Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went here for my brother in-laws birthday February 10, 2024 and got charged for our bill and and extra $108 on our credit card. I have contacted the manager several times concerning this overcharge. They say they have a record of only charging us...for our $104 bill. Well why was my credit card charged an extra $108 then by the Concourse Restaurant? This is unacceptable! I’ve been waiting since February for them to make this right.More

There Sunday brunch has always been special. The location itself is a treasure. The experience of walking in and seeing the stained glass ceilings, the marble, the solid wood paneling and the Edwardian architecture is always a nostalgic blast of yesteryear. They literally don't make...them like they used to. The brunch itself is full of everything I could want, from banana fosters, fresh made donuts, to actual healthy food such as a variety of fish, eggs, to scrumptious fresh portions of beef, pork, turkey. We usually have a member of the party who is allergic to nuts, and they can always find good food to eat here. The restaurant usually has the chef come out and talk about can and cant's with us. Highly recommend, but if you want to be here on say Mother's Day, or some other holiday, book in advance! Fair warning.More

Located in a historic former train station, we enjoyed Brunch on graduation weekend, crowded, busy, yet the best I’ve ever experienced. Fresh donuts, waffles, omelets, pasta, buffet, chocolate fountain, desserts, seafood and more. Service was excellent, quality of food for a buffet was outstanding. Mimosa...with fresh juice. Reservations are a must.More

The restaurant gets 2 stars because it's a unique venue, then another star because the waiter was friendly. But that's where the good news ends. The service was horrifically slow from start to finish -- think three hours for a dinner that should have taken...one and a half. Our waiter spent more time chatting at tables than he did taking and delivering orders. The drink orders were bungled; correcting the bar's mistake took another 15 minutes. As for the food, memorable but for all the wrong reasons. The "seafood chowder" looked like chili, tasted like cat food, and smelled just plain old. The salads were soggy and overdressed. The halibut was no better than the fish served on a McD's sandwich. All of this is a crying shame. We've been to this restaurant for brunch and really enjoyed it. But we'll never return for dinner. An awful experience.More

Last Friday night we visited here for our Valentine's dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We had a 6:15 reservation and while the place was busy, it didn't seem like all tables were full. The service was slow but our waiter was very friendly...and made up for it. We started with drinks, oysters and the coconut shrimp. For main meals we had the shrimp and scallop risotto and crispy duck with vanilla mashed sweet potatoes. EVERYTHING was amazing. The drinks were tasty, entrees were delicious and even the sides were to die for. We wish we would've taken doubles to go. We had a lot of fun in Pittsburgh and did a lot while visiting but couldn't stop talking about our meals haha! I would definitely recommend this place when you're looking for a fancy night out. The venue has a beautiful grand room, but we sat in the side room with views of the city and bridges which we think was even better. Definitely check this place out if you haven't already. While the food was upscale, we thought the prices were reasonable.More

My friends and I were excited to get the chance to dine at the Grand Concourse finally. Unfortunately, the experience was lackluster at best and the likelihood of returning is slim. The restaurant is in a great location, easy to get to, with plenty of...parking options nearby. We made reservations, arrived at 11:30, and were greeted (if you would call it a greeting) by a gentleman whose demeanor indicated this was the last place on earth he wanted to be. We were guided through the restaurant to our table, providing us the opportunity to admire the facilities’ wonderful architecture and decor. Sadly, we were seated in the back in what struck me as overflow seating. The view of the railroad tracks detracted from the river view. We were greeted by our server who did a fantastic job until more tables arrived. As more guests arrived, the wait staff seemed overwhelmed. We ordered our meals. The salad arrived right away. The main dishes would take almost 50 minutes from the time we ordered. When the food finally arrived, it was underwhelming. My steak was barely warm, and the potatoes were room temperature at best. Beyond that, it just didn’t taste that good. No one at my table was remotely impressed or pleased with the taste of the food. Honestly, I have had better NY Strips at chain restaurants for half the price. I am unsure if we just came at a bad time, but our experience was nowhere near as positive as those shared by others providing feedback.More

We had an excellent time at the Grand Concourse. We started with drinks. I had the Smoking Dragon. It was delicious. For an appetizer we shared the Calamari Fritto Misto. It was very tasty. It had pickled peppers , chipotle aioli and a honey/sriacha glaze....The calamari were light & fried nicely, but the aioli and glaze is what took it up a level! For our entrees (between the three of us) we ordered the Applejack Sea Bass, the Dynamite Sea Bass and the Alaskan King Crab legs with an added lobster tail. Everything was delicious. I have to say if I had to re choose for myself I would go for the Applejack sea bass. I felt that the Dynamite was a bit bland in comparison. However, that may be because I swapped the coconut ginger rice for the wild rice risotto as I dont love ginger. The service was a bit slow, but it was a Friday night and our waitress was friendly. Overall we were extremely happy with our dinner and service. We will 100% return.More

Dinned here on a Sunday night and enjoyed our experience. Started off with the scallops and crab cake appetizers. Scallops were amazing in flavor and presentation, def the Best part of the meal. The crab cake,lump, was ok on the smaller size and for the...price and would not order again. Got the Caesar salad which lacked flavor seemed light on the dressing and the anchovies were just thrown on top of the salad which tells me they don’t make the dressing from scratch which should have the anchovies mashed into the dressing. Entrees were the Seabass and Duck. My seabass was ok only a 5-6oz portion which was served with risotto and zero vegetable on the plate. My gf duck was cooked perfectly, crispy, with a generous portion of duck with mashed sweet potatoes and once again no vegetable served?? Plate presentation could have been cleaned up also. The drinks are a bit steep on price, my gf smoked manhattan is mostly just a show for a basic manhattan. The desserts disappointed as they seemed very manufactured and not homemade. Our view was great as we sat along the river with a view of the city!!! Our waiter was good, but did forget an espresso but other than that pretty attentive. All in all a nice dinner but a few small things need attention at such a nice restaurant bring to a 5 star rating. Would def return to dine here!!More

