Menu was varied, of the 3 of us, 2 had beef. Server was attentive without being intrusive. View of the city and river was fantastic. I had not been here for over 30 years and it is the same - very reliable and consistent! Would highly recommend.
We had a reservation for 5:30 but thy were kind enough to seat us 20 minutes early. We sat several minutes unrecognized until a different waitress gave us menus. Our normal waitress finally showed up. She spilled a full glass of beer all over our table which wasn’t a big deal and we moved to a different table. After that we only saw her once every 15 minutes. We suspected she was on some type of drug. The ambience and view of the City is spectacular. The food was pretty good and the prices are pretty steep.
Lovely holiday brunch. Homemade pastries were incredible. Variety and selections accommodate everyone!
We have come with our whole family for a Holiday Sunday Brunch, nine years in a row. It is a very important event for us. We were highly disappointed this year. The earliest we could get a table for 9 people was at 2:00. Not loving that, but we thought it would be OK. We arrived early, but were seated about 15 minutes after our reserved time. Our server was pleasant and attentive enough to be helpful but not intrusive. He was good. However ... the buffet and some of the folks serving the buffet, were very disappointing. Several of the dishes on the hot buffet were clearly left on the heat too long. The chicken, for example, was inedible. The gentleman serving the meat carving station was very pleasant and helpful, but the prime rib had a strange, off-putting flavor (I had an outside piece, so perhaps it was just overly seasoned). Most offensive from our experience, though, was the fact that they were practically rolling up the table cloths all around us. LITERALLY, a cook working with the waffle station literally REFUSED to get a new batch of waffle batter, because "Look at the time. It's getting late." We had only been seated less than an hour, and some guests in line with us had been seated only 15 minutes prior to this exchange. The woman pointed to the clock and said "too late," and walked away. After insistence from a member of our group, another cook went into the kitchen and came out with the product. Moments later, someone who appeared to be a supervisor, stood right next to our table, SHOUTING out instructions to other workers about getting things gathered up. Our server had to ask her to be respectful of his guests. We felt very much like we were not welcome, and they couldn't get us out of there quickly enough. Also, the ladies room was absolutely FILTHY, fixtures needed cleaned, the floor was wet, and there were no paper towels in ANY dispensers.
We will have to consider whether we can give it another chance next year.
Reception rude. Waitress hard of hearing and did not know menu. When food came they did not know what was what.
As always, the food was great, the service was outstanding and the ambiance was well suited to fine dining. We can hardly wait until our next dinner at the Grand Concourse!
Very crowded in the front. My daughter had asparagus as her side dish (instead of fries) and it included two stalks of asparagus. Never seen it quite like that before. The fish tacos were greasy. The bread on the Gab Club sandwich was stale. Very disappointing for the price.
Great ambiance and beautiful view.
Everything was great. They treated me like a king. King Shaka Zoolu!
We spent the evening with good friends celebrating the holidays. We were seated in the River Room with a gorgeous view of the city lights. Everyone's meal was delicious, and our server was gracious and attentive. We'll be back soon for sure.
Staple of elegance in a first class city. One of the most beautiful restaurants in North America
Steeler game with grandson
A must-do experience for anyone who is visiting Pittsburgh. It is a memorable room, stunning scenery, and good food with plenty of variety.
The entire experience was outstanding food service and ambience. I would highly recommend this to anyone everyone in our party had a great time.
Go hungry! Great place for large groups!
It was a special day for my family and me, and we wanted to enjoy one of the best Sunday brunches in Pittsburgh. From start to finish, we had an amazing experience. The host staff quickly seated us with our reservations, and the wait staff was immediately providing us with drinks and instructions. The ambiance was beautiful with the historical building and the stain glass. Thank you to everybody at the Grand Concourse that made our day extra special.
Worth the money . Reservation a must. Bring your appetite
Great brunch before the STEELERS game!
Wonderful! Waiter was very attentive and helpful.
I normally come here for brunch and it’s always very tasty but dinner was amazing. Sitting with the view of the city lit up was a nice bonus. The lobster bisque and dynamite scallops were fantastic!
Disappointed in the bar staff. Bar was empty and the staff would not change one tv to a college football game our group (10 people) wanted to watch. We wanted to have pre-dinner drinks for over an hour and were told we could not sit at a table without ordering food. Keep in mind our bar tab was over $200 in an hour, we had dinner reservations, and the bar was empty. I had to mention these things to the manager and he made sure we were able to sit and a tv was changed.
Dinner service was slow and the server was just ok. Usually when dining at this level restaurant (Hyde Park, etc) service is exceptional.
This was our third time dining here over the last four years and probably our last.
Food was outstanding. Service was better. Bartenders made an excellent New Fashion bourbon drink. And the tradition smoked manhattan. On weekends they make a prime rib that melts in your mouth. Shrimp dishes tasted great not overly garlic’d and just the right amount of butter.
