A word from George Ultra Lounge and Wine Bar
George Lounge is the Godfather of Vancouver’s vibrant cocktail scene. A heated, covered patio transitions into a room of red velvet, blown glass chandeliers and an underlit onyx bar top. The kitchen style island behind the bar covered in fresh fruit, herbs, syrups and infusions anchors the award winning cocktail program. The food menu has been called George's 'secret weapon.’

  • We wanted to drink! But couldn't...

    Was a busy Saturday night and great weather to be on the patio - perfect for girls night out. We wanted to drink and eat. BUT, half the time our server was nowhere to be found. And when we did order, it seemed to take forever and one our drinks went to the wrong table so we had to order that drink again. The serving staff just seemed so disorganized albeit friendly. We wanted to order more drinks more but since it took so long, we decided to go elsewhere. I'm hoping it was an off night since the place came recommended to us. And I will say the food and drinks were very good. I will try this place again but if the service is the same, I can't say I would go back a third time.

    We went there for dinner. Service was not too bad except we think the waitress made a mistake on the order because she was not very attentive when we order. We ordered medium rare steak but it was almost well done. The table next to us had the same order and the steak looked great.

    We popped in for some highly recommended cocktails, and ended up staying for a few hours! Inside has a gorgeous Vegas like feel, but we opted for the patio. Stayed for wine (lots to choose from) and an amazing dinner. Best steak I've had in ages! Great service, and atmosphere, will definitely be back!

    The service and food were exceptional! Throughout the dinner of delicious beet salad, to the mouth watering steak and scrumptious salmon, the staff at Georges made our Valentines evening extraordinary. Special shout out to Kimberly and Stephanie.

  • Dine Out

    Dined on 2/1/2014
    Went with the girlfriend as part of Dine Out. Was pleasantly surprised that we could order off of either the George or Brix (which is upstairs) menus. I ordered off of one and the gf the other. The food was good, service average, and noise level was low, but we were sat in the back area. I suspect that it could be noisier out by the bar. Definitely plan to go back and try some of their cocktails.

    Went for dine out, the good definitely was not worth it.. I did not have high expectations but after a three course meal going for poutine and enjoying that more is saying a lot. Go somewhere else for dinner and stop here for drinks after. Has a really nice atmosphere.

    Dined on 8/16/2013
    Located in Yaletown I figured this would be a hot spot - wrooong. We arrived at 8pm and it was empty - stuck around for an hour for some drinks and appies and was still empty, so we left to go somewhere else. Drinks were very small and very expensive - same with most of the appies. Great for older couples that want to go somewhere romantic and quiet.

    Food , ambiance was good .. But did not get the service Attention I would have hoped to see from Yale town It was sparse and not very attentive for a birthday dinner . I however would come back and try it again The fire light is spectacular . Sorry just being honest And myself being in the customer services sales industry .. It's a HUGE reason why people return or continue using Products ....

    Reservation: Had a 9pm reso for a group of 7, my friends birthday, got seated at 9:15...I don't mind, but others may be particular about that. Service: Drinks took forever, when they arrived, they were wrong, when we commented about it the server said "well you already drank half of it" My husband went to the washroom, while we were all at the table and the bartender chased him thinking he was leaving without paying, even though there was 6 of us sitting at the table! I also paid for my friends birthday meal, and the server also took $50 from her!..I have serious problems with that!

    We came to George's Ultra Lounge for my birthday. I had 12 friends with me. Unfortunately they had trouble accommodating my large group and didn't make any effort to squeeze my friends in for the special occasion which left them sitting outside of our table. Also, the menu was extremely small and not consistent with the online menu. I looked at the menu online before selecting this location however they told me that four months ago they took off all the fire roasted pizzas. (Which is what I was most looking forward to). They also added the gratuity to our bill which was upsetting because the server didn't deserve the huge tip we were forced to give her. Another thing that was kind of annoying was the kitchen wouldn't do any substitutions.
