    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.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My last visit to the Grand Concourse had me quite upset. I had made reservations for two about a week ahead of time and specifically stated, "please seat us in the center, it will be my guest's first time to the Grand Concourse." When we arrived, we were taken all the way to the back room, which had a view of the city on the water. Once arriving, I realized there was a wedding reception taking place that night. However, I had asked to be seated in center because I thought it would be the MAIN ROOM. What made matters worse was that we were the farthest tables from the windows to have a nice view. I would have appreciated a simple phone call to inform me there would be no seating in the main area due to a wedding.

    My parents wanted to go to this resteruant to celebrate their 64th anniversary, it was a disaster. The waitress must have been new, nothing went right we were given the wrong food at the wrong time. We received our entrie before we were given our salads. My mother finally received her entrie when my dad finished his desert. The soup was cold or the crab cakes and oysters were over cooked I would hope this was just a bad day. I know my parents did not enjoy themselves on this day, but I think they would like to try it again.

    Always so beautiful and very clean on this visit. The glasses were spotless (always a pet peeve of mine) We were treated like VIPs. Quite disappointed in the food quality on this visit. Crab cakes were dry and looked like they had been sitting out all day. The parmesan crusted chicken coating was soggy and somewhat tasteless. The menu is old and tiring and needs totally refreshed and redone.

We valet parked both of our cars, the waiter saw to it that our cars were brought up for us when we left. The food was excellent! One of the nicest dining experiences. We will be back.

    Didn't start out well. Arr'd @ 7:13 for 7:15 res. & ck'd in. Wasn't greeted, but was told they'd let us know when they had a table for us. We went to bar. About 7:35, hostess came in & asked for "Kevin 'Benton', pty of 2". I asked if she was looking for "Kevin 'Clifton', pty of 2". She said no & continued calling out "Kevin Benton" (Res. was made online; I know how to spell my name) She came back about 10 min later & said they'd made a mistake & they 'were' looking for us. Finally got to our table; waiter greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" wish along with menus printed with "H.A." on them.(Again, res. made online). We aren't married; were there to celebrate my birthday. Just couldn't get it right. Waiter was great, but service was slow

    We have been to Station Square before, but this was our first dining experience at Grand Concourse. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent. I really enjoyed the lobster bisque. Looking at the history of this old train station via photos helped to pass the time while we waited for our table. The berry moscato sangria was absolutely delicious. I will have to learn how to make this drink. We will definitely bring out of town visitors to eat here and will also come for Sunday brunch.

    We loved the look of this restaurant! Staff was friendly, great service. On the other hand, the food was not nearly what we expected for the price. It wasn't bad but with what they charge it should've been excellent and "not bad" doesn't cut it. I would be willing to give it another shot though, everyone has off days and our reservation was an hour before closing...

    Had a wonderful brunch this past Sunday. When I booked on Open Table I did not realize there was ONLY the brunch and not the regular lunch menu (somewhat disappointed). The brunch is set up beautifully and spread out nicely so there is no crowd(s) not "cafeteria line" feeling. Of course the venue is gorgeous so what else do we need, thats for sure. The brunch food was delish, plentiful, and beautifully presented (even the childrens table with cute little pbj sandwiches, chicken fingers and fries and some candy dishes as well - great job folks). Will get back again for the regular menu and will review thereafter. Kudos!

    Sunday Brunch at the Grand Concourse is an incredible treat. The interior decor is breath taking, truly grand, yet the atmosphere is very relaxed - not at all pretentious. It is a Sunday brunch you can truly enjoy with your family, all ages. The wait staff seems to always be at your elbow, without being intrusive. If you are a foodie, you can put your nose in the air and be pretentious... or you can appreciate that you are in an incredibly beautiful example of turn of the century craftsmanship, where the service is excellent and the choices are almost endless with something to please everyone. The food is solidly good. I think they do an amazing job serving such a crowd yet making your personal experience relaxing and enjoyable.

    Our family was in town from Detroit for our nephew's wedding and celebrated a ‘51st’ birthday at GC the evening before the wedding festivities. With nine in our party, all of us were very pleased with every aspect of our evening. The evening view of the river was captivating. Appetizers were outstanding - we ordered a second round of Dynamite Scallops! Dinner was spectacular and dessert, Bananas Foster Crème Brulee, was served and quickly devoured. We then toured the main dining area and enjoyed snapping few pictures with the lavish décor and majestic stained glass cathedral ceiling. Such a splendor to celebrate with loved ones in this magnificent historical restaurant. The staff made our evening and visit very special. Thank you!

    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!
