The produce for the chicken wraps was SO bad I just ate the chicken which was unfortunately served cold. The quality of the food here has vastly deteriorated. Never again.

The atmosphere is nice. We could easily talk to each other at our table. Our waiter, Steve, was great; friendly, efficient and attentive, but not intrusive.
Meals were very good. I really like the additional menu that offers smaller portions.

I feel like they need more vegan options. They have so many healthy dishes, but its difficult to find something truly vegan. My family members felt bad about asking them to change things so they could eat.

I made the reservation on open table. Wish I would have been informed that they were serving buffet for Father’s Day. We’ve gone for brunch before and truly enjoyed ourselves with the regular menu. Buffet food was cold and they were charging $40 a head. There was lots of variety but the quality they normally have did not translate to the buffet. I would not have taken my father there had I known. Not sure if it’s on the restaurant or open table for not making us aware.

I had the pleasure to entertain friends visiting from Philadelphia. I selected WG since the menu is diverse with options to satisfy all appetites. Everyone of my 5 guests were happy with the food and drink selections. Our server Terri was most amazing. Even though it was a busy Saturday night, Terri tended to each one of us as though we were her only guests. She was efficient, friendly and answered all our questions. I selected the Walnut Grill because of their consistency with great food, drinks and service. Once again, our dining experience was wonderful.

The food and services were both good, but because the door was opened there were quite a few bugs flying inside the restaurant. We chose to dine inside to avoid bugs. Might need to invest in something to help minimize this.

It was rated a 3 and I should have believed it. Way to expensive for the quality of food. Also not many choices for people that don’t want past or meat. It was just so blah. We had a bottle of wine which probably helped the food taste better. When you see a place that gets 3 stars, believe it and don’t go! Disappointed!

I went specifically for the french onion soup. Yelp reviewers for Pittsburgh said it was the best in the area at a moderately priced restaurant. It was not bad by any means but it wasn't the best I've ever had. It was hot, the crouton was sufficiently crisp but the soup was not flavorful enough and it didn't have enough onions. The soup should be filled with onions and the broth should be hearty and full of flavor. It wasn't. My turkey club on challah bread was ehh too. The bread was toasted too much and it broke apart while eating which caused the turkey and condiments to fall out making eating a fork situation not a sandwich one. Pricing was reasonable and the food wasn't bad by any means but not the experience I was expecting.

Don’t waste your time!! We waited so long for our food after ordering (45+ min) in the less than half full restaurant, we actually got up and left. Multiple parties that were seated after us got their food before us -we were a party of 2 with straight menu orders (nothing special). Even when leaving the hostess was shocked we hadn’t been served yet! Bartender/waiter kept telling us it would be out soon. I finally asked what the deal was and he said our ticket was next. What a joke. I give this place less than 1 year.

Our reservation wasn’t taken until 25 minutes after the scheduled time because they were “running behind” despite numerous open tables not being seated, and staff acknowledging that fact. Two drinks served and higher prices charged than what was published on menu and had to be corrected. Long wait times until waiter visited table. Kitchen out of a couple items but took a long period for waiter to inform us after ordering on 2 separate occasions. One order came out with incorrect side and missing a soup. Overall wait staff was very friendly and did his best. Made some adjustments to be helpful. Food was hot and fresh even though it took a long time and we did enjoy the meals. But things were a bit disorganized and staff was overwhelmed

Host staff could not help me by providing a location nor directions to restaurant. I was seated in a bar high top even though I was wearing a full leg brace. I had to rest my leg on a broken chair on the floor for the entire evening. Food was average. Service was slow to to computer system crash. Our waitress was the only nice person in the restaurant. Thank goodness they have her. Not a great first impression.

We were being served by one of the bartenders, which is fine, but our meals were served 20 minutes apart. I don’t know if it was due to it being Mother’s Day, although when we we there it was in between brunch and dinner, or if it was the distraction of making drinks and serving. Other than that the food was the same quality as usual, and the overall experience was solid.

They served a buffet for Mother’s Day. We made reservations and walked right in, no waiting, but even people who were waiting only had to wait 20-25 minutes. There were so many choices - breakfast foods, lunch / dinner foods, and several options for dessert. And they would make an omelette for no additional cost. Good value, good deal. Definitely recommend!

Went for Mother's Day brunch - Many of buffet dishes were empty & we kept having to wait for refills, including shrimp. Our waiter was not remotely attentive. We had to ask multiple times for drinks & to have dishes cleared. It was hard to say how it would be on a regular day but they were clearly understaffed on Sunday. We probably wont go back.

I had a reservation for 1215 but didn’t get seated for lunch until 1:00. What’s the point of a timed reservation if the restaurant is overbooked and you have to wait 45 minutes. I’ve heard Walnut Grille overbooks and now that I’ve experienced it myself, I will not go there again.

I love Walnut Grill. It is one of my favorite places to go with my friends. My husband has been taking to Mother's Day brunch there for the 3 years. I look forward to the food and the time spent with my kids. This year was busier than normal but I know it was in the day. The staff was stressed. Even though we had to wait longer for our table I still enjoyed my meal.

We have tried SO many times to give Walnut Grill the benefit of the doubt, that maybe we just caught them on an off night, or maybe they were short staffed. We’ve tried. But every time is the same. Service is painfully slow. We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time even though there were only 3 other tables occupied at the time. The food was not right, & not surprisingly, it took forever to fix it. The whole staff just seems blissfully unaware that a sense of urgency is a job requirement at a restaurant. Even at the end of the meal, we all had to scramble to find smaller bills so that we could just leave the money & not have to wait for change. Who knows how long that would’ve taken. With so many restaurant choices in Robinson, I just can’t justify giving Walnut Grill any more chances.

Met friends for dinner. My order was messed up not once, but twice. By the time they got it right everyone else at the table was done eating!
A woman, that did not identify herself, brought out the final, correctly prepared food & laughed about “ having it right”
My server did apologize for the mistakes. (Very slow service.)
No offer of a discount on my bill was given.

My wife and I, along with two friends had a pleasant dining experience at this Walnut Grill. All four of us frequent this restaurant, so we are familiar with the cuisine. Three of us had salads topped with salmon. They were all tasty and the salmon was prepared as specified when ordering. I had the turkey club and thought it was tasty and plenty big (and I am a big eater). Our waiter, Mark, was attentive and very prompt with our needs. As usual, one of the best items on the menu are their sweet potato fries. Three of us ordered these fries and found them to be delicious, large cut, and plenty of fries to satisfy.
