Diner Reviews
  • "This was the first time we had eaten at Grand Concourse. We had a party of eight. The server Lyn was great. Never had to ask twice for anything. Food was great, nice presentation. Rolls were awesome, served fresh. Wine list was great, many choices."

  • "I enjoy taking friends and family to Grand Concourse (old train station) for the fabulous Sunday brunch! It is my favorite go to place for Special Occasions (birthday's, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Etc.) I love the variety of food. Something for everyone including the kids buffet table, hot fresh donuts, omelet bar, several delicious salads, the fantastic fish dishes just to name a few! The reason why we don't go more often. The price is close to $30.00 per person plus you have to pay for parking. I would highly recommend checking out Station Square and having the Sunday brunch at Grand Concourse if you are in visiting Pittsburgh."

  • "It may be helpful to employ at least (2) hospitality associates description specific to direct traffic to the stations which, undoubtedly will add warmth a venue so large. Further, it may add to the experience as these persons would be knowledgeable enough to answer any questions that guests may have about the building's history as they move about during brunch admiring the architecture. Additionally, you may consider contracting a pianist whose ability offers more relaxing accompaniment with a smooth continuum of music as not to be so choppy, making it obvious that music was being read from the sheet. Lastly, you may consider having the piano with amplification throughout the restaurant, as you would any music set for atmosphere."

  • "What a disappointment. When Chuck Muir owned the GC, it was a wonderful place for an elegant dinner. I unfortunately learned during dinner that it was sold to Landry's. That immediately answered both my wife's and my questions about why the appetizer, the scallops with, I think, cheese sauce were so small and terrible flavored AND why our main dishes were fried to a crisp. I had Parmesan "encrusted" tilapia. More like "entombed" in fried batter. Landry's kept the Muir GC prices but significantly cut quality. My bill was $165 with a $60 bottle of wine. The wines, none younger than 2011, were way overpriced. Don't waste your time going here as I will NEVER go back."

  • "This was a horrible experience. There was a wedding going on which was not that bad but they also had Duquense orientation going on at the same time. The place was noisy. You could not hear yourself think. Ordered a steak medium well and it cam out so well that I could not chew the meat. The broccoli was raw. The potatoes were cold and hard. It was like they scrapped a baked potato out. It took forever to get served. We ended up paying $150.00 for the meal and it was not worth $10.00. I would never go here again or recommend it to to anyone else. My husband wanted to do something special for me and I had a better experience at The Outback!"

  • "First, they brought us to a table for 10 when our reservation was for 6 people. They left us standing there while they conferred, then sat us a a table for six. Then they moved us again. By this time everyone in the room was looking at us. One kid's pasta meal had a seafood flavor to the sauce, which kids don't like. The other kid's meal came after the rest of the food. My grilled salmon was partly raw. Despite three trips to the table by the manager and $30 off the bill, the experience, which was to celebrate a birthday, was terrible. The new management leaves much to be desired. Will not return or recommend"

  • "We consider ourselves foodies. We didn't make a reservation for our 22nd anniversary here for the food - we chose the place for the unique dining room and the sentimental value. That ended up about as expected. My recommendation is to visit the bar - the Gandy Dancer. Stick to what this place still has going - the atmosphere, drinks, and appetizers. Can't beat the building - but there are much better choices for dinner and service these days in Pittsburgh."

  • "Save your money. Do not dine here. The location is convenient and the building is gorgeous. They charge you 10 bucks to valet. While the menu looks good, the actual food is not very good. The only dish we had that was good was the blackened snapper. Everything else was just gross."

  • "Brunch, service, ambience and seating for wedding party was all exceptionally good! All LOVED the wide variety and quality of food served for brunch. Pianist playing some favorites also a nice touch. Recommending this venue for special occasions or just a really good place for a Sunday brunch to treat the "cook" in your family for a "no cooking day" outing. Thanks GC staff!"

  • "The Sunday brunch was absolutely wonderful. We celebrated my Son's birthday there instead of going to dinner. All 7 of us were extremely pleased with the food, the service, the atmosphere....simply everything. I will definitely be going back before the next birthday and I told all who would listen to me about the wonderful experience we had."

  • "Went for our 1 year wedding anniversary. Decided to do the brunch buffet. Got seated in a little closed in porch along the side of the building, which was nice but lacked the ambiance of the gorgeous main room. Couldn't really hear the live piano. Food was good, not great. Serving stations were kinda showhorned in to the nooks and crannies of the main room. Server was nice, fairly attentive, but kept pushing a paid membership rewards club membership on us. Didn't like the sales pitch to get the check. I put "wedding anniversary" under special instructions just to see what, if anything, they would do. They really didn't even mention it. I would definitely go back, maybe with a group to sit in the main room, but expectations slightly lowered."

  • "I would recommend Grand Concourse to anyone. The old architecture is to die for and the view of downtown Pittsburgh is excellent. Both of these in themselves really set the atmosphere of the place. To top it off the service was top notch and everyone seemed very knowledgeable about all that was asked by our table. The food was exquisite. Our table had a mix of filet, seafood, chicken, and greens. We are all in agreement that everything we got was to die for! Some of the best surf and turf I've ever had."

  • "My husband and I tried Grand Concourse during restaurant week and the food was tasty, but nothing to brag about. However, our table next to the window allowed us to dine while enjoying the marvelous view at night overlooking the river. It was worth it just for the view alone. Our server had a wonderful personality as well. The dessert we ordered was no longer available that night, so the chef allowed us to choose any dessert we wanted without charging us any extra which resulted in excellent customer service."

  • "Don't know how they stay in business. Our waitress just wasn't around. Couldn't get our water glasses refilled. Food very average to below average. The decor is beautiful but you go to a restaurant to eat - not sightsee. The menu and staff needs a reboot. Go and look at the stain glass but eat somewhere else."

Our waitress was perfect and as always so professional and my one year old granddaughter enjoyed all the attention from her. The food was great , everyone was stuffed and fully enjoyed."

  • "Arrived with only about an hour before close. There were very few tables in use, which I thought would be a bonus, but they were pushing everyone into one scenic corner. The only issue I had was that we were kind of crammed in when we didn't need to be, the the two couples behind us were talking at 85 dB, it was like I was a part of the conversation, unwillingly. If it had gone on any longer I would have asked to move. It may not have been an issue if there was any additional background noise, but it was quiet for that part of the night. Food was great, as were the cocktails. Ate off of both their specialty and main menu."

  • "The first half of our dining experience we were not impressed with the service. We had to track waiters down and it was difficult to just get our water refilled. The food was fantastic though and since brunch is such a self serve thing anyways we weren't too upset. By the end of the meal though we couldn't find anyone to get us a bill. Eventually a manager came over and comped our entire bill. It was a wonderful surprise and such a generous way to handle the situation. We were extremely impressed and will definitely return."

  • "Coming from out-of-town, planning our weekend visit to Pittsburgh. We were lured in by the fantastic photos of the Grand Concourse Dining Room, However, when we arrived we were ushered in to a side dining room with little to no character or other visual interest at all. As it happened, the main dining room was not open to any patrons as it was booked for a wedding. That was not indicated or advised when we made our reservation only days before...why not?!? Had we known we probably would have opted for another dining venue. The food was good, service was fast and good, but we were in from Cleveland and wanted to experience a bit more...afterall Pittsburgh, we can get fantastic food in Cleveland, we have an Iron Chef!"

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to somebody. I love that the main part of the restaurant used to be a train depot. The stained glass windows and decor is original."
