    Upon arrival we were seated in the river room which has a beautiful view of Pittsburgh. I had ordered birthday menus that wished my husband and son a Happy Birthday and they were not presented. After asking, they had printed 2 not 5 which was very disappointing. The food we ordered was ok and the portion sizes were not comparable to the cost of the dinner. The noise level was overwhelming and we could not hear each other for the first hour of the dinner. Our next trip to Pittsburgh will be at a different restaurant.

    We arrived for a 5:15 reservation and were happy to find we could order a version of the "early bird special." The food was delicious and the service was fine. We would like to return and dine in the main dining room to experience the magnificence of the historic train station. Special events are scheduled on the weekends. We were happy to sit in a side room with a view of the river!

    I took my girlfriend here for a night on the town. The valet service was great upon arrival. I was disappointed that we were not able to sit in what the restaurant I believe called it's grand ballroom because of a wedding that was going on. But the food turned out great. I highly recommend the shrimp fresca, as it contained the best friend shrimp I have ever had. My girlfriend also loved the rolls, which the restaurant makes in house. The chocolate molten cake with ice cream was to die for too. Our waiter was great, and I could definitely tell he took an interest in every table's dining experience. We will definitely be back (hopefully next time there isn't a wedding going on.) 5 stars to any couples out there looking for a fantastic night.

  • Anniversary dinner
    20thAnniversary
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    This was our 20th anniversary dinner - As we showed up, the welcoming staff was very friendly and our menus said happy anniversary on the top of the menu. There was a VIP card put on the table as we sat down (we think this was because the reservations were for an anniversary dinner), but our waiter did not acknowledged it or say anything about the VIP card. He looked at the card with a funny look and picked it up. When we ordered drinks, my wife's drink took a very long time to be delivered (much longer than it should have been). Maybe he/waiter was overworked. To sum up the service was adequate, but not to the point of excellent or great. So it was a good experience, but the service was a bit slow, food was great/excellent.

    I took my daughter here for her birthday celebration, and it was wonerful! We were a little confused in the beginning, because one waitress started us off and told us the specials and while we were relaxing with a cocktail another girl came up and began telling us the specials again. My daughter had to tell the waitress we felt like she was rushing us, which she was, and that the other waitress had already told us the specials! She informed us that the other girl went home. The food was excellent, the piano music was beautiful and relaxing. The chocolate dessert and cheesecake was delicious. I am sure we will be returning here for dinner the next time we visit Pittsburgh.

    We made reservations on-line & requested table with a view as we were taking out of state guests who were celebrating their anniversary. They had a great table set up with VIP card on it. They gave the anniversary couple a complimentary dessert. our friends were very impressed as were we. Our server was fabulous. Great experience.

    Made reservations for for dinner and the hostess was very charming and welcoming. The table for two was a bit tight. After a while, I had to flag down a waitress to get our water filled. We ordered drinks and it took a while to get them. A floor manager came over and apologized for the delay in getting a server to us and provided on-the-house appitizers. Our food was good, but my lobster was a bit overcooked. All in all, it was a nice experience for us.

    We celebrated our daughter's 17th birthday. We selected the river room and the view was beautiful. The food was mixed but we would return. The lobster bisque was outstanding. The filet mignon was great and the portobello appetizer was also wonderful. A Caribbean inspired seafood dish was rather odd. I wouldn't get that again. The menus saying "happy birthday" at the top were a welcome repeat from last year--very much liked by our daughter.

  • Terrible Service!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    From the moment we were seated to the end our dining experience it only went from bad to worse. It took 45 to receive our drinks, part of my fathers appetizer fell on his pants, they forgot part of our appetizer order, my daughters meal came out when the rest of us were completed. Our server was bad so they put another server on to help us with our table of 6, but still service was poor. We live in Pgh and every weekend we try to different fine dining restaurants around the area. We hadn't been to the GC in 10 years. Unfortunately we won't be back. Not sure how they even stay in business. It is a tourist trap but it is certainly a beautiful restaurant.

    We found the variety of selection of food to be very good. The warm pecan rolls were delicious. There were many salad types-coleslaw, toss, Caesar, seafood. Shrimp cocktail was plentiful. The piano music was good but can't be enjoyed by everyone since the place is so large and has many rooms. We have been here several times before and found the roast beef quite rare to our liking. It would be nice to add a few different items since the menu seemed the same from our previous visits.

    My friend of 30 years and I visit once a year for a special event. Our first visit was 4 years ago and we were hooked. Over the years we have told many people how fabulous this place is. However, this last experience was not so great. We had an 8:00 reservation and arrived at 7:45. The man accepting our reservation was very condescending towards my friend and I. She was asking him questions and his reply was " we don't do that." Very short and rude. Also, my crab cakes were dry. Don't know if we will come back.

    Although the menu items we selected were well-prepared and priced just right, when we made the reservation, we requested a table in the main dining room. We were unaware that a large wedding party had booked the entire room and were not informed of this until the last minute. So were seated in the Gandy Dancer Saloon instead. We managed to enjoy ourselves nonetheless even though we were disappointed we couldn't be seated in the main room. But we did enjoy the views of the Monongahela, the Smithfield Bridge, and the boats on the river. We're from Cleveland but are frequent visitors to Pittsburgh since we have friends in the area. Kudos to the wait staff for their superb service.

    We have enjoyed brunch here for several years but noticed that this year they cut down tremendously on choices and did not have enough staff at stations creating long lines even though the restaurant was not that busy. We hope the restaurant stops cutting back or they will wind up to be just average and will lose a lot of customers

    Went here for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wait staff were great, the restarant was beautiful. We were sat on the porch with a beautiful view of the river and downtown. We got there when it opened at 10 so we didn't have to wait in line for food (especially the omelet station which got backed up). Everything was delicious, especially enjoyed the donut station.

    For a restaurant that wants to be an upscale establishment, the Grand Concourse misses the mark. The wine list is very limited and the choices are not the best. Food is not properly prepared. I ordered a medium rare rib eye and got a medium well. A table near me also had the same results. A nice place to visit for the ambiance but that it. Management is pretty much non existent. Really made us feel welcome when that started clearing all the tables around us to set up for a wedding the following night. We tried it, but I would not recommend it.

    We selected this restaurant from searching the web not knowing what we would actually encounter when we visited our son on college. What a wonderful experience!!! The Grand Concourse is absolutely beautiful, the food is wonderful and our waiter, Jimmy, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, made everything sound scrumptious. He was very attentive and professional!!! We sat in the River View room and on a sunny afternoon, we had a breathtaking view of the Allegheny River while enjoying a late lunch with our family. Our visit to Pittsburgh was made that much better!

    The sunset dining menu is superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the Martha's Vineyard Salad, Coconut Macadamia Shrimp, rice, broccoli and chocolate mousse. My husband loved his crab cakes, Charley's Chowder, asparagus, rice and chocolate mousse. Freshly baked Poppy seed rolls and salmon pate were also delicious. I prefer seating in the main dining room although this visit we enjoyed the city of Pittsburgh views from the River Room. Check out the Sunday Brunch too as it is simply the best in the region!

    I was not impressed at all. I didn't like the way the food was so scattered with no labels-I wasn't sure what some of the things were. I am only 5' -there were 3 bowls that were so high I couldn't see what was in them. We were there at 2pm and there were no visible signs of the omlet bar. We took family there for a 50th anniversary-we were all very disappointed. As for the food itself-we were very disappointed . We will not be going there again.
