Diner Reviews
  • "The Walnut salad is delicious (my companion said he wished the beets in the beet salad were not so minced). My entree arrived VERY hot, a lovely change from the usual lamp-heated sorta warm. All was pleasant and I would go there again. My only suggestion and wish would be for more vegetarian entree options. I had the only one on the menu, and while it was good, I don't want to have to eat the same thing every time I go to a restaurant."

  • "I was a little disappointed to discover that they jacked up the brunch price on Father's Day without prior notice on their website. I wasn't suprised they price gouged on a holiday but it would have been nice to not be surprised upon arrival. $128 for brunch for 5 people with no drinks was a little crazy considering it was average buffet food at best. I pay the same price for the buffet at the Rivers Casino and it has way more choices and includes unlimited drinks. I probably won't be back."

  • "Their menu was very ambitious, so I was skeptical- usually when the menu is so long it stretches the kitchen beyond what they can pull off- but they proved me wrong. Everything was very well prepared and delicious. Ordered the mixed grill and they got each individual item perfectly- tuna was seared on the outside and and raw in the middle, salmon was cooked through, and filet was perfect medium rare. I would imagine it is hard to get all three perfect on the same plate when all three are cooked differently- the fact that they did tells me the kitchen is in control. All other dishes in our party were very well prepared and raves were earned from everyone. Service was impeccable. We will be coming back."

  • "Even though the place was bustling, our server was extremely attentive and helpful. The food was selectable and the atmosphere delightful. Our drinks were prompt and delicious, and of course, dessert was perfection."

  • "My husband and I went to Walnut Grill to celebrate my birthday. The service was very good - our waiter was attentive and friendly, and the manager stopped by to ask how our dinner was. The food was excellent - well-prepared and delicious! "

  • "We've gone to WG - Mt. Lebanon for the past two years. Last year was great - good selection of food. This year wasn't so good - empty pans, not the selection of last year, and to my wife's dismay, no cheesecake. I hope that they are back on their game next year. The food was good, just not as good... "

  • "It was our first time there for a brunch, and it was very nice! It worked out going for Mother's Day and Mom was really impressed! Our reservations were after a rush, so the food was scarce and cold, but they brought new items out as soon as we asked. Very enjoyable!"

  • "Had had drinks in the bar area once before. But to take my mother and family there for Mother's Day and have an inefficient, unconcerned, aloof server and service where my mother's food (pasta) was watery, lacking flavor and bread was never brought to the table (even though promised twice), was a disappointment I don't care to relive or recommend. The desserts we tried - probably in an attempt to recapture some flavor in our meals - were small, subpar and overpriced. I should have spoken to the manager, but it would've made my mother uncomfortable, more than she already was (apologetically so)."

  • "It is basically a bar they put average food in containers on the bar. This is probably ok as a bar and they should stick to that. It is way overpriced for a bar brunch. I would not recommend going here "

  • "I like this place for a regular weeknight out or a non-special weekend spot. It's not fine dining. But, the food is good enough. The dishes almost always seem to have some type of food left on them. This comes from a dish washer who does not know how to properly operate the dishwasher and a staff who is not inspecting their stations. Decent enough food. But, get it together with the dishes!"

  • "Great appetizers (Artichoke Dip and Pulled Pork Nachos) and drinks. We had steaks. Mine was way overcooked, but I sent it back with no problem and had another quickly. The service was excellent. We will definitely go back."

  • "I loved the Walnut Grill in Shadyside, but I'm assuming they are not one in the same. I have been there twice now (the second time was me giving it a second chance). The food is always sub par (no flavor etc) or unedible (chicken, sun dried tomato pasta; I swear they used either canned chicken or boiled chicken). I had the fish tacos the second time. It appeared that they put 2/3 cabbage shreds and 1/3 fish in each taco. The bread and butter selection is acceptable. Although my cocktails were yummy, it took about 30 min for it to come out after ordering. We saw our waitress only about 3 times during the whole meal. It appeared as if she was waiting on the entire back room that we were in, which seemed like a bit much for her. "

  • "Alex is the best! And the food was the best buffet in years! C u Mothers' Day?"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The menu is varied enough to please any family. The roasted beet salad with goat cheese and caramelized walnuts is a winner, and the new Gin and Juice with limes and sage is delightful. The service was attentive. We'll go back."

