Diner Reviews
  • "We both enjoyed our salads topped with grilled salmon. Overall a great lunch and not much to complain about except the outdoor patio was not openned for the season yet and the long island iced tea on the drink special was not to my liking. Otherwise we really enjoyed it!"

  • "Brunch was average, at best. For 17.00, you can get better quality at any number of local eateries. that said, nothing was bad just boring an uninspired."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "First time we visited. Had two younger children with us. Adult food is fabulous. Kids menu is standard, but food quality for kids is definitely above average. Nice to see a higher end restaurant that is kid friendly. Parents and kids can get a great meal. Food didn't come out in a timely manner, which is my only complaint, but our order went in after a large party. Wouldn't have bothered us if we didn't have the kids."

  • "Had lunch with a group of people. All was good; food, atmosphere, service. Everyone enjoyed. Would recommend for others and will make return trips. Prices were slightly above where I expected but the quality fo the food made that point moot. I never mind paying the price if the food is good."

  • "Walnut Grill is probably my favorite place to eat...I go there with my husband and with my friends, lunch and dinner. The menu has different items on it, different ingredients, which I love! I haven't had one thing I didn't enjoy. It's a great place!You"

  • "It was my friends birthday and I suggested we come to Walnut Grill. What an excellent brunch. We both had it. I was amazed watching the young man keeping the food table always "stocked" We sat right next to the prime rib/omlette table. I was surprised there weren't two people running the area as the poor young man was doing a difficult task. He did a wonderful job. Although I didn't have the omlette, I did enjoy the prime rib. Excellent. The fish was very tasty. I didn't eat the breakfast items but my friend just loved what she had."

  • "I love your menu. It doesn't really adhere to the Lenten followers but you offer a wide variety of dishes where shrimp may be added."

  • "8 of our friends had dinner at Walnut Grill in Fox Chapel on Friday, February 28. We all had very good service and outstanding food. I honestly can't think of any improvements for the evening."

  • "There were just two of us and by coincidence, we once again had Peggi. She is so gracious. We sat in a far corner where my friend and I had some problems we needed to discuss. The food was outstanding. The Greek Pasta with shrimp. Love the shrimp! I had the salad also with blue cheese. The bites of cheese were present and well noted. I did have a take home of the soup, lobster chowder. I was very disappointed. Way too many potatoes and no presence of lobster. I would not order that again. All in all, it was a pleasant experience"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Excellent service. Our waitress was Peggi and I would highly recommend her. We came for lunch and had such delicious fodd. My new place to take friends for lunch. I live in Allison Park but if food is great then it is worth the drive"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "As a long-time patron of the restaurant, I must say that the food has gone downhill over the past several months. While the service and entrees (filet and halibut} were fine, the beets in the beet salad were diced so fine as to eliminate any taste of them and the sides were cool and tasteless. This is the second unsatisfactory visit in a row. In the past, I often took visiting guests and sizeable parties to the restaurant while it was still the Walnut Grille and the food was fine. I don't know if the closer connection to the parent restaurant has anything to do with it but I won't be visiting again for food unless I hear something that makes me think the quality of the fare has changed."

  • "We received a certificate in the mail from the Walnut Grill to celebrate our anniversary - "buy an entree get an entree at half price." Our 33rd wedding anniversary was actually on Friday, February 14, so I told my husband to make reservations so we could celebrate our anniversary and use the certificate that the restaurant sent us. Once at the restaurant, we discovered that you consider Valentine's Day as a holiday, so we weren't allowed to use the "anniverary certificate" on our actual anniversary. Unfortunately, the certificate expires at the end of February. We live about 60 miles north of Fox Chapel, so we're not in the area that often. I was very disappointed that we weren't permitted to use the certificate that you sent us."

  • "We've eaten here several times and will continue to do so. Have never been disappointed. Food is wonderful and waiter/waitress service is superb."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "While eating out on a late Sunday night with my wife, we had several issues with the service and food. Food that was ordered was never brought and had to be removed from our bill, all the food was entered at once so the main entrees sat under the warmer for a while and it was very obvious, the fish that my wife ordered was very dry with little sauce that was suppose to come with it, the presentation of an ordered dessert to-go was terrible (looked like it was just thrown in a to-go box), and our server had little knowledge of what beers were served and what kinds they were (and did not offer to inquire with the bartender about them). My wife and I were looking forward to a nice night out and I don't know if it could have been worse."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The restaurant was a great pick for our special day. It was pricey but worth it. Our server lacked table presence, but it wasn't entirely a bad thing... since it was in fact Valentine's Day. The only time it was bad is when we needed something. Also, there was live music, but they had their overhead speakers playing radio music, which was conflicting and slightly annoying. Half way through the night, they must have figured it out... because, they did remedy it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Walnut Grill for Valentine's Day. We were pleasantly surprised with the portion sizes of everything we ordered. The food quality was superb as well. We loved the fried pickles appetizer and each of our entrees was delicious and well-prepared. We didn't particularly like the drinks we ordered, but that was the only negative of the entire experience. We would highly recommend Walnut Grill for a great dining experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "when I made the reservation I asked for a nice seating area since it wAS MY ANNIVERSARY. WE WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ENTIRE PLACE AT A TABLE. NOT VERY ROMANTIC AT ALL"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The first time we ate here that our server wasn't personable. She didn't do anything wrong but no extra effort. We also felt a little rushed. Not a bad experience but not up to par."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Kimie, our waitress was very accomadating and pleasant, however the bus boys assigned to our table were non existent."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Great food but when we got there they didn't have our reservation made on Open Table site. Fortunately I had the email confirmation because it was a Friday night and there was a one and a quarter hour wait for walk ins."

  • "A great place to have a Different Dining Experience. A kind of Retro look with a wide selection of entrees. The food and service were excellent."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Very good food, service also very good. Love the birthday certificate idea, come every year to use it. Only major complaint is the people waiting to be seated clog the entranceway and you have to fight your way to get out, which is also a fire hazard. Ended a very enjoyable evening being mad at the idiots who blocked my way out, even after asking them to politely move, dropping my leftovers on the floor."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We had a delightful lunch. We needed to get some business done and were able to chose a booth. Ordering was prompt and food was the same. Salads this time and the shrimp was done to perfection. Wonderful service. We were able to finish our business Andy be on ourt way within an hour."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Tasty food, great prices, and a laid-back yet upscale atmosphere. I dined here with two other people for a meeting, and one of the things we were planning was a private event. We liked the food, the friendly service, and the value so much that we decided to forego the other three restaurants we had researched and scheduled our event with our hosts at Walnut Grill. They have private rooms available equipped with projectors and screens and sound systems. The Sunday brunch is also a wonderful value and VERY tasty, with all of the breakfast and lunch selections cooked to perfection. This is a fantastic place to go with friends, family (including kids during daylight hours), or colleagues."

  • "We thought the "new"menu format was awkward. Too stiff/heavy of a cover. We did have a variety of foods, but the MahiMahi was over cooked and dry. The beet salad was excellent again, but a little overdressed. But Michael was very accommodating and a great server."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "Food is varied and done well enough. Service is pleasant and very comfortable location. my only complaint is that there were several loud crying children this time. Always ruins my meals."
