We decided to do a birthday lunch at the Grand Concourse because the birthday boy is a huge lover of trains and turn of the century architecture. The Grand Concourse Restaurant is absolutely stunning, set an old Beaux arts train station replete with gorgeous stained glass, grand staircase and rich wood and gold fixtures. We were seated in the River View Room, where they enclosed the old train platform in glass, overlooking the river and with great views of the Pittsburgh skyline. The menu is primarily seafood and I ended up ordering their Ocean Cobb salad which was very nice and had lots of seafood (shrimp, lobster) and toppings. My husband had their salmon which he found to be just ok and a little bland. The cocktails were wonderful and very inventive. We both splurged on their “table-side” cocktails (the chamomile cucumber gin old fashioned and the smoked Manhattan) which they prepare at your table and are well worth the $20 per drink fee just for the show. The service was a little lacking and our waiter/s kept changing, we had three different ones over an hour (maybe it was a shift change) and they would disappear for long stretches of time. Thankfully we weren’t in any rush as the kitchen was very slow and the meal took over two and half hours with a very long lag between getting our cocktails, appetizers and then entrees. Overall this was a very nice experience and the Grand Concourse is worth dining at just for the ambiance alone.

The inside is breathtaking and so is the view from the restaurant. The food was good but nothing spectacular. I would have expected more flavor and better presentation for the price but it was a fun night. We started off with the Firecracker Shrimp ($14.50) and the Bread basket. It was good and you can’t go wrong with fresh bread and butter. For dinner my partner had the Steak & Lobster Tail ($48) - a 8oz sliced flat iron, lobster tail, whipped potatoes, house made steak sauce, drawn butter. He said it was good but it sounded better. I had the Dynamite Mahi Mahi ($35) - crab encrusted, herb oil drizzle, coconut ginger rice, asparagus. It was good but wasn’t impressed with the overall flavor, or the rice, for that price. For dessert we had the Artisan Cheesecake with a blueberry compote with fresh whipped cream ($10.50) and the Banana Foster Crème Brûlée with banana and red raspberry ($9). These were so good. A few things bothered me like walk-ins getting seated before us when we had reservations or were even acknowledged. Could improve on reception and pay attention. Also, not clearing of used silverware between courses and not bringing fresh cutlery for the main entrées. For $40 a plate bring me a fresh fork. The waitress was super friendly and nice. I recommend valet for convenience especially if visiting from out of town. This area is crazy busy on a weekend evening. The Ambiance, getting out and dressing up, and the view made the evening. I would recommend the restaurant and checking it out. It’s nice to dine, but I wouldn’t go there just for the food.

Recently hit this place up for an evening meal with colleagues. The one appetizer we enjoyed were the fire shrimp. Excellent. The salad (ceasar) was quite large and if you threw some chicken on it could be a meal in itself. Unfortunately as the main dish was served, it went down hill. Although cooked accurately, the bone in ribeye had no bone. It also was full of fat and thought to cut, chew and eat. The mashed potatoes served with them were very average and not so warm. Quite frankly I have found very few restaurants that can cook a decent steak in this city. I'm sure it's really nice in the summer being on the water. Perhaps I'd go back and try something else, but for $42, I expect a good steak. It was not.

The host set the tone with the attitude we received when requesting a patio table. He said they were all booked but could “squeeze us in”. The entire night 3 of the 10 tables were full, including us. The meal felt rushed like they wanted us out of there as everything came at once. My prime rib was lukewarm at best and not even seasoned. My wife’s salmon was chewy and had some basic butter sauce poured on it (even though the description was different). Server was constantly forgetting things and we had to ask for bread 3 times. It just didn’t feel like the prices were justified for what we received. I am normally a 20%+ tipper but not tonight. We opted out of dessert and went to our hotel where it was wonderful

We were looking forward to this place after reading the menu and seeing the photos online. It really is just a tourist trap. We started out with drinks. The New Old fashion was average. Didn't really taste like something innovative to me. The Crown and Diet Coke had flat Diet Coke and tasted bad. Bread was good but the crackers were blah... For dinner the snapper was very small and lacked any flavor. It was supposed to be In a lemon sauce.. I guess I was supposed to squeeze the lemon on my plate over it to add lemon flavor. The rice was blank and 2 pieces of asparagus was a joke. Blackened salmon was ok. Again dry rice and bland broccoli dumped on the plate. The dessert was the worst part... how is that possible. The Bananas Foster Creme Brûlée was terrible. They just tossed sliced bananas on top of it. The custard under the burnt crust was clumpy and just gross.. The building inside is gorgeous but it takes good food to make people come back. Our server was good...

