  • "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."

  • "I eat out with some regularity and have enjoyed many fine meals. Out group of four ordered numerous small plates to share, one steak entre, an two desserts. With so any different items ordered, I would expect 1-2 to fall short. However, every dish we had was amazing! I would highly recommend this restaurant to all."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Overall, Kitchen on George easily tops the list as best locally owned restaurant in Mobile. Our party of six, received optimal service from Alissa. 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."

  • "This was our second visit and we brought friends. Wine and food were great, and service was excellent. The peach creme brûlée was exceptional."

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food was great! The staff (our waiter was amazing) handled our small group of seven with ease and was able to intuit when to give information. Thanks for a lovely meal. I only say it is noisy because the next table had tired children. Other reviewers may say there was noise because of our table! Lol!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food was Fantastic... Service was great! The only drawback from the dining experience was the lack of privacy. I felt like I could hug the patron beside me. The tables are so close together. It was really difficult to hold a conversation. Everyone is competing to be heard. Overall... it was a great dining experience and I would go back.."

  • "This nice little gem of a restaurant is located in midtown Mobile in a quaint neighborhood. A teaching outlet for Virginia College Culinary school, the food and service is always top notch. Highly recommnended."

  • "Kitchen on George was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend it! I found it on Trip Advisor as I had not been to Mobile for an overnight stay in years. I enjoyed everything I had. 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"

  • "It is nice to see that free standing, non chain owned places like this can be run efficiently and provide an excellent product. This is one of the best dining encounters I have experienced in Mobile."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Overall the experience was great. The only thing I would have liked to be different is how cramped I felt in the back section of the restaurant in the corner room. Once the room was filled with guests at the other tables it felt cramped."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The food was wonderful, service great, and most of all we weren't rushed. We had a leisurely, relaxing dinner. I have traveled a lot, eaten in many fine restaurants and would rate this one as a true neighborhood gem."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I thought the food was absolutely delicious. The small bowls on the left hand side of the menu were to die for--fried okra--out of this world--crawfish and squash--soo delicious-the shrimp and grits was a delicacy."

  • "My wife and I were looking in Mobile for a local place to eat while on our honeymoon. I stumbled upon this gem. I have not had as good of an eating experience from top to bottom than this place. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. We got blackened shrimp and grits with goat cheese. That was the best shrimp dish I've ever had. If we ever venture back we will be overly ecstatic to have dinner there again"

  • "My fiance and I visited late on a Sunday. We found the restaurant mostly empty, but they were very friendly and accomodating of our reservation. We had the duck confit spring rolls which were tasty, but not memorable, and the blackened shrimp and grits for an appetizer. The grits were awesome with a goat cheese base, I don't even normally like grits. For our entree we shared the steak, and it was amazing. My fiance still talks about it days later. I think we will be back."

  • "Dining at Kitchen on George is a real treat! This time, I had Crawfish stuffed mirliton with Louisiana crawfish tails. Hello, where have you been all my life? Chef Carl Tilley never fails to disappoint, and we also tried the crab cakes, tempura okra, and oysters. We polished off these, with room for main courses including the fresh from the Gulf grouper. When these folks say they serve fresh seafood, they are not kidding! Dessert was also a treat of sumptuous bread pudding. But perhaps the true hallmark of this restaurant is the unique balance of service, ambiance and local neighborhood feel. Combined with food that never fails to excite the taste buds, this truly is both a neighborhood gem, and the best restaurant Mobile has to offer. WOW!"

  • "The Gulf Coast is supposed to have good food, right? Wrong! Food in the south has been a big letdown. But Kitchen on George was so good that I thought I was eating in New York again. If you are not originally from the south, or know that there is more to food than BBQ and the deep fat fryer in a hole in the wall, then Kitchen on George is the place to go. Food and service are both excellent."

  • "Kitchen on George was recommended to my wife and I by friends. We went and were not disappointed! From the Goat Cheese salad to the most tender and delishious steak, topped of with Creame Brûlée - the entire experience was great! The service was great and very friendly staff as well. Would definitely return, and soon."