It was “Pittsburgh Restaurant Week” and the Grand Concourse was heavily advertising their special 3-course Prix Fixe menu (starter, entrée, desert). After my wife and I were seated, we ordered our starters (soup and salad), our entrees (double cut pork chop and shrimp & crab...carbonara) and desserts (pumpkin cheesecake and key lime pie). As we were finishing our starters, our server informed us that they were out of the pork chops, although disappointed, my wife ordered the shrimp & crab carbonara. The shrimp & crab carbonara was totally flavorless. It had no cheese (carbonara with no cheese?) and no crab. We were told that they had also run out of crabmeat. To top it all off, they also ran out of pumpkin cheesecake and key lime pie. When I asked to speak to the manager, he apologized and said they didn’t want to order too much food and have it possibly go to waste. They still had another day to go for “Pittsburgh Restaurant Week” and they had already run out of food. The only positive spot in our evening was that we had an excellent server (Gwen). Four weeks prior we had taken our niece here for her birthday dinner. The restaurant advertised Crispy Duck. We all love duck. Needless to say, they ran out of duck that night. Our advice is to stay away from the Grand Concourse restaurant. Their food is terrible and whatever you want to eat, they will have run out of it!More

This is our second time for their Sunday brunch. First time was a while ago and wonderful - the server explained in detail what stations and food they had, where the stations were, gave us tips on what to do, etc. Today we brought two...friends who had not been here and asked the server if she could explain the buffet a little to us - because I remember it was so helpful last time, but we still kinda got overwhelmed and also couldn't find a couple things (like their donut station). She said, I kid you not, "it's a buffet so you go get your own food." I said we know it is a buffet, and we know what a buffet is, but if she could just tell us what to look for and where the various stations were. She said she doesn't know bc they switch it up. She was short and rude. It made us feel stupid and left us dumbfounded and embarrassed. The dirty plates were not picked up until we asked. We realized the experience is not always how good the food is, but also so much of how you are treated and served. A shame. Won't be recommending the Sunday brunch to anyone anymore like we used to. If you do go, you will see why the server giving you a little guide in the beginning is important. It's not a typical set up; the various stations are set up throughout the lobby and bar and other nooks and cranny. Today I saw the pasta station I had forgotten about. It is hard to explain, but with the crowd in the windy area, it is very easy to completely miss a couple stations. Maybe today's experience was tainted by the negative experience, but the food seemed not that great either. Will not be returning with this bad taste in my mouth.More

We have been coming here for years on my birthday and have spent family Christmas and Easter here, The food has always been over the top with the most flavorful meals we have had anywhere in the state of Pa, The crispy duck, elk chops...and fillet steaks and sea food dishes are top of the line, the coconut shrimp is fantastic with the corn chutney sauce a must have, But this year was some what a disappointment this time we went for my 61st birthday dinner a little earlier than usual because of Pittsburgh light up night when the city gets crowded for the event but what surprised me was when they seated us the sun was reflecting off the building across the river and straight into the window and blinding everyone in the room facing the windows, we asked to be moved and from then on it was as if we where a burden to them, I ordered a pomegranate martini and it tasted more like lime juice than pomegranate ,I ordered the prime rib and my wife had the fillet minyan, her steak was done to perfection but the asparagus needed to be cooked a little longer to soften it more, the smashed red potatoes where nothing spectacular but tasty, my steak was so raw it was cold as if it never was heated and was riddled with gristle strings making it impossible to cut and had so much fat on it I would say 30% of it was fat and gristle not worth the price paid, the shrimps came out cold as well, the service was slower than it has ever been and the place was not yet crowded our server was ok but let us hang in limbo for a long time to bring a refill of ice tea for my wife she seemed to be more interested in the larger party sitting by us, we left her a nice tip though we felt it was not earned. I understand that with all the covid 19 viruses going round and it is hard to get people to work and a lot of places are short handed but their seemed to be plenty of help there that night hopefully things will get better soon for all of us then we will return.More

Beautiful building. Drinks were good. My salad and calamari appetizer were good. Bread was okay. The mahi-mahi was very blah and the broccoli was nearly raw. No interest in taking leftovers, though usually I hate wasting food. The waitress seemed tired and sick of working.

We had a reservation for 8:15. When we arrived we were told there was an hour wait. Also, the main dining room was reserved for a wedding. For this caliber of restaurant, why didn’t anyone call to forewarn us? Why do we leave a contact...number? After speaking with the manager, we were seated 20 minutes past our reservation time. Then we sat at our table for another 20 minutes before the server showed up. The server was rushed and in turn, rushed us. We were told drinks that were listed online were not available but I think he just didn’t want to be bothered. Prime rib was sold out. I ordered coconut shrimp. There was barely any sauce on it and only a trace of salsa that it was supposed to be served with. The vegetable was broccolini I believe and it was tasteless and barely cooked. The rice seemed to be Uncle Ben’s. The service was just so bad and the food nothing special. I live in Pittsburgh and sorry to say, but I’ll never go back.More
