- good meal atmosphere is datedOpencarDined on 11/22/2014Menu had great and clever selections and drink list was festive. Music was from the 80s (bad 80s) and more appropriate for a bar only. As restaurant filled up, music was less imposing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great ExperienceBirthdayGirlDined on 11/21/2014Was there with two friends to celebrate two birthdays. The food was excellent from the beet salad to the farfalle pasta with chicken and pancetta (yum!). And, even though the restaurant was jam packed, we were encouraged to take our time, relax and enjoy the evening. I was expecting to be rushed along so they could turn over the table so I was quite impressed that they actually did let us take our time and enjoy! I will be adding Walnut Grill to my "favorites" list!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Date NightTheSeeker0Dined on 11/20/2014This is the third or 4th time we have eaten there.. The service was as expected, wonderful as we always get to be seated at "our" table The food was wonderful, and portions were large and we had to take some home for lunch the next day; An overall very enjoyable meal as usualSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Small table disappointed usredwalkerDined on 11/15/2014Good food but our little corner table was both too small and on the path between kitchen and bar so there was constant traffic going by. There were many other booths empty when we arrived at 5:30 so I was disappointed that we were not given one of those. Our table was too small for our plates and other paraphernalia on the table.....special list, salt, pepper,sugar, etc.....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, great servicejanie25Dined on 11/8/2014Pleasant dining experience made even better by an accommodating host at the door, and one of the best servers we've encountered.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingRobertDined on 10/25/2014The host/hostess apparently cancelled our reservation rather than checking us in so we had to contact the manager a few days later to get our points. Had to ask the waitress for a water 3 times. My wife's fish was cold in the middle - and all the courses came way too quickly. Could have been spaced out better. Wont be back - don't consider this an open table-caliber restaurant. On a positive note, when I contacted the restaurant to inquire about the reservation being cancelled I was transferred to the manager (Scott) - he was very responsive - contacted open table immediately and informed them that we had in fact dined that evening, and called me back within 15 minutes. A few minutes later I had my points in my account.
- Solid ValuejuanjoDined on 10/24/2014My wife had cocktails and appetizers. Three appetizers will easily feed two normal people. I recommend the Ahi Tuna and the Smoked whiskeys cocktails.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pleasant ExperienceMaryKayDined on 10/23/2014Requested a round table for the six of us. They were able to accommodate us. Server was very friendly and service was excellent. Our meals were really good, too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Wonderful experienceTheSeeker0Dined on 10/9/2014My companion and I had a lovely dinner at The Walnut Grill in Fox Chapel We were seated at once and our server was Johnny on the spot asking our drink preferences.. The French Onion Soup was outstanding, the flavor was just as I expected. We both had the crusted Flounder along with sides of sweet potato and vegies. All in all the food was very tasty, and was more than Marilyn could eat.. She took the excess home for a nice dinner the next night.. All the food was perfectly cooked and was very, very tastyolkiiiSpecial Features:

- ConsistentPatrickDined on 10/3/2014I know what I am getting with Walnut Grill. Good food, good service, fair price. Consistency should be a metric of all restaurants and this is high quality.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Limited coffee!OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 10/1/2014We eat dinner at this restaurant one to two times per week. We've never had this waitress. We were excited to sit on the heated patio. Things were really disappointing when the waitress kept forgetting the 1st cup of coffee after my companion finished his beer. She finally brought the cup of coffee. She brought the check while we were finishing dinner. She never came back to the table even after we were waiving attempting to get her attention as she replenished her own beverage at the outside bar. It was so terrible that we had to adjust her tip cutting it in half.....
- Always excellent!!!LittleDebbieDined on 9/21/2014Always excellent food, drinks, and service. Wonderful experience every time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ReviewanniversaryDined on 9/13/2014The service was great, we were celebrating our 17 year anniversary, the food was incredible, except for 2 surprising finds for such a great place. In my wife's side salad was a lettuce core, about an inch and a half long, pretty hard to miss. We had a carmelized walnut ice cream ball for dessert, it had a strawberry on the edge of the bowl. The strawberry looked like it had been frozen and then thawed. It was a deep ruby red color, darker than a 'good' strawberry looks and should not have been used for a garnish. It took away from the look of the dessert, which was delicious. Overall the meal was fantastic, but somebody overlooked 2 things that take away from your perfection. Your owner would not have been happy. Quality ControlSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious food, great service!pghkidDined on 9/10/2014Went to Walnut Grill for the first time with a friend. The server, Kimmy, was very attentive and friendly. She had great recommendations and the food was delicious! It was very hard to choose from the large selection of entrees. I will definitely be back with my better half!Special Features:
- Great Dinner!RickDined on 9/2/2014Went to dinner on a Tuesday evening. Facility undergoing renovations, so the ambiance score is not really reflective. Food was very good, and the waitress was very attentive and efficient. The ahi tuna appetizer was outstanding, as was the stuffed shrimp entree. my guest was in need of a gluten free menu, which was available and had a variety of choices. For some unknown reason, the restaurant closed and hour before it's posted closing time. There were several people still in the bar area.Special Features:
- Really Enjoyed ItPgheastsideDined on 8/23/2014The food was excellent. Many options. Would go back again. Only complaint is the chairs are really uncomfortable. I would request a booth next time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/10/2014We love WG but Sunday buffet was disappointing this time having potato salad? and no breadI would recommend this to a friend.

