A word from Rotisserie Georgette
The dining room combines casual comfort and sophistication with touches both rough-hewn and refined. The main attraction is the open kitchen’s rôtisserie ovens and their fine meats, poultry and fish turning over open flames. Abundant fresh vegetables, decadent potato dishes, heart-warming desserts, tempting cocktails & bites at the bar complete the picture. At lunch, we add generous main course salads and tempting pot pies, all in the spirit of Chef Chad Brauze's soul-satisfying French-American fare complemented by the warm welcome of your host, Georgette Farkas. The “ROTISSERIE TABLE” private room seats ten.

    We really enjoyed Rotisserie Georgette. Georgette, herself, greeted us with genuine warmth at the door, and the service throughout the evening carried through this warmth and care. Our waiter was friendly, efficient, solicitous but unobtrusive. The room and the clientele have an uptown vibe, but the experience is saved from stuffiness by airy blue and white French tiles along the back wall framing a view of the bright kitchen. We had the famous chicken with two sauces, as well as a special poussin with Marrakech spices. Everything was very well seasoned and cooked. The poussin was a favorite - very tender. Sides were wonderful - carrots, Brussels spouts and french fries. A little expensive, but that's expected in the neighborhood.

    A recent write up in the Dallas Morning News described chicken the way it "tastes in your dreams" and I have to agree. I know people that say they won't order chicken in restaurants, but this place will change their minds. Along with sides such as glazed carrots and french fries, simple ingredients are elevated and presented at their best. We stopped in for a late lunch and wished we had more time to linger with a glass of wine or a dessert. Next time we'll make sure the calendar allows for a more relaxed meal.

    I never order chicken in a restaurant but tried it here as that is their signature dish. Delicious with the fois gras. Next time would try the duck or the rabbit to see what they can do with them. Super service and friendly staff including bartender.

    We enjoyed a perfectly delicious and delightful dinner to celebrate my birthday. The hostess took note of my husband's request for a more private table; and the energetic and enthusiastic waiter took us through the menu and faciltated the ordering process. The delicious dishes arrived in a timely manner, and the dinner was topped off by a candle in our shared dessert with my name in chocolate decorating the plate. I can't wait to celebrate another special occasion at Rotisserie Georgette.

    We will be coming back. Signature rotisserie chicken was great. Must have rotisserie potatoes. A friend ordered the baby Brussels sprouts. I usually would never eat brussel sprouts, I tasted them, they were the best vegatable I ever ate. All the ice creams are home made, I had the pistachio cream, it was fantastic. Great wine options as well.

    Excellent chicken (tried several sauces--classic sauce provençale is best), even better rotisserie potatoes. I almost never order chicken when dining out, as making a good roast chicken at home isn't difficult. However, the one at Rôtisserie G is really great: perfectly cooked and seasoned, nicely carved--and the rotisserie potatoes were a highlight (be prepared for mega calories). If the tarte tatin is on offer, don't miss it: not overly sweet, served with a nice dollop of crême fraiche. It can feed 3-4 people.

    On my way home from ocean city maryland myself and my wife were really in the mood for a roasted 1/2 chicken and we came across your place on yelp, the place looked nice came across a few good reviews so we decided to try it. I'm sure you have plenty of good food but unfortunately our roasted chicken was really dry, it was horrible I myself would have never thought a place such as yours would ever serve such dry chicken.

    My friend and I had lunch prior to a Saturday matinee. I had read a favorable review in the New Yorker magazine. We both had the Poulet Frites because we like chicken and felt that this would be the best dish on the menu - were we wrong! The chicken was mediocre (and salty) and the French fries were so over-salted that we had to send them back. There was no salt or pepper on the table, so I guess they know that its never needed. The accompanying salad was just a handful of mixed greens (that you can get out of bag) with a little light tasteless dressing. Even the bread was poor. This dish was $29. The service and ambiance were very good, so my overall rating is for food.

    Having read about the new opening of Rotisserie Georgette in the New Yorker, we decided to try it out for lunch because we were staying close to the hotel! Everything was excellent!! The chicken and the potatoes were over the top! Wonderful and flavorful and done to perfection. The service was excellent and if you go at lunch and want to try their tart tatin, you need to request it in advance because it normally just is on the evening menu. We missed out but saw it served and it looked spectacular!

    Georgette Farkus has really opened a gem here. Coming from working with Boulud, she clearly knows what she is doing. Fantastic food and chicken prepared like I have never tried before. The potatoes (in fact, all the sides) are mouth-watering. And to boot, the waitstaff is top notch, happy and truly enjoyable.

    The Poule de luxe and the rotisserie chicken are so divine, and the ever changing sides so yummy, that we break our vow to try the other items on the menu every time we go to Rotisserie Georgette. Georgette is a wonderful host, the place is humming, and the wine list always impresses with unusual, well thought out finds.

    The prices are rather high. We had 3 different chicken dishes at the table and quite frankly we were underwhelmed, especially when considering the prices. The roasted lamb dish was disappointing, it should have melted in my mouth. It was chewy, Service is amazing.

    The food was very good and the service excellent. Something I do not like, however, is their cancellation policy. You must give a credit card when making a reservation and if you do not cancel within 24 hours, you are charged $50 per person. We were a party of 4, so if we had had to cancel at the last minute, it would have been a $200 charge. Reminds me of the airlines! ThAt alone may keep me from returning.

    Georgette was recommended by friends. We are from out of town and wanted a mid-town place that was not "busy-busy". It fit the bill exactly. Although full, it was never loud or distracting. Service was excellent and the food was better. The rotisserie format was not limiting; we had great salads and appetizers; and the entrees were exquisite. Highly recommend!

    The fois gras poele was fabulous and worth every penny, the fries were the best I have had since Paris and the chicken was, indeed, perfectly roasted. One small minus: the chicken itself wasn't super tasty. I read that the birds come from Pennsylvania, but given the care in the roasting, the chickens themselves could have brought more to the table.

    This is a very expensive restaurant, especially for the items being served. The Roasted Chicken was wonderful (half a chicken $24), Lamb Loin was good but not exceptional ($32), and Rotisserie Potatoes very good ($8). G's Salad was good ($16). Ambiance is nice. Worth a visit, but doubt that we will return. Service was good. A very nice wine list. People are dressed from very casual to business casual. You can order online for a picnic or pick-up.
