Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews

All three in our group were satisfied with their very different dishes, all seafood . Service was attentive although one waiter, not ours, began clearing too early. Only one of the three plates was warmed, a disappointment.

Booked table for my mom's 80th birthday and mentioned the occasion when making the reservation. We were placed at a cramped table in the back room. We expected to be in the main dining room. Food was okay but steak was grisly and tough. Not quite evening we were hoping for.

We arrived on time and were seated promptly. Everyone was kind and professional. We placed our orders.
And then we waited two hours for our meals. I couldn't believe how long it took. Two hours?
We waited so long the manager offered us complimentary deserts which to our surprise appeared on the bill! I won't return, we did not get our food until about 9:00 PM.
TWO HOURS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

everything was so slow. the entire thing took over 3 hours. finally we just ordered desserts to go, just so we could get home that same night. 'a few minutes' took 45 minutes for the main course to arrive - filled up on bread by then and was not hungry for main course. got a box for that too

Great restaurant but our service was painfully slow. They had a wedding in the main room but even still we were there almost 3 hours. To make it even worse they say our party of 5 next to the kitchen entrance so we had non-stop traffic all the time.

The food was very good, well prepared with very attractive presentations. We got to sit in the long room looking over the river, which was lovely as twilight moved into the evening. Our server was quite busy because the primary space had been set aside for a wedding, so every table in our room was occupied from our arrival through our departure. That meant that we had a more leisurely dining experience that lasted almost three hours. I did find myself siting under a vent that wafted cooler air over me throughout the meal, but there was no alternative for seating our party of five.
In a nutshell (because I could go on at ...
In a nutshell (because I could go on at great length): Our waitress was not very good. Although we were told she had been trained, she was not very attentive and not knowledgeable about the menu and food. There were four of us for dinner. Two of our salads were prepared incorrectly, and another appetizer was not correct. Three of our four dinners were also not prepared correctly. Two were blamed on the kitchen as the waitress had specified as such, and one was the waitress' fault. In fairness to the restaurant, these three meals were compted, as was one of the appetizers. Our corking fee was also taken off our bill. Also, as usual, the food was good, free, and brought out hot. We have been to this restaurant numerous times, and the food is always delicious. However, from time-to-time, the service is uneven, slow, and/or inconsistent depending on whom the waiter/waitress is that evening. However, this is the first time we remember that the meals were not prepared as ordered. Perhaps it was a bad night. Luckily, we weren't in a hurry and we had a beautiful view of the city on a clear, beautiful night! We will go back there again as we think this was a rare occurrence. By the way, they also have a delicious Sunday brunch. A bit pricey perhaps, but wonderful food and it is all freshly prepared!

Attended Sunday brunch. Check-in/seating process is terrible (As usual). We were seated about 15 min after our reservation time. Food was OK (not great) - a lot of food stations were empty. Service was pretty bad - plates were not cleared from our table quickly. Overall the ambiance is great, food is OK and service is not good.

We have been here several times over the years. When I come here I feel like I am at an expensive restaurant with out the expensive part. The food is great, the wait staff is always friendly and knowledgable, and the view from the River Room is amazing. Nothing but pluses.

This was my 2nd visit to the GC but this time I brought 3 out of state friends and I wanted to make sure they were impressed. We sat out by the water (wedding in the main room), we had early 5p reservations and were seated at a table away from previously seated customers which was nice. All of my guests said their food was delicious (salmon, steak). We were happy to get the early bird deal with the appetizer and dessert included. The waiter (Daniel) was attentive, the food was served hot and within an acceptable wait time. The drinks are somewhat pricey ($11 is a bit much for a margarita)... but they were good, we each had 1 drink. Overall my guests were happy with my selection for their dinner out in Pittsburgh (they had never been here before and were in town for the football game).

Our experience was disappointing at best. The kitchen was overwhelmed and horribly slow. We had 2 tables of 6, one table had ordered, received their meals and dessert, while the other table was still waiting for our meals. My soup was cold, they ran out of the tuna that I had ordered, so I had to choose something else, then they held the other meals, which were then lukewarm and over cooked from sitting under heat lamps. My sauce was dried on the plate and the shrimp had turned to rubber. My sister's scallops were overcooked and the risotto was lukewarm. The manager apologized and discounted our bill, but the whole experience was disappointing. The view was lovely, but the room is so overcrowded with tables that the waitstaff cannot pass by one another, and persons who have difficulty walking have a hard time navigating through the narrow walkway, and thus impede the waitstaff through no fault of their own. I have not been to the Grand Concourse in nearly 30 years, and my return was a huge let down. Not nearly the quality that I remember.

The restaurant is truly beautiful and in a very nice area with other shops and restaurants. It was quiet and a great place for a couples. However, the portions are not very large. They tend to give you a lot of rice and/or potatoes and only a small portion of seafood. The price was much too high for the amount of food that was served. Service was very good.

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!
