Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews
Love the Martha Vineyard salad. The Med. Chowder was good but could have been hotter . Gluten free menu and more options that should have been included on the regular menu. Had to ask for the Gluten free menu after seeing that it was available when I was online the night before. The Gluten free menu also offered dessert options not included on the regular menu - healthier options too.
Mango Sorbet was excellent.
We sat in the River Room and had a nice view of the city. it was quiet and cozy even with it being very cold outside.
The restrauant was extremely cold...I had to ask the waiter if he could turn up the heat...the food was cold before returning back to the table...we were literally shivering...could not enjoy the brunch at all...the salad section of the brunch area was so dark you couldn't even see what was there....coffee was cold....hot water for tea was cold...not worth a bill of $155.00 for table of 5.....the waiter was very good and the matters above not his fault at all.
The brunch food was tasty but it was freezing cold in the restaurant that day (single digits outside) and everything was cold by the time I sat back down from the buffet. It is definitely a steep price for brunch but the place has a nice ambiance and views from the dining room are great. I appreciated the kid's table. It would be helpful to put up some signage about where different types of food are, we completely missed one room of food and only saw it on the way out.
Our waiter, Herby, couldn't have been better. Very knowledgeable about the menu and kept us informed about why our meal was taking so long (pork chops). The food was delicious and portions were generous. The only disappointment for the meal was how cold it was at our table. Some maintenance needs to be done to put some calking on the edges of the walls below the windows for the seats closest to the water. My feet were almost numb by the end of the meal.
We took my parents here for a simple, but wonderful, 50th Anniversary dinner. None of us had ever been, but everyone in Pittsburgh is familiar with this grand old place in Pittsburgh. To be honest, I expected that I would be paying for the history and not the food. But, to my delight, the food was EXCEPTIONAL. The bone-in ribeye was one of the best steaks that I have had, and I go to many great steak places. Perhaps now being owned by the same company as Morton's provides better supply. Either way, WONDERFUL meal.
Our server was dedicated, but clearly trying to upscale her skills at a higher-end place. We loved her, but it isn't "white glove" level service. Just a solid server.
For the record, the place clearly gets overwhelmed on holidays with very demanding, and somewhat amateur, diners. Don't let that dissuade you from coming on a non-holiday.
Call me disappointed with our 10:30pm reservation at Grand Concourse on New Year's Eve.
The staff seemed overworked and depressed. Soups had to be returned to be reheated, waiters complained of long, understaffed hours.
The food and ambiance have the potential to be outstanding, but on this night, were lacking.
We enjoyed the restaurant as the scenery was gorgeous, but the service was not the best. We had a reservation for 10PM, and we didn't get seated until 10:45PM. It made no sense as the restaurant was empty. Our whole group ordered the filet mignon, which came with asparagus and mashed potatoes. We literally could not stop laughing because the meal came with two asparagus spears. TWO. We thought it was the funniest thing ever, joking about the apparent asparagus shortage and referring to it as "asparagate." Overall, a lovely venue! Would try again on a night that wasn't a holiday.
If you're going out for New Year's, just skip Grand Concourse. The entire staff seemed to just have a free pass to give subpar service because it was a holiday... like folks should just expect to be ignored and wait forever for really mediocre food.
The restaurant was at about 65% capacity, but we waited 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Another 20 minutes until we stopped a waiter passing by to ask if anyone had our table. Another 1/2 hour to get a drink and a full hour after that for our food. We all had filet mignon and mashed red potatoes...nice and cold by the time we got them. So at $128 per couple before tip, we just didn't think it was worth it!
On the plus side, the view was amazing and the waitress....who I don't think was even supposed to be taking care of our table was very nice and apologetic.
We went to grand concourse for new year celebration. We were greeted by wonderful valet service even though the temperature was 5, the gentlemen were kind and accommodating. We arrived early spoke to the hostess who was polite and told us she could us a table sooner than our reservation. We went to Ganda salon and enjoyed wonderful Long Islands made by a very fun gentleman,unfortunately I cannot recall his name. Our waitress Jessica was helpful because of our food allergies and brought chef heather out to go over our options. The food was wonderful the whole evening wonderful thank you .
