Don't know how they stay in business. Our waitress just wasn't around. Couldn't get our water glasses refilled. Food very average to below average. The decor is beautiful but you go to a restaurant to eat - not sightsee. The menu and staff needs a reboot. Go and look at the stain glass but eat somewhere else.

I was able to make my reservation at 6am when it was convenient for me. We walked in and it is always breathtaking to see the beauty of the building. Our waitress was perfect and as always so professional and my one year old granddaughter enjoyed all the attention from her. The food was great , everyone was stuffed and fully enjoyed.

Arrived with only about an hour before close. There were very few tables in use, which I thought would be a bonus, but they were pushing everyone into one scenic corner. The only issue I had was that we were kind of crammed in when we didn't need to be, the the two couples behind us were talking at 85 dB, it was like I was a part of the conversation, unwillingly. If it had gone on any longer I would have asked to move. It may not have been an issue if there was any additional background noise, but it was quiet for that part of the night.
Food was great, as were the cocktails. Ate off of both their specialty and main menu.

We had a great meal at the Grand Concourse. The food was amazing, the service was tremendous, the restaurant is a great way to remember what being an adult is all about! That said, having kids running around while their Dad's chase them in gym shorts was not what i expected at all!!! I'm not sure why certain restaurants are afraid to enforce a dress code, especially one with the caliber of the Grand Concourse. I was highly disappointed with the behavior and the attire of the guests, and with the restaurant's inability to gain control!

The Grand Concourse is a sight to see! The interior of the building has much of the original seating and fixtures of the old rail station. Redone, it is beautiful and the stained glass windows and ceiling were amazing. It had a nice menu and the food was delicious.

We decided to try the Grand Concourse brunch as it was recently advertized as one of the 100 best brunch locations in the US. It was worthy of the accolades as it was exceptional in every category, food quality, quantity, selection, service and a terrific view of the city.

The first half of our dining experience we were not impressed with the service. We had to track waiters down and it was difficult to just get our water refilled. The food was fantastic though and since brunch is such a self serve thing anyways we weren't too upset. By the end of the meal though we couldn't find anyone to get us a bill. Eventually a manager came over and comped our entire bill. It was a wonderful surprise and such a generous way to handle the situation. We were extremely impressed and will definitely return.

Am a frequent partaker of the Sunday Brunch. This time I noted some changes in the food arrangement - all definitely for the better. Also had much better service than I have had in the past. I love the ambiance and take friends and family there quite often.

Coming from out-of-town, planning our weekend visit to Pittsburgh. We were lured in by the fantastic photos of the Grand Concourse Dining Room, However, when we arrived we were ushered in to a side dining room with little to no character or other visual interest at all. As it happened, the main dining room was not open to any patrons as it was booked for a wedding. That was not indicated or advised when we made our reservation only days before...why not?!? Had we known we probably would have opted for another dining venue. The food was good, service was fast and good, but we were in from Cleveland and wanted to experience a bit more...afterall Pittsburgh, we can get fantastic food in Cleveland, we have an Iron Chef!

The food was wonderful and flavorful. The service was great although, the waiter talked a little on the quiet side. The atmosphere is one of the best I've been to. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to somebody. I love that the main part of the restaurant used to be a train depot. The stained glass windows and decor is original.

Once again I will be back with friends and family, a great place to dine in Pittsburgh! Top Notch as always!

So this was our second time around for a sunday brunch. It very difficult to find something negative to say about this place. I enjoy everything about it from decor to live pianist. If there is one thing that I could change I would bring more variety to the menu as it was almost the same items 2 sundays later.

Extremely disappointed with our dining experience
Made a reservation for 4. Bill was just under 300$ however only 2 people are the food
Both chicken dishes were undercooked which is a disgrace in today's society with the knowledge of the dangers around undercooked chicken
Will never be back

After making a reservation we arrived, were seated and flat out ignored for almost twenty minutes (the restaurant wasn't busy, we made reservations at the last minute). I had to go find the manager to get some attention and along with profuse apologies, our food began to appear, but we clearly remained an afterthought. The food left so much to be desired I am not sure where to start - even my steamed cauliflower had so much salt on it, it burned. I mistakenly ordered coconut shrimp which was so salty and spicy, I couldn't taste coconut at all, not to mention the shrimp weren't fresh. While we appreciated the attempted save from the management team, I wouldn't go back for all the reasons mentioned above. Loved the views!!

I have moved out of Pittsburgh, but returned for a few days and brought committee members to Grand Concourse. Many had very specific dietary needs, and sometimes have difficulty finding what they need in a menu. They loved this place.. great food, wonderful choices, lovely setting etc.

We went to the Grand Concourse for our wedding anniversary. I made the reservations online which was very simple, it was my first time dining there. When you walk in it's such a beautiful place, so well kept and clean, makes you feel like you stepped back into the 30's, just breathtaking. We were seated out by the big open windows with the river view and we had a little two person private table that was "reserved" since it was our anniversary! The waiter was awesome, very attentive always filling our drinks even before they were empty, making sure we had everything we needed. The food was mouthwatering, from the bread and salmon spread w/crackers, to the main dishes, everything was wonderful! I would highly recommend the Grand Concourse!

The food was really good. It was not too crowded on a Thursday. We asked to sit in the "grand dinning room", but even on a Thursday it was closed for a private party. We were given a table with a view of the river. It was very nice. We checked out the grand dinning room when we left.

When making my reservation, I stated it was my granddaughter's sixteenth birthday, and would appreciate a good table. When I arrived, the main dining room was booked for a party, and we were seated in another room by the river. I was very disappointed with the seating, and would not have booked a reservation with Grand Concourse had I known we would not be seated in the main dining area.

We have enjoyed the Sunday Brunch for 30+ years, visiting at least twice yearly. This year, however, it seems the quality of food is lacking. The apple dumplings used to be made with whole apples, now it appears to be apple pie filling. The made-to-order egg station was manned by a chef who, when asked to make "fried eggs" stated he did not know how. I constantly had to flag the waiter down for coffee refills. At the very least, coffee should be replenished without asking. When the waiter was asked the price of the brunch, he stated "not sure--it will be on the bill."

Was traveling to Pittsburgh with a friend and we made reservations here for Sunday Brunch. Food was above average for a brunch buffet with tons of variety. It was very crowded and thus some lines or bumping into others at the food stations. Obviously this is the place where people go for Sunday brunch! The setting is cool as it is in an old train depot. Very pretty stained glass. Allow yourself some extra time to look around.
