  • "I 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."

  • "Great food. Adequate service. Never greeted. Nice corner booth."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We 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!"

  • "Although the decor in the main dining room is outdated compared to their bar look/feel, the Walnut Grill is always an excellent spot to grab a bite.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."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Service 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 ..."

    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Usually, 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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