The food did not reach expectations. Examples - oysters were shucked with no brine left, Salmon/crab special looked like they were bought from a food service, lobster was overcooked (waitress was great and took it off the bill)......It was really disappointing knowing the potential of this restaurant.
The food was good but service was really really slow. Sat down at 7:10 left at 10:30. You get introduced to 2 servers but only one serves you, I think the other should assist to move things along. Waitress insisted on ringing on thing in at a time, which is fine, but between putting the order in was probably 20 minutes.
New Year’s Eve brunch included shrimp, mussels, lobster mac and cheese, bread, chicken, ham, prime rib, turkey, salmon (3 ways), white fish, potatoes, omlets, dessert, fresh donuts, waffles, salads of all sorts.... and more. Beautiful room, great service. Perfect for a special occasion. Full menu other days and times. Bar also serves food.
The waitress was not aware of the menu resulting in going to the back multiple times to confirm the menu. Lobster was dry and rubbery and steak was overcooked. The quality of the food and service underperformed compared to the price of the meal. Overall not happy with the experience for our first time to the restaurant.
Everything was good but, they should serve Pepsi Products instead of Coke as well as list how much all drinks cost, they should have a larger variety of options on both the main and dessert menus including alternative ways of preparing the foods and have specials listed on a seperate menu so that people can try something unique.
It's a grand edifice IF or WHEN you are allowed to sit in the main dining room.
Sitting in the riverview room is not a reason to go here.
If you want "the" go to a restaurant on top of Mt Washington.
Our servers were cheerful but unskilled. We wanted a leisurely dinner with conversation with old friends. The service was rushed, our dining was rushed, and our conversation was disrupted.
My wife and I have eaten at the Grand Concourse numerous times over a 40 year period. We ate dinner there on Christmas afternoon (2017). My wife ordered the roasted lobster tail and it was a bit “rubbery”. I ordered the salmon and it was fine except that it came to the table only luke warm. We were a little disappointed in the overall quality of the meal and service. I would not say that we would never dine at the Grand Concourse again but it would not be particularly high on our list. To the best of our recollection, it just didn’t seem as good as in the past (yes, I know there are different owners now and that may be part of our problem).
We had high hopes. We decided to come here this year for Christmas dinner since we would not be with family. We had high hopes that were definitely crushed.
We both ordered from prix fixe menu. I got the surf and turf and my husband got the prime rib and crab cake. My lobster tail had been broiled to death and had a brown clump of crab stuffing on top along with a very small fliet two asparagus and red mashed potatoes....a disappointment to say the least and at $59!
The dessert was a bananas foster creme brulee. One would think that bananas would show up somewhere but they were not to be found. My husband ate only part of his. We both agree it had a chemical aftertaste.
So we visited this Pittsburgh iconic restaurant once and will not return again.
I was very disappointed with both the food and the service. I had recently been there for Sunday brunch and found it to be overall good although a little dark making it difficult to see the various entrees. Dinner on Christmas Eve was another story. Perhaps the main service and cook staff had the evening off or perhaps it was just a bad night. Either way it was a most unsatisfactory experience. My salmon with crab was overdone and exceptionally dry. The pre service was slow and the bananas foster creme brûlée was tasteless. Needless to say I probably won’t ever go back for dinner. The best point was the beautiful decor and ambiance.
Christmas Eve. Great ambiance but the food this year was not as good. Calamari had 4 pieces, mixed in with other deep fried foods like peppers. That was disappointing. Filet ordered medium rare was close to well done. Never had issues with the food before this
We went to the Grand Concourse for Christmas Eve. The food was very nice, but not exceptional. The service was poor. The waitperson may have been tired or overworked, but she was unable to explain the menu (indeed, looked surprized when we asked,) brought us our check before we had even been asked if we wanted dessert, spilled the coffee and didn't do anything about it and we generally felt we were a burden. My husband says it is just Pittsburgh.
Great food, service as always. Christmas Eve service was great in the River Room. I had shrimp scampi and their angel hair pasta. Another friend ate grilled lobster. The Martha's Vineyard said was outstanding and fresh. Love the salmon pate with the crackers, too. All entrees were paired with white wine.
Really beautiful space, buffet was lovely and much better than I expected. Better than the average hotel brunch. Would def recommend as a great place to go w/th family from out of town. Not somewhere I would go just for the food, though the decadent brunch sweets were very good.