We intended to make a reservation at the Gandy Dancer instead of Grand Concourse but since it was closed for a private event, we decided to try out the Grand Concourse. We were seated about twenty minutes after our reservation and got a table with an amazing view of the river and the bridge. The ambiance was wonderful and the menu was full of tempting sounding choices. Our appetizer, the almond crusted baked Brie, was good but not great. The bread and crackers were nothing special but a nice offering before the meal. Our waiter was well intended but not very attentive, not refilling our water (empty decanters and empty glasses) until we asked. All of us agreed that our meals were good but not as good as we’d hoped for the prestige and price of the place. My husband had ordered the prix fixe menu which included dessert — the Bananas Foster crème brûlée was the best food of the night, and highly recommended! Overall, we wished the food and service had measured up to the atmosphere and pricing of this gorgeous, historic building. Hopefully they will get back on track because it could be a premier choice for any kind of celebration.

Let me start by saying my husband and I are very picky when it comes to restaurants. We are huge foodies, love to cook at home and really value high quality ingredients. As such, we usually don’t expect toooo much out of the restaurants we visit. We know that we will likely enjoy the food and service, but not very often are we wowed. This place was absolutely phenomenal and we decided it is probably the 2nd best meal we’ve ever had, coming only just behind our honeymoon dinner on a seaside cliff in Italy at a Michelin starred restaurant. From the bread to the calamari starter, everything was noticeably just…different? I don’t even know how to describe it, but we’ve had calamari a million times and none have even come close to the flavor profile we had here. It was so amazingly delicious that we were sitting there excitedly trying to put our finger on it. Was it the sauce? The aioli underneath? The cut of the squid? Who knows! But it was fantastic. Our entrees were also incredible and I appreciated how knowledgeable the server was. I have an aversion to onions and always ask to make sure I’m not inadvertently ordering a dish with them. The server knew the dish I was ordering had shallots in the sauce, that are then strained out. I ended up ordering it anyway and really enjoying it, but just him thinking to tell me that detail showed how intimately the servers know the menu. The ambiance is very nice as well. It’s in a renovated train depot and reminds me of stepping into another era. It wasn’t overly busy or loud, but rather calming even on a Friday night. We cannot wait to make an excuse to come back to Pittsburgh, just to have their food.

The setting cannot be beat. The main room is the epitome of old Pittsburgh glamour. Our server was sweet and attempted to be helpful, but she was undertrained. I think with time she will be a wonderful server. The food had some highlights, like the shrimp cocktail. It was well prepared, but it was served sitting in the same kind of bowl of ice that oysters would be. That’s fine for oysters, but you don’t necessarily want to shake little bits of ice off your shrimp before you eat it. The cinnamon vinaigrette was interesting on the salad. The rest of the food we had was what I would expect at a mediocre wedding banquet hall. The ideas behind the dishes were not bad. They were just executed very averagely. The wine list featured many bottles you could easily find on the discount shelf at your local grocery store. The cocktails were also what I would expect from an average hotel bar. With the glory of the setting and the gorgeous skyline views, the food and service just didn’t live up to the exceptional surroundings. With some tweaks here and there, Grand Concourse could be amazing. They just aren’t there yet. There is nothing wrong with classic. Classics done well can be wonderful, but this missed the mark.

Hard to believe such a beautiful, historic restaurant which is a Landry’s property could turn out to be such a debacle. What went right? Not a lot. The bread and crackers were the best thing I ate. Literally. The online menu was radically different from what I could order from the actual menu in the restaurant. The manager was quite surprised by this revelation. Then when I tried to order prime rib, which was only available on Friday and Saturday, they had sold out by 7:30. Why bother? Orders were botched, my snapper was exceptionally dry. Had to ask for salt and pepper. Most amazing of all was when I was on my way to the restroom and saw another guest had crab legs. I asked my waiter how he got them. He said, “ isn’t that on the menu?” Of course, it wasn’t! Just a terrible experience. Go elsewhere.

