I loved everything about this place except the waitress. I took my special guy out for his birthday. I asked for a song, a cupcake, or just something to acknowledge him for his day and nothing. The man said he would do it and the waitress did not remind him. Big ball drop. I dont drink but ordered a bottle of wine for dinner to make it special. The lady kept pouring big glasses full. I wanted to cork it and take it home. She was too pushy. Even with the food. She would suggest something and immediately she would say i will put that in. I had to say mo more than i said yes. I would definitely go back but the server i would have to pass the peach.
Out of all the times we’ve been there, this time was the best yet! Food was SPOT ON, service was superb. Planning to do brunch here monthly!
My best friend was visiting from NYC and chose GC for Sunday Brunch on a beautiful spring morning - the atmosphere was festive, food stations were accommodating and plentiful, and the service (Danke Herbert!)was attentive and helpful. Looking forward to returning with my family as the weather continues to get nicer and nicer!
What a terrific restaurant in a historical building. So special! The brunch was great. Lots of choices and everything was tasty. Our service was fine - waitress was attentive until the end when we could not get a coffee refill after asking several times. Not sure what distracted her, but we were disappointed not having coffee with dessert.
The Sunday Brunch at the Grand Concourse cannot be beat! There is everything that you could want to eat and more! The service never disappoints.
Fabulous brunch! Great variety of food for every taste. One of the best I have ever been to. Will definitely be back and recommend!
I go to this restaurant for my birthday every year. It is and remains a solid place to go for celebration or just to go and enjoy brunch. The service was very good and the food remains delicious.
Dinner was perfect as was the service and surrounding. Sat in the room by the river right at the window. Felt like we were in a dining car. A definite Pittsburgh gem!
Disappointed in our overall experience for my Mom's birthday. We were seated in the river room (which we knew ahead of time) because of a wedding, but our table for 6 felt like it was in the way of everyone passing by. My chair was bumped into 5 or 6 times. Also, my entrée was (coconut shrimp) was overcooked and lacked much taste. Others in the party were generally pleased with their entrees (crab cakes and pasta). And, I have to say I was disappointed that they didn't even give my Mom a free dessert or drink for her 90th! In my opinion, not with the price we paid.
Had a great dinner and as usual, wonderful service from our favorite server Herbert.
We ordered the "early dinner" that included salad, entree and dessert which we think is a great value and the food preparation was great. This is our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh with Morton's Steak, Monterrey Bay and Le Mont following.
Hi, the food was good. The atmosphere awesome. The service except our server as she was clearing the table asked my boss "if she would like to lick her plate clean?" Which she had already done. My boss felt really insulted. We choose Grand Concourse for both family occasions and buisness ones too
Excellent food, service and great views of Pittsburgh. We truly enjoyed this dining experience
Terrible service waited forever for a drink menu waitress waited on us at her convience didn’ Want to make a special trip to retrieve a menu. Went for brunch and were out of a lot of different food not replenished. Very pricey big disappointed
Great service and good was delicious
The silverware on the table was sticky, as if it was never washed. I asked for it to be changed and then we waited for over 5 minutes for new silver to be brought to the table. I was told it was being washed - it was surprising to me that they don’t have extra silverware for their guests. Then there was no salt and pepper shaker on the table and no sugar. We asked for a booster seat for my son several times and one was never brought ot us. Given the poor presentation/experience a member of the management staff never came over to apologize or say anything. Overall, we were disappointed with the experience there and even though we go there often, we are most likely not going to go back.
Nicely done!!...service was outstanding, they were able to get a quiet table with a view of the city for our special occasion.
Outstanding! There is nothing I can say negative. Everything was top notch!
Came here for our anniversary dinner and it exceeded my expectations. The food was phenomenal and the view was amazing.
I've dined here several times before and have been moderately satisfied with the food, but enjoyed the view and ambiance. This time, the food was over-cooked, service was slow and inattentive and my overall experience was poor. The manager did come by and I explained my disappointment, which she politely listened to, but did nothing about it, not even comped a cup of coffee!!! Dinner with wine was close to $200, which I will spend elsewhere next time, like Morton's or LeMont. I'll try this restaurant in 2019.
I brought my friend here for lunch for her birthday. She is still saying how much she enjoyed it.
Our waitress Kelly was the best.
Food was very mediocre but service and experience were good
Fiancé had mom and best friend in for dress buying weekend. We took them to dinner it was great.
The historical setting of what was once a vibrant train station makes for an enchanting dining ambiance.
Wonderful food and atmosphere.
