It really depends on what type of concierge service you looking for.
Yes they hold tables and certain agreements with some of the high end restaurants. They have been able to get reservations to places that people were not able to get themselves.
The other benefits include things like ticketing. When the box office is sold out, they use brokers... They will do it through a reputed supplier they deal with continuously and are reliable. The card will be charged with no risk of worrying about fake tickets, disputes and charge backs.
Because American Express is also a franchise and have offices around the globe, you will have an international netwok incase your traveling overseas. So if you are in Europe or Asia, your US concierge team will call them in order to get your restaurant reservations, theater/sport tickets, flower/gift deliveries, luxury items etc.
P. S. Don't forget travel benefits like lounge access, FHR program (a program they use with there partnered hotels), travel insurance etc.
Can't go wrong with the upgrade!
