    We came upon this gem by chance in a quiet residential neighborhood. It was quite a find -- so good that we went back two nights later. The first light I have the "Alabama Jerk Catch of the Day," which was grouper. On the second visit it was the "Pontchartrain Catch of the Day," which was flounder. Both entrees were sophisticated and delicious.

    We went for brunch on a Sunday. After reading several reviews about how great the place is, I made reservations for 11:30. We showed up at 11:00 and had no problem being seated immediately. After an amazing bowl of grits, succulent snapper, and ridiculously good bread pudding (it was my friend's birthday, so the waiter brought out his portion with a candle on it!), we spent much less than anticipated and enjoyed the food immensely. For brunch, the Kitchen on George is tops, complete with fantastic, quick service and delicious options.

    I am in town fairly often from Houston to visit with family. I found Kitchen on George via Open Table and haven't stopped smiling. Have brought family members and been wow'd. Service may at times be a bit slow, but it's not as if the servers are lax - this is a busy place! Even so, Chef accommodated a request to divide a portion so my mother and sister could try a certain dish. Thank you, Chef. The menu is smart, the portions good-size and I was pleased to find an unoaked chardonnay available. The dirty martini wasn't bad either, especially as Zach, (a delightful server with great competence) brought along the extra olives I begged for. Pricing is eminently fair and I love the self-park element!

    Another great evening at the Kitchen on George. We tried outdoor dining last Friday (early September: warm weather, some visiting flying beasties but no mosquitos) and enjoyed a quiet meal with great food and ambience. Every selection we've tried over four visits have been tasty and the portion size allowed for fun trying new things and sharing items with others at the table. Great wait staff. No other restaurant in Mobile comes close.

    My wife and I really enjoyed dining here for our 22nd anniversary. We shared several small dishes and were able to sample several appetizer-like portions. The shrimp and grits and the crab cakes were standouts. Nice ambience in an historic neighborhood not far from beautiful Oakleigh and Washington Square. Our waitress was very attentive. The only negative would be the cramped quarters, which contributes to noise somewhat, but don't let that keep you from dining here. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Mobile.

    My server Travis wrote down how I like my martini, that was a good start. I came in already having reviewed the menu online, but I allowed myself to steered toward the Pontchartrain Catch of the day. I was not disappointed. It was excellent. To top off the dinner I had the bread pudding.

    Excellent food, nice atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The entire staff including the wait staff are associated with Culinard culinary institute so your server is intimately familiar with the entire menu and everything that goes into each dish. Great restaurant in a neighborhood setting. Have never had a bad meal and will continue to dine here.

    I am a foodie and love fresh seafood and cook alot myself, but could learn alot from the Culinary Students in the kitchen with their great sauces that compliment the fish. Had the Red Snapper and friend had the Grouper and both dishes were great with the Snapper winning a close race! Finished with the Chocalate Creme Burlee infused with Cayenne! Who would have thought but they pulled it off! Will be my go to resturant while in the area, sorry Wash House!

    This restaurant compares very favourably with the best restaurants in New York City. The fresh caught local fish is a must and there were several kinds and preparations to choose from. Serving sizes of the main course are perfect--not too much and beautifully presented. The small plates are also most tasty -- we had oysters and a Caesar salad.

We were pleased with her knowledge of ingredients for the those with food allergies and the staff's ability to accommodate for us. The creativity and quality of ingredients were excellent! A wide spectrum of choices on the menu allowed everyone to enjoy a wonderful meal. We will return again and again!

    We have visited Kitchen on George several times and have generally found the food to be quite good, with a couple of exceptions. However, the restaurant seems to prepare their recipies for the customer who loves spicy (hot) food. I once had gumbo that was too spicy to eat. But, we always enjoy our visits and especially like their small plate selections.

    This was our third meal here and we continue to be impressed by the high quality and great consistency of this place given that it is, after all, a culinary school staff. Each dish shows quality and invention without being over the top in flash and complexity. We appreciate the modest portions which allow you to enjoy 2 or 3 small plates if you wish. The service has been very knowledgeable and conscientious and the space if very handsome. On the two occasions when we sat in the main room the din was deafening due to very large groups at one table. We will ask for the bar or outside in the future as the noise is the only thing that detracts from the nice ambiance.

    The restaurant was nice, the service and food were good, but the menu needs a category for larger portion items. I ordered an appetizer and the blackened snapper but the portions were so small that I actually left hungry. Granted the prices were probably appropriate for the portion size. I enjoyed the food and atmosphere but I would have needed to order 2 entree's in order to have been satisfied.

    Had dinner last night with my sister to celebrate her birthday. The Tempura Okra was awesome. I had the Goat Cheese salad & my sis had the Crab & Corn Chowder. Also awesome. We both had fish for our entre. Snapper was okay but the Ponchatrain Flounder was the best flounder dish I have ever eaten. The noise level was a little loud. Only complaint was that I asked if they had any dessert wines and our waiter said he thought they had one. What I was brought was not a wine but an after dinner liqueur....

    This is my third time here and I've enjoyed it every time. They don't throw meat in everything, so they are good for me who eats fish, but no meat and they also have vegan and meat dishes. Expect to pay a little more than most restaurants, but you will leave happy. Our group of four ordered several side dishes and a main dish and we shared everything. Many people do this and the restaurant accommodates it. When I eat here, I feel like I'm back in Europe. They know how to creatively combine flavors to create a pleasing taste.

    The food was tasty and well seasoned. Nice variety. Great service. My wife had to send back one of her dishes because it was still cold. But the noise level in the back room was unbelievable. We had a table for two and had to yell at each other to try to have a conversation. It ruined what could have been a real nice date night for us. The creme brulee was also still cold.

    When researching where to eat in Mobile, Kitchen on George kept coming up. As ex-New Yorkers, we set our bar high for restaurants. We were not disappointed. This is an adult restaurant for people who want to dine. The menu was interesting with many options. The wine list was short but had many choices at a reasonable price, and the service very professional. The noise level allowed for conversation. If we are in Mobile again, we would go back.

The only thing that I found unnecessary was the seasoning in the olive oil as the rest of the meal had so many wonderful flavors.

    This was our second time at Kitchen on George. We dined there around the same time last year as we were passing through to Florida. After our spectacular meal last year, we made sure to stop in again. It was again a delectable meal. Specifically, we tried the artichoke hearts, which had been fried in tempura batter. Delicious to share as they are rich. The tasso ham corn chowder was so good, my husband was tempted (though he did not), to take a piece of the dense bread and scrape the bowl with it. We again got the shrimp and grits (just like last time). We requested extra shrimp as we wanted a piece of shrimp with each bite of the grits. I am not a grits fan, but these are sooo good. The blackened grouper..excellent. We'll be back

    We were smart to make reservations. Seated immediately. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Tables are close to each other and the noise level was much higher than I would have liked. Appetizer was salmon on a bed of greens with pears and dried cranberries. Excellent choice. Main dish was Pontchartrain catch of the day (flounder). Enjoyed the dish but felt like the portion of fish was small. Had cheesecake for dessert and it was excellent. I plan to return and try something different.