- Good was fair, service was great!Kori22VIPDined on 7/24/2014I had lettuce wraps & my friend had the BBQ chicken flatbread! Food was good, but not great! However, our waitress was friendly & loved the outdoor dining!Special Features:
- Friday Night PleasurefrequentfridaydinerDined on 7/18/2014I dined at Walnut Grove on a Friday evening in July and was lucky to be seated outside. Not sure why that adds to the ambiance, but was terrific on a summer evening. The food was delectable and the server was friendly and efficient. This might have to go on my list of favorites. I'll definitely be back.Special Features:

- Great Outdoor DinnerGoodServicePleaseDined on 6/28/2014We always head to the Walnut Grill in Fox Chapel when we want to have dinner or lunch outside. Lots of tables in the open or under cover if its raining. Nice service and good food.Special Features:

- Not as good as beforeLincsMAMADined on 6/17/2014I don't know what's going on there, but the last two times we have gone, we've been less than pleased. This time the server got snippy with me when I asked her about Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays. I saw it on their website, told her this, and she went all on to how she's worked there for a year and a half and they never did that. Then, I brought it up on my phone, she talked to her manager, and then came out and told me they'd take my son's meal off and acted like they were doing me a favor. "We'll take it off THIS time." It's on their website!! (It may not be since this, but it was there!). I don't think we'll be back.Special Features:
- Always solidScottVIPDined on 6/7/2014Although the decor in the main dining room is outdated compared to their bar look/feel, the Walnut Grill is always an excellent spot to grab a bite. Taste, interesting food; friendly, professional staff; easy parking. All-in-all, just a great spot for dinner.Special Features:
- Nice place for dinner.OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/31/2014We made reservations so were seated immediately. Though we waited a little longer than one would expect for someone to come to our table after being seated (there were 4 of us) Our waitress was very apologetic and offered a free dessert to the table to make up for the wait. The food was fantastic, appetizers (deep fried pickles, which I personally don't like but the others enjoyed them, artichoke dip and fried provolone were both amazing) Our entrees were served in an appropriate amount of time and were all very good. The flourless chocolate cake we all shared was delicious!Special Features:
- Always a great experienceDateNite2Dined on 5/30/2014Had a wonderful dinner (specials are alway exceptional). Elise is always very accommodating & offers perfect service. We look forward to a few outdoor evenings in the summer.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 5/30/2014Service was oh my gosh crazy slow. "Sorry! (Smile) We're really busy!" ... But this isn't the first Friday that you have experienced since you opened. And while the kitchen may be busy, that doesn't mean, old plates cannot get cleared, and water glasses get refilled, and heck, a slow kitchen is a great opportunity to sell more drinks! But no. None of those things happened. We like Walnut Grill a lot and we will be back. But because you are busy and we are supposed to understand, at the same time, you do not charge us less ...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently good food and servicePJaxDined on 5/11/2014My family dines at Walnut Grill at least once a month. The food is always very good, service and atmosphere is also very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great place for a great bite.ScottVIPDined on 5/8/2014Food was very good. Prices are great for the quality. Service is charming.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food keeps me coming backScottVIPDined on 5/3/2014Usually, once a restaurant expands to multiple locations, it loses it's shine. But the consistently creative and tasty food at the Walnut Grill keeps it worth visiting again. The Blackened Salmon BLT sandwich is one of Pittsburgh's most intriguing treats. On top of that, the service is (usually) very good. Walnut Grill is well worth putting in your restaurant rotation.Special Features:

- Great Spot!PghErinDined on 4/26/2014This was our first time here and we were very happy with everything about our visit. The food was delicious, and our server was great, and very patient with our rowdy 1 year old. We will definitely be back!!Special Features:
