Walnut Grill's menu offers many great choices. I particularly love the fried brussel sprouts and several of the salad offerings. The food is terrific.

Our service; however, was not great. The waitress was friendly but very inattentive. I waited a ridiculously long time for a glass of ice! And our food took an unreasonably long time.

Despite the less than good service, I would go back again, hoping it was an isolated incident.

I would recommend the restaurant, but not the buffet. We arrived around 1:30 and it looked like it was ending. Food was not refilled, salad looked like it had been sitting out too long, the meet was cold, the pastries were limited. Overall I love the regular menu, however I would not go to the holiday buffet again.

We visited for Mother’s Day brunch as we have in prior years. for the cost of the brunch the quality of the food was subpar. When we first approached the buffet many of the food stations were empty and it was not very busy after 10 am. Food was refilled but much was cold or in the case of eggs Benedict tasted like vinegar. The selection of offerings was downgraded from previous years and for $80+ for three adults I would expect better quality and offerings. For the cost I would recommend the Gran Concourse as an alternative.

Sat on patio for lunch. Embarrassed for manager to welcome guests to a patio with busted chairs, wobbly tables, and a floor that looked like it hadn’t been swept or cleaned in days. I get that the wind can be a problem with outside seating, but it was not currently a windy day and there had to be 50 straw wrappers on the ground among other debris. One other pet peeve when serving a dish that has shrimp with tails (especially a salad) please provide a side plate to put the tails on.

Watered down cocktail had whisky flavor. Wait person apologized for long time bringing (really awful) bread, because "it just came out of the freezer and had to defrost". "Pan seared" asparagus was steamed mush. Overall, it was underwhelming, bland American chain restaurant fare.

I visit this establishment often. On this particular occasion our waitress was awful. NEVER came by to check on us, see if we needed anything. I finally went and asked for a manager. The manager NEVER came to see what I wanted.

On my first visit I found the decor pleasant, but a little loud for my taste. The wait-staff was attentive and friendly. The food was good, the prices very reasonable. I'm pretty sure I'll be back there again when I'm in the Fox Chapel area.

PS I don't understand how you want your first question answered. It seems to require a simple yes/no, but you provide a sliding scale question above the box for the review. This is unclear to me.

We asked for a booth and we got a very small booth with little to no room on the table and it was next to extremely noisy bar area. So, lesson learned to ask for a normal size booth and have it away from the bar moving forward.

We eat at walnut grill at least twice a month and most of the time it’s very good, but tonight was a disaster.
My dinner, chicken dish was burned, left in the pan until it was black on one side. Dana our waitress was to say the least not there and when she was it was with a poor attitude. My chicken was replaced and was perfect the second time, but this took another half an hour to arrive. Our party was four people, three of which had finished their dinners and had to wait for mine to appear.
Getting a check and then waiting for the credit cards to come back was another 15 minutes.
I think 2 hours in a fast casual restaurant is a bit too long.
As I said we eat their often and will return.

We love the service and the food, but it was difficult having conversation due to the noise level and the high energy music. However, the reason could be that we were there during happy hour. The pricing was very reasonable, and the server was very friendly. We'll go back for sure.

We had a group of 9, everyone was very pleased with the food. The orange roughy was wonderful (a lenten special) and my husband said the New York strip was excellent. Apps were also very good! Stuffed banana peppers were huge, pretzel bites, zucchini all very good! We will definitely go back, as the service, atmosphere and food were excellent! Drink specials on the weekend were a bonus.

Most of the meal was good but the kiddie filet was rare when we ordered medium. Sent it back - it came out like shoe leather. The chef was clearly sending a message but come on, why do you do that to a child's order? Waiter was gracious and took it off the bill but my daughter was sad she had a terrible dinner. We won't go back.