Probably could've gotten better food and service from Applebee's for 1/4 of the cost. Service slow, initial drink order took 15 minutes. Took another 15 minutes to order apps. Every drink order took at least 10 minutes. Food was underwhelming to say the least. I had the flat iron steak with JUMBO shrimp scampi. Steak had no flavor the shrimp definitely wasn't jumbo and there was no type of scampi sauce in sight. The mashed potatoes that was with it. Cold! Another person had the scallops, burnt! This is supposed to be an upscale place and there was graffiti on the bathroom wall. I will never be back. Did I tell the manager? Still waiting to see one! Please save your money and go somewhere else.

Friday night and we had not been to grand concourse for over 30yrs. it was quite busy and we were seating in the area overlooking the river which was very nice. our server Cole was excellent and did not seem to be stretched to work his tables. this is a challenge today with the help issues especially in the restaurant industry. he made a couple small mistakes like bringing regular coffee instead of decaf but corrected it right away. also brought an extra glass of wine and instead of trashing it comped it. he was very personable dinner lasted well over 2hrs which was ok as we were not in a hurry. i ordered charlies chowder as i used to have it a lot when i worked at station square. not the same. not even close as well as the bread. not the same, not even close. both were ok though. the butternut bisque was excellent. the entrees is where everything fell apart. i ordered the snapper and shrimp (photo would not upload) about a 5oz portion that was dry and chewy. the shrimp was overcooked and rubbery and the sauce really did not complement the dish well as it was a little bland. wasnt a fan of the rice and also a little bland. the ladies ordered lemon chicken. one half of one breast was plated with a huge mound of mashed. they did say it tasted good but a 4oz portion of chicken is not going to cut it for a dinner portion. the last person ordered the cajun tortellini. again under seasoned but at least a decent portion. dessert was a joke. a tiny piece of NY Cheesecake and i'm talking small was $11.50 they ought to be ashamed to serve that. i will give them the fact that it was tasty and the fact the prices for inventory are through the roof but thats a little steep. overall the ambiance was great, the server Cole was very good and attentive but the food lacked in portion size and seasoning.

My boyfriend and I were in town for the Steelers game and decided to choose this restaurant after reading the reviews on here! The ambience is amazing, you feel as though you are transported in time. For an appetizer we shared the calamari, which was good, but we prefer less breaded calamari. For dinner, I had the salmon which was among the best I have ever had, and my boyfriend had the filet. The waitress asked me to cut into the steak, and it was rare, when he had ordered medium. She immediately apologized, took back the steak and when it came back out, it was cooked perfectly. For dessert, we shared the banana foster creme brulee which was absolutely delicious. The service and drinks were also on par for the price point and overall dining experience. It was pricey, but I would highly recommend for a fancy date night, and ask to sit near the river, as the view of the city added to the overall experience.

Expensive food, poor quality: Crème Brulee was very thick and the "caramelized and crunchy top" was simply burned. What I told our waitress "A" she just said "Aww, sorry!" The scallops were quarter size but I paid a lot for that. To be fair, the carrot cake and Calamari was good. I was with a group of people for lunch and did not want to make a scene, but I could get a better service in a cheaper restaurant. In general, I'm not planning to go back there or take my guests there.

This is a lovely historic location which deserves food at a much better level than we were served tonight. The sirloin steak was tough, the Hemingway snapper overcooked and fishy, the Caesar salad was bland. (Have to admit the bread was good, however.) The service was slow. Had to flag the waitress down to order a second glass of wine. Then about 1 minute later she asked if we wanted to see a desert menu. We had barely started our entrees, which, did I say?, were slow to arrive. To add insult to injury, I asked for pepper, expecting a fresh pepper grinder, and was presented a pepper shaker. For $120 in sort of hallowed surroundings, I expected much more.

Restaurant had no interest in taking a reservation to serve a party of 18-20 for a 90th birthday celebration during Sunday brunch hours at 2 PM in December. I'm glad business is so good for them.. I'll never go back!!
