Food was just ok.....and they were out of two things on the menu.
Ordered the wings off the happy hr menu just like the frozen ones in the grocery store. Idk would save the money so may other places to go for better happy hour.

We met a friend for Sunday brunch and had not been to the Walnut Grill before.
I felt the offerings for the brunch were rather meager for the cost. My husband thought the thick bacon was the best thing. It’s not that the food was terrible, it wasn’t....it was just OK. I was expecting a much better offering for the price.
I would not recommend Sunday brunch.

The only real complaint I have is about our service. Restaurant wasn’t very busy, but it still took a very long time to get our food and check.

We were very disappointed in the filet and strip steak this time. Usually we are very satisfied but this was below par. Our server was not up to par either. Overall it wasn’t the best trip we have made to WG but I don’t think it will stop us from coming back

My friend and I ate outside so the experience was very nice. However, walking into the restaurant, there is a strong "frat house" basement/old smelly bar odor that really detracts from the ambiance of the restaurant. Also, the decor didn't seem to be updated and it was very dark inside with little natural light. If we weren't eating outside, I'd probably have suggested that we leave. Dining outside was great. Our food was good and our server was very friendly & attentive. Before leaving, I used the ladies room, which was not a good experience. I thought I was walking into the bathroom at a dive bar. If Walnut Grille wants to be the moderately upscale restaurant it advertises itself to be, I would suggest a thorough scrubbing down of the bar area to address the odor. And, the bathrooms should be gutted and remodeled. If the old adage is true that you can judge the cleanliness of a restaurant based upon the condition of the bathrooms, - Walnut Grille is in trouble. They have a great menu and a good staff, so these updates are worth the time and effort.

I really can't say enough about the Walnut Grill, we love going there for the food and the service which is excellent! I was really surprised to get a reservation at the last minute on Saturday on line. I would have thought it would have been crowded but it wasn't. I particularly love the grilled chicken dinner...it's great!!!

I was celebrating my birthday with family. The reservation was super easy to make. Our waiter was great and the food was so good. I ordered the Ceasar Parm' salad and the Parm' Chicken & Gnocchi. Everyone in our party of 6 loved their food as well. It was my first time there and I'll definitely go back. $5 mules on Tuesdays, btw. We sat in the back of the restaurant and the noise level was perfect.

Very strange, we've been to walnut grill lots of times over the years. Brunch wasn't how I remember. The fruit and the salad both looked old. This is our favorite restaurant. I hope things go back to normal.

We asked to sit outside as it was a nice evening. The first table the took us to was under an awning against the building with a heating unit directly overhead. The heat felt like sitting under a blast furnace, so we asked to move. They moved us to a table out on the patio that was much better. The food was delicious and the service was great!

We had reservations and arrived on time for 5:30pm seating on a Saturday. We notified the waitress that we had a show to go to in Fox Chapel and needed to leave by 7pm. We waited almost 45 minutes for our food which made it very tight to get to the show and eat without hurrying. It did not get busy in the restaurant till after we ordered.

Mediocre at best. Who doesn’t serve their breakfast menu on Sunday? Especially with no notice on the menu. All they had was a crappy looking breakfast buffet that was beyond over priced. Nothing even looked made within the hour on the buffet. And it was a crappy selection. The hostess rudely told us we could either have the lunch menu or the buffet. They don’t serve breakfast Sundays. What?! Lunch was edible. That’s about all I can say for it.

We go to this restaurant quite a bit for lunch as they have good salads and salmon and other sandwiches
They have a good bar tender for drinks.
The problem with the dinner this night was the waitress. I don't know if she was new or what. We took our daughter in law and her 4 children. The waitress messed up the order several times. It also took an very long time to get the main course after our appetizers and than when she messed up an irish coffee when asked not to put the cream do mint on it she brought it back with just the coffee and than brought a big can of wiped cream to the table and sprayed in on as she did for my grandsons dessert when the wiped cream was not put on. That was just so uncouth and not what you would do at a table.
When the dessert came our finished plates were still on the table and we had to ask to have them removed.
This is not the service we usually get her for lunch so I will think long and hard before I go back there for dinner.

We got the Sunday brunch buffet. It was $17.95. The food was mediocre at best. We are interested in trying again sometime and ordering off the menu, but the buffet was not worth the price.

Waitress was wonderful - just the right amount of attentiveness and authentically friendly. Manager asked about our experience at the end and offered a complimentary dessert to thank us for coming in. Their rewards app works great and is easy to use. Food was outstanding and the menu has just the right amount of variety. Going to make this one of our regular hangouts!