  • "Our services was extremely prompt and friendly and the food was out of this world. This was our first time here and we will definitely return. If I could give 6 stars on service, I would."

  • "We enjoyed the varied selection of the buffet and the quality of the food. The service was friendly and prompt. We have already recommended it to others."

  • "Our server was great. Very freindly and accomedating. Our food came out way way overcooked and our server and the managment was more than gracious about remaking our food and comping some drinks and dessert. They handled the situation so nicely. Our food ended up wonderful and I will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We've had several great dinners here, and 2/3 times fantastic service. Our most recent dinner service was adequate, waiter was attentive but rather mechanical. Overall easy to recommend. We've (50's) have gone with 20 somethings and 80 somethings- all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Tables are a little close together, can make for some difficulty with conversations, but booths were terrific! (missed the mints at the end of the meal this last visit!)"

  • "The atmosphere, food and service was outstanding. The crab cakes were the best we had ever had. The sides were delicious and the salad was so well presented. All of this provided us a very pleasant evening."

  • "they were out of ice tea and the honey chicken strips which was very very out of character for that resturant!!!!!! ice tea ---please"

  • "I had high hopes but I was let down. I decided to give the brunch a try. I wish I would have stuck with ordering from the menu. Not only was the line like a cattle call, as all brunches are, with kids running amok and people shoving, but I could have forgiven this if the food quality was anything better than it was. The fruit was dry, potatoes hard, bacon undercooked and sausage overcooked. It reminded me of a lunch line in a cafeteria. The pastries were hard and stale as well. Service was subpar, I felt like I was offending the server when asking about items. Maybe I'll give it another try for a lunch or dinner, but I would never try the brunch again. Restaurants like Eat N Park offer way more, better quality and at half the price."

  • "Our waitress, Robin S., was very courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The Balsamic Salmon, Flounder and Stuffed Shrimp were excellent. We also like the Liberty House wines. Thank you very much for your Veterans Appreciation Tuesday dinner offering. A U.S. Navy Veteran."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Rather than ask if there was anything else we needed, the server kept asking if we were done with our food or could I take things off the table. It was obvious some members of our party were not done with even half of the meal when the server began to ask. We felt rushed, as if they were ready to turn over the table for the next seating."

  • "Good food and atmosphere make for a fun night out with friends."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was our second time to Walnut Grill and the experience was a little different than our first visit. The service wasn't as good because we were never told if they had any specials or soups of the day. Our appetizer was a burnt and the restaurant was out of baked potatoes. Overall our meal was good but it wasn't as great of an experience that we had the first time."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was our second time at Walnut Grill and it was just how we remember. Delicious food, wonderful ambience, and friendly staff. Only hesitation was that we waited over 30 minutes for our entrees after our salads and another 25 minutes after our table was cleared for our check. Great place though!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I went here on a spur of the moment date. We used OpenTable to book our reservation. It was very quiet during dinnertime, even though all of the occupied tables were grouped into one area. The service was fast and efficient. I definitely want to go back during a busier time to get the full experience."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "We had a lunch recently and I thought the food was quite good. Our waitress was terrific. My only thought is that the ambience is a bit like a sports bar rather than a good restaurant that features quality food and a really nice dining experience. Great for lunch."

  • "Love the half-price bottles of wine on Wednesday, the food was delicious and our server was beyond attentive. Would have given service 5 stars if it weren't for them bringing out the food so quickly. I know it seems silly, but it is daunting and uncomfortable when your salad comes out with half of your appetizer left to go and meals before salad is done. Everything came out hot and delicious (as usual) I just would have felt more relaxed if we had time to taste the last food that was brought to our table before the next course arrived. This must be common for them because it is the second time it has happened to us at this location. Next time I think I'll delay our dinner order until after the app shows up."
