    We went to the Grand Concourse to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was wonderful! We were seated promptly and treated like royalty. The food was wonderful--portions were generous and tasty! We will definitely be back. We ate in the main dining area and will perhaps try the River Room next time to change up our view. All in all a great night.

  • Dinner and Trains!

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I've never been to Pittsburgh before, but I knew I wanted to have a special dinner with my boyfriend when we visited. My boyfriend loves trains, railroad stations and their history so the Grand Concourse seemed the perfect choice. I'm glad that I was proven correct! I wrote a note indicating his love of trains and requesting a seat near a window so we could see the city lit up at night. When we arrived, they asked us to wait a few minutes and then they led us to a corner booth right next to a window showing off the city and the train tracks - two trains went by throughout dinner and that made his night. The service was wonderful - our host was kind enough to stop by the main staircase and take our picture before seating us and our waitress answered our questions about the menu and wine list knowledgeably and graciously. She even went out of her way to find a few Aleve to help my boyfriend's headache. All of the staff went above and beyond for us and made our evening very special :) We will definitely come back the next time we visit Pittsburgh!

    A dinner at the Grand Concourse is always an event and the menu has lots of incredible offerings. Our service was a bit off, however. The waitress seemed to be fighting a cold, which set us on edge. Our drinks were served simultaneously with salads; bread didn't arrive until afterward. Incredibly, they served a martini that somehow had no kick whatsoever. Some entrees were hot; some lukewarm. Desert was served, but we had to wait for forks. First cup of coffee was lukewarm, second hot. This wasn't our first visit, so we know this isn't routine. But at the prices charged here, there's a limit to how many times this type of service can be tolerated.

  • cold food, long wait
    EdwardC
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The grand concourse was ok, we waited an hour and a half for our entrees and they came cold and had to be sent back. The wait staff was over extended and we hardly saw our waiter which created really long waits for drinks. I still have hope for a good experience at the g concourse, I'd good back to hopefully get a better one. They were also hosting a wedding that night so I'm assuming that played into the poor experience. Overall, not bad but avoid the place if there's a special event.

    I was disappointed at the lack of a formal dress code. There were dining guests wearing baseball hats. I had a well done steak served improperly cooked and had to be returned. The wait staff or management did not offer any complimentary service for this inconvenience.

    The Oyster Bar is always great fun. When customers move from Pittsburgh and come back for a visit, they invariably pay a visit to Nancy at the Oyster Bar - it is amazing to watch her in action because she is so thoughtful and friendly to all customers - old and new!

    on your online "open table" form the last box inquired if there were any special requests. My wife and I have made this an annual event for the past 12 years and Well yes I did have one simple request and this was the first time I ever made one. I am a veteran of the Vietnam war, which for me is a special occasion in it self, but just as important to me November 11th was also my 47th wedding anniversary and to commerate both I ask for a cupcake with a candle. I wanted it to be served at the end of the meal. As my wife and I finished our meal and the plates were removed I quietly anticipated the request. A fine restaurant like yours would not forget a request such as this. I am not one to make such a big deal out of such a simple request, and this is not a complaint, nor thinly veiled attempt at receiving any kind of coupons or other gratuities. What I am attempting to do is to help your place of business remain a success by attending to the details and I am sure you know how important details are. My wife and I will continue to be guest at your place because we like it. thank you for your time, James S.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Grand Concourse. The entire staff, from the hostess to our mindful-but-not-overbearing waitress, Kaitlyn, made the evening feel very special. It was as though the entire staff was focused on my wife and me. Our entrees, salmon, were fresh and expertly prepared. The ambiance of an elegent train station from the Gilded Age speaks volumes by itself. Although the Grand Concourse hardly requires it, I glady offer this glowing endorsement of one of Pittsburgh's most elegant and unique dining experiences.

    I had brought my family here from out of town as I had been here once and I knew they would love the scenery and the food. We had a nice time with good service and the food options are amazing, but our seats were crammed in a corner in the outside seating area. Every time two of us wanted to get up(which was rather frequently as we wanted to try as much as we could), we were bumping into the two diners behind us as their table was practically on top of ours. Had I known we were going to be seated in the loud, porch seating I probably would have requested a later reservation or had chosen another location, only because I was specifically bringing my family there for the setting. Overall a nice experience but I don't know if I'll return.

    From the moment you enter the Grand Concourse it is clear this place has style and charm. The atmosphere is breathtaking especially if you get a seat overlooking the Pittsburgh skyline. Order what you like cause I have yet to find anything that isn't delicious.

    Went to Grand Concourse for my birthday. I had not been here in 10+ years. It was a Friday evening, peak dinner time. The restaurant was half-occupied, which seemed odd given the day/time of our meal. The food was good, but not overly great for the price. I realize part of the experience is paying for the view and the ambience of the building (which is amazing), but didn't justify the food price. Overall kitchen output pace seemed slow compared to peer dining establishments. Overall - it's worth going to once to see the inside of the building and enjoy the view of the city, but wouldn't recommend for a repeat performance for a formal dinner based on the food quality and kitchen output pace related to the price paid for the meal.

    My husband and were celebrating our wedding anniversary with dinner at the Grand Concourse. I mentioned that in my Open Table reservation and it actually carried through. The host who seated us and our waiter both wished us Happy Anniversary and gave us a "VIP" card for our table. The atmosphere as always was beautiful . We were in the River Room. The food was superb and it was good to see that their Charlie's Chowder was as delicious as I remembered it. To top off a lovely evening the waiter gave us a "complimentary" dessert. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience start to finish.

    I've been down to the Grand Concourse several times over the last few years. I chose the Grand Concourse as a place to celebrate me and my fiance's engagement. We went down on a Sunday to enjoy the brunch menu. It certainly did not fail to impress. The food is outstanding, the cooks are delightful, the atmosphere is spectacular, and the scene is out of this world beautiful. I recommend this as a nice place to go for couples, and groups. While it's not a bad place for children I find the high end dining experience fit for those who don't want noise or other distractions.

    The food was incredible and the setting is tremendous, but our service was lacking. We waited for plates to be cleared between courses, we waited for coffee and beverages, and we waited again for our server to bring us the bill. I like to leave a big tip, but when the receipt gives optional amounts for 17, 18, or 20 percent, I felt cheap leaving 16 percent for service that was lacking.

    Our dinner at Grand Concourse was romantic and enjoyable, with very good service and food. The pictures from the website seemed to indicate that we would be able to eat in the main grand dining room of the Grand Concourse. We were disappointed, however, when we arrived and were not able to even see it. We feel that the website was somewhat misleading. If your heart is set on eating in the main grand dining room, it might be a good idea to call ahead to make sure it's open to the public for that specific evening and not reserved for a special event.
