Grand Concourse Ratings and Reviews
Good food and good service. We came in between Sunday Brunch clean up and the beginning of the dinner hour. Understandably, we had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Once seated, the food was great. The crab cake entree was good...but, the "sauce portions" were extremely stingy....I was surprised. I would love to return for the Sunday Brunch sometime-I bet it's spectacular.
I have not given many poor ratings on review sites but based on our experience, the Grand Concourse definitely earned it. The service was very slow during our visit. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and were seated on time. However, it took 15 minutes for our waiter to arrive and another 15 minutes to receive our drinks. Our dinners arrived about 30 minutes after our drinks. That's 1 hour total from our arrival time which is unacceptable for a highly rated & expensive restaurant. Our waiter did not check on us very often so our drinks remained empty for a decent amount of time. Lastly, the Fillet Mignon was not very high quality because it contained muscle fibers which made it both more chewy & more difficult to cut.
My husband and I came here for Valentine's Day dinner. Initially, there was some confusion as to which server was assigned our table. We were first greeted by a server who took our drink and appetizer order and who also brought us bread. 10 minutes later, another server greeted us, and eventually took over our table. She was confused as to why we had already been greeted, and told us the first server was a trainee. We chalked it up to being a busy night. As for the food, we were underwhelmed by the quality for the price we paid. The firecracker shrimp had a bit too much batter for our taste. I had the pepper crusted tenderloin medallions, which was just ok. My husband had the salmon with crab stuffing from the Valentine's menu. He found the mashed potatoes to be dry and the stuffing to be a little overpowering with the salmon. It was a very crowded Saturday night, and we had difficulty carrying on a conversation with the noise level. I did, however, enjoy sitting near the windows and looking out over the river. I should also add I've been here for Sunday brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Stunning view. Interior is also gorgeous.
Food was ok. I think they might cater to an older crowd. My husband was coached by the waiter to get rare tuna. There wasn’t a spec of pink on it — meaning it was cooked to death (and beyond). My scallops were also over cooked. They weren’t shy with the salt either.
Overall I’m glad I experienced it once for the view but I probably won’t go back.
Excellent food and service. We would have preferred a table closer to a window on the waterfront but were given a smaller table when there were available tables closer to the window. The restaurant was not that busy that night. However, the food and service was exceptional. They may have been holding tables for larger parties.
This was a birthday celebration and it couldn't have been more perfect. Our waitress was attentive and efficient. She made some great recommendations and the food was excellent. We had a nice table in the River Room with a lovely view of the south-facing side of the Golden Triangle.
We had a 12:30pm reservation and checked in at 12:15pm. At 1pm we were still not seated. I went to inquire and was told our reservation was at 1:30pm. I showed them my confirm and was told that it must have gotten switched. Why didn’t they tell notice that when I checked in at 12:15pm. Other then that it was a wonderful brunch!!!
The brunch buffet was amazing, everything we tried was excellent. The only complaint was the service. Our server never filled our water, didn't check in on us, and I had to flag her down to get a second cup of coffee. Thankfully it was self service on the food or we probably would of left.
Went to Grand for out valentines day date. Made a reservation earlier in the week. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and it only took maybe 5 mins to be sat. There was also a coat service. The place is very nice and seems clean. Food came pretty fast for the amount of people that were there. Alittle pricey but if your looking for a special date, its worth it. For a dinner for two your probably gonna pay at least 60 dollars average. So alittle above average dinner price but not bad. Food was great, and service was on point.
The food was excellent. My husband ordered the duck which he said was done perfectly. We were celebrating an anniversary. It was a perfect place for quiet conversation. The atmosphere with the soft music could not have been nicer. The service was exceptional!
We dined on Superbowl Sunday for my birthday, so there were minimal guests no doubt. It took us a moment before we were seated and we were pleasantly surprised to have nearly the entire place to ourselves. I was so ticked pink by the "happy birthday" note on the menu. Lauren was our waitress and she was such a sweetheart! She was attentive and patient and gave us just the right amount of attention even though they were not busy at all. Coming from a fellow fine dining server, I commend her on her service! :) unfortunately they were out of the whole live lobster, but this was a blessing in disguise! I tried the swordfish, grilled to perfection, with a small lobster tail and my boyfriend had a perfectly cooked steak. Incredible first dining experience, and we will definitely return!
We had dinner at the Grand Concourse following a theater show in downtown Pittsburgh, using a gift certificate we'd received at Christmas. We were seated in an outer area, with a lovely view of the river and downtown buildings...especially lovely as darkness fell and the lights came on. There were very few patrons at this early time (about 4:45 PM) and the fact that it was Super Bowl night could have kept folks home.
My husband and I both had the Ultimate Seafood Mixed Trio consisting of grilled salmon, crab cake, coconut shrimp, coconut ginger rice and broccoli, accompanied by a basket of warm poppy seed rolls. We both enjoyed our dinners very much and would highly recommend the seafood trio.
Our server was very attentive, almost too much so, stopping every few minutes to see if we needed anything. That sounds like a silly comment, but when the server seems to be hovering, I sometimes feel like we're being rushed.
All in all, our experience was very positive and we will return to the Grand Concourse.
