    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.

  • Awesome Birthday Celebration at GC
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
