    Georges is right around the corner from Le Meridien, where we were staying. It's a small place, tucked mid block on Sansome between Clay and Sacramento. The menu is varied and tight, and all the selections seem well thought out. We started with oysters, which were fresh and reasonably priced. I had the Chilean seabass, which was delicious and well-executed. I finished with the "drunken" Affogato, which was perfect. The experience was enhanced by the wait staff, including a visit with the bar manager, who explained his process for making the homemade tonic which was part of the gin & tonic. Overall it was a great experience, and I have no doubt we will be back in the future.

    I found Georges on Opentable and thought it looked interesting. I don't go downtown all that much and thought it would be an adventure. We arrived for our reservation right at the end of happy hour. The place was jumping. Very nice ambiance, although a bit loud. Our waiter was friendly and attentive; although not overly so. Each menu item we had was both beautiful and tasty. I would most definitely go back.

    I've been walking past this place for years and only tried it yesterday at the suggestion of a friend. The food was delicious and creative. The presentation was also good. The service was fantastic and they were very accommodating to my change from a party of 4 to a party of 6 with very short notice. I will definitely be back

    Service is excellent at Georges and the food is sublime. I had the oyster shot (so good that one is not enough), tuna crudo, and day boat scallops as well as their handcrafted cocktail "Brother Bill". I'd go again in a heartbeat.

    I have been going to Georges for a few years now and it never fails to please. Whenever I bring friends, they invariably love the place. After years of ordering the tuna on a chickpea cake, which is delicious, I ordered the tuna "meatballs" on mint pasta. Fabulous! Also, my favorite red wine is available by the glass--Truchard Tempranillo.

    I treated myself to dinner here on a business trip this week. I tried the ceviche and the pork belly appetizers as my main dishes. Both were outstanding. The pork belly was so tender and delicious. I had a great little meal at the bar and I'd definitely bring coworkers back here if we're ever in town again!

    Located in center of financial district I expected stuffy,up tight, predictable atmosphere. Amazingly laid back friendly, casual, personal service. After an amazing dinner seasoned to perfection, the chef came over to visit then reappeared with a small tear for desert( unexpected) that was to die for---we are eager to return.

    We dined as a big group and had a wonderful experience. Except oysters that were way too salty, the rest of the meal was excellent. I especially liked the creative pairing of scallops with pomegranate seeds. Although the menu is somewhat limited, you can find something that would satisfy your palate.

    What can I say other than that our party of 6 was seated for our 7 p.m. reservation at 7:50; that the maitre'd/waiter offered no real apology for the delay but did say that he was "spoiling" us by comping us an extra order of crab cakes (which were delicious, as was the calamari); that same waiter promised one of our party the last sea bass and called out this order to the chef, only to tell us later that it was "gone"; that our main course of scallops was not particularly flavorful. Conclusion: I would neither recommend Georges to a friend nor return here, there are far too many other restaurants in SF which have across-the-board delicious food and treat their patrons with more respect.

    I went with five coworkers for a business meeting. The appetizers were pretty good (artichokes, ceviche). The main courses were really good (sea bass, tuna, and scallops. And the desserts were really good (apple pie sundae, chocolate). I would definitely return. Be warned though that the place is pretty loud.

    Had a reservation on a Friday night, and they were able to accommodate our late arrival. Service was prompt, and we were able to finish well in time for a show we were going to, and the staff worked with our schedule. I had the ahi tuna dish, which I thought was very flavorful, and my wife had the salmon dish, which she thought was fabulous. We shared a ceviche appetizer, which was unique and also good. Recommend to sit near the back of the restaurant if you prefer it to be a little quieter. Prices were reasonable and they had a decent wine selection. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

    Three gal friends try to get together for lunch at least every two months. This is out go-to place. They have a seasonal salad that is out of this world. This time of year it is the Wild Salmon Salad. Absolutely delicious - every single bite. One of my friends had the heirloom tomato salad and loved it. This is just about the end of the heirloom season, however. Perfect place to gather for a great lunch, especially when you don't have much more than an hour for lunch. The noise level was higher than we remembered the last few times. We will always go back here.

The food is innovative, the wait staff knowledgeable, and management is present at the restaurant. Solid bar as well! Not a very big place, so you are better off with four or less in your party.

    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.
