    I'm still thinking about how amazing the food was. It was the first time I agreed to try pate with my Wife. She loves it and I never liked it as a kid. To settle an age old, 'try it again argument,' I did. It was incredible! We had to have dessert to top it off. It was fun to get warm, fresh donuts (and chocolate sauce) after a gourmet meal. 5 Stars!

    The food, in our case the trout, was tasty and cooked appropriately, but nothing exceptional. One party had the scallops and thought they were excellent. Noise level was so loud as to be distracting from the meal, and we sat in a back corner. Probably the relatively stark walls had something to do with that. Service was very good.

    I have only been here twice and both times it was fantastic. The restaurant focuses on seafood. The fish tacos and tuna meatball pasta were both excellent. The dishes are creative, high quality & reasonably priced. I recommend this restaurant 100% and will be returning soon.

    Service and the food was very good, we especially enjoyed their specialized gin and tonics! Smaller portion options allowed me to try more things on the menu and satisfied our seafood craving. We went on a weekend night, and we loved that there was free/accessible street parking everywhere.

    Friendly and fun with great food! We tried this place because it touted organic and sustainable fare. It was a pleaseant surprise-nothing stuffy or presumptuous about the staff and the food was wonderful. We've already recommended Georges to friends and family.

    I had the Idaho trout (second time) and it was delicious, served with mashed potatoes and spinach--wanted to lick the plate clean! Incredible. Service was perfect--there when we needed him, yet not interrupting us every 5 minutes.

    Had an early lunch with my husband to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. While food was fine and personnel was friendly, our waitress was not. She seemed to be rushing us out of the restaurant even though there were empty tables around us. In fact, she didn't even ask if we want any desserts, which we were looking forward to. She just gave us the check as we barely finished our meals without even asking if everything was ok or if we want anything else. Needless to say, we just left and gave minimal tip due to the lack of service and abrupt demeanor.

    A friend of mine took our office mate out to lunch because she was retiring. We were served immediately and did not feel at all rushed. The service was good, the food was also good, so I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to have a casual lunch.

    visited this spot during DAT and it was our favorite of the 4 restaurants we tried.. Service and food were great! started with a racer 5 beer from san diego which you don't see everywhere and is delish. appy's were the grilled artichoke special and ono ceviche both very good but the choke was undercooked a bit. it was replaced quickly and without question. mains were tuna and scallops both melt in your mouth. dessert was their homemade hot sugar donuts which were plenty to share and oh so delicious. liked the atmosphere and vibe of the place and will be back.

    The specials (the cioppina and pizza) were really tasty. Perfect. Everything else we ordered was really salty and pretty inedible. The mixed drink I ordered (blueberry bubbles) was nothing special but wasn't bad; it was decent. Service was also spotty. The pizza came out but the waitress didn't provide us with any fresh clean plates.

    The concierge at our nearby hotel recommended the restaurant as a good place for fresh seafood. Found the menu extremely limited with not much variety. The ambience was just OK. Very loud in spite of being small. The food was tasty but not well presented.

    We had an early lunch and it was wonderful. We had the trout and the tacos and both were excellent. Our server was very efficient and very pleasant. The decor is modern but comfortable although by the time we left it had gotten quite noisy. We will be going back for lunch again to try other dishes.

    We had dinner here on a Friday night and found that it was crazy crowded like much of the FiDi at that time. We loved the grilled artichoke and the ono ceviche. The house made tonic paired with any of the locally produced gins is a must try! Service was nice but a little slow--I think we were "out of sight, out of mind" since we opted to sit outside. Would come back!

    This restaurant is one of the worst I went in the last 10 years! First when I looked online there are completely other offers then on the menue in the restaurant. The starter was greezy and not good. The fish I had was burned and completely over salted! The sauce was one of the worst I ever had and the only positiv part was the decoration. The atmosphere is not great and the kitchen is to close yo the table. The wine was so so and the overall price is far to high depending on the quality. Overall my stomach was not doing great after the visit. Never again.

    Service was not good today - not sure what the problem was - but she was not on her A game today. Service was slow. Food coming out of the kitchen was slow. Didn't feel like there was much attention to making sure we were all happy. Acoustics seemed worse than usual - very noisy. Overall, not what I normally expect at Georges - I love the food, usually love the service, but every restaurant has a bad day, and unfortunately we got to experience it with them today....(:

    Nice place, but nothing to rave about. I had the infamous fish tacos. I guess I'm spoiled by a dive on the Peninsula that had fish tacos that are amazing. The service was prompt, wine was pricey per most restaurants, and my guest liked her seared ahi tuna. Would I go back? Maybe, but nothing memorable on this trip.
