river was great. The wait staff was very good. It was very crowded with long lines for various food stations which spoiled what could have been a five star rating.

Recommend Sunday Brunch. I mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating my mother's 90th. birthday and had hoped that was noted, possibly her just being recognized the day we were there. But she wasn't. That was a little disappointing. That's why I didn't recommend for a special occasion. But love the dining experience.

Absolutely loved the Grand Concourse! The staff was quite friendly and courteous, answered questions about the menu and happy to make personal recommendations. Food was delicious, artful and had a beautiful presentation. Drink specials were creative and refreshing! Would definitely recommend for a special night out or just to treat yourself to a fab meal!

Having been a customer many times over the years I'm concerned.
The overall food quality (at least this day) is not What I have received in the past and certainly did not meet my expectations.
My wife had the seafood trio which failed on all three parts. The crab cake was fishy and way too much filler, the salmon was over cooked, and the shrimp were nothing to rave about.
My main course was the king crab legs, two of the legs were rubbery which is caused by taking crab during molting. At $59 for 3lbs I would expect the highest quality including a claw.
Oh, the shrimp cocktail at $15 for five medium size shrimp were nothing to rave about, best part was the cocktail Sauce which was very good.
And then the desert, the creme brûlée was missing both the bananas and was burnt.
Please wake up your kitchen staff and match quality food with the quality setting.

We live about 45 minutes away and made trip to the city specifically to visit the Grand Concourse- we've never been there before. We were politely greeted and immediately seated (with a reservation.) We had a window seat with an amazing view! Our server- I think his name was Arden? (Spelling?) He was PERFECT! He greeted us promptly. He was friendly, helpful, patient and most importantly (to us) our drinks were always full! To the Chef/Cooks- he food was AMAZING! It was so delicious and FAST! We were hungry so we appreciated that very much!
I do not like Salmon but my husband insisted I try the salmon spread that comes with the bread- incredible!
We also had bruschetta (what kind of cheese is that?!?) It was the best I've ever had! The fire cracker chicken- which we would happily swing by and order by itself. We've been raving about it to everyone ever since!
Our meals were the fishermans stew- while it wasn't what my husband expected he enjoyed it! I had the crab cakes which were delicious. I skipped the rice- it was nothing special in comparison to everything else we had eaten.
We ended our meal with dessert- bananas foster creme brûlée and chocolate truffle cake. Both perfection. I had a coffee and my husband had the four roses small barrel.
Even the sunset was wonderful. Overall- from start to finish our first impression of the grand concourse was a great one! We've been telling everyone about it and will continue to. We look forward to coming down with our children when they're a bit older (old enough to really enjoy the quality food!)
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

I must say I was disappointed for the 1st time ever. Omelettes were heavy. I don't eat meat, so was looking forward to the Salmon Rockefeller, and they didn't offer that. No hot pasta. So, I just had fish and hash browns and cold pasta salad. A hot pasta dish, red skinned potatoes or parsley potatoes would have been nice. Even the dessert table disappointed this time. Dine there for Sunday Brunch on special occasions but this was not up to their usual standards. I certainly did not get my $$ worth. Also, I had requested a table on the raised platform. There was just the 2 of us. Very crowded with people waiting. They put us at a regular table for 4. I requested they move us to the raised platform per my request as there were other diners who could utilize a 4 person table. Our waiter never came, so after 10 minutes, we just got up and went to the buffet. I had a satchel with me, and my husband tucked it on the floor against the wall. When we came back my satchel was gone. The staff had it and said they didn't know anyone was seated there. This should have been in their computerized seating program. If I could give a "disappointing" rating, I would do so.

We went here for brunch to celebrate a family member's birthday. Despite having reservations, the wait time was 20 - 30 minutes and the lobby itself was overly crowded and standing room only. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the brunch offering was plentiful. However, the level of food served and the wait staff service was disappointing. Overall, it was an extremely chaotic brunch scene and not worth the prices. There are so many other really, really great restaurants in Pittsburgh to go to instead.
