The food was average and the service was slow. The music selection was frankly a bit odd (80s dance) and way too loud.

We were placed in a banquet room with a large group who was very noisey. When we were waited on the waitress seemed very frustrated and was not pleasant at all. We ordered our meal and about 10 minutes later the waitress came back to tell me wife they were out of what se ordered.

She ordered a different meal and when the meals finally came mine was cold. The waitress took it back and envtually told me they were goin to make me a new meal. Mine came after my wife and daughter had already finished theirs.

The manager came and apologized and took my meal of the bill and offered us a complimentary dessert. Of course what we ordered they only hade one of so the three or us shared one dessert. We were given a $25 gift card by a different manager.

It was very obvious the the staff was frustrated as they would gather outside the entrance to the room we were in and complain.

I have been to this place a few times before and was satisfied. However, I do not intend to visit this restaurant in the near future if at all.

Mother’s Day. Buffet was not kept up with - eggs were gray. Dessert table looked like a bomb went off on it. Food was sub-par. Chicken was old and rubbery. Very disappointed.

Food was good. Service was lacking. We were seated then not acknowledged by a waiter for 10 minutes. Waiter was not attentive. We were given bread plates at our place setting, but never offered bread (my wife’s meal was a pasta dish which would normally have bread). Waiter did not check on us after someone else delivered our food until after we were done with our meals. I needed a refill of my soda halfway through my meal, but the waiter did not return until we were done eating. Once he asked me if I wanted a refill, he forgot and didn’t return for several minutes.

Service was good. The potstickers were good. would have liked more options for vegetables. Steak could have used a bit more flavor. On the whole not a bad experience.

We went to the Walnut Grill to celebrate our 49 years of marriage. Dinner was delicious, service was good. I noticed one of the waitstaff was setting the battery operated candle lights on the tables. He did not bring one to our table. Would have been a nice addition to the evening.

The service and food were excellent, and the menu provided numerous options. The noise level, however, was so high that the server could not hear our orders without bending over and placing his ear near our mouths, and normal conversation was extremely difficult. I would return, but only in mid-afternoon, between the usual lunch and dinner times.

My favorite breakfast in the North Hills - interesting and tasty choices - and if you are into healthy food they have that. Best oatmeal presentation I have had in the region and the Egg and Spinach Flatbread is sensational. What I cannot get over is how the service and ambiance don't match the food quality in the morning. The last two times there the greeter was not at her station and I had to wait at length for her. I was told this last time kind of brusquely by another staff member that I could seat myself. That was not clear because that is not the case at lunchtime or dinner and there is no sign that indicates you self-seat in morning. I also don't want to hear raucous rock music in the morning. When I hear this kind of music I sense it is the employees who are gleefully choosing the music for themselves, not the patrons.

The restaurant was much busier with UberEats and it took a long time for our order to come to the table-as did our dessert as well which was ice cream and melted upon arrival. We usually frequent for brunch/lunch so we were surprised at the time difference.

I’ve been to this location about 4 or 5 times now and never had a bad experience. Any server we’ve had here is amazing, they’re always so good with my daughter who is about 2 years old. And the food is also amazing! If you go for breakfast get the pancakes, you won’t be disappointed!

We had a wonderful waiter, he knew the menu inside out, made good recommendations and was just a very pleasant human being. The food was really good, it was the best fish sandwich I’ve had in a long time. We took our time ordering and getting out of the booth after our meal was completed and the bill was paid, we never felt pressured to get the order in or to vacate the booth.

We have been to the Walnut Grill in Wexford several times in the last few years. We can usually count on them to provide a good dining experience. I don't recall them having the extensive draught beer list that they now offer. It was a pleasant surprise. It was also $4.00 Long Island Iced Tea night which was a bonus as that is my wife's drink of choice. I had the pork tenderloins and they were excellent. The cream of mushroom soup was also top notch. Overall, the fine dining experience that we have come to expect at this location.

Food fine, overworked server was great. 20 mins after being seated no one had acknowledged our existence and we finally had to plead for someone to take our order. Server did her best and was apologetic. Management never checked in and is most likely the issue here. Won’t bother coming back for awhile.

Food was great, not only choices available, but also taste and portions.
Music was way too loud . Server was a doofus.
Spent a lot of his time staring at his phone and we finally managed to get bartender to go and get him.
He pretty much would keep us from returning to this site.

We were sat at a table right by a doorway and the hostess actually told me not to sit in certain chairs so not to block the doorway. We had to sit next to each other which was ok but awkward. The brussel sprouts were raw and you could not eat them because they were so hard. We had to ask for more drinks instead of being asked. Food was ok but nothing spectacular and we both said we wouldn't be back.