For the most part everything was good but the omelets seemed to lack a bit of flavor and they should offer to put different types of onions in instead of just the mild flavored ones, as for there meat buffet I would suggest adding more flavorful sausage and other meats and using a more thick bacon that is still just as crispy, and they should find a way to organize things a little better and I think it might be a good idea to have a means of selecting what ones wants on their omelet before getting in line so that all one has to do is wait until their number is called rather than stand in line
Enjoyed immensely! Service was great!
Fantastic ambience, which should be a must for any visitor to the Burgh. The Sunday brunch has a good selection of food at a reasonable price.
Was very excited to go to Grand Concourse and enjoy its historic and beautiful setting. Upon arrival we were seated in the back room away from the main dining area, this was far from the main dining room and a totally different experience. Very dark, a little too loud, giving off an old tavern like feel- not what we were expecting. It took over 20 minutes to even get water, my soup came out cold, we had over three different people service us, my dates Tuna was severely undercooked and the Filet Mignon was simply nothing special. The manager was very courteous and did credit us for his tuna as well as offering free dessert. Overall am deterred from ever returning, overpriced for the value and incredibly poor service.
The service was terrible; while they did apologize snd explained they were having issues in the kitchen, our food took 90 minutes to come out even though many around us seem to get theirs. Once it finally came, my son’s steak was so rare it had to go back. The remaining 3 meals seemed to have been sitting under a heat lamp. They did comp us two of the meals and provided dessert to our sons. The waitress was gracious but, overall, very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber.
Had some $ on my Landry's card for my birthday that were about to expire so we chose Grand Concourse because we haven't been there in awhile and they had a Smoked Cherry Manhattan on the menu that sounded good but when we ordered drinks I was informed that they didn't have the ingredients for it. I ordered something else but sometime later the manager came out and said she was able to make me the drink and offered it on the house, if I still wanted it. I did and she made it for me. I had great expectations but as Topper said, it wasn't all I had hoped. For $20 I wouldn't be able to recommend it.
We shared a shrimp cocktail which was good (no chemical taste and cocktail sauce with a bite, I love that).
My SO ordered the Caribbean Combo (coconut-macadamia shrimp, crab cake, sweet potato mash, drunken vegetables) but she was informed that they don't make the drunken vegetables anymore (So why is it on the menu). The shrimp IOHO should have some dipping sauce and the crab cake had more breading than we like and was over cooked (outside was too crunchy). We do prefer the crab cakes at a place up on the hill.
I had the Oven Roasted Lobster (with coconut ginger rice and asparagus). I also ordered the Oscar Topping to have some crab and sauce to put on the lobster. The lobster was good but there was one spear of asparagus on the rice (I guess I expected more). The Oscar topping did come with a couple asparagus spears but only about a teaspoon of crab meat.
Although we weren't all that impressed with this visit, we have been to the Grand Concourse many times over the years and have taken business associates there also so we are still willing to recommend it. The atmosphere in the old train station is enjoyable although it seemed to us that they were trying to squeeze too many tables in. I expect we will return at some point to see if the Grand Concourse can impress us again as it has in the past.
Great food! Great ambiance! Simply use the word great for anything and everything!
Food was good. Sitting out looking at river & Pittsburgh skyline is impressive.
I have been eating @ the "Grand Concourse" for ~12 years now, always an enjoyable experience, excellent cuisine and service, keep-up the good work!!!
The food is always delicious and the service is excellent.
Easter Sunday Buffet. We were seated 20 minutes after our reservation time. We were able to go to the buffet come back and start eating before our water glasses were filled 👎🏻
For the price I felt the buffet was a bit short for the main course, the desserts however were in abundance! And delicious 🤤 the Easter Bunny that traveled the dinning area and lobby (where at least 50 people waited) passing out chocolate eggs was fabulous and made the wait time and dinning time with our 4 year old a memorable experience
Went for the Easter Brunch and really expected something outside of the ordinary for the extreme price. Very overpriced for a meal that was not remarkable. The sticky bun was a highlight and was honestly the best sticky bun I’ve ever had. But that should not be the highlight of an expensive brunch.
Was over priced for a limited Easter Brunch menu, would have preferred to order from a menu.
We went here for Easter Brunch and we had an amazing time! We were afraid at first based on how many people were waiting in the lobby to be seated and the Host explaining to some tables that they were running behind. We were sat within about ten minutes of our reservation and had a wonderful experience. For the price, and my sanity, it was well worth it. No cooking and no clean up! Our servers were amazing and went above and beyond. My mother ordered a cocktail but was disappointed with her selection once she tried my sisters, our waiter overheard and brought her out one "on him". We will be back next year for sure!
Excellent dining experience for Easter brunch. Everything was perfect; our server was exceptional. Food area was clean and trays of food were replenished often. The Grand Concourse was prepared for the crowds.
