Diner Reviews
  • "I took some visitors based only on a recommendation of a co-worker- kind of scary to do. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find the praise well-earned. The food and presentation were great. Enough variety so everyone found something they liked. The service was excellent as well, reminiscent of European restaurants. Pricing was very appropriate. Beer choices a bit limited but I understand PA's are hot right now, just not my favorites. Parking was about what I expected for the area. Would have liked a bit more space around our dining area- felt like we were almost part of the group at the next table. But the staff handled the crowding better than we did- deftly weaving here and there. Maybe next time we can sit outside. "

  • "First off, the service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food, wine and drinks. The food was fresh, amazing, and served in a timely manner and exceeded all of our expectations. Great place for all occasions. "

  • "Kitchen on George keeps reinventing itself and the menu, keeping a few favorites, and adding new items. This time I enjoyed the Crazy for Crawfish--including Crawfish Etouffee, Crawfish Bisque, and Crawfish Enchalidas. My favorite--hard to say, they were all delish. Our service was spot on, (Thank you WIlliam and Peter), and while the restaurant had a full house, we were looked after as if we were the only guests there. Chef Carl Tilley has created another reason to come visit Kitchen on George, and I can't wait to see what he has up his sleeve for the restaurant's next culinary adventure. This fresh, local spot is one I plan to return to over and over. And next time, I WILL be on their delightful patio for an al fresco meal. A GREAT TIME!"

  • "We were recommended this place by a Springhill friend. It is indeed amazing. It is in a quiet neighborhood in a house that has been redone. The receptionist and waiters were extremely attentive. The manager was kind. Every item we ate was delicious. We started out with the appetizers and ended up ordering four. The desert was also delicious. It was a brownie (warm) which topped by ice cream."

  • "Delicious and perfectly-prepared dishes. Cocktails, small plates, and dessert complemented the meal. Salmon Miyosaki was cooked perfectly. Curry Tofu was outstanding. We started the night with Lemongrass-Ginger martinis which were superb and not too sweet. I had the Duck Confit Spring Rolls: melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The greens in our house salad were locally and organically grown. The service was attentive but I would have preferred more water during my meal. This was my only minor gripe......very minor. This is a great place for a romantic evening and very tasty food. We sat outside on a beautiful Spring night, adding a more relaxing environment to our already pleasurable evening. The dress code ranged from casual to business casual."

  • "My boyfriend and I wanted to try something different. My boyfriend was skeptical when we pulled up to the restaurant and it looked like a house. However, once inside the decor was very cozy and warm. We both ordered off the small plate menu and shared our food. I had a couple of glasses of wine. The bread pudding was really good! We definitely had the experience we were looking for that night."

  • "We had a great dinner at this restaurant! Nice ambiance, great service and food. Owner involved and wanted to make sure we were having a good experience. Apps were blackened shrimp and grits - amazingly creamy grit, hummus good. Had redfish ponchatrain which was very good and the others had pasta jambalaya that they let us customized and it was great. Definitely a winner and will be back!"

  • "You might want to add a few new menu items. How about baked macaroni? Fried green tomatoes? How about an all vegetable plate? How about some pulled pork barbecue? All these items are well loved in this area. It doesn't have to be nouveau to be delicious!"

  • "anniversary dinner, 745 reservation. gave our table to a couple at the bar, waited 40 minutes with a reservation. jambalaya dish was way too spicy and one fish filet blackened, but not by seasoning. drinks were good, app was great as was dessert. disappointed by a bad judgement call on our table and an inattentive chef."

  • "The inside looks like a cozy house, simply decorated with old black-and-white photos of the area. The menu reflects the south with an Asian and sometimes Caribbean twist; it's hard to choose your dishes because every single thing is appealing on paper. For my taste, the dishes are tasty and made well but they skew a bit too much toward glorified bar food, with a preponderance of fried items, heavy cream sauces and dips, and sugar-infused sauces and grains (e.g., in my quinoa kale side and in an otherwise enticing Tabasco vinaigrette -- why?). Setting aside my very awkward server from the last time I was there, service is perfect and professional, and the atmosphere is classy and romantic in a way that feels effortless."

