In addition to food quality and ambience that exceeded expectations. The service was very well-timed. And it was nice to be able to get a single glass from a bottle that was of that high quality

The food was wonderful and the service was great! We had such an enjoyable meal. I had steak and lobster along with a pomegranate martini, apples and oranges martini, and creme brulee for dessert. Everything was delicious. The servers were so personable. I love visiting the Grand Concourse. I can't wait to go back.

Marty was a superb waiter and ambassador for this wonderful venue.
The food was delivered as fine food restaurants used to do!
Had the prime rib, delicious. Snapper Hemingway scores a 100.
A definite landmark of food and location.

A wonderful brunch! The Grand Concourse provided a delicious variety of foods. Quality food and a very reasonable price for an all you can eat buffet. You cannot beat the ambience of this Pittsburgh gem. We had a table overlooking the river and skyline of Pittsburgh. Great experience!

We were a bit disappointed with the Sunday Brunch that we attended yesterday - no bagels and cream cheese or other condiments for the lox (we had to ask for a bread basket that came with butter and salmon cream cheese), no potatoes or sides for the turkey and prime rib and no pasta station? I understand COVID and all that, but I would think more stations would provide the ability to better manage the flow of customers and have less congestion. It seemed like the options were much more limited and that was a bit disappointing.

Having waited a year and three months to the day for the Grand Concourse "Truly Grand Sunday Brunch" my wife and I excitedly anticipated what we agree was the finest breakfast feast Pittsburgh has perhaps ever seen. We were seated on the old station platform with a sun soaked view of the city. It could not have been a more lovely morning to enjoy the start of our sixth anniversary day.
We made our way to the cold buffet after waiting for a plate distributed by an attendant at the hot food line. The plate was neither hot nor cold . To our surprise we found it moved around the corner adjacent to the carving station. What dismay to see the focus of our craving diminished in number and display. Bowls and trays jammed together making the the crowd more like bed fellows than the politely cautious patrons the new serving procedures were meant to engender.
Gone was the cold poached salmon, gone the bagels and cream cheese for the smoked salmon. The intriguing ly delicious melon salad with lime, cilantro and cheese curds replace with generic fruit salad. I could go on. Food station attendants simply stated " we dont have cream cheese" and "we dont have bagels" when asked where they were. The question begging to be asked is why serve Smoked Salmon at all then and how is one to help themselves with the plater turned with the slices advancing away from the diner?? The quality of the smoked salmon itself was not what we are accustomed to at what was once our "special" go to restaurant for brunch.
This gloomy tale does have a hero though. Gwen our server rounded up a dish of cream cheese from the kitchen and was pleasantly attentive throughout the meal.
The prime rib was cooked medium to medium well, a reheat perhaps, but still tasty and scrambled eggs no too over cooked. We will return but the next time with hesitancy rather than glee.

Food was nice - pricey but fair compared to other high end restaurants in Pittsburgh. Wine was expensive by the glass and choices were limited.

The building is beautiful and the view from the porch is nice.

Only thing that bothered us was the waiters mask kept drooping off his face. We prefer to eat places where masking is used in respect to others.

My impression was that it used to be a fancy restaurant with awesome food, but quality has gone down and they need to modernize a little. I had scallops, rice and asparagus and also a salad to start. With the exception of the scallops (because I never buy scallops), I could have made a better version of my meal at home for a fraction of the cost. My husband ordered steak and potatoes, and again it wasn't that impressive. Just a slab of meat on a plate with a scoop of salty potatoes. I was impressed by the building, which is a great piece of architecture, but the restaurant needs to improve its standards and presentation. We went there because we had a gift certificate, but we enjoy better meals elsewhere for less than half the price.

Service was spotty..very long gaps between service. Food was not good, poor quality ingredients, and taste was off(salty). Unfortunately, a bad experience.

We have gone to GC for years and we’re accustomed to a longer dinner, but yesterday was a 3 hour meal when the restaurant was 1/2 full at best.

Food was so so. The place needs a deep clean. The carpet was disgusting out on the part near the water. Under the windows and rails there were so dirty. It’s honestly look like somebody haven’t vacuumed in that restaurant in over a month. Waitress was very attentive. Scallops were over cooked.

This was our first visit to Grand Concourse and we were visiting Pittsburgh from out of town. It turned out to be a highlight. We were staying on the West Side so we took the Monongahela Incline down rather than driving. That was a very fun and special way to arrive, with gorgeous views from above and on the way down. We actually arrived an hour early for our reservation and were intending to have a drink in the bar but it was closed for a wedding, as was the main dining room. Luckily, the hostess kindly said we could be seated early and showed us to a small table in the glassed in veranda. All the tables there have a wonderful view over the river and bridges. Our waiter was really busy but he was friendly, attentive once the tables cleared out a bit and the service was excellent. The food is very good, well prepared and plated. The seafood quality is really good although a bit overpriced. The seafood trio had salmon, shrimp and crab cake, all very nice, a generous side of broccolini and nicely seasoned gingered rice. We had an excellent Prosecco Rose and French Chardonnay. Wine prices are a bit steep too. We had the key lime pie which was outstanding, very tart and creamy. We were able to peek in the Grand Dining room, which was gorgeous with the ornate historic stained glass decor. Definitely a must see if you’re Visiting Pittsburgh, or for a special occasion.

Service was lackluster. Our waiter was attentive when he was with us but in a hurry to run off and didn't come back for long periods of time. Would have liked to have been seated in the main dining room or river room, but apparently not an option for larger groups. Love the ambiance and food but service needs greatly improved.
