Diner Reviews
  • "We recently had brunch at the Grand Concourse. Of course, the ambiance is always spectacular. However, it has been years since we last had brunch there. We recall that there were many more choices and more interesting choices in the past. The brunch was mediocre. The prime rib was full of gristle and touch. It is hard to believe it was prime rib. The seafood choices were scant with mostly salmon in one incarnation or another. The salad selection was minimal. This is a great spot to meet and greet but disappointing food wise and yet it was packed. This caused the service to be spotty. The price was high considering the food."

  • "The Grand Concourse has been our favorite for Special Occasions for years! I had my first Lobster there when I turned 21. We took our kids there for Sunday Brunch. They loved the unlimited bacon - LOL! We've celebrated special Anniversaries, had Weddings, had banquets, brought out of towers and just plain old lunch there. Like I said our favorite Pittsburgh Restaurant for years and it never gets old!"

  • "Went for lunch on Saturday. $40 with tip for me and the crab cake was the size of a tablespoon. Rice was shaped like a pyramid with broccoli. No rolls or anything. I was disappointed and I will not recommend to anyone. It was nice to see the station again but the food will not bring me back!"

  • "Food was pretty good, but I expect that at this price level. Service was not to the level it should be for this level of dining. We did not get that taken care of feeling. The woman who seated us took us to our table, walked very fast and was not very warm. When we were seated it took 15 minutes for our waiter to visit our table. Drinks went empty with no refills for periods of time. You get the idea. But the food came out of the kitchen on time and tasted very good. I would say back of house gets an A and front of house gets a D+."

  • "I admit, I have expectations of upper-tier restaurants, including food of superb to exceptional quality, a diverse wine list, great ambiance, and terrific service. The Grand Concourse provided all of the above with the exception of the last. I'll make allowances for the fact that the kitchen was swamped with a large wedding, and thus the serving temperature of the food wasn't to par. But I expect quality service for $80+/setting. This did not happen. Our waiter did three things that should be unforgivable at this level of dining. He lost track of our requests multiple times (for instance, we never DID get additional bread), he was absent when we needed attention (water, etc.), and he ignored our requests, "thinking we were joking.""

  • "We celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary there yesterday and it was awesome. Printed on out menus was a congratulations to us - which was very cool. The food was terrific - my husband had the Portabella appetizer and I had the crab cake, both extremely good. We both had the Chilean Sea Bass - his was broiled and mine was grilled (mine tasted better), both were excellent. Would absolutely go there again in a heartbeat."

  • "In the pasts 18 months I went to this restaurant several times. I've had alternating good meals and service one time, then poor service and cold food the next. Unfortunately, I was on the down side this time. Calamari and brie appetizers weren't even warm when served. My salmon was tasty, but the sides of broccoli and rice were down right cold. I like lightly steamed, hot broccoli with a meal, but this was cold and raw. I would have sent it back, but the server was not around and my guest was eating her meal. I ended up taking the entree home with the sides, and heated it to enjoy it. I've provided feedback to the restaurant directly in the past, but never had a response. I think I'll just go somewhere else."

  • "Food and service were awesome. We will definitely return and will highly recommend it to friends and family. Would strongly recommend online reservations. After unsuccessfully attempting to make reservations in person for the next morning's brunch, we were able to make them online with no problem."

  • "Met 5 of my college friends for dinner. The bar at the Gandy Dancer holds many happy memories of our youth. So after several martinis (great happy hour prices), we decided to dine in the Gandy Dancer part of the restaurant. Our server was helpful in making dinner suggestions. However,the linguini and clam sauce is still my favorite. The salad and warm rolls that accompanied the meal were delicious. We shared the chocolate lava cake. Absolutely Delicious!! I will be making a return trip for the Sunday brunch next month. The ambience of that grand building really takes a step back into history."

  • "we have gone here to eat a few times, but this was the worst of all. there was nobody in the resteraunt and it took our waiter forever to get drinks, refill bread etc. the food was terriable ordered a steak med-rare, and it comes out well done with hard as a rock asparagus. it was just terriable, and for $100.00 for my wife and i, i would much rather have went to a texas roadhouse, spent half the money, and actually recieved a good meal. no plans to go back again. save your money go somewhere else."

  • "I had ordered a RAW steak. They brought me a cooked steak, the waitress immediately took it back to the kitchen. The manager on duty came out to confirm that I wanted a raw steak. She gave me a dirty look as if my order was wrong. Then after another 10 minutes (my dates food was now cold) dropped off the uncooked meat without a single apology for making us wait. The waitress was super apologetic, however the manager was borderline rude."

  • "Expected to dine under the beautiful stained glass in the main concourse but were seated in a side room, but did have a nice view of the river. Since an event was held in the main fining room we didnt get to experience the grand stair case and stained glass we had come to see. Food and service was good but didnt meet expectation based on pricing. A good tourist restaurant but not my definition of fine dining."

  • "I had never been to eat here - Loved everything about the place. The food was all very good (especially the salmon, the donuts, and the hot bar!), but the building is just so cool that it adds to the flavor. The piano was also very nice to have. We sat toward the river with the views of the city, which was beautiful and you could see the trains passing by. But inside was just as beautiful with the buildings architecture (though inside is definitely more bustly with everyone going to the food stations as well as the noise level and piano). We took our 11 month old. Our waitress, Jennifer, was so friendly and helpful. I thought it was a very good price for the selection and quality."