  • "I came in town from out of state to have dinner with a friend I haven't seen in 20 years. I came ahead with flowers for the table. Front of house (Courtney & co) were great. Picked a seat ahead of time. But when arrived, we had a table of 8 right next. The place was more than half empty andI had to ask to squeeze by to get to my chair. MAJOR ERROR! Also, I had asked for a bottle of Pinot Grigiot to be at the table waiting for us at our appointed 6:15 reservation. No Wine, and the assigned waiter had no idea what was going on.... the food was good. not great. the location is surprising and awesome. would love to see more restaurants like this. but if you are going to tout a connection to a culinary school, you cannot drop the details."

  • "If you love a dining experience that is memorable from the time you walk in to the time you leave?Food, service, ambiance? Kitchen on George is for you. The menu changes seasonally with a focus on locally sourced items. I enjoyed the Blackened Shrimp and Grist with goat cheese, served over corm polenta. Yes, I went back the next night an ordered it again, with Redfish Pontrachartrain. Chef Carl Tilley loves to create delectable tastes and the love shows. This neighborhood gem is easy to find, just four blocks off Government Street in the heart of Mobile's Historic Oakleigh neighborhood. Free parking behind the restaurant was an added bonus. Whether your are a local fan or visiting, do not miss this gem in Mobile dining at it's finest! FAB-O"

  • "I was driving from New Orleans to Atlanta and planned an overnight stay in Mobile. I found Kitchen on George via an Open Table search. It was great! I eat very little gluten and dairy, and lots of fresh ingredients. The menu had several choices for me and I wrestled with whether to have several small plates or an entree. The food is made from scratch on site, and all seafood is from the Gulf. If I find myself in Mobile again, I'll go out of my way to eat at Kitchen on George!"

  • "The back of house is full if culinary students. But there's no signs of that thanks to the Exec Chef who made a point to visit with us. The food was excellent as was the service. It was a quick stop on our way home to New Orlens, and we couldn't have been more pleased."

  • "The food here is outstanding. Our waiter was new so given that service was adequate. We were told one of the specials was down to quantity 1. One of us wanted to order that. By the time the waiter got back to your table to take our order much time had passed and that special was no longer available. Those things happen when new waiters are in training. The other entrees were all very good so it ended up not being a problem. This was my second visit and I had highly recommended it to the group I was dining with and KOG did not disappoint. Will definitely be back...."

As soon as we arrived at our table, the host delivered a plate of fruit for our son, which we greatly appreciated. Our waiter was warmly polite, knowledgeable, and efficient. The blackened shrimp with goat cheese grits was the stand-out dish. We hope to return."

  • "We exected a special menu for Valentine's Day. The intial reception by the hostess and bar staff was excellent. My wife had a dirty martini which said was execellent. A larger selection of single malt scotch would have been better. The waite staff need some schooling on how to describe the item on the menu. We heard one staff call the Ponchartain sauce as a white sauce or an alfredo sauce which it is neither. The sauce was excellent and some of the best i have had. the balsamic for the salad was not up to the mark, it needed to be a good aged balsamic. We found in the overall it was a excellent evening and would return again. We have have great meals in in major cities and great meals. This could be the same with attn to details."

  • "I'm not very picky with my food, but I thought they really set the bar high. I had the curried tofu, which blended its spiciness with chopped peanuts, a flavorful combination. My girlfriend had the misoyaki salmon, which was succulent, especially because of the bed of quinoa kale pilaf. My mouth is watering just remembering it! I recommend the Kitchen if you're okay with $20 entrees."

Our waiter was friendly, helpful and efficient. I am pretty sure they served the best shrimp and grits I've ever tasted. I will need to come back when the weather is nice because I am told they have a lovely courtyard area. I also want to order off their regular menu because it all looked delicious"

  • "The food here is really great! The place stays packed, so, I recommend reservations. My wife and I like to go here for the food, but I would not recommend it as a romantic date night, as it is way too loud. That's not meant as a negative. The place stays crowded, so it gets loud."

  • "The food and service was outstanding. The décor is very nice and fits with the age of the building and the neighborhood. I will definitely return.