The saving grace of our visit was the beautiful view of the city at night. We both ordered the prime rib and while the portion size was good, we found it to be rather tough. Our server didn’t hear my husband’s order correctly and initially brought him the prime steak. When we brought this to her attention she brought a plate to our table so that he could scrape the steak onto it and still have the mashed potatoes to eat while she brought his prime rib. Very unusual protocol in my opinion. Overall a very disappointing visit.
The space is incredible to behold, but that’s where the good impression ends. The food was embarrassingly bad, for any price point, but especially for the exceptionally high prices they charge—overcooked, flavorless, and very dated cuisine.
Excellent!! This was our first time at the Grand Concourse for the Thanksgiving Buffet. We will definitely be returning next year.
Very disappointed in Thanksgiving Day buffet. Terrible food—all lukewarm. Beef could not have even been warm-so very rare. For a restaurant that specializes in seafood there was none , but salmon. None of the House specialities were served! No children’s selections. They usually have chicken fingers and Mac and cheese. Desserts were from a purveyor— not house-made and looked terrible. They offer valet parking , but the sign at the entrance said valet parking was full! Would not recommend for a Holiday, maybe not for anything.
We have lost count of how many Thanksgiving meals we have spent at the Grand Concourse. It is always wonderful and delicious.
I was happy to see the addition of a pasta bar this year. The chef made me a meat-free pasta dish.
I am still hoping for the addition of, or a change to, a meatless stuffing since so much meat is available elsewhere at the buffet.
I was not impressed with the Thanksgiving Buffet menu selections. The choices served were more inline with a family style chain restaurant than a 5 star premier restaurant. The Grand Concourse is known for its sea food and offered only dry turkey, bloody and cold Prime Rib roast sliced paper thin. The salmon was dry under the warmer and desserts were definitely lack luster. I loved the venue however I hated the menu. It is now apparent why the Thanksgiving menu was unpublished in advance of the holiday. I would rather have had the menu choices offered by LaMont.
We eat here every Thanksgiving. Always a good experience with great service and food.
I am allergic to onion. I knew it would be an issue for a Thanksgiving buffet but I wanted to take my son for a soecial dinner while visiting from California. I grew up here and temembered the Grand Concourse had a unique ambience.
They made me crablegs and steamed green beans with no hesitation. Noelle and the chef went way above and beyond! Their hospitality and kindness made the experience one to remember!
We go to Grand Concourse frequently for they superb Sunday brunch. This year we were unable to have our usual Thanksgiving celebration so went to their buffet instead. The food was great, although we were somewhat disappointed there were not more breakfast choices (specially the omelet station) available. We were seated in the room that overlooks the river, and there were too many tables jammed in the 4-top area, it was very crowded and uncomfortable for sitting. Our waitress was amazing though, and she charmed our difficult uncle, so it was all good in the end.
Professional and slick operation. Reservations for Thanksgiving buffet promptly honored. Wait staff outstanding and extremely friendly. No rushing. Best sticky buns ever with great desserts. Huge variety of well prepared food. Negative: the main event... the turkey and dressing...were ok but not great. Stuffing had a funny flavor and turkey got lost in the shuffle. But prime rib saved the day. Every thing else was so good made reservations for next year. Great way to spend a holiday dinner.
We enjoyed the professionalism of our server, the food was delicious.
Excellent service, excellent meal and presentation. Definately one of our favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh.
Brunch Reservations recommended in advance to get your preference of time, especially for larger parties. Food stations were explained well by server, who was very attentive. We sat in a semi private room away from the main restaurant. It was a great location and we could hear each other talk easily without having to scream across the table like some restaurants. The brunch specialty drink menu had a lot of variety with reasonable prices. Our family will be back!
Brunch was amazing! Doughnut station was incredibly delicious
This is a all you can eat brunch with a lot of options to make everybody happy. Food was definitely great, with abundance of meats, common breakfast goods, pastries, fruit, desserts... and the place (a former train station) is incredibly beautiful! My only complaint is that the staff is probably super overwhelmed with the quantity of people coming and going all the time, because some of our utensils, glasses and plates were dirty and the waitress forgot some of our drinks. That being said, again, the place is beautiful and the food is really, really good - just make sure you have a reservation for sunday brunch, because they are busy non stop, specially with big groups!!
it was very good - but i don't understand why it is so cold in the room by the river - there should be heaters or offer to allow folks to sit in the main dining room.
food was good - but it was disappointing that only 2 pieces of asparagus were served on each plate!!!
Lost our reservation and made us sit for almost an hour after we checked in for no other reason than that they negligently deleted us from the list after we arrived. Service was weird and the server was extremely spaced out and absent. Overall, the service was pretty poor for a restaurant where the food is thirty to fifty dollars a person. Would not recommend, find somewhere else if you're going to spend at this price level.
