Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "good food, sat in the front dining room. why is the floor so sticky? that's not good."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I'm pretty picky when it come to dining out and I have not one complaint. The food was incredible, homemade dressings, a good variety of items on the menu. We were very pleasantly surprised and look forward to going back soon!"

  • "Honestly, I had been looking forward to trying Walnut Grill. I've heard a lot of great things. The biggest disappointment was the food. I ordered off the Valentine's Day special menu - the surf & turf. The menu was great, it had a lot of things I wanted to try. Unfortunately, the steak was literally the size of a ritz cracker. It was delicious and tender, but so tiny. And the lobster tail was okay, at best. It was cold and a little too squishy and chewy. I grew up on a beach, I've had great lobster tail - this was not it. I ordered the seasonal veggies, very tasty. They took up half of my plate, which felt like they were trying to hide the tiny steak. I guess I should have known when the menu didn't state the ounces for the steak."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "we had reservations & were seated quickly, our server was very efficient & friendly. Our food was served hot & looked very appetizing, my Tuscan Chicken was awesome & my husband had the Mixed Grille, he said "Best Dinner I had in years we will be back here for sure" We had Mothers Day Brunch at The Walnut Grille last year & we will be back this year too, Thank You!"

  • "Arrived earlier than our reservations seated to our table right away (5:45 reservation arrived 5:40) Ordered cocktails no appetizers and then ordered our entrees straight away. One hour later no entrees. Server was then informed that we had an 8:00 PM show to attend in town. She did apologize and could not understand what was taking so long. Restaurant was only half full. Several minutes later our order arrived with one of the orders having the wrong side dish. No one from management approached our table with an apology, an offer for a round of cocktails or anything for our extraordinary wait. Food was good but worthy of a one hour wait? Not sure about that."

  • "From being served on time on a Saturday night, through the fine draft beer selection and knowledgable, hard working bartender, to a very good meal served by an attentive waitperson, Walnut Grill proved to be a restaurant we will now frequent. Prices also quite reasonable."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great service and food. Great seats to eat and watch the game."

  • "My wife and I ended up here after we couldn't find a reservation for Valentine's day. This ended up being an excellent last minute decision. The food was excellent and the service was second to none. Gillian out waitress was very knowledgable about the menu and wine list, she made several suggestions along the way to pair with our wine choice. The meal was also spaced evenly, at no point from appetizer to dessert were we ever overwhelmed with the amount of food placed in front of us. I would highly recommend this place to any couple or family as it was a very friendly place overall."

  • "We chose Walnut Grill because of the location but wow we got so much more! The food was delicious and our service was outstanding! Our waitress was helpful with the menu and we took her advice on some selections. We were not disappointed! From salads to dessert, everything was outstanding. I rarely do a review but I just had to give Walnut Grill a glowing review for our experience."

  • "This was our first time at Walnut Grill and my wife and I were extremely impressed. The food was excellent and the quantity of food for the price was outstanding. Our server was very knowledgeable in suggestion various items on the menu. We will definitely dine again at Walnut Grill."

  • "We went for the happy hour (5-7). No special menu was given. We ordered appetizers and was charged full price even though ordered before 7 due to the fact that they were not on a special menu which we never saw NOR did the server ever mention. I will never go back to this restaurant for being so deceptive."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "The zucchini appetizer is a must try. The meal (1 salmon and 1 chicken) presentations were visually appetizing, and the bonus: the food was delicious. Our waitress provided excellent service. The entire evening flowed most comfortably -- from the time we were seated; we never had to wait long for anything (initial service, food or drinks), and never felt rushed. The restaurant and bar had a lot of activity going on, but nothing was so distracting as to interfere with our personal conversations. The evening was most enjoyable. If you're looking for good food, good service and a relaxing atmosphere, this is the place."

  • "Just moving back to Mt. Lebanon we were very interested in trying out the Walnut Grill. First & foremost the people were nice, the ambience comfortable, and the food tasted very good. We got our appitizer (brie / chicken / raspberry- Quesadillas .. delicous). We then had to wait over an hour for our meal to come. If were told once we were told 10 times that there was a large table holding up the kitchen. The two course meal took over two hours. In the end our meals were very good, slightly pricey for the portions. Spoke to some friends & family the next day and they had similar thoughts on the speed of the service. Think going forward we will make this just a happy hour place."

  • "We have been to this Walnut Grill before and had wanted to come back with friends. We enjoyed the atmosphere and food both times, however, this time our table was not ready when we arrived. We ordered drinks and they never came. When we got our meals she forgot most of our side dishes. Our server was flustered and kept making excuses for everything because they were not expecting a crowd on a Monday night. There were only 2 tables occupied in the room we were in. Overall the service was terrible. I'm glad only 8 of our party of 14 showed up."

  • "Good food, great service. Visiting from out of town and this Walnut Grill location was recommended to me and my husband for a quick date night. We sat in dining area but bar looked like it had a good atmosphere as well. The food was good and our waitress was excellent."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We were excited to try the brunch. The food was awesome. I don't think you need to pay $25 for a brunch when you can eat here for $15. Everyone was very pleasant and the restaurant is one of our favorite spots. We were not disappointed by anything. Try it, you'll like it!"

  • "Well worth the drive. Nice place to dine with friends and have the ability to hear the conversation. Server was great and not intrusive. Food selection is good, but not overwhelming - hate menus that read like a novel. We will return."

  • "Server forgot salads and brought out entrees first. Slow in general."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "Excellent wines available at decent pricing. May have been my date too, but atmosphere was very conducive to just spend time laughing, talking and (somewhat) quietly catching each other's eyes. We barely ate, but in the overall comfortable, yet classy atmosphere, it was pretty much irrelevant."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Walnut Grill would be a very welcome improvement over Applebee's or some other chain restaurant in another part of the city, but with it's location on Washington Road in the heart of Mount Lebanon, a stone's throw from two of Pittsburgh Magazine's top 10 restaurants, it is not up to the competition. Brunch buffet is never a favorite of mine, but the selection had variety and was basically decent. Avoid the pre-cooked and overdone Eggs Benedict and take advantage of the made-to-order omelets. And if you want a Bloody Mary not overwhelmed with Worcestershire sauce, be sure to specify that."
