We ordered the filet in medium rare and it came medium and was hard to chew....also the meatball pasta was delicious. This has always been a favorite restaurant and I would like to support them.

The server never checked on our table at all to see if everything was good and to see if we needed anything else. The server stopped at the table next to us three times while we were there. I finished a beer 20 minutes before I was done with my meal and she never came back to ask if I wanted a refill until right before the check. We've had this issue four times in a row while eating there. The food is great, but the service is average at best. The first three times it was very slow. This most recent was non-existent. I’m starting to think that we should just do take out only

This was my first time dining at Walnut Grill in Fox Chapel. The food was great. Especially the Crab Cakes, Stuffed Banana Peppers (appetizer) and Spinach Artichike Dip appetizer. The Ambiance was great and we were seated a good distance away from other diners, which was perfect for COVID social distancing. Our server was also very friendly and attentive to our needs. I will definitely eat there again. The only negatives from my visit were - they were out of the Pretzel Bites appetizer (which was one of the items we were most wanting to try) and my daughter ordered a Caesar Salad with her meal and it was pretty bad. The lettuce was all very soft/wilted - and had a dirty/gritty taste to it. Also - there was hardly any dressing on the salad at all and the croutons were all burnt. Surprised they even served it. It was not eaten. - We did not send it back because everything else was so good and my daughter had plenty of food to eat. Overall a great experience - except for the salad.

Poor menu selection. Caesar salad was old and lacked dressing. California turkey wrap was dry and needed more dressing. Service was okay.

We were just glad to be able to go out for our Thanksgiving meal, so weren't too picky about the venue! The service was fine and there were only a few tables with patrons. Most of the activity we saw was for take-out... that was very busy. The meal was just "okay." We had the lobster bisque which was pretty good but very salty. The rest was the usual Thanksgiving fare of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and green beans. The stuffing was a heavy lump. I asked for a little extra gravy because there wasn't much on the potatoes and turkey but was told it would cost us $2 extra which I thought was pretty high for what ended up to be two little condiment sized cups of it. What the dinner lacked in taste, however, it made up for in quantity. We took about half of it home as well as the included desserts and had it again the next night. Overall, a good value but not quite the quality we had hoped for in a special holiday meal. I've been to Walnut Grill when we ordered from the regular menu several times and thought it was good, so I'd try going there again.

The food was good and I am very appreciative that you were open on Thanksgiving day. My only issue was that the desserts were freezing cold. No one wants to eat brownies or apple pie that is freezing cold.

Thank you again for being open!

As usual the Walnut Grill didn't disappoint. the food and service were wonderful the Social Distancing tents were warm and well lit but damper on the ambience not a big deal in these times. I watched the staff doing their cleaning protocol between patrons and they have the system down. All in all we felt very safe.
